      • Cristina: You know why I'm upset? I'll tell you why.
        Owen: Okay, why?
        Cristina: She's what you wanted. You don't just throw away a future like that. I want you to be happy.
        Owen: Oh, do you?
        Cristina: Of course!
        Owen: Or do you just want to see me squared away?
        Cristina: What does that mean?!
        Owen: It means, uh, you wanna see me, you know, get what I want so you don't have to feel guilty anymore.
        Cristina: About what?
        Owen: About not giving it to me.
        Cristina (chuckling): Oh, whoa!
        Owen: Right? It's either that, or you just want to see me get married off so you're forced to stop thinking about me.
        Cristina: Oh, that's it. That's the one.

      • Arizona (about Callie's H.R. meeting): How did it go?
        Callie (sighs): I'm going to bed.
        Arizona: I think Murphy was right.
        Callie: Oh, of course she was right, Arizona! I mistreated her! And I was petty and jealous and at my worst because you slept with her! Of course she was right! (sighs) I keep thinking we're okay. And we-- We buy a house, and then this happens, and I'm not sure we'll ever be okay. And today I lost my research, I failed a patient, and now I have a disciplinary report that's gonna follow me forever. So I'm going to bed!
        Arizona: I'm sorry. I feel like all I've been doing is thinking about myself.
        Callie: God, I swear! I swear-- I cannot listen to you apologize one more time. You have made it very hard to keep forgiving you!
        Arizona: For over a year, since the plane crash, all I have been thinking about is myself. I had to figure out how to... be me. I used to be someone who was always happy. I woke up happy. I was someone who used to skate at work. And then this happened, and everything was hard and everything took thought and-- and planning. And my life felt like it didn't fit me anymore. And I just-- I wanted-- I wanted to tear it all down and start over, just throw it away and find a life that fit who I am now. But I'm starting to feel like I know who I am again. And I've had to give up things, but what I've learned is that I don't need much. I don't need much to be happy. I don't even need two legs. But I do know... that I need you. I need Sofia, and I need you. And I'm-- I'm afraid, (crying) now that I've learned all of that, that I made you give up on me. (Callie walks out of the room and comes back with Arizona's Heelys, and puts them on her feet)
        Callie: You shouldn't have to give up anything.

      • (They are both filling out paperwork in H.R after Steph hit Jackson with the gurney)
        Stephanie: How's your leg?
        Jackson: My knee is... I'm fine. How about you? How are you?
        Stephanie (sighs): I didn't see you coming.
        Jackson: That's not what I meant.
        Stephanie: No, I know that.
        Jackson: I'm sorry, Stephanie. Will you let me say that to you, please? Okay? I am so sorry. I had no idea I was gonna do that. None. I thought I was-- I told myself that I didn't want her, that April didn't want me. And you and I... We-- Steph, you are so--
        Stephanie: Please don't. Don't do that.
        Jackson: I'm trying to say I didn't see it coming. Okay? There's no way I wanted to hurt you. And I don't know how I can make that better.
        Stephanie: You can't. And, anyway, we both got a day we'll never forget.
        Jackson: Steph--
        Stephanie: You got a day to tell your grandkids about, and I got something I'd never gotten before. I got pitied. I-I was suddenly the girl who wasn't good enough or smart enough or pretty enough or not deserving. I've never gotten that look before because I'm not that girl.
        Jackson: I know that. Look, you can hit me with as many gurneys as you want to, because I'm gonna feel terrible about this for the rest of my life.
        Stephanie: Okay. Well, you do that if you want to. I'm not. I'm not going to feel sad or angry or pitiable for one more minute, because I'm not gonna care about you. So, if I don't say hello or make small talk on the elevator or acknowledge your birthday or even acknowledge you're alive, it's because, to me, you just exist. Because I don't care.

