Opening Narration: Between two people in a good marriage there develops a kind of silent communication. Each knows what to expect of the other-when to offer strength, where to step lightly. It is this kind of predictability that makes the occasional surprise shine all the brighter in memory. As my parents' silver anniversary approached, my father was to reveal a side of his nature that years of hard work and sacrifice had kept secret. And in doing so, he made it an anniversary that none of us would ever forget.
Closing Narration: The pretty gazebo is gone now, burned to the ground in a forest fire that swept the mountain. But for all of us the memories remain of that night when our father and mother, after 25 years, danced and were newlyweds again.
The German episode title is "Ein ganz besonderer Tag", meaning "A Completely Special Day".
