Packed to the Rafters (2008) s03e21 Episode Script

Rest in Peace

(YAPS) (HOWLS) JULIE: (NARRATES) When Ben was a little boy, he had so much energy.
The only way to make sure he'd sleep was to wear him out.
Ruby's finally gone to sleep.
She'd be the only one.
His light's still on.
He hasn't slept in days.
We'd go to the park, play on the swings, kick around a football.
When he was a little boy, I knew what to do.
But he's not a little boy anymore.
And Ben knows that when he does close his eyes, eventually he'll have to wake up and restart his life without Mel.
SONG: I wake up A little before noon I pick up the paper MEL: (SHOUTS) Ben! Come on! Are you gonna be in there all day? I'll be back In no time, babe So you can just Stay in bed And rest your head Your heavy head It's cold out Man, it's been pouring Hard rain been falling I need grease.
I need salt.
Hey, next time I say we do tequila shots, can you save me from myself? OK, Ben? NATHAN: Ben.
Ben? Hey.
Are you hungry? Do you want me to cook you something? No, I'm not hungry.
JULIE: And with Ben as far from sleep as it's possible to be, the rest of us were sleepless too - with worry.
Ben? Hey.
I thought it might have been Ben.
It was, for a minute, but he's gone back to bed.
Well, he's gone back to his room.
Do you want a cup? No, you're right, mate.
Well, what are we gonna do? I'm not sure there's anything we can do.
He just wants to be by himself.
Yeah, but there's got to be something.
I don't know what to say.
(SIGHS) Well, maybe there's nothing you can say.
Not yet.
But there are other ways of letting him know you're here for him.
Yeah? Like what? Well, is there anything he needs? Mel.
Umanything he'she's going to need'? Uhfood'? (CH UCKLES) He loves food.
Not right now, he doesn't.
Yeah, but he will.
He'll have toat some point.
You know, you're right.
Yeah, we could stock the whole kitchen up with stuff he likes.
Yeah.
See'? That's a great idea.
So, first thing tomorrow, we'll go shopping.
OK.
Hey.
Hi.
These are from Sammy.
They're beautiful.
Yeah.
Have you spoken to her again? No.
No, it was hard.
Dad, I have no idea how you did it.
All those phone calls, Mel's parents.
Just something you should never have to say.
Yeah.
Something you never want to have to hear either.
How's Ben? Still in the same clothes, still not eating.
Yeah, the light was on in his room again last night.
I don't think he's slept at all, Mum.
We can't let him go on like this.
We can't make him sleep or eat.
It's only been two days.
Of course he's gonna be a mess.
Which is why I want him here.
I'm as worried about him as you.
But now's not the time to put any pressure on him.
(KNOCK AT DOOR) Made you a cup of tea.
And your dad and I thought we might make you some breakfast.
I'm not hungry.
(SNIFFS) Oh.
Oh, darling, just a just a piece of toast, something.
OK.
What about a shower? Come on, sweetheart.
I'll get you some clean clothes, put them on the bed, OK'? Well, he's in the shower.
Baby steps, I know, but at least it's something.
(SIGHS) You know, the bag from the coroner's was sitting beside his bed.
It hasn't been opened.
it's justthere.
No wonder he can't sleep.
Melissa's things are everywhere.
That's why he needs to be home.
It's the best place for him.
Well, you said it yourself - you've got him in the shower.
Baby steps, Jules.
Hey.
Hey.
Oh, hey.
Hi.
Just checking on Ben.
Trying to get him to eat something.
Well, forget toast, Mr Rafter.
We've got the mother lode right here.
FEET-FA: Everything he loves.
Yep.
We've got pizza, chips, lollies, snakes.
Doughnuts.
Not necessarily healthy.
Yeah, but whatever Benno wants for whenever Benno's hungry.
Well, this is looking pretty sad in comparison.
Well, I don't care what it is.
Could be a whole block of chocolate, as long as he eats.
And getting out of those clothes will be a step forward too.
I might have a shower later.
JULIE: Uh Some toast there if you want it.
And if you don't, I can make you some pizza.
Super supreme.
Your favourite.
No, I'm right.
Darling, you have to eat something.
And look, I know it's the last thing you want to think about, but there are some decisions that have to be made.
Arrangements Jules.
I've got chocolate biscuits.
You know, the ones you like.
(SOFTLY) No, thanks.
Darling, why don't you come home? Why? Because we can take care of you.
What's gonna change, Mum? What's the difference gonna be'? I justjust want to look after you.
