    • Meredith: She's not answering. Callie: I really want to wait for Cristina. Arizona: Okay, fine. Fine. Let's wait for Cristina. Let's just wait downstairs where it's warm. Callie: No, we can't. The walls have ears. Derek: I'm outta here. Callie: Okay, alright. Um, look, I called this meeting because we can't just keep our heads down and lay low. Okay, we're the reason the hospital's in trouble. We have to do something. We can't let Pegasus take over. We have a responsiblity. Which is why I think we should buy the hospital ourselves.

      I like the romance between Alex and Josephine. I think they are a good match. I hope the romance gets very romantic emotionally but unfortunately the TV writers probably only know how to make a romance sexual, but not emotional in the way I imagine. I will be highly surprised and impressed if the writers are capable of making the romance as emotionally romantic as I imagine.

      I hope real doctors are smarter than the Grey's Anatomy doctors. I have been expecting them to decide to buy the hospital for a few episodes. The show really dragged it on. I think that in real life, the doctors would have discussed the possibility sooner.Really.

      How was buying the hospital themselves not the first thing they did? I mean really.
