Mary Alice: (closing voiceover) Eli Scruggs sat in his truck for almost an hour, devastated that he had done nothing to save me. He then made a quiet vow to God. From that moment forward, he would do what he could to help people. To help them fix their lives. And for the rest of his life, that's exactly what he did. (To Eli's funeral, Bree fixes his wreath, that was missing a rose) And somewhere in a place reserved for the very best of us, Eli Scruggs smiled and said 'thank you'.