Ice-cream.
I've got your favourite, mate - chocolate chip.
That's Mel's favourite, not mine.
I eat anything.
Mel likes chocolate chip, so I always let her choose.
It's her favourite.
Ben I'm not coming home, Mum.
And I don't want chocolate or ice-cream or any of that crap.
I just want to be here.
I just want to be with Mel.
This is where she is, where she comes to me.
JULIE: You were right.
I shouldn't have pushed.
It'll be OK.
Well, you heard him.
He said she comes to him.
And he talked about her as if she's still here.
He hasn't slept.
He's exhausted.
I know, but not changing, not eating, not accepting what's happened.
Surely that sort of denial can't be healthy.
Yeah, but it's only been a few days, eh? (PHONE RINGS) There's no right or wrong way of coping.
I mean, Iwore your mother's dresses and it helped.
Hello? Oh, hi, Pat.
Yeah, he's here.
It's Melissa's father.
He's just got off the plane at Singapore.
Yeah, no, let me take it.
No, Jules No, Dave.
You rang everyone.
You've carried a lot.
Let me do this.
Pat, hi.
It's, umit's Julie.
Look, I'mI'm so sorry.
I can't begin to imagine Uhwell, no.
No decisions have been made yet.
Ben just hasn't really been up to dealing UmOK.
Ben, why didn't you wake me? I can't believe I slept so late.
I know what you've done here, by the way.
You reckon if you do it wrong the first time, I'll never ask you to do the washing again.
Well, if it was gonna work, it would have been my load you put the red sock in.
Mm-hm.
(GIGGLES) Lucky for you it's only real men who can wear pink, right? Hey.
Can I join you'? Sure.
What were you thinking about? The washing.
Darling, um Mel's dad called from Singapore.
They're gonna be here tomorrow morning.
(MEL (memes) Ben? I can see her.
Andit's so real, it's like she hasn't gone.
Do you think that sounds crazy? No.
No, I don't.
Are you here to pack my bags for me? Um, no.
Won't even mention it, I promise.
It's just that when I spoke to Pat, he'she's pretty anxious to know what's been decided about th about the funeral.
I told him we hadn't talked about it but that it's something that we will have to, I guess, when they get here.
Mum, don't.
I can't do this.
Ben Ben, I know it's hard, but I just I just want you to have the option of being involved.
I don't want this taken out of your hands.
So, what did Pat say? What does he want? There are two things that areimportant to him.
He'd like an open coffin.
Are you serious? I don't want her on display, Mum, likelike some freak show! I know how confronting it sounds, darling How could anyone want to see her like that'? Well, it's just These rituals, they help people accept, say goodbye.
Darling, they haven't seen her since the wedding.
Yeah, and whose fault is that?! And they're probably gonna regret it the rest of They should have made the effort! They were happy enough to jump on a plane to London to see her brother! (SIGHS) What else did he say? Mum, what else? I He said he wanted a burial, not a cremation.
Did you have any thoughts on which way you wanted to go? 'Up- I don't know.
You never talked about it? Why would we'? We were gonna have a baby.
That's what we were planning, not this.
I don't want any of this.
Darling, I know.
And I know that not dealing with it seems like the easier option, but someone's gonna have to make a decision.
And if it's not you, it's gonna be Pat.
I just don't think that's what Mel would have wanted.
OK.
Cremation.
There - decision.
And there is no way there's gonna be an open coffin.
OK.
Do you think we should go back in, offer to help somehow'? No, no.
Out here I can't open my big mouth and say the wrong thing.
Carbo “Chocolate chip ice-cream.
Come on, Benno.
It's your favourite.
Have some.
" How were you supposed to know'? We've been best mates since we were three years old.
I should know.
Is he OK, Mrs Rafter? Uh, well, he's gone back upstairs.
He should get some sleep.
He's swaying on his feet.
Should I get some sleeping tablets or something? No, darling.
I don't think that's a good idea.
No, of course not.
Ignore me.
I'm an idiot.
No, you're not.
You're a good friend.
You know, she's right.
Yeah, sure.
Carbo, you have got to stop beating yourself up.
Remember, you've lost someone too.
(SIGHS) Don't know why I'm bothering.
Hardly think Pat and Linda are going to notice.
Yeah.
A few more sympathy cards.
Ah.
Dad, did we do enough for you when Mum died'? What do you mean? Well, how did you get through? The same way you did.
Minute by minute.
The same way Ben is.
