      • Jill Andre starred as "Dr. Sara MacIntyre Gantry Warner Blackford Thorpe #2" on "Guiding Light, The" (1967-1968), as "Sandra "Sandy" Wilson McGuire Hughes Garrison Thompson #2" on "As the World Turns" (1968), and as "Mrs. Cordell" on "Santa Barbara" (1985).

      • Mary Jo Catlett starred as "Pearl Gallagher" in "Diff'rent Strokes" (1982-1986) and as "Mary Finnegan" on "General Hospital" (1989-1990).

      • From this point on, at least for the remainder of the first season, the show became serialized and soap opera-ish, with each week's episode continuing from where the last left off. The show's creators, David Crane and Marta Kauffman, used this technique again two years later when they created "Friends."
