John's 25th high school reunion is being planned; he thinks he is not successful, but at the reunion, everyone thinks he is the winner. John-Boy fears he will never make a living as a writer. Jim-Bob makes a profound comment.
Did You Know?
John Sr. joined the service in WWI after finishing high school (mentioned in other episodes especially season 8 "The Diploma"). If this is his 25th high school reunion it would make the year of the episode between 1940 and 1942 if he graduated in 1916-1918 before WWI ended but after US troops started going overseas. See more
[narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal
My father was a gentle man. One of the small things I always remember about him was a little trick he had of spinning a half dollar with one hand, usually without even thinking about it. One summer day almost forty years ago, he suddenly found he couldn't do it. As it turned out, it was a traumatic day for both of us.
Till We Meet Again
