Ewwhh you know something is wrong with you when you prefer the Fetch scene over the lovely dovely scene with Ejami. *shudders* (And I hate both couples)
NO darling NOTHING is wrong with you. I hate Dannifer but I hate Ejami too and if I had to choose, I'd choose to watch Dannifer over the disgusting, vile shit that Ejami is any day of the week.

Subtext is playing what's not specifically written in the dialog. Playing the right subtext often gives dialog completely different flavors. Take for example two characters discussing going shopping and making a grocery list. The dialog itself is nondescript and to just read it implies nothing more than two characters making a shopping list. Take the same dialog and have the actors perform it as if they're a married couple who live together, but are on the verge of getting divorced. It gives the scene a very nuanced shading. Then again, take the exact same dialog, but have the actors perform it as roommates who are secretly attracted to one another, but can't admit it yet. Same dialog. ENTIRELY different scene. Subtext. The problem with certain actors is that they just do NOT have the ability to play any subtext (or the right subtext). A scene about making a grocery list becomes just that -- a scene about making a grocery list. And it's pretty damn boring. Likewise, a good script writer is able to convey the necessary subtext in their scripts via stage directions.
Way cool and excellent description!! Do you have college education in acting, fashion, etc....?

I disagree. Although I'm not an EJami fan, I can watch them-- they have chemistry. Dannifer--No Way, even without angst in their scenes they don't have any chemistry.
They're :yawnz:

Eric & Nicole are master eye-fuckers. And Zucker & Vaughan has the art of subtext down to a science.
What exactly is "subtext"? Can you give me an example?
old school example: Hope talking to Melissa about Larry & Bo. The dialogue itself has Hope saying that she wants to be with Larry and that she doesn't love Bo any more, but the delivery itself is saying just the opposite - Hope's trying to convince herself that Larry's the one for her and that she doesn't love Bo, when in actuality, Bo's the only one in her heart.

in the Eric/Nicole current scene, the subtext is their sexual attraction to one another.
Thank you for more examples! Helps me "get it"!

Deidre Hall is great at subtext.

Greg Vaughan and Ari Zucker have been selling the subtext during their scenes recently.
Totally see that in Marlena, and oh does Father Eric play it well in this situation as well!!

I was a theater major for a semester during college and, later, a broadcasting major. I never finished up a degree, unfortunately. I also read a lot of books on soap opera history and writing (especially both of Jean Rouverol's books which, IMO, are the 2 BEST books on the subject ever written) as well as collect (when able) old soap opera scripts.

in addition to DAYS, I watch B&B & GH. I keep trying Y&R but it keeps boring me to tears. I'm also watching the new OLTL & AMC as well as the UK soaps Coronation Street, Emmerdale, EastEnders, and Hollyoaks. I was also watching the Australian & New Zealand soaps (Home & Away, Neighbours, & Shortland Street) but there are only so many hours in the day. lol

Kate was the best part of the show today. Loved it when she asked Sami so sweetly - "Do you like the colour?" LOL!

You'd think EJ would learn by now trying to oneup Rafe never turns out well for him.

I also enjoyed the Nick / Rafe scenes.

Cam, Jen, Dan and company were okay.

EJ and Sami - Can't tolerate them and their arrogance.

Nicole trying to warn Eric about Vargas ... I wonder how that's going to work out for her.

Seeing Nick act like a little a bitch all over Salem - to people who are HELPING HIM - it's easy to see why he got his ass kicked on the regular while in prison. One just can't help but want to bitch slap him into the next century.

Abby, stop pimping Dan's greatness, I want to like you.

Poor Eric with his Varcole flashbacks. GV is the best.

LOL at Sami trying to pretend taking the money is no big deal.

Jennifer Rose is squealing about her favorite chef. And Abby is squealing over Cameron. They are basically teenage girlfriends.

I LOVE Nicole threatening Vargas.

I love Eric's lack of comfort in talking about Varcole.

Nicole vs. Vargas - now that's a real contest!

Ugh, I really hope this EJ pseudo-jealousy thing is just a red herring to set up for Rafe's beating. I don't miss that side of him at all.

Oooh Rafe causes Nick to lose his cool. I like that he's starting to crack.

So wait, EJ isn't jealous? This script is weird. Or how JS is playing it is weird. Whatever, Ejami kisses are hot!

It's kind of hard to buy Cameron's money woes when he's wearing his doctor's coat.

Oooh, I like the way that Vargas talked about Nicole calling out Eric's name during sex - sounded hot!

Have I mentioned how awesome I think GV is with this material?

Oh JS, I love you, but I'm REALLY glad you weren't on #StripDays.

Jen looks like she's 60 in that hair and dress.
