Hello, Jocasta

Sometimes the present casts a peculiar light on the past.

In the 1987 romantic comedy Cross My Heart, Annette O'Toole delivers this line to Martin Short during a love scene between their characters:
"I don't like to mention another man in bed, but you're like Superman."
In 2006, Annette O'Toole plays Superman's mother on Smallville.

Well, she had played Lana Lang in Superman III in 1983...

You're absolutely correct, Tom. I had forgotten about that. (I wonder if that's where the line came from?)

So that's even more creepy. She played Supes's girlfriend. Then she played his mom.

At least it wasn't the other way around.

Yes and she's married to Superman's Dad who BTW is played by John Schneider. That's definitely not Eeewwwww! I recall when John had the character roll of Bo Duke on "The Dukes of Hazzard". He's come a long way baby and definitely aged well like a fine wine...

I wouldn't mind waking up each morning next to John Schneider (okay, I still hold a torch for Scott Bakula!). Can't I have them both?

Okay, I goofed and hit the wrong key! That last comment wasn't supposed to be anonymous, but then the reference to Scott Bakula would've given me away, right?
