    • Ryan Lavery: (To Annie) After the surgery, when Spike came out of the general anesthesia, he, um... he made this sound. It wasn't a cry or... or a whimper. It was more like, um... it came from a place that... that no child should ever know. And, um, I couldn't do anything. I couldn't make it go away, I couldn't make him feel better, I couldn't tell him that all of this is to help. So... the doctors came in and they put him out again, and they said that he's better this way. It's better for him. (To Spike) I'm so -- I'm sorry. Spike, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. (back to Annie) Annie, if he doesn't make it...
      Annie Lavery: Stop it. Look at me. This is not your fault. You did what you did because it's who you are. OK? You believed in the... in the goodness and the decency of a woman you used to love. You tried to help her, Ryan. You opened your heart to do that. You tried to find peace for all of us, and for Greenlee, and for your family. To me, that makes you a hero.
