They must have let Lauralee handpick the episodes for that week, which is why we are getting good ones so far! :D

An entire week dedicated to two characters that have been extras for years? I hope that ends up being wrong. Cricket is one of my all time favorites, but the pairing with Paul has killed her character. Why highlight that?! If anything a Paul week might make more sense considering his tenure. Or even a Christine week focusing on her various lovers, but just focusing on Paul and Christine?!

#5520, December 29, 1994

 

A few minutes before Christine and Paul are about to marry each other, an unknown car runs them down.
(Of course we know now this was Phyllis).

 

-----

 

This is a new recap of watching an old 1994 video. 
Of course some of the scenes will be omitted in the 2020 rebroadcast, in order to allow for commercials.

 

December 29, 1994

 

Before the wedding:

 

At Lauren's office, Brad would like to know how Lauren feels about Paul and Christine's wedding, and Lauren replies that Paul is her friend and she just wants Paul to be happy. Brad invites Lauren to New Year's Eve later that week, and she accepts.

 

Danny has decided to leave Genoa City and spend some time in New York for a while, because he feels that it would be too painful to be around Christine and Paul once they are newlyweds. Danny knows that Katherine is grieving Rex who died a few weeks earlier, so Danny invites Katherine to come to New York with him but she declines. Danny goes over to Phyllis' apartment to tell her he is leaving town, but Phyllis is not there. The nanny Joani gives little Daniel to Danny and she leaves. Danny waits for Phyllis, unaware of what Phyllis is up to.

 

Paul and Christine are in Paul's office. They're going to get married tonight. They're very happy. They say goodbye to Lynne and leave. Alone, Lynne sheds a tear but says to herself that she knows Paul will be happy and that's what matters.

 

Everyone except the bride and groom are at the wedding venue. Matron of honor is Nina, and bridesmaids are Lynne and Lauren. The three of them are in identical black dresses. Ryan is there as Nina's husband. Mary Williams is there. No bride and groom. Everyone waits, then makes phonecalls, but the bride and groom cannot be found.

 

Meanwhile, outside Paul's office, a mysterious driver in a blue car speeds up and intentionally hits Christine and Paul. Y&R shows the license plate number but not Phyllis' face. The car speeds off, leaving Paul and Christine lying in the road.

 

 

Drucilla/Neil/Malcolm/Olivia/Stephanie

Drucilla and Neil argue about New Year's Eve. Neil tells Dru that (without consulting her first), Neil had invited people over for New Year's Eve. But Dru would prefer to be alone with Neil, so Neil agrees to cancel the party. Meanwhile, Malcolm is unaware that the New Year's Eve party will be cancelled, and Malcolm tells Olivia about the party. Malcolm asks Stephanie Simmons to come to Neil and Dru's New Year's Eve party as his date, but Stephanie feels she is too busy. Olivia tries to play matchmaker between Malcolm and Stephanie.
(Stephanie Simmons is played by Vivica A. Fox)

 

Luan/Jack/MariJo/Rick/Blade/Ashley

Background: Ashley's husband Blade has a supposedly-dead twin Rick, who is secretly in Genoa City. Mari Jo Mason (aka Marilyn) knew both twins in the past and she recognizes Rick. Ashley and Blade don't know that Rick is alive. Jack had been engaged to Mari Jo Mason. However he recently reconnected with his longlost first love, local restaurateur Luan from Vietnam, and her children Keemo and Mai. Jack has invited Luan to spend a week with him in the Virgin Islands, which will happen soon. Mari Jo kept the engagement ring and still wants to marry Jack.

This episode: Luan's daughter Mai tells Luan she is excited about her mother's coming island trip with Jack. Jack tells Ashley that he is buying an island resort wardrobe for Luan. Ashley mentions to Jack that it's romantic that Luan and Jack share a son. Mari Jo confides in Rick, Rick encourages Mari Jo to go after Jack, and Mari Jo decides to plot.
 

(Luan and Mai appeared in this episode, but Keemo was not in this particular episode. Keemo had been appearing regularly for a few months. In the Dec 29, 1994 broadcast, Ashley referred to the fact that Jack and Luan have a son. but Ashley didn't say Keemo's name.).

