Meredith Grey: For the longest time, ferry boats made me sad. But from now on, I will look at them the way my husband did. I will see the beauty. I will see the wind, the air, the sea, the motion. I will see the possibility because of the two of you. I have never seen two people bring out better in each other. And if the two of you can take this day and turn it into lemonade, then you can do anything. So, Alex Karev, do you want to marry Jo Wilson?
Alex Karev: I do.
Minister: Do you, Matthew, take April as your wife?
Matthew Taylor: I do.
Meredith Grey: Jo Wilson, do you want to marry Alex Karev?
Jo Wilson: I super do.
Minister: And do you, April, take Matthew as your husband?
April Kepner: I do.
Meredith Grey: By the power vested in me by the Internet...
Minister: And by the power vested in me and with God's abundant blessings, I pronounce you husband and wife.
Meredith Grey: I now pronounce you married. You may kiss the bride.
Minister: You may kiss the bride.
Meredith Grey: What do you want to do now? You want to borrow my Post-it notes?
Alex Karev: You know, even if I have to leave, I'm never leaving you. You know that.
Meredith Grey: I know that.
Alex Karev: And, uh, Maggie showed me something. If you click that button right there, you can become an ordained minister instantly. (Meredith clicks the button)
Alex Karev: Oh! Hey, I thought we weren't supposed to see each other today.
Arizona Robbins: You aren't. You're not. What are you doing?
Jo Wilson: I got it... Mass Gen. I got the fellowship at Mass Gen.
Alex Karev: What?
Meredith Grey: You are not supposed to see each other today.
Alex Karev: Ah, you got married on a post-it.
Arizona Robbins: You're not gonna talk me out of moving, and it's just gonna make us sad, and that's not what today is about, so just shut up and eat your cereal.
Alex Karev: Today is about that. You're leaving today.
Arizona Robbins: Not till after you get married. And Alex Karev married? That's, like, my work here is done.
Alex Karev: Well, at least can I say "thank you"?
Arizona Robbins: Not unless you want to make me cry.
April Kepner: Arizona, I'm fine.
Arizona Robbins: I know. I know.
Alex Karev: No white light? No pearly gates?
Ben Warren: Nothing?
April Kepner: No, because I didn't die, you guys. I was hypothermic. My vessels vasoconstricted to preserve my heat, my heart stopped, my brain shut down, but the cold kept it from dying, and then you all thawed me out and rebooted my body. I didn't die and come back to life. There's one guy that does that... that's Jesus, and I know I didn't die, because if I had, I would've met him. I know that for sure.
Meredith Grey: I came back.
Alex Karev: I remember.
Meredith Grey: All this time, I felt like I'd been robbed, but... I came back, so all the years I had with Derek and the... the kids and the marriage, it's... it's all a bonus.
Alex Karev: I hated Kepner at first. I hated her because I wished I was more like her. She was always prepared, always excited. She... She cared. She liked her patients. And she knew her stuff. She's good. She was all the things I wasn't, all the things I had to work to be. She was just born that way.
Meredith Grey: You gotta stop saying "was."
Alex Karev: Sorry me and my family is so depressing.
Jo Wilson: Shut up.
Alex Karev: She had one really good year when I was a kid. She worked at that library, and I would hang out with her there. We'd play hide-and-seek in the stacks. My whole life, all I ever wanted was a mom who wasn't sick. I didn't care about toys or sports or any of that crap. I just wanted a mom who was okay. And she is. She finally is. And she doesn't want me there.
Jo Wilson: You may never hear what you want to hear from your mom. You may never get an acknowledgment. You may never get an apology. But you have a shot at having a mom. And that... Alex, that's... That's something that's real.
Olivia Jankovic: This Harper Avery stuff...
Jo Wilson: Ugh, nightmare.
Olivia Jankovic: I can't say I'm surprised. When I was here, you wouldn't believe the pig doctors we had to put up with.
Alex Karev: So... what are we looking at?
Olivia Jankovic: Alex Karev. Perfect.
Alex Karev: Olivia.
Jo Wilson: You two know each other?
Olivia Jankovic: Is he still giving nurses syphilis, or has he moved on to gonorrhea?
(Amelia is handing over stoned Alex to Jo)
Amelia Shepherd: Here's his jacket and bag, and I packed him snacks for the road.
Jo Wilson: Thanks.
Alex Karev: You look happy.
Jo Wilson: I had a really, really good day.
Amelia Shepherd: Owen, what you're doing is beautiful. You're fostering him. You're... You're being there for him when nobody else is.
Alex Karev: Ha! My foster parents sucked. No, for real. They just stuck me in a room with some other kids and then collected a check. Except for one. There was one guy. He worked nights in a warehouse. Come home, dead tired at the crack of dawn, and go straight to bed. But then, an hour later, he'd wake up, just so he could eat cereal with me and tell me, you know, "Have a good day," before I went to school. Then he'd go back to sleep. Wasn't much, but, you know, he just gave a crap, you know? He gave a crap, and you, my friend, you are giving so many craps right now. This man's got it made.
