Season 7[edit]

Shock to the System [7.2][edit]

Meredith: They say lightning never strikes twice, but that's a myth. It doesn't happen often. Lightning usually gets it right the first time. When you're hit with 30 amps of electricity you feel it. It can make you forget who you are, can burn you, blind you, stop your heart and cause massive internal injuries. It can change your life forever.

Meredith: [angry] Go hug yourself!

Meredith: Cristina. Cristina!
Cristina: I can't be in here. I can't.
Meredith: Okay so let's go, let's get out of here.
Cristina: I can't... I can't feel anything.
Meredith: I know, I know. Come with me.
Cristina: No, no, I can't move. I can't move my legs. I can't, I can't feel anything.
Meredith: Uh, feel me hand, take my hand. Do you feel that?
Cristina: Uhuh.
Meredith: Okay. You're okay. We're gonna go when you're ready. Okay? So you tell me when you're ready. Okay?

Derek: Hey I've heard about Cristina. Is she alright?
Meredith: No, she's not alright. No one is alright. That idiot is clearing everyone for surgery like they're fine and they're not fine.
Derek: Stop, stop it, I need to talk to you.
Meredith: Just leave it alone Derek, it was one night in jail, you drive too fast, just forget about it!
Derek: I don't wanna talk about that, don't worry about that.
Meredith: (teary eyed) Don't worry about it? All I do is worry. All the time, I spend every minute of every day worrying that I'm gonna get a phone-call that you've wrapped your car around a pole. That's why I left you in jail. So that just for a little while I would know that you weren't dying like you were dying on that table. That's what I think about every time you pull out of the driveway.
Derek: I'm right here. I'm okay. We're okay.
Meredith: I was pregnant. That day, I was pregnant, and I lost it.
Derek: I... (pause) You didn't say anything. I could've helped you.
Meredith: If you wanna help me, your driving is something you can control. Just do that. Just do that. (They kiss and hug)

Meredith: [voiceover] Lightning doesn’t often strike twice. It’s a once in a lifetime thing. Even if it feels like the shock is coming over and over again. Eventually the pain will go away, the shock will wear off. And you start to heal yourself. To recover from something you never saw coming. But, sometimes the odds are in your favor. If you’re in just the right place at just the right time you can take a helluva hit. And still have a shot at surviving

Superfreak [7.3][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] Most surgeons grew up being freaks. While other kids played outside, we hold up in our rooms, memorizing the periodic table, hovering for hour over our genuine microscopes, dissecting our first frogs. Imagine how surprised and relieved we were when we grew up and found out that others out there are just as freaky as we were. Same microscopes, same dead frogs, same inexplicable urge to take human beings apart.

Meredith: I think they're talking about you. It's going to be okay. They can't kick you out of the program for being traumatized.
Cristina: I don't care what they do.
Derek: Dr. Yang you're with me.
Meredith: What, no, I'm with you?
Derek: You have someone else. We're walking Dr. Yang.

Mark: So what are you doing in Seattle?
Amelia: Uh, Derek's an ass who won't return my calls. Derek's an ass who got shot and won't return my calls. So I brought him a present, a bribe..or a peace offering...whatever. I brought him that. [points to a man standing nearby]
Mark: You brought him Brett Favre?
Amelia: [grins excitedly] No! I brought him a brain tumor!

Mark: [introducing Amelia to Cristina and Meredith] Amy, Amelia, she's also a neurosurgeon.
Cristina: Another one? You Shepherds grow them like weeds.

Derek: We were in the back of the store. Dad has just given you two pennies. And you always hid them behind the counter in this big crack in the floorboards. You said you're saving them so you could buy a town. And then the two guys came in, we could hear them talking but we weren't paying attention until dad yelled. And you looked up. They had already pulled the gun, and they had already taken the money… And now they wanted the watch that mom gave him. He wouldn't give it up. It was a gunshot, you lunched forward…
Amelia: I remember, I was trying to get to him but… I couldn't move.
Derek: Because I was holding you so tight that you couldn't budge. Put one hand over your mouth so you wouldn't scream and wrapped the other one around you and just held on for your life. Prayed to God that you would be quiet and wouldn't say anything. You were so little. I think that's what I've always wanted all this year, you just to stay… little and quiet and safe. But you're not any of those things. You're loud and fearless and that scared the crap out of me. How am I supposed to call you and tell you that I've been shot? I can't tell you about my pain. I don't want you to know that the pain exists. (he hugs her)

Arizona: We're gonna live in a frat house forever, aren't we?
Callie: Hey, no, Meredith's is a frat house. Our place is just that off-campus apartment where the burn-outs go to buy pot.

April: I'm a virgin. That doesn't make it drinks conversation. We all have stuff we don't talk about.
Meredith: Oh April. I'm liking you more and more.
April: Thank you.

Meredith: [voiceover] Nobody chooses to be a freak. Most people don't even realize they're freak until it's too late to change it. But no matter how much of a freak you end up being, chances are there's still someone out there for you. Unless of course they've already moved on. Because when it comes to love, even freaks can't wait forever.

