    • Alex: Please.
      Izzie: Alex.
      Alex: Look, you went crazy. When Denny signed that DNR, you went crazy. Is that what you want? You want me cutting LVADs?
      Izzie: No.
      Alex: You want to wreck my career? Because I will! I will freakin' cut LVADs before I let you just...just wait! Stop! (they stop pushing the gurney) You don't get to quit. You don't get to quit on me. Please. Tear it up. The DNR. Tear it up!
      Izzie: Where your eyes are supposed to be right now...I see white, sandy beaches. And there's an ocean behind your head, and there are ghosts wandering in and out. I can't live like this. And I can't live...if something goes wrong in that surgery, I don't want any extraordinary measures taken to keep me alive. It's not what I want. I went crazy when Denny signed the DNR because I didn't understand. I didn't understand, but now I do, and I need you to understand. I don't want you to go crazy. I want you to have a brilliant career, and I hope that I get to be there for that, but if I can't, I I just want to go to the other side. I don't know what's there, but it's got to be better than hospital beds and tubes down my throat. Please. Please don't cut LVADs. Just...if it comes down to it, just let me go. And right now, kiss me. Please, please just kiss me and close your eyes because the beach is so distracting.
      Alex (crying): Alright. (kisses her)
