Griffin: This is where we're gonna eat.
Kendall: It's freezing.
Griffin: There's nothing like fresh air.
Kendall: In this?
Griffin: I'm gonna fix that.
Kendall: Oh. Oh, no. Wait a minute. You've got to be kidding me. Ok. Do you always travel with women's storm gear?
Griffin: No. That's Cara's. And I always keep stuff in my car just in case. It's a habit, traveling tent to tent. Here. Put these on.
Kendall: Oh, no. No! Ok. There's one thing you have to know about me. I am a choo girl. All right? I don't wear ugly boots or uglier boots.
Griffin: Hey, look. That's the way these non-dates roll. So if you'd rather sissy out, go home.
Kendall: Are you calling me a sissy?
Griffin: If the choo fits...
Kendall: Do you even know what a choo is?
Griffin: More expensive than my first car.
Kendall: Give me the boots. Thanks a lot, champ.
Jesse: What is it? Talk to me, huh?
Angie: Jesse, when I made the decision to have this baby--even though I knew it would cost my sight--I knew it was the right decision, the only one, and I have never regretted it, ever.
Jesse: I know that.
Angie: Whatever challenges my blindness brought me, this child, a miracle--it has been the light in my life. I have counted the days until she's born and dreamt of holding her and singing to her.
Jesse: What is it? What is it?
Angie: The day that I came back to Pine Valley, it suddenly hit me. She's not a miracle, a dream. She's real. This is real, and our baby needs a mother that can take care of her.
Jesse: What are you talking about? You're an amazing mother.
Angie: Jesse, I've lost two months, two months to prepare for this child and to learn everything that I need to learn to be a mother who can't see. What if I can't protect our daughter from a danger that I can't see? I mean, it's like it's finally hit me, the reality of the choices that I've made! I was so sure that I--I was so sure that I chose the right thing, and I don't feel sure anymore. And I made you do this my way, Jesse. Did I make a mistake?
Griffin: You're asking me a lot of questions.
Kendall: It's just our lives are so different, and I'm just curious.
Griffin: We're not so different.
Kendall: Ok. You are a globetrotting doctor who saves lives. I'm a widowed mother of two.
Griffin: You're a hell of a lot more than that.
Kendall: I'm trying. I almost feel ashamed. You've pulled people out of trenches. You save lives. And here I am, barely hanging on to this normal life. Sometimes I feel like I'm hanging on so hard that I might just break.
Griffin: You're a lot stronger than you think.
Kendall: Was it something I said?
Griffin: Sometimes the worst grief isn't on the battlefield. It's watching your mom trying to hold the family together after your father's bailed and he's left her with nothing but bills. Or watching your sister, who's 10 years old, fight her heart out to beat a cancer that's taking away everything that she has. Never feel ashamed. If you stop feeling, then you're dead. People have their own way of grieving, and you're taking the steps that you need to take.
Kendall: Crawling is more like it.
Griffin: Yeah, but you're here. You're out. I know this is the first time you've gone out since Zach's died, but you did it. Is there any more questions that you're dying to ask me?
Kendall: No. I think I have all my answers.
Jesse: Baby, why didn't you tell me all this before?
Angie: How could I? I pushed you into this, and you've fallen in love with Ellie. And now we're here, and I don't know where that is.
Jesse: There's no place I would rather be. I am so in love with this baby already. And I am nothing short of astounded by the choice that you made, the guts it took.
Angie: I don't think I have any left.
Jesse: You know what? You got me. It's my turn. You lean on me. You let me be the strong one. Ok? It's ok to be afraid. You've carried the baby this far. Now you just let me carry both of you from this moment on for the rest of our lives. Ok? What do you say?
Kendall: When we were in that ambulance and you promised that you'd save my life, how could you have known that was gonna happen? You couldn't have.
Griffin: I had this picture in my head of you getting home to your boys--laughing, smiling, hugs, and kisses. I knew I had to make that happen.
Kendall: You didn't even have the right equipment.
Griffin: But I had that picture in my head, so I went for it. And I gave you my word. And when I give you my word, it's a done deal.
Kendall: For so long I have been holding my breath, waiting for I don't even know what. To stop feeling this pain over losing Zach, to find the right words to say to my boys, to be able to sleep at night with the lights off. So I'm gonna do what you did.
Griffin: Just make sure you don't do it in a wrecked ambulance.
Kendall: No. That I won't do. I'm just going to picture exactly what I need, and I'm gonna do whatever I can to make that happen. Look at what you did. Like, tonight you took two plastic cups and some champagne and a beaten old lantern, and you turned it into a beautiful four-star restaurant. And because of you, I'm alive to stuff myself with too much dessert, breathe in the spring right around the corner, and share it all with a friend.
Kendall: Thanks again for tonight. It was definitely unusual.
Kendall: Good night.
Griffin: You know, Kendall, if it would help, I could lend you my lantern, chase away the shadows.
Kendall: Thank you, but I don't think I'm gonna be needing that tonight. Thanks again, Doc.
