It occurred to me recently how many characters go by a nickname. Could you just imagine if they all went by their full names?
Jennifer: Jack Junior! You're back!
Jack Junior: Hi mom!
Jennifer: How was South Africa?
Jack Junior: I had a wonderful time with Theodore. But anyways, I heard that cousin Alice had a baby!
Jennifer: Yeah, Samantha is really upset with her for taking off. A lot of other people left town too, like William, Jackson, Gabriela, and Rafael.
Jack Junior: So what else is new?
Jennifer: Well, Katherine and Abraham are working together. There's some sort of drama going on with Chadwick's brother, Jacob. Also, Benjamin was brainwashed and Margaret didn't kill her grandchild!
Jack Junior: Ah, good old Salem. It's great to be home.
