(Luke and Holly have a confrontation when he returns to Port Charles and learns she’s now married to Robert; Blackie and Lou are relieved when Rose is legally named as Lou’s guardian.)

Jake: You obviously didn't hear what I said.

Lou: It doesn't matter, these judge types will do it to you every time.

Blackie: Yeah, she has a point, man. They sit up there and they act like they're better than us or something, you know? They said they're going to let Rose have her, but I wouldn't be surprised if she changes their mind.

Rose: Blackie, this paranoia of yours is completely unjustified.

Jake: She's right.

Blackie: Yeah, we'll see.

Lou: Yeah, if they end up putting you with some old rich lady, I'm telling you, Jake buddy, I'll be out of here running away again.

Jake: Like I said before, the agent from social services says it's all set up.

Blackie: Oh, and you really believe that?

Jake: Why shouldn't I?

Blackie: Obviously you've never had a run-in with one of these do-gooders.

Rose: He's about to, here she comes.

Jake: There's my golden opportunity to prove my point.

Mrs. Peterson: Good morning, Mr. Meyer.

Jake: We're all ready on this side.

Mrs. Peterson: Yes, I see, and I'm sorry.

Lou: Sorry about what?

Mrs. Peterson: There's been a change, Counselor, I can't go along with our former agreement.

Robert: You dressed early this morning.

Holly: I couldn't sleep.

Robert: I had a spot of trouble myself.

Holly: He'll show again, won't he?

Robert: At this point I'd say it's chancy.

Holly: If only I knew where he went! If I could just guess! You don't...?

Robert: What?

Holly: Oh, I don't know. Are you sure that he wouldn't do anything foolish?

Robert: No way.

Holly: [Sighs] Well, we can't just sit here and wait and guess.

Robert: You're right, not anymore.

Holly: So, what are we going to do?

Robert: It's not like him to just walk out and not want an explanation.

Holly: He already made up his own, which wasn't too far from the truth.

Robert: He must have known we all thought he was dead.

Holly: Yes, but his best friend and the woman he loved together? That must have been horrible for him.

Robert: He brought this on himself.

Holly: We don't know that yet.

Robert: Maybe you're right. But we do know something; that is we can't sit around here all day.

Holly: There's more people to tell. I mean, besides Bobbie and ruby.

Robert: We've got to find him first.

Holly: But, how?

Robert: It's been a day. This does call for drastic measures.

Holly: We can't send out a whole platoon of cops after him, that is going to make him more furious than he already is.

Robert: Maybe it will. But we can't have him roaming around the streets either to possibly disappear again.

Holly: No, he wouldn't do that.

Robert: Maybe he has already, holly. Look, something took him away before, maybe that same something has pushed him back into hiding again.

Holly: No way, not Luke. He--

Robert: Face up to it, holly.

Holly: If and when it happens, until then we have to find him. Now, there's no way we could do this ourselves.

Robert: Not easily. He could be anywhere.

Holly: But I won't have you sending the police after him!

Robert: All right, all right. I'll go down to the station myself and put out a quiet A.P.B. on him.

Holly: Quiet?

Robert: Yeah, hear me out.

Holly: Robert, you know what would happen if you put Luke in jail.

Robert: He'd resent it for the rest of his life. But I'm not suggesting that. This'll be an A.P.B. Simply to locate him. They'll be under strict instructions not to approach him in any way.

Holly: But I don't see what that would accomplish.

Robert: [Chuckles] Well, they'll find him, they'll tell me, and I'll go get him.

Holly: But, what if word gets out? Say if one of your cops has a big mouth.

Robert: I only talk to my closest men. I'll do it in person, that way it'll be kept off the computer. What's wrong?

Holly: We're hunting him down like some kind of animal!

Robert: You want a chance to explain all this, don't you?

Holly: That's just it! I don't know what I'll say when I do find him! It's just--I guess I need time to think about it, except more time he's out there on the street, the more I worry.

Robert: You'll know what to say.

Holly: Someone is going to get hurt.

Robert: Why do you say that?

Holly: Because out of the three of us, at least one of us is going to end up being hurt.

Robert: It doesn't have to be that way.

Holly: I don't see how it can't.

Robert: Well, anyway, we'll--we'll deal with that when the time comes.

