      • Narrator: Once upon a time... life was simple. Cars were big... gas was cheap... front lawns were green. And everybody liked Ike. The good guys were good... and the bad guys were bad. You knew where you stood. Then... in nineteen sixty-eight... something happened. Something... big. I turned twelve years old. I entered junior high school.

      • Narrator: That was me. And these were my times. The three years between nineteen-sixty-eight and nineteen-seventy-one, I went to school. Here. Robert F. Kennedy junior high. Through those portals lay a world the likes of which we'd never seen before. The world of... higher education.

      • Narrator: The fact was... the teachers I had at RFK ranged from the ridiculous... to the sublime. From the exasperating... to the intimidating. From the ineffectual... to the indecipherable. It's just that, as with most adolescents... my real education began at home. From my family. My mother instilled in me a deep appreciation for the importance of family. And knowing you roots. Then, of course... there was my father. The man who'd taught me the intricacies of progressive parenting. My sister taught me the concept of independence. And, by accident of birth... ladies and gentlemen, my brother, Wayne. A pillar of support in times of crisis. All-in-all, I guess you could say my family was kind of a proving ground for the lessons of life.

      • Narrator: I learned a lot of things from a lot of people. Too bad I never learned to deal with the opposite sex. I really didn't understand girls. I mean - and let me be absolutely clear about what I mean... I... really... didn't... understand... girls. Let's face it - women were an enigma. But, in a lot of ways... so was life. And I was only in junior high.

      • Narrator: In the years between nineteen-sixty-eight and nineteen-seventy-one... a lot of people were tuning in, turning on and dropping out. As for me... I was busy just trying to survive junior high school. And it wasn't easy. I probably wouldn't have made it without my best friend - Paul Pfeiffer. Paul and I were inseparable. It was a relationship based on mutual support. OK, so we had the occasional difference of opinion. Somehow, we always managed to find our way home to each other. We didn't really have a choice in the matter. Like it or not, we were friends. Paul, me... and of course, Winnie Cooper. But of course, Winnie and I were more than friends.

      • Narrator: Those years were like a long journey for me. Looking back, it was a time when we were still very small. And the world seemed very big. And I think about those days again and again... whenever some blowhard starts talking about the anonymity of the suburbs... or the mindlessness of the TV generation. Because I know I'll never forget those times... those years of wonder.
