Default FOL Reimagined - All Eight Girls in All Nine Seasons!

So, knowing what a bad job the writers did writing out balanced stories for all 7 of the original "Garrett's Girls", I thought I'd share how I'd like to see season one (and now it's branched out to all nine seasons, lol) if they could go back in time and re-shoot it with the original cast making their screen time more equal and closer to a true ensemble cast---including fellow charter Eastland faculty member Miss Mahoney in the early episodes, and guest appearances by fellow Eastlander Kimberly Drummond.

Based on the episode descriptions per Wikipedia:

"Rough Housing" - The Drummonds visit Mrs. Garrett at the Eastland private school, which Kimberly attends. During the Harvest Queen competition Blair makes a comment about tomboyish competitor Cindy not being feminine enough. Cindy decides not to attend the Harvest Ball, until Mrs. Garrett helps her with her self-image.

"Like Mother, Like Daughter" - Blair is upset that she might get a reputation for being easy when her multiple-divorcée mother visits for Parents Night and flirts with the headmaster Mr. Bradley, and also, much to Kimberly's chagrin, Mr. Drummond.

"The Return of Mr. Garrett" - Mrs. Garrett accepts her ex-husband's proposal of remarriage, after discussing the proposition with Kimberly and Blair. But she soon changes her mind when she discovers he has influenced Natalie to teach the other girls how to gamble.

"I.Q." - The headmaster, Mr. Bradley, obtains results of the girls' I.Q. tests; some of the girls are not happy with the results when Tootie finds out Nancy is at the top of the list and Sue Ann at the bottom.

"Overachieving" - Tootie's father thinks Mrs. Garrett's influence over his daughter is holding her back as Tootie has aspired to open a beauty salon with best friend Natalie.

"Emily Dickinson" - Blair plagiarizes an Emily Dickinson poem about beauty---and must placate Tootie, who finds out. She must come clean though when Miss Mahoney submits the poem to a competition and it wins.

"Dieting" - The pressure of body image gets to the girls. Molly is livid with Blair when Sue Ann goes on a crash diet after hearing Blair imply that a boy won't like her because of her weight.

"The Facts of Love" - To Mr. Bradley's chagrin, Mrs. Garrett holds a sex education class. Nancy gets into a compromising situation with her new boyfriend Roger and has to make a tough decision.

"Flash Flood" - Cindy and Nancy rush to the stables to protect the animals when a flood hits Peekskill. When Mr. Bradley rescues the two girls Nancy develops a hero-crush on him, temporarily confusing her own feelings about Roger.

"Adoption" - The girls get an assignment from Miss Mahoney to make a family tree, but Natalie doesn't want to do it since she is adopted. Kimberly thinks she is helping when she uses her father's connections to arrange for Natalie to talk to her birth mother by phone.

"Running" - When star athlete Cindy convinces cheerleader Sue Ann to try her boundless energy at long-distance running, Mr. Bradley pits the two girls against each other in a regional track competition---which Cindy has won the last two years.

"Molly's Holiday" - Molly finds out her parents are getting divorced. While Sue Ann takes Nancy, Kimberly, and a hesitant Blair to Kansas for spring break on the farm, Cindy and the other girls devise a scheme to bring Molly's parents back together---but Molly's father brings his new girlfriend.

"Dope" - Blair gets Nancy into a clique known as "The Group" whose members are marijuana smokers. Although Blair insists she doesn't smoke, Nancy is pressured into trying.

I like this! This would have balanced the season out way more, instead of it becoming "The Blair, Tootie, and Sue Ann Show" the way it became during the last five or so episodes of Season One.

Now do Season Two!

Thanks It is such fun to imagine things like this!

Well I edited the title of this thread to reflect "the Eastland years", cause it would be fun to see how else we could tailor them.

One note about season two: does it ever bother anyone else that we get no continuity of sets between season one and season two? Couldn't they have filmed the first half of the episode in the common room at the dorm, where the girls are all wild and free without a new house mother yet, and then moved to the kitchen/cafeteria when Mrs. Garrett brings them back from the police station? After all, in season five we got to see Mrs. Garrett and Natalie and Tootie at Eastland before the scene shifts to the house and shop for the next 4 seasons; I loved how they did that, and they could really have done something like for that continuity with season one viewers going into season two. And that way all the girls could have been in the first half of the show.

