It is really rare that the following words come out of my mouth these days, but… Jason Morgan was totally my hero today.
YOU NO LIKE JASON WHEN HE ANGRY!
Well, turns out I like him quite a bit. I know, right? Let’s all savor this bit of tasty truth-telling delight, shall we?
MICHAEL: I’m not gonna let Lucky, who turned his back on his–
JASON: SHUT UP! You keep saying that you’re a man, that you want to live on your own, but you’re acting like a little bitch. Like all those other rich kids who have no respect for anything or anyone.
Quit disrespecting the people who are trying to protect you. I mean, you looked like an IDIOT at Jake’s talking to Lucky like that. I was embarrassed for you, man. I still am!
You know what the problem is? That we’ve spoiled you for so many years. Me, most of all. Well, I’m done. From now on, keep your mouth shut! Show some respect! Go to school! If you don’t, I’ll make you. Now, apologize to your mother. Stand up!
Now, normally I might be irritated about the “little bitch” comment, but you know what? Michael is just the kind of cocky little shit for whom that would be the most humiliating insult possible. So I’m cool with it.
(Of course, none of that stopped him from later condescending to his mother that her silly, little lady brain just wasn’t capable of understanding the business like he could. Which… shut up, Michael. Seriously. We get it: you are definitely your father’s douchey, misogynist son.)
There is something really satisfying about Jason screaming “shut up!” at the obnoxious assholes who regularly run their mouths off at him. Probably because he so seldom does it. It makes me reminisce about this oldie but goodie, wherein Carly finally pushes him too far (starts around the 6:14 mark):
Oh, yeah. That’s the stuff.
Naturally, because this is still General Hospital, every moment of awesomeness must be offset with an equal and opposite amount of terminal WTF:
LULU: Look, I get Sonny’s a criminal. I just don’t think that’s all he is.
I–what? Who is disputing that? It’s not like anyone’s claiming he doesn’t give to charity or love his kids. Plenty of horrible people love their kids! Does Lulu think there’s an exemption clause for people who like to kill and steal but also love puppies?
Earth to CRAZY: there’s no rule that says only one-dimensional sociopaths should be prosecuted for their crimes! And I’m sorry, but if Sonny paying for choosing a life of breaking the law causes his children heartbreak, how is that anyone’s fault other than his own?
I swear, it’s like they want me to to go back to hating her.
