    • Alex: Are you okay? You're bleeding. (Mer opens the baby's incubator) Mer, what are you doing?
      Meredith: Get me a blanket. I'm taking her out.
      Alex: Mer, put her back in.
      Meredith: She just got thrown around in a plastic box. She needs to be held. I'm not putting her back in.
      Alex: Are you okay?
      Meredith: No, I'm not okay.
      Alex: Mer, listen, we got to get out of here before this thing blows.
      Meredith: Well, how are we gonna do that? She's connected to a million things.
      Alex: You got the bag and the baby, I'll get the o2 tank and I.V and we're gonna disconnect her from the antibotics.
      Meredith: Is that gonna be okay?
      Alex: Yeah, it's gonna have to be.

    • Cristina: That was pathetic.
      Alex: Shut up.
      Meredith (laughing): She told you to go screw yourself, we could hear it all the way over here.
      Alex: It's not 'cause she wasn't into me.
      Cristina: Oh, does 'go screw yourself' have some secret meaning that we're not aware of? Alex: I kind of already knew her... I just didn't remember.
      Meredith (smirks): You slept with her before and forgot about it and then tried to pick her up all over again?
      Cristina: You're not even drinking.
      Meredith: I have a history of Alzheimer's my family. What's your excuse?
      Alex: It's O'Malley's fault. I mean, talkin' about dead people, it throws me off my game, that's all.

    • Owen: It's not right.
      Richard: Who's gonna take over in the middle of a bypass? There's a woman on the table who dies if Teddy walks out of that O.R.
      Owen: It's her husband, Richard.
      Richard: Yeah, and another hour isn't gonna change anything. Goldman's on his way. Tell her then.
      Owen: She's my friend.
      Richard: You're not her friend right now. You're the chief of surgery.
      Owen (sighs): If she finds out that I waited, she will never forgive me.
      Richard: Her husband just died in our O.R. She'll never fogive any of us.

    • Mark: I offered to time share Sofia with Derek and Meredith if they don't end up with kids of their own. He said no.
      Arizona: Why?
      Derek: Because your child is not a rental car. We're not gonna take her out one week a month.
      Arizona: Have you seen her? Because she's heart-stoppingly adorable.
      Derek: You're missing the point.
      Mark: He's missing the point.
      Arizona: No, she's delicious. She's addictive. Why wouldn't you want to parent her?

    • Teddy: Hey, how's it going with Henry?
      Owen: Oh, they're done. You almost finished here?
      Teddy: Oh, it's gonna be awhile. Torres missed a loose screw in this woman's spine, it tore apart her whole left venticle. I've never seen anything like it. I put in a patch but I still need to reinforce it with a muscle flap. It's just... It's a mess. Hey, will you-- will you check on Henry for me and see if he's feeling okay? I told him I'd be in post-op and I wasn't in pre-op. I'm-- I'm a bad wife.
      Owen: I'll-- I'll take over here. You can... You can goo out.
      Teddy: With all due respect, but you are out of your depth. (looks at him) Why does your face look like that?
      Owen: Oh, there was an ambulance broke down on route 2, so we... we lost contact.
      Teddy: Oh, I hope everyone's alright. Ugh, route 2 at night? It's awful. Going over all those mountains? So... Henry wants to go to med school. Can you believe it?
      Owen: No.
      Teddy: I mean, I-I squashed the idea like a bug, which I feel awful about, but I mean, come on I mean, a med student at his age? That's crazy, right? Or-- Or am I just a terrible person?
      Owen: No.
      Teddy: No, I'm not, or it's not crazy?
      April: Ugh, the patch isn't holding.
      Teddy: Ugh, we cannot get a break here. Alright, let's try to pledge it. Will you check on him? And lemme know how it's feeling? Would you?
      Owen (sighs): Yeah, of course.
      Teddy: Oh, and, you know, if you get bored, I mean you could mention that med school is a long haul and that he may want to get a degree in something else. Oh and he's a real stoner on dilaudid. (laughs) So, don't be surprised if he compliments your eyes.
