Scene 1
Setting: An Undisclosed Location

Daisy grabs a knife and slowly walks to the doorway.

Suddenly the she grabs the figure. A small struggle begins with the hooded figure and Daisy.

"Stop!" Daisy yells. "I have a knife."

The hooded figure puts up his hands.

"Reveal yourself" Daisy commands.

The figure slowly turns around and takes off his hood. Daisy stumbles back in shock.

"No...it can’t be..." she whispers, covering her mouth with her hand. "Vinny? You’re alive?"

Vinny smiles at Daisy. "In the flesh" he smiles.

Daisy gasps in horror, and falls backwards. "No...no, this can’t be happening. You’re...you’re dead" she manages to get out.

Vinny walks closer to Daisy. Daisy slowly puts out her hand and touches Vinny’s face. She quickly stumbles backwards again.

"You see? I’m alive Daisy. Alive and well" Vinny smirks.

"But....how?" Daisy asks, still in shock.

Vinny walks over the bed, and lays down. "That, my dear, is a long story. However, by the looks of things, you aren’t going anyway fast."

Daisy gets up and sits on the bed. She is about to say something, when Vinny cuts her off.

"Sshh" he says, placing his finger over his mouth. "I know Daisy. I know everything. I know your sister put you in here."

Daisy looks down, almost ashamed of her sister and her actions. "Can you help me get out?" she finally asks.

"We’ll talk. I thought you wanted to know my story?" Vinny smiles.

"I do. I’m still in shock."

"Well, get comfortable..."

Scene 2
Setting: The Calimo Cabin

Shane and Leah enter the cabin. Natasha’s back is to Leah. "Hello" Leah calls out. Natasha gets up slowly. She turns around. Leah gasps in horror. "My God..." she whispers. "Natasha? Is it really you?"

Shane looks at Leah. "She can’t remember."

"What?" Leah asks.

"She doesn’t remember anything. Nothing. I’ve tried everything medically to jog her memory, and nothing. That’s why I brought you here. I thought you could help."

Leah slowly walks over to Natasha. "Hi" Leah says, unknowing of what to say.

"Hello." Natasha replies, sitting back down. "Do I know you? I mean, did I know you?"

Leah sits in the chair adjacent to the sofa. "Yes. I am your sister in law. I’m married to your brother, Robbie."

Leah stops, and looks at Natasha. She grabs her hand, and holds it. "I’m just still overwhelmed to see you. We all thought you were dead." Leah says, getting a tear in her eye.

Leah stuns Natasha when she moves over and hugs her. "We all really missed you, and love you Natasha."

Natasha returns the embrace. "I’m trying my hardest, but I just can’t remember anything." Natasha says, trying to let Leah down easy.

"I hope to help you remember." Leah says, smiling at Natasha. "And I think I know what will help." Leah says, standing up.

Leah walks to the door. "I’ll be right back."

Leah leaves the cabin. Shane walks over the sofa, and sits next to Natasha.

"Remember anything new?"

"No. I’m trying so hard Shane, but nothing’s working." Natasha replies, getting discouraged.

Shane puts his hand on Natasha’s shoulder. "Don’t give up. Leah is here, and we will do everything we can to help you."

Natasha looks at Shane, and gets a tear in her eye. "Thank you."

They embrace, but the it is short lived, as Leah returns. She quickly walks back to the chair that she was sitting in. She looks at Natasha again.

"I have some pictures that you can look at" Leah says, handing Natasha a photo album.

Natasha takes the photo album and looks at it. It’s white, and has a soft cover.

"Go ahead...open it" Leah tells Natasha.

Natasha quickly glances at Leah, and then at Shane. She then slowly opens the album. She sees a picture of her and Cory at their wedding.

"That’s me...and the man from my dreams" Natasha says slowly, running her finger over the photo.

"That’s you and Cory on your wedding day. You were married last fall." Shane says.

Natasha stops and looks up at Leah. Tears quickly form in the corner of her eyes.

"What is it Natasha? What’s wrong? Are you remembering?" Leah asks.

Natasha throws the photo album on the coffee table. "No! This is hopeless!" she says, rushing out of the room.

Natasha enters the kitchen, and grabs her coat. "I’m going for a walk!" she yells, slamming the door.

Back inside the living room, Leah looks at Shane. "Something has to give, Shane. She has to remember."

"Give her time, Leah. This is all so new. It just takes time." Shane replies.

They are interrupted by Leah’s cell phone ringing. "Hello" she says, picking up her phone. "Robin, hi!....What? You and Cory?....No, no. I am happy for you. Very happy.....I will be home soon. See you then. Bye."

Leah places her phone on the table, and puts her hands over her face.

"What’s the matter Leah?"

"Robin and Cory got married."

"What? My god..." Shane says.

"I know. What happens when Natasha remembers?" Leah ponders.

Scene 3
Setting: Jason’s House in White Cove

Jason is in the basement of the house lifting weights. The basement is a small room. The floors are cement and the walls are wooden. On the walls are 2 large posters of models in bikini's.

A few glands of sweat are on Jason’s shirtless chest. Like I Love You, by Justin Timberlake is playing on the CD player. He quickly glances at the clock. "Damn!" he says, putting the weights on the stand. "Rebecca should be here soon."

Jason quickly gets up and shuts off the CD player. He races upstairs and enters his bedroom. He pulls off his shorts, revealing his naked body. He enters the bathroom, and closes the door halfway. He turns on the shower, and enters.

Meanwhile, outside his house, Rebecca drives into the driveway. She stops the car and exits. She looks at the small house, and smiles to herself. She begins to walk to the door and sees the unplanted garden, and once again smiles at herself.

