Where is the original episode?
12 August 2018 | by jetoriginal-52354See all my reviews

Having watched this in 1985 (when it originally aired) I remember a few scenes in this that were not in this episode.

1. When Jo and Blair are discussing the broadcast, Blairs "The Playful look" is missing then it goes on to "The Stupid look"

2. During the rehearsal in Over Our Heads, Tootie says "what do you think?" to Cam, before he can utter a word, Tootie says "I know, it sings"

3. When Blair is interviewing Penny (after saying the Go Langley cheer) Blair then says "So I take it Langley should GO" to which you hear the laughter track and Jo's "good God I can't believe this" look

Does anyone have the ORIGINAL episode for this. I did tape it on VHS when it came out. However I do not have it anymore.
