Sometimes when I wake up,

I just feel so high

I feel like walking on top

of a rainbow sky

Where the grass don't grow

and women know

Time flies by

Oh, oh, oh, oh

I move my hips down low


You'll notice where I go

And when the lights

are low, low, low

You're gonna pick me up

and never let me go

Brandy. Hey, girl.

Hey, girl. Where you at?

Yeah, hey. We're, uh...

we're still about

eight hours outside Houston.

Are y'all driving

straight through?

Yeah, we're going to stop,

maybe grab a bite,

clean up a bit and then,

you know, we'll see my dad,

we'll spend a night or two


and then we'll be in L.A.

by the end of the week.

Just in time for that CSI


Babe, can you put that out?


You guys find a place yet?


Sandra got us a cute

little studio.


I know.

Um, but, you know, we're still

on a really tight budget.

I have a couple thousand saved

from my student loans,

and what Kevin saved up

this past

year while I was

finishing school.

You're happy?

Yeah, we are.

And Kevin?

He's helping me with my lines.

He's the best

boyfriend ever.


Okay, yeah.

We're really excited

to see you too.

Okay. Bye, chica.

Bye, girl.

To sing a song

To sing a song

We're gonna pick me up

And never let me go

Because the day

Is long gone

And yesterday

Will never come again

There is no right...

You're killing me.

What do you think

about the script?


Is that bad?

It's wonderful.

I thought so too.


What's this?

A box...

made for rings.

Oh, my...

I wanted to ask

your dad first,

but I couldn't wait.

I can't wait to spend the rest

of my life with you.

You're gonna pick me up

and never let me go

You're gonna pick me up

and never let me go

You're gonna pick me up

And never let me go

All right, go tell them.

I'll get the luggage.

Daddy? Dad.

It's Mo and Kevin.

His car's still

in the garage.

Call Billie.

Aunt Billie?

Where's Daddy?

I should have been here

with you.

I'm sorry.

I was planning on telling you

when you got here.

And I was coping just fine

till last night.

Billie should have

called me.

This isn't her fault.

This was my decision,

and mine alone.

Well, I could have, you know,

been here with you...


What could you have done?

I would have made you

do the chemo.

Sweetheart, I taught you never

to give up on your dreams

because you feel obligated

to a man.

And that includes me.

We should have at least

discussed it.

There's nothing

they could do.


Hey, what's this?

Kevin, come here.

I'm really sorry, sir.

I wanted to wait

to ask you first.

Enough of that "sir" stuff.

From now on...

Oh, my God. Dad!




Come on.



I'm okay, honey.

Sit down. I'm okay.

Her mama

really liked you, son.


Thank you.

We can't leave.

I know.

How long do you think

they'll hold our apartment?

I mean, they have our deposit,

so, uh, you know,

maybe a month.

What about

your fellowship?

It's unpaid anyway.

You should go.

That's the perfect


I'm not leaving.

But you saved up

all last year

so you could take

that opportunity.

With you.

That's our money.

It's for our future.

I love you.

I love you, babe.


Miss Moore?


Hi, I'm Dr. Jones, your father's

attending physician.

I missed you

the other day.

Um, Dr. Cook,

the hospital administrator,

needs to see you

right away.

Is there a problem?

Well, Monica,

your father's benefits have run

out for his hospital coverage.

It would only cover

hospice care.
