Sunday Surgery: Memory Lane





Just felt wrong not doing one! So... let's talk this past week's shows for a bit, shall we? What a walk down memory lane! I swear it was like wearing a comfy old shoe. Who did I see that I forgot existed? What story lines had I totally blanked out on (quite a few it seems!!) 

*NOTE:  I'm sitting here trying to decide if I should publish today. It seems trivial after a night like last night. My little city had a peaceful demonstration for 4 hours and then... well, all hell broke loose. To the good people; organizers, volunteers, first responders etc, thank you. With change comes chaos and with work and hope come healing. 
I hope the person reading this understands that I'm aware of the pain but think we all need a little ray of  sunshine as well. 






WUBSY HIGHLIGHTS (in no particular order)




DR. OBRECT: Always a winner!!

BRITT AND BRAD: Oh my gosh. I think this was one of the first times that I've seen true to life dialog and friends presented in such a way. Everything clicks. The jargon, the snark-- it was beautiful to behold. Eating that ice cream, laughing at people. I sure do miss them. 


Image

LITTLE SPENCER: Gah! First he's tiny, making Nik go to the Ball, then he grows a year and has a burned face. Being all Phantom of the Opera. Britt comes in and saves the day. I loved these two as well! Get rid of Sasha and get Kelly back!! She adds so much to the show.  Photo thx to @Robklopfanstein

NEDLY: Doing Meatloaf!!! Loved it. That is all.  (Photo tx to @NivFans)


FLUKE: Now, not my fave story BUT... one I had kind of shoved into the back of my head. So, when I saw Kiki and Michael giving him dirty looks I was like?? Why? OH! YES!! He was a dirty old man type and hit on Kiki! EESH. :Shudder: 

Image

NATHAN: Forgot how I missed he and Maxie. They worked. Levi? Oh holy hell..no. And come on, did you remember his real name was PETER??! 


LIZ AND RIC: That seems like eons ago, doesn't it? I mean like EONS. He got Hayden to pretend she was Mrs. Billy Miller? Wanted to marry Liz?  I need some memory pills. It did come flooding back but it took a bit!! 




SAMTRICK:  I remember watching Sam and Patrick, but I totally forgot about it until they showed up together!  I loved Sam's dress this year too. 


More of the same next week!  Things started out with 2014, moved to 2015 and soon we will be in '16. Great! More stuff I forgot! I wonder if filming doesn't resume soon, they'll air even older episodes. I'd love to see even more years. I know it's difficult because of song copyrights but please do it if you can! 

Did you watch the show this week? What were your highlights!?

  1. YAY! I didn't know there was going to be a Sunday Surgery or not! :)

    "DR. OBRECT: Always a winner!!"

    YESSSSSSSSSSSSSSS! :)

    "Get rid of Sasha and get Kelly back!! She adds so much to the show."

    I agree!!!!

    "FLUKE: Now, not my fave story BUT... one I had kind of shoved into the back of my head. So, when I saw Kiki and Michael giving him dirty looks I was like?? Why? OH! YES!! He was a dirty old man type and hit on Kiki! EESH. :Shudder:"

    Yeah I forgot all about Fluke hitting on StarKi! :)

    "Levi? Oh holy hell..no. And come on, did you remember his real name was PETER??!"

    ROFL! Levi was annoying and I hated him, until we found out who he REALLY was, and then he got interesting! Too bad Maxie had to kill him off. :(

    "LIZ AND RIC:"

    My babies!! My LiRic!! Why did the writers have to keep ruining them! :(

    "Did you watch the show this week? What were your highlights!?"

    My highlights were LiRic, Britch and Brad, Courtney and Spencer, Britch and Spencer.. Ned singing Meatloaf song! :)

  2. Good morning, Karen! I'm so glad you're continuing with the Sunday Surgery column, it's one of the simple pleasures these days and it is not trivial. I live on the upper west side in the city, and heard sirens the entire evening, feeling so sad for our country. You put it beautifully when you wrote "with change comes chaos and with work and hope come healing". Please don't stop writing.

    I'm loving the Nurses Ball repeats, I just wish they could air older episodes as well. Wouldn't it be great to see the very first one? I'd also love to see the 1997 episode where Stuart Damon actually sang "Ten Minutes Ago" from "Cinderella" (in which he played the Prince in 1965). I LOVED it as a kid, and just about flew off my chair when he sang it at the Nurses Ball!

    From this past week, I adored all the shows with young Spencer, Cameron and Emma. Adorable. Also loved the ghost return of Courtney with Spencer, was just as moved seeing it as I was the first time it aired. Anything with Dr. O is always a highlight, and totally agree about the Britt/Brad scenes, delicious! These repeats are working so much better than I anticipated, really enjoyable!

