    • Arizona: My surgery got pushed. I can't pick up the short rib. Mark: The butcher closes at six, right? Arizona: Oh, we could roast a chicken. Mark: Yes. Callie: Could we please shut up about dinner? Please. Arizona: Oh, sorry.

    • Richard: I saw Kepner take a mouse from that room, now what's goin' on? Meredith: I don't know anything. Richard: You blinked. Now, you know something. Is something wrong with the device? Meredith: I really shouldn't talk about it. Richard: Grey. Meredith: Bailey's not gonna find out about it? Richard: Bailey locked me out of my own mouse lab, I'm not telling her crap. Meredith: Some of the mice are hyperglosemic. We're running tests to try and find out why. Richard: Okay, Grey, here's what you do, get a healthy mouse, run some labs and compare the stats. Can you do that? Meredith: Well, April's being a little... Richard: Oh, you can handle Kepner, Grey. Now, I'm on call so page me when you get the results.

    • Cristina (after her phone goes off): Oh, that's Owen. Duty calls. Meredith: Are you two talking yet or is it just sex? Cristina: Not just sex. Hot, dirty, stand on my head sex. Meredith: I'll take that as a 'no'. Cristina: Come on, who cares if we talk. Besides, if you wanna talk about somethin', how about the fact that you're wasting your fifth year playing around with vaginas and mice, huh? Wanna talk about that? Meredith: Do you really stand on your head? Cristina: I'm very talented.

    • Meredith: I really don't have time for this. Two more moms just came in. April: Yeah, but as long as no one is crowning, they'll be fine. (they walk into her office) What are you doing? Cristina: Uh, researching a new surgery for my neck guy. April: What are you feeding my mouse? Q is diabetic. A donut could kill him. Cristina: So then why is he in your office? April: So Meredith can run tests on him. Cristina: Are you really gonna do her grunt work? Meredith: No. Bailey blames me for Richard losing his trial. The last thing she wants is for me to work on it. April: Which is why you're doing it in secret. Cristina: Okay, that is the worst idea I've ever heard. Meredith: Seriously. April: I am your chief resident, Dr. Grey! (Mer and Cristina laugh) Which means if you cross me, I will make your life a living hell. I will put you on-call every night. I will assign you dumb interns and I will make sure that you get every exploding bowel and rotting limb that comes into this hospital. Meredith: Okay, relax. I'll do it. April: Okay. ... It's 'cause I made my voice different, right? Th-That's why you-- Cristina: Go away before you embarrass yourself.

    • April: Alex, I need you to cover the E.R tonight. Alex: No. April: It's the E.R., people will die if we're not there. Alex: Which will be your fault, not mine. April: Alex, please, can't you just be a person for a second? Alex: See? This is why you don't deserve this job. You're bad at it. You get all stressed out and frantic and nobody wants to listen to you. You have no authority and your voice, it gets (imitating her) all high and nasally like this when you're nervous. It's annoying. (normal voice) You're annoying. So, no, I can't be a person for a second. Deal with your own crap.
