Sharon: Nick, Noah. What happened with Victor, and I'm in shock. I can't believe that Victor took three bullets for Jack. I-- call me, please. Uh, Noah told me that, um, Victor's out of surgery now. But things like this can be touch-and-go, and I really wish I were at the hospital with you. Please give Victor my love. (Sighs)
Ashley: Oh, God, what have I done?
Woman: B.P.'s 65 over 40 and dropping.
Adam: Where are you taking him?
Dr. Swift: Back to the O.R.
Ashley: Oh, God, this is my fault.
Nick: Why, what'd you do?
Ashley: I told him I was leaving him.
Victoria: How could you do that?
Adam: She is not responsible for this.
Nick: Mom, are-- are you still there?
Nick: Paul, it's me. Can you, uh, can you call me or have my mom call me as soon as she can? It's urgent.
(Cell phone closes)
Victoria: What did Mom say earlier? Where is she? I mean, did she say that she's on her way?
Nick: (Sighs) No, but she'd better hurry.
Lily: (Sighs) I found a great picture of the three of us-- of Colleen, Sierra and me.
Cane: Yeah? Does Sierra even know what's going on?
Lily: I haven't talked to her in years.
Colleen: When I was young and Mom and I went to New York, my dad gave me this angel for good luck. And after he passed away, it was just a little reminder that he was looking over me.
Cane: Hey, hey. Hey, wh-wh-what are you doing?
Lily: Cane, Colleen needs me.
Cane: Sweetheart, Colleen is in a coma. She probably won't even know you're in the room.
Lily: You don't know that. She might.
Cane: Listen, all right? Come here. Listen. You just had chemo, all right? You can barely stand.
Lily: Cane, she's my best friend, okay? I need to be there.
Cane: O-okay. All right, listen. The hospital is full of germs, and your immune system is compromised, and that's the last place you need to be right now.
Lily: Well, you know what? I will take that risk.
Cane: Well, I won't.
Billy: Hey, uh, I hope this is the right stuff.
Traci: Oh, Sweetie, thank you. Sweetheart, Billy's here. He brought you some things from home.
Billy: Hey, CeeCee.
(Lotion cap snaps)
Traci: Mmm. (Rubs hands together) Mmm. I like your hand lotion. You're gonna have to tell me where you bought it.
(Rubs lotion on Colleen's hand)
Steve: I brought you something to eat.
Traci: Oh, thank you, Darling. Maybe later.
Billy: Hey, C. I was thinking, when you get better, we should take a trip. You keep talking about that museum in Spain-- el, uh, el Prado?
Jack: (Snaps fingers)
Billy: Well, wait till I show you the Guggenheim in Bilbao. It's gonna blow your mind.
Jack: You remember Dr. Novich?
Traci: Yes. Thank you for coming on such short notice.
Jack: Dr. Novich and her colleague just ran another C.B.F. on Colleen.
Traci: And? No, Jack. Don't you tell me. Don't you dare tell me there's no hope. There's always hope.
Dr. Novich: We also ran a C.R.S.R. It differentiates minimally conscious from a vegetative state.
Jack: There's no blood flow to the brain. It's irreversible.
Billy: Come on, guys. There's got to be something we can do here.
Steve: What about the other specialist?
Jack: He concurs.
Traci: (Sniffles) Well, then, we'll just get another doctor and another doctor after that if we have to.
Jack: Traci, I've flown in two of the top specialists in the wor--
Traci: I'm not gonna give up, Jack.
Dr. Novich: (Sighs) Colleen may only appear to be unconscious, but it's the respirator and feeding tubes that's keeping her alive.
Billy: But wait, wait, Jack. Jack, Victoria was in a coma for months.
Jack: That was different. She didn't lose all brain function.
Traci: Miracles happen every day.
Dr. Novich: I'm very sorry, Mrs. Connelly.
Traci: (Sobs) Oh, my beautiful daughter.
Jack: Traci, Colleen has been unresponsive to any stimulus test.
Traci: (Sighs heavily)
Jack: She has no awareness. The doctor says she feels no pain.
Jack: I know this is difficult.
Traci: (Sobs) No.
Jack: But the next step is removing her from life support.
Billy: You can't be serious, Jack.
Jack: Traci, look at me.
Jack: You know me. You know me.
Jack: I would not give up. I would move heaven and earth to help Colleen if I could, I can't. None of us can. This is awful, and no one should ever be asked to make the decision you have to make about your own daughter.
