Brochure from 1985

September 26, 2018

I got ahold of this publicity brochure from 1985. It does a fairly good job of summing up the story of Guiding Light and includes a “family tree” for current characters and a cast list.

Is Carmen Mr Big Part 1 Fri Sept 28 and Wed Oct 3 2001

September 25, 2018

Check out my latest episode guide.

Fri., Sept. 28, 2001 – At Company: Danny tells Carmen that he knows she is behind this. Carmen tells him that she is in trouble with the law and would never do anything to mess up her chances. Danny thinks she wants revenge on him for choosing a life with Michelle over her. Frank comes in and tells Carmen that she is a free woman and removes her tracking devise. Danny can’t believe it. Danny: “Frank, what the hell?” and asks Frank what is going on. He tells him that he doesn’t know yet. Carmen tells Danny that she is free because of God. Carmen: “Father Ray promised me if I turned over a new leaf, if I changed, that God would give me another chance and it happened….It’s NOT bull. It’s NOT an act.”  She tells him about her work with Ray and how she prayed for another chance. He doesn’t buy it. He thinks she offered him up to the prosecution. Frank gets off the phone and tells Danny that Johnny Machado and his group were busted with a mystery witness. Carmen denies that she is the witness and tells them that she has a lot to live for and she is going to go enjoy her new found freedom. After she leaves, Danny says he thought Carmen sold him out but he doesn’t know what to think now. He thinks the Machado bust is a smokescreen and that Johnny probably owes Carmen a favor. Carmen of course will have amnesia when it comes to the trial. Frank tells Danny they will go ahead with their original plan. Outside Company, Carmen makes a call and tells someone that she thinks Danny has fallen for her plan.

 

Wed., Oct. 3, 2001 – Frank and Danny meet and discuss the sting operation to trap whoever is behind Carlos’ ultimatum. Danny tells Frank he is still convinced that Carmen is behind it. Danny later meets with Carlos and tells him that he has decided not to steal the money. He tells Carlos that he knows that Carmen is behind the extortion and he is calling his bluff. Carlos tells Danny that he needs to think about his family. Danny says he IS thinking about his family and that is why he won’t do it. Carlos tells him that he is afraid for him. After his meeting with Danny, Carlos talks to Carmen. He tells her that Danny knows that she is behind the order and that Danny won’t steal the money. Carmen says that Danny is a stupid boy and that he must learn the extent of her power. Later, outside Company, Danny talks to Michelle and tells her that the sting is off for now. He tells her that he will wait for her at Company. As he goes in, a mysterious man in a leather jacket watches him and then follows him in.

My Comments: When Carmen shows up at Company that’s the best she’s looked in ages that’s really a beautiful blouse. Now Danny does show some smarts about figuring out it well maybe Carmen, but he doesn’t follow up. He goes along with the plan anyway. Why? I’m very sorry we don’t have much of the stuff from this description. It’s important for the Danny-Carmen byplay, the Frank/Danny relationship, and giving you a chance to see if Carmen is Mr. Big because frankly it doesn’t make sense if she is or if she isn’t and while I know the solution from the end of the storyline, I’m still not really sure exactly how much of this was a set, how much was Carmen, and if there really was someone else concerned. They never really explain any of it and it makes no sense.

Couple Codes Update September 2018

September 5, 2018

Here’s my latest update on creating a list of couple code aka smoosh names aka the names people create for couples by combing their names. For example Manny is Michelle Bauer Santos and Danny Santos and Marony is Marah Lewis and Tony Santos. I’ve posted the list from other soaps before, but I’ve been trying to post quarterly updates to help get suggestions who I’ve missed. I’ve added more since last time, but please check for your favorites (or even the not so favorite couples you can remember). I’m a long way from having all of them for all soaps here. I think I have finally collected most of the Guiding Light couple codes, but I’m adding those below and am now branching out to collect other soaps. The shows and the names are listed in alphabetical order. All couples are eligible to be included if they are on a daytime soap opera and have a commonly used nickname or code.  I threw a few primetime ones on at the bottom too, just for fun. This list is by no means complete at this point, but I found with my work with the Guiding Light list that people tend to respond more after they see what you have.

