Notes: Flashbacks (beginning on January 9, 1978) of Maher as Brooks were used to wrap up the Sven story. Horton played Brooks prior to the flashbacks. In order not to confuse the audience, Horton was dismissed and Maher resumed the role very briefly. Afterwards, Horton was not brought back and Tillinger was hired for the role. Brooks was last referenced by Rachel on March 6, 1998. Brooks retired as the chauffeur for the Corys in 1982.
