You're afraid of hearing it,

but I'm more afraid than you.

I won't listen to you.

No! You've got to know.

I've got to tell you.

I can't keep it to myself

any longer.

I'm guilty !

You're guilty of nothing !

I've been telling

myself that...

Since the night I heard

the child say it.

I lie in bed night after night,

praying that it isn't true.

But I know about it now.

It's there.

I don't know how,

I don't know why.

But I did love you--

I do love you !

I resented

your plans to marry--

Maybe because I wanted you.

Maybe I wanted you

all these years.

I couldn't call it

by name before,

But maybe it's been there

since I first knew you.

- not the truth !

Not a word of it is true !

We never thought of each other

that way !

No, of course you didn't.

I used to say I didn't.

I never felt that way

about anybody but you.

I've never loved a man.

I never knew why.

Shut up !

Maybe it's best.

You're tired, worn out.

It's funny.

It's all mixed up.

So how was the movie, ladies ?

You recommend it ?

Oh, too much high drama

for my taste.

I like comedy better.

Me too. Say,

you ladies need somebody

to see you home ?

Oh, no, thank you, sam.

We can see just fine

on our own, thank you.

Anytime you need an escort--

if we do, it'll be you, sam,


Hello, boys.

Wait, let me help you,

for god sakes.

- I have it.

You don't.

You're gonna hurt your back.

Oh, shut up.

Oh, I'm fine.

Just got a little

out of breath,

that's all.


You sure you're all right ?

I'm fine.

Sure you're all right ?

You wicked wretch.

I'm fine.

Ah, ah ! Oh, oh !

Edith, edith.

You look kinda peaked,

sweetie. Go to bed.

I'll bring you some tea.

I just wanna fill the feeders.

Do it in the morning.

The birds can wait.

Where is that damn scoop ?

You always put it

in a different place.

It's in the same place

every time.

Where the hell is it ?

I'll get it.

- Oh.

You stupid,

bullheaded old woman.

oh, god. I--

Don't stay too long

out there.

- I won't.

Abby ?

Abby !

Abby !

Are you still out there ?

I'm checking on something.

Well, for sweet's sake,

put some light on at least.

Oh, my god ! Abby,

are you out of your mind ?

I saw some Starlings building

a nest up here. I just wanna

see what they're up to.

They're not up to anything,

you fool. They're asleep.

Just be quiet, would you ?

Hush up yourself.

Do you want some tea ?

Yeah, please.

You be careful now.

I'm watching you.

Edie, I knew it !

She's sitting on some eggs.

Oh, lovely.

Oh, hello, pretty bird.

How many do you have in there ?

Oh, leave the bird alone.

You'll scare the wits

out of her.

I wanna build

another house out here.

This one is always filled.

Oh, I think this is

the one I banded.

I can't believe it, edie,

she came back !

No wonder, darling.

You spoil the poor bird rotten.

Go to sleep, pretty bird.

Don't mind me.

Go to sleep, little darling.

- This where we wait ?

- Yes.

They just took my husband in.

He had a heart attack.

We were in the den,

having our coffee

after dinner,

And I was sitting

in my chair,

reading my magazine,

And then I--

I thought,

"it got

very quiet in here.

Why's it so quiet ?"

And I looked over

at James--

He was slumped

in his chair,

And he wasn't breathing.

He had a heart attack...

Right in front of me.

I never even noticed.

Here. It's clean.

Thank you.

Thank you.

You're very kind.

Thank you.

Why are you here ?

Is it your husband too ?

My friend fell off a ladder.

We think she had a stroke.

- Did she break any bones ?

- Don't know yet.


She'll be fine.

Is your husband

still alive ?

I never had a husband.

Well, that's lucky,

'cause you won't have

the heartbreak of losing one.

Mrs. Carpenter, you can see

your husband now.

Is he all right ?

The doctor would like

to talk to you.

Oh, my god,

it's not good.

It's not good.

Excuse me ?

Can you tell me what is

happening with miss henley ?

Oh, you're the lady

who brought her in.

Yes, I am. Is she all right ?

She's stabilized. They're gonna

move her into intensive care.

May I see her ?

Only family members

are allowed in after hours.

Come back tomorrow.

Can I see her for a moment ?

She might be scared.

Oh, I wouldn't worry about her.

They're taking good care of her.

Best thing you can do

is come back tomorrow.

Well, I'm going to stay

right here. Would you please

tell her that i am here ?

I will, ma'am, I will.

If anything changes,

would you let me know ?


Excuse me, can you tell me

where intensive care is ?

Down the hall.

I was told

that she was here.

I don't see her chart anywhere.

What's the patient's name ?

Abigail Henley.

I brought her into

the emergency ward

last night.

She'd had a stroke,

and they thought

she might've broken her hip.

At least we know she didn't

just up and walk out of here.

Don't worry, ma'am.

We will track her down.

Let's check the geriatric ward.

But I've been here all night.

I asked them to come get me

if anything changed.

They should've told me

if she was moved.

Don't worry, we'll find her.

You know, visiting hours

don't start till 10:00.

I know.

I know that.

I just want to know...

If she's doing all right.

Is she all right ?

Is anything wrong ?

Did you find her ?

Are you any relation

of hers, ma'am ?

No, I'm a friend.

I'm a very good friend.

Does she have
