In 1984, Josh Lewis was feeling disheartened by the arduous physical therapy he needed to undergo after a car accident (triggered by learning that Reva, the love of his life, had married his... dad?) left him paralyzed from the waist down.

At the same time, beloved Springfield matriarch Bert was dealing with her own recovery after having her leg amputated.

Seeing the young man's despair, Bert offered Josh one of her trademark pep talks.

Was Bert's encouragement GL's Great Moment ever? Watch it on and vote!

In real life, actress Charita Bauer had undergone the same amputation and also faced the crises with an indomitable spirit.

"I have nothing to be bitter about," she proclaimed. "My foot's gone. But I'm still here."
