  • So predictable, so 80's.

    2.0
    Back then, it was very much in vogue for TV shows to portray high power career women turning down marriage proposals because they didn't want to give up their precious independence. Now it's just cliche. Really, who didn't predict that Bailey was going to back out?

    8.0
    Really? this episode just creates drama where there is none. Bailey not going to her wedding? Come on people, let these people have a bit less drama in their lives and end this show already, it has dragged on too long.

  • QUOTES (39)

    • Callie: Um, its possible, that I may have, by mistake, said that if she had any doubts, she should flee.
      Meredith: What?
      Arizona: Why?
      Callie: Well, I kind of said that marriage is like a dance of death and that leaving him at the altar would be a painful but efficient out.
      Arizona: Oh, that's nice.
      Callie: I was joking... And she was nervous, okay? And she wasn't sure if it was the wedding or the whole thing.
      Meredith: The marriage?
      Callie: She was nervous.
      Ben (walks in): How nervous? How nervous was she, Callie?

    • Cristina: Was the lawsuit the only reason you asked for a divorce?
      Owen (sighs): There are many reasons. You were... done a long time ago.
      Cristina: I'm asking about you. (Owen is silent) Okay, let me put it another way. I wanted to-- to try again. I was gonna ask you if we could try again, and you said 'I want a divorce.' (Owen kisses her)

    • Meredith: Everything went smoothly. Your vitals look great. And Derek is awake, and he's in good shape.
      Lizzie: Meredith, I'm pushy. I get that. Some people find it endearing, and some people really don't, but, um... You don't have to want Derek's truckload of sisters in your life.
      Meredith: Yeah. You are a pain in the ass. And I barely know you. (Lizzie laughs) Okay, so... I'm not very good at this. But I'm gonna try. I'm gonna show you something but you have to promise not to blab it to the whole family.
      Lizzie: Okay.
      Meredith: Promise?
      Lizzie: Yeah.
      Meredith: Okay. (hands Lizzie an ultrasound picture)
      Lizzie: You? Really? (Mer nods, Lizzie smiles) We're having a baby.
      Meredith (laughs): Yeah.
      Lizzie: Yay!

    • Callie: And we're back on the shoes.
      Arizona: Please don't even say it out loud. It makes me feel even more stupid. Just... (sighs) tell her that I wasn't feeling well.
      Callie: You've got to be kidding me.
      Arizona: Do not belittle me, okay? You have no idea what it's like--
      Callie: Oh, trust me, trust me, I am intimately familiar with what's going on, and I'm over it. You are exactly the same person you were before, just minus a leg.
      Arizona: You think it's nothing?
      Callie: No. Oh, no, no, no, no. I think it's everything. And-- And you know what? It has been... for months. And I have been supportive for months. But there comes a point where you have to suck it up and stop whining and start living. Okay, so you have one leg. It's a wedding. It's a wedding. And weddings are sweet and beautiful and n-no one's gonna notice the stupid leg because everybody's gonna be looking at Bailey, and maybe for one night, our lives can be about something other than that damn leg. My whole life is about that leg. I haven't had sex in five months because of the leg. Enough about the leg! (Callie sighs. Arizona puts on her flats)

    • Derek: I think I'm having a dream a really hot doctor came to take care of me.
      Meredith: This really hot doctor is leaving you to go to a party.
      Derek: Mm.
      Meredith: Callie said it could not have gone better. Do you have any pain?
      Derek: No. How's Lizzie?
      Meredith: Uh, she's doing well. She was still sleeping last time I checked. I'll swing by on my way out. (kisses him)
      Derek: Mm. Hey. (smiles) It may have worked.

