(This still needs extensive editing)[ Sighs ] Hey. Hey. Hi. How you doing?
[ Sighs ] Um, I'm just reading. How's he doing? He's been moving around a lot. He's the same. Just sleeping. You know what, honey? You should probably go to sleep yourself. Monica made a room across the hall. That's really nice, but, um... I think I'll just stay in here. Plus, we ha-- we haven't even finished reading yet. Okay. Whatever you want. Do you want something to drink, honey? I'm good. Thank you. Um... "'that I do not know,' said the rat simply. 'I passed them onto you as they reached me.'" "'Ah! Now they return again, and this time full and clear!'"
[ Knock on glass ] Hi. Biz, hi. Come in. I was just about to get off work, and I was hoping you could come get a drink with me. Looks like you're kind of busy. I'm not so much working as wishing. I-I keep hoping there's something I've missed, something that will make the pieces add up to a different conclusion.
[ Sighs ] But no luck? No matter how I put the pieces together, the story still ends up the same way.
[ Sighs ] Ned: Monica? What are you doing in here? Talking to ghosts. I won't worry until you say they're talking back. Oh, they do. They do. I think sometimes, they're the only ones I can trust to say exactly the right thing.
[ Carly sighs ] Hey. What are you doing here? Well, I knew you had an appointment -- I figured I'd find you here.
[ Laughs ] Yeah. God, were our kids ever this small? Yeah. You know, when they're this, um, tiny... and helpless, you just don't realize how much they're gonna need you when they get older. Hey. I just wanted to see how you're doing. It is good to hear your voice. Yours, too. So, how's oscar doing? Mnh. There's really no change. He's sleeping right now. I'm here if you need me. I know. I love you.
[ Sighs ]
[ Laptop closes ] Trina: Homework? No, part of my detention. For beating up tyler hanson? Nice move, by the way -- the guy was a tool and a loser. Yeah, well, now I have to write an essay on what kind of friend I want to be. Can I help? You mean like write it for me? That would be a "no." But maybe I can help you focus. Think about the kind of friends you want to have. That might tell you a lot about the kind of friend you want to be. Hey.
[ Sighs ] You know
[Exhales deeply] We always end up right here, but there is a perfectly comfortable couch right in there.
[ Chuckles ] Yeah. It just feels a little too far from oscar. I know. Did you see how -- how restless he was? It's like he's fighting this with everything he's got. Yeah, well, that's him. First time oscar really asked me for anything was to teach him how to fight for something that he thought was important.
[ Sniffles ] It's just agonizing to know that this is a fight he's gonna lose.
[ Sniffles, exhales sharply ] Josslyn: "He looked, and understood the silence. With a smile of much happiness on his face
[Yawns] And something of a listening look still lingering there, the weary rat was fast asleep."
[ Sniffles ] Do I know you?
I don't think we've met... ...but, yeah, I think I know you. I keep trying to, um, take my cue from josslyn -- you know, I'm letting her spend as much time with oscar as she needs without hovering. But I-I just don't know how to help her with what i know that's coming. Joss is never gonna forget losing oscar any more than we're gonna forget... morgan. But you've done -- you've been everything. I mean, you've helped her heal. You've helped her survive. That's the best example you can give. Ned: So... what do these ghosts have to say for themselves? Oh, I'm not literally hearing voices -- at least, not yet. But it's kind of comforting to think of them all together, bickering at each other, driving each other crazy.
[ Chuckles ] Yeah. That has to be some noisy corner of wherever they are.
[ Chuckles ] Yeah, but they're all looking out for each other. The whole family -- they all have each other's backs. And I know they're gonna look out for anyone that -- that joins them when their time comes. I don't know how you do it -- pediatric oncology. Not all cases end this way. 80% of children with cancer survive five years or more from the time they're diagnosed. Not nearly enough time.
[ Papers rustle ] We're getting there. When a patient comes to see me after five years, healthy and happy, that makes it all the more worthwhile. And for the ones you can't save, I know you've made their passage a little easier.
