Episode Quotes
Meredith: And then you know what's gonna happen after he moves in don't you? We build a house on his land, which will be our land because we'll be married. And then I'll be Dr. Mrs. Shepherd. And you know what comes after that don't you? Babies. They'll be his babies so they'll have perfect hair, and they'll be chatty. So I'll have five chatty children, a chatty husband, and live in a house in the wilderness. And then I'll start sleeping with your husband. I gotta tell him I've changed my mind. Don't you think?
Cristina: Meredith!

Meredith: Okay, I built the house of candles, that is unprecedented in the Meredith chronicles.
Derek: Fine, lets move in together.
Meredith: Fine.
Derek: Unless of course you just wanna go ahead and get married. Gotcha! You wanna know where I learned that? It goes with the story of how I cut my hand.
