House of Ominous Declarative Sentences. Mere's lying in bed, probably still in shock. Izzie knocks and enters and says that there's someone at the door for her. Mere heads downstairs and McDreamy's there waiting. And yes, he even waits hotly. "Hey," she says in a tone of voice that's like, "Uh, what're you doing here?" "Hey," he says back in a tone of voice that's like, "I almost lost you and I STILL can't bring myself to leave my wife so, yes, I'm still a pussy."
"You almost died today," he says. "Yeah, I almost died today," she says. There's a pause and there doesn't seem to be much more to say, so they just look at each other for a moment. Then Derek decides to leave, because kissing her and telling her he loves her is clearly out of the question. "I can't " starts Mere. "I can't remember our last kiss." Derek stops and looks at her. "All I could think about was, 'I'm gonna die today and I can't remember our last kiss,' which is pathetic, but the last time we were together and happy I want to be able to remember that, and I can't, Derek. I can't remember it." He kind of thinks for a moment and then smiles and says, "I'm glad you didn't die today." Oh. Okay. Thanks, Derek! Thanks for that!
Thankfully, he doesn't leave it at that. Instead, he turns at the door and says, "It was a Thursday morning. You were wearing that ratty little Dartmouth t-shirt you look so good in. The one with the hole in the back of the neck. You'd just washed your hair and you smelled like some kind of flower. I was running late for surgery, you said you were gonna see me later. Then you leaned into me, you put your hand on my chest and then you kissed me. Soft but quick. Kinda like a habit. You know, like we'd do it every day for the rest of our lives. You went back to reading the newspaper and I went to work. And that was the last time we kissed." He goes to leave. "Lavender," says Mere. "My hair smelled like lavender, from my conditioner." "Lavender," he says with a sexy little smile, and finally leaves. She looks after him as her voice-over says, "If you knew this was your last day on earth, how would you want to spend it?"
Duh. With McDreamy after I'd conditioned my hair with lavender, obviously.
