Quote StaceyT:Quote loveitloveitloveit: OKay Jake Austin thanks for the compliment. I hope you are talking as bad about Phyllis after today, since she will be talking to Jack about back in the day when they would have sex and not come out of their room for days. She is no better than Sharon in the sex and flirting department, but I bet you all will have an excuse for Phyllis.
You know it lol ~) :-) Truth of the matter they are both morally inadequate :-) Dont know why so many bicker about it (myself included) Sharon and Phyllis are neither role models or saints lol. Its a soap and they both have dirty laundry, like the rest of the residents of Genoa city ;)
I will always prefer Sharon to Phyllis, and Phyllis fans will always prefer Phyllis to Sharon 3)
I think in some way, the fans connect with a character through life experiences of their own in some way and thats why they are so passionate about their favorites. I can relate to Sharon, although I'm nothing like her. I like intimacy versus raw passion. ect :)
Bedroomeyes - by far, this is the best thread of the day, IMO! I'm just mad I had to work and couldn't join in until now. Your post is absolutely perfect - dead on again.
ilovit - you too - kudos. What a beautiful post you wrote differentiating the difference b/t Shick and Phick and why some people are entrenched in their views of each couple. I personally agree with you. I want to see love, deep, abiding love, tenderness, caring, gentleness, common values, as well as passionate sex. I just finished watching the vault scenes b/t S&N for like the dozenth time - I just can't get enough because they embody the abiding love and tenderness that makes them so sweet and have what made them endure for 10 years. JM & SC are so natural together in their scenes it adds so much realism to Sharon and Nick - they behave like real couples who are deeply in love do. I never, ever saw anything close to that with Phick. Raw sexual passion, yes, deep abiding love - the kind of love where a mans shows he cherishes a woman by the tender touches, gentle kisses - never. Phick was about hot sex and, as iloveit correctly pointed out, IMO, that's what a lot of people confuse for love. Lustful passion will fade, but a deep commitment and understanding of one another is what lasting love is made of. That's what Shick had, still have, and will always have.
Bring back the romance, bring back Shick :D
