(This still needs extensive editing)I'm sorry, dad. Why are you sorry? Because you drove all the way to school to watch me practice, and -- and I could barely make it through stretches. Well, first of all, school's not very far. And, second, you've been through an emotional trauma, joss. Okay? I mean, if you were hit by a car, you wouldn't be expected to show up at practice for a while.
[ Scoffs ] Still, I hate quitting. Well...don't try to think of it as -- as quitting, you know? Give yourself credit for getting dressed, for showing up. I don't know how I did it. I don't know how I'm gonna do any of it. Come here. Josslyn came home early from school? Yes. I knew something like this was gonna happen. I almost didn't let her go. It's too much too soon. No, no. I think it's good that she's going. Really? Yeah. She's got to find her way. She's got to figure out what works for her, what doesn'T. It's better for her to be on her feet than curled up in a ball in the dark. That's probably gonna happen, too. Who am I kidding? You know it's gonna happen. And when it does, we're gonna be there. Hey. Hi. Can I, uh, get you a coffee? No. I just came by to thank you for re-hiring kristina. I know you didn't have to do it, but I'm glad that you did. You know what? Re-hiring kristina is the best thing that's happened in the last couple days. I'm really sad about oscar. I really admired him. In the short amount of time that kid had, he -- he really lived, you know? How many people can truly say that? Dude, you're off the clock. The judge is not gonna give you extra credit for overtime. So come on. Uh, I'll take you to kelly's, buy you a burger. What do you say? Can you just stop? Stop what? What -- what -- what is it that I'm stopping? All this "bonding" garbage. Just say how it is -- you can't stand me. You're just doing this to impress my mom and my brothers. Okay, I get it. I do. Hold on a second. I get it. I get -- I get
[Clears throat] How you feel about me, and I can't -- look, I-I don't agree with some of the things that you do. I don't understand why you do half of the things that you do, but, cameron, here's the thing. The more I do get to know you, the more I admire and respect you. So I'll just keep at it until maybe one day we get to the point where we can do better than just tolerate each other. And, for the record, I'm not just doing this for your mother, who I love completely. I am doing this for myself. And I know...that I told you that I would get to the point where you would one day respect me, and I know I have not yet earned that respect, but I will. I love watching danny and leo play, having so much fun. Makes it all a little easier to bear. Thank you. Hey. Kim, please, why don't you sit down? Oh, no, no, no. I'm fine. Are you sure? Yeah. It's just strange, you know?
[ Chuckles ] It's just, um... I've been preparing for this day for a while, and... I just thought that, you know... I don't know, it's here now. And oscar's gone, and now I'm not really sure what to do. Well, your son was way ahead of you on that one. Because oscar had a plan.
What if it never gets better? What if I feel like this forever? Like I'm drowning and I can't break through the water? It will get better. I mean... how do you know? Because I've been there. And, unfortunately, so have you. You remember how you felt after morgan died? Like you couldn't go on? But you did anyway. Even though it was hard every day. Time heals everything, joss. I promise.
[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, my god. What? Oscar. They're having a memorial service for oscar. When? Today. Today? Yeah. "Oscar nero quartermaine invites you to a celebration at 5:00 P.M. Today. Rice plaza. No black ties, black coats, or black dresses. And no tears." Hey, um, did you guys get this? We just did. Um, this is the last thing I feel like doing, and I don't think I'm ready to do it. But I have to go. Do I have to go? Okay, listen, you don't have to go. But I think you'll deeply regret it if you don'T. We'll be there for you. Yeah. You can do this. We'll do it together. Yeah. I guess I better get changed.
[ Sighs ] Oh. Hey. Did you get a text about a celebration for oscar? Yeah, I did. Yeah. He... was such a wonderful kid. I know. I know. See you at 5:00? See you at 5:00. Trina: Hey. Thought I'd find you here. Did you get this? Mm-hmm. I don't think I want to go. Um, you're going. Joss needs us, cam, and oscar's obviously counting on us. We're her friends. We have to step up. Do you want to go together? Yeah. But you need to change. You smell like garbage. Thank you. No, I mean like literal garbage. Huh. I wonder why. Ned: Oscar was extremely adamant about not wanting a funeral. He didn't want that sadness surrounding the day. He wanted his family and his friends to come together, but not to mourn. Instead to raise a glass to his life. And he said that we could say nice things about him if we really wanted to.
