    It was funny to see Grandma Esther's facial expressions when the genius called her and the family stupid for being Christian, and then to see Grandpa Zeb's aproach to calm her down. But the over-all funniest thing has to be the genius try to be the hottie McHottie to MaryEllen who at the time looked like an alien. But then the family starts to see that there's more to the genius than what they thought before, and so they try to help him see the light, and in the end, you can obviously see that he's heading in a new direction!

    • Opening Narration: In those trying years of the Depression the achievements of any Walton family member were a source of pride for all of us. But the visit to our home of an extraordinary young man gave us all a new, and perhaps more balanced, perspective in our views toward academic brilliance. It happened on a weekend when we were getting ready for a church bazaar.

    • Closing Narration: Lyle Thomason came back to stay with us several more times, and we enjoyed his visits very much. He did indeed prove to be a decent, kind, and very likable human being. But what pleased us even more, was that after that weekend, Lyle spent almost all of his free time visiting his own parents.