Traci: (Sobs) (Sniffles) H-how can I give permission to end my daughter's life? (Sniffles) Jack, I can't do it. I can't. Never. (Sniffles) (Sighs) (Sniffles, sighs)
Ashley: I said horrible things to Victor. He tried to fight Patty, and he, you know, he saved Jack's life. That's--that means something, right? And now he's fighting for his own.
Adam: It's not good for you or the baby to get yourself worked up.
Ashley: Why hasn't the doctor said anything to me? I'm Victor's wife, and I have a right to know something!
Adam: Listen, I'll find out what I can. I called Victor's driver. He's gonna pick you up and take you home so you can get some rest.
Ashley: (Sighs) I don't know where my home is, Adam. I don't even know where I want to be anymore.
Adam: Look, I'll call if there's any news.
Ashley: No, I'm gonna stay here.
Adam: Ashley, you--
Ashley: Look, don't-- just don't push me, okay?
Adam: Okay. I-I don't mean to. I-I'm just concerned. Look, uh... (Sighs) You're an amazing person. I don't know how you do it. I-I couldn't do what you're doing.
Adam: Stand by Victor's side after all that he's done to you. I mean, you tell him that you hit Nikki with the car, and he tries to make you think that you're crazy.
Adam: And--and yet, here you are, standing by his side when--when he won't even do the same for you.
Victoria: That's how he developed congestive heart failure and went into v-fib. The muscles in his ventricle just aren't strong enough to pump the blood.
Nick: What's the latest?
Ashley: Still waiting to hear.
Ashley: Dr. Swift?
Victoria: How is he?
Dr. Swift: He's stable and being prepped for surgery. We're going to insert an intra-aortic balloon pump. Now that should help with his cardiac output.
Nick: That'll get his blood flowing again?
Dr. Swift: Exactly. This is an extra-long procedure, so you need to go home and get some rest.
Ashley: Thank you.
Adam: The doctor's right. You do need to get some rest.
Abby: Where's Dad? He wasn't in his room.
Ashley: Honey, he's-- he's in surgery.
Victoria: There have been some complications, but the doctors are with him.
J.T.: Any news on Colleen?
Abby: Uh, Jack flew in a couple of specialists, but I haven't gone to see her yet.
Victoria: Do you want to wait in my dad's room?
Nick: I'm gonna check my messages.
Abby: How are you doing?
Ashley: (Sniffles) Oh, Honey, I'm--I'm okay. I'm fine.
Adam: No, she's not. You need to tell your mother that she needs to go home and get rest.
Ashley: Adam, I am staying here until Victor's out of surgery. End of story.
Cane: Sweetheart, I don't want to stop you, but going to see Colleen right now is just too dangerous.
Lily: You can't stop me.
Cane: Listen, I'm doing this for your own good.
Lily: Okay, now you sound like dad.
Cane: Are you saying I'm being protective?
Lily: No, you're being overprotective.
Cane: Sweetheart, look at you, okay? You should not be behind the wheel of a car right now.
Lily: Fine. You know, I will call a cab. Cane, if anything happens to her and I'm not there for my best friend, I would never forgive myself.
Cane: All right, I'll drive you, all right? But I want you to wear a surgical mask to protect yourself, okay?
Cane: All right? We're not gonna stay that long.
Lily: All right, I won't.
Cane: Okay. I'll get our coats.
Lily: Cane? Thank you.
Billy: It's only been 48 hours since the accident. People wake up from comas all the time.
Jack: If there's still brain activity.
Traci: Who's to say that that won't happen?
Jack: Three doctors concur, Traci. You can put her in long-term care facilities. Her condition is not going to improve. She's not comatose. She's in a vegetative state.
Jack: Colleen is gone.
Steve: (Sighs) You don't have to make this decision today.
Jack: We had to face something like this with Dad, you know?
Traci: It wasn't the same thing. Daddy had a "Do not resuscitate" order.
Jack: And I had to convince Gloria to go along with it. Do you have any idea how painful that was for me?
Traci: At least-- at least you knew what Daddy wanted. (Voice breaking) I don't know what Colleen wants. (Sobs) We've never had a conversation about this.
Steve: (Sighs) Honey, you're gonna do what's right.
Traci: (Sniffles) And what if I don't know what that is?
Billy: You will.
Traci: (Sobs) No. Oh, miracles happen every day!
Jack: Three doctors don't make the same mistake, Honey.
Traci: (Sobs) (Sniffles) How can you want me to unplug my only daughter? (Voice breaking) Jack, you can't ask me to do that.
