General Hospital: August 15, 2002

By Garrett Godwin

The summer of 2002 was the summer of Jason and Elizabeth, known to their fan base as Liaison.

For three years, the audience has watch them become friends and confidants, always being there for one another, saving each other from death and themselves.

We saw Jason (Steve Burton) and Elizabeth (Rebecca Herbst) have their first kiss at her studio on June 4, 2002, where Elizabeth finally realized what-- and who -- she wanted in her life, and she wanted Jason.  It is known to fans as the "Studio Kiss", which was one of television's best kiss scene to readers of the Chicago Sun-Times this May.

What made August 15, 2002 also good on General Hospital was because of two reasons.  One, it was my birthday.  Two, it was when Jason and Elizabeth shared their second kiss at Vista Point.

But what truly made that episode great is because Elizabeth wanted to be with Jason so much, and Jason wanted to be with her despite his dangerous lifestyle.  However, Elizabeth was willing to take the risk and she expressed how she felt about Jason.  And as for Jason, he expressed his feelings for Elizabeth not through words, but through his actions, and boy he did!  He left Elizabeth-- and viewers -- something to think about.

What made Jason and Elizabeth great is that even though they never said "I love you" to each other, you can tell by the way they looked at each other not only is there friendship between them, but there is also love-- true love.

Catch Jason and Elizabeth on General Hospital on ABC and on SoapNet.
