I snickered when Susan was referred to as John, Jr.'s baby nurse.

Can I just say how gorgeous Kristian Alfonso looks in this episode? Not that she doesn't look good now but she was absolutely stunning in the 90's. Of course, they also had a decent hair and makeup team back then, so...

Yeah, you can really tell the difference now.

My mom is totally offline and when she saw Franco her reaction was "What da hell?!". She is in heaven and giggling like a school girl during this episode. A nice, albeit confusing, surprise for "offline" viewers.

And can I just point out how great the background music is? It's so understated, appropriate, and subdued when needed and isn't turned up to level 10, drowning out the dialog. Whoever is in charge of sound mixing on this show now needs to be punched in the mouth.

I also loved the camerawork in this episode. I like how the cameras used to move with the actors -- it gave the show a nice fluidity. The show seemed like a real production back then. Now everything is so stagnant, with the actors and the cameras all planted in one place.

It's worth seeing this episode for the sight of porn-stache Bo in just a towel alone.

Bo looks like such a creep in this episode. Peter Reckell really improved over time! Like a fine wine.

And dammit I'd forgotten how pretty Drake Hogestyn was. Decked out in that head-to-toe black leather (minus that spangles, sequins, and stitching, of course) is pretty damn fine. In those leather pants, he has an ass to make Shawn Christian weep in jealousy.

Although you need a translator to understand what drunk Susan is saying in today's episode, if you listen closely you can hear her mispronounce Stefano's name as "Stefano MiDera."

I don't know why I've always found that so hilarious, LoL.

This episode was so much fun! Seeing Susan was a hoot, especially when her teeth landed in Vivian's drink. One of my all-time favorite scenes!

So much hunkery in this episode! Bo, John, Franco... :wub:

Seeing this episode also made me realize just how much I miss Vivian and original Celeste :(

I do have to say that I noticed that 1997 John wasn't wheezing, breathing, or breathlessly whispering his lines in an overly dramatic fashion the way he does now.

Although, you have to admit he did seem to be much more natural and less hammy than he is nowadays. . . Which is especially confusing given the much more (intentionally) campy writing from 1997. :mellow:

I loved seeing this episode again. So good. I miss this DAYS. I miss feeling like things are actually happening, that things actually matter, that there's a story and you know you'll get a payoff. Sigh.

The funniest thing is though, just about everyone in this episode has either returned in the last few years or are STILL on the show. Which is the best part about soaps. Although we do have fake Jennifer, fake Billie ... lol. I kinda liked Krista Allen's sexy, drug addicted, scheming version. And wow, Stephanie Cameron sounded a little bit like Missy Reeves. Was weird.

Everyone looks so young and so good.

The ONLY nitpick I have, I'd rather have the episode following this when Marlena and Kristen get out of the room and Kristen is exposed. That would have been MUCH better. Let's hope they play that for New Years?

the fact that nbc even bothered to air a classic episode is amazing. I think there is a great possibility of future classic episodes being aired. I hope the ratings for this rerun were good!

It made me wonder if EJ was right the first time he saw Kristen. They really need to bring back bill, Laura and mike so the Hortons have a core. The imitation Jennifer was so much better than the one on now.

Stephanie Cameron was very pretty if nothing else.

She's my fave. Seriously.

I had to watch this live, though I DVR'd it. It was nice to see the stupidity that used to drive me crazy- flashbacks, fantasies, and voiceovers. And, by the end of the episode the friend I forced to watch it was totally into it. Actually he was enjoying it around the point where the drug dealer turned on Bo, because the gay porn-style dialogue was hilarious.

You could probably whittle down Reilly's stories to a 1-DVD set of awesomeness without losing very much. I wish they would.

Those teeth flying outta Susan's mouth never fails to crack me up. NEVER!

I hope they re-air another episode from this storyline on NYD.
