Watch it after the jump! Then let us if you are ready to watch the final episodes of Jason Thompson in the role of Patrick, and in his final scenes with Kimberly McCullough and Brooklyn Rae Silzer in the comment section below!

    Yup there was Felicia and she’ll basically never be seen again. She is a GH icon, a soap icon really and how gorgeous is Kristina Wagner? But there is no place for her on GH, or Mac Scorpio for that matter.

    Scrubs is exiting and another piece of GH dies. We are now beginning 2016 and can anyone really deny the claims that so many have made that Frank’s goal was to gut GH and make it a new show under his control?

    Patrick is now gone. And he was basically gone for a long time, with no real story, no POV, a legacy character, doctor, great actor.

    AJ is dead, brought back to be killed. Duke is dead, brought back to be killed.
    Mac is basically a memory with a brief stint now to usher the great Scorpio family off the canvas.

    Ric is not on, brought on only to try and prop Nina and Franco. That’s Rick Hearst, who plays a great character and who can act rings around everyone on the show. Kevin is gone, when there was a need for a psychiatrist he was replaced. And Jon Lindstrom isn’t exactly a slouch in the acting department either now is he?

    No Patrick, AJ, Duke, Mac, Ric ,Kevin or Ned. No use for Jax. Robert who knows? We know TR doesn’t have a contract.

    But what do we have? Every attempt to prop up Franco and make Roger, Frank’s friend from OLTL the focal point, including now the Nina pairing. The full court press of the ABC publicity machine working social media to try and sell it. The ex serial killer, all around lowlife who acts like Todd Manning sexing up a 50 year old with the mind of a child.

    Then there’s Julexis. A squish name so irresistible, it demands that Julian be whitewashed and his actual character be ignored.

    GH really is gone. The exit of the Scorpio family is just about the final nail in the coffin. It’s very sad.

    I wish JT the best and of course KMC and my condolences to her on her loss and the tough times she has endured recently. It was very admirable of her to come back to GH for her friend, her fans and the respect she obviously has for the show and its legacy.

    I also wish JT and KMc the best, while I am devastated by them leaving. I fault TPTB for not keeping JT around. Sounds like he wanted to work more or have a bigger storyline and Y&R can do that. KMc is always open for a visit and love that she does this for the fans because she understands her character is a HUGE part of GH history. Now by marriage Patrick and Emma become part of that legacy! No recast for Patrick please!
    How can Nathan Varni in ABC Soaps say Altman and Passanante are planning for more hospital stories and they are light in the doctor department? Feels like a slap in the face since you let JT go and NOW decide this!!
    Where are the characters of GH history? Please dump Franco! RH is a great actor, but not part of GH’s legacy for U.S. viewers who have been watching for years, 30+ yrs myself!
    Is fast forwarding through GH what it comes to now? Not interested in Kiki, Valerie or Franco for sure! Need more Mac, Anna, Felicia and Bobbie too. Where is Lucas?
    C’mon GH step it up! I am afraid for your ratings!

    AJQ replied

    Natalie, more hospital stories means Franco. They have made him a Therapist which is a complete joke, one of many involving this character under Frank and his need to prop up Roger at any expense.

    Not only is Franco being a therapist a joke, given who he is, (not just who he was when James Franco played him, but who he has been since his return) but he has no credentials. Art therapy is not arts and crafts, it is psychotherapy. It requires a specific graduate degree, accreditation. certification and a state license. This is a joke.

    Now with Liz in Franco’s orbit, he will be treating little Jake. This will only alienate viewers who already dislike Franco more. Having him around Liz, Jason’s son and ultimately Jason who will probably show gratitude to Franco for his help. It just mocks viewers unless you are some huge Roger/Todd fan and that is not the majority of fans watching GH but that is how Frank produces the show. It is delusional.

    So neurosurgeon Patrick Drake is gone and the hospital is run by criminal Dr.O and Franco. Good Luck GH.

    A perfect post!

    maddiehayes replied

    Very well said! I think I’m at the point where I was two years ago when Tristan and Kimberly left. Nothing else to hold my interest! They still had Finola and Brooklyn, but they didn’t have a decent storyline, so I quit watching for eight months. Naxie hooked me back in. I can’t think of any storylines right now (Naxie doesn’t have one!) besides the Scorpio/Drakes, that interests me. Watching Jasam/Liason play fanbase tag every other day? No. And every single mobster on the show not only bores me but irritates me. Don’t get me started on Franco.

    Harry replied

    I don’t know you, AJQ, but I love ya.
    Your comment is a sad thing of beauty. The farewell tour of the Scorpio’s was bittersweet indeed as one felt one was saying goodbye to good quality character driver stories and hello to plot based drivel played by characters no one really cares about. The good (Georgie, Allen, Emily, and the flawed but basically good, Duke and AJ) remain dead while the bad (Sonny, Jullian, Ava, Franco, Nina,Carlos) live on like the happy and thriving cock roaches they are.
    And Felicia was allowed to utter five words to Robin which were,”I love you so much.” Right back at ya, Felicia. And yes, she looked gorgeous and ageless.
    I have a faint glimmer of hope that TPWB will recognize the huge and collective positive fan response to the Scorpio family story and will respond accordingly.
    It’s doubtful, however. I think they’re going to go full steam ahead with the insidious and pointless couples no one really likes or cares about.

    Timmm replied

    Felicia who!

    I agree with everything you say the thing is they had every chance to hang on to JT but they did not. The thing about JFP over at Y&R she makes offers you can’t refuse. JT as Billy Abbott will be front burner status again and he will probably make the character his own but first he needs a haircut.

  2. Melissa says:

    Total mixed feelings about this.Hate to see
    JT leave for another soap!!! Stinks!!! And to
    Lose the character of Emma because of it
    That makes it awful!!! She is so good!!!!!
    At least they get a happy ending…….
    Will miss JT and Brooklyn:(

    Natalie replied

    I totally agree! I am devastated by this loss of JT and Brooklyn! Without them in PC there isn’t much of a chance for Kim to visit and she is open to it!

    Tristan replied

    Robin can always visit her mom and uncle Mac. Emma will be visiting Anna: this has been confirmed. So Robin could always bring her, and then pick her up again.

    CeeCee replied

    Hi, Natalie,
    Both Robin and Emma have familial ties to PC; therefore, a visit will always be possible.
    Nonetheless, I just get this feeling Anna/Finola may also be leaving? When Robin asked her to go with them, my heart skipped a beat…LOL….. My brain screaming, NO, NO, NO!!
    Who’s to say Anna won’t follow her daughter and family to California? She may do just that, after all her ‘work’, as she puts it, is done. Obviously, she cannot move a muscle until this Carlos thing is resolved….including Hornsby. Emma may just stay behind with her grandmother until such time as Anna is free. I know, it sounds too rosy and flowery. It saddens me not to see this little girl any longer.

