    • Dr. Thomas: I know they're trying to push me out. Got this watch at a surprise retirement party four years ago. (laughs) I mean, it's a piece of junk, but I wear it just to screw with them. (Cristina laughs) They are so polite. They don't dare say anything directly, you know? Cristina: Yeah. Dr. Thomas: It's been a while since I've had anyone who cared enough to give me grief. Cristina (smiles): Mm. I'll have another tequila and something that contains actual alcohol for my friend here. Dr. Thomas: Oh, it's late. Cristina: It's like, 10:15, have a drink. Dr. Thomas: Okay. I'll have, um... an old fashioned. (Cristina laughs) What? Cristina: Really? An old-- You know what? I'll have two. Two. Make it two old fashioneds. Dr. Thomas: There you go. Cristina: Old fashion.

    • April (after Richard & Catherine leave together): You okay? Jackson: I'm fine. April: You sure? Jackson: Yeah. April: Wanna have sex? Jackson: Yep.

    • Callie: Okay, uh, Sofia's down for the night. And, uh, I'll be at Mark's if you need anything. Arizona: 'American Bake-Off' is on in a few minutes. (Arizona pats the couch next to her)

    • Derek: How was your day? Meredith: Fine. Derek: How about your tumor? I was in the gallery. Meredith: That was no big deal. Derek: I'm not gonna grow a beard and run off and live in the woods anymore. If you have a good day, I want to hear about it. Meredith (smiles): It was amazing, actually. I didn't know where the hell to start. I stood there staring at the thing forever. I knew that superaceliac aorta was gonna be a bitch to get around. And I couldn't risk clamping without killing off the gut and the kidneys. And finally, it just came to me. Mattox maneuver. Derek (smiling): That's a trauma move. Meredith: Right. And it exposed the other side of the kidney, and wham-- I had perfect visualization. (Derek kisses her) What was that for? Derek: Contact high. I might not come down for hours. (Mer laughs)

    • Jackson: Hey. I need a moment to talk to Dr. Webber, man to man. Catherine: Oh, no. No, you don't. Jackson: Mom. Richard: It's alright. It's okay. Catherine (chuckles): Well, alright, then. (walks off) Jackson: Alright. Here's the deal-- I understand how two people can be drawn together even though they know it's incredibly wrong and it's something that shouldn't have happened. Sex is a powerful force. Alright, look... You hurt my mom, and I hurt you. Richard: I wouldn't hurt your mom. I like her. Jackson: And I don't like that you like her. Richard: Well, man to man, you're just gonna have to deal with it. You don't want a piece of this. Not today. Jackson: I'm watching you. Richard: I hope you like the view. (chuckles as Jackson walks off, Richard walks over to Bailey) I know what you're thinking. I'm married. I haven't forgotten that. Bailey: Actually, I was thinking that all of that over there took some pretty big balls. (she tapes his arm)

    • Owen: ...but when things get messy personally, you're gone... off to the woods to drink and grow a beard.

      This is a reference to a few episodes in season 5 after Derek had a hard time with a patient, he went out to the woods and ignored everyone.

      There is a hugely successful BBC show called The Great British Bake Off which has just been commissioned for a US remake by CBS. It will air in 2013. It's an insignificant observation but why would Arizona, at the end of this episode, ask Kali to join her to watch American Bake Off? The show doesn't exist yet and won't air on ABC when it does. What gives?
