I was just at www.jumptheshark.com and I wasn't going to admit this , but since we're all grown-ups reading and conversing on the internet about the BSC I'll just admit I was reading The Facts of Life thread. Someone said that Nancy Mckeon refused to do a reunion episode because she didn't want to be Jo anymore.
That got me thinking. If the BSC were to do a reunion as adults, do think any of them wouldn't show up? Like for some reason they wouldn't want to be associated with the club anymore?
I'm thinking Dawn after what I've heard about the CA Diaries although I'll have to read them for myself. And Logan and Shannon since they were just associate members. Maybe Jessi and Mal since they were only in it for a year and moved on to things they felt were more important. Although with Mal being a former charge as well as growing up with the girls, I can see her making an effort to make it to a get together.
My mind is in chaos and its only cure is your banging it against a headboard-Mary Ann, Amsterdam! Amsterdam!
Cool thread, i think you're right about Dawn and the associate members...
Kristy would deffinately show up, in fact, she'll probably be the one that organizes it.
Mary Anne may not want to show up at first, because she's shy... but she'll go in the end since she doesn't want Kristy to get all mad at her.
Stacey & Claudia would have probably have moved on to bigger things and would believe that they're too old for the bsc... but Kristy would eventually beat the crap out of them, convincing them to come.
Jessi... I'm not too sure about... it'll probably depend on how her ballet carear is going at the moment.
Mal would most likely show up too, simply because the bsc was a big part of her life before she went off to boarding school.

Yeah, I'm leaning toward either Stacey or Dawn refusing to show up for a BSC reunion. Stacey would probably be too busy with her own business and Dawn would consider herself too California Cool for the BSC. (BTW, no need to be embarrassed for reading a Facts of Life thread...I used to watch that show all the time and I have the DVD sets that came out awhile back. )
I'm thinking that Abby and Kristy would totally show up. Kristy, because she started the club and Abby because all she will remember is that she was president of it for a while. Yeah, I agree, Stacey probably won't show up because she will be in Europe for a fashion design meeting or something. Dawn won't because she doesn't have a car.
I thought Dawn wouldn't come initially but then again she might come due to her link to Mary Anne, being her stepsister. I don't think Jessi would come... she did not seem as connected to the club, having only been in it for a year and leaving to focus on ballet. I don't think Abby would either, I don't think she ever really fitted into the club... the four original members could turn up and maybe Mallory because her family had such close connections with the other girls' families...
;D Love it! I haven't really thought about this before but I think Kristy would definitely show up. Maybe Mal and Jessi, depending on what is going on in their lives. Abby would, I think, but not sure why. Stacey and Claud are questionable. Not sure about MA. Will have to think more about this. Also, I've never read FF so that might be why I'm not sure exactly how the club ended.

The only I think def wouldn't show up is Stacey. She's already shown time and time again she thinks she's cooler than the rest of the girls. I could see her growing up and refusing to even admit she was in that silly little club or something. I think Dawn would've moved on completely, barely even keeping in touch w/ the girls, but would still show.
Claudia might show up because she and Kristy and Mary Anne were best friends for so long, but I don't think Stacey would. I also think by then, Mary Anne and Dawn would be on permanent bad terms after a stupid blow-up taken too far, so Dawn wouldn't go.
I think Dawn would show up due to her tie to Mary Anne. I know Kristy would show up because she created the whole thing. I think Mallory would as well for some reason as well. The others are hard to say.

I agree with this. Stacey would be too embarrassed to even admit to her cool, sheek adult acquaintances that she was once in a baby-sitting club. It would be much to silly for her to even consider doing a reunion.

"Do a reunion" meaning come back and visit old friends? Kristy, Mary Anne, and Claudia because as someone else said, they've been connected practically since birth. Dawn only if Richard and Sharon stayed married because I don't see her and Mary Anne staying close without a reason. I'll be different and say Shannon. She wouldn't make special travel arrangements or anything, but I could see her swinging by for a cup of coffee if she happened to be in town.
Kristy for sure. I think Stacey would show up just to show off all the success she's had. I'm sure she'll be successful at something... or marry rich. She'll want to show it all off. Let's see... who wouldn't show up. Are we counting Logan? I didn't know he & MA broke up until this board (I'm really behind!), but I'm thinking he'd say hell w/ a reunion.
Ooh... what if it's like a Dawson's Creek final episode and one dies? Who do you think it would be? It would be too cliche to have Kristy die because she was probably the most important BSCer. Maybe Claudia? Nothing ever went her way.