    • Owen: What the hell was that? I thought this was supposed to be amicable.
      Cristina: We're getting divorced because of the lawsuit?
      Owen: It will significantly increase your chances--
      Cristina: You didn't want to mention it?
      Owen: I want you to get the money. I want all of you to get the money, and I knew there was a very real chance that you would reject the idea simply because I suggested it.
      Cristina: Oh, right. Because I'm so simple-minded and petulant.
      Owen: You've been known to--
      Cristina: Where do you get off making some kind of unilateral decision about our marriage?
      Owen: How about the fact that you moved across the country and didn't have the courage to do what I did and simply ask for a divorce?
      Cristina: Oh, god. So this is ballsy, you hiding behind the lawsuit? You couldn't just admit to me, or-- or-- or god sake, said it yourself that you wanted out. You have to let this stupid plane crash make the decision for you.
      Owen: I chose the airline! You like it better when I decide?! I chose the airline! (sighs) We had to make a budget cut of 4 percent... and we had a line iten of emergency transportation. We never used it, and we had a... fancy charter company, and I chose a... cheaper one. You want to know why it was cheaper?
      Cristina: You didn't build the plane.
      Owen: People are dead.
      Cristina: Or fly it.
      Owen: I thought you were dead.
      Cristina: You're not responsible.
      Owen: Someone has to be. I mean, it takes a lot of small mistakes to destroy something, and it's really easy for everybody involved just to say 'Ah, I just did this one small thing.' A bunch of people made it possible... for a bad plane to take off with you, Meredith, and Derek, and Arizona, and... And I am one of those people.

    • Callie: Is no one making small talk because this is Derek Shepherd on the table? This is intricate work. Small talk is what keeps us awake.
      Shane: Well, uh... a couple of days ago, I helped Dr. Kepner extract a malignant mass from the glutal area of a female patient. It-- It was an impressively sized mass.
      Callie: Who's gonna tell Dr. Shepherd that he'll never operate again because Ross' idea of gossip is, he saw April Kepner take a lump off an ass?

    • Alex: You narced on me to my boss?
      Jo: I worked hard to get here. I'm not gonna let myself get fired because--
      Alex: Nobody's firing you. I was trying to help you.
      Jo: I clearly wasn't ready for it.
      Alex: Why, because I had to take over? Look, you can't go crying to my damn boss every time you get scared. You can't cry at all when you get scared because it's scary in there all the time.
      Jo: I just thought, maybe after I blew the appy, I'd be a good target if you needed to pin something on someone. It's paranoid. I get that. I don't always trust people who are trying to help me.
      Alex: Yeah, yeah, you're a beaten dog and you bite people who try to feed you. I don't give a crap about your sad story. You want to be a surgeon, you need to get the hell over it. You burned a bridge with me. How about you grow up before you burn a bridge with every other attending who tries to teach you something?

    • Meredith: Jackson, I just want to let you know, that I'll be here watching watching the whole time.
      Jackson: Couldn't be happier.
      Meredith: No mistakes.
      Jackson: That's the plan. Okay. (Jackson turns and hits a tray, knocking it over)
      Meredith: Are you kidding me?!
      Jackson: Get that woman out of my gallery.
      Stephanie: That's not a good idea.
      Jackson: Get her out.
      Meredith: I heard that, Avery. Edwards, don't even think about.
      Jackson (to Stephanie): Now.
      Meredith: Edwards, you wouldn't dare. You have years with me. I can be very difficult to deal with.

    • Callie: Is Grey gonna be in the gallery?
      Derek: No. She didn't want to make you nervous. I told her that you don't get nervous.
      Callie: You're right. I don't. Close your eyes. Enjoy your nap. You've got nothin' to worry about.
      Derek: Mm. Torres?
      Callie: Hmm?
      Derek: You've got nothin' to worry about.

    • Richard (after seeing Bailey drop a pen, then the chart): I'm glad you're driving yourself to the wedding. Remind me to stay off of the roads.
      Bailey: Were you like this?
      Richard: On my wedding day, I remember staring at my socks for a long time. I had no idea what to do with 'em.
      Bailey: You know, ten years from now, if the marriage is strong, I'll look back at today and say... "It was just a little bit of cold feet." If we're in a nasty divorce, I'll say... "I knew it was a mistake the day we got married."
      Richard: You think it's a mistake?
      Bailey: I just feel... worried. I never felt that way with Tucker.
      Richard: You were a child when you married Tucker. You're an adult now. You know the world's an ambiguous place. You know that love doesn't conquer all. It conquers some stuff. The other stuff kicks the living crap out of love.
      Bailey: And this is the pep talk?
      Richard: Overwhelming doubt is a problem. A little bit of doubt is just a sign of an intelligent adult.

