    Well, after yesterday's blockbuster, I suppose a letdown was inevitable, but I didn't expect it to reach such depths! I found myself fast forwarding through the Richard Simmons scenes because they were so bad it made me uncomfortable. It was completely unwatchable.

    ***off topic anti-Richard Simmons rant***

    Okay, I get that Richard is “down with the cause” of the Nurses' Ball and all that, but why should anyone take him seriously about anything? Let's face it, he's nothing but a clown, a caricature whose one and ONLY bit is that he's a self-proclaimed “fitness guru” who is so out of shape, he looks like he'd have a coronary if he ran a city block. That joke was old after the first five minutes of his career thirty years ago, and yet somehow he has managed to make some kind of living off of it ever since. He's like Pee-Wee Herman, only without the wit, the genius, the talent, and a real person behind the act. With Richard Simmons, what you see is all he's got. At this point, in my opinion, he's pathetic, and an embarrassment to himself, and any cause he associates himself with. I'm glad his horrible and ill advised intrusion into this show at this time was short lived.

    ***Rant over. Back on topic***

    Quick hits:

    Lucy is like a cheerleader on acid! Not that that's always a bad thing.

    Epiphany looked like she wanted to snap Lucy in half for cutting in on her chance to dance with Val.

    Sam must really be getting tired of hearing that same old “Don't I know you from somewhere?” line from every guy she meets. Jax and Sonny thought she was a Brenda clone, and the Balkan wanted to leave her blown up body in place of Brenda's when he kidnapped her. McBat thought he and Sam were “connected” somehow, and Clayleb was convinced that she was his reincarnated dead wife. Now this Val character thinks she's soap actress Kelly Monaco from DWTS. Sheesh! Nobody wants Sam to be Sam!

    Somebody find Drake Jr. a razor, STAT! Nobody wants a brain surgeon that can't even shave himself.

    This is Elizabeth at her best, even if she IS still up in everybody else's business.

    Multi-generational redheads, Ellie and Tracy bonding? I certainly wasn't expecting to see that, or for that matter, somebody using a blowtorch for self defense in a room full of chemicals that blew up a year and a half ago!

    Nor was I expecting to see Ellie back on her feet again. Another remarkable GH recovery, and Connie hasn't even gone to trial for injuring her yet.

    Rafe is pathetic! I get his routine now. He plays on women's (or guilt-ridden cops) sympathies with his puppy dog eyes and his “I've got nowhere else to go” act, but Shawn isn't buying any of it. He was giving Rafe the “evil eye,” and sees right through this kid. I'll bet the way Shawn said “Do we understand each other?” made Rafe's man parts retreat so far, his voice probably won't change for another five years.

    Felix called Carly the “Goddess of Angry Love.” Perfect! He does have a way with words. Spinelli's got nothing on Felix in the nickname department.

    Spinelli and AJ in search of the lost Q. I've been hoping to see that. Tracy's out of luck because Luke is occupied with more pressing matters.

    I notice that neither AJ nor Sonny wear ties, and I for one, am in favor of this fashion trend. Ties are uncomfortable, useless, non-functional, accident causing, germ ridden disease carriers (second only to computer keyboards, according to studies done in hospitals), and the sooner they are relegated to history's trash bin of unfortunate men's fashions along with other pointless garments, like codpieces, leisure suits, and Nehru collars, the better. I intend to put in my will that I refuse to be buried with a decorative noose around my neck.

    Still no sign of Sonny or Connie. Gee, I really miss Connie.

    Midas-- Thanks for the refresher! I had forgotten all about that. Agree with Mayzo about Ellie. That could have been saved for later, like 6 mos later. Richard Simmons is too funny. For supposedly being a straight-forward, considerate guy Milo has a bit of the devious in him. But it's also ridiculous to leave your phone just lying around.

    Wait a second! Why doesn't Rafe go and live with his cousin, Lucy? Huh?

    And did Ellie and Spinelli breakup over the child issue?

    Jumps ~ Lucy said that social services won't let her take in Rafe. After the whole vampire thing, I can understand why.

    Scrimmage...I was wondering the same thing about Connie and her trial. Of course, Starr is not there to testify against her for the assault charges on her. That leaves Ellie and Johnny.

    lovesdogs980...thanks! I had forgotten that.

    Jumps-- Lucy also said Rafe couldn't live with them because they didn't reside in PC full time.

    I can't wait for the nurse's ball. I always loved them & I feel this one will be just has great.

    MAKS!!!! So hot!!

    Shawn laying down the law on Rafe. he better watch himself around Molly.

    OH Tracy is about to get the recipe. That just fell into her lap didn't it.

    Liz & patrick's heart to heart was nice. patrick please go shower & shave.

    MILO!!!! OMG he is playing dirty to get the girl. I didn't know he had it in him.

    Hello to all my poster friends.

    I miss Sonny. A whole week without him. Very sad.

    Milo takes relationship advice from a 14 year old?

    Richard Simmons over acted to the point of being ridiculous . It bummed me out more then made me laugh.

    Looking forward to seeing Sam and Mak dance. They are both excellent. I like him way more then his brother.
    Loved Epif' volunteering . She's no dummy.

    Think Shawn was out of line. He all but threatened a kid about who Molly should like. Let them work it out for themselves.

    Can't stand Ellie. She's right, she needn't reproduce.