Holly: Yes, I suppose. The first thing we have to do is find him.

Robert: And the second thing is to question him and find out what the hell has been going on.

Jake: We had an arrangement, Mrs. Peterson, will you please tell me what happened?

Blackie: What did I tell you? They're going to turn on us.

Rose: I just don't understand what made her change her mind.

Lou: I'll tell you what. It's like this whole big mess we're in. They tell you one thing to make you cooperate, then they stop you with something else when you're not looking. [Sighs] Oh, I wish we had some other lawyer. I don't know, someone with gray hair would look better, the judge would like it. You know what's going to happen? The judge is going to walk right in that door, look at old Jake and turn me right over to the social worker.

Rose: All right, all right, Lou, that's enough, that's enough.

Lou: But, don't you understand, Rose? It was too good to be true! It turns out like this every time, I know it.

Blackie: I know, but one second, I'll go back over there and find out what's going on, Rose.

Rose: You will not, you're going to stay right where you are.

Blackie: I'm not just going to stand here, I'm sorry.

Rose: Yes, you will!

Blackie: Look, I won't say anything. I'm just going to listen.

Rose: I'm not kidding, Blackie. You stay where you are.

Lou: Then I'll go, please.

Rose: No, you will stay as well, young lady, both of you, do you understand what I'm saying?

Blackie: Yeah, it's just like we're in kindergarten again or something. Uh-oh, there she comes!

Lou: She's looking for gray hair already.

Rose: Quiet, both of you! Okay, is there a problem?

Blackie: Yeah, what did she say?

Lou: Come on, tell us.

Jake: We'll find out in a minute. Sit down.

[Gavel pounding]

Judge: Where's the file for this case? It's supposed to be here at the bench. Thank you. Louisa Swenson, is that correct?

Jake: That's right, your honor.

Judge: Is she present?

Jake: Yes, she is.

Judge: Where? Will she stand?

Lou: Yes, your judgeship.

Judge: You are Louisa Swenson?

Lou: Yes.

Judge: That's "your honor."

Lou: Your honor, yes, thank you.

Judge: You may be seated. According to this, all parties have reached an agreement. The child is to be put under custody of a Rose Kelly?

Jake: That's right, your honor.

Judge: I know.

Mrs. Peterson: Your honor, I'm sorry. The file is mistaken. We have not reached an agreement.

[Doorbell rings]

Holly: Robert, did you forget something?

Luke: Surprise, surprise. Not your husband, just me.

Holly: Luke.

Luke: I'm flattered you remembered. Can I come in?

Holly: Why did you run away? Why didn't you let me explain?

Luke: What's to explain? Certainly not this. Nice house! Nice clothes! You look fine. I guess you're lucky that I dropped out of the picture. You married very well.

Holly: You don't understand, I--

Luke: I think I do. Somewhere along the line, you decided I could never give you all of this and you grabbed the first opportunity you could to take the life you'd always planned for yourself.

Holly: That's not true.

Luke: Isn't it?

Holly: No, how dare you say that to me?

Luke: Well, I call them as I see them, baby.

Holly: You don't see anything! All you see is your own blind jealousy, your own selfishness.

Luke: Selfish, yes, I am selfish. I admit it. I've been living for months with a very selfish idea. The idea of seeing you again. So, I got what I wanted, didn't I? I see you now. I see you very clearly. You never cared for me really.

Holly: You're wrong. I gave up everything for you. And when I heard you were dead, I wanted to die too.

Luke: Well, luckily, you got over it.

Holly: Listen to me, dammit!

Luke: I'm listening.

Holly: I was alone. I was about to be deported. And I was pregnant. Pregnant with your child. "(

Luke: The baby?

Holly: I lost it, Luke.

Luke: Why didn't you tell me you were pregnant?

Holly: I didn't know until after you ran off. And then we got the news.

Luke: That I was dead?

Holly: I told you in my dreams and in my prayers. I would tell you every time I was alone. That baby was the last link I had to you.

Luke: How did it happen?

Holly: Miscarriage.

Luke: Because you were upset about me?

Holly: Partly because of that, it was just--it was an accident.

Luke: An accident? What kind of accident? Holly, what kind of accident?

Holly: I was lifting something heavy when I should have been relaxing.

Luke: Why?

