Dillon: [about his upcoming wedding to Georgie] Thank you for understanding, just going along with the whole thing.

Tracy: Well, I — I have to admit — I’m a little surprised that you remember anything I’ve ever said to you, much less taken my advice seriously.

Dillon: You’re the only mom I got.

Tracy: And I don’t suppose I’ve been a very generous one. I never made you the center of my life. And I can imagine that I’ve let you down in a lot of ways that I — I will never be able to comprehend. But I do want what’s best for you.

Dillon: I know.

Tracy: And I want you to be happy. And if marrying Georgie is going to make you happy, then I won’t stand in your way. And I will take full responsibility for dropping you in too small a pond. I mean, what did I expect? Of course you were going to fall in love with the underage offspring of a civil servant. What choice did I give you? I will accept the fact that you are about to marry so beneath your station that you’re going to get the bends. But I will not accept that you’re going to die.

Tracy: Monica? I — um — I need to tell you something —

Monica: Tracy, I’m —

Tracy: No — it’s only going to take a minute. I regret the way I treated Emily. The truth is I — um — I resented the way everybody compared her to my mother because it’s true. She has…

oh that sucks :(

not that she’s ugly with short hair, but i just really love the long/medium hair. it suited her face and when i watch old videos, i just keep on wishing she still had them.

I’ve been wishing for the same thing..since she cut it off in January 2008. lol. Every once in awhile, it’ll grow to a place where I think, “Hey, maybe I can get used to the short hair.” Then, she chops it all off again, and it ends up looking like this… :(

 

or

It’s her hair, and she can do what she wants. I just think it looks better longer.

She is still a fabulous actress though. :) I wanted her to win the Daytime Emmy for Supporting Actress.

Regarding your tags #i miss tracy with long hair  #it totally suited her 

I miss the long hair too. It was so beautiful. 

I read a recent interview where Jane Elliot said she was too old for long hair. I adore Jane, but I have no idea what she’s talking about. Medium length/longer hair totally suits her, just like you said.

They’ve actually done studies on women over 40 and 50 and how long hair makes people perceive that they’re trying to stay young which in turns makes them seem older but the studies said shoulder length was the limit, nothing longer.  Not that people have to give a damn about studies but many older women do tend to cut their hair above the shoulders once they reach a certain age for just that reason or something similar.  While I love Jane Elliot with the short hair, she looked great with the longer hair as well.

I do remember reading something about that (in fact, it’s why my mom won’t let her hair go past her shoulders), but I think Jane Elliot has the face and features to make the longer hair work now. I think shoulder length/slightly above/slightly below is a good length for her, especially when it’s styled in a way so that it has volume.

Not that I have any clue what I’m talking about. I start each day by wearing my hair down, and as soon as it gets in my face or gets too hot, it goes up in a pony tail, and I don’t even use a mirror when I pull it up, lol. I’m just like “Whatever.”

Susan: Kerry, I killed three patients today. It would have been four if I would’ve stayed with that kid.
Kerry: No. You were unable to save three patients. You didn’t kill them.
I mean, I’ve - I’ve seen you save twice that many without breaking a sweat - Go home. Have a drink, maybe two. Tomorrow’s another day.
[sarcasm] But if you lose more than one patient, you’re fired [/sarcasm].
Susan: Thanks.

Molly: He told me he loved me. When he hit me, he used to tell me that it was for my own good, and he did it because he loved me. Just to hear him say it was worth the pain. So I let him. And it kept getting worse, and I just kept letting him.

Catherine: You never fought back?

Molly: I couldn’t.

Catherine: You never thought you deserved better?

Molly: No.

Catherine: You do, Molly.

Molly: Oh, I don’t think so. I don’t think so, Catherine.
