Tad is with Junior searching for evidence to find Dixie.
Dixie has been holding Leslie over the balcony when Leslie takes out some mace and sprays Dixie with it. She gets a hold of Dixie and tosses her body over the railing and Dixie is only holding on for her life with her two hands. Leslie tries to pry Dixie’s fingers free from the rails, but she won’t let go. So she realizes that David is behind her wanting to save Dixie. She turns to where he is and shuts the terrace door, locking David inside and preventing him from saving Dixie. Dixie is still screaming frantically for her life, when Leslie returns for another try at sending her flying to her death… David gets the door open and still stands back. The phone is ringing and David tries to reason with Leslie. She threatens to spray mace in Dixie’s face to get her to let go of the railing. David tells her that he has to call Tad. There is no way that Tad is going to want Leslie if she hurts Dixie. Leslie lets him call Tad. David tells Tad that he has to talk to Leslie to make her understand that he cares about her. He reminds her that he helped her in high school. The things that he is saying to her touch Leslie. She wants to talk to Tad. She tells David to give her the phone. She reaches for it and David grabs her and throws her to the side of the balcony. Away from Dixie. David rushes to Dixie’s aide and starts hauling her up towards safety. The line where Tad was talking to David has gone dead …David has brought Dixie into the office and has her on the couch. Dixie is hyperventilating and David is coming to her aid. Dixie is shouting that she can’t see. She is very hysterical over it. Leslie has gotten up after being knocked over by David. She has followed David into the office where he is attending to Dixie. She finds a knife on the desk. She clutches it and slowly walks up behind David. She is not sure what she is going to do, but she is going to do something. Dixie is telling David once again that she can’t see, but now she thinks that she sees something behind him. He turns in time to grab Leslie, but not before she can stab him in the arm. Leslie goes running out on the terrace again. David follows her out to the terrace. Leslie is holding the knife again and David tells her that she has gone far enough. Leslie thinks that he will never get Dixie now. She is going to blow him so far out of the water that he will never return. He suspects that she is on Libidozone. She is very high on it. She is not afraid of him. She is going to ruin him. He won’t get Dixie and he will go to jail. She climbs over the terrace to get away from him. David shouts at her to come back. She shouts at him, "Stay away from me!" She is trying to climb over to the next terrace. David shouts at her to come back. She shouts at him again to stay back. The brick where her foot is standing gives away from the building and slides outwards towards the long fall downward. Leslie realizes that she is in deep trouble and screams one last time as she plummets…almost to certain death. David manages to get a hold of Leslie. He is holding her by her arms and she is on the verge of death. She is shouting to him to hold on to her and save her miserable life. "Oh David please, don’t drop me, please." David is holding on. He looks down at her. She is hanging off the injured arm. He can’t hold on much longer, but he does for now.
…The line is dead and Tad is now really worried. Tad tries to explain to Junior that he had to talk to Leslie is loving terms because something is going on. Junior has a tantrum and starts throwing things at Tad. Tad grabs him and holds him. They calm down and Tad tells Junior that something good can come out of this bad thing. Junior needs to be focused and figure this out. In this case, they have to go over everything that they know about Leslie. Junior thinks that rehashing the events will not help. Tad is sure that Junior is going to remember something that is going to save their mother. Junior shakes hands with Tad and hugs him, but he is still mad at his father. Tad wants to hear about this thing. Junior tells him that he was in the park and…. After the story is over, Tad wants him to tell the story again. Junior tells him that Leslie was saying that somebody was going to take a fall. Like somebody was going to take a fall, a long, long fall. Tad thinks that was a figure of speech. She said nothing else. All she did was play with these keys. Tad wonders if there was a rabbit’s foot on the key chain. Tad checks for the office keys. They are gone. Tad gets a policeman to stay with Junior. The cop is to call Derek and get him to meet Tad at Chandler Enterprises.
