Today's Best Lines come from a special 50th Anniversary episode of As the World Turns spotlighting what the families of Oakdale would be life if they were 50's sitcoms.
Casey: Five bucks. First paycheck.
Will: I swore you'd be working the whole time.
Casey: But I knew with all the old videos here, you would totally be up watching some old black and white movie.
Gwen: But this is a sitcom. Neither of you thought of that. I get the five bucks.
Maddie: Oakdale's influential families. I have looked through family histories, all this file footage, and everything is just a blur to me. I mean, there's the stewarts, the hugheses, the snyders, and everybody's mixed up with everybody else. And then there's the police reports. I mean, do you know how many upstanding people in this town have actually served time? It's out of control.
Gwen: Hey, who's that?
Casey: The Snyders.
Maddie: Okay. Show me the funny.
Will: Well, there's two ways we could go about it.
Casey: Yeah, but don't do the whole family tree, 'cause that'll freak her out.
Maddie: This is great, I get it now. Everything that I write about Holden and Lily makes sense, except I read somewhere that Holden was Lily's uncle, which had to have been a misprint.
Casey: No. That's the Snyder family stuff we didn't want to spring on you.
Will: Yeah, Lily's mom is Emma's daughter.
Gwen: Wait a minute, so Lily and Holden hooked up and then found out that he was her uncle?
Maddie: Oh, that is just so inbred, I can't even speak.
Casey: No, it wasn't like that. Lily's biological mom's adopted, so they weren't related at all.
Casey: But Meg married Lily's biological father.
Maddie: Okay, I need a candy bar. Do you need a candy bar?
Gwen: Okay, okay. Okay, okay, okay. Scheming blonde, devoted to her husband, willing to do anything for him. Always lands in trouble, but somehow gets away with it.
Maddie: I have it!
[ "I Dream of Jeannie" theme plays ]
Gwen: Oh, you're right, anything can be funny. Even your family.
Will: No way. If my family were a sitcom, they would have jumped the shark a decade ago.
Casey: You said it yourself, man. It's either laugh or scream.
Will: With them, it's scream all the time. They're a horror movie, not a sitcom.
[ "The Munsters" theme plays ]
Gwen: No, Will.
Casey: Very fitting.
Barbara: How was your day at the morgue?
Hal: Well, I hate to say it, but work was dead.
[ Laughter ]
Barbara: Oh, don't be discouraged. One thing about spring, it's a wonderful time for homicides.
Cop: All right, that's helpful. All we need now is a license number for the hit and run driver.
Henrietta: Hit and run? Really? That's what you're calling it?
Cop: You said you got the number?
Henrietta: Sure, sure, sure. Eight, six, seven, five, three, oh nine.
