Bizarro Sonny




That's MB's kid playing Sonny as a youngin... and it looks like Sonny basically shot Marino in the head as he was pleading for his life. In the fantasy version, Mike saves him and makes him give his gun back.
Sonny wakes up in another house. He sees a pic of Dante..and 2 daughters on the mantel (I think his RL daughters)..and one of Olivia holding a toddler. I think that's Lisa's RL daughter.  She says they are driving to Port Charles to see Dante.

Dante and Sonny bicker about him being in the mob. Dante mocks Sonny for being "only a sergeant and getting shot on duty. Says Olivia will always have to work in the salon because they'll never have money.



They go to Polluzo's Restaurant... Dante and Sam are running it. They are going to have dinner. Sam looks like A Jersey Shore girl.  He works for the Jeromes. Ava is awesome...she's a mobular moll with Julian and is kissing their right hand man..Jason!

Anna is Police Commish!!!! She's like a hard-boiled crabby thing. Alexis is there too. Sonny wants to stop the Jeromes. OMG Get this... Anna's a sad sack because Robin died of HIV. WHY? The AIDS WING never got built!! So-- in order for Sonny to do that, he had to have shot Marino. WTH!! OMG. 

Dante is actually helping the PCPD (Jordan) to get the Jeromes. He's doing it for his father. He can't tell him though. 
The DA is Jordan, she brings in Ava and Julian. They think Sonny did it. 

Sonny talks to Carly at Kelly's and Charlie's--because you know, Sonny and Carly-- :eyeroll: 

Meanwhile Sam sees this as a great time to get out of the mob. Dante only turned in the Jeromes to take over the business. She tells him to leave. He says no-- and if you don't like it, I'll find someone else to take your place. He leaves. She puts her rings on the bar..and out walks..JASON. because you know, Jason and Sam.. :eyeroll:  Sam says she wants to go to Montana. Jason says he misses his motorcycle-- Scully made him give it up. Dante calls Jason to go to the Pier. 

END: eesh!! Dante shoots Jason in the stomach--that shocked me!! He goes to shoot him in the head and Sonny rushes out in his puffy jacket to stop him. They tussle for the gun. Sonny ends up shooting Dante just like he did before. Olivia rushes out and screams "Sonny, you shot your own son"!!

Then, Sonny sees himself going to shoot Marino and Mike trying to stop him. Sonny says "no it's his choice to make" and the Kid "Sonny" Shoots Marino. "Whatever choice you make is your's to live with"


Hmmmmmmmmmm VERY Camus!

Sunday Surgery: Lay Your Hands on Me


Now think hard and I'll make this story go faster....

I had a very stressful week, and you?? It was capped off by: SNOW!! Not just flurries-- SNOW SNOW. It's too early !! Anyway, GH did provide some respite for me which is a good thing! It's still bloated and I have plenty to complain about so don't you worry. I am enjoying the show in a frustrating way. Hope that makes sense? 

I'm also thinking of everyone in the way of the fires in CA. I know a lot of people there and many of my readers are in that area. Please take care, and please think about donating to the Red Cross or shelters in need. This is just horrific.

I WORE A WIRE

Sonny, Janette-- DA Lady. Love the actress playing Janette. Good scenes but Sonny was there the whole time. Janette admits to wanting her husband dead.  Sonny got it on the wire.  Margo throws her mother out of her own house. Then, Margogo gets drunk. Dear lord, here's hoping Sonny doesn't get the dimples out.
OMG So, Margo drinks and sobs and Sonny calls Carly  and tells her he can't come home tonight!! ahhahaa. OMG 


OMG Sasha can die now. She needs a job.  WELP! Nina gave her one. Nina introduces her to Franco. HE's like YOU have a daughter? Huh? 

Ryan can murder Griffin and Kiki, I approve. 




SO, Carly's falsely accused AGAIN? REALLY ?? This is fresh storytelling? Come on. At least Diane is on. 

Ava and Ryan... she sees his wedding ring on the desk. He tells her he broke up with Laura. She's kinda a bit OK with that.  She gets into detail on how she'd like to get Griffin back by showing Kiki he'd cheat on her.  Ryan says he can't see her anymore because he can't be objective in her case. OH! I hope RAVA happens. 

Liz and Franco talk about Aiden. Terry knocks on the door and has beers for she and Liz. Franco leaves. Liz talks about Aiden. Terry talks about Oscar. Breaks all sorts of privacy laws lol. 

END: Sonny sits and watches a passed out Margo...that will start the "what If" story on Monday. Sonny's show about his life with no crime.

Placeholder--I MADE IT!

Here we are AGAIN...to "save the day" 

I should be here for the show--but?? Not sure-- it's one of those weeks again!! Yesterday's show was...meh. I really don't know why we are getting this new teacher chick on top of Sasha on top of Margot... Seriously. Enough already. I sometimes think Frank just doesn't listen and hires willy-nilly to see what the hell sticks. 

Having Sam, Curtis and Jason in the Kevin/Ryan story pisses me off to no end too. WHY not let Laura take the lead on this? Come on--she could get Anna to help--Laura worked with Robert remember?? But you know, GH--gotta have that crew in our faces 24-7. Speaking of--a Sonny-Centered show? Um..we already HAVE those!! Maybe a Monica one would have been better? All her family NOT die? 

