GUIDING LIGHT SYNOPSIS 12/14/09-12/18/09


Mindy confronted Billy about the discrepancies with her birth certificate, and he finally admitted that the one she'd been using all these years was a forgery.

Billy explained that Mindy's mother, Dina, had been only seventeen years old when she got pregnant. The only way they could have gotten married in Tulsa at the time was by asking her parents' permission. But as she didn't want to tell them she was pregnant, Dina and Billy ran away together. They got married once she turned 18, but Dina, who had been raised very properly, never wanted her daughter to know that she'd been born illegitimate. It was her dying request that Billy keep it a secret.

Mindy forgave her father and happily made plans to order her authentic birth certificate and proceed with her and Rick's plans to adopt a baby. But when Mindy called the attorney representing them and explained what Billy had said, Kevin Fowler told her the story couldn't be true. (Read their entire conversation at:

Meanwhile, in an attempt to keep Leah from going off on a ski trip with Kevin Marler during the holidays, Rick offered to have Blake and her family over for Christmas. When Leah pointed out that Frank would probably want to spend it with the Coopers, Rick suggested having them - as well Danny and Michelle and their family - join the Bauers as well.

Mindy freaked that they didn't have the room to host such a big bash, so Rick blithely volunteered the Spaulding mansion. They would all descend on Phillip's house for a Springfield-wide celebration. Meaning that Mindy would have to spend her holiday within sight of Alex... (And Holly would be forced face to face with Fletch.)

But as she stressed about that, Mindy wondered whether she should confront Billy over what Kevin had said right away, or wait until after Christmas so as not to ruin her first one as Mrs. Rick Bauer.

Rick and Mindy consulted a Bay City attorney, Kevin Fowler (who'd once been a client of Rick's Uncle Mike), about their chances to adopt a baby.

In the middle of their interview, romance writer Felicia Gallant burst in to accuse Kevin of trying to sell her newborn granddaughter to the Bauers.

Mindy and Rick hightailed it home, but later Kevin called to say there was a problem with their paperwork. Mindy's birth certificate wasn't an officially issued version, and they couldn't proceed without that.

Mindy explained that her parents had been on vacation in Mexico when she was born prematurely (surprise!) and as a result, all she has is a notarized copy of the document. She's tried to track down the original in the past, but the bureaucracy made it impossible. Kevin offered to do some digging for her, and Mindy agreed.

Later, she went to see Billy at work, hoping he could steer them in the right direction, but ran into Jonathan instead.

Jonathan insisted that Bill was deliberately closing his eyes to Lizzie's growing obsession with Sarah. Jonathan swore that he wasn't going to let Sarah become another victim of Lizzie's insecurity... like Tammy was.

When Mindy finally got to see Billy, she received even more bad news. Her father told her that Kevin was never going to find Mindy's original birth certificate. And it was about time Billy told Mindy why....

In 1966, after the suicide of his wife, Julie, Mike Bauer (pictured above with mom Bert) packed up his young daughter, Hope, and left Springfield to make a new life for them both in Bay City.

He joined John Randolph's law firm, and began a relationship with John's college-age daughter, Lee.

Lee fell for Mike right away, but Mike wasn't ready to jump into a commitment quite yet... especially after meeting Lee's young stepmother, Pat.

A car accident caused by Lee had left John paralyzed and deeply depressed. Though Pat attempted to nurse her husband back to health, John's humiliation at his debilitation forced him to push Pat away... and straight towards Mike.

Unwilling to hurt John, Mike and Pat agreed to keep their distance, and Mike prepared to move back to Springfield in 1967. But not before kissing Pat good-by. A kiss Lee witnessed.

The 1960s Guiding Light/Another World cross-over was possible because, even though the shows aired on different networks, both were P&G productions created by Irna Phillips. In later years, several AW characters visited ATWT's Oakdale, and Cass Winthrop even made a stop in Springfield, cementing the reality that all three shows existed in the same (fictional) universe.

Today, in the spirit of those earlier cross-overs, GL's Rick and Mindy pay a visit to Bay City. Read all about it at and at!

November 23 - November 27, 2009 synopsis from

Mindy was looking forward to hosting her first Thanksgiving as a Bauer with just herself, Rick, Ed, Holly, Michelle, Danny, Robbie, Hope, Billy and Vanessa in attendance.

But then Rick shocked her with the news that, for Leah's sake, he'd invited all the Bouderaux - Clayton, Felicia, Remy, Christina, their baby, Mel and Cyrus - to join them.

Mindy resolved to stay calm and dignified (like Vanessa). It proved tricky though when, in response to Mindy gushing that she's been planning her first holiday as Mrs. Rick Bauer for twenty-six years, Mel snarked, "So has Rick."

"What? I'm not allowed to mention that the whole time we were married, Rick was pining away for his Four Musketeer days? It's what led to his affair with Beth, after all," Mel reminded. "Oh, I'm sorry, did we all decide to politely pretend that never happened?"

To diffuse the situation, Rick stepped up and admitted that Mel was right. He had been a bad husband to her. But that he refused to apologize for it.

Rick explained that saying he was sorry about their marriage would mean that he wished it had never happened. And Rick would never wish that. Because then they wouldn't have Leah....

Crisis temporarily diffused, everybody sat down to dinner, where Ed recalled his mother, Bert, and how thankful she was for life not just on the holidays, but every day.

Although Holly agreed with Mindy's assessment that Kevin spelled trouble for Leah, a guilty Rick insisted on giving Blake's son the benefit of the doubt. He felt vindicated when, a few days later, Leah told Rick she'd decided to join her school's gifted program after all - because Kevin had talked her into it.

Jonathan asked Mindy to meet him so they could talk about what really happened the day Sarah refused to go home with Lizzie. Jonathan admitted that while he wants to support Lizzie and Sarah's relationship - it's why he brought their daughter home - he thinks Lizzie might be dangerous for Sarah. Jonathan reminded that he's familiar with what happens when Lizzie gets jealous and possesive. The last time, Tammy ended up dead because of it.

Jonathan thought it would be better if Lizzie focused a little more on Alana now, and gave Sarah some space. She's scaring the girl.

Mindy accused Jonathan of being the one to suggest to Sarah that her mother preferred the baby over her, which is what triggered the showdown in the first place. Jonathan denied vehmently and stormed off.

Rick advised Mindy to lay off meddling into other people's business, but she insited that she was a Bauer wife now. She has Bert and Maureen's footsteps to follow in. She can't stand by while people she loves suffer. She wants to live up to their legacy!

Mindy visited Lizzie, who sobbed that anytime she does something with Alana, all she can think about is how she never got the chance to do the same for Sarah. Lizzie asked Mindy if she should sue Jonathan for sole custody: It's the only way she can think of to garauntee never losing her daughter again.
