    When the character was first introduced, I thought he was kind of creepy, but then, when he was paired with Alexis, I thought, "Okay, he's a nice guy, but just a bit quirky." I guess they decided to go back to him being creepy again.

    At least Labine knew how to keep Luke and Laura interesting AND married. Ultimately, it was Guza who decided that the only way to keep Luke and Laura interesting was to break them up.

    I'm not so sure that GM lost her midas touch, that is her marketing instincts. What she did lose was the recognition that it's good story that is of prime importance on a soap.. Besides her sister, I think she brought on a HW named John Whelpley, a writer that I had never heard of before then and haven't heard anything about since. GM's second stint probably saw the greatest number of changes in the writer's room in a year on GH since 1977. Some names I remember seeing passing through on the writing staff during GM's second run were Arthur Bernard Lewis, Linda Grover, and Anne Howard Bailey, in addition to John Whelpley, who I had mentioned earlier.

    Even if it wasn't kind, it was true. As a viewer, I was satisfied with GH as it was right before Gloria Monty's return, and though Ms. Monty did help to save the show from cancellation in the late 70s, her return as EP of GH in the 90s was pretty bad. The ratings slid quite badly under her watch, and deservedly so. Rumor had it at the time that she fired Finola Hughes and that was the last straw for ABC.

    I remember Ed Platt's character, or I should say, I think I do. He played a Mr. Chamberlain, if I remember right. He was the father of a patient Lesley was treating, the wife of a man, a college professor that she had an affair with as a college student. It fell on lovable Jessie to keep the professor out of the room until Lesley was finished treating his wife and naturally, Jessie failed. I can still remember the organ fade out when Lesley and the professor's eyes met in his wife's hospital room after he stormed past Jessie. Simple as the story was, I'd take it over mob stuff any day.

    I did too, through the years. Despite the many good things Claire Labine did, writing out Sean and Tiffany was one of her goofs.

    The writers were no doubt caught just as off guard as viewers were by GF's sudden departure, and they got stuck having to wrap up a mess. At this point, it wouldn't surprise me one bit if neither Ned nor Alexis win, and Obrecht becomes mayor as a write-in candidate!

    In the last year or two, it seems to me that most women who lose in love in Port Charles promptly fall into alcoholism. Alexis did, Ava came close, and now Kiki is possibly going down the same road. The only woman who seems strong and smart lately is Aunt Stella!

    That's very true about populating Port Charles with "character actors". I also seem to remember a lady during the 80s that used to sell warm chestnuts on the docks, and also, gave background story to a character who really needed to hear it!

    In my opinion, Jessie's last big story was Phil Brewer's murder. Once the aftermath wrapped up from that, she never really had much to do anymore.

    I'd love to see them all again, too. They started to purge alot of the characters in 1975, and by 1977, my mother, who was a faithful GH viewer, stopped watching. She took no interest in the brand new Webber brothers and their sister Terri. She said, "I don't know all these new people." She never returned to watching either. My sister and I continued, off and on through the years. 1987 was actually a good year for GH, in my opinion. H. Wesley Kenney and Ann Marcus came aboard as EP and HW, and actually, under Ms.Marcus, the vets like Steve, Audrey, and even Jessie had more scenes, but even by then, it could be clearly seen that Emily Maclaughlin was ill.

    You are very blessed to have compared notes with someone from that time of doing a soap. While we will look at footage from Sharon's era and think that soap stories were simple and basic, they did not have technology on their side back then, thus making their work very, very difficult.

    She was there, but they listed Chris Van Etten's name again on a card alone.

    I guess the staff mortician just happens to be a damn good plastic surgeon, too!

    Sharon was a good person, but a constant thorn in old-school Lucille's side. She had a gift for saying the wrong thing around Lucille and one funny story toward the end of Sharon's run was when Sharon got bitten by the acting bug and came to work wearing her nurse's cap--and an orange dress, rather than a white one like a traditional nurse. Wearing the dress was a way for Sharon to express her creative metamorphosis. The orange dress drove poor Lucille the Stickler nuts. I have seen a picture of Sharon in that dress in this thread somewhere. Sharon was funny and pleasant, but without being a cartoon like so many characters are made to be today that have a lighter touch about them.
