    • Meredith: I have a plan. I'm gonna be a mom.
      Cristina: Okay. Mer, there's a giant sinkhole. Teddy is all over me. Don't page me unless you have a serious--
      Meredith: Maybe getting fired was a good thing. What do cheerful people say when something crappy happens and they make it sound like it wasn't crappy?
      Cristina: A blessing in disguise.
      Meredith: Yeah. Maybe that's what this is. This is that. And I can make jam and drive carpool and have playgroups. And maybe that's enough. And maybe I'll be a great mom.
      Cristina: Okay, okay. I'm gonna vomit call me when Meredith comes back.
      Meredith: And maybe you wanna be a mom, too and that's why you can't go through with it.
      Cristina: I wish I wanted a kid. I wish I wanted one so bad because then this would be easy. I would be happy. I'd have Owen and my life wouldn't be a mess, but I don't. I don't want a kid. I don't wanna make jam, I don't wanna carpool, and I really, really, don't wanna be a mother. I wanna be a surgeon. And please, get it. I need someone to get it. And I wish that person was Owen and that any minute he'd get it and show up for me. But that's not gonna happen. And you're my person, and I need you to be there at six o'clock tonight to hold my hand because I am scared, Mer, and sad because my husband doesn't get that. So, I need you to.
