"When I first took over for David Lewis in 1993, the elevator doors opened, I pushed Lila out into the hotel lobby in her wheelchair and the voice-over said, 'The role of Edward Quartermaine will now be played by John Ingle.'  They did the same thing with Jed Allan, but they didn't with me this time --  I just walked into the room.  I thought to myself, 'Well, I guess they think this is where I belong.'"

John Ingle on his first day back as Edward Quartermaine on GH [If they thought that, I concur]

"The thing that got me almost worse than [Lila's] funeral itself was when Jason came into the Quartermaine den after hearing that Lila had died.  He walked over to Edward, Edward put his hand up on Jason's face and he talked about Jason's eyes being like Lila's.  And I thought, 'Goddammit, those are my lines!'  Then's when I had to stop watching."

"As straight as I am, damn, that Cameron Mathison is good looking!"

"I'm married, so I have to 'act' like I'm happy."

Michael Saucedo (ex-Juan, GH and husband to Rebecca Herbst, Elizabeth, GH) when asked by a fan what he's been doing in regard to his acting career

Ryan Lavery is the biggest asshole ever. What gall this guy has to tell a man who's grieving for his wife who is in a coma that he's in love with her and wishes he could take him away from her? Especially since Zach is fighting for Ryan's child. He's such a selfish, self-centered, self-righteous ass. I can't even believe Megan McTavish thinks we buy that Ryan is all of the sudden in love with Kendall again after the way he treated he over the past two years and declared Greenlee the love of his life.

Ryan saying he loves everything about Kendall. Since when? He has always hated everything about her and wanted to change her.  But I guess since they had Zach say the same thing to Kendall on more than one occasion, Ryan has to get his in.

The constant propping of this character is ridiculous. Did you see the scene where Ryan calls Opal to check on Miranda? Yeah we get it AMC, Ryan loves old people and children and all mankind.

So I guess we're going to get more Ryan propping by Ryan not telling Kendall how he feels and walking away the wounded hero who gives up the girl for her own happiness. I call bullshit.

An AMC Cast Member

A GH spokesperson to ABC Soaps In Depth, July 18

[Another smart assed remark from Katrina:  Then I wonder who Genie Francis will plan when she comes back.  Hmmmm.]

"Men are allowed to care about their hair too.  If I had my way, [Alcazar] would have long hair and a beard, but they don't want that.  They want him clean-shaven with short hair."

Ted King

"Standing on a post in the middle of Bryant Park was the most self-centered thing I've ever seen.  Everyone was like, 'But he's been up there for so long; he's not eating, drinking or falling asleep.'  If you put me on a post that high in a park and I had all these people watching me, forty hours would go by like that anyway.  He just stood there, but he had all these watchers and got to look down like he was the emperor or something."

John-Paul Lavoisier (Rex, OLTL) on why he was unimpressed with street magician, David Blaine

"The next time I leave, it'll be in a nice, wooden box.  I'll stay here as long as they want me -- that doesn't make me a tough negotiator -- but I'm at a point in my life where I don't see the win in pretending that I don't want to do something that, in actuality, I love."

Robin Strasser on continuing her role as Dorian on OLTL

"The writers have written well and have so far honored the history of these two returned favorites.  A new viewer would be able to feel the connection and an old viewer could only sit back and let the sentiment wash over them."

Dianna ("Dianna's Dimensions") on GH's Anna and Robert 

"JR’s birthday gift is a little stuffed Lumiere.  You know, Beauty and the Beast would have been a very short movie if Lumiere had arranged for a bunch of cinder blocks to fall on Belle’s head when she entered the castle.  Frickin trespassers."

Emeraldax ("A Toast to the Soaps") on AMC

"There are just two weeks until I head out to Studio City, CA for the annual General Hospital Fan Club Luncheon. Kathy and I will again be sleeping together…some things are just too good to pass up!"   

Carolyn ("Carolyn's World")

Jamie Pressly should win.  Period.  While I love Jason Lee, Joy steals every scene she’s in.  I love Joy.  Plus, she got to kick Juliette Lewis’ ass and there’s nothing I enjoy more than that."

Sherry on the Prime Time Emmy Award nominations

"Why would someone (other than me, or our own Kate Brown, for that matter) go and attack Dr. Delicious in his cabin?"

The Media Ho about Dr David Hayward (AMC)

June 30, 2006

"I'll just have to do this myself... like everything else." 

David Hayward

“Once again, McTavish has the entire show revolving around issues of conception, birth and babies, both missing and accounted for.  If this isn’t a subject that enthralls you, there’s no reason to tune in to AMC.” 

Mimi Torchin, SOW, June 27

“If there’s a threat to Kendall and Zach’s Marriage, I don’t think it’s coming from Ryan.” SOD June 27

Katrina and Dianna (EOS) on AOL Instant Messenger

"I am not truly saddened by this turn of events ... in fact I am quite relieved. I have gained much and will now move on. I am saddened however by the lack of respect and humanity expressed by those in control of the show. Instead of being open and honest with me they were conniving and malicious. They actually had me come in to work Thursday, for four hours ... then called me up to tell me they were releasing me! I do not stand for such treatment and this is one reason I am happy that I am no longer in league with people who can't give me respect. They would rather hide than be confronted with the actions they take. Know this everyone, if you can't deal with the consequences of your actions ... seriously rethink your action ... because you may get far in this world ... but this world is not the world that matters.

