  1. "1981: Kelly confronts Iva about her lies."

    Hahaha..she's more Iva to me than Nola, too.

  2. That is not the first time I've done that! Love, love, love those scenes. I was 11 years old when they aired and totally remember rushing home from school to see them.

  3. Ahhhh the good old days of real human drama, before multiple evil plastic surgery look-a-likes ran amok in little soap towns.

  4. I would to see more clips of John Wesley Shipp's role as AMC's Carter, since I did not his performances as that character.
