Luke, Holly & Robert #21 February 17 - March 28, 1983 Ė 8 hrs
Holly meets with her OB-GYN. When Robert shows up at the hospital to question Alan, he is surprised to learn she is there for an appointment. She says she didnít want to bother him, as she knows how busy he is with the investigation. He assures her that he could have taken time off to come with her to the appointment and assures her that he wants to be involved.
Robert meets Grant, he tells Robert that he is staying at the Quartermaines and waiting for his fiancť to arrive in town. Robert questions Alan and directly asks him if he shot Susan Moore. Alan insists he didnít. Robert tells him that ballistics identified the gun as belonging to Alan and he asks when he last saw the gun? Alan says it is in a locked drawer in the den and he hasnít looked at it in ages. As soon as Robert leaves, he calls Edward and fills him in.
Bobbie asks Holly how the arrangement is working out? Holly says it is working well. Bobbie tells her that Robert was quite the swinging bachelor and asks if anything is happening there. Holly says he can still be a swinger just not with her, that Robert knows how much she loved Luke. After Bobbie is called away, Holly flashes back to moments over the past few months of her relationship with Luke.
Robert begins to question Grant about whether he has seen a gun at the Qís and about Susan Moore. Monica interrupts and suggests that Robert address his questions about Susan to her and not bother her houseguest.
Robert arrives at the Qís and Edward says he canít find the gun and it must have been stolen. He rushes out, leaving Robert alone with Stella. He asks Stella who had access to the den around Susanís death. She says just the Qís. Then she suddenly remembers that Scotty was there and went into the den to get a pen out of the desk drawer. Robert is thrilled with this bit of info and tells Stella that he loves her.
Back home, Robert and Holly have breakfast together. He tells her this case is enough to drive a man to drink. She asks if she can help him? He then lays out the whole case and all the suspects from Alice Grant, Scotty, and the Quartermaines. Later, Burt teases Robert and asks if he is coming into work today or if he is staying home playing video games in his new room.
Robert meets with Susanís banker; he tells him that her signature on the forms giving Scott Baldwin Power of Attorney were forged. The banker surmises that this authority gave Scotty access to Jasonís trust fund to invest as he chooses.
Holly stops in at Kellyís and talks with Rose and Leslie. Talk turns to Susanís murder, and Leslie mentions Alice coming into Kellyís that night. Rose doesnít remember seeing her and Leslies says it was while she was outside during a delivery. Holly gets on the phone and tracks down when the truck was there and she was able to pinpoint Aliceís whereabouts at 9:10. She surmises that when the time of Susanís murder is established that this could eliminate Alice as a suspect.
Holly heads to Robertís office and shares her information with him. Burt comes in and tells them that they believe the time of death around 9:20 so this eliminates Alice as a suspect. Robert believes that Scotty maybe the person responsible for Susanís murder!
Tiffany finds a note that Susan wrote reminding herself to call her attorney about Scottyís forgery of the POA. She puts it in her purse and forgets about it. She joins Robert and Holly for lunch. Jackie goes over to the Qís and grills them under the pretense of doing an interview. Then Robert shows up and tortures Alan, Monica, and Edward with more questioning. Robert then questions Grant about his conversations with Susan. Grant reports one particular conversation, which he felt referenced Susan attempting to get revenge against Scotty (complete with flashbacks).
Robert then finds Steve Hardy in the cafeteria and questions him about a conversation he had with Alice the night that Susan died. Robert then goes to the Waterfront Clinic and questions them about the conversation they had with Alice the night Susan died. He leaves more convinced than ever that Scotty wanted Susan dead. Robert brings Scotty in for questioning and winds up holding him on suspicion of murder and off to jail Scotty goes.
The next morning, Robert tells Holly that he knows the reason she does so much running around. She admits that it is to keep her mind off things. He asks if it helps her to forget? She says no that she will never forget. Later, Bobbie stops by and Hollyís frenetic energy concerns Bobbie. Bobbie keeps suggesting that Holly sit down and relax, as she is running around, running up and downstairs to get the baby clothes, and then to show Bobbie her new maternity clothes. She goes to drag over the cradle and Bobbie rushes over to help her and cautions her to be careful.
