I have long abandoned any hope of tuning into General Hospital for love in the afternoon, because that's something that this show simply doesn't do (aside from Bob Guza's all-abiding love for Steve Burton).
And judging by their latest attempt at recapturing the, uh, magic of Nikolas and Emily's love story, I'd prefer that they not even try, because if this is what they consider romantic, I...worry.
Nikolas: Well, you're part of Emily. Emily's part of you. I just can't really separate one from the other anymore, you know? And I -- I remember seeing you in her. I just didn't know what I was looking at. You know, that tough look that she had, that swagger that she had when she got angry [Hee! Emily having swagger. As if!--Ed.]
Nikolas: I thought it was all her. But now I understand you were there all along.
Rebecca: Wow, I never thought of it that way.
Nikolas: Yeah. I want to be with you so bad. For who you are and who Emily was.
Sometimes, you can only widen your eyes in horror and back away from the crazy.
Nikolas: You -- you have never looked more beautiful than you do right now.
"You have never looked more beautiful than you do right now, in a dress that looks exactly like the one my dead fiancee wore. Can I call you Emily? That would make me happier than I have ever been before."
...Claudia obsessing over her brother's sex life
...Sonny telling his wife to, and I quote, "shut the hell up"
Claudia: Maybe if you were as possessive of me --
Sonny: Why would I be possessive when I don't trust you, and I don't really like you? So why would I be possessive?
I bet that "Smack My Bitch Up" is their song. So sweet!