[ All chuckle ] But the point was -- is -- for us to help each other. Yeah. To lean on each other. And, in remembering him
[Sighs] Perhaps bring a smile to our face. Well, if that's what he wanted, that's exactly what he's gonna get.
All right, what do you want me to do?
[ Speaks indistinctly ] Okay. Michael: Hey. Hey. I see you got the same text that I did. Yeah, I got the memo -- "no black." Hey. Hey, you guys, welcome. Thanks for coming. Why don't you just hang out? And all will be explained as soon as everyone gets here. Okay, thank you. Hey. How you guys holding up? I'm okay. Thank you. Yeah, uh, same. How's monica? Not good. You'd think with all the people still living in the house, it wouldn't feel so empty, but, uh, it does. Especially for her. Did you know about this? Uh, I knew that ned and olivia were planning something. They just, uh -- they kept the details quiet. Well, it's really sweet. Michael. Hey. How you doing? Not great. I mean, I'm here. I'm supposed to be fine, but I'm not. I don't know how to deal with it. What if I start crying and I can't stop? Well, hey, if that happens, it happens. That's okay. Come here. Circumstances notwithstanding, it's wonderful to see you. Always good to see you. You have a wonderful daughter. Thank you. She has been unbelievably strong and supportive through all of this, which is not an easy feat for anyone, let alone someone so young. She's impressive. Thanks. So was oscar. I wish you got a chance to know him. Well, I feel like I did, you know, through talking to josslyn. I'm glad that they had each other, even if that time was cut short. Me, too. Hey, how's -- how's, uh -- how's josslyn? Uh... she's having a hard time.
[ Sighs ] I know she's gonna be okay eventually, but, you know, till she gets there... until she gets there, well, she's got us.
[ Chuckles ] Hey. Hey. Oh, my gosh. It's so good to see you. I just... wanted to let you know, you should be really proud. Your daughter is really special. Yeah, well, she's been making me proud since birth, but this is a whole new level. It is. Hey. You made it. Thought we wouldn't? Well, I almost didn'T. But then I knew it'd be a huge cop-out. How are you doing? Terrible. You? Awful. The worst. At least we're all on the same page. You know what I've been thinking about a lot? What? Our trip up to niagara falls. Before everything got crazy and oscar got sick. How fun was that? The best. Remember you were driving in the fast lane and everyone kept passing you up on the right? I was going the speed limit.
[ Scoffs ] Minus 15 miles per hour. O.M.G., And that old lady rolled down her window and yelled, "move out of the way, grandpa!" Ha, ha, ha.
[ Laughs ] I'm glad you find my driving so funny. If oscar was here, he would have my back. Joss, I'm sorry. No. Don't be. You're right. He'd have your back. And we have yours. True story. My mom is here with oscar's doctor. I'm gonna say "hi." Oscar wanted me to tell you something after he was gone. What is it? You still owe him that hike up to falcon mountain. Whether you want to or not. And all the way to the top -- no turning back halfway. What? [ Scoffs ] No "I love you. You're the best thing to ever happen to me"? He wants you to get your hike on, girl. That is very oscar. But he did love you, and you were the best thing to ever happen to him. Oh, I'm so glad you're here. Yeah, oscar was family. Yeah, and the family is getting smaller by the minute. Well, I'm still here. And I'm not going anywhere. And neither am I. Oh, um, this is kind of perfect. Oscar wanted you to have this, and he wanted you to open it with monica and his dad. Read it first -- the letter. Okay.
