General Hospital: Perkie's Observations



Carly finds Todd in Kate’s old office and is surprised that he’s moving in. She wonders about Kate’s feelings on the deal.  Todd says Kate has other worries now.  Carly gives him papers to sign and says she would have left them with his assistant. Todd says he sent Sam home. Carly wonders why he gave Sam a job, since she’s already a PI with her own firm.  Todd claims Sam wanted a fresh start.  Carly says Johnny wants the same thing by helping Starr. 

Todd doesn’t want Carly comparing him to Johnny.  Carly says Johnny’s trying to help Starr, but Todd says she isn’t helpless. Carly asks why he’s giving Sam a job, but Todd is vehement that he’s not like Johnny.  Carly wonders what he has against Johnny, because he’s trying to change his life. Todd yells that people don’t change and that Johnny has secrets, because everyone does. 

Kristina says Kate’s alter caused the accident.  Johnny’s surprised that Kate came forward.  Trey wants a reaction from Starr. Starr admits she already knew and isn’t’ interested in performing for Trey’s cameras. Trey is sure Kate will get jail time.   While they argue, Johnny’s happy to see Kristina back in town. He tells her about his new project and wonders what the deal is with the cameras, which she explains.  Johnny feels Trey is exploiting her and what Sonny did to get her into Yale was no different than other parents.  He asks about Alexis, but Kris says she’s the worst. 

Trey confronts Johnny about his feelings for Kate hurting Anthony. However, Johnny is on Kate’s side.  Johnny agrees to an interview and said he was raised in the business, but he’s choosing to walk away and start a new venture.  Trey’s not interested in anything that isn’t juicy and says there is no way out of that life. 

Kate says she remembers something with Johnny, but isn’t sure what.  The judge arrives and wonders if the DA is wasting the court’s time again. Mr. Chan says Kate admitted her guilt.  Alexis claims the person that caused the accident doesn’t exist and Kate needs to be released. 

Sam’s hanging out at Jake’s.  John’s sitting in a plane on his way to New Orleans, when Sam calls him to talk, because she needs a shoulder.  He admits he thinks about that night and wonders if he missed something and wishes he could help her.  She offers him a safe flight and he tells her to take care.  Jason shows up on the flight and hears John’s goodbye to Sam.  Liz shows up at Jake’s and hears Sam’s goodbye to John.

John tells Jason that Sam is okay, that she just needed to talk. He wonders at the coincidence that they’re both on their way to New Orleans and asks if Sonny sent Jason after Joe Junior.  Jason says Teresa isn’t the only person Junior hurt, but won’t say who.  John says Jason can’t render his version of justice, but Jason says John shouldn’t care how justice is served. 

Sam points out that Liz overheard. She wonders if she’ll run and tell Jason that Sam was talking to John.  Liz says Jason isn’t in town. Sam wonders where he went and why he would tell Liz.  Liz says she was there when he got the call. She tells Sam not to keep lashing out at Jason that he wants to help and he’s hanging on by a thread.  Sam snarks that Liz was there. Liz says Jason came to her.  Sam says she’s surprised that Liz is making her move so soon. 

Liz calls Sam on the hypocrisy of her talking to John, but Jason not being allowed to talk to her.  She claims she made an effort to respect Jasam’s relationship, but Sam says Liz was busy chasing Lucky during that time.  Liz points out that Lucky has been gone awhile now. Sam admits Liz has been patient, but says now is her chance.  Sam asks if Liz stopped loving Jason and Liz asks her the same. 

Sam wonders if Liz is asking for permission to go after Jason. Liz tells Sam that Jason will do anything to make her happy even if that means walking away. If Sam keeps pushing him, he’ll be gone for good and she’ll only have herself to blame. 

Ewen testifies that Kate’s alter caused the accident and Kate is not responsible.  Alexis asks that the case be dropped as the one in Pennsylvania was and for Kate to resume treatment with Ewen.  The judge says he’s not dismissing the charges and asks about the victims. Starr arrives and asks to be heard.  Starr says she once wanted vengeance, but she’s seen DID first hand and knows Cole wouldn’t want Kate punished.  She asks that Kate be allowed to get the help she needs.  The judge grants a recess to decide. 

Sonny tells Ewen that Kate remembered something, but all she remembers is that she spoke with Johnny after the accident . She doesn’t know where or about what.  The judge returns and says the DA can’t prove anything and the charges are dismissed.  Sonny and Kate thank Alexis, who says Starr was the deciding factor. 

When Starr returns to the club. Trey wants to film her again. Kristina gets upset since she’s the mob princess.  Michael commends Starr for doing what she did and offers to drive her home.  Kristina is happy to finally be alone with Trey. 

Jason asks how Sam is, and John says she’s having a hard time. He admits this is the first time they’ve spoken since he left.  John says he’s going to get to Junior first and bring him back to stand charges.  Jason says not if he gets to Junior first.  Police arrive and tell Jason he has a problem.

