KELLY: dad what on earth is it?

ALLAN: Kelly how do you fell about dying to be with your mother again?

MONICA: Do you want to make me happy Allan do it!

ALLAN: I’m not taking my daughters’ life Monica. I will not be subjected to this, I’ll come with you. We can wait for her to come; we can’t force her into it.

MONICA: Wise you are Allan my time on this earth I spent well but I am still not at peace. I would settle down with you here.

ALLAN: Darling I will see you on the side but first I will need to say goodbye.

MONICA: Very well see you soon

ALLAN: Kelly wake up, wake up!

KELLY: Yes dad I never really fell asleep, but I was on the verge of it.
ALLAN: Kelly these are the things I want to say to you before I’m kicking daisies.

KELLY: Dad you can’t take your own life. I’m sure that mom doesn’t want us too. You’re reacting to this in a bad way. There is a better way to solve things.

ALLAN: Kelly I want you to have all of my things and move in with aunt Terra. I’ve made my final decision.

KELLY: (Sobbing) Dad NO!

ALLAN: Do you want me to be happy?
