  • Bridget's Poem To Brooke

    "Out among the lullabies, Where you and I began... You touched my heart, and dried my eyes... You took me by the hand. And, thus, we traveled down the years... Past obstacle and strife... From child, to girl, to woman... Through the tangled web of life. But holding court with angels... We prevailed, the race was run... And never have I felt so close... To man...or God...or anyone."

    - Corinthians, Chapter 13.

My Aunt Fanny!

Come in, come in. Gaby: So, anyway, I can't wait to tell my mom all about Stanford. I mean, everything I saw and everything I did. She's going to be so happy. Is she done for the evening?

  • Joanna Johnson was hired at the very last minute. The role of Caroline Spencer was found to be extremely difficult to cast.

  • The original title for the show was Rags and it was planned to be set in Chicago. The setting was only changed to Los Angeles when it was felt it would be easier filming location scenes as the studio is based in Hollywood.

  • The character of Caroline Spencer was originally planned to be only a short-term role, but the writers fell in love with the character and made her a permanent fixture. It was only then that her father Bill Spencer was created and James Storm was hired.

  • Nancy Sloan had to go through eleven different auditions before she finally won the role of Katie Logan.

  • There is only a seven year age difference between John McCook and Ronn Moss, father and son, Eric and Ridge Forrester. Executive Producer, William J. Bell, actually had John dye parts of his hair grey to make him look older.

  • All the characters dressed as famous historical personalities for the ball: Grant as Napoleon, Brooke as Josephine, Thorne as Mark Antony, Taylor as Cleopatra, Enrique as Robin Hood, Claudia as Maid Marian, Eric as Henry VIII, Stephanie as his queen, Sally as Marie Antoinette, Clarke as Romeo, Lauren as Juliet, Hunter as Merlin, Ridge as Zorro, Rick as a page and Bridget as an angel.

  • Tilly mentions the name Dale to Stephanie. Dale is Becky's brother who was seen in one episode in 1999 when a pregnant Amber went to Furnace Creek to give birth to her baby.

  • Michael Tylo (Sherman) is the real life husband of Hunter Tylo (Taylor).

  • It is mentioned in this episode that Amber can't swim.

  • Amber tells CJ that the last time she heard from Tawny was in a postcard from a place named Harmony. Andrea Evans, who played Tawny, is now on the televison show Passions, which takes place in the town of Harmony.

  • Aaron Lustig (Tim) previously played the same character on "The Young and the Restless". This is another cross over between the two shows.

  • Blood types are no guarantee of paternity without an accompanying DNA test. Also, this episode states that Ridge is type B (+ or -), but in 1998, it was stated that Ridge was NOT type B (+ or -). Since the blood type for all the Forrester children was known by each of them when Rick needed a kidney transplant in 1998 (everyone matched back then BUT Rick, who was B- like Brooke), it's a clear continuity error that no one in the Forrester family has ever glommed on to the fact that Ridge's blood doesn't match.

  • Now let me get this straight? There is a tiny piece of apple pie in a huge pan - that it was obviously not baked in because there is not trace of the rest of the pie - and it was hot when it arrived at Ridge's office? Hmm something's not right here, what say?
