Melinda: Your memories. The reason that you can never make sense of them is they’re not yours. They belong to a ghost.
Sam/Jim: Okay, now, look…
Melinda: Someone who died and then went into Sam’s body.
Sam/Jim: Sam. You’re talking about Sam as if he’s…
Melinda: He’s gone. He went into the light. You’re not Sam anymore.
Sam/Jim: Who am I?
Melinda: Jim. My husband. Or at least what’s left of him. You may not remember that now and you may never remember that, but I told you to go into the light and you wouldn’t. And then Sam’s body offered a second chance.
Sam/Jim: Okay, okay, listen, Melinda…
Melinda: But I know how hard it is to accept this, okay? But just think about what’s happened. All the random memories, the gunshot, all those things that you suddenly remembered about medicine, those things came from Jim, and then…Then there’s me. What you feel. What we both feel. You remembering that you wanted children, that all came from someplace. It came from a life that you shared with me. That has to mean something, right?
