I was recently watching episodes from 1978 that someone had posted on Youtube. During the episode where Scotty asked Lesley if he could take Laura out of town for a early dinner one of Lesleys pacients remembered Bobbie Spencer from when they lived on Elm Street. She mentioned that Luke and Bobbie had another sister named Pat and asked Bobbie if she had heard from her. This is the first time I've heard mention of a Pat Spencer and I was wondering whatever happened to her?
Just looking around briefly on the internet, SoapCentral now lists a Patricia "Pat" Spencer as Luke and Bobbie Spencer's sister on both their pages and on the Spencer family tree. I can't find it mentioned anywhere else though, and had never noticed Pat on that site (or any site) before. It does sound vaguely familiar though.
Ep. 9 Fall 1978 part 2. Collen Middleton mentions helping Bobbie cut up her sister Pat's dress for her I believe at 4:48?
I've never heard of her before either until I started watching these older episodes. :) In several parts and in this one as well a few people mention a Cousin Bobbie lived with in Florida as well, Lorane? I think they said her name was? I've never heard her mentioned before either.
I think the writers forgot about her lol. I don't remember ever hearing her mentioned again. 1978 was before my time (I was born in 1984). It sounds like Pat was older than Bobbie, but I don't know if she's older or younger than Luke. Luke has talked about his mother's death before, and he never mentioned Pat, just that he was 7 and Bobbie was 3 when she died. It seems as if they rewrote history because if this Colleen lady helped Bobbie trim a dress from her sister Pat, she probably would have been older than 3. And, according to later episodes, it's said that they were sent to Florida after their mother died (when Bobbie was about 3). I'll add Pat to the wiki. Thanks!
Todays GH had a conversation between Bobby and faux Luke. He says to her, "You are my favorite sister. You are my only sister!" to which Bobby says, "We both know that that's not true." Hummmmmmmmmmmmm???
Expect a bump in page visits. I'm here because of yesterday's mention of another Spencer sister. Frank and Ron have so much fun dropping those little easter eggs. Maybe Pat Spencer and Bobby Martin met somewhere between Port Charles and Pine Valley and moved elsewhere together.
I have been watching since 1974 and I did not remember a sister. I stopped here for the same reason because of the mention in yesterday's episode from Bobby about "we both know that isn't true." I am assuming that's one of the bombshells they are going to use to tie in what's going on with the "fluke" storyline. At least it's nice to know they didn't just make her up out of the blue and in fact she was at least a mentioned character from thier past.
Thanks for mentioning the youtube episodes from 1978.