I also have reserved a spot on the the list for anyone with a nickname that might be confused with a couple code. For example, on the Guiding Light list I’ve included Cleva for Clone Reva. So here are the couples whose name I’ve remember or had suggested to me so far. If you spot I’m missing one from any daytime soap, please let me know on Facebook, Twitter, in the comments below or by e-mailing me at Robansuefarm@hotmail.com

Rewatch the End

September 4, 2018

Every year about this time I want to rewatch the last two weeks of Guiding Light. They came out on DVD and this year I remembered to watch along. Today I watched the 1st episode. I hope that I’ll be able to watch them all as I go. I probably won’t be able to do it at the same time every night, but I’ll be shooting for the evening and you can follow along at the hashtag #GuidingLightFinale.

A League of Their Own Essay 14

August 29, 2018

Republisher’s Note: Again a very accurate point about Danny and Michelle. They DO stand in a league of their own. They ARE smarter, more spiritual, and more passionate people than Jesse and Drew. I have to say sadly with the wisdom of foreknowledge that no, we don’t get to see Michelle use it with Danny very soon at this point. We do get treated to Michelle not really being excited about being with Jesse, Michelle jealous about Danny, and Michelle not being able to get Danny out of her head when Jesse kisses her. Then we get a break. (I’d really like to know if Joie had a vacation or something because it does seem like it wouldn’t really be necessary to have her out of time all that long.) During the break we do learn more about Danny though. So it’s worth it. Flashing back to the first year of my blog I compare Danny and Michelle.

From Rustle of the Sheets

Danny and Michelle at Mall

Essay #14


“A League of Their Own”
“(Following the Drew/Danny “Connection”)
By BettyM — posted on the Mannyac Board.

While Danny and Michelle seem evenly matched, intellectually, spiritually, etc, … come on, now — are either Drew or poor Jesse in their league?

I just don’t see Drew inspiring any deep passion in Danny like Michelle can! That’s the real deal. Michelle gets under Danny’s skin, because he respects her, he knows she’s not just any girl, and thinks she’s special as a human being, the type he wants to father his children; he thinks she’s classy! She is; but he doesn’t realize they’re in the same league, actually.

Think back to how Danny, when he first showed up, and who has been with many girls, zoomed in on Michelle, initially, and not Drew. Remember those early scenes. Drew put on that slutty red dress to distract him; but he honed in on Michelle. Despite Drew’s showiness, he wasn’t blown away; he acknowledged Drew, but I clearly got the impression he saw her like any other of the pretty sloodges he’s been with.

The fact of the matter is that Drew is simply not in Michelle’s/Danny’s league, just as Jesse isn’t. I think that’s why Michelle gets under Danny’s skin! Because of what she is, she hurts; other women do not! There’s simply no challenge for him, intellectually, spiritually, or otherwise with Drew! She’s nothing but a sloodgey, hootch diversion; but Michelle drives him up the wall. Ditto with Jesse for Michelle. I think that same spiritual and intellectual challenge is what gets under Michelle’s skin re Danny, although her Bauerness makes her loathe to face it.

Danny never gave Drew a second look before this. It’s always been about her throwing on a slutty red dress, and throwing it at him. Right? And if my brother can see this; it must be there. Back to that red dress issue — like I said before, I get the distinct impression Paul Rauch, who is very astute, always throws Drew in a showy red dress — twice — around Danny, because that devil knows … that it is Joie Lenz’s Michelle who is the sexy one.

I believe that devil, Rauch, could see that Lenz, when she played the Clone Reva, has this sort of steamy, feisty sexuality. It works for the show, in that, I do believe it is part of the whole package that has Danny floored with Michelle. That it Joie Lenz has is there with Michelle, as it was with Cleva, although wrapped in Bauer dignity; but it’s there! Now, here’s my point …. Will Michelle use it? I believe Rauch knows, the devil, that Jesse and Drew, although surfacely attractive as individuals, simply do not have that it, but Michelle has it; as does Danny.

That is why I think the guys always have gone for Michelle … because she’s truly the sexy one and appealing one, but Michelle seems to underplay it in her Bauer girl goodness. Certainly she has it on Danny — because all she has to do is cuddle to him, and he melts, which I’m sure he hates!

I think Michelle has even picked up that she has this power, and has used it to advantage. I think even the Drew stuff is Danny’s denial that he knows Michelle turns him inside out!

