(CW) "PHILIP!!!" (PW, very woozy) "Wh.. what happened?..." (CW, crying still, but with a smile) "There was a huge blast, but I... got you away from it. I'll explain later." [The flames from the wildfire are still going in the background] (PW) "I... don't know if I'm gonna make it..." (CW) "You're gonna be okay! Look, help is coming right now!" (ND, in a Medivac 'copter) "THERE THEY ARE!" [close-up of the pair] (PW) "Well, if something... happens, I just want to tell you this... (CW, still crying and smiling) "Okay..." (PW, reaching up, touching her cheek with the back of his hand) "...I love you, Cassie." (CW, leaning down and kissing him) "I love you, Philip."
