First of all, I love soaps. The fact that the standard conventions will just never die gets funnier and funnier as years go by. Today, in standard soap fashion, Gigi and Rex were speaking too loudly in a public area about the babydaddy issue with Natalie and almost got busted by Jessica. When they managed to escape unscathed, they had a discussion three feet away from the original conversation about how with Marty in Crazytown, the two of them are the only ones who know the truth, and they need to be careful about what they say and who they say it around -- at which point normal people would end the conversation, considering both of the participants know damn well what they're talking about. But not in soap conversation. "The only people that know. That Natalie's baby. Is Brody's. And not John's. Are you and me." Which Rex responded to with a facial expression that looked like he might've just tasted a little vomit.
Then Cutter showed up and gave Aubrey a hard time about being cutesy with the mark (Joey), and I was wondering why this guy was acting like they'd never done this before. To which Aubrey immediately responded, "Why are you acting like we've never done this before?" Oh, you soapy tropey people, how I love you!
Oh and HOLY CRAP VIMAL'S WIFE IS HOT. I mean, the dude's adorable in a nervous, nerdy kind of way, but Shenaz Treasurywala is an absolutely drop-dead gorgeous actress (with Buchanan twin hair, I might add).
This woman married a man who "forgot" which twin's paternity test he was supposed to switch, and fixed that predicament by flipping a coin. I rather love that she's all Lady MacBethian so far.
