[to patient] "Hey. I'm not going to be able to make it to your surgery. Here's the thing. You were crushed underneath a cement pylon. Dozens of people on that ferry boat died, but you're still alive. So when I come back to check on you after the surgery, you better still be alive. All right? You hear me? Alright."


ALEX: "Whatever. I'm stuck babysitting the patients' families and you get to scrub in."
CRISTINA: "I'm not... scrubbing in. I'm stitching up patients in the Pit."
ALEX: "Ha. Who'd you pissed off to get that?"
CRISTINA: "I happen to be pulling gaping pieces of flesh back together."
ALEX: "You're stitching. You're just one step closer to knitting your grandma's sweater."
CRISTINA: "At least mine's medical."
ALEX: "You knit, I pull pylons off people."

ALEX: "I rescued her. I climbed down. I pulled a massive pylon off her. I got her here alive."
CRISTINA: "There are pylons? There're pylons on people?"

CRISTINA: "Hey! What was the site like? Was it gory? Was it a trauma bonanza? Obviously terrible."
ALEX: "I don't talk to thieves."
ALEX: "You stole my Jane Doe right off from under me."
CRISTINA: "I am not a thief. Man, you balked. You're a balker."
ALEX: "I was thinking."

DEREK: "You wanna get married? You never told me, and I never asked. And now we have a problem."
MEREDITH: "What? No, I don’t want to get married... do you wanna get married?"
DEREK: "No, good. So if that’s not it, what is it?"
MEREDITH: "It isn’t anything."

RICHARD: "What’s the news?"
MARK: "Shepherd and Grey are on the rocks, Burke and Yang got engaged... You need highlights. In your hair, that’s why it looks so odd."
RICHARD: [stares blankly]
MARK: [smiles] "I’m gonna go save lives!"

CALLIE: "Okay, I'm not trying to... take the clinic. Bailey's clinic, by the way. I'm offering to help."
SYDNEY: "Your offer to help is duly noted and very much appreciated, but I promise you, got it all under control. So, Jason Kay?"
CALLIE: "Fine! I'll leave you to it and find myself a recently traumatized emergency surgery to scrub in on, while you stay down here with your sore throat and your sprain and oh... what was it, what was it?"
SYDNEY: "Tummyache."
CALLIE: "Ooh."

CALLIE: "Oh hey, Sydney. I thought I could take a few patients of your hands."
SYDNEY: "I appreciate the gesture Dr. Callie O'Malley. But the Chief asked me to roll the non-emergent ER cases into the clinic to take care of them, so I've triaged these patients. So far it looks like a sore throat, a sprain and a tummyache. Easy breezy, so the clinic and I are fine."

PRESTON: [pause] "Cristina and I are engaged."
DEREK: "Congratulations."
PRESTON: "She doesn’t want to tell anyone. At least, not until she tells Meredith first."
DEREK: "They’re different than other women."
PRESTON: [Laughs] "Yes, these women. Yes they are."
DEREK: "You know, maybe we’ll never know them. I mean really know them. Now that you and Cristina are engaged, you’ve got a lot of work to do."

PRESTON: "You’re confiding in me."
DEREK: "Yes."

"This whole day’s just been... there’s something wrong with Meredith. I tried to ask her what’s wrong, and she says nothing. She tries to drown herself in the tub. Not actually... drown, I don’t think. Something was going on, but she won’t talk about it. One moment we’re fine, and now it’s like... I’m living with a ghost."


ALEX: "Where are we going?"
MIRANDA: "We’ll know when we get there."
IZZIE: "What kind of situation? Fire? Flood? Volcano? Because I’m not really dressed for a volcano."
MIRANDA: "Stevens!"
IZZIE: "Sorry, that was inappropriate. Sorry."

DEREK: "Your Mother! Look, your Mother was lucid and she said some things, and now she's-"
MEREDITH: "Gone! And everything's back to normal, it's not a big deal."
DEREK: "Yeah, except she's having heart surgery today."
MEREDITH: [sighs]
DEREK: "Hey. Do you want me to talk to the Chief? I know you have the Triage thing today, but he'll give you the day off."
MEREDITH: "Stop. I do not need rescuing."
DEREK: "You would've drowned in the bathtub had I not been there."

MEREDITH: "I was taking a bath!"
DEREK: "That's not a bath, I know what a bath looks like."
