When something like this happens… what’s happening to my grandmother… you don’t really listen to logic, to what you’re supposed to do. You listen to your heart. And my heart told me to call you. Because you were the one person in the world that I really wanted to talk to. Max, I’ve been thinking something… and I’m really not gonna be able to get it out of my head unless I just say it. I’m really sorry for asking you this…
Dear Max, “What’s so great about normal?" Do you remember when you asked me that? Back then, the answer was, "Nothing." Because of you, Max. Because of how much you love me. Now, though, the answer is different. Normal is something I need, and that’s why I have to leave. I have to figure out what my life means… away from Roswell and away from you. Don’t hate me for doing this. I love you more than you can ever know.
Today I had a little history lesson, and here’s the thing I owe more to you than I can imagine. To Liz, Alex, Valenti, to some old guy named Hal who lives in Tampa and plays shuffleboard. I never realized it… so here it is.
You know, I think you and I have something in common. I never really got to know my father very well either. He was a sheriff around here about 40 years ago. And he had this theory, you know, about aliens… that they were real. Sounds awfully silly, doesn’t it? That’s what everybody thought. But my father was a… He was a very stubborn man. And he wouldn’t let it go. He believed. And he lost his job over it. And, uh, he lost his family over it. Now, I would hate to see that happen to any other family in this town, wouldn’t you? Now, there’s one more thing that you and I have in common. We’ve both seen things recently… that have made us start to wonder… made us question ourselves, our beliefs. And I think… that if we share those things with each other… we’re both gonna feel a little bit safer.“
“Oh, I am what I am. I’ll do what I want, but I can’t hide. And I won’t go, I won’t sleep. I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me. And I won’t leave, I can’t hide. I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me.”
