"Melrose Place: Peanut Butter and Jealousy (#1.20)" (1993)

"Melrose Place: Boxing Sydney (#3.19)" (1995)
Martin Abbott: [to his large congregation] I was seven, and Robert was nine, and this one day we snuck Mom's car out of the driveway. Robert was going to drive first. He put his foot on the accelerator and floored it, and in about two seconds he lost control of the car and we careened into a tree. Robert was fine, but I hit my head on the dashboard and I was bleeding all over. He got really scared because I wasn't moving.
Rikki Abbott: Did you have a near-death experience?
Martin Abbott: No, I guess I was just stunned. Only Robert thought that I was dead. So... he left me there and ran away. And then, I remember waking up and seeing these... two strong arms lifting me out of the wrecked car. It was a neighbor of ours, an older man named Mr. Rizzo. A bachelor. Never paid much attention to us kids, but he knew who I was and I knew who he was. He saw the accident and came to help me out of the car. He carried me home, but by that time Robert was already there and he told my parents that "I" was the one who stole the car. "I" was the one driving when we had the accident, and that "I" forced him along with me. So, here I am, in my parents living room, with a serious head wound, being held by this neighbor, feeling so warm and safe, looking down at Robert who was looking at me so smug because he knew that I was going to get a beating, and that I was going to be punished... not him. Then I looked over at my father, a psychopath just like Robert, because he always took my brother's side against me. In that instant, I realized that I'd never felt loved and protected like this by my own family. At that very moment, I knew I could never trust them to take care of me again. Nine years later, when I was old enough, I ran away. I had to leave.
Sydney Andrews: You still see them, don't you?
Martin Abbott: Never. I had to let them go because they never put their trust in me again since that day. The day that Robert lied to them about me stealing the car. I had to find the courage. Now, many more years later, I have a new home now. I have a new family... all of you... my family! We begin our journey tomorrow by taking the first step to release the chains of our painful past. Rest up. We have a very exciting day ahead of us. Sleep well. Go in well.

Jane Andrews Mancini: Sydney, where are you going?
Sydney Andrews: Vacation. A few days at least. I sure could use one.
Jane Andrews Mancini: You're not going anywhere, Sydney. You're out of work. And you have to meet with your probation officer next week.
[Rikki scoffs nearby]
Jane Andrews Mancini: [to Rikki] You find this funny?
Rikki Abbott: Yes, that you try to control her life when yours is such a mess.
Jane Andrews Mancini: Sydney, you are in big trouble for trashing Shooters and Mancini Designs. Jake and I were sent for evaluations. I can't lie for you.
Sydney Andrews: Jane, for the last time, I didn't trash Shooters, your dresses, or steal Jo's photo equipment. I don't know who did, but it wasn't me.
Jane Andrews Mancini: Drop the innocent act. You never tell the truth anymore.
Sydney Andrews: [to Rikki] Rikki, I didn't vandalize Shooters, or Jane's dresses. You belive me, don't you?
Rikki Abbott: Of course I do. That's why you don't need people like Jane in your life.
[a bus pulls up on the curve]
Rikki Abbott: That's them. Come on, Sydney.
Sydney Andrews: [to Jane] I'm not asking you to lie for me.
Jane Andrews Mancini: Sydney, for the first time, you must face up to this. You have no friends left. Your probation officer is the only person who can help you.
Sydney Andrews: Drop the weight, Jane. Worry about your own responsibilities. That's what I'm learning to do.

Sydney Andrews: See... I really have this like... really right-on instinct for it, for what people like. I just need the training. It's really exciting to have your whole life in front of you. This incredibly bright future. And all the possibilities, you know? You just have to pay for it. I'm going to be really important someday. I am, I really am.

Sydney Andrews: Bless me Father for I have sinned.
Priest: [voice-over] How long has it been since your last confession?
Sydney Andrews: I don't know, a long time. A couple of years.
[pause]
Sydney Andrews: I've lied... to my family, to my sister about what I'm doing. How I earn my money. I know I've hurt them by lying. I mean... it feels that way. You see, Father... I'm a prostitute. I give men sex for money. And I use drugs sometimes, too. To make it easier. It's a mess. And I am ashamed. I am so... ashamed.

Jane Andrews Mancini: No, I'm not! I'm not your sister, Sydney.
Sydney Andrews: What are you talking about?
Jane Andrews Mancini: Mom and Dad kept it a secret all these years. I just found out last week.
Sydney Andrews: What you mean, like I'm adopted or something?
Jane Andrews Mancini: No "I'm" adopted. I found out when I was home. They adopted me, and years later, they had you. Never told either one of us.

Sydney: Lauren, I'm sorry.
Lauren Etheridge: "I'm sorry" costs me, Sydney. You ever do that again, and I will see to it myself that whatever Roger Langdon might have done to you would be a walk in the park!

Sydney Andrews: [interrupting] All right! I did it. I put the pills in her drink. I just wanted to knock her out, that's all so that she'd be too passive, even for Michael. I never meant for this to happen. If anything happens to her, I'll never forgive myself. Oh God, Kimberly, what am I gonna do?
