The dream team of Kimberly McCullough and Finola Hughes are back!

But this time not as mother/daughter on ABC’s General Hospital, where for decades they have played Robin and Anna, but as director and actress, as McCullough directs Hughes on-screen in her passion project pilot of Hey Day!

In the just released short clip from Hey Day, Hughes is seen having quite the ‘frank’ talk to Chrissie Fit who plays the lead in Hey Day.

Fans have rallied around McCullough’s project when news spread that former GH star John Stamos (Ex-Blackie Parrish) was also creating a series inspired by his time on a soap in the 80’s.

Watch this little nugget from Hey Day after the jump, and then let us know if you are excited to see more!

Hey Timmm..
Ohh the ever versatile Fu** <– can't even write it out, how ridiculous..
That word has a 1000 meanings of expression..
and rarely is one intercourse LOL

ahaa my hatch on the car snapped and knocked me on the head, it HURT.. I was jumping yelling' FU** to express my pain.. and that says; Pain!
It is the most expressive word, ever.

that word lost its' juice years ago, why its hung onto is beyond me, it means only what the expression is..

0ooh this is funny..
in checkout lane grocery store..
elderly grandma was digging in her purse for a 25 cent coupon holding up the line.
the guy behind me laid a quarter down and said, paid for, move on..
she turned, gave him the death eye and said;
'' I'm not moving on until I find the FU^^ING coupon..!!
See, the expression word is used by everyone for whichever occasion LOL

LOL. SuzieQ. The word is not ‘BAD’. Society makes things’ bad’. You know, as kids we were always told not to say certain words, or else. I couldn’t even say, ‘stupid’, especially to my siblings. Now, I call them stupid all the time. LOL.
It’s like the word ‘bitch’. The definition is “the female of the species ( canine). But, we tell our kids not to say it. Society dictates it. In different cultures/languages, the term is used, and not considered a no-no.
The stigma remains. I even think of the word, and I see my mother’s eyes boring into me. HaHa!!
But, I almost said it just this morning. Men can be such idiots, su…..know what I mean? LOL…Sorry,guys!!

Jimh(leave it to beaver)

You would never believe the words my late grandma use…if she were alive today she could make a rapper blush-lol

Celia

Let me explain. Saying that word does not come easy for me. I never say it….but, I might say it to myself, sotto voce. So, Timmmy; when I hear someone such as Anna/Finola , whom I adore, and consider a lady, say it…I appreciate it.
Bottom line….we all say ‘WORDS’, just not outloud.

hi Celia ! 🙂
for fun;
what makes the F word so bad?
Why is it profiled as the worst word in history .. LOL

Our tv/movies have rape, torture, bad azz sex, and the bad of the bad, the unthinkable, there are no stop signs for anything in our books, music, media and the F word gets bleeped,,, ahaaa!

Timmm
Timmm

Yeah, that word should be reserved for special occasions! I’m not a big fan of swearing. I do find it easier to write than to say! AND, call me old fashion but It is a big turn off for me to hear a women swear like a sailor!

Rose

Celia…you are a master of words. What is this one’s origin? Even asking this question I can’t say it easily. Remember when I once used it to my Mother as a teenager. She was by no means an obusive (sp?) mom, but she slapped me across the face (I can still feel it) and said to never use that word again, especially to her. So even if the hatch hits me on the head like Su I can’t say it. Must admit s**t has been my go-to word instead under these kind of situations.

LOL…the word rolls off my tongue whenever I’m pissed. I find it quite cathartic… 🙂

GENERAL HOSPITAL Flips The Switch In Sonny-Centric Episode Featuring Standout Performances

On Monday, in honor of Maurice Benard’s 25th anniversary as Sonny Corinthos on ABC’s General Hospital, the daytime drama took a look at what life would have been like if Sonny had not fallen in to a life of crime and in the mob. The standalone episode featured the return of Dominic Zamprogna as Sonny’s eldest son, Dante.

But in the twist on ‘soap-reality’, Dante was now the ascending mobster in Port Charles, and Sonny was a sergeant in the police department in Brooklyn married to Olivia Falconeri (Lisa LoCicero).  It all beings when Sonny remembers being 18-years-old and that fatal day when he shot Vincent Marino.  The young Sonny is played by Maurice’s real-life son.   Sonny then dreams of what would have happened to him if he never pulled that trigger.

Sonny is now a by-the-book cop, who visits his son Dante along with Olivia.  When they get there, Dante is now married to Sam (Kelly Monaco), who is his trophy wife.  Dante is working for the Jerome family – enter Julian (William deVry) and Ava (Maura WestO – and we quickly learn that “Jason Smith” is the hit man who works for them.  And, wouldn’t you know?  Seems like Ava and Jason have a “thing” going on … sealed with a kiss.

Now disturbed by his son’s life of crime, Sonny goes to the PCPD to talk to the police commissioner, who is now Anna Devane (Finola Hughes).  In the story, Anna is very inward, depressed, and more.  We find out that her daughter, Robin died of complications from AIDS in the 90’s, in which Anna has never recovered from.   We also learn at the PCPD that Alexis (Nancy Lee Grahn) is the current District Attorney.

Carly (Laura Wright) enters the scene, and she is still married to A. J. Quartermaine.  Sonny takes a liking to her and vice-versa.  We later learn that Jordan (Briana Nicole Henry) is back working for the DEA and Dante has gone undercover to bring down the Jeromes; so the entire territory is under his control.

Dante and Sam have a major falling out, as he is excited by the power he will have once he rids the Jeromes out of his business.  Sam has had it. She doesn’t want to dress like this, be his trophy wife, or have this kind of life. When Dante walks out, an upset Sam is alone with Jason, and the two connect.

In the conclusion of the episode, Dante shoots Jason on the pier, a scene which Sonny walks in on.  Sonny and his son struggle for the gun, and once again Dante is shot, just like in the original version of the story years ago, but with the twist of the struggle.  Olivia comes running onto the pier and sees Dante shot, and yells at Sonny the signature line, “You shot your own son!”

CourtesyABC

At the end of the dream, Sony goes back to the mark in time where he decides whether or not to pull the trigger on Marino with Mike (Max Gail) and him looking on at the young version of himself.  In the end, Sonny still pulls the trigger.

The episode featured stand-out performances by: Dominic Zamprogna (how great was it to see him again, and to see him play Dante’s dark side), Maurice Benard (who illustrated the other side of Sonny, more reserved, and delivered a heartbreaking speech as Sonny to Dante about his life being abused, and the choices he made), Kelly Monaco (who showed a woman unhappy with the outward shell she had created and been a part of), and Finola Hughes,who gave us a different look  at what life would have been like for Anna had Robin been taken from her years ago.  Additionally, it was nice to see the entire cast deliver in support of making this episode work in the ‘flip the switch’ sequence of events.

So, what did you think of the Sonny-centric episode? Who was your favorite in it?  Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