Holly: Does it really matter?

Luke: Yes, it matters, that was my child!

Holly: It was my child too!

Luke: So, why were you lifting something that you shouldn't have been lifting?

Holly: I just did! These things happen, I was... there was nothing to do, I was alone all day. I had to do something or else I would have gone crazy.

Luke: What did you lift?

Holly: Oh, you don't give up, do you?

Luke: What did you lift?

Holly: All right, this!

Luke: That?

Holly: Yes.

Luke: That can't weigh more than five pounds!

Holly: Probably not.

Luke: Well, why were you lifting it?

Holly: I was trying to put the house in order.

Luke: This house? Yours and...

Holly: Yes.

Luke: So, you were putting Robert's house in order?

Holly: We'd just moved in.

Luke: So, what was this? Some kind of housewarming present?

Holly: Not exactly.

Luke: Well, where did it come from? I've never seen this before.

Holly: It was a gift for Robert.

Luke: From you? I see. So, you were putting Robert's house in order and you were moving furniture around, tables, chairs, sofas. What, did he ask you to move the mattress upstairs too?

Holly: That's not fair!

Luke: Not fair? You lost my child because you were putting Robert's house in order?

Holly: You are jumping to conclusions.

Luke: Am I?

Holly: You're trying to toss this off on Robert, well, you can't, because it's not his fault, he had nothing to do with this, it was me, on my own. None of this was Robert's fault.

Luke: Well, whose fault then is it? It's not mine!

Holly: Oh, no? If you had been here... if you had let us known that you were alive, none of this would have happened. So, don't you judge me. You have no right.

Jake: Your honor, the decision has already been made! Arrangements are already underway! My client and Mrs. Kelly have agreed they want to be with each other, what is holding things up here?

Judge: Well, that's all very well and good and I can understand your concern, Mr. Meyer. And to be truthful with you, I did not realize I would have to hear a case on this matter. But now that Mrs. Peterson has brought it up, I feel that it's my duty as the judge to hear her arguments as a representative of the state social services department. Please be seated. Please be seated, Mr. Meyer.

Jake: We're dead.

Rose: What do you mean?

Jake: They always go with what social services recommends. It's like keeping it in the family.

Judge: Before you proceed, Mrs. Peterson, I would like to have something clarified. The child is a runaway, is that correct?

Mrs. Peterson: Yes, your honor.

Judge: I assume that all attempts have been made to reach her parents?

Mrs. Peterson: Ah, commissioner Scorpio handled the matter himself. Unfortunately, the parents cannot be located, therefore the need for immediate placement of the child.

Judge: You may continue, Mrs. Peterson.

Mrs. Peterson: Thank you, your honor. As you know, I originally agreed to allow Rose Kelly to have foster care of the child, Louisa Swenson.

Judge: Yes, we all know that. The question remains, why have you changed your mind?

Jake: Yes, we'd all like to know that.

Judge: That would be enough, Mr. Meyer.

Jake: I'm sorry, your honor, I was just curious. Whether you know it or not, this is the first I've heard of Mrs. Peterson's sudden change of mind.

Judge: So, now you can be enlightened at the same time as I. Shall we let her continue?

Jake: By all means, your honor. Curiosity is killing me.

Mrs. Peterson: As I was saying, a certain circumstance has arisen to make me change my mind. At the time when I agreed to let Rose Kelly have care of the child, it was due to the fact that the Baldwins had dropped out and there was no one else willing to take care of a child of her--shall we say difficult background.

Jake: Shall we get to the point, Mrs. Peterson?

Mrs. Peterson: The point is, your honor, that a space has been made available in a home that we regularly use at the agency. This family--and I say family, because it includes a mother and a father--

Jake: Your honor, it has already been decided that the marital status of Mrs. Kelly shall not be a factor in this case.

Judge: If it concerns the future welfare of the child, it most definitely will be a considering factor in this case.

Jake: Your honor, are you willing to discriminate against Mrs. Kelly because of her marital status?

Judge: I am willing to do whatever-- what's necessary within the law to protect the rights of ms. Swenson, and that includes finding her a proper home. Now, please be seated, Mr. Meyer and I will not accept any more outbursts. Louisa, will you stand please and approach the bench?

Lou: Yes, sure. What can I do for you, judge?

