Richard: (opening voiceover) Being chief is about responsibility. Every single surgical patient in a hospital is your patient. Whether you're the one who cut them open or not. The scalpel stopped with these. You need to be able to look at her family. And to tell them your team did everything they could to save someone's job. The husband, the wife, you get caught her. Taking care about the people's families. And responsibility, it makes you ... you take care of the people's families. And you sacrifice your own.
Cristina: Did you pass?
Meredith: You bet your married booty, I did.
Mark: I was an excellent best man.
Derek: In the worst case scenario, I sleep with your wife in ten years.
Cristina: He's gone.
Meredith: I don't think he's gone. Uh, his stuff is still here.
Cristina: No. His trumpet isn't here. His entire Eugene Foote collection, vinyl's and CDs. His grandmother's picture was by the bed. His lucky scrub cap was hanging on the door. He's gone. I'm...I'm free. Damn it. Damn it, damn it! Oh God, get this off me! Take this off, take this off! I can't...Help me, help me, help me!
Burke: You okay?
Derek: Fine. You need anything? Mint? A getaway car?
Burke: If it's the chief thing, don't worry about it. You deserve it.
Derek: Richard didn't pick me to be chief.
Burke: We all assumed. Well, who did he pick?
Derek: I don't know, wasn't me.
Burke: Uh, you really don't look so good.
Derek: Meredith and I, we may not make it. I think I want it more than she does. Today's your day. It's all about you today.
Burke: You really are a good best man.
Derek: I try.
Cristina: I'm ready. I'm fine. Meredith talked me down. Really, I'm fine. Go, go, go. I'll be right behind you.
Burke: I'm sorry.
Cristina: Oh. No, I can do this. You know, I had a momentary freak out, but now I'm fine. I can do this.
Burke: But you don't want to do this. I'm up there waiting for you to come down that aisle, and I know you don't want to come. I know you don't want to come but that you'll come anyway because you love me. And if I loved you – if I loved you, not the woman that I'm trying to make you be, not the woman that I'm hoping you'll become – but you. If I did, I wouldn’t be up there waiting for you. I'd be letting you go.
Cristina: I am wearing the dress. I'm ready. And, and maybe I didn't want to before. But I want to now. I really think I want this.
Burke: I really wish you didn’t think. I wish that you knew.
Addison: I need this job Richard. I need it more than the others.
Richard: Addison --
Addison: No, I need a reason to stay here. I need a reason to get up every morning. I need to get up and not care if it's raining or that I'm thirty nine and alone.
Richard: If you need a job to get a new life, you either need a new job or a new life.
Lexie: We're the new interns.
Lexie: Well, you look seasoned and wise. Got any advice?
George: No. Learn how to do an appendectomy start to finish before your first day.
Lexie: You're leaving?
Lexie: Better offer?
George: Just, uh, you know, life.
Lexie: Yeah. Anyways, good luck with life, doctor --
George: My name is George.
Lexie: I'm Lexie. Lexie Grey.
Burke: Christina, I could promise to hold you, and to cherish you. I could promise to be there, in sickness and in health. I could say 'til death do us part. But I won't. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope. I do not stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic. I am not hopeful. I am sure. I am steady. I'm a heart man. Take 'em apart, put 'em back together, hold them in my hands. I am a heart man. So this, I am sure. You are my partner. My lover. My very best friend. My heart. My heart beats for you. And on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this. I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands, I promise you, me.
Addison: I think I speak for every woman here when I say dump her. Dump Yang and marry me.
Meredith: It's over. You can all go home. It's over. So freakin' over.
