Meredith and Alex have drinks and catch up. Surely she's proud of him for his engagement to Jo, but will a talk with Alex be enough to convince Meredith to pursue something with the new transplant doctor who has eyes for her?
It has been a long road for Meredith Grey. She climbed the professional ranks, starting as an intern with four other close friends, and now she's a world-renowned, innovative surgeon and Chief of General Surgery well on her way to receiving a Harper Avery. It's just her and Alex remaining, but the MAGIC is still there.
MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore." DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over." MEREDITH: "Finally." DEREK: "Yeah, it's done." MEREDITH: "It is done."
CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club." GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't." CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."