Judge: Well, I'd like for you to start by giving me your reaction to all of this.

Lou: Well, I'm with Jake here.

Judge: Yes, I realize that. But, would you like to explain why?

Lou: Well, do I have to?

Judge: No, but if you'd like to live with Mrs. Kelly, it might help.

Lou: Okay. See, judge, I don't get along with a lot of people, especially the foster-parent type, if you know what I mean. They tend to crowd you, always bugging you about school and your homework and your job and stuff like that.

Judge: We call that supervision, Louisa.

Lou: Yeah, right. But what if the kid doesn't need it? Like, what if I can take care of myself?

Judge: Then why do you need anyone, including Rose Kelly?

Lou: Well, see, that's what I used to think until I met Rose. We hit it right off and--well, if I need the supervision you're talking about, I think Rose is the one to give it to me.

Judge: Why?

Lou: Why? Because I respect her.

Judge: I see.

Lou: Anything else?

Judge: No, that would do for now.

Lou: Thank you.

Judge: You may be seated.

Lou: Oh, judge, I like Rose and, well, these Wheelwrights I've never even met them.

Judge: Thank you, Louisa. This is a very difficult case. In fact, it's far more complicated than I thought it would be. And, as a judge I feel I must put it on a trial basis.

Jake: What'll happen in the meantime, your honor?

Judge: I'm getting to that, Mr. Meyer. It seems unwise that a child such as Louisa should be placed in a shelter. So, as the judge, I feel that the custody should go to Rose Kelly.

Everyone: Yes!

Judge: I must remind you this is a temporary arrangement pending full investigation and the ultimate approval of the state social services department.

Jake: That's good enough, your honor, thank you.

Judge: Good luck, Louisa.

Lou: Yes, thank you.

Judge: Mrs. Kelly.

Rose: Thank you, your honor.

Judge: Mrs. Peterson, may I talk with you in my chambers?

[All cheering]

Jake: All right, let's celebrate. We just won our first round!

Rose: This is where I say thank you.

Jake: Me? What for?

Rose: I think you just changed my life.

Luke: Well, I'm surprised you haven't thrown me out.

Holly: I should, you know?

Luke: Yes, you probably should, 'cause you don't think I deserve an answer, do you? I mean, a guy's best friend marries his woman and you don't think the poor jerk is entitled to an explanation?

Holly: Will you stop it?

Luke: Stop what?

Holly: I thought you were dead! My God, you were my whole life! I was destroyed!

Luke: Yeah, so you consoled yourself with my best friend. How long did it take? A week, two weeks? Did he come onto you at the funeral?

Holly: There was no funeral.

Luke: Good.

Holly: There was a memorial service, though, and it was very moving. Why don't you just tell me what you want?

Luke: An explanation.

Holly: It was a marriage of convenience, all right?

Luke: Oh, great!

Holly: They were going to deport me, the immigration department. I was being classified as an undesirable alien.

Luke: So, in order to stay in this country, you had to marry an American citizen. Robert is Australian, darling.

Holly: With American citizenship. I'm surprised you don't remember that.

Luke: Well, I've been away a long time.

Holly: Robert took a great risk doing what he did, and it wasn't for him. It was for you and for the baby. I mean, you know Robert isn't exactly the marrying kind.

Luke: No, he isn't. But he's always been very big on what goes along with marriage. Well?

Holly: I don't know what you're asking.

Luke: I think you do.

Holly: I tried to find you, Luke. I went up to the mountain; I tried to find all the places where we had been. But they were gone like you were.

Luke: Yeah, I went up to the mountain too, but you're not answering my question.

Holly: Which question is that?

Luke: The big one.

Holly: I don't know what you mean.

Luke: All right, English, let me spell it out for you. Are you sleeping with Robert?

Blackie: All right, I guess we got it in the bag! I loved it when you put that Agnes woman in her place.

Jake: I think Lou made the biggest difference.

Lou: Yeah, you really think so?

Jake: Born orator.

Lou: Oh, what can I say, you know? I just tell them like it is and if they don't like it, they can lump it.

[Rose laughs]

Rose: Hey, I fixed up Joe's old room for you and maybe--Blackie, you want to take her upstairs and show it to her?

Blackie: Sure!

