Notes: Though it's not 100% confirmed, flashbacks (beginning on January 5, 1978) of Maher as Brooks were used to wrap up the Sven story. Horton may have played Brooks on January 2 and 4 prior to the flashbacks. In order not to confuse the audience, Horton was dismissed and Maher resumed the role very briefly. It is likely that following this, Horton was not brought back, and at this time, Tillinger was hired for the role. Brooks was last referenced by Rachel in March of 1998.
