    How About A Pasta Maker Instead?

    Wednesday, February 01 2012
    Dante turns down Sonny's offer, Molly tries to help TJ, and Alexis gets flustered.

    In his office, Sonny offers to make a donation to the pulmonary wing of the hospital in his and Lulu's name as a wedding gift. Dante suggests Sonny get them a pasta maker instead. Dante reminds his father he's a cop so he can't be linked to anything Sonny does. Sonny just wants to do something meaningful for him and his bride. Dante tells him to quit the business then. That way, Dante won't have to keep tabs on him and Sonny can just be his father. Sonny thinks they should put their jobs aside and just be a family. Dante retorts that idea is good in theory, but not so much in reality. Kate shows up and Dante leaves. Kate tells Sonny she's going out of town again to Palm Beach. Sonny looks doubtful, but passionately kisses her. After she leaves, Sonny puts a tail on her.

    Matt catches Elizabeth looking through Jason's file at the hospital. Clearly rattled, Matt offers to listen if she needs to talk about anything. Ewen shows up suggesting another trip to the supply closet for Liz. Matt is disdainful when they explain the therapy Ewen is trying with Liz. Maxie calls Matt to ask him to the office, where Spinelli is ready to help make him jealous. Matt leaves, as Ewen and Liz talk about their painting. Ewen admits he hasn't picked up a brush in weeks because he's becoming obsessed with helping a patient. Liz suggests he take a turn in the supply closet, but Ewen declares the physician can't heal himself. He asks her to go to an art exhibit and she agrees to it. He gives her the information and says, "Hope you can make it." Liz looks confused.

    At Kelly's, Molly tries to talk to TJ about his trouble with reading. Shawn overhears them, but Molly covers for the teen. After Shawn walks away, TJ asks her to keep his secret. She agrees if he'll let her help him read properly. Lulu runs in, as Dante follows. He tells her about Sonny's offer, as TJ stops by their table to flirt with Lulu. They chuckle and Shawn shoos him away. Lulu tells Dante she was about to ask Kate for her job back, but she went all diva on her. Ewen enters and tells Dante he thinks the perp had a pattern of assaulting women before he came to town. Back at the counter, TJ tells Molly if she can talk Shawn into getting him a laptop or tablet, he'll let her help him. She doesn't go for it and gives him a book to read out loud to her. TJ struggles through it and then Molly gets an idea and rushes out. TJ opens her laptop.

    Matt walks arrives at Crimson. Spinelli leaves after he and Maxie pretend like they're having a great time. Maxie asks Matt to sign a release for their photo shoot and then apologizes for her and Spinelli's moment. Matt is fine with it. She asks him to do something later that night, but Matt has research to do. She says she'll just spend the night with Spinelli watching movies in her pajamas. Matt again is fine with that and leaves, as Maxie smirks. A disappointed Spinelli returns to Maxie gushing about how jealous they made Matt.

    Back at the hospital, Matt's patient postpones their meeting over the phone. Matt tells Liz he is eager to meet the patient because he wants to see if his research can help. He then asks Liz to dinner.

    At home, Jason tells Sam about his brain swelling. She asks if he has to have another surgery. Jason replies they don't know yet, so they shouldn't worry. They move on to talking about Sam's pregnancy. Jason tells her he loves her no matter what happens and nothing will change that. Sam gets a call from the hospital. Kelly will meet them tomorrow with the paternity test results.

    Michael visits Edward and Tracy at ELQ. After some talk about Abby, Michael offers to help with a deal he previously worked on. He also gives them a suggestion on stock he thinks they should by. Edward wants him back at the company. Michael will think about it.

    Alexis stops by the precinct and talks with Mac, who is still bothered by Maxie's love life. Alexis says he can't control who people love, but Mac doesn’t understand how Maxie could love either Matt or Spinelli. Alexis reveals she's there on business for Sonny and they launch into a conversation about her working for him again. He asks if it would be a conflict of interest if she went out for a drink with him while representing Sonny. She gets flustered and runs out saying she'll call him.

    Olivia interrupts Johnny and Carly.

    Alexis and Diane get drunk with Coleman.

    Robin has a conversation with Mac.

    Hi everyone Ewen and that closet just makes me laugh.
    I'm glad Matt is not falling for Maxie's teen age games. They do not belong together.
    Sonny the gift you could get Lulu and Dante is a homemaker that could prepare dinners for them for a year

    Sonny would pop a dimple if Kate or anybody had the nerve to have him followed but it's ok if he decides to do it. How about he put a bodyguard on each of his kids instead? How about that? Have THEM followed. Pretend you care what happens to them more than the current love of your life.

    I wish there was a man at my job who looked like Ewan and kept asking me to go into the closet. They would NEVER catch me at my desk.

    I think Mac should give up on Alexis. She only likes freaks. Not boring, freakless cops.

    Ewen walked up and listened in on Mat and Liz talking. THE NERVE.......It must be in the water, this eavesdropping epidemic that is sweeping Port Charles.

    The kiss Sonny gave Kate looked like it had an impact on the actress. She was like whooo......and I don't think that was in the script! That man should give kissing lessons.

    Unicorn: Sonny mentioned to Alexis on yesterdays show that he had his kids guarded.

    ransomha...thanks for the clarification. I know you love Sonny. So please tell me when I'm being unfair to him cause sometimes I only see the crap.

