Luke searches out a real estate agent to get info on the mysterious house and gets info on Robert's new place! Robert comes by ELQ to see Alex, he meets Laura for the first time! He asks her out on a date. She indignantly tells him she is married, then finds herself telling him about her separation from Scotty. Robert comes back later, urgently looking for Luke. He runs into Laura. When she asks if Luke is in danger, he cryptically responds that they are all in danger. He offers to drive her home. Back at her apartment, once again her door sticks. Luke pushes and she pulls from the inside - they wind up in each other's arms. Luke tells Laura that he ran into her father and told him that he is living upstairs. He reports that Rick wasn't too happy. Luke also notices that Laura is more independent,not as concerned with what other people think.

Laura responds, "So...some of my best friends have been killers. Look at Hutch!" Alex & Robert rejoin them, then they are off to the disco.

Luke, Edward, and Alex at ELQ headquarters. Luke calls their bluff and tells them he found the boundary papers that they were searching for. He gets no reaction from them - they obviously aren't thrilled as they really weren't looking for any such papers (it was just a cover story for what the Ice Princess really is). Luke confronts them about their lying. Edward agrees to tell Luke what the Ice Princess really is. He tells Luke that it is a priceless statue. They explain that Alex shipped it to PC but it was stolen.
Since the Cassadine's & Robert are also looking for it, they figure some waterfront thief has stolen it. Someone who has no idea of its real value.

Luke assures Robert that he will be solo that night. Laura enters and does not contradict Luke but apologizes profusely for forgetting that she had made previous plans with Luke - a business meeting. Luke takes her home and apologizes for coming on so strong against her having a relationship with Robert, then asks her about it. She wants to know why he ruined her evening with Robert. He says he wanted to talk to her privately and he wouldn't have interfered in her private life if it wasn't important. He is worried about her. He has a strong feeling that they are both being used by the Quartermaines. He asks her again to quit her job. He tells her he has uncovered "something" and he thinks things are going to get "messy". She says no that she needs this job. He tells her that he needs her. She earnestly promises, "anything you want!" He admits to caring about her a little, she returns the feelings. He accuses her of messing with his head. They finally go out to dinner - their first date since Beecher's Corners. Heads turn as they enter the restaurant. He watches Laura to see how she reacts to the public reaction. She calmly shrugs it off, he seems impressed. She tells him that she wants to talk about their relationship. She has him trapped, he can't run off in the middle of the restaurant. She tells him she is sorry for hurting him that day at the police station, that she hates herself for doing it. She tells him that in their past, he didn't rape her - it wasn't rape she assures him. Later, Luke walks her to the door. He is confused, not sure what to do next. He tells her that she has been an obsession with him for years. He doesn't want to give up on them, but says the time isn't right for them yet. Laura tells him she will wait till he gets over his hurt. He hints that he gets over his wounds real fast! Then they have a teasingly soft merest brush of the lips.
Robert is following Luke. Luke notices Robert outside watching Luke's building. Luke sneaks out by helping some neighbors move a couch while Laura distracts Robert. Luke tells Laura that he is investigating a theft for the Q's. He needs her to distract Robert tonight at the disco, he calls Robert "son of Koaloa breath".

The dance contest is fixed so Luke is eliminated early and he sneaks out. Bobbie and Robert are in the finals, she worries when she realizes Robert has also left. (Robert saving Luke's butt is left off but is on Cari's tapes). Next am, Laura is upset with Luke as he won't tell her more about what he is really doing for the Quartermaine's. She wants to know what the Ice Princess is and who the Cassidines are. Luke tells her it is too dangerous.