I'M HERE AT 2:20!! 

JaSam at Ferncliff with Nelle--who is rocking a baby like Carly did to prove she was insane when she shot Tony Jones.  Nelle's hair looks as fabulous as Carly's did.  Nelle says when she gets out she's going to destroy Carly's life. 

Franco was eating a Fudgcicle!! Jordan and Curtis are questioning him about Mary Pat. He says OK... He thinks they are questioning him because he was a serial killer..you know, before the tumor. Franco tells them his trigger was Jason--he thought they were twins and he wanted to be a better killer than him. 

Sonny wears a wire to go talk to Margot's Mom.I think I'm team Janette. Sonny mentions his name is "Corinthos"--she gets all nervous and jumpy.  Sonny drinks Scotch.. and yells at her that he knows she ordered the hit on Marino because he has 'PROOF--IN YOUR OWN WORDS"!  She goes to get the letters, which are still in the drawer. They must have put them back. 


Commune girl is there to talk to Krissy--says Oscar fits right in. Oscar then has a bad headache.  The Commune/Cult girl puts "hands" on him to cure his headache. :Eyeroll: Krissy is all impressed.  That girl's name is Daisy. Oscar's headache is gone. Kristina asks how Daisy did it-- Daisy shows her a book "Every Day is a New Dawn" and tells her to read it. "Could help with your own life".  


Kim wants to talk to Joss about Oscar. Carly's like "She's moving along, don't bring her down"!!  Cam and Joss are all cute on the balcony. She gives him a keychain to thank him. They go inside and Kim is like: WTH? She's surprised. Anyway, she can't say anything because her phone rings and Jules is telling her about Oscar. 



Jordan and Chase pick up Carly to take her to the station because her DNA was found with Mary Pat's body.

The Bay-Bay

I GOT IN LATE!! 


Brad tells Britt about the baby...the whole story. She'll help him. She was surprised Nelle just handed the baby ober. 

BOBBIE"S ON! She wants to talk to him about the baby--Jonah. She gives him something. It's a silver spoon. She thinks he should keep it as a reminder. He had given everything to Lucas and Brad. 


Laura and Spencer talk about the election. 

TILLIE HAS TO WALK SEE YA




OMG. GET This....GH Is going to have a Sonny-Centric Episode on Nov. 12th.. saying "What If" he'd never gone into a life of crime.
Read it and weep on TVLINE

Triage Tuesday!

I wanted to come up with a snappy name besides "Activity Tuesday" so here you go!! I'm out and have a million things to do so I'm sorry to say-- I won't be watching today's show for a bit. 

IT'S VOTING DAY!!!!!! Pouring rain here but it will still draw people in. We are lucky--we live in a county that has a polling place about every 3 miles. Seriously. It's amazing. Maybe because we can't vote early? Not sure. Anyway, mine is in a church up the road and the auxiliary ladies all have a bake sale! WOOT! DELICIOUS. Free coffee too.  

Since it is election day, lets look back at some of GH's elections, shall we?? 



Mayor Lomax!!  Remember the BOX of ballots.??... quick trivia question--who threw the box into the PC Harbor? It might surprise you (answer at the end) 




LUKE WINS the Mayorship!!! And in this clip we see Lee and Gail---Ruby!! Amazing how far HIS character came..



This only reminds me of the terrible decision TPTB made letting Genie go in the middle of this story-- I swear the show changed after that whole time period. Thank goodness someone had a level head and got her back! I liked having Ned as Mayor tho--but he's just not on enough. 


Have a great day!! I'll be soaking wet before 9am with my schedule. Ugh...not fun.

Blurred Lines


#ShareYourEars !! Eden tweeted this picture out today. If you are on Twitter, you can share your photo with that hashtag
and Disney will donate $5 to Make a Wish Foundation!! 

SONNY and DA Lady... Talking about the head in the barrel at The Floating Rib.  He says Carly's really upset about it but they didn't do it. Margot says she'll catch whoever did--SHE ALWAYS DOES.  Sonny's going to tell her the truth about her mother and father. Wait, not yet..he says to back off or it's "gonna get bad for her" .  They talk more, he threatens and finally tells her he thinks that her mother was seeing Scully. "Your mother is a widow because she wanted to be one" ... DA goes to slug him, he grabs her arm (Usual precursor to Sonny Sex) 


Curtis and Jordan ...Jordan wants some advice/someone to talk to about the whole case. She tell him about the blonde hairs. I have no idea what they were doing other than recapping. 

Carly's at Jason's. She tells him she said she would kill Mary Pat.  And that she talked to the cops. He thinks that bad...but whatever.  It was pointless. I think they are having Carly tell St. Jaysus so he and Carly can team up and Laura can go to the sidelines. Because....GH 



Lulu comes over to see Laura and Spencer is there too. Lulu thinks Laura is out of it.  Laura says she's not going to actively canvas for votes anymore. She's not sure she's ready for public service.  Spencer goes to check his computer. Laura tells Lulu that "Kevin" left her. WHAT!? WHY!!? Laura tells her why-- Spencer is listening at the door.  Lulu tells her Kevin's a jerk and to get ready to go to the polls and vote.
Spencer says exit polls are in her favor. Lulu and Laura go do her make up-- and Spencer takes out a zip drive for his computer?  I think he's going to hack the election.  Yeah at the end he put it in the computer at the polling place. 


