"Dear Old Daddy"


\

Tracy is leaving...selling the painting.  Kind  of interesting she's just going to sell it when it was so important to her. But....whatever.  She tells everyone it's time to step out of her Father's shadow and she can't do it there.  Tracy ordered pizza. 

WHY the hell didn't they throw a big Ned/Olivia wedding with the whole cast there before she left? Too much to think about? Ugh. 


BUT! ON Jane's LAST DAY I have to watch SONNY SEX FLASHBACKS? OH of course, I do--this is GH!!  That lady is Carly's lawyer. So, there's that. Carly owns all the businesses they are in her name because of the government. 

I take it Maxie is extending her stay in "Seattle" ...and STUPID AMY comes on!! AHAHA. OMG...like I needed to see her today?? She's bitching that Maxie won't be there for the Nurses Ball. 

OH and now ABC interrupts GH to tell me the ACA has been repealed. WHAT A GREAT DAY...


Oh GOD YAH I saw the horror. I guess this all "Holland"... and he and Tracy never said a word.  Because GH.

of course ABC had to interrupt Jane's last day. Because no one in America has access to the internet or cable to get informed of the news.

Michelle Latta said...

Of course Sonny has to be on today's show, because it's Tracy's last day and it can't be ALL about her. smdh

Luke showed in the very last few seconds. Tracy walked into a coffee shop and he was sitting at a table. Eyes locked but no words were spoken. I was disappointed; I thought there would have been more of Luke, but then as you said they could have had Ned and Olivia's wedding.

One nice mushy moment - Monica said she would change anything in their house. Tracy said "don't you mean the house Alan gave you" and Monica told her "I know what I said".

Di said...

They ruined her last day with all that Amy crap!

And, of course, we have to see Sonny. It must be in his contract that he has to be on every day.

The only good thing the writers did was to have Ned change his name back to Quartermaine and have the family increase.

Is Geary seriously ill? I was shocked at how terrible he looked.

LiamAZ said...

Although I'm certainly not a fan of the current writing team and regime at GH, I chose to interpret the ending myself. Luke went through his personal journey and left, and then Tracy did the same thing. Maybe they can both be at peace with each other now.

In any case, I'm hoping we now get to see a little more of Lucy since someone needs to fill the void left by Tracy (and that's a hard task). Monica needs someone to quarrel with.

It breaks my heart to see Jane Elliott go since I've watched her since the late 70's. It truly is sad to see the Q family now compared to what it used to be. I'm glad Ned changed his last name.

delcodave said...

so the big shocker of this episode is that Tracy's great-great-grandfather is still alive?

kdmask said...

DAVE....LOL.. looked like Auntie Mabel

Michelle Latta said...

He's 69 or 70, I'm sure age has caught up to him.

Anon said...

Geary turns 70 this month and let's face it, partied his way through at least some of the early 1980's...probably aged himself a little bit more with that. He simply looked old.
I don't mind that he didn't say anything - the Luke character is done and really doesn't even need to say anything more. The look, and it's possibilities, with him and Tracy was enough.
Jane E is one of the all time greats - a consummate pro and a class act...She'll be missed. Another piece of GH's storied past heads away into the sunset.

** Nah, the best way I can put it is: This is the way Tony looks. The shorter hair and more reserved appearance, is the way Luke looks.

** Yeah, about halfway through it got hijacked by `news'. So Hulu definitely earned their subscription fee from me, today. As crap like this is why I kept it up, after the end of the PP AMC & OLTL mess ended.

Michelle Latta said...

I finally watched, lucky for me I got to ff AND uninterrupted since they moved the time to 3 a couple wks back (central standard time). Disappointed that Sonny was on...ok, so I did ff some. Haha! I wasn't so much disappointed in the storyline as I was that Tony was part of it. His last yr or so on the show left a bad taste in my mouth. I will miss JE though. As for his hair hair LMAO I was like wtfh?

Michelle Latta said...

I know he's like 69 or 70 and sure he's partied in the past. I also know he's gay......so.....i hope he isn't irresponsible like Sonny.

Michelle Latta said...

Stupid ABC moved mine from 2 to 3 (I live in tx) a couple wks or so ago and so when I work evening I don't get to see any of it til I get home. Which made it easier when I decided to not
watch this past wk. LOL!

