Katchoo goes to a food mart, still looking beat up, where she is watched with suspicion by the owner. In a rage Katchoo kicks in a glass display case and starts throwing the stock all over the place. The owner flees in terror after hitting the panic button. The police find Katchoo on the floor inside the ruined store, feeling sorry for herself.
It's Francine's birthday. Everyone tries to give her a good time at the pary, but she's thinking about Katchoo. Francine's mom and dad have a fight and he ends up going to his office on a Sunday night (or at least that's what he tells his wife).
Katchoo gets bailed out of jail by her mother. "What do I tell Ace?" she asks. Tell him to stop raping me, replies Katchoo. But her mother refuses to believe it. Katchoo repeats it again and again, he beat the hell out of her and then he raped her. Katchoo's mother doesn't want to hear anything negative about Ace. "Get in the car, Katina! We'll talk about it when we get home!" I don't have a home, Katchoo answers. She walks away, flipping the bird.
It's Francine's first day at school since the play. All the boys in school greet her with a cheer: "Toga! Toga! Toga!" The teacher says, if Miss Peters will kindly keep her clothes on for the duration of the class they can get started. Francine is so embarrased. But Freddy is interested. He tries to get something going between the two of them. In her locker Francine finds a note from Katchoo that says she's leaving tonight but she wants to see Francine at the practice field before she goes at 6:15pm.
Katchoo tells Francine she wants to go to Columbus Ohio to live with her aunt. Francine says she wishes she could go to a desert island where nobody saw the stupid play. Katchoo says she thinks they are already there. The name of the island is Paradise. Francine gives her some cookies. She's sad because she finally met her best friend, and then she moves away. Katchoo says she must go, but she promises to come back someday. And then she looks away, never looking back. And we see Francine many years later looking at this scene through the eyes of memory.
It's been ten years since Francine last saw Katchoo. She has slipped into a deep depression. She keeps telling her mother, "I wanna go home." She's crying all the time and this is upsetting her daughter. Finally her mother breaks out a phone number she's saved for many years.
Katchoo is a rich artist who lives in a New Mexico adobe house with only a maid for company. She gets a phone call from Marie Peters who tells her something has happened to Francine. She's so sad and tired all the time, and she drinks and cries herself to sleep every night. Francine says she wants to go home. Marie says, "I think she means you, Katina. I can't watch my daughter die like this. Whatever happened between you two, let it go. Whatever I said about your relationship, I'm sorry. Please, come back."
