Titre original : The Vanished Mr. Albert
Frightened for Albert's safety, Candy rushes off in search for Albert and gets Alistear and Archibald to help. When Candy remembers Albert's fondness for nature, she sets course for the city park. Albert does not want to be a burden to Candy and when he hears her calling out his name during her search, he remains silent. But Poope betrays him and he overhears how preoccupied she is about him. He tells her she should not feel so responsible over a stranger. Candy reveals he is not a stranger and recounts the past she has shared with him. Albert concludes that he either was a criminal or a vagabond. He wants Candy to forget about him. But Candy cannot let him go and reveals she loves him like a brother. She pleads with him, reasoning that he has helped her so often in the past, and now it is her turn to help him. Upon their return to the hospital, Candy learns from Dr. Leonard that Albert cannot remain there anymore: aside from his memory loss, he is healthy. As a temporary solution, Alistear offers his van for Albert to sleep in the park.
