Closing Narration: I had returned to the mountain once again to find the inspiration I needed to write. Soon I was back in New York City laboring over another book. And because of the renewed courage they brought me, I would never forget Miss Mamie and Miss Emily and their zest for life. (Scene change to exterior of Walton house) I hope that you will remember this house as I do: the mystical blue ridges that stretch beyond it into infinity; the sound of warm voices drifting out upon the night air; a family waiting; and a light in the window. Good night.
Opening Narration: On Walton's Mountain we marked time by the passage of the seasons. In autumn we built fires in bee trees to gather honey. Our lives ebbed during the winter when the earth slept. Spring crocus brought the first blossoms foreshadowing the abundance of summer with its sweetcorn and lightning bugs. Generations of living on the mountain yoked us to the rhythm of the land, a touchstone to the strength each of us carries within ourselves. I was to discover this when I left my home full of expectations, only to find that my destiny was not where I thought it would be.
The German episode title is "Nostalgie", meaning "Nostalgia".
