I always thought Palmer and Erica had a more father/daughter relationship...while her friendship with Opal helped.  I didn't realize Nina and Erica were friendly..Nina was a bridesmaid at Erica's aborted prison wedding to Jeremy..plus Nina visited Erica a few times when Erica was pregnant with Bianca 

 

Ironically, one of Nina's BFFs was...Brooke, Erica's #1 rival. I think Nina was "friendly" with Erica, but I'm not sure they were actually friends, if that makes any sense. (It did in my head.)

Someone has been uploading every SNL episode onto the Internet Archives. 

 

This one has, at about 23 minutes, Susan Lucci's bit in a Night of 1,000 Stars event that was "attended" by Billy Crystal's Fernando Lamas.

This is Susan's episode. She was fortunate in that she not only hosted at a time when the show was well-written, but also at a low for female cast members, with Jan Hooks having to do most of the heavy lifting. As a result she has starring roles in three sketches along with smaller bits in others (she's only missing from one sketch the whole night) - I'm sure you've all seen the main two more than once, but there's another where she plays a mother-from-hell sending her teenage daughter into crying jags that is also worth a watch.

OMG, the cold open with the Lezbo jokes by Phil Hartman.  😵

This was a star-studded SNL cast!

Sorry, I should have put a warning on how gross the old days could be...

 

That era is "my" SNL and I still love and miss so many from that period, especially Jan and Phil. I'm so glad Susan got to host around then. Game Breakers, the monologue, and All My Luggage are absolutely timeless.

Gosh, I just love Erica so much!  This clip is vintage Erica.

 

 

 

Ooooh was that the very first time Erica met Mike Roy?

I'm watching the 35th anniversary episode, and I've seen it a million times, but something just occurred to me - when Tad and Erica surprised Joe with his anniversary party at the hospital, it really looks like Ray MacDonnell was actually surprised and wasn't expecting the episode to somewhat be built around him. Was that ever established or discussed in the press at the time?

This clips makes me laugh because Tad says he is 19.  This is in 1983, which means when All My Children went off the air, Tad was only 47!  MEK looked good in 2011, but not youthful.

I don't remember that discussed in the press but Ray acted very well played in the episode.

MEK really isn’t that far off, though, I think he was born in 1958 or 1959, so only 4-5 years off of Tad’s established age. I think Tad managed to escape any kind of SORASing or de-SORASing bc he was introduced as a 10-year-old in 1972-73.

 

But god he does look a thousand times better these days, and it sucks that we don’t have him as Tad on our screens regularly anymore. He was so checked out by 2005, probably earlier. I bet he’d be a lot more dynamic now.

You're right.  He's about 5 years off.  I guess by the time Tad was "47" in 2011, he had been through SOOOOOOO much drama, it was hard to believe he was only in his 40s.

Yeah, I think this was when Adam had some get rich scheme (I think? I don't remember the motivation really) where he faked his death. He somehow got kidnapped and held hostage by Billy Clyde and Christina Baranski, while Adam's wife, Erica was sexing up Mike Roy in the Chandler Mansion.

OMG Christine Baranski is TERRIBLE in this episode.  😆

Oh mannnn, Billy Clyde and Jewell :lol: I loved them keeping Adam holed up in their trailer.

That episode has both the terrible Nina recast and the terrible Liza recast. Wowzers.

Sounds like Christine's doing her best "Bill Murray in Caddyshack" impression.

It's even funnier when you consider she had won the Tony a few months earlier.
