  • Quotes

    • (Alex walks up to his door, Jo is sitting outside)
      Alex: Oh, man. You're killing me here. I'm trying to leave you alone. I'm trying to get out of your freakin' life, but you're everywhere. And now you show up to tell me the same thing? Well, guess what.
      Jo (looks up at him, her face is bruised and she's crying): Can I stay here? Please.

    • (Having a tea party with Zola)
      Derek (about Zola): Oh, my god. She's so perfect.
      Meredith (laughs): Yep.
      Derek: What if he's a monster?
      Meredith: He's not gonna be a monster.
      Derek: What if he hates her? What if he steals her toys?
      Meredith: Well, he is gonna steal her toys because that's what kids do.
      Derek: Look. She's just so happy. (to Zola) You don't have any idea what's gonna happen, do you?
      Meredith: I think she will handle him just fine. You're wearing a princess crown.
      Derek: I am.
      Meredith: She's very good at getting people to submit to her will.

    • Cristina: You've changed. You want a kid. Don't you?
      Owen: I want you.
      Cristina: Owen--
      Owen: I want... you. (they kiss)

    • Ben: Miranda. Open the door. (Bailey opens the door) I got on the plane as soon as I heard.
      Bailey: Who called you?
      Ben: It doesn't matter.
      Bailey: Yeah, it does. Your intern exams are coming up... s-soon.
      Ben: And I'm your husband. Being there for you is my main job now. There's no need to keep doing things by yourself anymore. Come here. (they hug) This wasn't your fault.
      Bailey: Yeah. Yeah, it was my fault.
      Ben: No, you were cleared.
      Bailey: No, it was my infection. I put my hands in those patients. And they died. I operated on them, and they died... (voice breaking) A son... and a mother, and a... and a teacher. I knew their families. And they all died because of me. Now they want me to go back in an O.R. I mean, they-- they say that it-- it doesn't happen again, but nobody knows that. I-I've been um, testing myself. And, uh, testing myself and testing myself. But it doesn't go away, the... um, feeling. I f-feel so... dirty. (crying) Just all the time. So dirty. They all died... because of me. They died.

    • Ben: Hey.
      Richard: You made the flight?
      Ben: Yeah, just barely. Thanks for the call.
      Richard: Sure. She needs you.

    • Heather: You put a chain-sawed lady back together while I suffered through a moyamoya.
      Shane: A moyamoya fix is amazing. Using the omentum for revascularization-- (Heather pretends to snore)
      Heather: You still trying to figure out how the trick worked?
      Shane: I think I figured out where the trapdoor is, but I still don't understand when the switch happens.
      Magician: You don't want to know, kid. Trust me. It'll ruin it.

    • Lauren: Hey. I was hoping I'd run into you again today.
      Arizona: Um... Has there been a change in Tyler's surgery?
      Lauren: No. People tell you all the time that you have really pretty eyes? What are they, hazel? Blue? (laughs) They're blue.
      Arizona: I'm married. I'm happily married. Um, you met her, uh, earlier today. Dr. Torres. Ortho. Hot. Brunette. And, uh, wow, talk about eyes. Pretty eyes. Hers are just... magical. And, um, th-- it-- I'm-- and I'm married. Also, I have one leg.
      Lauren: I know. Do you know how many Arizona Robbins there are on the internet? One. See you tomorrow.

    • Jackson (walks in the bar with Alex and notices Stephanie): Oh, crap.
      Alex: Good luck. (walks off)
      Jackson (walking over to Stephanie): I know. I know. I have not been...
      Stephanie: No, shut up. Shut up.
      Jackson: The most available or attentive--
      Stephanie: Shut up. Shut up.
      Jackson: I know-- I'm just--
      Stephanie: Shut the hell up. Right now I need for you to not talk, okay? It's 'cause you're head of the hospital now, right? That's why you haven't called me in 11 days. Because I hate myself. I hate that I know how many days it's been since we hung out. And I hate myself even more for asking you about it, like some needy... boring, boy-obsessed little girl... who I'm not. Let's be clear about that. But I d-- I-- I do need to know why it's been 11 days. Now you can talk.
      Jackson: Because I'm the head of the hospital. (Stephanie goes to leave) Come on.
      Stephanie: That's no excuse for standing me up.
      Jackson: You just said--
      Stephanie: I don't care. I deserve to be treated better. So... you know, do that. 'Cause I just-- (Jackson kisses her)

    • Alex: Hey, you want to go split a few dozen pitchers?
      Jackson: Yes. Yes, I do. (over hearing Jo and Jason fighting) What is up with that?
      Alex: I don't know and I don't care. I told her the guy was a douche. Whatever. Let's go.

