  • A very powerful episode!

    10
    I loved this episode, it could be one of my faves of the season. The whole concept was good, the hospital was being compared to a high school. One great thing about this episode was that Bailey had a big part, her speeches are great as Gerorge says and she is really funny. So Izzie and Georges relationship seems to be over but is there friendship? I don't know, I hope not. Sloan being compared to someones dad by that teenage girl was very funny and his face was priceless. Now Thatcher, still annoys the hell out of me. I loved Lexis speech to Meredith, everything she said was so powerful. I hope they give us a bit more info on Thatchers drinking problem. So a potential love interest for Dereck, weirdly I kinda liked this woman, Rose I think it was, though she was hardly in it. Can't wait to see how Meredith and Derecks relationship will go. Sydney was funny and the whole idea of her dating Dereck was funny too. I've actuallty warmed to the idea of Alex and Lexi so I hope they start dating soon. Cristina was as usual funny, the brown noser remarks was great. So this episode was brilliant and I can't wait for more season 4 of Grey's!moreless
  • This is one of the episodes that makes Grey's so lovable.

    A school bus crash leaves many students injured. One boy, Danny, is left with a pencil stuck in his eye. Much to the devastation of his only and best friend, Marissa, he does not make it through the surgery. This sees an outburst of fake sadness care of the classmates that never knew him. The students force the doctors to look at who the were in high school, a somewhat painful reflection for some.



    This was truly Grey's back at it's finest. It contained all the elements that made Grey's so lovable in the first place: identifiable drama, heartbreak, comedy, lust and interesting patients and cases. It was interesting to see who everyone used to be and that Miranda Bailey actually did, and does, have a weakness. I felt sorry for her. People always expect so much from her, and she always delivers, yet the second she slips up people are jumping down her throat. This episode also led me to hate Dr. Hahn. Who does she think she is...but why didn't Bailey stand up to her or her old high school "friend"? I did enjoy her speech to Derek, I love all of her speeches. When she broke down it showed the little girl behind the tough women exterior, and I felt for her.

    Also felt for Meredith in this episode. It was depressing for her (and me) that all the things she always wanted to hear from Thatcher was just the alcohol talking.

    Mostly I felt for Marissa. Losing the only person in the world who understood her! I was so proud when Izzie told those girls to get out of Danny's room, then went on to comfort Marissa.

    This was just such a touching and memorable episode.moreless

  • In this episode, they show what kind of teenagars are there in the world. Who didn't feel identified with (at least) one of the teenagers? The best episode of the season so far, WAY better than the previous seven episodesmoreless

    Before reading this, I have to say that I'm from Argentina , I'm 16, and the educational system has some diferences. Any thoughts written about this episode have to do with my society. If you agree or not, have in mind that my society is different from yours (or maybe not in all ways) and I'd like to have some kind of feedback about this episode with anyone who'd like to share their past or recent experiences.



    Even though the topic of Mer's narration is repeated (in 02x18"yesterday"), this episode is excelent.

    Because I'm a teenager myself, I felt like at least three of the teenagers in this episode, and I have to say that (except the cheerleading, because such thing doesn't exist here) anyone who hadn't feel like any of these teenagers in the past, have no idea of how hard is to be a teenager this days.

    True, there will always be some people isolated because they decide to be this way, there will also be "freaks", the slutties, the tortured because of other people's words and actions (and that may change things about the way they are because of the need of fitting in, which is, in my opinion, overrated) , the hot boys and girls who get around like all the time, the fake girls that say they gonna be best friends but later they betray you and it's like a vicious circle.

    Like Alex and Derek said (paraphrasing), "being a teenager sucks". Our teenagers discriminate more, they are blind because of new (unnecesary) technologies, fashion, silly relationships, and specially because of the "I want this and I will have it now (asking daddy to give me money!)" way of thinking (like babies...). Seriously, mobile phones, laptops, extravagant clothing (which is a repeated pattern), same hair looks and all those shallow items are keeping us really away from truth and the real world.