      • Cristina: Hey. Oscar's doing well. He needs, uh, more observation, but-- (notices Arizona is putting a bandage on her leg) Ooh.
        Arizona: Oh, yeah. Bad leg day.
        Cristina (sighs & sits down): Yeah, me too.
        Arizona: What would have happened if they hadn't found him out there?
        Cristina: He'd be dead.
        Arizona: Yeah, but he's not. He'll grow up. He'll be, you know, who knows who. He'll have a whole life.
        Cristina (smiles): Yay.
        Arizona: Yeah.
        Cristina: Do you still have dreams about it?
        Arizona: Oh, yeah. Usually when I'm anxious. I mean, the day, um, before Sophia started her first day of preschool, I dreamt about it all night, about Mark and Lexie and the pilot Jerry.
        Cristina: Jerry. For me, I dream about you screaming. You wouldn't stop screaming. So thank you for that. (Arizona laughs)
        Arizona: Good job today.
        Cristina: Yeah. Lucky kid.

      • Thom: You know, I could sue you guys. I could sue this entire hospital.
        April: Sir, you signed away your legal rights to the kidney when you agreed to be a donor.
        Thom: No, he broke our deal. The-- The terms were I give him my kidney to use, and he has broken our deal!
        April: It was a gift.
        Thom: He threw it away!
        April: Thom! Step back, right now, or I will call security.
        Jo (walks up): Dr. Kepner--
        April: Wilson--
        Jo: Donald Mercer suffered cardiac death. Organ recovery's called off. It's all going in the trash.
        April: Dr. Wilson, Thom here is Mr. Mercer's friend.
        Jo: Oh, I am-- so sorry.
        Thom: No, no, he what? Do-- Donald what?
        April: He died, Thom.
        Thom: No. I-I don't understand. You said he was just brain dead.
        April: He was. He was, and his heart was sustaining his organs, but now his organs are no longer viable for donation because he's gone. Donald is gone.
        Thom: This is-- This is not right. This is-- This is not fair.
        April: I know. I know it's not fair. It's not fair at all.
        Thom: No, no. He-- He's my best friend, since 7th grade. I-I saved his life. I gave him my kidney. (voice breaking) I was... I was supposed to have saved his... (sobs) I just...

      • Alex: That was having my back? I knew you were a hypocrite, but that was really cold.
        Meredith: Stop it. You're suspended. Somebody had to be in there. Read this. (hands him a folder)
        Alex: What is it?
        Meredith: It's me having your back. I got it from H.R. It's a love contract.
        Alex (scoffs): A what?
        Meredith: It's a declaration of a relationship. If you sign this and Wilson signs it, it clears everybody from any claims of favoritism or sexual harassment.
        Alex: That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard of.
        Meredith: Well, it sounds stupid, but H.R said if you sign this that it makes the whole thing go away. So, sign it.
        Alex: No!
        Meredith: Well, then I'm done trying to help you.
        Alex: I can't go to her with this. Look, I asked her to marry me when I was freaking out about my dad. I scared the crap out of her. If you guys keep screwing with us--
        Meredith: How are we screwing with you?
        Alex: Jo wants to be a surgeon, Mer. She came from nothing to be here. Now, cause of me, there's suspensions and punishments. If you keep making it harder, she's gonna leave me. And if you make it too hard, she's gonna be like Izzie and she'll walk.
        Meredith: Will you just sign the stupid paper?

      • Arizona: What are you doing here?
        Leah: You asked for a resident. I'm the only one available.
        Arizona (sighs): I'll do it myself.
        Leah: Are you actually gonna do that? You are going to refuse--
        Arizona: Leah, I cared for you. I liked you, and that's all that it was. And I am sorry that I hurt you. But if you're gonna come after my wife now because of the--
        Leah: I know what our relationship was. I'm not a child. I never thought of it in terms of work. It was you who brought it into the hospital. You told Dr. Torres about us, and Dr. Torres chose not to teach me in a moment that put a patient in danger. She made me put a patient in danger. So did you.
        Arizona: I-I never thought that--
        Leah: You were thinking about yourself. It wasn't safe, it wasn't fair, and I had to say something. Because it shouldn't happen again, to me or anyone.