Holly then receives a very heavy package. Bobbie canít believe this is from more shopping? Holly tells her that she misses Luke so much that if she doesnít keep busy she will go crazy! Bobbie says she didnít mean to criticize her, she is just concerned. Bobbie tells Holly to please slow down and relax and take it easy.
When Holly does sit for a moment, she is looks sad and ďCome to MeĒ plays repeatedly in the background (indicating that she is thinking of Luke). She continues to run up and down the stairs, takes up the heavy cradle, and then runs up again to take up the babyís clothes. She then opens the very heavy box and proceeds to lift the rather ugly thing out of it (donít know what it is except it is very heavy). After setting it on a table, she pauses and holds her stomach in some discomfort. She cancels her OB appointment, saying she is feeling tired and is going to take the doctorís advice and relax. She reschedules for the next day.
Bobbie tells Ruby about her concerns about Hollyís state of mind. She tells Ruby how Holly is racing around and overdoing it with the shopping. Bobbie tells Ruby that it isnít healthy the way that Holly is running around. Ruby says that Holly is just missing Luke. Bobbie says that Holly talks about Luke like he is still alive and she expects him to walk through the door any day, that she is acting like she is still with him. Ruby defends that in Hollyís heart, she still is with Luke.
Robert returns home to find Holly lying on the couch. He asks her if she is all right. She assures him that she is. He tells her that she is pale and asks again if she is sure she is okay? She starts to tell him about lifting the thing (I have no idea what that is!), the doorbell rings and Robert is interrupted.
Bobbie learns that Holly cancelled her appointment and heads over to check up on her. She doesnít think Holly looks good. Holly says she is fine but she did something stupid. Bobbie guesses that she took the cradle upstairs by herself? She admits she did. Bobbie then observes that she took ďthat thingĒ out of the box (LOL, she doesnít know what it is either!). Holly admits that she learned her lesson, that she got a pain. Bobbie is immediately concerned, she asks if Holly has spotted? Holly admits she has a little bit but the pain is better since she has been lying down. Bobbie orders Robert to get an ambulance that Holly could be having a miscarriage.
Holly is heavily sedated, and Robert paces at the hospital. He is disturbed by Jackieís article that a note left by Susan ties him to her murder. He orders that Jackie be picked up and escorted to GH so he can question her. He sits by Hollyís beside, waiting. The doctor tells him to get some sleep, as she will be sedated at least another 24 hours. Bobbie is ticked to see Robert working and snips at him. She stomps away from him, and he grabs her arm and asks her what is going on? She jumps all over him that he doesnít care about the child, as it isnít his, basically blaming him. He is furious and reminds her of the reason he married Holly was to keep her in the country and give Lukeís child a home in this world. She is immediately contrite and tries to apologize but he just walks away.
When Jackie arrives, he questions her about her article. She shows him the note she found on the floor of Heatherís. Bobbie and Ruby wait by Hollyís beside and then go outside. Bobbie is angry at Robert about him running around playing cops and robbers. Ruby defends Robert that he was with Holly all night. Bobbie is blaming Robert again that he didnít take better care of Holly. Ruby stops her and reminds her that when he married Holly it was very unselfish and they both owe him for that. Ruby believes Bobbie is jealous that Robert is married to Holly instead of Luke. Bobbie cries over how much she misses her brother and wants him to come home. She realizes she owes Robert an apology.
Robert grills Heather about the note and catches her in a lie when Tiffany calls and tells him that she found the note in Heatherís jewelry box. She finally admits she took the note to protect Scott and he holds her on suspicion of murder as well as Scott.
Holly has complications and begins having pain. Ruby asks Jesse to call Robert. He receives an urgent message that Holly has taken a turn for the worse and he heads for the hospital.
