So, are you curious about

those tests we did yesterday?

Kind of.

Did I do Well?

Oh, it shows that

you're recovering in quite

a short time span.

The Hallstein

psychological test I used

to help us decipher

the pluses and minuses

in your personality and

your mental state of health.

Stop with the lecture.

Did I pass or not.

Listen, Dawn, you're

going about this

with the wrong approach.

It's not a matter

of your passing that

we're concerned with.

But if you're well enough to

function outside this hospital.

This is bullshit.

Next you're gonna have me

running through some stupid

maze like a rat or something.

Just settle down.

You know that type of

behavior will get you nowhere.


- Okay, I wanted to

ask you some specifics

that the staff and I

thought were important.

It's about those

girls, isn't it?

Yes, it is, Dawn.

Now a lot of girls have been

placed in your position.

A tragedy that leaves

a sole survivor

in the middle of

complete destruction.

Now questions come up

about why the killer

spared their life.

Why a tornado wipes out one

side of the neighborhood

and not the other.

Now we've talked

about this before

and I wondering if you

have any ideas on this?

I never gave it much thought.

People die everyday

and I'm a realist.

Haven't you ever wondered

why you were never touched?

Bad things only

happen to good people.

You really believe that?

I always hated the

thought that people thought

if they went to church everyday

and lived a straight life,

they'd be immune to

what's out there.

That's bullshit.

Don't get me wrong, I miss

my friends and everything

but it's not gonna

bring them back.

You ever have any

nightmares about it?

It's all I had when

I first came here

but now only about once a week.

It's not so real.

Glad to hear there's

an improvement.

It's Amy who has a ton of them.

Could you describe

any of your dreams?

Well they're pretty tame.

I'm running from

house and I turn

and I see my dad's

house burning.

It's funny, I

haven't had that many

back at the boarding house.

That's not a good sign, Dawn.

It looks like your

subconscious is not ready

to let the rest of your

mind deal with the accident.

I thought you said

I was getting better?

You still have come down,

you are getting better.

But I'd be lying to

you if I said everyone

would be normal overnight.

Now, let's back to what

you were speaking of,

you still believe

that bad things happen

only to good people?

Look what happened to my family.

You mean the fire?

I mean how many

times do you tell me

it's not my fault that my

family died in that fire?

Easy, take it slow, Dawn.

If there's anything

that I feel bad about,

it's I'll never be able

to see my dad again.

You're father was in a very

dangerous line of business.

Now, you were just a child

amongst a family of gangsters.

You can understand

that, can't you?


But I feel helpless.

It said in the police

reports that your father

was in trouble with

your neighborhood gangs.

There was nothing you could do.

Yeah, well I know that now but

it's not easy to accept it.

That's why we're here.

You know, you'll never

know what it was like

to be a mafia princess.

I was treated with respect.

I mean, I was everybody's

little girl in the group.

My dad was so proud of

me after my mom was gone.

Those days are gone.

I thought you told me

that you hated your father?

I mean you said that

a number of times.

Yeah, like any kid does.

Elaborate for me.

Well, he was really

nice, until my mom died

and then he started

touching me in places

that I wasn't comfortable with.


Well did you ever tell

anyone about this?

Who could I?

The police hated our family

and nobody in the

group would help me.

But you still miss him?

Yeah, he was a nice

guy most of the time.

I think he was

most uncomfortable

when I bring my girlfriends in.


Did he ever touch any of them?


What really freaked him

out was when I'd bring

my boyfriends and I

screw them in my bedroom.

We fought about that a lot.

When did this first start?

I don't know, a long time ago.

I guess I was 12.

Do you ever believe this

early fascination with sex

was a way to get even

and punish your father?

He was away most of the time.

He was either in Vegas

or Jersey or somewhere.

I think he liked the

idea that there was a guy

in the house when he was gone.

You know, since you

told me a number of times

that most of the

work you father did

was for the mob,

do you ever have

feelings of guilt or

embarrassment about what he did

for a living?


So, am I gonna get out

of here soon or what?

There is a possibility.

You know, I have a bet

with Amy that I'll get out

before she does.

It's kind of a funny bet, huh?

Well, I'm glad the two

of you are working so hard.

How do you feel about Amy?

I like her.

She's like a sister I never had.

But I get mad at her sometimes.

Why is that?

Well, she can be tricky,

if you know what I mean.

No, no, go on.

Well, she ask me

to ask the other guys

for towels and stuff like that.

Have you ever told her that

she's being manipulative?

No, that would be really stupid.

She's my best friend.

Dawn, the only way you're

gonna get out of here

if you prove to us

that you're well enough

to be on your own.

I am on my own.