      • Stephanie: That should be you down there.
        Jo: Who cares? I'm doing an organ recovery. Screw peds. I'll basically be on general, cardiothoracic, ortho, plastics and pulmonary in one operation.
        Stephanie: Wow. I've got to go up to H.R to fill out an accident report.
        Jo: Oh, for hitting Robbins with a gurney?
        Stephanie: For hitting Jackson with a gurney. (Jo looks shocked) Yeah. (they fist bump)

      • Cristina: I want to ask you about something, but there are all these new rules, and, uh, the act of me asking might be breaking them.
        Shane: You can ask.
        Cristina: There was a complaint.
        Shane: That's a question?
        Cristina: I thought it might be you.
        Shane: It wasn't.
        Cristina: I know, but it made me wonder if you ever felt compromised. Because I didn't want you to.
        Shane: I didn't.
        Cristina: Good. Oh, no, now that sounds like coercion. Like I'm telling you how you were supposed to feel.
        Shane: I didn't take it that way.
        Cristina: Really? You're not just saying that to curry favor?
        Shane: No, I'm not 'currying' anything.
        Cristina: Because you never have to do that. You don't have to get Shepherd coffee or fix Callie's baby schedule or... relax me. You're too good of a doctor for that. And when you look back in 10 years, you'll be relieved you didn't.
        Shane: I don't know if I'll even be a doctor in 10 years.
        Cristina: Oh, shut up. You will. You better.
        Shane: Now, that's coercion.

      • Arizona: Callie.
        Callie: No, it's fine. It's just one more thing today.
        Arizona: H.R wants to see you. Leah Murphy's complaint is against you. They wanted Hunt to tell you, but I asked if I could. I thought that I, you know--
        Callie: Okay, well, um... I, uh, have to push this amputation--
        Arizona: No, I'll take it off your plate. I mean, I'll do it. And you come find me when you're done? I'm-- I'm so sorry.
        Callie: You know, I just got through a malpractice suit. Now I have to deal with your jealous ex-girlfriend trying to ruin my reputation?! I swear to god, I can't take anymore of this!

      • Arizona: Hey. What happened?
        Cristina: Oscar had a flash pulmonary edema. His mitral valve blew. I'm gonna go fix it.
        Arizona: Ugh, I was stuck in H.R.
        Cristina: Is Murphy coming after you?
        Arizona: Worse, actually. Her complaint is against Callie.
        Cristina: Callie? Why?
        Arizona: I don't know. No, I mean, I know but I-I didn't want to believe it. (looks at the baby) Right. 'Oscar' 'cause you found him in the trash can.

      • Callie: They what?!
        Derek: They want my sensors proprietary to them... (Callie scoffs) Which means they can no longer be used for our research.
        Callie: Well, we can't do our research without them.
        Derek: I know.
        Callie: Well, what are you gonna do? This isn't gonna keep you from doing the project, is it? (Derek is silent) Ah.
        Derek: Callie, I never expected them to do this.
        Callie: Okay.
        Derek: I'm going to try and fight them on this, but in the meantime... You understand?
        Callie: Uh, I think so. You partnered up with me, but now you're taking our ball and you're gonna go play with your new friends. I understand that the last six months was a complete waste of my time. (walks out)
        Derek: She understands.

      • Callie: Hey. Herb Cramer just told me that you're pushing him toward an amputation for Alyssa.
        Arizona: No. I wasn't pushing anything, Callie, but, I mean, it's the right thing to do. And you've done pallative amputations before--
        Callie: Yeah, on a solider! (scoffs) A grown man. Not a child whose legs I have been trying to correct for three years!
        Arizona: And failing. I'm sorry. It's true. And honestly, I mean, before last year, I think that you would have seen it.
        Callie: Okay. So you think this is about you?
        Arizona: It's about Alyssa. It's not about me. But it's not about you, either.
        Callie: Why would you say that it's not about me? I didn't say that--
        Arizona: Because I am-- I-I think that you're afraid to do this amputation, and I'm afraid that that might be my fault.

      • Thom: Any word on my kidney? You were gonna give it some thought.
        April: Uh, I... no. No, I wasn't. (sees Owen walking by) Oh, Dr. Hunt! Do we return donor organs to donors when their recipient passes on?
        Owen: Absolutely not. UNOS is very strict about this. Um, why do you... want it?
        Thom: Well, it's the principle, isn't it? You know, these are not the terms of the agreement. I donated my organ for a purpose, to-- to filter my buddy's... pee or whatever it does. And-- And not it's just being discarded. So I- I think I have a right to get my kidney back.
        Owen: I'm not quite following is, um, your other kidney failing?
        Thom: It-- It could. You never know what's gonna happen, right?
        April: You're just fine, sir.
        Thom: Am I?
        April: Oh, wow, that's my pager vibrating. Is yours vibrating, too?
        Owen: Wh-- Oh, yeah, it is. It's urgent. Um, we're very sorry about your friend.

