    Alan's Plans

    Tuesday, November 21 2006
    Mallet and Dinah celebrate. Alan has more plans for Lizzie. Beth gives Mel an idea. Jonathan has to prove himself to Lizzie again.


    Lizzie still needs proof of Jonathan's commitment

    Mallet and Dinah have been in bed reconciling for the past few days. She starts to wonder if they're just trying to avoid being a couple in the real world. She starts trying to get dressed, but he keeps dragging her back into bed, reluctant to leave their little world. After pacing the room frantically, she manages to convince him to come out with her.


    Gus and Harley arrive at the hospital to get yet another fertility test done. This time, it's for an embarrassed Gus. He's reluctant to go into a cubicle and do his 'business' with a cup, but Harley cheers him on. While she waits, he calls her on the phone and asks her to come in and help him. She promptly does so, just as an old man walks into the room catching them in the act and faints. The sample doesn't make it into the cup and the nurse sends them home to complete the task.

    Marah walks into Outskirts and starts to talk to Jonathan. It takes him awhile to figure out who she actually is. She cuts to the chase quick: What are they going to do about Reva and Josh? He's reluctant to say or do much of anything about it at this point. She begs him to come to Thanksgiving dinner with her. He already glimpses that she's trying to set up a disaster that will push Rev and Josh back together. 'They say that I'm a bad influence,' he teases her.

    Alan pays a visit to Lizzie at Cross Creek. After his usual vague threats and promises, he hands her a set of photos that were taken of Tammy and Jonathan the night before. She tells him that he should know better than to gossip and continues to insist that Jonathan is devoted to her and the baby. On his way out, Alan reminds her that she should be with her real family for Thanksgiving: That's where her future is. Once she's alone, Lizzie looks through the photos and becomes angry. Jonathan soon returns, finding the photos Alan left spread out on the table. He looks up and sees that Lizzie has packed his bags. He has to get out and she will stay with Reva on her own until he's proven that he can be a good father. He tries to explain himself and tells her that he only kissed Tammy once and things didn't go further. He refuses to move out; this is what he really wants. To prove it, he gets a tattoo on his chest with room for the baby's name at its center. She runs her fingers over it and tries to kiss him but he doesn't reciprocate.

    Alan-Michael is having dinner with Alan who has him there under false pretenses. Alan-Michael says that Alan will have to beg him if he wants any kind of help. Alan does, asking him to come and spend Thanksgiving with the family, a request which causes Alan-Michael to burst into laughter. Alan is serious though; this is about the future of the family. Alan-Michael starts to point out all of the problems the family is having, but Alan is more worried about Lizzie's baby falling in with Reva and her family. He wonders what they would tell Philip when he comes back if they let that happen. Alan-Michael finally agrees to dinner and Alan leaves him alone as Beth crawls out of the woodwork with a proposition for him. In exchange for a donation to her new hospital (where she will be in charge of Rick) she will help keep Ava away from Coop. Alan-Michael shrugs in agreement and leaves as Rick and Mel enter.

    Beth is surprised to find Rick with Mel, acting as his lawyer while they negotiate his contract. Beth wasn't expecting Mel to be playing such an active role and asks them if they're back together. Rick gets a call and reluctantly leaves them together. Beth accuses Mel of being a prude and Mel calls Beth an 'old nympho'. Beth suggests that Mel should have an affair of her own; that would be just revenge. Mel gets tired of dealing with Beth and walks away as Rick returns. He is annoyed by the whole situation. Beth tells him that she gave Mel something to think about. Meanwhile, Mel is on the phone calling Jeffrey.

    Gus and Harley walk into Towers and find Mallet and Dinah at the bar celebrating their reunion. They get a table and Mallet asks the waiter for some paper and a pen. Gus takes some paper and they each write little notes to their dates which they place under their glasses. When the waiter comes to clear the table, he knocks a glass over and the notes get mixed in the kafuffle. They ladies pick up their notes and excuse themselves separately. Gus and Mallet part company to find them. Since the notes have been mixed up, Gus surprises Dinah with a kiss before they, embarrassed, return to the table and Harley manages to veer away fro Mallet's lips just in time. Gus and Harley are uncomfortable and run off, stopping the elevator as it goes down while Dinah and Mallet run out to the terrace to be alone.