    • Arizona: Karev, did you tell Wilson that she'd be fired for screwing up a gastric implant?
      Alex: What?
      Arizona: Is the patient gonna make it?
      Alex: The patient's fine. What the hell did she tell you?
      Arizona: She thinks that you set her up to take the fall on a risky O.R. procedure, and it kinda sounds like you did.
      Alex: It would've been risky no matter who did it. And I was standing right there. The second it got hairy, I took over.
      Arizona: She was in over her head.
      Alex: And where do you think I got the idea to do something like that?
      Arizona: What are you talking about?
      Alex: You. I'm trying to be like you were with me. You let me try crap so I got confidence in myself. That's what I was trying to do-- Not treat the stupid morons like the stupid morons that I think they are.
      Arizona: I gave you opportunities. I also gave you a boatload of encouragement and support. I didn't drop-kick you into the deep end of the pool, and yell, "swim, idiot." You're a teacher now. Your students fail, you've failed.

    • Jackson: Dr. Shepherd's prepped?
      Stephanie: Yep.
      Shane: Dr. Torres is going over the studies.
      Jackson: Okay. (walks off)
      Stephanie (to herself): Hold it together.
      Shane: Well, a nerve extraction's a pretty simple procedure.
      Stephanie: Not that. He asked me on a date, to Dr. Bailey's wedding.
      Shane: Dr. Kepner asked me. It's a date? It's not, like a mentoring thing?
      Stephanie: How is drinking champagne and dancing to Barry White a mentoring thing?
      Shane: I thought it was, like, spending time getting to know the interns in a casual, stress-free environment.
      Stephanie: That was the free-doughnuts thing in the lounge. This is a wedding.
      Shane (groans): I can't go on a date with my boss. I need to focus on my work, not get all wrapped up in the ladies.
      Stephanie: Did you really just say 'the ladies'?
      Shane: You're the one who just said you couldn't concentrate in the O.R. 'cause Dr. Avery might look at you with his limpid green eyes.
      Stephanie: The eyes are really intense. You've noticed it yourself, right?
      Shane: Get a grip.
      Stephanie: You get a grip.

    • Cristina: G.S.W.
      Meredith: Sweet.
      Cristina: Scrubbing in with Owen. Who wants to sign our divorce papers today. I guess we're being mature and moving on.
      Meredith: Speaking of which, why didn't you tell me that the divorce was because of the plane crash lawsuit?
      Cristina: What?
      Meredith: Derek told me, so that the case is stronger. Which is great, I'm glad, especially if it means that the two of you are getting back together. It's good news, and I don't know why you wouldn't want to share that with me?
      Cristina: Because I didn't know.

    • Jo: Dr. Robbins.
      Arizona: Yeah. Hi.
      Jo: Dr. Karev had me take down some of the adhesions.
      Arizona: Yeah. Yeah, how'd that go?
      Jo: Some of the adhesions were stuck to the stomach. The stomach was injured. He could be septic by now. I don't think he had any business having an intern do that kind of move. I mean, you were pretty shocked to hear that I was doing it. He threw me in the deep end, probably because--
      Arizona: Okay, hang on. What exactly are you saying about your attending?