Anyway, for the reimagining of what could have been:

Season Two:

"The New Girl: Part 1" - A new student named Jo Polniaczek arrives at the dorm. Mrs. Garrett, now the school dietician, encourages outgoing Sue Ann and tomboy Cindy to try and make friends with streetwise Jo. Jo wants to do something rebellious, daring the other girls in the dorm to come along. She hotwires a van and takes them all to a bar but they run into trouble when a good-looking guy there reveals himself to be an undercover cop.

"The New Girl: Part 2" - After wrecking the school van and being thrown in jail, all eight girls are put on probation by Mr. Bradley. They must work in the cafeteria to pay off their damages and live over it under the watchful eye of dietician Mrs. Garrett, in lieu of expulsion from Eastland.

"Double Standard" - Blair is upset when her childhood friend Harrison Andrews asks Sue Ann to the country club cotillion instead of her, but later discovers his true intentions.

"Who Am I?" - Tootie falls for an African-American boy but becomes conflicted when he comments that she only hangs out with white girls.

"Cousin Geri" - Blair's cousin Geri (Geri Jewell), a comedian who has cerebral palsy, visits Eastland while Molly and Nancy organize a talent show.

"Shoplifting" - For Mrs. Garrett's upcoming birthday Jo, Cindy, and Tootie decide to pool their money together to buy her a shirt, but they miss the sale. While they're at the store Jo decides to steal the shirt. But when Mrs. Garrett tries to exchange it, she finds it was stolen.

"Teenage Marriage: Part 1" - Nancy receives an unexpected marriage proposal from her steady boyfriend Roger, who wants to leave neighboring Bates Academy and start a family life with her.

"Teenage Marriage: Part 2" - Mrs. Garrett and the girls try to stall Nancy from getting married so they can contact Nancy's mother.

"Gossip" - Tootie's gossiping causes a rift between Molly and Cindy, and almost costs Mrs. Garrett her job.

"Breaking Point" - Sue Ann gets heavily involved in a campaign for student council president, but loses. Things take a serious turn when her former opponent commits suicide.

"Sex Symbol" - Natalie has a study session with a boy she met at a school dance. When rumors spread throughout the school that they did more than just study, Natalie receives a barrage of requests from other boys while her friends question her newfound popularity and she encourages more.

"The Secret" - Cindy wins a prestigious Eastland sports award but when her recently paroled father wants to attend, Cindy tries to hide his past from her friends.

"Bought and Sold" - Blair tries selling Countess Calvert cosmetics and uses Natalie and Cindy as walking billboards.

"Pretty Babies" - A top fashion photographer is coming to Eastland to find the new face of the '80s, and Blair is positive she is it. The photographer surprises everyone by choosing Tootie as his model and Molly as his new assistant---but the price of the photo sessions proves costly.

"Free Spirit" - Mrs. Garrett's son Alex visits Eastland. Alex brags about his life as a musician socializing with famous people such as Carly Simon and Neil Diamond, which attracts Molly's affections and aspirations, but Sue Ann feels suspicious.

"Brian and Sylvia" - Tootie takes Natalie, Jo, and Cindy to Buffalo to visit Tootie's Uncle Brian and Aunt Sylvia, who are an interracial couple. Sylvia has received a job offer in New York City but Brian does not want to move.

Eventually all the girls find a way to communicate this issue to the parents, culminating in a large presence at the board meeting.

These are great! (Also, thank you for changing "Starstruck" to Michael Jackson. As long as we're re-writing history, we might as well make the episode make sense. No one would go that crazy for Jermaine Jackson).

But where is Season 4? I want to see Nancy and Sue Ann graduate!

