The Day's Dumbest Dialogue

Apparently, insanity isn't the only thing that runs in the Montgomery family, as both father and daughter have demonstrated an enormous capacity for drama-queenosity.

Jack: They finally succeeded. They finally succeeded in running my daughter out of town. J.R. And Zach, Kendall, even -- all of them. I can never forgive them for that.

What's this "finally"? I don't think that word means what Jackson thinks it means. Greenlee's only been back in Pine Valley since the end of April. That's hardly, like, years worth of persecution at the hands of the evil people in town. Especially when one considers that, since she's been back in town, Greenlee has attempted to break up Ryan's marriage and had him arrested for bigamy (not like I care, but still...); tried to sue for custody of Spike; kidnapped Spike; caused Spike to go deaf; repeatedly got all up in the business of the Hart/Slater/Lavery/Novak amalgamated family even when they insisted they wanted her to stay far away, lest she maim any more of their kin; etc. She's lucky she wasn't run out of town with a pitchfork in the middle of June, or, you know, beaten to death by one of the Kane women who, despite their diminutive stature, obviously know how to throw down.

And "they finally succeeded in running my daughter out of town"? Your daughter is currently ON THE LAM after ESCAPING DURING HER ARRAIGNMENT. That's not being run out of town by an angry mob! That's running away just because her foxy yet increasingly obnoxious boyfriend thought it's better than being punished for something that she actually did*!

Ugh. Suck it, Jack. Just...suck it.

*Granted, it's not what she was currently being accused of, but still! She did it before!

You know, I'm worried about how you hold in your feelings. Let it out, Mallory. C'mon, don't be shy, say what you really think.

"...Greenlee has attempted to break up Ryan's marriage and had him arrested for bigamy (not like I care, but still...); tried to sue for custody of Spike; kidnapped Spike; caused Spike to go deaf; repeatedly got all up in the business of the Hart/Slater/Lavery/Novak amalgamated family even when they insisted they wanted her to stay far away, lest she maim any more of their kin; etc..."

But she's really, really, REALLY sorry. Doesn't that count for anything?

But yeah, if they're trying to make people feel sorry for Greenlee, they've got one hell of a hill to climb. I don't even like Kendall, Zach & Co. and their endless whining and holier-than-thouness, but even I had to say 'way to go!' when they all decided (seperately, of course) to nail the wicked witch to the wall.

I like Greenlee and I adore Aidan. This is sort of a stupid storyline, but I'm just enjoying the soapy goodness of Greenlee and Kendall at odds and Greenlee hiding out while her unbelievably gorgeous boyfriend tries to save her. And I think it's nice that Jack is finally acting like a supportive father.

Poor Walt Willey, run over by the Greenlee redemption bus.Jackson was always sanctimonious, but all this angst over the baby maiming bitch? Feh.Sorry about those tire tracks on your back, Walt.

Sabine Singh needs to look into a career in mime. Can't you just see her doing the 'trapped in box' schtick while in white face and a little bow tie? She has my vote as most irritating performer of the decade.Pairing her with CamMat's Ryan could case a rip in the time/space continuum.

Aiden Turner is also made for mute.So pretty, and yet so, so very bad.

I love how Jack can never forgive all these people who are doing terrible, horrible things to Greenlee (you know, like being mean to her and framing her for a crime she actually committed), yet he was all about forgiveness when it was Greenlee who kidnapped and maimed a baby. Think about how mad you are right now, Jack, all because people are being mean to your kid. Now, imagine that someone took her someplace against her will. Imagine that, in the process, this person accidentally drove her over a cliff, nearly killing her and causing her to permanently lose her hearing. Now imagine the perpetrator of this heinous act escaping any legal consequences and stalking Greenlee and her family until they finally agreed to forgive and forget. That would be horrible, right? Wouldn't it piss you off and make you want that person to go away forever?

Also, two months ago, Jack spent all of his free time trying to convince Greenlee to leave town. So he really needs to shut up now.