    • Richard: You still rechecking Kepner's work?
      Bailey: What I was born to do.
      Richard: I have a chole in about ten minutes, in and out, the whole thing should take an hour. You want to scrub in? Take the edge off before you go home and get dressed?
      Bailey: You... are a good man.
      Ben (walks in): Dr. Webber.
      Richard: Oh, the man of the hour.
      Bailey: Oh, tell me you're not here to take me back to that house.
      Ben (laughs): No, I'm-- I'm not.
      Bailey: Okay, well, he, um, just asked me to do a chole with him... And it's the only thing that's calmed me down on a day full of people trying and failing to calm me down.
      Ben: Why do you think he asked you? (smiles)
      Bailey: You called him? Oh, thank you. Both of you.
      Ben: So can I have a car pick you up at the house?
      Bailey: How many times do I have to say no to that?
      Ben: A person shouldn't drive themselves to their own wedding.
      Bailey: Well, I like to drive.
      Richard: In a wedding gown?
      Bailey: It's my last ten minutes as a single woman. You know, you both were on a roll there. Why are you trying to screw it up now?
      Richard: I'll see you in the O.R.
      Ben: And I will see you at the alter.

    • Jo: He probably knew it was risky, so he wanted it on me and not him.
      Stephanie: You have to stop. You're making yourself crazy.
      Jo: I'm gonna get fired.
      Stephanie: No, you're not. Just keep your head down and do your work.
      Jo (sighs): You're right, you're right.
      Stephanie: I have to ask you something, and in light of the fact that you think your job is on the line, it's gonna sound really stupid.
      Jo: Whatever. It's okay.
      Stephanie: Dr. Avery asked me to Dr. Bailey's wedding. And I can't put two words together into a sentence when I'm within two feet of him, and he's bringing a friend, and he asked me to bring a friend, and it'll be a bunch of us, and we'll all go together.
      Jo: You're right. It sounds really stupid.
      Stephanie: But will you do it? Please, Jo.

    • Richard: On the morning of your wedding?
      Bailey: Oh, my house is filled with my family talking about makeup and hair.
      Richard: Just check into a hotel. Take a nice long bath, get a manicure.
      Bailey: Oh, now I got you talking about makeup and hair?
      April (walks up): Dr. Bailey, what are you doing here?
      Bailey: Checkin' up on my patients. Making sure you haven't bungled anything.
      Richard: Don't mention her hair.
      April: Why? Did something happen to your hair? (April touches Bailey's hair, Bailey gives her a look and walks off)

    • Meredith: Are you still mad at me because I called Lizzie? Do you still love me?
      Derek (chuckles): Medium.
      Meredith: I just want your hand to be better so that we can put this stupid plane crash stuff behind us.
      Derek: Well, the lawyer called to schedule a deposition. He thinks we have a strong case, especially now that Cristina and Owen are getting divorced.
      Meredith: What does that have to do with anything?
      Derek: Well, it'd be a big conflict of interest if Owen was married to one of the plaintiffs. That's why they got divorced, right? She didn't tell you?
      Meredith: No. Why would she not tell me that?
      Derek: You didn't tell her you were pregnant. Maybe things are different now.

    • Arizona: You think Bailey will notice if I'm not there?
      Callie (scoffs): She just made you a bridesmaid.
      Arizona: Oh, she doesn't care about all of that. She just wants a bunch of people standing up there so it won't look weird when Ben has all his guys standing up there. And I have a packed day tomorrow.
      Callie: Yeah, 'cause you're going to a wedding.
      Arizona: You're supposed to wear heels... to a fancy occasion.
      Callie: Oh, come on.
      Arizona: No, they make you feel tall and confident and feminine and-- and my plastic foot isn't the right shape for... heels. I didn't get that kind.
      Callie: Well, I mean--
      Arizona: It's not nothing. I mean, why do you think women all over the world wear them?
      Callie: Because women all over the world are stupid.
      Arizona: Oh, okay. So you're gonna wear flats?
      Callie: Oh, I'd be happy to wear flats.
      Arizona: Oh, no, you wouldn't because then you would feel dumpy.
      Callie: Oh-ho. Did you just call me dumpy? (laughs)
      Arizona: Could you just for second admit that you know what it is I'm talking about?
      Callie: Okay, I know it's hard. It's hard all the time, and this is just one more reminder. But you are so, so beautiful. Yeah, people stand next to you and immediately feel bad about themselves. It's a public service that you're a couple inches shorter. It is a kindness to every other woman at that wedding that you are just one tiny bit less beautiful.

