A Walk To Remember (2002) Movie Script

- Is he here yet?
- No.
- You scared him.
- I gotta take a massive piss.
Dude, any excuse for you
to pull that thing out.
Anyone got any beer?
We finished them all back at school.
Besides, you've had enough.
I've got one. It's not cold,
but it's yours if you want it.
All you gotta do is sit up, beg,
roll over and shake that booty.
- Thanks a lot, Eric.
- Anytime, anywhere.
- This is gonna be sweet.
- I'm glad I thought of it.
You're animals.
Just because he's new.
You've talked shit the whole time.
Why don't you be quiet?
You know how it is.
Nobody's forcing him to show up.
What if he doesn't?
I want to go back to the dance.
Belinda, why don't you go back
to the dance by yourself?
I wasn't talking to you, Dean.
You know I don't dance.
It's true. I've seen him bust a move.
It ain't pretty.
But a brother like me is ready
to get his freak on. What you say?
Put it away before you hurt somebody.
Like yourself.
He's here!
All right, here he comes.
Hey, check out the Safari Joe truck.
I can't wait to see you fly!
Hey, nice shirt, Opie.
You're late.
I thought I said be here at 10,
but you know...
When I say be here at 10, be here.
Can you remember that next time?
If there is a next time!
Dean! Is he always like that?
Always, man. So how about it?
You ready to fly?
Wait up, baby!
Let me get on your back.
Giddyap! Giddyap!
Okay, here's the deal.
You're gonna jump
from up there into here.
That's it, and you're one of us. Okay?
- You ready?
- Yeah.
All right. All right.
Let's do this, okay?
It's cake, man.
Hell, I'm jumping with you.
- How deep is this?
- I don't really know.
Let's go find out.
Let's do it.
Yeah! Shit, yeah!
Come on, let's go!
- You done this?
- We've all done it.
- I hope you had your Wheaties!
- You guys gonna do this tonight?
On three.
Oh, shit.
Landon, he's hurt!
- Is he okay?
- Landon, get down here!
- What the hell?
- Dean, what the hell?
- You guys, he's hurt!
- Come on, man!
- I told you it was a bad idea!
- Get him out of the water!
- Hurry up!
- Is he dead? What are we gonna do?
Help me!
- Get him over here!
- There's a pipe. He must have hit it!
Get him out of the water!
Watch his head! Watch his head!
Hey, who's down there?
Tracie, come on!
Central, we've got trespassers.
Send a squad car.
Come on, Landon.
Come on!
You guys, just take him!
Give me his arms!
I got him.
We gotta get out of here.
- Go! Get out of here!
- Landon, come on!
I told you not to do this!
Calm down.
Belinda, let's go!
Come on, get in! I'm driving.
Damn it!
Put your hands on the wheel.
You know, Mama,
my leg really hurts today.
I don't think I can go anyplace.
- Maybe I should call your father.
- No.
I'm not talking to him.
This has gotta stop between you two.
You can't do that. You need a father.
Let us be thankful today
that a life was saved by our Lord.
And let us pray for the lives
of the others involved...
...who are clearly not
on the path of righteousness.
- So how's the leg, man?
- It's good.
I can't believe you were in jail.
- What'd you tell them?
- It was a nice night for a drive.
Ended up at the cement factory,
found Gephardt.
Tried to help him, got spooked.
Figured I'd leave before
they thought I was involved.
Gotta hand it to you.
You're a Jedi Master of bullshit.
Damn, that Jamie Sullivan
sure has style.
Wore that dress in the fourth grade.
It's the quiet ones you gotta watch.
She might put it on a brother
like a Pop-Tart.
A little maintenance,
she might not look bad.
Nice sweater.
Thank you.
Thank you.
A student claims you were drinking
on school property.
Lucky for you,
Clay Gephardt isn't talking.
The factory owners aren't pressing
charges. At least not today.
I said I'd arrange
appropriate punishment.
What, are you gonna expel me?
Not yet.
Besides attending class, you will help
our janitorial staff after school.
- For pay?
- For the inner satisfaction it brings.