    I barely know them and I’m heartbroken, Rhonda…help me, help me, Rhonda. Forgive me for that…couldn’t resist…but it’s all doom and gloom around here. I would hate to get out my violin.
    Should we believe in the adage…”all good things must come to an end”? Everything changes…but other than a little criticism, what makes it worse for me is getting on these boards and have a chosen few constantly bemoaning everything. By Jove…..I do complain now and again, but not on every post. Golly Gee. So depressing. I don’t come on these sites to get demoralized. WOW…YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE. STOP IT? Just complain a little bit…lol. Not you, Rhonda. Later.

    Finally a happy ending..sad to see Jason Thompson leave but so glad even though rushed. .Robin gets what she deserves Patrick and Emma forever!

  6. Elite Advisors says:

    Interesting….I read somewhere that Emma will stay on…. I am glad to be done with this long over due reunion… it was painful to watch such a great actor like Jason T stuck in the pitiful storylines they relegated to him…hence, I imagine the reason why he left.

    Sometimes it really is time to move on….glad they had a happy ending for once…..UNLIKE DOOL! Now Kate Mansi is leaving…..so that’s really another reason to second guess the writers and their mindset into the future of Days.

    Reply

    Jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Her leaving is why i think they will make Belle and Chad the next Sami and Ej…and i once posted i believe Emma will stay on with Anna…so scrubs might not have their happy ending…i believe Pat and Rob will go on a honeymoon after they rewed and will be in a plane crash or just turn up missing! Or there is a medical crises in some country that they will be called to help with and leave Emma with Anna in order to prevent Emma catching whatever the medical crisis is!

    Reply

    Tristan replied

    Jim, Emma is leaving with Robin and Patrick. JT and KMc have been very clear that this is the Scrubs ending they and the fans pushed for, a happily ever after. That is why KMc returned, to facilitate that for the fans. Re: Emma. Little Brooklyn will be coming back from time to time, per JT, to visit grandma Anna. They are not going to die or go missing. Both actors have already alerted the fans that they will be very happy about this ending. Scrubs gets its happy ending, no qualifications. I suspect Patrick will find a new job in, say, Genoa City.

    maddiehayes replied

    Eww, Belle and Chad are like Eve & JJ to me, she’s almost old enough to be his mom! Chad isn’t that much older than Claire. Please, DAYS, stop with all the cougars, it’s not romantic in the slightest.

  7. Janet says:

    It’s a lovely happy ending for a nice couple who has been through some rough times, sad to see JT go over to another soap but that is what actors due go try other things all the best to him in that dept. For Robin & Emma I will dearly miss them but I hope down the road Emma & Robin comes back into town and visit Anna

  8. Tristan says:

    That picture of the three of them is just precious; Kim in particular is just glowing! Scrubs does get a happy ending, and I have to give credit to TPTB for bringing Kim back to usher JT off the canvas in a way that is meaningful for fans. They could have just killed him off or sent him on his way to another town for another job. So…Scrubs fans should be thrilled that the ending we all wanted is the ending we will get!

    On another site in a thread celebrating Scrubs, fans are complaining that Sam wasn’t invited, that Liz was invited, that Patrick hasn’t given Liz hell, that Patrick got over Sam too quickly and made it seem like Sam was nothing, that Sam and Patrick had chemistry while Robin and Patrick never did…Ridiculous. The “fan wars” are infecting every conversation about GH, at least on that board. I for one just want to express my gratitude that we are getting a fairy tail ending for Scrubs. That is ALL that matters here!

    I will also add this: the GH posters on Michael’s site are intelligent adults who love to argue with humor and talk about the show with verve. It is absolutely the one place I love to post because I know we all “get it.”

    hey Tristan ..
    This board is great, we have Freedom to Express Yourselves, and we have a group respect to give opinions without being attacked..
    My dear board friends here are 20 sides of a coin. Humor to information and ideals, loves & hates.
    ie( My frisky friend CeeCee does not like Sonny, nope nooo way.
    I really like Sonny, and let her know I do as she lets me know she doesn’t ahaaa but always done with friendly banter, a tit for tat sometimes teasing but always said with a smile!
    Michael Fairman is a Prince of a host.. And his reporting, interviews, information are absolutely the best, you can feel his love for the soaps..

    There have been rare times, that a post of mine was not put up and Michael surely held it back so I wouldn’t have to regret looking like a dumbazz for writing it ahaaa!
    (I can, at time get a bit overly enthusiastic aha!)

    I just wanted to say that…….. carry on !!

    I will say… you had even me going with that 2014 storyline… rofl

    I was already zinging… that’s the ep GH should submit for best of show!

    Awwwww, shucks, Suzie Q. I love you, too, babes. You just made my day!

    Natalie replied

    I will not over analyze who was attending the wedding and who wasn’t because I will be bawling they are leaving! Let’s be honest Liz is an outcast right now and won’t make many public appearances yet. KMc is a class act and has always been open to visiting if it works. KMc and JT have such respect for each other and the Scrubs fans that they wanted to give us a happy ending. I am extremely saddened that JT and now Brooklyn are leaving.

    Timmm replied

    I wouldnt care either who is there or who isnt but Sam shouldnt be there because she just came out of a relationship with Patrick AND it would only hurt or confuse Emma.

    @Tristan…Nicely said.

    Patrick replied

    Tristan! that pic above! is the memory I’m taking with me… for one of my most favorite and endearing couples… complete w/Emma.

    “…That picture of the three of them is just precious”

    two huge payoffs !

    1. Robin and Jason… beginning and ending… at the bridge… where they met… is my sendoff of my care of Robin! (white picket fence, intact) this lady… Kimberly McCullough… is the one character of legacy (vet) supercouple… who continued their reign….

    2. Patrick and Robin… remarry, renew their vows… and with the love of their life… Emma! are ONE again!

    we would be hard pressed to think of any other couple…. within the last 10 years… to have witnessed all this ? no? magic when they met… magic when Emma was born…

    heck! mixed with tears, content, and a little heavy heart miss

  9. Ces says:

    It’s inevitable that JT is leaving, Kimberly doesn’t want to stick around, and that means Emma has to leave too. It would make zero sense for Patrick to leave Emma with anyone. At least they have a happy ending. Can’t force actors to stay on a show. Best to all.

    This is what should have happened the last time Robin cane home to Port Charles. I am so pleased to see a happy ending in Port Charles for once.

I just wish there was more time for this reunion to develop, more romance.