      • April: Did you get to talk to her?
        Jackson: No. I was on the floor.
        April: She didn't do it on purpose, did she?
        Jackson: No. No. I don't... think so. (sighs) Maybe. Well, what about you? Did you talk to Matthew?
        April: I left another message. Nicole said he quit, and then she called me a name. So that's all I know. Can you just talk to her, apologize for both of us?
        Jackson: I'm trying.

      • Meredith: Hey. I have to tell Karev that I stole his surgery.
        Derek: Oh, I have to tell Torres that the President won't let her use my sensors anymore.
        Meredith: Just tell her you made a promise to her, but instead, you're gonna spend your time and energy on something else. It worked when you told me.
        Derek: I thought we were gonna help each other.
        Meredith (chuckles): You left yourself wide open there. Callie's a grown-up. She knows how research works. Just tell her.
        Derek: And Karev will be... understanding about it.
        Meredith: Oh, no. I'm not telling him.

      • Meredith: Hey, Chief, can I talk to you for a second?
        Owen: Yeah, what is it, Grey?
        Meredith: So it's about Alex Karev.
        Owen (notices Arizona): Uh, sorry. Um, Robbins? Have you been up to H.R today?
        Arizona: Oh, no. I haven't had a chance. We've been developing a biliary diversion using the appendix.
        Owen: Right. I was gonna have all the interns observe. That is a pretty inventive approach. But, Robbins, H.R. needs that statement today.
        Arizona: Yeah, okay. Bailey, why don't you go on up without me? And by the time you have Jared on the table, I'll be done with this thing. And you should get someone to assist you, too.
        Bailey: Oh, uh, I'll take Grey.
        Meredith: Wait, no! (to Owen) Well, that's what I wanted to talk to you about, because it's Karev's case. It was his idea, so he should be on it.
        Owen: Karev's suspended. You're on it.
        Meredith (sarcastically): Terrific.

      • (Richard & Stephanie are helping Jackson walk to a bed)
        Jackson: Guys, I'm fine, okay?
        Stephanie: I'm so sorry.
        Jackson: No, no. You warned me to stay out of your way. Was Robbins your warm-up?
        Stephanie: I didn't do this on purpose.
        Richard: Edwards, I'm about to take his pants off, go be someplace where you won't be a danger to others. (closes curtains)
        April (opens curtains): What happened?!
        Stephanie: Oh, god.
        Richard: Um...
        Jackson: I'm fine, okay? I got hit by a gurney.

      • Nicole: You do any more bowling for doctors today?
        Stephanie: What? You heard?
        Nicole: Oh, it's all over the radio.
        Stephanie: Oh, my god.
        Nicole: Oh, I'm just saying the next time you do it, try and take out Kepner. (Stephanie is looking at Nicole and hits Jackson with the gurney) That'll work, too.

      • Cristina (about Emma): So, what's this I hear about you being an idiot You broke up with her? She was it, Owen. The picket fence, a dozen kids, fresh baked goods.
        Owen: I don't want to talk about that, okay?
        Cristina: Because you're dumb?
        Owen: No, because it's between her and me. And I hurt her, and I feel bad, so I don't want to talk about it.
        Cristina: Why throw that away? Is it because of what happened at the trailer? That was--
        Owen: Give me some credit. I know what that was.
        Cristina: Then why?
        Owen: Okay, alright. Why are you so upset about it? Hmm?
        Cristina: Uh, because.
        Owen: Because... why? Because of what happened in the trailer?
        Cristina: I don't care for the direction this is taking.
        Owen: I'll tell you if you tell me.
        Cristina: No.

      • Bailey (about Alex): He just came off his hinges when he saw you.
        Arizona: Yeah, there are two different looks that you get. Without the leg on, they feel sorry for you. And with the leg on, they think that you're amazing and brave. Yeah, or a robot.

