Snippet 1, Henry’s “anger”:
I really tried to be a gentleman about all this. But now you need to get the hell out.
Letting you go was the worst thing I’ve ever done. It was the most painful thing I’ve ever done, and I’m a guy Who has had 82 surgeries. My threshold for pain is pretty high. You need to get out.
I’m not your best bud. I’m not your security blanket. I’m a man who’s in love with you, who watched you into the arms of a damn knight on a horse. … And please,for god sakes,Leave me alone.
Snippet 2, Meredith’s closing voiceover:
There’s a reason I said I’d be happy alone. It wasn’t because I thought I’d be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone, and then I fell apart, I might not make it.
It’s easier to be alone. Because what if you learn that you need love, and then you don’t have it? What if you like it, and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it… and then… It falls apart?
Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It’s like dying. The only difference is, death ends. This? It could go on forever.
