From the immediate beginning, the show has commanded our respect. Eddie's eulogy had us laughing and crying right alongside the attendees, and watching him choke out his final and powerful line, "John, you say everything happens for a reason. I can't find a reason for this" had us all done for.
Like most of the emotional moments resulting from this show, it was hard differentiating whether the cause was heartwarming or saddening. Seeing Rome and Eddie step in for John was some "bro-code" magic. Magic that brought the welling of tears to eyes, while Sophie's sudden revelation that her father hadn't forgotten her was the last and final straw to break the tearful barrier.
John: Friendship is when you don't care when your buddy throws up in your car when you're taking him back from chemo. Gary: And yet he keeps mentioning it. John: Friendship is believing that your friend will one day make his movie. Rome: What do you think I'm doing? John: Friendship is holding a friend's hand when she loses her restaurant even though you know she's going to open up a better one. It's the person that you trust with your wallet, and your keys, and your wife, and your kids and it's being able to have the hard conversations and willing to listen. It's a million little things. Everyone: A million little things. John: A million little things.
