Y&R 1974

Chris Foster was still traumatized by her rape and refused to have sex with Snapper even though she loved him very much. Snapper showed a great deal of patience and respect for Chris, offering her emotional support but finding his own sexual pleasure with Sally McGuire.

Sally had fallen in love with Snapper, too, and was desperate to keep him. She saw in him the decency and security she wanted in a husband. Her own family life had been rough. Her father died an alcoholic and her mother committed suicide. Sally was already an unwed mother.

In spite of her friend Brad Eliot’s advice that she’d only end up getting hurt, Sally decided to use a desperate single woman’s oldest trick. She threw away her birth control pills and got pregnant by Snapper.

Meanwhile, Snapper was growing more and more fond of Chris. He broke off with Sally without knowing he would be the father of her child. With Snapper’s encouragement, Chris was able to file charges against her attacker. Unfortunately, because of lack of evidence, he was not convicted. Determined all the more to stand by her side, Snapper proposed marriage. It took him a long time to get her to accept, but Chris finally did and they became engaged.

Sally was devastated when she found out about Snapper’s engagement. She took a drug overdose, but Brad saved her life when he found her and rushed her to the hospital. When she was out and about again, Sally told her boss, Pierre Roulland that she was pregnant. He was in love with her and offered to marry her and give the baby his name. No one would have to know he was not the father.

Sally intended to tell Snapper that he had gotten her pregnant, hoping he would break his engagement to Chris and marry her instead. When Snapper’s mom, Liz, found out, she did her best to change Sally’s mind about interfering with Snapper’s future. Liz’s counseling worked. Sally accepted Pierre’s proposal and they eloped a few days before Chris and Snapper’s wedding.

Although Snapper overheard the conversation between Sally and his mother, Snapper had no intention of changing his plans. He and Chris had a lovely wedding. Even Chris’ sister Lorie returned from Europe for the celebration. Except for the continuing jealousy and rivalry between Lorie and “preferred child” Leslie, it was a happy family occasion.

After an uneasy sexual start, Chris and Snapper worked through her problems and were happy together, living in a small apartment. When Chris became pregnant, however, Snapper’s pleasure was tinged by fears that having another responsibility might hinder his medical career aspirations.

Lorie, found a way to ruin her sister Leslie’s happiness when Leslie confided that she was in love with Brad. Undermining that relationship became Lorie’s goal. She took a job at The Chronicle and worked closely with Brad, using the proximity to feed him misinformation about how Leslie felt about him. Lorie led Brad to the conclusion that music was more important than any man to Leslie and that to try to win her would only impede her career. Lorie also made Leslie believe that Brad was losing interest in her.

Meanwhile, Jill Foster was immersed in her rich surroundings. Kay was good to her new paid companion and trusted her, too. Jill was fairly understanding of Kay’s drunken mood swings and realized the woman was very unhappy. She was rich, but her marriage was a sham.

Jill and Phillip Chancellor became closer through Kay, each helping the other deal with her alcoholic outbursts. The two fought their growing attraction for each other, but soon, their mutual attraction was undeniable. It didn’t matter they were from different worlds. They fell in love but kept it a treasured secret.

When Brock Reynolds, Kay’s son from a prior marriage, arrived at the Chancellor home, a new element was added to the mix. After living a fast lifestyle of drugs and sex, he wanted to help his mother find herself, and God. The attractive young man, who had once spent plenty of party time with Lorie Brooks in Paris, had given up many bad habits, but still had an eye for woman and Jill’s good looks and comparatively innocent nature caught his interest. She, on the other hand, wanted only Phillip.

Y&R 1973

Fantasies of starting over with a completely new life are rarely fulfilled, but Dr. Brad Eliot was swept into his without forethought. Distraught because the son of his fiancee, Barbara Anderson, died while he was operating on him, Brad Eliot walked away from his medical practice as a psychiatrist and neurosurgeon. Brad was actually the boy’s father. As he left Chicago, circumstances went from bad to worse when his car and wallet were stolen. In a haze, he wandered into Genoa City with nothing more than the dirty clothes on his back. Then, after enjoying a meal at Pierre’s restaurant, he had to admit he couldn’t pay the tab. That’s when Brad’s luck actually changed for the better.

Stuart Brooks, the owner/publisher of The Genoa City Chronicle, overheard Brad’s conversation with waitress Sally McGuire. Trusting his instincts that this was no ordinary panhandler, Stuart gave him a job. Fate continued to nudge Brad into a new life when he saw a news wire story declaring that Dr. Brad Eliot had been killed in a car accident. Clearly, the thief who stole his car and wallet had been killed and mistakenly identified, giving the real Dr. Eliot an opportunity to start his life over.

Stuart Brooks and his wife Jennifer had four daughters: Leslie, a rather shy pianist; Lauralee, called Lorie, an adventurous author; Chris, a journalist; and Peggy, a college student. Although Brad clearly chose to keep his past a mystery, he proved himself likable, helpful and basically honest. It was easy for Stuart to encourage a budding relationship between Leslie and Brad.

Before Brad came into her life, Leslie was totally absorbed in her music. She never dated and was far more comfortable at her piano than with men. But she was drawn to Brad and fell in love with him as he supported and encouraged her career, which took off beautifully. For the first time in her life, Leslie found the promise of happiness professionally and personally.

While Stuart approved of Brad’s interest in Leslie, he was not thrilled when local medical student Snapper Foster (William Foster Jr.) caught the eye of his trusting daughter, Chris. Stuart was less offended by Snapper’s blue-collar roots than by his indifference to Chris. (Snapper was so-named due to his tendency toward irritability and to “snap” at people.)

Handsome Snapper was not only putting himself through medical school, but being “man of the family” after his dad deserted them seven years earlier. The eldest son, Snapper was helping his mom Liz, a factory worker, put his brother Greg through law school and keeping a big-brother eye on his sister Jill who dreamed of being a fashion model while working as a beautician. Liz wished the best for all her children and encouraged Snapper to pursue a nice, well-bred girl like Chris. However, with enough obligations already, Snapper preferred to keep his freedom. Snapper was also seeing Sally McGuire, a waitress at Pierre’s.

One evening, Chris invited Snapper to the Brooks home for dinner but he didn’t show. After a day at school and work he had visited Sally, fell asleep and she conveniently forgot to wake him as he had asked. His half-truth–that he fell asleep after a full day–satisfied Chris enough to get her through the hurt of disappointment.

Her dad, however, grew more displeased with Snapper. When Stuart learned that Snapper was seeing Sally, he was quick to tell Chris that Snapper was cheating on her. Chris moved out and went to work as a secretary for Greg Foster, unaware that her dad had financially helped his new law practice in return for her employment. When she found out, she angrily quit. Greg was especially saddened because he had fallen in love with Chris.

One evening after an unsuccessful day of job hunting, Chris stopped by a local bar and met George Curtis who bought her a drink, seemed pleasant enough, and offered to escort her safely home. Once there, however, he raped her.

Jill was unhappy working at the salon, but wouldn’t take Snapper’s advice about going to college to broaden her chances for a career that would bring her the lifestyle she dreamed about. Instead, she won the trust of a rich, powerful and temperamental customer, Kay Chancellor. When Kay, an alcoholic, fired her personal secretary, Jill took the opportunity to enter the world she dreamed about. She convinced Kay to hire her
