    Kudos to the writers. All storylines combined into one amazing episode, each in their own way. You just gotta love this show. It's amazing how much the show improved as opposed to last year.



    The Restless Style party was, of course, the highlight of the episode. The crowd of people including the much needed Ashley Abbott and the arrival of Felicia Forrester was a huge thing for this episode, combined with the usual couples. I liked Phyllis' reactions during the episode, she's just so original. Plus, this might be the first time I actually liked the interactions between Danny, Daniel and Phyllis. Will there be something more done about this or will Danny leave? I have no idea.



    There were a lot of fillers in this episode, but at least we got to see them. There isn't much purpose for Nikki currently (beside the Jabot storyline) and her boring relationship with David needs to end soon. Brad is also there being the usual Bradley, and J.T., as always, did almost nothing but support his perfect wife and promote his happy family. Also, Lily did her model thing, but I didn't care for it at all. However I need to say once again that Chloe somehow made her scene tolerable. Cane also didn't do anything, as well as Neil. Karen being absent is also quite intriguing. Will she be written off because she's another Latham leftover, or is it only a scheduling conflict? Adam was only a filler in this one.



    The Katherine and Jill scenes were fine, and I'm glad we got to see Esther yet again. The previous 5-6 episodes had 3 appearances of Esther. Is this finally the Y&R that we all loved and want back? I certainly hope so. The conflict between Felicia and Amber was mellow, but at least they talked. I love it when the past of a character is remembered. This brings me back to the fact that David Chow never made a reaction to Jana's release from prison. How could the writers forget that?



    And of course, there's the usual Gloria storyline. I loved it. The scene with Gloria, Kevin and Jana was hilarious. Just perfect. Kevin's remarks were funny while Gloria was trembling like a little girl. Where were Michael and Lauren? I guess we'll see them later. Jeff was also good, and Alistair also did his part. I can't wait to see more. And of course, the ending was brilliant. Sabrina managed to convince Victor to attend the party, and I can already imagine the fireworks in the upcoming episode. It was quite an amazing episode. Probably the best one in March.moreless

    • Alistair (To Gloria, who had just collapsed): Oh, my dear! I didn't mean to frighten you.
      Jeff: What are you still doing here?
      Alistair: But she-- she's so fragile.
      Jeff: Fragile? She's a cruise missile in stilettos.

    • Jeff: So... how goes communing with the departed?
      Gloria: The house is haunted.
      Jeff: Terrific. When do we move?
      Gloria: We don't move. Because it's not about the house, it's about you.
      Jeff: Me?
      Gloria: Yes. John is after you because he can't stand the thought of me being hurt. But, Jeffrey?
      Jeff: Hmm?
      Gloria: If I can convince John that I'm... falling in love with you...
      Jeff: Why didn't I think of that? Should we go upstairs and you know, give him a little show?

    • Sharon: I have to get back to the party.
      Brad: Yeah. I wish you luck.
      Sharon: Do you? Do you really? Or are you secretly wishing we fail?
      Brad: I would never wish you to fail, Sharon. Jack, on the other hand, I wouldn't mind seeing sink like the Titanic.

    • Amber: 30 minutes driving around just to find parking while we could've used valet.
      Daniel: Well, you know, I'm not gonna pay some guy $10 to put a dent in my door and leave my car smelling like cigarette smoke. No, thank you. Valet is for the rich.
      Amber: We'd be rich if it weren't for you, so...
      Daniel: That's cute. Yeah, why don't we, uh, go walk around the room and flirt?

    • Jana: I saw him.
      Kevin: It is time for a reality check. We're gonna go outside, we're gonna look at all the cute little squirrels and realize that none of them are named John.

    • Kevin: Face it, mom, the house is spiritually bankrupt. No ghosts.
      Gloria: Shh. Now how can you say that? I feel something right here.
      Kevin: Heartburn? Acid reflux?
      Gloria: Why are you being so horrible?
      Kevin: Because I have a functional I.Q. And for the record, I don't believe in bigfoot or sasquatch, either.

    • Kevin: Could we hurry this along? I was hoping we could catch a midnight Rocky Horror.
      Gloria: Kevin.
      Kevin: Tales from the crypt? Dawn of the dead?
      (Jana presses his hand)

    • Gloria: I can almost sense John's presence.
      Jana: Kev, will you hit the lights?
      Kevin: The poltergeists aren't gonna trip in the dark?
