net's promo for jack
gives insight into his character. Introduction
to SOAP NET's "DAYS Decathlon,"
Jack Deveraux episode.
Jack's strongest traight is his ability is to
look an impossibility in the
face and go on anyway. He "dreams the impossible
dream" and that is that he can achieve
anything he wants inspite of all odds. But his
biggest weakness is that he becomes tunnel visioned,
he misses the big picture, because he is so
focused on getting exactly what he wants. But
he still is underneath that preppy kid who wants
to achieve and succeed. And I think that's a
lot like life.

Missy and Matt give their take on Jack and Jennifer's
romance and love.
Jennifer and Jack are so human.
And we're just real people.
We are by no means heroic.
We fight, we cry, we're completely
immature most of the time.
They're not affraid to show their weaknesses
and their emotions to each other.
