In this scene, Baba gets admitted to the hospital. After finding out what the cause of his illness is.
Baba, you have cancer of the lungs. It will kill you if you don't let us treat it. I'm sure Amir would like to see his father live.
Sir, you must stay. Just for the night.
Baba ends up having to stay, but he only stays for the night. He leaves the next day...
I will not stay here, I have life. *COUGH*
Please Baba, stay. I need you to be alive. Please.
Baba gets the blessing, and Soraya asks to meet Amir back at his house. She has to talk to him about her personal life and her background story.....
Baba, I really do love her. I want to marry her. Can you get me her fathers blessing?
They leave the hospital so Amir can see Soraya and have a chat with her.....
"When we lived in Virginia I ran away with an afghan man. I was eighteen at the time... rebellious... stupid, and... he was into drugs." "Padar eventually found us he showed up at the door and made me come home." "Does it bother you enough to change your mind?"
"No, Soraya. Not even close. Nothing you said changes anything. I want us to marry"
