Raymond returns to Walbrook with a new portable television, and a new “announced visitor” in two weeks. Susanna understands Charlie a little better after he relates the story of his teen joyride in his father’s ‘49 Buick, and how it caused the irreparable schism between them; Charlie understands that he’s been cut from his father’s will.

Charlie doesn't exactly leave the best impression when we first meet him.

The issue of control creates problems between Charlie and Raymond:  Charlie is determined to manage Raymond to his advantage which means getting his brother on a plane to Los Angeles, but Raymond won’t be persuaded as his only defense against the world is absolute control over what he will and will not do. DR. BRUNER:  What would you have done about it? Because it would have been nice to know him for more than just the past six days. Mr. Mooney doesn’t tell him the name of the beneficiary; Dr. Bruner won’t give him half of the inheritance; Susanna won’t stay and assist him with Raymond. Raymond withdraws into his “Who on First” routine when someone invades his personal space, or when he is put in a new environment.

CHARLIE:  Look, I told you before we had a falling out a long time ago. Charlie’s approach to solving problems is to undermine others’ efforts.

Selfish yuppie Charlie Babbitt's father left a fortune to his savant brother Raymond and a pittance to Charlie. Commitment is explored in the subjective story, but it’s responsibility that wins out. “CHARLIE BABBITT.

Charlie kidnaps Raymond to force Dr. Bruner to turn over the money; Raymond wants to return to the institution where he feels safe; Dr. Bruner works to get Raymond back, fearing losing custody of Raymond; Susanna fights with Charlie over his obsession to get the inheritance. And you apologize. I found out a few days ago that I have a brother and I want to be with him. Raymond analyzes the fall of the clothes in the laundry mat dryer; memorizes the juke box numbers in the diner; counts cards for Charlie in the middle of the dessert.

SUSANNA:  No. Charlie has to adapt to the lifestyle of being on the road; assume the role of brother/caretaker to Raymond. For years Raymond was denied normal contact with his family and a chance at interaction with the world at large, however slight. His little gas guzzling cash cows don't pass emissions standards, and so the EPA has just a teeny problem with that—and won't let him sell the cars onto the owners. During a long road trip to the West Coast, Charlie bonds with his lovable, yet introspective, brother. Raymond Babbitt: the brother Charlie never knew, eighteen years his senior, institutionalized, trapped in the prison of his mind and haunted by shadows from his childhood. They never spoke to each other after the incident. A mother I didn’t know at all. You've reached the "hub" for any and all Dramatica analysis of Rain Man. Any break from that routine is terrifying.

Hurt me?

RAYMOND:  I don’t know. What difference does it make where you buy it. This is my family do you understand that? Raymond’s focus on pursuit causes problems for Charlie: He goes after the moaning sounds coming from Charlie and Susanna’s bedroom; he wants to go back to Cincinnati to buy underwear; he pursues a win on the “wheel of fortune” in the casino and loses $3,000; he pursues the hooker in the bar and tells her he’s been counting cards, something taboo in a casino.

Everyone is concerned with Charlie’s trying to obtain half of the inheritance. He doesn’t even get custody of Raymond. It’s okay. CHARLIE:  At my father.

My mother died when I was two. Raymond is allowed to go back home to Cincinnati.

I deserve that. Charlie comes to believe he’s the one who should take care of his brother, and fights to convince the psychiatrists of this. Charlie is after the quick buck with the car deal and the inheritance, and is determined to find a way to get Raymond to Los Angeles to claim the inheritance. SUSANNA:  You’re pissed at your father and you bring Raymond here. Numbed by learning that he has a brother and determined to get what he believes is his fair share of the Babbitt estate, Charlie takes Raymond on what becomes a cross-country car trip (due to Ray's fear of flying) back to Los Angeles to meet with his attorneys.

CHARLIE:  You don’t know. What did you sing? RAYMOND:  Yeah. Charlie is a quick-witted but self-centered yuppie with a bad temper and a foul mouth. DR. BRUNER:  Raymond has a problem communicating and learning.

Charlie gains a brother that he’ll visit in two weeks and long time afterward; Raymond gains a new friend; Susanna will have a boyfriend who’ll be more compassionate; Dr. Bruner won’t have to worry about custody suits in the future; Lenny may have a job because Charlie recouped his money in Las Vegas.

I won’t touch anything else. Charlie lives fast, thinks fast, makes fast money, and can charm anyone out of what he wants, until his father dies leaving Charlie only a car and some rose bushes, and bestowing a $3 million estate to someone else. They share a quiet moment together after the psychological hearing, their heads tilted closely together. Susanna heatedly condemns Charlie’s motives for keeping Raymond and angrily leaves him.

He didn't think he had any recollections of Raymond, but some are coming back to him.

RAYMOND:  One for bad. Dr. Bruner never wavers in his efforts to do what is best for Raymond, selflessly denouncing personal and professional claim to the inheritance: As an employee, Lenny is compelled to inform Charlie of business disasters causing Charlie to backtrack to Las Vegas. CHARLIE:  My father has stuck it to me all of my life. He cares only about the money he didn’t get from his father and considers Raymond only as a way to get it: Raymond also sings "I Saw Her Standing There" by The Beatles like he did when Charlie was three or four years old. Raymond’s use of consider poses problems for Charlie. His impatient Los Angeles customers want to buy their cars elsewhere. They uneasily settle into a way of coexisting on the road, moving into the roles of babysitter and oversized adolescent. We just didn’t get along.

Raymond and Charlie’s efforts toward temptation creates conflict:  Charlie gives into the urge to find the anonymous beneficiary of the inheritance, steal Raymond, then ransom him for half the inheritance.
