It’s great isn’t it. When you feel so strongly for someone and it’s not just about the sex, it is… it’s true.
“If you miss me, you can’t text, you can’t email, you can’t post it on my Facebook wall. If you really miss me, you come and see me.”
We enter the world alone and we leave it alone and everything that happens in between we owe it to ourselves to find a little company. We need help, we need support, otherwise we are in it by ourselves. Strangers, cut off from each other, and we forget, just how connected we all are. So instead, we choose love, we choose life, and, for a moment, we feel just a little bit less alone.
Alex: Izz… I won!
Izzie: Hey. What time is it?
Alex: Yang. She picked me for the solo surgery.
Izzie: She did? That’s amazing.
Alex: I love you!
Alex: I love you! I frickin’ love you. I just got the solo surgery and the first thing I did was look for you. And you weren’t there. You’re never there anymore. And I was thinking about it and I think it might be because you love me too. And because you’re scared of that. And because I… I screwed it up last time, and because… Denny died, and-
Alex: Look, just listen. You had that heart patient and it reminded you of Denny and how bad you felt when you were lying on that bathroom floor. I get that! I get that you’re scared. But you’re not going to have to feel like that again. Because I’m not going to die, Izz. And I’m not gonna cheat on you, and I’m not gonna go anywhere! ‘Cause, I think you’re my best shot at… I think that with you… you make me better. You make me wanna be better. You make me want to be good. And I think I can. With you. I think I can. So I’m not going anywhere, and you can stop hiding. And if you wanna be scared that’s okay just be scared with me. Be scared while you scrub in with me on my first solo surgery. Okay?
Izzie: You love me.
Alex: Shut up. (kisses her then leaves) Solo surgery.
Denny (to Izzie): I’m really starting to not like that guy.
(Meredith voice over) When you’re little, night time is scary because there are monsters hiding right under the bed. When you get older, the monsters, are different… self doubt, loneliness, regret… and though you may be older and wiser, you still find yourself scared of the dark.
Karev: Stop. If you don’t want to be with me, if this is too much for you right now, it’s okay. But you’re gonna have to break up with me ’cause I’m not going anywhere. I can handle this mess. It’s up to you.
Sleep. It’s the easiest thing to do. You just… close your eyes. But for so many of us, sleep seems out of our grasp. We want it, but, we don’t know how to get it. But once we face our demons, face our fears, and turn to each other for help, night time is not so scary, because we realize, we are not all alone in the dark.
I’m just gonna keep my eyes closed— because this is like that moment in the morning when you first wake up and you’re still half asleep and everything seems— things are possible, dreams still true. And for that one moment between waking and sleeping anything can be real. And then you open your eyes and the sun hits you and— and you realize that— I’m just gonna keep my eyes closed.

‘Cause I know better not to be friends with boys with girlfriends.
In the Midnight Hour
We’re born, we live, we die. Sometimes not necessarily
in that order. We put things to rest only to have them rise
up again. So if death is not the end, what can we count
on anymore? Because you sure can’t count on anything in
life. Life is the most fragile, unstable, unpredictable thing
there is. In fact there is only one thing in life we can be
sure of. It ain’t over ’til it’s over.
