    "At the beginning of the show, off camera announcer Rod Roddy would

    give a brief description of the convoluted storyline and then he would

    conclude it with the line, "Confused? You won't be, after this episode

    of…Soap". At the end of the show, he would ask a series of

    life-or-death questions in a deliberately dead pan way – "Will Jessica

    discover Chester's affair…?" This would be concluded with – "These

    questions – and many others – will be answered in the next episode of

    Soap."
