“God, you’re not talking but I know you’re here, so I’m gonna talk and you can listen. God, I don’t wanna be empty inside anymore.”
Jack: Don’t tell me how I’m feeling, ok? I’m his son, too.
Shawn: Are you? When you were a little kid, did you sit next to him while he watched T.V all night long, hoping that he’d say something to you? Did you ever once clean up after him when he came home drunk? And when he didn’t come home at all, did you lay in bed thinking it was something you did that drove him away? And when he was gone, did you walk around and make believe that everything was ok when inside it was tearing you apart? Did you?
Jack: No…No, I didn’t get to do any of those things. See, I knew I had a father and he was gone from me my whole life.
Any and all “Jack moments” are favorite moments of mine. You all know how much I love Matt (and Joe & Andy ^_^) but that’s only part of the reason I love Jack so much. Shawn’s half-brother was such a great addition to the cast. He finally brought stability and true family love into Shawn’s life. I love Jack.
Some Jack moments that stand out to me were in the episodes when he and Shawn were dealing with Chet’s death (We’ll Have a Good Time Then and Getting Hitched). You really get to see what kind of person/brother/son Jack is— a wonderful one.
I’d have… to go… with… Cory. Wholesome, romantic, sensitive, loyal Cory is more the type of guy I’d go for over Shawn. Although at times Cory was infuriatingly selfish and immature, overall I think he was wonderful. Shawn was as well, but he’s a little too “bad boy” for me. I love them both so much =P
