You know what's weird--actually, "weird" is too benign a word for it. You know what's downright disturbing about General Hospital? I mean, aside from the fact that, off the top of your head, you just came up with 83 different ways to answer that question. What's downright disturbing is that one of the more better written, better acted couples in Port Charles is comprised of the incredibly irritating Adrienne Barbeau (the character whose name I can't be bothered to remember; I am sure Adrienne Barbeau, as a person, is delightful. I mean, she was on Maude! Spending that much time with Bea Arthur can only lead a person to a good place) and a criminal mastermind.
I'm not saying that they're the next big supercouple or anything (but can you imagine seeing them hugging and happy on the cover of Soap Opera Digest?! What could their couple name be? I'm partial to Balki 'n' Barbi), but Daniel Benzali and Adrienne Barbeau don't seem repulsed by each other, and The Balkan and Adrienne Barbeau seem to genuinely enjoy the other's company, and that is much, MUCH more than we can say for a lot of the romances on this show.
Theo: You are a formidable woman. I was wise to marry you.
Adrienne Barbeau: Don't you forget it.
Theo: I've missed you during this tedious separation.
Adrienne Barbeau: I've missed you, too, but we have to remember we're laying the necessary groundwork.
Theo: Yes, we are. And we'll soon have all the time in the world together, after Brenda Barrett finally pays for killing our son.
Adrienne Barbeau: They would be floored to discover we're married.
Theo: And Alexander?
Adrienne Barbeau: I've never mentioned our son to Brenda. She brings him up occasionally, how violent he was. She has never shown any remorse about his death. It takes a lot of effort to hide my true feelings.
Theo: Well, soon you won't have to. So are you helping with the wedding preparations today?
Adrienne Barbeau: Mmm. I offered to help. And you?
Theo: Paying a visit to that den of incompetence.
Adrienne Barbeau: Theo, there is nothing wrong with you!
Theo: As you know, I have as delicate constitution, which happily gives me an excuse to meet with the matron of honor and get some more details about the wedding.
Adrienne Barbeau: And I take it Robin falls for your lonely curmudgeon routine?
They're kind of sweet, if you ignore the fact that they are blood-thirsty criminals embroiled in a years-long quest for revenge.