    • Jackson: Hey, Steph. (Stephanie jumps) You okay there?
      Stephanie: Fine.
      Jackson: Terrific. I wanted to ask you-- I was gonna go to the wedding with, you know, a friend-- A guy, like, stag.
      Stephanie: Yeah?
      Jackson: And now he feels like I'm bailing on him.
      Stephanie: You don't have to go with me.
      Jackson: No, no. You don't want to go?
      Stephanie: You have a date with a guy.
      Jackson: I ditched him, and I want you to find somebody for him. Is that weird?
      Stephanie: Nothing about this is weird.
      Jackson: Terrific.

    • Derek: We're not doing the procedure.
      Lizzie: Of course we're doing it. You know what happened when I said I'd do this? Mom called me three times in one day. It just brings tears to my eyes.
      Derek: She's a mess.
      Lizzie: Come on. You're the golden child. The rest of us are just scraping for second position, and I just put a lock on it for life. You think I'm giving that up just 'cause you have to cut into two legs instead of one?
      Derek: Lizzie--
      Lizzie: No, we're not discussing it. I've decided. Get back on the horse, Derek.
      Derek: Oh, okay, so you think I'm using this as an excuse, that I'm too scared to try and operate again?
      Lizzie: No, of course not. Nothing scares you.
      Derek: Mm. What if it doesn't work? Hmm? What if we go through all of this and nothing comes of it?
      Lizzie: Well, then at least we tried. We're doing it. Just... say thank you.

    • Alex: Hey. (puts a flask in his pocket) I stashed a little Johnnie in case the ceremony's got cousin reading a poem.
      Jackson: Right. Uh, I meant to find you. Um, I'm kinda bringin' a date.
      Alex: Yeah, me. Two guys picking up bridesmaids from out of town.
      Jackson: April's convinced that if we don't both bring dates, then we're both gonna end up...
      Alex: Why you gotta talk to her? She ruins everything.
      Jackson: How about I find someone for you to go with? You know, maybe Stephanie has a friend.
      Alex: Stephanie? That's who you're taking?
      Jackson: Do you want a date or not?
      Alex: No. (walks off, but comes back) Okay, whatever. Just don't get me an ugly one.

    • Lizzie: They're that short?
      Meredith (laughs): No. They're perfectly respectable calves. It's just that we're not gonna get quite enough nerve from just the one.
      Lizzie (laughing): Okay.
      Meredith: I know it's a lot to ask.
      Lizzie: No, it's, uh, fine. Do what you need to do.
      Meredith: Derek thinks it's too much to ask, but he really needs this, so if comes to you and tries to talk you out of it, you have to push. But don't tell him that I'm the one that came to you, because he won't like that.
      Lizzie: You've got some balls, don't you?
      Meredith: You know, if it's too much, we can call the whole thing off.
      Lizzie: You know we're family, right? There was no wedding, Meredith. You adopted a baby and you never invited us to come meet her. You never accepted our invitation to come see us. All we got was a couple of pictures via e-mail. You know, my kids were so excited that for months, they walked around telling every African American person they saw that we have a brown baby in the family? (chuckles) A year later, they kind of think I made the whole thing up.
      Meredith: I'm sorry. It's just, you know, with everything that's been going on--
      Lizzie: No, I get that we're all busy, but you're not shy about asking me for a couple of body parts, and now you want me to cover your tracks with Derek?
      Meredith: If you feel like it's inappropriate, we--
      Lizzie: No, it's what sisters ask sisters to do. We cover each other's asses. Look, if you want to be a sister, I am delighted, but then act like one.
      Meredith: My version of family isn't like your version. You guys give each other crap and then you laugh about it. You'd walk through fire for each other. Greys are not like that.
      Lizzie: Derek said you had a sister who worked here.
      Meredith: Half.
      Lizzie: She was on the plane?
      Meredith: You know, I-I really don't want to talk about my sister. My husband really needs this, so you don't have to like me, just-- just him.
      Lizzie: You have a child. She's part of my family. You of all people should realize, you need spares in a family. You need as many as you can get.
      Meredith: It was very nice to talk to you, Lizzie.