[ Clears throat ]
[ Exhales deeply ] Um..."dear jason, I know you don't spend a lot of time there, but I've come to think of the quartermaine house as home. Uh, there's only -- only one thing missing -- a tree house for leo and scout and danny... and all the other kids who'll come along." Uh, "so michael had the plans drawn up. But there's one catch." "I want you and my dad to build it..." "...together. And when it's done and the kids are climbing all over it... know that I'll be there, too." You in? I'm in. Everybody, we want to thank you all for coming to oscar's celebration. And it is oscar's celebration. Olivia: Yeah. Oscar was very clear on what he wanted. He said the worst part of any funeral is the funeral. He said the good stuff is what happens after the funeral when everyone talks and tells stories and laughs.
[ Sighs ]
[ Voice breaking ] So he decided to skip all the morose stuff and go right to the party. So, if you want to remember oscar in the way he wanted to be remembered, have a seat, help yourself to food and refreshments, and, uh, if you're compelled, share a funny story about oscar. Because, um, he'd rather have you smile than have tears today. So, I know it's gonna be hard, but I'm gonna try. So enjoy yourself, everyone. Please. For oscar. All: For oscar.
[ Indistinct conversations ] Okay, um, everybody, if anyone would like to speak or share a story about oscar, the floor is now open. Okay, um [Clears throat] Well, um [Chuckles] I know we're supposed to tell stories about oscar. I don't really have one of those. Um... but what I can say is that I knew oscar was really brave when he started dating my sister.
[ Laughter ] I mean, 'cause let's admit, you know, josslyn can be a bit much. Excuse me? Strong-willed, opinionated. I have no idea where she gets it from.
[ Laughter ] She does like 340 things really well. I mean, she gets good grades. She rides. She's extremely competitive. Now, I'll admit. I was a little worried that, uh, guys would be intimidated by her. But, um, not oscar. No, oscar, he saw what an amazing woman my sister is underneath, and he got her sense of humor. He knew how to make her laugh. And...it didn't take me long to realize that my sister's feelings were safe with oscar and that he was a true gentleman and a true quartermaine. And the way he bonded with my -- my grandmother and he accepted all of us as family. I'm very lucky to have known oscar. And you will be missed. Woman: That was nice. Hi. My name is cameron webber. I don't know why I just said that. You all know who I am.
[ Light laughter ] In the beginning, oscar and I were not friends. Not until he started dating joss. Do you remember fourth of july? Okay, so, joss and oscar were sitting on a picnic blanket waiting for the fireworks to start, and I just show up, sit down, and start eating their snacks. If I was oscar and joss was my girlfriend, I would've been like, "get out of here, dude."
[ Laughter ] But oscar made room... because that's what he did. No matter who you were, oscar always made room, and he would keep making room and keep making room until you really pissed him off. Then he would punch you in the face.
[ Laughter ] Michael said that oscar was brave. He proved that when he found out he had cancer. That's when i found out what it really means to be brave. I-it's not about the physical stuff. It's about fighting a losing battle and refusing to give up. I kept waiting for him to get bitter or angry. Or, I don't know, feel sorry for himself, but he never did. I mean, he -- he had his moments, but he never stayed in them, when he really easily could have.
I would have. Oscar stuck it out until the very end. And he gave every day he had to the people he loved. For them. I-it would've been way easier just to let go, but he held on, for them. That's brave. That's courage. And I am so grateful that he's taught me that.
-Well... -sam, you okay? Doing good? -I'm good. You good? -Yeah, yeah. You don't have to do this. Sam: That was a great speech. I know. It was nice.
[ Indistinct conversations ] Thank you.
[ Clears throat ] Um... I had a crush on oscar from the very beginning.
[ Chuckles ] The quiet and mysterious "new guy." Remember, mom? Yes.
