If you'd like to be added to the fan list, simply let us know on the thread or PM the thread-starter.
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."


Weronika;
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.

Katherine;
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.

Rinaye;
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?

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!’”


(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.”

You make it sound like we have some special mechanism. It's just planning ahead.

Oh man, I'm .

So the last couple threads went by so quick that we didn't change anything, not even the featured icons.

Hey, what was the mystery favorite Dy/K icon of yours I didn't include in the icon strip thing?

Hee. That was, in part, to color match with Dylan's shirt in the icon almost above. I actually don't much like that "Parental Guidance" moment except for the cute body posturing. Stylistically, it didn't fit in with the others, though. Esp. since I knew I'd include that DD one, which was similar on that point.

But anyway ... oh, hey, you just made that animation, didn't you?

Let me go find the end of the novel excerpts I still haven't read.

Well I'm late for all the good discussion once again
but I still have to comment

And in one of the BH annuals , they have a script excerpt from that page and it says that in that moment, had K asked him to break up with B, he would have. Still doesn't mean, though, that Kelly would have enough faith to trust he'd go through with it once B returned, but that's typical Kelly. Especially scared and lookin' for excuses Kelly. Whom I totally love for it, don't get me wrong.
Now...oh I so *want* to believe you, and Dylan! because I do love Dylan, really I do, but maybe I'm just too far stuck in Kelly's head in this situation.

Quote:
I think when he said to Kelly that he would tell Brenda he didn't really mean it as such, I think he just put it out there to see her reaction .. I don't think he was really thinking clearly at that stage. Sure he developed deep feelings for the girl but he still had deep feelings for Brenda, if he didn't I think he would have broken up with Brenda shortly after she came back,

This is totally how I saw it too. I really didn't believe that he actually would tell Brenda....well he would if he had said he would, because dylan is a man of his word, but I don't think he really wanted too. I think that moment at the welcome back party for brenda when brenda and kelly come down the stairs and dylan is at the door (this may be just the way the camera shot it) but I totally didn't see Dylan even *notice* Kelly! He just had this huge smile for Brenda, and in that moment I think all of Kelly's fears were confirmed. She was thinking she was right, in that moment he isn't thinking of her, and doesn't even *see* her.... I was ready to cry for her at that stage. We do see the "bye" moment, where he looks at her, but just seeing him with brenda, making out and all that, i could see how much he missed B, and still loved her. I didn't see him thinking about K at all, until they are at the beach again the next day. and even then it seemed more as him, feeling sorry for K, checking up on her, but still not anywhere near prepared to leave B at that time.

then there is of course the "you made it happen" he says to kelly....but...hmm I don't know.

Now once again...I do love Dylan and I know he had feelings for K, but I think he was a very confused boy

Well that's okay because - check it out, man - I missed an earlier passage.

Quote:
********
Kelly and Dylan stood for a long time watching the baby sleep. Kelly didn't understand why, but watching Erin sleep was hypnotic and infinitely interesting. She and Dylan wound up swaying together at the side of the crib in time to the soft measure of Erin's breathing.
"So, you want to see the end of Casablanca?" Dylan asked.
Kelly did, but it was late and telling Dylan to go home was becoming more difficult with each passing moment.
"Can you leave it?" Kelly asked. "I'll bring it to the beach tomorrow and you can return it to the video store. Or I can return it."
"Whatever," Dylan said, and shrugged. He seemed to be a little disappointed.
Kelly was sorry about that, but she felt Brenda's presence again. She was already disapproving. Dylan staying longer would only make matters worse.
Kelly allowed Dylan to give her a peck on the cheek before he left. After he was gone, she leaned against the front door for a while and wondered why life had to be so complicated.
Afterward she went upstairs and watched the end of Casablanca. Dylan was right - it didn't matter that the movie was in black and white. Casablanca had to be the most romantic movie ever made. While she got ready for bed Kelly thought about herself, Brenda, and Dylan in relation to the characters in the film. Would Brenda give her the letters of transit and allow her and Dylan to go off together because it was the right thing to do? Would Kelly allow Dylan and Brenda to go off? Was real life ever romantic enough? Kelly decided that it wasn't, took one last look at Erin, and went to sleep on the couch in the den.
The next morning Kelly returned the Casablanca tape and drove to the beach club. The day was beautiful and Kelly's mind was preoccupied with enjoying it. At the beach club, she found Dylan in the restaurant eating breakfast and she joined him for coffee and a bagel.
"Thanks for keeping me company last night," she said.
"Here's looking at you, kid," Dylan said in his Bogart voice, and took a sip of his coffee.
Despite the salute Dylan just made with his coffee, he wouldn't look her in the eye; she found that she couldn't look him in the eye either. Something had changed between them. She felt close to him in a way she never had before, and the feeling scared her a little. It seemed that despite her best efforts, she and Dylan were doing something behind Brenda's back. They weren't doing much yet, but if they didn't both use a great deal of self-control, they would be doing more.
After breakfast they went onto the sand and did some stretching exercises to prepare for their next tournament volleyball game. They poked the ball up and back at each other over the net of an empty court.
But when they saw their opponents were Brooke and Steve, Kelly and Dylan gave up all hope of winning and they goofed their way through the game. They weren't much of a challenge for Brooke and Steve, but the situation would not have been much different had Kelly and Dylan played their best.
The outcome was clear from the start, and by the time they finished all four of them were laughing hysterically. Steve got even bigger laughs when he pretended to be astonished that he and Brooke had won.
Steve offered to buy a round of soft drinks for everyone, and the four of them toasted the victory. Steve suggested that Dylan stick to surfing, and Dylan offered to give Steve lessons. Steve declined because he felt that playing against the ocean was a mug's game. Besides, Steve liked a sport where he could have a partner. He smiled meaningfully at Brooke.
Kelly thought this was all pretty entertaining because she could see by the way that Brooke was acting that she considered Steve to be no more than a friend. He was going to get hurt if he didn't wake up pretty soon, but Kelly could count on Steve to ignore the obvious till it punched him in the stomach.
Shortly, Dylan announced that he had things to do and stood up. He glanced fondly at Kelly for a moment then suddenly walked away, leaving her frustrated with him and with herself.

