  • Derek and Meredith look like a lost case...

    9.5
    Addisson tries to explain to Meredith why she and Derek split up, while at the same time she tries to get back to Derek. A family of three, is taken to the ER after an accident. The father was an alcoholic and he was wasted when he was driving, causing the death of the other driver. Later we learn that he beat his wife, and the only hope for him to survive is for his son to give him half his liver. His son agrees under two conditions: that his mother would tell the cops what really happenned in the accident and that they would move out of the house leaving his dad behind.

    Another man is taken for surgery because he swallowed 10 Jeudie dolls' heads...yeah i know it's gross.

    Meredith and Christina force George to tell Olivia that he had a thing for another woman.moreless
  • Do we know when to say enough !

    9.0
    This episode was really good. The couple coming to hospital and revealing the dark family secret. Crisitna has a hard time dealing with it and Alex shows a good side and now we know that he is a human being. Meredith is on the case with Mr.Hubble a guy who swallowed ten judy dolls. He has his stomach filled with them and he doesn't want to say what is the satisfaction.

    George is tortured by the Nazi because she wants him to do all test possible on already dead patient. Overall good episode just like every other one in Grey's Anatomy ! Seriously !moreless
  • Mnogo gotin episod

    loved this episode because we got to see a little bit of everybody in it. The tension between Shepard and Meredith borders on comical as it is clear that he still loves her. Burke on the other hand finds it more difficult then he thought to assume his new position. George gives Alex his just due. Though George isn't really the tough guy kind he gives it his all against Alex. Baily sure has a good memory og her past with the dolls. Great episode as like the others. The staff or actors work so well together it is amazing.

  • A guy with dolls in his stomach, not drugs!

    9.1
    I love George, he is such a great charachter, when he is asked to work on a dead patient he doesn\'t see the point but then he realises it when he is breaking up with Olivia. Will he make a move on Meredith? I hope he does.



    Christina is still confused about her pregnancy and blames everything on estrogen.



    We find out that Baliey used to collect Judy dolls, and that Alex had an abusive father, you can just see Izzy and Alex getting closer.moreless
  • I love George!

    8.7
    I just love George more and more every episode!! I wish Meredith would see how great he is. He just always seems to do the right thing. "Why do we hump on every dead or dying patient that comes through those doors?..So we can tell their family that we did everything we could." What a brilliant line! I also like that we're finally seeing a more caring side of Alex. We don't really know why he is such a jerk, but at least we see another layer to him. Izzie's clearly starting to see it too. I love the chief's wife!! She is absolutely hysterical! And the doll-head guy. Funny but weird. Another great episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof: The scene when Scotty decided to donate his liver, when Cristina is getting out of the room she's holding nothing in her hands, next shot she's holding a chart.

    • Goof (medically incorrect): Izzie states in the episode that, "The liver is the only organ that regenerates itself," which is false. The skin is the biggest organ of our body and it too regenerates itself. Of course it's possible she was speaking in terms of the connotation of organs inside of our bodies.

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Meredith (opening voiceover): My aunt would say, "say when", and of course, we never did. We don't say when because there is something about the possibility of more... more tequila... more love... more anything... because more is better.

    • Meredith (closing voiceover): There's something to be said about a glass half full. About knowing when to say when. I think it's a floating line. A barometer of need and desire. It's entirely up to the individual. And depends on what's being poured. Sometimes all we want is a taste. Other times there's no such thing as enough, the glass is bottomless. And all we want, is more.

    • Cristina (about Judy Dolls): I dissected them, cut off their arms, shaved their heads.
      Alex: Sounds like there is a second twisted story behind this...
      Cristina: They are sexist, distorted, devil toys creating unrealistic image expectations in the porn driven minds of men.
      Bailey: Swallow a bitter pill this morning, Yang? They're dolls!

    • (After seeing Derek and Burke argue)
      Cristina (to Meredith): Mine's bigger than yours.
      Alex: Whip it out, I'll measure.
      Cristina: Shut up, Alex.

    • (Meredith is lying on the bathroom floor and Cristina is lying in the bathtub)
      Meredith: It's not us, it's them, them and their stupid boy...penises! They didn't tell me they had a wife, they gave me absolutely no warning that they were gonna break up with you.
      Cristina: It's not that Burke broke up with me. It's how he broke up with me. Like it's business, like it's a business transacti--like he's the boss of me.
      Meredith: He is the boss of you.
      Cristina: What's worse is that I care.
      Meredith: I'm gonna throw up again. (rushes over to the toilet on her knees, and Cristina shuts the shower door) No, wait...false alarm. (Cristina opens the shower door again)
      Cristina: The problem is estrogen.
      Meredith: No, the problem is tequila.
      Cristina: You know, I used to be all business, then he goes and gets me pregnant.
      Meredith: With the stupid boy penis.
      Cristina: Ugh, now I'm having hormone surges! He ruined me, I'm ruined. He turned me into this fat stupid pregnant girl, who cares. Estrogen.
      Meredith: Penises. (Izzie and George walk in the bathroom) Penises, Izzie.
      Cristina: Estrogen, George. (she holds out a cup and Izzie puts water in it)
      George (to Izzie): Okay. What'd I miss?
      Izzie: I came home to full out vomit drama. Apparently, she dumped Derek. And her, she's been sleeping with Burke.
      George: I knew that. (turns to Meredith) So, you really broke up with Shepherd?
      Meredith: I feel empty.
      Izzie: Yeah, two hours of vomiting will do that to 'ya.
      Meredith: No, I feel empty.
      Cristina: You're lucky, I feel pissed off.

