Episode Summary

EDIT
Life Goes On (and On and On)
AIRED:
The series finale, it leaps 4 years into the future to see Becca and Jesse marry, and then 10 years when Becca, now about 27 (still played by Kellie Martin) tells her son a story about what happened after graduating from high school. Corky doesn't graduate, but says, "I'll be back". Ray was the valedictorian of Becca's class. Jesse leaves for Europe, breaking Becca's heart, but returns four years later. It is not determined whether Becca's son was fathered by Jesse or not, but Becca expresses a desire to have Jesse's baby, saying that new treatments could make it possible. The question of who fathered this child is hard to answer as Becca says the final words of the series: "I love you, Jesse".moreless

  • Another show that needs a DVD release.

    A great show, was probably what lauched all the women networks as it was aimed towards women but in the end drew in many fans of all sexes and races. The show had the first Down Syndrome actor playing the role of Corky and he did an amazing job. I really think a show like this would be better if done now though. Cause the envelope back then was very tiny and didn't have much room for pushing. Corky isn't an outcast at all which let's be honest in today's schools that wouldn't be the case. You'd think you would have heard more mean comments towards Corky in the series. I think it would have really shown the hard times people suffering from Down Syndrome have to take on and over come.moreless
