IMDB says 4732 aired Mon. Nov 11, 1991.

EDITING later because I'm blind.

If it's Nov 8th then it'd a Nathan/Olivia/Dru/Neil day with Neil and Dru arguing about her modelling instead of pursuing ballet. Then Dru has Christine teach her how to model. Also a Sheila/Lauren confrontation day. Nov 11th is when Lauren's baby was dying and you had some Katherine/Dina scenes. Will be interesting to see which of these episodes actually airs.

I think it’s 11/7/91 Brad and Traci’s second wedding

She mentioned Brock Peters and she said in her upcoming podcast she’s going to speak more about the history of soaps. Why would you expect her to spend a limited amount of time focusing on things that she would have little knowledge of? It only makes sense she’d focus primary on her character and what came after since that’s the purpose of the videos, to celebrate Winters Week. 
 

Also, let’s not act like those actors you mentioned had the type of story the black characters were given in the 90s...

I'm mainly speaking about her statements over the last decade combined. And I disagree... they were given  a ton of story. I watched it .

I think i know the scene your talking about, lauren trys to embarrass traci about her weight in front of danny and Amy is in that scene as well.

 

Aint that something in most of the clips i see of Amy she's usually with Paul or Andy or those 2 brothers she had a traingle with so i guess she came on as those random teen girls who happen to be black just to set the mood which is good I think every race/culture should be explored so we can know about them as well.

 

I don't remember Amy Lewis ever being a "random teen girl".  Seems like Amy was always Traci's best friend from the time that Amy appeared, a dance and aerobics instructor (Stephanie was a dancer in real life), and the daughter of Commander Frank Lewis of the police force.   She was a contract character from the get-go.   Lauren didn't like Amy, because Amy knew Lauren was a heifer.  Later on, Amy went to work for Paul and Andy, but at first she was a college girl teaching aerobics and helping Traci deal with the snotty Lauren.

I loved this 2006 episode. As has been said, makes me hate that they allowed VR to leave. I just love the Winters family in these scenes, feels genuine and real. Sharon Case looks absolutely fantastic here. Wow. I know Amber was pretty hit or miss but I enjoyed seeing her arrival and introduction to Kay. I forgot how beautiful Adrienne Frantz is. This was my first time seeing Colleen and JT together, they seem to have chemistry despite her concern for the professor. 

 

Outside of that WOW did the show move fast. I swear they went from set to set to set and back to the same set. I did however love the small touches like Lauren and Michael taking turns with the baby and their careers.

VR keeps saying Bill Bell worked with her on the foster child story with Devon - what is the background on this? I thought Bell was phasing himself out of HWing around '98 or so, and he died around the same time of the story.

Bell was definitely ailing by the time that story hit the screen. In fact, Bell died less than 10 months after Devon debuted on the show. Jack Smith was firmly in control as both HW and EP at this point.

(My eyes did not read correctly when I thought IMDB said Nov 11).

 

I agree that they must be airing Traci and Brad's second wedding.

I wonder why they never kept Amy around for a triangle with Olivia and Nathan or even Dru and Neil.

They did bring back Stephanie Williams (Amy) for 2 eps shortly before Dru’s debut but then General Hospital stole Stephanie away

This Stephanie Williams lady, i never cared to do my research on this one but was she just a detective working with Carl? How long was she on and did she interact with amy at all?

Oh yeah, Stephanie Williams definitely "interacted" with Amy.  She was the beautiful young actress who portrayed Amy Lewis.  lol.

Dr. Neil Curtis, I've never read or heard much about what led to Stephanie Williams leaving the show.  At the time it was happening, I thought it was a pretty bad mistake to let her go.   My guess is that Bill Bell temporarily ran out of storyline ideas for her and released her from her contract.   She had a haphazard "going-away" storyline of some sort --- such as Amy's dad had a heart attack in San Diego (or something), and she had to go spend time with him.  (I'm a little bit vague on it at the moment.)  Then as someone said above, Amy began reappearing several months later in a recurring capacity (no contract).  Seems like Nathan Hastings found her working out in the gym and said, "Gosh, Amy, I didn't realize you were back in town," and she said, "Yes, I just got back", or something.   It seemed that Bell was about to start working Amy back into the storyline.  Then suddenly General Hospital gave Stephanie Williams a long-term contract to play the role of Simone Hardy, so any recurring work planned for her on Y&R quickly went out the window.  Soon after, Drucilla was introduced.