    Sonny’s in the promo so I’m guessing he will stop the wedding to gift the happy couple with the news that he can move his knee while Carly shrieks that she can’t find Morgan (has anyone seen Morgan?) giving Patrick, Robin, and Emma ample time to slip out the door and find a new life in a town where the hospital doesn’t play second fiddle to mob bosses and their amnesiac enforcers.

    Natalie replied

    TPTB really missed the boat in not giving better story to JT! GH blew it! He wants to work regularly and being a leading man may have kept him. Yes, I am a Scrubs fan and want Patrick and Robin together and understand KMc wants to only pop in, but I think as a doctor in a hospital soap opera they could have still made it work. Less Mob story please!

    The last few scenes are going to be so hard to watch! Character wise I am so happy Patrick and Robin are getting their happy ending. Let’s be honest, we all knew they would end up together. They are one of those couples that it’s not over till they are together and happy. It’s going to be so sad to not see the Scorpio-Drake clan every day. But now we can all just assume wherever they move to they are having babies (it’s time to give Emma a brother!!) and are blissfully happy.

    Actor wise it is such a treat to see Jason and Kimberly together one more time. With some assumptions and interviews with JT leaving GH was the best choice for him. It’s all water under the bridge now, but GH got what was coming to them. He had to do what was best for him, and as amazing of an actor he is, he needed better story. He’s going to be thrown right in as Billy Abbott and I am so excited for him! Now he’s getting the ending he deserves. One surrounded by the actors he’s worked with for ten years. And the brightest light that’s been on GH Miss Brooklyn. It’s going to be bittersweet to see.

    I can’t wait to see what comes next for Jason, I see endless possibilities with his talent. For Kimberly I hope all her hopes come true. It was a hell of a 2015, and no one deserves a great 2016 more. Now little Miss Brooklyn. I have no doubt she’ll be on stage accepting an Emmy or Oscar in the coming years. What an amazing group of people GH brought together.

    I am so happy about this–and I’m sure I will cry. It’s not often we soap fans get a happily ever after & the show remains on the air.

    I am looking forward to Brooklyn visiting Anna (maybe Kimberly too–but she has bigger ambitions–and I wish she achieves her goals & dreams.

    It is too bad JT “had” to leave to get the respect & storyline he deserved, but short of becoming a mob doctor on call, what could he do?

    As for the wedding list, the ONLY questionable attendee is Carly, whose never had much use or love for Robin. I guess she’s Sonny’s plus 1.

    Reply

    Tristan replied

    Spoilers suggest that Carly is there to bury the hatchet with Robin and thank her for her sacrifice, which resulted in the return of everyone’s favorite hit man. If that is true, I am glad Robin and Patrick leave with a clean slate, leaving no bitterness or unresolved issues in their wake. Having Carly make up with Robin is a good thing, and long overdue.

    Reply

    Lucy D. replied

    Thanks for the scoop. I’m hating on Carly so hard right now, it matters not to me. She’s grateful to Robin for “saving” Jason–but hates Liz for taking care of him. She’s a raging hypocrite & I’m sorry Helena is not around to curse her as well

  17. Donna M says:

    gald scrubs got a happy ending. Unpopular opinion but think MAC is total bore and don’t care if I ever see him again. Not about Frisco, although that relationship and story more fun when we see felica —she is just not the person she was. All she does is tell mac how great he is and( at least in the past )she and Mac rag on Frisco. She does nothing fun or feisty anymore.
    TPTB are right not have them on…they have no conflict and as two ‘good people’ no story.Too old and not belivable as “detectives” ..Did Mac ever solve a crime ? Never believed him as a detective.. detectives are not goody 2 shoes.
    Now that scrbs are completely gone see no use for them. Anna has plenty of other sources for interaction.

    A shout out to Jean and Shelly. You said you would add more depth and love on GH. You said you would write more stories with a beginning, middle and end. You said you would refocus GH and concentrate more on the hospital. Well, only time will tell BUT to bring Kim back to send Jason off correctly and reunite the Drakes is commendable! It could have been done off screen and been written sloppy but you two did the fans right and I thank you. With all the guns, the cheating, the back from the dead stuff, this is a relief. THREE characters leaving and living happily ever after! I love it!

    Shay replied

    Whilst they may have gotten this one right, Timmm, there’s still too much of the same old, same old remaining. Best case in point? Alexis-At-The-Ready and her breakfast roundtable discussion of her favorite subject…SEX! Can this weirdly wanton woman never give it a rest? If she isn’t actually engaging in it, then she’s talking about it! Remember when I recently suggested Molly must have been switched at birth because she’s so unlike Ms. Davis? Well, I stand by my assertion….no creature that sensible and even—God forbid—willing to entertain the notion of long-standing celibacy could have sprung forth from the womb of Alexis….that would simply be a genetic impossibility! However, as for Kristina?….Well, that’s another story entirely….besides the obvious physical similarities, when this troublesome trollop implored Sam to go bar-hopping to pick up men on New Year’s Eve, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that the Corinthos chickadee was a genuine-issued chip-off the-old-Alexis. (I just hope that the finally sensible Big Sis Sam advised her to first obtain any future one-night stand’s name, age and serial number in the event Davis family history repeats itself and Krissie finds herself um, with child.) Okay, I’m done for now…..Toodles, Timmm!!!

    Are you not encouraged that women Alex’s age are hot and hungry! I would be in heaven if I went out with a date, we ate french toast and bacon in a diner and all she could talk about is sex this sex that! [There goes my good guy reputation!] Molly is a nun in disguise! Usually the melons dont fall far from the tree! See what you started Shay!

    At the least Julian doesn’t have erectile cancer ahhaa!

    Shay replied

    LOL, alright Timmmster….I get YOUR point, but from my perspective, Alexis and her most obvious obsession with sex is waaaaaay overdone! It would be for any of the females in Port Charles, but the fact that we practically never hear such similar talk from GH’s more, ahem, “youthful” characters makes it all the more blatant and appalling to get this steady stream of sexual sentiments from a woman pushing 60. If Maxie doesn’t have to overshare about her romps with the dishy Nathan, nor Lulu or Kiki, even Sam or Liz, go about town telling all and sundry of their bedroom escapades, then why on earth must we be regularly subjected to this tacky, over-aged tart with her erotic activities and chitchat? There is simply no sense of proportion here, and that is what I find to be so objectionable. In the beginning it was merely laughable, but it’s gotten to the place where now it’s purely disgusting. We more than get that “Alexis-At-The-Ready” is always up for “raunch and roll”….she can’t get enough of it! Okay, but must this notion constantly be shoved to the fore, particularly by a woman whose repeated past involvements have hardly been an example for any chick to emulate—let alone her own three daughters, who by the way, were each fathered by a different man under less than optimum circumstances???? Just some food for thought there, Timmm, be it as a French toast and bacon breakfast fantasy set in a diner or…..whatever! Later!