    Do we need to discriminate because of people begin different? Do we need all those shallow props to fit in? Why do we need to fit in anyway?



    Well, this episode shows the aforementioned items. I didn't like how Mark is being treated (everyone is turning him down!), how Hahn is annoying for no reason at all... Gizzie drama is just frustrating... But yesterday I watched a (little) stronger Meredith. She doesn't have to hate Lexie anymore...(maybe she did in the first two episodes).

    I liked Jeff Perry's performance, but I hate Thatcher.

    Poor Miranda, I felt really bad about her... There are always people that do other's homework just to like them, or to be seen or noticed... But those lazy ones only take advantage of that need of being noticed. You have to get through it, and realize that they're using you. Marcus deserved the speech of his life, he's a dog! People who want their homework made by others: Start doing this for yourselves! People who other's homework to fit in: open your eyesd! they're using you! Don't keep everything in, say what you feel!

    That nurse...that was odd, I'd like to see Derek hanging out with that nurse in order to make Meredith use her brain and realize she can't live without him...



    It was an excelent episode... The first 9 of this season! I hope the next ones are as good as this one!moreless
  • Bailey meets up with an old high school friend when he winds up in Seattle Grace. Rumors fly about George and Izzie's relationship problems. Callie gives Yang advice about Dr. Hahn. Derek tries to date other women.moreless

    The episode starts with Derek and Sydney having a drink at Joe's. God that woman is so weird! Sydney is such a flake. The episode revolves around clicks, and whether or not we truly grow up when we become adults. A bus crashes and lands some people in the hospital. One girl, a cheerleader, comes in with cuts on her face and some broken bones. When she said "I broke my a**?" I thought that was cute. When she finds out that one of her "friends" is replacing her as team captain and she might not be able to have things go back to the way they were before, she feels like her life is over. However, Callie tries to bring some insight and tells the girl that she'll probably be ok. Mark struggles with his age during this episode after some teenie boppers tell him he looks like one of their fathers. George and Izzie are having problems with their relationship and George starts avoiding her. They both admit that they want their best friend back so they can talk to each other. I wonder if this is the end of their intimate relationship already. Dr. Bailey gets to reminice with an old high school friend when he shows up and they learn there's something wrong with his heart. After Miranda saves his life, he still doesn't really see her for who she is. After George brings it to her attention that the man is taking advantage of her, she realizes George is right and that he even did it in high school. This upsets her and she takes it out on Derek. A nurse named Rose tells Derek that the staff at Seattle Grace is clicky, and backs this up with the fact that she's assisted on 36 of his surgeries and he never even noticed her. The two share a couple moments that we really don't think anything of, but i wonder if we're going to see more of Rose in the future. Later on at Joe's, Sydney and Derek agree that they aren't really meant for each other, and Derek leaves with Meredith, but he did notice Rose's presance. Meredith's father winds up in the hospital drunk because he had cut his hand. After he tells Meredith all the things she wished he'd said to her before now, she confronts Lexie and tells her she should keep a better eye on their father. Lexie puts Meredith in her place by giving Meredith a play by play of all the things her father probably told her, and backs it up by saying he does the exact same thing to her. Meredith gets upset and has to have a moment with the chief to calm down. Yang was still not impressing Dr. Hahn this episode as Hahn made obviously clear. Hahn also had some choice words to say to Miranda, such as calling her a blithering idiot. Finally, Callie gives Cristina some advice and tells her to back off a little because she's coming off as a brown noser. Yang tries to take this advice and Hahn finally pages her. A boy named Danny comes in with a pencil lodged in his eye, and his best friend by his side. When Derek tries to take the pencil out, Danny's brain swells which puts him in a coma for the rest of his life. His friend gets mad because there are kids there from the school that were in their own clicks pretending that they cared about him, when in fact they really didn't know him at all. This was a pretty good episode, but i thought it was just a tad bit average.moreless

    • Derek: Apparentally, I'm not good at meeting needs.
      Meredith: And I'm akward and freaky.

