(Just as their raft is headed over the falls, Luke and Laura are saved by a helicopter; Jason and Brenda feel guilty when they realize the truth about Karen.)
Brenda: [Groans] What is that one! This is like torture. Every time I try and read, my eyes just automatically close. It's like some kind of reflex reaction or something.
You can't read when you're tired!
This is what's making me tired!
Well, how about getting up a little earlier in the morning?
Are you kidding? I'm dead in the morning.
Has ray been here?
Ray? Oh, your friend.
He's not my friend!
The one with the dark hair?
Yeah, yeah, yeah. Has he been in here?
No, I haven't seen him.
I'm going to kill him. I'm going to kill him for what he did to Karen.
Karen? What happened? Is she all right?
No, she's not, ruby.
I can't believe what he did to her. She was only a little girl. He's such an animal, that guy.
Rhonda, be careful.
Ok. If he shows up... never mind. I'm going to go find him myself.
Rhonda! Rhonda, wait!
If he shows up, call me and keep him here!
That's what Jagger couldn't tell me.
Hey, man. Hello! Where'd you go?
I'm right here.
Who'd you think I was?
Look, I didn't know.
Well, you're ok, right?
Yeah, I'm fine.
Well, the--ruby's burgers are the best.
Thanks. Did you get pickles with it?
Cool. So, who's ruby?
She owns Kelly's. It's a diner down in the waterfront.
Are you guys friends or something?
You mean ruby? Oh, yeah. She's great. So, how long are you planning to hide out for?
I don't know yet.
It's not your parents, is it? You know, that you're running away from?
No. I'm not running away from anybody.
Well, do you know where they are? I mean, your parents?
[Sighs] Right this second, I'm not exactly sure.
Luke! The falls! Oh, my God! Luke! The falls!
Give me your hand!
I love you.
Come on! Get that damned ladder over here!
Do you know what Jagger told me? He said that I couldn't begin to imagine what Karen's been through.
Ok, but that doesn't mean--
Did you see Rhonda's face? She was not kidding when she said she wanted to kill this...ray guy. You know who he is, don't you?
Yeah. I--I mean, I've seen him. Brenda, I'm not saying you're wrong.
I'm not. I know it. I wish that I was. I do.
You really think he molested Karen when she was little?
Yeah. I mean, Rhonda practically said it, what else could she have meant? And I just realized, Jason, that every time that guy came in here, at least every time I saw him, he was always trying to hang around her. I mean, he'd walk in here, he'd spatter and bam! He was always in her face.
What'd she do?
She'd just disappear into the kitchen, usually. Sometimes she'd just take off, she'd just leave. What were we? Blind? Anyone could see that she didn't want to be around this guy. I mean, ruby, me, her mother, one of us should have figured it out!
[Sighs] I--I can't even... Brenda, this--this is so sick, it won't sink in. How--how were you supposed to put it together. You and Karen hardly even talk to each other.
Sure we did. At least I talked to her. I've been on her case practically non-stop.
Don't-- don't start kicking yourself, you didn't know.
Oh, and that makes a big difference?
Look. All any of us knew was that Karen started acting weird.
And when was that? Think about it, Jason. It was when ray showed up here.
I don't remember. I mean, you know what keeps going through my mind?
All the lousy things I ever said to Karen. I think it runs in the family.
Stop it, Jason!
No, what's--what's--what's the matter? Did I hit a nerve?
Leave me alone!
Come on, Karen, you're not fooling anybody. Not anymore. Once you forget--
Forget this nice girl act. This little virgin act.
Stop it, Jason!
When you want it, you can't say no. Admit it. Go ahead. I think we're talking like mother, like daughter, you're just a little slut--
No, I am not!
