    • (Melinda looks sadly at the baby in the incubator.) Angel: Adoption, uh? Tricky business... Although, from what i've learned over the years, you can always count on the courts to have adoption records on file. Getting to see them is another matter. Melinda: What are you doing here? Angel: Waiting. It won't be long now. Melinda: Is this one yours? Angel: She will be soon. Melinda: I don't understand. Angel: I have a calling, just like you. I'm a guardian for little children who don't have anyone to meet them on the other side. I take care of them. Melinda: So she isn't gonna make it? Angel: It's ok. She's not meant to make it. We have a better place for her. She's suffered long enough. (The Angel reaches for the premuture baby and puts the baby in his arms and smiles at Melinda. Melinda looks at the incubator at the lifeless body while the Angel disappears.)

    • Diane: You telling me, that from beyond the grave my son wants to know who gave him up?

    • Diane: (she's speaking to Jason) You were my greatest gift, you made my life shine.

    • Jason: I was psyched she had a tattoo, I mean how cool is that?

    • Diane: I'm not going to try to protect him anymore. Melinda: Protect him from what? Diane: From his birth mother, she's not the little angel he thinks she is.