Nick: I just got off the phone with P.R. they're getting inundated with calls from people wondering about Dad's condition.
Victoria: We're gonna have to issue a press release soon.
J.T.: Well, hopefully, you'll only have good things to say.
Nick: I also got a message from Sharon. She heard about the shooting. She wants to know what's going on. I don't think that's something she should hear about over the phone.
Victoria: You're not thinking of going now, are you?
Nick: Vick, you heard Dr. Swift. The surgery's gonna take a while. And I hate to think of Sharon alone in that hospital thinking the worst. She's been doing better, but...
Victoria: You don't want her to suffer a setback.
Nick: You know how much she cares about Dad.
J.T.: I hope she takes the news okay.
Nick: So do I.
Jack: Traci, I'm only asking you to face reality.
Traci: This is my daughter lying here. She's alive-- that's real.
Jack: This is your daughter's body being kept alive by these machines.
Traci: (Sobbing) How can you be so cruel?
Jack: Sweetheart, she's-- I've gotten so close to Colleen in the last two years, I know what a special woman she is. I do.
Jack: The person in this bed is not Colleen.
Abby: They're operating on Dad again. What's going on?
Billy: CeeCee's not gonna make it.
Steve: The doctors are saying that she'll never recover.
Abby: (Sobs) What about those experts you flew in?
Jack: They all agree with Dr. Snyder's diagnosis, Sweetheart.
Abby: (Sobs) What if they're wrong? (Sobs) What about those stories you found on the internet about people that wake up from comas?
Jack: There's no brain activity. There never will be.
Traci: Sweetie, I just have to decide whether to take Colleen off life support.
Abby: (Sobs) No, you can't!
Traci: Oh, Honey. (Sniffles) Can you guys give us just a minute?
Abby: (Sobbing) (Sobs) (Sobbing) it's not fair!
Traci: Oh, Honey, I know.
Traci: I know it's not fair. It's not fair at all.
Abby: (Sobbing) They're talking about taking you off life support. (Sobs) You can't let them. (Sobbing) Please, Colleen, wake up! Please!
Traci: Okay. Oh, it'll be okay.
Traci: She can't--shh. She can't hear you, Sweetie.
Traci: I know. (Sniffles) Oh.
Lily: Billy, hey.
Billy: What are you doing here? I thought--isn't it dangerous for you to be here like this?
Cane: I couldn't talk her out of it.
Lily: I have to see Colleen. How is she doing?
Billy: I'm sorry, Lily, but her brain stopped functioning.
Lily: Oh, my God.
Billy: She's on life support, and the doctors are recommending that we take her off.
Lily: (Sighs) No, there has to be something that we can do.
Billy: No. They can keep her body alive indefinitely, but she'll never wake up.
Cane: Do you want me to take you home?
Lily: No. (Swallows hard) No. I just want to rest for a minute, and then I want to see her.
Billy: Well, I'll take you there. Come on.
Steve: (Sighs) Its unreal seeing her like this. I mean, she was so full of life. (Sighs) (Chuckles) (Sniffles) Do you know that Carnegie hall was one of the last large buildings in New York that was built completely from masonry? (Sniffles) There's no steel framework.
Jack: No, I didn't know that.
Steve: (Sighs) Traci and I took Colleen there when she was 11 for a recital. She was in awe of the architecture. She just spent the whole time walking around. (Chuckles) She barely even noticed there was a concert going on. (Chuckles) I should have noticed then that she'd develop a love for art history. (Sobs) (Sobs) (Voice breaks) I love her like she's my own, Jack.
Jack: I know that.
Steve: (Sobs) I-I just can't let Traci see me this way, you know?
Jack: Believe me, Traci would understand.
Ashley: How many times do I have to say this to you, Adam?
Adam: Ashley, I am trying to look out for your best interests.
Jack: Will you excuse me?
Ashley: But I don't want you to.
Adam: You need to just learn to--
Jack: Uh, hey, hey. What's going on here?
Adam: Why don't you butt out, Jack?
Ashley: Hey, he-- he's pressuring me into going to the ranch, and I don't want to go.
Adam: Listen, I am just worried about you, Ashley.
Jack: You are always welcome at home. As a matter of fact, if you'd like to go there now, I'll take you.
Adam: That is the last place that she needs to be.
Jack: Listen, Junior--
Ashley: Stop it! Please! I can't take any more fighting!
Nikki: Excuse me. Could you get me a towel? I just got caught in a downpour.
