[last lines]

Dr. Cornelia Wilbur: In accepting Peggy into her arms, Sybil began the deepest healing of her selves. In embracing Peggy, she embraced herself. In calming her, she was calming her own heart. As I watched her becoming mother to herself, I felt my own long motherhood ending. I released what I had held so long. I celebrated the beginning of her emancipation. I let go. Our work together lasted eleven years. Today, Sybil lives peacefully in a small college town where she's a professor of art. There's not enough time in the day for her to do everything she wants, but that time in every sense, is her own. She tells me she's happy. I know she's free.

Hattie: [snatches one of Sybil's crayons away] Do you think life is all sunshine, singing and colors when you grow up? I should say not. You are bad. You are spoiled rotten. You better learn quick.

Grandma Dorsett: [after hearing a loud thud] Hattie, is Sybil alright?

Hattie: Just one of her falls, Grandma!

[quietly to herself]

Hattie: Oh, Grandma... what big ears you have.

Hattie: [looking at Sybil's drawing] Well whoever heard of a purple chicken with green feet? Can you imagine what kind of eggs that might lay? Imagine setting a plate of those in front of your grandfather some fine Sabbath morning! ARMAGEDDON!

Dr. Cornelia Wilbur: [Hugging Sybil] Once a long time ago when I was a little girl in Montana, I was laying in the grass looking at the ants. And the sun was warm on my back and the grass was deep and soft and the insects were buzzing... everything was drowsy. Then all of a sudden, I saw this one ant who was struggling to pick up this grain of sand that was far too heavy to carry alone. And he struggled. And pretty soon, ANOTHER ant came along and helped the first ant and together they carried it away! Well, I got so excited that I hollared to my mother and she came out and plopped down in the grass beside me and she said, now isn't that miraculous how much two creatures can accomplish together... when they care about each other.

Richard J. Loomis: Hey, Sybil Dorsett! Wanna pet my horse? Come on , ma'am now, have no fear or trepidation. We've fallen on hard times, him and me, since we was the finest ropin' team in all the west, and it kinda looks like it's gonna be the dog food factory unless some kind soul believes in us enough to take a ride. How about you?

Richard J. Loomis: Yeah, love and hate; peanut butter and jelly. I used to hate my late wife, who I speak of with a certain irony so as to keep total collapse at a distance.

[pause]

Sybil Dorsett: I... wish you wouldn't mock yourself.

Richard J. Loomis: You wanna hear about it?

[pause]

Richard J. Loomis: 'cause I'd like to tell you.

Sybil Dorsett: You would? I'd like to hear; I just didn't think I should ask.

[pause]

Richard J. Loomis: Beep, beep with the horn; choo, choo with the train; crash, crash with the car. 'All broke', as Matthew says when I drop a dish.
