       (Actress enters, holding a cell phone)

      You can't worry about everything....says my almost 94 year old father, who just fell last weekend and smashed his face on something - not sure what because it happened so fast.  And because he was a boxer when he was in the military, he is tough, and even though he was bleeding, even though he had to crawl for two hours into the bedroom BECAUSE HE FORGOT HIS PHONE, he doesn't want a 'help button'.  Even though he almost had to go to the hospital - which he hates.....does he want to keep a phone with him at night when he traipses into the bathroom at 3am?  (exasperated) can't worry about everything!  Waves arms)  What wisdom.  What strength!  What insanity!
But he's wrong.  You can worry about everything. 

       (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

 I know, because I do......
