1966: On Another World, at the dance, Dr. Joe Bernardi (Joe Bennett) encouraged Lee Randolph (Gaye Huston) to see the man underneath the doctor, then discouraged her from speaking to Dr. Farmer about John. He wouldn't let her use his medical opinion to invalidate Pat's unease over Mike visiting John with business. After Mike Bauer (Gary Pillar) left, John laughed and said Pat should be delighted if Lee were interested in both Mike and Joe, since one was a lawyer and the other a doctor. Mike tensed up when Emily mentioned Lee, then revealed Pat had sort of posted an "off limits" sign tonight on Lee. After a heap of friendly praise from Lee, Joe took her hand and made her close her eyes as he explained his true feelings. Embarrassed, Lee considered him just a friend, then denied that she had given "serious looks" at Mike.