[ Chuckles ] And we didn't cross paths much at school. Um, it actually wasn't until lila's kids when we were both working there that we got the chance to talk. And it was so easy. We actually talked. About life, about things that mattered. Over that summer, my crush faded... and I got to see the real oscar. And, man, that -- that guy was so much better than the one that I had dreamt of in my head. Um... he was funny and smart
[Sighs] And he was a ridiculously good listener. And, yeah, there -- there were a lot of things that we didn't have in common -- things that I liked that he didn't and vice versa... ...but he was always my biggest supporter. I hope... he felt like I was his. Oh, he did. And, um, cameron's right. Oscar, by the end... I mean... of course he wanted to live more than anything, but he knew that wasn't happening. He knew that he was going to a different place. And he wasn't afraid. The part that he hated the most was leaving all of us here to be sad. So this? Having a party? Skipping all of the bad stuff and going straight to the good -- that's exactly who he was. And it's not that the hard part isn't there. It is. But it's about where you put the emphasis. And oscar wanted to emphasize the good. I'm not there yet, but I'm gonna really try. Because the good part... was getting to know him. And love him. And be loved by him. And, um [Sniffles] I never want to forget. Well, I guess now is as good a time as any. Oh, oscar. You know, it's a scary thing to find out that you have a teenage son. The great majority of his childhood, you weren't there for. All those hard times, you weren't around, and all he needed was a father. And, intellectually, you know it's a huge bond, but you don't know how to form it. There's not a blueprint. But oscar made it easy. Because the more time I spent with the kid, the more I wanted to spend with him. I was endlessly fascinated by my son. The way his brain worked. His curiosity, his generosity. The ways that we were the same and different. I'm a bit of a guarded person. Oscar wasn'T. He was open. His heart was too big not to share it. We would go on these hikes, and, uh, he would talk the entire way.
[ Light laughter ] He'd either tell me more about his life or ask me about mine. All six years that I can remember. But it was a gift. And I wanted so much more. But the time that I did have... the fact that I was able to be his father -- that we had the chance to make it work -- I will be... eternally thankful. To know oscar is to love him, right?
[ Laughter ] Yes. Ah, but to be his dad... I will forever carry him in my heart. Okay, well, oscar didn't want the party to end here. So, if you'll, uh, honor his last wishes and kindly follow me to the park.
So, um, every bag is full of flower seeds. There's wildflowers and annuals. Yeah, we thought oscar deserved more than just a few bouquets. We wanted him to have an entire field of flowers. And thanks to the pc parks & recreation commission, this section of the park will now be known as... oscar's meadow. -Wow. -Oh. We really can't thank you enough. The idea was to spread a few seeds today, and, hopefully, in a month, this entire meadow will be a -- just a sea of flowers. Olivia: Is everybody ready? -Yeah! -Yeah. Come on. How about on the count of three? Got your seeds in your hands? Yeah, yeah. Everybody ready? Everybody ready? -Yep. -Oh, my god. Okay, on the count of three. One...two...three! Yeah!
[ Laughter ] Okay, well, that officially concludes oscar's celebration. Thank you all, again, for coming -- um, I-I-if I can say something, um, if you don't mind. Of course, of course. Absolutely. Yeah. Okay. Um, first of all -- sorry. This has just been beautiful from start to finish, and it had oscar written all over it. I'm so very thankful. It was our honor and a privilege. So... I had oscar as a single mom, and, for essentially all of his life, it was just him and me -- mom and son against the world. But then when I got oscar's cancer diagnosis, I-it suddenly occurred to me that maybe I had been a little selfish. That I hadn't given him an opportunity to get to know his family... yeah. ...If they were out there. And so that's why we came to port charles. And I'm so glad that we did. Oh, because, oscar, he just -- he blossomed. He met josslyn, and he made friends, and he had places to go and people to see.
[ Chuckles ] And he got to know all of you. And he got to love you. And I cannot express enough how much that enriched his life. Monica. You -- oh, you just opened your arms to oscar, and you welcomed him into the family. And you taught him what it meant to be a quartermaine. And you gave him the comfort of knowing where he came from. And, drew, when oscar found you, oh, gosh. He was so thrilled.
