Stupid History: In the very last scene of the soap operah “Search for Tomorrow”, Stu asks Jo what he was “searching” for. for which Jo dramatically replied “Tomorrow”
Great way to go out !! Classy ending !! Much respect !!
Search for Tomorrow’s final scene was the most elegant for a show of its kind to date & a wonderful way to pay tribute to that iconic drama. The very final scene set on the porch of the McCleary clan’s stately home has Stu ask Jo “What are you searching for, Jo?” and to which she replies, on the verge of tears, “Tomorrow and I can’t wait.” What class!!! ABC should take note and prepare as dignified farewells to AMC & OLTL.
Seriusly where the full episode of it!
I was so glad they never made Stu and Jo into a couple. They had a really special friendship and it was good they kept it that way
Oh wow, that brought tears to my eyes.
WHY THIS IS SO SPECIAL TO ME………..
If this was from Christmas 1986, that was the last Holiday time with my wonderful Grandmother Catherine Weeden, and my beautiful Auntie, Phyllis Anderson……as we lost both of them in 1987. What a wonderful tribute to a great soap opera in its’ day…..I remember Search mostly from the 1970s’ – it was a very dramatic show and in all those years it remained only a 1/2 hour soap…..Slowly all those CBS soaps are ending, but they were great in the day !!
I didn’t know this show lasted this long. I grew up watching CBS soaps with my mom. We didn’t watch it when it went to NBC. I is sad that GL and ATWT are gone now. I have’t watched them much in recent years. I didn’t like the way it they were going but i certainly didn’t want them off the air. I figured they would come around and I would watch them again. The best days for GL was early 80s. Loved the Bauers and Reardons. This was a wonderful ending wish they had ended more like this.
@nelgebutuoy Na, Santa Barbara owns that title. No soap on NBC, or any network for that matter, was better written than SB in 86.
I must have watched this on my old VHS tape a hundred times. So sad! Especially since, at the time, it was the best written show in the NBC daytime lineup.
@MrEmfc2 The song is “We’ll Be Together Again” by Lou Rawls
A great show that unfortunately couldn’t go on longer. Does anyone know the name of the song being sung at the end and by whom?
In my opinion, Mary Stuart is one of the two best actresses to ever appear on Daytime TV (the other being Beverlee McKinsey from AW and GL). There are other greats, but those two were the best. Class acts until the end, RIP to both.
I watched Search from the late 60′s to the end. It had a fitting finale to its fans.
@TimothySEnglish I have a chapter about “My Mentor, Mary Stuart” in my book HOLLYWOOD INSIDER: EXPOSED! I invite you to check it out. What a lady!
Hey! Check out my Youtube Soap Opera, titled “Tomorrow Never Comes” Surprisingly the opening them is similar to this Soap…I do love the ending!
@NelsonAspen I just finished reading Both of Me. Fascinating book, and Mary Stuart was marvelously candid about her own life. A great read for sure.
@larkpraise I agree larkpraise. You can tell the profound sadness in some of the actors faces as they waved farewell at the end, especially Mary Stuart. I started following ATWT 30 years ago and I still can’t believe I won’t be able to tune in to see what Barbara, Lisa, or Holden and Lily are up to. In many ways they became part of my extended family, even as the show declined. The relationships built over the decades have been second to none.
This finale should have been required viewing for the producers of ATWT and GL. It’s a sweet and sentimental conclusion that is satisfying on many levels. It wraps up the stories between the characters, and then lets the actors break the fourth wall to say goodbye to the loyal fans. The finales of ATWT and GL didn’t come close to this…
@tennyc she’d actually been on from the show’s debut in 1951. Her autobiography, BOTH OF ME, is fascinating. I devoted an entire chapter to her in HOLLYWOOD INSIDER: EXPOSED. She was a trailblazer & grande dame!
Wouldn’t it have been nice for ATWT to go out with such a nice “thank you” to the fans, reverence to its history and curtain call for cast & crew?
