Narrator: Hadley Sullivan and Oliver Jones will kiss 12,872 times in their life together. They'll be married 58 years, have 1,462 arguments, and make love 5,787 times. Hadley will hold Oliver's hand when Tessa takes her last breath. Oliver will hold Hadley's when she takes hers. And they will both hold their daughter's hand the day she's born and marvel at her tiny fingers and how none of it would have been possible were it not for a missed flight, a broken seat belt, and a choice to love each other every day.
Hadley Sullivan: Why didn't you fight for Mom? Why didn't you fight for us?
Andrew Sullivan: Oh, Hadley.
Hadley Sullivan: Why? Why didn't you?
Andrew Sullivan: I don't know that I have a good answer for you. It's hard. Somewhere along the way, we just both stopped puttin' in the work. When I came here, we knew. Love is a lot of work.
Oliver Jones: I tried to measure my mum's life in... in numbers. It's, uh... It's what I do. Mum, you know this about me. It's what I do with everything. It helps me... make sense of the world, I guess. The thing is, is that, well... Tessa Jones is not a number. She's not the plays she acted or the... meals she made or the advice she gave. She's my mum.
Tessa Jones: So what happened was that Val and I were planning my funeral, and it was just turning into such a brilliant show that I realized I... I wanted to be alive to see it, so... And you are right. I do hate it when people say nice things about me behind my back. I think it's a... it's a tragic waste.
(Later when Tessa meets Hadley...)
Tessa Jones: It is pretty unusual for somebody to have their memorial before they die.
Hadley Sullivan: It's kind of a genius idea, though. I mean, what's the point of having all these people say really nice things about you if you're not around to hear it?
Tessa Jones: My thoughts exactly.
Oliver Jones: Everything in our lives is now measured by big data. Our social connections, our buying habits, even our daily steps. That means that eventually, one day, everything in our lives will be predictable.
Oliver's friend: I think there's always some things that will catch us by surprise.
Oliver Jones: Not if we have enough data.
Narrator: When you're afraid of surprises, it can seem better to leave nothing to chance.
