Luke to Tracy on Yesterday's GH: "Oh Tracy, Sadly One Life to Live Isn't On Anymore!"

If you were quick enough to pick up another “Carlivati” special on yesterday’s episode of General Hospital, you noticed that during a scene between Luke (Anthony Geary) and Tracy (Jane Eliot), over how Tracy will get ELQ back with the help of  “Pickled Lila,  she grabbed for the television remote in the Quartermaine living room.

When Tracy pressed it to surf the channels, Luke said, “Oh Tracy, sadly One Life to Live isn’t on anymore.”  To which Tracy responded, that she wasn’t looking for that, but for the financial channel to check ELQ stock prices.  Of course, Tracy did not get far, as when she turned on the TV, Luke learned that Anna had been held at gunpoint earlier in the day by vampire slayer, Lucy.

When we heard Luke calling out the cancellation of One Life to Live, we couldn’t help but grin from ear to ear, that leave it to the current GH regime, they are still paying homage to the beloved soaps and its fans, and the fact that it the series is gone from the ABC Daytime landscape.

If you missed yesterday’s episode, you can watch it here via ABC.com and check out around the 15:15 minute mark for the exchange between Tracy and Luke.

Did you notice Luke’s nod to One Life to Live?  Let us know your thoughts!

I called in on GH comment line and suggested that they offer Prospect Park free product placement for use of their characters to come back to GH…With the shout out about OLTL, I am thinking that ABC will be doing this.I suggested that The younger people talk about OLTL and being able to watch it online and see them watching it on their ipad, etc..

loved it. i enjoy those little things. i wished Luke said it louder so ABC heard it too. Frank and Ron better get an emmy for their work here, or somethings wrong. other shows could learn from them.

Since ABC is part owner of Hulu, maybe it it ABC that wants the crossovers. If more people watch PROSPECT PARK’S OLTL, they might also tune in to GH. No one is saying yet what exactly is happening to the characters.

I saw it and was kind of shocked! I couldn’t imagine why Luke would say it and why they would write it in. Just thought it was odd.

Had PP gotten all their ducks in a row in February 2012, FV/RC would be writing STILL for OLTL. It was when PP deal fell thru that ABC picked them up as producer and writer. They both get kudos for having OLTL as ABC #1 soap when it went off the air, so I’m sure they still believe OLTL is still partially their baby!

FV & RC were hired by GH long before the end of OLTL. How do you know they would have hired FV & RC? why would they want them they suck and you gh fans will fins that out soon enough!!

Loved it! Love how GH and OLTL are blending and sharing the best of both worlds. Keeping the craft alive….awesome! 🙂

I agree. Do you remember back in the day when they did cross-overs? They did it all the time………IT WAS GREAT! I can see Anna hot on the trail for an escaped Lucy heading for Llanview after Caleb, and Anna finding out that there have been mysterious deaths where the cause of death was “loss of blood” and there’s only 2 puncture wounds. Somehow, John is allowed bail and he is also heading for Llanview behind Anna…………..Oh, could be oh so good.

I love when RC treats us with his ”mentions” .. He has never forgotten ‘his’ OLTL ..
When I heard Luke say, “Oh Tracy, sadly One Life to Live isn’t on anymore.” that gave me my first chuckle of the day .. 🙂

Yes, I caught it, but was surprised Tracy comeback was about that she wasn’t looking for OLTL, and that if she was, she would have be grabbing her laptop since it was moving online !

Now that was be a great way to cross promote the shows in my opinion.

I caught it too lol. Yeah it’s not on TV anymore it’s on Hulu and Hulu Plus! Watch out Port Charles because Llanview is coming back!

Actually, since OLTL happens in the universe of GH, Luke should have told Tracy that Fraternity Row was no longer on the air – but that might have been too inside.

Alan
Guest
Alan

that’s what i was thinking. In the General Hospital universe, Llanview is a real town with real people, three of which currently live in Port Charles. He should have said Fraternity Row was no longer on the air, to be more realistic. But i suspect this was a subtle dig at ABC for cancelling OLTL. I remember one episode of OLTL in the final months, Blair sang the 1980’s theme song and then at the end she pointed out how sad it was.

Oh I caught it alright! Do you think abc will run any ads for AMC & OLTL once they launch online?

Alan
Guest

Prospect Park will have to pay for the ads but if they are smart they will do just that. They should buy advertising time during all four remaining soaps and maybe the View.

doesn’t it seem like it’s “Pickled Lila” that is the “missing” shares of ELQ?

I’m going to burst in to tears, when Tracy… realizes just how loved and as the last remaining sibling of Edward and Lila…. she is.

Caught it, loved it, rewound & played it again! Love the cross overs. Even way back when all the shows were on the air, someone from Llanview would mention Pine Valley or vice versa. But yeah, loved Luke saying that.

I thought it was rather clever and funny! I still want Todd, John and Star to stay on GH, but I will check out OLTL out of curiosity… Just not sure I will stick with it….

Product placement for PP on GH is a great idea, but I still don’t know that I will pay to watch the PP shows online. This may well be the way future shows are made available to viewers, not via television but as online subscriptions.

Product placement is a great idea.. Desperate house wives did it with Nissan cars.. I will def pay to see oltl on Hulu

I normally like the little comments like when Todd said something about America not needing another daytime talk show, however I didn’t like this, considering that we have crossover characters and Llanview is often referred to as a real place they shouldn’t have mentioned OLTL.

General Hospital’s Halloween Week Promo Touts Wicked Surprises

Looks like everyone will be on edge this week as Halloween comes to Port Charles.  In the newly-released ABC promo for General Hospital, it reveals that this spooky week of episodes will be a rollercoaster ride, featuring wicked surprises, and killer costumes.

After Epiphany (Sonya Eddy) scolds Franco (Roger Howarth) for having his hand in the candy jar, Anna (Finola Hughes) or is it? … is donning a black witches hat. Jackie (Kim Delaney) is seen opening her door, juxtaposed with Valentin (James Patrick Stuart) saying “trick or treat”. But, is he actually at the door of someone else?

Nikolas (Marcus Coloma) asks Ava (Maura West), “Darling, what are you holding behind your back?” That is revealed to be a knife, but is it Ava who truly has the knife?

 

Meanwhile, Jason (Steve Burton) is looking around in the dark.  Elsewhere, Peter is jumpy.  So much so that Spinelli (Bradford Anderson) utters, “Looks like you’ve seen a ghost.”

Add all that to last Friday’s episode of GH where Carly(Laura Wright) thinks she saw Nelle’s (Chloe Lanier) hand come out of her grave and attack her! Is Nelle (Chloe Lanier) going to be proven to be alive? And if so, will she pop up on Halloween and scare the hell out of Carly?

Watch the promo below, then let us know what you think will happen this week on General Hospital via the comment section.