    • Owen: Hey. You want to tell me what happened?
      Ethan: I just... wanted to go to sleep.
      Owen: Ethan, you know how dangerous it is to take medicine that isn't yours? You could've died. Never take any pills without a parent's permission.
      Ethan: I don't think I have any parents anymore.
      Owen: Hey. Hey, that's... That is not true. Your dad is...
      Ethan: Can't you try something else? Why aren't you trying anything?
      Cristina: We are. We're trying everything we can think of to wake him up, Ethan. We haven't given up on him. Neither should you.

    • Meredith (standing outside Bailey's lab): Dr. Bailey. I put a woman back together today. She was split in two, and I fixed her. Dr. Webber and I-- We fixed her. You know, I don't know what's going on with you two, but you need to stop it. It's childish and selfish. You need to stop. Dr. Bailey.

    • April: Hey, you want to go to Joe's?
      Jackson: No... actually, thanks. I- I have something. I have plans. So...
      April: Oh, you know, I just remember I'm supposed to meet up with Matthew anyway, so... maybe another time?
      Jackson: Yeah. Good night.

    • Jo: Alex, come on. Can we at least try to talk to each other? I'd like to feel like I don't have to avoid pediatrics, that we could still work together.
      Alex: So, that's what you're worried about, not being on my service? Nice.
      Jo: No. That-- That's not--
      Alex: I've done nothing but try and help you.
      Jo: Really? Because every time you say anything, my life gets worse. Things with Jason were perfect--
      Alex: I'm sorry if your boyfriend's an idiot and can't deal with your past. But that's on you. Obviously, you like them like that. As for me, I'm sick of crazy chicks with problems.
      Jo: Stay out of my business, okay?
      Alex: Oh, don't worry. I'm out.

    • (They are all lined up outside the woman's bathroom waiting for Bailey)
      Jackson (walks up): Oh, good. I didn't miss it.
      Callie: Nope, just in time, I think. (Bailey opens the door, and starts walking by them)
      Cristina: Well, it was her idea.
      Callie: No, you won't come out of the lab. You gave us no other choice.
      Arizona: Bailey, just hear us out.
      Cristina: Yeah, um, Avery wants to apologize.
      Jackson: We all want to apologize.
      Meredith: Yes, he screwed up. He knows that. He should've had your back more.
      Callie: Derek, go.
      Derek: Yeah, yeah. You know, I would be just as mad as you are. And you've seen me mad. I hang out in the woods and I drink myself into a stupor. But the thing I've learned from hiding out is, it doesn't work. And, Bailey, we need you. This hospital does not work without you. (Bailey walks into her lab and locks the door)
      Callie (pounds on the door): Guess what, lady. This isn't even your lab. Okay? We bought it for you. (turns to everyone) Was that too much?
      Derek: Yeah.

    • Arizona: Um, this is Dr. Boswell. She's consulting on the sims baby.
      Callie: Uh, hi. Dr. Callie Torres, ortho. Do you mind if I sit in? You-- You see these, like, never.
      Lauren: No, yeah, yeah. Please come in. The more, the merrier, yeah. Um, so then I will take the calvarial bone graft from the... paretial skull and then use it to form the base of the skull. I mean, you can use synthetics, but when I can use his own bone... farm local, right Dr. Torres?
      Callie: Yeah.
      Lauren: After that, it's really just a standard cleft lip repair, which I'm sure, you and Dr. Avery can do in your sleep.
      Arizona: Oh, well-- Yeah, but since you're here, uh, we, uh, we could watch and learn.
      Lauren: Alright, then. In that case, I'll try to show off a little. (they laugh)
      Callie (whispers, to Arizona): I'm a little bit in love with her.

