    • Rebecca: Don't close up, stay with it, whatever you're feeling right now.
      Erica (in a rising, angry voice): Maybe I don't wanna feel whatever it is that I'M FEELING, OKAY!?
      Dr. Tom: Uh, you know, Erica, that may be true, but you know that ignoring it is not gonna make it go away.
      Erica: I feel angry … with you.
      Dr. Tom: Why?
      Erica: Because you-you did this. You came into my life and you made me trust you - and then I find out that I'm not the only one? (sobbing) I don't wanna do this and I don't wanna say this. (sobbing and sniffling) I told you that … that … I told you that I was ready - and that I wouldn't let fear hold me back anymore … and now all I can feel … is this horrible fear. Like … like … that I can't run a company, and that I can't be alone, and that … I can't … I can't do this without you … And I'm sorry, but … I'm not ready to be here.
      Dr. Tom: Erica.
      Erica: I'm not.
      Dr. Tom: Erica, don't you see? You are ready. You just proved that.
      Erica: How? By … by bawling and-and saying how stupid I feel?
      Dr. Tom: No, by facing it … by admitting it, you know, out loud, to us - to yourself.
