Another World is an American television soap opera that ran on NBC for 35 years from May 4, 1964 to June 25, 1999. Set in the fictional town of Bay City, the show in its early years opens with announcer Bill Wolff intoning its epigram, “We do not live in this world alone, but in a thousand other worlds,” which Phillips said represented the difference between “the world of events we live in, and the world of feelings and dreams that we strive for.” Another World focused less on the conventional drama of domestic life as seen in other soap operas, and more on exotic melodrama between families of different classes and philosophies.

Jim and Mary were curious when Tom stopped by briefly to speak to their daughter Pat. Mary preferred to remain home when Jim went to comfort Liz over the death of her husband Will, his brother. Granny gently chided Mary for not having accompanied her husband. Jim and Liz broached the subject of the business now that Will was dead and Liz was still involved. A glum Susan couldn't bring herself to talk to her mother Liz about her father's death. Liz was relieved when son Bill arrived home from the university campus.

Bill, home from campus because he felt he was needed, spent the time trying to reconcile Susan and their mother, Liz. Susan grew despondent remembering how she had been at her father's side when he died. Susan told Bill she's felt lonely since their father's funeral on Saturday, because she and her father had been very close. Bill tried to console Susan when she groaned that Liz never needed her. Susan said Liz was too possessive, but Bill said it was ""just competition"" between a mother and a daughter. Pat was irked at Alice for being suspicious that their father, Jim, was spending a lot of time at Liz's house that evening. Alice needled Pat that because she bought a car, she can't afford to live on campus and so was forced to share a room with Alice at home. Pat called Alice ""youngster"" every time Alice ruffled her feathers. Alice reminded Pat that Bill doesn't like her new boyfriend, Tom. Alice worried about Russ's reaction to Will's death. Mary thought Pat was being insensitive when

Mary was waiting for Jim when he finally came home from Liz's. Mary teased Jim that Alice was his favorite child. When Mary disapproved of Tom, Jim told her it would only end in disaster if they tried to dictate whom Pat could or could not see. Jim suspected something happened between Liz and Mary when Jim and Will had gone into partnership, but Mary said the reason they never got along was because they never had anything in common. Granny was upset Mary didn't accompany Jim to visit Liz. Granny assured Jim that in time they would get over Will's death. Jim remarked that Janet has never been close to the rest of the family. Granny worried that Janet has no life outside of her work, but Jim told her that Janet seems to prefer her life that way. Ken, an executive at Janet's place but not her boss, was shaken when Janet was brusque with him during an intimate evening at her downtown apartment, but chalked it up to the recent death of her brother. Ken told Janet his family was a closed sub

Jim and Janet discussed Will's death. Janet was melancholy, and asked after Jim's children. Janet was afraid that she's getting old, and hasn't accomplished anything of value. Later, Jim and Mary hoped that neither of their daughters grows up to be an unfulfilled career woman like Janet. Liz advised Bill to take the necessary coursework to become a CPA, despite his desire to pursue law. She warned him that life is uncertain, and if he becomes an accountant, he'd always have a place in his father's company. Janet continued to look on her life with regret: she's successful, but she's never really been in love. She told this to Ken, who thought she was being silly. When Janet brought up his marriage, Ken warned her that his wife and son are off limits. Liz told Sue that she disapproves of Janet's lifestyle, but Sue admired her. Sue wanted to move out on her own, and Liz asked her not to. Sue bitterly told Liz she doubts Liz really cares one way or the other where Sue lives.

Bill ran into Missy on the college campus next to an old wooden bridge leading to the law library, the same place where he first met her. Legend had it than a woman student had jumped in and drowned because of a failed love affair. Missy told Bill she hasn't seen him at the Kopper Kettle, where she waitresses, since his father died. Liz told Bill that yesterday Susan came to her to ask for money to leave home. Bill tried to comfort Liz and told her her life isn't over since his father's death. Granny tried to calm Alice's fears about dying. Alice had been curious about what happens when we died ever since Granny's husband died five years ago and she came to live with them. Granny advised Susan not to leave home when she came to visit Granny. Susan told Bill she feels more at home at Jim and Mary's house than at their house. Bill was evasive when Susan questioned him about his new girlfriend.

Jim and Mary assured Dru they wouldn't hide the existence of a grandchild from him. Dru assured John he had done everything he could for Pat. Adams considered Phil's ""a woman wronged"" approach melodramatic, but Phil anticipated it as John's strategy and was ready to deny Tom as the baby's father if John trotted a baby into court. Larry recommended that Tony should have had a psychiatrist look at Pat, and even wanted to bet $5 that one would be brought in to the trial. Pat speculated on the jury's thought processes before being led back into the courtroom.

There was a loud murmur as Pat was brought into court. In his opening remarks, John instructed the jury that the picture puzzle of the trial would not be complete until the last piece was fitted into its proper place. John objected to Phil's attempt to arouse the jury's sympathy for the first witness, Ken. Ken told Phil he looked at his son's dead body at the County Morgue on November 7th. The judge sustained Phil's objection to John's characterization of Tom as a ladies' man. John harped on Ken's separation from Laura until Phil objected. The coroner, Dr. Robert Wolf, testified that Tom died from a massive hemorrhage of the abdominal cavity (in other words, he bled to death) from a gunshot beneath the sternum. Wolf identified the bullet (State's Exhibit No. 1) and estimated time of death as between 6:30 and 8:30 p.m.
6th Jan 1965
A furious Pat rebuked John for smearing Tom's name, and he warned her not to testify Tom was a paragon of virtue. Dru couldn't fathom why John insisted on telling off and antagonizing Pat. The following morning, John begged Pat to have the same faith in him she had in Dr. Warren. Judge Sutherland berated John and Phil for playing on the jury's emotions yesterday. The crime lab technician, Peter Jordan, testified he found Pat's fingerprints on Exhibit No. 2, the 32-caliber pistol. John declined to question Jordan. On the stand, Adams recounted what happened when he went to Tom's apartment. As Adams described telling Mary and Jim he believed their daughter was with Tom Baxter that night, Pat stood up and shouted she wasn't there, to ensuing court hubbub.