      • Lloyd: And you're sending us the prototype of your asymmetrical sensor?
        Derek: Yeah. Sending it out today.
        Lloyd: Thank you. Thank you so much, and obviously, discontinue any other work you'll be doing with the sensors, and I will e-mail you a release for the patent.
        Derek: Wait, I'm sorry. 'Discontinue'? My work with Dr. Torres is ongoing.
        LLoyd: Uh, well, not with your sensors. They have to be propitery to the work that we're doing. Our N.I.H grant is dependent on that. You understand?
        Derek: I'm not sure Dr. Torres will. And I have to say, Lloyd, I don't like it.
        Lloyd: Uh, well, I'm, uh... I'm sorry, Derek, but it's pretty clear from our agreement-- we and the N.I.H hired you, and your sensors came with you.

      • Thom: Excuse me, doctor? This isn't the right time for this, I'm sure. I mean, there probably isn't one. But I-I feel like it can't wait.
        Owen: How can we help?
        Thom: Donny had a kidney transplant about four months ago.
        Owen: Yeah, we knew about that.
        Thom: That was me. I donated my kidney for him.
        April: Wow. That's... He was lucky to have friends like you.
        Thom: He was. Yeah. Uh, amazing. So, um... I was wondering about the kidney... Can I get that back?

      • April: But it's a donor organ so it can't be... regifted.
        Thom: I don't understand, though. It's mine.
        April: Yes, yes. It was yours, but then you gave it to him.
        Thom: And now he's not using it, and I'm still down one kidney. I loaned him my bike, I'm probably gonna get that back. I should wait a month or so.
        April: Sir, um, transplanting the kidney put a pretty big strain on the organ. To do it again would be risky for you and your kidney.
        Thom: See?
        April: His-- His kidney.
        Thom: You said 'my kidney.' You think I should get it back.
        April: Um... I actually-- have to be elsewhere.

      • Jo: What are you doing here? Go away.
        Alex: What are you doin'?
        Jo: Organ donor. I have to keep him alive until he's actually dead.
        Alex: Nice. I'm off peds, and Hunt's got you arranging a meat platter.
        Jo: I know. But I'm gonna show him. I'm going to keep his organs so healthy, someone could use his appendix. You should go, if Hunt shows up--
        Alex: We could use his appendix.
        Jo: It was a joke. We don't donate--
        Alex: No, that could work.
        Owen (walks in): Karev, don't make me turn three days into a week.
        Alex: Did I get too close to Wilson? Did an alarm go off somewhere?

      • Cristina: Did you notice anything about his mitral valve?
        Shane: I don't know.
        Cristina: Shane, come on. This is like a puzzle. I found the corner pieces. I need help with the sky.

      • Callie: I cannot believe you didn't back me up in there. I mean, a kid wants to cut off her legs!
        Arizona: I'm just suggesting that you don't dismiss it out of hand.
        Derek (walks up): Hey, Callie, you got a minute? Something kind of unexpected came up.
        Callie (to Derek): Hold on a sec. (to Arizona) Really? Because it sounds to me like you're asking me to just throw away three years' worth of hard work and investment in this girl, and just cut it off and throw it away like it never happened. And I don't want to do that. (to Derek) I'm sorry, Derek. What is it?
        Derek: Nothing, I'm good.

      • Alex: Three days, I'm suspended from surgery. You bang a co-worker, you get a house and two kids. I do it, and I get suspended.
        Meredith: I know. I'm a hypocrite, I've heard.
        Alex: I'm supposed to do a biliary diversion. I like this kid. I've been treating him for years. I want to make sure it's done right. But do me a favor, talk to Hunt. See if he'll start my stupid sentence tomorrow.
        Meredith: I will. I'm gonna talk to him.
        Alex: Thank you. You're a hypocrite and you suck!

      • Cristina: Hey, did you hear grumpy and hairball, found a baby in the trash?
        Meredith: Emma Marling came by to get a key for the trailer.
        Cristina: Why are you telling me this?
        Meredith: It's gossip. I'm gossiping.
        Cristina: Oh, okay. Shoot.
        Meredith: To get her things because her and Owen are through.
        Cristina: Through? Why?
        Meredith: I don't know. She didn't say. But I don't think it was her idea. I can't tell if you're happy or sad.
        Cristina: Neither can I.

