Love knows no bounds, not even death.
Watch the original version of Ghost
Sam Wheat loved Molly Jensen more than anything in the world. He was a successful banker, with a bright future ahead of him. Molly was an artist and the love of his life. They were a perfect match in every way, building a beautiful life together.
Their love was the thing of fairy tales, something that most people could only dream of. They were so in love that nothing in the world could tear them apart. Or so they thought.
One day, everything changed. Sam was murdered, betrayed by his business partner Carl Bruner in a shady business deal. Sam was left to roam the earth as a powerless ghost, watching over Molly and seeking revenge on Carl for what he had done.
Chapter 1: Sam and Molly’s Love Story
Sam Wheat and Molly Jensen were two lovers who were deeply in love with each other. They had been together for three years and there was no end in sight. They spent their days working and their nights exploring the city together.
Sam was a banker, working for a prestigious firm in the heart of New York City. Molly was an artist, working from her studio apartment in the Village. They were both successful in their own right, but their combined passion for each other was what truly made them happy.
They had first met at a party, both of them admiring the artwork on the walls of the host’s home. They struck up a conversation, and it quickly became apparent that they shared a deep appreciation for art and culture.
From there, their love story blossomed. They spent their first date at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, wandering through the halls and admiring the paintings. They talked for hours about their favorite artists and what they loved about each piece.
As their relationship grew, so did their love. Sam would bring Molly flowers every Friday, and they would spend each weekend exploring a new part of the city. They were inseparable, and their love only grew stronger.
Sam proposed to Molly one spring day in Central Park. He had rented out a private gazebo and arranged for a string quartet to serenade them as he got down on one knee. Molly said yes, and they spent the rest of the day basking in the glow of their love.
Their wedding was a spectacle, with hundreds of guests in attendance. They exchanged vows in a small chapel in the countryside, surrounded by lush greenery and blooming flowers. Sam couldn’t believe how lucky he was to have found such a wonderful woman to spend his life with.
Their married life was filled with love and laughter, with Sam constantly surprising Molly with romantic gestures like breakfast in bed, surprise trips to Europe, and even a private concert with her favorite musician.
However, their happiness was short-lived. One night, Sam was working late at his office when he received a call from Carl, his business partner. Carl coaxed him into coming to the office to sign some papers, and when Sam arrived, he was attacked and killed by Carl’s goons.
As Sam’s lifeless body lay on the ground, he could only watch as Carl and his men stole money from the bank and left, leaving him to die. Sam felt his spirit leaving his body, and he knew he had to protect Molly from beyond the grave.
That was how Sam found himself trapped as a ghost, unable to communicate with the living and unsure of how to make things right. His love for Molly burned fiercely in his heart, and he was determined to protect her from those who would do her harm.
Chapter 2: Sam as a Ghost
Sam Wheat floats in the air, watching the devastation around him. The life he once knew is gone forever, and he feels lost and alone. He can’t comprehend what has happened to him, and his inability to communicate with the living only adds to his frustration.
As he tries to come to terms with his new existence, he sees Molly crying over his lifeless body. His heart aches as he watches her grieve for him. He tries to reach out to her, to comfort her, but his attempts are futile. He is nothing but a ghost now, and he can do nothing to ease her pain.
Sam watches as Carl Bruner, his former friend and business partner, covers up his murder. Carl appears to be genuinely upset by Sam’s death, but Sam knows the truth. He watched as Carl plotted against him, set him up to be killed, and then covered his tracks when the deed was done.
Sam’s anger boils over as he realizes the extent of Carl’s betrayal. He wants revenge, but he can’t achieve it in his current form. He is powerless to harm Carl or anyone else physically.
He roams the streets, floats through walls, and watches as life goes on without him. He feels like a shadow, a mere ghost of the man he once was.
One day, as he hovers near Molly watching her try to move on with her life, he hears a woman yelling on the street. He follows the sound and finds himself in the presence of Oda Mae Brown, a psychic medium who is a total fraud. She’s screaming at her clients and telling them to leave because she’s not in the mood to give them a fake reading.
Sam watches in amazement as Oda Mae suddenly stops yelling and looks straight at him. He is surprised that she can see him, as no one else has been able to. Oda Mae is equally shocked and scared, as this is the first time she’s ever seen a ghost.
