Cristina's phone is a red Blackberry pearl, 8130 series.
Meredith: They're my family. You can't just assume that I'm gonna kick my family out. And you don't get to announce it to them and ambush me. And you definatly don't get to try to get Cristina on your side. They're my family. They're who I have. You and them.
Derek: I'd like to talk about it again. But when you're ready. But for now... Okay.
Meredith: So you still love me?
Derek: Meredith... Yes.
Meredith: Hey, are you okay?
Izzie: You know, I'm happy for you. I am. I'm really happy for you and Derek and that you guys are moving foward, I'm ... I don't know how it happened, that I don't have anyone, but... I don't have anyone.
Meredith (sits down next to her): That's not true, Iz. That's not true.
Lexie: George, George, how'd it go?
George (sits down and puts his head on the table): I- I just there was a water problem and I helped the Chief and now all the medical facts are falling out of my head and on the floor.
Lexie: Eat this. It's brain food. (sticks her fork out, with an apple on it to him, he eats it)
Alex (sits down): My dude with the aneurism fell on from the water smacked his head and got stuck in the CT machine.
Meredith: My patient's dying. I hate it when I like them and they're dying.
Lexie: Our guy's been living in pain for seven years, constant pain at an eight because of an inflammed nerve in his nose. That's crazy.
George (sulking): I wish that I had an inflammed nerve in my nose.
Cristina: There's no way that guy has been living at an eight. He's a wimp. His eight? My three. I can take pain.
Meredith: You can't talk to my boyfriend for 10 minutes.
Cristina: Well there's pain and then there's torture. Seriously. I can take pain. Test me. (she sticks out her wrist and Alex slaps it) See? Nothing.
Alex: That's impressive.
George: Shut up. You barely touched her. (Alex picks up George's arm and slaps it) Ow! (Alex moves to hit Meredith's arm, she protests and laughs, Alex slaps her arm)
Cristina: Um, how did you diagnose that nevre? Because I've never even heard of that condition before.
Lexie: Uh, I remembered an article from the British Journal of ENTs, and it was issue number 47, page 19, from 1964. ... I've got a photographic memory.
Alex: Dude, a Lexipedia.
George: I hate you.
Lexie: Don't hate me. I can help you.
Callie: I get that you are a private person. But I am not. I process my stuff out loud. And I gave up too much of myself in my marriage. I can't... give up pieces of myself again. And uh, Mark is my friend.
Erica: I think I just hate him because he's seen you naked.
Callie (looking at the flyer for the apartment): So we can burn actual wood?
Cristina: That's my favorite. 'Cause you can't find that anymore.
Izzie (walks up): So what do you think?
Cristina: Thank you this is a fantastic apartment. We totally love it.
Callie: Love it. I love it, I love it.
Cristina: It was really great of you, Izzie. Thank you.
Izzie (laughs): You're kidding, right? (they are silent. Izzie stops laughing, and smiling) You're kidding, right?
Izzie: Cristina, are you kidding me?! I am getting kicked out of my house. You think that I (takes the flyer) ... I pulled this off the board for you? I was asking you to live there with me! (Cristina looks clueless to this, Callie bursts out laughing)
Cristina: Oh, um... I'm sorry. Oh, yeah that's hilarious. I- I'm s-sorry.
Callie (laughs): I'm walking to the bar. (leaves the table)
Izzie: I... I just... Give me the flyer.
Cristina: Um... I already put a deposit down. I'm sorry, you should've been more clear.
Izzie (laughs, and crumples up the flyer): You know, that's fine! Totally fine! Just keep it. Whatever! (leaves Joe's)
Cristina: T-Thank you...
Mark: So... a photographic memory, huh? Periodic Table. Go.
Lexie: Hydrogen, helium, lithium, beryllium, boron, carbon, nitrogen, oxygen, fluorine, neon, sodium, magnesium, aluminum, silicon, phosphorus, sulfur. (laughs) I can keep going.
Cristina: You're the shrink, right?