[ Sighs ] I can't help but keep wondering if maybe oscar's not fighting a losing battle... that the doctors are wrong.
[ Chuckles ] That's called "magical thinking."
[ Sighs ] I've done my share of it.
[ Chuckles ] I know it's not rational, but, uh... I could certainly use some magic right about now. Joss! Joss, wake up! Oscar? The -- the woman... what woman? I don't -- I-I don't -- I don't know. Are you okay? I don't understand it, but I... I feel better.
[ Breathing sharply ] Better? Yeah. Like I'm gonna be all right.
hey. Hey. What are you doing? No, it's -- oscar! It's okay. I-I feel -- no, no, no, no, no. You need to wait. Wait a second. I feel really good. Hold on. Dr. Nero! Drew! Come here immediately! Don't move. Stop. What's -- what's going on? Hey, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. No, no. What are you doing? Hold on. Hold on. Hey, hey, hey. Don't, don'T. L-look, I'll get the wheelchair. Oscar, don't stand. No, I don't want that, dad. What do you mean? I don't -- I don't need it. Look. H-- wow. Does this mean he's gonna be all right? I don't know what it means. We have to wait for his test results. How is this possible? I mean, oscar was too sick to even move, let alone get out of bed. Monica, is there an explanation? A miracle? Well, there is a phenomenon known as the "end-of-life rally." That sometimes happens when a patient is taken off all the medications and his body returns to its natural balance. Some people, even doctors, think that there's a-a psychological, even spiritual component that can't even be explained scientifically. Like a reprieve? Well, if the patient is terminal, it's very short-term. It's really a chance to say goodbye. And when that happens, the end is -- is very near. Hey. We might be here a while, so... he's coming. Hey, oscar. You okay? I'm okay. Monica: Doctor? Terry: We put oscar through a series of tests and scans. I had to consult with some of my colleagues, but... we've reviewed all the results.
Oscar? Oh, my god, oscar! What -- what happened? Drew: You didn't hear the doctor? Your tumor shrunk. Really? Wait. So -- so he has more time? It appears so. How much? Weeks? Months? That's the thing. Oscar, you seem to have experienced spontaneous regression.
[ Chuckles ] What does that mean? The tumor's not just smaller -- it's practically nonexistent. You got to be kidding me. What do you mean practically? There's scar tissue and a small tumor, but all the tests indicate that it's benign. Ned: Well, uh, that's incredible. It is a miracle. I've never seen anything like this before. That's why it took so long -- we went over the tests again and again to make sure there's no error. And there wasn'T. The results were always the same. And oscar himself is confirmation. His symptoms have receded.
[ Breathes deeply ] Yeah, I, um -- I feel great.
[ Chuckles ] A little hungry, actually.
[ Laughter ] Can I, uh, get out of t-this chair now? By all means. Okay, mom. You can let go. I'm not going anywhere.
[ Laughter ] No. [ Sniffles ] You're really not.
[ Sniffles ] Terry, thank you. Terry: Of course. -Thank you so much. -All right, kid. I wasn't ready to let you go. I wasn't ready to go, either. Thank you very much. Of course, of course. Hey.
[ Crying ] This is the best day of my life! I've -- I've got to tell my mom. Kim?
[ Sniffles ] It's a miracle. Oscar's tumor is gone. Today is the first day of the rest of your life. What do you want to do with it? I don't know. But I-I feel like I-i have something to do. My mom and sonny are here. I told them that I have a surprise, but I didn't tell them what. I want to see their faces. They're gonna be blown away. Sonny: Can you believe we'll be seeing our own baby, uh, come this fall? Carly: I know. I know. But I feel a little guilty welcoming our baby into the world when kim and drew are preparing to say goodbye to theirs, you know? No one's saying goodbye. What? Oscar? How are you here? He's okay, mom. Oscar's gonna be okay.
[ Laughing ] That's -- that's wonderful! Oh, my gosh!
