I read this this morning - thanks for posting it here! I love articles like this, and this person's research is very impressive. I have long thought that Days is the soap with the most references in 'pop culture'. Even general news articles are always comparing any dramatic moment to "a story on Days of Our Lives".

My favorite 'Days in pop culture' moment, which actually was not mentioned in this article, was the Marlena/Stefano Aremid scene shown on ER in 96. Carter was in the doctor's lounge and was astounded to find the doctors and nurses completely hooked on Days. My friends and I were hooked on both shows (ER and Days) and we were so excited to see Aremid show up on ER.

DAYS was also mentioned and a clip of the show was featured in the movie "What lies beneath" when Michelle Pfeiffer's character visits the mother of the dead girl..

On Scrubs Dr Cox was seen watching Days, a scene with Jack and Greta from 2001.

On the movie Drop Dead Gorgeous, starring Kirsten Dunst, Kirstie Alley and Denise Richardson, one of the pageant volunteers is supposed to play a promotional video and when the film turns on it is interupted by the opening sequence of DAYS.

LOL! Really funny scene.

I think Young and Restless probably runs second. I remember "Mr. Mom" showing Y&R. But, then again, on "9 to 5", the imprisoned Mr. Hart is watching Days! (Darn, I'm dating myself here, LOL)

One of my favorite moments on Frasier was when they had Martin (his dad) quote the opening line from Days..."Like sands through an hourglass..."

I liked what Hogan said when he first came onto DOOL. Days was still famous and expected to be around where as when he was on ATWT and people hard the soap's name, they asked if it was still on the air.
