hrhkitty1: Oh yes
ozzygurl2008: oh yeah...i just ounth all the words
ozzygurl2008: can't help it
ozzygurl2008: *mouth the words
ozzygurl2008: typonese again
vickychandler87: me too!
crssmnc: do u think that C did the hotline b4 meeting vincent?
hrhkitty1: it just reeks how special and what atreasure you're going to see
datasgirl35: any of you guys ever done somethin like that?
ozzygurl2008: effective intervention...not personal invovlement....ha
ozzygurl2008: that always gets me
cocoacookie32: this is definately a first for me
vickychandler87: I did, with one of my students...
crssmnc: closest I have come is buying a homeless guy dinner
vickychandler87: I know what you're thinking... that weas not wise...
mini4many: i doubt it....she would have been to self absorbed
vickychandler87: but he was having a very bad time...
ozzygurl2008: i have a 17 yar old firend who is pregnat right now...took me a long time to gether to go to the doctor....i know my lenas
crssmnc: i was a lena at least with the teen pregnancy thing not the other
mini4many: i volunteered on a suicide hotline and one for unwed mothers
hrhkitty1: yes I've tried tointervene with a troubled girl
mini4many: that is NOT and easy job....emotionally
ozzygurl2008: i can imagine
cocoacookie32: how long did you stay mini
mini4many: you have to have training to work on those.
ericsunicorn: I would think it would be a hard job
datasgirl35: getting emotionally involved with outher problam can hurt
mini4many: the suiside hotline for 7 years
ozzygurl2008: hearing Lena say this makes me so thankful that I not only have my family..but our family too!
mini4many: the unwed mother hotline for 8 months until we lost our funding
cocoacookie32: that type of job and hospice are very hard emotionally
vickychandler87: I got a Chrismass card from this student, telling me how I had changed his life by staying those ten minutes talking really to him...
vickychandler87: I cried for another ten minutes!
hrhkitty1: >:D< Vicky
datasgirl35: that's sweet
crssmnc: vincent cares enen though he does not know lena b/c he was abandonded
vickychandler87: that's true
mini4many: *nod* and they hit it right on the nose with GBtC.....we don't have enough resourses to cover all the calls...and we had such strict rules and guidelines to go bu
datasgirl35: I like father in blue
ozzygurl2008: very nice
hrhkitty1: I agree
mini4many: i look back and think "gosh, i have done a lot in my lifetime...and it isn't over yet"
ozzygurl2008: his eyes really stand out
vickychandler87: Our wonderful Mini, endeed!
mini4many: and makes him look younger in my opinion
ozzygurl2008: it does!
vickychandler87: I like the fact that Father trusts Catherine... at last...
datasgirl35: yeah finally
crssmnc: the first step for him to accept her and vincent as a couple
cocoacookie32: he gave her a hrd enough time to finally trust her
mini4many: >:D< Vicky
mini4many: Father always trusted Catherine, except where Vincent was concerned
ozzygurl2008: I expetected Catherine to walk down with her this first time
vickychandler87: yes, you could be right. But he's a little... softer...
crssmnc: it would have been nice
hrhkitty1: maybe it was because V would have gone to meet her?
hrhkitty1: And they didn't want Lena introduced right away
cocoacookie32: he would have
crssmnc: i don't think he would have
vickychandler87: me neither
ozzygurl2008: Samantha is just so adorable
crssmnc: father would have told him about lena
cocoacookie32: is it just me or is father's sweate not as blue anymore
ozzygurl2008: it's not
crssmnc: gray but looked blue in the basement light
hrhkitty1: 'prolly lighting
ozzygurl2008: tunnel lighting
ozzygurl2008: the bond
vickychandler87: I love this carrol!
