Trivia

In April 1995, the show was setting up a storyline in which one character planned to set off a bomb at the wedding of two other characters. When the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma was destroyed by a bomb on April 19, producers immediately cancelled the storyline. They appeared at the beginning of one episode to explain their decision. See more »

Quotes

Kendall Hart Cambias: No way. A kiss on the boo-boo and that makes it all better? How the hell could she be so patronizing?
Ryan Lavery: This is not the time...
Kendall Hart Cambias: No, no, really, how can she do this to Bianca? After this pretty little show. She'll have her prefect baby, her perfect marriage, and her perfect life, and what the hell will Bianca have?
Bianca Montgomery: Kendall, it's all right.
Kendall Hart Cambias: No, Bianca, it really isn't all right. She's not doing this to ease your pain. She's doing this to cover her own pathetic guilt. Isn't that right, Babe? Isn't ...

This is One of the Greatest Soaps!
23 August 1999 | by brniis77See 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!
