  • Season 8 Episode 13: If/Then

  • Cristina: We don't have to do that thing where I say something then you say something and then someone cries and there's a moment or whatever?
    Meredith: Oh, yuck.
    Cristina: Good.
    Meredith: It's just that... Nothing is turning out the way I thought it would. It's like I don't even recognize my own life.
    Cristina: I know what you mean. Ugh. I gotta go get some sleep. You gotta go get some sleep. You look like crap.
    Meredith: I look better than you.
    Cristina: Not possible


    This entire conversation is a refernce to the conversation the had in the first episode A Hard Day's Night. Conversation from A Hard Day's Night:


    Cristina: We don't have to do that thing you know where I say something and then you say something and then somebody cries and there's like a moment ...
    Meredith: Yeah.
    Cristina: Good... You should get some sleep. You look like crap.
    Meredith: I look better than you.
    Cristina: Not possible.

  • The residents calling Derek, McDreary is a refernce to him being called McDreamy by the residents in early seasons.

  • Meredith: So, how about tonight you're not McDreary? You're just... You're just a guy in a bar.
    Derek: And you're just a girl in a bar?


    A refernce to when Meredith and Derek first meet in the bar. Derek is also wearing the same red shirt he wore when they first meet.

  • Charles: Oh, god. Just shoot me now.


    Refernce to the season sixepisodesSantuary &Death and All of His Friends. Charles gets shot in Santuary by the gunman and later dies in Death and All of His Friends.

  • Alex: ...and O'Malley. 007. He, uh, failed his intern exam was never seen again.


    Refernce to everyone calling George 007 when he screwed up an appy on his first day as an intern in the first episode A Hard Day's Night. George then failed his intern test in the season 3 finale Didn't We Almost Have it All?

  • Alex: I always say, never mess with the crazy chicks


    Inside joke reference to Alex always dating chicks who go crazy. Alex dated Ava/Rebecca in season 4. And then Izzie when she kept seeing Denny in season 5.

  • Meredith (about Izzie): She was a girl in our class who was sleeping with a patient. And then she stole a transplant heart for him.


    Refernce to season 2 when Izzie fell in love with Denny and then cut his L.V.A.D wires so he would move up on the transplant list and get a heart.

  • Jackson (about Cristina): Her and Preston Burke? Really?
    Meredith: And apparently it was so scary for him, he actually had to leave the state.


    This is a refernce to the first three seasons of the show in which Cristina dated Burke. Mer's comment about Burke leaving the state is a reference to the season 3 finale Didn't We Almost Have it All? where Burke leaves Cristina at the alter on their wedding day.


  • Bailey being a nervous push over is a nod to when we saw her as an intern (when she was a pushover) in the season 6 episode The Time Warp.


    Also, Alex calling Bailey, Mandy is a refernce to when she was called that as a nervous intern.

  • Goof: Richard, Bailey, Cristina and a med student are in a room looking at a pheochromocytoma on an abdominal MRI scan. The medical student points to the transverse colon asking if that is the tumor. Cristina tells him it's the gallbladder. The gallbladder isn't even in the image they are pointing to. Also, Cristina later points out the kidney, "adrenal gland" and tumor, even though neither of the adrenal glands is actually present in that particular slice. However, the right kidney does demonstrate a round soft tissue lesion.

  • Season 7 Episode 11: Disarm

  • If you look closely at the choir singing outside the hospital, you'll notice that it is the same group of 20 to 30 people digitally multiplied to create the illusion of a mass crowd.
