Katie: I know this is hard for you, Kim, for the whole family.
Kim: I'm not here for sympathy. I mean, the only thing I really care about is what's going on with Chris now. I want to be able to support him and to protect him.
Katie: So do I.
Kim: You know, when I first found out that you and Chris had started to see one another, I was very concerned.
Katie: I'm not surprised.
Kim: Not because I didn't like you. Not because I didn't think you were good enough for him. I mean, I adore you. You must know that. I was just afraid that you weren't ready for a -- another relationship. You were still mourning Brad.
Katie: I know. I didn't think I was ready either. But Chris was the one who helped me realize that I could move on.
Kim: Yeah, well, those are very hopeful words. But your actions indicate that you have not moved on, and Chris needs you right now.
Katie: I know. I just needed a little time to pull myself together.
Kim: He's running out of time. I also think he's given up fighting. And to fight, he needs to be able to draw on the people who love him.
Katie: I do love him.
Kim: You do?
Kim: Then you need to do something very important for him.
Katie: What, what? I will do anything. Just tell me what to do.
Kim: Consider staying away.
Katie: I don't blame you for being angry with me, Kim.
Kim: I'm not angry at you. I'm angry at the situation. I am terrified. Oh, god! I have always felt that I had some control over what happened to my family, and at this most agonizing moment, I have no control.
Katie: I know. I understand that. But the only person who can ask me to stay away is Chris, and he hasn't done that.
Kim: What you don't understand is he never will! He'll allow you to draw on his strength, however much is left. And I can't afford to let you do that.
Katie: I can do this, Kim. I really can.
Kim: Then you should be by his side, not hiding out, not sticking your head in the sand with your work. Katie, you admit you're scared. That doesn't make you a bad person. It makes you a person who's worthy of -- of compassion, worthy of understanding, and also makes you a person I can't afford at the moment.
Katie: I just need a little time.
Kim: Time is what we don't have. Let the people who really love him, who are strong enough to face what he's gonna have to face take care of him.
Katie: That's not fair. You are not being fair.
Kim: Oh, hell, no! Of course I'm not being fair! My god, I'm his mother! I want the best for him. I want to pick those doctors up and shake them till their heads rattle and they know what to do for him! I want you and all of us, the whole family, to be as strong as they can. So if you can rise above your -- your fear and help him win this fight --
Katie: I can do that. I can do it, Kim. I can. Please believe me.
Kim: What I've said from the beginning is ultimately the truth. I have no control. All I can do is beg you to stop refusing to make a choice. Look into your heart. Find out if you're at a place in your life where you can bear this pain without turning away. I love you, and I will not love you any less if you can't
Katie: How is he?
Reid: It's pretty much the same as when you left.
Katie: I feel terrible for doing that.
Reid: So why did you listen to me?
Katie: You're gonna tell me now that I shouldn't have?
Reid: What do I know about the right or wrong thing to do when it comes to sticking by somebody you love? I'm an idiot when it comes to romance. You know that.
Katie: Oh, great. Make me feel worse than I already do.
Reid: I'm trying to correct a mistake here.
Katie: You're actually admitting to one? Wow.
Reid: When it comes to relationships, I seem to be making mistakes left and right.
Katie: I'm sure Luke will forgive you.
Reid: Time will tell.
Katie: I'm scared.
Reid: I know. Can I tell you something that I learned today?
Reid: It's stupid to try to avoid love because it scares you.
Katie: I'm not scared of love. I'm scared of Chris dying.
Reid: But if that happens, wouldn't you want to be there for his last moments?
Katie: Oh, great. Just say it like --
Reid: No, listen. You know me. You know I don't sugarcoat things. But the way I see it is if he has a chance to live, I think you would hate yourself for not being there with him to help him fight. Wouldn't you?
Reid: Then dry your eyes, blow your nose, get your butt back to the hospital where you belong.