We finally see Luke again; he is bitter and very uncooperative with his physical therapy. When the therapist tries to massage his legs, Luke screams at him to never touch his legs. He says that he was told he wonít walk again and he doesnít want to live in a fantasy world that anything is going to change there. Luke talks with Jed in the recreation room. He tells him that he will be released soon. Jed asks where he will go but Luke doesnít know, as he doesnít have any family to return to. Jed invites him to come to his place and help out. Luke bristles and says he doesnít want any charity. Jed says he isnít offering any, that it is a hard life in the mountains and he will need Luke to do all the things that Jed doesnít have time for.
Back at GH, Dr. Mason assures Robert that Holly is resting and that is the best thing for her. She urges him to go back to work. Bobbie comes up and apologizes to Robert; she also supports him going back to work and promises to call him with any news. Just as he leaves, Holly begins having extreme pain and cries for her baby.
The mountain doctor has had it with Lukeís attitude. He tells him he is fine and he is being released that day. He can go to the state facility if he has nowhere else to go. He accuses Luke of being selfish and that eventually he will get sick of life in the state facility and call his family to come get him, just as they are moving on with their lives. He seems to know that Luke has allowed his family to believe he is dead.
Dr. Mason does a sonogram to check on the baby. Amy blurts out to Ruby that the doctor thinks that Holly may have had a miscarriage. Ruby rushes in, and waits anxiously for the sonogram results. She asks if Bobbie has called Robert yet, Bobbie says she hasnít had time and will after the sonogram.
Robert continues questioning Heather and tries to get her to turn stateís evidence against Scotty but he doesnít get anywhere with her. Luke tells Jed that he accepts his offer and actually seems happy for a moment to get out of the hospital. Jed takes him back with him to his mountain cabin where Luke is able to make himself useful and start a fire.
Dr. Mason tells Ruby and Bobbie that Holly has miscarried and has to have a D&C. They suggest it will be easier if they tell Holly. A rather blunt Bobbie tells Holly that her baby is dead! When Holly gets hysterical, Bobbie pretty much yells at her that it is over, and to get over it! (Geesh could the girl have five minutes to grieve!).
Robert is finally told that Holly has had a miscarriage and he runs out of the PCPD (we never see him arrive though, in the next scene it is the next morning and he is home). Dr. Mason tries to assure Holly that she will be able to have more children with her husband. Robert visits her and he also urges her to move forward. She canít see any future for herself. He reminds her they have to stay married for a year for her own sake.
Robert has invited Alan, Edward, and Monica to his home for cocktails and inquisition. Edward tries to get out of it but Robert wonít take no for an answer. While there, Robert gets the Qís to admit that Heather was blackmailing them. Monica asserts that Lila had an affair with a married man (before Edward) and that they would like to keep it quiet to protect her reputation. Robert knows they are still withholding. He investigates Lilaís background and discovers that she was married and has never divorced!
Heather changes her story again. This time she tells him that she entered the house, she heard the shot and hid in the closet, and while hiding she saw Monica Quarter Maine, that she murdered Susan! Robert questions Stella and she gives him a clue. He then demands to see Monica and grills her. He figures out that she really wasnít in her room and suggests she killed Susan to protect Lila. She insists that she didnít but when faced with his evidence against her, she admits that she did go to the Susanís house to talk to her woman to woman to try to protect Lila. She insists that she didnít see Susan that she saw Heather outside and so Monica didnít approach.
He tells her that Heather was inside the couch hiding in an upstairs closet and saw Monica the minute after the gun went off. Monica is indignant that he would believe that she killed Susan. Heather then makes an anonymous call to search the Quartermaine basement. He gets a search warrant and heads over there to the dismay of the Quartermaineís.
The next morning, Holly comes down and Robert is worried over her appearance. She is too depressed to make coffee, she isnít dressed and hasnít done her make up and looks awful. He tries to get her interested in the investigation but even that doesnít get any reaction from her. Robert believes that Susan was murdered to protect Lila from a blackmail scheme that threatened to reveal she is a bigamist. When Holly doesnít react or care at all he suggests that she snap out of it and move on with her life (geesh everyone is SO sympathetic).
