The voice of Josh (played by John Beebee’s son, Christopher) was recorded more than a month after the rest of the show.
"Best Laid Plans" began a recording session that ended with “Worst Day Ever”. That’s not to say we started with the best and ended with the worst!
This episode was written two years before it was recorded. It was originally intended to be the introduction to the Timothy Center and featured Whit in the part that Jason now holds. Some of the parts in the original version of the show, including the “fake testimonies” were featured in “You Win Some, You Lose Some”.
Theme: God's plans sometime differ from ours.
: I was trapped by the invisible walls of my fate. Fooled into thinking that I could not escape. Chained up in a ghetto where my father died. Tricked into thinking I could never go outside. Surrounded by my friends who knew nothing but war. Shackled to everything that had gone on before. I would forever be stuck in this dead-end life of mine, my heart turned back by a city limit sign.
And yet . . .
And yet I now see a way out of my concrete jail. A way to soften a heart that's grown stale. I understand now what it takes to get real. If you want to stand up you have to learn how to kneel.
I surrender. My weapons are down at my feet. 'Cause we'll never have freedom with blood on the streets.
