he's not too proud to beg for votes. >> please do me a favor, let me win iowa. >> ben carson surges as the candidates take center stage at tonight's big republican debate. is he about to deliver a knockout blow or will donald come back? and we do say good morning, america, on this wednesday morning. big buildup to tonight's big debate. a lot at stake. but you have baseball, debate tonight. >> lots of big showdowns. we'll start with that world series kickoff. the royals take the mets in 14 innings, all kinds of ups and down ending well past 1:00 a.m. on the east coast and the few minutes of blackouts had fans everywhere in a frenzy. t.j. holmes is at kauffman stadium. >> reporter: good morning. it was an absolute unforgettable night for a lot of the right and wrong reasons. we had a classic here on this field last night. but in the midst of enjoying all
7:02 am
pitching, we had a power problem that left millions of viewers shut out. >> the royals win game one. >> reporter: overnight the kansas city royals take world series game one, 5-4. after 14 epic innings, a record-setting 5:09. the second longest game in world series history. but it was a technical glitch at the bottom of the fourth inning that had fans at home fuming. >> we have lost our picture. >> reporter: fox lost the broadcast feed for over five minutes, viewers missed one at bat before the game was hauled. >> fox broadcasting has taken some kind of a technical glitch. >> reporter: announcers for the international broadcast called the game until fox's feed was restored. >> okay. we're heading back. >> reporter: blaming a rare electronics failure and apologizing for the outage. but back to baseball, both teams came out swinging after the royals scored that jaw-dropping inside-the-park home run in the
7:03 am
first -- >> here comes escobar. 1-0, kansas city. >> reporter: -- the mets came roaring back to take the lead. >> here comes the mets and tea thick the lead. >> reporter: only to give up a game tying home run in the bottom of the ninth. >> this game is tied. >> reporter: but it was royals first baseman eric hosmer's bases loaded sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 14th that finally clinched the win for the royals. now, fox says this was a rare issue that actually caused primary and backup systems to go down. but what that meant that the power problem caused issues in the stadium as well so they had to actually stop the gail for a short time, the 40,000 fans inside didn't really know what was going on but, george, robin, fox said they got this issue worked out to make sure the world series goes without incident the rest of the way. >> i know that you're going to be there for us, every step of the way. >> see if tonight's game tops it. >> off to a great start.
7:04 am
we are still feeling the effects of hurricane patricia this morning. the remains of the storm bringing heavy rain and strong winds to the northeast and the entire east coast is on alert for flooding. ginger has that. >> the pictures out of charleston, south carolina, with the highest tide they've seen in more than 26 years. you've got to see this video. this coming in and unfortunately i think this could happen again anywhere from stuart, florida, up to portland, maine, we have coastal massachusetts, rhode island, new jersey, maryland, all with flood watches and warnings, the wind advisories on the interior for gusts up to 60. most of the rain and wind comes through today into early tomorrow then we dry it out but before that happens three plus inches. i'll have a whole lot coming up and your nation's weather. don't go anywhere. >> we will not, thanks. the race for president, "your voice, your vote." and the stage is set for tonight's big republican showdown in colorado. the first debate where ben carson on top in some polls pulling ahead of donald trump and the billionaire fighting back and pleading for help and abc's tom llamas is on the trail
7:05 am
in council bluff, iowa. good morning, tom. you. donald trump tells me he can't explain the new polls but he's not giving up on iowa. and he may be playing rope-a-dope going into tonight's debate. last night he was very tame, not on the attack and almost begging iowa voters to stick with him. >> look, please do me a favor, let me win iowa. >> reporter: overnight, donald trump in iowa admitting his drop in the polls is starting to get to him. >> i mean, i am second. it's not like terrible but i don't like being second. second is terrible to me. >> reporter: but the setback motivating trump. >> i'm going to work harder in iowa. i'm not leaving iowa. i'm not leaving iowa. [ applause ] now, if i lose iowa i will never speak to you people again, that i can tell you. >> reporter: i asked about the carson surge. what is going on in the polls? >> i have no explanation. i think we're doing great. >> reporter: carson spending the eve of the debate getting in the ring and picking up an