LSV422 said...

There was a message running that ABC.COM would run the whole show again that evening I believe. Have to admit I was boohooing when Tracy came back in and hugged Monica. Maybe TG has a hairstyle that is popular in the Netherlands now-not flattering though. I liked that she had the gang there to see her off. 10 large pizzas for approx. 10 people? Gonna miss her.

Just checked and yesterday's show is there - no sign in/free! Very nice! I didn't get the whole thing yesterday either so will watch later.

And the little boy who plays Jake was on Grey's last night and was really good. So cute, too!

I saw it. The little guy really has some acting chops. He was great.

AntJoan said...

Yes, someone here was nice enough to tip us off about Jake's being on Grey's, which was a nice thing to look forward to. I also watched last night and saw him, he was great!!

nance24 said...

I just finished watching it on demand.....everything about Tracy was great but Sonny, Carly and Amy????? Seriously????? And that TG hairdo is one of the worst I've ever seen, no Luke wig to give him???

gracegirl said...

OMGOSH!! I know this thread is about Janes departure and she will be greatly missed but I can't blame her especially with the track this show is on. Which brings me to how much they have trashed Alexuss character. It nauseates me to no end and I was just sitting here watching the last half hr and couldn't believe that Jordan took the words right out of my mouth when she asked Alexus what happened to her! Of course most alcoholics have codependency issues and caretaker issues but this is ridiculous and sad to watch. There are a couple other things to say the least that stink but basically,when I watch I just don't enjoy it like I have in the past. Oh well,have a blessed day!

friscogh said...

I dont know what the comment "I also know he's gay......so.....i hope he isn't irresponsible like Sonny" is suppose to mean other than sounding ignorant

Zak said...

I think we all know what Michelle is insinuating. And, yes, it is ignorant. I don't think it was meant mean-spirited, but definately ignorant.

Sandi said...

I'm sure Tony Geary did not choose his hairstyle to please anyone but himself, and that's the way it should be.

Michelle Latta said...

I agree he was so good!

Michelle Latta said...

You're welcome LOL!

Michelle Latta said...

I know right!

Naxie's home:

Nathan and Amy: Huh?!!?! Maxie used to be a cheerleader?!!?! NO SHE WASN'T! What the hell?! Damn rewrites! Amy stole a picture of Naxie and ripped up Maxie's part!?!?! WHAT THE!?!?! I thought she was obsessed with Dillon and wanted to break he and Kiwi up!!! What is going on!?!?!! Now she is obsessed with Nathan?!

Private lawyer room: I didn't know Sonny had a rum distillery and a wine one too. Boy this lawyer lady who slept with Sonny, she is dumb now! And look he and her both have dimples! :)

Q home: Damn this goodbye is so sad!!! Monica wins the line of the day.

Monica Somewhere along the line, you went from being my sister in law, to my sister.

Oh damnit!!! That made me cry! :'(

Holland: Is it in Holland? Well I guess Tracy is there. Oh oh LUKE! UGH! What's with that hair? ROFL!

Bobby Bear said...

FV: Tony? This is Frank. Would you like to come back for one scene with Jane when she retires? You won't have any lines.

TG: Sure!! But I'm not cutting my hair!

FV: Won't be a problem.

** IIRC, I seem to remember reading awhile back that he's been in a committed relationship for awhile. (That being a big factor in relocating to the Netherlands full time) So, I'm pretty sure that's not an issue. Really, these days in particularly, one's sexual orientation really isn't anywhere near as critical to that, like it was in the past.

** Having started watching in the late 70s, when Luke and Laura's stuff was just really starting up and really was "must watch", daily. So I've loved Tony and Genie since then, and am probably a bit more forgiving when it comes to his last year of stuff. (and all the other unavoidable stuff that came up during that time. Though at least in my own personal "headcanon" it STILL was Bill Eckert, and not Luke.) As for his hair, it worked for me. As that's how Tony WANTS to look himself. Instead of the very short hair, and simple clothing, that was the way Luke looked, that fit the character.

I thought she was obsessed with Dillon and wanted to break he and Kiwi up!!! What is going on!?!?!! Now she is obsessed with Nathan?!

