* WeInterruptThisProgram: The live [[note]]In the Eastern and Central Time Zones[[/note]] broadcast of ''ATWT'' on November 22, 1963 was interrupted by Creator/WalterCronkite reporting the first bulletins regarding the shooting of President UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy. The actors were not immediately informed, and continued their efforts as CBS cut back to the show between bulletins before abandoning the broadcast entirely in favor of continuous news coverage. Because CBS was routinely videotaping the show for time zone delay and rebroadcast, the entire sequence survives and can be viewed online; see [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?list=PL0O5WNzrZqIMRSDT19pXjBuGLcXKqS-3r&v=T0qdvCQY22g here]].

* GenreSavvy: Occasionally characters do seem to be aware they're in a bizarre, abnormal soap world, but that doesn't seem to stop the plot from getting the better of them.

** Happens so often on soaps that Soap Opera Digest actually needed to ''applaud'' the fact that when a kidnapped Emily was rescued, "she actually looked like she hadn't been to her hairdresser in months" (several months worth of growth, split ends, etc)

* AmericanAccents: The media often has explicitly Texan characters speak in an accent that an actual Texan is unlikely to have. Reid doesn't have this accent, but it's never been confirmed that Reid was raised in Texas, only that he lived and worked there. [[{{Fanon}} The fandom]] seems to have decided that Reid is from Boston, where his uncle lives. Reid also went to Harvard, which is in Massachusetts; depending on how long he was there, that could have shaped his current accent.
