Mackenzie: What does this mean - "wedding vows"?
J.T.: Oh, Brittany wants me to help her write hers.
Mackenzie: She wants you to help her?
J.T.: Yeah, don't start, all right? Give it back. Come on.
Mackenzie: I'm surprised they're writing their own.
J.T.: What, you didn't think that Bobby knew how to read or write?
Mackenzie: That's mean.
J.T.: Yeah, it's not far from the truth. But don't worry, I'm sure he'll hire whoever writes those flyers for the strip club. It'll be, like, the raunchiest vows ever, and I'm sure the minister will probably pass out.

Y&R #1 for 900+ weeks!!
21 June 2006 | by romeoforever95See all my reviews

I have been a longtime viewer of Y&R. Since 1991, i was about 11yrs old, and i was immediately hooked. Watching "Victor" drive his car off the cliff, and everyone thought he was dead, meanwhile living with a new love and center of his life "Hope Adams". He then went on to having a child with this blind woman. Y&R over the years, has become something, that everyone can relate to i believe. After the passing of the well respected and beloved "Bill Bell", Y&R still kept their heads high, and delivered the finest in daytime television. Y&R, now recently claiming the title of "America's #1 Daytime Drama", has for the last couple years for me, been the best well poised and presented Soap on the networks. Hence the #1 title. Most fans of the show can visit the official Y&R site www.theyoungandtherestless.com This is one show, that over the years, have proved themselves time and time again, to be the best, and the most respected. The combination of lust, mixed with life expectancies, and life collaboration, has made this show unlike no other. I am a Y&R FAN4LIFE. Would luv to claim the #1 fan title, but there as u know, are many many fans who would claim to be the #1 fan of the show. But they are my on screen family, of 14yrs, i have watched them grow, and change into something, that i am oh so proud of now. I would love the honor of meeting the cast and crew someday, but for now, just watch the show....and experience the uniqueness for yourself!!!
