Theyve stopped and Tony went to get Nola something to eat and drink. Nolas head is resting on Quints shoulder in the car and she tells him that she never thought shed see anyone again and that when she saw Quint come through the door, she thought she was dreaming. She says shes been dreaming a lot lately, shes been tied up so long. Quint urges her not to talk, to rest. He tells her everything is going to be fine that he wont let anything happen to her. He says that before long shell be see Kelly Louise and that he wants her and the baby to come home with him. He says his life has no meaning without her.
Nola asks, But what about Helena? Quint says theres no Helena in his life and he apologizes for behaving so badly after everything that happened on the island. He says never forgive himself but he says if she can find it in her heart to forgive him, never reject her again.
Nola looks up at him and realizes hes hurt. He says that hes fine now that shes back with him. She settles her head back on his shoulder and asks where Tony went. Quint tells her and Nola says shes not hungry. Quint keeps telling her shes all right and that theyre going home.
Nola is sleeping as they drive home. Quint feels Nolas forehead and asks Tony if she had anything to eat or drink. Tony says no and asks if Quint thinks shes sick. Quint says shes warm, but he thinks shell be fine once they get home.
Tony goes into the boarding house ahead of Quint and Nola to prepare Bea for how bad Nola looks. Ed, Maureen, and Hillary are also there. Quint helps Nola walk in and settles her onto a chair. Nola is complaining that shes tired but says she wants to see Kelly Louise. Quint tells Ed to check her for a fever. Ed tells Quint to sit down, that he wants Hillary to check his head. Quint says hes fine that only Nola is important but Ed insists he sit so Quint does and Hillary proceeds to clean the gash on his head. Nola is still insisting she wants to see the baby but her voice is very weak.
Ed tells Nola the baby is fine as he checks her out. Nola stands to go see Kelly Louise, but she collapses to the floor after only a few steps.
