Quotes

[a semi-hysterical Brooke tries to explain the significance of Babe's pregnancy to Tad and informs him that he may be a grandfather]
Tad: A grandpa? Jamie's pregnant? Boy, there's a medical first.
Brooke: This isn't funny. I just had an up-close-and-personal with Pine Valley's newest cowgirl.
Tad: Uh-huh. Babe managed to rope you in?
[chuckles]
Tad: See what I did there?
Brooke: Stop it. Babe told me that she's pregnant.
Tad: Well, great. That is big news. Why aren't you shrieking at Adam? She's married to HIS son.

greatest soap ever
21 April 2000 | by massivefartSee all my reviews

I have watched All My Children for over five years and the late 70's and early 80's. It is one show if i miss i get really upset. It has some the best actors, writers, and etc. It also has something a few soaps have long running characters they don't stick them in the backburner because some of the best characters are the one's that has been around the longest. My favorite has to Myrtle, Phoebe, Brooke, Adam and Stuart, Palmer Dixie and Tad and of course ERICA KANE she is the one reason i am a faithfull watcher and I never care what critics think because to me it is one of the few soaps that i am faithful to I do watch One Life to Live, Guiding Light. But you can't go wrong with a show that has been around for 30 years and has one more Emmy's than any other soap. Who can't forget the wonderful storylines Nina and Cliff, Angie and Jessie, Erica and Tom, Mike Roy, Adam, Travis, Jackson, and Dimitri, Palmer and Daisy and my favorite off all time Greg and my sweet sweet JENNY. For this is why ALL MY CHILDREN is my #1 soap and keep up the good work
