    • Catherine: Tell me about plastics. Jackson: Mom, I'm tired, alright? I don't want to spend all night trying to convince you that it's a legitamite speciality. Catherine: I'm asking you to share your interests. Or you can tell me about this girl that you shipped off to another time zone in honor of my arrival. Jackson: Do you blame me? Honestly, I mean look how you were all over Sloan-- Catherine: Sloan can take it. You saying this Lexie can't? Jackson: I like her. A lot. I don't want to start this. Catherine: I'm gonna medel one more time. Jackson: See, if only I could believe that we-- Catherine: Sloan. Be careful with him, if you really like her. Jackson: Why? Catherine: Because he talks about her the way you should, that's why. Jackson: Yeah, they were a thing. It's over now. Catherine: Are you in love with her? Jackson (smiles): We're not gonna talk about this.

    • Meredith: Hey, where you going? Lexie: Uh, to visit Molly for two days. Meredith: Oh, that's great. Lexie: Yeah, Jackson arranged it. It was a surprise. Meredith: Oh. Lexie: What do you mean by that? Meredith: Nothing. Just 'Oh'. Lexie: 'Cause it sounded like you meant 'Really? He arranged for you to go see your sister at the exact time his mother's coming into town? Guess he's really not that into you otherwise he'd want you to meet his mother like a normal person.' Meredith: No. You had a mother. Jackson and I had surgeons who procreated. It's just a little complicated. Lexie: I- I shouldn't go, right? Meredith: No, I think that it's sweet that he wants you to get out of the line of fire. Lexie (hearing a car beep): That's my cab. I-I should stay. Meredith: I think you should probably get out while you have the chance.

    • Henry: Is Cristina coming? Owen: Uh, she can't she sends her apologies. Henry: Ah, this many doctors and only three of you stood up. That's not bad.

    • Ben: Dr. Bailey. Bailey: Dr. Warren. Um, look, you're gonna hear about something because everyone around here hears about everything. Eli and I ended things, the nurse. You're gonna think that it has something to do with you and for the sake of clarity, I would like to be extremely clear when I say that it doesn't have anything to do with you, at all. Are we clear? (Ben smiles) It doesn't have anything to do with you. Ben (smiling): Mmhmm. (turns to walk away) Bailey: Ben Warren, I am being very clear with you. Are you listening to me? Ben (smiling): G'Night, Miranda Bailey. See you tomorrow. Bailey: No, that is not what I said. (Ben waves to her) Benjamin Warren!

    • Catherine: My son tells me I have trouble admitting when I'm wrong. So, this is the place where I should say, that was an impressive save. Mark: Of course it was. He's a good kid, probably because you've give him such a complex but whatever the reason, let him find his own way. He'll do good. Catherine: Thank you. Mark: Oh, and don't count out Lexie Grey until you meet her. She's smart, she's beautiful, she's perfect. A guy couldn't do any better.