      • (They are on the elevator together)
        Jackson: Did I hear you found a baby?
        Stephanie: Yes. In a box, abandoned.
        Jackson: Oh, is it alright?
        Stephanie: I don't know. I imagine it's pretty traumatized, having been suddenly left behind, thrown aside.
        Jackson: Stephanie--
        Stephanie: Dumped, as if it were, in the trash.
        Jackson: Would you please let me talk? (they elevator door opens)
        Stephanie: You-- You really want to get out of my way. (Jackson moves to the side, Stephanie gets off the elevator)

      • Arizona (about the dumpster baby): Did you cuddle him?
        Cristina: No, I have not.
        Arizona: If I were left in a cardboard box, all I'd want is cuddling, right?
        Cristina: Oh, I think I'd want a cardiac cath to confirm I've had a coarctation of my aorta. He is like a puzzle that I can't solve... (Arizona picks him up) ... If you're gonna do that.
        Arizona (to the baby): Do you have a coarcation of your aorta? Do you?
        Shane: No record of the baby being a former patient. The police are getting statements from Edwards and Wilson.
        Arizona (pager beeps): Oh, that's right. Um, I have a patient, so will you call me when you're done with his cath? Ross, will you take the baby?
        Shane: I'd rather not.
        Cristina: Ross, take the baby. (Arizona hands the baby to Shane and starts to walk away, her leg squeaks) Are you squeaking?
        Arizona: Long story. (walks out of the room)
        Shane: Can I put him down now?
        Cristina: No, she's right. He should be cuddled. You're not gonna hurt him. And I don't want to do it.

      • Jo: I understand that I broke a rule, but I don't think it's fair for this to affect my education.
        Owen: You spend more time in peds than any other service.
        Jo: Because I'm interested in peds!
        Owen: Yeah, well, I'm interested in giving you a well-rounded education. So today, you're in trauma. And this is your patient. Mr. Donald Mercer is an organ donor. He was injured in an MVC this morning. We're waiting the six hours to confirm the diagnosis of brain death. Now, you will make sure that his organs are in optimum condition for donation, and you will get to scrub in on the organ recovery. You got it?
        Jo: But that's like six surgeries in one.
        Owen: Mmhmm. Trauma's not so bad now, huh?

      • Bailey (walks in): What happened?!
        Arizona: Oh, I'm fine. I was walking, and--
        Owen (walks in): What happened?
        Arizona: I'm fine! I was-- I had an accident and my leg got broken, and someone's bringing me a spare. I'm fine.
        Stephanie (comes in holding Arizona's leg): Oh, god. I'm sorry. I got it-- I got the leg. I got it. Dr. Robbins, I am so sorry.
        Arizona: Edwards, you know what? You should go page cardio and do a work up on the baby.
        Jo: I'll go with her.
        Owen: Whoa, Wilson, what baby?
        Jo: We found a baby in the trash.
        Owen: No, you're not doing the work up.
        Jo: But it's my dumpster baby!
        Owen: You're not on peds. I have a patient for you.
        Arizona: Oh, Bailey, um, I have a Byler's biliary diversion surgery today, and I lost Karev, so can you assit?
        Bailey: You got it.
        Callie (walks in): Okay, everybody out. Please. (everyone leaves, to Arizona) Hey. (chuckles) Are you okay?
        Arizona: Yeah. My neck is a little sore, and my leg is totaled. Oh, geez. Now I have to wear my old beater leg.
        Callie: I thought you said this chafes you?
        Arizona: Well, it's better than nothing until my other one's fixed.
        Callie: Okay, here. (helps her put on the leg) Oh, um, can you make it to round on Alyssa Cramer?
        Arizona: The club-feet girl? She's back?
        Callie: Yeah, scar revision.
        Arizona: Okay. Um, hey, listen, H.R wants to talk to me. The anonymous harassment claim came from Leah Murphy.
        Callie (clears throat, and backs away): Alright. You good here?
        Arizona: Yeah. Thank you.

      • Stephanie (after she accidentally runs a gurney into Arizona): I'm sorry! I'm so sorry. Are you okay?
        Arizona: Oh, I think you broke my leg.
        Stephanie: Oh, my—Oh my, god!
        Arizona: It's alright. I have another one in my car.