Nikki: Hi, Ashley.
Ashley: Oh, my God. No.
Nikki: Ashley, what's happened?
Ashley: Stay away from me.
Nikki: Please, tell me--
Nikki: Why is she so upset? What--what--what's going on?
Jack: Where did you come from?
Nikki: My God, is it Victor? Is he--
Jack: No, no, no, no, no. He's still in the operating room. Excuse me. Ash? Hey, I'm sorry Adam upset you.
Ashley: Jack, I killed her. I hit her with the car. She's dead.
Jack: Whoa. Wait, you hit who?
Ashley: I hit Nikki, Jack. I killed her. She's dead.
Jack: No, Ash, that's not true. I just ran into her in the hall. She--
Ashley: Jack! I killed her!
Jack: Ash, wait!
Paul: Hey. Did you find the kids yet?
Nikki: Hey. No. Let's try Victor's room.
Victoria: Thanks. (Sighs) Actually, I read this one twice. (Drops magazine) (Sniffles) I just wish we would hear something. (Sighs) At least get an update or something.
J.T.: Look who's here.
Nikki: Where is he? J.T.!
Victoria: Mom. I'm so glad you're here. I wasn't sure if you were gonna make it in time.
Nikki: How is your father?
Victoria: They're operating on him right now. They're-Mom, they're putting an artificial pump in his heart.
Nikki: (Gasps) Oh, dear God.
J.T.: The doctors are, uh, saying Colleen's-- doesn't have any brain activity, so--so they're suggesting that Traci take her off life support.
Paul: Wow. Boy, that's terrible.
J.T.: Yeah. It doesn't seem fair, you know? It's... why Colleen? She--she didn't deserve any of this.
Paul: No, I know.
J.T.: (Sighs heavily)
Paul: Oh, poor Traci.
J.T.: She's having trouble accepting it, you know? I am, too. (Sighs) Anyway, uh, thanks for finding Nikki. I'm sure it wasn't easy for you.
Paul: That seems to be my lesson with all this. Sometimes, you have to, um, put all your personal feelings aside.
J.T.: I know what you mean.
Nikki: He'll make it. He has to.
Nick: So the surgeon said the pump will help his heart do its job.
Sharon: Does Phyllis know?
Nick: No, I haven't... (Sighs) Told her how serious Dad is, because if I do, she'll be on the first flight home. And what's the point of that? I mean, she can't do anything. Summer's doing well in her treatment. They should stay in Switzerland.
Sharon: The point is, that you will need her here with you if Victor doesn't survive.
Nick: You know, the night before all this went down, Vick and I talked to Dad about Patty Williams.
Sharon: Did he admit responsibility for bringing her here?
Nick: Not in so many words, but it's clear he did. His actions almost killed my daughter. And I spend one minute furious with Dad, and then the next, I'm-- I'm really worried that he could die.
Sharon: Nick, you must know that he never intentionally meant to harm anyone.
Nick: Except Jack.
Sharon: Well, I don't believe he meant for Patty to shoot Jack.
Nick: Really? Because I'm not so sure.
Sharon: (Groans, exhales) Ow.
Nick: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What--what is it?
Sharon: (Breathing heavily) Oh, it's Braxton hicks.
Nick: Are you sure that's all it is?
Sharon: Yeah. (Breathing heavily) I've been having them the last two days. The doctor said that everything's normal.
Nick: Yeah, I remember you having those with Noah.
Sharon: (Exhales deeply) Yeah, I did. Nick, why did you come here?
Nick: To tell you about Dad. You sounded very worried on your message.
Sharon: Yeah, but you could have called.
Nick: Well, I guess I, uh, also wanted to get out of that hospital.
Sharon: You can't keep doing this. I can't be the one that you rely on. You need to call Phyllis and tell her to come home.
Billy: Hey, uh, Lily's here to see Colleen.
Lily: Hi. Is that okay?
Traci: Of course. Come in.
Cane: All right, um, I'm gonna wait outside, okay?
Lily: All right. I'm sorry, I can't hug anyone.
Traci: We understand. I'm surprised to see you're even here.
Abby: Uh, I'll go check on my dad.
Lily: (Sighs) I just couldn't stay away. I love her so much.
Nick: I explained to you why I haven't called Phyllis.
Sharon: If you don't tell her what's going on, then you're going to keep turning to me, and that's not fair to either of us.
Nick: Sharon, we will always be connected. That baby you're carrying is mine.
