Mom: But it didn't last long. After they were married she got pregnant, but miscarried, and had a nervous breakdown.
SVG: Yeah, then her and Phil divorced and she started having an affair with her mom Mona's best friend Nick. Yuck!! He is way too old for her.
IEG: And what about the song he sang in his nightclub? "Summer Me...Winter Me..."
IEG and SVG burst out laughing.
Dad: Who in the world are you talking about?
SVG: Oh Dad, we're just getting caught up on what has been happening on All My Children.
Dad: Oh for Christ's sake. (rolls his eyes, goes into the living room, opens a can of Heidelberg, and sits down to watch "The Wide World of Sports".)
IEG, SVG and RP again burst out laughing.
This scenario was repeated many different times, and could have included not only All My Children, but also General Hospital or One Life To Live.
(A Few Years Later)
SVG: Hey Dad, did you hear about how Luke raped Laura in the Disco in Port Charles, and Herb Albert's song "Rise" was playing? "Do..do..do..do..do.do......(hums tune to song)
Dad: What? Oh very funny. You and your stupid soap operas. I'm going to Dick's!!
