"What did she do beside talk to herself?" Jamey asks in a huff.
"Thank you Jamey for sucking just enough for me to squeeze through!" Eden blasts back.
Andrew shares how many takes it took for his pal Greg Rikaart (Kevin, The Young and the Restless) to get the memorable m asturbation scene for his SOS-nominated IB guest stint down pat. Is Greg a method actor?
Eden is thrilled when two of her leading ladies, Elizabeth Hendrickson (ex-Frankie/Maggie, AMC; Chloe; Y&R; Liz, IB) and Tamara Braun, aka Jamey's pick for the best Carly Corinthos EVER!! (Oh yeah, and she now plays Reese on AMC) are both presented SOS awards, but which one thrills Eden more? Should Andrew be worried? More important, should BAM fans spearhead a Rianca Kiss Ban?
Later in the episode, Eden speaks poignantly about All My Children and One Life to Live creator Agnes Nixon when she accepts the Irna Phillips Spirit Award For Outstanding Contribution To The Serial Art Form on behalf of the television legend. She also relays fond memories of the late Eileen Herlie, whose Myrtle Fairgate served as a surrogate grandmother to Binks and the rest of Pine Valley—except for Luke's beloved Greenlee (Rebecca Budig).
Nelson himself speaks on behalf of the late Beverlee McKinsey (Iris, Another World/Texas; Alexandra, Guiding Light) whom TVG Canada awarded one of two Douglas Marland Memorial Awards. The other accolade went to the late James E. Reilly (legendary head writer of Days of Our Lives and creator of Passions). Canada's biggest cheerleader (Yeah, yeah, yeah we get it, their syrup is better than ours and they produced Jennifer Finigan, big whoop! We lay claim to Britney Spears bitches... real and imagined!) asks Jamey to talk about the prolific writer's impact on the genre. This episode is a Must-Hear for soap fans young and old.