    • April: I think you should bring a date to Dr. Bailey's wedding. That way we will focus on our dates and not on each other.
      Jackson: Or we could just be focused on the happy couple.
      April: I am wearing a strapless dress. (motions with her hands) From here up, I'm completely naked.
      Jackson: Just... wear a different dress.
      April: I don't have a different dress. I work long hours. I don't shop. I have-- I have one dressy dress.
      Jackson: How am I supposed to find a date with one day's notice?
      April (sighs, and notices Stephanie): Stephanie. Hey. Um, would you like to go to Dr. Bailey's wedding?
      Jackson: Oh, what?
      April: Dr. Avery would love for you to go with him.
      Jackson: That's not true.
      April: He thinks that you'd be embarrassed, but you're not embarrassed, are you?
      Jackson: Of course she's embarrassed.
      April (whispers): She'll get over it.
      Jackson: Look, don't get other--
      April: Strapless... and tight.
      Jackson (turns to Stephanie): I will pick you up at one tomorrow in the locker room.
      Stephanie (nods and walks away): What just happened?
      Jackson: What about you? You got to pick mine, so I get to pick yours, right?
      April: Jackson.
      Jackson (noticing Shane walking down the stairs): Oh. What about Shane? He's a good looking piece of man, huh?

    • April: The last thing you want at your wedding is to wonder if Mr. Linzer is circling the drain just because nobody was monitoring his I.N.R. So I'll just stick around here tomorrow keep an eye on him.
      Bailey: Kepner, you broke up with Avery.
      April: I-- Yes. Yes. I-I don't know what that has to--
      Bailey: You're afraid that the sight of me in cream colored raw silk will bring tears to your eyes.
      April: I am sure that you will be beautiful--
      Bailey: I look at my father, he kisses me on the cheek, I turn away from him, take a breath. I step towards Ben and you and Jackson lock eyes from across the room. You melt into him like snow in the rain.
      April: I knew you would understand.
      Bailey: Suck it up, Kepner! If I have to go, you have to go.
      April: Okay. (walks off)
      Richard (overhearing): 'If I have to go, you have to go'?
      Bailey: Oh, drop it.
      Richard: Oh, no. That's the most beautiful sentiment I've ever heard.

    • Leah: So he's into you now?
      Jo: Karev? No.
      Leah: Uh-huh. Then why's he letting you take down adhesions? (to Heather) Have you ever removed adhesions?
      Heather: No. None of us have.
      Arizona (walks in): Hey, Wilson. Uh, where are Su-Jin Kim's post-op notes?
      Jo: I didn't finish it. I wanted to practice for this gastric neurostimulator surgery I'm doing with Dr. Karev.
      Leah: She's taking down the adhesions.
      Arizona: Really? Oh. Good for you. He must really trust you. (watching Jo practice) Hmm. Um... I hope you're not using blunt dissection, 'cause that'll tear it. You want nice, precise moves with the instruments.
      Jo: Okay.
      Arizona: You sure you're ready for this?
      Jo: Yeah. You want me to get you that chart?
      Arizona: No. It can wait. You should practice. (walks out)
      Leah (to Heather): See? She shouldn't even be doing a move like this. He's into her.

    • Leah: So he's into you now?
      Jo: Karev? No.
      Leah: Uh-huh. Then why's he letting you take down adhesions? (to Heather) Have you ever removed adhesions?
      Heather: No. None of us have.
      Arizona (walks in): Hey, Wilson. Uh, where are Su-Jin Kim's post-op notes?
      Jo: I didn't finish it. I wanted to practice for this gastric neurostimulator surgery I'm doing with Dr. Karev.
      Leah: She's taking down the adhesions.
      Arizona: Really? Oh. Good for you. He must really trust you.