A local shopkeeper comes to the door with a beautiful handmade blanket for the baby. Holly loses it and screams at the poor woman and runs out. Robert apologizes profusely, and explains that they lost the child. The poor woman is so sorry that she didnít know. When she leaves, Robert really lays into Holly that her behavior was inexcusable. He refuses to spend another year with her walking around like this sad sack, feeling sorry for herself. He says she is letting down Luke and his memory, as Luke believed in embracing life and going on, living fully, no matter what.
#21B Holly comes down and tries to talk to Robert while he is at the computer. He tells her he doesnít want to talk to her while she is still feeling sorry for herself. She tells him that she isnít feeling sorry for herself and is ready to face the world. He turns around and finds a gorgeous Holly in a snazzy outfit facing him. She thanks him for getting through to her, he asks doesnít she mean yelling at her? She says she needed it.
Holly heads off to Kellyís and catches up with the girls. She runs into Jimmy Lee and he tells her it was a good thing he was in jail the night of Susanís murder or he would have been a suspect. She returns home and fills Robert in. He tells her that itís nice to have her help, that he enjoys discussing cases with her. Robert learns that both Crane and Jimmy Lee were in jail the same night.
Robert catches Alan in a lie and gets him to admit that he left the hospital before 9:00 and that he too went to the cottage. He tells Robert that when he arrived at Susanís, he saw Alice leaving, crying hysterically, and heard Susan arguing with Scotty. Alana says he turned and left.
Robert later gets Edward to admit that he too went to Susanís that night and he also heard her arguing with Scotty and so he didnít go in. Robert tries to shock Edward by asking him about Crane Toliver. Edward plays ignorant though Robert isnít buying it. Robert brings up Jimmy Lee and Edward admits he is his son. Robert questions Robert about Crane Toliver. Edward claims he never heard of the man. Robert takes him over to his computer and shows him the evidence that Lila is still married to Crane. Edward denies this but says the divorce papers were destroyed.
Next, Jimmy Lee arrives to be questioned much to Edwardís dismay. He returns home and tells Alan and Monica that Jimmy Lee is about to hang them with his knowledge and if he doesnít that he is going to demand a fortune to be kept quiet.
The next morning, the Quartermaines are shocked to see the headlines about Monica bluffing the commissioner and why hasnít she been arrested for Susanís murder. A ticked off Robert arrives at the newspaper office and lays into Ian Shelton for publishing this garbage. Ian accuses Robert of taking a bribe to cover up Monicaís guilt!
Robert goes back to the PCPD and asks the sergeant whether Jimmy Lee Holt had any contact that night with Crane Toliver. He reports that they had eye contact when they were both released and seemed to know each other. Robert heads back to GH, Leslie tells him that Dante and Grant saw Jimmy Lee at Susanís and they seemed rather friendly and Susan was very happy after their meeting. He questions Grant and Dante about this next.
Monica holds a press conference to dispute the allegations that she was involved in Susanís murder. She says that Robert has been conned by a notorious liar, Heather Webber! She reminds the reporters that Heather was institutionalized for her involvement in the murder of Diana Taylor. She claims that The Herald is engaging in a smear campaign.
Robert brings Jimmy Lee in for questioning and asks how he knew Susan Baldwin? Jimmy Lee contends that he didnít know her. He continues that Susan called and wanted to meet him. He reports that she suggested some scheme to get revenge against the Quartermaineís and wanted to see if he was interested in joining her? He claims that while he has no loyalty towards the Qís, he has no interest in any revenge plan. Robert wants details about the plan but Jimmy Lee claims he didnít want to know any of the details, as he didnít want to be involved.
Robert calls Holly and tells her he will be home soon to go through Susanís things that he had delivered to his house. Holly says that she has already started going through them. When Robert gets home, Holly has found evidence of Susanís involvement with Crane Toliver. Robert is thrilled with her find and realizes that Crane was the one blackmailing the Qís and that Susan was the go between.
