Did anyone catch Y&R's nod to Bill Bell?
Sooo MAB and co have done plenty of things I"m sure had Bill Bell rolling over in his grave, but yesterday's show (thursday) did something really subtle (at least it was subtle to me)
They had Jeffrey Bardwell coming to Genoa City with amnesia, in a truck with a stranger he'd thumbed a ride with. This was the VERY FIRST SCENE of The Young and the Restless in 1973. Brad Elliott was in a truck thumbing a ride after having been hijacked and badly beaten. He arrives in Genoa City and goes to Pierre's for food and after eating, says he can't pay the food, until someone (I think his name was Stuart Brooks) arrives and pays for the meal. YESTERDAY, Jeffrey was in a truck (same camera angles and everything) riding to Genoa City with some guy, he has amnesia, and he tells the guy that his name is Brad Elliott or something (or maybe I heard wrong)...and then he goes to Crimson Lights, eats, and then says he can't pay for the food. Then Jill, the longest running character on Y&R, shows up and pays for his food.
I dont' like a good majority of what MAB has done on Y&R in the last couple of years, but I thought that was kind of cute and a nice little nod to history that only the Y&R junkies would "get"....did anyone else catch this and recognize the parallels? LOL