    • Sydney: Derek, I'm a lot of woman. I bring home the bacon, and fry it in a pan, serve it with eggs, or on a sandwich, or crumpled up in a cobb salad.
      Derek: Oh, you do a lot with bacon.
      Sydney: Not just bacon. But Derek, I bring a lot of things to the table and I'm looking for a man who can do the same, who can meet my needs. All my needs. And I just don't think you're ready.
      Derek: I think your right.
      Sydney: I won't let this affect our work unless you don't.
      Derek: I won't.

    • Alex: I don't do secrets. I don't do any of that 15 year old girl, ooh, I'm gonna tell you but don't tell anybody else.
      Lexie: We're not just talking about who made out with who at the Halloween dance, okay? This is a private family issue.
      Alex: You're dad is a drunk. I had to start cleaning up my dad when I was seven, okay? That's why I turned into the grown up of the family, okay, so you got to wait until you were twenty-four. Good for you.

    • Molly: I am never gonna be captain again!
      Callie: You know, I was... I was fired from a job recently-
      Molly: You were fired from being a doctor and they let you cut open my ass?!
      Callie: Okay, shut your trap for eight seconds and let me finish. I didn't get fired from being a doctor, I got fired from being being like, well our version of squad captain. Which is mostly about organizing crap... not about surgery.
      Molly: So?
      Callie: So, I got to go back to the part that I like... which is kind of a gift.

    • Meredith: Hey. I am getting two cups of coffee, two. One for me and one for my dad. He's here. What's wrong with you?
      Cristina: At this exact moment, in O.R 2 Dr. Hahn is performing a pulminary embilectmy. A pulminary embilectmy, Meredith!
      Meredith: So what's the problem? You're on her service, just go.
      Cristina: No, I can't! Because that would make me a brown-noser, and everybody hates brown-nosers. I cannot be a brown-noser.
      Meredith: Okay, so... there will be other embilectmies, you can let this one slide...
      Cristina: No, no, no! I can't I don't know how to just let a pulminary embilectmy just slide.
      Meredith: Sure, you can. It's just like cutting a class. (Cristina is silent) You've never cut a class?
      Cristina: Never. Not once.

    • Izzie: Can I have the key back to my house?
      George: Hey. What?
      Izzie: The key. To my house. I heard that we broke up, so I want it back. Can I have it please?
      George: Uh, you know, right now that I have no idea what you're talking about.
      Izzie: Really? Apparentally everybody's talking about the fact that we broke up. Who have you been talking to, George?
      George: Nobody. I mean, I talked to Meredith.
      Izzie: See? I knew it!
      George: What do you mean you knew it? You been talking to her?
      Izzie: Yeah, but only after you've been talking to her.
      George: Yeah, but I'm not the only one who talked to her then.
      Izzie: You talked to her first!

    • Meredith: My dad's in the ER.
      Derek: Really?
      Meredith: Mm. He cut himself, he's not bad company, actually. He's quite funny, and charming ... and drunk. Is it weird that I like my drunk dad better than my real dad?
      Derek: A little.

    • Thatcher: I'm sorry that I didn't know you when you were in high school. I've regretted it everyday, not knowing you. Sometimes I worry about you, then others I think maybe that's what made you so strong. It's not an excuse, not at all. Gosh, you are so strong, you are. You're stronger than Lexie.
      Meredith: I don't know her that well.
      Thatcher: True. You're a very impressive person, Meredith. I'm so proud of you. In a lifetime, lifetime's worth of proud.

    • Alex: You think she'll recover full function of her knee?
      Callie: I hope so because if she doesn't get back on the pom-pom brigade, her life is completely over. You think the way that they treat her she'd be ready to ditch the whole thing, but nooo.
      Mark: Of course she's not gonna walk away. It's her life, it's her identity, it's the only way that she understands herself in the world.
      Callie: Mmhmm. I heard one of the sweet young things, told Mark that he looked like her dad today. (Alex and Callie laugh)
      Mark: What does that have to do with anything?
      Callie: Well, you just seem really empathetic to her. You know? 'Loss of identity, shattered self-image.'
      Alex: You seem pretty happy about what happened to her.
      Mark: Or she's just happy because Stevens and O'Malley hit the skits.

