This young man really reminds me of Joseph Gordon-Levitt !

Trust Me

Fifty years ago I was just about his age. I was that skinny and had that much hair. Today I haven't changed a bit.

You'll just have to take my word for it.

It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown!

Linus: "Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He's gotta pick this one. He's got to. I don't see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there's not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see."

It's the Great Pumpkin!

"This is the time of the year to write to the Great Pumpkin. On Halloween night, the Great Pumpkin rises out of his pumpkin patch and flies through the air with his bag of toys for all the children"

Flash forward

Something about the bare chest and the foliage makes me imagine Dale, a few years later, in the jungles of Vietnam.