Sam tries to communicate with her, but she can’t hear him. She’s too busy freaking out and trying to get away from him. However, he soon realizes that this is his chance to finally communicate with the living. He follows her back to her apartment, and after some convincing, she finally hears him.
“You’re a ghost!” she screams, looking at him in disbelief.
“Yes,” Sam confirms. “And I need your help.”
Oda Mae is skeptical. She’s never believed in ghosts, and she’s certainly never helped one before. But Sam begs and pleads with her to help him communicate with Molly and protect her from Carl’s schemes.
Over the next few days, Sam and Oda Mae work together to find a way to talk to Molly. Sam realizes that he can use Oda Mae as a conduit to communicate with the living. He convinces her to go to Molly’s apartment and act as a messenger between them.
At first, Molly is wary of Oda Mae. She has no reason to trust a fake psychic. But as Oda Mae relays Sam’s messages, Molly realizes that there may be something to this. She’s shocked and confused that Sam may be communicating with her from beyond the grave, but she can’t ignore the evidence in front of her.
Sam feels a glimmer of hope as he finally makes contact with Molly. With Oda Mae’s help, he’s able to tell her that he loves her and that he’s still with her in some way.
But as the days go on, Sam realizes that he’s trapped in this limbo between life and death. He can’t move on to the afterlife while Molly is still in danger. He vows to find a way to protect her, even if it means staying in his ghostly form forever.
Sam Wheat may be dead, but he’s not going down without a fight.
Chapter 3: Seeking Revenge
After discovering the truth behind his murder, Sam felt a burning desire to seek revenge against Carl. His love for Molly and his need to protect her fueled his determination to stop Carl and his goons from harming her. However, as a powerless spirit, Sam knew that he couldn’t do it alone.
That’s when he decided to seek the help of psychic Oda Mae Brown. She was a con artist posing as a medium, and Sam knew that she was his only hope to connect with the living world and take down Carl’s sinister plot. He had to convince her to take his request seriously.
On a chilly evening, Sam made his way to Oda Mae’s storefront. The windows were shut, and the curtains were drawn. Sam floated through the walls and made his way inside. The room was empty, except for Oda Mae, who was sitting at a small table, counting her money.
Sam could tell that Oda Mae was unbalanced, and he had to be careful with his approach. He didn’t want to scare her off or lose her trust. He waited for a moment, watching her as she finished counting her money before he slowly revealed himself to her.
“Whoa! Who are you? What are you doing here?” Oda Mae yelled out, jumping off her chair.
“I’m Sam Wheat. I’m dead, and I need your help,” Sam said, transparently floating in front of her.
“You’re a ghost,” Oda Mae said, taking a few steps back. “I don’t believe in ghosts.”
“I need you to help me communicate with Molly. She’s in danger,” Sam pleaded. He needed Oda Mae to believe him and understand the gravity of the situation.
“Okay, I’ll play along. So, how do I know you’re really Sam Wheat? And why should I help you?” Oda Mae asked, looking skeptical.
Sam thought for a moment before he responded, “I know that you’re not a real psychic. You’ve been deceiving people for years. I can help you become a real psychic, give you the real ability to speak to the dead, and maybe help you gain some sense of redemption.”
Oda Mae looked at him for a moment, taking in his offer before responding, “Okay, I’ll help, but I want proof that you’re really Sam Wheat. Can you tell me something only Sam would know?”
Sam thought for a moment before he said, “Okay. When Molly and I first met, she spilled a cup of coffee on me, and I had to change my shirt. I still have the shirt with the coffee stain on it.”
Oda Mae looked at him for a moment, and then her eyes widened in realization. “Oh my God, it’s really you. Okay, I’ll help you.”
Sam and Oda Mae sat down at the table and began to make plans. Sam explained to Oda Mae what had happened to him and what he needed her to do. Oda Mae was scared but determined to help. She was intrigued by the possibility of communicating with the dead and finding redemption for her life of deceit.
Sam communicated with Oda Mae through telepathy, and he helped her hone her newly found psychic abilities. With Sam’s guidance, Oda Mae was able to connect with Molly and warn her of the danger she was in. Molly was skeptical at first, but soon realized that Sam was communicating through Oda Mae.
As they worked together to get to the bottom of Carl’s plan, Oda Mae started to realize that her gift was real. She began to gain a sense of purpose and a newfound respect for her abilities. Sam was happy to see that he was not only able to protect Molly but also able to help Oda Mae find her true calling.
