The Fault In Our Stars (Hazel)
The Fault In Our Stars Monologue
Synopsis: Augustus asks Hazel to give his eulogy while he is still alive so that he can enjoy it.
HAZEL: Augustus Waters was the great starcrossed love of my life. Ours was an epic love story, and I won’t be able to get more than a sentence into it without disappearing into a puddle of tears. (beat) Like all real love stories – ours will die with us, as it should. I’d hoped that he’d be eulogizing me, because there’s no one I’d rather have…” (beat, composing herself) “I can’t talk about our love story so instead I will talk about math. I am not a mathematician, but I know this: there are infinite numbers between 0 and 1. There’s .1 And .12 And .112 And an infinite collection of others. Of course, there is a bigger infinite set of numbers between 0 and 2, or between 0 and a million. Some infinities are bigger than other infinities. A writer we used to like taught us that. I want more numbers than I’m likely to get, and God, I want more numbers for Augustus Waters than he got. But, Gus, my love, I cannot tell you how thankful I am for our little infinity. You gave me a forever within the numbered days, and for that I am eternally grateful. I love you.
