[Amanda has just died]
John: [Remorsefully] Game over. [Turns and sees Jeff pointing a gun at him; scoffs] You haven't learned anything tonight, have you? Your rage and your vengeance will only hurt the ones you love. Killing me will only add to your misery. It will not bring back your son. Think of your daughter, Jeff. She needs you, now more than ever. You can't kill me, Jeff.
[Jeff laughs and pulls the trigger; nothing happens]
John: Your wife's dying, Jeff. Her time's running out. [Jeff walks over to the barely alive Lynn] Jeff, do not miscalculate. Your fate is in my hands. Your wife's fate is in my hands.
Jeff: [Quietly, to Lynn] I love you.
Lynn: [To Jeff] I love you.
Jeff: I'm taking you home, okay?
John: Though you may not see any threat, there are threats all around you. Jeff, if you try to move your wife, she will die. I can have an ambulance here in four minutes. Would you like to take your wife out of here tonight? Would you like to take her to safety?
Lynn: Stay.
John: Stand and face me, Jeff.
Lynn: Stay with me.
John: Right now. Would you like to get your life back? Would you, Jeff? I can make that happen. Which is it, Jeff? Come on. Yes or no?
Jeff: Yes. What do you want?
John: One final test. The rules are simple. Over on that table is a host of vicious implements... which you can use to exact your pound of flesh, to take your vengeance, to indulge your obsession. Or... you can choose to put your vengeance aside and you can forgive. You can forgive me for the pain that I've caused you and your wife tonight. Which is it going to be, Jeff?
Lynn: Jeff.
John: It's up to you.
Lynn: I need you.
John: Live or die, Jeff... make our choice.
[A long, tense moment passes by]
Jeff: I forgive you. [Walks away]
Lynn: [Weakly] Jeff. Jeff.
[Jeff appears with a power saw]
Lynn: Jeff!
John: Yeah...
[Jeff prepares to kill John]
Lynn: Jeff, no...
[Jeff slits John's throat]
Jeff: [Sarcastically] I forgive you.
