Alan: Ed, explain this. What does potential match mean?
Ed: It means that you met the first set of criteria to donate your bone marrow to Phillip. Now since then we've done a whole battery of tests. Turns out you are an 86% match. It's not ideal, but it's the best we can hope for given the time constraints.
Alan: So I could...
Ed: You could save Phillips life, possibly. But what you have to understand is the risk to you is extremely high. There's every chance that you could lose your life trying to save your sons.
Alan: Ed, what are the chances that this procedure would save Phillip?
Ed: No one knows. Never been done. Works great on paper.
Alan: That's not a very good sales pitch.
Ed: You want to know what I really think?
Ed: I don't think you should even contemplate this procedure. No one can guarantee any results. The risks are way high. I just, I can't recommend it.
Alan: Well, I understand.
Ed: Plus the fact that Phillip is my patient. I am medically obligated to follow his wishes.
Alan: And he's made it very clear he doesn't want to go through is procedure, right?
Ed: He doesn't want to put anyone else at risk.
Alan: Yes, uh-huh.
Ed: I have even told him that, you know, that you are a match. As a father, your position is just untenable. Your son is going to die. You are the one person who has a chance of saving him. If you try, in all probability, he'll die anyway. And so will you. And if you don't try, he is sure to die. I am truly sorry, man, but you're just... you're really screwed.
Olivia: Stop it. There's nothing that they can do for you at the hospital?
Phillip: They say they can make me more comfortable. But I don't want to spend my last few days with my family standing around bed waiting for me to die.
Olivia: Kind of like what I'm doing right now.
Phillip: Is that what you are doing?
Olivia: No. Well, okay, there was a time when I could have danced at your funeral... I might have.
Phillip: I think you did.
Olivia: Shoot, did you hear about that?
Phillip: ( Laughs ) Oh, yeah.
Olivia: Stop. Now, it just makes me really sad.
Phillip: Good. Im glad.
Olivia: Me too.
Ashlee: Okay, when I put together Coop's book, my mom said, "Why don't you write something about me?" And I said, "No, I can't because I don't know anything about you."
Ashlee: So she decided to tell everything today.
Rafe: Okay. What does that mean?
Doris: My mother is gay, Rafe.
Rafe: ( Laughs ) Okay, that funny, Ash, I guess.
Ashlee: It's very funny. And 's very true.
Rafe: Are you serious? I dont... what is this, like a bandwagon everybody is jump on?
Ashlee: No, no, this is no new bandwagony thing for Doris. She's known forever and has just kept it secret from me, for all of my life.
Rafe: I don't understand... I don't understand. Did she think you couldn't handle it or something or she thought it would upset you?
Ashlee: It upsets me that she thinks she can keep such a big secret from me, like I'd be homophobic, like she raised someone who would care. She's so angry. She's so sad. And it's because she wouldn't share this. She wouldn't let me be a part of her life. She has been so angry at me.
Ashlee: I thought it was because she didn't like me, but no, no, it's because she didn't like herself. ( Crying )
Rafe: Hey, look at me, look at me, come here, hey. If you don't mind me saying, it's not like she kept it from you forever. She told you. It's not like you found out on your own. She trusted you enough to tell you this.
Ashlee: I know. I just want my mother to be happy and she hasn't let herself because she was afraid of what her own daughter would think.
Rafe: Look, this is all her. You can't make it about you.
