Racheal is told repeatedly that if she doesn't take her medication she will 'flip out'. Rachael has very little social life but recently she and a boy in her special needs class started dating. Racheal talks to him over the phone and is occasionally allowed to walk the several blocks to his house. Rachael says that she will probably marry her school boyfriend and have children as soon as possible. Racheal says this as she holds the bouquet from a cousin's wedding.