[ Laughs ] Uh, I don't know -- how? I have no idea. But... ...I'm starting to understand why.
Well, I mean, it's not a mystery. You're here because you weren't ready to go yet. I definitely wasn't ready to let you go. Carly: Uh, none of us were.
[ Laughs ] However it happened, I'm glad you're sticking around, oscar. Yeah. Thank you. And thanks for being there for joss. I know I put her through a lot. Hey, you're worth it. Don't you ever do that to me again.
[ Chuckles ] It's over. We can move on. Hi.
[ Laughing ] This is incredible. Oh, my gosh. -I know. -It's amazing! -How you doing? -We're stalking our son. I don't want to let him out of my sight. Will you come here?
[ Laughter ] Oh. Woman: Dr. Nero? Mrs. Oshiro.
[ Chuckles ] Hey. That's my riku. Oh, congratulations. Aww. I was disappointed when you took a leave of absence. I would have liked you to be there for the birth. Oh. I'm sorry. But I am happy to see that you have a healthy and beautiful boy. I don't mean to pry, but are you all right? For some time, I had to put things on hold, but, um... I'll be coming back to work now.
[ Chuckles ] Hey. I've got something for you. Wait here. I'll be right back. I'll be here. Okay, so, listen. Ned is insisting on a celebration -- something about throwing away an old list and starting a new one. -Mm. -You up for a party? That sound good? I mean, do you -- you don't -- you don't have to. You don't have to if you're too tired. Mom, mom. Maybe you should just rest a little bit. Mom, I'm good. I'm good. You don't have to worry about me anymore. Oh, no, I-I will always worry about you. Yeah, you're not gonna escape past that one, kid.
[ Sighs ] A party sounds great. Awesome. Good. I'll get the car.
[ Chuckles ] Joss and I will meet you two outside. Okay. Um, we will meet you at the front entrance. Okay.
[ Sighs ] Hey. I just -- I wanted to say thank you, guys, for being so great to me, even when I didn't deserve it. Hey. You care about my daughter. That's all the reason I need to be "great" to you. Yeah, but when I met you, you knew I was a part of that party joss threw, but you gave me a chance, anyway. Well, it was the tie and the flowers that helped your sales pitch.
[ Laughs ]
[ Laughs ] When I first met you, I was terrified. But I don't -- not the first time. Well, once I realized who you were. Right. I'd heard a lot about you. Well, you know, it's like... I know I came on a bit too strong. I was just being protective of -- of josslyn. I know. Yeah. I-I'm sorry. You made me promise to you that I'd never hurt joss... ...and I didn't keep that promise. I broke her heart. Let me tell you something, oscar -- I just wanted you to treat josslyn right. And it was wrong of me... to want you to promise, 'cause, in life, there's no such thing as love without heartache.
[ Footsteps approaching ] That's right, you know? It's only when you care so much that you can be hurt so deeply. You guys are so understanding.
[ Both laugh ] Thank you, really, for forgiving me. I don't ever want joss's heart to break again, but I'm really glad to know that you'll be there for her if it does. You mean...you'll be there for me. I-I couldn't have said it yesterday, but... now I know that we've got forever. We can finish filling out the rest of the days. These past few weeks have been -- yeah, we've missed a lot of our plans. Yeah. But that's over now. Let's see what we have for today. Well, unless you've written "chocolate volcano at charlie's," you don't have to look it up.
[ Chuckles ] Here he is!
[ Cheers and applause ] Hey, sonny! It's good to see you there. -Hey! -Yeah! This is amazing! Ah! I cannot believe it. Oh, I know. I know. I can't believe it, either, but oscar's in remission! Yeah!
[ Cheers and applause ] And, uh, when are you coming back to work? Because I'm a little shorthanded. Plus, I need somebody to help me with my chocolate volcanoes. Mm.