Can't Fight Biology [7.4][edit]

Meredith: Biology determines much of the way we live. From the moment we're born we know how to breathe and eat. As we grow older, new instincts kick in. We become territorial, we seek shelter… And most important of all, we reproduce. Sometimes biology can turn on us though. Yeah, biology sucks sometimes.

Meredith: I need you to take my blood.
Cristina: For what?
Meredith: So I can get tested for the Alzheimer's gene. I mean it's time I know one way or the other. I have a hostile uterus. What's a little Alzheimer's too?
Cristina: Alright. This is a lot bigger than a baby step.
Meredith: Just do it before I change my mind.
Cristina: Okay.

Arizona: Mark stares at my boobs when we talk. He starts at my face, but then somewhere along the way, he gets distracted and ends up on my boobs. I love guys - I love them. But I've tried my whole life to avoid the boob-staring guy. Biology even helped me by making me gay. But now, my girlfriend's best friend is that guy. And I don't think that I need to apologize for the fact that the only person I want staring at my boobs is you.
Callie: Boobs... really, you're making this about boobs?
Arizona: He stares at them.
Callie: 'Cos they're good boobs!

Derek: I love you and you love me. And whatever happens, I don't care. I don't want to know. I mean it. I don't want to know.
Meredith: The lab already has my blood, so..
Derek: Here's what we're gonna do. No more doctors, no more labs. You and I, we have a lot of sex. Maybe we'll make a baby, maybe not. Maybe you get Alzheimer's, maybe not. Just screw the odds, screw science. Let's just live. Whatever happens. Happens. Me and you. Okay?
Meredith: Okay.
Derek: Okay.

Meredith: [voiceover] Biology says that we are who we are from birth. That our DNA is set in stone. Unchangeable. Our DNA doesn't account for all of us though. Life changes us. We develop new trades. Become less territorial. We stop competing. We learn from our mistakes. We face our greatest fears. For better or worse. We find ways to change our biology. The risk, of course is that we can change to much, to the point we don't recognize ourselves. Finding a way back can be difficult. There is no compass, no map. We just have to close our eyes, take a step and hope to God we'll get there.

Almost Grown [7.5][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] They train doctors slowly. They watch us practice on frogs, and pigs, and dead people, and then live people. They drill us relentlessly. They raise us like children. And eventually, they take a cold, hard boot, and they kick us out of the nest.

Owen: I like the dark new scrubs on you. You look good. Are you okay?
Cristina: My patient deserves a doctor.
Owen: You don't have to cut, no one's asked you to...
Cristina: I know what's being asked of me and I'm doing it.

Lexie: Did you just stop that bleeder?
Meredith: Uh-huh.
Lexie: How did you even know to do that?
Derek: Okay. Sorry I'm late.
Meredith: That's okay. Lexie made a good call. I've got it under control.
Derek: What do we got?
Meredith: Let me finish, Derek. I got this.
Derek: Yes, you do.

Derek: I'm gonna find a cure for Alzheimer's.
Chief: The cure for Alzheimer's... With $1 million?
Derek: With $1 million. It's a start.
Chief: You're talking about a clinical trial, A clinical-surgical trial?
Derek: Yes.
Chief: Start-up costs alone, never mind the FDA, Derek, it's...
Derek: Today I watched Meredith perform an emergency craniotomy by herself. She was perfect. She's got her mother's talent. She's got her mother's looks, Richard. What if she has her mother's disease? Ellis was young when it started. Every time Meredith forgets her keys or asks what day of the week it is, I... When that $1 million runs out, investors are gonna throw money my way for the same reason I am gonna throw everything I got at this trial - because their dad has it or their wife. Breakthroughs don't happen because of the medicine. Real breakthroughs happen because someone is scared to death to stop trying.

Meredith: [voiceover] We all want to grow up. We're desperate to get there, to grab all the opportunities we can... to live. We're so busy trying to get out of that nest... We don't think about the fact that it's going to be cold out there... really freakin' cold. Because growing up sometimes means leaving people behind. And by the time we stand on our own two feet... we're standing there alone.

These Arms Of Mine [7.6][edit]

Derek: Doctor Yang and my wife sometimes have sleepovers, in my bed, with me in it.

Cristina: Being a hero has its price.

That's Me Trying [7.7][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] Question: When was the last time a complete stranger took off her clothes in front of you, pointed to a big purple splotch on her back, and asked, "What the hell is this thing?" If you're a normal person, the answer is hopefully "never". If you're a doctor, the answer is probably about five minutes ago. People expect doctors to have all of the answers. The truth is we love to think that we have all of the answers too. Basically doctors are know-it-alls until something comes along that reminds us we're not.

Callie Okay. Fine. I don't want to go to Africa. But I do wanna be with you. Okay? So, I'm really trying it. We'll miss our plane, let's go. Oh my god! Okay, you wanna fight? The flight is eighteen hours, we can fight on the plane.
Arizona You're ruining this for me. And I don't wanna do this.
Callie: What? What does that mean? What, you suddenly don't wanna go?
Arizona: I - I don't wanna go to Africa with you.
Callie: Arizona. No, okay? No.
Arizona: I'm sorry. I'm sorry.
Callie: You're sorry, you're sorry? It's three years.
Arizona: I'm gonna miss my plane. You take care of yourself.
Callie: No. No! Please. Please I can - we can do this, we can figure this out.
Arizona: You stay here and be happy. And I'll go there and be happy.
Callie: If you get on that plane, if you go without me, we are done. Do you hear me? We are over.
Arizona: We're standing in the middle of an airport, screaming at each other. We are already over.

