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....
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?!
