"She's losing a lot of blood. With the way it is coming out of her, I don't know if we'll make it to the OR to save her life. Get all the blood bags that you can in the OR now!"

"Work with me goddamnit. I will not lose a life today!"

"We don't know how extensive the injuries are to her brain until she wakes up. It's possible that she could have little to no memory left. Or it could be that she wakes up with it completely intact. There's no way to tell right now since she's still unconscious, especially since it was her head that took most of the trauma more than anything."

"Lauren, honey, we're all here. Please wake up. Oh my baby girl. Please, wake up."

"Laur, you have to fight. Please, just wake up. Mila's not doing so great and she keeps blaming herself for this. We could really use your help in convincing her it's not her fault."

"Lo, I'm so sorry. I never meant for this. I never meant to break your heart..."

"Hey, Lauren. It's your dad, kiddo. It's been two months and you're still lying in this bed unconscious. The doctor's can't explain why you're still lying here and not up and talking. But you take all the time you need so you can come back to us whole."

"No, Jess. I am not going to leave her side. This is my best friend. She was there for me and now I am going to be with her through this. If you care for me at all, you would understand."

"It's been 4 months. Do you think she'll ever wake up?"

"I keep expecting you to pop up and say that this is all a joke and you've been pretending to be unconscious the last 4 months. Lo...I still love you. Even if you don't, I still love you. I just... I don't know how to explain this, but I hope when you wake up, we can talk about this. Oh and just so you know, Jess and I are not together anymore...it wasn't working out."

"Lauser. You have to come back to us. It's been half a year. I know you're in there. I know you can hear all of us talking about you and you're probably scared or hurt. I understand. I know things between you and Mila aren't the greatest right now, but you have to come back for your family at least."

"We really don't know if she'll wake up at this point. She has been unconscious for 8 months. The good part is that she still has brain activity, which means there is still a possibility for her to wake up, but we don't know when it will happen. I'm sorry."

"Lauren, it's Chris. I know we aren't always on the best terms since we are at two different sides of the spectrum, but I want you to know that I love you and I really miss you. I wish you would come back to us. I miss having you around the house. Just please..."

"Lauren, Chris is starting to get on my nerves. I'm not trying to be selfish here or anything like that, but you need to wake up. I'm begging you. Of course you know that I am just kidding about that. I just miss my older sister. The house feels cold and...mom and dad aren't doing so great. They are taking this really hard. And I feel that if you never wake up, it's going to tear them apart. I don't know what to do."

"It's been a year. I know this is going to be difficult, but I think the options of taking her off the ventilator and the machines would be something to be considered. Her brain activity is very minimal, almost nonexistent. I'm very sorry."

"Mike, do you honestly think this is the best thing to do? This is our eldest, our first born. I can't..."

"They're planning on turning off the machines keeping you alive..."