Ava and Ryan at the The Art Gallery. Ryan tries to comfort her.  She says there were blonde hairs in the body's hand. He says he wishes he was there when she found the body. :giggle: He has his morning free and would love to talk to her about things.  They go to Charlies. 


Laura and Lulu go into Charlie's and of course, sees "Kevin" with Ava. She and Lulu leave. Spencer stays behind for a 'coffee' and marches over to KAva's table and "If this was 1776, I'd challenge you to a duel"... "you sir are hollow and have no loyalty"... (looking at Ava) "You too deserve each other.

Sunday Surgery: Last Rites



capitis cucurbita

Well... I moved my kid in the pouring rain-- got really SORE and felt tired for 3 damn days. OLD I AM!!! Oy!! Anyway, it's done--his place is great and yes, I'm glad we hoarded old furniture in the basement for years. 

GH this week was mostly on the up for me. Britch was back and made everything fun again and Thursday's show gave us a great bang for our buck. Whoo HOO!!! 

Eat up your left over Halloween candy and let's dig in...(PS that's fancy Latin up there for you to google)

Peter Pumpkin Head

Laura Wright getting her Hair DID


Carly's dreaming about Mary Pat's floating head.. I wish her eyes were open tho!! Mac is talking to Laura at the Rib. She wonders where Kevin in. He walks in later just as Laura is saying "I wonder who could have done this". 

Scotty and Ava ..he's like "you're seeing that Quack Kevin Collins"!!?? She says he's brilliant AND exciting! 


Kiki, Sasha and Griffin are jogging on the riverfront. Sasha gets a cramp, Griffin fixes her. 

Nina slept on the couch. Valentin brought her tray of coffee and breakfast. 

Nina meets the group on the docks. Kiki says she's doing a walk of shame-- Nina's like NOPE didn't sleep with him!! 

At the Floating Rib, Ryan gives his statement about seeing Mary Pat the night before and that she was scared of Carly. Then he tells Jordan and Chase Ford their history and said Carly basically said she wanted her dead. Laura is trying to tell them it was in "context" but Ryan did the damage! Carly's a suspect. 

In Ava's office, there's a bloody pumpkin face/body thing behind her chair. She screams and throws it. OMG It's MARY PAT'S BODY!! WOWZA, Ava's grossed out, Nina calls the police. Ryan is so smart, he knows Carly hates Ava and would "Frame" her!!

Ryan is skulking around the docks with the hook. Laura sees him... but not put the hook 
BACK..she thinks he's just lying to her. He says he has been and he's a coward. He wanted to tell her his feelings have changed and he wants a separation. Laura cries and pleads with him..he's like NOPE. Ryan tells Laura he's moving out!! 

OH!! It came out today that Sasha isn't really Nina's kid-- Valentin said " The longer you stay, the more likely the truth will come out"!!  

In Loving Memory: Mary Patricia Ingles 1957-2018





It is with deep sadness and a heavy heart that we have to announce the passing of our beloved Mary Patricia Ingles who died  on Halloween, Year of Our Lord 2018.

Mary Pat (as she was known) was a lifelong resident of Port Charles. She was born 1957 along with her twin sister, Terry Pat at Mercy Hospital.  The twins and their older brother (Merrick Pat)  were raised by their mother, Rita after their father left home for a new life in Genoa City.  Growing up in poverty, she vowed to be a successful health care provider to give back to the community.  Mary Pat attended the prestigious University of Rochester School of Medicine in Rochester, NY and majored in psychology, with a minor in trauma nursing. The late Jessie Brewer of General Hospital was her mentor in the ER.  She graduated in 1977 at the top of her class with honors. 



A rare photo of Mary Pat Ingles, psychologist-- with Miriah Maximilliana Jones. 

Unbeknownst to most of Port Charles, Mary Pat briefly practiced psychology  ...and even counseled a young  Maxie Jones after her sister's death.  Her license was revoked in the late 1990's however, due to her inappropriate relationship with a a patient (now believed to be Ryan Chamberlain). Mary Pat gave birth to a child fathered by Chamberlain but quickly gave the baby up for adoption. She never got over the affair and helped his brother Kevin keep Ryan alive for years until he finally ended up in Ferncliff, a  psychiatric facility located in Attica, NY. 


Mary Pat in her alter-ego persona,   Terry Pat  

In 2008, it was apparent that Mary Pat was headed for a breakdown, especially after her twin sister, Terry Pat was killed in a car accident.  Once Mary Pat learned of Terry's death, she assumed her identity  and went on a cross-country rampage; seducing men and women alike. Many bodies are hid across route 66, never discovered to this day.

What know one knew, not even Mary Pat is that Terry survived her car accident and was nursed to health by Victor Cassadine. She is currently residing in Evia, Greece and plans on surprising the town sometime this winter. 

Mary Pat Ingles final resting place, a barrel full of ripe NY State Gala Apples. 

Memorial service to be held on November the 7th (one day after PC Elections, don't forget to vote!) at the Mason E Dye funeral home. Calling hours 4-8 with coffee provided by Kelly's. Please consider making a donation to the Flat Earth Society of which Mary Pat was an ardent member. 


