We see a hand on the wheel of a wheelchair. It taps idly, and the camera moves up to show us Will sitting in Kevin's chair, next to him in the hospital. Kevin's got his clothes back on. He says, "I heard they offered you a job?" Will wonders how he heard that. Kevin reminds him that he works for the newspaper. Will might want to file that away for future reference. Kevin says, "Some kind of sheriff?" Will pulls a voice right out of Gunsmoke and claims, "Always wanted to be a sheriff." Kevin shakes his head and says, "You are so full of it." Will begs his pardon. Kevin says he remembers when Will loved his job and regaled him regularly with tales of police work and excitement. Will shrugs that off: "Kids are pretty easy to impress." Kevin: "The stories changed, Dad, not me." Will sighs and mentions the points in favour of the position: it's a good job, and they can stay in Arcadia and set down roots. Kevin tells him, "Dad, if I find out you took this job because of me, I'll be really mad at you." Will asks, "How is this about you?" Kevin replies, "My intention is to be as much a man as you are. I can't do that if you keep me back, like a child." Will leans forward and says, "Being a man means making decisions based on a lot of different needs, few of which are your own. Family comes first." Kevin says, "I need you to make decisions as though I was standing in front of you, on my own two legs...please...don't take the job -- not for me." Will gets up and kisses him on the forehead, telling him he'll see him when he can come home.
