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.
James Roday best known for Psych stars as Gary on A Million Little Things. Gary has his own personal health issues that he may or may not be struggling with, but now he has to deal with the loss of his close friend, too.
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.
Maggie: Maybe he just lost sight of the horizon. I was watching this documentary on JFK Jr. You remember when his plane went down? ... Anyway, Kennedy was a novice pilot. He was flying at night, and the clouds came in, and his instruments were telling him which way was up, but he didn't trust them. The truth was right in front of him, and he couldn't see it. He lost sight of the horizon and nosedived, and by the time he realized what was happening, it was too late, and he couldn't pull up. Gary: What does this have to do-- Maggie: That's depression. Now maybe he wasn't depressed; maybe something else was going on. People keep secrets from loved ones, and sometimes, you don't even know they have these secrets until an event like this happens.