Season 4


"The Facts of Life Goes to Paris" - Mrs. Garrett and her eight charges fly off to Paris, France. The plan is for the girls to spend some time at their French sister school while Mrs. Garrett attends a cooking school. As it turns out Mrs. Garrett is in for more than she bargained for and her girls, hoping to spend some time in Paris, find themselves stuck in the school which is actually outside of Paris; but during the last week of their stay when they are finally taken into the city of Paris itself, they bolt and go separate ways:
  • Jo goes to Le Mans and meets a French boy in the countryside
  • Blair and Nancy, seduced by the thought of cute French boys, soon discover the better value in spending time getting insights into their own selves and each other, without boys on their minds.
  • Sue Ann is mistaken for the daughter of a multi-millionaire and finds herself attending the most lavish mansions and parties she never dreamed about back in Kansas City.
  • Natalie and Tootie run into a struggling writer at a Parisian café and decide to help him with his assignment and his inspiration.
  • Cindy attends a high school girls' football match and befriends some of the athletes on the French team who embrace her as one of their own. They take her around to some of the locals' favorite "hole in the wall" places around the streets of Paris that she otherwise would have never seen.
  • Molly takes advantage of the exotic locale to hone her photography skills amid the lovely Parisian architecture and scenery. She finds herself attracted to an older Frenchman she meets at the Eiffel Tower who mentors her in his art of the photograph.
  • Meanwhile, Mrs. Garrett is frustrated having a hard time trying to impress the French Chef in charge of her cooking class.



"Ain't Miss Beholden" - Nancy, Sue Ann, and Jo's futures at Eastland are in jeopardy when they learn their scholarship funds are drying up---and Blair may be their only chance to stay.

"The Source" - Molly is under pressure to reveal her source for a controversial article on a schoolmate's secret abortion she has written for the school newspaper.

"The Sound of Silence" - Nancy discovers Tootie's sudden personality change and slipping grades are the result of a hearing problem.

"The Oldest Living Graduate" - Eastland's oldest living graduate, a wealthy eccentric, decides to leave her money to Eastland until Jo inadvertently changes her mind.

"Different Drummer" - Blair thinks she is doing a good deed by tutoring a mentally retarded young man, but the naive student misinterprets her good intentions. It's up to Cousin Geri to teach Blair and her friends about just what Leo's "specialness" means.

"Dearest Mommie" - Natalie gets an opportunity to write a column for a newspaper in New York. She gets into an argument with her mother over how it could affect her schoolwork. Her mother eventually reveals the name of Natalie's biological mother.

"A Woman's Place" - Cindy lands a new job as a sporting goods associate with her boyfriend as a colleague, but a problem develops when she gets promoted to supervise him.

"Daddy's Girl" - Blair's close relationship with her father is tested when a tax audit uncovers her father's questionable accounting.

"The Big Fight" - A friend invites Cindy to watch his match at Stone Military Academy. He originally did the match to oblige his father, but learns that his father will not even show up.

"For the Asking" - Molly asks a boy to the Sadie Hawkins dance but is turned down. She decides to boycott and spend the evening in with Sue Ann and Jo, but they end up going on dates, leaving Molly the odd woman out.

"September Song" - Mrs. Garrett receives a marriage proposal from her elderly boyfriend Henry, who later hurts his back. The girls help take care of him.

"A Royal Pain" - Excitement reigns when royalty enrolls at Eastland, until Tootie accidentally discovers that the new student, a young princess, is a runaway who is getting ready to skip out again. Shortly afterward, she moves back to Europe to a prestigious school closer to her home.

"Magnificent Obsession" - Molly is concerned by Blair's infatuation with a boy who asked Blair to a dance, but leaves with another girl.

"Under Pressure" - When Mrs. Garrett is diagnosed with high blood pressure, the girls will do anything to shield her from stress. But their good intentions lead to lies, cover-ups, and big trouble.

"Teacher's Pet" - Jo learns that her favorite teacher is terminally ill.

"Let's Party" - The girls learn a frightening lesson about drinking and driving when they join Nancy's college-age brother and his roommate for a night on the town.

"Best Sister: Part 1" - Blair's stepsister Meg, a nun, inspires Sue Ann.

"Best Sister: Part 2" - When Sue Ann decides that she wants to become a nun along with Meg, Blair sees herself as the only one who can talk them out of it.

"Guess Who's Coming to Dinner?" - Mrs. Garrett's cooking instructor from Paris visits Eastland. Meanwhile Jo wants to kill a squirrel that has entered their bedroom, but moved by Molly's beliefs in animal rights, Nancy strives to save it.

"Who's on First" - Natalie devotes all her time to her new beau, prompting a slighted Tootie into a deceitful course of action to regain her attention.