7:06 am
champion bellfort who called had i'm a savior. >> are you going to put trump in a submission pull in the next debate. >> i'll let him do that. >> reporter: trump better be ready for that. marco rubio waking up to serious criticism the morning before the debate. one of his hometown papers, "the sun sent knell" calling him to resign saying he missed too many votes in the senate. this is very notable because "the sun sent knell" endorsed him in 2010 for senate. >> tom, thanks very much. here with our political team, jon karl and matthew dowd and start out with donald trump. a pretty good sense of humor and spirit but he'll come in in a different position. >> this is the first time we see him come on to a debate stage as anything but the clear front-runner. the question now is three polls in iowa that have shown him trailing carson. a poll nationally that shows him trailing carson. does he attack carson and come in as somebody who looks like a front-runner or somebody who is worried that the lead is
7:07 am
slipping away? >> matthew dowd, ben carson could be under pressure because of inconsistency in his plans. >> donald trump makes me smile in the course of this. watching him yesterday was like a guy with iowa electile dysfunction getting polling viagra to get his poll numbers up. >> you just wanted to get that viagra line in there. >> he makes me laugh. ben carson you watched him with his gloves and fists. he has to practice more with his vocal chords. he is now the front-runner in some states, iowa and nationally in the last polls, but so he's going to have to show up in a. different way. >> ben carson on the spot. but jeb bush may be under more pressure. >> he's moved further out and marco rubio will be standing next to donald trump and next to jeb bush. he really finally needs a breakthrough performance. jeb bush has had two very disappointing debates and his own people at that family retreat they had down in houston
7:08 am
were acknowledging he was acknowledging that he needs to do better. >> i think jeb bush's strategy reminds me of the story gathered around and the bears chasing. how you outrun the bear. i don't need to outrun the bear, just you. that's all he is trying to do is outrun marco rubio and the other establishment figures and not worry about ben carson and donald trump right now. >> we will see if he does it tonight. thanks very much. to robin. >> thank you. now to the new outrage over that violent confrontation in a south carolina classroom. the fbi is now investigating. the deputy who slammed the student to the ground. abc's mary bruce has the story. >> reporter: this morning, the fbi opening an investigation into this disturbing confrontation. as new details about the school officer involved surface. abc news learning that students call him officer slam. some arguing this shocking classroom takedown shows why. >> are you gonna come with me? >> reporter: the principal vowing to make changes.
7:09 am
>> our district and our school have zero tolerance for what occurred. i personally have zero tolerance as well. >> reporter: the sheriff investigating. >> the student was wrong in what she did. there's no doubt about that. it started with her and it ended with my officer. what i'm going to deal with is what my deputy did. >> reporter: the incident prompted when the student who reportedly had been using her cell phone repeatedly refused to leave the classroom when reprimanded. in. when she still refuses, grabs the 16-year-old female student violently slamming her to the ground. >> put your hands behind your back. >> when deputy fields came in there we knew what was about to happen. >> reporter: last year he was honored as an exceptional role model but this is not the first time he's been accused 6 misconduct. in 2007 he was sued accused of using excessive force. in that case the jury sided with fields.
7:10 am
another student is heading to trial. and, robin, this morning police say they are investigating yet another video that they say shows the student striking the officer with her fist. >> all right, mary, thank you very much. we'll talk more about that because joining us now from columbia, south carolina, is todd rutherford. he is the attorney for the girl confrontation. much for being with us this morning. let me begin by asking you what has your client told you about what happened in the classroom that day? >> as you can see in the tape, she doesn't say anything when the officer approaches her and she said that they requested her cell phone. she put it away immediately and so when they continued to ask for her cell phone she simply didn't want to give it to him. when the officer came in he asked her to leave and she wanted to tay in the classroom. she wanted to continue her education. unfortunately for her that wasn't in the cards and the officer placed his arm around the neck.
