There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
Lexie: You have to stop. You gotta stop talking to me and checking on me and talking to my boyfriend. I love you, and I'm always gonna love you, but I don't want to love you. I want to be happy, and Jackson makes me happy. And if you keep pulling at me, I'll come back to you. Mark: You're right, I'm sorry. Lexie: You got what you wanted you wanted a family so please just let me have what I wanted. Mark: I said you're right. I told Avery I was letting you go. Did he tell you that part? Lexie: Yes, it's paternalistic and weird. Mark: I'm letting you go, Lexie. That means you've got to walk away.