As an added surprise, we are happy to tell you that Mary Pat and Ryan's biological daughter, Nelle Benson will be attending the memorial. She knew...Mary Pat knew... Ryan never knew. Now YOU Know....happy viewing!

MOVING DAY!



BEHIND THE SCENES!!! 


Today's the big day in our house... "kid" moving out. What a mess everything is lol. Luckily it's not too far. Halloween was a mess for Tillie, she just didn't know what the heck to do!! 

SO, let me know if they find Mary Pat's body today... and what other things happen. I did see a bit of yesterday's show. Peter's cake was pretty, but WHY ARE THEY MAKING HIM NICE? It's totally the Valentin thing all over again. Plus, as you know, Peter bugs the hell out of me anyway. I mean, I don't want Maxie with Chase; he's too Nathan like but still. Let her be alone for awhile, move in with Lulu while Dante's gone. It would be a riot! 

I need a good cocaine dealer. And I say that with tongue in cheek but dang, I'm going to need ENERGY TODAY!!  

BE KIND..and don't eat all the leftover candy.

Vintage GH-O-Ween!!

First off, I watched 30 min of yesterday's GH -- and LOVED Britt!! What fun. Talk about comic relief. She was just dropping bombs all over-- and Lulu with the Margaritas!! I loved it when she said "Kind of hard to picture her and Faison together!! 

You know Mary Pat's not long for this world..not with that hook coming at her. Carly's DNA is probs all over that lady! 

I can't believe I'm going to miss today but it's the end of the month, Halloweenie AND my kid is moving Thursday. It's apparently also time for my first stupid HEAD COLD for the season. Late in the game for me, but bad, bad timing!! 




OH!! "Dante" is back.... DZ tweeted this yesterday-- will he give Lulu the KISS OFF? Or is it going to be a good visit? Maybe they are filming Thanksgiving? 

VINTAGE HALLOWEEN PHOTOS...I think I share most of these every year but they are my favorites!!



CLASSIC, Dr. O and Faison!! 


How young does Maruice look here!!?? Good ol Faith Roscoe, gone to soon.



SKYJAX


Little Emma-!! 


Cam and Aiden ...



LESLIE...


MY FAVE...Joss as Corn!! 


Have a spooky--I hope to get up a photo of Tillie later or maybe in the morning. My son moves tomorrow so I won't be on Thursday either. You'll have a place to comment though. Someone is going to have to tell me all the dirt!!

Comic Relief

Send in the Clowns...

It seems like every GH generation has had one. Sometimes two. And that is the Comic Relief character. It’s the character that breezes in a scene, acts kinda goofy, steals the scene and then breezes out. When compiling this list, I noticed a pattern of the characters. Most of them (not all of them) possessed a vulnerability of loneliness. Sure, some of them did have a significant other in their lives, but there seemed to be an air of loneliness among them. Was there any subtext that the comedy was a mask for tragedy? (get it - comedy and tragedy masks in theatre?) One thing that rang true throughout all of them was that the comic relief character always had the biggest heart on the scene. There was always an unconditional love with the people in their orbit. To paraphrase Stella Dallas, these characters “gave and gave and gave until they couldn't give no more” (I think it was her who said that. If not, someone did and it was a great line)


Comic Relief characters, although written as such, are sometimes unintentional. Amy Vining and Lucy Coe are not your typical CR characters in the same vein as Spinelli. But both of them, in their moments of hyperactivity, displayed a lunacy that was all their own and brought new life to their character and the scene.

With Karen’s help, I came up with 9 characters that I feel could be listed as Comic Relief. I am sure you will agree with many of these. And probably debate a few as well. But the beauty of the Wub Tub Time Machine is that YOU get to comment and discuss and contribute to the blog. So, if you have some comments on today’s blog, please share with the group and let’s all look back together.

PS. As lists are subjective, these are NOT in any order. And is it a coincidence that Lucy Coe is tied to so many of these characters?


Aunt Charlene (and Lucy)
Tiffany Hill (with Sean)
Spinelli (with Carly)
Lucy Coe (with Sigmund)
Reginald
Richard Simmons (with Lucy)
Coleman
Amy Vining
Alice

Note from Wubs: 

Today's blog also serves as the daily blog. Please post your recaps, thoughts and observations on today's episode as well. Giant thanks to DecloDave for this...!

Margarita Night at Floating Rib!!

Sam and Jason.. "talk" to each other while "talking to the camera" in their heads. WEIRD SHIT And come on...SAM HAS DEAD CLUMPS OF MOSS on her coffee table? WITH TODDLERS..or however freaking old her kids are?? COME ON. Jason wants Sam to be honest with Danny about his past. 
Instead of saying "Sonny murdered a guy on orders at 18" JaSam basically said he deserved it. They read Janette's letters, she's the one that asked Scully to kill Mr. Marino..so now she's incriminated in ordering the hit. 

Curtis and Jordan trying to do the seating chart. Blah blah..blah. 

Sonny talking to Michael about stuff and Margot walks in. Sonny's like "she's out to get my head"... Sounded kinky. 

Kevin finds out Laura went to Ferncliff, he's pissed..he's off to get there and Stella stops him in the hall to yell at him. AHHAAA.

