She's a fighter. This is something Daniel has always known.
"Yes, Daniel, I am."
She will never accept anything if it's too easy. Life isn't easy.
"Why didn't you tell me?"
"I don't want your pity."
Always surrounded by family, but keeping herself apart. The youngest child, forced into the role of oldest.
"You shouldn't have kept this from me, Betty."
"I needed - need time."
He knows this. He knows this because, in so many ways, he and Betty are alike.
"We can work this out. I'll help you."
"I don't -"
"I'm here, Betty. I'm not running away."