I found the ORIGINAL recap from 1994!

 

December 29, 1994. Original recap from 1994.

 

https://groups.google.com/d/msg/rec.arts.tv.soaps.cbs/rj_sKsXx3Ts/j9qMW22OY70J 

(It took a while to find it because it was in the newly-created newsgroup "rec.arts.tv.soaps.cbs" which had just split off from the old "rec.arts.tv.soaps".)

 

This recap is the same as originally posted with these minor changes:

I omitted the recapper's personal dislikes and and likes.

I corrected the spelling of character names. 
Changed from Kathryn to Katherine.

Changed from Mary Jo to Mari Jo.

Changed from Joanie to Joani.

Changed from Lynn to Lynne.
Changed from Laun to Luan.
(This is *not* a critique of the recapper. There was no google in 1994 to look up spelling, and some days the credits didn't air. The recapper did a great job.).

Y&R: Update for 12-29-94
(Posted 12/30/94)

Update for the Young and the Restless

 

 

Jabot Laboratory

 

Ashley is busy mixing up some no doubt incredible potion that will be a number one best seller as hand cream, body lotion, perfume, or makeup as Jack walks in. Jack is excited about his upcoming trip to the Caribbean with Luan. He'll be gone for a whole week!!! Seven whole days of basking in the sun -- no phones -- no faxes. Jack is still amazed, apparently Ashley is too, that he and Luan found each other after 20 (count 'em, 20!!) years. Ashley wants to plug Luan and tries to bring up Mari Jo, but Jack doesn't want to hear it. Jack, instead, brings up Ashley's favorite subject, Blade. Ashley says that Blade is trying, but as far as she's concerned, no trust = no relationship.

 

 

Nina and Ryan's Apartment

 

Nina is all dressed up and ready for Cricket and Paul's wedding. She is wearing a black velvety short dress and Ryan is in what looks like a tuxedo shirt (pants too, I suppose but couldn't tell for sure). Ryan thinks that Cricket (and he called her Cricket, not Chris) will be upset because Nina looks soooooo good in her dress. Nina, by the way, is the Matron of Honor (don't know if we knew this or not). Ryan and Nina remember their wedding. Nina says she was nervous, but Ryan says he wasn't. He says, "I figure once you're at the altar you'd better have made up your mind." He wonders if Cricket is nervous. Nina says no.

 

 

Lauren's Office

 

Lauren is on the phone wondering about the whereabouts of some important documents. She has a wedding to go to soon so she wants them to messenger them to her home if she's not at the office. Brad enters with something that looks suspiciously like a Christmas present. Lauren wonders if it is an early New Year's present or an extremely late Christmas present. She gives Brad some trouble suggesting that she obviously wasn't on his priority Christmas list. She gives Brad trouble about how late the gift is. Brad tells her she doesn't have time to argue, she has somewhere to go. She says she's got a wedding to go to -- she's a bridesmaid. Brad wonders who is getting married. Lauren seems surprised that Brad doesn't know (like Paul would put Brad on the guest list!!). Lauren tells him its Paul Williams and Christine Blair (both first and last names so poor little Brad won't get confused). Brad wants to know how Lauren feels about the wedding. Vapid stare from Lauren.

 

 

Paul's Office

 

Cricket is finishing some documents for Paul. She tells him all he has to do is sign and have Lynn notarize it. Paul says it will be his last official act of the year -- Cricket says it will be his last official act as a single man. Something is said about shackles, ball and chain, no more singles bars, blind dates, reading the personals. Paul wonders what he'll do for fun. Cricket says he won't have trouble finding fun things to do -- she plans to distract him like he's never been distracted. They kiss. Lynn walks in and asks if they're ready for her, sees them kissing and says "Guess not."

 

 

Roll Credits

 

 

Neil and Drucilla's Apartment

 

Neil and Drucilla are on the couch all cuddled up reminiscing about Christmas and how great it was. Neil says it was all because of Drucilla and the baby. Neil made her holiday too. They look forward to New Years. They discover they've both got plans in mind for New Year's Eve. Neil thinks their plans will be the same. Neil wants to have the "gang" i.e., Nathan, Olivia, Malcolm, over to celebrate. Drucilla had something else in mind -- she tells Neil that he was wrong when he thought she had the same plan in mind.

