    • (Alex walks in Mer's old house) Cristina: God! You scared me. Alex: What the hell are you doing here? Cristina: Oh, Mer gave me the keys. Alex: Mer just sold me this place. Cristina: I know. I want to rent from you. Alex: No, no. I said no roommates. Cristina: Oh, come on. It's fine. It's a big house. We work weird hours. We'll barely see each other. You won't know I'm here. (Alex smiles) What? Alex: You asking me for help. Cristina: Well, when you put it like that, I want to kill myself. Alex: The master's mine. Rent's due on the first. You buy the toilet paper.

    • Alex: I didn't stay to nail the freshmen. Meredith: I know. You stayed for Robbins. Alex: Yeah, and you know what she told me? That I'm a nobody. That I have no one. She told me that I have nothing to show for my life. I want your house, Mer, 'cause... I don't know why. I just-- I just do. Meredith: The chips on the ceiling are from the first Christmas tree we got intern year. You wouldn't know that, because we didn't like you then. And the burn marks on the hardwoods are from flame shots from that stupid party Izzie threw. And the scratch marks on the doorjamb in the study are Zola's height marks since she could stand, and the ones on the other side are from me when I was little. I grew up there, Alex. It's hard for me to change things. And you grew up there, too. So before you go trying to change everything about yourself, you got yourself this far. And you're fine the way you are, and so is the house. So I'm not changing anything. You can, if you want, but I won't. Alex: Okay. We got a deal? (they shake hands) Meredith: We got a deal. (they hug) Alex: What about the dry rot though? Meredith: Would you get away from me with the dry rot?

    • Jackson: Alright, listen-- April: I'm sorry, okay? I'm sure that you would prefer your booty calls to be uncomplicated and void of feeling so I think you should probably just seek them somewhere else, okay? 'Cause I know this is just sex to you. And it's-- Jackson: It's not just sex., I mean, I wish it was. I pretend that it is, 'cause you have a good thing going with Jesus, but it's not. April: It's not? Jackson: No, and stop calling me a car crash or dessert or acting like I'm bumming out Jesus. April: I'm sorry. You-- You made it seem like it was-- Jackson: And stop acting like I don't have any feelings, okay? I have feelings. I have a lot of 'em. April: About what? Jackson: You. About you, April. For you. April: I'm-- I'm so sorry... that I hurt them, your-- your feelings-- Jackson: It's okay. Just-- April: I- I thought it was just sex. Jackson: Mm. Yeah, so did I. April: Okay. Jackson: Have a good night. April: Talk to you tomorrow.

    • Callie: Could you take out your tape recorder? I need to retract my earlier statement or, uh, testimony or whatever. Doctor's Lawyer: Well, I'm not sure anything you said w-- Callie: I lied before. I do believe Dr. Shepherd can operate again. Doctor's Lawyer: Well, that's speculation, not fact. Callie: It's a fact that nerve regeneration is very slow. His nerve may need more time. And there are also new nerve connectors we can try for closer approximation of the severed ends. That's a fact. (turns to Derek) I mean, we can still try an end-to-end transfer. We haven't even tried to take a branch of the M.A.B.C. Doctor's Lawyer: You've give this some thought. Callie: Yeah. Every single night since you dropped that instrument. Derek: Why didn't you mention any of this before? Callie (voice breaking): Because I was scared. Because I felt like I failed you. But you weren't wrong to believe in me, Derek. And you weren't wrong to push. In fact, you should've pushed me harder. We haven't tried everything. And you shouldn't give up until we do.

    • Cristina: You know as well as I do I had no other choice but to-- Owen: Let's wait and see what Russell says. Cristina: If you didn't want me here, you shouldn't have hired me back. Jeff Russell (walks in): Dr. Hunt, Dr. Yang, what happened? Cristina (hands him the chart): I had to go in on your aortic ulcer. He had hemoptysis-- Jeff Russell (reading the chart): Shh. Shh. Owen: The patient is stable now. We can talk about Dr. Yang's decision-- Jeff Russell: Dr. Yang... Thank you. Good save. And thank you, Hunt. You're absolutely right. Now I know why you pushed so hard for her. Great work.

      This is a reference to season two when Izzie decorated the whole house for Christmas, and to season one where Izzie threw a party and invited the entire hospital.
