    • Erica: We hardly ever talk about Leo, but when we do, it's always that. You know, our collective failure, how … we couldn't reach him in time. Honestly, I can't believe it's taken me this long to realize how dysfunctional it is. You know, we never talk about his life - (tearful) about how great he was.
      Dr. Tom: This year you tried to change that.
      Erica: You know, I wanted to do … something that would help us let go of it, just something positive. But it didn't work and, frankly, you know, I'm not surprised.
      Dr. Tom: Why's that?
      Erica: Because it's not easy to let go of something you've carried for years. I tried to go to Stratford with Ethan and I couldn't even make it to the car.
      Dr. Tom: Erica, you and I, we have arrived at a … juncture of sorts here … You see, I know that this is the one regret that you've been waiting for, and that your regret is simply that you did not wake up in time - and that you were unable to go into that barn and pull your brother out. Unfortunately, that is not what this is about. There are … limits to this therapy and … right now, we're facing one of them. Because, no matter how deeply you regret it, you are not allowed to go back and … play God. You are not permitted … to bring back the dead.