[ Laughter ] Right. Cameron: Dude, this is so insane! I mean, like, a good insane, but still. And everyone at school's gonna go crazy, 'cause everyone's just been kind of numb. But, uh, now she doesn't have to worry about missing so many classes that she has to go to summer school. Summer school? It wouldn't have mattered. No way was I gonna leave your side. Okay, everybody, grab a glass. Okay. -Grab a glass. -Grabbed. -All right. -Everyone have one? Yes, sir. I would like to propose a toast. Hear, hear! All: Hear, hear! Uh, if it's all the same to you, I'd like to be the one to make a toast.
There are plenty of times I've forgotten to show my appreciation and to show how much I care and times I went out of my way to do the complete opposite. And I regret some of the things I said and some of the things I will never say. So the only thing that really matters is... I just want you to know how much I love each and every one of you. My life is awesome because you all are in it. So...here's to you.
[ Laughter ] Cheers.Cheers. Cheers.Cheers. Now eat your chocolate volcanoes!
[ Laughter ] Mm.
[ Chuckles ] It was a nice speech. Thanks. Of course, we all knew that. What -- that you're all awesome? No, that you love us and we love you. Can i ask you something? Of course you can ask me something. What's up? What's going on? What would have happened if I did die? What do you mean? What would have happened to you, mom, and joss? What would happen? I... I don't know. You know, this is something I don't want to have to think about anymore. I know, but I-I was thinking about this these past few days, and... I would have wanted to know that you'd be all right. Oscar, we wouldn't be okay. None of us would be okay without you. Yeah, but you'd have to move on and move forward, live your best life. Okay, look. Yeah, you're right. I guess so. Life moves on. We carry our burdens. We wear our scars. But you know what? There's no point. You're doing fine. There's nothing to worry about.
[ Chuckles ] So, right now, this is a celebration, so let's stop talking about this, okay? I love you. I love you, too. Oscar, come on. Come, come. Your mother beckons. She does it a lot. You gotta go. You gotta go. Give me one second. Give me one second. You want me to cover for you? One second. You -- cover for me. One second. Yes. Give him a second. What? Do you want some cake?
How is it that this baby
is happier in your arms
than anywhere else
on the planet? Great taste.
[ Laughs ]
Oh, I don't --
I wonder if this baby
is gonna inherit your ego.
[ Laughs ]
you're many things,
and a great dad
is one of them,
but you are not modest.
[ Laughs ]
And the whole island
smells like this.
The air is just
so warm and so soft,
you can't help
And ned and I can't wait
to go back.
And do not argue with me --
we're taking you with us.
[ Both laugh ] Thank you.
Oh, my god.
Oh. I literally could not
believe it when I saw it. So, you had no idea he was going to propose?
No, none. I mean, not only
is he a romantic,
but he is really great
at keeping a secret.
[ Chuckles ]
Class of 2021 forever.
And now we've got
the entire summer. Yeah, well, it's the last one
before college. Better make it count. Hey, joss, you ready?
I can't wait.
[ Indistinct conversations ]
[ Glass thuds ] Hey, uh, oscar? Yeah? Um, I just wanted to say I'm sorry for not visiting you as much as I could have in the hospital. I...I was afraid to see you die, and I just couldn't face it. Yeah. Guess we all have to face it sometime. Anyway, uh, you came through for me when I needed you the most. That meant a lot.
[ Laughter ] Look, I'm sorry for using you to push joss away. Dude, you've already apologized for that. I know, but I don't -- I don't think I thanked you enough for still being my friend after all that went down. You know, a good friend. A real friend. The kind who's there for me when I needed you. The kind who will always be there for joss when she needs you. Uh, okay.
So take the wheel and ride hey, you two. Hey. What are you guys up to? I wish I could tell you. Hey, come on, trina. Save me some!
[ Chuckles ] Well, what do you want to do tomorrow? And the day after that? And the day after that?
Get back home I'm sorry. I need -- I need to go home now.
Kim: And oscar -- he was 10 when he got his first guitar. And, oh, he practiced every single day. And I remember this one day I came home from work, and he was playing the most beautiful melody. And I wanted to know, you know, what was it? What -- what's this song? And he said he wrote it himself.