Explain something to me. Well, how is it that a straight "a" student, who practically walks on water, ends up stripping? I mean, did you need the money, Karen? Or do you actually get off on it? I mean, look, I'm a pretty good judge of character, and you've always been such A... such a good girl...you know. I mean, remember when whoever it was took those pictures of you in the shower and spread them around school? You were so freaked out, and it wasn't even that big of a deal. Jason had to come and drag you to school. What could have possibly happened to make you change, Karen? What happened? Were you afraid everyone's going to find out you're not the sweet young thing you pretend to be? Like mother, like daughter, right? I told her that she was a slut, just like her mother. Jason, I never would have said that if I would have known about this. I wouldn't.
I know. I--I've said stuff too. And--and I know A.J. Hit her pretty hard a couple of times. Do you think she kept it a secret all this time?
Looks that way.
Wh--what about Jagger? You said he knew.
Well, I think that Jagger just found out. Jagger said he was going down to the police station to meet Karen.
Maybe she's going to press charges.
[Sighs] I hope she is. Because that... there's not even a word rotten enough for someone like ray, because whatever he gets, Jason, he deserves worse.
Yeah, well, he knew what Karen deserves.
A mom who knows how to be a mother. I--I think Rhonda was more like the kid in their relationship. I hope she can get her act together. Karen is going to need her.
No, I mean, you don't get it. My mom and dad are great.
[Chuckles] Well, I mean, you don't know where they are, but, do they know where you are?
Yeah. Basically. Look, it's a long story. I mean, there's good guys, bad guys. I promise I'll tell you the whole story when I can, ok?
You're one of the good guys, all right?
And the bad guys... are after you.
Yeah, and my parents.
Aren't they worried about you? You're all alone!
Probably. Especially my mom. She's probably going nuts, and driving my dad nuts. Well, look. I mean, I'm ok, right?
I mean, look. They'll be here to hook up-- to hook up with me anytime.
How do you know for sure?
They will be. I mean, my dad's really cool when it comes to stuff like this.
Come in closer!
Luke, the falls!
If I take the ladder... a little closer! Get it! Get it!
Hang on, baby! That's right! That's right!
Hang on to me, Laura!
Hang on! Here we go! Here we go!
This is so cool. Do you know how long I have waited for this?
Oh, about 16 years...
Well, I didn't know what driving lessons were when I was a baby, so maybe about 10 years.
So you're ready to take your lessons?
Yeah. How about tomorrow?
Sounds good to me.
Ok. What time?
Sounds good. So I'll just come, um, straight to the brownstone from school.
No, that's ok. I can come here.
Are you sure? It's no problem.
Oh, sure! That's ok. We got to get used to using Mac's car, that's the one you're going to use when you get your license, right?
Right, but, um, I just thought maybe if I went to the brownstone, we could avoid any hassles with uncle Mac.
Well, I think he was planning on teaching me how to drive.
Oh, no. No. Big mistake. In fact, let this be your very first lesson. Men are the worst when it comes to driving. Trust me. They go much too fast, they cut people off, they come this close to... what? A parked car? And you don't dare say anything about it, because if you do, they say, "I wasn't driving too fast. That guy was a jerk, that's why I cut him off. And besides, I was a mile away from that parked car."
And fender-benders. Pfft. It's never their fault. Ever.
I think you're exaggerating, just a little bit.
No... no, I'm not exaggerating. Men think they're the greatest drivers. They get tickets, they get into accidents, but they still think they're the greatest drivers. But as we do one itty-bitty thing wrong, like maybe park 6 inches away from the curb too far, and we're not fit to sit behind the whee--
I thought you'd still be manning our post over at the stakeout.
It's all over. I solved the case.
What? Just like that? Case is closed?
That's right. Caught the husband, told the wife. Case is closed!
Great! Where is my half of the fee?
I did all the work. You didn't do anything.
Partners is partners. What are you two up to anyway?
[Chuckles] Well... I don't think you're going to like this, but... we think it's a great idea.
Well, see, I got my learner's permit finally, right? And, um... Felicia is going to teach me how to drive.
[Chuckles] I think it's a terrible idea! Robin, I'm going to teach you how to drive!
Yeah...so predictable. Mac, please... this isn't personal. This isn't against you, or anything, but please! It's just common sense.
No. No, I don't think so.
