Also, Phil, (I hope you won't take umbrage if I say this) but you seem to be confusing the name of Emily Symons, who was in 'Home and Away' and 'Emmerdale' with that of Emily Simons, who was in 'Eastenders'. They are two different actresses.
lol, I don't think Phil wants anything to do with Emily Symons or Emily Simons, from his react its sounds like one of them has refused his advances and he's a bit miffed (JOKE!!!)

Emily Symons was in both Emmerdale (318 episodes) and Home & Away (1,770 episodes)

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0843381/

Rita Simons played Roxy Mitchell in Eastenders (973 episodes)

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm1910809/

Isla Fisher played Shannon Reed in 390 episodes of Home & Away and is married to Sacha Baron Cohen who played Ali G & Borat

I hope that makes everything clear

Thankfully I don't have to watch any soaps these days, haven't watched 'depressedenders' since the last century. I do remember seeing Angie Watts in a black PVC mac and I think her daughter Sharon in a jelly jacket when she was a teenager?

For Susan Kennedy in a yellow Mac for muck up day, it’s neighbours episode 4831

There was also a scene from home and away when Marilyn was looking after Alf’s store and Cynthia thought she was wearing too little and was therefore indecent. She made Marilyn put on a yellow pvc slicker over the top of her clothes.

Ooooh, thanks for all the info, would be great to find the clip of Marilyn in her 'slicker'. In a previous post I mentioned a nurse in a raincoat in Young Doctors, I think I was wrong, it should have been Shortland Street.

The American hospital drama St. Elsewhere featured rainwear on the odd occasion, a quick search found this still, I remember the coat features quite prominently in at least one episode

EDIT

Just found a low quality piece on You Tube

Re home and away, I misremembered the characters name. Should be Celia not Cynthia. But have managed to narrow down the episode by this

Celia Stewart played by Fiona Spence made her first on-screen appearance on 26 January 1988 and remained until 20 April 1990.

Hope it helps!

if my memory serves me well it was on five days a week, most weeks of the year, so that's probably narrowed it to 500 or so episodes, could be needle in a haystack time

I think it might have been shown on a Wednesday or Thursday, hope that helps

If you search for Home and away - Episode 1875 on YouTube there are 2 videos at the very top listed as pt2. The 1st one with image from scene of isla fisher in green raincoat is pt2 but the 2nd one is part 1 of that episode and contains 3 scenes of isla in the raincoat! (Shorter scenes though)
