    Scrimmage....I believe that the reason most people are not being as hard on Maxie as they are on B!tch & Ellie is because Maxie is not using her baby to try to trap the daddy (she knows that he is in a relationship & is not trying to jeapordize that relationship by forcing this baby on Spin) She also knows how much that Dante & Lulu want a baby & they did look into adoption before she feels that she will give her & Spin's baby a happy home with 2 loving parents there for the baby full time(well it might not be that way now since Nulu has forgotten she wants a baby & all). B!tch's situation is that she got pregnant on purpose & is USING the baby to work a number on Patrick...Ellie's snooping is just wrong...let me find out that some nosey lab tech hacked my medical files & she will be fired with a kicked aZZ!!! I'm not saying that Maxie is right but I do believe that her heart is in the right place...she wants her BFF to be a happy mother & believes that this is the only way since I don't think that Dante & Nulu would try again if this went wrong...Plus I still kinda think it is still a Lante baby...if not B!tch's is...

    thundering herd, AMC and OLTL boards have never been taken down as people still love to talk about the show. I would love to have you go over to those boards to recap the show as I am unable to view it. In Canada they have put it on FX Canada but only those that have Shaw or Rogers can watch and I'm on Bells Express. Thank you my friend.♥

    Maxie has had so many chances to come clean. Now she is scared her secret will come out. What does she think everything is just fine? She is making it worse on herself by lying. someone on the board thinks she is a victim..I thought huh..Sorry can not side with her and also think Connie should have said this is your last chance..your late one more time and don't bother to show up for work. Maxie is just plain selfish!
    Yes Ellie is snooping into what is not her business but someone has to find ot what is going on.

    As far as I’m concerned, Maxie could be carrying the spawn of Satan and intends to turn the baby over to Lulu and Dante, is beside the point. EVERYONE is aware of what Maxie is doing and I doubt that anyone is condoning it or cheering her on. Do I think that Maxie is a victim in this debacle, NOT AT ALL. Do I think that Maxie is selfish and is only covering her arse? MOST DEFINITELY. Is she doing Dante, Lulu and Spinelli a great disservice, CERTAINLY. Is this any of Ellie Trout darn business? HELL NO.
    Needless to say that I’m absolutely sure that Maxie will get what’s coming to her for her deception and I’m also sure that when Maxie began this scheme, she was harshly criticized for it; however, what Maxie has done and continues to do does not negate what Ellie has done.
    Trout’s unnecessary and dogged pursuit of a private matter is what I’m addressing. Her justifications for such a gross invasion of privacy does not ring true. Her claims of being only concerned about Dante and Lulu’s baby is an absolute lie IMO and while it may not be blatantly evident, I strongly believe that she’s using her so-called ‘concern’ Dante and Lulu as an excuse to abuse the system in order to get any dirty information she can on Maxie. And if she is really troubled about the baby like she’s claiming, there are far easier and by the book ways of helping. Ellie is putting the hospital in a position where they could be liable and if she is doing this out of mere CURIOSITY, then that makes it even worse since she’s breaking laws and lying to her boyfriend because she’s simply a nosy busy body who loves to overstep.

    From already knows that the Cards picked up Honey Badger.



    Do you have access to Hulu, Hulu Plus or I Tunes? You can watch AMC and OLTL on these sites.

    Southgagirl – What you've written is not only an explanation why you and others don't criticize Maxie, but it's also a pretty good summary of how Maxie rationalizes and justifies her own behavior. However, it's JUST a rationalization, or rather an excuse to allow her to avoid both facing the responsibilities of motherhood, and telling Lulu and Dante the truth about what happened to their baby.

    The reason why Maxie isn't using the baby to trap Spinelli is because she doesn't WANT the baby, so naturally, she doesn't want Spinelli to know about it either. The fact that she thinks it's okay to secretly replace the baby that Lulu and Dante wanted with her own unwanted child is absolutely horrific! Yes, they may have considered adoption, but in the end they decided they didn't want just any baby, they wanted their own biological child, and they have made a considerable investment, both emotionally and financially to make that happen. Maxie is taking advantage of her best friends' desperate desire to have a family to dump her own unwanted child on them. Maxie has no right to unilaterally make a decision like that for them, especially without Spinelli having a say in the fate of his own child, but for her it's the easiest way to solve her two biggest problems – the loss of Lulu and Dante's baby, and the fact that she's pregnant with one that she doesn't want. If the four of them sat down and made those arrangements it would be different, but she didn't give them the chance.

    I am absolutely amazed that so many posters are saying that “Ellie's snooping is just wrong” (which it is) while at the same time they are willing to buy into Maxie's twisted logic and say that “her heart is is the right place” for lying to everyone, and selfishly planning to give her own child away for someone else to raise so she won't have to. In my opinion, that is giving her far more credit than she deserves, while completely ignoring the seriousness of what she's planning to do, which makes Ellie's breach of ethics seem trivial by comparison. Isn't Ellie's heart in the right place too?

    Enad19 - Ellie's snooping into private patient files puts GH at no more risk of a lawsuit than Britt's conspiracy with Maxie. Both are liability nightmares for Monica, but I think Britt's offense – as a doctor – is far more serious.

    As far as Ellie's so-called “lies” about her concerns for the baby and her “other motives,” that's just pure speculation. As far as I can tell, there has been no indication of anything along those lines on the show.

    Scrimmage, admittedly, it's only speculation and my opinion; however, like I also mentioned, there are far easier and BETTER ways that Ellie could truly help Dante and Lulu, which she's NEVER once considered, thus providing me with the firm belief that her justifications are not her true reasons for her inexcusable snooping . Now let's see what she does when her curiosity pays off. Perhaps, you are right and she is simply concerned, but I wonder How will she "help" Dante and Lulu's "poor fetus" when she's confronted with the truth.

    *************OFF TOPIC KENTUCKY DERBY*****************

    So after the huge discussion of the point system for the KD,
    it looks like the points are not going to matter much after the defection of Baffert's 2 horses and Pletcher's Winning Cause. It may be possible that there won't be 20 starters in the KD this year. What do you think?
