Talk of past storylines and her character's affair with Nathan Fillion have her saying, "I would do it again for free." Robin and Erika praise each others' acting skills. Robin admits she'll miss Erika and the clothes the most!

Erika actually went to the producers and said how cute and awesome Robert was. Scenes from Bo and Nora's wedding with Little Richard are shown. Hillary cries as she shows everyone the rubber chicken Robert gave her during the last day of filming. He used to terrorize her and Phil Carey (Asa) with it!

Over talk of their storylines, Kassie refers to Blair as an aging slut!

    Andrea Evans (Tina), one of Max's many women, appears for bit and talks about Tina's love story with Cord.

Later, down and out, Judith got the role of Karen Wolek and gained a new found respect for Daytime actors. She met her husband Robert Desiderio (ex-Steve Piermont) onset. She actually left the show due to him persuading her to try to make it big in Hollywood. And she did on "Who's The Boss!"