Laura and Carly at Ferncliff, demand to see the "Patient" They say he's not in there--but Kevin's laying right under the door so they can't see him. They go into Carly's old room. She starts tapping SOS on the wall...Kevin stirs.  Mary Pat stops. Carly and she trade jabs. Mary Pat says "you don't know everything"... and then Ryan runs in 'What on Earth are you doing here"???  He yells at Carly and Laura.  They leave just as Kevin wakes up. 

Finn and Anna go to jail to see Britt. They stand there and talk to each other for half the show.BRITT IS IN Fine Form!! LOL... "Ooooooo, Dr. Finn, why don't you come here and give me a physical".  Anna says she can arrange a meeting at the Metro for Britt to meet Peter. Probs to get Dr. O out of the shadows.  

BEST PART OF THE SHOW: DA CHICK reminds Michael Sonny killed his father too!!  Michael says "WELL BIG EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES RIGHT THERE"! Pffffffffft. 

I think Ryan will kill Mary Pat.

Sunday Surgery: Pick My Brain


Getting ready to terrorize!!

Did much move this week? Off the top of my head I'd say--no. Anna's back and.... um... Carly and Laura went to Ferncliff. That's all I have. Let's see what happens when I dig into the photos. Maybe something will spark my memory. 

I think it may be time for Dave to step in with one of his Wub Tub Time Machine posts this week? I can't believe I'll probably miss a murder (or so the promos suggest)-- because it's Halloween, the end of the month and my son is moving to his apartment. Dang, real life just swoops in!! 

Should we just eat candy corn today? Yes, I like it. My Mom LOVES it--and would buy bags and store them until they got stale (that's how she likes them...) I guess it's a child hood thing. I would bite off the yellow part and give the rest to my little brother!! LOL.

Day FOUR

Franco and Liz are talking about helping Aiden at school by doing a volcano project with him in front of the class.  Liz "he's sensitive"... Franco "He's weird, and I celebrate weird"!! 

Laura and Carly going to Ferncliff.together..Laura isn't telling Kevin because he's too busy Laura makes Carly watchable!! Seriously. I hope to hell they don't get Jason or Sonny involved in this Kevin rescue. Let the ladies do it. 
They go to Ferncliff... they see mean Nurse-- she was fired

OMG... We are BACK AT THE METRO. Can't they move Sasha's scenes ANYWHERE ELSE? Seriously? It's DAY FOUR of different scenes. She's asking Kiki about Griffin. Ava is there too. She runs right into Griffin who was taking a phone call. 
Kiki's giving Sasha a room. 
Kiki and Griff leave, Ava introduces herself. Tells her she used to go out with Griffin. LOL



Sam and Spin go to see Janette Marino, Margo's mother-- who's nice... but Sam is acting really pissy and not in a 'good caper way"..?? They are pretending to be insurance adjusters. It's falling flat as a pancake.  They are trying to see if Janette knew her husband was killed and when.  Sam finds old love letters she steals. 

Lulu's going to "Kevin" to talk about "Ryan". It ends up being deep and about Sociopaths. 

Kiki goes to see Liz and gives her a RBG doll to say thank you for her help. 


AND............NEWS interrupting. SO... see you on Sunday. I hope--my parents are coming up and who knows 

Thursday, October 25, 2018

SURPRISE! I'm here!


Genie shared this on Twitter


Charlie's....Sonny, Margo-go and Krissy. Sonny tells her who Margot is...Krissy makes her go sit at the table.  Sonny and Krissy talk, he supports her. Reminds her he wants to give her a good birthday in a couple of weeks. 

Spin is back. He's so happy JaSam are "dating" or whatever the hell they are doing. He found out that Margo's mother didn't cash in the insurance policy when her husband went missing.  Sonny comes over eventually. Spinelli says that the insurance company is now opening up an investigation into Marino's death. 

Apparently, Nina can't meet Sasha anywhere but the Metro Cafe/Restaurant. She gives her an amethyest...her birthstone. Maxie sits down...and asks Sasha if SHE has any mental health issues. LOL Sasha says no...but I bet she ends up crazy. Sasha is a 'temp' and Nina convinces her to "temp' in PC. Sounds like Nelle's "teaching job". 

Anna's home, is in Finn's room. I guess it's a surprise. Very cute banter and then then they have sex.  She didn't find Dr. O and decided to come home because she missed Finn. 


Oscar signed up with at "roommate service" to find somewhere to live. Julian comes in. Oscar is like "DID MY MOM SEND YOU"!! Julian says to cool it, he still has a job-- and Oscar leaves. 
AND...Ok, I'm saying it. JULEXIS should be a couple. Damn it. STUPID writing and the whole murder thing but I'm just going to forget it-- yep..NLG and WDV are THAT good. Ugh. WHY doing this to me.  Get him outta that flannel shirt tho.  Alexis thinks that she can help Oscar get to the conclusion  himself. 

Oscar finds out that rent is SO expensive...the girl that passed out fliers for a band..
Daisy, that's her name-- she tells Krissy she has something that can 'take her mind off her problems" A bonfire on the beach.
She also says she can help Oscar find a place to live. She says it's a "place where a bunch of people come and live together, pay what they can and do chores." SUCH a CULT!! She's totally a cult or commune person.