 

 

Mari Jo's Office

 

Rick, or is it Blade, interrupts Mari Jo daydreaming -- interrupts her with kisses on the neck, must be Rick. Mari Jo gets mad because Rick doesn't seem to understand yet that it is dangerous for him to come a callin'. She gets up to close her office door as Rick asks how she knew he wasn't Blade. You kissed me on the neck, moron (Blade would prefer to slit it, as we all know). Rick wants to know how she is. Well, she's lousy (remember she just found out about the little trip Jack is planning with Luan). She says all of her plans blew up in her face. Rick tells her to "pour your heart out to me baby" as he snuggles her from behind.

 

 

Luan's Apartment

 

Luan and Mai discuss Luan's upcoming trip. Mai tells her some about the Caribbean. Mai says she's seen pictures -- it's beautiful. Luan says "sounds very interesting" (although she doesn't sound very interested). "Interesting?" Mai is incredulous. She reminds Luan that this could be the trip of a lifetime. Mai is excited for Luan but wonders that Luan doesn't seem too excited. Luan says she is excited in her own way. Mai says the trip really sounds like a honeymoon to her. Vapid stare from Luan.

 

 

Jabot Laboratory

 

Jack wants to know what Ashley wants from Blade. Ashley wants Blade to tell her the truth. Jack decides he better stay out of it. Ashley turns the conversation back to Jack. She wants to know if he's all set for his trip. Jack is on his way to see Lauren Fenmore. He's asked her to help him put together a wardrobe for Luan for the trip. Ashley says Jack is sweet and Luan will love it. Jack talks about how Luan has been solidly focused on building a restaurant all these years. He thinks she's probably never been on a vacation. Jack prepares to leave. He's got a million things to do (guess he wasn't invited to the wedding either). Ashley wishes him a great trip. Jack says he is nervous and excited.

 

 

Nina and Ryan's Apartment

 

Ryan questions Nina about Cricket. They talk about how Cricket thought she and Danny were the perfect pair. Ryan reminds Nina that all that was Danny's fault. Nina says Cricket understands that but can't help wondering "as a woman" if she failed some way -- "as a woman." Nina tells Ryan to forget it, he wouldn't understand. Ryan asks if Nina knows where Paul and Cricket are going on their honeymoon. Nina doesn't know. Ryan talks about the honeymoon he promised Nina. She says it's okay that they haven't had their honeymoon. She has school, after all, and he is busy at work. Ryan says they should make time for a honeymoon. Nina agrees. Nina brings up their wedding again about how Ryan did the right thing because she was pregnant. Ryan admonishes her that there was more to it than that. Nina seeks more reassurance (anyone surprised?). Ryan says "it was the best thing that ever happened to me." Nina is delighted. Blah, blah, blah, they go on… kissing.

 

 

Lauren's Office

 

Lauren wonders why she should care that Paul is marrying Cricket. Brad reminds Lauren that she was married to Paul once. Lauren says she and Paul are close friends and the Cricket will make him very happy -- they're very compatible. Brad gives Lauren a look. Lauren insists she's thrilled for Paul. Brad thought Cricket and Danny would get back together. Lauren says Danny is looking elsewhere these days. Brad suggests Danny is looking Lauren's direction. Lauren says you never know and decides that Brad is jealous. Brad says that Lauren hears what she wants to hear and calls her "cupcake". Brad gets down to the real reason for his visit. He asks Lauren out for New Year's Eve. Lauren looks coy (I suppose). Brad asks if Lauren thinks he's been taking her for granted again. Brad also says that it's just an invitation, she doesn't have to accept, but she does. Seems her plans changed. She was supposed to be out of town. But now, she'll be with Brad. Lauren prepares to take off for the wedding (what happened to her meeting with Jack???). Brad tells Lauren to wish Paul well. Lauren thanks him for the late Christmas present. They kiss, Brad leaves.

