Tear Jerker / Speak

  • Melinda becomes a great big woobie once you realize why she's so quiet and isolated. Everyone hates her for what she did at the party, and Andy (the cause of her suffering) is the jerkass of all jerkasses to her, knowing quite well that she's near-mute.
    • And then it comes full circle when Andy decides for a round two.
  • Melinda's rape, and how!
    • The movie version cranks it Up to Eleven, where you can hear Melinda screaming as she is being raped.
  • Melinda finally works up the courage to tell Rachel that the reason that she called the cops at the party was because she was raped. Rachel believes her...until Melinda tells her who did it. It's Andy Evans, Rachel's boyfriend.