** Yeah, it looks like she's now gonna go the "stalker/obsessed" route with Nathan, until Maxie gets back, or after also. If this facilitates getting rid of her quicker, then that works for me!

Private lawyer room: I didn't know Sonny had a rum distillery and a wine one too. Boy this lawyer lady who slept with Sonny, she is dumb now! And look he and her both have dimples! :)

** The rum one is on his private island where his casino is. Where the wine one is, I have no idea.

Q home: Damn this goodbye is so sad!!! Monica wins the line of the day.

Monica Somewhere along the line, you went from being my sister in law, to my sister.

Oh damnit!!! That made me cry! :'(

** Yeah, I had a pretty hard time getting through the whole show yesterday. That line being a BIG part. Another being when Monica said to Tracy "our house" instead of the usual.

Holland: Is it in Holland? Well I guess Tracy is there. Oh oh LUKE! UGH! What's with that hair? ROFL!

** Yeah, that's supposed to be Amsterdam. (It's also the same set that was used where Tracy bought the "space brownies" from a few years back, when trying to track down Jerry (not to mention any other random bar/coffee shop)). I like the hair. As it's completely Tony. :)

AntJoan said...

So here is my issue with Sonny and the lawyer. I think she is too YOUNG for him. You know, Bobbie used to be the star of the show--everything and everyone revolved around her. So, they wanted to keep her, as someone said, "younger than springtime." So they kept de-aging Lucas. I don't know when they finally let her start to age, maybe when Carly was 40? So, with Sonny, now the star of the show, when they brought on Olivia, they were supposed to be the same age. To me, she looks about 15 years younger. Then, when Nelle pretended to sleep with him, he said he wasn't attracted to her, no one brought up that it would be practically child molestation. Now he is having random hook-ups with women half his age? Look, he is gorgeous, but can't they have him hook up with more age-appropriate women? Does anyone know how old the actress is who plays the lawyer?

You know, when Olivia hooked up with Johnny, I remember their encounter in the bar. She bent over the bar diagonally to reach for something, and he seemed to focus on her hindquarters. She said one of the best all-time lines (well I think it was): "Checking out the assets, junior?" That was great on soooo many levels. First, she is acknowledging their age difference. Also, Olivia has AMAZING assets, and she truly appears to be ageless, I think she could get a man of any age. She now is with Ned, who I think is almost 60 in real life, I don't know how old she is. Why can't Sonny be with someone who is 60? Now THAT would be a story, pair him up with someone older, instead of going younger and younger, give us older gals a thrill!

HOLY COW!!! NEW GH PROMO!!!!!

witch said...

maurice benard is 54, olivia is 47 and nancy lee grahn is 61. so he was paired with an older woman and she was my favorite with him. they also paired nlg with ingo who is 46 . she has chemistry with everyone.

Yesterday's GH:

Police station:

Malcolm and Alexis: Wow! This guy is so rude!!!

Julian and Alexis: Wow really? They had to talk again?! They already had closure! There is no reason for them to talk! Yeah Jordan I don't blame you!

Port Charles academy:

Sonny and Ava: Hahaha. Love how Ava goads him. :)

Sonny, Ava, and interviwer: No room at the inn!!!! That's okay. Sonny can give her money or sleep with her.. :) Oh he went the charming route! And it worked hahahaha! No women can resist his dimples!

The hospital:

Griffy's office:

Griffy and Finny: Griffy! Finny is being set up!!! RayFinn knows who is setting him up!!! Listen to them!!

Lobby:

Griffy, Finny, and RayRay: Ohhhh.. They are setting up a trap for Brad!!! LOVE IT!

Griffy, RayFinn, Brad, and Dr. O: Oh Brad!!! You are going to be in so much trouble when the truth comes out that you are setting up Finny!!! You could lose your job, and when Lucas finds out what you did, WOW! So Finny wins the line of the day... Dr. O would have won with that Garden gnome comment, but Finny's comment was funnier!

Finny: What hellish dimension did you materialize from? Think of my heart. Can you wear a cowbell from now on? Don't forget the cowbell. More cowbell.

BAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHA!

Brad and Dr. O: Love that they are both against RayFinn! :) They are bonding awwww! :)

Metrocourt hotel:

Michael and Carly: Oh Michael stop defending your father!!!