Peter is shopping with Maxie for a costume for James. GROSS.  Just trade Spinelli for Peter. I won't care. 


OH! Britt will be on next week. I can't wait to see she and Sasha stand next to each other. 




Dinner Anyone?



So, it's Thursday and I thought we'd visit more of Soaps Past. Here's a YouTube video of The Goal Post in?? PINE VALLEY!! Tom Cudahy ran it, remember?  Tom, the ex-football player came to the PA town in 1977 to open his restaurant. All sorts of things happened but the biggest one was him marrying Erica Kane. Tom was Catholic....Erica was not.  He wanted kids. Erica wanted her modeling career. She tricked him into thinking she wanted children until...HE FOUND her HIDDEN BIRTH CONTROL PILLS. BOOM! Giant moment. GIANT!! 

I keep going back to AMC because it's the first soap I watched on the regular. When I started GH there was The Floating Rib and the cafeteria at the hospital.  Kelly's is the most famous--and Ruby's Chili! 

What were some of the hang outs on the rest of the channels? I still say we need a pizza shop or Panera type place. I'm sick of coffee shops!!

i got a JOB!

Lot's of convos today: 

Laura with Alexis talking about running for Mayor--or contesting it or something. 

Olivia with a BIG ASS'D Leo at the PUB. Talking about canvassing for Nedly and being a Mayor's wife.  I know they have a kid together but it feels so rando when they talk. She's never on. UGH

Cam letting Oscar crash at this house? HUH? isn't Oscar mad about the Joss thing?? I guess he's not mad but had no where else to go

Carly's talking to Liz about Cam and Josslyn. She wants she and Liz to be on the same page as she is. I missed the rest. 

Diane tells Drew that Oscar can't sue for Emancipation in NYS but he can sue to direct his own medical treatments.



Drew tells Curtis he can't be his best man. Drew says it's for privacy sake. Curtis says I've got your back. Drew says Oscar is sick, he may not make it. 


Kim is at Sam's asking her to help with Oscar.  Kimmy wants Sam to help her with Oscar deciding not to do the trial. She says Alexis is helping him with this. Sam says she can't talk her mom out of anything but knows someone who might be able to. 


SET NOTE: Sam's PH is just --UGH. You have 2 young kids and you don't have some old dead branch on the mantel and some boring contemporary painting. You have family photos and Fall/Halloween decorations. YES EVEN IF YOU'RE SAM.



AND WE GOT interrupted by POTUS.  And MRS. POTUS. 


After the break: 

Drew goes to see Alexis with Diane. They get into it. Alexis says she wants to help Oscar by giving him some power over the situation. Says if Scotty Baldwin takes the case, he'll make it a circus. Drew doesn't care. Alexis says she hopes Drew wins the case. Billy Miller was great in this scene. 

Olivia invites Laura to the Ball and Laura declines. Olivia thinks she's still mad about the election and doesn't know Laura is running. 


Jules gives Oscar a job as long as he stays in school. Kim is mad because it shows Oscar can take care of himself. 

Laura and Carly are going to tour Ferncliff. Carly told her about her time there-- and Laura wants to investigate. Carly says there's a patient there she thinks is in trouble.. (SOS guy). Oh Ok, I can take Laura and Carly teaming up. 

Spinelli is on tomorrow.

Activity Tuesday!

It's Tuesday and I'll be out-- (as I will Thursday!!) So, it's activity today. Put your heads together to work on some soapy  questions. 



What was your first character crush? Mine was the first  Phil Brent from AMC. (Richard Hatch). Although we went on to more fame in Battle Star Galactica ...he remained "my Phil" forever!! He and Tara were deeply in love, planning to get married when he had to be shipped off to Vietnam. So real back then. They were the first to "marry themselves" in a little church before he left. (recreated by Liz and Lucky of GH) and made love. What happened a few years later? HE was alive!! Yep, the first 'back from the dead" story I remember too. 
When AMC premiered I was in elementary school and so ready for some TEEN ANGST on soaps!! I saw the first episode in Patty Andolina's basement. LOL..Crazy the stuff you remember. AMC was my mom and my soap for years. It was on right after lunch and we'd catch it during holidays and in the summer. 




That's my Pine Valley adventure in a nutshell!! BTW, Tara was played by Karen Lynn Gorney. I loved her. Not only because we shared a first and middle name but because she was in between the "good girl" and... well Erica Kane LOL Then she went to star in Saturday Night Fever and my world was so happy!

PS My TV was black and white then as well! I had to go to our neighbors, the Tomkins to watch Christmas shows and things like Cinderella (Stuart Damon!!). Rough childhood lol

Cuervo in the Park

I'm convinced that Oscar is living in that damn park. 



It's Charlie's Pub today.. Drew, Julian, Alexis... Kimmy are all there.  Alexis tries to get Krissy to get a job as an Actuary...boring. Krissy gets all pissy. 

Drew is meeting Oscar for lunch on his Bday. Kim is going to stay. Oscar comes in after seeing Joss at the park and is all mopey with attitude.  They argue...Oscar gets mad at Drew because he had medical treatment HE didn't want. (like it's the same? LOL)...he leaves.

