- Joe's first visit at the Radio City Music Hall is so beautifully simple.
Narrator: My most vivid memory connected with an old radio song I associate with the time that Aunt Bea and her then-boyfriend Chester took me into New York to the movies. It was the first time I'd ever seen the Radio City Music Hall and it was like entering heaven. I just never saw anything so beautiful in my life.
- When the entire country stops for a moment to listen the attempt to rescue a little girl who fell down a well. Then when everyone stops to mourn her death. Particularly, Joe's father tearing up as he hugs Joe close to him.
- Joe, while lugging home a radio, discovers that his father is a a cab driver. He gives him the "biggest tip of his life."
- One of Joe's favorite moments was his parent's anniversary, the only time they would kiss in front of him.
