The Ambulance Poem

In the book, while Hazel and Augustus are waiting for the ambulance at the gas station (due to Gus's G-tube infection), she recites William Carlos Williams's "The Red Wheelbarrow" to him. This heartbreaking moment was altered in the movie, omitting the poem recitation, but keeping the rest of the scene intact.

Notably, the scene where Hazel discovers Gus wet the bed during the worst of his cancer is not in the film, either.
