  • Quotes (17)

    • Alex (to Jane Doe): Hey. I'm not going to be able to make it to your surgery today. (she reaches for his hand and grabs it) Here's the thing. You were crushed by a pylon. Dozens of people on that ferry boat died, but you're alive, so when I come back to check on you later, you better still be alive. Do you hear me?

    • Cristina (excited): Hey, what was the site like? Was it gory? Was it trauma bonanza? (changes her tone to sound sad) I mean, obviously it was terrible. Alex: I don't talk to thieves. Cristina: What? Alex: You just stole my Jane Doe right out from under me. Cristina: I am not a thief. Man, you balked. You're a balker. Alex: I was thinking. Cristina: Well, again, it's my problem that thinking is such a time consuminng process for you. Alex: I rescued her. I climbed down, I pulled a massive pylon off of her. I got her here alive. Cristina (excited): Pylons, there are pylons on people? Alex: Whatever. Now I get stuck babysitting the patient's families while you get to scrub in. Cristina: Oh, I'm not scrubbing in. I'm stitching up patients in the pit. Alex: Who'd you piss off to get that? Cristina: I happen to be pulling gaping pieces of flesh back together. Alex: Mm. You're stitching, you're just one step closer to knitting your Grandma's sweater. Cristina: Well, at least mine's medical. Alex: You're knitting, I'm pulling pylons off of people.

    • Cristina: I specifically told you that I needed to tell Meredith first. Burke: I was talking to Shepherd and it ... just came out. It's no big deal. Cristina: It is a big deal. Because she's not even gonna care about the fact that I'm getting married, all she's gonna care about is the fact that I didn't tell her myself. Burke: And why didn't you? Cristina: There was a major disaster. Burke: That was 45 minutes after we discussed it. You were with your friends for 45 minutes running triage drills and you weren't compelled to mention it?

    • Addison (to Richard): I dyed my hair blonde... the day after Derek moved out. Change is good. Your marriage is over, you're starting over. So am I.

    • Derek: Do you wanna get married? And I haven't asked. And now we have a problem. Meredith: What? No, I don't wanna get married. You wanna get married? Derek: No. Good, so that's not it, what is it? Meredith: It isn't anything.

    Trivia (5)

    • When we see the helicopter approaching the "Seattle Grace" heli-pad, we can see the KOMO logo and "America's Best Newscast" on the side of the building

    • A stunt person was available on set to take over for the scene where Meredith falls backwards into the water, but actress Ellen Pompeo, who plays Meredith, was determined to do it herself. It ended up being more difficult than she thought, since she had to fall backwards on a mat in a very specific way, but Pompeo says that she enjoyed the experience.

    • Goof: When Alex is heading to the morgue and meets George on the stairs, Alex is heading upstairs. However morgues are usually in the basements of hospitals, and a short time later Alex says, "You didn't check down here right?"

    • Goof: When the gang are in the ambulance Bailey tells them to put their id-cards in front of their jackets. But just prior to that you could clearly see that at least Izzie already did that before she was told to. When the scene shift and Bailey tells them to do it, NONE of them had done it.

    • The scenes filmed at the ferry terminal were NOT filmed in Seattle. Producers visited the real Coleman Dock late December/early January and took images of the entire area. They then took the background shots and filmed the triage scenes in a Los Angeles parking lot.
