    Want To Go Outside And Kick A Squirrel?

    Thursday, April 01 2010
    Carly gets frustrated, Kim gets disappointed and Chris tries to put a party together.

    Janet is getting frustrated at Carly's because Jack and Carly are doing everything for her. She goes upstairs to see her daughter. "Want to go outside and kick a squirrel?" Jack asks Carly. She admits that she's frustrated. He asks her out on a date. She runs upstairs to dress. A letter is delivered to Jack. He opens it and stares. Carly comes back down. He explains that he just received his divorce papers. Soon, he'll be a free man. "Isn't that what you want?" she asks. Janet comes in. Everything is awkward. Carly stares off and then walks out. Jack chases after her and apologizes. "I don't want to hear how sorry you are," she says. He turns back to Janet. She thought vows were meant to be permanent. He says she has a new future and deserves the best. She gets a call from Reid informing her that there has been no change with Dusty. She worries that she doesn't have a future after all. Jack promises that he'll never stop looking out for her. Janet wonders how Carly will feel about that. They bicker about whether the baby was a mistake. He insists that he's looking forward to the baby and divorce won't change his commitment.

    At Monte Carlo, Gabriel is searching around before he hides in the corner as Ellis and Craig come in. Craig spots him. "Who the hell are you?" he demands. Gabriel explains that he works there and Carly hired him. Ellis leaves. Craig tells Gabriel he doesn't like snoops. They bicker and Craig says he's not allowed in alone. Carly arrives and Craig wishes she'd talked to him before hiring someone. After Craig walks off, Carly asks Gabriel to look at her new designs. He diplomatically says they're boring. She flips through them and says he's right. When she talks about her investor, he wonders if he's actually seen her stuff and liked it. She admits that Craig does all of the talking to the investor. She calls his office and soon discovers that he isn't backing her after all. Craig runs back in and babbles about work. She glares and then yells at him for lying to her. He tries making excuses and then explains that he's the sole investor. They argue about her designs. She refuses to trust him and walks out. Craig fires Gabriel.

    Bob and Kim are at the Lakeview toasting to 25 years. "We're not old: We're classy," he tells her. Dr. Oliver arrives. Kim excuses himself and Reid tells Bob that he's being sued for malpractice. Reid doesn't want to cause problems for the hospital so he offers to go on leave. Bob won't hear of it and says that no one can threaten his doctors.

    Kim goes up to see Barbara and complain that her anniversary doesn't seem all that exciting so far.

    Kim goes down to see Bob and he tells her how important it is to have Reid around. He wants to leave Memorial a better place than it was. Kim worries that he'll be working too hard but he says this is his last big achievement. Barbara comes in and congratulates them. Kim hands Bob a photo of the cabin. She explains that she's had it renovated and she's cleared his schedule so they can move in. He tells her it will have to wait a few weeks. She's disappointed and feels like they're never going to get there. She feels like he cares more about his job than romance. Kim challenges him to prove that she comes first... at least for a few days.

    Chris is at WOAK with Katie. He tells her that he's in charge of decorating for his parent's anniversary and asks for her help. Her also asks if she has any ideas for a gift. She gets depressed as she remembers a gift Brad gave her. They talk about love and he assures her she'll find it again. Tom calls him and asks him to get their parents over to his house. They decide to enlist Reid to do that.

    Katie and Chris find Reid at the hospital and talk him into getting Bob to Tom's.

    Carly goes home and asks Jack for a hug. He has to drive Janet to the hospital. They leave her alone and Carly begins ranting at herself until Gabriel shows up and explains that he was fired. She re-hires him and asks him to keep his eyes on Craig. After he leaves, she sketches for awhile and Jack returns. He explains that the divorce papers have been filed. He suggests they make out on the couch.

    Chris, Katie and Barbara are finishing the decorations for the anniversary. Barbara complains about the tackiness. Chris tries to stay positive.

    Back at Monte Carlo, Gabriel eavesdrops on Craig telling Ellis everything that happened.

    Next on As The World Turns:

    Casey and Chris argue about Alison.

    Katie talks Ali into going to the party.

    Barbara and Henry spend some time together.

    Bob arrives at the party alone.

    I am sick of the Janet storylines. First it is needy LIberty with her cancer, dragging Jack back to Janet. Getting Janbet pregnant to save Liberty, yada yada yada. Now it is Dusty and stomach cramps making needy Janet pulling Jack back everytime. Over and over again. How long is this going to drag out? Will Carly and Jack ever be together before the series end?

    I hear you, abc66soap! They will do anything to keep Jack and Carly apart, but I'll bet any amount of money that they are together at the end.

    Had a good chuckle out of Jacks comment to Carley "want to go outside & kick a squirrel" I wish Carley would quit being everyones door matt. I too am tired of Janet & her needs. Someone ought to sit her down & tell her that the world does not revolve around just her & her daughter. Know that this is just a soap but I know people who act like that in real life & it sure does get annonying!!! OMO

    Janet take Liberty and move into your own place. Jeepers give Carly a break. Dusty wake up so Jack can tell you your Father-in-Law to be and Uncle Ralphie was the ones that had you shot. With the way Teri was acting, I am sure she was aware of what was going on. Between Janet being needy and Lily whiny, I don't know which is worst.

    Kudos to Maury West and Michael Parks (Carly and Jack) they keep this fan watching.

    I am sick of Jack catering to Janet's every whim. Good grief, he doesn't have to be at her side all the time, just because she is pregnant. Carly needs to tell him to get his act together. How dare Jack act so upset at signing those darned divorce papers, right in front of Carly. Janet is getting on my last nerve. This SL needs to be wrapped up. There are more actors on the show. I hope Dusty wakes up and takes Janet and Liberty to that new house, and away from Jack and Carly. Jack acts as if he is dimwitted. No more Janet for awhile....please!!!
