The Day's Dumbest Dialogue
Jake: Ryan has had an aneurysm. It's in the same spot in his brain that he was shot a few years ago.
Why has ANOTHER All My Children writing regime decided to give Ryan a brain injury in order to extricate him from his latest victim love interest and to facilitate a reunion with the woman they have decided, at the moment, is the greatest love of his life? I mean, I already know that the answer to this question is "because everybody who writes for this show is creatively bankrupt and horribly lame" (it's also the answer to the related question, "Why is this show going full throttle in making Angie and Jake so completely awful?"), but come on! The majority of this show is so deadly dull that I have been forced to bribe myself to watch entire episodes, and they expect me to sit through this, again, some more? This is just kicking me while I'm down.
I am trying to figure out if I am so irked because this has been done to death (you know what's less entertaining than a retread? A retread of a retread!) or because I am fed up with the prospect of Ryan dying or being comatose and ushered off camera for a year being repeatedly dangled in my face and then cruelly snatched away...