Sassy...I was watching during that time that's how I can definitively say that's what the tombstone said. Please link a clip where Sonny or Sam called their baby Lila...or anyone else for that matter.

You are entitled to your opinion...that's what this DC is all about and I'm glad that you feel so passionately about a couple that it keeps you tuning in to GH. Rock on.

Soapfan616 I actually am not a big fan of the whole cat fight of the week type of story though at times they do serve their purpose. I would much prefer they focus on sam as heroine and most of my favorite moments, much like with anna, involve her saving the day at the metro court, throwing down with the TMK, taking down the drug ring etc. etc. I would also say that even though i view sam as one of the stronger gh characters, I think you are correct in saying that all of the female characters have been written offensively over the years though some more than others.

Unfortunately I can write all about Jason and the only part of my post that gets a response is the liz part, so thus the debate.

Raven - Im not sure how much of your post is directed at me, so forgive me if this was more of a general comment, but Ive NEVER been a fan of magazine polls as a barometer of popularity no matter who wins. Ive said that any number of times on this board because in the end those polls only really reflect the passion of a fan base and not the depth and breadth of said fan base because fans can vote multiple times. For example, there will NEVER come a day no matter how much I love JaSam that I would buy 50+ copies of some soap mag just to vote in some supercouple poll. I find that absurd. If I had that kind of money burning a hole in my pocket I would give it to charity before I would buy all those copies of SID and yet there were people that BRAGGED about being a liason fan and doing just that. Im sure there were jasammers that did the same though I didnt see pictures on line of that kind of activity. I have said that I put more stock in FB because there you are somewhat limited in that you are unlikely to have multiple accounts so its clear when its the same people posting again and again (and I dont remember seeing a poll per se but they do ask questions for fans to answer and the response to sam and jasam has almost always been very high and very positive even in comparison to Liz and liason.) If you are calling me out on polls, i have to call foul on that because I have been completely consistent in my position on this subject.

As for liz living her life for her kids - would this be the kids she uses as manbait? (nik, aidens sick. Lucky we have boyzzz together. Jason we couldnt be together for the baby when we love other people, COULD WE??? - which btw use to remind me of the kid from pet cemetery, "I played with mom and now I want to play with UUUUUUUU") Would this include the kid she left alone in the hospital while she row row hoed her way to spoon island for a booty call? Would this be the kids from whom she stole? Would this be the kids she abandoned while she PRETENDED to need a visit in Shadybrooke just to get luckys attention? Would this be the kids she is constantly losing track of (whether at the carnival, the park, or even cam nearly burning down the house and nearly running out in to the same street that jake was killed on) WOuld this be the kids that spend more time with Audrey and Steve than with Liz? And if she is so focused on these boys of hers, where is she finding all this time to butt in to sams business, get in brookes face, snark at maxie, manhandle siobhan etc etc. Where is she finding all this time to eavesdrop on private conversations? Where is she finding all this time to chase lucky, counsel jason, picnic with matt, sit vigil for ewan, and wax the floor with nik. Lets not pretend here that St. Liz is some maternal goddess while Sam is unforgivable for having moments of doubt about motherhood at the hands of a rapist.

Doodle/Vet - I dont believe the headstone was picked out by Sam as she was still in the hospital so while I dont dispute what the headstone says I dont really care whats on it since Sam didnt pick it. What we do know is that sam specifically asked jason how he would feel about her desire to name the baby lila after his grandmother and he not only gave her his blessing, he was thrilled at the idea. There was never any discussion about naming her anything other than lila. I always sort of figured the headstone read BGM because sonny intended to try and name the girl adela and after the baby died, sam wouldnt have wanted to argue about the name of a child that didnt ultimately survive.

Kazy - its not sam fans that say the couple didnt exist, but rather liason fans who always say that they were never given the chance to exist because of frons. Its hard for me to call a couple that never was a "supercouple".

Is there a law against changing a headstone? The reality is headstones don't usually go on the grave for a few
Months but dramas usually add them for drama's sake. Sam could change that headstone anytime she wants but hasn't because the kid mever had a name

Hmmmm. I thought there was major fan backlash when Sam wanted to name her baby after Lila? It never made any sense why GH wanted to name Sonny and Sam's baby after Lila Quartermaine. Yes, Sam was pregnant and sitting on Jason's couch, but the baby Daddy was Sonny Corinthos.

the baby's father - not the sperm donor but the person that was going to actually raise the child - was Jason MORGAN, lilas grandson. Sam wanted to do that because she admired lila and she knew that it would please Jason.

Why on earth would she pull up the headstone and possibly argue with sonny when her daughter was gone. SHe knows what she intended to name the child and Jason knew what her name was going to be. No one else matters.

