    • Alex: Hey, any word back on my interviews? Arizona: Uh, yeah, I'm workin' on it. Alex: You've been working on it for a couple of weeks now. Arizona: Well, you're an acquired taste, like bleu cheese. Some people love it and some people can't stand to be in the same room as it. They think it's stinky. Alex: So now I'm stinky cheese?

    • April (about Cristina's gift basket): Oh, this is getting ridiculous. Jackson (takes card): The N.I.H? Since when does the N.I.H bribe residents to come work for them? Cristina: Oh, they don't. Except when you're me-- A god. (Alex's eats a cookie from her basket) Hey! Alex: Cookie's stale. Cristina: Aw, Karev, is this hard for you, having to beg for interviews while some of us just sit back and get wooed? Alex: No one is begging. April: Oh, yeah, maybe you should. Maybe that way, you'd actually get an interview. Cristina: Ha! I love mean Kepner. Alex: I got an interview. April: Oh, really? Where? Alex: At... places. April: Uh huh. Alex: Whatever! Look, this sucks, okay. I mean, we got boards in a couple of weeks and now they want us to go on freakin' job interviews? There's only so much crap a guy can have thrown at him before he snaps.

    • Meredith: How was Dallas? Cristina: Ugh, bad. I can operate circles around the head of the program. I'm sick of all this schlepping. From now on, they're gonna have to come to me. (Mer laughs) How was yours? Boston, right? Meredith: Uh, San Francisco. I'm supposed to leave for Boston tonight, but I think I'm gonna cancel. Cristina: What? Only an idiot cancels The Brigham. And didn't Bailey set that up for you? No. Uh uh. She's gonna kill you. Derek: Hi. Meredith: Hey, do you need a ride or is Owen, um... Cristina: Picking me up? No. Derek: So how'd it go? Meredith: It was great! (to Zola) Hi, baby girl. Cristina: Uh, your idiot wife wants to cancel her interview with at The Brigham. Derek: No, you don't cancel an interview with the best general surgery program in the country. Cristina: Uh-huh. That's what I said. Meredith: Why would we move? You've almost finished the house, and you have a job here. Derek: There are other homes and jobs in Boston. You're going, end of discussion. Cristina: Good husband. Okay, let's go. (takes Zola) I will ride in the back with my girl.

    • Meredith: (closing voiceover) Its one of those things people say: you can't move on until you've let go of the past. Letting go is the easy part. It's the moving on that's painful. So sometimes we fight it; try and keep things the same. Things can't stay the same though. At some point you just have to let go, move on. Because no matter how painful it is, its the only way we grow.

    • Meredith: (opening voiceover) When you're a kid you always want things to stay the same -- the same teacher, the same house, the same friends. Being a surgeon is no different. You get used to the same attendings, the same scrub nurses, the same hospital. Of course, that all changes the minute fifth year comes around. And you have to find a new job.