7:11 am
and whether it's an intate reaction to try to get his hand off or whether she's never been choked before she either way starts reaching up and punching his arm and then he throws her to the ground and tosses her all the way across the room. it's one of the most disturbing videos i've seen especially one that involves a child. >> disturbing is the word we've heard over and over again. people have that type of reaction. that is a video that people have seen. police officers are saying there is another video and there are reports that the young woman struck the officer with her fist leading to the confrontation starting the confrontation. has she told you anything about that? can you shed any light on that? >> absolutely not, robin and i think what they're referring to are the same hits she delivered while she was being choked and i would submit it doesn't matter. this was not a roadside confrontation or a confrontation where he didn't know the security of his surroundings. he was in a classroom setting.
7:12 am
in fact, had he just left her alone she would have sat there and continued with class. he didn't do that. he couldn't do that on his own. he simply had to make sure that he asserted his authority as a 300-pound weight lifting man and tossed her so far across the room that it was out of frame. he had to walk several steps to where her body landed. she now has a cast on her arm. she has neck and back injuries. she has a band-aid on her forehead where she suffered rug burn. she was brutally attacked by a cop who the sheriff is saying we need a civil rights investigation. all the sheriff is doing is taking us down a rabbit hole. her civil rights weren't violated, her simple rights were violated. you should never be able to treat a child and student about that. >> the sheriff said he is going to deal more with the actions of his officer, not the actions of the young woman, your client, but the actions of the officer and the investigation. it sounds like you're not pleased with how the investigation is proceeding.
7:13 am
>> i'm not pleased at all and i would actually differ with the notion the sheriff has been out in front with anything. he's way behind. his officer is known as officer slam. take out your cell phone because we're going to see something and the world has seen what they were expecting. what she was expecting. the deputy needs to be in handcuffs and should have been as soon as the sheriff saw the video. >> tom, thanks for your time this morning. all the best. >> thank you. the officer in question is on suspension, unpaid leave and feel today there will be a determination if indeed he will keep his job. >> many more investigations to go. we got the latest now on former house speaker dennis hastert expected in federal court this morning to plead guilty after he was discovered paying millions of dollars of hush money to cover up sexual abuse while he was a high school wrestling coach. abc's brian ross is in chewing with that story. >> mr. speaker -- >> reporter: once second in line to the presidency, dennis hastert will become the first speaker of the house to be
7:14 am
convicted of a crime, at least since the civil war. the charges against hastert come out of his role as a popular high school wrestling coach in yorkville, illinois in the 1970s. authorities say he sexually abused several teenage boys on the team and a few years ago began to pay one of them more than a million dollars in hush money to keep quiet. >> these boys were 14, 15, 16 years old. >> reporter: jolene verge told abc news her late brother steven rhine bold was another of hastert's victims, something she says she learned years later had they brother told her he was gay. >> i asked, stevie, when was your first same-sex experience? i mean, he just looked at me and said, it was with dennis hastert. and i just -- i was stunned. >> reporter: authorities say what tripped up hastert was not the alleged sexual misconduct from decades ago but his more recent efforts to pay off one of his victims to keep quiet.
7:15 am
laws for not reporting his huge cash withdrawals and then lying to the fbi about them. he's expected this morning, george, to plead guilty to one of those two counts either one of which normally means time behind bars, george. >> okay, brian, thanks very much. to amy now for today's other top stories starting with the laser incident on a passenger jet. >> an airline pilot being targeted by a laser beam overnight, the captain of an american airlines flight flying from san diego into phoenix reported by hitting by a green laser. it landed safely and paramediced call but the captain declined treatment. this is the second incident in san diego in the last month. well, there is troubling news about student test scores. for the first time since 1990 average math scores on a nationwide test have dropped among both fourth and eighth graders. here are this year's scores out of a possible 500. just last week, president obama called for limiting the amount of class time spent preparing
7:16 am
for standardized tests. and on wall street the big headline is from apple. the company reporting record iphone sales. apple made $11 billion profit in just three months. many investors though wonder if the company can keep those kind of numbers up. also this morning, a mega megamerger, walgreens is buying rite aid in a deal worth $17 billion pending government approval. and a missing sleepwalker in colorado has been found after wandering away from home for three hours. the 19-year-old finally woke up nine miles away near her uncle's house. she was wearing just socks on her feet and the clothes she slept in. police think she may have stepped onto a bus at one point and even visited a 7-eleven along the way. she doesn't remember any of it. she just woke up and thought i think i'm near my uncle's house. no idea how she got there. >> why do i have a drink in my hand? >> nine miles. >> nine miles. >> wow.