    Shay replied

    Well, su, if Julian were not tethered to the AARP poster girl for unbridled lust and licentiousness, he would have a vastly different image. He sizzled with Liv, and in addition to her, there are a number of other more suitably-aged women swanning about Port Charles who could show him a good time. Like say, “Brazen Hayden?” Bet he’d “butter her muffin” just fine!!! Let’s cut him loose from that old ball-and-chain before it’s too late and he’s trapped in the matrimonial handcuffs with “A-lexis Sexis!”

    Harry replied

    Timm, I think what is irking Shay is what it irking me–Alexis keeps acting like a virgin, kissed for the very first time…..like a virgin…whoa, whoa, whoa
    Wait, I lost my train of thought. Turn off that drum machine! Alexis is on the repeat cycle of discovering her sexuality and it’s redundant, boring and odd.
    Alexis and Nina are card carrying members of the over fifty born again virgin club.
    Both women need to take a cue from Anna–Anna is sexy and one knows she is passionate because she shows you, she doesn’t tell you by ramming a soap filled sponge down your throat. With Alexis, and now with Nina, there’s a sense of me thinks thou protests too much.

    Harry replied

    PS> I loathe Julian with the heat of a thousand suns too. I couldn’t care less with whom he ends up.
    The other day he tattled on Anna for being “inappropriate” in front of his fiancee and daughters by referencing the fact that she has not forgotten he had Duke killed. What a whiny, little metrosexual baby. And Alexis KNOWS her man had Duke killed and yet she stands up for him against Anna. What a terrible role model she is for her daughters. And what a hypocrite!
    I once loved the character of Alexis but she has been ruined for me.

    rebecca1 replied

    Once again, against my own will, I am compelled to respond to comments I cannot believe that are being made by a few on female sexuality. It’s beyond galling, naive and judgmental.

    Let’s combine the reality with fiction:

    Alex is beautiful. Nancy Lee Grahan is beautiful. The reality? It’s subjective as beauty always is…but I think “both” women are…

    According to some here, an over fifty woman in a soap opera shouldn’t want sex, crave sex, be incredibly over-the-top hot for someone and crazy in love. Not Alexis…nor the actress. Nor should, I assume, Christy Brinkley, Cher, Helen Mirren, Juliana Moore, or innumerable non celebrity women of a certain age. Why? Because apparently they die.Or their sexuality does. Some keepers here of proper moral decorum feel that it’s “not appropriate.” So now it seems a man knows just how attracted and sexual a woman should feel at that age…and women here who have not yet reached that age know how they’ll feel if…when…they get to that age. I’m not at that age yet but I hope I’ll always be that attracted and sexual.

    The resentment I feel comes is directed at others who are basing their opinions on Alexis…who is a fictional character over fifty…(as well as in real life) on their belief that women in real life would…should…never express their love and attraction to another…whether it be in a meaningful relationship or other, so passionately, sexually.

    Let’s also not forget, getting back to tbe soap, that everything Julian and Alexis does is behind closed doors. Why shouldnt, wouldnt two people wirh a fierce attraction for each other want to rip each other’s clothes off? I feel bad for the few who think when they get past fifty they should start wearing turtle necks and trade long, deep kisses (with plenty of hot, steamy groping!) for cordial pecks on the cheek and a warm hug.(Though those are always welcome too!)

    Comparing Anna to Alexis. Why? Alexis is sharp, sarcastically witty, a great mom who NEVER left her kids to explore her wild side (as Anna did…so if one wants to compare…who’s tbe better mom….But I digress, I love Anna, as well.) And if I recall, Anna was once on her way to being quite sexual with Luke.

    For the longest time Anna, Alexis, Monica, Tracy were NOT seen as sexual…writers are now catching up to film and prime time. And, it’s about time! Some fans here act like kids who cant think if their parents having sex. The “ewww” factor. That’s natural…but so is hot sex at any age!

    No matter. GH is not Downton Abby…this is not the early 1900s and women have displayed healthy sexuality for decades in cinema and in more recent years, on TV.

    Get over it…or get thee to a nunnery!

    Lol…really?

    Melissa replied

    I agree with those who say that female soap characters over 50 should absolutely express their sexuality and interest in sex. Women over 50 in real life do, so why not our soap characters? And male soap characters over 50 engage in sex all the time and no one is complaining about their loose morals (hello, Sonny). But here’s where I kind of sympathize with the anti-Alexis crowd — she always seems so desperate to be with a man — and it’s ALWAYS a bad boy. She comes across as someone who feels incomplete when she’s not in a relationship, even though she is a highly educated, highly successful career woman who has raised a family of strong daughters on her own. And I also agree with those who are not big Julian fans. To me the guy has almost zero personality.

    So now mad, passionate sex between adults behind closed doors is “high school” behavior. So sad…yet so glad to be a card carrying college graduate who still engages in wild, passionate “high school” sex.

    Let the freak flag fly, get up off your ass and dance (like no one’s watching), shake that thang, work that thang and get down on it. And may the “moral” minority…never darken your footstep….

    Shay replied

    That’s it exactly, Harry!!! The always sensuous and suitably well-attired Anna conducts herself with the utmost dignity and class, and even though I was less than enthralled with her sordid little Sloane sexcapade, she picked herself up, dusted herself off and proceeded to act like an adult woman after the fact, not some braggadocious biddy compelled to proudly announce her less-than-admirable activities to the entire town ala Alexis. Both Nina and she behave like silly schoolgirls who have just discovered the joys of sex and it’s patently absurd, not to mention totally unrealistic! The only way Alexis-At-The-Ready could be so highly charged at her age would be if she were triple-dosing herself with HRT, and Nina’s breathless delight at rediscovering the throes of passion with the likes of Franco is just plain laughable…neither of these women inspires any sort of excitement by getting their over-50-ish freak-ons….rather than seeming empowered, they are simply mock-worthy!!! (At least Nina has the excuse of long-term mental incapacity, but where the delusional Alexis is concerned, there are just no reasons on earth for this pathetically wanton creature to keep “banging on” about her repetitive rounds of raunchy rumpy-pumpy with her turtleneck-clad peacock of a mobster. ….nobody cares!!!! Oh, and incidentally, I truly wish Julian’s penchant for that particular style of pullover would rub off on Ms. Davis….if anybody could benefit from such conservatively-clad chest coverage, it would be Alexis! And one more thing…..would the writers please quit inventing excuses for Diane and her legal expertise to be absent from the canvas? It’s sooo plainly obvious that they are keeping her away simply to make Alexis look relevant and give her something to do besides engaging in carnal knowledge with Julian…..which only lends credence to the notion that Ms. Davis is superfluous and unnecessary. The attention wasted on her character would be well devoted to other “mature” ladies such as the fabulous Laura, Tracy, Monica, and yes, most especially, the aforementioned Anna and Diane Miller!