ozzygurl2008: oh me too
vickychandler87: It's always been one of my favourites
mini4many: Vincent would have stayed away until she had the baby if Lena hadn't happened upon him.....for fear of startling her into premature labor, i'm sure
cocoacookie32: good point mini
ozzygurl2008: I absolutely love hearing v's story
crssmnc: he probably stayed away when anyone new moved to the tunnels
ozzygurl2008: except when he helped Charles
mini4many: ha! The children know the story bette than Father now
crssmnc: b/c he thought it was an intruder not devin
ozzygurl2008: I know! It's so cute
vickychandler87: No, because he knew he was with Devin when he got there, and because of what Charles was saying
mini4many: my typonese is lousy today....having hand trouble....so excuse me and please read between the lines
vickychandler87: about "they wouldn't accept a freeek"
ozzygurl2008: that ep always breaks my heart
ozzygurl2008: both for our v and charles
crssmnc: mary is such a mom
datasgirl35: she's so nice
crssmnc: she reminds me of a very dear friend of mine
mini4many: l like the way Mary handles Lena's questions about V......."Vincent is very special to us."
vickychandler87: she's right! And he keeps holding all of us together too, he and Catherine
ozzygurl2008: i've always felt the urge to just give mary a big hug in that scene
ericsunicorn: he looks so sad here
datasgirl35: god he's gorgeous
ericsunicorn: I would like to know what he is thinking
crssmnc: yummy yummy
cocoacookie32: i think he is sad because she caught him off guard
ozzygurl2008: God couldn't you just....8->
mini4many: probably contemplating about C
crssmnc: yes i could
vickychandler87: How many times must he have been like that, throwing stones...
cocoacookie32: yeah that too
vickychandler87: that's what I ment!
ericsunicorn: even befor that went we first see him
vickychandler87: how many times...
vickychandler87: well, Lena was kind of ready to see something different...
crssmnc: plus she had been hearing bout him and how good he is
ozzygurl2008: you kind of can't blame lena...i mean she didn't really know about catherine at first...like v said about michael...who wouldn't love him?
vickychandler87: She really makes me nervous!
cocoacookie32: and she still managed a huge crush on v
mini4many: Lena accepted V's first sight better than C did....I always wondered about that.
cocoacookie32: why do you think he stayed to talk with her
ozzygurl2008: she was prepared...she heard storries
vickychandler87: she'd been kind of prepared: Father's stories
vickychandler87: and Maries...
ozzygurl2008: lol th bond vicky!
crssmnc: b/c he understands
cocoacookie32: i think C would have if it had not been at the same time she saw her scars
datasgirl35: he knew she needed someone
vickychandler87: true, Cocoa
mini4many: his empathic powers were so strong.....he felt Lena's aloneness i believe
vickychandler87: She was under so much fear
vickychandler87: Catherine, I mean
datasgirl35: Yeah C was already on an emotional rollercoaster
ozzygurl2008: yes, i mean she had been through such a traumatic time
vickychandler87: of course
vickychandler87: What a silly question! Odf course not
crssmnc: he is sooo strong
ozzygurl2008: tell me about it
cocoacookie32: i envy his empathy the most, but i think to have that all the time can make you crazy
ozzygurl2008: omg this always kills me
vickychandler87: You're probably right...
crssmnc: i dont think he had ever been present at a birth before. He looks so stiff
datasgirl35: he looks uncomfortable
vickychandler87: I think he has...
mini4many: Mary is so good duing this part
vickychandler87: but Lena is stil a stranger...
cocoacookie32: i think i would be uncomfortable watching a staanger give birth
ozzygurl2008: it would
cocoacookie32: look at fathers expression
mini4many: You notice...V reaches for Lena's hand
vickychandler87: Sorry, I can't help it
crssmnc: he worries father i mean
cocoacookie32: father doesnt like that little exchange between them
mini4many: and V can't take his eyes off of Lena's face
ozzygurl2008: me either..lol
crssmnc: me neither
vickychandler87: I'm glad I can't see that!
cocoacookie32: ME TOO!!
datasgirl35: I've seen a birth. I was there for my baby cousins
ozzygurl2008: look and he goes staright for her head
vickychandler87: I'm not talking about the birth...
mini4many: i can understand V doing this.....he is feeling the vibrations of pain and fear coming off of Lena and is offering his support and strength
cosi2cg: aspects I hadn't thought of before : V's questions about his own birth... do they surface now while he's watching this?
ozzygurl2008: i know but still...it should be cathy there
crssmnc: i imagine him thinking about future babies his and catherines when he looks at lena
vickychandler87: Do you think he can fel it, mini?