Michelle, although sexy, has been acting pretty demure, as befitting a Bauer lady — but she can be a clever, feisty, little b*tch, as Carmen learned, when she wants to be … so are we gonna see Michelle using some of her it, soon, on Danny, as she has before?

My Wild Guess About What Will Happen Next Essay 13

August 23, 2018

Republisher’s Note: Comment set right after D/D the night when Danny slept with Drew. The episode post is rightly pointing out the much more important “Angel of Mine” dance. There is an issue with the audio on the sequence. I have a back up, but haven’t posted about it. As it is, watch these episodes. Although the guess isn’t right as a whole, her feeling about Ben moving in on Carmen signalling a continued Carmen/Danny/Michelle dynamic was spot on. I think the Manny fighting for financial control would have been a nice story. I vote for anything that didn’t tip Carmen over into actual violence against Michelle so the sniping could continue. Like Ed-Roger in later years, not like their early years.

From Rustle of the Sheets

“My Wild Guess About What Will Happen Next …”
“(Following the Drew/Danny “Connection”)
By Rhonda — posted on the Mannyac Board.

I know a lot of you are concerned about Drew getting pregnant and Michelle and Jesse reuniting, but I’m not, and here’s why. In a word, Ben. Ben’s addition to this storyline signals to me that the writers intend to keep the focus on the Carmen/Danny/Michelle dynamic, and have no intention of shifting the focus to Danny/Drew or Jesse/Michelle. Messe can’t happen unless Carmen is no longer a threat to Michelle, and even if Danny has the upper hand right now, his mother is still a threat, and he knows that and so does Michelle. Therefore, no Messe reunion and no annulment.

Danny may offer Michelle an annulment once he’s sure she’s safe, but he’s not going to give her one now. It’s too risky. So, what will Danny offer to Michelle? My guess is that he’s going to make her a player by giving her half of everything he owns, and that will include a hefty chunk of the Santos’ only legitimately run business.

What if Carmen gave Danny one of the family businesses as a graduation present? Danny gives Michelle the lion’s share of his business, she wills it to Rick if she dies, and Carmen’s hands are tied. Danny might even promise Michelle an annulment as well, but before he can follow through on it Carmen fights back with Ben, and she winds up taking Manny to court to keep the business in the family. That way Manny could spend the next few months at the Bauers battling Carmen while growing closer.

Like I said in the beginning though, this is just a guess, and it’s coming from a someone who sees no need for a Messe reunion so it may just be wishful thinking on my part.

This might also explain the current twist in Manny’s storyline with Michelle betraying Danny, and Danny sleeping with Drew. If Manny will be at the Bauers (a safe, loving environment) working together, and growing closer, then they’ll need internal conflicts to keep them apart, and now both will have them.

Manny Ask Frank for Help Sept 26 27 2001

August 14, 2018

Check out my latest episode guide.

Wed., Sept. 26, 2001 – Danny and Michelle continue to talk about the $25 million extortion in Danny’s office with the scrambler on. Danny talks about how frustrated he is that he’s still stuck in his family’s violent, criminal life and that he still hasn’t come through for Michelle to get her the life she wants. Danny doesn’t know what to do about the offer. Michelle says if they only knew who was behind the extortion they could plan better. Danny reminds her that he only has 12 hours left to decide. Michelle tells him they have no choice; he should call Carlos and tell him that he will do it.

Thurs., Sept. 27, 2001 – At Company: Michelle and Danny are taking about Carlos and the 25 million. Frank comes in to meet them. Frank reminds Danny that in his last effort to get to Michelle Danny had punched Frank out and that if Danny pulled that again he’d punch him back. (Frank had already punched him back to even them up at the party celebrating Danny being declared innocent.) They tell Frank that Danny is going to have to take the cash from Spaulding and they need his help. Frank points out that David had put in for a transfer after he played fast and loose with the rules to help Danny. He wasn’t sure that he should get involved with them again. They discuss the plan and Frank tells them he will talk it over with his boss. Michelle and Danny think it may be best to keep it between the three of them. Frank is reluctant but finally agrees. Danny tells him it is the only way they will be able to flush out the person behind the blackmail without putting them in more danger if someone knew and the mob found out Danny was lying. Frank leaves and Danny tells Michelle that she and Robbie need to leave town. Michelle gets mad and tells him that he isn’t going to shut her out. Danny tells her that he knows better than to try that and just wants her to go to New York City to pick up a few pieces of high tech equipment they will need. A friend of his from college had a tech security business in New York and could get what they need. Michelle agrees and says she’ll visit Drew and Jesse as a cover. Michelle kisses Danny and goes home to check on the baby. Danny thinks to himself a moment and knows who is behind the whole mess. Carmen comes in to meet with Danny. He tells her that he knows she is behind the extortion deal and asks her what she has on Carlos to make him do her bidding for her.

