Young and the Restless: 50 Years Of Memorable Moments
Melody Thomas Scott (Nikki Newman) kicked off the soap’s series by introducing one of her favorite scenes. In it, Nikki believes Victor (Eric Braeden) is dead, and he reveals himself to her, making for a big reunion for the unlikely couple.
Next came Braeden’s scene, and in it, Victor and Nick (Joshua Morrow) confront Victor’s father, Albert Miller (George Kennedy). The moment is pivotal for The Mustache.

For Eileen Davidson, her favorite moment as Ashley Abbott came amidst the rain, where she and Victor had an emotional argument about something she’d done.
Beth Maitland reminded viewers that her on-screen alter ego, Traci Abbott, used to be a rock-and-roll singer. The scene featured Traci from the 1980s performing in a concert.
