“All our young lives we search for someone to love. Someone who makes us complete. We choose partners and change partners. We dance to a song of heartbreak and hope... all the while wondering if somewhere, somehow, there's someone perfect... who might be searching for us.”

“Growing up is never easy. You hold on to things that were. You wonder what's to come. But that night, I think we knew it was time to let go of what had been, and look ahead to what would be. Other days. New days. Days to come. The thing is, we didn't have to hate each other for getting older. We just had to forgive ourselves... for growing up.”

“I guess sometimes the ground can shift between your feet. Sometimes your footing slips. You stumble. And sometimes you grab what's close to you and hold on as tight as you can.”

“Over the course of the average lifetime
you meet a lot of people. Some of them
stick with you through thick and thin.
Some weave their way through your life
and disappear forever. But once in a
while someone comes along who earns a
permanent place in your heart”


“Once upon a time there was a girl I knew, who lived across the street. Brown hair, brown eyes. When she smiled, I smiled. When she cried, I cried. Every single thing that ever happened to me that mattered, in some way had to do with her. That day Winnie and I promised each other that no matter what, that we'd always be together. It was a promise full of passion and truth and wisdom. It was the kind of promise that can only come from the hearts of the very young.”

“I remember a place... a town... a house like a lot of houses... a yard like a lot of other yards... on a street like a lot of other streets. And the thing is, after all these years, I sill look back... with wonder.”

“Change is never easy. You fight to hold on. You fight to let go.”

"After all, if growing up is war, then the friends who grew up with you deserve a special respect. The ones who stuck by you shoulder to shoulder, in a time when nothing was certain, all life lay ahead, and every road led home."

"Love is unpredictable, you have to go with your heart and hope for the best."
"I'm young. I live in a house my father owns, in a bed my father bought..Nothing is mine..except my heart and my fears and my growing knowlege that not every road is gonna lead home anymore."


"And so we finally got our new car. It wasn't red, it wasn't a convertible, heck, it wasn't even a Mustang. But it was brand new. And it was pretty cool. 'Course, Dad got his shot at king-for-a-day... and we were happy for him. But that afternoon, I began to understand what Dad had been going through. There was more to that old car than fuel pumps and crankshafts. There was a part of all of us in that car. The places we'd gone, the things we'd done... the family we had been. The family that was moving on. And for the first time, I understood the value of what my Dad had put into it. And why it was so hard to let it go."

"In 7th grade, you are what other people say you are. And when it comes down to it, you don't remember the people you tried to impress."

"Sometimes to keep growing together, you have to grow apart. If you're lucky you can get a second chance with the one you love. Sometimes luck isn't enough. Love can kill you..It can tear you apart. But it can bring you back together. "

"And so Winnie and I had our one slow dance after all. But things wouldn’t be the same between us. We were getting older. All we could do was close our eyes and wish that the slow song would never end."

Oh, I really love that title. I can start many personal stories of my own with that line.

Wow, I had no idea that song existed. Thank you for bringing it to our attention! For me, however, there is no need to think about it. Winnie Cooper all the way!
It gets better. Now, for an actual good song, "Kevin Got Nothin'", sung from the POV of a love-lorn Paul for Ms. Winnie Cooper.

"No. None," he said plainly when asked if there could be a Wonder Years reboot in the future.
I understand, and kind of glad. Any reboot would surely ruin it.
Quote:
McKellar's then 4-year-old son, Draco, and Sveslosky's then 10-year-old son, Hunter (both from previous marriages) were also in attendance. After the couple exchanged vows with each other, they also exchanged family vows with their children, which they all wrote themselves.
Family vows with the children? Aw, that's how to do it.

And who hasn't been there or felt that? True words. Poor Kevin.

The Wonder years is a show where we did that a lot.
