Q.I have watched GEN­ERAL HOSPI­TAL for 45 years, and I’m confused by Sonny re­fer­ring to Spencer as his nephew. Who was Spencer’s mother, and how was she re­lated to Sonny? Mar­garet Koester

Water­man, IL.

A.With 45 years of GH his­tory in your head, it’s no sur­prise you need an oc­ca­sional re­fresher on the past! Spencer’s mom was Court­ney Matthews, who came to Port Charles in 2001 look­ing for her own mother, Ja­nine, who was in town try­ing to run a con on the lo­cal Daddy War­bucks,

Ed­ward Quar­ter­maine. Also in town was Mike Corbin, the fa­ther who’d walked out on Sonny when he was a boy. Court­ney im­me­di­ately rec­og­nized Mike as her own fa­ther, whom Ja­nine had claimed had died af­ter he’d walked out on them! The re­union was a bit rocky, but Sonny en­thu­si­as­ti­cally slipped into the role of pro­tec­tive big brother. Court­ney died of a deadly virus shortly af­ter giv­ing birth to Spencer, but Sonny has re­mained a lov­ing part of his young nephew’s life!

“Count­ing the ways Mike hurt us may take more than 10 fin­gers. Have yours ready!”

Q.On DAYS OF OUR LIVES, Ro­man’s re­tire­ment from the po­lice force left me in shock. It feels like he’d been a cop for­ever. Did he ever do any­thing else for a liv­ing?

Les­lie via E-mail

A.You’re right, Les­lie! Ro­man has spent his en­tire ca­reer en­forc­ing the law in Salem. Of course, he wasn’t al­ways the top dog there. Prior to be­com­ing the po­lice com­mis­sioner, he’d been the deputy com­mis­sioner, the chief of po­lice and, when we first met him back in 1982 (when he was played by Wayne Northrop), a de­tec­tive as­signed to pro­tect Mar­lena from the Salem Stran­gler!

Q.On the June 26 episode, what was the song play­ing when GH’s Michael was with Nelle?

Ty Cook via E-mail

A.We did a bit of dig­ging to learn that the song play­ing un­der that scene in June was “What Is Love,” per­formed by Kat Kim.

Q.Is GH’s James Pa­trick Stu­art flu­ent in French in real life… or is he fak­ing it as Valentin? El­iz­a­beth Snid­man

Olivette, MO

A.When Stu­art was asked this ques­tion dur­ing the GH Fan Club Week­end, he ad­mit­ted that not only is he fak­ing it, but so is his on-screen daugh­ter, Scar­lett Fernandez (Char­lotte)! How­ever, both of them do have par­ents who speak the lan­guage flu­ently. Stu­art also stud­ied French in high school, so he says that he un­der­stands the lan­guage bet­ter than he speaks it — which comes in handy when he needs to trans­late for his lit­tle co-star. For the record, Stu­art doesn’t speak Greek, ei­ther!

Ro­man took his job of guard­ing Mar­lena’s body very, very se­ri­ously.
