  1. The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

    Thank you, it's appreciated more than you know. I hope everyone else had a good Mother's Day, whether you are a mother or not. hooked-not sure a life coach is what I need-but I do feel I'm on the verge of some kind of major change. It can't come soon enough-I'm in a rut-but I say that every other month because I get bored so easily. Routine of any kind is not my friend. My thoughts on JE's last show: I got a little teary-more than I thought I would. I loved the goodbyes, all of them. JE and WK just about did me in-I cried the hardest when he teared up. You could tell it was "real". The group hug tore at my heart. Sad little goodbye to Finn. No more board games. I would have loved more with Tracy/Lulu, Tracy/Hayden and Tracy/Michael. She should have had longer goodbye scenes with them all-stretched out over several days. I didn't even mind so much of Laura in Tracy's last days. Some Laura/GF fans are good eggs, and I enjoyed talking with them. Others of them? Not so much. I haven't watched GH since she left, not in a hurry to, either. I do think I'll order some Tracy edit DVD's. And I'll tune in for the Niv wedding, if we get one. But I kinda think Olivia is horribly boring, so I hope we don't. Still, if it gets the Quartermaines more focus, eh. I can live with it. I hope everyone is doing well, I look forward to any fan fictions anyone might be inspired to write.

    Truenorth congrats on your babies, that's wonderful. Big wave hello to everyone here. Yep, today is Jane's last day. I'm relieved, happy for her, sad too. I've been especially emotional the past few weeks the closer we get to Mother's Day, facing my first without my mama. It's been pretty rough, and I say that as someone who is not ashamed to cry. Jane leaving is also like a death in a way, because this time, I have very little hope if any, that she will be back. All the times before, there was was at least that. Now, I doubt the show will last long enough for her to ever do so. And in her interviews, she seems pretty definite on not acting anymore-at least not on GH. So yeah, yesterday I did weep a bit. It's interesting what hooked said, that Jane was there when she needed her and is going out now that she doesn't. Sometimes though, we don't get a choice about when we have to let go-and that's my situation here. Jane was on so infrequently since really for the whole entire time of this run, that it was hard to get as attached as I did back in the late eighties/early nineties. So it will be easier to let her go now. I will miss Tracy and her family, Tracy and her friends. I think the people in the room yesterday were the people that needed to be there-no more, no less. Would have loved to see Brook Lynn come back briefly, though. Oh, well. I feel the "story" they have given her has been a lame joke, but as always, Jane is making diamonds out of coal. No surprise there. I think we are supposed to assume now that the plaque never really knocked her out-she just had, as she put it yesterday, a "hallucination"(isn't that what she said?). Samira was pointless. I didn't like most of the clips-most of them were not great choices-I was confused as to why they picked the ones they did. Anyway-today's the day. Would be nice if we all still check in from time to time-would love to read what you all are up to. Been nice chatting with you all over the years. I am very inspired by Jane's reinvention of herself now as well-I too have been contemplating the same thing, but I have been traveling for my job almost every day, so making plans for the future is on the side(not back) burner for now. I loved her quote about her education, because going back to school is something I am contemplating. I hope everyone is well. We will have to gather and dish on what we thought about the last episode.

    Has Jane even been on in this entire month? If so, I missed it. Stupid show. At this point, by the time she leaves, people will be like, "Tracy who?" Ms.Q, I PM'd you.
  4. The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

    Aw Ms.Q that Burgi quote makes me miss Tracy/Paul SO much. Thanks for posting the AMC clip, DRW50. So, who is enjoying Tracy and Hayden? I kinda like them and Finn together, but hate that they won't write for Tracy. Stupid show. Still, JE has had awesome stuff the last month or two. It could be(and has been) worse. Ms.Q, I left you a PM.
  5. The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

    Jane has had some great stuff the past few months. Sorry I have not posted here much, so much going on IRL and with the holidays and all. Anyway, I hope everyone is doing well, had a good Thanksgiving, and here's to a great Christmas and Happy New Year. I am anxious for 2017. It's going to be a year of change in many ways. Here's hoping they are good ones. And yes Ms.Q, happy late birthday !

    Even a stopped clock is right twice a day, so the rumor of Jane retiring doesn't mean much to me unless there are concrete details about when. Sure, she's probably *thinking* about retiring, and God willing, will retire one day. Besides, we knew about TG retiring MONTHS ahead of time. So it will be with Jane, unless she herself says to keep it secret until the end, and why would she? I really don't think Frank Valentini is that dumb, to not give the mags and the fans a heads up in advance to prepare to say goodbye. She's the current oldest contract cast member, and the longest contract character in terms of years of show history. He'd be foolish to just drop a line in SOD the week before she's out. Then again, a lot of the stuff he has done has been very foolish. I still doubt it's going to be anytime in the next few months. Her contract is up for renewal-or it is close to that time-and talks start months ahead of time. Jane would have told them then, I think. We'd already know by now. Mags typically don't comment any more about an actor signing a new contract, only when they are coming and going. Either way, I do think the viewers would know a few months ahead of time, especially considering they tape about six weeks ahead, and stories are written months in advance. So for now, we're safe. Personally, as long as they keep giving her good material like she's gotten the past month, I want her to stay until GH ends, if SHE wants to.