  3. My favorites from all this are Brad and Brit. What a realistic relationship they had.
    The 2014 NB was such a hoot! Fun to watch and remember. Moving along a year is when things started going south for me. I didn't remember some of it either. The Jake Doe/Jason/Drew story was starting. Sam and Patrick...enough said. I loved Sabrina and Carlos and still think those characters should not have ended. Especially Sabrina's ridiculous death.
    I too hope they can come up with a way to show some older shows.
    Thanks for our SS! We really do need it...more than ever. Enjoy your Sunday.

  4. Thanks for doing an SS this week. I agree that to some it may seem trivial in light of what's going on in this country right now, but we need a diversion I think. Watched very little of this week's shows because I have an aversion to reruns, but I did check it out from time to time. Even though I am not watching much, I will continue to check out this blog to get my "fix"...

  5. Just wanted to remind everyone that tomorrow's episode will be from May 25, 2016 nurses ball. Hey does anybody know where Michelle Latta is? I haven't seen her on here. I hope she is okay! Is she on twitter or facebook?

  6. Thanks everyone. Always love to come on here and read the blog. Even if not much happening. I watched clips of the Nurse's balls on U tube. I can watch what I want that way. Can also watch some of the OLD ones. Just short clips of the numbers I like.

    Thanks Karen. Be safe everyone

  7. Random thoughts:

    I think it's fine that you post. People need some levity in troubled times. Especially then.

    Totally agree about jettisoning Sasha in favor of bringing back another character. If not Britt, how about Hayden?

    Clearly, I am in the minority but I loved the "Fluke" storyline. It led into the big reveal about Luke's past and his split personality, in a way, deals with the rape issue with Laura.

    I want to see Felix help Lucas recover when GH returns, and lead to a romance between the two.

    So, I wonder if "GH" may decide to do a time jump when it returns? It could show the custody decision and a few other conclusions quickly in flashbacks, then show the fallout months later. It would clear the decks for some new storylines.

  8. I love Sunday Surgery and I'm so glad you posted. Thanks Karen!

    I enjoyed the Nurse's Balls this past week. I had forgotten how much I always liked LiRic and they always were eventually thrown under the bus. Rick and Becky had such good chemistry. (Seems Becky would have chemistry with a door, though! Lol!) It was great to see Original Nik, and Britt/Brad's relationship, they were a hoot. And of course Dr. O!

    Things I could have done without where Levi (gross!), Kung-Fu Courtney, and Sabrina. Never liked Sabrina and never will!

  9. I will just copy and paste what I said back then. Today’s episode is from May 25, 2016

    Jake and BobTodd: This was fantastic!!!!! Poor little Jake!!! But glad BobTodd helped him!!! When I looked at Nina, she was making me cry! She was crying! And then when I watched Jake and BobTodd sing, that was making me cry!!! Then I saw Liz and the look on her face. She is going to fall in love with BobTodd isn't she? :) Laura saw her face too!!! BobTodd wins the line of the day!!!

    BobTodd: Quack quack quack quack quack quack.

    ROFL! Awwwww. :)

    The chit chatter:

    Lulu: Oh nuts. She didn't get a haircut. Crap. How disappointing.

    June 17th: September 14, 2015: Sonny is in critical condition after being shot. Sitting vigil in the hospital chapel, Carly reads the vows he wrote for her, and remembers their ups and downs.

    Sonny's home: PILLY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! YAY! :)

    Sonny and Michael:

    Sonny: Michael! I am NOT going to the nurses ball!!!!

    Pilly: Shut up Sonny.

    Michael: But dad.

    Sonny: NO! I am staying home and being a big baby! Now leave me alone and let me wallow in self pity.

    Sonny and Maddox:

    Sonny: Duhhhh what is that in the bottle?

    Maddox: A pill?

    Sonny: Uh duhhh no it doesn't taste like it!!!

    Maddox: I can figure it out for you.

    Sonny: Duh thanks!!!

    Nurses ball/red carpet:

    Mario Lopez: Yum!!!

    Piffy and Felix: Piffy where is Milo? Felix where is your boyfriend? He is not covering the red carpet this year? Why isn't he with you then?!

    Lulu:: What the hell is that dress? Yikes!!!

    Paint, her cupcakes, and Wall: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

    Scotty: Lucy she does like to squeeze them.

    ROFL!

    Nurses ball:

    Song, You are not alone anymore: Damn it!!! Everytime tears!!! :'(

    Emma, Charlie, and Jake: Yeah Joss would look way too old to be in that group! ROFLMAOPMP!

    V.C. and Nina: They are looking at each other! Looks like she is going to forgive him! Oh wait Anna shows up.. Oh wait nevermind! Looks like Nina changed her mind!