    • Thatcher: I'm sorry. I really, really am.
      Meredith: I'm sure that you are.
      Thatcher: The last time I was here, I said some terrible things to you. Telling you not to come to Susan's funeral, it wasn't your fault. I know, you did everything that you could, what I said to you, I regret it to the day I die. And the drinking, it's unacceptable, but today is Susan's birthday and I -- I (chokes up)
      Meredith: Should I go get Lexie?
      Thatcher: Just you. I just want you.

    • Meredith: Hey, you paged?
      Alex: Yeah. Your dad's here.
      Meredith: What?
      Alex: Yeah. He's drunk, he's noisy, and you need to take him off of my hands. I have a broken ass that I need to get back to.
      Meredith: Call Lexie.
      Alex: I called Lexie, she's not coming. And the next call I'm gonna make is to the cops, because the guy's ready to get outta here and there's no way that he can drive.

    • Meredith: You need to cut Izzie some slack, her and George are having problems.
      Cristina: Already? It's only been a week. At that point you don't even talk, all you do is have sex.
      Meredith: Doesn't mean that you still can't have problems. Me and Derek are having all kinds of sex and he's dating other people.

    • Molly: It's still bleeding, my face is still bleeding.
      Callie: Alright, we'll get to that in a minute.
      Molly: We? No. Try the head of plastic surgery, no one is touching my face until I've spoken to the head of plastic surgery. No one.

    • Bailey: Alright, now listen up, I have nothin' but respect for the job done by Dr. Torres, but things are gonna be different from here on in.
      Izzie (whispering to Meredith): Things are totally weird between George and me. We can't even hold a normal conversation.
      Bailey: This will be a professional environment. So your love lives, your hopes and dreams, the little joys and tradgies that make you who you are, have no place in my hospital.
      Izzie (whispering to Meredith): He's acting like a total stranger. Like I don't even know him.
      Bailey: The locker room is for changing, not for crying. The on-call room is for napping, and not for anything that requires a locked door.
      Izzie (whispering to Meredith): And oh god, don't let me get started on the sex. It is just tradgic, it is--
      Bailey: Stevens! Did you hear a word that I just said? (Izzie looks blankly back at her) Grow up, I believe is my point.

    • George (after not getting on the elevator that Izzie and Derek are on): We're avoiding them now, it's come to that.
      Meredith: Why are you avoiding Izzie?
      George: It's like we're not us anymore, everything used to be so easy. Talking used to be so easy, now we can't even talk anymore.
      Meredith: Ah, Derek went on a date with Sdyney Harin yesterday. It's probably just a fake date to make me think he's healthy and moving on.
      George: And do you think he's healthy and moving on?
      Meredith: Can we just take the stairs?
      George: Okay.

    • (Watching Derek on a date with Sydney)
      Meredith: I think that their on a date. That's definatly a date, right?
      Cristina: Maybe she's dying. (Mark gets up from his seat at the bar and goes, and sits by Derek, after Sydney left for a minute)
      Mark: Is she dying? Is that why?
      Derek: Oh, grow up. She's nice and she asked me out.
      Mark: You want me to fake a heart attack? I can do a great fake heart attack.
      Derek: Here she comes.
      Mark (gets up and goes back to the bar): Carry on. (camera goes back to Meredith and Cristina looking on)
      Cristina: It's Sydney.
      Meredith: In the movies were the handsome, but sensitive football player kisses the akward and freaky girl in front of the whole school. That girl is her.
      Cristina: You are very akward and freaky.

    • Sydney: So why the brain? Why biology's crown jewel?
      Derek: You mean why did I go into neuro surgery?
      Sydney: Come on, share. Share with Sydney.
      Derek: It was the head-set with the magnifying glasses that tipped the scale for me.