[ Chuckles ] And the bond that you two shared. Things you taught him. How you loved him and listened to him and understood and supported him. And how you gave him courage. In the end, when... frankly, mine had run out. And josslyn. Come here. You. Thank you. Thank you for being oscar's first love. And, you know, anyone with less strength would've just run. So thank you... for just being you. I hope that you come back to this meadow...often, and you think of him. And I hope that you go on to live an incredible and happy life. Because that's what he would want for you.
[ Indistinct conversations ] Olivia, ned. Hey. You guys putting this together -- I, uh -- I don't have the words to thank you. Well... we loved him. And we are so very sorry he's gone. But the meadow... oh. Look, we know that it could never possibly make up for the loss, but it's just, um... a way to put a little beauty back in the world. Thank you. And I hope you know he'd be there every day. You know what? I believe he still will be. Cameron was very impressive. Yeah, he always comes through when it matters. Yeah. He's a really, really good kid.
[ Sighs ] I know. And things between cameron and i are gonna get better soon. I promise. I have no doubt. Hey. Hey. How lucky are we to still have our beautiful daughter? Well, josslyn's got a-a long road ahead of her, but she jumped a hurdle today. Mm-hmm. And there's more to come. I'm sure there's gonna be a few more.
[ Chuckles ] I'll take 'em. Yeah. Okay, um, well, what do you guys think about spending the fourth in oscar's meadow? I'm down. Sounds like a plan. You did really great today. Thanks. You, too. Hello? What about me? What about you? I'm your pillar of support. The rock that holds you up. The ballast that steadies your ship? You know what you are? You're about to insult me now, aren't you? A really good friend. Aww!
[ Laughs ] You guys want to head to kelly's, get some food? We just had pizza. Dessert, then. Whatever. Um, yeah, but I'll ask my mom. Yeah, me, too. "Ballast"? Wait, yeah, really impressive. Hey. There you are. I would ask you if you were okay, but... god, I know you're not. I just... I wanted you to know that I-I think that you were a great dad to oscar, and you proved it every day. And...even today. Thanks for saying that. I mean, the celebration was perfect. It was everything he wanted. I just can't stop wishing that it was a birthday party or something and he were here. He should be laughing with his friends with his arm around his girl. He didn't get enough time, and I didn't get enough time with him. Sam, I-I need your help. Yeah, of course, anything. I want to be the best father I can be for scout. You are. I want her to know that I love her. I want her to know that I'll be there for her. I want her to know that I'm gonna support her. I don't want to hold on too tight or treat her like she's glass. What I don't want her knowing is that I'm always gonna be afraid of losing her, too. Hey, hey. Don't say that, okay? I know you. And I know you're not gonna give in to that fear. And I know you're gonna give our daughter the best of yourself -- all of yourself -- every day. The same way you did for oscar. I am so sorry. Thank you. If you want to be alone --
[ Sniffles ] I'm sorry. That's okay. No, I-I mean, I can leave. No, no, it's fine.
[ Chuckles ] It's fine. Wow. I know it doesn't feel like that right now, but there's gonna come a point where you're gonna get comfort in knowing all the lives that oscar touched. I know right now you feel like you're a void. Or maybe you feel like you've got to make a choice between... this horrible emptiness you feel inside or the rage that you, you know -- you have because life is so unfair.
[ Sniffles ] But let me tell you something. Oscar wouldn't have wanted that for you. No. No, he would not. You got to keep going.
[ Chuckles ] You got to... you got to focus on -- on how much you loved him, how much he loved you. And, you know, I don't know when, but sooner or later, you're gonna find peace in that. Yeah. I'm sorry. Sonny. Thank you. You're not actually putting that on your car, right? Okay, come on. It is not every day that your kid wins a prestigious writing award. Indulge me. And it's the first of many, I am sure. Now one day we'll get to say, "we knew you when." Joss, would you mind? Come on. Uh, yeah, no, of course not. Great. Thank you. Just breathe through it, kid. That's what it is.
[ Chuckles ] Okay. Put that -- mom, can you put that thing down? No! Come on. You're stuck with it and me. I love you, my beautiful boy. I always will.
