Main Characters in this Episode
Ikey: Minus the last few months, we've been friends for almost 20 years. I know that because every time I look in the mirror and see my bent nose, it reminds me of how I met Owen Rowan's elbow on the playground, before I met the rest of him. I just moved to the Ridge. I didn't know Jack from Jill. I remember, he felt so bad afterwards, I was just some grimy kid with a wad of toilet paper up his nose but you introduced me to your friends - and that changed everything. I wasn't David Eichorn anymore. I was Ikey. That's how Owen introduced me to you guys. I was Ikey. And Ikey's all I've ever been. You guys are a part of me. Nick, remember these skid marks? Huh? Yeah, when you dared me to ride down North Hill Road on my bike during a storm. And this gimpy pinky finger huh, Phys? I got this from those home made fire crackers you told me were 100% safe. I got my man Eddie Latekka of course, to thank for my best pick up line. [Rolls up left sleeve and reveals a scar] I tell all the girlies I got this in Desert Storm from a bayonet when actually, you just nicked me with a hedge trimmer. I know, we've come a long way since that playground, Owen. You brought me into the fold back then. I'm hoping you'll let me back in now. I can't lose you guys anymore than I can lose my own skin. You're who I am! I'm Ikey because of you guys. And while maybe, Ikey ain't so much, he's a lot less when he ain't got you guys in his life.