Hey, he'll come out the other side.
Have you seen my keys? Where are you off to? To pick Chel up from the airport.
Here.
Take the wagon.
That's what I bought it for.
Drive carefully.
Thanks, Dad.
How did you go? Well, he's made two decisions.
Cremation andno open coffin.
Oh, God.
Who could blame him? That's so morbid.
Who would want that'? Look, Ben has the final say.
Pat's just gonna have to accept that.
(MOANS SLEEPILY) (LAUGHS) Oh, my God! I just had the weirdest dream.
It was you, my mum Do you want me to go on or do you want me to stop right there? Look at your face! (LAUGHS) Don't worry.
I promise you it wasn't that scary.
(GIGGLES) Oh! Hey.
Oh, Chel, it's so good to have you here.
I wish it was for a happier reason.
I thought I could smell patchouli.
(LAUGHS) Oh Chel, you look great.
Come here, you.
Ooh.
Yes, it is patchouli.
And a bit of sandalwood, I think.
How was your flight? Oh, fine, fine.
Didn't sleep much.
(RU BY COOS) Oh, look at you! Haven't you grown? Only around the waist.
Oh! Not you, you big oaf! (LAUGHS) Say hello to Grandma Chel.
Do you remember her? Hello.
So beautiful.
I've got a present for you all the way from India.
Yeah.
And judging by the weight of this bag, it's an elephant.
(ALL LAUGH) Ben? I'll let him know you're here.
Hey.
Hi.
What are you doing here? Um I heard about the accident.
I read it in the paper.
I just wanted to say I'm sorry.
Pay my respects.
I know no-one cares what I think.
I know that.
But I wanted to say it anyway.
Thanks.
It's been a pretty rough time for everyone.
Ben's not real good.
Yeah.
Really sucks.
It does.
Well, you're reading.
That's good.
Wh'? (LAUGHS) Just the paper.
Don't get too excited.
Nah, it's good.
Do I Oh, and you got rid of Brenton, I see.
Brenton's gone.
Wow.
(CHUCKLES) Yeah.
What happened with the police, Coby'? Got charged.
Pleaded guilty.
Sentence comes out next year.
Whatever I get, I deserve.
I was an idiot.
Can't argue with that.
I'd take it all back if I could, Nath.
It was the, uh biggest mistake of my life, so Look, Il should go.
Can you not tell Dave? He probably wouldn't be too happy if I was here.
Everything that's happened, it's hit him pretty hard.
He hasn't really been himself lately.
Yeah.
I get that.
Oh, it's so beautiful! I love the colours.
Thank you.
I got one for you too, Ted.
Don't think it's quite my style.
No, no.
It's a men's outfit.
It's called a dhoti.
You must be dotty if you think I'm gonna wear that! Well, it was good enough for Gandhi.
Rachel, can you feed Ruby'? Sure.
Thanks.
Here we are.
Yum yum.
Is there any point in asking Ben again? No.
I think he just wants some space.
It's understandable.
Mmm.
And Carbo and Retta have gone to the movies.
What, so he's on his own'? He was lying on his bed, Mum.
What else can I do? On (CHUCKLES) I don't know what Ruby's problem is.
Isn't it obvious? You're just not that good with kids.
Hey.
I used to feed you when you were little.
You shoved dirt in my mouth in the playground.
That hardly counts.
You still ate it, though, didn't you? That's right, Nathan.
You did.
I did.
That's true.
Give it here.
My turn.
Alright.
You can have a go.
Let's show your big sis how we do it.
Are you ready? Oh! (LAUGHS) Nice.
That's good work, Nathan.
Well done.
Thing is, Ruby, if you make me feel like an idiot, I'm not going to buy you good Christmas presents.
I'm not.
Hey, move over.
No self-respecting daughter of mine is gonna succumb to bribery as pathetic as that.
OK, Ruby, give me the spoon.
(LAUGHS) Now, you eat up all your dinner and Daddy will take you to Disneyland.
What? Oh! Throw pumpkin on his face - I'll fly you first class.
Stop giving her ideas.
(LAUGHS) Hey.
Could you not encourage her, please? NATHAN: I got a skateboard.
Oh, I hate this.
Stop! (LAUGHS) Pat.
Linda.
Sorry, I didn't hear you.
Didn't want to interrupt.
Thought it was some kind of a party.
We knocked, but I'msorry.
I'm so sorry.
DAVE: Yeah.
I didn't think you were coming in till tomorrow.
Umwe got an early flight.