vickychandler87: Oh yes!
cocoacookie32: i think so...every birth must be a reminder
crssmnc: this season was so full of child imagery
mini4many: yes i do Vicky
cocoacookie32: and the love that surrounds a new baby must make hime a little jealous
ozzygurl2008: I think it gets to c when she sees v with lena's baby
vickychandler87: Yes, true
ozzygurl2008: she wishes it were theirs
crssmnc: she imagines it being hers
cosi2cg: I don't think he allows himself to consciously think of any offspring of his
hrhkitty1: The emotional level has to be so high he must
ozzygurl2008: you can just see it written on her face
ozzygurl2008: what if that were our baby?
ozzygurl2008: i love this!!
hrhkitty1: yeah it's killing her
mini4many: i love this part..Fand V discussing names
hrhkitty1: I LOVE C's retort
vickychandler87: Poor Catherine... Everybody always centers on Vincent's pain...
datasgirl35: don't you think Lena should have say in it
mini4many: shock on V's face
cocoacookie32: why do you think she didn't offer the baby to C
hrhkitty1: like what??
cocoacookie32: i think C was a little jealous or heard her clock ticking then
hrhkitty1: Jealos..already trying to lay a claim on V
ozzygurl2008: look at her...
crssmnc: i know
vickychandler87: good good good observation!
cosi2cg: I'd like to think C held the baby as well.. off screen
ozzygurl2008: this gives c away
cocoacookie32: i love this exchange
crssmnc: what is it like to hold a child
vickychandler87: the tone on her voice...
mini4many: I knew there were going to be problems to arrise after watching Lena's face when V held the baby
vickychandler87: I don't want to here this!
cocoacookie32: is one of wanting the same thing i think
ozzygurl2008: i know
crssmnc: i love the baby carrier
ozzygurl2008: she's trying to find common ground with him..i mean more in common anyway...to open new doors
cocoacookie32: he still seems nervous around Lena
vickychandler87: he notices...
crssmnc: wouldn't you be
vickychandler87: That's the Vincent-effect...
crssmnc: i am sure he knows about her past
ozzygurl2008: he's thinking, "Oh dear God, don't do this...Catherine....I love Catherine...."
cocoacookie32: now it dawns on him what she is getting at
mini4many: Lena is still feeling alone....even in the tunnels and with the baby....she feels the need for a one on one connection to someone.....V fit that catagory for Lena during this time.
vickychandler87: yes, yes!
ozzygurl2008: don't touch it! It's cathy's
datasgirl35: hands off!!!
vickychandler87: Me cries!
cocoacookie32: he is so gentle with her even trying to let her down easy
crssmnc: lena is selfish
vickychandler87: She wouldn't be there if not for Catherine! How can she say this...
ozzygurl2008: she does!
mini4many: With all that I am and with all that I can ever become.....*sigh*
crssmnc: even after he tells her he loves catherine she still tries and tries
ozzygurl2008: She does love him!
cosi2cg: Lena has found a safe place - must have waited forever for it - and suddenly "wants it all"
ericsunicorn: I think it hurt V to say she was were she need to be
ozzygurl2008: i hate it when she tries to say she doesn't
vickychandler87: Yes, that's why I don't believe this is really love... well, that's just me
cocoacookie32: i think you are righ ericsunicorn
ozzygurl2008: I'm saying when she talks about cathy not loving him. C does love him
vickychandler87: Of course!
cocoacookie32: love and infatuation feel similar
crssmnc: lena does not understand him and Catherine
datasgirl35: yeah and C would be down there if V would let here
ozzygurl2008: it's confusing at first
cosi2cg: I trust Vincent - if he's still gentle with her it's because of his empathy - she's in the wrong but she's not half as selfish as Lisa.
vickychandler87: like Michael and Catherine
ozzygurl2008: i don't know if it is really all v
mini4many: Lena was on the streets so young......she is feeling her first "puppy"(or kitty in this case) Love
vickychandler87: I needed that!
