I was going to give it to Victor with his crack about Vivian’s weird hairdo but then Sami let off a great one. She was just walking through the room as Brady and EJ were talking and she said "Dammit, you two didn’t kill eachother yet!" It was so funny!March 20, 2010 at 9:51 pm #1142453tdogsParticipant
with zingers lately – Kudo’s to the writers! Thank goodness I have a DVR – sometimes I can’t believe what the Salem folks are saying and have to rewind to see if I’m hearing correctly! Sami’s line was priceless – but Victor is still champion of the zingers! I look forward to all of them.
The dialog sounds so much more real these days…one of the Salem Place people on the posts noted that all the actors in the golden oldie days used to parrot what the other actor had said before them – i.e., Bob said to Sally, "Nancy killed Bill in order to remove suspision on Henry", And Sally would say "You are saying Bob, that Nancy was involved in the murder of Bill so Henry wouldn’t go to prison?" And Bob would repeat…"Yes, Nancy…." Cue organ music…DaDAdaDAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa….
Today, it drives me insane when the characters repeat the entire name of a well known cast member – "Phillip Kiriakis – Victor Kiriakis’s son…." We know who Phillip and Victor are – we know they are Kiriakis – stop doing that! It’s distracting from the story line and people really do not speak that way. If there are new viewers the writers are trying to explain the relationship to, the new folks are just going to have to learn who the characters are just like the rest of us did.March 20, 2010 at 10:19 pm #11426macrrParticipant
When Sami said that, I did a double take! If I’m not mistaken, she had just checked on the children. She was standing in the doorway between the two rooms (one with the adults, one with the children), and then uses profanity, like it is perfectly normal to do so while children are present. I couldn’t believe it! But then, many times EJ cusses while he is holding his child(ren). It is disgusting to me.March 21, 2010 at 2:59 pm #11432PattiParticipant
1) Victor asks Anna "are you selling magazines" when she shows up at the door;
2) E.J. tells Sami to put juice boxes on the grocery list, and Brady says to Sami: "Gangster knows best;" (really liked that one a lot);
3) Rafe even got one in when he looked at Arianna’s engagement ring and said: "bet he had to spend a lot of money at the arcade to win this one;" and
4) When the Governor asks Victor to leave him and Anna alone, Victor looks at Anna and says: "didn’t know you were political — talk about strange bedfellows."
Victor’s lines still win hands down, IMO, and he says them with such truism and authority that one would almost believe that it would be natural for him to speak this way in his every-day life.March 21, 2010 at 3:56 pm #11435caseyParticipant
and he greeted her “So if it isn’t Little Orphan Anna.”March 23, 2010 at 7:34 pm #11488BonbonParticipant
adults using bad language in front of their kids. It’s whatever is acceptable to them. The best (and most disgusting to me) example of this is Ozzie and Sharon Osborn. No wonder their kids also have such filthy mouths and don’t seem to be embarassed using it in front of anybody, even on national TV. Sharon using the "F" word on Celebrity Apprentice was inexcusable.March 25, 2010 at 10:07 pm #11553caseyParticipant
He was bleeped out twice and even his daughter seemed a bit shocked.March 25, 2010 at 11:29 pm #11554BonoSugaRayParticipant
Ha! Haa! Yeah, that was totally funny what Vic said to Anna! The writers tend to give ol’ Victor some really good lines, I will admit!March 25, 2010 at 11:29 pm #11555BonoSugaRayParticipant

VP speaking to the President using the "F"bomb on national t.v. in a press conference. If the leaders of our country cannot maintain a decent lingustic decorum and show a degnified personna on t.v. in front of America and it’s children – then where is our country’s standing on the world stage as leaders? Leader’s lead by example, gutter snipes roll in the filth.
The constant dunning down of the entertainment, our educational system and our political dignitaries make it a sure bet that our country will easily become a third world county soon in the next ten to twenty years. You can already see it on our televisions, in our music and little Johnny/Jane certainly cannot read well enough to espress an intelligent view when he/she graduates from our schools.
We are loosing our distinction as the premiere leading country of the world because our people are choosing to become base and common place instead of being uplifting and promoting the higher standard that all Amercians use to aspire to. An English teacher taught my class once that if you have articulate an idea with "cuss" words, you probably cannot carry on an intelligent expression of an argument.March 26, 2010 at 1:46 am #11561GoodyParticipant
You are so correct; I agree with your entire post!!

This is exactly how I was raised and the descent of language in everyday use and on television is shocking.
