Quotes

Narrator: [narration as John 'John Boy' Walton, Jr. reading from his journal] On Waltons Mountain, as our parents had before us, we grew up taking for granted the traditions that shaped our lives. When my sister, Mary Ellen, took a stand against a solemn mountain custom, it was a rebellion that rattled the complacency of generations. She was seventeen, but the custom was older than even my grandmother could remember.
