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.
PJ: You OK? Rome: Yeah, no, I don't know. PJ: I don't know if this is helpful but when we were all out there and the minister was reading that prayer, the ashes to ashes dust to dust stuff, I was reminded of something I read once, that nothing lasts forever. That people we love sometimes leave our lives, but what stays is how they forever changed us. Rome: You're quoting my screenplay to me? PJ: Maybe.