    • April: Flowers, music-- It's a recipe for disaster.
      Meredith: April, you're going to be fine. Don't worry about it.
      Cristina: Oh, come on. Don't tell her she's gonna be fine. You're gonna be looking all pretty, little bit of lip gloss on your prude-y little mouth. Jackson will spot her across the room. He'll try to look away, but he can't. You're irresistible in your dress. One drink, and you're doing the hippity-dippity in the coat room.
      April: The dress? Oh, god. (rushes off)
      Cristina: See?
      Meredith: Cruel.

    • Alex: We have to do an open procedure because he has adhesions from his surgery a couple of years ago. Once he's open, you can take down the adhesions.
      Jo: Really?
      Alex: Yeah.
      Jo: I've never done anything like that before.
      Alex: Yeah, well, if it was me, I'd spend the next few hours in the skills lab.
      Jo: Dr. Karev, is this because I told you about when I was a kid?
      Alex: Oh, yeah. I feel so bad you were a dumpster-diving orphan, I'm letting you hack up a 10 year old.
      Jo: Sorry. Stupid.
      Alex: Ya think?

    • Callie (cheerful): Good news. Arizona and I both have red dresses. Now they're not the same, but they are similar. So it's not like matchy-matchy, but it'll still be super cute.
      Bailey: Now which part of my face says I want super cute?
      Callie: Ohh. Get over it already, it's a wedding. No one cares that it's your second other than you. Just hold your nose. It'll be over in a few hours.
      Bailey: Sure. And then we'll be married and, oh, him in L.A, me here with my son and a job that's known to take up a great deal of time. Oh, and he's an intern, because one specialty wasn't enough for him. Let's get to that part. You know, everyone's acting like I'm some jittery bride. Maybe I have something to jitter about.
      Callie: Well... If it's the marriage you're really worried about... You can run.
      Bailey: Excuse me?
      Callie: Leave him at the alter. It's a clean break. He's so pissed that you stood him up in front of all his people, the whole thing is just over. And then you're not wrestling with a relationship that's doomed or tied to someone for the rest of your life. I mean, sure, you love each other now. But the next thing you know, you are cleaning his pee off the ground and going to bed with a foot-wide demilitarized zone down the middle of the bed. (Bailey looks scared) Kidding. (laughs) I'm just kidding. I'm kidding. No, it-- it'll be fine. It'll be fine. Yeah, Ben's the... the best. He's... He-- (Callie walks away)

    • Derek: You know, um... I was thinking about telling Lizzie if you're okay with that.
      Meredith: Um, I still think it's kind of early.
      Derek: Yeah, but she's doing this thing for me.
      Meredith: She'll tell your whole entire family.
      Derek: Well, you told Cristina.
      Meredith: I haven't.
      Derek (surprised): Still?
      Meredith: There's no point. I'm probably gonna miscarry anyway.
      Derek: Meredith--
      Meredith: I am just stating the facts. I have a very unstable uterus. This baby has an uphill climb. I am just being realistic.

    • Owen: The lawyer put together the papers. They're gonna send them over tomorrow.
      Cristina: Oh, I signed a bunch of stuff with them last week.
      Owen: Uh, not the plane crash. The divorce.
      Cristina: Oh. That was fast.
      Owen: I said we wanted to move quickly.
      Cristina: Apparently.
      Owen: It's all done. You just have to sign. Is that a problem?
      Cristina (sarcastic): Nope. Tomorrow, with a pen.

