Yeah I'm still waiting for Dru to come back to Y&R - no body. :D Although sometimes they manage to bring people back even though there is a body. My least favorite cliche? How about going back to your ex? Sure it happens in real life, but mostly it doesn't. Or at least it doesn't last.

I was so happy when As The World Turns Finally "killed off" James. There Was a body but.... he came back and I left. I haven't been back since. I like it when the show's Romeo and Juliet are reunited. On each soap there is one couple that Needs to be together.

I'm sure Dru will be back. And isn't it funny how Neil just can't seem to want to stay in a relationship since she's been gone?

1. a good character will get hurt or have an accident, bump his head but not die - he'll just lose his memory. 2. evil character will either die or end up in a mental institution. 3. a huge explosion as season ender. cliches!

OR how about the one where they "get killed" and while later re-appear with amnesia.. they think they are someone else...and someone that knows them finds them etc. It is always a rich person that looses memory and then is shown working a blue collar, low income job and don't know they are a millionaire. But of course, that low income job of course becomes a highly sucessful business and that is often how they are "found".

The overbearing, controlling father who always has to have control over everything his kids do. On some occasions they do have have a mother in this role.
