I don't even know where to begin. Do I pull a quote of Jane Elliot reacting to Kin Shriner spitting fish tacos on her? What about those women Shriner had coming out of his dressing room—zipping up—during the 80's glory days? Did the late, great Gloria Monty really like Tony Geary best because he was drunker than the rest of the cast?
TV Guide Magazine's Michael Logan gathered the General Hospital superstars who made Tracy Quartermaine, Scotty Baldwin and Luke Spencer three of daytime television's most iconic characters for lunch recently. What transpired might be the funniest soap-themed interview I've ever read. Here are a few snippets:
Elliot on why she quit GH when Monty was showrunner:
"I quit because Gloria insulted me. I was making, like, a dollar and a quarter a week — horrible money, so little money that I asked for a $50 raise and Gloria told my agent I was unprofessional. Now, you can call me a lot of things but you cannot call me unprofessional. I was so insulted she applied that word to me that I said, "I'm not working for her anymore!" I finished out my contract and left. I went to Knots Landing for a bit, then Guiding Light. I didn't return until after Gloria was gone."

In the March 18-April 1 issue of ABC Soaps In Depth, Anthony Geary revealed how Lulu's crisis will impact Luke. Said Geary:
"It's really hard for him," says Anthony Geary (Luke) of the situation. "Lulu is his baby girl. She's the princess, the cupcake, the gumdrop."