 

 

Neil and Drucilla's Apartment

 

Neil asks what Drucilla wanted to do for New Year's Eve. Dru wanted to stay in with just Neil. Neil wants a party. He begs. Dru says it'll be the last chance for them to spend New Year's Eve alone (I guess, they've never heard of sending the kid off to Olivia and Nathan) -- what with the baby on the way. Neil admits to Dru that it would be fun, but, you see, he's already invited everyone. Dru is mad and she tells Neil that she doesn't like it that he planned it without consulting her.

 

 

The Chancellor Mansion

 

Danny has come to visit. Katherine hopes he's not worried about her. He says no, he just wanted to see how she was holding up. Danny is amazed that Katherine is doing so well. He tells Katherine that he came to tell her he's going to New York. Katherine wants to know why. He won't tell her. He asks her to come along. Katherine is stunned.

 

 

Paul's Office

 

Lynn gets Paul and Cricket's attention -- remember they are kissing. She is there to notarize the papers. Cricket asks Lynn if everything is ready. Lynn assures Cricket that everything is in place. Cricket says it looks like all she has to do is finish packing. "Finish packing!!!! You haven't finished packing?!?!?!?!" Paul exclaims. Lynn asks Cricket if she knows where they are honeymooning. Cricket doesn't know. Paul tells Cricket to sign the document. "This will be the second to last time I sign my name Christine Blair." Lynn looks upset.

 

 

Outside the building where Paul's office is

 

We see cars covered with a light dusting of snow -- except for the black, idling, DWL-5R8 license plate car. Zoom in on the exhaust pipe -- exhaust coming out.
[note from 2020: License plate was actually DLW-5R8]

 

 

Luan's Apartment

 

Mai asks Luan if she doesn't agree that Jack intended this as a honeymoon. Luan says she doesn't think about such things. Mai insists and describes what they will do. It will be the most romantic time of Luan's life. Luan is pleased with the descriptions and Mai's enthusiasm. Luan says that it is best to wait to see what happens. Too much anticipation can lessen one's enjoyment of the event. Luan sends Mai back to work. Mai wants Luan to enjoy this. Luan is overwhelmed by the thought of the trip but promises Mai she will enjoy it. They hug.

 

 

Mari Jo's Office

 

Mari Jo admits to Rick that Jack is not under her control, that things have gone wrong. She reminds him of the ski trip she planned? She tells Rick the "Vietnamese Woman" is taking priority right now. How, Rick wonders. Mari Jo tells him of Jack and Luan's upcoming Christmas gift trip to the Caribbean. Rick is astounded -- "even though you're wearing his engagement ring?" and Mari Jo tells Rick that Jack doesn't want it back. Mari Jo is afraid that Jack is falling in love with Luan all over again. Mari Jo is depressed. She finally meets someone she really cares about. Rick wonders about where he fit in, back in her past. Mari Jo is serious. Jack is everything she admires -- smart, funny, kind, and he cares for her, or at least he did. Mari Jo insists that if it hadn't been for Luan, she and Jack would be married by now. She doesn't know what to do. She doesn't want to lose Jack. She doesn't want to be pushy, doesn't want to not push. What to do?? What to do?? Rick tells her to not quit. If she wants him bad enough, go for it. Mari Jo looks unconvinced.

 

 

Neil and Drucilla's Apartment

 

Neil tries to apologize. Dru says not good enough. She wants to know who he invited. Well, let's see, there's Malcolm, Olivia -- Dru still doesn't want a party. Neil says he'll call it off if that's what she wants. Dru is pleased. She makes Neil promise he won't be mad. They kiss.

 

 

Olivia's Office

 

Malcolm shows up. He's looking for Stephanie. Malcolm admits he's crazy about her, but she's a tough woman to deal with. Malcolm says Stephanie better be careful or someday his ship just might set sail. Malcolm wants to invite Stephanie to Neil's for New Year's Eve. Stephanie walks in. She is surprised to see him. He says he's been looking for her and invites her for New Year's Eve. She says no -- he makes it clear she'd be his date when she says she wasn't invited to Neil's. Olivia steps in and asks Malcolm to go get her some coffee. He goes. Olivia tries to help Malcolm's cause. Stephanie insists that medicine comes first with her, not dating. Olivia tells her to reconsider, but all Stephanie wants to do is get Olivia's opinion on a patient.