Dr. Wyatt: Yes.
Cristina: Well, you can't let her quit.
Dr. Wyatt: Lemme guess... Cristina.
Cristina: She talks about-- Whatever. Um, you can't let her quit because I am no longer allowed an opinion because I'm being supportive. So, you're my last hope. I mean it's your job to have an opinion, right? You're paid to have an opinion.
Dr. Wyatt: That's right.
Cristina: Okay, so um... She lives her life at an eight. Her pain, at any given day, she lives at an eight. And he doesn't get that. When he moves in and then expects her to move her roommates out... Wh-Which goes to show to you how completely he doesn't get her, because she needs them. So you need to tell her not to move them out. I- I mean it's not gonna work out in the long run anyway. And she thinks that she's happy, but she's not. And it's your job to tell her.
Dr. Wyatt: It must be incredibly painful for you. The idea of losing Meredith to Derek.
Cristina (makes a face): You're a terrible shrink.
Cristina (to Derek): Don't ever use me again to try to influence her. Me and you are not Team Meredith.
Cristina: ... What?
Izzie: You're not a terrible person.
Izzie: I know that we don't always see eye to eye, but... I found this really great apartment. It's right across the street from the hospital, has really great life, and I know you can afford it and it's Burke free. It must be kinda awful living in his old place. Think about it.
Dr. Wyatt: Meredith, you are not finished, you have worked incredibly hard, look how far you've come. But you're just scratching the surface.
Meredith: Well, Derek's moved in and we're taking it to the next level.
Dr. Wyatt: It's not about Derek.
Meredith: I'm happy.
Dr. Wyatt: You're not done.
Meredith: I am happy. Isn't that the point?
Dr. Wyatt: No.
Izzie: You know what? Throw him out, not me. Just him.
Alex: She likes me more.
Izzie: I bake for everyone and I clean. The only things that you bring to the house is flith. What would you prefer Meredith? A chocolate cake or an STD? (Meredith chuckles)
Meredith: So you told Derek that you think that I should kick them out?
Cristina: No. I told him I would want them out. Me. Not you. And I only said it because he wouldn't stop talking.
Meredith: So you don't think that I should kick them out? Because I think that I'm going to. I think that it's the adult thing to do, don't you?
Cristina: What does your shrink say?
Meredith: I quit my shrink. I'm happy. We're happy.
Erica: Look, we don't even know where we are yet. So how does Mark Sloan know? Why are you talking to him instead of me?
Mark (walks in): Ladies. ... Am I interrupting?
Erica: Your timing is perfect.
Mark: Really? Were you about to feel her up? (Erica gets upset and leaves, Mark has a huge grin on his face)
Callie: Stop. You have to stop.
Mark: I can't.
Callie: Seriously. She hates it.
Mark: That's why I can't. (Callie throws a grape at him) Don't. (she throws another one at him) You want a spanking?
Mark: You think that I could run a quick test on your patient?
Derek: He's in a lotta pain, Mark. I don't think he needs a tummy tuck.
Mark: Oh, that's very funny. But uh, Dr. Grey came to me with an interesting idea. And unlike you, I'm taking the Chief's new teaching protocol seriously, so I listened.
Izzie: Guess what I found? An apartment. A beautiful apartment with hardwood floors, and an honest to God fireplaces that you can build honest to God fires in. ... And I can't afford it by myself, so I thought that if you could get over yourself, we could live together.
Alex: No, thanks.
Izzie: Did I mention hardwood floors? And the honest to God fireplace?
Alex: I'd rather live in my honest to God car.
Meredith: But Izzie bakes and Alex fixes things.
Shelly: Okay, but when I am no longer cancer girl and I can go out and meet a hot doctor who rocks my world and wants to move in with me... I might forget about the bake goods and repair work.
Meredith (laughs, then sees Derek walking by): Ooh, heads up 12 o'clock.
Derek (as he's walking by): Just so you know, Cristina thinks that you should move them out. You should talk to her.