Bobbie stops by the Scorpioís and watches the interplay between Robert and Holly. Robert tells Holly that he needs her agile brain to go over some new information. She offers that her brain is all his! Bobbie forces her self to bite her tongue but she definitely looks like she is gritting her teeth. Robert tells Bobbie that Holly has been very helpful in his work.
After Bobbie leaves, Robert tells Holly that Alice is on her way over. He would like Holly to stay, as Alice might be less intimidated with Hollyís presence during the interrogation. Robert tells Holly that the Qís are sticking with their stupid story as to the reason they were being blackmailed. Holly points out that they are probably sticking with it as they think Robert believes it.
Robert has pulled up a very young Crane Toliverís mug shot. He has the police artist age the photo. Robert is at Jimmy Leeís when Crane Toliver walks in! The next morning, we learn that Robert has had him arrested. Burt tells Robert that the real Crane Toliver has been found dead. Robert is puzzled as he has him locked up. The fingerprints match the guy locked up but the police sergeant has identified the dead guy as Crane Toliver, the guy they had arrested the night of Susanís murder. Robert realizes that Crane had someone impersonate him and get arrested giving the real Crane an alibi.
Robert confronts Crane and lays out his suspicions, that Crane was still married to Lila and he was using that information to blackmail the Qís. Robert suggests that Crane had gotten Susan involved in the scheme but that something went wrong and she backed out and Crane killed her!
Robert confronts Heather, realizing she set up Monica with the evidence she left in the basement. He accuses her of perjury by saying she saw Monica in the house after the gunshot. He then accuses her of breaking and entering at the Qís in order to plant the evidence. She tries to bluff her way out of it and says he has no proof that she called in the tip. He points out that he never said the tip came by telephone and asks how she would know that if she didnít make the call?
Monica is thrilled to hear a radio report announcing that Heather has recanted her witness statement indicting Monica! Crane gets nervous when he hears the same news report that goes on to mysteriously hint at a new witness coming forward.
Holly asks Bobbie if she is going to the Quartermaine party? Bobbie doesnít really want to go as she isnít really friends with the Qís (doesnít move in the same social circle). Holly convinces her to go and suggests they go shopping in NY and buy new dresses for the party. Later, Bobbie hints that something might be happening between Holly and Robert, living alone together in the same house. Holly denies that anything is happening. Bobbie says that something is happening with Holly, she is glowing and bubbly again.
Bobbie also points out that when the two cute guys tried to hit on them at lunch that Holly wasnít interested. Holly points out that she is married! Bobbie reminds her that it is in name only. She asks if Robert would object to Holly going out with other men? Holly says she doesnít know as she has never asked Robert. When Bobbie pushes the issue, Holly declares it has never been an issue. She says she didnít fancy either of the guys at brunch and that is why she wasnít interested. Bobbie apologizes again.
Holly and Robert discuss the Q party. She comments that it is all very Agatha Christi with the men in tuxes, and the women in evening gowns, and she is expecting the big reveal. He cautions that it could get dangerous that evening. Later, he stands at the bottom of the stairs and watches intently as she descends. He admires, ďYou look absolutely stunning!Ē (This is the first time we really get the feeling that he is attracted to Holly, other than admiring her as a beautiful woman but as something deeper). She teases back, ďI have to be to keep up with you!Ē
Holly is thrilled to be reunited with Celia Quatermaine, they were friends in boarding school. Edward interrupts the party to introduce everyone to his son, Eric, otherwise known as Jimmy Lee Holt! Jimmy Lee meets Celia. She later begs Holly to protect her from boredom until Grant arrives as she has spent far too much time that evening with Jimmy Lee.
Meanwhile, Heather is down at Susanís cottage, sitting alone during the storm that is raging. Crane breaks in and confronts her. He realizes she saw him that night at Susanís and she can testify that he is the person who killed Susan. He accuses her of being the mystery witness. He goes after Heather to kill her so that she canít testify against him. She is able to get away from him and runs up to Susanís bedroom where she holds him off for a bit. When he gets in and comes at her with a knife, she offers to recant her testimony. She tries to talk her way out of it.
