How many lives do we live? How many times do we die? They say we all lose 21 grams... at the exact moment of our death. Everyone. And how much fits into 21 grams? How much is lost? When do we lose 21 grams? How much goes with them? How much is gained? How much is gained? Twentyone grams. The weight of a stack of five nickels. The weight of a hummingbird. A chocolate bar. How much did 21 grams weigh?
Katie could have lived. She'd be alive right now but that bastard left her there. Laying in the street. He left the three of them like animals. He didn't care. She could be here with me. That son of a bitch is walking the streets, and I can't even go into their room. I wanna kill him. I'm gonna kill Jack Jordan. I'm gonna kill that son of a bitch.
Slow down, just slow down.
Slow down. Slow down. While I what, huh? While I what?
Take it easy.
Take it easy? My husband and my little girls are dead, and I'm supposed to take it f***ing easy? I can't just go on with my life! I am paralyzed here! I am a f***ing amputee! Do you see that? Who are you? You owe it to Michael. No, you've got his heart. You're in house f***ing his wife! And sitting in his chair! We have to kill him!
Not like this.
Then how? Tell me how! Katie died with red shoelaces on. She hated red shoelaces. And she kept asking me to get her some blue ones. And I never got her the blue ones. She was wearing those f***ing red shoelaces when she was killed!
The heart that you're carrying is going to give out soon. I need you to stay in the hospital until we can find you another donor.
I can't do that. I can't wait for someone to die locked up in a white room.
Your heart is going to give out sooner than you think. You will die from asphyxiation. Its not a nice death. At least here-
You can help me die better?! You can help me die better. I'm not going to do that. I'd rather die outside.
