Thumbs Up: When Henry Met James

Even if ATWT's James incites a minimum amount of mayhem during his latest stint in Oakdale, his interaction with Henry alone will have made the trip worthwhile.

The martini-swilling barkeep livened up James's humdrum return with his fresh, clever wit.  Henry was not afraid to wisecrack with the ex-con and kept his wry sense of humor while locked up in Stenbeck's lair.  When the faux royal challenged him to a game of gin rummy to win his freedom, Henry scoffed, "Why don't we play Go Fish, James?"

No one else would dare utter "pretty please" to a kidnapping, murderous freak like James with a straight face.
