Background Info: Eddie is talking to a close friend about his girlfriend who died in a horrible car crash earlier that night.

You know what I found out tonight? Huh? You know what I found out. That life is a... a... a... a puzzle! Life is a PUZZLE. Except there's... there's no picture on the box... no kind of direction, at all, cause... cause the pieces are all scattered and broken everywhere... and just when ya think ya got it, (more intense) JUST WHEN YA THINK YA GOT IT! You don't. Cause there's always pieces missing, there's always something missing. And then it all comes tumblin' down, Your whole life just comes tumblin' down. And I miss her already (beat).

Ya know, She had the most beautiful eyes. Yeah they were like hazel green or somethin', I don't know. (beat) It should've been me, ya know. I should've been the one driving that car. She didn't deserve to go like that, she didn't do anything. (crying) We were supposed to grow old together. We were supposed to live together, and have kids, and be happy. We were supposed to DIE together! (calming down) I can't believe she died without me. She was a piece in my puzzle, a piece of my heart and now that she's gone, there's just a big gaping hole. And the way I feel now, I don't know if it will ever be filled.