Sam and Oda Mae’s plan was to gather evidence against Carl and his goons and turn it over to the police. They had to be careful, as Carl was watching Molly’s every move. Sam was able to use his ghostly powers to move objects and create disturbances to distract Carl and his men while Oda Mae worked behind the scenes.
As they worked, Sam and Oda Mae grew closer. They shared a bond over their shared mission to protect Molly and take down Carl. Sam was happy to have found a friend in Oda Mae, someone who understood him and his predicament. Oda Mae was happy to have found a purpose, to know that she could make a real difference in people’s lives.
Their plan came to a head when Carl was caught red-handed. He was arrested, and the evidence Sam and Oda Mae had collected was enough to put him away for a long time. Molly was safe, and Sam was able to move on, knowing that he had done everything in his power to protect her.
As Sam prepared to leave the living world, he turned to Oda Mae and thanked her for her help. In turn, Oda Mae thanked Sam for showing her the truth and helping her find her true calling. Together, they had not only protected Molly but also helped each other find meaning and purpose in their lives.
Chapter 4: Oda Mae Brown
Sam Wheat was a ghost, and he was stuck in the physical world, unable to communicate with his beloved Molly. He needed help, and he knew just the person to turn to. Oda Mae Brown was a fake psychic, but she was the only one who could hear and see him.
Sam had to convince Oda Mae Brown that he was a ghost, and he could do that by performing a few ghostly stunts. He pushed a vase off a table, made the lights flicker, and caused the wind to blow. Oda Mae Brown was startled by the sudden change in the atmosphere, and when she saw the vase flying off the table, she was convinced that Sam was indeed a ghost.
“Who are you?” she asked, looking around the room, trying to spot the ghost.
“I’m Sam, Sam Wheat. I need your help,” Sam responded, his voice echoing in the room.
“What do you want from me?” Oda Mae Brown asked, looking around the room with a mixture of curiosity and fear.
“I need to communicate with my girlfriend, Molly. I need to warn her about her safety,” Sam said, appearing in front of her, hoping she could see him.
Oda Mae Brown was surprised to see Sam, but she quickly composed herself. “I can’t help you, I’m not a real psychic. I just pretend to be one,” she said, taking a step back.
“You’re the only one who can hear me. I have a message for Molly, please help me,” Sam pleaded, floating towards her.
Oda Mae Brown looked at Sam, and she could see the desperation in his eyes. She knew that she had to help him, but she didn’t know how. She was just a con artist, and she had never communicated with a ghost before.
“I’ll try to help you, but I don’t know how to communicate with a ghost,” Oda Mae said, looking at Sam.
Sam knew that Oda Mae was his only chance, and he had to convince her to help him. He told her about his murder, about Carl’s betrayal, and about his undying love for Molly. He explained everything in detail, hoping that Oda Mae would understand the gravity of the situation.
“You have to help me, Oda Mae. You’re the only one who can save Molly,” Sam pleaded, looking at her.
Oda Mae was moved by Sam’s story, and she knew that he was telling the truth. She could feel his pain and his longing for Molly. She decided to help him, even though she didn’t know how.
“How can I communicate with Molly? I don’t know where she is,” Oda Mae asked.
“She’s an artist, she has a studio downtown. I’ll take you there,” Sam said, floating towards the door.
Oda Mae followed Sam, feeling a little bit scared and excited at the same time. She had never communicated with a ghost before, and she didn’t know what to expect.
They arrived at Molly’s studio, and Oda Mae was surprised to see how beautiful it was. She looked around the room, trying to spot Molly.
“Where is she?” Oda Mae asked, looking at Sam.
“She’s coming. Just wait,” Sam said, hovering near the ceiling.
Oda Mae was nervous, and she didn’t know how to communicate with Molly. She didn’t want to scare her or make her think she was crazy.
Suddenly, Molly walked in, looking beautiful as ever. Oda Mae was struck by her beauty and her calm demeanor.
“Molly, it’s me, Sam. I’m a ghost, and I need you to listen to me,” Sam said, appearing in front of Molly.
Molly was surprised to see Sam, but she could see the desperation in his eyes. She knew that he was telling the truth.
“Sam, I can’t hear you. I don’t know what you want,” Molly said, looking at Sam’s ghostly figure.