Next at the ELQ offices, Luke tells her he is very close to finding what he has been looking for. He asks her if she would go out with him in the coming week, that they need to talk about where they stand. Laura listens in as Luke makes lunch plans with Emma Lutz. Then she pumps Slick for info and finds out that Luke wants to search Emma's place. Laura questions Luke about why, what he is after at Emma's. He tells her to stay out of it and to NOT follow him. Luke has lunch with Emma at her place. Her husband comes home, Luke hides in the bedroom. Slick distracts Charlie so Luke can get out of the apartment. Luke is frustrated that the Ice Princess is not at the Lutz's. Robert is waiting but Luke is empty handed. Luke vents to Robert that the Ice Princess was his shot at some financial security. Robert gloats that he is taking Laura to dinner that night. Luke immediately calls Laura and asks her to dinner. Luke confides in Laura that he is depressed as he was counting on the Ice Princess for his financial future. He tells her that the Q's financial future also depends on him finding the statue. She assures him he will be successful. L&L see an article about Hutch, he gets 25-life in prison. Laura fishes a chair out of the dumpster and Luke tells her she is turning into a bag lady. Luke arrives at her apartment in the am and wants a good morning kiss. Luke is shocked to see a picture of the Ice Princess statue on the front page of the newspaper. It has been donated to Lila's charity auction. They find out the auction items are being stored in the police property room. The next morning, Laura is frightened when she finds Luke's room ransacked and no sign of him. Luke and Slick make plans to break into the Police department property room. While Luke searches it, Slick distracts the cop on duty. Robert shows up and helps Luke search the room. They don't find it. Luke returns to Laura's upset that he once again failed in his quest. Laura tells him that she doesn't need this financial stake for their future that he does.
Edward sends Laura to help Lila organize the donor list for the auction. Luke heads over to help them. Ed Begley Jr. has a small guest spot as a painter. Luke pays him $150 to be able to take over for him to paint the room the charity auction to be held at. Laura enters and is shocked that Luke is paying the guy that much, Luke tells her it is to get his apartment painted. He points out the magenta paint he is using as a cover as the paint he has chosed to use. She offers to do paint his place for him for $50. He goes to the paint job, they want a union card. Just as they are going to throw him out, Slick arrives with a phony card. This gives Luke a chance to scout the place. But they figure out he is a phony and he gets out in the nick of time. Meanwhile, Laura has gotten the landlady to let her into Luke's apartment so she can paint it. He is more than a little surprised to return home to his magenta walls! Luke pretends he likes it. Cute scene as Laura helps Luke shave, then they kiss. Next morning, poor Luke wakes up to magenta walls - not a pleasant site first thing in the am. After breakfast, Luke makes a slip and says something about when they get married. Laura is thrilled as this is the first time he has actually admitted he thinks about marrying her. Next, Laura is disappointed. She has placed ads in the personal columns looking for Scotty so she can get a divorce from him. The responses she has received are rather lewd and not from Scotty. Luke finally takes Laura out to dinner. He tells her it is "the night of nights!" He is in a celebratory mood. He takes her to the Versaille Room, where he has champagne on ice waiting. He has a violinist seranade her with Wyndham's music. He is planning their future. He is once again counting on the $50K that he plans on recieving from the Q's for finding the Ice Princess. Then he says they will find Scotty and get her divorce. Next, he takes her to the docks where a candlelit table is waiting. He has a tape recording of the Wyndham's music which they dance to and toast with champagne. Luke tells her he loves her and doesn't want to lose her as her eyes fill with tears. She has waited so long for him to say that. They talk about their future. They continue to dance up to her door. Lots of kissing once they enter her apartment, things get heated. He formally asks her to marry him, she estatically answers yes! (Great romantic evening, nice long series of scenes for the two of them together). Luke & Laura tell Rick that they are going to marry. He is not overjoyed with the news.
At the auction, whole town is there. Luke is concerned to see Lesley there with Tony Castle (Alex tells him he is really a Cassadine and she suspects Robert may be his partner). Robert warns Luke about the dangerous people involved in the Ice Princess caper. The auction gets under way, the Ice Princess goes up for bid. Luke hits the lights, snatches the Ice Princess and hides in the mummy case. He gets away with it. He later calls Laura to let her know he is safe. Next am, Robert has left Laura a note under the door. It says that Luke is sending telegrams to Alex. Laura is furious with Luke, and jealous. She goes up to his apartment and spray paints, "I hate you Luke, where ever you are". Slick comes in. He assures her that Luke is okay and he will turn up when the timing is right. He takes her to breakfast to cheer her up. She tells him how much she hates being left out of this latest adventure, not being Luke's partner.
When Slick gets back to his cab, Luke is waiting in the back seat for him. Luke tells him he is in big trouble. He says the Cassadines have threathened his life if he doesn't turn over the statue immediately. Slick doesn't understand why Luke doesn't just turn over the statue and take the money from the Cassadines.

has decided. She is hesitant as there are so many Cassidines and only one of
him! He tells her he has a way of evenning the odds and takes her to meet
L&L...who are i the middle of their morning grooming. Laura looks like a
true island princess in her saraong and flowers in her hair. They talk about
having a romantic evening and she insists on shaving him again - with a
shell! Then she bathes in the small lagoon with a waterfall that they have
set up home near. She has removed her sarong and is bathing as Robert shows
up towing Tiffany.
Tiffany is surprised to see Lucy - (she meet her when she was pretending
to be her maid aboard the yacht), she reintroduces herself as Laura. She
tells the gang she doesn't know if she can help them but assures them she is
on their side. She tells them the Cassidines pretty much keep her in the
dark. She does tell them about a secret room. She reports that Mikos gave a
creepy demonstration where he threw diamond dust over the champagne fountain
and froze it (this is what has led her to help our heros - this scene is not
included.). They figure out this was the same night it grew so cold. Suddenly
they hear the guards calling Tiffany's name. She heads out to draw them off.
Later, L&L & Robert share an island dinner. Laura has spent the day making
curtains for their outdoor hut for privacy. Robert leaves them alone after
dinner, and L&L begin to make love. Laura is suddenly taken ill. The next day
she is worse, she spikes a high fever. As she continues to worsen Luke wants
to take action. He is willing to storm the Cassidine compound to get Laura
medicine (Tiffany has showed them where the entrance is).

On the island, Laura's illness continues. Robert evades a Cassidine
guard. When he returns Luke tells him about his run in with the monkey who
has stolen the gun. Luke is desparate to help Laura and uses native medicine
that he has learned by watching movies. He carefully watches over her.
Tiffany agrees to get medicine for Laura from the compound but she is unable
to return to meet up with them. Fortunately Luke's cures start to take effect
and Laura says she is hungry - to which Luke rejoices. Next they start to
plan on how they are going to blow up the Cassidine compound without blowing
up themselves, and afterwards they will sail off to safety on their homemade
The gang had all agreed to enter the compound below together. Robert
meets up with Tiffany and arranges for her to create a distraction so he can
enter the elevator to go down to the compound. Meanwhile, L&L share a
romantic interlude in their tropical paradise. Hot sultry kisses, flowers in
her hair, water cascading in the background. Then L&L find a note that Robert
left telling them he decided to go down alone without them. Luke is furious.
Laura points out that Robert knows how much they love each other and how much
they want a future together. Robert has instructed them if he doesn't return
within 24 hours that they are to leave the island on the raft. Luke tells
Laura they need to remove all traces that they were there, sadly they take
down their hut. And he warns if that crazy Aussie isn't back by the next day
that he (Luke) is going down into the compound after him!
A patrol of guards force L&L into hiding...the guards spot signs of where
L&L had set up camp and they begin looking for the intruders in earnest. L&L

compound. They enter it as an alarm is furiously sounding combined with a lot
