    Fanny replied

    What I hope to see at the “DAYTIME EMMY AWARDS” this YEARS, is for GH to receive
    the respect and acknowledgement it so richly deserves.
    I’d like EP Frank V. to take no prisoners and submit as many scenes and episodes possible,
    Roger,Maura,Michelle,Laura,Kathleen……….to name a few. And that’s just for this weeks
    performances!!! Ron C and his writing team, R giving ABC the BEST Nov SWEEPS in
    years. Last time I checked, EXCELLENCE reaped rewards.

    I like the pun…i suffer severe near crippling back pain so i understand how Tony felt…glad he is ok and back on the show…finally Fluke’s storyline!!!

    That was nice of Frank/cast/crew


  3. Timmm says:

    Royalty has returned! As if GH hasnt been good enough! Tony will be the icing on the cake! Please GH/ABC release these t-shirts to the general public for sale!


    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    They should sell the shirts and copies of Carlys necklace and other soap related items…its a good way for networks to make some money off these shows!!!


    Timmm replied

    Exactly. These soaps still get millions of viewers and some of us want to express our love for a semi-lost art! My favorite comments about soaps is when people say “Do you still watch those Things?” as they continue on a bout the Kardashians or Atlanta Housewives! Soaps are TEN times better than that crap!

    Shay replied

    I get your point, jimh, but WHO on earth would want a replica of that totally hideous necklace that Franco gifted Carly???? (And would the secret “Sonny Cam” be included???? Haha…just asking…..)

    Welcome back, Tony. Let’s get this story wrapped up so we can see (real) Luke and Tracy reunite and have some laughter in the Quartermaine mansion with Alice and Ned!


  5. Andy G. says:

    I’d like to suggest a love interest for Fluke: The character must be named “Flora” and I have a particular actress (familiar to the GH audience) in mind to play her . . .


    jimh(leave it to beaver) replied

    Laura(Genie Francis)…i just dont see her and Luke together would be nice if Genie returned but it just didnt work the last time she was on…i dont think TG wants to revisit the storyline…been there, done that…he wants to move away from that and do stuff that challenges him like Fluke’s done…he also hinted about retiring…i wouldve liked to have seen Luke and Laura reunited one last time and involved in a big storyline with the Cassidines before departing PC for good!!!


    Harry replied

    Well, it didn’t work for Luke and Laura because the writing wasn’t there.
    There’s no way that Fluke and Luke should be on the canvas without Luke’s angel.
    And for the life of me, I will never understand how a smart and savvy woman like Traci didn’t notice that that man was not her husband.

  6. Elite Advisors says:

    So great to see how much Tony is loved and respected among his peers…lest we forget he has been through some serious health concerns with his back… and he is not 25 anymore…

    SO happy to see him back!!


  7. Ces says:

    Happy to have Tony back. A “fluke” story without Tony isn’t much of a story. Also, I’d like to see a new love interest for him because Tracy & Luke, well ….. isn’t terribly interesting to me.


  8. Charday says:

    Aww, that was sweet. Now, let’s wrap-up the Fluke storyline!! Great to see TG back.
