Heartwarming / Flight 29 Down

  • In Scratch (Season 1, Episode 13) one of the most heartfelt scenes takes place between Melissa and Jackson:
    Melissa: Listen to me! Whatever happened back home doesn't matter!
    Jackson: Yes it does. *tearful* Don't you see? Whether I like it or not; it follows me...
    Melissa: ....
    Jackson: You wanna know what happened? I walk home, to my own neighborhood, to tell them about this...this amazing adventure to the South Seas I was going on. And yeah, yeah I was braggin'. Y'know, I just wanted them to know that I was doing something worthwhile for a change.
    Melissa: What's wrong with that?
    Jackson: They said that I changed. That I was throwing in their faces that suddenly I was better then them. I thought I was talking to people who actually cared...
    Melissa: So what happened?
    Jackson: One guy stood up to me. One guy. He got shoved, and a fight broke out. I tried to break it up but someone pulled a knife and....
    Melissa: [stunned]
    Jackson: ...he got hurt. Perfect, huh?
    Melissa: Was he okay?
    Jackson: Yeah. But now the cops are after me.
    Melissa: But if it wasn't your fault-!
    Jackson: It doesn't matter. I was there. I wasn't supposed to be...and someone got hurt. Strike three. *chokes up* Where am I supposed to go now?!
    [Melissa hugs Jackson]
    Melissa: You're already there. Without you we'd be lost.
  • When Eric ends up collapsing due to succumbing to the shellfish allergy no one realized he had, Melissa is genuinely upset when she figures out what's wrong and the entire crew is truly relieved when it turns out she got the epi-pen into him just in time.
