Olivia serves Jody cookies in a bowl, but his close-ups show the cookies on a plate.
Opening Narration: When I was growing up on Walton's Mountain the Great Depression cast its shadow over us as it did everyone, but we were more fortunate than most. We were a close knit family and the house that we lived in was as solid and secure as the mountain itself. Because I had always lived in it I took our house for granted, then, one hot summer afternoon I met others less fortunate. Through them I learned the real meaning of 'home.'
Olivia: Yes, Elizabeth?
Elizabeth: Can I sleep tonight without breathing?
Olivia: Why, some special reason?
Elizabeth: Uh huh, Jim Bob and I are going to have a breath-holding contest, and I thought I'd practice.
Olivia: Well, you can try, dear.
Closing Narration: Harley and Jody did put down roots in Walton's Mountain, and the romance that blossomed in a peach orchard was to flower and bear fruit of its own. Almost four decades have passed, but my own roots are still there, in that house where I was born and grew up with my brothers and sisters.
The German episode title is "Jody sucht seine Zukunft", meaning "Jody Looks to the Future".
