Jo Ann Willette

Out of all of the people on Just the Ten of Us, my favorite was by far Jo Ann Willette. She played Connie Lubbock.

Why Connie? Perhaps because she was one of the middle kids. Perhaps because she didn’t go ahead and flaunt her body like Wendy or Cindy, and wasn’t a total prude like Marie. Connie was also smart – I like that.

I know, I know: with ten main characters, it seems like a challenge to choose just one favorite. Coach Lubbock is, of course, a great guy as well. But Connie? Number one.

This Ping marks our fourth anniversary!

Happy anniversary, Ping!

I can't remember which one Connie is. I remember the other three you mentioned just fine, but not Connie. Odd.

You'll have to go check out "Cheaper by the Dozen" and pick your favorite from there, too.

Connie was the writer and poet. I'm watching the episode now where they just started their singing career at Danny's Pizza. The reason you might not remember "connie" the best is that she was the least attractive out of the oldest four daughters, in my opinion

You first.

I like the stuck-up religious one who was played by the chick from Nightmare on Elm Street. She had the best line in the entire series: "There's an orgy of understanding!"

Forget Jo Ann...I want Heather Langenkamp...the only reason to sit through a Nightmare on Elm Street movie.

Why so defensive, Paul? It's not like Rob was slamming Saved by the Bell...

Paul: You first.

I don't need to spend $8.50 to see the continuing downward spiral of Steve Martin's career and Hillary Duff disaster. :)

Ah. I found a cast picture somewhere and now I remember Connie enough. I think I remember her having a fairly annoying voice, too.

I remember that I liked Wendy the best. I apologize.

THIS is the best quote from JTTOU ever. It's from Season 2, Episode 2, the one where they are trying to find jobs. Marie(Langenkamp) was the first one to find a job, but it was a volunteer job at a soup kitchen.
ELIZ. So how much does it pay?

MARIE Lots and lots of love.

COACH Love? It pays love? What's the exchange rate of love to dollars?

WENDY Well, in my experience... (nasty looks from COACH and ELIZ.) Nevermind.

Wendy had another great quote, but I don't remember the episode; basically she gets all of the men, and I quote "Because they think i'm loose!"

Connie was my favorite too! I always thought she was the best looking one. I love that show.

What is this then?
