She tells him to get out and to keep his mouth shut. This is a serious situation and she doesnít want him involved in this. He refuses to act like he didnít see any of this. He tells her that he canít forget what he has seen and she knows that. He thinks that there are family members that would love to know that Anna is alive.

He is not the only one that has a little secret now is he? She tells him that she saw him put the drug in the punch. If she tells the story to anyone, he will lose his license. He thinks that what she has is nothing compared to what she has to lose. He asks her, "What do you think you will lose if I tell what I have to say?
