Today’s TV Addict Top 5: Most Unforgettable ALL MY CHILDREN Storylines!

Ask 100 fans of the long-running soap ALL MY CHILDREN — which airs its final episode on ABC this afternoon before relocating to the Internet in January 2012 — to name their favorite moment, and you’re likely to get at least 97 different responses. But here are our five favorite storylines, in no particular order. Check ’em out, then go to the comment section and tell us yours!
 
Phoebe Tyler pretends to be paralyzed in order to prevent hubby Charles from leaving her for Mona Kane, the mother of the infamous Erica Kane.
 
A jealous suitor’s attempt to steal Jenny Gardner away from her true love, Greg Nelson, takes a tragic turn when the brunette beauty (played by ARMY WIVES’ Kim Delaney) dies on a rigged-to-blow jet ski!
 
Palmer Cortlandt does everything in his power to keep naïve daughter Nina from being with dashing Dr. Cliff Warner. A highlight? The revelation that her gal pal “Monique” is actually her not-as-dead-as-believed mom, Daisy… and Palmer’s maid, Myra, is Nina’s grandma!
 
Tad Martin earns his nickname “Tad the Cad” by sleeping with vixen Liza Colby… and her mom, Marian, who was a cougar long before cougars were cool!
 
In a stunningly complex story spanning both AMC and ONE LIFE TO LIVE, gal pals Babe and Bianca go into labor at the same time and are the victims of a double baby switch. Babe’s child is given to OLTL’s Kelly (whose own newborn had died), while Bianca is left to believe that her own child (now being raised by an oblivious-at-first Babe) is dead. The story became controversial after Babe, realizing the truth, opted to allow Bianca to believe her child dead for many months.

    #3 was an awesome period on the show.

    Also loved “carny” Langley wooing Phoebe, and Myrtle knowing the truth.  All 3, such great actors.

    I’ve been watching since Kate Martin waved good goodbye out her front door.  Remeber the Tornado that his PV?  Noah & Julia? Edmund & Maria?  Luv the young Kendall when she first came to town, and gave Erica & Dimitri some hard times.  I will miss AMC, and will watch on line, but the experience won’t be the same.

    My favorite AMC storylines are : Jenny and  Jesse in NYC, Tad realizing he wasn’t Ted and reuniting with Dixie, Adam hiding Stuart in the “west wing”, Palmer trying to keep Cliff from Nina, and Brooke going to jail from refusing to name her source

    i remember #5!!! but now i am happy both Miranda and AJ are both happy and healthy and safe with Marissa and Bianca!!! #Minx

  • Most memorable storyline? For me, that’s Tad & Dixie’s love story. I was only a little kid in their heyday. What I endured began in 1998 when Dixie returned from Pigeon Hollow, WV. They didn’t have the best plots (more psychos & adultery involving David and Leslie), but her heart condition and her pregnancy in 1999 stand out the most. Also very special was when Dixie returned in ghost formed and haunted Adam. Dixie & Tad had an entire episode of what life would have been like if things were normal and Kate/Kathy was never missing. That episode showed the magic that they are. The best of their story is definitely their first one with them falling in love back in 1988-89. I’ve seen clips from back then, and I love that they started out as friends.

    I think some of the best acting was done by Eden Riegel during the rape story line…so scary and so heartbreaking. All of the people during that time were outstanding. I also liked when Phoebe was being wooed by Wade Matthews. That was fun. Adam and Stuart together were awesome. David Canary was AWESOME doing a dual role. And Erica in pretty much anything.

  • Martythepartygirl

    When Janet from another Planet really lost it and killed Trevor and put “Uncle Porkchops” in the freezer.

  • LadySnake

    #1 I always loved Phoebe…she was the ultimate daytime diva/beeyotch but I also loved her comeuppance when Lenny Wlasik/Prof Langley Wallingford conned her and they both ended up falling in love with each other & getting married.

    I rememeber watching as a kid during the late 90’s. Julia/Noah, Hayley/Mateo and Ryan/Gillian were my faves. Sad to see this go.
