Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone. Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change. Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime. Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive. Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much. Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way. Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty. Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it. Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes. Callie: And let it go when we can. Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again. Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away. Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five. Alex: Denial. Derek: Anger. Bailey: Bargaining. Lexie: Depression. Richard: Acceptance.
Arizona: McDreamy. Alex: Sorry. Arizona: I get it now. The whole McDreamy thing. I didn't get it before, but now I totally get it. You know they call you that, right? Alex: Yes. Arizona: I'm involved, by the way. In case you thought I was coming onto you just now, which I was not. Plus I heard you got married, by the way. So, congratulations! Derek: Yes, thank you. Alex: He wrote some hokey crap on a post-it note in the residents' lounge. Sorry but until you're sweating it out in a morning coat, you're not really married. Derek: I've consummated mine. I consummate mine all the time. How's that going for you Karev? Girls talk. You might want to think about that the next time you criticize my post-it.