“I’ll make her hear me,” Sam said, trying to touch Molly’s arm.
Molly felt a sudden chill in the air, and she turned around, feeling like someone was behind her. She could see Sam’s ghostly figure, and she knew that he was trying to communicate with her.
“Sam? Is that you?” Molly said, looking around the room.
“Yes, it’s me. I’m a ghost, and I need you to listen to me. You’re in danger, Molly. Carl is planning to harm you,” Sam said, appearing in front of Molly.
Molly was shocked to hear that, and she knew that Sam was telling the truth. She could feel the fear in his voice and the urgency in his words.
“What can I do? How can I protect myself?” Molly said, looking at Sam.
“You have to leave your apartment. Go someplace safe. Oda Mae will help you,” Sam said, disappearing.
Molly was confused, but she knew that she had to trust Sam. She packed her bag and left her apartment, hoping that she would be safe.
Oda Mae Brown had done what she could to help Sam, and now it was up to Molly to take care of herself. Sam knew that he had to protect Molly from Carl and his goons, and he would do anything to keep her safe.
Chapter 5: The Unveiling of Carl’s Plan
The realization that Carl was behind his death struck Sam like a lightning bolt. He was livid but helpless as a ghost. However, his anger fueled his need for revenge, and he turned to Oda Mae Brown, the psychic, for help.
Sam needed Oda Mae to communicate with Molly to warn her about Carl’s treachery. Oda Mae had initially resisted helping him, thinking that the voices she heard were just her imagination. However, when Sam spoke through her, she was shocked and decided to help him.
Sam and Oda Mae met at her apartment to discuss the situation. Sam explained to her the plan that Carl had been hatching before his murder. Carl had taken money from the bank where Sam worked, and he had convinced Sam to allow him to use his computer password to make the transfer. Carl had promised Sam that they would both make a fortune from the deal, but it was all a lie.
After the transfer was complete, Carl had killed Sam to keep him from exposing him. Now, with Sam’s help, Oda Mae realized that Carl’s plans were far from over. Carl was still after the money he had transferred, and he was planning to kill Molly to keep her from exposing him.
Sam and Oda Mae knew they had to act fast to protect Molly. They decided to use Oda Mae’s psychic scam to gain access to Carl’s office and get the evidence they needed to expose him.
Oda Mae posed as a psychic and visited Carl’s office, claiming to be able to communicate with the dead. Carl fell for her scam and showed her to his private office, where Sam was waiting. When Carl left the room, Sam used his ghostly powers to locate the evidence they needed to expose Carl’s plan.
Sam found a file hidden in Carl’s safe that contained all the evidence they needed to prove that Carl had embezzled the money from Sam’s bank. The file also revealed Carl’s plan to kill Molly to keep her from exposing him.
Sam realized that they needed more than just evidence to take Carl down. They needed him to confess to his crimes. Sam and Oda Mae hatched a plan to get Carl to confess.
They arranged a meeting with Carl in a secluded location. When Carl arrived, Sam used his ghostly powers to create a haunting atmosphere that made Carl feel uneasy. Sam then started to speak to Carl through Oda Mae’s body. Carl was shocked to hear Sam’s voice, and he thought that he was going insane.
Sam then revealed to Carl that he knew about his plan to kill Molly. Carl became agitated and started to deny his involvement. However, Sam’s ghostly presence was too much for him to take. Carl finally broke down and confessed to his crimes, including the plan to kill Molly.
Sam and Oda Mae had succeeded in exposing Carl’s plan and getting him to confess to his crimes. They had saved Molly’s life and made sure that Carl would pay for his treachery.
As Sam watched over Molly from the afterlife, he realized that his love for her was still as strong as ever. He knew that their love was eternal, and he would always be with her in some way.
Chapter 6: The Final Battle
Sam and Carl stood facing each other in the deserted alley, each sizing up the other. Carl had a smug look on his face, and Sam could see the cold, calculated gaze in his eyes. He knew that this guy was capable of anything.
“You can’t do anything to me, Sam,” Carl said, sneering. “You’re just a ghost.”
Sam gritted his teeth, feeling the anger boiling inside him. He hated the fact that he couldn’t do anything physically to Carl.
“You’ll pay for what you did, Carl,” he growled.
Carl simply laughed, mockingly, and approached Sam. Sam braced himself, ready for the worst, but instead, Carl walked right through him, as if he was made of air.