 

 

Paul's Office

 

Cricket signs, and reminds one and all that the next document she'll be signing is her marriage certificate. She prepares to leave. Lynn asks Cricket if she needs a lift. Paul says he'll take her (I want to know how she got there in the first place), he's got no last-minute details to see to. Paul thanks Lynn for all the extra work she's done in the last week. Lynn tells Paul good-bye, gets weepy-eyed and she and Paul hug. Paul and Cricket leave, Lynn cries.

 

 

Mari Jo's Office

 

Rick suggests Mari Jo is getting soft in her old age -- in the old days, she'd never have given up. Mari Jo agrees that she won't give up and thanks Rick for the pep talk. Mari Jo asks Rick, again, why he is in Genoa City. Rick won't tell and leaves wishing Mari Jo luck. They kiss.

 

 

Olivia's Office

 

Malcolm returns with coffee. Olivia is alone. Malcolm says he got the message -- he'll leave Stephanie alone. He goes on and on and on about not taking that crap -- he'll go find someone else. Olivia interrupts his tirade -- "You have a date." Malcolm, "Say, What?" Olivia got Stephanie to agree to go with Malcolm on New Year's Eve.

 

 

The Chancellor Mansion

 

Katherine can't imagine going to New York with Danny. Katherine won't go. Katherine wants to know if Danny is going back east for good. Danny doesn't know, he just wants to leave for a while. He'll keep in touch. Katherine asks another question -- are you running away -- what Rex would want to know. Danny says it's just too hard for him to be around, what with Cricket getting married and all. Going away will be good for him. Katherine comforts him and wishes him luck. They hug. Katherine is teary-eyed as they say good-bye. Danny leaves.

 

 

Luan's Apartment

 

Mai is sweeping the floor when Mari Jo shows up. Mari Jo asks about Christmas. Mari Jo asks for Luan. She wants to wish her a Happy New Year. Mai tells Mari Jo that Luan is in the restaurant. Mari Jo didn't see her. Mai goes to look in the kitchen. Mari Jo mutters she is very anxious to give her my best.

 

 

Phyllis' Apartment (which looks like a makeover of Nina's old place)

 

Joani (the nanny) is there and lets Danny in. Danny wants to see Phyllis. She isn't there and Joani doesn't know where she went or when she will be back. Danny decides to wait.

 

 

Outside Paul's Office

 

Cricket and Paul are walking on the sidewalk. They stop to hug and talk about the vows they are about to take. They kiss. Cricket is still trying to find out where they're going on their honeymoon. Paul won't tell. They stop to kiss again.

 

They walk in the street instead of on the sidewalk. Zoom in on a bright red tail light!!! Ominous music begins.

 

Paul realizes he left something in the office and gives Cricket the car keys (I still want to know how she got to the office in the first place). He tells her to get in the car and turn on the heater -- she's cold -- and he'll be right back. Cricket starts across the street. A car tire squeals. Paul looks. We see the car -- no headlights, just barely the top of someone's head is seen over the steering wheel. The lights come on. Cricket is blinded in white lights. Paul is yelling, "Chriiiiiiiiiiisssss!!!!" He runs to save her. He is ineptly unable to get Cricket out of the way and they are both hit and fall to the pavement on opposite sides of the speeding car. The car disappears and Cricket and Paul are lying on the pavement as passersby come up -- someone yells "Call 911."

Mai is excited for Luan but wonders that Luan doesn't seem too excited. Luan says she is excited in her own way. Mai says the trip really sounds like a honeymoon to her. Vapid stare from Luan.

 

 

Jabot Laboratory

 

Jack wants to know what Ashley wants from Blade. Ashley wants Blade to tell her the truth. Jack decides he better stay out of it. Ashley turns the conversation back to Jack. She wants to know if he's all set for his trip. Jack is on his way to see Lauren Fenmore. He's asked her to help him put together a wardrobe for Luan for the trip. Ashley says Jack is sweet and Luan will love it. Jack talks about how Luan has been solidly focused on building a restaurant all these years. He thinks she's probably never been on a vacation. Jack prepares to leave. He's got a million things to do (guess he wasn't invited to the wedding either). Ashley wishes him a great trip. Jack says he is nervous and excited.