Everybody knows that most men don't have any patience when they try to teach their women how to drive.
Where did you come up with that? Robin, don't listen to this propaganda. And whose car were you planning on using for these lessons?
Yours. I figured she might as well get used to it, unless of course you're planning on buying a bright, brand-new, red convertible. For Christmas.
Are you? Oh, no, wait, don't tell me.
No red convertible.
Felicia, I'm a better driver than you. And I'm a more experienced driver than you.
You have never even seen me behind the wheel.
Yeah! There's a reason for that.
Watch this. How many tickets have you gotten?
Oh, come on!
No, really. How many tickets have you gotten? I have never gotten any.
Well, you got one about three months ago, remember?
Yeah, thank you very much, robin. A rolling stop! I was out in the middle of nowhere, and it was a rolling stop! Ooh! I'm a real menace to society!
There's no direct correlation to how many tickets a person may or may not have gotten and the kind of driver that he is.
Have you ever been to traffic school? Have you? I haven't.
No! Of course you haven't! That's because you toot along at 30 miles an hour.
I do not.
You're the real road hazard, Felicia.
Do you ever look in your rear-view mirror?
Oh, boy...you're really reaching for things now--
You probably leave a trail of demolished cars in your way.
You're absolutely pitiful, do you know that?
But you just drive merrily on your way.
You're impossible! What?
How old are you two anyway? Just forget about this driving thing, all right? I changed my mind, all right? I know what I'm going to do.
Yeah, it's ray. Listen, what the hell is going on with you and your daughter? She flips out and starts screaming "rape," then you run loose all over town making things worse?
Karen, how could you say something so horrible?
Because it's the truth. The whole time you were seeing him, mom, he was sexually abusing me.
I don't believe that. He was always so wonderful to us. He wouldn't do anything to hurt you. Th-th-there's some mistake. I'm certain of it. Maybe you had a dream, and you thought--
No, mom! It was not an isolated incident either. He did it to me over and over.
I would have seen it.
You made it so easy for him. Sometimes you were out, but most of the times he waited until you were so drunk, and then he would come in to my room. And he would pull down the shades, so none of the neighbors could see in, and turn up the radio.
Why would he do that?
So no one can hear me when I cried.
Oh, my God! Oh, God... why didn't you tell me?
I was terrified. I felt guilty. He used to threaten me. He said that if I told, that everybody would know how bad I was, and that the two of you would have to leave me behind, all by myself.
And you believed that?
Why not? No one was stopping him, were they? In my mind, that meant that he was right, and I was the bad one.
What about later? What about all that time since then?
I blocked it out. I--I guess it was...too much. And then he came back, and all of a sudden I started remembering. And you...let him stay here on this couch, and told him to come wake me up when you weren't here. And don't think he didn't try anything either. He wanted things to go right back to where they used to be.
Baby...I'm so sorry...
No, don't. Don't worry. I didn't let him touch me this time.
What can I say? Tell me what to say.
How about "I'm sorry?"
So when you get home, stay there. I'm on my way over.
[Sighs] I'll be here.
Hold on tight! Don't look down!
We ditched a stolen plane and you call the police?
Fine, fine. Officers! We'd like to go back to the boat now!
Wait a minute. If we don't climb up, they can't land!
Good point. Good point, we won't climb up. We'll just--we'll just hang here a while, and... think of something. Are you thinking? Laura?
I'm thinking! I'm thinking!
Come on! Let's do it!
But we weren't invited! It's so rude!
So we'll send a gift later. Hi!
Sorry to drop in unannounced like this.
Look at that!
Oh, champagne to wore off the chill. Thank you, my man. Here, darling.
Oh, thank you very much.
You look beautiful.
You look gorgeous.
Isn't she lovely?
It's a fabulous dress.
Yeah, you're a very lucky young man. Well, we'd love to stay and cut the cake for you, but...we're running a tad behind schedule today. Excuse us, would you?
Best wishes. Congratulations.
Oh, uh... be good to each other! Never go to bed angry.
Champagne for everybody! More champagne!
They took that awfully well.
