Sister Monica Joan:
[quoting Leigh Hunt's poem] Jenny kissed me when we met, jumping from the chair she sat in. Time, you thief, who love to get. Sweets into your list put that in!

Sister Evangelina:
You make sure you eat three square meals a day and a proper breakfast. I have my spies. Hear me?

Cynthia Miller:
We will write often. And you must write, too.

Trixie Franklin:
Yes. We want to hear every titbit of enthralling news from the Motherhouse!

[Cynthia, Trixie, and Jenny embrace, as Sr. Winifred rushes out of the house]

Sister Winifred:
We've had a call from Joy Higgins in Orient Buildings. Looks like baby's on the way!

Trixie Franklin:
I should go. I'm first on call.

Sister Winifred:
Oh! You stay and wave Nurse Lee off.

Cynthia Miller:
You sure?

Sister Winifred:
Never more so.

[Sr. Winifred leaves, as Sr. Julienne takes Jenny's hands]

Sister Julienne:
May you find peace, my dear.

[Fred helps Jenny get inside the car. Sr. Monica Joan leans through the open window]

Sister Monica Joan:
[quoting Leigh Hunt's poem] Say I'm weary, say I'm sad. Say that health and wealth have missed me. Say I'm growing old, but add Jenny kissed me.

[Sr. Monica Joan kisses Jenny's hand. Sr. Evangelina leads Monica Joan away from the car. As the car drives away, the group on the steps wave goodbye]

Mature Jenny:
[narrating] The doors to Nonnatus House were still wide open but my heart had closed. All I could do was try to keep living until I felt alive again.
