(Fri)Day's Most Awesome Dialogue
So most of GH last week was a big boring pile of boring boringness, but Friday's episode wasn't as awful as the rest. There were some nice moments between Robin and Patrick, and Robin and Jason, and there was this exchange from Awesome Writer that almost made me forget how much I hate this show. Almost.
In case you missed this amazing conversation, I have provided some visual aids.
Diane: …Now, do you actually have something to discuss with me, or shall I simply bill Sonny double for this and leave you to your own speculation?
Carly: Why do you bill him double?
Diane: I always do with you. Oh, please! There's my hourly fee, and then there's additional compensation for mental duress. I was actually thinking about adding a second bump for anxiety and for emotional distress, but then I thought that would simply make me seem a bit greedy .
Carly: So, Sonny pays you double to handle me when he doesn't want to?
Diane: In my blessedly limited experience, there is only one person who has any success whatsoever in handling  you. And that's Jason. He seems to have limitless reserves  of patience . I, on the other hand, am an attorney, and I provide only legal representation, not emotional guidance. So, if you are in need of my services, please tell me, otherwise I'm late for my karate class.
Carly: You take karate? 
Diane: Ai!  It's very emotionally centering. You really should  try it sometime.
With this conversation, Awesome Writer (with significant assistance from Laura Wright and Carolyn Hennesy, who were fabulous) has removed the taint of the near Diane-Max sex a couple weeks ago. Normally, there would be a link in that previous sentence to the post in which I'd originally discussed that tragic few moments of screentime, but it's absent this time because I just couldn't bring myself to ever finish that post. I started it -- it was called "Grody to the Max," I'm not ashamed to admit -- but I couldn't make it entertaining. It was basically just line after line of me going "WTFWTFWTF" and "noooooooo." So anyhoo, glad they let Awesome Writer out of his shackles, but with what seems to be coming up during sweeps, I suspect his release was only very short-lived. Unlike, say, Steve Burton's commitment to hair-based atrocities, or ABC Daytime's dedication to ruining my afternoons.