Saturdays, you'll tutor students
at our sister school.
You'll take part
in the drama club's final event.
The spring play?
It's time you experienced
other things.
Started spending time
with other kinds of people.
Don't blow it, Landon.
This is a device made of plastic wrap,
a coat hanger and Wite-Out.
- Does anyone know what it is?
- It's a star frame.
This is a star frame.
It will help you locate stars
with your naked eye.
Mercury and Jupiter can be seen just
over the west horizon after sunset.
Bet you can see angels up there,
flying around.
There are things that
could be called miraculous.
The more Einstein studied the universe,
the more he believed in a higher power.
Well, if there is a higher power...
...why can't he get you a new sweater?
He's too busy looking for your brain.
Laugh, it's a joke.
- Let's get out of here.
- I gotta stay.
Principal's gone.
Let's make some moves.
Come on. Come on.
I don't know.
The custodian thing kind of suits you.
Thanks, buddy. Thank you.
Look at the chart,
you'll see Halley's comet.
Okay, so I'll see you at school.
My parents aren't home,
if you want to come inside.
Come on, Belinda. Nothing's changed.
I know. I just thought...
It's over.
Yeah. Whatever.
Good morning, Landon.
Landon, wake up!
Come on. Up, up, up, up!
It's Saturday, no school.
Let's try this again.
Which of these are similar triangles?
This one or that one?
What do you think?
Man, I think this is bullshit!
Makes two of us.
Do you wanna buy some raffle tickets?
I'm trying to raise money
to buy Jefferson new computers.
So I saw you in there with Luis.
And I know it can be difficult...
...but maybe you should back
into it from somewhere else.
Are you gonna go visit Clay Gephardt?
That would be a no.
They moved him from the hospital
to a rehab place.
Is this your idea of small talk?
If so, your social skills need work.
No one made him jump.
- It's called peer pressure.
- How do you know?
You read it in your precious book?
Please don't pretend
like you know me, okay?
But I do. I do.
We have all the same classes
since kindergarten.
Why, you're Jamie Sullivan.
You sit at lunch table seven.
It's not the reject table, but it's
definitely self-exile territory.
You have exactly one sweater.
You look at your feet when you walk.
And for fun, you tutor on weekends...
...and hang out
with the Stars and Planets kids.
How's that sound?
Fairly predictable.
Nothing I haven't heard before.
- You don't care what people think?
- No.
I don't know what your problem is.
Miss Garber has nice hooters.
This is bullshit. Thanks.
I can't wait to see you in stage
makeup. That's gonna be cool.
- Be back in an hour.
- Tell them to do West Side Story.
Get that nice big-booty girl
from Selena. Maria! Maria!
This year's spring musical is about
fiery passion and blazing Tommy guns.
Written by our own Eddie Zimmerhoff.
Words and music by Jamie Sullivan.
It tells the story of Tommy "The Gun"
Thornton in Prohibition-era New York.
Eddie, perhaps...
Mr. Carter, better late than never.
Please join us.
Now then, let's see...
Jamie will be our Alicia,
a mysterious club singer.
- Sally will be playing Caroline.
- Congratulations.
And Landon will read Tommy Thornton.
No. No. See, I didn't plan
on acting or anything.
When did you know, Tommy?
IKnow what?
That we were in love.
Baby, you don't want to fall
in love with a guy like me.
It's too late. I'm crazy about you.
I'm breathing it, drinking it all in.
Aren't you?
I don't know what I'm drinking,
dollface, but if this is love...
...pour me another glass.
Are you trying to be bad at this?
No, just comes naturally.
All right, everybody,
let's go to the end.
Don't even pretend you won't be great.
- Okay. I'll see you tomorrow.
- All right. See you.
- So would it kill you to try?
- Yep, and I'm too young to die.
You don't care about classes,
but you like school...
...because you're popular
and you'll never be on top again.
- That's thoroughly predictable.
- Your act only works on an audience.
Feeling Christian?
Seat belt?
- I forfeit.
- Thank you.
What do you mean, forty-two?
Forty-two is befriend somebody
I don't like.
It's a to-do list I have for my life.
