11-day-Roswell-Celebration – Which Scene Makes You Most Teary-Eyed?
Jesse: I’m goin’ with you.
Isabel: (tearfully) No… Jesse, you can’t.
Jesse: To hell with Boston, an’ – an’ to hell with… a career and a normal life! …whatever that is. …I love you. That’s all that matters to me…
Isabel: (Looks at him with sad tenderness.) The fact that you would… come here… and you’re willing to do this… it means more to me than you will ever know… but I can’t let you do it.
Isabel: No..! I dragged you into this whole thing without ever telling you the truth, and it was wrong… And the only way to make it right is to let you go… (Jesse shakes his head no.) So, go. Go to Boston. Start over. Just… have the life that you were supposed to have before you met me…
Jesse: I’m not going without you.
Isabel: You have to.
[Jesse stares at her intensely, but finally sees she is resolved.] Jesse: …Will you come back to me?
Isabel: I will keep praying… that someday it will be safe enough…
Jesse: Well… I’m going to count on that.
[He takes her hand and puts the rings back on her finger, then kisses her hand.] [They share one last desperate hug. She is crying.] Isabel: I love you…
[Maria is outside her house when she sees Michael sitting out by the curb on his motorcycle. She walks over to him.]
Maria: I thought you were leaving.
Michael: I am… but I just wanted… I dunno.
Maria: –t’say goodbye?
Michael: (struggles to form words, then speaks.) …I wanted to say that this thing has been screwed up from the beginning. You and me. Us. Just the whole long, stupid story…
Michael: But I wouldn’t trade it for anything. It’s meant so much to me, y’know. From day one, from the moment I kidnapped you and stole your car… I knew you were the girl for me. I never wanted anyone else…
Maria: Michael… (takes a step towards him, sad, but touched.)
Michael: I still don’t. Just… Wherever I’m goin’, whatever I’m doin’, just know I’ll always love you.
[Abruptly, Michael puts on his helmet and starts his bike.] Maria: Wait. No… wait. You – you can’t just say that and then—
[Michael rides off, leaving Maria standing in the street, stunned and lost.]
Max: Hi, I’m Max Evans. I thought I’d take this opportunity to say a few things on behalf of myself and the graduating class. Some of us are here tonight to walk across this stage and get our hard-earned diplomas and toss our caps in the air. But there’s another group here tonight, a group of people who are here for another reason altogether. They’re here to say goodbye. Goodbye to their high school lives. Goodbye to family and friends. You see, this group has been though a lot. And tonight is the night they’ve decided to call it quits. It’s been a long, hard road for them. They have a lot of wounds. They’ve lost people. People that were close to them. They’ve had each other to cling to. But tonight that’s all coming to an end. I’m a member of that group of…outsiders. I always knew I was different. And for a long, long time, all I wanted was to be another face in the crowd. But in the end…it wasn’t possible. I guess it never was. So from now on, I’ll just concentrate on being who I really am. Some of you might not like that. Some of you might even find that frightening. But that’s not my problem anymore. I have to be who I really am and let fate take care of the rest. So thank you, Roswell. Thank you for letting me live among you. Thank you for giving me a family. Thank you for giving me a home.
Max: A trick I learned from Superman. Let’s see if it really works.
(Max turns a piece of coal into a diamond, then gets down on one knee)
Liz: Oh, my…
Max: Liz, they’re taking our home from us. They wanna kill us…and they might. But when I look in your eyes I don’t feel angry or deprived. I feel like the luckiest half-human on the planet. You’re pure. You’re true, and you’re real. And right now that seems like the only thing that’s important. I wanna be with you, Liz. Forever.
Liz: ‘Forever’ may only be 12 days.
Max: Then we’ll take those 12 days. And we’ll live 12 lifetimes. Liz Parker…will you marry me?
Liz: I can’t tell you much more than that. It wouldn’t be safe. For you or for us. I can tell you that we’re far away and that we’re all trying to avoid the law and do good in the world. Oh, and I guess I should tell you that Max and I did eventually tie the knot. Give my love to Mom. Let her read this journal too. Then, give it to Maria’s mom, and after that, take it and burn it out in the desert by the ruins of the pod chamber, where my husband was born. So that’s the end. Our life in Roswell. What a long, strange trip it’s been. Will we ever go back? I don’t know. Even I can’t see everything in the future. All I know is that I’m Liz Parker… and I’m happy.
