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.
April Kepner: Well, this didn't go according to plan.
Matthew Taylor: Let's try again.
April Kepner: I don't think Alex or Jo would have any interest in having me attempt for a second time.
Matthew Taylor: I wasn't talking about them. April, I love you. All day, I've watched you plan an entire wedding for other people, and I love that you're the only one who cares that it all went to crap. I love... I love how much you trust God. I love how you sing to Harriet... and how you hold her little hands when you pray with her. And I love the way you talk to Ruby. You saved her. You saved me. And I know that this is fast and crazy, but I... I don't care... because I love... I loved who you were five years ago, and I love you even more today. I don't ever want to be without you again, and I almost had to be. So I don't want to waste any more time. April, will you marry me?
April Kepner: Yes. Yes.
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.
Miranda Bailey: I have a secret. I don't even need this contest, 'cause I just signed a contract with a manufacturer. Mm. I'm gonna be rich. We're going to make the TrailBlazer. Me and Midnight Pleasures, Inc. My husband said, "You really want to go into business with a sex-toy company?" I said to him, "I have a colonoscopy device. It goes into people's rectums. This company already has items that function similarly. Don't make it nasty."
April Kepner: Wait. What? You're making your colonoscopy TrailBlazer with a sex-toy company?
Miranda Bailey: Meredith Grey called it the "TailBlazer." That's where I got the idea.
April Kepner: I lost God. I-I lost Matthew Taylor's wife. I lost her in childbirth. And then this little boy died for no earthly reason, and... God was nowhere to be found. I lost him. And that's never happened to me before, and I got scared... and, uh, really angry. And all during our marriage, I just... I wanted you to know God the way that I did, and you never wanted to. And so, when I lost him, it felt like, I don't know, you've won or something. And... I hated that. I hated you.
Jackson Avery: Yeah, well, I was just trying to help.
April Kepner: I know, I know, I got it. You did. Oh, my God, you did. Things got... really rough, and I just... I needed to be sure that Harriet was okay. And of course she was because... of you. And I'm... I'm good now. I, uh... I found Him again. He and I are, like, tighter than ever. So you know. But I realize that even when it felt like He wasn't there... you were. So thank you. Thank you.
April Kepner: Tom, I, um... what I was trying to say is that I was horrible to you. And you were kind, and you were vulnerable and I was...
Thomas Koracick: Just using me for sex?
April Kepner: Yes, I was just using you for sex. And I am sorry. I am sorry for that.
Thomas Koracick: Look, no. I love being used for sex, Dr. Kepner. You can use me for sex, uh, any time you...
April Kepner: No, I didn't... I... No.
Thomas Koracick: Oh, you... you made up with God? Well, for whatever it's worth, uh, I'm almost certain God approves of you using me for sex.
Patient: Nowhere, in any faith, is there a guarantee.
April Kepner: I'm not asking for everything to be good all the time. But fair... I think that I...
Patient: Fair? Was it fair when Isaac went blind and then his child betrayed him? And where was the fairness when Sara had to wait 99 years before she had a child, and God said, "Sacrifice him"? And Moses couldn't even get past the bouncer to the Promised Land. And like I said, I'm not up on the sequel, but from what I hear, Jesus got a raw deal. Nobody in the Bible lived a life free of suffering or injustice, or it wouldn't have been a best seller. And if they lived lives like that, why should ours be diff... different? Now, if people only believed in God when things were good, I guarantee you, after the Holocaust, not a single Jew would be a believer.
April Kepner: 24 hours. 1,440 minutes. 86,400 seconds. That's all it takes for a patient to go from sick to healthy, from hopeful to dire.
Owen Hunt: One day can you bring back from the brink, change your entire life in one heartbeat, one single breath.
Meredith Grey: It's why doctors watch you like a hawk, hold you for observation. It's why we behave as if your every move, every sound, every input and output, is life or death. Because it is.
Owen Hunt: 24 hours. 1,440 minutes. 86,400 seconds. That's all it takes to save your life. To change your life.
April Kepner: One single day can pull us from the depths of despair.
Meredith Grey: And one single day can fill us with more possibilities than we could imagine.
Thomas Koracick: I-look at your home, here. Fun toddler detritus, lots of light, warmth, books.
April Kepner: Your point?
Thomas Koracick: The woman I met last night? She doesn't live here. And she's not a person you trust with a Power of Attorney. I'm not sure I should trust you with my... penis again. That woman scares me a little. In a "pretty good" way, but, uh... How did that woman become this woman?
April Kepner: I'm not gonna get into this with you.
Thomas Koracick: Uh, no... No, no, no. No, no. No, no, no. L... No. Let me do it. Uh, alcoholism. Drugs. Cancer diagnosis. No? Uh... physical trauma? Uh... dead relative. Dead pet. Uh, dead beloved TV-show character.
April Kepner: Oh, my God.
Thomas Koracick: None of these? Okay, that leaves, um, metal illness, acute clinical depression, crisis of faith.
April Kepner: Stop.
Thomas Koracick: Crisis of faith.
April Kepner: No.
Thomas Koracick: Mm-hmm. God is dead.
April Kepner: No.
Thomas Koracick: Ah, yes.
April Kepner: No, He's not dead. I just hate Him so much I wish He was.