    • Blonde Girl: This is so sad. I used to walk by his house everyday.
      Brunette Girl: He was in my algebra class... I think.
      Izzie: Marissa, I know that this seems impossible right now, but you will get through this. Danny would have wanted you to.
      Marissa: You don't know what he would have wanted. You're just like them. You're a prom queen and you're trying to act like you know what it's like for me. Lady, you have no idea what it's like.
      Izzie: I wasn't a prom queen. I was the girl in the cheap clothes from the trailer park who got pregnant. I got thrown in the pregnant girls class. None of the mothers would let their kids hang out with me. But I got through it. You will get through this.
      Brunette Girl: I'm gonna write a letter to his mom and dad.
      Blonde Girl: That's really beautiful.
      Brunette Girl: Yeah.
      Izzie: Get out.
      Brunette Girl: What?
      Izzie: Get out. You're not even supposed to be in here.
      Brunette Girl: She's here. (pointing to Marissa)
      Izzie: She's his friend. His best friend. Go away. Go!
      Marissa: I'm sorry. I didn't mean to...
      Izzie: It's okay. You just lost your best friend. It's... it's the worst thing in the world.

    • George: It's just is that I can't talk to you, and that's why I talk to Meredith, and I don't know why.
      Izzie: It used to be-- It used to be that I was the only person that I could talk to. And you were the only person that I could talk to.
      George: I know.
      Izzie: I'm in love with this incredible guy and we're having problems. And my best friend, he would know what to say to me about it. I need to be able to talk to my best friend. I cannot get through this without my best friend.
      George: Why isn't this easier?
      Izzie: I don't know.
      George: Well, I want my best friend back.
      Izzie: Me too.

    • Meredith: Your dad was in the ER today.
      Lexie: I know.
      Meredith: So, you know he was drunk and he put his hand through a window?
      Lexie: Yeah, anything else?
      Meredith: I know it was Susan's birthday and I'm sure it was a very hard day for the both of you. And he wasn't actually a problem, he was kinda charming. But, he seemed very sad and I'd hate to see it happen again so maybe you should think about keeping a better eye on him.
      Lexie: Everyday is my mother's birthday. My mother was born in March. He lied. He's a liar. And I'm glad. Really, I'm glad that you found him charming. I'm sure he was delightful. He's a blast after five drinks, not so much after nine though; he gets a little weepy and mean. He's a drunk, Meredith. He probably came in and told you how wonderful you are. How sad he is he doesn't get to spend more time with you. You know, yesterday he told me I was his favorite daughter. The day before, I was an ungrateful bitch. The week before, he wrote me a check for twenty-thousand dollars because he said I deserved everything life had to offer because he was so proud of me, a lifetimes worth of proud. So thank you for letting me know that I need to keep a better eye on him. Thanks. (Lexie storms away. Meredith, teary-eyed slumps against the wall to catch her breath)
      Richard: Meredith, you want to come in for a minute and sit down? (Meredith is in a daze) Meredith?

    • Meredith: I'm sorry about all of this.
      Richard: Meredith, please. You have nothing to apologize for. Nothing it all.
      Meredith: I'm keeping you from doing your job.
      Richard: This is my job, at least part of it. Think of it as... the principal's office, only I'm the nice principal. Anyways, I promised your mom I would take care of you.
      Meredith: I told you you don't have to do that.
      Richard: I know. I know I don't, but I do.

    • Lexie: I never knew what to say to them. In high school. Kids like him. They were always so... separate from the rest of us, you know, alone. It wasn't like that for me. I was prom queen and class valedictorian.
      Izzie: Yeah, I wouldn't broadcast that.
      Lexie: I had a great group of friends, you know?
      Izzie: No.

