    • Opening Narration: Few strangers ever came to Walton's Mountain. We got our news of the outside world from the radio or an occasional copy of a magazine. But I remember, when I was about seventeen, four visitors arrived and gave me my first unexpected glimpse of the other world beyond our mountain.

    • Tommy: Well, when the time comes for you to leave, John Boy, and it will, nothing will stop you. John Boy: How do you know that? Tommy: Well, once I had to make a decision about leaving home. It wasn't easy, you see. For me, too, there was a couple of things standing in the way.

    • Olivia: I will not have these people inside this house. John: Liv--can't judge people, where they came from, or what they wear... what they do. Now we never turned anyone away from this door; we're not going to start now.

    • Elizabeth: Where do goblins live? Jason: Oh, just about anywhere I reckon. Jim Bob: How about monkeys? Jason: Well, you wouldn't find any around here.

    • Jim Bob: and the goblins will get you if you don’t watch out. (Elizabeth screams)