April: (to Hunt, working outside during trauma training) Sir! You said the helicopter was gonna be here hours ago, And it's not here, and I'm not complaining, but where is it?
Hunt:Well, the rain's still pretty bad. Probably got caught in a hail storm. (Intern Steve approaches with index card update on "patient's" condition)
April: No! No! I know what that card is gonna say. It's gonna say he has cardiac tamponade with associated hypotension and bradycardia, but he can't, 'cause I already did a pericardiocentesis and bolused him with IV fluids.
Steve: She's right. What do I do? Do I ...
April: Karev! Grab his feet. (Karev goes to grab Steve's feet) The patient! Come on!
Hunt: Hey, hey, hey. Whoa, whoa, whoa.
Alex: That's awesome! (helping to load dummy onto ambulance)
Hunt: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What do you think you're doing? This ambulance is not in play.
April: Oh, you're just making stuff up, which I can do too! And I say it is in play. Can't fit nine patients on an ambulance, but two will fit just fine. Seven of my patients may have died today, but these two won't! 'Cause I'm gonna get them on this ambulance, And I'm gonna take 'em to that hospital right there!
Alex: Alright! (closes ambulance doors)
Hunt: Kepner, this ambulance was involved in the accident and no longer runs.
April: There are keys in the ignition, so let's see. Looks like I got triple-A. Ha! Apparently they could get here when the helicopter couldn't. Now MOVE! Or I will run you down!
Hunt: (to Alex) Go. Let's go. (They run to hospital entrance. Ambulance pulls up)
April: John Doe, multiple chest and extremity trauma. Still hypotensive despite two large-bore IVs started in the field.
Hunt: All right, Kepner. That's enough.
April: We need a full workup and likely a thoracotomy. (walks into hospital carrying dummy over her shoulder) I suspect active bleeding in the chest.
Alex: Will you tell us we won, or she's never gonna stop.
Hunt: It's not a contest.
April: Karev! Call the OR and make sure that there's a room available.
Alex: (pointedly to Hunt) Will do.
Hunt: All right, all right, fine. Blue team wins.
April: Blue team wins?
Hunt: Yeah, yeah, yeah, you win. He's gonna live for 40 more years and have 15 grandkids. You happy?
April: (drops dummy) Blue team wins!
Hunt: Yes.
April: (hugs Alex) Yeah!

Meredith: [voiceover] We're all looking for answers in medicine, in life, in everything. Sometimes the answers we're looking for have been hiding just below the surface. Other times we find answers when we didn't even realize we were asking the question. Sometimes the answers can catch us completely by surprise. And sometimes, even when we find the answer we've been looking for, we're still left with a whole hell of a lot of questions.

Something's Gotta Give [7.8][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] The human body is a highly pressurized system the blood pressure measures the force of blood pulsating through the arteries. It's important to keep this pressure regulated low or inadequate pressure can cause weakness or failure. It's when the pressure gets too high that problems really occur. If the pressure continues to increase, a closer examination is called for because it's the best indicator that something is going terribly wrong.

Bailey: Why do we so many post-op fistulas after pancreas surgeries? I mean, your operation is flawless. It doesn't matter. We still see fistulas in what? 20 percent of patients? I- I think there's a way to bring that number down. I just gotta find it.
Richard: Miranda...
Bailey: I needed a win, sir. I've got a string of big losses and I could use a win, that's all. Yang... Yang was the one I didn't have to worry about.
Richard: I know. I know. Look into the pancreatectmy patients, figure it out and then let me know how I can help.
Bailey: Uh, can I use Avery? He actually gave me the idea. He was great today.
Richard: That's good to know. You know, Alex Karev saved a baby's life with a ping pong ball?
Bailey: A ping pong ball?
Richard: Yes, he did.
Bailey: Hmm. Alex Karev.

Meredith: [voiceover] Every pressurized system needs a relief valve, there has to be a way to reduce the stress, the tension before it becomes too much to bear. There has to be a way to find relief because if the pressure doesn't find a way out it'll make one. It will explode. It's the pressure we put on ourselves that's the hardest to bear. The pressure to be better than we are. The pressure to be better than we think we can be. It never ever lets up. It just builds and builds and builds. We never know.

Slow Night, So Long [7.9][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] We doctors, take pride in the fact that we can basically sleep standing up. Anytime, anywhere. But it's a false pride because the truth is, after about 20 hours without sleep, you might as well just come to work drunk, doctor, or not. So, it's no wonder that fatal medical errors increase at night. When we doctors are, proudly, sleeping on our feet. Recently, our communal pride has been shattered, and our egos have been wounded by new laws that require that we sleep all day before we work all night. We're not happy about it. But as someone who might one day need medical care, you really should be.

