"My entire life has been marked by two things. The first one is change. From when I was a kid to when I was an adult, things were always changing. But no matter how different things became or what new challenges I had to face, I always had the other thing in my life was marked by, and that's you. You've always been there. As a friend, as a partner. As the love of my life. You're my home, Iris. And that's one thing that will never change."
"That was really nice. When I was nine years old, I wanted to be a ballerina, remember? Even though I was not a very good dancer. And the day of the recital, I froze. I couldn't move, and I wanted to die. Then I looked in the audience and I saw you. And you got up and you climbed on the stage and you did that whole routine with me. We killed it. I mean, we bought the house...down. And from that moment, I knew that, with you by my side, anything was possible. The Flash may be the city's hero, but you, Barry Allen...you're my hero. And I am happy, excited, and honored to be your wife."
