KAY AND JILL, THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS
Here's the recipe for a good, old-fashioned, nasty feud, courtesy of Y&R. Take two characters who are both in love with the same man - Phillip Chancellor - and don't let the fact that he dies have any impact on their hatred for each other for about the next 20 years. Throw in a fortune and a mansion that were left to Kay, but which Jill has always thought were rightfully hers. Put them in situations where they can spar with each other (parties, hospital bedsides, funerals) and give them one-liners to sling at each other that would make the writers of FRASIER green with envy. (Note: Make sure these characters are portrayed by terrific actresses who clearly relish mixing it up.) Then, give them lawyers. Bake on the front-burner at least three days a week for two decades and you've got Kay and Jill, the most entertaining duo on television, much less daytime.
