Mary: (when Laura hugs her and starts crying) Hey, now. What's this all about?
Laura: I was so sure you were going to see again. I was just so sure.
Mary: I know. I was, too. It's a good lesson--never count on anything until you're sure.
Laura: But I wanted you to see again so bad. I wanted you to be able to do all the things you planned to!
Mary: All right, now! That's enough. Are you feeling sorry for me or for you? Listen, I'm the one who's blind here, all right? And you better get used to it, because that's the way it's gonna be. Laura, before I went blind, I wanted to teach. And well, I'm a teacher. I had a wonderful family. I still do, plus a wonderful husband, and a sister that I love very, very much.
