  • Mer and Der getting ENGAGED!!!!!

  • Derek: I'm not going to get down on one knee. I'm not going to ask a question. I love you Meredith Grey and I want to spend the rest of my life, with you.
Meredith: And I want to spend the rest of my life with you.

Opening Statement/Quote:
Alex: Surgeons are all messed up. We're butchers. Messed up, knife happy, butchers. We cut people up. We move on. Patients die on our watch. We move on. We cause trauma, we suffer trauma. We don't have time to worry about how all the blood and death and crap really makes us feel.

Ending Statement/Quote:
Alex: It doesn't matter how tough we are. Trauma always leaves a scar. it follows us home, it changes our lives. Trauma messes everybody up. But maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up. Before we can step up.
