The Train Scene (Episode 80)
Terry is waiting impatiently in the platform of Chicago station for
T: (thinking): Come on, what are you doing, did you not get my note? Why did I ever leave from that hospital this morning, why? Stupid, stupid, stupid…
S: Terry, shall we get inside the train now, it’s getting ready to leave.
T: You can get in if you want, Susanna, I promise I won’t try to stop you.
S: (thinking): OMG, he is waiting for that Candy! I absolutely must get him inside the train just in case she comes!
S: But… I can't go alone!
T: Why, can’t you walk?
S: I can’t go inside if you are out here!
T: You are saying this as if I am keeping you chained out here with me.
S: Terry… come on, let’s go inside.
T: (annoyed) What is your problem??? I am waiting for someone, OK?
S: (thinking): Oh no, oh no, oh no...
They hear the whistle blow at that moment.
S: (thinking) “Oh thank God, he will have to come inside now”. Come on, Terry let’s go in…
T: Oh, for goodness sake...
Terry gets on the train and it starts moving.
T: (thinking) Candy…
Susanna is watching him from inside the train.
S: (thinking) He is still thinking about her. I saw her last night, she is nothing to look at. Oh, what shall I do?
S: Terry, it’s not safe to stand on the deck won’t you…
T: Oh, will you just shut UP! What is your problem?
S: (starts crying). Oh, Terry I…
S: AH WHAT???
She sees Candy running beside the train calling Terry’s name who now smiles and looks very happy! Susanna is shuttered. But she is not giving up, she tries again.
S: Terry, come in to the tr…
T: GIVE IT UP WILL YOU???
S: Oh Terry… (she starts crying. Terry looks at her sideways.) I love you Terry… I want you to be with me not her… (she stretches her hands towards him).
Terry looks at her incredulously then shakes his head.
S: What Terry… no…
Terry turns his back on her and sees Candy in the distance sitting on the grass waving at him. Suddenly the train passes in front of a large pond. An idea crosses his head momentarily and he does not ponder on it at all.
T: I am getting off this train…
Terry jumps into the water, but…
T: Darn… it did not look that shallow…
Terry sits up and starts rubbing his nose, his forehead, his knees and a few other places on his body that hurt. His nose is actually bleeding. He hears her frantic voice…
C: (bending over him to examine him) Terry… Terry, are you OK?
T: (still trying to stop his nosebleed and rubbing his head) No, I am bloody not OK!
C: Oh Terry… (she throws herself in his arms and is holding him tight.) Terry I can’t believe you just jumped of the train…
T: (Hugging her back tight). I just could not leave without seeing you Freckles!
C: Oh Terry… (they hug again sitting in the dirty water).
S: (thinking while watching them and sobbing hysterically) Terry I can’t live without you, I can’t … I can’t let her have you… NO! I am going to get you out of her grasp…
C: Terry you are still bleeding you need to see someone who can help!
T: Gee, I wish a nurse was around…
C: OK, wait here I will go get one, the hospital is not very far…
T: I suppose you should know how far it is… you work there!
C: Oh… Yes!
At that moment a sickening noise, as if a large squashy something had hit the ground with force, came from the direction the train was going.
T: What the hell was that now?
C: No idea. Who cares! You are
here! With me!
T: I am here Freckles! And I am not leaving you again. You will take a transfer to a hospital in New York and come and live with me. You can take a transfer can’t you?
C: I can’t, but I am sure Uncle William can… Terry... will you kiss me?
T: I thought you’d never ask, my Freckles!
C&T kiss passionatelly.
Narration guy/lady: Terry and Candy were together at last. They felt the indestructible, imperishable, unbreakable, unyielding bond between them strengthen even more now that they were together. The future looked bright.
Susanna Marlowe thought she loved Terry and she attempted to jump of the train to take him off Candy’s arms. What she failed to realize was that the indestructible, imperishable, unbreakable, unyielding bond between Candy and Terry was indeed indestructible, imperishable, unbreakable and unyielding; and that she would not have managed to take Terry away from Candy even if she had realized when she decided to jump, that the train had now moved from the pond to concrete ground.
Her funeral was held 3 days later… she died unhappy...
