I Said Yes is a journal entry of Sam's, dated June 6th, 1995, and is the final journal entry before the ending. It is prompted by looking at the drawing on the futon in the attic.
Oh my god Katie, I fell asleep in the attic, in Lonnie and my old spot, and I missed the first two calls. I just barely caught the third one before the machine got it and it was LONNIE on a PAYPHONE. She'd been on a bus to Basic and she said she couldn't-- she couldn't think of anything but ME, and US, and that she couldn't go through with it, with the Army, and being apart and ALL of it. And so she got off the bus in SALEM. She said, " Sam, I want you to pack up everything you can and get in your car and come find me and let's just DRIVE... until we find somewhere... for us. And she asked me...if I could do that. And I said yes...Yes!
