Classic GH Thread in Discuss The Soaps Posted 10 hours ago · Report reply 22 minutes ago, j swift said: Don't forget Cousin Joey Mancini (aka the lost Eckert). He was in the first scene of Tony Geary's return episode, flirting with Amy at the nurses station, while Bill was laid up in a hospital bed (hurt by the Mac's eco group's bombing of the Q ship) and Bobbie was shocked by his similarity to Luke (even though Bill was blond and not permed). Cousin Joey appeared for a couple of weeks and then disappeared into the mist of the Port Charles just like Laura (not literally, but nobody ever mentioned him again). It was a crazy transition because weeks prior Bobbie was involved in a very heavy baby selling scam story, and crying daily over the loss of her marriage to Tony and her baby. She was even suspended from the hospital due to her involvement in the illegal adoption. The villain who set up Lucas's adoption was also poisoning the water supply at the apartment where some of the nurses lived. And there was a possibility that Scorpio, not the presumed-dead Julien, was Lucas's father. Meanwhile, Edge Jerome (the Cousin Joey of the mobsters) was flirting with Anna. Then, a month later, Bobbie was suddenly back at GH and had to play wacky in the scenes with Ruby while they spewed exposition about how their cousins lived in Port Charles but they never spoke to them. The nurse's water was fine and Scorpio was told by Cheryl that he was not Lucas's father. Anna started tying up Robert in order to seduce him and Edge pivoted to Dawn before both were quickly killed off. Then, Papa Eckert died, Mama Eckert moved out west (never returning for Jenny's wedding or Bill's funeral), Bill became wealthy by surprise and his ex-wife returned creating the Eckerts 2.0. I think the best remnant from that period was Bill and Sly's lighthouse set which Kevin moved into after Bill's untimely death. I remember all this well. After a couple months i switched over to GL. The changes happen way too quickly. Most of the cast was purged. I hated that they killed Dawn. I Hated that they made Julian Lucas's father. When it was quite clear that Robert was intended to be Lucas's father. I liked the new characters like Rita and Edge who were dropped. I hated that Bobbie/Cheryl baby Lucas drama was aborted. All of a sudden. Pretty much out of nowhere. Anna and Robert were awkwardly put together. I think cousin Joey was on a couple of months. He dated a fellow newbie Nurse Sheila.
