[Archie sits on the bed holding Edith's slipper]

  • Archie: It wasn't supposed to be like this you know. I was supposed to be the first one to go. I know I always used to kid ya. About you going first. You know I never meant none of that. And that morning when you was laying there I was shakin' ya and yelling at ya to go down and fix my breakfast. I didn't know. You had no right to leave me that way without giving me just one more chance to say I love you!

[He starts crying and Stephanie enters the room slowly. Archie looks at her]
