(The Root) — There's been quite a bit of implausible drama over the four decades since The Young and the Restless came on the air, but to celebrate its birthday, we thought we'd dust off a clip featuring our favorite love square (?) on the soap opera: the iconic sisters, Olivia and Drucilla (Tonya Lee Williams and Victoria Rowell), and brothers, Malcolm and Neil (Shemar Moore and Kristoff St. John).

Here, Olivia tries to convince Dru, who's married to Neil, to repair her troubled marriage, while Malcolm does the same with his brother. (Background: Malcolm and Olivia were also married for some years. Also, Drucilla and Malcolm slept together and had a baby that Neil thought was his. Whew!)