*******
Plus, the show ends good.

Agreed.

I agree that you can tell he missed Brenda, and the moment on the stairs I think he does notice Kelly but notices Brenda more if you know what I'm saying, but he does stare at her quite deeply later on, I think it was actual shock to see Brenda and realise he did miss her and still loved her. Luckily he realised he loved Kelly more as S3 went on

Very confused. He had two girls who loved him.

Oh, wow.

A slight amendment to what I said earlier. I can picture him wanting to tell B and be with K the way his mindset is before his gf gets back into town. Then after, I can imagine him confused about which is best, still wanting K and being fearful of B's reaction to the truth, but I still think that had Kelly ever outright consented to him coming clean and letting the chips fall ... he would have. Dylan was annoyed to hell with the idea of playing games, so why would he be bluffing to Kelly? And I'll reiterate something for the audience, since my last post on this is now lost at the end of thread 66: Why would he just want to get a reaction from her ... if not to get her to admit she wants to be with him, which would itself demand that he break up with B? And, to quote Dylan , "Have you ever known me to say something I didn't mean?"

Don't mind the repeats.
Quote:

Yeah , I remember thinking that for Kelly. But see, I thought that was what Kelly thought, not necessarily Dylan. I thought he was just being careless, but not purposefully so (unless you theorize that he was trying to make K jealous /rub it all in her face). His behavior towards B could not change if him and K were to keep things a secret, and that was her wish.

In his "Good night, Kel" staredown, I thought for sure he was sending her a message.

Quote:

That's what I'm saying. Though it could be construed as him liking the transfer of responsibility if he were having doubts about them.

Quote:

Yeah, I got a bit of that.

Re: the Casablanca thing, I'm really gonna have to make it a point to see this movie. I remember they put it on tv a couple years after these D/K eps aired and I tried to watch it but just couldn't get into it.

Same reason I tried to watch that marlon brando..or was it james dean? (I'm hopeless with old movies) the one where they are at the observatory? is that a movie or am i making this up?

you know I never, thoughout the whole thing ever saw anything Dylan did as a way of him trying to make her jealous. Don't know why, I always thought Dylan was "above" that. "I don't do things to get back at people". The guy is just full of moral quotes isn't he


Quote:

oh definitely! I'm just still not sure exactly what the message was

Quote:

yeah, he did seem to do that a bit. Dylan (in this season anyway) just seemed so sure of himself, like confident in his words, his beliefs etc, that's one of the things that made me like him so much. I can't think of a time when he was lost for words, or someone caught him off guard? well except after one of Kelly's kisses of course

I re-posted the comparison in the last thread. Did you see it?

"Rebel Without A Cause"/James Dean, which I watched as a teen for the same Dy/K reasons and hated it. I should probably re-watch that as well.
Quote:

*bells!* I thought so too. ... Well, until S5.

Quote:

That's what we're all here for. To decipher the hidden messages, LOL. As gigantic a fan I am, I feel like I need to re-watch everything in the full context of the episodes. Plus, it would be embarrassing to miss any anvils dropped.
Quote:

It's the whole thinking for yourself/not doing things to appease others angle, perhaps. You couldn't manipulate Dylan and he wasn't into treating others that way either. But back to Kelly, LOL ... oh yes, the kiss that took him off guard. I think we all know what you're talking about. He looks like he all but saw god afterwards. And all Kelly can do is look at him like, 'Oh, no ... '.

Yeah I saw it thanks! I just need to see it myself I think. I want more heavy in-depth detail and to see how I think the movie links to this DK summer situation more specifically

that's it! 90210 made me "attempt" to watch all these classics and I still couldn't understand them, dylan would be so disappointed in me I will try again tho. Although now that most video's at "video stores" are becoming extinct I don't know how, have they put any of those old movies on to dvd?


Quote:

well seeing as the only season I currently have is season 3 on dvd, don't you worry I'm watching it over and over to be sure to catch any tidbits we've missed haha



as for that kiss...and well a lot of D/K kisses...ah they just got so lost in each other.....and I got lost watching them get lost in each other captivating!
