ICU Episode: "The Truth Hurts"
Featuring the Quartermaines
Tuesday, August 21, 2007
Written by: Ryan Chandler & Tishy Smith
Port Charles picks up where we last left off. Kevin is about to reveal his relationship with Monica to the Quartermaine Family.
"Monica, it's ok. They're going to have to find out sooner or later, and I prefer sooner than later." Kevin pulls Monica close and kisses her cheek. "The reason why Monica wasn't here…is because she was with me."
The Quartermaine's exchange confusing and surprising glances as Kevin continues to speak. "Monica and I are in love. And we're going to be together for a very, very long time."
Everything Edward has been suspecting over the past few months is finally falling into place. The camera pans on the faces of everyone in the room, ending with alternating shots of Tracy, Monica & Kevin.
"You bitch," yells Tracy as she lunges for Monica! Tracy grabs Monica by the hair and begins tugging on it. Kevin pushes Tracy away from Monica and pulls her in close. Ned catches Tracy before she can fall. Dillon taps Kevin on the shoulder and slugs him in the face with a right hand.
"Don't you ever put your hands on my mother again you bastard!" yells Dillon. "Get out of here."
Ned and Dillon attempt to keep Tracy from beating the hell out of Monica. Jason strong arms Kevin to leave the room while they family meets to discuss. Kevin refuses to leave, but Jason lets Kevin know he doesn't really have a choice.
Meanwhile, Tracy goes into a verbal tirade against Monica. "You have no right to be here. After your affair, you have nothing else to do with this family!"
“I have every right to be here Tracy and you know it.” Monica stated as she walked past Tracy towards AJ. She hugged him and pretended that he didn’t stiffen. She walked over to Emily and tried to hug her but Emily avoided her.
"If you would just let me explain what happened, I think you'll understand where I'm coming from." After Tracy calms down, Edward tells Monica that the floor is hers to explain. Monica let's them know it's no secret that things have been tense between her and Alan for years. They tried to get into therapy but it wasn't working.
"I've wanted to end things for a very long time now, but just couldn't go through with it. Eventually I began visiting an online dating site after I pretty much decided Alan & I had no future together. That's where I met Kevin." Monica stops to look at the faces of the family she has hurt. No one will make eye contact with her. "I didn't know that he was Kevin at first. It was just general information and whatnot. He said he was coming into Port Charles on business and thought we should meet for a blind date…which I did."
"How long has this been going on?" asks Jason angrily, he looks over to his left to see Emily glaring at their mother.
"Since November….when Kevin came back to town."
"You slept with Kevin, and then you let Alan hire him back at GH. My god Monica, what a selfish person you are. You get to sleep with Kevin and live off Alan's money." Tracy snaps. "How typical of you."
"What happened….between you and Alan," Edward asks painfully. "Are you the reason why my son is in his hospital room fighting for his life?"
"No that's not what happened at all. I finally told Alan the truth. He was being so sweet to me and I couldn't take it anymore." Monica begins crying. "Here I am, having this secret life while my husband is completely oblivious to what's going on. I couldn't take his kindness towards me. I couldn't let him continue to go on believing we were going to be ok when I knew we weren't….so I told him the truth." The tears begin to fall down Monica's face faster. "I told him that I couldn't be trapped in a loveless marriage any longer. I told him.....it was over. We got into a huge fight and I left."
Tracy stands up from her seat and gets in Monica's face. "Get out. Get out of this room, get out of this hospital, and then you can get out of our house," says the angry sister with a monotonous tone. "How dare you show up here like nothing has happened? You are the reason that my brother is laying in a hospital bed!" Tracy yelled, pointing her finger in Monica’s face. She could feel the anger boiling to the surface and felt like she could break Monica right now. "None of us want you here so do us all a favor and go climb back into your lover’s bed!”
“Oh shut up Tracy! You are certainly not one to talk. You refused your father his heart attack pills or are you practicing selective memory again.”
