A Mary O’Brien fan collected the footage and paid someone to professionally edit the pieces together. Most of the footage comes from old VHS tapes but the quality is still excellent. When Jeff arrives at the Taylor’s, the great VHS quality jumps to broadcast quality. Re: The last 15 minutes of footage comes from Mary O’Brien’s personal tape given to her by Gloria Monty when she left GH. There’s also a disc menu. This storyline takes place while Scotty & Laura are honeymooning in California.
On this edit: Heather Webber, Larry-Joe Baker, Scotty Baldwin, Laura Webber-Baldwin, Jeff Webber, Susan Moore, Peter Taylor, Joe Kelly, Anne Logan, Diana Taylor, Monica Quartermiane, Mr. Kakorian, Bobbie Spencer, Jessie Brewer, Dan Rooney, Lesley Webber, Alice Grant
Heather and Larry-Joe discuss their plans to drug Diana. Laura and Scotty frolic on the beach in California. (Not sure why this scene was left in considering the remainder of the tape is only the LSD storyline, but including it time-stamps the footage for us.) Susan tries to convince Jeff to see Heather’s true colors. Larry-Joe gets his hands on a healthy dose of LSD. An irate Peter lays into Joe for frightening Heather at the park. (He pretended to kidnap PJ to try and get Heather to admit that she was the one tormenting Diana.) Joe & Anne share their evidence against Heather with Peter. He struggles to accept the truth until Joe plays an audio tape of Heather’s confession. Susan does a little of her own tormenting with Heather.
Diana reassures Heather that Peter will fire Joe immediately for the ugly trick he played on her at the park. Larry-Joe delivers Heather’s “headache medication” from Pop Schneider’s pharmacy to the Taylor’s. Diana is unsuspecting. Heather talks to her mother about Jeff’s surprise birthday party scheduled for that evening. Jeff rummages through Heather’s things to try and substantiate or disprove Susan’s accusations. He is shocked by what he finds. Peter calls Diana to ask her to come to his office before her appointment with her psychiatrist. Heather prepares lunch while Diana gets dressed. She tries to reach Larry-Joe to find out how much LSD should be given to Diana. When she can’t reach him, she decides to add the entire contents of the vile to Diana’s iced tea.
Anne shows up at Jeff’s apartment to break the news about Heather. She tells him what he already knows. That Heather has been the one tormenting Diana. Unbeknownst to Heather - PJ gives the lazy-Susan holding the two glasses of iced tea a spin. Round and round it goes. Where the tainted glass lands? Nobody knows!!! Peter phones home once again to make sure Diana comes to see him as soon as she arrives at the hospital. She prepares to leave the apartment and Heather reminds her to finish her iced tea. Monica tries to diffuse Mr. Kakorian’s concerns over Rick’s behavior on the night of his wife’s surgery. Dr Dana Hodgekiss (OBGYN) asks Monica to come to her office at her earliest convenience. And we know what that’s about! (Not sure why this is included either, but again – time-stamps multiple storylines & episodes for us).
Diana runs into Joe Kelly as soon as she arrives at the hospital. She gives him a piece of her mind and tells him that she never wants to see him again. She has an unexpected dizzy spell before getting on the elevator. Bobbie steadies her and asks if she’s ok. Diana says she’s fine and blames the episode on the hot weather. Heather calls Larry-Joe to report the mission accomplished. Jeff shows up at the door just as Heather heads for the basement to erase her phone conversation with Larry-Joe. *ABC – “Still The One” hot-air balloon promo.* Peter shows Diana the irrefutable evidence against Heather. She is in shock and refuses to believe that her best friend would maliciously undermine her. Peter plays the audio tape of Heather’s confession. Diana has no choice but to accept the truth.
Jessie is talking with the Taylor’s in the hospital lounge when Diana has another dizzy spell. Lesley is passing by and comes to her aid. Jeff tries to calmly talk to Heather about what she has been doing to Diana. He promises to get her the best professional help. Heather’s psychedelic behavior is unleashed and we finally know who drank the iced tea laden with LSD. Back at GH - Peter, Jeff & Alice try to get through to Heather. In her delirium, she reveals the details of her plans to take PJ from Peter & Diana so she can give Jeff a son for his birthday.

Roy & Laura at the disco, Roy wants to dance with Laura, Bobbie interrupts when he is coming onto Laura and warns him she will tell Luke, Roy tells Bobbie that he and Luke are like brothers and share everything. Bobbie goes to Laura’s uncle, Jeff Weber (Richard Dean Anderson!) and asks for help getting Roy away from Laura. Jeff asks Joe and they double team the dancing couple. Jeff rescues Laura from Roy’s clutches and then takes Roy over to Bobbie.
Later, Laura tells Jeff that she wishes Luke would get back as he is good at handling Roy. Meanwhile, Luke is meeting with Frank Smith who is filling him in on the hit on Mitch Williams. Frank advises Luke to aim at Mitch’s chest not his head, if he hits him in the chest that will take him out. Luke asks what if he misses? Frank warns that he would be very disappointed in him.
Jeff at the hospital is going to look at the little Quartermaine baby, Alan Quartermaine Jr. Annie seems a bit jealous over Jeff having dinner with Diana. Jeff has coffee with Steve, who recommends that he should consult with a lawyer about ending his marriage to Heather who he doesn’t think may ever get released from the sanitarium.
Scotty and Rick talk about Laura, Scotty says Laura is doing really well despite her notorious headlines. Scotty worries that even Laura seeing a picture of the guy who raped her splashed all over the front paper didn’t bother her. Later, Luke thanks her for identifying the dead man who she says raped her. Laura tells Luke that she has now lied and can never tell her husband the truth about the rape. She tells him that she and Scotty can never live together as man and wife as there will always be this lie between them. Frank Smith enters the disco and tells Luke and Laura that things are all set to open the new club in Las Vegas.
Monica, Alan, Rick, Tracy, Edward are in a court hearing arguing over unsealing Monica’s court deposition in a previous case that may release information about whether Alan Jr. is legitimate issue. Tracy is challenging AJ’s paternity and is petitioning to have this deposition unsealed as proof supporting AJ is not Alan’s son. Afterwards, Alan assures Monica that when she gave him his son that she put to rest all of his doubts and fears over her sleeping with Rick. She thinks to herself that he knows, somehow he has read that deposition and has found out she slept with Rick.
At a charity event, Alan says that without this type of research that they wouldn’t have known about the Bombay Phenotype Syndrome and if they didn’t know about that then Monica wouldn’t have been able to prove that Alan Jr. is in fact Alan’s son. The look on everyone’s face is one of shock, including Rick’s. Monica runs out. Leslie asks Alan if this announcement had to be done in this way? He insists that it did. Lila is thrilled with the potential for a reconciliation for Monica and Alan. Leslie asks Alan how long Monica has known the baby wasn’t Rick’s? He tells her she has known for several weeks.
A pregnant Heather is in the hospital, she is worried about losing her baby. Jeff and everyone has gathered and are waiting for news.
