Eric Sanborn: So, it's you. I'm coming back to you.
Melinda Gordon: Don't fight it, Eric. Just don't.
Eric Sanborn: But I heard Jim say you didn't want a child. Not yet.
Melinda Gordon: I didn't think I was ready, but if this is supposed to happen then I'll get ready.
Eric Sanborn: How can you be like that?
Melinda Gordon: Like what?
Eric Sanborn: So generous with yourself.
Melinda Gordon: I know how important it is for you to move on; to never have to live another life. So, Jim and I are going to do the right thing by you, Eric.
Eric Sanborn: I heard everything you and Jim said last night.
Melinda Gordon: So?
Eric Sanborn: I haven't had a conversation like that in any of my lifetimes. I've never listened to anyone the way you guys listen to each other. I've never cared what anyone wanted. I saw how much he wanted to have that kid and I saw how scared you were by it. But, you were willing to do it. Not for you. For me. So, I'm not going to fight. I'm not gonna do anything again. I'll come back again. I'll do it for you. Maybe I'll get it right this time. You'll help me.
Melinda Gordon: We will help you, Eric. We both will.
Melinda Gordon: I don't know if you're gonna remember any of this when you're born, but we're gonna take really good care of you. And, we'll teach you the best that we can. And we'll try to make sure that this is your last time around.
Eric Sanborn: I know you will.
Eric Sanborn: [after seeing the light] I see it. I see the light.
Melinda Gordon: You've seen it before.
Eric Sanborn: [getting choked up] It's beautiful. I feel like it wants me to come. I don't understand. I don't feel like anything is holding me back.
Melinda Gordon: What does that mean?
Eric Sanborn: [crying] I see my father. I see my dad. I see all my dads. They want me to come.
[turns to Melinda after a moment]
Eric Sanborn: [pause] I'll stay. I'll go through another life
Eric Sanborn: For you. If that's what you want. I'll do that.
Melinda Gordon: I know.
[begins to cry softly]
Melinda Gordon: And that's why you can go.
Professor Rick Payne: You know what? I think I'm a little tired of you using me just for my brain.
Melinda Gordon: Ugh, if only that were possible, but so much of your mouth comes with it.
Delia Banks: You're going to think I'm crazy.
Melinda Gordon: You would be surprised at my crazy threshold.
Eric Sanborn: Sounds crazy.
Melinda Gordon: Eric, you're dead and yet you're standing here talking to me. Let's get a grip on what's crazy.
Professor Rick Payne: [to Melinda about Eric] Come on, this guy had multiple personality disorder when he was alive and now he's dead, so he's using his alter-egos to haunt you. That's it, case closed. This ghost thing is easy once you get the hang of it, I don't even know why you guys make such a big deal about it.
Jim Clancy: [after Melinda's pregnancy test is negative] I'm not sure how I feel.
Melinda Gordon: Me neither.
Jim Clancy: I do know one thing.
Melinda Gordon: What?
Jim Clancy: I'm ready. No matter what's ahead for us. I'm ready to go down any road with you. Go through any door. I know that now, more than I ever did.
Melinda Gordon: That's all I need.
Brenda Sanborn: [about Eric] You know, my brother was a selfish bastard. I gave up everything for him. My mom died, I raised him. My dad died, I skipped college so he wouldn't have to go into foster care. This store, this is his dream, not mine, but I've put everything I had into it to make it work, and he could care less. That's who he was.
Melinda Gordon: So why do you keep doing it?
Brenda Sanborn: Because he was my brother.
