All My Children Best Lines Friday 7/22/11

Tad: It's not really much of a yard sale. There's not all that much to sell. The fact is Dixie's father--Seabone--yeah, he passed away. And before he did, he made sure that somebody--I don't know who it was--sent me a bunch of Dixie's childhood stuff from pigeon hollow. I was looking through it, and it's pretty powerful stuff. There's a lot of memories. But more importantly, the reason you guys are here is...there are memories that I've been living with, trying to make sense of, wrestle to the ground for a long time. And I think--I think I should pack them up, make my peace, and put them away. And the only way to do that is to--to publicly honor and remember the woman I loved so long and so well, you know-- chicken suit and all.

Opal: Oh. Chicken suit! Ha! At least you had the legs for it.

Tad: Ma, do me a favor. Just don't heckle me, ok? This is hard enough as it is. I don't know where to start or how to start, but I good a place as any is the day all those years ago that I was in myrtle's dress shop and this young girl walked in, and she had really long, beautiful, golden hair and sky blue eyes. And she just started talking to me and she smiled, and then... the world kind of lit up. And after that, nothing else was ever the same.

Tad: I'll give you that much. And as all of you know, Dixie's favorite song was "you are my sunshine," and that's always got me. She used to sing it all the time. She would whistle it to herself, and more importantly, she would sing it to J.R. And it was an amazing thing to watch her with him. And every time she sang that song, I swear she could pull me back from anything. It was magic, and I still see that magic every day--every time I look in Kathy's eyes or I hear her laugh. I'm gonna do everything I possibly can to keep that magic alive by being as good a father to Kathy as I know how, and by doing whatever I have to to convince my little boy J.R. That no matter how many mistakes he makes, he is still my son. And he will always be every bit the man that his mother dreamed he would be someday. More importantly, I think that's why I guess I'm willing to say good-bye. Because Dixie always taught me what it took, what it meant, what a miracle it was to have the chance to be a father and a husband, and I hope I'm always willing. I hope to god I never stop learning.

Krystal: Oh, that was so sweet.

Tad: Thanks, babe.

Opal: Oh, my boy!