Sam could feel the chill of Carl’s form as he passed through him. It was a strange sensation, and he shuddered involuntarily.
But Sam was not one to give up easily. He had a plan, and it was time to put it into action. He gathered all his energy and focused on his ghostly powers.
Suddenly, a gust of wind blew up, and Carl stumbled, nearly falling. Sam used this moment to his advantage and hit Carl hard, with all his ghostly strength. Carl went flying, crashing into a nearby dumpster with a loud thud.
Sam could see the shock on Carl’s face as he realized that Sam could indeed hurt him, in his ghostly form. He smirked, feeling a sense of satisfaction.
But Carl was not one to give up easily either. He got up, dusting himself off, and pulled out a gun. Sam knew that he had to act fast.
He darted around, trying to confuse Carl. He knew that Carl couldn’t see him, so he used this to his advantage. He kept on darting around, then hit Carl from behind with all his energy, causing him to drop his gun.
“Is that all you’ve got, Sam?” Carl sneered, as he picked up his gun.
Sam knew that he couldn’t keep this up forever. He needed help. He called out to Oda Mae, shouting her name out loud.
To his relief, he heard Oda Mae’s voice in his head. He explained the situation to her and asked for help.
“Okay, Sam. I’ll be right there,” Oda Mae said, sounding determined.
Sam knew that he had to keep Carl occupied until Oda Mae arrived. He continued to dodge and distract Carl and managed to knock the gun out of his hand once again.
Carl was getting angrier by the minute. Sam could see the fury building up in his eyes as he lunged at him.
But just then, Oda Mae arrived with a group of police officers. Sam breathed a sigh of relief as he watched Oda Mae approach Carl and distract him.
The police officers quickly surrounded Carl and apprehended him. Sam watched as Carl was led away, finally getting the justice he deserved.
Sam knew that it was time for him to leave, but he couldn’t bear to leave Molly behind. He watched her, as she stood at the edge of the alley, waiting for him.
He approached her, but she couldn’t see him. He felt a pang of sadness, knowing that she would never know how much he loved her.
“Take care of her,” he whispered to Oda Mae before disappearing into the afterlife.
Oda Mae watched as Sam disappeared, feeling a sense of sadness and loss. She knew that he had done everything he could to protect Molly, and now it was up to her to keep Molly safe.
As Molly turned around, tears streaming down her face, Oda Mae reached out to comfort her.
“It’s okay, honey. Everything’s going to be alright,” she said, as she guided Molly out of the alley and into the light of day.
Sam watched them, from a distance, feeling a sense of peace knowing that the woman he loved was safe with his friend Oda Mae. He knew that their love was eternal, and that he would always be with her, in some way.
Chapter 7: The Afterlife
Sam Wheat had finally completed his mission on earth. He had avenged his death, protected the love of his life, Molly, and uncovered the truth behind his murder. He had to accept that he was dead and wasn’t able to come back to the living. Nevertheless, Sam was not ready to let go of Molly just yet. He would always be there for her, even if only as a ghost.
As he watched over Molly, he realized that she was in pain. She had lost the love of her life and had to move on without him. During his time on earth, he had learned that there was an afterlife, and he wanted to explore it. Sam’s curiosity led him to the other side, and he was surprised at what he found.
As he traveled further into the afterlife, he noticed that it had a certain beauty that was unique from earth. He saw that he could interact with other ghosts and communicate with them in ways he never thought possible. They were all spirits with different stories, desires and reasons to stay there. Sam encountered some ghosts who were sad and lonely, others who were content, and some who were still holding onto their past lives.
One day, while exploring, Sam came across a group of spirits who were playing music, telling stories, and dancing around. He looked at them in awe and asked if he could join them. They welcomed him with open arms and made him feel like he belonged. He realized that these were the spirits of lost souls who had come together to find solace.
Sam felt happy for the first time since his death. He felt like he had found a new family in the afterlife, a family that understood his struggle and pain. He played music with them and shared stories of his past life, even though he knew he could never go back.
As time passed though, Sam’s thoughts eventually went back to Molly. He wondered how she was doing, if she was missing him, and if she had moved on. One day, he decided to take a chance and visit her.
As he reached Molly’s apartment, he saw that she was staring out of the window, tears streaming down her face. He could feel her heartbreak deep inside. Sam knew he had to do something to comfort her.