Like getting a new personality?
Join the Peace Corps,
make a medical discovery.
Be in two places at once,
get a tattoo.
What's number one?
I'd tell you,
but then I'd have to kill you.
I've come...
...to see if you're ready.
Take a good look. The only thing
I'm ready for is a dirt nap.
Ready to look into your heart,
Tom Thornton.
Your words have been heard,
and not just by me.
When you walked into...
Shit. When you walked into my club,
that wasn't just a coincidence.
Nothing's coincidence, baby.
You know you're the only one
who can make me sing.
Yeah, Miss Garber!
You'll put Eric in all your plays!
Eric, I'll put you in all my plays!
Come on. Do you know I got
three weeks to memorize all this?
You couldn't pull this off
in three months! De Niro couldn't!
I didn't write it, okay?
But you're gonna make a jackass
of yourself in front of everyone.
Look, I don't have a choice,
so would you help me out, please?
I'm just busting on you.
I'll be there opening night,
front row. And you can count on it.
With tomatoes.
Thanks, man.
Landon? Boys, can you help
with these groceries?
- Yeah.
- No problem.
What do you want?
I've known you for years. You've
never been the first to say hello.
I need help with my lines.
- Landon Carter's asking me for help?
- Yeah.
Okay, I'll pray for you.
Jamie, look...
You've obviously never asked anybody
for help before, right?
A request like yours requires
flattery and groveling.
It can't be about you.
It has to be for the common good.
It is for the common good.
Eddie Zimmerhoff deserves the best.
- Please?
- Okay. One condition, though.
What's that?
You have to promise
you won't fall in love with me.
- That's not a problem.
- Okay. I'll see you today after school.
Landon Carter is coming here?
He's dangerous, careless,
the worst kind of bully.
Daddy, what about forgiveness?
I thought we had discussed
that I would decide...
...how I wanted to spend
my time and my life.
It's him I don't trust, not you.
You gonna keep me out here
all afternoon?
Come on in.
My script is in my room. I'll be
right down. Make yourself at home.
Oh, yeah.
It's not likely.
That is one scary-looking...
- Jesus!
- No, Jamie's father.
Hello, Mr. Carter. I understand
you're the lead in the play.
Thanks for letting me
come over and run lines.
I didn't let you.
It's a school night. Let's get
one thing straight, Mr. Carter.
You think that, on Sundays,
I don't see you from where I stand.
But I see you.
I'll be in my office, just here.
Yeah, let's go.
- Landon! Where have you been?
- Nowhere.
- Hey, come here.
- What's up?
- Are we cool?
- Yeah, sure.
What the hell?
- What are you doing here?
- I should ask you the same.
Do you normally walk alone
in a cemetery at night?
Where you going?
Come and see.
Okay. What is that?
This is my telescope.
I built it when I was 12.
Take a look.
Saturn. Very cool.
I'm planning on building a larger one
so I can see the comet Hyakutake.
It comes this spring.
Nobody knows when it'll be back.
Nature's miracles. I get it.
- Get what?
- That you're into all this stuff.
This stuff?
I have my beliefs.
I have faith, but don't you?
No. There's too much bad shit
in this world.
Without suffering,
there's no compassion.
Tell that to those who suffer.
This is what I love about early
spring. Where those legs been hiding?
- She's trashy.
- Well, if it isn't the Virgin Mary.
Here comes your leading lady.
Hey, Carter.
So I'll see you after school?
In your dreams.
Hi. Where's your sweater?
Let's get out of here.
What's up, dude?
Come on, Jamie.
Open the door, please!
What do you want?
- You're not in a good mood.
- You don't miss a thing.
Listen, I was hoping
we could run lines together.
Okay, but just not
so anybody knows, right?
I just figured we could surprise
everyone with how good I get.
We could be secret friends.
Exactly! It's like
you're reading my mind.
Great. Maybe you could read mine?
Jamie, I can't just be your friend.
Landon, I thought I saw something
in you. Something good.
But I was very wrong.
Damn it!
Sorry. Sorry.
You know the answer?
Come on, man, I know you know.
