Matt Damon is told his wife died in Contagion

Matt Damon is told his wife died in Contagion

She failed to respond.

Matt Damon as Mitch Emhoff: Okay.

And her heart stopped.


And unfortunately she did die.


I'm sorry Mr. Emhoff.

I know this is hard to accept.

Okay, so can I go talk to her?

Mr. Emhoff, I'm sorry, your wife is dead.

No, I mean I just saw her. We were just at home.

Is there somebody that we can call? Someone who you think should be here with you?

We had dinner. We had pizza. She said she was jetlagged.

Some people get a disease and live. Some get sicker and die. Now we're gonna have to notify the medical examiner. And they may request an autopsy. Or if you wish, we can order one. But I can't guarantee it's gonna tell you anymore than I can. My best guess, is that this was either meningitis or incivilites. And with incivilites we're in the dark a lot of the time. If it was summer, I might say a bugbite. You know, West Nile. Herpes can cause incivilites.

She didn't have Herpes. What are you talking about? What happened to her!?
