Last year I found a neighbor's purse under trees in my yard; it had been stolen five years before. It was disintegrating, and despite being zipped closed, had dirt and debris inside. No way has Eddie's backpack sat under that house for 20 years and be in the condition we saw.
Was Delilah's boyfriend working? If not, why was he dressed in his EMT clothes? And he doesn't own that ambulance, right? He can't use it to drive around town, drop off his date.
Normally, when people have only had 2 dates, and one of them has some big event with other friends, the date bows out, saying "I'll let you deal with this with your friends." I'd probably shoe away any only-two-dates-person as being in the way. But not in MLT's land.
Loved Gary's reaction to Maggie at the soda machine. His racing to see her at the airport, though, had to have been originally written prior to September 2001, because his chances of catching her between a cab and security were next to nil. (Prior to 9/11, he at least could run through the airport to find her waiting at a gate, if there was only flight to London that night, and she wasn't instead at an airport bar drowning her sorrows, or in the Admiral's Club that Gary doesn't have a membership to.)
So did Rome and Regina only have the father sign away parental rights, not Eve? And no other contracts? Because all the legal documents should have been signed prior to the birth, since, as many have pointed out, R&R paid for all of Eve's doctor's appointments, etc., in exchange for getting the baby (plus likely some money to Eve). When Regina ran out, I thought she was going to find Katherine to enforce the contract. If Eve has now breached that contract, good luck collecting damages from her on her waitress salary. (would think that in this type of adoption situation, the birth mother would not get to see the baby; it would be handed over to the adoptive parents. That is what happened when my cousin gave up a baby for adoption.)
Wouldn't Eddie have tapped Theo as his best man well prior to the morning of the ceremony? I didn't understand why Gary and Rome would have thought that either of them would be chosen over Theo.
Couples waiting for their baby to be born do not care about missing your vow renewal ceremony.
Why couldn't Eddie's sister tell Katherine where Eddie was? "Katherine, Eddie's suddenly become obsessed with this thing from 20 years ago. I told him to let it go, but he drove to the lake house today." Katherine: "Hmm. Maybe I need to re-think renewing my vows to this dumbass." Okay, I guess that was why....
Just as Eddie was leaving the bar, my husband said "And now he'll get hit by a car." So we actually thought it hilarious when he was right. The Rules of Soap Operas mandate amnesia, but I think others are right that there will be a painkiller crisis.
