The guys see her as a good sport, and they gradually become friends. They agree that she'll be the special guest of each guy in a different city. Although Bob keeps interrupting the others and keeping Ivy to himself, she does manage to spend some time with Shakespeare, and finds out that Bob doesn't have long to live. Ivy is devastated, because she's falling in love with Bob. Bob is also falling in love with her. When they make a stop to attend her sister's wedding, they decide to get married, even though they know the marriage will be a short one. They spend their time together getting as much joy out of life as they can until the end.