Okay. It's you, me and the basket.
We form the three corners
of a triangle.
Take a step towards the basket.
Am I at the same angle to you
and the basket as before?
- Yeah.
- Are you?
- Yeah.
- So, what did we just make?
- A similar triangle?
- Yes. Okay, make me an isosceles.
You got it, two sides the same.
Okay, enough of this. Let's play.
I came to say I'm sorry.
Well, you did. Feel better?
No. I feel like shit.
You know what? I actually thought
I wanted to be your friend.
And now I have no idea why. No idea.
I made that jump once.
I thought I was a badass.
I remember actually saying
that I meant to belly flop.
Did it hurt?
Like hell.
So I guess I'll see
you at school then.
- Pour me a drink, Joey.
- You promised me, Tommy.
No more of your no-goodnik schemes.
You promised me we'd go to Paris.
I won't sit on my keister
and watch the fat cats get rich.
Trust me. This is a sure thing.
That's it! We are through!
Go ahead and run your booze,
you big dope!
And I hope you drown in it!
So you must be the new girl
he's hired.
The singer?
You want some free advice
about this one? Stay far away.
He's nothing but trouble
in cheap spats.
Look, I ain't blaming you.
I ain't asking for forgiveness,
I just did what I had to.
When you walked out of the rain
and into my club...
...that wasn't just coincidence,
was it?
Nothing's coincidence.
Your face... You look so familiar.
Like this dame I knew once,
only it wasn't real, it was a dream.
Tell me about this dream girl.
Well, I don't remember.
All I know...
...is you're beautiful.
The song, the song.
The dream.
Help me to remember.
Will you sing for me?
There's a song that's inside of my soul.
It's the one that I've tried to write over and over again
I'm awake in the infinite cold.
But you sing to me over and over and over again.
So, I lay my head back down.
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours, I pray, to be only yours
I know now you're my only hope.
Sing to me the song of the stars.
Of your galaxy dancing and laughing and laughing again.
When it feels like my dreams are so far
Sing to me of the plans that you have for me over again.
So I lay my head back down.
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours, I pray, to be only yours
I know now, you're my only hope.
I give you my destiny.
I'm giving you all of me.
I want your symphony, singing in all that I am
At the top of my lungs, I'm giving it back.
So I lay my head back down.
And I lift my hands and pray
To be only yours, I pray, to be only yours
I pray, to be only yours
I know now you're my only hope.
hmmmmm, hmmmmm, oooooh.
That was great.
Hi, kids.
Honey, I couldn't believe it.
What a transformation.
Thanks, but please stop.
- Don't be home too late.
- Okay. Thanks.
Okay, okay.
- Interesting rewrite you did there.
- I did my best.
Your acting didn't suck either.
- Gotta go. Take it easy, man.
- Okay.
- Landon, you were marvelous!
- Thank you.
Landon? Fine performance, son.
- What are you doing here?
- I thought we'd get a bite.
- I'm not hungry.
- Don't walk away.
You taught me how.
Oh, my God.
Look who's here.
Don't look at him.
You don't want to stare too much.
I guess he doesn't want
to sit with us.
- People can see.
- That would ruin your reputation how?
What's that?
I'm reading books on Rothman's list
of contemporary American authors.
- And how many books are there?
- A hundred.
But then there's his British list
and his European list.
So is this on your list,
to read all these books?
Jamie, I'm trying here, okay?
Maybe I miss spending time with you.
- Maybe you inspire me.
- Sounds like bull.
- Which part?
- All of it.
- It's not.
- Prove it.
- You've no idea how to be a friend.
- I don't just want that.
- You don't know what you want.
- You're scared someone wants you.
- Why would that scare me?
- You couldn't hide behind books...
...or your fricking telescope,
or your faith.
No. You know the real reason
why you're scared?
It's because you want
to be with me too.
We gonna get this party jumping!
Can you turn down Soul Train?
Some of us are trying to work.
You really know how
to bust a robot's groove.
It's all good because we'll get Club
Landon and Club Eric jumping now.
What we got here?
Okay, okay, you're not feeling my
hip-hop, but what the hell is this?