Ryan is putting off Laura. This is not good--a psychopath is a psychopath. JUST DO IT UP.  Scotty comes over, tells Ryan he interviewed for an anniversary article about Ryan Chamberlain. He represented Felicia in court. Ryan gets pissy, storms off. Laura asks Scotty out for a drink. Scott says that when Kevin was with Lucy years ago he left for a long time to tend to a patient. Which is true--that did happen. I bet they'll say it was Ryan! 

OMG So, Carly dreams about Kevin/Ryan tapping Morris Code on the table...then thinks about the hospital where someone was tapping it out. Then she sees Ryan/Kevin in a straight jacket.  Wakes up all shaken

Mike comes back from daycare--Stella is with him. Carly's afraid to put him into long term care because of her time in Ferncliff. Stella assures her that memory care is NOT like Ferncliff. 

Ryan is seeing Alexis for therapy. He's trying to figure out how to treat her based on Kevin's notes.  Asks about Mekkos. She talks about having to give up her baby when she was 17. 
Which later, prompts her to take Oscar's case because she thinks he should decide his medical fate. 

Kristina calls Parker--and Parker is at a mixer. Kristina gets all upset and when Julian tells her she can go home, she steals a tequila bottle and goes into the PARK and chugs it on a bench! LOL Like in the open, in the day!! Since when did she care about Parker??????? Huh??

Best scene was the bicycle scene with Sonny and Mike. Very good.

Sunday Surgery: My Mama is a Moll



BUT FIRST, Let Me Take a Selfie!

This week was especially tough for me because although I mostly had the time to watch, I'd usually turn off the show at it's midpoint. Something no one who's writing a blog and recapping should do. Alas, I did --because I simply had other things I would rather be doing. Having people take an hour out of their afternoons anymore requires a hell of a lot more than well, what I'm seeing lately. Thursday's show was a good one so I'll be happy with that. 

And, since I visited Niagara Falls Canada yesterday, we are all having Tim Horton's coffee and breakfast sammies. Enjoy!

I love Stella

Stella sees Michael looking at the babies in the nursery. She really could be a Mona or a Myrtle..I like her character. (Or a Ruby...although No one could be a Ruby if you know what I mean). They talk about grief and holding on to anger-- Stella with Jordan and Michael with Nelle. 



PETER is near Maxie and the baby. GET AWAY FROM THE BABY!!  Maxie gasps... (see below) 

Curtis/TJ and Jordan. TJ should be at GH doing his medical training ...come on!!! They bitch about the wedding and Stella not coming. 

Sonny and Jason...blah blah...Marino. Sam took over the case from Spinelli because he's on a vacation with Ellie and Georgie. She's doing it without Curtis. She went to the library because the net has not a lot on Marino. Sam and Jason talk about working together. Oh! Sam found a photo of an old parish christmas card at the library and Margot's mom was having an affair with SCULLY! I like the library detail--that was done well.  

Drew and DA Lady talking about taking Sonny down. Drew is like "Why shouldn't I go to the cops"?? She tries to convince him but he says No Dice. 

All of a sudden, Maxie runs into GH with Peter and James--bumps into Michael who's leaving--and says "James has a rash"!! Is he breathing ok?? Michael goes: Um, I'm not a doctor. LOL. WEIRD. Anyway it's not a rash; his PANTS were too tight!! LMAO. he is a big kid. 

TJ goes to talk to Stella about coming to the wedding.

Thursday Do Your Own Thing Day

Everyone has a day to do whatever they want! It's Wubby Hubby's birthday--and I work late as it is so ...no GH today!! 
Not that I'll miss it (hate to say)... Wow, this is a "lull' right now or what?  EESH. I really don't care about Sasha and well, we all know what I think of Peter.  The Ryan/Kevin show is good but predictable (he goes and talks to Kevin... "wife" comes home...Felicia is around now and then). My one shining light? Ava and Ryan. Don't ask me why--other than I love the possibility of two twisted individuals getting together. That and Kiki might die!! 

Ok, so in the spirit of Do you Own thing.. I'm going to present one character that was featured for awhile, then quickly forgotten because she had no ties to town. Anyone remember: 



V?? Or Venus --as we found out her real name was?? Lisa Cerasoli played her and I just loved the character. She was fun and spunky -- Chloe and Ned try to set him up with Simon. She was also involved with Jax. Here's a cute clip:

Everyone have a good one-- it's cold cold cold here now--we've had our first frost of the season! 
You know what that means...snow will fly soon enough!

Park Side Birthday

Laura sees Lulu on the net with Peter at the film fest. She wonders what's going on. Lulu's like: It's WORK, MA. Laura says "Make sure Dante knows you miss him". 

Spencer and Sonny....he knows Mike has Alzheimer's. Then he leaves... then Josslyn comes in. He saw on Social Media that she and Oscar broke up. I guess we will see Spencer with the "Grown" kids--still not being grown. Which I guess is ok by me. 
Josslyn: "Well, you haven't changed a bit".... Spencer "Well, you've gotten way taller" LOL 
He gave her a map of Paris...where he'd like to take her. 

It's Oscar's Bday, he's moping in the park. Cam comes around. He wants to quit the whole thing. OMG Oscar says he'll miss getting ice cream and going to the movies and COULD THIS BE ANYMORE BORING? This is SO DISNEY. I'm sorry but...angst is best served with Teens. As is Raw emotion.