JULIE: Please, come in.
You must be exhausted.
Have a seat.
Can I get you something to eat or drink? I just want to get on with what has to be done.
There's no answer next door.
ls Ben here? Uh, n-no.
He might be sleeping.
You sure you want to do this tonight? You don't want to have a rest first? There's no point in putting it off.
OK.
I'll go get Ben.
(KNOCK AT DOOR) Darling, Pat and Linda are here.
They got an earlier flight.
They want to talk about the funeral arrangements.
I already told you what I want.
You sure you don't want to just say hello, talk things through? I can't.
OK.
So have the police finally worked out what happened? I believe so, yes.
Somebody else was involved, were they? Pat No.
Questions need to be asked.
Thanks, Mum.
Let's go help Rachel with the baby.
Good idea.
So, this guy, thisthis other driver.
I bet he was drunk, was he? No, the other driver was a woman.
She was drunk'? Speeding, probably.
Look, uh the accident was Melissa's fault.
(SCOFFS) om She ran a stop sign and the other car ran into her.
Oh, God.
No, no.
They've got that wrong.
There's no way.
Melissa was always a very safe driver.
That's not what happened.
There were witnesses.
Look, she must have just lost concentration for a second.
Who knows'? I'm sorry.
Uh Where's Ben? We're gonna have to do this without him, I'm afraid.
He's just not up to it.
Well, it's not a conversation any of us want to have.
For Melissa's sake, we can't just ignore the issue.
'Up- Well, Ben's told us what he wants, so It sounds like a cop-out! (BLEEP) ('FIX YOU' BY COLDPLAY PLAYS) Lights will guide you home Look, OK, let's not bother him.
BEN: It's the song! The same song! The clock radio came on.
It was the song, the same song.
What? It was just like the other morning.
The radio came on and it was the song.
Only, today, I didn't even have the clock set and it just came on for no reason.
Benno, what song are you talking about? The one me and Mel were listening to the other morning.
I just told you.
Why would the radio come on like that and be playing our song? I dunno, mate.
Are you sure you didn't accidentally set the radio? For this time of night? Why would I'? Hey, where are you going? Next door.
Mel's parents are here.
I need to talk to them.
Hey, Benno! I don't want to argue.
I thought I made it clear.
And I passed this all on to Ben.
There's going to be a burial! I know this is difficult.
Let's try and remain calm.
It's OK, Dave.
UhBen's friend Nick - Carbo - I think you might have met him at the wedding.
He's a florist and he's offered to do the flowers.
Roses.
Melissa would have wanted red roses.
Yeah, sorry, I I suppose we just thought daisies because that's what she had at the wedding, so Yes, you're right.
That What does it matter what flowers? It's all gonna go up in smoke.
Pat No, I'm sorry.
But this is our daughter we're talking about! Ben.
Darling.
Come in.
Hey.
How was your flight? Oh, Ben, I am so sorry.
Oh, maybe not a good idea.
I haven't had a shower.
JULIE: Come and sit down, sweetheart.
I thought of something for the service.
Oh! (SCOFFS) We haven't even got that far.
We're still going round in circles.
Pat is very much in favour of a burial.
I already told Mum I think Mel would want cremation.
And how would you know that'? Did you ever talk about it? No, not directly.
So she never specifically said that's what she wanted.
She didn't know it was going to be an issue, but I know Mel, and I know what she would have wanted.
Ben is the next of kin.
Yes, I know he's the husband.
I know he gets all the say.
I also know he wasn't there when my daughter died.
And for all your promises to look after her, you weren't bloody there, were you?! You're the last person to be making any accusations about not being there for her! You let her down, not Ben! Dave! So don't walk in here thinking you can start making up for everything you didn't do for your daughter while she was alive! JULIE: Dave, that's enough! I'mI'm so sorry.
I really think we should go.
Linda, I'm Let's just do this later.
Linda, I'm sorry.
Pat No.
JULIE: Not only was sleep evading Ben, now he must have felt he was living a nightmare.
You don't have to say anything.
I know.
This is when Ben needs me the most and I'ml get angry.
Ll can't help it.
Hey.
You weren't the only one.
Pat was pretty worked up as well.
He's the one who's lost his daughter and I'm the one tearing people's heads off'? Hey, you said yourself, we're all just dealing with this the best way we can.
You and I both know there's more to it than that.
After the funeral, I'm going to call the doctor and ask her to give me the name of someone I can talk to.
OK.
RACHEL: You can have my room.
No.