7:17 am
>> glad she's okay. >> all right, amy. thank you. big questions after another frightening injury on a high school football field. that story in just 30 seconds. >> a california high school football player in medically the head. abc's matt gutman has that story for us. routine tackle. >> he's down and he looks like he's in pain. >> reporter: but number 18 is slow to get up. he seems to try to shake it off then wobbles to the
7:18 am
the 17-year-old varsity staple propped up by a teammate helping him to the bench. >> came off the field, everything seemed normal. he went through like concussion symptoms. >> reporter: the concussion so severe he collapses flopping under that bench. rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery to stop the bleeding, swelling and pressure on his brain. he had what was supposed to be an added security measure against concussions. reidel's inside impact helmet rimmed with sensors that alert brain injuries. >> that sensor is in there to kind of monitor the severity of certain impacts and frequency of certain impacts as well. >> reporter: a product similar to this called brain sentry. a red light will blink if a player sustains a hard hit. if a coach sees a red light like this he at least knows to take a second look at a player wearing this helmet. in his case the school district says his helmet sensor did not
7:19 am
go off. riddell saying "we are hopeful he has a full recover" since few facts are known it would be inappropriate for us to speculate on the circumstances surrounding the incident." nava remains in an indunesed coma but overnight his brother posting good news on facebook. he is breathing on his own. for "good morning america," matt gutman, abc news, los angeles. >> we are thinking of that young man. coming up newly released video of that confrontation between that police officer and teenager. why the officer is not facing any charges. you tuck here... you tuck there. if you're a toe tucker... because of toenail fungus, ask your doctor now about prescription kerydin. used daily, kerydin drops may kill the fungus at the site of infection and get to the root of your toe tucking. kerydin may cause irritation at the treated site. most common side effects include skin peeling... ...ingrown toenail, redness, itching, and swelling. tell your doctor if you have any side effect that bothers you or does not go away. stop toe tucking... and get the drop on toenail fungus.
7:20 am
lowe's presents "how to be good at math" how much money do you think we saved today? a lot. now get his troy-bilt 24-in snow blower for only $499 i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me.
7:21 am
then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me.

