Cristina: What? I was about to do an art. line with my left hand.
Alex: Zola's got a bowel obstruction. We have to operate.
Cristina: What? Where's Mer?
Alex: She can't know. Neither can Derek. I mean, they get involved and then social services flips out and the adoptions shot.
Cristina: Well, is she stable?
Alex: For the moment. And I-I mean, that's the right call, right? We don't tell 'em.
Cristina: You just told me it was.
Alex: But I'm right, right?
Cristina: It'll blow the adoption? Then, yeah, we can't tell them.
Alex: Okay, okay. That's your decision.
Cristina: Hey, you just called me down here so I can take responsiblity for your decision. How small are your balls?
Alex: Meredith didn't talk to me for weeks because I screwed up her life. The balls are pretty small right now.