Yeah, nice people, huh? Hey, look!
Her veil? Oh, no...
You're still the most beautiful bride I ever saw.
Ugh...I must take it then that things have gone from bad to worse between Ned and Julia.
Well...that's why she wants out.
Mm-hmm. What did your father say when you asked him for the money?
He turned me down.
What makes you think I won't?
Well, I know you're impressed with the computer system that I've installed. I know you like the promotional ideas I've come up with. I--I know I haven't proven myself capable of managing a hotel, but, grandfather, that's just because Ned hasn't let me--
How much does Julia want for her share?
It's all broken down here.
Ooh... top of the markets...
I think it's fair. The hotel is making money. Now, she insisted on a limited term of profit participation. I negotiated 10% for three years.
I think if we get down to it, I could probably bring the sale price down even more.
A half million?
Maybe. Does that mean you're considering my proposal?
It means you got me in an incredibly good mood, and I'm not going to say no... just yet.
You're really excited about this whole banquet thing, huh?
[Laughs] A.J., My boy... I have never, through all of our ups-and-downs, been more proud of your father than I am today. It's a very big honor that he's about to receive.
But you always knew he could do it, though, right?
Well, I always knew he could do it. Whether or not he actually would choose to do it is a question that's been hanging in the air.
You know, it's funny you should say that.
Why? I don't like that look in your eyes.
[Laughs] Because a lot of people have always told me that my relationship with my dad is a lot like his relationship with you.
No, then God help us all if that's true.
Grandfather, listen to me, how many--how many years have you spent wondering, worrying, arguing whether or not dad was going to live up to your expectations?
My expectations? That's not exactly the way I see it.
I'm sorry, I'm sorry. It's a matter of perspective. I'll leave that one alone.
[Chuckles] Smart boy. Go on.
Ok. This is a chance for us to avoid all that--that what--what do you call it?
Right! Yes! Let me buy Julia's half of the hotel. Let me prove myself right here and right now. And, of course, there's also another reason to do it.
The Port Charles hotel would fall completely under Quartermaine control.
[Chuckles] I know.
So you will consider it?
Eh, I'll consider a couple of possibilities. One being that I buy Julia's half of the hotel and let Ned manage the whole works. And the hotel is not a toy, and it's not a testing ground.
Grandfather, I know, but we don't have a lot of time.
We have all the time we need. Julia knows she won't get a better offer from anyone else. We have a vested interest in this place.
Grandfather. I can do this.
Oh, oh. W--w--wait. Wait. I can't--I--I need to rest.
We can't rest right now. We got everybody after us now, up to and including the mother of the bride! Come on!
I--I want the bag, Luke.
Oh, honey, please. We will never find that bag. And if we do, guess who gets to carry it.
Luke, there are pictures, there are papers in there. They could identify us.
[Panting] Lucky's baby things are in it.
All right. All right. We can't leave Lucky's baby booties for the raccoons. They took you over half a year to make the damned things.
[Sighs] But-- I mean, sweetheart, that bag... that bag could be anywhere. Within 50 miles, that bag could be in Canada!
I always knew you could do anything.
Come on, let's get your luggage.
Robin! Come on, just stay here.
Just forget it. It was a dumb idea. I'm going to sign up for the driver's Ed program at school. Which is what I should have done in the first place, then you guys wouldn't have gotten into another fight.
We're not fighting! And what the--
Oh, give me a break. Come on, everyone else learns at driver's school, I will too. It'll be fun. Besides, I'll save money on my insurance.
How much money?
Take driver's ed.
All right. Well, I'll see you later, ok?
Wait a minute, where are you going?
I'm going back to school before the office closes, and then I'm going over to Alison's to spend the night. You two-year-olds try not to kill each other while I'm gone, ok?
Just be careful.
All right. Bye.
Thanks a lot.
What? What? Did I ruin your little plan?
No. I wanted to teach her how to drive. I thought it might be fun.
Oh, yeah, sure you did. Not to mention the fact that teaching her how to drive would have given you the perfect excuse to show up here on a daily basis, right?
