The Waltons (1971) s07e22 Episode Script

The Torch

You look kind of shook-up, Daddy.
You would, too, Jason, if you'd just seen a ghost.
The absence of a loved one can make the days seem endless and the nights all the darker.
Especially in spring when the weather is gentle and moonlight stirs the heartstrings.
During my mother's illness, our family sorely missed her presence, and without her, my father was a lonely, vulnerable man.
Mary Ellen.
You're getting to be like Mom for knowing who's coming in at what time.
I'm getting to be like her, also, by the fact that I can't get to sleep till everybody's home.
I kind of like it.
It makes me feel looked after.
How long are they gonna keep you on the night shift? I'm through for now, so you won't have to wait up for me for awhile.
It's all right, I can't sleep anyway.
This bed is getting lopsided.
I know, I have one just like it.
Good night, Daddy.
Good night, honey.
Jason, how did you sneak in? You get pretty good at it when you work nights.
How are things at the Dew Drop Inn, Son? Different.
Thelma's sold out and moved to California.
Now hold on, now.
What does that mean for you? I wish I knew.
I've only got a few more weeks to go before I graduate.
I need the money.
I'd be glad to help out if I could, Son.
Me, too, I've got quite a bit saved up.
Thanks, I appreciate it.
I've done it so far on my own.
I'd like to keep it that way.
Maybe the new owner will keep you on.
I'll find out tomorrow afternoon.
Right now, I'm bushed.
See you in the morning.
Good night.
Good night, Son.
Good night again, Daddy.
Good night, honey.
Sleep tight.
Excuse me.
My name's Walton, Jason Walton.
Are you the new owner? Mrs.
So, you're Jason Walton.
Did Thelma tell you about me? No but her books did.
Are you worth all this money she's been paying you? Thelma thought so.
She built this piano bar for me.
That's about the only thing around here I might not change.
I'm going to keep you, too, Jason Walton.
I'm glad to hear that, Mrs.
Thank you.
Do you think the regulars around here would mind if I remodel the joint a little? Well, to tell you the truth, Mrs.
Jordan, regulars are kind of outnumbered these days by the defense workers and the soldiers coming in.
I thought I'd knock through a couple of walls, extend the bar, make the dining room larger.
If you don't mind my saying so, my father has his own lumber business.
He might be able to help you out with the materials.
Sounds reasonable.
Do you think John could come by this evening? Sure, I'm sure he would.
Jordan, did I tell you my father's name is John? No, Jason, you didn't.
See you later.
Yes, ma'am.
Thank you.
Cindy, look.
Elizabeth, he's too old for you.
Besides, Ben gets mad if I even look at a soldier.
I didn't mean that.
It's just that I feel sorry for the Gls from Camp Rockfish.
I mean, if they get a day off, they don't have any place to go.
Well, you can't bring them all home.
Might be kind of fun, though.
But other towns have Red Cross canteens or a YMCA.
We don't have anything.
Camp Rockfish is new.
They'll have rec halls and day rooms later on.
Come on, we've got a lot of shopping to do.
Cindy, come here! Elizabeth, we're going to be late and I'm gonna get the blame! We could have our own canteen right here.
Right there.
Ike, don't you see? You'd be doing your patriotic duty if you let us open up a canteen.
Well, I'd be happy to do what I'm able, you know.
Godsey must be very cautious not to over do.
He has a weak heart, you know.
Yes, but we'd run it.
I have convinced Mr.
Godsey to give up some of his responsibilities as Director of Civil Defense.
Whatever he becomes involved in, he must be very careful not to overtax his strength.
Well, Corabeth, the kids would do all the work.
It would just give me a chance to do a little something for the war effort and, you know, without getting tired.
Well, you could be the senior hostess, Mrs.
You'd be helping lonely young men forget they're far away from home.
Well, I suppose you're right.
We must do all we can to help our brave, young men in uniform.
Okay, we can use my record player for music, and we can put up lots of decorations.
We can have refreshments.
And we can dance.
- Oh, that will be great.
I thought you were starting a canteen.
This begins to sound like a night club.
Well, it's got to be inviting or the Gls won't want to come - for any fun or excitement! - That's true.
How much excitement? Well, we'll have chaperones.
We will? I thought this was supposed to be fun.
Well, I can be a chaperone on the nights I'm not on-call at the hospital.
Daddy, you can come tell stories about the Great War.
That will keep the troops together.