Sharon: Which Phyllis doesn't know about, either.
Nick: You know why I haven't told her that. I explained that.
Sharon: Well, you have a lot of reasons for not telling things to your wife, but how do you think she is gonna feel when she comes back here and finds out you've been keeping all of this a secret?
Nick: Wait, I-I don't-- I don't get this. I mean, why--why the grief? You're the one who said don't tell her in the first place.
Sharon: And let me raise the baby on my own.
Nick: You know I would never let that happen.
Sharon: Well, then Phyllis needs to know.
Nick: Sharon, I've had time to think about this.
Sharon: We've already talked about it. We're not together. You're with Phyllis. There's nothing left to say.
Ashley: (Breathing heavily) I killed her, Jack.
Jack: That is not true.
Ashley: I hit her. I hit her with the car in the rain.
Jack: Listen to me. Nikki is fine. I spoke to her at the hospital just a little while ago.
Ashley: No, I thought it was Sabrina, but it was Nikki, Jack. It was Nikki. I saw the blood on the car. It was her. I know it was.
Jack: Please, listen--
Ashley: Jack, I murdered her.
Jack: You didn't hurt anyone. This is alló
Jack: This is all in your head.
Ashley: It's not in my head! I know what I did!
Jack: Hold on.
Ashley: I killed her.
Jack: How did you get here?
Adam: Victor's driver. Where's Ashley?
Ashley: I killed Nikki. Because of me, Victor's gonna die.
Adam: What happened to her?
Jack: She saw Nikki at the hospital. She thought she saw a ghost. She freaked out.
Adam: Are you sure she saw Nikki?
Jack: I talked to Nikki myself. Ashley, listen to me. Ashley.
Jack: Patty shot Victor. You had nothing to do with it.
Ashley: (Sobbing) This is my fault, Jack. It's all because of me.
Adam: Ashley, why don't-- why don't you come home? You--you can-- I'll call Dr. Taylor, and he can meet you at the ranch.
Jack: She does not need an ob-gyn. Look at her.
Adam: Ashley, hey. Why don't you come home with me? Don't you want to come home and be there when Victor gets out of the hospital?
Jack: Adam, she needs psychiatric care.
Adam: Listen, if you have her committed, she will hate you for it.
Jack: This isn't the first time. We have some history here, okay? Ashley? Ashley, let me take you to the hospital, okay?
Ashley: (Breathing shakily) A mental hospital?
Jack: A place that's safe, a place that can help you.
Ashley: Jackie, I'm so tired. I just don't want to fight anymore. Will you take me there?
Jack: A-all right, all right. I'll call Dr. Jameson, the--the psychiatrist that talked to you out at the ranch. I'll call her right now.
Ashley: Okay. Tell her I killed Nikki.
Nikki: Honey, I'm so sorry that I left without any explanation.
Victoria: Why didn't you call us?
Nikki: I sent a packet of letters to the ranch for everybody.
Victoria: Well, we never got them.
Nikki: I know. Paul told me. I can't imagine what happened to them.
Victoria: Mom, why did you break it off with Paul the night before the wedding?
Nikki: I love him. There's no question about that. It's just-- I couldn't give up my entire heart and soul to him. It just--it just wouldn't have been fair.
Victoria: Well, you picked a very interesting messenger to tell us about the marriage being broken off-- Dad, of all people.
Nikki: Well, I went to see him that night.
Victoria: Yeah, so he said.
Nikki: What else did he say?
Victoria: You know Dad. He kept it to himself.
Nikki: You know, I shouldn't even be here. Ashley should be here, not me.
Victor: (Weakly) The night your mother left town, she came by to... tell me that she still loved me.
Victoria: I've always known that.
Victor: I went after her to tell her that I felt the same, but she was gone. I want you to tell her... that I feel the same.
Victoria: You should stay.
Nikki: No, this is wrong. I'm--I'm gonna go.
Victoria: No, Mom, stay. Dad has something to tell you, something really important. I think you're gonna want to hear. Her me,
Traci: That looks like the charm from Colleen's key chain.
Lily: Yeah, it's her good luck charm. Brad gave it to her when you two moved to New York.
Traci: I didn't know that.
Lily: Yeah. And then she said that right after he died, it was a reminder that he was always looking out for her.
Traci: And he still is.
Lily: And then she loaned it to me when I had a bad reaction to the chemo, and... (Sighs) I promised that I would give it back to her, and I just keep thinking, you know, what if she had had it with her when... (Sighs)
Lily: She looks like she's sleeping.
