Meredith: If he wants to suffer, then maybe we let him.
Bailey: Oh, so you're gonna let him die because he hurt your feelings?
Meredith: There isn't anything that he can say to me that I haven't heard from my mother a thousand times. I'm bulletproof. But we can force all the treatment on him we want. It won't make a difference if he decides he does not want to fight for himself. Maybe he just needs to see what it feels like to hit bottom.
