Dog Walker God starts taking the balls from Joan, explaining, "The bridge is life. The boxes hold your feelings -- your love, your joy, your pain, your loss. Everyone is crossing a bridge with more weight than they can bear. So…you juggle." Warren Zevon's song "Keep Me in Your Heart" (as performed by Jennifer Warnes and Jorge Calderón on the Zevon tribute album Enjoy Every Sandwich) begins playing. "Shadows are falling and I'm running out of breath / Keep me in your heart for awhile / If I leave you it doesn't mean I love you any less / Keep me in your heart for awhile…" Dog Walker God starts juggling the balls, showing off a little by throwing in a trick move or two. Frink: "God needs a punch in the head." I shush him. Joan watches, until he says, "Catch." He throws her a ball, then another, then the last. Joan starts juggling; not quite as gracefully and confidently as he did, but without goofing it up, either. She's amazed at her ability and keeps tossing the balls higher and higher as Dog Walker God smiles and walks off. "When you get up in the morning and you see that crazy sun / Keep me in your heart for awhile…" Kevin, who likely has no clue about what happened, drives up and sees Joan managing to keep all the balls moving. From inside his car, he remarks, "All right! You got it." Joan allows herself to focus on catching the ball that's coming at her, and not to worry about the others. Luke, Grace, Adam, and Friedman all watch her, fascinated that Joan's managing this juggling act. Helen and Will look out the window to see what the kids are up to, and they smile when they see what Joan's managing to do. The camera shot switches to an overhead one, as Joan throws the balls higher and higher, and the balls soar closer and closer to the camera until finally one bright blue ball blots her out. "Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo / Keep me in your heart for awhile / Sha-la-la-la-la-la-la-li-li-lo / Keep me in your heart for awhile."