      • Jo: Sorry about what I said. I was a complete jerk.
        Stephanie: I heard you got busted.
        Jo: Yep. I have to miss out on my education so they can keep me on a separate floor from Alex.
        Stephanie: See, I want that rule. If I find myself alone in the room with Jackson, I'm afraid I'm gonna nut punch him. So every time he has a consult in the E.R. today, I'm taking a break.
        Jo: You shouldn't. You should nut punch him. We'd all want to see that.
        Stephanie: He married her, Jo. One day, he's with me, the next day, he's not just with her, she's his wife. So, what the hell was I all that time, that he could just... toss me aside like garbage?

      • Cristina: I have nothing against Ross. I just don't think he should be on my service.
        Richard: Look, he needs to feel that he has your support. He's trying to find his footing.
        Cristina: I know, and I think he lost it because I was not the best influence. Also, we had... Inappropriate--
        Richard: Shenanigans. I know. That's what the rule is for, Dr. Yang, so we can work together without the shenanigans.
        Cristina: I think it's a bad idea, sir, and I think the Chief will, too.
        Richard: Huh. Well, the Chief asked me to keep an eye on Ross. So it's my call, not his. And as far as you're concerned, Dr. Yang, I am still and will always be The Chief.
        Cristina: Yes, sir.

      • Callie: Hey, Derek! Are you coming by the lab today? We're starting to lose all our phase two momentum.
        Derek: Yeah. Actually, they're setting up my new office today. Oh, you know what? I got to grab a sensor. The guys are going to duplicate one.
        Callie: Ah, yes. The Washington guys, mappin' the brain. You are still gonna have time to do this too, though, right?
        Derek: Yeah. I hope so. I plan to.
        Callie: Alright. Well, let me know when you're ready. (walks away)
        Meredith (to Derek): 'Oh, yeah, call me, we'll hang out.' I haven't seen a blowoff like that since high school.
        Derek: It was not a blowoff.

      • Arizona: Wilson, go check on his coags before we go to surgery.
        Owen (walks up): You're gonna need to assign someone else. Wilson's no longer in peds.
        Alex: Why?
        Jo: What?
        Owen: You are suspended from surgery.
        Alex: What?
        Owen: You broke the non-fraternization rule. And it was just gonna be a slap on the wrist, Karev, until you decided to give the board the finger. Three days, no surgery. Wilson, the E.R.
        Alex: I have my byler's kid. You're gonna let this rule mess with patient care?
        Owen: Robbins can take that case. (Alex & Jo walk away)
        Arizona (sarcastically): Thanks. Makes my day real easy.
        Owen: Well, I'm afraid it's about to get harder. H.R wants to talk to you today.
        Arizona: H.R?
        Owen: The anonymous harassment complaint came from Leah Murphy.
        Arizona: Oh, god.
        Owen: Yeah, and legally, H.R has to investigate, and they want you to answer some questions. And it might be the end of it.
        Arizona: And if it's not? (Owen sighs) I have no time for this today.
        Owen: No contact with Murphy, okay? (walks away, Arizona shakes her head)

      • Callie (as Arizona is using a blow dryer to dry her leg): Um, explain, please.
        Arizona: Oh, Sophia got fruit juice all over it. And, you know, she could fry the mircoprocessor in here. Now I'm gonna be late. And I told her not to play with my leg!
        Callie: Uh, no you haven't-- Actually-- ever. Hey, um, I found these. Um, where should I put them?
        Arizona: What?
        Callie (holds up her Heelys): Your wheelie sneaks.
        Arizona: Oh, trash.
        Callie: Really?
        Arizona: Yeah. Callie, it's fine.

      • Meredith: (closing voiceover) Why does it feel so good to get rid of things to unload, to let go? Maybe because when we see how little we actually need to survive, it makes us realize how powerful we actually are. To strip down to only what we need, to hang on only to what we can't do without. What we need not just to survive but to thrive.

      • Meredith: (opening voiceover) You know your tailbone? It used to be a tail. That pink part in the corner of your eye? It used to be a third eyelid. The appendix used to help us digest tough foods. Now it does nothing. The story of our evolution is the story of what we leave behind, what we've discarded. Our bodies only hang on to the things we absolutely need. The things we no longer have use for we give up, we let go.
