Charles Lane’s "Sidewalk Stories" was released in November, 1989 by Island Pictures to wide acclaim.

“Andy’s mom has always been a bit of an enigma. In the first Toy Story, we barely even saw her face. That’s all fine because throughout the movies, the real focus has been on Andy and the love he has for those toys.”
Alec Baldwin: Good-bye, Public Life:
“Am I bitter about some of the things that have happened to me in the past year? Yes, I’m a human being. I always had big ambitions. I had dreams of running for office at some point in the next five years. In the pyramid of decision-making in New York City politics, rich people come first, unions second, and rank-and-file New Yorkers come dead last. I wanted to change that. I wanted to find a way to lower the »
Also, is Emily losing her mind?
Everyone took deception to the next level on the Jan. 19 episode of Revenge: Emily (Emily VanCamp) and Daniel (Joshua Bowman) went all War of the Roses on us, Victoria (Madeleine Stowe) revealed a dark secret to Patrick (Justin Hartley), and more shocking truths were uncovered!
Let’s face it: Emily and Daniel’s marriage has tanked. Even before the shooting and the fake pregnancy revelation, Daniel wanted out. He’s apparently in love with Sarah (Annabelle Stephenson) and was fully prepared to use her as bait in his battle against Emily.
One of the first things to brighten Emily’s morning — you know, after ripping her stitches open — was the sight of Daniel and Sarah in bed together. He was a total tool to Emily in front of Sarah, but the look on Emily’s face said he was toast. »

Even though she’s proved countless times that she doesn’t really deserve it, ‘Revenge’ fans have always held on to hope for a happy ending for Emily Thorne. Unfortunately, the Jan. 12 episode ‘Endurance’ crushed that hope to death with one of Victoria Grayson’s stilettos.
Revenge‘s third season is getting dark. Gone are the happy-ish days of yore, when Emily (Emily Van Camp) would gleefully take down a worthy opponent week after week; all while keeping her eye on the prize of a happy ending with the Graysons in jail and Emily finally free of her demons. Nowadays, she’ll be lucky if she makes it out of the Hamptons in one piece.

Emily’s luck just got a whole lot worse.
First, Daniel (Joshua Bowman) shot Emily (Emily VanCamp) and ruined her entire revenge plan; then, Emily lost and regained her memories all in one day; and on the Jan. 12 episode of Revenge, Emily had to do battle with the Graysons in the worst place ever — the Grayson Manor!
At the beginning of the episode, Emily was still stuck at the hospital and feeling down, but a little visit from Nolan (Gabriel Mann) in a candy striper outfit put a smile on her face. You guys, Nolan’s just the best. He tried to find out when Emily would be fighting back against the Graysons, but unfortunately, Emily was not having it. She didn’t want to take part in anymore revenge; she just wanted out of the Hamptons, which is understandable — but Emily didn’t stay that way for long!

Now, I’m the first to admit that I’m no shipper, but after the incident on that ship on ‘Revenge’ a few weeks back I can’t stop thinking about the fact that Emily would be completely insane (well, more insane than she already is) if she ever dated anyone but Aiden ever again. Here’s why.
Throughout Season 1 of Revenge, we all wanted to see Emily Thorne (Emily Van Camp) leave her woes behind and hook up with her still-innocent childhood sweetheart, Jack (Nick Wechsler). Still, Daniel (Josh Bowman) showed some promise — despite his family ties — and brief glimpses of light have been shining through his broody darkness ever since. But over the past two episodes, it’s become abundantly clear that anyone but Aiden (Barry Sloane) — and of course, her token Bff Nolan (Gabriel Mann) — would send Emily to her grave.
