Scottie: I don't like eggs.
Matt: Why didn't you tell me before I made them?
Scottie: I thought they were for you.
Matt: Good morning. How you feeling? Hung over? Why am I not surprised? I thought you were supposed to be getting your act together.
Alex: I have gotten my act together. I was just drinking. I've been doing really well, actually. Nobody ever seems to notice that. Grades are better. I was in that stupid play you guys didn't bother to see. Do you even remember the name of it? That's what I thought. So what? What if I got drunk on the one night you happened to stop by? So fucking what?
Matt: Hey, hey, watch your language around Scottie.
Alex: I don't care.
Matt: Anyway, listen, it's nice to see you. Welcome home. Here. You want some eggs?
Alex: I can't believe that. What? Oh, my God.
Matt: Hey, Alex?
Alex: What'd she say?
Matt: Can I talk to you for a minute?
Alex: Uh. The pool's really dirty. Wait, what?
Matt: Hey, I really need to talk to you.
Alex: She didn't say... she didn't say anything to me. Oh, my God, I can't believe she... Hey, uh, yeah, yeah, I gotta go. Okay, I'll see you later. What day does the pool guy come?
Matt: He comes... You know, I don't know when he comes.
Alex: Awesome. Sid's coming over.
Matt: Who's Sid?
Alex: A really good friend from Punahou. We were in school together for years.
Matt: Oh. Okay.
Alex: He wants to be here for me with all this shit happening.
Matt: Do I know his parents?
Alex: Nope. He might stay over too. Is that cool?
Scottie: Hey, Alex, over here.
Alex: What the fuck? Get out of my underwear, you freak.
Matt: No. Okay, no, no, no.
Scottie: Don't I look divine?
Matt: Back inside. Put on a swimsuit.
Alex: Real good job you're doing.
Matt: That's part of why I brought you here. You have to help me. I don't know what to do with her.
Alex: Maybe if you spent more time with her, she wouldn't act like such a complete spaz. Get her out of town. Go camp on Kauai. That's what Mom used to do with me whenever I was losing it.
Matt: Hey, listen. No, listen. Listen to me. Your mother's not well.
Alex: Yeah, obviously.
Matt: No. They just told me she's not gonna wake up. We know for sure now. The doctors are gonna stop caring for her. Your mother wanted it this way. She has this...she has this will, see, that says that we have to do it this way. We both do. You understand what I'm saying? That's why I got you. Honey, we're letting her go.
Alex: Why did you have to tell me in the goddamn pool?
Matt: Alex. Alex.
Alex: What? What do you want?
Matt: I just found out yesterday. We have to go through this thing together, you and Scottie and me. And I have to go around and tell people what's happening. Family and a few close friends. Sometimes I'm gonna need you to come with me. Sometimes I need you to watch Scottie.
Alex: You want me to go around with you and tell people that Mom's gonna die? What's the point of that? Breaking the news, watching them cry, dealing with their emotions? How depressing is that gonna be? Just call them.
Matt: Alex, nobody wants to do any of this. But we have to tell your grandpa and Tutu and a few friends. They have the right to know, and they have the right to say goodbye.
Alex: I don't wanna talk about Mom with anyone.
Matt: Look, whatever you two fought about over Christmas, you have to drop it. Grow up. You love your mother, your mother loves you.
Alex: I can't drop it.
Matt: You have to.
Alex: You really don't have a clue, do you? Dad... Dad, mom was cheating on you. That is what we fought about. When I was home at Christmas, I caught her with a guy. It made me sick to see her near you. I went back to school thinking that that was it, that I was just done with her. I was gonna call and tell you everything and...and then the accident happened and... I was waiting until she woke up, I guess. You didn't even suspect, right? Right? It disgusted me too. You're always so busy.
Matt: "Caught her with a guy" what does that mean?
Alex: I was on my way to swim in the Black Point pool with Brandy and suddenly I see Mom and some douche bag walking into a house. His house, I guess.
Matt: Just some guy, it could be anybody.
Alex: No, he had his hand on her ass. It was gross.
Matt: Then what?
Alex: Then nothing. Then they went into the house. A few days later, I told her I knew what she was doing.
Alex: And first, she acted like she had no idea what I was talking about. Like I'm fucking blind. And then she got, like, super mad and yelled and denied it. That was when I decided that I didn't want anything more to do with her.
Matt: Who is he?
Alex: I don't know, some guy.
Matt: What's he look like?
Alex: Dark hair.
Matt: Watch your sister.