She arrives at the door, and knocks three times. She waits for Jason to open the door. When he doesn’t arrive, she knocks again. Still, no one responds.

"Hello?" she says, opening the door herself. "Jason?"

Rebecca enters the house and looks around. She sees no sign of Jason. She enters the kitchen. Suddenly Jason rushes out of the washroom, dripping wet. The towel in his hand.

"Rebecca!" Jason says, surprised.

Rebecca’s mouth drops open, and quickly turns away from the naked man. "I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have entered."

Jason smiles. "Give me a minute."

Jason enters the bedroom and shuts the door. An embarrassed Rebecca sits on the sofa in the living room. Within a few minutes, Jason arrives with a pair of blue jeans on. He is wearing a short sleeved white button shirt. He is doing up the buttons.

"Sorry about that. I was running a little late" Jason say, leaving the top three buttons undone.

"It’s alright. I shouldn’t have entered."

"No, it’s alright. Really." Jason says smiling at her.

Rebecca stands up. Jason moves closer and kisses her.

"Ready to go?" he asks.

Rebecca kisses Jason again. This time, it’s a more passionate kiss.

"Or, we can stay." he smiles at her.

"No. I’m ready." Rebecca gasps, realizing that she is leading Jason on.

Jason grabs his coat, and they leave the house.

Scene 4
Setting: An Undisclosed Location

Vinny and Daisy sit on the bed. Vinny is laying back, and Daisy is on the edge.

"I was at Wild Night, the night of the wedding." Vinny begins, telling Daisy the story of he is alive. "It seemed everyone was angry with me for some reason or another. But I didn’t care. I was drowning my sorrows in vodka."

Daisy continues to watch Vinny. She realizes that Vinny’s in a daze, as if he is watching the night replay in front of him.

"The party was winding down, but I wanted to stay. I didn’t want to go home to Meggan. We had fought earlier that night. So I went upstairs...to Cory’s office. I knew I could stay there and drink. And be alone with my thoughts.

"When I got there, the door was unlocked. I entered and turned on the radio. I sat in the sofa and just drank my vodka. And thought about my life, and how it was going wrong. My train of thought was interrupted when I thought I heard someone enter the club. I called out from the office, but no one responded. I thought nothing of it, and went back to my vodka. Instead of sitting this time, I walked over and was looking out the window. I remember how beautiful the city looked. Filled with evening lights. It was late, so there was little traffic. And then..." Vinny pauses.

"And then...what?" Daisy asks.

"I was stabbed. I don’t remember a lot. I just remember a sharp pain in my back. The next thing I remember, I was laying in a bed. A woman named Patricia was taking care of me. She nursed me back to health."

"Patricia? Patricia who?" Daisy asks.

"I don’t know her last name. I don’t know why she helped me. I don’t know all the details from what happened after I was stabbed until I woke up. But I’m grateful." Vinny says.

"This is amazing Vinny." Daisy says.

"I know. Can you imagine how everyone will feel, when I reveal myself?"

"No one knows?"

"No." Vinny smiles.

"When will you tell them?"

"All in good time, all in good time." Vinny smiles.

"Do you know who stabbed you?" Daisy asks.

Vinny looks at her, the smile gone from his face.

"Sorry. I didn’t mean to upset you." Daisy replies nervously. Daisy quickly realizes she needs to change the subject. "Can you help me get out of here?"

"I could. But what would you do for me?" Vinny asks.

Daisy is stunned. "I don’t know? What....wait! I won! I won the election, Vinny! I’m the mayor. I could do whatever you wanted. As long as you help me get out of here!"

Vinny looks at her and smiles again. "You’ve got yourself a deal."

Scene 5
Setting: Twin Peaks General Hospital; Victoria’s Office

Victoria sits in her medium sized office at her desk. She is typing some files into her computer. She is interrupted by her phone buzzing.

"What is it Marion?" she asks her secretary.

"There is a woman here to see you. About the new hospital program." Marion replies.

"Send her in." Victoria says, shutting off the speaker phone.

Victoria hears a knock on the door. "Come in." she calls. The woman enters. Victoria stands up and stretches out her hand, so she can shake the woman’s hand.

"I’m Dr. Victoria Franky. It’s nice to meet you."

The women shake hands.

"Helen. Helen Mills." Helen replies sitting down. "Let me cut to the chase, Dr. Franky."

"Call me, Victoria please."

"Victoria. I work in White Cove, at the high school. The program we are trying to work out is to allow high school students come to the hospital. To help with elderly patients, or to volunteer. Really whatever needs to be done." Helen says.

"I think it’s a wonderful idea. I know the nurses would love the extra help."

Helen is about to say something, when Victoria’s door opens. Adam enters the office.

"Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t realize you were busy right now." Adam says.

Helen turns around, and locks eyes with Adam. A smile comes across Helen’s face.

"Adam! Can you wait? We need to talk." Victoria says. "Oh, how rude of me. Adam, this is Helen Mills. Helen, this is Adam Black."

Helen walks over and shakes Adam’s hand. "Nice to meet you" she winks at him.

"And you." Adam replies.

"I’ll give you to some time. Dr..., I mean Victoria, I’ll leave my number with your secretary." Helen says leaving.

Outside the office, Helen smiles. "Adam Black, huh."

Jason drives into his driveway. Rebecca is sitting next to him. He stops the truck, and looks at Rebecca.

"Thanks for dinner. It was nice." Rebecca smiles.

Rebecca pulls back. "Why don’t we just go inside." she smiles.

Jason smiles at her. "Really?"
