    • Dr. Tom: Erica.
      Erica: (coming to say goodbye to Dr. Tom) Hi. I'm, um, not interrupting?
      Dr. Tom: No, no, no, not at all. In fact, I wanted to... I wanted to talk to you about something. It's good news.
      Erica: Dr. Tom, me first, okay? I said that I wanted you to do what's right for you, but... but the truth is... is that I never wanted this to end.
      Dr. Tom: Well, that's what I wanted to tell you. It doesn't have to end, Erica. Not yet. I've talked to Dr. Naadiah and I can put this off.
      Erica: No, dr. Tom, you can't.
      Dr. Tom: No, I can. I can wait, Erica, until you're ready.
      Erica: Well then... you'll wait forever. Because honestly, I will never be ready for you to go. (almost crying) I know that this is right, and I know that I'm gonna miss you so, so much, but ... I also know that I'm... I'm gonna be okay.
      Dr. Tom: (nodding) Huh. And you're ...?
      Erica: Yes, I'm sure.
      Dr. Tom: (picks up her list of regrets) Erica Strange. (listing her regrets)

    • Erica: (talking to dr. Naadiah after being in a hallway of memories with Leo from where he doesn't want to go) Leo, he's trapped, and I have to go back there and I have to help him!
      Dr. Naadiah: He'll leave when he's ready, Erica. He's... he's not trapped, not in any physical sense. Leo is free to leave that hallway whenever he wants.
      Erica: No, but, Dr. Naadiah, that's just the thing! He doesn't want his life to be over, I mean, he's doing everything that he can to hold on!
      Dr. Naadiah: You're misunderstanding. He's not resisting the end, he's resisting the beginning.
      Erica: Of what?
      Dr. Naadiah: Of whatever comes next, whatever's on the other side of that door.
      Erica: And what's on the other side?
      Dr. Naadiah: I don't know. No one does. Until you walk through it. And Leo will, Erica, he will when he's ready.
