Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] There were many homecomings in my life, but the one I remember best followed a long spell in the hospital during World War Two. A visit home would be the final step in my recovery, and I looked forward to the comfort of those familiar surroundings. I never dreamed that I would bring the war with me, and that it would haunt me, even on Waltons Mountain.
