Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] Like most adages it is tried and true that fate makes our relatives, choice makes our friends, and it calls to mind a time when a relative of Corabeth Godsey swept through Waltons Mountain like an autumn hurricane, leaving both destruction and alike in her wake. All of this took place during a difficult period for Elizabeth who was entering womanhood, but feeling at times like a lost and lonesome child.

Great Episode!
5 June 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Pearls" is a great Walton episode for many reasons. The main part of the episode centers around Corabeth and her estranged sister Orma Lee, who has come to visit when Corabeth heads to Doehill because of her mother, Cordelia's, death. (As a side note, Ronnie Claire Edwards does a fine job of performing dual roles, Corabeth and Orma Lee.) Orma Lee is able to give helpful insight to a struggling Elizabeth, who, now 15, is finding it hard to grow up without Grandma, Grandpa, Mama, or Daddy. "The Pearls" shows in a way how much the Waltons have changed from Season 1 to Season 9, through the Depression and World War II, and how the younger Walton copes with the change. A great episode worth watching.