 

 

Nina and Ryan's Apartment

 

Ryan questions Nina about Cricket. They talk about how Cricket thought she and Danny were the perfect pair. Ryan reminds Nina that all that was Danny's fault. Nina says Cricket understands that but can't help wondering "as a woman" if she failed some way -- "as a woman." Nina tells Ryan to forget it, he wouldn't understand. Ryan asks if Nina knows where Paul and Cricket are going on their honeymoon. Nina doesn't know. Ryan talks about the honeymoon he promised Nina. She says it's okay that they haven't had their honeymoon. She has school, after all, and he is busy at work. Ryan says they should make time for a honeymoon. Nina agrees. Nina brings up their wedding again about how Ryan did the right thing because she was pregnant. Ryan admonishes her that there was more to it than that. Nina seeks more reassurance (anyone surprised?). Ryan says "it was the best thing that ever happened to me." Nina is delighted. Blah, blah, blah, they go on… kissing.

 

 

Lauren's Office

 

Lauren wonders why she should care that Paul is marrying Cricket. Brad reminds Lauren that she was married to Paul once. Lauren says she and Paul are close friends and the Cricket will make him very happy -- they're very compatible. Brad gives Lauren a look. Lauren insists she's thrilled for Paul. Brad thought Cricket and Danny would get back together. Lauren says Danny is looking elsewhere these days. Brad suggests Danny is looking Lauren's direction. Lauren says you never know and decides that Brad is jealous. Brad says that Lauren hears what she wants to hear and calls her "cupcake". Brad gets down to the real reason for his visit. He asks Lauren out for New Year's Eve. Lauren looks coy (I suppose). Brad asks if Lauren thinks he's been taking her for granted again. Brad also says that it's just an invitation, she doesn't have to accept, but she does. Seems her plans changed. She was supposed to be out of town. But now, she'll be with Brad. Lauren prepares to take off for the wedding (what happened to her meeting with Jack???). Brad tells Lauren to wish Paul well. Lauren thanks him for the late Christmas present. They kiss, Brad leaves.

 

 

Neil and Drucilla's Apartment

 

Neil asks what Drucilla wanted to do for New Year's Eve. Dru wanted to stay in with just Neil. Neil wants a party. He begs. Dru says it'll be the last chance for them to spend New Year's Eve alone (I guess, they've never heard of sending the kid off to Olivia and Nathan) -- what with the baby on the way. Neil admits to Dru that it would be fun, but, you see, he's already invited everyone. Dru is mad and she tells Neil that she doesn't like it that he planned it without consulting her.

 

 

The Chancellor Mansion

 

Danny has come to visit. Katherine hopes he's not worried about her. He says no, he just wanted to see how she was holding up. Danny is amazed that Katherine is doing so well. He tells Katherine that he came to tell her he's going to New York. Katherine wants to know why. He won't tell her. He asks her to come along. Katherine is stunned.

 

 

Paul's Office

 

Lynn gets Paul and Cricket's attention -- remember they are kissing. She is there to notarize the papers. Cricket asks Lynn if everything is ready. Lynn assures Cricket that everything is in place. Cricket says it looks like all she has to do is finish packing. "Finish packing!!!! You haven't finished packing?!?!?!?!" Paul exclaims. Lynn asks Cricket if she knows where they are honeymooning. Cricket doesn't know. Paul tells Cricket to sign the document. "This will be the second to last time I sign my name Christine Blair." Lynn looks upset.

 

 

Outside the building where Paul's office is

 

We see cars covered with a light dusting of snow--except for the black, idling, DWL-5R8 license plate car. Zoom in on the exhaust pipe -- exhaust coming out.
[note from 2020: License plate was actually DLW-5R8]

 

 

Luan's Apartment

 

Mai asks Luan if she doesn't agree that Jack intended this as a honeymoon. Luan says she doesn't think about such things. Mai insists and describes what they will do. It will be the most romantic time of Luan's life. Luan is pleased with the descriptions and Mai's enthusiasm. Luan says that it is best to wait to see what happens. Too much anticipation can lessen one's enjoyment of the event. Luan sends Mai back to work. Mai wants Luan to enjoy this. Luan is overwhelmed by the thought of the trip but promises Mai she will enjoy it. They hug.

