Mere and Webber are with Grace, who is surrounded on all sides by her friends and family. Mere explains that she's going to give Grace a sedative and then remove the tube. She looks like she's been crying for about five hours. Alice's girlfriend asks her if she's ready. Alice says she is, but as Mere goes to push the sedative, Alice tells her to wait. She leans over and kisses her mom on the head, whispering, "Goodbye, Mommy." Alice looks at the three old ladies. Agnes tells Alice they've already said their goodbyes; they just wanted to be there when Grace crossed over. Alice tells Mere she's ready, and Mere gives Grace her sedative and turns off the machine. She tells the women that it might take a while for Grace to go. A sad song starts playing, and we cut to...
Cristina, in the on-call room with Burke. She paces around, all upset that Sydney wants her to apologize. Burke says she needs to apologize. Cristina disagrees, and paces some more. Burke tells her the thing with him wasn't her fault -- he's supposed to be her teacher, but she came to him as his girlfriend, and he responded in the same way. Cristina says she's not used to being wrong. Burke: "I know. But you're an intern. Second-guessing a resident? That's not your job." Cristina considers this as she hatches evil plans in her head to get back at Sydney for this.
Outside Grace's room, Mere finally tells Webber she saw him at the nursing home with her mom. Webber, trying to stay cool, says he goes whenever he can. Mere asks why he kept it a secret, and he admits that he doesn't know. "Would you like me to stop going?" Mere starts to answer, then changes her mind and says she's going to check on Grace. Before she enters the room, she turns back and asks Webber if he thinks her mom is lonely. Webber says he does think that. Mere hangs her head at this, and goes in to see her patient.
Inside Grace's room, all the people in her life surround her, rubbing her arm and patting her shoulder and being about as sweet as anything I've ever seen. Another song starts playing, this one telling us it's a big-girl world now, as we cut to Cheyenne's surgery. Izzie looks on sadly as the baby is delivered and cleaned up. Grace's friends continue to comfort her as her breathing becomes more labored, and Mere watches them with tears in her eyes. We get an overhead shot of everyone holding on to Grace as she goes, and Number Three says softly, "May she rest in peace." I don't have to tell you about the tears this time, do I? Mere announces the time of death, her voice cracking, and she walks quickly out of the room so she won't completely collapse in front of Grace's family. She runs into a supply closet and tries to catch her breath. McDreamy, of course, sees this and follows her inside.