    Okay, so what have we learned here. Oh yes, Harry and Shay are pros and keep their excitement under the covers, under cover! If I was in a relationship with either of you two I would think there was something wrong with ME based on your lack of enthusiasm! But I digress because I’m just kidding with you two! I see what you guys are saying, be happy but not act like a high school lover when you have been out of high school for THIRTY years! I like Alexis but she does need to ask Liv where she bought those sweaters! But you mentioned Dianne. What about Ric? He is an attorney, a great actor and has plenty of stories in him? Is he off the show or back burned? I like him and Sonny’s relationship now and Jason needs a good attorney. Later Shayter!

    CeeCee replied

    I caught one last line, Shay….because it was there.
    I have studied SHAKESPEARE extensively. He is my favorite everything. I know his word inside out. Just for interest sake, “Get thee to a nunnery”, actually means the opposite as what is says. Good, ole Willy loved using words metaphorically….’nunnery’ means ‘brothel’ when so despicably spat by Hamlet to Ophelia. He was disgusted with himself and he did not want Ophelia to ‘spawn’ a facsimile of himself.
    It amazes me to no end how words and their meaning; phrases and their intention, get twisted. We all know sex does not sto at 50.,,, that is utterly ridiculous. If sexual contact stops, then, it is not healthy. However, neither is the insatiable thirst of constant sex….then, it becomes a sickness, regardless of age. You know exactly what I am saying, right, Shay?
    As far as Nina….it’s about time she experienced sexual gratification again, after such a long time. Nonetheless, I am sure, Harry, that Nina and Franco will not allow sex, albeit one of the topmost ingredients in a relationship, to be the primary tie/component that keeps them together.
    My issue is that I want to see more from Julian and Alexis….like a family atmosphere….still waiting for that….not just their sexual trysts, in the afternoon….which is great, by the way. Any stolen moment heightens the encounter. But, I do not know another side to this couple. It is not realistic. That’s just how I feel snd I will express it. Soon, babes. Forgive typos.

    I hate to disagree with the onsite Shakespearean scholar…and let it be noted that I haven’t responded to any of your comments…but it was you who gleefully joined this thread…by special invitation via your bud here, and decided to correct or indirecty insult my intelligence. Sigh…so let me school the teacher by explaining “Get thee to a nunnery,” has several interpretations and is discussed often. It has been said that Hamlet, in the midst of his rage, wanted Ophelia to join a convent…to take a vow of chastity…for men are all sinners. Or, in his rage, he could be calling her a whore who should enter a brothel.
    My usage of the quote was related to the first interpretation. But thank you for your attempt at enlightening us…

    Shay replied

    @Timmm…..Oh, you have me pegged, Timmmbo! I’ve always been the “ice princess,” butter-won’t -melt type…I’ve simply LOVED to keep the guys guessing! Even if they’ve had me at “hello,” they were still left wondering when it’s been time to say “goodbye!” Well, maybe NOT totally, but I do believe an air of mystery adds so much to a relationship….and that extends to one’s wardrobe! So, yes, I must confess, I do wear turtlenecks, and have for many of my years….LOL. They are sleek, elegant and leave SOMETHING to the male imagination! (Especially in black cashmere…combined with my “whiter shade of pale” skin that’s—in fact–even fairer than that of “Lady Liz,”….it gives off a Gothic vibe….and by the way, I’ve twice answered your query on that very subject, but apparently, you never received my responses.) Having said that, you have most definitely caught the gist of what I was endeavoring to say….yes, by all means embrace the “inner glee” of a schoolgirl romance, no matter your chronological age, but for goodness’ sake, conduct yourself with the personal dignity and emotional maturity indicative of someone who has actually matriculated past that giddy—and often goofy—stage of life! In other words, keep it classy!!!! (Ala Anna…..for example!) As for Ric, he’s often been a bit too reptilian for my taste, hence the less of him the better, but for the life of me, I cannot understand why that sassy, snarky, sharp-as-a- tack Diane is not put on frontburner status….she is such a superb, shining example of the female species and an absolute glory of a lawyer….she not only puts the subpar Alexis to shame, but all the other attorneys in Port Charles, as well!!!!

    Shayster, is that a challenge? I could make the walls of an igloo melt in Alaska! I know, you girls like the dark, mysterious types! Damn those romantic novels! I wear mock turtles and I get teased all the time! [Are you mocking me?] Isnt it funny that the color black looks the best on a pasty white body? Goth girls scare me! I’m afraid they are going to cut things off! Yeah, sorry, I didnt receive some of your responses BUT I get it now that you like to tease and wear turtlenecks, the opposite of Alexis. She wears her emotions and boobs on or out of her sleeve/top! See, I’m the opposite, not a fan of Dianne’s but love Ric. Yes Ric is two faced but he can act and he and Sonny are explosive together.

    Hey, you. Pasty body? I have the same coloring as Shay…but, I stop at ‘pasty’. I do not possess many turtle necks. I love red…tight ones. Off -the-shoulder black sweaters are more my style…..and, cropped ones, as well…especially with jeggings. Lol. How do you like that, Harry?

    Fear not, you needn’t be “in-timmm-idated” by this girl, Timmm!!!! I’m really quite civilized and no “Goth Chick” at heart….I merely share the same ghostly pallor and penchant for predominantly black wardrobes….hence the resemblance is purely physical! LOL…..Other than that, I’m very cool, calm and collected, reserved and most proper, in fact…stiff upper lip and all that…..really rather Anna like, in that respect. As for those tall, dark and handsome types? No, CeeCee is the one that goes for them….I like the blond boys, always have, always will! (Though the mysterious part definitely works for me…..) But I digress….yes, quite mercifully, I am the EXACT opposite of Alexis! (I thank my parents and the superb upbringing they afforded me for that fact….) As for Ric, I’ve just never taken to him….perhaps it’s his familial ties to Sonny, or the disturbing influence of his father, Trevor, but suffice to say, he gets his evil ways honestly…they were inborn! (And he certainly doesn’t disappoint when it biols down to doing what comes naturally, be it in business or personal dealings!) However, for the life of me, I would never wish that smarmy snake upon the lovely Lady Laura….she’s already suffered beyond reason for her previous associations with Luke and Scotty. Until someone truly special enough to deserves her comes along, she should just stay happily single…..unlike Alexis, our Laura is a grown-up who can enjoy her own company and get on with things without the constant presence of a man. She is woman….hear her roar! (However, know who would be the perfect equal for Ric? Ava! They are both amoral, avaricious creatures….so next time Ric falls out with his half-bro—which should be any day now if history serves as a predictable guideline—he should simply sidle up to Ms. Jerome for some divine vengeance!) Later, Timmbo!!!!