Hey. I caught you, Felicia. You cannot accept the fact that I meant what I said about it being over between us, can you?
Mac, I swear to you--
What? That the only reason you wanted to teach robin how to drive was to teach her how to drive?
She asked me!
Or that that bogus stakeout was for real? Come on, Felicia, I knew from the word go that you were setting me up. And since there was no case, you can keep all the fees.
I can't believe it. I mean, you used--you used robin, just like you used Maxie on her birthday. Why don't you just give up? It's not going to work, ok? 3q the battle against germs on hands
[Knocking on the door]
Come on in! Oh, hi! Not waiting until the last minute to get dressed, or anything, I see.
I have time. Where is mom?
She's at the hospital. Had to see a patient. She's going to meet us at the banquet. Is something wrong?
It's--it's about Karen.
What about her? Is she all right?
No. Well-- I--I don't know.
Ok. You know her mom's boyfriend, ray?
Well, I--I just found out, when--when Karen was a little girl, he molested her.
Who told you that?
Rhonda came storming into Kelly's looking for ray. Dad, you should have seen her.
What was she doing?
Well, she was--she was frantic. She was... she was telling ruby about something ray did-- ray did to Karen when she was little. I mean, I couldn't make any sense of it at all. But then--but then, Brenda remembered something Jagger said to her about Karen.
Ok, ok, but no one actually said--
Dad. Brenda is positive. So am I. Rhonda was totally out of control.
Where did she go?
To find ray.
Have you seen Karen?
No. And--and I don't know what to say to her when I do.
[Sighs] Rhonda must be going through hell. She must feel so guilty about it. Karen kept it a secret all this time?
I guess so. I--I guess she was ashamed. Dad--dad, wh--what about you helping her? I know how much she appreciates all the help you've given her. You know, when she got in trouble with drugs and everything.
Did she tell you about that?
Yeah, she was really grateful.
She seems to do ok with other people kids.
I think Karen is supposed to be at the banquet.
Yes, she was invited. Look, if she's there, we are going to have to play it by ear, ok?
Jason. Rhonda tried to call me earlier. She didn't sound good.
You didn't call her back?
Ok, now, take it easy.
Give me your key, ray.
No, come on now, just take it easy, sweetheart.
Oh, my God. I gave you that key so you could keep an eye on Karen. Give me the key!
Hey, cool it!
No, I mean it. Cool it, you know. I know that Karen said a lot of crazy things lately.
Karen told the truth. My daughter told the truth. Give me the key!
Hey, you know-- you're just a little bit out of control here, Rhonda.
You're an animal! How could you do that? She was only a little girl.
Get away from me! Don't touch me!
You know what? I took enough of that crap from your daughter. I'm not going to take it from you.
You want your keys? Huh? Want your keys?
[Ray shouting indistinctly]
Rhonda! Jason! I want you and A.J. to take one of your cars. I'll see you at the banquet. I've got an errand to run.
Where are we?
I don't know. I figure somewhere near Port Charles city limits.
I can't make it all the way into town tonight.
Sweetheart. Look, we've got chopper cops coming up behind us. We've got frank smith's men probably waiting for us up ahead.
Yeah, well, I can't face either of them without a good night's rest, Luke.
What a beautiful house.
Hey, well, maybe they've got a phone. We need to rent a car.
I don't think anybody lives here anymore.
Although watch out for those floor boards. They look rotten.
A house this beautiful wouldn't hurt anybody.
It's even more wonderful inside, Luke. Can we please stay here tonight?
Look, I've got things to do. What are you going to do? Are you going to stay here? What are you going to do?
Are you listening to me?
I've heard it before.
No, you haven't. Please.
I was wrong, and you were right, and I'm sorry.
I'm sorry too, but it doesn't change anything.
Yes, it does. I love you. I've loved you since long before I even knew that I love you. And I want to marry you, and if you turn me down again, I don't know what I'm going to do.
Rhonda! You son-of-a-- Rhonda. Rhonda! Rhonda!
