As The World Turns Best Lines Thursday 12/3/09


Provided By Eva

Brad: I was just thinking how much I wish you could join me on the other side.

Henry: Wow. I'm flattered that you want to spend the rest of eternity in my presence.

Brad: Don't be, because what I'm really trying to say is I would like to kill you! How could you not tell me that Simon Frasier was back and hiding out in my house?!

Jack: I -- I am not looking for a place to stay. I just -- I didn't want to leave my bag in the car.

Parker: Right, because it's a very bad neighborhood.

Carly: Parker, stop it.

Parker: If -- if you left Janet, then why can't you stay here? This is his home.

Jack: No, it's not my home anymore, Parker.

Carly: Yes, now. So, did you really leave Janet?

Jack: I did.

Carly: Just got back. What happened?

Jack: Basically, she's upset. She feels like I abandoned her when I left.

Carly: You did abandon her. I mean, I know you had your reasons, but I'm not gonna lie to you and make you feel better.

Jack: And I don't want to do that to Janet, either. I can't pretend that I don't feel responsible for my brother's death, and I can't make it seem like it's okay to ask liberty to live in the same house as me. So we both decided it would be best if we took a step back from everything, including each other.

Carly: Oh, that is such a crock. Janet just wants you, jack. So if you're doing this for her, you should grab your bag and go on back home, right now.

Jack: You think I wanted to leave, to walk out on my marriage. Carly, it's the last thing I want.

Carly: But that's exactly what you're doing.

Jack: Because I can't be who Janet wants me to be right now.

Carly: Janet just wants you to be you. She loves you.

Jack: Yes. Her daughter hates me, however. Liberty blames me for her father's death. This morning, I come downstairs, and there liberty is, and -- [Stammers] I could tell what it took for her to just look at me.

Carly: You can't let Liberty's feelings dictate what happens in your marriage.

Jack: So what am I supposed to do, sit her down and force her to deal with me?

Carly: Yes.

[Jack groans]

Carly: You're the adult. You need to set the example.

Jack: I'm just trying to give everybody space to deal with what's happened.

Carly: Really? 'Cause I think you found a way to give yourself an out. You can't forgive yourself, so how could you ask Janet or liberty or anybody else to?

Jack: You know what? I don't want to talk about this anymore.

Carly: You're not gonna run away again, are you?

Jack: No.

Carly: Janet may be hurt. She may be confused and upset. But at least she's sticking by you. At least she's trying to work this through.

Jack: I've just got to get my footing, figure out where I am before I let anybody else in on this.

Carly: Well, you can try to get your footing someplace else, jack, 'cause you're not gonna do it here.