Jamie lent it to me.
You're listening
to her people's music.
- Her people?
- Yeah...
...her Bible-hugging,
...honk-if-you-love-Jesus people.
- She's not like that.
- Well...
...you got Belinda thinking
that little lip action...
...between you and Jamie
was kind of real.
What's with you? You don't have time
for your real friends anymore.
I don't know, buddy. I'm just over it.
I'm sick and tired of doing
the same shit all the time.
This girl's changed you,
and you don't even know it, man.
- Let me guess, Belinda say that too?
- No.
I did.
What is it?
I got you something.
Thank you.
Well, I'll see you at school.
- Mr. Carter.
- Later, Reverend.
Boys like that...
...they have...
They have expectations.
The rules around here
aren't going to change.
You might not care
what I say or think...
...but you should care
about God's opinion.
I think he wants me to be happy.
Dad, it's just a sweater.
I'm going to make us
some dinner, okay?
I talked to your dad today.
Said he saw you at the play
for about 10 seconds.
Sending a check once a month doesn't
exactly make him a father.
- Landon, there are a lot of reasons...
- He left us.
You need to forgive him too.
Jamie Sullivan! Oh, me, oh, my,
look at Jamie Sullivan.
She was looking all right
in that play.
She doesn't look hot.
Yeah, I would have to say during
the play, she looked hot.
I have the best idea.
Can you do something, like, move it?
Maybe move it around
a little something here.
Take one.
Let me stop it for a second.
Check it out.
Hey, look at this.
Take one. Look.
- Jamie. Hi.
- Hi.
Listen, I just want you to know,
no hard feelings.
Landon and I are way over.
I really don't know
what you're talking about.
You'd be so beautiful...
...if you knew how to do your makeup.
- Come on, eat lunch with me.
- Okay.
- Want a Tic Tac?
- No, thanks.
Is that you?
Nice bod.
Look, this is about me, okay?
This is not you.
Stay here.
Hey, man, no wonder you been
keeping her locked up.
I had no idea this was
underneath all that.
- Dean, stop!
- You stay out of this!
- We're through. We're through.
- That's great.
- We're through forever!
- You okay?
- You made a mistake, Landon!
- You sure?
Let's get out of here.
Hey! You're a little chickenshit!
Baby, I'm sorry. Okay?
They're animals, all right?
You want me to take you home?
Let's get out of here.
- Are you sure you're okay?
- I'm fine.
- Thank you for everything.
- You're welcome.
- I want to ask you something.
- Okay.
Will you go out with me
on Saturday night?
I'm sorry. I can't go.
- You have something else going on?
- No.
- It's not that.
- Then what is it?
I'm not allowed to date.
"Do not be deceived.
God is not mocked.
Whatever a man sows,
that he will also reap.
For he who sows to his flesh,
will of the flesh reap..."
- Can I help you?
- Yes, sir.
I'd like to ask your daughter
to dinner on Saturday night.
That's not possible.
With all due respect, sir,
I ask you to reconsider.
With all due respect, Mr. Carter,
I made my decision.
You can exit the way you entered.
I'm sorry I haven't treated
Jamie the way I should have.
She deserves more than that.
I'm asking you for the same thing...
...you teach us every day in church.
And that's faith.
I can't believe you asked permission.
It's no big deal.
He was cool about it, anyway.
- Thank you.
- This is for you.
- Thank you very much.
- Would you like something to drink?
- Sweet tea, please.
- Make that two.
Right away.
This place is really nice.
Is this okay?
- Don't even worry about it, okay?
- Okay.
Choose whatever you want.
So, what'll it be?
Is everything okay?
- Thank you very much.
- Yeah, me too. Thanks.
Would you like to dance?
Sorry, I don't dance.
Me neither. I mean, not usually
in front of anybody.
Well, no. I mean, I don't at all.
As in, I can't.
Everybody can dance.
Come on, you can't be that bad.
For me?
Come on.
Sorry, I told you I was bad at this.
- In all fairness, you warned me, right?
- That's right.
So, what's number one on your list?
Number one on my list
is getting out of Beaufort.