If that doesn't work, I could always do a song and dance.
- We're serious.
- I'm serious! Daddy, I hear you're stepping out tonight.
No, no, I'm just going over to the Dew Drop Inn.
The owner wants to do some remodeling.
Oh, what does she look like? You know Rita Hayworth? Well, Mrs.
Jordan doesn't look anything like her.
But Jason said she's not bad.
For her age.
No, I don't even know the woman.
Better watch out, Daddy.
It's strictly business! Now, come on! Jason, I'd like to request an old song, but I don't think you'll know it.
Try me.
Oh, You Beautiful Doll? Sure, I know it.
It's one of Daddy's favorites.
He just came in.
I know.
Johnny, how you doing? Callie? What's new, Johnny? Callie, is it you? Whoa! Callie May! What are you doing here? That's right! Callie May is back in town.
When did you decide to leave the mountain, Callie? It was just about the time your daddy got married.
I wanted the city lights.
And I got my share of them.
I worked in joints like this from here to Florida and back.
I've been running saloons ever since.
How's Olivia? Well, she She got tuberculosis, as a matter of fact, a few months back.
She's resting but she'll be fine.
I'm sorry to hear that.
It must be hard on everybody.
Yes, it is.
Well, getting late.
Jason, you and me gotta be up early in the morning.
Jason, I like the way you play.
I hope you'll stay on.
Thank you.
I'll stay as long as I can.
I'll call you in the morning about remodeling the place.
Oh, can't you do it tonight? Callie May, you always want everything right away.
I think you'll find that I'm just as difficult to get along with as ever.
Welcome home.
- Thank you.
- Good night.
Good night, Callie.
We want Godsey Hall to look really nice.
It will look as though it had been gift wrapped.
Oh, yes, ma'am, may I help you? You'd better, Ike, or I'll tell Mrs.
Tate on you.
I beg your pardon? Mrs.
Tate? How could you forget your favorite high school teacher, Ike? Callie, Callie May! - Oh, you look good.
- Oh, you look great yourself.
Corabeth, this is Callie May, my old school mate.
Callie May, my wife, Corabeth.
Corabeth, Ike always was a lucky guy.
How do you do? And this is Elizabeth Walton, John's youngest.
You remember John Walton? Hello, Elizabeth.
Yes, I talked to John and Jason last night.
I own the Dew Drop Inn now.
You don't say! Yes, John's going to help me remodel it.
You don't say! She did say, Mr.
And this is Cindy Walton, young Ben's bride.
- Hello, how are you? - Hi.
Ike, I just stopped by to see if you have a commercial rate for restaurants.
Well, I'm sure we can work something out, Callie May.
In that case, here's a list of the things I'll need.
If the price is right when you deliver, well, then you've got a regular customer.
Nice meeting you all.
Miss Elizabeth, you sure are a pretty young lady.
Thank you.
Who is that female? That was the one, the only, the original, Callie May Jessup.
Boy, the old days around Walton's Mountain, she was really something! As a matter of fact, she used to go around with your daddy.
Really? I thought Daddy and Mama were always childhood sweethearts.
Well, they were, but when your mom's folks objected to the marriage, well then, John Well, he really went wild! Mr.
Godsey, we would rather not hear the sordid details of John's youth! - Well, I would.
- So would I.
Well, shall we complete our transaction? I think we can break through this wall to expand the dining room.
No, that's a weight-bearing wall.
It's best to go out that way, Callie May.
- I want this one, Johnny! - It doesn't make any sense, Callie May.
It's a weight-bearing wall, I'm telling you.
You're gonna have to put a beam across the top to hold it up and it's gonna cost you a lot more money.
So what? It's my money! Still stubborn as ever, aren't you? You're the stubborn one.
As I recall, you were the one always starting the fights.
But it was fun making up, wasn't it? As I recall, you ran off in quite a hurry, didn't you? When you started going with Olivia again, you got so dull I couldn't stand looking at you.
I tried to tell you about Liv, you wouldn't see me.
Oh, please! I got over you a long time ago, John Walton.
The Dew Drop was a good buy, and I wanted to come home.
Even if I do have to look at your miserable mountain.
There's nothing wrong with our mountain! "Our mountain.
" Listen to the big shot.
I suppose you charge people to look at it.
Let's just get back to business, all right? Yes, let's do.
My time is valuable.
I'll start delivering the lumber tomorrow.
