  • I loved this Episode! I really liked the end but some of it was kinda Boring to watch a little. The end was the best. My favorite quote on this Episode was by Derek saying "I spent the scariest hour of my life trying to breathe for you." Cute and sad!

And now, I'm getting into your bed, naked.

    • Izzie: I need a vault. (to Burke) Can you be a vault? Because I've eaten a cake and a half and it's just not cutting it. And you don't gossip.

It was with George. Burke (eats a piece of the red velvet cake): It should be firm inside and not spongey. The frosting like meringue, light, but not too sweet. I always thought chocolate inside but... I've been leaning away from that. Izzie: You've thought a lot about this cake. Burke: This cake... for this day... with this woman. Izzie: The red velvet's your winner by the way.
