Stop, Or I'll . . . Trip You!
I can't believe I forgot to mention this last week. Hilarious: The great and powerful Sonny being brought down not by one of the 500 bullets that whizzed past his overly-product'd head but instead by falling down the stairs and getting knocked out is one of the more awesome things to happen on GH in recent memory. Sometimes I think there is at least one writer who is totally in on the joke that is these mafia storylines.
Not hilarious: I turned on a soap opera – a damned soap opera, for god's sake – today to see a mobster (and leading man, as all mobsters should be) calmly and remorselessly shoot another mobster at point-blank range in the back without provocation. WHO WANTS TO WATCH THAT ON A SOAP?! Quentin Tarantino is still making movies. Some even spend some time in theaters! Go see those! Does nobody at ABC understand what the hell a soap opera is supposed to be?!
Tracy: Monica, what you and Alan did in bed is not really territory I wish to explore. I’ll ask him anything else.
Monica: No. No, it has to be something that only Alan would know.
Tracy: Monica, with all the men you’ve slept with, I could do an internet search and come up with a complete inventory of your preferences.
Hee! Great line, and Jane Elliot's delivery just kicks all kinds of ass. In fact, all those scenes in the Quartermaine living room today were great. (I mean, if you ignore the obviously maddening fact that a 30-year-veteran, recently unceremoniously canned, is playing a wisecracking ghost in a sweatsuit.) For the fortieth time this month alone, I ask: Why isn't this show better?
Not hilarious: The ensemble poor asskicking Jane Elliot had to wear while delivering her very hilarious lines. I can’t find a screencap, but it’s just as well, because I’m sure the FCC or whoever is regulating the internet these days (Is it still Ted Stevens? Because I really miss his helpful explanations about the series of tubes vs. dump trucks.) would shut us down immediately. Tracy's blouse may have offended me more than the mob execution.
