Ummm Every Christmas episode from the first 20 years of AMC. Or something similar. Usually no big stories, but you get to see a lot of the cast, see family interaction, see how it changes year after year, etc.

As The World Turn:

I would love the episodes surrounding the Tad Channing murder mystery (1986) and the revelation of the murderer. There are several episodes missing from YT. I mention it because there were other storyline threads that were built into that one and most of the town were involved or suspects in that murder.

I have others but if I had to choose this is my top choice.

Nancy Pinkerton

How different was Nancy's Dorian and Robin's Dorian? Do you think Nancy would have done what Robin did in the later years with Dorian such as telling Vickie that her alter killed Victor? I wonder how Cartini would have changed the character of Dorian. From what I have seen they really turned Dorian into a character and the little I have seen of Nancy she would not have been good being the Comic Relief. Especially with David Vickers. Now I wonder how she would have handled Dorian/Joey. I would also like to see Dixie Carter's episodes.

I was born the year Robin took over from Claire Malis, so I've only seen clips of Nancy. From what I've read, Nancy's Dorian was very much the cold, calculating villainess, a role that she was very good at which ironically led to her losing the role she created. They wanted to keep Dorian around but they felt that the audience would never embrace Dorian being reminded of her dark history every time they saw Nancy's face. That led to them replacing her with Claire Malis who played lighter material.

When Claire decided to leave the show, Robin was offered the role and she made several suggestions about the character (better wardrobe, more humor). Robin is pretty much responsible for the neurotic glam Dorian that we came to know (which was excellently timed as Alexis Carrington was right around the corner and daytime would soon be cranking out its clones).

I have all the "Days" episodes from 1984-present in my collection, as well as some of the 1965 episodes, but here would be some of the episodes I'd like to be able to see:

1. The original unaired pilot with Mary Jackson as Alice Horton.
2-3. The variety show episodes from 1979.
4. Mickey & Maggie's wedding on the farm.
5-6. The "test" hour episode from 1974 & first hour-episode from 1975.
7-8-9-10. Debut episodes of Susan Seaforth, Bill Hayes, Suzanne Rogers, Deidre Hall.

Awesome choices. I really would love to get my hands on Nikki & Greg's wedding from 1979. I would also like to have:

* Sally finds out Snapper is marrying Chris and she pulls up a chair and sticks her head in the oven to kill herself and her unborn child.

* Katherine trying to start a lesbian relationship with Joanne Curtis.

* Chris Brooks rape storyline with Anthony Geary. He gets off scott free and I think she confronts him after the trial. Viewers were upset that poor Chris lost her virginity to rape.

* Chris and Snappers wedding.

* Leslie Brooks mental break down on stage and winds up in the loony bin.

* Liz Foster pulls the plug on Bill's respirator.

* Snapper finds Jill in a brothel and slaps the crap out of her.

* Laurie finds out Leslie is knocked up by her husband Lance.

* Laurie finds out her boyfriend Mark Henderson is her half brother.

* Victor and Julia's first appearance.

* Victor locking Michael Scott in the bomb shelter/basement and Julia finding him.

* Nikki's marriage to Greg and the modeling scam with Rose DeVille

* Nikki's marriage to Kevin Bancroft.

* Jack getting caught by Ashley on his wedding day to Patty with Diane Jenkins.

* Jack & Patty's wedding.

* Lauren tormenting Tracey by shaking candy bars at her saying " You know you want it".

* Vanessa Prentiss killing herself and framing Laurie to screw her over one final time.
