Summer's Bay

Hello! I'm new here and would like some help with some unanswered questions :)

Recommended Posts

Hey Everybody! 

I'm a new member and first of all want to say thank you to the Owner/Admin/Moderators of this site who keep us updated and dedicate time to write up the episode summaries. I recently discovered this site and have spent a lot of time reminiscing and watching old episodes of Home and Away while catching up on what the cast members are doing now. 

I'm assuming like most people, I was hoping that Frank and Bobby would make it. I felt their storyline was rushed and regardless, in my opinion, Bobby was Frank's true love.

I haven't caught up on all the episodes however, I was hoping the lovely forum members here would possibly have the answers to some questions I have.

1- When exactly did Roo and Frank get married in New York? Was this mentioned and did Alf/Pippa attend the wedding?

2- When Frank returned to Summer Bay to walk Sally down the aisle, did he acknowledge Bobby's passing?

3- Did Frank remarry?

4- When Frank returned for the sesquicentennial celebrations, what had he been doing for the past few years?  

5- Was it ever explained why Frank never pursued Narelle even though he was attracted to her and claimed he never had feelings for Bobby?

6- Since Roo returned, has she mentioned Bobby or Frank?

7- Am I the only one who noticed that Frank ate a lot? 

8- Was it ever explained why the writers were always quick to pair Pippa off to get married? 

Sorry for all the questions and I hope this isn't posted in the wrong section but I'm excited to find a place to talk about a great show!

2- When Frank returned to Summer Bay to walk Sally down the aisle, did he acknowledge Bobby's passing?

No, the only the reference to Bobby was from Carly to Pippa.

Carly: I was such a cow to Bobby

Pippa: That’s not how I remember it.

 

6- Since Roo returned, has she mentioned Bobby or Frank?

She’s mentioned both Frank & Bobby, however I think the only time she mentioned Bobby was to Morag when Morag was passing judgement on her recent pregnancy, using Bobby as a comeback to one of Morag’s comments.

1-It was all a bit vague.I seem to remember Bobby getting her divorce papers somewhere around 1990, and Frank and Roo sent a telegram to Michael and Pippa's wedding, but I don't think we were actually told they were married until he turned up without her and announced they'd split up!

3-Possibly not.I've heard some people say that he claimed in 2000 that he'd been divorced three times, but BTTB summary puts it as two.

4-I'm not sure if it was stated.I seem to remember Steven mentioning in the 90s that he was living up the Gold Coast somewhere now but I may be misremembering that.

5-I should probably look this up but I've got a vague memory that they kissed at one point and then decided they were better off as friends.

7-Possibly.

8-I'm not sure if we've ever heard anything official, I guess they just thought Pippa on her own with the foster family wasn't working that well.She did seem to be single for a fair while after Michael died, and even when Ian came in he was only an occasional visitor.

Hey C120701!

Thank you for responding!. As i mentioned in my initial post, in my opinion, the Frank and Bobby story line was rushed. It really is a shame that Frank didn't acknowledge Bobby in some way when he returned for his guest spots. If I was a writer for the show, I wouldve had Frank go to her grave and say goodbye to her.

If you dont mind me asking, why did Roo mention Frank?

I appreciate that there are mixed feeling but Morag is a great character and Cornelia Frances is a phenomenal actress!

Hey Red Ranger1!

Thank you for responding!

5- I do recall that Frank was interested in Narelle up until the time that Narelle told him that Bobby was next in line. I do also remember the kiss (only because I am currently watching old episodes!) but that was because Frank was sick of Narelle going on about marking guys out of 10 

7- Haha! For some reason I only noticed it this time around while watching old episodes that Frank spent a lot of time(more than the others) eating and drinking 

 

I do recall Bobby and Carly going to see Narelle in the city the night before Bobby's wedding, do we now what happened to Narelle after that?

Hope you enjoy the forum 

Thank you! I am. 

I am probably the last to know but I just found out that Pippa and Michael are married in real life!

If I recall correctly, Narelle and Matt were a couple in real life at the time. Anybody else?
