These vary in length from 5 1/2 - 6 hrs. They may end around 5 hrs then have an interview or two. They are also not my original edits but copies and I've lost touch with the person who originally loaned them to me. This set contain L&L scenes, Luke with others, Laura with others, some other characters like Scotty, Heather, Joe, Noah Drake & Bobbie & Tiffany, also Tiffany & Robert meeting for the first time, a little Alan & Monica.... you get a feel for what else is going on in PC during this time but it mainly follows the L&L storyline.

The Ice Princess storyline begins around edit #3, O'Reilly dies on edit #5, and they leave on the Cassadine yacht around edit #6.

Next, Laura is disappointed. She has placed ads in the personal columns looking for Scotty so she can get a divorce from him. The responses she has received are rather lewd and not from Scotty.
