My favorite story line was also Luke and Laura on the run. I still get teary-eyed watching them dance at Wyndhams department store. Loved seeing it again on the Soapnet marathon.

I have only seen clips of that storyline. As a kid I mostly remember Holly/Luke. That's why I like that James Ingram song, Baby come to me.

But Laura from the early 90's. The Laura who loaded a shotgun to protect her house but also was so romantic with Stefan in "the night of a thousand kisses". I also loved the Laura that wooped Felicia behind. She almost took out Roy. I also loved the Laura who "read" Bobbie after Bobbie called Nikolas her son. Laura told that heifer off!!! Laura was already pissed Bobbie married Stefan then ahd the nerve to claim Nik and then Bobbie had the nerve to tell Laura she's more of a mother to Nik than Laura ever was. I love the Laura who had to confess to Lucky that Luke raped her but when Lucky started getting slick with her, she put that boy in his place. I love that Laura. She was sweet but with a hardcore side.

I tried to watch the old episodes that I remember being glued to the tv as a kid with Luke and Laura. I have to be honest, I said to several people. "What the hell was the big deal?". I found the sls completely beyond belief (freezing the world). I ended up stopping watching last weekend. I guess I am just a die hard Y and R fan now. No freezing the world, etc. Kuddos though for their milestone.

Luke & Laura's Summer of 1980 on the run will forever be my favorite GH storyline too, Genie!
