Quotes

Erica Kane: Getting back at Ryan isn't the answer.
Kendall Hart Cambias: No? Ok. All right, fine. Honestly, tell me this... if your father were still alive, standing here right now, what would you do?
Erica Kane: I'd kill him! But you can't equate Ryan with my father.

This is One of the Greatest Soaps!
23 August 1999 | by (Lockport) – See all my reviews

I have been a fan of All My Children for about 5 years now. I think that this soap is really one of the classics. It has great characters and really great story-lines. I have recently enjoyed the story-line involving Haley, Mateo, and Raquel. I was a little disappointed when they fired Dimitre and most recently Raquel, but I think that whatever happens, the show will stay remain one of the tops in it's field. Please watch this soap daily! You won't be disappointed!
