should I say mind over matter? I agree with all of you, there should have been a better way, um not jumping off the building, hey just remember he had nothing to live for. y'knw if that dr and him could have gotten a bonding there, that just may have had him have that something worth living for. they could have had a lasting friendship a bond there that would last a long time, yes a psychiatric dr. would and may have helped as well.
the guy should have been carried to the childrens "cancer" ward or something, then maybe he would have changed his mind, just saying.
and yes I wish the writers could have smoothed that out a lot!!
