What, there's more? Lex is at the hospital. He's watching Dr. Glasses talk to some other lady in the hall. This place is so badly lit. Dr. Glasses turns from the conversation and sees Lex. Lex says what he did was inexcusable, and that he should have trusted her. She says it's too late. Lex launches into one of his sob stories about how he was raised to mistrust and how daddy warped him. Dr. Glasses is sorry Lex grew up that way, but still. Lex goes on, not even hearing her. He says that when his mom died, he built a wall around his heart. That wall grew taller and more fortified. Soon, he found himself in court defending himself against a giant anus judge and running like hell until he was comfortably numb. And then he built a fortress around her heart, encircled her in trenches and barbed wire. No, wait, it wasn't Roger Waters or Sting at all. These are Lex's totally original and compelling ideas and thoughts. I'm sorry I interrupted. Lex says that his heart became impenetrable, but that he wants to tear down the wall and has no idea how to do it. He wants to know what love is. He wants you to show him. Let's talk about love. Dr. Glasses sighs, turns, and suddenly looks a little drugged up. "Lex," she says. Lex says he's never asked anyone for help, but that he's asking for it now. Help him if you can, he's going down. And he does appreciate you being round. "I don't want to become my father," Lex says. Dr. Glasses slowly takes his hand and leads him down the hall. It's sweet even despite all the clichés. They go down the hall together as a very sad song by Michael Andrews featuring Gary Jules from Donnie Darko soundtrack begins to play. It has the same melody as the start of "Gone Away" by The Offspring.
