Torque converter went out on my 2005 Ford Escape coming back from vacation! on 2005 Ford Escape

Ford dealer in Orlando wants to replace torque converter AND transmission since it has 150K miles on it. Can we just fix the converter or do I need to fix both? Or should I just tow it somewhere and trade it? Only owe 2K on the darn thing..typical!
