House Intruder? (103.21)

GRACE: I was on my own for 5 1/2 years. And all I wished for every day was for you to still be here. But you weren't here, and so yes, I gathered a village around me. Lindsay helped with Olive's soccer. Justin fixed the bathroom sink, Rob kept me sane at work. They helped me through an impossibly difficult time. And none of those men are the one man you're really asking about. You don't know that man. You've never met him. And you will never have to because you came home. You're finally home.
