Audience Reviews for Now and Then
- Crazy Pete: I don't want to see a lot of people, I don't think they want to see a lot of me.
- Vietnam Veteran: Your parents aren't always right.
- Samantha Albertson: [narrating] You can run from the disappointments you're trying to forget. But its only when you embrace your past that you truly move forward. Maybe Thomas Wolfe never got to go home again, but I found my way there. And I'm glad I did.
- Samantha Albertson: [narrating] We all used to try so hard to fit in. We wanted to look exactly alike, do all the same things, practically be the same person, but when we weren't looking that all changed. The tree house was supposed to bring us more independence, but what the summer actually brought was independence from each other.
- Samantha Albertson: [narrating] I decided not to tell the others about my father, call me a fool but I actually thought he'd be back, a wishful notion I held onto for years. At the time no one in The Gaslight Edition had gotten a divorce and the last thing I wanted was to be different from my friends.
- Samantha Albertson: [narrating talking about Crazy Pete] He gave me the only gift he could... The lesson that had taken him a lifetime to learn... And although I understood the importance of his words... It's only now looking back that I understand their meaning.