Well, see that you put it on the side of the building, because I don't want you to junk-up the front.
You just get your own plans, I'll take care of the lumber.
And don't try to dump any third-grade wood on me either! Just don't stand in the way when I start unloading that lumber, Callie May.
Nice doing business with you! You're as kind and understanding as ever! You always did have lousy aim! Well, that's good to hear, Liv.
No, there's not much new around here.
Ben and Cindy and Jim-Bob are over at Godsey Hall.
The girls are going over there now.
All right, honey.
I love you, too.
That was your mama.
She didn't wanna run up a phone bill.
She's doing fine.
That's good.
Bye, Daddy.
Bye, honey.
- Better go.
- Bye-bye.
You sure you don't mind watching John Curtis? Why should I? I've got plenty to do here.
We'll be home early, in case you want to go out.
Where would I wanna go? See you later.
And then, Jim-Bob, twist it first before you tack it up.
He knows that, Cindy.
- Like that? - Yeah.
This is the darnedest-looking night club I've ever seen.
Oh, really? How many night clubs have you been to? Enough.
Even the Dew Drop doesn't look like this.
I wonder how much that Callie Jordan is going to change it.
What's she like, Elizabeth? She seemed nice.
Real pretty.
Ike said she and Daddy used to go together.
That was a long time ago.
Cindy, what did you think of her? She's been around.
That's what I was afraid of.
How come? Well, Daddy didn't mention her to Mama on the phone tonight.
And I know she knew her.
It's been a long time since Daddy's been out in the world, you might say.
He's been awful lonely lately.
He might get that old feeling.
What do you know about that old feeling? It's in the song, isn't it? Well, Daddy's not that old, and he is still handsome.
Actually, he's at a very dangerous age.
You know, it wouldn't hurt to keep an eye on your father while your mother's gone.
Now, wait a minute! Daddy can take good care of himself.
I mean, he is a grandfather, you know.
Remind him of that, too, Ben, but don't count on it having very much meaning.
Not with a woman like Callie Jordan around.
Oh, come on.
Let's go get the refreshments.
Cindy's mama and papa split up when she was 13.
Her mother died a couple years later.
Better go give her a hand.
Why don't you finish hanging this stuff up? Oh, thanks, Ben.
Hi, Grandpa, I've got a customer for you.
Wholesale or retail? Mr.
Willard's a big operator, so it's wholesale.
What can we do for you, big time operator? Well, he's got some building projects going and needs some materials.
Building blocks, Grandpa, lots of them.
What's this Grandpa business? I don't mind when John Curtis can say it.
But I don't think anyone else has the right to.
Well, you are one, you know? Hey, Grandpa, when are we going to start this special order of his? You hear that, John Curtis? Can you say it, "Grandpa"? Come on.
" - Grandpa.
Come on.
Take the tree out of your mouth.
That's all right, I'll fill your order anyways.
As soon as I get back from the Dew Drop Inn.
- Want me to go with you? - No, I can handle this.
You get to work on the Willard order.
And sand that wood down real good.
I don't want my grandson getting any splinters in his fingers.
- Bye-bye, Grandpa.
- Take it easy, Grandpa.
Trouble is he doesn't look like a grandpa.
Doesn't think like one either.
Hi, Johnny.
Callie May.
You know, no ones called me Johnny for a long time.
Not too many people put May behind Callie, either.
Do you mind? No, as a matter of fact, I like it.
Most people have been calling me grandpa lately.
Anybody who calls you grandpa needs an eye examination.
Well There's your lumber.
As soon as you get your plans, we can get to work.
Oh, Ike called.
He heard I was looking for lighting fixtures and he has some on sale.
Be careful of those.
Last time I saw Ike's lighting fixtures, they looked like they'd been floor samples for Thomas Edison.
I ought to at least take a look at them.
You want to come? I'll meet you there.
Want to race? Twenty-five years ago, I would have said yes.
Twenty-five years ago, it would've been your idea.
I don't know, Johnny, you're losing your bite.
Callie May, aren't you ever going to grow up? You mean grow old, don't you? I mean, be a lady! Ha! You wouldn't know one if you saw one! Okay, you've got yourself a race! Oh, no, no, no! That's not fair! - Where you been? - You cheated! You cheated! Callie May, you forgot your way around these old roads.
You took a new road! I won, and I want to know what the prize is.
Same as it always was.
Oh, Callie May, now, I just better settle for a soda.
