Eve Guthrie and Ed Bauer’s Engagement Party

Michelle toasting Ed and Eve

Michelle toasting Ed and Eve

This episode aired –  October 24, 1994.

Several stories going on today and most of them aren’t part of the party umbrella. Matt is accused of some crimes and can’t tell where he was because he and Vanessa were having a secret affair.

Michelle gives a toast. Sadly those good feelings she’s talking about won’t arrive until 1999.

“So I want to make a toast to Ed and Eve, my dad and to all those good feelings our family is going to have.”

Someone spiked Ed’s drink. As a recovering alcoholic this was a terrible thing. Alan made an entrance to announce his return to Springfield. Dr. Bauer seems a bit formal for the brother of his ex-father-in-law whose been his neighbor for a good 20 years. This does bring up something I don’t get. They always kept all this alcohol around Ed where it would be easy to slip or make a mistake. While do they do that?

Commercial break after opening credits contains an ad for the Roger Thorpe videotape. This and Reva’s counterpart were the only authorized sales of Guiding Light footage until the Soap Classics releases. Watch it here:

Wow! I would have said if Ed had a problem with Alan it would have traced back to his destruction of Hope rather than that stupid affair that Alan had with Rita while she was involved with Ed – they weren’t all that into each other anyway. Even

For some reason soap hopping soap star Marcy Walker failed to click as Tangie (maybe it was the stupid name?). This was their latest hail Mary pass they are in the early stages of an Alan-Michael-Tangie-Alan triangle. It’s really too bad because Alan-Michael truly believed in Alan and was truly working towards a positive relationship and Alan pulls this.

Really for as smart as they normally play Matt, if he said he’d been to the movies, he should have picked one currently playing at a local movie theater. I think Matt is waiting for Vanessa to step up, but she doesn’t. Gentlemanly Matt doesn’t out her.

Time to get sick over Ed and Eve while he pretends she’s his only true love who has “changed me so completely. You’ve changed me and I can’t ever go back to what I was. I am a complete mess without you.”

The back of Blake’s dress reminds me of a peace sign without the circle. Oh, Eleni you haven’t been to very many parties at the Country Club if you think that this party breakup is anything but typical. No party ever goes well there.

12:00 in another great chance to see Ross-Ed as best friends rather than just hear that they are. “a couple of swallows” wouldn’t an alcoholic know after it hit his tongue? I am proud of Ed to want to go to an AA meeting. I think this might be his biggest hero moment ever. Really don’t understand Ed’s extreme reaction to Alan’s very existence. It wasn’t like this when Alan left.

I think Matt’s story is stupid. He was being stupid if he didn’t know that someone “influential in that town” was married. Plus, his father’s sister was had a brother-in-law (Mike Bauer) who is one of the top lawyers in the country. Wouldn’t asking for help make much sense? Plus, why not cop to being with a woman without naming who. Once that much came out he might as well. So Matt saved Marina’s life too? Maybe she was injured in some of these “life savings” that could be what’s wrong with her later.

“I haven’t had a chance to tell Eve about the drink yet.” – Yes, Ed you were only completely alone talking about what had just happening in a semi-private hallway.

This is so typical Blake. “You know I can’t believe that Eve treats him for a gun shot wound and in matter of days he manages to drag his sorry but out of bed and come over here and crash MY party.”

Ross: “Last thing I need is for you to turn into Paul Revere and go through the town of Springfield warning all the good folks.”

Actually I do agree Alan didn’t meant to “hurt” Blake he meant to stop Phillip from marrying her at all costs.

Fletch does have some good lines “while the caviar is hitting the fan.”

I’m really sorry Alan showed up at Ed’s party. It was truly typical Alan, but it hurt Ed and I don’t think A-M would have stood by like that. While A-M wanted to support his father, he wouldn’t have hurt his Uncle Ed like that.