 

 

Mari Jo's Office

 

Mari Jo admits to Rick that Jack is not under her control, that things have gone wrong. She reminds him of the ski trip she planned? She tells Rick the "Vietnamese Woman" is taking priority right now. How, Rick wonders. Mari Jo tells him of Jack and Luan's upcoming Christmas gift trip to the Caribbean. Rick is astounded -- "even though you're wearing his engagement ring?" and Mari Jo tells Rick that Jack doesn't want it back. Mari Jo is afraid that Jack is falling in love with Luan all over again. Mari Jo is depressed. She finally meets someone she really cares about. Rick wonders about where he fit in, back in her past. Mari Jo is serious. Jack is everything she admires -- smart, funny, kind, and he cares for her, or at least he did. Mari Jo insists that if it hadn't been for Luan, she and Jack would be married by now. She doesn't know what to do. She doesn't want to lose Jack. She doesn't want to be pushy, doesn't want to not push. What to do?? What to do?? Rick tells her to not quit. If she wants him bad enough, go for it. Mari Jo looks unconvinced.

 

 

Neil and Drucilla's Apartment

 

Neil tries to apologize. Dru says not good enough. She wants to know who he invited. Well, let's see, there's Malcolm, Olivia -- Dru still doesn't want a party. Neil says he'll call it off if that's what she wants. Dru is pleased. She makes Neil promise he won't be mad. They kiss.

 

 

Olivia's Office

 

Malcolm shows up. He's looking for Stephanie. Malcolm admits he's crazy about her, but she's a tough woman to deal with. Malcolm says Stephanie better be careful or someday his ship just might set sail. Malcolm wants to invite Stephanie to Neil's for New Year's Eve. Stephanie walks in. She is surprised to see him. He says he's been looking for her and invites her for New Year's Eve. She says no -- he makes it clear she'd be his date when she says she wasn't invited to Neil's. Olivia steps in and asks Malcolm to go get her some coffee. He goes. Olivia tries to help Malcolm's cause. Stephanie insists that medicine comes first with her, not dating. Olivia tells her to reconsider, but all Stephanie wants to do is get Olivia's opinion on a patient.

 

 

Paul's Office

 

Cricket signs, and reminds one and all that the next document she'll be signing is her marriage certificate. She prepares to leave. Lynn asks Cricket if she needs a lift. Paul says he'll take her (I want to know how she got there in the first place), he's got no last-minute details to see to. Paul thanks Lynn for all the extra work she's done in the last week. Lynn tells Paul good-bye, gets weepy-eyed and she and Paul hug. Paul and Cricket leave, Lynn cries.

 

 

Mari Jo's Office

 

Rick suggests Mari Jo is getting soft in her old age -- in the old days, she'd never have given up. Mari Jo agrees that she won't give up and thanks Rick for the pep talk. Mari Jo asks Rick, again, why he is in Genoa City. Rick won't tell and leaves wishing Mari Jo luck. They kiss.

 

 

Olivia's Office

 

Malcolm returns with coffee. Olivia is alone. Malcolm says he got the message -- he'll leave Stephanie alone. He goes on and on and on about not taking that crap -- he'll go find someone else. Olivia interrupts his tirade -- "You have a date." Malcolm, "Say, What?" Olivia got Stephanie to agree to go with Malcolm on New Year's Eve.

 

 

The Chancellor Mansion

 

Katherine can't imagine going to New York with Danny. Katherine won't go. Katherine wants to know if Danny is going back east for good. Danny doesn't know, he just wants to leave for a while. He'll keep in touch. Katherine asks another question -- are you running away -- what Rex would want to know. Danny says it's just too hard for him to be around, what with Cricket getting married and all. Going away will be good for him. Katherine comforts him and wishes him luck. They hug. Katherine is teary-eyed as they say good-bye. Danny leaves.