    • Bailey (to Mer): Grey, when you get to the wedding tomorrow, don't sit down. (Mer looks confused)

    • Jackson: Now once I remove the sural nerve from your leg, Dr. Torres will graft it on to Dr. Shepherd's median nerve. You'll likely experience some discomfort in your leg for a few weeks--
      Derek: Months. Months. And when he says 'discomfort,' it's gonna hurt like hell.
      Lizzie: Well, you're a bag of sunshine, aren't you?
      Derek: I don't want to hear six months from now that you can't move and that the ibuprofen hurts your stomach.
      Lizzie: He makes me sound like I'm a 90 year-old man. Have you noticed that?
      Derek: Because I've heard for decades how I ruined your life...
      Lizzie: Because you did.
      Derek: And that mom doesn't love you.
      Lizzie: Because she doesn't.
      Derek: I don't want to hear about this.
      Lizzie: I think what you're trying to say is 'thank you, Lizzie, for cutting off a leg and giving it to me.'
      Derek: Ah. Here it is. This is how it's gonna go down in history. It is a nerve. It is not the entire leg.
      Meredith: Okay, let's focus. Jackson.
      Jackson: Um, I think Dr. Shepherd's right. If you're unsure, we--
      Lizzie: Oh, come on. I'm just winding him up because it is so easy. Just give me the form.

    • Bailey: Hey.
      Callie (singing): Duh, duh, duh-duh
      Bailey: Don't.
      Callie (singing): Duh, duh, duh-duh duh, duh, duh-duh duh (notices Bailey walking away and stops singing) Alright, alright, alright. I'll stop. I'll stop. Jeez.
      Bailey: When you and Arizona get to the wedding tomorrow... don't sit down.
      Callie: What do you mean don't sit down?
      Bailey: Just find a place and stand... there.
      Callie: You want us to stand in the back? Then we won't be able to hear anything.
      Bailey: Stand in the damn front.
      Callie: And block everybody's view? (Bailey sighs) I mean, if we're-- I don't--
      Bailey: Just pick a spot! You know, it's not complicated. Ugh! You know, people allow you to open them up with a knife. If they knew you couldn't follow a simple instruction, they would run like the wind from this place.
      Callie (realizing): Are you... Are you trying to say, 'Would you do me the honor of being my bridesmaids?'
      Bailey: Does the whole thing have to be about you? Just put on a dress and don't sit down.
      Callie: Aww. We're bridesmaids.
      Bailey: Oh, don't even-- (Callie squeals and hugs her) Ju-- Jus-- See? Ugh! This is what I was trying to avoid.

    • Bailey: Now, Mr. Linzer hates the food, so he will tell you he feels fine. He does not feel fine. And if you release him before his I.N.R. stabilizes, he will bleed to death.
      April: Murphy's gonna keep an eye on him. (Bailey glares) I am gonna keep an eye on him.
      Bailey: Mrs. Gellman's still intubated but I want the tube out by Monday.
      April (to Leah): Have the nurses page you as soon as she starts breathing on her-- (Bailey makes a face) I- I will ask them myself.
      Bailey: Oh, it's not too much for you?
      April: Not at all.
      Bailey: And yet, you're trying to fob it off to petunia here, with her years and years of experience in critical care.
      April: I want you to relax on your honeymoon. I thought that you'd be reassured by having two sets of eyes on your patients.
      Bailey: The notion of an intern handling my patients is the best way I can think of to ruin a perfectly good Mai Tai.
      April: Oh, are you going someplace warm? (Bailey glares) We don't have to talk about it.
      Bailey: Oh, no. I want to talk to you about my honeymoon-- The hotel, the sights...
      April: I'm gonna handle Mrs. Gellman myself.
      Bailey: What I'm wearing on the plane, what I'm wearing on the beach.
      April: Leah, leave.
      Bailey: And the wedding-- Should I get my names down today or tomorrow on my way to the ceremony?
      April: Okay, she's gone. I got this.

    • Meredith: (opening voiceover) The adrenal system reacts to stress by releasing hormones that makes us alert and reactive. The problem is, the adrenal system can't tell what's a regular case of nerves and what's a real impending disaster.

    • Meredith: (closing voiceover) The body doesn't know the difference between nerves and excitement, panic and doubt, the beginning, and the end. The body just tells you to get the hell out. Sometimes you ignore it. That's the reasonable thing to do. But sometimes you listen. You're supposed to trust your gut, right? When your body says run, run.