"That said, I will leave God to judge those who have wronged me. And I do forgive them, in hopes that someday they will understand what they have done."

New Superman, Brandon Routh in 2002, invoking the wrath of God on the powers that be at OLTL for firing him from the role of Seth Anderson.

"Quite simply, a character should not be recast if the only thing that makes the character interesting is the actor who portrays them."

Emeraldax in "Nights At The Round Table"

"Girls gone wild part 3 was a wash for me.  I done and I’m tired of these girls grouping together and drinking Tequila.  The only plus to these scenes is that we get to see Coleman."

Dianna in "Dianna's Dimensions"

"...if the bickering at Fusion doesn’t stop soon, I am going to 'accidentally' drop construction supplies on everyone there."


"This week’s “Best Use of a Hand Prop” award goes to JR Chandler." 

Kate Brown in this week's "AMC Spoiler Commentary"

"There’s really no place to go to for Bullshit Rehab.  You mainly just have to stop watching GH.  Yes, you have to go Cold Bullshit and just stop watching the show completely.  It’s the only way, so that’s what I did.  I’ve even stopped taping it and THAT is a huge step for me in living Bullshit-Free."

JenJen in "Channel Surfin"

"A friend of mine thinks that sleeping with Manny would never be dull; after all, she could just read him if she got bored."

The Media Ho

“I don’t want to have sex with you to get back at Robin, I just want to have sex with you”

Carly to Patrick, GH

Thorsten Kaye (Zach, AMC) on some of the story "potholes" on AMC (SOW).

"Ric's being cruel to be kind.  For years, Sonny has gone through this and never gotten help.  Ric knows Sonny as to hit bottom before he seeks help.  Everyone will think Ric has ulterior motives, but this is the only way to save his brother and Ric wants to be the safety net that Sonny falls into when he finally does crash."

Sage Bourland's presentation of a GH spoilers from last week's Sage's News and Gossip (EOS)

Kate Roach Brown, "A Cynic Soaps Up" (EOS)

Kathy Hardeman from "On the Soap Box" about the "Sam looking out the window while Ric leers" scene (EOS)

May 26, 2006

"The daytime medium becomes more and more youth oriented.  I think it was Sir Laurence Olivier who said that the great tragedy of acting is that by the time an actor is old enough to understand the part of Romeo, you're too old to play him.  I've certainly found that to be true."

Anthony Geary upon winning the Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Lead Actor

Finola Hughes regarding her brief return to GH.

"I think that of the crew, perhaps almost 50 percent were the same people I worked with when I was on the show the first time around [1982-85]. I was shocked and thrilled and ecstatically happy because these people were so lovely to me, and continued to be lovely to me. To see those wonderful, warm, welcoming faces was an absolute joy. They work so hard. I would love to see them get the rewards that they deserve. I was so thrilled when GH won the Emmy for Best Show. They worked very hard for it."

"I felt connected to someone else for the first time in my life.  Deeply connected. Robert felt like roots to me.  Like home, and I would have to say that no other man has ever really affected me quite the same way - I would have to say that.  But you know I take great pride in my independence, and Robert is the only man I've ever allowed to rescue me.  He's the only man I ever needed."

GH - Anna to Robin about her feelings for Robert

* * *

"Soaps go wrong when they start focusing on the couple only, and every little move *they* make, instead of focusing on the relationship and how it touches everyone around it.  Giving one or both of the super couple Teflon armor and enough ammo to take out everyone else in town means you’re setting your viewers up for disappointment.  Viewers expect change, cause and effect.  There’s the couple, on a little pedestal, with some little people in the background.  Things get shaken up on occasion but look away and then look back and things will have fallen back to basically the same place they were – and there’s your pretty couple still standing in the middle of it all wearing the exact same expression on their face and all the little people are still behind them somewhere, seemingly unchanged as well.  That’s not drama, that’s a snow globe."

"Robert, Robin, Mac and the Jones girls sitting together at Kelly's brought a smile to my face and a good feeling that I haven't had for a long time. Luke getting a head massage from Big Alice, Robert getting a head massage from Big Alice -priceless! Ric seems to be growing a mustache and goatee and looks so handsome. Anna is coming back for the summer! And best of all - no Emily and Sonny yesterday. All you have to do is ffwd Soily and the rest is really good now."

Poster "Linda" on a recent message board

May 15, 2006

Ok, I want to SCREAM at the TV and in my need to rant and having no GH friends of my own, you get to hear my complaint.  Alexis has NO legal right to Sam in any form or fashion.  Once Sam was adopted, all legal rights were severed.  There isn’t even a legal document in existence in this particular case that even says Alexis is her mother.  Just saying “I’m her mother” won’t work in a court of law.  I must admit, I am a child of adoption in contact with my biological mother and so it is a little personal for me but still, I think they are abusing this relationship a bit too far even for GH land.  A good story could have been for Alexis to rant and rave over how she has no legal right to help Sam even though she is her mother.  Just a hint of research into adoption law could have done a lot for the writers in this case. 

Thank you for letting me vent! 

Always your fan,