Lou: My own room?

Rose: What did you think I was going to do, make you sleep in the kitchen? Of course your own room! Go on, then, show it to her.

Blackie: Right this way!

Rose: Thank you.

Lou: Thank you.

Rose: We should celebrate. How about a--how about a glass of carrot juice?

Jake: I'll take the biggest one you've got.

Blackie: Here we go. Hmm-hmm. Wow! What do you think? Pretty nice, huh? Hmm? Okay, I'll go tell Rose you hate it.

Lou: No, no! No, it is wonderful. I guess I'm just in shock. I've never had my own room before, I mean, all my own. I think I owe you an apology, Blackie.

Blackie: What for?

Lou: Well, for treating you so badly. I mean, from the beginning all the way till now.

Blackie: I have put up with a few worse people than you.

Lou: Yeah, but I think I want to explain it.

Blackie: You don't have to.

Lou: Well, then this is for me. You see, I have this problem, I--I don't trust people, especially guys.

Blackie: You don't have to tell me about that.

Lou: Yeah, I know. But I was wrong about you, Blackie. I mean, you've really been straight with me all this time.

Blackie: That's what friends are for.

Lou: Yeah, I know, but it went further than that. Blackie, you saved my life.

Blackie: Sure I did, I had to!

Lou: Why?

Blackie: Why? Can't you see why, kid? I care about you.

Lou: Maybe that's what I'm trying to say. I care about you, Blackie. A lot. [Kiss]

Rose: This will be difficult.

Jake: [Laughs] It certainly will.

Rose: Well, no, not bad difficult. I think a good difficult. Before, you know, I just get through one day and the next and now I have something to look forward to.

Jake: Yeah, I think you're right. It's going to be very difficult.

Rose: [Laughs] I never thought it would be anything else.

Jake: She needs special attention.

Rose: I'm going to give her everything I have, Jake.

Jake: Well, sometimes that may mean backing off. She's as much--a lot of space as much as anything right now.

Rose: Yeah, I'll keep that in mind. Thank you.

Jake: Me? For what?

Rose: I never would have gotten her if it hadn't been for you.

Jake: Oh, listen, I'd like to take the credit for that, but you guys did all the work!

Lou, you mean, I just sat there through the whole thing.

Jake: You didn't have to speak. The judge read that file. In there are testimonials of half a dozen of your friends saying in their own words what a loving, kind person you are. Don't be embarrassed.

Rose: It's embarrassing!

Jake: What, if you're a well-liked person?

Rose: No, to have someone tell you that.

Jake: Well, everybody needs a pat on the back once in a while. What good is being good if there's nobody there to thank you for it?

Rose: I think you're absolutely right, the thing is I'm usually the one doing the patting.

Jake: Well, it's time you got your due. Besides, I wouldn't mind being a homeless waif myself if I could convince you to take me in.

Rose: Even with my Irish cooking?

Jake: No problem! I'd teach you how to make a great soy bean stew.

Rose: Somehow I just don't think it'd be the same.

Jake: You wait. I'll make a vegetarian out of you yet.

Rose: Counselor, that may just be the biggest challenge of your career.

Jake: Maybe. But at least I'll have fun in the process.

Tiffany: Oh, thank goodness, a familiar face. Look, I've got something to tell you!

Rose: Oh, but I have some news for you first, guess what, the judge has allowed Lou to stay with me! Isn't that great?

Tiffany: That's wonderful, darling, but I have got some news!

Rose: Yes?

Tiffany: You're not going to believe this, Rose.

Rose: Try me.

Tiffany: Bobbie called.

Rose: Startling.

Tiffany: She was looking for Luke.

Rose: What?

Tiffany: I know, I thought she was crazy at first, but now I'm not so sure, I mean, I mean, it could be possible, it could have happened! Oh, I don't know, the whole thing is just absolutely so absurd.

Rose: Tiffany, what are you talking about?

Tiffany: It seems that he's not dead. In fact, from all that I have understood, he has shown up here in port Charles and he is very much alive!

Luke: You can't stall all day.

Holly: I'm not.

Luke: Oh, really? "Sit down, Luke, have a cup of coffee, sit down here and just tell me about it." Listen, sweetheart, I asked you a question and I expect an answer. Since this was just a marriage of convenience, you're not sleeping with my best friend, are you? Are you? Yeah. Well, that's what I thought. I mean, I know my friends.