Come on, stay here with us.
You have the bed, I'll sleep on the floor.
It'll be like aslumber party.
Yeah.
Why not? Rach, are you gonna wear your Barbie PJs? I never had Barbie pyjamas, Nathan.
She did.
They were pink, remember? I think you'll find they were My Little Pony.
Oh, right.
'Cause that's so much cooler.
How's Dad? Is he OK'? Oh, darling.
The situation just got the better of him.
He feels terrible.
See you tomorrow, Ben.
You off'? I'm staying with friends.
Ted's dropping me off.
Alright.
You alright? No.
No, that wasn't good.
We can talk, yeah? After? Yep.
Thanks.
Thanks, Mum.
Ben, I'm sorry.
I, uh should never have lost my temper.
He had a point, though, didn't he? I wasn't with Mel.
I couldn't take care of her.
Hey.
No, Ben, don't even go there.
Yeah.
Rachel's right.
Don't ever think that, ever.
You hear me? Ben! Ben, do you hear me? There's a song that I want at the funeral.
That's what I came over to say.
Whatever you want, sweetheart.
Yeah.
And I'm gonna call Pat and Linda and apologise.
Don't worry, I'm gonna sort this all out for you.
And Melissa.
Let me make you something healthy for dinner.
Nah, I'm not hungry.
You sure? (CH UCKLES) (MUFFLED) I'm just trying to get through all the food we bought, OK'? Well, there's no rush.
It's so full of preservatives, it's not going to go off.
Chips don't go off, they go stale.
Well, I wouldn't know.
I try not to eat anything bad.
Sugar, additives.
When's the last time you had junk food? I don't know.
Maybe when I was (SIGHS) .
.
five'? You're kidding? Go on, have one.
No, thanks.
Oh, come on.
You'll love it.
No.
Oh, come on.
Look how cute it is.
Look, just like me.
Come on.
Keep me company.
Well, I guess one little chip can't hurt.
Oh, my God! Hey? What did I tell you? (MUFFLED) Mmm.
That is good! And don't forget to breathe, yeah? I'm gonna get you to try some doughnuts.
Mmm, no, no.
Oh, you'll love doughnuts.
No.
Oop.
Hey.
How'd it go? Not that I was expecting a great time or anything Let's just say me and big Pat have reached a whole new level of understanding.
Ben, do you want me to get you anything or do anything? I might just shut the hell up and stop asking.
Goodnight.
We were just eating them because we thought you didn't want 'em.
But, umif you do No, it's OK.
Look, I, uml lost it this morning.
I'm sorry.
Hey, you don't have to be sorry, honestly.
I was an idiot.
No, you weren't.
You were just trying to do what was right.
Chip? No, thanks.
(VOMITS) There you go.
Thanks.
I know Ben doesn't want her on show.
We don't either.
But we've seen her now.
You know, people try to tell you it's like they're asleep.
But it's not.
She wasn't there.
She's gone.
Where's Linda? Oh, uh, back in the motel.
She's not coping very well.
Well, I know I said it on the phone, but I really wanted to apologise to both of you for what I said.
It wasn't anyone's finest moment.
Well, what I said about Ben wasn't called for either.
Melissa made this for me when she was seven.
I've always kept it.
I never told her that.
You see, that's where I got it wrong.
If I could have my time again, I'd tell my girl all that mattered was that we loved her.
Hey, Benny.
I was just wondering if I could get something ready for you.
Iron a shirt or polish your shoes.
I can't see her anymore.
I can't see her.
I keep waiting and she just doesn't come.
Don't say anything.
Don't tell me I'm crazy.
I wasn't going to.
Maybe you're just so overtired that your brain's not working properly.
You need to sleep, man.
I've got to write what I'm gonna say today.
Listen, if it's too much to do, thenyou don't have to.
Everyone will understand.
Nah, I've got to write something.
I've still got a few hours.
Oh, come on.
Oh, for God's sake.
Hey, Jules, have we got any more shoelaces? Huh? Just say nothing, OK'? Well, stop fiddling.
Should I go and get Ben or'? No, he's with Nathan.
They'll be here together.
JAKE: Are you OK'? I have a tissue.
I don't know where else to keep them.
It's fine.
You can never have too many.
Stop looking.
No-one will notice.
OK.
Alright.
Where's Ben? He's got his shirt on, ready to go.
He asked for a few more minutes.
I like your laces.
I bet Mel would have too.
(KNOCK AT DOOR) NATHAN: Benny? We should go.
