There's really no reason to be shy because "the only person you need permission from ... is yourself."

:Rules: We welcome all new fans, old fans, multi-shippers, and Dy/K-curious posters. However, bashing of any kind/posting on this thread as a means to collect evidence against our couple for another will not be accepted. Please read the official board rules for clarification on this and other matters, such as staying on topic and not double-posting. Normal criticism from those who love Dylan and Kelly together is of course an exception. We know they aren't infallible, but we love them. And they loved each other.

"She was the only beauty ... the only inspiration left in his life."

Your lover is your best friend, the person with whom you confide all your secrets and dreams. It’s a love that can lift you up and make you the best version of yourself. Dylan and Kelly are soulmates and lovers. He'll always have a piece of her soul. And Kelly will always be the love of his life.

When Dylan McKay and Kelly Taylor finally got together, I was the happiest teeny-bopper on earth! Even before the third season, I just knew that Dylan had a thing for Kelly and vice versa. Maybe it was the way they looked at each other in the hallways or just the incredible chemistry that Luke and Jennie had on the show. Whatever it was, I was hooked. Imagine my surprise and elation when Kelly revealed that she and Dylan had had a flirtation prior to the Walshes moving to Beverly Hills. I knew it hadn’t just been my fertile, adolescent, Harlequin Romance-induced imagination! And when the writers decided to hook them up in what I now affectionately dub as “The Summer of Love”, all was right in my teenage world again.

In the immortal words of Steve Sanders, Dylan and Kelly didn’t fit yet somehow they did fit. She started out as a superficial snob who only seemed to care about keeping up appearances and material things, while he was the quintessential poor little rich boy, an existentialist at a very young age who, ironically, didn’t care much for his wealthy, Beverly Hills trappings.

If it hadn’t been for their relationships with Brandon and Brenda, I don’t think that Dylan and Kelly would have fully learned to appreciate what they had with each other. They learned to accept who they were, what they had, and where they came from. And as hard as they tried to deny their connection by falling for other people, dating other people, even marrying other people, it was inevitable that they would end up together in the end. People say that opposites attract, but not in this case. Dylan and Kelly are two halves of one whole. All those years of searching ... little did they know that what they were searching for was right underneath their nose.

It was 1990 when I first indulged on the show that is Beverly Hills 90210. That wouldn’t seem strange except … I was only about two years old at the time. I didn’t remember too much of the show, having the short attention span of a toddler, but oddly enough I did remember one event particular: the unification of Dylan McKay and Kelly Taylor.

As the show progressed, I watched, not fully understanding the depth of the young adult drama. When I came of age, I became more interested in understanding the show and the couple that was Kelly and Dylan. I began tuning in on marathons of reruns as well as the final season of the series. Episode after episode, I found myself becoming more captivated by them. I soon noticed an amazing love story was unfolding before my eyes.

Though I initially saw their summer affair as careless, I must admit it was undeniably romantic. I understood the situation the two were in and recognized how strong their feelings actually were. Over time, the couple experienced life and love. Most times, they were apart. But even when they weren’t together, the underlying emotions between them remained untouched. Dylan and Kelly had an unbreakable bond founded on friendship, passion and, most of all, love. It was believable because of the history they shared. They grew up together and ultimately grew in love. If you look beyond the surface, you can see the classic love story: boy meets girl, boy is torn between two, and finally boy and girl fall in love.

That was a lot to read. Why not take a music break? :dj:

S1 DVD Interviews w/ Luke Perry and Jennie Garth:

LP on Dylan: “He has a very strong sense of himself. […] Everyone thinks that when you’re a senior in high school, ‘That’s it, man. This is your last chance. You gotta …’ Everything that happens to you your senior year defines you as a person. That’s not true, and I think that my boy’s real aware of that. And I think that’s important. I think that allows him to look deeper into people, right away, and see them for WHO they are, not WHAT they are and what status symbol they represent in school. And thusly, that’s one of the things that separates him from people. He sees how people are separated from each other … whether they do or not.”

JG on Kelly: “She’s very complex. She has a lot of insecurities that deal with if people like her and whether or not she’s strong enough to handle everything that’s going on in her life. […] She tries to keep herself looking cool and looking together for everyone else’s benefit. But when she goes home, it’s her quiet time and she really tries to deal with her feelings.”

LP: “A lot of people tune in and they look at the title – it’s ‘Beverly Hills, 90210’. They think it’s all glamour and flash, you know? Cause we have beautiful girls like Jennie on the show. They think that. And that’s true – to some extent. But also, we get down and we look and we see what’s going on, and we try to address it. We want to raise the questions.”