Holly: What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Luke: You couldn't keep your hands off each other, could you?

Holly: Oh, we did, we did for a long time.

Luke: Did you?

Holly: Yes, all right, we slept together! But we thought you were dead! And unlike the ancient Egyptians I wasn't supposed to crawl into the grave next to you. Do you have any idea how I felt? How lost I was? How devastated?

Luke: Yeah, well, it was very convenient for you to have my best friend around, wasn't it?

Holly: Yes, he was your best friend. He still is! And that's why he took care of me. I went through hell, Luke. It was like a nightmare. What kind of a cruel joke were you playing on me?

Luke: This was no joke!

Holly: Oh no? What would you call it then? I don't care where you were, you could have picked up a phone.

Luke: It's not that easy, don't you understand? You can't just pick up a phone, it doesn't happen that way!

Holly: You put the people you loved through a horrible experience. It was cruel not to call. As simple as that.

Luke: No, it's not as simple as that, don't you understand? I was told--I was told by doctors that I would probably not walk again. Paralyzed! Do you have any idea of what paralyzed means, baby? I don't think you do. And that's why I didn't tell you, because it would be a burden to you! I didn't want to burden you with that.

Holly: Is that the kind of faith that you had in our love that you thought I would rather have you dead than handicapped?

Luke: Handicapped? Handicapped? English, I was a mess. I was a mess. I couldn't dress myself. My God, going to the bathroom was a half-day ordeal! You couldn't handle that!

Holly: So that's it, you didn't think I could handle it.

Luke: I knew you couldn't. I know you couldn't.

Holly: Oh, you're so sure, you always were, you never had any faith in me.

Luke: Please, that's not true. That's not true.

Holly: Oh, isn't it? You just said it was. It's because of my past. I know that you never could forget about that. That's why you went up onto the mountain!

Luke: No.

Holly: You never really trusted me.

Luke: No!

Holly: For what other possible reason could it be?

Luke: What do you want from me? Holly, I was scared! I was paralyzed, don't you understand? I'd probably be dead now if it weren't for a couple of good friends of mine up on that mountain.

Holly: Oh, great. So, you killed yourself and you made some new friends. Well, that's lovely. What about your old friends? What about your family? What about me, the woman who loved you? You got hurt and you turned to strangers. And we sat here and we mourned you. Well, I don't think that's fair. I don't think that's fair at all!

Luke: All right! All right. [Sighs] Let me tell you something.

Holly: Luke!

[Luke screams]

Holly: Luke, what is it? Can I call a doctor?

Luke: No, no, no, no doctors. No, I've lived with this long enough, it'll pass, holly. It'll pass. Just help me up, okay? Get me off the floor. Let's get me on the sofa. Keep trying. It's okay.

Holly: Okay. [Screams]

Luke: [Pants] Yeah.

Holly: You could have done it yourself all the time!

Luke: That's right.

Holly: Why?

Luke: Well, maybe now you know. This is how it was, baby. This is how it was. How could I burden you with that? You know why I couldn't? Because I love you. Now do you know?

Rose: Luke was a very dear friend of ours, and we thought he died a while ago.

Jake: Yeah, I seem to remember the name, was it in the papers or something?

Rose: Oh, Luke was always in the paper.

Tiffany: Well, it sounds like he's going to be there a lot more, soon too.

Rose: Now, tiffany, you've got to tell me just what exactly did you hear?

Tiffany: It's just exactly like I told you, he showed up over at Robert's and then all of a sudden he disappeared again.

Rose: They're sure? They're sure it's him?

Tiffany: It sure sounded like it.

Rose: Then he must have found out about Robert and holly.

Tiffany: Unless he already knew. Oh, I don't know, I'm telling you, I'm in such a state of shock myself I can't get a grasp on any of this stuff.

Blackie: Great room, Rose! I mean, you have a little fire escape up the back, so I can sneak up.

Lou: What's wrong?

Blackie: Yeah, why all the long faces?

Lou: The judge, she changed her mind, didn't she?

Jake: No, no, no, nothing like that.

Blackie: Someone must have died, you guys look terrible.

Rose: Oh, nobody died, nobody died.