Ava, Martina, and Carly: Hahaha Ava is figuring everything out! Tell Carly! Tell Carly! :)

Sonny's home:

Sonny and Michael: Oh Michael stop it!!!!

Di said...

sonya said....Griffy, Finny, and RayRay: Ohhhh.. They are setting up a trap for Brad!!! LOVE IT!

*** Griffy probably peed in the cup this time and the results will be the same...BUSTED.

"Di said..Griffy probably peed in the cup this time and the results will be the same...BUSTED."

ROFL! That would be awesome if they used Griffy's pee! :)

LSV422 said...

Gee, who wears a dress cut almost down to her waist for work, Hayden? Love seeing Ava get some dirt on Sonny. Now with JE gone I dread seeing more of Sonny and Carly. Martina is a bit young for him but what is mind boggling is the fact that she didn't recognize him. Surely being retained as his wife's lawyer would have inclined her to research the husband, who has been in the news many times.

"LindaV says what is mind boggling is the fact that she didn't recognize him. Surely being retained as his wife's lawyer would have inclined her to research the husband, who has been in the news many times."

The sex clouded her brain! And before that, his charms clouded her brain! So she is doubly dumb! :)

AntJoan said...

I tried to look up the actress playing the lawyer, she was hard to find, and her birthday was even harder to find. It looks like she might have been born in 1970, so she would be 47, which is not bad for Sonny, she looks more like 35. . .

AMC GH said...

Jane Elliott deserved all the accolades she received. Tony did not need to be there to complete her. Although GH would like us all to forget THE NUMBER ONE DAYTIME LOVE OF ALL TIME will always be LIKE AND LAURA. Highest rated daytime show ever and always will be from the looks of the genre. Don't be so quick to dismiss the union THAT MADE GENERAL HOSPITAL the talk of he 80s!! I know 50+ years but this IS the super couple of ALL daytime. I am a total All My Children fan but Luke and Laura were it. I hate they ever parted. I don't like her with Kevin or him with Tracy. Just see it fir what it is/was. The defiining moment in daytime history. Tracy was off to find HERSELF for the first time ever...not to find Luke.

K said...

Since I haven't seen anyone mention it yet, Sunday night on Lifetime "Cradle Swapping" premieres. It's a new Lifetime movie starring Brandon Barash, and also features Patricka Darbo (DAYS & B&B, for those unfamiliar with her).

Griffy, RayFinn, Brad, and Dr. O: Oh Brad!!! You are going to be in so much trouble when the truth comes out that you are setting up Finny!!! You could lose your job, and when Lucas finds out what you did, WOW!

** That would require Lucas to actually be on screen for that! Knowing Jelly though, it'd just be a tiny comment, about what happened off screen.

So Finny wins the line of the day... Dr. O would have on with that Garden gnome comment, but Finny's comment was funnier!

Finny: What hellish dimension did you materialize from? Think of my heart. Can you wear a cowbell from now on? Don't forget the cowbell. More cowbell.

** After the last few days, this was VERY welcome! :)

Brad and Dr. O: Love that they are both against RayFinn! :) They are bonding awwww! :)

** The possibilities this opens up could be amazing! (But that's probably as far as it will go.) I had thought they had bonded a bit over Britt in the past. (But, my nearly nonexistent short-term memory could just be wrong)

Metrocourt hotel:

Michael and Carly: Oh Michael stop defending your father!!!

Sonny's home:

Sonny and Michael: Oh Michael stop it!!!!

** This just really pisses me off and makes me sick. After what Sonny did to A.J., then having Michael do a complete 180 when Sonny gets shot, and now defends him.

natasha_jax said...

You are correct. I checked IMDB and he turns 70 on May 29th. I thought he always looked nice with his hair short and spiked a bit. This was a drastic change.

Matthew said...

Adding to the confusing storylines are Sonny/Carly divorce. Carly is divorcing Sonny because he lied about something he thought was true AKA Sonny/Nelle. However there was no violation of Marriage in the first place. Yes, Sonny did ban Jax from the US, BUT Carly WILLING slept with Jax, and commited infidelity. So WHY does Carly think that she is going to win the divorce???

It would of been nice if they casted an older actress (40s-50s) for Carly's attorney/Sonny's fling #512.MB is 54, not 34!