Well, I've been hearing about your plans, and I got to thinking, well, maybe you needed some lighting fixtures.
And if you did, I've got a really great buy for you.
Here, I got this out of the storeroom.
It's very different.
I've got a dozen of these, and I don't know why they haven't sold.
I was really looking for something a little more modern.
I'm sorry, Ike.
Well, you know, I'm just trying to help out an old classmate.
Sure is great having Callie around.
It kind of brings you back, doesn't it? - It sure does.
- I seem to recall we spent a great deal of time playing hooky.
Yes, we did that.
Hooky? I don't remember playing hooky.
Weren't you with me and Johnny when we went down to the old swimming hole? It got hot early that spring, remember, Johnny? Yes, I remember.
What spring was that? As a matter of fact, it got so hot that we took off at noon and ran down there and just jumped right in.
Oh, did that water feel good! And then Johnny Johnny got on that big tire swing out over the water, just like Tarzan.
Got to be going along now, Ike.
The only thing is he didn't have himself a loin cloth! I wasn't there, Corabeth.
I swear it! It's nice seeing pictures of your mama all over the house, but I'm not sure we need one in the bathroom.
Pretty lady, your mama.
- What's for supper? - Chicken pot pie.
Great! My favorite! Just the way Mama makes it.
Supper's not quite ready yet, so if you want to, you have time to read your paper first.
Mama always seemed to manage to time it out that way.
You sure you don't mind staying with John Curtis tonight? Nope.
I'm supposed to be the chaperone at the opening of the Night Club Canteen.
What I worry about is who's going to chaperone the chaperone? Nobody, I hope.
Well, what do you think? This is one of the dresses that Mama used to wear.
You all keep this up, I'm gonna get the car and go see your mama in Alberene.
Why don't you? Grandpa is baby-sitting tonight.
I don't have to go to the canteen.
No, you go ahead.
Listen here, you know, it's really not necessary for you all to remind me how much I miss your mama.
Is this all because of Callie? We don't want you to get involved with that woman.
I don't intend to, honey.
She's a friend.
I have a right to choose my own friends, don't I? I always gave you that right.
Why don't you let me worry about it? Sorry.
I'm not just talking to you, Elizabeth.
Supper's almost ready.
Why don't we dish it up? Are you sure you put those posters up all over? I took a whole stack over to Camp Rockfish.
When did you do that? I told you I was doing publicity.
I put a couple at Ike's store.
Then a few at the Baldwin's antique shop.
There's a lot of Gls that go around there, Elizabeth.
Well, don't give up.
It looks real colorful.
Hey, come in.
Have you got any beer in here? Well, no, but we've got soft drinks and sugar cookies.
Are you one of the cookies, sugar? Yes, she is.
And I'm her husband.
Thanks just the same.
I'll head for the Dew Drop.
Ben, I'm the hostess.
I have to be nice.
But not too nice.
- Hello.
- It's Callie.
How are you, Johnny? Fine.
What's going on? The draftsman brought by the remodeling plans, can you come over? Sorry, Callie May, I'm here alone with John Curtis.
Okay, I'll bring them over.
We don't seem to be overwhelmed with lonely soldiers, do we? I could be having a better time at the ice cream parlor.
It's really a challenge being a chaperone to my brother and his wife and my younger brother and sister.
Something does seem to be amiss.
- Hi there! - Cindy.
Welcome to the Night Club Canteen.
Would you like some refreshments or maybe to dance? Uh, no, thank you.
Um What I would like are some books.
You see, we don't have a post library yet.
My dear young man, come with me and I will open the door to the world of literature for you.
That's really great.
You know, I was studying Restoration theater when I got drafted.
Oh, Beaumont and Fletcher, here we come! Well, I think I'm going to go relieve Daddy.
This place doesn't need a chaperone, it needs an undertaker.
Stay and have some cookies.
No, but bring some home for Daddy.
They're Mama's special recipe.
Of course! Isn't everything we've cooked lately? - Good night.
- Good night.
- Hi.
- Callie May.
Here they are.
Finally! I can't believe he finally brought them over.
You look at them and explain.
I can't figure them out at all.
I sure will.
I've been thinking about our race.
It was really fun, wasn't it? It sure was, as long as I won.
I'm giving the Godseys a hard time.
Poor Ike.
You did lay it on a little thick, Callie May.
So, this is where Mr.
John Walton has spent the last 25 years of wedded bliss.