[Teddy joins Mark, Callie, Miranda and Derek for a drink after her date]
Teddy: Okay, so get this...his very first question: "So what's your favorite food?"
Mark: What'd you say?
Teddy: French, but that's not the point. Why would he ask me what my favorite food was? Like he read that that's some good icebreaker from some internet handbook that was handed out at the loser fair?!
Derek: This is why you don't meet people on the internet.
Teddy: You're married! You don't get to have an opinion about my pathetic forays into internet dating.

Meredith: Remember when the chief said only two of us would make it?
Alex and Meredith: I thought it would be me and Cristina.

Avery: Nice face.
Alex: At least I can do surgery. How's that hand?
Avery: It'd be better if you hadn't run your face into it.

Derek: [about Cristina] If she's going to act like a stripper, I'm going to act like a bouncer.

Meredith: [voiceover] Under the cover of darkness, people do things they'd never do under the harsh glare of day. Decisions feel wiser, people feel bolder. But when the sun rises, you have to take responsibility for what you did in the dark and face yourself under the cold, harsh light of day.

Adrift and at Peace [7.10][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] The first 24 hours after surgery are critical. Every breath you take, every fluid you make, is meticulously reported and analyzed. Celebrated or mourned. But what about the next 24 hours? What happens with that first day turns to two and weeks turn into months? What happens when the immediate danger has passed, when the machines are disconnected and the teams of doctors and nurses are gone? Surgery is when you get saved, but post-op, after surgery, is when you heal. But, what if you don't?

Callie: I am stubbornly choosing to believe that not all people are evil and bad and leave me at airports.

Callie: [hears a knock at the door] Mark, did you forget your keys? [opens the door and sees it's Arizona]
Arizona: O.K., so picture this, I'm in Africa and everything's great and the people are so nice and the clinic is amazing and I'm doing work that actually feels important, like I can actually see that I'm making a difference but I'm crying, like constantly, and then this guy that I work with at the clinic, he finally asks me what's wrong and I say that I miss my girlfriend, like I really miss her and so he asks me if I want to go back and that if they could replace me and then I open my mouth to say 'no' but what comes out really instead is 'yes'. And so they did and then I came back. You look really pretty.
Callie: [closes the door in Arizona's face]

Owen: Do you want to know what I think? I think you are reckless. I think you are reckless with your own life and today you were reckless with a patient's life. I don't care who you are. I don't want that in my OR, and I don't want that around my wife who is struggling just to hold on.
Meredith: Your wife is struggling just to hold on because you married her and let it be OK for her to completely fall apart.
Owen: You are fearless, and I don't mean that in a good way. Most people don't tell the guy with the gun to shoot them. Most people are like Cristina. Most people are afraid. So what she needs isn't what you need. She isn't you, Meredith.

Teddy: I have great medical insurance.
Henry: Way to kick a guy when he's down.
Teddy: I'm... I'm saying... I'm saying that I'll marry you.
Henry: Uh, that's a really generous offer, but I can't.
Teddy: I'm a doctor. I took an oath, and I can't leave you now anymore than I could leave you bleeding out in the street.
Henry: You are gonna regret it deeply in the morning.
Teddy: You are dying.

Meredith: [voiceover] The goal of any surgery is total recovery - to come out better than you were before. Some patients heal quickly and feel immediate relief. For others the healing happens gradually, and it's not until months or even years later that you realize you don't hurt anymore. So the challenge after any surgery is to be patient. But if you can make it through the first weeks and months, if you believe that healing is possible, then you can get your life back. But that's a big if.

Lexie: I know I agreed to have a drink with you but as I walked here I realized how unfair that was. You know, it-- It's unfair to you it's unfair to me, because... really nothing has changed. You're-- You're still in a very different place in your life than I am. And you want different things. (Mark kisses her)
Jackson: Oh, Lexie, I just got page, Bailey just wants us back in the ICU.
Lexie: Oh, uh can you just deal with it, please? (Jackson leaves)

Lexie: Okay, can you two stop being impressed by him? It's a fluke. He's mean.
April: I think he's kinda hot. Can you say that about a nurse?
Lexie: No.

Mark: What's the emergency?
Lexie: Oh, uh I need a favor. A nurse hates me.
Mark: Your a resident. I'm sure all the nurses hate you.
Lexie: Yes, well they love you.
Mark: I think you love me.
Lexie: Fine. Okay. Whatever. Can you please just talk to him? Smooth things over, so that when I go to take my patient back to radiology and get his drain put back in, he doesn't make a scene?
Mark: Fine. I'll talk to him. But you gotta meet me at Joe's tonight for a drink.
Lexie: You are unbelievable.
Mark: That's why you love me, 'cause I'm unbelievable.
Lexie: You and I... We don't work, okay? We've been through this.
Mark: One drink.
Lexie: Fine. One drink. (sees Eli) Oh, okay, there he is.
Mark: Eli? Two drinks.
Lexie: Fine.