Getting out won't be your problem.
It's more like figuring out what to do
when you get somewhere.
What do you mean?
I mean, you can do anything.
- Where are we going?
- Just hold on, you'll see.
Come on, come on. Let's go!
- What are we doing?
- Run!
- Okay, okay. Stand there.
- All right.
- One foot there, and one foot here.
- Okay.
You're acting crazy. What's going on?
Right now, you're straddling
the state line.
You're in two places at once.
Okay, butterfly, rosebud or star?
You choose.
- Butterfly.
- Okay.
Where do you want it?
Right here.
How can you see places like this...
...and have moments like this,
and not believe?
You're lucky to be so sure.
It's like the wind.
I can't see it, but I feel it.
What do you feel?
I feel wonder and beauty...
...joy, love.
I mean, it's the center of everything.
I might kiss you.
I might be bad at it.
That's not possible.
I love you.
Now would be the time
to say something.
I told you not to fall in love with me.
Jamie. Say good night to Mr. Carter.
Landon, go home. The night's over.
- Good night.
- Good night.
Good night, sir.
Jamie, your behavior's sinful.
- You act with that boy like you're...
- In love?
- Jamie, you are a child.
- Dad, look at me...
...l'm not a child.
- Then stop acting childish.
I love him.
Then be fair to him, Jamie,
before things get worse.
- Hey.
- Hey.
- Will you help me?
- Yeah.
So, what did you tell your father?
The truth. I just left you out of it.
So, what do you want to see?
Pluto only rises a few minutes
before the sun.
...and I have brought us
a thermos of hot coffee...
...and a blanket.
- You planned this.
- Oh, I hoped for it.
Are you trying to seduce me?
Why? Are you seducible?
That's what I thought...
...ergo, a second blanket.
- One for me, and one for you.
- Thank you.
- Can you find this star right here?
- Sure.
So why am I looking for this star?
Because I had it named for you.
It's official.
It's from the International
Star Registry.
This is wonderful!
I love you.
Okay, okay. I'm sorry. I'm stopping.
So, what's your number one?
To marry in the church
where my mother grew up.
That's where my parents were married.
- Did you just get in?
- Yeah.
Thank heavens I didn't know.
I'd have been panicked.
Landon, were you with Jamie?
Landon, be careful.
She's the reverend's daughter.
- Mom...
- Please!
It's different with her.
- It's different with her.
- Yes.
It better be different with her.
I was doing laundry the other day,
and I found this.
"Examine a moon rock.
Go to college.
Get into medical school."
Honey, these are really
beautiful ambitions.
- But you'll have to work really hard.
- I can do that.
Yeah, you can.
...Jamie has faith in me.
You know?
She makes me want to be different.
I was so drunk,
I don't remember anything.
That's great.
Citizen high to citizen low.
Are you worried
about your college applications?
I'm not applying.
- I thought you said...
- No, you assumed.
- Take a year off, try the Peace Corps?
- No.
What are you gonna do?
I'm sick.
- I'll take you home, you'll be...
- No, Landon!
I'm sick.
I have leukemia.
- You're 18, you're perfect.
- No.
I found out two years ago.
I've stopped responding to treatments.
So why didn't you tell me?
The doctor said I should live life
normally, as best I could.
I didn't want anybody
to be weird around me.
- Including me?
- Especially you!
I was getting along fine.
I accepted it, and then you happened!
I do not need a reason
to be angry with God.
Dad, open the door!
- I need your help.
- What's wrong? You okay?
It's my girlfriend, Jamie. She's...
She's got cancer. And I need you
to come and see her right now.
Okay, calm down.
- Can you help me or not?
- I don't know her case.
I don't know her history.
I'm a cardiologist. I can't...
You know, just forget it. I knew it.
Would you wait? Landon, wait!
Your mom called me.
Talk to me, man.
About what?
About you...
...about Jamie.
What's there to talk about?
She's the best person I've ever known.
I didn't understand.
It's okay, man.
It's okay.
It's so nice to see you again.
You're welcome. Watch yourself now.
I'm not going anywhere.
Please tell Jamie that.