Let's take a look at these plans.
I used to imagine what it would've been like living here with you.
Six children, is it? Seven.
I didn't quite picture it that way.
Things not busy over at the Dew Drop Inn? Not too.
" Olivia painted that.
She started painting again a few years ago.
Not much that lady can't do, is there? Johnny, Olivia's not gone.
She's here.
I know.
Now, this is the part I can't understand.
Mary Ellen.
Callie, I want you to meet my oldest daughter, Mary Ellen.
Hello, Mary Ellen.
Just going over some plans here.
Callie's going to remodel the Dew Drop Inn.
I see.
How're things at the canteen? Terrible, everybody went to the Dew Drop.
I'd better get back.
Nice meeting you, Mary Ellen.
Well, I'll look at the blueprints and we'll talk about them.
- Okay.
- Good night.
- Good night.
- Good night.
How'd you like Callie? She's seems nice.
How do you like her? Just an old friend.
Little crazy in the head sometimes.
Daddy, I remember when Curt went to Camp Lee and I kept running into David Spencer at the hospital.
I know what it's like to be lonely.
And to keep finding yourself running into someone who used to be close.
Old feelings aren't always buried as deep as we think they are.
Mary Ellen, it's nothing like that.
Callie and me are old friends, that's all.
Good night, Daddy.
We still have to figure out what to do with the light fixtures here, here and here.
What do you think I ought to do? I have to get down to Richmond on Saturday.
I know a place that has some good buys.
I can get a catalog and some prices.
I'm not busy on Saturday.
I'll go with you.
Callie, I think there's something we ought to talk about.
- Hi.
- Hi.
I've got a composition to work on.
I wondered if I could borrow the piano.
The one at home needs tuning real bad.
Sure, I'd love to hear it, Jason.
So, all of our business is settled, then? I guess so.
I'm sure we'll find the right fixtures on Saturday.
Got to get back to work.
- Bye.
- Bye-bye, Daddy.
I really should be over at Godsey Hall helping them close up the canteen.
This piece is due tomorrow.
Did they give up? Well, it wasn't worth it.
Nobody came.
That's a shame.
We need a place around here for the soldiers when they're off duty.
And take business away from the Dew Drop? Well, no, we can't have that, can we? Well, go on and play, I haven't got all day.
Hello, Elizabeth.
Jason told me your canteen folded.
I'm sorry.
I guess we just couldn't compete with the Dew Drop Inn.
I've been in this business a long time, Elizabeth.
It's pretty hard to beat the competition with the same kind of place, unless you can do it better.
Your liquid refreshments were a little stronger than ours.
That's what people expect in a night club.
But we thought the Gls would go for a place like this.
I see a lot of young soldiers at the Dew Drop.
Most of them are away from home for the first time in their lives.
But that's why we thought they'd come here for some fun.
I think what a lot of soldiers are looking for is a home away from home.
That's for sure.
A place where they could relax, write letters, read books or magazines.
You know, that's not such a bad idea.
We can get a Ping-Pong table and set it up.
Maybe even ask Ike if we can use his pool table for free.
But how can we do that when we don't have any money? It won't be easy to get donations, especially after we goofed once.
You need a backer.
Something they call a public-minded citizen who wants to create good will in the community.
We ran out of all of those when we tried to get the night club started.
You haven't asked me.
- Well, hello, John.
- Good morning, John.
Good morning, Corabeth, Ike.
Ike, I need some wood screws, some nuts and bolts.
It's all right there.
I'll be back later to pick it up.
- I'll have them ready.
- Oh, John! Could I speak to you for a moment, please? Why, sure, Corabeth.
I know how lonely you must be with Olivia gone, so I have selected two of my favorite books for you to read.
The Constant Heart and Faithful to the End.
Thank you, Corabeth.
I appreciate the thoughtfulness.
Well, perhaps when you are through, we can discuss their moral implications.
I can hardly wait.
Well, now I must go water the philodendron.
Oh, John, can I have a word with you? - You know, at our time of life - Uh-huh.
and it is a very dangerous age - Uh-huh.
we gotta be very careful so that we don't get off the straight and narrow, you know? Lke Now listen, Ike, you can trust me.
Are you slipping around? Who, me? No, not me.
Glad to hear it, Ike.
Hey! You want some nice, fresh home-made cookies? Want some cookies, fellows? Oh! How about some cookies? Full of lots of energy.
