Guza Answers...
Short term guest stars for medical mysteries? Go or Drop?
"We are going to do more of this." Scott's in BUT he's long-term. He's going to be prominent in the NY. He says if the viewers/readers have ideas to send them in, there's a lot of great former soap stars out there.
Casting...
Kimberly M. and Jason T. (Patrick/Robin) have re-upped. Thompson notes "we [him and Kimber] discussed what it means for her, what it means for me and what it means for us together. Jill and Bob made it very evident they wanted us to stay and that amde me feel very confortable. That doesn't come around very often." He notes Kimberly is happy too.
2010 Previews...The Doctors ...
Lisa is Patrick's equivalent. She has shown no designs for him...yet. Robin will find herself in the middle, not quite sure how to feel AND Matt is available as he happily points out. "This story has the potential to turn quite twisted."

JT's Interview “Playing Doctor”
Jason Thompson “scrubs” in fan an extended Stay as Patrick!

What do you call a tall, hot brain surgeon with dimples, a sense of humor and fierce loyalty to the woman he loves?

Answer: a catch! And that certainly is what GENERAL HOSPITAL’s Dr. Patrick Drake is. The lucky lady who snared him is his bride of just a year, Robin.

Since they tied the knot last December, they’ve faced every test imaginable for a young couple…and their marriage has survived! “They’ve really stretched their relationship in a short amount of time, but it’s brought them closer,” says his portrayer, Jason Thompson. “I think that’s what keeps our fans coming back. Robin and Patrick are tested, they work it out, and they come out the other end…so far. You never know, because at the end of the day, it is a soap.”

Love Conquers All
Bite your tongue at the mere suggestion of marital discord, Mr. Thompson! Then again, Patrick’s college gal pal, Lisa, has invaded the hospital, causing Scrubs fans to worry that their favorite TV-doctors will have yet another problem to work through. “It’s a past relationship that’s coming back, and that’s a little bit scary,” Thompson admits. “I don’t know how it’s going to end or what’s going to happen. [The Powers that be] have ideas of where it could go, but they’re not going to set anything in stone. Patrick and Robin have already been through some things that can make or break you.

They’ve been together for quite awhile, so at some point, they’ll be tested once again. But they’re pretty strong right now. It’ll be interesting to see what, if anything, can come between them. As a young, professional family, you go through things. I hope people can look at them and realize that if they got through it, they can, too.”

Staying Power
The good news is that Thompson just re-signed a contract to stay on the show. The decision wasn’t really a hard one, as Thompson leads with his heart and his heart undoubtedly belongs to GH. “There’s so much more to explore,” the actor says. “We haven’t explored at all where his brother, Matt, comes from how he dealt with not having a dad, and who his mother was. Once our father left, we just went along our way and did the hospital thing. We argued here and there, but they never really dealt with that family stuff. Even now, there’s a lot more opportunity there to show the relationship.”

There’s also a new chief of staff, a position that Patrick once held. Animosity and resentment can’t help but surface, especially when Patrick learns that nepotism may have gotten Dr. Steve the job! “Patrick still has an ego, “ Thompson explains, “We’re going to try to find ways to bring that out a little bit, to go back to that because he still is that man.”

Love and Learn
Whether it be the realism of an AIDS or post-partum depression storyline or the lightheartedness of karaoke night at Jake’s. Thompson enjoys how Patrick can bounce around in both worlds. The only challenge is the moat unintentionally drawn around Patrick and Robin that has them sometimes standing alone. “When we have a sotryline, it’s really just us, Thompson points out. “If there’s a Mob storyline, there are always 10 people involved. It’s a little more difficult to have a storyline when you don’t have a lot of the other cast members, because if you’re not really a fan of Patrick and Robin, you’re not going to watch our story.”
Blending in Patrick and Robin with other characters has other benefits too. “I think I’m in a great position to learn a lot from the people on the show,” Thompson enthuses. “I still want to get much better than I am right now. I’m hoping that we can maybe do something with the fact that Dominic was Sonny’s son. I would love to work with Maurice Benard (Sonny). I’ve learned a lot from Kimberly McCullough (Robin) the last couple years. Working with people like her and Tony Geary (Luke) and Steve Burton (Jason), all those people that who been around a long time…there’s a a lot to learn there. That’s one of the benefits of having a storyline with those kinds of people. That’s the bonus.”-Rosemary A. Rossi

FYI FYI
Birth Name: Jason Craig Thompson
Birthday: November 20
Birthplace: St. Albert, Alberta, Canada
Did you Know? Thompson has taken up boxing and has joined Maurice Benard (Sonny) in the ring.
Help Wanted:Among the jobs Thompson has had through the years-including asphalt maker and ice painter for skating rinks-the hardest was laoding trucks from 2 a.m. to 11 a.m. in the middle of winter in Canada. "It was freezing cold, and it kinda sucked." Thompson laughs. "But I'm glad that I've done those thing and I haven't just known acting."

Patrick & Matt from last year:
...On Patrick's Brother Matt: "He hasn't kissed a girl in a year and half! That never happens on a soap."

Jason & Kimberly McCullough at the PA in NY & NY back in October:
...On Whether Robin & Patrick can Stay Happy: "I don't know," Thompson muses. "On a soap, if you're not falling in love, then you're breaking up, and we've kind of been in the middle for a long time now."

pg. 65

Pic: Scott Reeves as Dr. Steve Webber first day:
...On Clashing with Steve: "At the end of the day, Patrick is still that cocky guy who wants to be the best at everything, and he wants to be Cheif of staff," Thompson says. "It's bee interesting to have the new authority in his life. He doesn't deall well with that."