    In “TIMMM-idated”, love it! So CeeCee chases Joe Clark and you chase Jasper Jax! Thats good, neither of you should ever cross paths and get jealous at one another! Anna is sweet and petite and most of all classy, yes she is a winner! If Laura hooks up with a classy dude she will be or they will be boring. She needs someone to take her out of her comfort zone. We’ve already seen too much of Laura rocking in a chair! Ric would test her heavenly morals! I do like your angle though with Ric and Ava. THAT would light Sonny’s fire! Later Shayter! PS: See you in GOTHam City!

    Shay replied

    Hah, glad you liked it, Timmm!!! Yep, it would seem that my bestie, “DoubleC,” and I have different tastes in men, and oddly enough, such has always been the case for me in real life, too….all of my friends went for the darkly handsome types, and I was enamored of the fair-haired boys, so it all worked out quite lovely! (I guess it’s true when they say “opposites attract,” because I’m strongly reminiscent of Anna in terms of stature and style, although her hair is darker than mine.) As far as Laura and her next amore’? I’m all for dashing and daring, ala Jax or Scorpio….I simply don’t want to see her go down that crafty criminal path again like she did with Luke and even Scotty. She deserves some happiness sans the danger this time around! And speaking of Scorpio, if we are so blessed to have him stick around in Port Charles, I should love to see him reunited with Anna…they are fabulous together! But if not, then Laura and he could make a very compatible couple, what with all their shared history! Just a thought. But Ric? No, just NO! I could barely stomach him with the luscious Liz….he definitely belongs with a woman as corrupt as himself, and yes, Ava certainly fills that bill. Her dalliance with Paul really doesn’t work for me….I expected him to display better taste, even if only as a pretense, so I am really repulsed by that particular pairing! (Isn’t he also a bit old for Ava??? She likes ‘em young! LOL….) Anyway, if “GOTHam City” is next on the itinerary, I guess I shall have to pull out the old “black catsuit!” MEOW!

    I think it was a mistake to have Paul be corrupt. I love the actor and I wish he were more of a decent person. I dont like Ava at all and those two are stomach churning! I prefer Moran and Ava before her and Paul and I hated the pairing of Morgan and Ava from the start! How in the hell can a daughter even be in the same room with her mother AFTER she slept with her boyfriend! Liz will get to redeem herself and I hope it is with Lucky. JJ isnt available so I am all for Greg stepping in. I liked him and I thought he and Laura acted well together as mother and son. Later Shayter!

    @Timmm, and Shay:
    Ti-immm, my guy!!!!! Shay told me to check this thread out. I thought it was done….but, it seems to have gotten more interesting. I am glad to see that my moniker for Alexis AT-THE-READY, is still alive and well.
    Look, it’s like this. I can appreciate any man wanting a wanton for a sexual partner. But, what Shay and I try to impress, is the fact that it is not realistic. Any woman with such constant sexual hunger and robust appetite is medically and desperately sick. Yes, there is such an illness. I am not saying Alexis suffers from such an ailment; however, in our world, especially someone as busy as Alexis, constant copulation is not realistically foremost in a normal woman’s mind. Absolutely nothing to do with age…….I’m mot even thirty…….my husband ‘wishes’ I were more ‘pliable’ with my time…LOL. But, he’s busy, too. It is unfathomable for a woman, especially an older woman to have these constant cravings. I like Nancy; I think she one beautiful looking woman with a great body….just don’t shove it in my face ….way too ripe. Now, is this the character? If so, wardrobe should dress her accordingly, albeit, Alexis looks so much demurely attractive, lately. I am in the same predicament as she, or all those other women whom God decided to give us more than we need , in the endowment department. When I reach a certain age, I will not be as demonstrative in my choice of habillement . There is no comparison between Alexis and Olivia…..she keeps ‘them’ in check . Don’t get me wrong, though……I find Olivia just as trashy in the other sense. And, she knows Julian’s heart belongs to Alexis, regardless of how I feel about Alexis…..so, Olivia is coveting someone else’s man. That is one of my worst pet-peeves. Not only that, she is a nosy busybody, who should keep her words to herself when it comes to Lulu and her marriage. I love my mother-I need-law; but, she was set straight from the get-go, for the sake of harmony. I suppose an Italian woman had not dealt with a Viking woman before…LOL.
    Good-bye, my friends…luv-ya both.

    Double Cee, what took you so long? We have been talking about you! Ha ha ha! With men its always sex, sex and sex! We dont perceive women as having the same drive or constant thoughts. Alexis is refreshing in that she shows that some women have a high sex drive and want to rock and roll all night! It comes off as cheap. But maybe we are only seeing a part of her life and beyond the hour we see on TV maybe she is hard at work and wears sweat shirts and loose pants? I wouldnt be attracted to Alexis because I’m not a fan of a women who wears everything on the outside. To me its a sign of “Look at me, look at me!” I like the face, personality and then untie the bow and go from there! Some guys like the forwardness of girls but I just wander what kind of trouble lies ahead when the puppies are out of the basket? Anyway, I’ll leave my two favs with this, the thespian known as Kardashian, specifically Khloe, who was on Howard Stern the other day and she left the audience with this advice. “When in doubt, wear the titties Out!” And there you have it. A multi millionAIReHEAD who is laughing all the way to the bank. Luv you guys, bye!

    @Timmm.
    I normally don’t go back to past sites….but, Shay told me to check the site out. So I did. And, I’m glad I did. Some obsessions die hard. Lol. I love Mr. Fairman for this opportunity. I never thought I could feel so close to anyone online unless I knew that person. Amazing.

    HaHa. I see, I see, I seeeee!! I have always been a tease, Timmm. I still am, in fun…..with my husband; by first, my one and only. I will never lose either my sexuality or sensuality. Nonetheless, it needs to come naturally….some of us do not even have to try…it just is. Lust is great, but what Alexis displays is not real. Although no lady should be compared to anything Kardashian; I have no problem showing cleavage….but, no one should be subjected to wrinkled, pendulous cleavage. Twenty years from now, I will retire my cleavage….not for public consumption. LOL. I don’t know why that is so hard to digest. I am prepared to age gracefully….aging is part of life. I look forward to everything that God has in store for me….hopefully good stuff.
    I am sure Nancy wears comfy clothes. We all do. I wear flannel bottoms and loose sweat tops in the house. And, woolen house booties. I hate slippers.
    But, when Alexis is in a courtroom setting, she should dress as a lawyer is expected ..two piece suits…perhaps a pencil skirt, slitted in the back and fitted jacket with silk shirts. What do you think? Lol. Also, the reality of a busy lawyer having afternoon delight is impractical and unrealistic, especially with her kids in and out of the house. Honestly, if my mother acted like that in public, I would die of embarrassment. It’s a soap….not to be taken seriously. At night, in the privacy of their room, is a completely different story. Do you remember when she and Julian were going at it in the living room and Sam and Patrick walked in? That’s what I’m talking about, baby. Fohgetaboutit !!!!!!
    Love you too, my friend.

