Grey’s Anatomy has never been a predictable show, and that’s one of the many reasons we love it. But if we’re being completely honest here, most of the surprises have made us cry, not smile (or become so overly giddy that we nearly die of joy). Even the musical episode made us cry considering that Callie’s life was on the line. However, last night’s episode gave us one very gleeful moment amongst a sea of lightning bolts, both literal and metaphorical. Matthew proposed to April, and he was not subtle about it. Cue the flashmob!

I have to say that I never expected to see a flashmob outside of the hospital, but it was a pleasant surprise. The fact that April said yes? We can talk about that later. If you missed the flashmob, want to re-watch it, or just need a little joy in your day, watch it below (and no, Matthew can’t dance):

Catch the Grey’s Anatomy season nine finale — which will definitely not be this chipper — next Thursday at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
