That's a very real possibility. After all, I saw the scene in the 70s as a child. All I do remember for sure is Lorie angrily slamming the piano key cover on Leslie's fingers while she was playing. I don't remember anyone else in the scene. If I remember correctly, Lorie was yelling at Leslie and Leslie was playing the piano louder to drown her out and that's when Lorie slammed the covering on her fingers. The only thing that makes me think it wasn't a fantasy and the door scenario is wrong is the fact that I have the episode where Leslie is playing her first concert after the incident and somebody remarks about how good it was that her fingers healed in time. Leslie gives Lorie a knowing look and Lorie looks very guilty. If it had been an accident, I don't get where the accusatory look and the guilty look would come into play. I also think I would remember the door scene since I remember the piano key covering scene. Both would be impressionable and I was watching every day at that time. Even though i'm going on a very old memory, my gut tells me that synopsis above is wrong. I've noticed that in other synopses over the years. Things are just wrong sometimes. And no, it wasn't explained away as an accident. Lorie was remorseful and Leslie forgave her but it was clearly no accident. I think Leslie told others it was an accident to let Lorie off the hook. My sister also remembers the piano key covering scene and doesn't remember a door scene.

Thanks a lot for your memories ! If only we could see the episodes we would know.

Hey do you ever remember seeing a scene between Lorie and jill ever physically fighting in the hospital room when Lorie caught jill checking in on Stuart? I remember hearing the episode through audio on YouTube and it sounded like they had to be separated lol i would love to see that scene and wouldn't that technically be the first y&r girl fight I always thought the first y&r girl fight was Katherine and jill.

Laurie arrives at the Brooks home as Jill  is performing a tracheotomy on  Mr. Brooks. She screams  “What are you doing?” and tries to pull Jill away from Stuart. Snapper is on the telephone giving instructions.

There was a later hospital scene where Stuart is asked questions to check brain damage. One was his year of birth which he said 1927.

 

There was also a scene following  this where Ma Foster thanks Jill for saving his life. Jill is on her hands and knees trying to clean the blood off the carpet.

No, I don't remember that. This was pre VCR and I was a kid going to school so if it didn't happen in the summertime I probably didn't see it. I'm actually amazed at the things I do remember. Even things that didn't happen in the summertime. I'm thinking either I never went to school or they used a lot of flashbacks back then.

Lorie Brooks had a plan to help Mark Henderson, who admitted that he couldn’t be intimate with any woman because his young bride died in his arms on their wedding night. Since then he had dated only very young girls so that he wouldn’t have to face his problem. Lorie used sensitivity therapy: drawing articles of different texture across his bare back to make him more aware of his sense of touch.

 

 

Wow. That's just...strange. On so many levels.

1975 was a huge year for soaps with Jennifer falling into the glass, Dobson's taking over GL, Depriest making LOL sound interesting to view, Ryan's Hope debuts, Philip dies on y & r, etc.

 

 

What happened with Jennifer falling into the glass. I can't find anything about that but it sounds kind of familiar.

It was on Search For Tomorrow. Jennifer was played by Morgan Fairchild and it happened in July 1975.

Did Kay interact with Peggy Brooks during the story with Joann Curtis ? I would assumed Kay would have known Chris Brooks Foster since she was married to Snapper. 

I have been trying to figure that out for the longest time, cause peggy was friends with the Joann character so i would assume they must have all interacted lol, Chris Brooks was more seperated then Lorie,leslie and Peggy if im correct

Oh ok yes that's the same stuff i heard, I just thought maybe they kinda scuffled abit by the way it sounded. Do you remember who separated them?

Re GL

Interesting to see what the Dobsons do upon arrival.

It seems that Ken and Janet were already on the way out under Cenedella.

That left room for the Dobsons to bring in (so far)  Andy Norris, Hope Bauer, Chad Richards and Ann Jeffers.

2 newbies and 2 characters tied to established families.

At this point Seems that Chad will provide story for Leslie and Hope. Andy will be a troublemaker, too soon to see what their plans for Ann were.

It's interesting seeing the Dobson's start off on GL, knowing they would eventually kill off maybe one (or two) of GL's popular characters that they're currently writing for. It always make me wonder what GL's canvas would've been like without those departures.

 

Did Cenedella have any really successful writing stints? On these summaries he's getting passed around from soap to soap, but I found his time on The Doctors to be boring and uninspired. He attempted to tackle social issues but it made it a boring PSA in my opinion. Wasn't he the writer who wrote AW before Lemay took over in the 70s?

He was writing AW in 1970 and even wrote Somerset at the same time when the show premiered.

Through this, we also get to observe The Dobson’s work pre-Allen Potter coming on as EP of GL and Gordon Russel’s work at OLTL pre-Joseph Stuart as EP.

 

It will be interesting to observer the differences in story content once these highly influential EP’s come aboard.

Mary's death and its aftermath on AMC had to be heartbreaking for viewers at the time. She had been written as so pure and faultless from her first appearance, even moreso than Tara, and to have her brutally gunned down in her own home as a child watches - yikes. I never knew they kept her on as a "vision" in the months following.
