[at Donald's school]

Donald Martin:
[to Joe]
Tell us how you got your medal.
Joseph Brady:
Alright, I'll tell you how I got my medal. Now close your eyes... and try to think of the most beautiful place you've ever with greenest grass and the singingest birds and the shiningest sun.
[Cut to Donald's thoughts]

Joseph Brady:
Can you see it?
Kids:
Yeah!
Joseph Brady:
Good! Now imagine me walking along, happy as a lark. Can you see me?
Kids:
Yeah!
Joseph Brady:
Good! Of course, back then in the navy we wore white suits with blue stripes and little white hat with a little red ball on top. Oh, I was so happy I ran and leaped and played, just for the fun of it! My, it felt good! Oh, it was such a wonderful, wonderful day! When all of a sudden I stepped into a big hole and fell, right to the bottom of it! I seemed to be in a long tunnel. 'Way ahead I could see light, so I started towards. At the end I found myself in a strange land! It looked... well, it looked just like page out of story books. And everything was hushed and still, like your room at night after you've gone to sleep.

Tell us how you got your medal.
Alright, I'll tell you how I got my medal.
Now, close your eyes.
Try to imagine the most beautiful day
you've ever seen!
With green grass, singing birds
and a shining sun.
- Can you see it?
- Yeah!
Now imagine me walking along
playing a tin whistle, as happy as can be.
- Do you see me?
- Yeah!
In those days we wore white suits...
...with blue stripes...
...and a white hat
with a little red ball on top.
I was so happy that I ran andjumped
and leaped and played.
Just for the fun of it.
I felt good!
Oh, it was such a wonderful,
wonderful day.
Suddenly, I slipped into a big hole...
...and fell right to the bottom of it.
I seemed to be in a long tunnel.
Way ahead I could see light,
so I started towards it.
Finally, I reached the end and found myself
in a strange land.
It looked, well, it lookedjust
like a page out of a story book.
And everything was hushed and still.
Like your room at night,
after you've gone to sleep.
Hello?
Is anybody here?
No music?
I can't sing if I want to?
Can I dance?