    • April: Nobody likes a dumb Trixie, but this surgery is so much fun, I kind of love her for burning a hole in her stomach. Metzenbaum, please. I know. I know you're-- you're thinking I'm an awful person.
      Jackson: I was actually admiring your technique.
      April: Oh.
      Jackson: Do not get a big head about it.
      April: You should talk. Fancy plastics fellow who also happens to own a hospital.
      Jackson: Which means I spend half my time in meetings and not in the O.R. you know, I just flew out a facial reconstruction specialist that... I don't know. She gets to fly around the world and perform miracles.
      April: You're holding this place together, Jackson. That's pretty miraculous.
      Jackson: Thank you.
      April: You're welcome.

    • (Watching the video of the magician sawing the woman in half)
      Shane: So his wife goes in the box. But somewhere, there's another girl.
      Jo: Where?
      Shane: That's what I can't figure out.
      Heather: She's already in the box.
      Shane: I know, but where? There's no room.
      Jo: Like my new apartment.
      Stephanie: Ut oh. Living with Peckwell not everything you hoped it'd be? Oh, my god. Here comes the chainsaw. Ohhhh!
      Jo: Oh, I can't watch that.
      Heather: Oh, my god. That's amazing.
      Shane: Oh, I can't unsee that.

    • (Cristina is on the phone, speaking French)
      Stephanie: Are you still on the phone with France about the coma fix?
      Cristina: No, I'm booking us a vacation in Nice. You want a facial the first day? (returns back to her phone call, then hangs up) Their trial was specific to coma patients with head trauma.
      Stephanie: Mm. Mexico City's trial focused on comas triggered by diabetic ketoacidosis, so--
      Cristina: So you have nothing.

    • Callie: By the way, uh, it's not just me. Bailey hates all of us.
      Richard: Not now, Torres.
      Callie: She won't even turn around when someone comes to the door. I mean, you'd-- you'd probably get her to open it if it were you, Richard.
      Meredith: That's probably true.
      Richard: I said not now.
      Callie: I'm just saying, you're probably the one person who'd get through to her.
      Richard: No! I am the one person Bailey does not want to see right now. I hurt her, deeply, and I'm not sure I'll be able to repair it. So let's leave it alone. And let's focus, please, on saving this woman's life.
      Callie: Sorry, Richard. I'll come back to the pelvis when you're done.

    • April: Jackson... I am so sorry about the other day. Just... blaming you for everything, my whole crappy life. I'm just... You know, I'm crazy.
      Jackson (chuckles): I know. I know you are. But you're about to do a Roux-en-Y. I'd say your life's pretty good right now.

    • Callie (outside Bailey's lab): Miranda? (knocks) Miranda, it's Callie. How you doing? Can I, uh, can I come in? (knocks again) Bailey. I just thought that you should know that it was Jackson who called the C.D.C. I-I mean, we all, you know, we all approved it, but I never thought you did anything wrong. I never thought you did anything wrong. It was-- It was to clear your name. And-- Which is now clear, so yay! I feel better. Do you feel better? Bailey? Bailey, seriously? I'm standing right here-- you're not gonna ignore me, are you? Bailey.

    • Cristina (standing outside Bailey's lab): No, I know what you're thinking. E.E.G. I've already done one, and he's not having seizures. So why hasn't he woken up? Yeah. I-I-I've asked every doctor in the hospital for their opinion, and no one has any ideas. Oh, my god. You're right. Go global. Bailey, you're a genius. (smiles and starts walking away as Callie and Arizona are walking up)
      Callie: Oh, Cristina. How'd it go with Bailey?
      Cristina: So great.
      Callie: Did you get her to talk?
      Cristina: No. Why? (Callie sighs, she walks away)
      Callie: Okay. Just remember, bright and sunshiny.
      Arizona (knocks on the lab doors): Hi, Bailey. It's Arizona. Listen, I understand that you're mad. But you know, there's no reason for you to be mad alone. You can be mad at us. You can-- You can yell and scream and throw things, cause we can take.
      Callie: She's a grown woman giving us the silent treatment. It's a cry for help.
      Arizona: Or it's her way of saying 'Leave me alone.' (walks away)
      Callie: Fine. You want to give me the silent treatment? Well, I can give it right back. ... Oh, come on, Bailey. Just talk to me.

