Michaela walks a little closer to the jumper and tries to connect with why he would want to end his life. But she gets it all wrong, and fails to connect emotionally with the man, who in turn, jumps.

Michaela comes closer
Michaela is still on top of the building trying to get Harvey down.
MICHAELA: Harvey, I’m gonna come closer now, okay?
She starts walking toward him.
HARVEY: I can see the house I grew up in. This is my synagogue. Me and Josh Klein, we used to smoke weed in the parking lot before Hebrew School. I was 12 years old.
Michaela still can’t connect
MICHAELA: And now you feel like you don’t belong here anymore, right, like, you’re not the same person?
HARVEY: People are dying. It has to stop. I’m gonna be next. That’s the only way.
MICHAELA: Harvey, who is dying? Come on, you can You can tell me. Who’s gonna understand if not another passenger? Talk to me, please. I will understand.
HARVEY: Then you can understand this.
Harvey moves toward the edge to jump.
MICHAELA: Harvey, no! Stop! No!
Although Michaela tries to reach him, she can’t. She looks over the edge to see his body on the ground, with a fractured skull.
