“I’ll call you one better, you let me get f*##ed around in my life, raped so to speak, when I was about 14 1/2 and I’m saying, by a guy you still hang around with and tell me (I’m 14) to take f#$%ing responsibility.”
Corey Haim continued.
“You know exactly what I’m talking about. What did you do man when you saw that s#$% going down? What did you do? You knew about it, besides being his best friend? What’d you do? What’d you do?”

“The person Corey Haim was referring to in this episode is the man named Dominick Brascia, who also happened to be a friend of Corey Feldman’s.”
