    Are You Out Of Your Mind?

    Friday, March 05 2010
    Dusty proposes, Janet lets Jack go and then gets some news that could change things again.


    Liberty and Parker are talking over the computer by videofeed. She feels like she's 'the bubble girl'. She doesn't think it's a good idea for him to come and see her and suggests he get a healthy girlfriend instead. He doesn't like that idea.



    At the farm house, Janet asks Teri what she would do in her shoes. Teri says she doesn't have the same religious beliefs to contend with. She wonders what will happen between her sister and Dusty. Janet is sure she's already lost him. They argue about what Janet deserves to have in her life. Janet blames all of her daughter's misery on herself. Dusty arrives. Teri offers to leave but Janet makes her stay. Dusty drops on his knee and unveils a ring. "Are you out of your mind? Get away from me with that!" Janet blurts out. She yells that this is inappropriate. He tells her to let Jack be with Carly so they can be together. "You turned my life around and I want to do the same for you," he says. She faints.



    Jack goes to Carly's. She asks what he and Janet have decided. They haven't decided, he explains, though he makes it clear that he couldn't walk away from Janet and a baby. Carly wants him to put her first and put his promises to other people aside... since she doesn't think that will happen, she says she'll have to learn to live with this. They rehash the complexity of the situation and how unhappy they are with it. Parker comes in and tells them that Liberty isn't actually going to be happy to see him. After he leaves, Jack and Carly marvel about how well Parker turned out. Jack tells Carly that he can't ask her to commit to him while he's having a baby with another woman. They go into the kitchen and argue over their options again.



    In Craig's room, Ellis explains to Craig that Parker's trust fund is totally liquid now. He points out that what they are doing is illegal. Craig assures him that everything will be okay. Parker shows up, looking for his money. Craig hands him a debit card. Ellis makes himself scarce. Parker asks Craig to explain to his parents that he's accessed his fund and then leaves.



    Craig goes to Carly's and interrupts she and Jack to tell them that Parker has control of his trust fund again. They say they have no problem with that. Craig offers to keep an eye on the account. Jack leaves. She tells him the latest about the situation and he wonders why he still wants to be part of it. Craig tells her to drop Jack and just concentrate on work. She's sure Jack still loves her. "If he loves you, he wouldn't be having a child with someone else," he suggests.



    Parker arrives in Minneapolis to see Liberty. He's brought balloons and stuffed animals. He tells her that their parents seem to be cooking up another plan.


    Jack arrives at the farm house and finds Teri there. Dusty took Janet to the hospital after she fainted. She tells him to let Janet go if he doesn't really want to be with her. Liberty calls and begs him not to even dare thinking about having a baby. He tries talking her around but she tells him all of the reasons why this is a bad idea and claims she will refuse the transplant even if the baby is a match. She says that she will fight this on her own and win.


    Dusty is with Janet at the hospital. He tells her he wants to take care of her and her daughter. She admits that he is offering her everything she's ever wanted but she can't say 'yes'. Janet points out that they barely know each other. He still loves her. "I love you too," she finally admits... but she can't think about herself right now. Jack interrupts and asks to be alone with her. He informs Janet that he'd do anything for Liberty... except have a baby. "We haven't been a family for awhile," he says. She agrees that they shouldn't have a baby if they don't love each other. He says he'll always love her. She asks him to stop lying so they can get an annulment and he can be free. Jack promises to do whatever he can for Liberty. As Jack walks out, he tells Dusty to take care of Janet. Dusty walks back in and Janet tells him what happened. "You've run out of excuses not to marry me," he says. The doctor comes in with some news. "Congratulations," he tells them.



    Back in Minneapolis, Liberty tells Parker that she could never allow a child to be born knowing that it wasn't wanted. Parker says it wouldn't be so bad for them to have a baby brother and begins joking about names they could give him. He opens gifts for her. They joke and laugh until she coughs. He decides to stop for the day. She's glad he came. They touch hands on the plastic barrier.



    Jack returns to Carly's and kicks Craig out. He tells her that he's not going to have the baby because he wants to be with her. His marriage is over and that means they can be together. They kiss. He knows he's given her plenty of reasons to doubt him, but he tells her that he will always be with her now. "We were put on this earth to be together lady," he says. She pulls off his jacket and they climb onto the couch.

    Absolutely ridiculous! We all know the baby is not Jack's. You mean to tell me that these four people cannot do the math to figure this out either.

    DUMB!

    This baby is Dusty's and writers please resolved this asap. No one wants nine months of guessing and if the adults could think they would realize it's Dusty. Jack and Janet just sleep together, maybe. It wasn't actually stated they did, but we know she did with Dusty. This soap is leaving in September and needs to move on with bringing closure to some of these stupid storylines. Dragging out this foursome is getting tiring and Janet on her religious belief's and actions has tried my patience. The marriage is over move on. Parker please realize Craig has stolen your money. Hopefully Ellis would put the money back, but that is asking too much for him to do the right thing.

    Yeah, hello??? I fully agree with the previous comment, doesn't Dusty wonder if the baby is his, after all he did sleep with her. Jack just slept with Janet so there is no way she can be pregnant with Jack's baby, how stupid is everyone to think that it is.

    Posted by jj1234 at Friday, March 05 2010 12:44 PM

    I'm hoping the writers don't think we are that stupid. Not even in soap land can you sleep with one guy on New Year's and another in March and not know who the daddy is! I can see if it were days apart or even a week but months?! She will either be 2 months pregnant or a couple of days. Please....even doctors in Oakdale should be able to tell the difference!

    I'm jumping right in to join the party.
    LORDY have mercy.....please tell me we're not going to be plagued with Janet and Liberty as the sun begins to set on Oakdale. Dusty deserves to be a real father under better conditions. All CBS Soaps ended the week with twisted and promiscuous sexual liaisons. What's up with that?

    I hate to rain on everyone's parade but Janet and Jack slept together right after new years... he came home, she said she'd done things she wasn't proud of. He said he wasn't ready to move home... she said to you still love me... they went upstairs and made love... sorry people but I'm pretty sure, I remember them in kinda make up, kinda sad sex just after new years. so.... it's odd that she didn't know she was pregnant for three months but... could be either

    Posted by north of the border at Friday, March 05 2010 01:13 PM

    sorry typo --- she said DO you still love me?... he said yes.

    He and Carly hadn't really found their way back to each other yet. He was still focusing on his marriage.

    They went up stairs... cause I remember thinking at the time... awfully close to the time with Dusty... I wonder if?

    oh please, come on now. How can janet sleep with Jack tow days ago and then she finds out she is pregnant and then have the nerves to call Jack to tell him she is pregnant. Even the baby on the breast will know that, that baby belongs to Dusty. These writes make us viewers look like we don't have any sense.I do hope that they do not draw this story line out because everybody knows that the baby is Dusty's.

    north of the border - Jack did try to sleep with Janet but she couldn't do it. I remember it very well. He first offered her wine in kitchen and she said no and ran upstairs to take a shower. He tried again while in the bedroom and she turned him down again and she sex would not help their marriage.