Rose: No, as a matter of fact it's just the opposite. It's about an old friend of ours.

Blackie: Well, yeah, who?

Rose: Go ahead, tiffany.

Tiffany: Well, Blackie, it seems that Luke is still alive!

Blackie: What?

Rose: It's true.

Tiffany: Yeah, Bobbie--Bobbie called us, I--he just showed up out of nowhere.

Blackie: Where is he?

Rose: We don't know.

Tiffany: He just walked out again.

Blackie: Was he okay? I mean, where has he been all this time? Why didn't he tell us--?

Rose: We don't know, nobody knows!

Tiffany: Apparently, all that we do know is that he is walking with a cane, other than that, he seems to be all right.

Blackie: Who saw him?

Tiffany: The one who missed him the most: Holly.

Robert: Well, I've got several units looking for him but no luck yet.

Holly: It's no use.

Robert: What's that?

Holly: He was here.

Robert: Luke, when?

Holly: Just a little while ago.

Robert: So what happened?

Holly: He--he walked out.

Robert: Where was he going? Holly, where was he going?

Holly: I don't know.

Robert: He's upset you.

Holly: I'm all right.

Robert: No, you're not.

Holly: He was right, you know? We couldn't have done anything to help him.

Robert: What are you saying?

Holly: He was paralyzed. That's why he didn't call us or let us know how he was.

Robert: Well, that's okay, we can help him now, we know he's in the city!

Holly: Oh, you don't understand!

Robert: Look, my men are everywhere. They're going to find him eventually.

Holly: He doesn't want to talk.

Robert: He will, when we find him. What worries me is what he's doing to you now. What did he do to you?

Holly: He made me say things.

Robert: What things?

Holly: Never mind.

Robert: No, tell me, please. Holly, I love you too much to watch him doing this to you.

Holly: I had it coming.

Robert: What?

Holly: Oh, nothing, Robert, just leave me alone.

[Phone rings]

Robert: Scorpio. Good work. I'm on my way.

Holly: They spotted him?

Robert: Yes, he's heading towards the waterfront.

Holly: Please, Robert.

Robert: I have to.

Holly: [Sighs]

Rose: Hey, I'd--uhm--I'd like to get that recipe from you for your soy bean stew.

Jake: I'll tell you what, we'll get together one night, and we'll do it together.

Rose: Don't make promises you can't keep!

Jake: I never do.

Rose: I want to thank you again, Jake, I mean, about the Lou business. I can--I can assure you one thing, that we're going to do everything we can to make it work.

Jake: I know you will, Rose. Well, I hope it's not too far, but I'm going to kiss you on the cheek for good luck.

Rose: I'd be terribly hurt if you didn't.

Jake: Thanks.

Rose: Why, thanks?

Jake: Oh, I don't know. Just thanks.

Rose: I'm the one who should be thanking you.

Jake: Well, I'm going to make a telephone call.

Tiffany: I don't know, I'm telling you, I have gone--I got over it and over it and over it again in my mind and I just can't come up with any kind of explanation for it.

Blackie: Maybe he lost his memory or something.

Lou: Yeah, yeah, I've heard of that, a guy gets bonked on the head and he can't remember a thing.

Jake: Yeah, well, I thought of that too, but surely he would have called once he remembered again.

Blackie: Maybe he tried.

Jake: Well, surely one of us would have been home, Blackie.

Rose: Maybe he was scared to come back, I don't know, you know? Something might have happened to him that he was ashamed of.

Jake: Like what?

Rose: Well, you did say something about a cane.

Jake: Well, that could mean anything.

Blackie: Robert, is it true? Is it true? Come on.

Robert: I haven't seen him yet. Yes, apparently he is hurt and he's walking around with the assistance of a cane. Yes, he knows about holly and myself and all I know is I've got to find him.

Blackie: Well, I'm going to go with you.

Robert: No, I'd like you to stay here with the others, just in case he turns up.

Rose: Okay, what do we do if he does?

Robert: Frankly, I don't care. Just keep him here till I get back.

Blackie: But can I go with you, please?

Robert: No, Blackie, absolutely not. I have to find Luke. And I've got to find him alone.

Holly: [Sighs] Six months had gone. [Sighs]

Robert: Luke.
