  • Painful to watch, not because its sad, but because everything is just terrible, like the show usually is.

  • They built up tension in the first episode, only to get rid of all of it by placing the one character who can't die in harms way.

  • May I just say that Dylan Young, the bomb squad leader, is molten lava HOT?! That's Kyle Chandler in the role from Early Edition, Homefront, and now Friday Night Lights. He totally deserved his Emmy nomination as Guest Star.

I know this is mad. And I know that I’m this ass who’s been yelling at you all day. So you pretend that I’m not. You pretend that I’m someone you like. Whatever you need. But you need to listen to me.

    • (Meredith is about to pull the bomb out) Dylan: Meredith. Meredith: George and Izzie shouldn't have to move out. Dylan: No. You hear me. Meredith: You should make sure. Make sure that they, that they get to stay in the house.

    • Derek: You didn't answer my question, Yang. Cristina: Sir? Derek: How's the girl with the bomb? (Cristina looks conflicted) Cristina: It's Meredith. (Derek looks startled) The girl with the bomb is Meredith.

    • George: Dr. Milton shouldn’t have left you. He’s a coward. Hannah: I'm a coward. George: No. Hannah: I ran away. ... You think you’re going to be different. You think you’re gonna be the kind of person who stays and does something. (she shakes her head) You know a good man in a storm. I’m a paramedic. I’m supposed to stay and do something. I’m not supposed to run away. I’m not supposed to hide under the stairs cause I left two people to die. I’m supposed to stay and do something. I ran away.

    • Meredith: Let's go over it again. Dylan: The device is shaped like a rocket. About 8 inches long. We’re going to have everything ready. Dr. Burke’s team is going to be in place. My team is going to be in place. And I’m going to ask you to take the hand that you have in Mr. Carlson, wrap it around the device- Meredith: -- And pull it out. Dylan: Level. Pull it out while keeping it level. Meredith: You know I don’t like you very much. Dylan: I don't like you either.