Patrick at Jake's for the 1st Karaoke Night singing "Time of My Life" with KMC it just him:

...On Karaoke night at Jake's: "There's only so much I can say no to when the producer says it's in the script," Thompson laughs, "I was really nervous the first time. The second time it wasn't as bad."

Up Close & Personal!
KMc talks about her pink space outfit & how she did not think it was sexy & it was not something she would wear for her man.
She didn't want JT to see it cause she didn't think he would think it was sexy. So he ran down the hall to see it and didn't think too much of it, but said "hanging on the rack it was not sexy, but when she came out, Kimberly could wear a paper bag & be sexy"

Sneak Peeks
Can't Miss: Monday, Dec. 28 - Robin and Patrick celebrate their first anniversary.

Pretty Reliable
JustBored:
Happy Holidays!
I have nothing new on Scrubs. Their story does not seem to be moving to quickly as yet. One thing to expand on from DD. Lisa witnesses Jason acting out while Sam is missing. Robin defends him to her. Lisa goes to Patrick and tries to sow the seed of doubt about Robin and Jason. As far as I know it does not work.
I know you said you have nothing new but wanted to ask if anything changed and if Patrick is still pushing Lisa away? The new spoilers came out and kind of took the wind out of my sails.
Nothing has changed as far as I know just that the story is not moving as quickly as I expected. I have heard nothing about Patrick returning Lisa's advances. He is all about Robin and Emma.
Just Bored...Thank you for your info.
Do you have any idea how Lisa tries to manipulate Patrick on the 7th?

I don't get alot of dates but the timing on that would work on her telling Patrick that Robin still has a thing for Jason.
Just Bored, do you know how long Robin and Emma are supposed to be staying in London for and are there a lot of scenes between Patrick and NuLisa before she gets back?
I don't know. I did not know that Robin and Emma were going to London.
Just Bored...
Will Lisa continue to bring up "the good old days" to Patrick? The spoilers seem to indicate that might happen.

I believe so. Lisa wants him to doubt his decison to be a family man.
I am assuming from your other answers that it does not work.
Nope. Patrick is happy with his choices.
Any idea what Patrick's somber reminder of his past is? And do you know how far out they have taped?
Happy Holidays to you. Hope you have a good one.
I think that they have taped the third week of Jan but I am not postive. They may be a little further along than that. They are at least finished week 3 though.
I have not heard about a somber reminder of Patrick's past. I am sort of confused about this one. It doesn't track with the rest of what I have since Lisa is trying to tempt him away from his family.
As always, there are things that I don't know. The London thing was a surprise as is the sober reminder thing. Although sometimes things are spoiled to be bigger than they are and if the reminder is one of those things it could have just slipped by me.

Are those Robin's pills in Lisa's hands?

Do you know if robin finds out about patrick moving Lisa's furniture?
Robin doesnt find out in January-- as far out as my info goes. But she's also not around when it happens, so she could later find out-- I dont know

12/23
lisa is off her rocking chair
spoiled one

12/25
Lisa dreams of a life with Patrick and Emma, without Robin around.
Lisa plans to use Sonny to get to know more about Robin's past.
Lisa saves Michael's life to gain Sonny's trust.

12/26
Does anyone think Maxim Lisa is really going to be sharing scenes w/ Sonny?
If the rumor I heard that she is Fron's new "It" girl I think all the big Boys will have scenes with her.That will be good for Scrubs in a sense because she will have little to do with them but I also think it means they will have nothing on screen

girl, juneau it's true... December 28, 2009 at 12:23 PM  

has anyone bandied about an amnesia scenario for scrubs? i l-o-v-e them to death but i think a robin-gets-amnesia storyline would be pretty rad. of course they'd end up together in the end, but would be fun to go back to their pre-domestic bliss days for a bit.

THANK YOU....THANK YOU....THANK YOU

Today's First Anniversary of Patrick and Robin made me forget that they never got a "honeymoon" or happy first 5 months of their marriage (PPD) or a good love/sex scene since marriage.

I commend the writers and Ms. Phelps and Mr. Guza and Mr. Frons for allowing the fans of Patrick and Robin to get some satisfaction.

Today's episode was the first one that I truly liked since the Scrubs "second" wedding day.

Patrick & Robin are pure MAGIC....and they EXPLODE...when they are together!! (All you have to do is check out the blogs...within mins that was all that chatter.)

I want to see them battle their future together....as a happy, satisfied family. The long time fans of GH - will always hold Robin and her love as precious. Bring on Lisa....she doesn't have the power to break up this SUPERCOUPLE.

I ask for MORE.....

MORE AIRTIME FOR PATRICK & ROBIN
MORE AIRTIME FOR EMMA
MORE LOVE IN THE AFTERNOON
MORE, PLEASE!!

k December 28, 2009 at 3:40 PM  

We got Love in the Afternoon today!!! Keep it up!!!

drhottir/robin December 28, 2009 at 6:53 PM  

I SO LOVED THE SCRUBS TODAY. IT WAS THE BEST EVER SINCE THEIR FIRST LOVE SCENE. IT WAS MOST DEFINITELY WORTH THE WATCH AND DVR.

I LOVE THE END WITH EMMA. A BEAUTIFUL ENDING TO A PERFECT SCRUBS TODAY.

WRITERS YOU DID AN EXCELLENT JOB WITH PATRICK AND ROBIN. KIMBERLY AND JASON HAS AN UNBELIEVABLE CHEMISTRY TOGETHER AS ACTORS. I SEE WHY THE WAS VOTED IN THE TOP OF THE POLLS FOR BEST COUPLE OF THE PAST DECADE.

WE NEED MORE OF THEM WITH STORYLINES OF MORE ACTORS AROUND THEM, SOMETHING LIKE THE Mob PEOPLE GET.