7:31 am
i'm not alone and that's causing problem, right? >> we brought it up because the real-life homeowner, michael, in a bit of a -- >> you're alone at this desk. it's not my favorite movie but the real-life homeowner is in a little -- a little upset because they said they're getting spooked but not by the ghosts. we'll explain that in "the speed feed" when we come back. >> nothing animates amy like a good horror flick. >> a good one. i encourage all of you to see it. >> sure. >> i'm good. >> good morning. >> that is all coming up. we begin with that deadly police shooting of an unrm aed south carolina teenager. officials have finally released dash cam footage of the encounter after the prosecutor decides no the to charge the officer. abc's linsey davis here with the story. good morning, linsey. >> reporter: good morning, george. back when this happened over the summer the victim's pardons wanted that dash cam video released believing it would show the police officer did not have to fatally shoot their son to spare his own life. now that video is out and you can decide for yourself if you
7:32 am
believe it vindicates the officer. >> hands up. >> reporter: for the first time we're getting a look at the three-second split decision a south carolina police officer made that took the life of 19-year-old zach hammond. >> stop, stop, stop. >> reporter: this dash cam video released tuesday as officials announced officer mark tiller will not face state charges. watch as tiller approaches with his gun drawn, ordering hammond to stop and show his hands but hammond puts his car in reverse then drive. second after the shooting officer tiller is heard saying this -- >> he tried to hit me. >> reporter: the july shooting happened during a drug sting targeting his female passenger. shortly after hammond's parents said they hoped the officer would be charged with murder. >> i mean, this is over a little bit of marijuana. you don't kill people over marijuana. >> reporter: all along local police blamed the unarmed man saying he tried to run the officer over with his car calling it attempted murder in
7:33 am
the police report. the circuit solicitor who made the decision not to file charges says "the video viewed at full speed standing alone is trouble troublesome" but she goes on to explain the "video shows his feet going underneath the car at the approximate time the shots were fired" adding "the car accelerated with such force that a concrete curb was damaged." hammond had cocaine own other drugs in his system he used within three to six hours of the shooting. his parents say that's no excuse to kill their son. >> he murdered our child. >> reporter: on tuesday they released a statement saying we are thankful the investigation came to an end and showed officer tiller acting in self-defense. the department of justice opens its own investigation in august and that is still ongoing. >> linsey, thanks. let's talk to dan abrams. the prosecutor looks at that tape and decides the police officer acted this a reasonable manner. >> at least that he's not going to get charged here, right. just because they're not
7:34 am
doesn't mean he didn't do anything wrong, per se. the legal standard when it comes to something like this is what would a reasonable police officer faced with the same situation have done? would a reasonable police officer have believed that his life was in danger? and the authorities here clearly saying we don't have enough evidence to prosecute but when you look at that tape -- >> not necessarily what a good police officer. >> what an objective police officer would do but when you look at that tape, it sure looks like he's shooting after the car has passed him. and the family did an autopsy. they say he was shot in the back of the shoulder and in the side. that could be the grounds for a powerful civil lawsuit against the police officer and the department. remember, civil lawsuit, the burden of proof is. lower. just more likely than not rather than when you're talking about filing criminal charges. >> and as linsey said there's still a justice department investigation. >> that's not going to go anywhere. every one of these cases the
7:35 am
worry, the feds are looking into this. we will investigate possible federal charges and incredibly rare the feds step into a case like this. i would be stunned. this is going to be resolved in the civil court at this point and, look, when you watch that tape you can understand why that's frustrating for the family. >> dan abrams, thanks very much. all right, george. now to the nba star who says he was a victim of racial profiling shut out of a high-end jewelry store when trying to buy a rolex watch. the 911 calls from the store employee has been released. abc's mara schiavocampo has that story for us. >> they are at the front door. i don't feel comfortable letting them in. >> reporter: this morning newly released 911 recordings capturing the alleged racial profiling of nba star john henson. >> i am hiding in the office. i don't want them to see me out there. >> reporter: the milwaukee bucks forward who has just signed a new deal for a reported $44 million says he called the jewelry store asking about their
7:36 am
hours hoping to buy his first rolex. driving to the discover, but store employees describing his calls as suspicious closed early. >> what were the phone calls about? >> they were just asking about what time they're going to close and they just didn't sound like they were legitimate customers. >> reporter: police told employees if they saw the car again to alert authorities. the next week henson and a friend returned hoping again to purchase that watch. but the store employees recognizing the suv but not henson locked the doors. >> we're pretending like we're closed. >> there is inherent power in social media and as with most celebrities and specifically nba players they have a tremendous following so when this post came to growth it quickly went viral. people paid attention. >> reporter: the jewelry store owner apologized saying the situation as a result of a series of unfortunate misunderstandings adding we believe that everyone desearchings to be treated with dignity and respect.
