Good morning, William.

She's a beauty, isn't she?

That she is, Mr. Steadman.

Price is a little steep, though.

- I just want the best.

- Hmm!

Perfectly understandable.

But first, allow me to show you

Some of our newer models.

Here we have

a 20 gauge steel shell.

Locking and fully casketed.

It also comes in a dark

hunter green finish with

Gold tone maple leaf

design hardware.

Moving on.

My heart's set on Angelica.

Ahh.

The Rolls Royce of basketry.

We're planning a sale

In late October featuring some

stunning new Bavarian design.

Keep me posted,

Mr. Steadman.

You mind if I

close the hatch?

Just for a moment.

You know William,

while I enjoy these visits

Of yours, it occurs to me

that a young man

Such as yourself, should be

out shopping for... cars.

Not... coffins.

They say a coffin

holds enough air

To keep a man alive

for three hours.

So when I'm in here...

Why does it feel

like I can live forever?

I've been asked today

to talk about Cystic Fibrosis.

Now, normally I would perform

One to three hours

of physio daily.

Like Tarzan.

Only I'm not showing off

for Jane...

I'm just trying to breathe.

Because my body lacks

the proper digestive enzymes

To keep my pancreas

clear of cysts,

And my liver

unblocked from bile,

I have to pop more pills

than Rush Limbaugh.

And uh... Other than that,

life's peachy.

Questions?

I really enjoyed your talk.

- Thanks.

- Penny.

Pre-med.

Uh, Will. Pre-dead.

I was wondering...

If it's true that your chances

of fertilizing an ovum

Are roughly 2.06 million,

I mean...

Technically wouldn't that

make you infertile?

Um, like a neutered goat.

Well, this...

has its advantages.

Are we... flirting?

You tell me.

Sorry.

I don't have a lot of room

in my life for anything other

Than my routine.

I've got to do my physio.

Take my meds...

Puff an hour

in the nebulizer.

To keep my weight up,

I've got to eat 4,000 calories

a day.

Oh yeah.

I go to a lot

of funerals, too.

At 21 I've probably been

to more funerals

Than most 80 year olds.

Bobby and I were friends

back in the ward.

We'd always joke that only

one of us would make it

Past our 21st birthday.

I guess he was right.

Cough sounds soupy today.

Last week it was barky,

and the week before

It was hydraulic.

We ran into

Sarah Bennet today.

Pancake house.

Mom, it was the 6th grade!

I held her hand at recess.

And then... she cheated

on me with Ronald Brinkman.

Well she asked about ya.

And she has

really filled out, son.

Jesus, guys!

I know you don't like it

when we make a big fuss

So we settled for just one.

Happy 21, Will.

Elevated

sodium chloride levels

Are often an early indicator.

That's why you tasted

salt on the skin.

Of course, with all the

recent treatment programs

There are many patients

living into their late 20's.

But when death

speaks to us,

What does it say?

Death does not speak

about itself.

It does not say "fear me. "

It does not say

"wonder at me. "

It does not say

"understand me. "

But it says to us,

"Think of life. "

"Think of the

privilege of life. "

I've heard so many priests

deliver eulogies,

I can't help but rate them

on their performance.

It's like some tragic

American Idol in my head.

Bobby hated flowers.

So what do they do?

Toss a hundred roses

at his funeral.

65 actually.

I guess you knew that.

You probably don't recognize

me without an IV drip.

I remember you, Will.

Maybe you can

answer a question.

Why Del Sol?

It's a healing shrine

down in Mexico.

Some of the kids, we...

used to joke about going.
