    This is, ahem, interesting.

    I just had a convo with a relative and we started talking about Falcon Crest, because who doesn't talk about Falcon Crest? So we got on the subject of Emma and I said that she was "klurig". I didn't think much about it afterwards but then I started thinking "how do I put that in English"? And I can't. Klurig is sort of a word where you're sneaky but also troublesome. I think it fits Emma well.

    Eccentric and dippy are other words I would use to describe the very lovable character of Emma Channing.


    Emma met Dwayne at a dance and they stayed out all night. Lance also met the singer Apollonia, at the same dance. Angela is furious that Emma has not appeared from the night before. Dwayne and Angela’s youngest arrive outside the mansion in his truck, with the horn sounding loudly. Angela, Peter, Lance and Chao-Li go outside to see what is going on, (a scene from season 5, 1985 – ’86):

    Dwayne takes Emma out of the cab and says, “That a girl!”

    They go to the veranda.

    Emma says to Angela: “Did you hear Dwayne’s air horn? He let me operate it.”

    Angela: “Where have you been all night?”

    Emma: “Mother this is Dwayne Cooley. Dwayne, Angela Channing.”

    Dwayne shakes Angela’s hand: “It’s a real pleasure to meet Emma’s mother, Mrs. Channing.”

    Emma: “And this is Lance, my nephew and my future stepfather Peter Stavros and our major-domo Chao-Li.”

    Dwayne shakes Lance’s hand, then Peter’s hand and salutes Chao-Li: “Hi ya Lance, Pete, Major.”

    Peter: “How do you do?”

    Chao-Li bows to Dwayne.

    Emma: “And let’s not forget Ursula. That’s what Dwayne calls his truck. Isn’t she magnificent, she even as a place to sleep…..right behind the seat!!!!”

    Angela: “Oh Emma, in a truck!”

    Emma: “Oh mother don’t be old fashioned. It’s really all right. Dwayne and I are real good buddies.”

    Dwayne: “That’s a fact Mrs. Channing. One look at your daughter and it was like going down hill with no brakes.”

    Angela: “You Emma you go inside. We’ll talk about this later.”

    Dwayne says to Emma: “You go on ahead. I gotta be rolling.”

    He lifts Emma up to hug her and then they kiss, “bye for now you sweet thing”, he says.

    Emma: “Bye Dwayne and thanks for the …… ride!”

    Dwayne: “You bet ya! Oh it was real nice meeting all you folks. Emma love you’ll be hearing from me real soon.”

    He drives off down the avenue, with the horn sounding.

    Carrie Preson (as Elsbeth Tascioni in The Good Wife) reminded me of Emma Channing sometimes.

    LOL
    Yes, she's very hyper and slightly autistic, but I like how she finds the perfect angle based on things that seem totally unrelated.

    you know "Klurig" is actually a good word to describe Emma. But I don't know how to translate it into English properly either...

    Emma as the youngest daughter of Angela Channing was NICE, she could even have been the nicest character throughout the nine seasons.