ericsunicorn: we all do
crssmnc: he must feel so bad about feeling that pull
mini4many: even V admits that there is an attraction for Lena to Father
vickychandler87: you're right, Monica
cocoacookie32: why do you think he never felt like a "possibility" for C
crssmnc: but he is someone else's possibility i wish he saw that
ozzygurl2008: he's amazed that it has happened again...it was enough for catherine to want him..to have someone...but now lena too
mini4many: feels like he is betraying C
vickychandler87: he did: he says "someone elses possibilityyy" that means he's already Catherine's possibility
crssmnc: how long do u think lena was below after the baby was born?
ozzygurl2008: he thought it was miracle enough for one woman to want him..let alone another come in
vickychandler87: he didn't say "someone's", he says "someone "else's"
cocoacookie32: in a way...but he won't act on that because he is afraid
crssmnc: arrggh i hate this part
cosi2cg: yes Vicky that's important
vickychandler87: you see' She know's he's a safe place for her and her baby
ozzygurl2008: oh look at him...no layers
vickychandler87: me tooooooo!
mini4many: V still feels that he can only be a "possibility" and never a certainty
ericsunicorn: get out
crssmnc: can u say slutty
vickychandler87: go away!
ericsunicorn: I heat ths part
vickychandler87: GRRRR! go away!
cocoacookie32: i like that idea...he needs to be certain
crssmnc: run vincent run far far away
ozzygurl2008: get out! that place is reserved for catherine chandler skank!
mini4many: good thing V has such strong morals
vickychandler87: what the hell are you dioing there!
ericsunicorn: it should be C there
hrhkitty1: you can say slutty... of course it's all she's known
vickychandler87: go away!
cosi2cg: why don"t you snarl at her
cosi2cg: I draw back all I wrote earlier
vickychandler87: hahahahaha! Claire, that's true!
cocoacookie32: he still didn't want to hurt her
cosi2cg: I know, I know, cocoa...
crssmnc: aha she finally gets it
ozzygurl2008: she crossed the line...trying to get in v's bed
mini4many: hehehe...i want to be doing the snarling
vickychandler87: I'm jealous in Catherine's behalf, just the way I was about Elliot kissing Catherine
vickychandler87: for Vincent...
cosi2cg: omg what if Father had had insomnia that night
ozzygurl2008: oh yeah
crssmnc: me too
vickychandler87: I wish!
ericsunicorn: I felt like for a sec he would go after L
cocoacookie32: that would have been interesting
mini4many: heart attack.....or beat Leana with his cane
ozzygurl2008: beat lena
crssmnc: love the virginal nightie c is wearing
cosi2cg: C should jump his bones upon hearing his report
vickychandler87: Well, Father knows Vincent wouldn't act upon Lena's "advances", but he wouln't resist Catherine's
ericsunicorn: do you think he tells C about coming to him in his bed
ozzygurl2008: I'd love to have seen him wiht insomnia and catch him a c together...
mini4many: this is killing V to have to confess this all to C
vickychandler87: Killing Vincent? And what about Catherine?
vickychandler87: Give me a break!
mini4many: C was so compassionate.....not showing her jealousy....
cocoacookie32: yet he still never tells Catherine about her coming to his bed..that would have been a little cruel
crssmnc: but she understands b/c she wants him
hrhkitty1: she's the better woman.
ozzygurl2008: i think she should have jumped him! she wants to say..ok let me mark my territory baby, they're getting too cles
hrhkitty1: but we knew that
hrhkitty1: lol Amber
hrhkitty1: can you imagine what V would have done?
cocoacookie32: and she offers to find her...i don't think i would have
vickychandler87: Me neither! no way!
mini4many: i just love trying to find C's rose pouch on every shot of V
vickychandler87: But her baby is Below...
ozzygurl2008: if he fainted..all the more fun things she could do to him..lol!
cocoacookie32: not much experience in motherhood
hrhkitty1: lol.. but wouldn't be half as enjoyable without full participation
mini4many: OK....Ladies......down, down.....cool off
mini4many: *passes around iced tea and towels*
vickychandler87: This episode is getting more comments even than A happy life...
vickychandler87: here, here!
crssmnc: scary bldg
cocoacookie32: C must have friends at dmv for all the times she has 'lost ' her purse in this series

mini4many: you just have to be like Catherine and see through that disguise to the wonderful heart beneath
ozzygurl2008: well said mini