Mark: Look, I don't know what's going on here but I know better than to mess with you on turf so do me a solid, nod and act as if we're havin' a big debate here 'cause Dr. Grey over there, she agreed to go out with me if I talked to you.
Eli: She's bossy.
Mark: I know, I dig it.
Eli: What's in it for me?
Mark: Seahawks. Sunday, box seats.
Eli: Parking?
Mark: Of course.
Eli: Okay. (shouts) Unless Dr. Bailey herself orders that drain put back in I...
Mark: Now mention how highly I think of her.
Eli: ... I don't care if you think Dr. Grey is the best resident you've ever seen come through this program.
Mark: I understand, and I respect that. Thank you. (walks back to Lexie) Ah, I did what I could. What time do you get off?
Lexie: What?! That's it? You didn't do anything!
Mark: See you at nine. (walks off)
Jackson: You're going out with Sloan tonight?
Lexie: One drink. And then you are gonna interrupt us and tell me that there is a medicial emergency.
Jackson: There might be a medicial emergency if you don't get that drain put back in your guy. I'm just sayin'. I guess you can observe when I'm taking out that galbladder through dude's mouth.

Eli: Look, if Dr. Bailey wants it put back in, then I will.
Lexie: She's in surgery.
Eli: Well, then it'll just have to wait.
Lexie: Fine. I'll do it myself.
Eli: You're not touching that patient.
Lexie: Excuse me?
Eli: You have your list. But I have 12 years of experience that tell me putting that drain back in right now could actually put him at more risk for infection. 12 years I've been here. 12 years. Now, you residents, you come and go, but this is my home and you are my guest, and right now you are no longer welcome.

Jackson: Anybody want my soup? It's reminding me of pancreatic fluid.
Lexie: Oh, then I definitely want it.
April: Sparkle. ... That was the name of my pony.

Lexie: Hey, morning, Eli. Did you send Mr. Rabb's sample of pancreatic fluid to the lab yet?
Eli: Not yet.
Lexie: Uh, I asked for it over an hour ago.
Eli: Yeah, I was letting him rest. He didn't sleep much last night.
Jackson: Dr. Grey. Check out Mrs. K, day 3 post-op, no fistula. Already walking right away, eating right away, isn't that right, Mrs. K?
Mrs. K: Can I go back to bed now? I'm tired.
Jackson: One more lap. (walks off with Mrs. K)
Lexie: That's terrible.
April (walks up): Okay, there is no evidence that shows getting patient's up any faster makes a difference at all.
Lexie: How's it going with your protocol? (April opens her a chart) Ooh-kay. Added just another medicine to your drug regamin there, huh?
April: Yeah, well, if you call actritide just another medicine. So, you still working with a little list?
Lexie: Yeah. Standard post-op protocol with a check list I've started with accountability.
April: Oh my gosh, you know, when I was little, I- I wanted a pony too, and you know what happened? I, uh, worked really hard, and I got one. (walks off)
Lexie (to Eli): Mr. Rabb probably can't sleep at night 'cause you're letting him sleep during the day. Get the fluid sample now.

Mark: Hi.
Lexie: Hi.
Mark: I miss you.
Lexie: Mark...
Mark: What are you saying, you don't miss me?
Lexie: Pretty much what I'm sayin'.
Mark: You seein' someone?
Lexie: Yes. His name's Andrew Rabb, he had a tumor removed from his pancreas three days ago and I'm trying to make sure he doesn't develop a fistula.
Mark: Go. Cure fistulas. Or fistula.
Lexie: Fistulas.
Mark: I miss you.

Disarm [7.11][edit]

Meredith [voiceover] To a degree, medicine is a science...but I would argue that it's also an art. The doctors who see medicine as a science only, you don't want them by your side when you're bleeding won't stop or when your child is screaming in pain. The clinicians go by the book. The artists follow their guts. The artists feel your pain and they go to extremes to make it stop. Extreme measures. That's where science ends and art begins.

Meredith: I'm too mad to even look at you.
Derek: Then roll over.

Arizona: I am so deeply, deeply, deeply sorry for hurting you so much. I am so sorry because I'm so in love with you, and I will spend the rest of my life telling you that. I'll apologize to you every day if that's what you need, but, please, please don't walk away again. I came across the world to be with you. I love you. Please.
Callie: You had to fly across the world to get to me Arizona because you flew a whole world away without ever looking back. You just left. And this might be news to you — no, I think it kinda is — but you're not the only one in this relationship. There are two of us, and you came back today but I didn't.

Cristina: Do you wanna get a drink?
Meredith: Yeah, I do. I mean, not a real drink actually, because I'm trying to get pregnant and supposedly alcohol will make my baby have three heads and sixteen toes.
Cristina: Umm, wanna get some crack cocaine?

Meredith [voiceover] Surgery is extreme. We cut into your body, take out pieces, and put what's left back together. Good thing life doesn't come with a scalpel because if it did, when things started to hurt, we would just cut and cut and cut. The thing is what we take away with a scalpel we can't ever get back. So, like a said, good thing.

Start Me Up [7.12][edit]

Meredith [voiceover] People are really romantic about the beginnings of things. Fresh start, clean slate, a world of possibility. But no matter what new adventure you're embarking on, you're still you. You bring you into every new beginning in your life. So how different can it possibly be?