    Timmm replied

    CeeCee, I am also grateful to Mr. Fairman. I have been watching soaps for years and always felt like the Abbotts and Quartermaines were part of my life and I laugh and cry right along with them. People who dont watch soaps dont get this and laughed at my silliness. Now, beyond my soap operas, I have soap friends. I agree with you, I never thought I could bond with anyone online and feel so much love for them. As I stated to you before, I dont get the obsession with Facebook and Twitter but I dont care if others are hooked. I’m just more about seeing people in front of me and reacting! But then there is this, faceless people who I never have met but feel compassion and love for! If this site went down it would be like cancelling another beloved soap in my opinion! But anyway, tease away, its fun! Just because you are married doesnt mean your dead! Just be respectful to your husband and hope that he gets that were all just crazy SOAP HEADS who have this one single obsession that we all feel so strongly about! Cee YOU later!

    CeeCee replied

    @Timmm.
    Awwww, my Timmm. You made me cry. So sweet ….I feel the same way. I have been obsessed with soaps since I was a little girl….everyone in my family is….well, not my dad or husband…too busy. Even my older brother watches with his wife. My husband has no choice, some nights, because I watch in bed, he’s stuck, lol. I don’t know what I would do, if soaps just up and disappeared. I shudder at the thought. This is why I cringe when some posters have to rain on our parade where we can’t say what they don’t like. Kill joy. I think these actors expect the criticism….if they don’t, then they are the naive ones. When in the public eye, one is subject to all kinds of feedback….the bad with the good. If they cannot handle it, then they are in the wrong business. I think we are pretty tame comparatively speaking.
    Anyway, my husband knows how I feel about my soaps. It’s no different than how he feels about his sports…baseball, football, hockey, basketball, what else is there? He watches all of them…oh, and soccer. So, he gets it!!
    How inventive of you, Timmmbo…Cee YOU later. Yup,same here. Luv-ya.

    Shay replied

    @Timmm….I totally agree about Paul….Initially, was so thrilled when Richard Burgi joined the GH cast, because finally there was a polished, debonair adult male on the canvas in the form of Mr. Hornsby….and even though I was aware of his character’s rather nefarious past, I had hoped that if he hadn’t totally reformed, then he’d at least be part of that upper-crust cartel that was simply looking to take over ELQ and not a member of the sleazy Jerome-Corinthos crowd. Needless to say, I was most disappointed when Paul was shown actually pulling the trigger and consorting with the dingy likes of that mad dog , Carrrrrr-LOS! There seems to be no saving the man’s image now….it’s quite one thing to be a lout of an ex-husband, but a down-and-dirty criminal kingpin is quite another thing…too bad. Paul could have been a real keeper! As for Ava, I never really liked her and the way she so brazenly imposed herself upon Port Charles….the only time I found her bearable was during the end of her pregnancy and subsequent illness, but once she reverted to her rotten core, that was it for me. To say I wouldn’t miss her—or her tawdry assignations—ick!—-were she to leave town is an understatement! In terms of Laura and son Lucky, ala Greg Vaughn? Whilst I agree he did a serviceable job when he was on the show before, I just can’t equate him with JJ’s take on Lucky….Jackson is the “Cowboy,” after all!!! It’s rather like the “Robin” dilemma…..you couldn’t have the original full-time, so should you finally give in for a so-so recast? I just cannot go there with Lucky….sorry, but I can’t! Lastly, you needn’t apologize for your less than enthusiastic feelings toward cats….truth be told, I completely despise them, despite the notion that females and felines are famous friends….the mere mention or sight of them makes me see red, so no explanations necessary!!!! On the other hand, “CatWOMAN” is a totally different “animal”…LOL….especially in the fit and fabulous form of Julie Newmar! Hers is the quintessential portrayal of the role….she was sheer purrrrrrr-fection!!!! (Hey, I couldn’t resist that one….) Oh, and that sleek liquid-like black catsuit into which she was poured just goes to prove my assertion that leaving something to the imagination is far more sexy that letting it all hang out like Alexis! Ta-ta, Timmmbo! (Wink, wink….)

    Timmm replied

    Well, I think the big difference in comparing a Lucky recast to Robin is a Robin recast never happened. Greg came in as Lucky and I thought he did well. No, there is no one like the “Cowboy” but that cowboy rode off to Nashville! [Thank, thank you very much!] I’m with you and we are probably in the minority but if Ava were to leave town I wouldnt shed a tear! She is evil. OMG, we got a winner here! I thought I was the only one living in a CAT WORLD! I swear every other shopping cart at Target has kitty litter in it! Nothing against cat owners but to me cats just always seem like they are going to tear your eyes out! Julie Newmar. I am so impressed that you would know that name. SHE is the CATS meow, above and beyond all the others! She was so sexy. In those days you coudnt even expose your navel so I really give the costume designer credit for designing something sleek and sexy without crossing the line. I’m still like that today. I like sexy, I dont care for sleaze! I know, I’m in the minority! I go to clubs and see girls letting lose and it just amazes me. They will say, “I cannot meet a good guy, they all want the same thing” as her azz cheeks are pouring out of a mini mini skirt! Ha ha ha! My biggest fear, yes its cat related, is finding the purrrrfect girl only to discover she has three cats and volunteers at the animal shelter on the weekends! THAT would be a CATatrophy! Later Shayter!