Crane winds up blabbing all, including how he set up a local drunk to be him and spend a night in the drunk tank thereby giving him a fool proof alibi (the PCPD doesnít fingerprint drunks), he details the events leading up to Susanís murder (complete with flashbacks of what actually happened).
Just as it appears Crane will kill Heather, Robert and his officers burst in and arrest Crane. Robert commends Heather that she did good work and another officer confirms that they got Craneís confession on tape. Robert thanks Heather for everything she did to help catch Crane. He observes she must love Scotty an awful lot. Scotty arrives just as the lights go out, and with the door wide open, Crane uses the distraction and makes a break for it. Robert shoots him but he is able to get away.
Holly interrupts and pulls Celia away when she finds her yet again in conversation with Jimmy Lee. Grant has arrived and Celia rushes into his arms and kisses him as a saddened Jimmy Lee looks on. He is bitterly disappointed to learn she is engaged. He goes outside to sit, and an injured Crane stumbles upon him. Crane mutters to him to take the papers and hide them and collapses.
Jimmy Lee brings the injured Crane into the Quartermaine living room. The doctors rush to his aid and an ambulance is called though with the flooding from the storm it will be delayed in arriving. Robert searches Craneís pockets, his jacket, and then asks Jimmy Lee if Crane dropped anything. He responds no, he didnít see anything. Robert has an officer to with Jimmy Lee to retrace their steps and see if they can find anything. Celia asks Holly about Jimmy Lee, obviously attracted to him.
Scotty arrives and lays into Robert for putting Heather in danger. He makes not so veiled threats about Robert losing his job for this! Monica tells both Heather and Scotty to leave. Robert defends that Heather was a big help to him, Monica really doesnít care. Robert tells Holly that not all the pieces are in place as the Qís are still acting very suspiciously.
Robert searches Craneís room but no sign of the papers. Robert then goes to question Toliver before he goes into surgery. Robert demands that he tell him where the papers are! Crane says that the Quartermaine money can even buy the police commissioner. Robert growls that nobody buys him. Crane says that Robert wants the papers so he can cover it all up. Robert is kicked out as Toliver is off to surgery.
Robert questions Jimmy Lee. He suspects that Jimmy Lee was in on the scam with Crane, that he knew about the papers. Robert believes that Crane found Jimmy Lee after being shot and gave him the papers. Jimmy Lee denies having them though he does admit to knowing about the papers.
After surgery, Crane is in grave condition. Robert goes into to talk to him and asks him again where the papers are? They are the divorce papers that he is using to blackmail the Qís. Robert is told later that Crane has died. Robert heads to Jimmy Leeís office and pushes him to admit that Crane gave him the papers. Jimmy Lee continues to deny he has the papers. Robert is sure that Crane gave them to him; he doesnít believe he would die without passing those papers on to someone and Jimmy Lee was the last person who saw him alive!
Edward shows up at the Scorpioís looking for Robert. He is very warm and kind to Holly, trying to ingratiate himself with her. She reminds him that when he first met her that he called her a thief and a crook! Edward apologizes profusely and points out that he had just lost a considerable amount of money and he was upset.
Robert holds a press conference detailing Craneís blackmailing activities, his collusion with Susan and when their deal went sour that he killed her. Robert hands out the transcript of Craneís confession as told to Heather Webber and then reports that Crane has died. Ian of course wants to know what the extortion was about? What was the connection between Crane and the Quartermaineís? Alan and Monica watch terrified about what Robert might say. The press spot Edward and jump on him with the questions about what the extortion was about? Edward refuses to answer and Ian warns him that he works for an investigative paper and he will dig till he finds the truth!
Holly has lunch with Celia and she asks how Holly met Robert? She wants to know if Holly was ďturned onĒ by him when she first met him? Holly says that yes he is attractive. Celia corrects her and says Robert is a real hunk! An embarrassed Holly changes the subject and turns the topic back to her and Grant. Holly invites Celia to come over; Celia suggests that Holly have a cocktail party tomorrow! When Robert arrives home, Holly runs the idea by him and he is very enthusiastic.
