"Oh, my goodness. Oh, my soul. There goes Alice down the hole!"
As a result, Philip sees his entire family torn apart overnight. A double funeral is quickly arranged for which most of the town turns out to pay their respects. Back home, over the next few days, Philip tries to help his parents recover but meets with little success. For example, his offer to look after Rick's opera records, rather than see them go to charity is mistakenly regarded as an act of selfishness by his father who is in the midst of the harrowing task of clearing out his son's room.
Eventually Philip and Sarah began to accept the death of their brother. However, any progress that their mother had made on the road to recovery was shattered when she discovers some of Rick's photographs that shows her husband having an affair. With their father thrown out of the family home the children once again find themselves in the very depths of despair. Philip then recalls how, in the past, he always used to copy his elder brother....
Finding the contents of her bottle of sleeping pills almost empty, Tina Brogan discovers her son in a delirious state and rushes him to hospital, livid with Philip and fearful that the recent tragic events she has had to live through and endure are about to happen all over again.
"And in the right corner - Philip. Left corner - Rick. The crowds cheer! Throws a right punch. A left punch. Hard jab right into the jaw! Boom, boom!"
