Trivia, Quotes, Notes and Allusions
Opening Narration: It was spring on Waltons Mountain, that special time when all of life seeks and finds its own renewal and strength. A time when the season, like the mountain, calls back those whose lives have taken them so many miles and years away from the land. One of those who was called back in that spring of 1933 was my mother's uncle. His name was Cody Nelson and he'd come all the way home from Cincinnati, Ohio.
Closing Narration: Cody's bank did re-open, and he was hired back to his old job in the Accounting Department. There he remained until his retirement a year later. Great Uncle Cody died in 1953, and Cordelia followed him within six months. There are many who believe that she died of a broken heart.
The German episode title is "Onkel Codys Werbung", meaning "Uncle Cody's Courtship".