Arizona: Well, now I'm your subletter. Hooray?
Callie: My lack of interest in seeing you is not a strategy. I'm not playing hard to get. I don't want to see you because I turned my life upside down for you and you walked away because for a week I was cranky. You're untrustworthy, so I don't want to see you. You're self-centered, so I don't want to see you. I am a hundred percent certain that if I let you back in my life again you will hurt me again, so I don't want to see you. This isn't a ploy. I'm not pouting. I don't want you in my life. Get your crap out of my apartment.

Cristina: It's like court-ordered community service.
Meredith: I'd rather be picking up trash off the side of the highway.

Arizona: I bail. Okay, when things get hard I... I walk away, maybe it's because I grew up an army brat and we moved every 18 months. Maybe I never learned to commit, but I'm here now, and I'm staying because I'm gonna fight to make sure you know that I'm commited to this thing. I'm not perfect but neither are you, and you... you wanna talk about faults? How about not being able to forgive? At some point your gonna have to forgive me, and it may as well be now because I am in love with you Calliope and you are in love with me and all I'm asking for is one more chance.
Callie: You want another chance?
Arizona: Yes. More than anything, I want another chance.
Callie: Today I found out that I'm pregnant. With Mark's baby. How about now?

Meredith [voiceover] It's all anybody wants, right? Clean slate, a new beginning. Like that's gonna be any easier. Ask the guy pushing the boulder up the hill. Nothing is easy about starting over. Nothing at all.

Don't Deceive Me (Please Don't Go) [7.13][edit]

Meredith [voiceover] Doctors practice deception all the time. We give vague answers to hard questions. We don't talk about post-op pain. We say you'll experience some discomfort. If you didn't die, we tell you that surgery went well. But the placebo has to be the doctor's greatest deception. Half of our patients we tell the truth, the other half, we pray that the placebo effect is real. And we tell ourselves that they'll feel better anyhow. Believing help is on the way, when in fact, we're leaving them to die.

Derek: How can Meredith and I try for months and not have any luck and you look at someone and a baby appears.
Mark: Sloans are unusually fertile.

Arizona: [to Callie] Shut up. Just shut up. You don't get to tell me that we're not together. We are together. Because I love you and you love me, and none of the rest of it matters. We are together. And if you ever sleep with anyone else again, man or woman, I will kick the crap out of you. Now you sit your ass back down there because that's my baby in there. I don't want anything happening to my baby.
Callie: [smiling] Your baby, huh?
Arizona: [smiles back] Our baby.

Alex: [to Derek] You need to get over this thing where you're just thinking of her as your wife, because your wife is the only person twisted enough to handle this crap.

Meredith [voiceover] Doctors practice deception every day. On our patients, on their families… But the worst deception we practice is on ourselves. Which is why sometimes it takes us a while to realize that the truth has been in front of us the whole time.

Lexie: I'm putting in targon, not that I have any idea what targon tastes like but I think when people use targon it makes them seem like they know what they're doing. Basil can't do that. Anybody can sling some basil around the kitchen.
Mark: Callie's pregnant.
Lexie: Oh my God, that's great. She loves babies. Did- Did they do a turkey baster thing or- or something? I mean, wait a minute, okay, so wait. Arizona just got back... and they, we're they doing this, wait was this before... (looks at Mark who's looking down, then he looks at her, she realizes)
Mark: I saw the heart beat today. This is my kid, this is a part of me. ... Please, is there any way we can...
Lexie: (teary eyed) How the hell did you get me in this position... (slams counter) twice?! It... It is... Unbelievable. You are unbelievable!

Lexie: (looking at twitter) Mayo Clinic says 'good luck', Cleveland clinic sent you a whole bunch of smiley faces, and there's a resident from Sydney, Austrailia joining us for the very first time. Yay, Sydney!
Bailey: Turn if off, Grey. Chief's orders.
April: But this is Mr. Windsor's third operation, everyone wants to know how it comes out.
Bailey: Well, until I get the okay from the Chief we're not even gonna tweet the time of day.
April: It's not like the Chief even reads tweets, it's not like he'll know.
Bailey: Drop it, Kepner.
Lexie: I understand, he's the boss. And I'm sure that he's got his reasons, but you've also got 3,000 residents out there who have been by your side this whole time, through a couple of difficult, time cosuming, life treatning, operations. And now, to tell them forget it, just like that? It's like... It's like turning off the TV when Clarisse is knocking on the door of the house. It's silencing the lambs, and the lambs want to scream, Dr. Bailey. The lambs want to scream.
Bailey: The man would never know.
April: No, no, the man would not.