    Jane has just been awesome recently. No posts in two weeks here? :(( I hate what they did to Paul. Even if Richard wanted to leave, it didn't have to be like that. Last week, yesterday, he and Jane and even FH-who I normally don't think much of-have been great. Robert has been good, too. I love how forceful and protective Dillon can be over his mama. That, my friends, is a real man. Kiki deserves to lose any hope of a chance with Dilly.
  8. The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

    Congrats truenorth, that is wonderful news. I have been so busy with work and traveling, no time to post online really. But will have to watch this week's episodes and let you know what I thought. For those who have already watched, wasn't Tracy on all five days?
  9. The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

    *waves back* I guess I just have a fondness for RC's respect for JE. Yeah, some of his stuff was dumb, but I do think he really liked writing for Tracy. I am not so sure these writers do. I think they recognize Tracy is popular, and respect Jane as an actress, but I don't get the feeling they just are chomping at the bit to write her a story. I do still think maybe something is coming for her-exit story or not. Guess we'll see !
  10. The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

    *waves to truenorth and Ms.Q* Yeah, I don't know what is up with the whole "your body is still recovering" jazz. If they were just going to shove Tracy out of the story as the rescuer, why involve her at all? As you said Ms Q Sonny has to have his paws in everything. This show is a mess. *sigh* I'm strangely all right if Jane does retire. If they are not going to make use of her, it's probably for the best. However-I always kind of pictured her as staying for a few more years-if the show is still around. I would like her to get a good exit story, but these writers couldn't do it justice I don't think. I wonder if they could make a deal that RC was a temp writer just for the purpose of writing her out. I always felt he loved writing for Tracy. He gave Tracy Joe Jr, after all.

    I feel weird posting in here, basically replying to myself. But oh well. I enjoyed Tracy the last few appearances-I always do. Part of me is a little scared they'll never again give JE a love interest. Trying to be positive though-but other than throwing Paul at her, who is there? I doubt they'd let Tracy win against Hayden for Finn-even if Tracy wanted him-but who knows at this point, if she even would? They aren't giving her much to do, or much of a perspective, compared to others. I can't tell-but I do think Tracy is lonely, which is one reason she clings to Finn in the first place. But-you know how I had that "feeling" they were planning something, then they gave her the illness story(as pitiful as it was?). I have that feeling again-they are planning something for her-something pretty awesome and dramatic and something that will let JE sink her teeth in to it. It's just feeling for now...but I was right last time, so. We'll see.

    Long gone are the days when any soap board is hopping-but yeah it's sad to see hardly anyone posting here anymore. I did mean to come in and bump the thread because she was on last Friday, but her scenes were so short and I just honestly couldn't think of anything to say other than groaning about how they aren't using her, LOL. I do think she will be on the 30th and/or the 1st of next week as well as the dates you posted, Ms.Q. There is a spoiler out there somewhere for one of those days. Sometimes I think we'd be better off if Jane went to recurring, but I doubt it, because there are already dozens of people who we only see sporadically. I still do think there's more there, and I try to keep hoping for the best, that they are going to give her more to do and maybe even a story of her own, about her. Note to TPTB that airtime propping Finn and Hayden ain't it. Though I don't mind THEM supporting TRACY'S story, that would be a nice change.
  13. The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

    See I kinda got the feeling that while Jane is looking forward to retiring, she didn't speak of it as something happening really soon. Who knows? I prefer to think she'll be around another year or more. What are they doing with the baby stuff? Not sure they even know, LOL. Long lost kid, or just filler material that leads nowhere, with these writers, could be either/or or neither. I am grateful we get to see her, just wish she had better material. This isn't really about "her". And I do want her to have something about her, even the worm infestation was more about Finn and Jason getting to play hero.
  14. The Tracy Quartermaine Lovefest

    truenorth, we hardly ever see ELQ. It is basically just ordinary corporate office looking, multi story, etc. We used to see so much more of the Q mansion than we do now. Now, it's basically the Q sitting room. The boathouse now and then, and the foyer. Tracy, back in the day when they showed her bedroom, was huge LOL. I would imagine her closet alone is probably the size of most people's rooms. I hope we get good Tracy stuff this week, anxious about what is in that letter Dillon finds. Good to see you posting, Ms.Q ! Ever since Luke left, it's been pretty slow around here. It's kinda sad.
