Welcome back
Your dreams were your ticket out

To that same old place that you laughed about …

Vinnie Barbarino
I got my own idea of what God is like: I know he’s a sharp dresser, and he’s good-looking. And of course, he’s Italian.

Your Dreams Were Your Ticket Out

Who’d have thought they’d lead ya – Back here where we need ya

When composer John Sebastian had problems rhyming lyrics for a show called Kotter, he decided to tell a story instead. Since the teacher, played by Gabe Kaplan, was returning to his alma mater, the lyrics set the tone for the show, welcoming Mr. Kotter back to James Buchanan High School.

The producers liked the song so much that they decided to change the title of the show to Welcome Back, Kotter. The song subsequently hit number one on the charts.

John Travolta
Acting is a mix of luck and choice. I got lucky.

Welcome Back, Kotter

The show was a big hit, at least for the first three seasons. By the fourth year, Gabe Kaplan had left over creative differences with the producers. John Travolta, the show’s breakout star, had soared to new heights with Saturday Night Fever, and appeared only occasionally as a special guest star.

John Travolta
I wouldn’t trade my career with anybody’s. I’d trade a few movies with Tom Hanks – ‘Apollo 13’ and ‘Forrest Gump’ – but other than that, I love my career.

Gabe Kaplan
I mean, I would have loved to have kept on being a big television star. If that’s the way things would have broke, I would have loved to have done that. I just didn’t really want to continue and be someone who took whatever was offered.