    Shay replied

    Hey, Timmmster! I agree that Greg Vaughn was good as Lucky….he just wasn’t GREAT in the way that JJ is/was, so I am hesitant to “settle” back into that safe, comfortable groove that was “NuLucky.” (It’s actually too bad that he had to be a recast, because he would be a welcome return actor to GH….my dilemma with him is much like Emme Rylan as NuLulu…she’s perfectly nice and serviceable in her role…I like the actress, but she just isn’t Lulu for me…not like Julie Marie Berman was. Same situation). Having said that, I would be happy if we simply had the resumption of other beloved characters coming back to Port Charles, even as recasts, if it meant the endless parade of newbies could be staunched…so few have truly been accepted over these last few years, so the last thing GH needs is another one….or two…or three. (Just look at how many we’ve already had darkening the Port Charles doorstep since the departure of those three leading soap stars Geary, Easton and Thompson…it makes no sense to get rid of major players only to replace them with unknowns as characters that don’t tie in with the history of GH.) As for Julie Newmar, I’ve seen her countless times as Catwoman, what with all those old reruns of the classic Batman series…they’re even running on MeTV right now, I believe. She’s one beautiful, statuesque lady….nobody fills that catsuit like she does, and even though she’s around 80 now, she is still very attractive….extremely elegant! Furthermore, I do so hear you about crazy cat people…I can’t stand to be behind them in line at the store, especially the grocery, when they have their mega bags of kitty litter and MeowMix (or 100 or so cans of food!)…those products smell, I’m sorry, but they do! I don’t want my organic yum-yums placed anywhere near them!!!! (LOL….) Hence I avoid those individuals like the plague….but no matter how assiduously one tries to sidestep the situation, you always encounter at least one of them in real life. I have a friend who (thankfully) lives cross-country and she has three of those moody beasts, and went to the extreme lengths of buying baby monitors so she can be at the beck and call of her demanding felines no matter where she is in the house at any given time or hour. I’m sorry, but that’s tooooo much! If she hears so much as a single meow in the middle of the night, she’s out of bed and hightailing it downstairs to see what pussycat wants….I cannot even talk to her about this, as I was so “purr-turbed” when she informed me of her “purr-chase.” (In fact, we have to completely ignore the subject when we talk on the phone, she’s that obsessed with her kitties! On a more positive note…..she loathes Alexis as much as I do, so she is not devoid of all common sense…haha! And yes, she’d be livid that I referred so derisively to her furballs online, because cats are better than people, don’t you know???) Okay, enough of that subject, Timmbo…we are clearly on the same page here…..however, I do hope when you meet the woman of your dreams that she is as vehemently anti-cat as I am….then you’ll never have to worry about one (or more like a dozen….) of them getting past your front door when you two eventually wed! (Oh, by the way, I just read of some fanatical femme who owns 1000 cats, no kidding!….Uh, you’ll definitely want to avoid her!!!!) Well, enough of all this “cat chat”…I just can’t take it anymore, plus it seems we have exhausted most of the cute, cliche’ applications for feline-fitted words, but it was a fun-tastic “cat-fest” whilst it lasted!! Let’s “paws” and “stray” back to “catty” comments about the “flesh flashers” and leave the kitties behind, yes? Have a wonderful, meow-free day, Timmm! Later….

    Happy for Scrub fans..
    Long live the Drake’s in hearts..
    :( :( The only happy endings on soaps have been when a character is leaving, they are done with the character. ,,,,,,,,, RIP Drakes..

    (( A happy ending is not the same as a good intriguing story..))

    It’s nice, it’s tear-worthy, but the payoff isn’t worth the loss of three great characters.
    Are Robin and Patrick great together? For a lot of fans, yes. But since this is a show, what’s the payoff for the fan if rhe characters are leaving? Yes, if this was the last zhow of GH it’d be a great way to go out. But after all is said and done three characters we have come to love will be gone.

    I adore Jason Thompson. I wish he were staying. But I would have rather they replaced him and kept the family in town. Grow the Scorpio Drakes, not lose them. I would rather, if Kimberly doesn’t want a full schedule, see her once a week or every two weeks…have Emma interact with Spencer, Anna…

    Soaps recast all the time…so does theatre.. James Bond, Spiderman, Batman, Superman…if fans of these iconic figures can adapt soap fans should be able to as well.

    There are many actors that with time could be accepted as Patrick. If GH is still a reality in the future, perhaps JP could reprise the role….

    For now…just sad to lose another piece of G’s heart and soul. Speaking of which…I must have missed an episode…last I saw Robert he was Santa in Paris.

    I feel worse for Anna than anyone. Her scenes with Emma are always some of my favorites. Now Anna has lost Duke & most of her family is leaving town. Happy for them-sad for Anna. I always love when Robert shows up & he & Anna save the day!

    @Melissa.
    Lol, Melissa. I truly enjoy your comments because you speak your mind without insulting your fellow-posters. I admire and respect that.
    I suppose you have not read any of my comments on our ‘beloved’ Sonny. I give him as much as anyone else. I am just like you. I call it as I see it.
    My philosophy on the sexual proclivity (and other things) that is Sonny, is well known on these boards. So, misbehaviors and misdeeds are not only restricted and directed to female characters, but also their male counterparts.
    Later, my friend.

    Glad to see you’ve finally arrived to the party, “CeeCeeGirl!” (Albeit fashionably late…..but that’s quite alright, dahhling!) Although “The Timmster” and I have been keeping things rolling with our rapid-fire repartee, your contributions have just made it all the more merrier! (Isn’t he simply priceless?????Just saying….) At any rate, I love your devotion to “The Bard” and his works….you really should have taught this subject, because your great passion for and immense dedication to the true intent of his words are so admirable….I applaud you!!! Having said that, you’re no slouch yourself when it comes to the art of description: “wrinkled” and “pendulous?”….oh my word, I couldn’t stop laughing, but then again, this entire thread has kept me chuckling for days, and I have wonderful news for you…there is a sequel…YES! (Just click on to “Patrick and Robin Remarry” 1/08/2016. The fun continues!) You see, I responded to Melissa’s most thoughtful above remarks on that thread because she had no direct link near our “conversation,” and she very nicely replied, so….since you also referenced your past comments about Sonny and his alleycat ways—(keeping those feline allusions going, don’t you know?) –I thought you should be apprised of that fact. It turns out she is a relative newcomer to MFSoaps, so she wasn’t aware of our history of dissing “Dimples!” (I filled her in, too….) Do take a gander….she’s such a sweetheart! Anyway, I guess you received my other post from the “Mal” thread….you made mention of certain info contained therein, hence even though it didn’t make it online, it would seem that you read it…nest- ce pas? I certainly hope so, as it had a lot of topical minutiae that I wanted to share with you….oh well, must go for now. Later, amica vera!

    OMG, CeeCeeGirl……that cigarette remark was one of the most hilarious things ever! Thank you for the laugh that won’t end…even if I did first see your post as I was waiting in a grocery checkout line and could barely contain myself in public! Your “Viking Woman” reference also had me in stitches….I was envisioning you in all your Nordic glory….majestic and resplendent in long blonde braids, horned—okay, I know it would really be conical, but I love the visual— helmet, bronzed breast plate and shield and brandishing a spear as you laid down the law to the “suocera!” So, do tell, did you spell it out in “runestones” for her???? (Sorry, mia amica, I couldn’t resist!) As for your daily attire, it sounds most apropos…especially for here at MFSoaps, since I often think of this website as a “perpetual pajama party!” Just saying! Later!

    Welcome to the club, Timmm!….CeeCee and I get into enough trouble, so if you are going to associate with us, that’s the price you’ll have to pay!

    I know what club you two are in and I am a proud member!
