Barbara: Kim, Kim, is Chris all right?
Kim: His heart stopped.
Barbara: Oh, honey -- honey, he's gonna be okay, all right? He's gonna be fine. He's with the best. And you're not alone.
Henry: There's nothing you can do out here in the hall. Why don't you sit down?
Kim: No, no. I'm gonna stay right here.
Barbara: No, no. Henry's right. Let's go down to the waiting room, okay?
Barbara: Look, if you're not okay, you can't be here for Chris. Come on. Come on.
Henry: Is Katie in there?
Luke: No. Katie's not here.
Katie: I'm scared, Brad I'm in love with Chris. Not the way I loved you. It's -- it's different. But it's strong. It's the real thing. Ever since I lost you, people kept telling me that I would fall in love again, and I just didn't believe them, 'cause I wasn't ready. But now I am. But Chris is in trouble. He's fighting for his life, and I need to be with him right now. I need to be strong enough to do that. But I just -- I can't bring myself to do it. But I can't just sit by and do nothing. But the thing that scares me the most is what if I show up at he hospital and I can't handle it and I have to run away? That would just make him feel even worse, even more alone. So I need your help. I need you to help me be strong, because you're the strong one. I'm just a coward. I'm such a coward.
Henry: The hell you are.
Henry: You are not a coward, Katie. You're the bravest person I know.
Katie: No. A brave person would be with the person she loves who's fighting for his life, not hiding out in a graveyard, feeling sorry for herself.
Henry: You need Brad's help, and there is no shame in that.
Katie: But he's gone. I can't depend on him anymore. But here I am. Instead of being with a living person, I'm talking to a stone.
Henry: I do the same thing.
Katie: You do?
Henry: Yeah. I do it all the time. It helps. Hell, I -- I came up here a couple of months ago with a bottle of scotch, and I -- I matched him one for one. I'd take a shot, and I'd pour one into the ground. And we just went on and on and on like that till I passed out and I woke up the next morning and --
Henry: I know. And I realized I had destroyed this whole patch of grass over here. I got the groundskeeper to take care of it before you noticed. The point -- the point is sweetie, I think it takes a lot more strength and courage to go on with your life and keep Brad in your heart than to just lock his memory away somewhere in your mind because it hurts too much to remember.
Katie: No, no. I could never do that.
Henry: I know you couldn't. That's why I love you so much. You got to stop being so hard on yourself. This is tough stuff.
Katie: It's just even though I've known Chris forever, I just found him.
Katie: And the thought of losing him, of having to say goodbye and let him go --
Henry: You don't have to let him go. Brad's love is still inside of you and in Jacob's, and that's forever. Yeah, bad stuff happens in life and people die. But the only way to skip out on the hard part is just to, I don't know, lock yourself up and -- and refuse to love anyone but yourself. You can always choose that option if you want.
Katie: It doesn't feel like it.
Henry: No, it doesn't, because you don't have a cowardly bone in your body. How many times you and I have just kissed each other off for good? And we always came back to each other, right? Because we care. We're not getting weaker and more afraid. We're getting stronger, and we're getting braver. That's what life's all about. I, uh -- I can't tell you what to do, but --
Henry: Whatever decision you make, you should make it soon?
Katie: Henry -- how fast can you get me to the hospital?
Barbara: [Sighs] She's gonna need you to help her through this.
Henry: Does that make you jealous?
Barbara: No, not at all. It would be selfish of me to keep you all to myself. But I promise you we will tango rings around them.
John: That was very good, Katie. I should hire you to try o talk some sense into my more stubborn patients.
Katie: I don't even know what I said.
Barbara: Well, what you said was perfect, for all of us.
Kim: Actually, I could not have said that better myself. I am so proud of you. Bob -m where did bob go?
Bob: Hey, listen. There's a heart.
Kim: Oh! Thank god!
Henry: Careful, bubbles. Bubbles, you can manhandle him once the new heart is installed, okay?
Katie: A new heart. I'm gonna miss the old one. How could I help but fall in love with it?
Barbara: I didn't know you drank coffee this late in the day.
Henry: Well, I wanted to give the family some time together, and, uh, I want to be with Katie while Chris is going through surgery, so it looks like it's gonna be a really long night.
Barbara: I think Katie came back here because of you.
Henry: Well, what can I say? You married a wonderful guy.
Barbara: Yes, I did.
