Young at Heart

Synopsis: When Alex enters the lives of the musical Tuttle family, each of the three daughters falls for him. He is charming, good looking and personable. Laurie and Alex seem made for each other and become engaged. When Barney comes into the picture to help Alex with some musical arrangements matters become complicated. He is seen as a challenge by Laurie, who can't believe anyone could be as cynical, and she is more than a match for his gloomy outlook on life.

- [ Drum s ]

- "Schizophrenia."


[ Guitar, Drums ]

[ Stephen ] What kind of reaction do you

think you're gonna get to "Schizophrenia "?

I think that the words

will be tricky at first.

And these guys really are

in tune with the words.

What's great about this group is that

you really hear the words when they sing it.

- Do you think they're gonna like it?

- No.

I went away

To see an old friend of mine

His sister came over

She was out of her mind

- [ Stephen ] So, what kind of music do you like?

- Classical.

With opera at the top.

- [ Continues ]

- Her light eyes were dancing

She is insane

My music?

Uh, classical music.

And if you look at

the top of my TV set...

you'll see a schedule of the

Metropolitan Opera broadcasts.

[ Continues ]

Of course, I like My Fair Lady

and The King And I...

and, um-

What's the very popular one

with Julie Andrews?

"Climb Every Mountain."

What was that one?

- Sound Of Music.

- Yes.

[ Continues, Loud]

- [ Ends ]

- [ Bob ] We're gonna-

We're gonna feature Billy on this.

What do you think?

- [ Men, Women Exclaiming ]

- [ Bob ] You cant hear what?

The words. Because of the music.

The music was too loud.

Im always excited

to start new work.

Its one of my favorite

parts of the process.

I think it's that moment

where they don't trust you at all.

They think that

this is a crazy idea...

and it's gonna backfire completely.

And then they start

to warm up to it.

There is something wonderful

about that whole process.

- Wow! I feel good

- [All Laughing]

I knew that I would now

[ Stephen Narrating ] Next on Bob's list

of new songs is James Brown...

and it's a whole different story.

So good, so good

I got you

[ Screams ]

- [ Continues ]

- Whoo!

- [ Bob ] Come on! That's your part!