"Help from Home" - Jo has been accepted at Langley College along with Blair, Nancy, and Sue Ann, but does not tell anyone because she does not plan to attend because of her family's financial situation. However, when she takes a trip home for the weekend, she learns that her entire family knows about her acceptance, and is counting on her to do well.

"Take My Finals, Please!" - In spite of Mrs. Garrett's opposition, the eight girls settle in their room for an all-night study session. As the hours slip away, every imaginable distraction impedes their preparation for final exams.

"Graduation" - Half of Mrs. Garrett's charges---Nancy, Blair, Jo, and Sue Ann---all achieve a common bond when their graduation from Eastland causes a flood of preparations and overreactions from their parents and friends. Mrs. Garrett and Tootie are reassuring and calm during the hectic last-minute graduation preparations, while Cindy and Natalie help Miss Mahoney get the event in order. Molly captures moments from all the girls' involvement with her camera and uses the photographs, along with snapshots from their previous years together at Eastland, to make nine very memorable scrapbooks for Mrs. Garrett and her friends. Together, Nancy, Blair, Sue Ann, and Jo see how much more they learned at Eastland than just academics.

This is great! It doesn't have to stop here. You should find a way to write Nancy, Sue Ann, Cindy, Molly, Mr. Bradley, and Ms. Mahoney into Seasons 5-9 as well. I'd like to see where they fit in the Edna's Edibles and Over Our Heads years. It would also be interesting to see them interact with Andy and Beverly Ann.

I agree with Cookie. As long as we're re-writing history, it'd be cool to see what you could do with later seasons. (Also, since four of the girls would still be at Eastland, maybe they'd have more scenes there, even after Edna left due to Mr. Bradley's jerkiness, going into business for herself?)


Also, so far my favorite re-written episodes are:

Quote:
"Best Sister: Part 1" - Blair's stepsister Meg, a nun, inspires Sue Ann.

"A Woman's Place" - Cindy lands a new job as a sporting goods associate with her boyfriend as a colleague, but a problem develops when she gets promoted to supervise him.

"Front Page" - After her essay gets trashed by her journalism teacher, Jo writes an article that shows him at a drug bust. Molly, the school paper's editor-in-chief, must make a hard decision whether or not to publish it in the paper.

"Graduation" Half of Mrs. Garrett's charges, Nancy, Blair, Jo, and Sue Ann, finally achieve a common bond when their graduation from Eastland causes a flood of preparations and overreactions from their parents and friends. Mrs. Garrett, Natalie, and Tootie are reassuring and calm during the hectic last-minute graduation preparations, while Cindy helps Miss Mahoney get the event in order.

You've chosen to accentuate the best part of each of the characters, and give them episodes where they fit in best. They're rarely shoehorned in, and feel very natural in the episodes where they've been inserted.

That Eastland graduation episode is imagined even better than I could have imagined it.

Dammit, where is that time machine when we need it?!

This made me laugh so hard, '80s. That was so funny.

What I will say is that it was nice, in Season 4, to see one recurring student. By then, Miko and Teri and the Lost Girls were all gone, so Alexandra was the very last attempt at providing some continuity in terms of other students at Eastland. That is something positive about Alexandra.

Hmm, although, personally for me it would be hard to keep Mr. Bradley at Eastland, because, although he could be unreasonable, I just cannot see him being such a jerk to Mrs. Garrett that Mr. Parker was in season 5's premiere. We kind of accept it with Mr. Parker because he's an on-again/off-again jerk, but I like to think Mr. Bradley was never that bad to Mrs. Garrett herself.

Dammit, where is that time machine when we need it?!
lol, thanks Retro, that is high praise from such a fellow huge fan indeed.

You do have a point, I'll give you that about her, lol.

Default Okay, let's try moving away from the Eastland campus and see what happens...

Season 5

So for season 5, we'll just imagine that the four younger girls still attending Eastland move in with Mrs. Garrett as well as the four older girls who've graduated and moved on to Langley. We'll knock out a wall upstairs between two guest rooms and make that their bigger more spacious bedroom than what they had at Eastland; a stretch, I know, lol.

