    Happiness Is Infinite.

    Thursday, August 18 2011
    Amanda predicts good things, Cara decides to leave town, and David taunts Greenlee.

    David overhears Cara booking an airline ticket at the hospital. He says he never figured her for one who ran from a fight. He recalls how she fought cancer for the second time when he met her. It was like she was standing up to death. He thinks Griffin is a brilliant doctor, but he will only go so far. Cara calls it ethics. David thinks they should use everything at their disposal to help others.

    At the hospital, Amanda tells Jake good things are happening to the people in Pine Valley and it's only the beginning. As she talks about Dixie coming back to Tad, Cara walks in. Amanda and Jake grow quiet, but Cara says she's happy for Dixie and Tad. Amanda asks for a couple of minutes alone. Jake and Cara head to the hallway. Cara tells Jake she sees Tad looking at Dixie the way he looks at Amanda. She knows what happiness looks like and she won't settle for anything less wherever she ends up. Jake knows she's saying goodbye. Jake returns to Amanda, who knows Cara will be fine. She says happiness is infinite and they will all find that out soon. Jake leaves when Amanda falls asleep. He literally runs into a nurse who is giving Cara's files to another doctor.

    In the park, Dixie and Tad declare their love for each other. Dixie says he's what kept her going all those years she was alone. They vow, "Together forever," and kiss. Tad pulls back and tells her what will happen to Cara if they break up. Dixie thinks it's wonderful that Tad married Cara to save her life, adding their kiss has to be their last so they don't put Cara in danger. She also needs to spend time with Kathy and JR to make things right for them.

    Tad brings Dixie back to the house. Kathy greets them, wondering if Cara is there because it's time for her band-aid to come off. Dixie helps her daughter instead. Kathy asks if she is going to leave again. Dixie promises she will never leave again, but she has to stay with JR for awhile. Kathy embraces her mother.

    Tad tracks Cara down at the hospital. Cara says, "So, you're in love with Dixie." Tad quietly confirms. He won't just walk away from their marriage though. He will get her her green card. Cara isn't sure she can watch him with Dixie. She wants more than that. She says Dixie damn well better be good to him and leaves.

    Dixie naps on the couch at Tad's house and dreams of David treating her. He tells her he has the power to save lives and take them away. Tad wakes her up but she doesn’t tell him about her dream. She leaves the room as Tad takes off his wedding ring. Jake stops by looking for Cara. He thinks she's skipping town.

    At Kendall's, Griffin wonders what Zach remembers about the crash. Kendall says he didn't recall much. She begins to tell him how much he means to her, but Griffin doesn't want to hear the "It's better to have loved and lost" speech. He leaves. Kendall grabs her bag and starts to head out as well, but Ryan shows up. He tells her Ricky is dead. Kendall thinks this gives them closure, but Ryan thinks Ricky was killed for what he knew about Zach's plane crash. Kendall doesn’t want him to tell Zach about this.

    In Zach's hospital room, Greenlee explains Kendall and Griffin's history and tells him about Ricky. Jesse shows up and Greenlee leaves. Jesse tells Zach about Ricky's death and then asks what he remembers about the crash. Zach doesn't tell Jesse anything, but worries if someone else is out there, Kendall could be in danger. Kendall arrives as Jesse leaves in frustration. Zach brings up Ricky with Kendall. He won't let what he did to her and their kids slide. Kendall doesn't want him to go after anyone and get himself killed for real this time. After she gets riled up, Zach tells her to close the door because he has something to tell her that she won't like.

    Greenlee stops by David's room to ask what he wants with Zach. He just wants to be known for doing something good. He taunts her about Gillian and wonders if Ryan might like to see the love of his life again. Greenlee doesn't think he has Gillian and insists she and Ryan are on solid ground. David sees through her, noting her insecurity. As Greenlee leaves, David says to tell Ryan an old friend says hello.

    Cara heads to ConFusion and drinks to leaving Pine Valley. David finds her and suggests they talk about her future.

    Tomorrow's Pine Valley spoilers for All My Children:

    JR says he's giving up booze.

    Zach confronts Griffin.

    Greenlee talks to Kendall about Leo.

    Is it just me but can we clean Zach up love the long hair but could he get shaved, I guess he has a valid reason to be in David's corner as David saved his life & maybe he remembers David saved his son & Kendall. Ryan maybe Rick was killed for what he knows but you won't find out what happened you believed Rick was a reverend so how smart are you(Stupid, Stupid)We are moving kind of slow if these story lines are going to end( Move it, Move it Move it along please)

    Ryan&david get your heads out of wherever you have them. David doesn't legally own the hospital. Why not start there& take it from him. Da**it cara you're a doctor, get a room. I know you can afford one. By the way you left jake not the other way around.

    It looks like zack's tan was darker in that windowless facillity than in the hospital. Maybe david found out the secret formula for george hamilton's tanning lotion. George is getting angry!!!

    No, Cherryberry, it's not just you - Zach could use a haircut and definitely needs to shave.

    What hope is there Ryan might actually grow a few active brain cells? (Probably not much.)

    blah blah blah blah blah blah blah....

    Being dead did not change Zach. He is still a prick, IMHO.

    Excuse me Cara, Jake did NOT break YOUR heart. You broke his. Honestly, I hate it when everyone thinks she is a damn saint or something.

    And when it comes to David, it is SSDD....

    Posted by jumps at Thursday, August 18 2011 12:46 PM

    I totally agree...someone please buy Zach a razor!!!!

    Amanda is recovering from radical surgery and yet cara feels the need to remind her yet again that she was married to jake. Opal's foot-in-mouth disease is just that. Cara's is insensitivity & jealousy.

    I was thinking like other people that Zack when he woke up in the hospital, called his connections and put Rev Ricky in a coffin.
    but doesn't Ryan have connections to Cambrias, wasn't ryan the one who received a story notebook from zack father which upset ryan? Ryan is into everyones business stiring up trouble making clear waters cloudy. and at all times making david the number one fall guy. Is Ryan the bad one in pine valley? he has done a great job of letting people think he is one of the good guys but is he? Con artist isn't it in some cases illegal?

    David sure knows greenlee very well and which buttons to push.

    zack you remind me of greenlee when she first came back to town after she was dead. trying to fill in the gaps in both your memories and both jealous of people moving on without either of you.
    greenlee aren't you going to clue in zack that david helped griffen save kendell in the ambulance.
    got to agree with everyone, zack you are as hairy as mountain man use to be before he cleaned up.
    got to end and get to work.
