All three had the same names. Ruth, Wanda and Julie. Leslie mistaking the orderly for Brad same as Ashley mistaking the orderly for Victor and both being attacked. Pretty much the whole story was repeated. I knew Bell used similar elements in other stories, but this was by far the most blatant.

Also who else thinks the nurse looks similar to K.T Stevens? The woman could have played Vanessa's younger sister for sure

 I wonder if Bell meant for viewers to think it was the same 3 women after all those years, but the actresses were recast ?  I remember my Mom saying she thought those were the same ones in there with Leslie during Ashley's time in there. 

 

That one woman telling Leslie she was pretty and kissing her was surprising for 1974 daytime TV.  I would love to see this entire storyline play out. How long was Leslie in there ? Did the creepy orderly get caught with his pants down so to speak ? How long did Leslie go without food before they figured out she was starving ? I know someone posted the Lorie paid Leslie a visit and rubbed it in her face about being mentally sick and no one would believe her about Lorie's role in the mental breakdown. Leslie screamed Biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiitch !!!!!! before the commercial break so the censors wouldn't catch it. 

 

I remember when Ashley was there she had to get the nurse to stay in there at one point as she wolfed her food down.

Patient Wanda is played actress Marie Denn.........she appeared on the Brady Bunch in the episode 'Where's There's Smoke as the Mother of Greg's friend Tommy who wants to have a No Smoking Campaign. She asks Carol to join. Greg get's Tommy's jacket by mistake and it has cigarettes in it. She tells Carol she needs to deal with Greg when in fact it's her own son who's lighting up.

That nurse has so MANY of K.T. Stevens's traits that it's almost surreal.  I wonder who on earth the actress is.

This is fantastic! This era is so rare - I'm so excited to see more of the fallout between Tricia and Megan. I see the episode of Megan saying "how could you be such a bitch" is on there! I'm thinking of sharing these to Sabryn since I'm connected to her on social media.

 

If you ever get to 2001, feel free to upload your versions of them, in case there are differences in versions and quality.

Was Keith Dennison always supposed to be this [email protected] of a character?

Thank you. Hopefully we get Ashley giving it to Victor about the whole balloon payment fiasco. I have been waiting to see that again for ages.

The Dennisons weren’t exactly introduced in one of the shows most golden periods. They totally fit the bill of the likes of Kurt Costner. They were not exactly great characters; I’m nearly always Team Jill, so gutting her with Keith was not exactly my dream pairing. Ironical, I loved Megan with Tony and fell in love with Tricia eventually as well - when she went off the deep end. 
 

The only time Keith was ever good was when we got a TEMP KEITH in 1999 (?). That actor was super sexy and had off the charts chemistry with Jess Walton. I never understood why they went back to the original portrayer Granville Van Dusen (?) for all future visits.

I think you summed it it very well! 
 

On paper I think Keith Dennison could’ve worked quite well but the actor playing him was so not dynamic at all. Maybe someone like  Tristan Rogers should have been cast as Keith instead of that really crappy P.I. role he had on B&B at the time. It reminded me of what went wrong with Blade, possibly intriguing character but wrong actor for the role. 

 

I too loved Tony and Megan and it seemed for a minute they were going to be Y&R’s next big couple but they were quickly sidelined with the rise of the Glo by Jabot kids.  Some people blamed the recast but I think it was lazy on the show’s half if they couldn’t come up with early 20’s angst.

They didn't even TRY to write for Tony Viscardi after the recast.   How many times did Megan bat her eyes and say, "I can't wait to become Mrs. Tony Viscardi in every possible way?"  Pure cheese.   The only time the writers seemed interested in them was when Tricia kissed Tony and then kicked him and killed him.  There was a lot of potential in all of that, but the show raced through it, preferring to have Megan lament about her Perpetual Virginity.   And Keith --- yeah, I agree, the temporary recast (wasn't his name David Allen Brooks?) had way more charisma than Granville Van Dusen,  although his performances were pretty wooden.

I wonder how would Dennis Parlato, Phillip Brown or Roscoe Born would've done as Keith Dennison?

Loved the Confrontation between 2 sisters Tricia and Megan from early May 2000 after Meg finally learned the truth from Grace!

The Dennisons came on during the lull (Fall 1996 through first half of 1997). I wonder if the original intention for Tricia was to be a Victoria replacement. Tricia's first episode was the same week as Victoria leaving town, and Tricia was given storylines similar to Victoria's early storylines w/ Ryan.