Mark: Well, what did Arizona say?
Callie: She said she's in.
Mark: Well, that's good, right?
Callie: Eh, I'm still hedging my bets. I'm not gonna move back in with her until I know for sure she's not gonnna bail again.
Lexie: (walks up) Hey, you got dinner plans tonight?
Mark: No.
Lexie: I'm cooking for you tonight, your place. I rocked the lab coli. (kisses him and walks off)
Callie: So when you gonna tell her?
Mark: Not until after my home cooked meal.
Callie: Mark, you do not have to do this. I'm giving you a get out of jail free card, no hard feelings, you can be the cool uncle who hangs out on Sundays.
Mark: I'm not the cool uncle. I'm the dad.
Callie: You love Lexie. And the last time a Sloan kid appeared in Seattle she dumped you. Now, if you were the cool uncle...
Mark: I'm not the cool uncle! Don't ever say that again. This is my kid. I want this kid. (mutters) Cool uncle.
Callie: Well, so then tell her. Do not wait until this kid comes out looking all Sloan-y.

P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing) [7.14][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] One of the hardest lessons as a doctor is learning to prioritize. We're trained to do all we can to save life and limb, but, if cutting off a limb, means saving a life, we learn to do it without hesitation. It's not an easy lesson to learn, and it always comes down to one question, "what are the stakes?" What do we stand to gain or lose? At the end of the day, we're just gamblers trying not to bet the farm.

Callie: [while trying to set a hip dislocation] It is his body! Okay? You don't get to say what he can and can't do with it! He is a person! He gets to make his own damn choices! I AM GOING THROUGH THE WORST CAFFEINE WITHDRAWAL OF MY LIFE BECAUSE SOMEONE THINKS THAT BEING PREGNANT MEANS THAT I'M NO LONGER OF SOUND FRICKIN' MIND!
April: You're pregnant?!
Callie: Shut up! I'm not endangering my baby, I just-I just want one damn cup of coffee!
Owen: Oookaaay...Kepner, go get Dr. Torres a cup of coffee.
April: Okay.
Callie: [grunting]
Owen: [to April] RUN!
Callie:[to Owen, panting] Thank you.
Owen: Congratula-
Callie:[exasperated] Oh whatever just come around here and help me with his hip!

Callie: [to Arizona and Mark] Here's the thing. I get that everything is going to be different now, and uh, that's why I'm gonna eat that chicken...even though the only thing I want right now is a peanut butter sandwich.
Callie: Oh, I'm not done. If we're gonna do this whole everybody gets a vote thing, there's gonna be a new system. We'll still each get one vote, but also, the baby gets a vote. As I house the baby, I'll be speaking for him/her. And, since I'll be pushing this baby out of a very small hole in my body, I'll also get an extra special vagina vote! So, that's uh, three votes for us, two votes for you guys, oh! We get the final say! Now, I'll be using my many votes to say that once a day, I will have one cup of regular coffee every day which is perfectly fine according to the studies that I've read at least until I begin breastfeeding. Now, anybody wanna argue with my extra special vagina vote?
Mark: No thank you.
Arizona:[spoken in unison with Mark] No...
Callie: Great. [silence] Oh. We also vote that Mark gives me a foot rub.

Meredith: [voiceover] Surgery is a high stakes game. But no matter how high the stakes, sooner or later, you're just going to have to go with your gut, and, maybe just maybe, that'll take you right where you were meant to be in the first place.

Golden Hour [7.15][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] How much can you actually accomplish in an hour? Run an errand maybe, sit in traffic, get an oil change. When you think about it an hour isn't very long. Sixty minutes. Thirty-six hundred seconds. That's it. In medicine, though, an hour is often everything. We call it the golden hour. That magical window of time that can determine whether a patient lives or dies.

Meredith: [voiceover] An hour, one hour, can change everything forever. An hour can save your life. An hour can change your life. Sometimes an hour is a gift we give ourselves. For some, an hour can mean almost nothing. For others, an hour makes all the difference in the world. But in the end, it's still just an hour. One of many. Many more to come. Sixty minutes. Thirty-six hundred seconds. That's it. Then it starts all over again. And who knows what the next hour might hold.

Lexie: I can't believe he walked in with a knife in his head and is walking out an hour later to go to a ball game.
Jackson: Speaking of which. (holds out tickets) Any chance you wanna go to the game too? Apparentally Karev didn't want his floor seats. So are you interested?
Lexie: Actually, yes. Yes, I am.

Not Responsible [7.16][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] Everyone figures doctors are the most responsible people they know. They hold lives in their hands. They're not flakes. They don't lose track of important details or make stunningly bad judgment calls. 'Cause that would be bad, right?

Callie: The fate of my vagina is in her hands.

Lexie: It always feels like there is just one person in this world to love. And then you find somebody else, and it just seems crazy you ever worried in the first place.

Meredith: [voiceover] We are responsible with our patients. The problem is we blow it all out at work. In our own lives, we can't think things through. We don't make the sound choice. We did that all day at the hospital. When it comes to ourselves, we've got nothing left. And is it worth it—being responsible? Because if you take your vitamins and pay your taxes and never cut the line, the universe still gives you people to love and then lets them slip through your fingers like water, and then what have you got? Vitamins and nothing.

