Pass It On®
Sometimes the last thing you want to do for somebody ought to be the first. In "Neighbors," the creators wanted to portray a person who, in many ways, wasn't "deserving" of help. The character of Edna is a grouchy person. Yet the mother has taught her daughter the important lesson that their job as neighbors is to help out, without an expectation that their good gesture would be equally reciprocated.
DAUGHTER: Seventh grade. What was this jumper made of?
DAUGHTER: You let me go to school dressed like a seat cover?
MOTHER: You convinced me that it was good for you.
DAUGHTER: Uh-oh. Edna.
EDNA: You know Im having this wedding here tomorrow, and your weeds are growing through the fence! Do you care?
MUSIC: Think of your fellow man, lend him a helping hand. Put a little love in your heart..
DAUGHTER: I see some things havent changed.
MUSIC: You see its getting late, Oh, please dont hesitate, put a little love in your heart.
MOTHER: Take this to Edna while I change into my garden clothes.
DAUGHTER: Why me?
MUSIC: And the world will be a better place, put a little love in your heart.
EDNA: Youre planting them too close together.
MOTHER: Edna, its going to be a beautiful wedding.
EDNA: Yea, maybe.
ANNCR/SUPER: Patience. Pass it on. A message from The Foundation for a Better Life.
Patience. Pass It On!
We need and extra amount of love going on now in this hateful political era. If it seems that some people don’t get do it anyway. Be kind anyway!
Love this site! We need to love each other and stop all the hate. We need to remember, "Do unto others as we would have them do unto us ...". God bless all.
I like it, thank you for reminding me to have patience
Ah yes. I love this.. It was so often this way back in Brokklyn in the 50 s.. Those days of corny simple and silly things.. I think we have become to arrogant..and foolish. It will probably take America another 200 yrs before it stops acting like a know it all teenager
