Didn’t We Almost Have it All.

January 29, 2010

CRISTINA: “I am wearing the dress. I’m ready. And, and maybe I didn’t want to before. But I want to now. I really think I want this.”
PRESTON: “I really wish you didn’t think. I wish that you knew.”

PRESTON: “Cristina, I could promise to hold you, and to cherish you. I could promise to be there, in sickness and in health. I could say till death do us part. But I won’t. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope. I do not stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic. I am not hopeful. I am sure. I am steady. I’m a heart man. Take ’em apart, put ’em back together, hold them in my hands. I am a heart man. So this, I am sure. You are my partner. My lover. My very best friend. My heart. My heart beats for you. And on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this. I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands, I promise you… me.”

MEREDITH: “Stop whining. This is your wedding day. You will got on that aisle. You will get married! If I have to kick your ass every step of the way to get you there. You will walk down the aisle and you will get married. Do you hear me Cristina? We need this. We need you to get your happy ending.”

MEREDITH: “If you want to break up with me, so that you can see other women, just do it. Don’t tell me you met another woman. Just end it, if that’s what you want.”
DEREK: “I can’t.”
MEREDITH: “Sure you can, here’s how it goes. Meredith, I don’t want to see you anymore. Meredith, I don’t love you anymore.”
DEREK: “Meredith, I do love you. Don’t you see? Don’t you understand? You’re the love of my life. I can’t leave you. But you’re constantly leaving me. You walk away when you want, you come back when you want. Not everyone, not your friends, but you leave me. So, I’m asking you, if you don’t see a future with us. Please… please just end it because I’m in it. Put me out of my misery.”
MEREDITH: “I… I can’t. Christina’s getting married. I have to go… to make sure she’s getting married.”
DEREK: “Meredith?
MEREDITH: “I really need to make sure she gets down that aisle.”
DEREK: “Let’s go, we’re running late.”

PRESTON: “I’m up there waiting for you to come down the aisle and…I know you don’t want to come. If I loved you, I wouldn’t be up there waiting for you. I would be letting you go.”