S3 DVD Commentary w/ Charles and Karen Rosin:

CR: “It wasn’t the reason to go forward with this [making Dy/K a couple], of course. The reason was, though, um … Luke Perry came into my office. I always made it at the end of the season that the actors could come and tell me what they like or didn’t like, and he said, ‘Can’t I start doing stuff with [Jennie]?’ […] So I remember calling in Steve [Wasserman] and Jessica [Klein] and said, ‘Can we make this work? Can we change it up?’ And Steve Wasserman, who unfortunately has passed away, had, you know, great enthusiasm and just went, ‘YES! Let’s do it!’” :yay:

(Re: Dy/K talking at the Peach Pit in “Home and Away”)

CR: “And this is a beautiful – the theme of the abandoned father. And this was – this was also a third year episode called ‘Senior Poll’, written by Chip Johannessen, who has gone on to do some really terrific shows.”
KR: “He was a very good writer.”
CR: “He did the ‘Princeton Boys to Men’, he did the dance with the High School violence, and of course that wonderful scene.”

(Re: Dy/K in the pool, “Back In the High Life”)

CR: “Maybe the most – the sexiest scene we ever did.”

(Re: Dy/K hugging at Graduation, right after she sees her father, “Commencement”)

KR: “You always appreciated it when we could, um, sort of illuminate the underlying psychological make-up of a character without …”
CR: “Hitting it on the head.”
KR: “Yeah.”

E! True Hollywood Story, 2001:

Narrator, 52 min. in: “As in the previous year, FOX execs programmed new episodes of 90210 during the Summer of 1992. The plan kept viewers hooked on the kid’s vacation misadventures, including Brenda and Donna’s trip to Paris. But the juiciest news was that while Brenda had a fling in Europe, her on-again off-again sweetheart, Dylan, and best friend, Kelly, finally gave into temptation.”

TV Guide, 10/04/92, p.10:

“Cheers to the zip returning to one of TV’s better known zip codes, Beverly Hills, 90210. While the new season has spawned a haphazard host of 90210 knockoffs, none can compare to the original, now in its third year. Sure, the Fox hour went through some tepid times last season (the terrible twos), but now the tempest is back in the teen-pot, thanks mostly to the stormy romance between Dylan (Luke Perry) and Kelly (Jennie Garth).”

TV Guide, ‘Jennie Garth: From the Heart’, 4/08/95, Mary Murphy, p.13:

“We have a dynamic relationship. Either we get along famously or we hate each other’s guts. […] Today it was up and down: ‘I hate you’. ‘I love you’. ‘I hate you’.”

“Off-camera, Garth says that Perry is possessive of her attention. ‘Our relationship is stormy, to say the least’, she says. ‘Luke doesn’t like it when I do scenes with Jason. It’s that ego thing.’”

“He’s wonderful. Once you are kissing Luke (Perry, character Dylan), it is all you can think about.”

Sassy Magazine, 'Jennie Garth Rebuffed My Rice Krispies Advances', 4/?/95, p.44:

"I told her she and Luke seem to have really good chemistry. 'And we know it. And his girlfriend knows it and my boyfriend knows it. But we work together, you know ...'"

Our Favorite Moments, 1998:

JG: “I love working with Luke. He and I are like buddies."

Reunion Special, 2003:

LP: “Jennie and I have sent each other to the hospital on a fairly regular basis. And this is off-camera. Um … (Jennie laughs) I wanted to mention that. I ran her over with a jet-ski once. I hit her in the head, knocked her unconscious. Out, in the water, a bodyguard dove in, fished around … pulled Jennie up like a drowned cat. Paramedics came, the whole deal. She sprayed Binaca in my eye one time (Jennie laughs). … There were some bumps and bruises. I knocked her down. Again, someone had to go to the emergency room … “

LP: “And Jennie and I were in the swimming pool on top of the Bel Age Hotel, and we were supposed to be swimming and talking and kissing. I remember us being in the swimming pool and all the crew had on winter coats. So what I was doing was trying to hold her close to me, and stay, ya know, really warm (Jennie playfully smacks his arm), and … and, um …

JG: “What are you saying?!”

LP: “I’m just saying, it - that I’m warmer when you’re close to me than I am when you’re not (he playfully hugs her) [...]."

LP: “We were getting invited to the White House. Um, you know, crazy stuff. Fidel Castro got a satellite dish cause he had a crush on Jen …” (she playfully hits him).

OK! Magazine Blog for 'Dancing With The Stars', 10/23/07:

JG: “I would do anything for Tori and she would do anything for me in a heartbeat. You don’t have that bond with people very often. I have that with Tori and Luke Perry and Ian Ziering. Those are the people that I grew up with – they’re my soul siblings.”

New York Times, ‘Thank You, ZIP Code of My Dreams, For an Emotion-Packed Decade’, 5/?/00, Eleni N. Gage:

“From ‘Peyton Place’ to ‘Passions’, the tradition of soap opera is to have teenage conflicts rooted in class issues. But the entire 90210 gang, with the exception of the intellectual Andrea, was incredibly wealthy, making wrong-side-of-the-tracks issues moot. Dylan didn’t choose Kelly over Brenda because she had fancier clothes or a cabana closer to the sea at the beach club, but because they had sympatico psyches [...] I realize that 90210 is fictional, but occasionally I forget. A few weeks ago, Dylan said to Kelly, “This is the second time I’ve seen you in a wedding dress to marry a man who isn’t me.” Tears sprang to my eyes. I declared, ‘I want them to be together so much that I’d rather have them get married than meet my own soulmate.’ (A friend of mine instantly commanded, ‘Take it back.’)”