    • Cristina: Aw. Someone's got his bummer face on.
      Alex: Everywhere I turn, she's there.
      Cristina: Oh, so we'll walk this way.
      Meredith: Oh, but I have to go that way.
      Cristina: Yeah, but Alex's little broken heart needs to go the long way.
      Meredith: Oh, okay. Well, if it's for Alex's little broken heart.
      Alex: Alex's little broken heart wishes you both would shut up. (walks away)
      Meredith: So I'm worried about Bailey. You know, she's mad at all of us.
      Cristina: Why is she mad at us?
      Meredith: The C.D.C thing. She's locked herself in that lab and will not come out and will not talk to anyone, and that's weird for her.
      Cristina: I'll talk to Bailey.
      Meredith: Yeah, see if you can get through to her.

    • Cristina: So let's say I pursued a different course of therapy.
      Stephanie: Okay. You--
      Cristina: Don't speak. Patient suffered an aortic transection, miraculously repaired by me, and then had a post-op inferior M.I that led to cardiac arrest. So I induced hypothermia. Let's say, hypothetically that I did not. What else could I have done? Don't answer that. I could've taken him straight to the cath lab. But no, I could not have because had he had heparin after his surgery, that would've caused his aorta to blow. And then I'd have to tell the kid that daddy's a goner 'cause I blew it? No! So I was right. Right?
      Stephanie: Right.
      Cristina: Oh, I'm not asking you.

    • Callie (walks up, notices Arizona's coffee cup): Who's Lauren?
      Arizona: What? (Callie points to Arizona's coffee) Oh, god. It's actually a funny story. I was--
      Callie: Did you know that Webber is still taking all of Bailey's patients?
      Arizona: Oh, yeah. She's probably holed up in the genome lab because of that C.D.C thing.
      Callie: Well, we're not the ones who called them. If she's gonna be pissed at anyone, it should be him. (motions to Jackson)
      Jackson: Who's pissed at me now?
      Callie: Well, you called the C.D.C and now Bailey hates all of us.
      Jackson: We all called the C.D.C.
      Callie: I didn't. (to Arizona) We should, uh, go and talk to her.
      Arizona: Oh, no. I have a consult.
      Callie: How can you go work when you Bailey is mad at you? (walks off with Arizona)
      Stephanie (walks off): Hey.
      Jackson: Hey. Oh, god. I totally forgot about last night. We were supposed to have dinner and sex. Dinner. Or just the dinner. Uh, maybe the sex was all in my head. Or it could've been in your mind, too, but it doesn't matter because it didn't happen. I forgot. But I remember right now. And I feel terrible.
      Stephanie: Okay.
      Jackson: I'm gonna make it up to you tonight.
      Stephanie: Wh--
      Jackson: Yes. Tonight.

    • Derek: You know, Brooks is on my moyamoya case, but if you need her here--
      Meredith: Well, I have Ross, and-- and I paged Bailey, so you can take her.
      Heather: What? But she's cut in half. This is gonna be amazing.
      Derek: You know what else is amazing? A moyamoya.

    • (Arizona is at the coffee cart, holding a coffee)
      Lauren: I'm Lauren.
      Arizona: Um, okay. Hi, Lauren.
      Lauren: No, I'm the Lauren as in 'Lauren' on the coffee you're way over sugaring.
      Arizona: Oh, ay! Yikes. I am-- I am so sorry. You know what? I didn't even look up there. I just grabbed it so... (laughs)
      Lauren: It's okay. Really, it's not a problem. (the coffee girl puts another coffee on the window) This you?
      Arizona: Yeah, that's me.
      Lauren (takes a sip): Well, now it's me. See you around, I hope.

    • Meredith: (opening voiceover) There's no such thing as magic, as far as we know. And while, as surgeons, we study the secrets behind the human body's intricate network of cells, tissues, and organs... When things go wrong, horribly, horribly wrong there are only so many tricks we have up our sleeves to put a body back together. But there is a kind of power more of a spell, really. And when we get it right, it can be pretty damn magical.

    • Meredith: (closing voiceover) As surgeons, we are no stranger to the breaks and tears in the human body. In fact, we sacrifice the better part of our 20s learning every possible way to make it whole again. But there are some wounds a surgeon can't repair. Not on our own. It takes a kind of power we just don't have. There's no such thing as magic. Not in the traditional abracadabra, genie-in-a-bottle kind of way. But there is a magic in knowing that while not everything can be repaired, most everything can be survived.