"Brave New World" - Nancy, Jo, Blair, and Sue Ann start at Langley College. Mrs. Garrett announces she is leaving Eastland after Mr. Bradley is replaced with the pompous, irrational new headmaster Mr. Parker, to open her own gourmet shop called Edna's Edibles. After seeing just how much work getting a shop off the ground from scratch and running it will be, the graduated girls move in with Mrs. Garrett to help out, and Mrs. Garrett uses her clout to allow Cindy, Molly, Natalie, and Tootie to also move in with her and help run the shop while they're attending Eastland.

"Gamma Gamma or Bust" - Blair is stunned when Sue Ann is nominated to pledge the Gamma Gamma Mu sorority at Langley and she's not.

"Just My Bill" - Jo falls in love, but she becomes resentful when her guy turns out to be wealthy.

"What Price Glory?" - Cindy discovers that her boyfriend Tom, a fellow school athlete at Bates, has problems reading.

"The Halloween Show" - The girls have a Halloween party, but Mrs. Garrett appears to be possessed and a customer disappears without explanation, all thanks to Nancy's eager experiment in human psychology.

"Advance Placement" - Although Natalie is still a junior at Eastland, she gets an opportunity to enroll in a course at Langley. However, she soon develops an ego that puts a strain on her friendship with the other girls.

"I'm Dancing as Fast as I Can" - Nancy, Blair, and Sue Ann take Mrs. Garrett to a male strip club for her birthday, but it's Nancy who gets the real surprise when her boyfriend Roger comes out dancing on the stage.

"Small But Dangerous" - Mrs. Garrett and the girls deal with a sudden outbreak of vandalism at the store and discover a young girl may be responsible. When Jo and Cindy get a hold of her, they are surprised at the reasons for her actions.

"Store Games" - A competing store takes a big bite out of Mrs. Garrett's business. Molly and Natalie investigate and discover the store has been copying Mrs. Garrett's recipes, so the girls try some tactics to fix that.

"The Second Time Around" - Molly gets excited when it looks as though her parents might be reconciling and getting back together.

"The Christmas Show" - The girls prepare to go their separate ways for Christmas vacation.

"The Chain Letter" - While Tootie answers a chain letter Mrs. Garrett's shop is threatened with closure by the health department because of constant neglect by all the girls. After she decides to fire them, the eight of them rally together to try to prove to her they will never disappoint her again.

"Next Door" - Tootie befriends a little boy whose single mother does not have time to take care of him.

"Crossing the Line" - Tootie is at odds with Molly over Molly's desire to date Tootie's cousin.

"All or Nothing" - Jo is elected to the Langley board of regents, and with the unwanted help of Sue Ann's criticisms, she quickly learns about the politics of the financial decisions they make and who could be hurt by them.

"A Death in the Family" - Natalie's father dies from a sudden heart attack.

"Big Fish/Little Fish" - Mrs. Garrett and the other girls help Natalie who is still reeling from her father's death. Meanwhile, Blair is realizing she is not the "big fish" at Langley that she used to be at Eastland.

"Star at Langley" - When a famous movie star enrolls at Langley, Nancy becomes jealous of the attention she lavishes on Roger.

"Dream Marriage" - While Tootie starts dating an older boyfriend named Zack, Blair receives a marriage proposal and dreams of what her life might be like in the future, in the year 2000.

"Mother and Daughter" - Cindy's mother visits and the two discover just how big the gap is in their relationship. Though at odds with each other, they would both like to know how to be closer.

"All by Herself" - Geri gets a chip on her shoulder about her abilities when she asks Blair to assist her in a fundraising for a school for disabled children.

"Seems Like Old Times" - Eddie, Jo's former boyfriend, returns to rekindle their relationship--- but he harbors a devastating secret.

"Joint Custody" - Mrs. Garrett's son Raymond, who owns the building where his mother's shop is located, visits with his wife Doris. It becomes apparent that the couple is headed towards divorce unless Mrs. Garrett and the girls can help them reconcile. [side note: I think "Joint Custody" should have been the title for season one's "Dope" ]

"The Way We Were" - Cindy graduates with a sports scholarship to Langley that impresses all her friends, and the girls prepare for their summer vacations. Talking about Cindy's lifelong penchant for sports, the girls all look back on the past as seen in clips from previous episodes. Blair and Jo ultimately get into a major argument. The girls continue to reminisce of their friendships. Nancy, Cindy, Molly, Natalie, Tootie, and Sue Ann try to patch things up with Blair and Jo.