    Alan has plans for Alexandra. He wants her to go away to a spa for the holidays. She's highly skeptical of his generosity and wonders what will happen in her absence. He tells her that he needs an excuse to get Lizzie there and her 'failing health' would be one. She's reluctant, so he offers to send her to see Nick instead and she, grudgingly, accepts. However, she warns him that he is only going to succeed in pushing Lizzie away. Nonchalantly, he assures her that she'll be living with them again by Christmas.

    Next on GL:Alan has plans for Lizzie and gets a surprise guest.

    I think that lizzie and jonathan needs to stay to gether for the baby I think they might work it out. I like lizzie and I just wish good things can happen to her its not her fault that she having a baby on the way I thing over all jonathan needs to leave that little shut of a tammy alone.

    I hope Lizzie and Jonathan makes it as a couple. Lizzie needs something good to happen to her and I think Jonathan is the person. Dinah and Mallet is another couple I hope stay together. It's good to have the old Marah back on the show, maybe she can get Reva and Josh to see the light. They need to be back together. Send Tammy and Cassie on a long vacation somewhere.

    If rich family life is anything like the Spalding family life, I'm glad my family is plain old middle class. All the controlling and backstabbing is crazy. Alan and AlanMichael both need to get a life and back up out of other peoples lives. Tammy and Casie need to find someone other than family members to love and sleep with. It's all very sickening. The writers really need to give Alan a new personality like Y&R did Victor. Just a thought. This soap is starting to get very boring.

    Lizzie & Jonathan....what a joke? How could anyone want a man and woman who don't LOVE each other to stay together just for the baby. Their baby will be as disfuctional as the family their trying to keep her from (Spauldings)

    I think lizzie needs to let up on jon, he told her the way it was at the beginning of this situation. Maybe if she lets up he will see her in a differnt way. He can't be getting back with tammy cause she is leaving the show unless they replace her with someone else. I think this is the best soap on tv. A lot of good storys with different people you don't see that on soaps its always about one person or couple and the rest is boring. Not gl it always keeps you wanting more.

    suepoo..I'm with you about Jon and Lizzy, everyone seems so upset that Jon can't let go of Tammy and is anyone forgetting why Jon married her in the first place?? Only to protect the baby (their baby) from weirdo Grandpa Alan. He made his feelings toward Lizzy perfectly clear to her when he decided to marry her and she AGREED! now she won't lay off him about Tammy. If she really loved Jonathan then she would see how much this hurt's him, wanting to be a great father and wanting to still have a relationship with the women he truly loves! (which by the way was not a secret to Lizzy) How could Lizzy do this to Tammy? Tammy has done allot for Lizzy and her baby...I remember the episode where Lizzy said to Tammy..you would give me the shirt off your back wouldn't you? and Tammy replied yes. Now she is doing everything in her power to crap all over Tammy and Jon all for her greedy little self! she's a spalding, what do you expect! Tammy is not my favorite character and at times bugs me but the fact is that Lizzy is and always will be a spoiled brat who only thinks about herself! I feel sorry for her baby! Lizzy is just like her mother, evil and conniving! P.S. why do the wardrobe people put Jon in those ugly baggy rapper pant's all the time? Please put him in something a bit more classy.

    Marah needs to save reva and josh..

    I can not believe that Lizzie in so upset about the pictures of Jon kissing Tammy. Lizzie needs to get over it Lizzie new that Jonathan loves Tammy so much and for Lizzie to keep throughing Jonathan father in his face is sad she shouldn't use that on him,but it just shows that Lizzie still has her old ways in her. Why can't Jonathan still be with Tammy and fight for his baby girl. I believe that Lizzie new what she was doing from the begining. she is trying to force herself on him I don't like Lizzie for Jonathan. It just doesn't fit he had so much passion for Tammy I just don't see the same fire for Lizzie and even if he was to show it. It would be to wierd. He fought so hard for Tammy and himself for him to fall in love with someone else wouldn't be right.