Shelly: Dude, you failed to mention the hair.
Meredith: Yeah, yeah the hair. It's one of the many things that makes me happy.
(They are monitoring a patient)
Derek: If you were me, you'd want them out... the roommates. I'm not being unreasonable.
Cristina: His pulse is coming down...
Derek: But you have to admit, you'd want them out. (Cristina exhales) If you were me, you'd want them out. ... If we have to operate I'll let you drill the borrow holes by yourself.
Cristina: Fine I'd want them out. Whatever.
Derek: I knew it.
Erica: We have a problem. Mark Sloan has found us out.
Callie: Mark's known from the beginning. I told him.
Erica: He's Mark Sloan.
Callie: What? You don't have a person that you talk to about things?
Erica: You are the person that I talk to about things. And I like to keep my private life private, from everyone. And most definitely Mark Sloan.
Richard (to the entire staff): Okay, we're busy people here, so I'm gonna try to be brief. I am intementing a new teaching protocol here at Seattle Grace. Some of these rules are new, and some are old that are gonna be newly enforced. First, second, and third residents will no longer be aloud to defactal specialize, the practice inferes with the developement of a fully rounded surgical education. No more. Personal relationships, personal loyalites, and personal favorites will no longer be a factor in our training program. Attendings you will spread your wealth of knowledge equally amoung all the residents. In addition, we will refocus our attention on patient communication and bedside manner. For some us this means using the lost art of humanity and compassion. For others this means learning how to treat patients without becoming emotionally involved with them. This is a surgical program, psychiatry is on the 5th floor, let's not confuse the two. In addition, residents, your interns reflect on you. If they fail, you fail. If they succeed, you succeed. Attendings that goes for residents as well. Teach with enthusiasm, learn with enthusiasm. We are surgeons, we cut out belignacies. Let's start at home people.
Meredith: So, Derek wants Izzie and Alex to move out.
Cristina: Since when does he say 'jump' and you jump?
Meredith: Well, I'm happy.
Cristina: I'd be pissed off. ... But do whatever you want.
Alex: When were you planning on telling us that we have to move out?
Derek: Yeah, when were you planning on telling them when they have to move out?
Meredith: What? Why do they have to move out?
Izzie: Hey, Mer look I made this especially for you. (hands her a muffin)
Derek: It's a zoo. It's a frat house with Alex's parade of women.
Izzie: His parade of skanks.
Alex: Whatever, am I apartment hunting or what?
Meredith: I don't know. I have to think about it.
Izzie: Eat the muffin, Mer. Taste the muffin. Remember. The muffin. (Izzie and Alex get on the elevator)
Meredith: I like my roommates.
Derek: I like them too. That was your life, this our life. And I'm excited about building our life together. Come on. It's gonna be good.
Izzie: What are you doing in here?
Derek: I was thinking about making this my office when you move out.
Izzie: When... I move out? When am I moving out?
Derek: Oh. Soon?
Meredith: What was the point? All those hours and all that money? What's the point? The world is a horrible place. Young people die of diseases. It makes absolutely no sense to try to be happy in a world that's such a horrible place.
Dr. Wyatt: Yes.
Dr. Wyatt: Yes, horrible things do happen. Happiness in the face of all of that, that's not the goal. Feeling the horrible and knowing that you're not going to die from those feelings, that's the point. ... And you're not done. You've made progress because you're feeling and you're telling me about it. Six months ago it would've been just you and a bottle of tequila. My door is always open.
Meredith (closing voiceover): Bones break, organs burst, flesh tears. We can sew the flesh, repair the damage, ease the pain. But when life breaks down, when we break down, there's no science, no hard and fast rules, we just have to feel our way through and to a surgeon there's nothing worse, and there's nothing better.
Meredith (opening voiceover): As surgeons we are trained to fix what's broken. The breaking point is our starting line, that works. But in our lives, the breaking point is a sign of weakness; and we'll do everything we can to avoid it.
