    To be honest, at the start of the show, I thought that Frodd was freaked out because Epiphany was trying to take his temperature with a rectal thermometer. Imagine my disappointment. I don't know why he's so scared of Epiphany when there's dozens of other people who are REALLY out to get him, but I have to admit I enjoyed it. Now we know Frodd's weakness. Epiphany is his Kryptonite!

    She was also sparkling as the Lamaze coach/drill instructor. I loved the almost invisible smile on her face as she assured – no, practically guaranteed her students that yes, they will soon be feeling indescribable pain that they cannot even begin to imagine now. Leave it to Epiphany to forget the sugar coating, and just tell it like it is, with a twinkle in her eye.

    This is the kind of stuff I wanted to see all through a real surrogate storyline, minus the standard WTD, or switched at birth clichés. I wanted Maxie to actually be carrying Dante and Nulu's baby, and play the whole thing for wacky laughs and light slapstick, ala I Love Lucy, when she was TV's first expectant mother. Like today, it would've been sweet to see Spinelli and Maxie bonding over babies, even if the one she was carrying wasn't theirs. This could've been a beautiful thing, and something worth watching.

    Instead, we get all this ugly business involving lies, deceit, and gory visions of betrayal, symbolizing the inevitable destruction of a beloved character, the unimaginable pain and anger of several others, and the demise of many, many relationships when the whole, sordid truth comes out.

    And from all that turmoil will come an innocent little baby. It's a real shame because it didn't have to be that way. Babies should come into the world surrounded by peace, love, and harmony. There's plenty of time for all of life's other crap to get dumped on them.

    ***off topic***

    Lily hunter - I was raised under 50's style parenting, and I think I turned out okay, although I realize that at times, that is the subject of much debate and speculation on this board. Still, there's a reason why something becomes “traditional.” It's usually because it's been tried and proven to work over generations. My parents raised me much the same way they were raised, but they could afford a more “enlightened” view, only due to the fact that the 50's were far more prosperous times than the 20's of their youth. My Mother was seven years old when the Great Depression hit, and lived in Oklahoma during the Dust Bowl of the Thirties. At the same time, my father was a teenager working in his father's dry cleaning and tailor shop in the steel town of Pittsburgh, where unemployment among the industrial workers reached record levels, devastating the local economy. The amazing story of how those two ever ended up together would be beyond imagination, except for the fact that I am living proof that they did, and I'm very grateful to them for that.

    When I was seven, I had a room to myself with a wall A/C unit, and my older sister had her own room, equipped with a “Princess Phone,” and her own number. Even so, they instilled in me the traditional values of hard work, being honest, and thrifty with a dollar that have served me well ever since.

    I can't say that I see much evidence that those values are being embraced by today's kids, and I'm afraid that in the long run, they will be the worse off for it.

    I think if anyone opens their back door, they'll probably hear SB cackling all the way from TN.

    bayou- I hear him, crackling and breathing a BIG sigh of relief. He dodged the bullet after all. LOL

    Scrimmage………..LOL. If I were to take your advice, they might need a therapist. I think what they really needed was a nap that they missed.

    ZuZu- were you trying to be on the GH site or one of the other soap sites? Maybe, you could log off completely, and just start over. Hope you get it straightened out.

    Please tell me FRODD is faking, and he doesn’t really think, or heaven help us, isn’t Jason Morgan. I would rather have Jason stay at the bottom of the harbor than have this goof ball play him.

    We haven’t seen Franco pick up a brush or a spray paint can since his return. I guess once an artist, always an artist, doesn’t apply with FRODD.

    Scrimmage- I don’t totally disagree with your suggestions. Please know, I didn’t have a burial, but did take the opportunity to tell the twins that when I say we need to pick up, and put toys away, I mean it. I didn’t purposely smash Mr. Parrot, he was collateral damage. LOL.

    hippiethug- you might be right about J for a Jerome, but I like to think that might be too obvious. I was so disappointed in Alex’s lackluster story. I think the writers missed a wonderful opportunity to give us a real romantic story of love lost and found again many years later. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised it was just a quickie in a backseat, no name, nothing but a shameful pregnancy. That’s our boys.

    Scrimmage - No offense intended. I can identify. Yes, you're right, the world will not be better for positive parenting.

    Can it get any stupid-er? Maybe Frankentoddjason can turn out to be Robin, who made her way back with the help of a very realistic rubber mask (I hear those are easy to come by in the Alps). The writing has become so lame, all in the name of keeping Frankentoddjason front and center. How and why does this one actor, who I do like, get to have a whole show wrapped around him?

    Posted by bayoubtr at Tuesday, July 16 2013 06:45 PM

    Boston Terrier-- How does he get a whole show wrapped around himself? FV & RC. How else? Where in any other universe would an actor get front & center on a soap they were never a part of???

    OT - Poodles. Here's a link to origami parrot instructions.

    Hope that helps to redeem you.

    I sure this mess Rc & Fv have made of GH, will one day be the "Don't do this" in soap writing 101. I wonder if they even watch this cr@p.

    Hi Lily.