I don't know if this is gonna be alright.
Whatever you've written, I'm sure it's gonna be perfect.
This is my wedding suit.
It's the only suit I've got.
You look good.
It's gonna be fine.
We have to go.
(SOMBRE ORGAN MUSIC PLAYS) Do I go and say hello? Uhdarling, you do whatever you want to do.
I should.
I'm OK.
What's he doing here? He knows about Mel.
He came round the other day.
To say that he's sorry.
Yeah, I bet he is.
He knows he stuffed up bad, Dad.
And, honestly, with everything that's happened with Mel, he's really cut up about it.
Yeah, darling.
It's good that he's here.
He should be here.
(ORGAN MUSIC PLAYS) (ORGAN STOPS) I spent all last night thinking of what to say.
How to talk about Mel and how there's just no-one else like her.
When she first walked up to our front door and I saw her there ('FIX YOU' BY COLDPLAY PLAYS) SONG: And the tears come streaming down your face When you lose something you can't replace When you love someone but it goes to waste (READS) “.
.
l saw her there “and all I could think was, 'Wow!' “Maybe that's the only word you need for Mel.
“Maybe that says it all.
“I'm Mel's best friend and she is mine, “and no matter what happens, that's never going to change.
“And she's smart too.
“If I make the shirts pink, she knows why I've done it.
" (LAUGHS) “Sometimes she wakes up and tells me whatever dreams she's had.
" (READS) “But there are other dreams too.
“Plans for our life.
“Sometimes we talk about them.
“But mostly we don't even have to" (VOICE FADES) When you're too in love to let it go But if you never try, you'll never know Just what you were Lights will guide you home We didn't, did we'? And ignite Oh! Yay! .
.
your bones (BOTH LAUGH, SHOUT) I will try to fix you Will you marry me? Yes.
Yes! (LAUGHS) (SQUEALS) We're getting married! To each other.
(GAS PS) (ALL LAUGH, CHEER) I love you! I love you too! CROWD: (SHOUTS) To Ben and Melissa! (SQUEALS) Tears stream Down your face I promise you I will learn from my mistakes Tears stream Down your face J"Andl Lights will guide you home And ignite your bones And I will try to fix you.
I'm gonna say hello.
Hey, hey, hey! DAVE: This is a surprise.
Uh, yeah.
Not a bad one, I hope.
Wasn't meant to be.
No, we've had enough of them lately.
Yeah.
Look, I don't know how you swung it, but thanks for coming.
Oh, didn't you know'? I've got 'em wrapped around my little finger.
We're having everyone back to our place if you think you can make it.
Oh, I don't think I've got quite that much clout.
Thanks all the same.
Uhthat's Melissa's parents, so I Yeah, yeah.
You go.

Go.
Hey, you weren't running off without saying goodbye, were you? I was starting to think you'd forgotten what family means.
(CH UCKLES) I've just been really busy lately.
Yeah, yeah.
So I've heard.
Yeah.
Oop.
Here's me shadow.
Got to go.
Well, here's hoping my parole goes well.
With a bit of luck, we'll be catching up more often.
CARBO: Hey, Natho, remember when we put that sexy waterbed together? Who in their right mind would ever think a waterbed is sexy? I can't believe you don't.
Well, I just might have to rethink our whole relationship.
Well, Mel thought it was funny, didn't she, Benno'? Yeah, she did.
It was either laugh or hit you over the head, so (ALL LAUGH) There was a waterbed in this place we stayed at when Mel was little, remember? Mmm.
She and her brothers put a hole in it byjumping (CHATTER CONTI N U ES) JULIE: As much as we wanted to help, there was nothing more we could do.

SONG: I want to take my time Breathe when you breathe (SIGHS HEAVILY) I want to memorise your face Every inch of you looks so at peace Don't want to say goodnight Don't want to let my eyes fall shut I don't want to fall asleep You're exhausted.
You need to get some sleep.
Everything is balancing I love you.
And I always will.
I don't want anything to change I don't want to think about How I would feel if this all went away I don't want to say goodnight Don't want to let my eyes fall shut JULIE: Well, maybe he's gone next door.
If he did, it's his choice.
I know.
I just don't want him to be alone JULIE: When he was a little boy, we'd wait till he was completely worn out, then finally he'd sleep.
I don't want to say goodnight No, 'cause I don't ever want to wait I didn't know if this was rest or anything close to it, but his eyes were closed.
And when he wakes and has to start his life again, we'll be here for him.
