- She can't breathe!

- Hand her to me. Quick, quick.

I'm a nurse. -Ali, please!

- Quick, quick, quick, quick, quick.

- Okay, just stay calm.

Come on.

Come on, Ali, cough for me.

- Cough, honey.

- She can't breathe, Lee!

She can't...


- (coughs)


Cough, baby. Cough, baby.

- Sweetie? Okay...

- (Alison coughs)


- (murmuring)

- (coughs)

- Just breathe, okay?

She's coughing.

- She's fine now. She's fine.

- Okay?

Okay, just breathe.

- LEE:
Thank you so much.

Thank you, thank you.

- I don't know how to thank you.

- Come here, baby. Come here.

- Thank you so much.

- You don't have to thank me.

I'm a nurse at Mercy Hospital.

She's gonna be fine now.

We're so lucky.

Well, it's not luck.

It's Jesus.

My husband and I were on our way

to another restaurant tonight.

Something told me

I needed to be here.

Wow. Thank you.

Um, Leslie.

Alfie. Alfie Davis.

I'm not gonna forget you.


God bless you.

(Lee sighs)

Just keeping it

interesting, huh?

You keep drinking that.

(insects trilling)

I can still

have candy, though, right?

LESLIE (chuckling):

We'll have to see about that.

You get some sleep now,

all right, missy?

- Mom?

- Hmm?

Who's Jesus?

Jesus was a man... great man...

And... you know,

we've talked about God, right?

Honey, you know

how Mommy and Daddy

read you stories at night...

You know, the fairy tales

that you like?

So, believing in God

is kind of like that...

It's really nice stories.

But we are atheists.

Atheists don't believe in God.

What do they believe?

Uh, they believe in what's real,

in what we can see,

what we can touch.

Like What?

Oh... like this.
