Keep the Faith!

Screen capture from "The Ninety-Second War" (part 1, Season 4), Hawaii Five-0, Leonard Freeman Productions / CBS Television, 1968-1980.

In this screen capture, Danno has asked Doc Bergman whether Steve will recover from the car crash he suffered in Benny Jalor's car. It is too early to predict the outcome, and Doc tells Danno to keep the faith.

In this vein, Honu sent the following comments to me this morning:

Last week, I attended the funeral of a dear lady in our community. It's hard to believe that she is gone, but she certainly lived her life to the fullest, was a force of nature and a joy to her family and friends.

In each funeral program, there was a lovely bookmark, symbolic of Margaret's great love of reading and the written word. On the bookmark was a portrait of Margaret and in her own hand writing, her favorite expression: "Keep the Faith, Babes!" It brought a smile to my face . . .

It brings a smile to my face, too, Honu. Thank you for sharing this.

You know, H5O, I can picture quite easily Al Eben reading aloud to children and putting a lot of personality into what he read. Wish I could have been a fly on the wall.

Thank you for posting this screen cap, H50, the scene is one of my favorite "Doc-Scenes".
And thank you, Honu, for sharing your experience at the funeral. What a lovely way of that old lady to try to bring some consolation to those who mourn her.

Yes. I agree. On (too rare) occasion, Doc could be most likeable. I think that was Al Eben's true nature. In his retirement years, he read books to school children. I'll bet he really brought them to life, too!

And thank you for posting the screen cap from "The Ninety Second War." I loved that scene between Dan and Doc. Both must have been frantic with worry, yet Doc takes that short moment to give Dan a comforting word, reminding him that there was indeed hope. We don't see a whole lot of Doc in the show and usually he's being his gruff self, but here we see his caring and compassionate side. Love it!
