CM is wheeled out of the O.R. In the scrub room, Bailey tells Izzie, "Of course, now you know, every time he gets a rise, he'll be thinking of you." Izzie smiles.
Mere's VO: "You take it where you can get it. And keep it as long as you can." We see Jorge, still pre-surgery, taking a photo of his wife in her red dress. Then we cut to Mere slowly walking down a flight of stairs with her mother. Mere's VO: "And as for rules? Maybe there are none." Cut to George, getting out of the shower to find Izzie brushing her teeth. He tells her that she'd better not be using his toothbrush, and she confirms that she's not. Because she's not a pig.
Mere's VO: "Maybe the rules of intimacy are something you have to define for yourself." Cut to Mere walking onto the patio of a restaurant and sitting down for breakfast with McDreamy. Credits.
