    Did Alexis say she got blitzed on Tom Collins? When I was in high school that was like drinking lemonade. She sure graduated to being able to knock 'em back at the Floating Rib.

    Boston Terrier wrote: “Sonny dropped Liv like a prom gown.”

    What a colorful expression! I'd never heard THAT one before. It's an interesting way to put it, that's for sure. It sounds like somebody had more fun on their prom night than I had on mine.

    ANYTHING would've been more romantic than Alexis' sad story about Sam's conception. I will say one good thing about it; it's very realistic. I mean, that story certainly didn't require a lot of imagination to write. Take out the stuff about the Cassadines, and it's an old, familiar tale.

    Still, you'd think they'd have written it just a little differently, if for no other reason than to paint Sam's father in a more positive light. Almost anything would've been better than a guy who picks up a drunk, 16 year old schoolgirl in a bar, knocks her up in the back seat of his car, and then drops her off like an order from the Noodle Buddha. He could've at least rescued her from some drunk who was hitting on her, or they could've just met in a park on the last day of Spring Break and hit it off, spending one magical day and night together, but he was a soldier, shipping out the next day, or a student returning to school on the west coast. Instead, he comes across as some local wannabe hoodlum (who by the way, did NOT attend the local prep school, which is why Alexis has no way to look him up), who is presumably older than Alexis, who took advantage of an underage girl by getting her drunk, having no name sex with her, and then disappearing into the night, never bothering to leave his name. It certainly explains a lot about Alexis' taste in men. Even though Alexis Davidovitch presumably consented to having sex with this guy, technically Sam is the product of statutory rape. In light of that, I'd say that “J” stands for “Jerk!”

    Speaking of names, I thought “Alexis” grew up as Natasha. Even Luke and Helena know that, and so does Nikolas. She didn't become “Alexis Davis” until she got to law school.

    I loved Happy Danny's running commentary on Alexis' story.

    I figure if Sam is 35 (Kelly is 37) then Alexis is 51 (NLG is 55), and that would mean this one night stand happened around 1978. I doubt if Sam's father even remembers the night in question. Why should he? It hadn't even occurred to me that he might have a family of his own now who could also be potential donors for Danny. That makes it all the more imperative to find him, but it will be a moot point if Frodd turns out to be a perfect match.

    I thought Spin looked the part, pretending to be an assistant to an art buyer, but he's still the Second. Worst. Private Eye. EVER! He gets caught every time he breaks in somewhere, he gets busted every time he goes undercover like today, using an alias that even Luke would be ashamed of, and he doesn't know how to ask leading questions, and instead ends up giving out more information than he's getting. Now Ava knows someone is looking into her connections with Slimas and Frodd. Way to go, Millhouse.

    So Ava OWNS the gallery. Well that explains her lifestyle, if not her little sideline as an assassin. What'll you bet that we'll never see Ava with a sniper rifle in her hands again for as long as she's on the show?

    If Oblivia is so insistent that “Connie never has to know,” then why is she spilling her guts about her feelings for Sonny to Connie's ASSISTANT? Women! Of course, men are no better, and for proof I give you Sonny as Exhibit A. He changes gears faster than a Formula One driver. One minute he swears he's over Connie, and the next, he's ALL OVER Connie. He doesn't care, just as long as he gets laid tonight. He'll figure it all out in the morning, that is if Connie is still Connie, and she hasn't killed him in his sleep.

    Lovesdogs980 wrote: “I wonder if Ava told Silas she was pregnant with his child and then that she had miscarried.”

    I think that's almost exactly what happened, except that I believe they broke up because Ava told Silas she had had an abortion without his consent, when the truth was, she had somehow secretly given birth to his daughter, Kinky. It's ridiculous, of course, but it would explain why he hates her, and if it's the only way to avoid incest on this show, I'll take it.

    Really not liking Connie. I don't want her with Sonny anymore.
    J = Jerome, but who? Hard to believe Alexis had a one night stand without getting the guys name. Again with the interruption with Maxie - this whole thing is getting lame.

    bayou - I think it's the gin that sneaks up on you. Suffice it to say, after my first year at college, I can't even stand the smell of gin. LOL

    Well if we're going the Ouija board route, I think there are a host of other questions that sucker can be answering for us?

    Will Michael and Kiki's first child call them Mom & Dad or Cousin Mom and Cousin Dad?
    Is Sonny the smartest Mob Boss EVER?
    Will Olivia die a natural death or be shot through the left eye standing beside Sonny?
    Will Dante ever be smart?
    Will Dante die a natural death or be shot through the right eye standing beside Sonny?

    So many questions......

    Scrimmage, I believe Millhouse is Spinelli's actual middle name~~Damien Millhouse Spinelli.

    OT:

    Lily-- I also swore off of gin after a friend tried to convert me to gin & tonic. Like you, I can't even stand the smell of it anymore.

    Just wondering if the little gal in the gallery was Spinelli's real-life wife ? Saw a pic of her when he got married and she looks familiar...
    *(From - Enjoy your time in Del Mar, I so miss my hometown of San Diego everyday !:-)

    Scrimmage - I loved your PC black hole real estate comment. I never heard that Kat/Con sold the estate house next to Sonny's house.
