Quotes

[Jen and Jack's final scene]
Jack: Jen I want her. I want her. I don't know what you and Grams have discussed.
Jen: Grams is aware of her own situation, her health and all. We both think that you would make an excellent father. Now Jack, please help Amy to find a place to be. I feel like I never really quite fit in.
Jack: Which is why we're us.
Jen: I know. I mean from the second that I stepped out of that cab onto the creek I was the instigator, you know, the girl who caused problems and rocked the creek and upset ...

"...Must come to an end"
4 June 2006 | by littlelaura18See all my reviews

I recommend that every teenager should watch this emotional story.The entire series is brought together in this episode, as it shows their future lives since their childhood. The part of the story which makes it a memorable ending to the classic series, is the part when Jennifer Lindley, (michelle Williams) dies and leaves her daughter to the godfather Jack McPhee ( Kerr Smith). The series ends in an unexpected way and this adds to the great effect of the last episode. The sad part of the series is that it has to end, but it has the best ending i have ever watched. The actors and everyone behind the scenes, including the producer and the director deserve to be thanked for making such a wonderful ending to the perfect series. I watched the whole series and found that it was all made spectacularly.