Using his ghostly powers, he played their favorite song on the radio. As Molly heard the song, she was overwhelmed with emotion. Sam began to dance invisibly with her, and she felt as if he were right there with her. She closed her eyes and could feel his touch. It was a moment that she would never forget.
As the song ended, Sam whispered in her ear, “I will always be with you, Molly. You are not alone.” Molly was uncertain if it was just her imagination or if it was Sam. She looked around but could see nothing. She smiled, thinking about Sam’s love for her, and she knew that he was never far away.
From that moment on, Sam visited Molly every day, bringing peace and comfort to her. He watched over her as she healed and eventually moved on, but he never left her side. He was her guardian angel, always there for her when she needed him.
Sam had found a new purpose in the afterlife. He was no longer just a vengeful ghost seeking revenge. He was now a protector, a comforter, and a loving spirit watching over the woman he loved. With his new family of lost souls and the love of his life, Sam knew that he had found his forever home. Even in death, love perseveres, and this was the greatest lesson that Sam had learned.

The cluttered and cramped shop is filled with all sorts of mystic paraphernalia, from dreamcatchers to spell books. Oda Mae Brown, a middle-aged African American woman, sits behind her desk, reviewing her “clients’ files” – pieces of paper with their personal details written on them.
A soft knock is heard at the door. Oda Mae looks up and sees Sam in his ghostly form, hovering over the floor. She rubs her eyes in disbelief and then looks again. Sam is still there.
Oh my Lord! You’re still here!
(invisible to everyone except Oda Mae)
I need your help, Oda Mae.
(whispering to herself)
I must be going crazy.
I’m not crazy, Oda Mae. I’m a ghost.
A ghost? You mean like Casper?
No, I mean like myself. And I need your help to communicate with Molly.
Oda Mae looks at him incredulously, then shakes her head.
(whispering to herself)
I must be dreaming.
Sam floats closer to her, trying to convince her.
Please, Oda Mae. I’m begging you. Molly is in danger, and I need to warn her.
Oda Mae’s expression softens as she sees the desperation in Sam’s eyes.
Okay, I’ll try.
Sam smiles gratefully, knowing that Oda Mae is his only hope of communicating with the living.
Thank you, Oda Mae.
(shaking her head)
I must be out of my mind.
She gets up from her desk and walks over to the door, unlocking it and letting Sam out.
I can’t believe I’m doing this.

SAM: This is it. Are you ready, Oda Mae?
ODA MAE: (nervously) As ready as I’ll ever be.
SAM: (smiling) Don’t worry, I’ve got your back.
They enter the building and head upstairs to Molly’s apartment. They find her sitting on the couch, crying.
MOLLY: (startled) Sam! Oda Mae! What are you doing here?
SAM: (determined) We’re here to protect you from Carl.
ODA MAE: (exasperated) He’s got a plan to hurt you, honey. And we can’t let that happen.
MOLLY: (fearful) What do we do?
Sam and Oda Mae explain their plan to Molly. They will lure Carl and his goons to a nearby park, where they will be ambushed by the police. Molly is hesitant but agrees to go along with the plan.
EXT. PARK – DAY
Carl and his goons arrive at the park, expecting to find Molly waiting for them. Instead, they find a group of policemen waiting for them.
CARL: (suspiciously) What the hell is going on here?
SAM: (appearing out of nowhere) Surprise, Carl.
Carl and his goons draw their weapons, ready to fight. Sam uses his ghostly powers to disarm them and knock them out.
SAM: (smirking) Looks like the tables have turned.
The police arrive and arrest Carl and his goons. Sam, Oda Mae, and Molly watch as they are taken away in handcuffs.
MOLLY: (relieved) Thank you, Sam. And thank you, Oda Mae.
ODA MAE: (tearfully) Don’t thank us yet, honey. There’s still one more thing we need to do.
SAM: (nodding) It’s time for me to move on, Molly.
MOLLY: (heartbroken) No, Sam. Please don’t go.
SAM: (comforting) It’s okay, Molly. I’ll always be with you. In your heart.
Sam disappears into the afterlife, leaving Molly and Oda Mae behind.
MOLLY: (whispering) I love you, Sam.
ODA MAE: (smiling) He knew that, honey. And he loved you too. More than anything.
