Growing up happens in a heartbeat.
One day you're in diapers; the next day you're gone.
But the memories of childhood stay with you for the long haul.
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 still look back... with wonder.
(Kevin's voiceover from the final scene in the final episode of The Wonder Years.)
Mom... The smartest
person I've ever known