    You and I agree on Lizzie though.

    And over the last few days after reading this board I've noticed that I sometimes "listen" too hard to others conversations. I've made a mental note to STOP THAT! I need to focus on my fantasy land of unicorns with shirtless men like Jax, Johnny, Shawn, Hugh Jackman, Chris Hemsworth and The Rock running around in it.

    Ewen looked so sloppy today walking around with his shirt hanging out of his pants as if he never learned to dress himself.

    Perhaps I am old fashioned, but I cannot stand to see nurses with long hair flopping around. whatever happened to hair being above the collar and neatly tucked under a cap. When Liz keeps flapping her hair around or sweeping it out of her eyes, all I can think of is falling hairs. A hospital should be a lot more hygenic than GH. I feel the same way with food service people. When a waitress serves my food with her hair flopping around I lose my appetite.

    Sly Liz is also irritating me the way she is snooping and eavesdropping both on Matt and Jason/Sam. When she started her whiny "poor little struggling defenseless me" act for Matt's benefit I was ready to throw up.

    I cannot even imagine a town where the local mobster's son was a police detective. Dante should have been sent back to New York as soon as the case he was working on was finished. He may be straight and true, but he is compromised by his father's business.

    Posted by aussie1 at Wednesday, February 01 2012 03:10 PM

    Now defenders, tell me Liz isn't snooping! She really needs to get a life of her own.

    Cynic, that's what I'm talking about. She's very nosy and pathetic then she puts on the "woe is me" act in front of men to make them feel sorry for her. She's a total loser. And, that's my putting it mildly. There is some language I cannot say here but you get my drift.

    A pasta maker for Dante & Shrulu or a hospital wing. What to choose, what to choose? Hmmmmm.....

    Loved my Morgan family. It's a pity they don't show more of them. They'll draw this out a bit more and we'll find out the results on Monday I'm guessing.

    Wow Sonny. Kate is barely your girlfriend and you are having her followed? WTH! Kate dump the control freak, its really none of his business where you are going. He's a self-serving jerk jmo.

    I hope Cassandra has got an ok past. She finds out she is extremely rich and takes Ethan on a grand adventure. I love happy people and happy stories. I also don't find them boring but cute and adorable.

    For yesterday show, Shawn you had your chance with Carly. You made it clear you don't want a relationship so she moved on, quit lookng after her so longingly. Alexis is single and definately needs some good loving. Go for it. Molly would be thrilled!

    TJ is playing the sullen spoiled self indulged teenager perfectly. I know, have one at home. Kudos to the actor.

    Jason's swelling brain is probable going to explode when he sees the little monkey growing in Sam's belly.

    Johnny/Anthony - that's messed up. I hope he finds something good on Sonny that will destroy his almighty ego and then just "don't blaim me I'm just the messenger".

    Liz - needs therapy on how to mind her own damn business. There is one thing for a friend to tell you what's wrong another to snoop like that. Just another ex she just can't quite let go of. Nothing new.

    That's it. Have a good night.

    Happy Wednesday Everyone,

    Well, Maxi wanted to see Matt jealous, too bad he’s only jealous of Liz and Ewen. When Ewen first mentioned his “obsession” with his patient, the hook was baited. Then Ewen mentioned the art show, got Liz all excited and ready to accept the invitation he never extended (See you there) she seems hooked. Now Matt will be climbing the walls and bashing Ewen every chance he gets. By the way, just weighing in the on the ethics of Liz reading Jason’s file: I’m just glad Ewen is distracting her right now.

    I’m really hoping that the new writers are going to scrap the Maxi chasing after Matt nonsense. I guess from what I’ve read we’re stuck with the Faux Maxi now, so I’m hoping the character I loved isn’t gone as well as KS.

    I have to say that both Dante and Sonny should compromise and both give up their present occupations. Dante’s no better at police work than Sonny is at running his organization. I sincerely hope that Kate isn’t going off to meet Jax somewhere because I have a feeling that Sonny plans to follow her on this trip. I’m not a great fan of Kate and Sonny, but I really don’t want to watch Crazy Angry Hair on Fire Sonny again so soon. Besides, who’s around to get him back on track this time…not Carly, not Dante, and Jason’s brain is already swelling. He doesn’t need the aggravation.

    I’m glad to see that Michael isn’t running around all over town with his gun anymore. Who knew that he was financial savant passing on stock tips to Edward and analyzing divisional performance?

    Shawn’s time shouldn’t be wasted trying to mentor TJ. Instead I would like to see him distracting Alexis from her hot flashes, shirtless of course. Clearly poor Mac just doesn’t have the appeal he once had. He needs to find a bad girl, well semi-bad girl to remind him of the guy he used to be.

    Sorry but Liz was out off line looking at Jason's file like that. If as she says they are friends and will always have a connection why not ask Jason instead of snooping in his chart. Her fans can defend her all they want, but I think most of us are calling it like we see it. She's butting her nose where it doesn't belong and being very unprofessional about it. Glad she's not my friend.


    Lily, great weather we're having!

    Poodles, I've always like the name Elizabeth along with Alexandria and my personal favorite Jyllian.

    Hello and good night All!