[ Chuckles ]
[ Indistinct conversations ] So, we're like -- what -- a quarter mile from the top? Right. And it's raining and pouring. That summer rain, where it's just buckets. And I'm old, so I'm breathing really heavy, and this kid's just sprinting all the way up there.
[ Laughs ] We get to the top, you can't see anything because there's this fog bank. And I'm trying to catch my breath, and he just looks around and goes, "well, dad... at least nobody else is here -- not crowded."
[ Laughs ] -That sounds like him. -I'm so glad you came to port charles. Me, too. Getting to know oscar and his family's been a privilege. Mm. -He really is quite special. -He sure is. It's so wonderful that oscar has embraced the family, even taking the quartermaine name. Well, he does the family proud. So, you want to try again for niagara falls? I don't get my license back for months. Okay, but I have
my license now, so I can drive and you can navigate. No.
Joss can navigate. Girls in the front, boys in the back so you guys can stay out of our way.
But somehow I know you must leave hey, um... it's so early. You can't leave yet. Our calendar says we're supposed to watch the stars.
And get back home oscar.
[ Door opens ] Come here. It's too early. It's -- it's still light out. You can't even see stars.
[ Quietly ] It's later than you think. I'm sorry. Are -- are you tired? You must be. I've done all I can do for tonight, joss. I don't understand.
[ Inhales deeply ] Look... I now know why I was given this time. I didn't want to let go. Okay? I kept hearing people asking me to hang on and to stay... and I tried. But as long as I waited, everyone else was waiting, too. Kind of like in a limbo. No one could move forward.
[ Voice breaking ] No one wanted to move forward without you. Joss, I need to be the one to let go, okay? Your mom and -- and mr. Corinthos should be sharing their joy about [Chuckling] The baby they're having. My mom should be helping people bring joy into the world, helping families bring their children. My dad should be climbing new mountains, living his life, and you... joss, you should be living yours. What are you saying?
[ Sighs ] It may not have been long, but my life has been full. I've had more happiness than a lot of people have in a lifetime, and...unlike many, I've been surrounded by love. I love you so much, joss. I really do. I love you, too.
[ Exhales sharply ] It's other people's turn to find out what they're meant to find. I'm ready to go home, joss.
[ Yawning ] "But no answer came. He looked, and understood the silence. With a smile of much happiness on his face, and something of a listening look still lingering there, the weary rat was fast asleep." Oh. You ready to tear yourself away?
[ Laughs ] I am. I am. Come on.
[ Sighs ] You know, new life is such a miracle. Can I take a rain check on that drink, biz? Yeah. Of course. Let's do it soon, okay? Deal. Okay. Good night. Good night. Hey.
[ Exhales deeply ] You did everything you could for oscar. I know. But thanks for saying it. The end.
[ Key clacks ]
[ Sighs ] Finished? Yeah. Um, I'm gonna get some fuel. You want some onion rings? Mm. "I have a friend who was willing to push away the girl he loved to save her from being hurt. I was pissed at him for it, but I realize now that, even if it was a mistake, his intentions were the best. Putting someone else's good ahead of your own? I'm not sure I've got it in me, but that's the kind of friend I want to be." What can I get you? Onion rings. No. Make that a chocolate volcano. Oscar's favorite. I, uh, think you've spent enough time with ghosts for one night.
[ Chuckles ] What do you say we go back to the house? Good idea.
[ Sighs ] You know, I'm hoping I have quite a few years left, but... when my time comes, there's gonna be one hell of a reunion.
[ Laughs ]
[ Sighs ] Good night, my darling son A.J. Good night, alan, my love. And good night, edward, you old grouch. And, lila, my sweet lila.
[ Smooches ] Happy birthday.
[ Olivia sniffles ]
[ Sighs ] Lila and edward. What a beautiful family you've made.
[ Exhales ]
[ Exhales sharply ] Hey. Kim? Did you feel that?
[ Sighs ] I love you, joss. It's gonna be all right.
