“It really is fun because you guys make it fun and you make it fun for us. And we’re so proud to be a part of a show that tries to provoke thought, and tries to turn things down and make you look at things a different way, or maybe have a little more tolerance than you would ordinary. And maybe love a little more and feel a little more. And we are so grateful to you for hanging in with us for this long and we love you and we appreciate you. Thank you” (Ellen Pompeo)