 

 

Luan's Apartment

 

Mai is sweeping the floor when Mari Jo shows up. Mari Jo asks about Christmas. Mari Jo asks for Luan. She wants to wish her a Happy New Year. Mai tells Mari Jo that Luan is in the restaurant. Mari Jo didn't see her. Mai goes to look in the kitchen. Mari Jo mutters she is very anxious to give her my best.

 

 

Phyllis' Apartment (which looks like a makeover of Nina's old place)

 

Joani (the nanny) is there and lets Danny in. Danny wants to see Phyllis. She isn't there and Joani doesn't know where she went or when she will be back. Danny decides to wait.

 

 

Outside Paul's Office

 

Cricket and Paul are walking on the sidewalk. They stop to hug and talk about the vows they are about to take. They kiss. Cricket is still trying to find out where they're going on their honeymoon. Paul won't tell. They stop to kiss again.

 

They walk in the street instead of on the sidewalk. Zoom in on a bright red tail light!!! Ominous music begins.

 

Paul realizes he left something in the office and gives Cricket the car keys (I still want to know how she got to the office in the first place). He tells her to get in the car and turn on the heater -- she's cold -- and he'll be right back. Cricket starts across the street. A car tire squeals. Paul looks. We see the car -- no headlights, just barely the top of someone's head is seen over the steering wheel. The lights come on. Cricket is blinded in white lights. Paul is yelling, "Chriiiiiiiiiiisssss!!!!" He runs to save her. He is ineptly unable to get Cricket out of the way and they are both hit and fall to the pavement on opposite sides of the speeding car. The car disappears and Cricket and Paul are lying on the pavement as passersby come up -- someone yells "Call 911."

Here's the 12/29/94 episode! :)

Question about Vivica A. Fox's character Stephanie Simmons.   In that Dec 94 vid, she is dressed like Olivia and appears to be a doctor. But when I google the character, it seems she was a nurse.

(It took a while to find it because it was in the newly-created newsgroup "rec.arts.tv.soaps.cbs" which had just split off from the old "rec.arts.tv.soaps".)

 

 

Wondering if you or anyone else knows... at some point in the 90s ( before the Soap Central recaps start) there are a lot of missing dates for Y&R and B&B recaps, and references are made to a list called "don't blink" (named after those great promos). Does anyone know if it's possible to find those recaps anywhere? It sounds like it was more of an email list (these rec.arts newsgroups apparently are both an email list AND like a message board?), so I don't know if that's possible short of someone having saved all those emails. I don't know if it was ever public, but if it would be a treasure trove. It's so funny reading back on these old updates when someone says they forgot to tape it on the VCR... little did they know almost 30 years later, we would be so disappointed, lol...

I use to have a link to an old French website that contained various English recaps of early to mid 90s episodes, I wonder if that website is still active as well. I'm shared a lot recaps I pulled off from there that are now buried in our Y&R Old Articles thread, might be time to see if I can dig it up again.

That was adorable. And I couldn't believe they sprang for a school bus and everything. I don't think they've ever done such a big character reveal for a child, but she turned out to be a legendary character.

I remember when Y&R all of a sudden starting showing male backsides. I only remember Paul and Brad having those scenes though.

Braeden won for his scenes with Adam/Victor Jr. 

 

VR probably should have won for this ep too. Looking back it’s just criminal that neither VR and TLW ever won for their powerful work in the 90’s by the Emmys. 


I like EB, but those scenes did not merit an Emmy. Don’t they submit scenes from two different shows? Because those scenes with young Adam don’t do it, at least not for me. They were sweet, but that’s about it.

Someone mentioned they may have also used the episode where Victor tore into Jack, Jill, and Keith for acquiring an unprofitable company for Nick to run without realizing just how deep

in the hole the company was. That episode aired a month earlier in Feb 1997.

Any chance someone have episodes from early December 1994, featuring the whole story of Rex Sterling's being shot and killed, 

Katherine and his kids saying goodbye to him at the hospital and his really-sad-funeral? I really want to see this, as I remember this story was very touching and sad. I really loved the Rex-Katherine's relationship!

Global update. Wednesday July 1 Global/Tuesday July 2 CBS - 5929, original air date August 7, 1996. I think this is Paul and Christine's first wedding.