    • Bailey: If they're dead or dying when they come through those doors, you hump and hump hard, why?
      George: For the experience.
      Bailey: Ah, no, what else? There's something more. (George doesn't answer) And you think on that, you'll get it, it'll come to you.
      (Later)
      George: Why do we hump on every dead or dying patient that comes through those doors?
      Olivia: Experience?
      George: So we can tell their family that we did everything we could.

    • Richard (to George): Call three times a day.
      Adele: Do not call three times a day.
      Richard: And if my wife doesn't put you through--
      Adele: I won't put you through.
      Richard: Keep calling until she does.
      George: Yes, sir.

    • (Looking at the xray of the guy who swallowed ten Judy doll heads)
      Burke: Drugs?
      Meredith: Ten Judy dolls heads.
      Burke: Seriously?
      Meredith: Yes.
      Patricia: I can see their little faces. (higher pitched voice) "Help, let me out."

    • Richard: Okay, that is it.
      Derek: That is not it, Richard. Hold still.
      Richard: How can I hold still when you're poking me.
      Derek: I have to poke you to discharge you.
      Adele: What makes you think he wants to be discharged? Derek, don't you know that this hospital will crumble unless Richard is here holding up the walls.
      Richard: Adele. You're supposed to be in the Virgin Islands.
      Adele: Oh, you are in five-kinds of trouble, Mr. Man. (kisses his cheek) You had brain surgery and didn't tell me.
      Richard: Well, it's just a small pro--procedure.
      Adele: It was brain surgery.
      Richard: Well, I didn't wanna ruin your vacation.
      Adele: You don't know what a vacation is, how would you know how to ruin it?
      Richard: Well, anyway, how did you find-- (turns to Derek) You called my wife?
      Derek: You called mine. Look, having someone home with you is the only way I'm letting you outta here today.
      Richard: Fine. (Addison shows up in the doorway)
      Addison: I thought I saw a fablous looking woman walk by.
      Adele (walks over and hugs her): Addison, hey. (Derek gives Webber a look) I told Richard I knew you and Derek would get back together.
      Addison: Uh...actually, I'm here on a case--
      Derek: Addison, and I are over Adele.
      Addison: It's not like we're divorced.
      Derek: Practically divorced.
      Adele (to Addison): You've had counselling?
      Derek: We've had adultery, that was enough.
      Addison (sighs, annoyed): I'll call you later okay? (she walks away)
      Adele: You should give her a chance, Derek.
      Derek: It's good to see you. (kisses her cheek) Keep him in line. (walks out)

    • Olivia: I think it's always better to hear bad news first hand. I know I'd like to talk to the doctor who called it, get some answers, so I could get on with my life

    • Adele: It's always something isn't it? Some emergency surgery, some annoying administrative problem. (Burke looks at her as he signs the time cards on the round table in the room) Being chief is a lot like being an intern. The work never stops. You know when I found out Richard had a tumor you know what I felt? Relieved. (Burke is looking at the computer screen not really listening) I was hoping he'd finally be forced to retire. (he looks up at Adele at this piece of news, intrigued) Ah. That has your attention doesn't it? How we both would like that to happen. (she grabs her bag) I could finally book a vacation for two. (she chuckles) You know you're perfect for this job Preston. Unattached, obsessive. This hospital, this job, it's enough for you isn't it?

    • Addison: Dr. Grey, can I speak with you for a moment? (Meredith looks at Bailey)
      Bailey: Don't look at me for help. (Addison and Meredith walk away)
      Addison: I assume he told you why he left me.
      Meredith (sighs): Dr. Shepherd, with all due respect, this has nothing to do with me.
      Addison: Really? So you didn't take him back? Good girl.
      Meredith: And in the future, I'd appreciate it if we'd keep our relationship strictly professional.
      Addison: Meredith, sometimes people do desperate things to get someone's attention. There are two sides to every story.

    • Mrs. Seibert: You think I'm sick for wanting me to save my husband. Don't you?
      Cristina: I think … you're feeling very emotional and when we're feeling emotional sometimes it's, sometimes it's hard to keep a level head and consider all the facts. ... Your husband killed a man on the highway today. He almost killed you and your son. Those are the facts.
      Mrs. Seibert: Have you ever been in love Doctor? (Cristina looks at her) Have you?
      Cristina: Love has its limits.

    • Derek: Just when the day was improving.
      Addison: You told Meredith what happened.
      Derek: I did. What'd you tell her?
      Addison: Sometimes people do desperate things to attract attention.
      Derek: Wow, that's your side of this? That I didn't pay you enough attention? Is that what you were thinking when you got naked with my best friend?
      Addison: Well, at that point, I wasn't thinking at all, Derek, I was just scratching an itch. We got succesful, you and me. We got busy and we got lazy. We didn't even bother to fight anymore, Derek, and Mark was there and I missed you and now I'm sorry. I'm more sorry than you could possibly imagine, but at least I'm talking to you about it.
      Derek: I'm a sink with an open drain, Addy.

    • Meredith: You're stalking me. Stop it.
      Derek: Did we not communicate last night?
      Meredith: Yes.
      Derek: Did you hear what I was saying?
      Meredith: Your wife screwed your best friend.
      Derek: And from that point on she no longer existed to me anymore.
      Meredith: You had marital amnesia?
      Derek: No. Come on I bared my soul to you last night.
      Meredith: It's not enough.
      Derek: How can it not be enough?
      Meredith: When you waited 2 months to tell me and I had to find out by her showing up all leggy and fabulous and telling me herself. (Cristina walks by them, Izzie and George watch from a distance) I am a sink with an open drain. Anything you say runs straight out. (storms off)
      George: She probably could have picked a better metaphor.
      Izzie: Give her a break, she's got a hangover.
