  • Quotes

    • Newcaster Frank: For the first time ever seen by human eyes, the planet Earth, rising over the moon.
      Walter Cronkite: Sort of puts things in perspective, doesn't it Frank? To think that there on that lovely glowing orb, wars are being fought, storms raging, people are being born, people dying, all our human conflict, our passion, our pain, being carried on, beneath that veil of clouded blue.
      Narrator: And suddenly I got this funny feeling. Maybe I was blowing this whole thing out of proportion. I mean, Lisa wasn't going to laugh at me. And anyway, what if she did? Did it really matter? And that's when I knew what I had to do. I just had to pick up the phone... and call her.