Drew asks Peter "if I get my memories back, will I forget these last 5 years"??  Peter says I just dropped you guys off but probably.  Drew thinks he will forget too--and would forget Sam and Scout and Oscar...yada yada. 

Nina and Maxie. Nina's waiting to meet Sasha. She's afraid she won't come. 

Valentin wants to talk to Sasha. Shasha is like, I'm leaving..BYE. Val pleads Nina's case. Maxie overhears. Valentin pleads Nina's case. Maxie is all "awwwwww" in the shadows, thinks Val is being SO nice. After talking to Val, Sasha goes in to see Nina. Apparently, Valentin just said whatever magic words there was to say.

Too Old for Dolls

Laura makes dinner for Ryan... and has on a nice outfit for once...I loved her leopard cami.. Ryan knew all about the wedding/Leslie coming and the blizzard. She wants to dance. HE gives her a  "LOOK"...she says "what have you done with my husband" . He makes up an excuse he has to leave. 
Charlotte visits Gram with Lulu. She gets a doll but says she's too old. Luckily, Laura brought her a book too. Some french thing.  Lulu whines about Dante

Ryan and Kevin together in Ferncliff.  Good stuff.  He makes Kevin think he's sleeping with Laura lol. 

Drew and Franco talking on the docks about Harvey.. and making them swim. They talk about Oscar. Drew wants to get his memories back to help Oscar.  He tells Franco that he would have to turn in Jason and Sonny to get them back. "Would you do it"?? He asks. WHY the hell wouldn't Drew just go to the WSB and say: "Um, DA chick has my memories on a stick"?? 



Jason finds out that Marino was really 'dirty"... like that should matter.  He bought a house in the Hamptons. Jason wants to know why Scully picked a kid to kill Marino. 

Courthouse. Nelle messes up and says to the baby "You've grown a lot since I last saw you"..Carly jumps in: HOW DO YOU EVEN KNOW THAT?  huh?? Nelle says she saw it on the internet. Then Carly gets mad she gets computer access in jail!! ahahahaa.  So Nelle pleaded no contest. Gets the max. 

Liz and Sam (I still would love them as a couple). ..Liz wants to talk about Drew.  She says that Oscar is pulling away from his friends yada yada.. and Drew is upset. Then Sam says Drew came over when Jason was there. Liz does NOT approve. Sam says none of your biz. Liz says that people get trampled. They argue. Liz wants to get along for "Drew's sake".  They are going to make amends to do that. 



SPENCER is on TOMORROW!

Sunday Surgery: Memory Game

Yet another thrilling week....


Are you sick of my blogs yet? I noticed the other day I've made over 4500 posts. Yep-- 4500.  Going all the way back to 2009. That's a hell of a lot of Sunday Surgeries!!  Forgive me if I get rather--redundant at times.  You all know that I love the show. You all know I think the acting is top notch. You all know I've learned a hell of a lot how the writing, pacing and tempo can be affected by management.  That doesn't make any of this any easier.  So let's go.  

I'll have what Ava's having

Court Date

Friday! I'm here for once!! I may not last the whole show because I slept about 3 hours last night.

I'm steaming some fun shows now to soothe my soul. I think I told you I'm caught up on "The Good Place". I just got into "Dead Like Me" --which apparently, I missed in the early 80's??  I love it! 




Michael and Carly in court. Nelle is there ...WITH super blonde hair!! LOL..seriously? Hightlights in Jail?  Nelle taunts Michael about Jonah's death. Michael says 'you mean nothing to me" Nelle says "I know something you don't and when I tell you it will change everything". 
Chase shows up too. Bitches at her--just like Carly. 

KELLY'S; Outside: Krissy, Sam and Alexis. Molly did well on her GRE's Kristina isn't impressed. She asks Sam about Jason. Brad comes along with the baby and WOW--but Krissy looks sick when she sees it and leaves quick. ANVIL? Sure looked like one. Did anyone else see that!!?? 
Brad has Nelle giving him Wylie flashbacks. 

Inside: Chase and Jordan welcome Valerie to the PCPD. They had lunch together. 

DOCKS: Valentine pays Curtis. Curtis looks very handsome-- Curtis tells Valentin that Nina is meeting with Sasha. Then tells him to not try to get back together with her. Weird scene.

PARK: Liz, Franco and Aiden. Liz is concerned about Aiden at school. You know, if GH thought ahead, Molly could be Aiden's teacher--and working on her masters. I don't think we know what she went to college for. It would have been good.  The teacher left a letter for Liz in his backpack. Liz wonders if that's why Aiden didn't want to go to school. He says yep. 

THE METRO:  Sasha and Nina. Nina asks about the necklace then basically insults Sasha's mom saying "Maybe she didn't want you to have it". Nina suggests they go to Paris together. Sasha says she doesn't want  a relationship with her, she loved her mother (who's dead now). Nina botches the whole lunch. Ends up crying and asking if they can start all over. They are meeting again tomorrow. Michelle Stafford was pretty awesome in those scenes. 

END: Brad walks into the courthouse with the baby and sees Michael and Nelle in the hall. I have no clue why he's there. He must have said but I missed it. 

Krissy and Valerie and walking in the park..Krissy is saying she feels like a failure.
