Classic Grey's Anatomy: "Elevator Love Letter" Moments

at . Comments

Like all episodes, last night's Grey's Anatomy had its share of great scenes. But a few moments really stood out in our minds, and are worth reliving a second (and third) time.

What else would be the first one? Here's the most romantic proposal ever, with Derek having constructed a personal Meredith Grey Hall of Fame in the elevator (where else).

There were no questions asked or answers, just proclamations of love ...

Follow the jump for another powerful scene, albeit a much sadder one, in which Alex laments Izzie's condition and what it means for their future, if they even have one.

All Meredith can do is listen as he pours his heart out to her...

I LOVE DEREK & MEREDITH. This episode made me sooo happy! I was definitely ready for them to be engaged, I just hope either of them don't run off again! Time to settle down :)

I LOVED this episode! I think the proposal elevator scene has to be one of the BEST or close 2nd Mer/Der scenes ever! Patrick and Ellen were great as usual. I too think that maybe Mer/Der will be married at the end of the season. I know Ausiello says the wedding will not be Mer/Der, and it may not, but I just feel like we'll get some type of ceremony with them now that they are engaged. Especially, since PD said there would be some type of union between them. I hope the proposal/commitment in the elevator wasn't the union he was referring too. We want more of a ceremonial committment between them if there isn't going to be a traditional wedding. Thats why I have this feeling (I sound kinda like Meredith here) that there will be something exciting still to take place before season end. I hope this isn't just wishful thinking on my part. Again, loved the proposal, it was so Mer/Der to me. Wish we didn't have to wait so long for the next episode. We will all be exhausted thinking about it by the time it comes back on! (ha)

I didn't love the way the elevator scene was shot. The back and forth super close-up took away from the awesome acting.

It really was a great proposal, I want to be proposed to that way! Where are the promos for next episode?

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
