I love spotting familiar performers in unexpected roles. The 1981 episode had a brief appearance by Dana Delaney and the "Lucy" character with John is none other than Linda Cook who'd previously played Laurie Ann Karr on "Edge of Night" and would later play Egypt Masters on "Loving". And I freaking LOVED Tom & Margo's "Come as you are" wedding. I'd always heard about it (it's pretty legendary), and it didn't disappoint. I also loved seeing Kim Johnston Ulrich (Diana; ex-Ivy, PSNS) bail Christian LeBlanc (Kirk; Michael, Y&R) out of jail. lol Also, I never realized exactly how much Betsy Von Furstenburg really favored Eileen Fulton from certain angles and it's easy to see why she was cast in the role when Eileen left. What a lot of people might not know about BVF is that she's actually a (I believe German) baroness by birth.
I spoke with Linda last week and told her she was on the set. Her first question was which character she was playing (she appeared on ATWT again in the early 90s around the time she was going through her first cancer treatments).

Betsy subbed for Eileen when she was ill previously so when Eileen left I guess it seemed like the easiest thing, plus the resemblance. I didn't remember at all that Betsy was in two of those great weddings until I re-watched again this summer.

I tried to get as many different faces as possible in the episodes. If I had another week would have been able to do more.
