"Today's the day my life begins. All my life I've been just me, just a smart-mouthed kid. Today I become a man. Today I become a husband. Today I become accountable to someone other than myself. Today I become accountable to you, to our future, to all the possibilities that our marriage has to offer. Together, no matter what happens, I'll be ready for anything, for everything . . . to take on life, to take on love, to take on possibility and responsibility. Today, our life together begins, and I, for one, can't wait."
— Alex Karev, season 5, episode 22