7:37 am
happy to hear. >> it was a sincere apology and, you know, he kind of knew that shouldn't have happened. >> reporter: though he did go somewhere else for that rolex. for "good morning america," mara schiavocampo, abc news, new york. >> coming up, "gma investigates." taxi riders getting ripped off. how some cars -- some cabs could end up costing you extra and what you can do to make sure it doesn't happen to you. lowe's presents "how to be good at math"

8:12 am
engaged and got married one month later. >> i, khloe, give you this ring. >> reporter: she filed for divorce in december 2013 after rumors of odom's infidels and drug use and while they signed divorce papers this summer the divorce was never finalized. now khloe and lamar are putting the divorce on hold. khloe remains this charge of his medical decisions and said i pulled back on it becauses had's no rush for it. it's smarter it's put on hold. the tar adds that does not mean i'm back with lamar. only time will tell. we are joined by kate coyne, the executive editor of "people" magazine. boy, only time will tell but is a reconciliation possible? >> i think khloe is being smart. too much is up in the air. lamar's condition is nowhere near stable at this point so it's really impossible for her to say what the future holds. as of this moment, they're not reconciled. they're not back together. but she had supporting him.
8:13 am
she's doing what anybody who loves someone would do. >> she does seem to truly love him. >> oh, absolutely and she never stopped and she's very clear about the fact that, you know, lamar odom is largely alone in this world. he's an only child whose mother died. he doesn't have the same sort of familial support that khloe has had her whole life and she recognizes that. she really feels for him in that regard and she wants to be there for him. >> so, how does her boyfriend fit into this. >> again, khloe is very wise to say she just doesn't know what the future is going to bring for them either. that she's completely understanding if at some point james feels overwhelmed by this. right now he's fine. his season is about to start, the nba season so, you know, a lot of things are going to be changing in the future. >> and this has really hit rob kardashian hard, as well. >> it really has. you know, rob kardashian is the sort of reclusive kardashian. no one has really seen him for pretty much well over a year now.
8:14 am
lamar was a father figure in his life and so when lamar and khloe broke up, he went into a pretty serious spiral. >> and khloe has a big book coming out. >> although you won't be hearing her talking about it quite as. because of what's going on. she has pulled way back on her promotional plans and so, you know, that's just not what's most on to her right now. >> kate coyne, thanks very much. >> sure. robin. thank you and kate. so much drama and emotion in that story. halloween is just days away and that means lots of candy for the kids but a new study this morning is showing the power of cutting sugar from their diets. it fines substituting it with complex carbs can have a dramatic impact on kids' overall health in just days here. dr. jennifer ashton is here telling us more about the study. >> this is a small but very smart study out of ucsf and what they wanted to look at with obese kids and teenagers, if just cutting, reducing the amount of added sugar would
8:15 am
that put them at risk for future heart disease. they kept their calories the same, the goal was not to have them lose weight and after just nine days, nine day, robin, not nine week, not nine months they saw a decrease in a lot of these abnormal numbers. they saw the bad cholesterol ldl number drop and the lower blood pressure number drop and triglycerides drop and was an indication it actually might be the sugar that is doing something harmful, not just the calories and the weight. >> what more can we learn from this because the study really focused on certain children that were at risk for diabetes and what can the rest of us learn about it. >> here's the actual study. i'll give it to you. the lesson here is a couple of things. number one for the very obese, encouragement. you don't have to possibly lose a significant amount of weight to improve your health and reduce your risk for future heart disease and, again, also for all of us, nine days, you can make significant changes in your internal health parameters
8:16 am
in a very short period of time, so it's never too late. >> jen, halloween is coming up. so what do parents do with this information and knowing that the kids are going to be out and it's a holiday. >> absolutely. look, i'm a parent toos, as you know. worry about the other 364 days a year. don't worry about this one day. however, a lot of parents will have -- say to their kids save up your candy and eat a little of it every day. i think that's a mistake. have them enjoy that holiday and then go back to the clean eating as. as possible and, again, read those labels. this study was looking at added sugar so basically high fructose corn syrup and sucrose. you see that in a label, chuck it. >> always have to look at that label and i want to look at that study. >> i'll put this on your desk. >> thanks. amy. i throw some of the candy out when they're sleeping. i hope they're not watching. thank you, guys. so much to think about, sugar, kids and candy but lessons for all of us, now to our series "modern romance" and a difficult question, can you or
8:17 am
a relationship? many opinions on this one as you might imagine. this is a real-life couple, all allie and andrew together for seven years and confronting each other after a two-year separation, their story has gone viral. take a look. >> why did you cheat on me so many types? >> i did not like do the act of cheating and i never slept with anybody else. i think it's because i was interest ed interested in other options. why did i do it so many times?