I thought you always went to the Dew Drop.
I did, but Callie's telling everyone they ought to come over here for some real down-home entertainment.
She was right! Want some cookies? How'd you hear about our canteen, Sergeant? Callie over at the Dew Drop.
Your move.
- Elizabeth, cookies? - No, thank you.
One for the winner.
- Hey, want a cookie? Corabeth's.
- Thank you.
I would never have thought it possible for this place to be so crowded.
Neither would I.
Had it to myself the first time I came by.
Who's next? - I am.
What are we playing for? Make it easy on yourself.
Cindy! Oh, Ben, every soldier I've talked to said Callie Jordan sent him! You just watch your step, okay? Gosh, you're really good! Hi, fellows.
- Ike, you wanted to see me? - Yes, Callie, I did.
- You got a minute? - Sure, come on in.
Oh, I'd rather talk to you out here.
I want to talk to you about John, and Jason's in there.
Anything you have to say to me, you can say at the bar.
Come on.
Corabeth's waiting.
Was this your idea, Ike? Well, it's both of ours, but it's mostly mine.
I really do want to talk to you about John, as an old friend.
His or mine? Well, both of yours.
If you're worried about John Walton going astray, forget it.
He's settled in like a bear in winter.
Well, I just remembered the way the two of you used to be, you know, you You really had something powerful between the two of you.
I got over him a long time ago.
Besides, all we ever do is fight.
That's what I'm afraid of.
That's all you used to do.
Except, the two of you, you loved it! Now, listen, Ike, you're sticking your nose into something that's none of your business.
I came here to settle down.
I like the Dew Drop and the area is growing.
I've had enough of marriage and trying to get along with men and that includes John Walton! Callie, there is just one thing more.
Those marriages of yours, why didn't they last? Because both of my husbands were idiots, Ike! Maybe it's because they didn't measure up to the man you really wanted.
John Walton.
Good night, Ike.
Good night, Callie.
Callie May? Over here.
You ready? Callie May, you ready? I'm not going.
How come? Oh, I had big plans for this trip, but now I just can't do it.
What in the world are you talking about? You've gotten so all-fired pure and clean, you'd probably have a heart attack if I told you.
Get out of here, Johnny.
You're trespassing.
Callie May, will you make sense? When I came back here, I really didn't think you'd mean anything to me.
I was determined you wouldn't.
But it started all over.
And I began dreaming again.
This could've been a real nice trip to Richmond.
For both of us.
But after getting to know your kids and seeing where you live and what a nice guy you turned out to be, I don't know, I just I can't do it.
Go on, get out of here.
Goodbye, Johnny.
You know, we might have had a good life together, but we went down different roads.
Sooner or later, we would have killed each other anyway.
We did have something good going.
And I've been thinking about that some lately.
You know, I never did have much trouble being faithful to Liv, but that doesn't mean much until you come up against temptation.
Callie May, Liv means everything to me.
That's just the way it is.
But on the other hand, you know, we are good friends.
And we are going to be doing business together.
And nobody's going to tell me who I can see and who I can't see.
As a matter of fact, I called Liv the other night after you left the house.
I told her you were back in town.
All she said was, "How's she doing her hair now?" I told her, "I didn't remember.
" She said, "Next time you see her, take notice!" Come on, Callie May, let's go to Richmond.
Get your hands off me, you big ape! I'll show you how nice and innocent the whole thing can be.
You know, you're still just a dumb old country boy! I can handle you anytime, Miss Callie May! - That's what you think, Johnny Walton! - Come on, let's go! - What are you doing? - Callie, it's all going to be fine.
Just to be sure I brought a few of the Waltons along.
They want to get to know you.
They wanted to come.
Come on, Callie May.
It'll be nice for me, too, to get to know you as a friend.
Well, you better start remembering how I fix my hair so you can tell Olivia all about it.
We're off to Richmond! Say hello, everybody.
Hey, John Curtis, how you doing, baby-baby? Here we go! Everybody in.
Let's go to the big city! Callie May Jordan became a respected member of the community and a good friend to all our family, young and old.
You still awake, Daddy? I'm hitting the old pillow pretty quick, honey.
Everybody's back from the canteen, and Jason got home half an hour ago.
I know.
I've been reading Corabeth's book tonight, Faithful to the End.
The other one is better.
The Constant Heart? I just finished it.
It's worse.
- Good night, Mary Ellen.
- Good night, Daddy.
