Is it wrong of me to hope that Eric gets all moody and jealous and demands Nicole stay away from Dr. Do it All.
That is something I would LOVE to see. Unfortunately, because AZ and SC are a real-life couple, I think we're going to have lots of Daniel/Nicole in our future. To be frank, I don't mind them as friends, but when the show hints at romance between them, I still get that icky feeling I used to get during their pregnant hotel romps. IMO, the random pairing of Nicole and Daniel during her pregnancy was the biggest fail MarDar produced.

Damm EJ's super sperm.

If he hadn't of given her a second miracle baby she never would have fainted and Dan would never have been interested in Nicole and we would have been Nic and Dan free.

Ugh. I'm *really* gonna need for Daniel and Nicole to be out of each other's orbits and quick.
Me too. Nicole is one of my favorite characters, but now I dread seeing her in episodes because I know that Dan is not far behind. I despise the so-called Dicole friendship. Nicole has enough money to live on her own; she doesn't need to stay with Dan. After these scenes, I hope she finds her own place.
Unless I've missed a spoiler indicating that Nicole is going to temporarily move back in with Daniel, she hasn't lived in his apartment since right after he and Jennifer reunited. She lives at the Salem Inn now.

Oops! I totally forgot about that. :$ She's still always there, though. So maybe this will end her frequent visits to his apartment.

"While EJ is busy blinking . . . ."

"Her mom spends a few minutes trying to console her but is soon distracted by something else."

Whoever wrote this knows EJ and Jennifer well! :blulaugh: It's a shame Jennifer can't act like a mother for once and spend more time with her daughter when she needs her.
I honestly wonder if the writers even like Jennifer.She mourns Jack for five seconds,she wants to turn JJ in to police because he has drugs in their house,and now she spends a few minutes consoling Abby who has just lost her cousin then drops her daughter like a hot rock to turn her laser focus back to Daniel.Jennifer gets worse and worse with each story.

Perhaps if Stephano was so successful in his own eyes in creating the likeness of Rafe, when he had that dopplegagger, . or what ever they called him, perhaps they tried it again and made themselves a NEW and Horrible Nick, and later on in time the real one will return, or then the fake one will return, or whomever it will require to spook us all out.... Man I hope not, Nick, as Blake Berris portrays him, is evil enough, and so not sure in my own mind.

Shawn Christian is 48 and Missy Reeves is 47. Has Days ever had a new pairing in that age range that was successful?
Days hasn't. In fact, looking at all soaps, the only couple I can think of are Lauren and Michael on Y&R. They were one of the most surprising couples to be put together, yet people loved them. Although, that mostly had to do with the fact that Jack Smith was a pure storytelling genius.
Adored them. When Lauren and Michael started their romance in I think 2004, Tracey E. Bregman was 40 and Christian LeBlanc was 45/46.
Were they front burner?
Yes, but not like Fetch. They had the same amount of airtime as other couples.

Michael and Lauren had only shared scenes once or twice before being put together, so they first had to be built up properly. That is why for a while the characters just went on dates and got to know each other before they became a couple. And the audience got to warm up to them in the process and came to love them. On paper, it seemed crazy to pair these two characters up, but someone was potential and they were right. For about 3-4 years, Michael and Lauren were quite possibly the show's most liked couple. Also, until last year they were never in a love triangle story. Whatever problems they had as a couple, it was just the two of them dealing with it. I, personally, appreciated that. It was a nice change to have one couple not have a third person in a relationship.

Lysie, if you have time, look up some clips of Michael and Lauren from 2004 and 2005. They are a really good example of how to write a new couple in their 40s. Fetch, on the other hand, are an example of how NOT to write them.

On All My Children, how old were Ruth Brent and Joe Martin when they got together?

They were single parents when they met. Ruth's grown son Philip from her prior marriage was dating Joe's grown daughter Tara from his prior marriage.

I remember the romance of Ruth and Joe as being important, but I don't remember if it was "front burner" or not.

Ruth and Joe got married, and later on they adopted Tad. And then Joe and Ruth had their own child together Joey -- with Ruth as an older mother, but I don't remember how old Ruth was. (Joey was later nicknamed/renamed Jake when he was an adult).

I have to agree with this. Lauren and Michael were not only really liked, they were one fo the greatest couples ever due to many reasons. Both had big roots in the show's history, Lauren had been with the show from 1982 and started out as the classic bad girl who later turned into a front burner heroine, and Michael was really a bad man when he started 20 years ago and was obsessed with Chris...it was funny too, because all the while, even though these characters has been in the close vicinity of each other through common denominators, they never really had had any scenes together, and I don't think anyone could have imagined they could ever be together, as a couple let alone succeed. I mean, and now, they have together for over 10 years and have been married for nine, they'll soon break Nick and Sharon's record of ten by this rate.

"Jennifer expresses her discomfort with Daniel's new relationship"

Umm... what? Is Jennifer having memory problems? How is the Dicole friendship new? I can understand wanting to block out that whole "bullying a high risk pregnant woman" thing, but you were accused of a crime during that fiasco, Jenny.

If we're not allowed to forget to Dan/Nicole, then she shouldn't be allowed to, either.

Maybe Jen and Nicole do have something in common after all. (apart from a show destroying love of Daniel).
