My Essential Person Is Hard Liquor Because Of These Two
Okay, writers. I know you think that, because I watch your show, I am a simpleton who needs things explained to me often, slowly, and with monosyllabic words, but it's not true! I can watch a scene and understand what is going on, without the characters verbalizing it for me. You're freaking General Hospital. I don't need Cliff's Notes to make it through an episode.
Like, I understand that Maxie and Spinelli like each other and have a deep connection. You know how I know this? Because all of their scenes in the history of ever have consisted of them saying those exact words, quite practically verbatim.
Matt: Oh, come on, why not? Really, I mean, you just don't like doctors, or you prefer geeks that hang on your every word? [Zing! --Ed.]
Maxie: I prefer Spinelli over any other guy, especially you.
Matt: Yeah? Ok, enlighten me. What's -- what's the guy's appeal?
Maxie: Well, he's brilliant and sweet and kind, and I happen to love him.
I GET IT, GH. I GET IT. POINT MADE. They are meant to be. They love each other. They like each other just the way they are. They are each other's lobsters. They are each other's essential person. They will never let go. They make each other want to be a betterperson. They complete each other. They are too old for this shit.
Oh, wait, that last one is me. And by "too old", I mean "too smart, too impatient and too likely to take hostages if the show keeps this up".