8:18 am
>> that's okay. >> yeah, i don't have the answers. you could change one thing in our relationship, what would it be? and why? >> i know that we have a lot of issues and i blame you for a lot of things but i wasn't perfect. who is at fault for the relationship ending? >> i think me. >> really? >> definitely. >> really? >> absolutely. 100% me. >> why do you want to still be friends post-breakup? >> because i really miss you. >> let's bring in simone bienne, life coach and relationship therapy. that was really raw to watch that. what do you make of that couple. >> i think they represent a lot of us. his number one need is to feel important and significant and i think her number one need is to feel loved and i think there's a clash there because if you need
8:19 am
to feel significant, that's where we go wrong because you are going to do anything to make your needs come true and meet your needs and that includes going against your values and cheating. >> so many times, though? i mean that popped up a couple of type. >> it's a pattern. we are all like living in this movie. it's like a really, really bad movie. would we go and see a bad movie 100 times? huh-uh and if we have a life story that we believe, oh, you know, i'm not going to get my needs met, then what we will do is get into a really negative pattern. >> can we learn something from this couple? >> absolutely. what we can learn from them is they've got to look at themselves. what did i bring to the table? and every single one of us, robin, we have to ask, if we are not getting what we need, we got to ask why. >> can you, should you repair a relationship if someone cheats? >> we must. we must repair the relationship. now, it's not necessary that the relationship we're in, it is the
8:20 am
we've got to say, what are we doing? what did i bring? what is my story? why am i dating guys who cheat on me? >> do you like this idea, what we just watched. do you think it's a good idea for our viewers who are living with this should they try this? >> i think absolutely because what that couple is doing is they're talking, look at yourself first. swap the me to we. if we stay in the me place, then we're going to be suffering and also be passionate about your relationship. i think that is absolute key. our relationships, i think it's like a -- yes. >> why do we say that. >> because ferraris are like relationships, they're precious. they have the potential to make us feel absolutely outstanding. and also, look, if we leave a ferrari in the garage for a year what's going to what happen? >> it won't start. >> it's not going to start so the older, the older they get, the more we must take care of
8:21 am
ferraris when they're low, i don't know about them, when they're low, they're bumpy, it's uncomfortable. but they have unstoppable power and each one of us, this is the take home, especially, i'm sorry, i love women and i love men, each one of us has unstoppable power. we just need to find it within ourselves. do that and we're going to have a beautiful, beautiful life. >> i wish we could talk with you more. >> i was thinking about taking that ferrari out. >> i was wondering if that was part of it. >> thank you. >> well, please come back. >> i have to have her back. lots to think about there, simone, we thank you for that. also big honor for the women's u.s. soccer team. president obama honoring them at the white house yesterday for their world cup victory saying they taught all of our children playing like a girl means, well, you -- i won't use the phrase that he used. >> you can. >> no. >> bad -- but --
8:22 am
>> if he can say it, we can say it, badass. >> george. >> the mraits really responded to that, hey, thank you for saying that because it used to be if you said threw like a girl it was considered a negative. now it's a positive and here abby wambach, this is what she said in response to what the president said. >> when somebody says you throw like a girl, you run like a girl, i'm kind of like, yeah, you're damn right i do and i think that's what that statement is and i think that our team completely enexamineses that. >> everybody is jumping in the pool now. >> why not? >> telling it like it is and she officially announced her retirement yesterday, abby, and she is the most decorated male/female soccer player ever in the u.s. >> nice to go out on top. >> yes, indeed. let's go outside to ginger.