The baby is buried in Sonny's backyard so maybe Edward put his foot down. It is totally disrespectful to name Sonny's spawn after Lila.

FFIT- that is exactly what I thought. It is disgusting to keep burying babies in Sonny's backyard but both of Sam's are buried there. If you have a complaint , you should voice it to the GH showrunners. They are the ones who cut the budget and have Sam burying her babies there.

Seeing as Sam's baby and Tea's baby are buried in the Port Charles Cemetery along with many other PC citizens, it's a shame that such a spiteful, hateful poster would make such a tasteless, rude, disgusting suggestion otherwise!!!!! Sick Sick Sick Sick Sick

Ah, namecalling is so mature!

Hmm, wasn't it clear the many times I pointed out that the cemetary is Sonny's backyard?

I guess it is just fun to name call.

The only thing that clip shows is that Jasam wanted to name the baby Lila. In the end, however, they did not do so. The baby was "Baby Girl McCall". And to make up a scenario in which Sonny and Sam argue about the name after the baby's death and to declare that is why the headstone does not say Lila is a nice work of fiction, but not based on anything that happened on screen.

As for Facebook being more reliable, that is just not so. I have 4 FB accounts. One is for personal use, one for work, one for soaps, and one for my fantasy sports teams. Most of my friends and colleagues have at least 2 FB accounts.

Let's face it. None of these polls and sites can accurately show which fan base is bigger. What can? The ratings. Look at the incredibly low ratings pulled in over the last few years for all of the Jasam promotions. Heck, even the ratings for their sexico reunion, their wedding and the birth of their child were ridiculously low. And while many soaps have had bad numbers, Y&R and B&B have managed to still pull in strong numbers. It's the stories/couples that lead to low ratings. Jasam should at least be able to pull in strong numbers for their special events if they have such a huge fanbase.

I have 2 Facebook accounts. One for real life/one for soap stuff. Becky didn't even have a Facebook account until a couple of months ago. As for ABC Message Boards/Facebook accounts...most Liason fans over the age of 14 haven't visited ABC sponsored anything since Heck was a pup. We've been around a little while and only a few of us venture out of our safe places to spar with the masses. We've been there/done that but some of us are gluttons for punishment...lucky you. Innocent

JS, with all due respect, IMHO, you are splitting hairs. It's not as if Sam first decided to name her baby after Lila, but then switched the name to Sophia. The INTENT of both Jason and Sam was to name their (Jason planned to be the parent) child after his grandmother Lila. "Lila" is "Baby McCall's" DE FACTO name, and it suffices for me, and legions of other fans who see it the same way.

The same also holds true for Sam's (thought to be dead) baby boy. Sam stated that had he lived, she would have named him Jason, after his father.

I started to watch the YouTube link that was so graciously posted for my viewing pleasure. The first thing I noticed was how thin Steve Burton was at that time. Next, Sam didn't have a baby bump yet so it must have been right after Sonny pawned his mistress off to live on Jason's couch. Poor Jason. The next thing I immediately noticed were Sam's boobs. I couldn't get passed them...I was hypnotized. I'll try to watch that clip again after I find my 3D glasses...I want to see if they look any different in 3D. THEN I'll listen for content. Thanks for posting!

I don't think doodleynoodle was knocking boobs (although I'd certainly enjoy seeing that!). I think they were just standing out for her/him. I certainly didn't think he/she was being a boob knocker.

[Thank you for the opportunity to write ALL of that!] Laughing out loud

Would of, should of, could of. Fact is, she was never named. And it was in large part due to fan outrage that a true Quartermaine wasn't going to have the name. There was actually a huge phone/mail campaign against Sam and Sonny's baby being named Lila. And this wasn't a campaign by Liason fans. It was just general fans of the show.

I don't get why you all are arguing over a baby that was never intended to live, and was strictly just a plot point on the show.
First the baby was not jason's she was sonny's child. One thing you all have to acknowledge as true, is sonny is a selfish B...but he does love and acknowledge all of his children. Jason never would have been the father....at most he would have been the stepfather. As proven by sonnys presence in the hospital, and front and center at the memorial. It was never in the plans for Baby McCall to live. The baby was used as a vehicle to bring Jasam together. It would have to be something pretty big for Jason to overcome the fact, and allow him to be with any woman after they were first with Sonny. He wouldn't even look at Carly cross eyed after she slept with Sonny. So they used the abandoned woman pregnant with child to suck Jason in. He has always been a sucker for rescuing people. They allowed jasam to connect on a friend level first, But you notice he never kissed Sam until after her baby was dead, and the connection to Sonny severed.
If her baby had lived you never would have gotten your "ride and die chick or jasam. The show did not want Jason with a woman with children. They wanted them both free for adventure.....and sonny would have come between them eventually.....if Jason was able to get past her being Sonnys first. Soooooo if the baby lived it would have been Lila Corinthos anyway.