"This is not about me," Tracy begins. "No matter what problems Alan and I have gone through, I have never stopped loving my brother."
Monica tried to sit down when Tracy grabbed her arm. “What?” Monica started to say, turning around and facing Tracy again.
Tracy reached back and slapped Monica hard across the face knocking her to the ground, all the while calling her a heartless whore. Edward yelled for them to stop it, that this wasn’t helping anything. He ordered Ned to take Tracy out of the room to cool down. Tracy barks at Ned to stay where he is. Monica gets up and slaps Tracy back, then pushes her against the wall. Tracy pushes Monica away, then punches her in the face. Tracy drags Monica by the hair and begins choking her against the wall. Epiphany walks in just in time to see the end result of Tracy choking Monica. Dillon and Ned grab their mother by the arm and forcibly dragged her out of the room, the whole time she was screaming that Monica was nothing but a whore.
Epiphany tells them all if they cannot act like civilized adults, then she'll be forced to throw them out of the hospital. She asks Monica if she's alright. Once Monica is able to breathe again, she says yes, and asks Epiphany in her ear to call the police.
Monica sat down, relieved that Tracy was gone. She looked around the room and noticed that no one would quite look her in the eye. In fact in was quite uncomfortable in the room. She asked what was wrong, was Alan all right? Emily remarked that it was finally nice of her to ask instead of fighting with Tracy. Monica demanded to know what she meant by that. Emily jumped up and said that maybe Tracy was right. The reason that her father was lying in the hospital in critical condition was Monica’s selfishness.
Jason finally glanced up and ordered Emily to stop. This wasn’t the time for them to be fighting. They had to concentrate on more important things. Emily turned to him and said no, this all happened because of Monica. She looks coldly into Monica’s eye. “Tracy is right about you. You are nothing but a whore. This is not the first time you've done this. Maybe…just maybe I could excuse one time, but this is Pierce Dorman all over again."
Emily chooses to mask her pain with anger. "You helped me deal with Nikolas' infidelity. You were the one who told me how painful it was to be on the receiving end of an affair. And yet mother, you do and do the same thing to father." Emily throws her hands up in disgust, but isn't ready to leave just yet. " In fact, <b>Monica</b>, I’m ashamed to call you mother. If my Father dies, you will be dead to me! Do you her me? Dead! Now I for one cannot stand the sight of you and want you to get out of here. Get out! " Jason grabs Emily and pulls her towards the other exit to cool her off.
Monica gasped and looked round the room. No one looked at her. No one spoke after Emily’s outburst. She silently got up and walked out.
Down at the Nurse's Station, Tracy finally pulls herself away from Ned.
"Don't you EVER do that to me again do you understand me," growls Tracy. "You are my child and you will do as I say, not the other way around."
Ned looks back forth as the visitors in the hospital begin to stare at them. "Be quiet mother, you're making a scene."
"No, the scene was upstairs. I can't BELIEVE that Monica had the gall to show her face after what she's done. She's lucky I didn't beat her like the little guttersnipe she is."
Ned continues to listen to Tracy rant until something catches his eye. Lt. Lucky Spencer, accompanied by 3 uniformed officers step off the elevator and make their way towards the mother/son pair.
"Uh oh," says Ned. "This is not gonna be good."
"What's not gonna be good?"
"Tracy," Lucky says as he reaches into his pocket. "I'm sorry but I have to take you in."
"For what? I haven't done anything wrong."
"We got a call that there was an incident here at the hospital. You're under arrest for assault. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law." Lucky continues to read Tracy her rights as she begins threatening the officers.
"You have got to be kidding me. I'm Tracy Quartermaine damn it. I'm responsible for most of the money you make." The officers cart Tracy away towards the elevator. "Ned! Ned! Get my attorney!"
Ned snickers to himself as the doors shut and Tracy is taken to the PCPD.
