TS - Plans for the Future by Gav-Imp TS - Plans for the Future by Gav-Imp
At the early 1870. Before Clifford Burns was expelled by Coronel Burns, he and his future servant John Smithers shared a time together under the stars.

Clifford: What a beautiful night, you know? After a harsh day like this one, I like to see the stars and calm myself.
John: Just hope your father calm down after that.
Clifford: I think that I must get used to that. After all, I'm his heir. I'm going to inherit the plantation, the fortune and even the workers (even if my father call them slaves, I don't think the same thing as well).
John: I see you like to think about the future. You know what I'm thinking? The name that I'll give to my future son.
Clifford: Son? John, you're not married yet and you're thinking about that?
John: What's wrong? I'm sure that you're planning the same.
Clifford: Well... (smile) I think so.
John: If you'll have a son, how you call him?
Clifford: Eh... I think I have one perfect name. I've read my favorite book last night and I really like his name, Charles.
John: Charles?
Clifford: Yes, the name of the protagonist as well.
John: Charles Burns, eh? It fits very well, I like it.
Clifford: What about you?
John: You see, I wanted to call him with a name similar to Wayland, the name that my mother wanted to put me at first. But I wanted to make it very special... so, the name I got is Waylon. I want to call my son, Waylon.
Clifford: Waylon, eh? Somehow, that name is very special and deep... Waylon Smithers. I love that.
John: Imagine it, young master. Charles and Waylon. The next generation of master and servant. The thing that I wish is that this relationship will be just like ours.
Clifford: I wish the same thing. And even more.
John: So, you like to pray to the stars for make that wish true?
Clifford (smiling): Sure!

And both prayed for a wish that it will be true in the future... a relationship that goes far than a simply brotherhood.

I love the picture and the dialogue. It's cool to see how you're making everything in the past come together to make the present that we know and love from The Simpsons. =D
