Trivia

Cora Beth Godsey always referred to her husband Ike as "Mr. Godsey". However, in episode 9.2 The Outrage: Part 2, when Ike and Corabeth Godsey are in bed to sleep, she called him Ike rather than the customary "Mr. Godsey". In episode 5.22 Corabeth says "Ike, It's Amy, she's not in her room" See more »

Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] It has always seemed to me that 1938 was the springtime of my life. I was engrossed in completing my novel and, as the words poured out, I felt as if the whole world was unfolding. It was a time of rising hope, not only for me, but for my grandfather.