The View, 2000:

Lisa Ling: “So, I have to ask you – are Kelly and Dylan going to be reunited for the final episode?”
JG: “Yeah. It’s good. It’s kind of like a ‘full circle’ sort of thing where they come all this way and finally find their way back to each other.”
Lisa Ling: “Yay!”

Star, ‘90210 Over and Out’, 4/18/00, Stephen Viens:

“But even that is nothing compared to the last scene. Dylan and Kelly resolve their love triangle and commit to each other as they dance together at the wedding party. The last words ever spoken on the show will be when he asks her to dance, adding that if she wanted to wait she could wait. “I don’t want to. Not anymore”, Kelly replies as the couple slowly dance around the floor to their song, leaving no doubt that they’ve finally gotten together forever.”

Thanks for starting!

playgroundDiaries 06-28-2008 05:06 PM

No problem. I'm in an ambitious mood. :lol: I have everything we've been talking about doing here still in mind.

Quotage from "Ode to Joy":

M: “I saw you … and Dylan. Heard your readings. I’m glad I did. Cause now I realize that the connection you guys have - it isn’t unhealthy, after all. I don’t know how I could have missed it, although I was probably just too scared to look. Standing there in back of the church listening to you talk about loving with – what was it – the breath, smiles, and tears of life? Even I couldn’t miss that.“

K: “I’m sorry.”

M: “Don’t be. It’s why I came here today … to tell you I think you made the right choice.”

Shall I reshuffle the featured icons? I'll wait for several responses.

KellylovesDylan 06-28-2008 05:15 PM

I love that scene. Matt finally comes to his senses and out of denial.

Sure you can. That'd be cool. :)

playgroundDiaries 06-28-2008 05:31 PM

OH! I almost forgot. Good 'small moments' news. Right after Steve announces Tamia for Dd/D's first wedding song ("Spend My Life With You"), you can spot Dylan and Kelly in the next frame in the weeee back, to the left, and Kelly had clearly reached up and put a hand on Dylan's face. Then you see him take it down (in a loving, not rejecting, way). Next up is their handplay under the table which we get to actually see.

KellylovesDylan 06-28-2008 05:35 PM

OMG I never noticed that! I need to put in my dvd and check that out right now! That's sooo adorable!! I need to pay more attention to the background of things!!

playgroundDiaries 06-28-2008 05:45 PM

It's not you. I just did a cavity search of the scene after 8 long years. LOL. I obviously hadn't noticed either. We don't know if it's a moment that was written in and filmed, then cut (in cu form) in the editing room, or if that was just Luke/Jennie getting emotional that it was the last episode. Like they did in that candid shot of them on the dance floor.

KellylovesDylan 06-28-2008 05:55 PM

I'm happy either way. I've seen scenes that have been edited out from that episode. Donna and her mother's scene before she gets married, Val visiting the guys before the wedding, and David asking Dylan to be his best man. Unless that one just got cut and was never shown anywhere, I'm leaning more towards that being a Luke/Jennie thing.

On a random note---I just taught my dog to sit in French---I just needed to share that with someone, because I'm so proud! :lol:

Jaime Bee 06-28-2008 06:05 PM

Yeah, I really need to check and see if I kept my original copy of that episode.

What can I say? You are a papillion-training god. :lol:

Wow, you remember what kind of dog I had! I'm impressed. :lmao: I forgot that I even told you. :rotfl: But it is true, I am the only one that can train this dog. Others have tried, and they all have failed. ;)

You should check. FX use to cut out everything, maybe when it originally aired they showed these missing scenes. I have noticed that soapnet puts the cut out scenes back in. I've only watched a few episodes there, but like the prom episode with D/K that scene was longer than I have on my pirated dvds and my sister's tape, which could have been another FX thing.

Yeah, can you believe it's been over a year with all this fandom? LOL.

They did. I saw them. Long time ago. :ghost:

Um, what was cut of Dy/K at prom in syndication?

:rotfl: Jaime, I know. Not to inflate Court's ego too much here, LOL, but switching into the icon I have now is like the first thing I did this morning. I didn't want to be beaten to it. I want to marry it and have lots of Dy/K babies. I think it's Kelly's jawline along with the flare that adds to the sweetness/sexiness. And what I wrote in my sig, that's not even from anything. It's literally the line that popped into my head when I saw the icon.

Morning girls :wave:

I'm just joking, glad you love my icons.

Btw, I think we should change the Icons in the OP too :nod:
