Ryan: My dad died when I was 11, and my mom remarried half a year later to a guy who was OK to her but thought corporal punishment was the best way to handle a wild kid who was pissed as hell about losing his dad.
Sarah: Oh Ryan, I am so sorry.
Ryan: No, no, no. I don't need pity. I'm just telling you the reason why I left town as quick and I did and never looked back. Never will.
Sarah: Ryan, you don't have to give me an explanation on any of that.
Ryan: Well, I want to give you the answers to questions you keep asking. So. Not everybody has a family like yours, and, ah, I know that I messed up. I know that I did some things that scared you the last time that I got back, and it should have, she's your daughter and I love her. I love her so much, and I'm working so hard to get better. I want to be worthy of your family. I want to be worthy of her. And, I know that you think we're rushing into this too fast, but I gotta tell ya, you grow up real fast on your own, you grow up fast in the military. I know what I want, and I want us to start our lives together.