My Comments:
I think I’ve been pretty clear that I think the writers came to the mob well too many times. They really didn’t need Danny involved with the current Tony and Marony storyline and THIS would be the perfect time to transition them to being more involved with the other storylines. Danny could be dancing at the edge of legality and struggling with it at Spaulding and there would be PLENTY of good juicy story with the bad boy angle right there. It would be good for the soap too because Manny really are the nexus of connections between a lot of characters. Also, the soap still hada divided cast with characters marooned in San Cristobal so to further divide the cast is a ridiculously bad plan. BUT it’s what they did. Wait in Danny’s secure office they needed a scrambler, but in public at Company is fine? That said I’m glad they kept the connection between Manny and Frank. It’s been there since the beginning and gotten stronger over time. Also, them telling the police and turning to Frank for help at least puts a different slant on the mob angle this time. Frank always did have a soft spot for Michelle long before she got involved with Danny. At this point David Grant was no loss. The character had previously been pretty cool, but when they brought him back it was really without a throughline and he just flopped around from one storyline to the next. His last romance broke up and he left town. The fixed cars line was because Frank was a mechanic until he became a private eye in a three way partnership with David and Blake Marler after that he went into the police force and stayed there for the rest of the run of the show. My favorite part of this storyline is that after the weak attempt of Danny’s to keep Michelle out of it they are pretty much equal partners the rest of the way through.

August 7th is National Lighthouse Day

August 7, 2018
Lighthouse Cookie Cutter

Lighthouse Cookie Cutter

There are many dates that Guiding Light fans celebrate during the year. There is the anniversary of the beginning of Guiding Light, Irma Phillips birthday, the sad days of cancellation announcement and the final episode, but one that I think should be included is National Lighthouse Day which happens every August 7th. It’s intended to celebrate real lighthouses that help keep the seas and major lakes safe, but I think Guiding Light fans can claim it as our own.

Shout Out to a Quola Fan

I’d also like to do a shout out to my favorite cousin who helps me keep the light shining. She wrote this great piece on Quola. She is celebrating a special day this week so send her positive thoughts today!

Celebrate and Learn about the Day

Be sure to look for all the lighthouses that will show up over social media and try to identify the ones that most look like the lighthouses used on Guiding Light.

Here at GLManny we have made it an annual celebration since 2012. Check out my previous Lighthouse Day posts here:

Collecting Lighthouses

Celebrate by looking back on some of my previous lighthouse collecting posts. I have continued to add to my lighthouse collection even though I haven’t gotten reports done. I hope to do some more of these soon since I think they are fun and I hope you do too.

Couple Codes Update Aug 2018

August 1, 2018

Here’s my latest update on creating a list of couple code aka smoosh names aka the names people create for couples by combing their names. For example Manny is Michelle Bauer Santos and Danny Santos and Marony is Marah Lewis and Tony Santos. I’ve posted the list from other soaps before, but I’ve been trying to post quarterly updates to help get suggestions who I’ve missed. I’ve added more since last time, but please check for your favorites (or even the not so favorite couples you can remember). I’m a long way from having all of them for all soaps here. I think I have finally collected most of the Guiding Light couple codes, but I’m adding those below and am now branching out to collect other soaps. The shows and the names are listed in alphabetical order. All couples are eligible to be included if they are on a daytime soap opera and have a commonly used nickname or code.  I threw a few primetime ones on at the bottom too, just for fun. This list is by no means complete at this point, but I found with my work with the Guiding Light list that people tend to respond more after they see what you have.

I also have reserved a spot on the the list for anyone with a nickname that might be confused with a couple code. For example, on the Guiding Light list I’ve included Cleva for Clone Reva. So here are the couples whose name I’ve remember or had suggested to me so far. If you spot I’m missing one from any daytime soap, please let me know on Facebook, Twitter, in the comments below or by e-mailing me at Robansuefarm@hotmail.com