    • Molly: You better be able to fix my face. I have pom statewides in a month.
      Alex: You're a cheerleader?
      Molly: I'm a pom.
      Mark: Cheerleaders just jump around. Poms are dancers. (Alex and Callie look at him) I was on the football team.
      Callie: Yeah, I'm not sure you're gonna be doing any dancing in the next month.
      Molly: You better be lying.
      Callie: Not lying. You have very serious knee and leg fractures, not to mention a cracked coccyx.
      Molly: What the hell is that?
      Alex: That's the bone at the bottom of your spine.
      Molly: Uh?
      Callie: The bottom of your bottom.
      Molly: My ass? I broke my ass?
      Alex: That's one way to look at it.
      Mark: Don't look at it!
      Callie: Okay, you're gonna need surgery, but the good news is that we're gonna put you under, so then we can fix the bones and Dr. Sloan can fix your face all at the same time.
      Molly: You better be good.
      Mark: Baby, you're not gonna find anyone better than me. (gets up and whispers to Alex, as he's leaving) Oh my God, hot cheerleader ass. (Callie glares at them)

    • Derek: Night, Bailey.
      Bailey: Sit down.
      Derek: What?
      Bailey: Sit down!
      Derek: You okay?
      Bailey: What do you care? With your hair products and your perfect little face, perfect little life. What do you care how I am?
      Derek: My perfect little life. Have you been paying attention at all?
      Bailey: Yeah, I pay attention. I pay attention! I pay attention to people in all walks of life, all types. I notice people. I see people. It's guys like you who don't see people like me.
      Derek: I don't see you?
      Bailey: I'm not talking about you, Shepherd. Just guys like you. Who don't see girls like me. We don't exist for you. We exist to do your homework! We exist to build your ego up... I am a successful married mother. I am chief resident, I am chief resident of a major metropolitan hospital! I am a surgeon, who saved his life today! And he still doesn't see me... I may as well still be that high school girl with the mushroom haircut and the coke bottle glasses and the band uniform. The girl who didn't get to go to homecoming dance cause it didn't even occur to him to ask me. All those late nights tutoring him, and it didn't even occur to him to ask?
      Derek: Mmm. Band uniform. Really?
      Bailey: Do I look like I wanna be mocked by you right now?
      Derek: No, you don't. I'm just gonna say one thing. In high school, I was 110 pounds, and I hadn't yet figured out hair product, so I had a big afro. And, um, I had acne... and I too, wore a band uniform. Sax.
      Bailey: Oboe.
      Derek: I would have been honored to take a girl like you to homecoming.

    • Derek (to Mark): Hey, Dad! Want to get a drink? (they both laugh)

      Rose: You know my name!
      Derek: I had to ask around but now I know.
      Rose (smiles): Oh good for you. Good night.
      Derek: Hang on, I should have recognized you form the OR today. We worked together for three hours, it was thoughtless.
      Rose: I've worked on 36 of your surgeries and today was the first time we made eye contact. Like I said, hospital is no better than high school. Good night, Dr. Sheperd.

    • (Mark, Erica and Richard are in the cafeteria)
      Erica (to Mark): Is it me or there are teeny boppers staring at you? (the girls laugh)
      Mark: I get that a lot. It started when I was their age, never really went away.
      Richard: Is that so? (Mark calls them over)
      Brunette Girl: Let's go over there. Come on!
      Blonde Girl: No! (they walk over)
      Mark: What can I do for you ladies?
      Brunette Girl: Tell him!
      Blonde Girl: No! It's, it's embarassing.
      Mark: You can tell me.
      Brunette Girl: You look exactly like her dad! (the other girl nods, Erica and Richard laugh, Mark can't believe it)
      Richard: Swing and miss.

    • (Derek is taking something over a boy's eye, there is a pencil in his eye)
      Alex: Man, high school does suck.

    • Meredith (closing voiceover): In some ways we grow up; we have families… we get married, divorced… but for the most part we still have the same problems that we did when we were fifteen. No matter how much we grow taller, grow older, we are still forever stumbling… forever wondering, forever… young.

    • Meredith (opening voiceover): There comes a point in your life, when you're officially an adult. Suddenly, you're old enough to vote, drink and engage in other adult activities. Suddenly, people expect you to be responsible, serious, a grown-up. We get taller, we get older. But do we ever really grow up?
