General Hospital: Perkie's Observations


Lulu and Dante get home, after weeks in the hospital.  He’s still complaining about wanting to announce the engagement at the party. She reminds him of Kristina and tells him Olivia wasn’t feeling well with dizzy spells. Dante calls his mother, who assures him she’s fine.  He and Lulu discuss the night of the engagement and everything Lulu put together, only to have it fall apart with the call that he’d been shot.  She feels bad for not accepting the first time. 

Dante says he’ll be happy if she puts on the ring. She gets it and he slips it onto her finger.  He assures her that love will get them through.  She decides to leave, but he doesn’t want her to.  She reminds him he was just released from the hospital and can’t engage in any activity.  He begs, so she offers to sleep on the couch.  Once he’s asleep, she pulls out the bottle of champagne from the fridge and has a drink. 

Kate feels Sonny needs to confront his past and face it. Sonny doesn’t want to go down memory lane with Kate. It’s too painful, because his life is a mess.  He remembers her as the beautiful girl he ended up losing.  He wants to focus on now and face the future.  She reminds him he bought his old house as a power move. 

Kate asks about Johnny and Carly. Sonny feels Carly can do whatever she wants. He wants to concentrate on Kate.  Kate wants to dance.  Coleman switches the song on the jukebox. Sonny unplugs it and the two dance to an imaginary song.  They almost kiss, but pull back.  He decides to call it a night, which surprises Kate.  Sonny says he wants to take things slow. He was in a mood about Johnny and doesn’t want their time together to be because he was in a mood.  He says he hopes to see her soon, and leaves.

Coleman says he doesn’t appreciate Kate using him to get Sonny’s attention. He’s tired of being Sonny’s flunky.  He tells her there are other bars in town and to go to one of those.  Kate says she likes Jake’s and doesn’t care if he’s jealous.  Coleman tells her to finish her drink and get out.
