Can we have a thread about the best Neighbours moments?
257

Scabbersweasley · 29/07/2022 21:53

In honour of the finale, can we have a thread about the most memorable moments over the years? I haven't watched for many years now but as a kid it was on every single day.

Moments/characters I remember:

A spider falling into someone's from above the mirror in the car making her accelerate and knock down and kill another character (I think it was Cheryl?)

Joe Mangles dog Bouncer.

Joe Mangle's wife dying by being shot at in some sort of duck enclosure (I was very young for that one so could have got that wrong).

Fancying Billy and Lance and having posters of them on my bedroom wall.

A curly haired, husky voiced girl being shot. Was she called Cody?

A wheeler dealer character called Lou.

Anyone else?!

Loved Cody.

Any episode with Rick Alessi gets my vote. Gutted he wasn’t back tonight but maybe for the best that he, his hockey stick and floppy hair remain firmly in my misty memories!

Am muscling in on this thread but was Annalise in the finale? I haven’t watched since about 1990 so was peering through the mists of time at a lot of the characters. I didn’t noticed Billy at the time either but now thinking the video, guy with facial hair?

Beth’s boyfriend Brad shagging some woman behind the sofa - you could see their legs sticking out. I can’t remember her name now.

A sports day where a character with MS played cricket. She was a teen character’s mum, and it was really emotional. My hormonal little soul cried buckets

Libby’s kidney transplant…I think?

Paul and Gail arguing over Mr Udogowa while wearing power suits.

Yeah I think he was there with the beard!

I really fancies him once upon a time but also Rick Alessi before that


Guy Pearce has aged very well.

The Kennedy family meetings. Particularly memorable one was the one where they knew Billy had started smoking, so they made him sit there and smoke an entire packet of cigarettes in front of them one after the other. 90s parenting at its best.

Weren’t there two Cody’s. Two actresses I mean. The second one was huskier. The first one had to watch Todd die. I think. Am clearly older that some others on here.

I vaguely remember a Mrs Mangle from the Madge and Harold days, and the twins, one who married Paul, oh the nostalgia.

Madge dying and sonia's diagnosis and death were both heartbreaking. Eve morey is a fab actress.

Scott and Charlene's wedding.

Harold (and Dee) coming back from the dead.

Stingray dying.

Karl telling Drew to ‘drop and roll’ because he was on fire(?)

Hannah Martin and her horse Painter

Someone called Marlene who lived in Lou’s house who went on a cruise and never came back


Does anyone remember a Facebook group from about 2007 called The Art of Neighbours or something? People would create amazing Neighbours moments using MS paint and upload them to the group. I spent hours on there

Gosh I haven’t watched it since I was very young.

Annalise spending Lou’s money

Jim having a heartattack and Annalise’s mum not calling ambulance but instead his accountant

When Phoebe was on the way to abortion clinic and Todd went after her but got knocked down by a van and died

Cody discovering Debbie having bulimia (I had no idea what bulimia was)

Paul having a baby with one of the twins and the non labouring twin feeling the contractions

Harold going missing and then returning

Carl having the affair

these are what I remember I’m sure lots more I watched it for years but then stopped before it went to channel 5 for some reason
