As Oswald begins a sort of countdown to his suicide he looks through photographs of other people who took their own lives (Virginia Woolf, Marilyn Monroe and Tony Hancock). He explains how they were, on the whole, unhappy people. But, this isn't the case with him. He just wants to stop the changes in his life.
His attempt to kill himself is unsuccessful, but it brings Marilyn closer to him. She realises that Oswald felt that so much was going to alter that he thought that was it for him, he wouldn't be used again and might as 'check out now'.
His attempts did save the collection, Mr Anderson got an American collection to buy it, so it was still all together.
