Alex: Hey, Jason.
Jason: Cops here yet?
Alex: Let's talk for a second.
Jason: She attacked me, alright? Jo's a lunatic. She's disturbed, and she's a liar.
Alex: Listen... You got a good thing here. Good job. Nice place. You have friends here?
Jason: Oh, you wanna be my friend now?
Alex: Me? Nah. (chuckles) I got enough friends. Cristina Yang-- She's my friend. She owns the hospital. Derek Shepherd. Owns the hospital. Meredith Grey-- Her name's on the friggin' door. And these are my friends. And they don't like a guy who hits his girlfriend. Neither do I.
Jason: She attacked me. What was I supposed to do?
Alex: You're supposed to take it. A girl hits you, you take it, or you walk away. It's the story of my life. Jason, you can tell this story 'til you're blue in the face, but all people are gonna hear is that you hit her. And that little bit-- It's gonna follow you around the halls here. And if you leave, it'll get wherever you're going before you do.
Jason: Oh, you'll make sure of that, huh? It sounds like you're blackmailing me.
Alex: It sounds like you're a guy who hits girls, 'cause you did. So what do you wanna do next? (walks out of Jason's room, Derek is standing there)
Derek: What'd he say?
Alex: What, you heard that?
Derek: I did. You think it's okay to blackmail people, Karev?
Alex: I wasn't. It was just a threat.
Derek: You're threatening him? What are you thinking?
Alex: A bunch of people got hurt here. I didn't see the point in any more. I mean, the guy's not pressing charges.
Derek: Oh, so it all works out. You feel good about that? Because you shouldn't.
