Nightline does a second story on Morrie. The camera team comes over and everyone is more comfortable with one another than the first time; Koppel and Morrie swap stories and chat before they go on air.
Once they start, Koppel asks Morrie how he knows when things are "going downhill" (11.6).
Morrie shares that he feels saddest about losing the range of motion in his hands and his voice.
Then they talk about how people can communicate without language, through being silent.
At the end of the show, Morrie reads a letter that he got from a schoolteacher who taught a classroom full of kids, each of whom had lost a parent.
Morrie chokes up on camera and says that he lost his own mother when he was a kid; even though it was a long time ago, the memory is still painful to him.