I'm so sorry.
I really should have told you sooner.
I made you do too many things...
If anything,
you kept me healthy longer.
Are you scared?
To death.
Lighten up.
It's not funny.
I'm scared of not being with you.
Oh, baby, that will never happen.
I'll be here.
Can you do me a favor?
So I talked to Eric.
Need some help with this stuff?
What's that boy doing in the yard?
What's the matter? Jamie, honey?
Landon. Run along, son.
I'm not tired.
I need just a minute with her.
- I'll be back, okay?
- Okay.
...so serious.
Do you remember
when you were about 5 or 6...
...and you said you hated gravity...
...and you wanted
to jump off the roof and fly?
I was so angry at you
for making me come down.
Honey, if I kept you too close, it's
because I wanted to keep you longer.
You know, when I lost your mother...
...I was afraid that my heart
would never open again.
Jamie, I couldn't look
at you for days.
But then...
I love you so much.
I wanted to give you these.
The pictures from the play.
- I'm sorry about the flyers.
- It doesn't matter.
I guess you're with who you should be.
It's like she chose you.
Yeah, I don't even know why.
I do.
How you feeling?
- I'm okay. How are you?
- Pretty good.
- I have something for you.
- You do?
Don't worry, it's not a Bible.
It was my mother's. It's got quotes
from her favorite books...
...and quotes by famous people.
Her thoughts.
- Come on.
- Okay, let's check it out.
"What is a friend?
It's a single soul dwelling
in two bodies. Aristotle."
- Right here.
- Okay.
"Find out who you are...
...and do it on purpose."
That's Dolly Parton.
I always thought she was smart.
"Love is always patient and kind.
It is never jealous.
Love is never boastful or conceited.
It is never rude or selfish.
It does not take offense
and is not resentful."
- You know what I figured out today?
- What?
Maybe God...
...has a bigger plan for me
than I had for myself.
Like, this journey never ends.
Like, you were sent to me
because I'm sick.
To help me through all this.
You're my angel.
What's going on?
I get to go home.
Please thank your father for me.
- What does she mean?
- He's been trying to reach you.
He's going to pay
for private home care.
Thank you.
It's all right, son.
- I gotta finish this tonight.
- Here, something hot.
Almost finished.
Did you order the mirrors?
- Yeah, they're in here.
- Good.
- What about side bearings?
- An old phonographic turntable.
So you think you can get
all this done by tomorrow?
- Thank you.
- You're welcome.
It's beautiful.
Okay, it's time. Go check it out.
There it is.
Come here. Come look.
Come here. Come look, quick.
That is cool.
Do you love me?
- Will you do something for me then?
- Anything.
Will you marry me?
"Love is always patient and kind.
It is never jealous."
- I love you.
- "Love is never boastful nor conceited.
It is never rude or selfish.
It does not take offense
and is not resentful.
Love takes no pleasure
in other people's sins...
...but delights in the truth.
It is always ready to excuse,
to trust, to hope...
...and to endure...
...whatever comes."
- L, Landon Rollins Carter...
- L, Jamie Elizabeth Sullivan...
...do solemnly swear...
...to take Jamie Sullivan...
...to take Landon Rollins Carter...
...as my wife.
...as my husband.
To honor and to cherish her,
all the days of my life.
Jamie and I had a perfect
summer together...
...with more love than lots of people
know in a lifetime.
And then she went,
with her unfailing faith.
It's been four years...
...but the vision of Jamie
walking towards me...
...will stay with me forever.
Hello, Mr. Carter. Come in.
- Have a seat, please.
- Thank you.
- You look good.
- Thank you. You too.
I'm getting by.
- What's new, Landon?
- Well, I got into medical school.
Your mother told me that.
We're so proud of you. Jamie would
have been proud of you too.
I want you to have this.
Oh, Landon.
Oh, my.
Thank you.
I'm sorry she never got her miracle.
She did.
It was you.
Jamie saved my life.
She taught me everything.
About life, hope...
...and the long journey ahead.
I'll always miss her.
But our love is like the wind.
I can't see it...
...but I can feel it.
