This Is Us Season 6 Episode 15: "Miguel" Quotes
Miguel's son: What are you doing here?
Kevin: Look, man, I don't pretend to know about your relationship with Miguel. I assume he wasn't the greatest father growing up. I don't know. I don't talk to him about it, or about him, really. But Miguel might not have much time left. The doctors are concerned about heart failure. Take it from me, man, you don't want him to die with things unfinished between you.
Miguel: I have failed at everything else in my life. My parents. Shelley. I haven't seen my son in five years. But I made a vow.
Kate: We're not doubting your love for her -
Miguel: She wakes up every morning at 6:45 and I am the first thing she sees. It grounds her. It grounds me. I won't leave her side.
Kate: As long as you're happy.
Kevin: What? Are you really doing this? You were Dad's best friend.
Miguel: We never talk about him. Sometimes I wonder what he'd think of all this.
Rebecca: I wonder too. All the time I've spent thinking about this.
Rebecca: I think he'd want what's best for us, his two favorite people who he once left alone in a bar until they became friends.
Rebecca, I spent the last 8 years wondering if I made the right decision. I have replayed it over and over in my head, and I had to leave. I never felt like I belonged. Puerto Rico or America, English or Spanish. I never felt at home anywhere. If I'm being honest, the first time I ever felt homesick in my life was when I left you on that porch.
Miguel: I'm gonna get some Tylenol? You gonna be okay?
Rebecca: Uh huh.
Randall: You doing okay, Mom?
Rebecca: I'm hanging in there.
Kevin: She's more than hanging in there. She was this close to going on that nature walk.
Rebecca: Where'd Miguel go?
Beatriz: Mijo. He died proud of you. He would want you to know that.
Miguel: Yeah. I just wish we had more time.
Jack: Why don't you two get to know each other? Talk amongst each other.
Rebecca: Amongst? He's never used that word.
Man: You speak Spanish?
Miguel: Yes. I do.
Man: I won't pretend it isn't helpful. Many of the new guys barely speak a word of English. You're hired. When you can you start?
Miguel: Right away. Oh, and it's Miguel. Miguel Rivas. I sent in two resumes, but Miguel's never got any response.
Miguel: Want to see a game. No matter where you see it.
Man: Son. Where you sit is all that matters.
I told you we'd make it. From a little seed to our first bloom. One day at a time.