The next day the guests begin arriving: Ruby & Dan, Rose & Rick, Bobbie & Tiffany, Grant & Celia, the mayor & his wife, Rick & Rose, Audrey & Steve, Claudia & though understandably the rest of the Qís send their regrets. Celia questions Holly about those who arenít attending, most likely trying to get info on the absent Jimmy Lee. Later, Celia and Grant are about to leave when Jimmy Lee shows up and suddenly Celia is feeling much better and wants to stay. They socialize a bit but as soon as Jimmy Lee leaves, Celia is suddenly ready to go as well.
Luke is finally seen again as he is in the mountains still feeling sorry for himself as ďCome to MeĒ plays while he mopes around the cabin. Jed tries to get him to try to use the crutches and to try to walk again. Luke refuses saying his legs are worthless.
Later that night, Robert and Holly sit together on the couch. Robert tells her that he was very proud of her that night. He tells her that he had so much fun entertaining that night. When Holly gets up to go to bed, she is quite tipsy and loses her balance so Robert helps her upstairs. They stand upstairs in the hallway in the dark. He tells her he would like to see her very tipsy, and loose (LOL!). She suggests that he look very closely as she is quite tipsy as this is it as more than this and she passes out. They are both giggling together, revealing in the success of their party. Robert walks her to her door and softly says, ďI want to thank you for a wonderful evening.Ē He is obviously drawn to her and stands outside her door, lost in thought. He walks back downstairs; seemingly disturbed by the emotions he had for her.
Luke tries standing but his legs give out and he falls. The crutches knock over a pain of boiling water and Luke screams in pain that his leg hurts. Then he realizes that he is feeling pain in his leg and beings crying for joy!
Connie Townley arrives at the Scorpioís looking for ďRobbieĒ. She asks if Holly is his secretary, as she doesnít look like the maid? Holly proudly clarifies that she is his wife! Connie is quite shocked by this news and apologizes for barging in. She asks if Holly can have ďRobbieĒ call her, as she will be in town for a bit. Holly a bit taken back Connieís familiar attitude asks if this is for business or pleasure? Connie admits that it is for both reasons, as she canít pass up this chance to catch up with her old friend. Holly surmises that Connie knew him from his WSB days.
When Robert returns home, he grins when Holly tells him that Connie has arrived and left him a message. Holly tells him that Connie was stunned to learn that he was married. He asks her to let him explain, he tells her that they were just friends. Holly teases him that she is sure they worked very closely together. Robert blushes and Holly laughs at him for it, as she has never seen him do that before. He stumbles over the words as he asks her to let him explain. She reminds him that no explanation is necessary as their marriage is in name only.
Connie calls and makes plans to meet with Robert. She tells him she isnít surprised that he is involved with the police department and that is one of the reasons she needs to see him. She tells him it is very important. Robert tells Holly about the meeting, and he tells her it is business. He confirms that Connie is one of the WSBís best agents. He tries to explain again to Holly about his relationship with Connie and what time he will be home (very much acting like a husband who is about to get into trouble for seeing another woman). Holly cuts him off and assures him that he doesnít owe her any explanations.
He meets with Connie and they catch up. She tells him that she was sorry to hear about OíReilly. They reminisce about old missions and adventures together, Istanbul, Amsterdam, Munich, Capri, Osaka, Rio, ect. Connie is very mysterious about why she is in town. She asks him if she could use his computer? She canít talk yet about why she is in town but will tell him more when she gets more information.
Robert returns home and they talk about Connie. She says it is obvious that Robert and Connie had something going. Holly assures him she would be fine if he sees another woman, she expects it. He asks if she is sure about that? What if he wanted to spend the night somewhere else? He assures her that he would be discreet and wouldnít do anything to embarrass her. She assures him that his private life is his own and she would be fine with it. As she walks away, he looks oddly disappointed in her reaction.