Traci: I know. (Sniffles) That's what makes it so hard to let her go.
Lily: You mean taking her off life support?
Traci: Yeah. I... (Sighs) I have to make that decision, and I-I just want to do what Colleen wants.
Lily: You know, what's weird is that I had this dream right around the time that she was in the lake. And she just kept trying to cheer me up, you know? And she told me to live in the present.
Traci: Oh. That sounds very much like my daughter.
Lily: Yeah. She's so good at accepting whatever life brings her.
Traci: Lily, what do you think Colleen would want me to do?
Lily: I don't think that she would want to be hooked up to all of these machines.
Traci: (Sniffles) (Sighs)
Lily: No, I can't take that.
Traci: Please, Lily. Please take it. Colleen isn't going to need it anymore.
Jack: Come on. Why don't you sit here and relax? I'll fill out all the paperwork.
Adam: I'll stay with Ashley.
Jack: You'd have made things a lot easier if you never came here with her.
Adam: I'm not trying to make things easier. I'm trying to do what Dad would want me to do.
Dr. Yang: Mr. Abbott, I'm Dr. Yang. Dr. Jameson called to let us know that Mrs. Newman was arriving.
Jack: Where is Dr. Jameson?
Dr. Yang: Oh, she'll be by later.
Adam: She shouldn't be here.
Jack: It's one of the best psychiatric hospitals in the state. She'll get excellent care here.
Adam: Victor would not approve of this.
Jack: You don't know what you're talking about, Junior. Even "The black knight" knows she needs psychiatric care. Now back off. Stop undermining my sister. Ash, Honey? You need to sign right here.
Victoria: Hi, Daddy. I didn't give Mom your message. You can do that yourself, though.
Jack: I've looked all around the place. This is gonna be perfect.
Ashley: I should be in jail.
Jack: Listen to me. You are right where you need to be right now. I'm gonna come and visit you every day.
Dr. Yang: Let me show you to your room.
Ashley: (Sighs) Will you come with me?
Jack: Uh, yeah. Yeah, of course. Come on, this way.
Jack: Thank you.
Adam: Look, Taylor, get down here now, or we are both in trouble.
Nick: Okay, tell Vick I'm on my way. All right. I gotta go. Dad's out of surgery.
Sharon: Oh, my gosh, how'd it go?
Nick: J.T. didnít say. I-I want to finish up our talk about Phyllis and the baby later.
Sharon: Well, there's nothing left to say.
Nick: Sharon, I'm not done with this, so we'll do it another time, okay? I gotta go.
Nick: Are you sure you're okay?
Sharon: (Breathing heavily) Yes, it's-- it's just more contractions. It's perfectly normal. It's-- it's just the doctor said that this is fine. Go. Victor needs you.
Nick: Okay. Just take it easy, all right? Take care of yourself.
Nick: I'll call you when I know more.
Sharon: Okay. (Exhales slowly) (Groans) Oh. (Exhales deeply) Easy, girl. You've got time. Easy, Sweetheart.
Traci: I never thought that I would have to make a decision like this about my own daughter. But I have come to understand and accept that there's no possibility that Colleen will recover. (Sniffles) (Sighs) So I could... (Sniffles) Keep her on life support indefinitely and watch her body waste away, or I could turn off the machines that keep her breathing. (Sobs) Colleen was bright and sparkling and full of life, and that's how I want to remember her. I think that's how she would want all of us to remember her.
Traci: (Sniffles) Uh, as hard a decision as this is... (Sniffles) Taking Colleen off life support is the right decision. (Sobs) (Voice breaking) She's already gone. (Sobs) She's with Brad now... watching over us all.
Nikki: I came as soon as I heard what happened. Maybe I shouldn't have.
Victor: (Weakly) Nikki...
Nikki: Don't-- don't exert yourself.
Victor: You're here?
Dr. Swift: Hey. You're awake. That's good. Your father's a very strong man.
Victoria: Then he's gonna be all right?
Dr. Swift: Temporarily.
Nikki: What does that mean? Um, I'm--I'm Nikki Newman. I'm Victor's good friend.
Dr. Swift: We've inserted a pump into his heart to do the job that the left ventricle normally would. Now unfortunately, that is not a permanent solution.
Victoria: Well, then what is?
Dr. Swift: Heart transplant. At this point, it's our only recourse.
Nikki: When does he have to have this transplant by?
Dr. Swift: He needs a new heart within the next few days.
Dr. Swift: A week at the most.