(Lexie is in the shower with Jackson, April comes in, not knowing Jackson's in there)

April: Okay, um... Stark... Stark just asked me out. Isn't that the weirdest thing you've ever heard?
Lexie: It's pretty weird, I'll give you that, yeah.
April: (hystrically) It's weird, it's weird. I mean, he's old and mean, he's like the Grinch. The Grinch asked me for diner and I said (giggles) yes.
Lexie: You said yes?!
April: I mean, there is a nice man under there.
Lexie: Ap-April...
April: You think it's weird.
Lexie: I- I do, but I'm starting to come around to it. You know, can we talk about it later?
April: Y-Yeah, okay. Can I pee before I go?
Lexie: April, go downstairs.
April: This is shared space.
Lexie: Just go downstairs! (April leaves, screen shows Lexie covering Jackson's mouth, who is obviously trying not to laugh)

Jackson: Just wanted to make sure that you were alright.
Lexie: Ricky's not, that's for sure. I told Julia that she'd find someone else, but I'm not sure I believed it.
Jackson: Ah, she will.
Lexie: But what if he's...
Jackson: ... her soulmate? You've gotta be kidding me with this crap, Lexie. Nobody has just one soul mate. That'd be such a dumb system. Look, Ricky and Julia deserve better than someone who makes them sick. You deserve better, too. And there is more than one soulmate for everyone. I mean, someone like you, there'd be a line out the door as soon as word got out.
Lexie: (smiles) Oh, would you be in the line?
Jackson: Yeah, I'm in the line.

Lexie: (about Julia) She's gone. For real. I don't know how to tell him.
Jackson: Well, if I had to hear something like that, I'd wanna hear it from you.

Teddy: They're lying. They're just gonna lay low for a couple of weeks, then they're gonna get back together and destroy this pefectly good pair of lungs. She's probably still in the hospital.
Jackson: You wanna stop the transplant?
Teddy: It's too late. Lungs are on their way, clock's already ticking.
Lexie: Maybe it'll be okay, you know, maybe it's not a waste, they love each other. You know, it is rare, what if they are soulmates? (Teddy shakes her head and leaves)
Jackson: You're thinking about Sloan again.
Lexie: No. Why? (Jackson gives her a look) He told Callie that he'd be happy to raise a special needs child, okay? He's a good man. I... I didn't think about it when I walked away, I just got mad and I walked.
Jackson: You did think about it. You think about everything.
Lexie: Okay, what if I was wrong?
Jackson: You really wanna be dating a guy, two women and a baby?
Lexie: Okay, well, that sounds bad.

Lexie: I had a feeling I'd find you here. The lungs are in, so far, so good.
Julia: Are you gonna tell her I'm here?
Lexie: Dr. Altman? No. No, I'm pretty sure that you're gonna leave. Here's the thing, you're killing him, you're taking a gun and killing him, and there's nothing romantic about a joint suicide. It's cruel, to you, to him, to your parents, and to the family that just buried someone. Those lungs are gorgeous. You can't do this. It always feels like there's just one person in this world to love, and then you find somebody else and it just seems crazy that you were over worried in the first place.
Julia: Just tell him he has to find someone, I- I just don't want him to be alone.

This Is How We Do It [7.17][edit]

Meredith: [opening voiceover] Renegades, rule-breakers, gangsters with scalpels, this is the way we like to think of ourselves. It makes us feel bad-ass, sexy. Problem is, it's not exactly true. At heart, we're rule-followers, sheep. We don't break protocol. We follow it to a tee. Because if you don't follow protocol, our patients die and we're no longer bad ass, we're just bad.

Arizona: (after Callie gets a text): We've been gone all of ten minutes what could Mark possibly want?
Callie: (laughs, and reads the message) Oooh. Oh, yeah, okay this is bad. He found out Lexie is with Avery and he's freaking. (Callie goes to type a reply, Arizona takes her phone and throws it in the backseat) Oh, what the hell?
Arizona: What? Th-This is time for us. It's just for us. And the first thing you wanna do is talk to Mark.
Callie: You just said it was okay. Okay, you know what? Oh, screw it. (takes off her seatbelt and climbs in back to get her phone)
Arizona: What are you doing?
Callie: I'm gonna talk to him.
Arizona: Don't you dare.
Callie: This is jealously, Arizona. You are jealous of Mark. Get over it.
Arizona: Do you blame me?I mean he gets most of you. The straight you, the Catholic you, the girl who loves baby showers. I just get, you know, the gay you, which is really only about twenty minutes a night... Not even. Since you just feel too fat to even let me touch you lately.
Callie: Look, I am doing my best here to make sure that you are happy, and that Mark is happy and that the tiny person growing inside me is happy. I don't know what else I can do to be honest. Please tell me. Cause I'll do it. Whatever will make you happy, I will do it.
Arizona: (pauses) Marry me.
Callie: (laughs) What?
Arizona: I mean, it. I love you more than anything but I want more. I want commitments, I want rings, so, marry me.

Lucy: So this is your new place?
Alex: You hungry? I got crab cakes, cucumber sandwiches, you ate all the pigs in the blanket so...
Lucy: I'll take a beer. (Alex hands her a beer) So this was your plan? Wait for me on the stoop of the trailer that you squat in?
Alex: What?
Lucy: You were waiting for me. 'Cause you find me charming, and hot.
Alex: (laughs) Wh-What? N-no.
Lucy: And now you're stuttering because I intimidate you.
Alex: Whatever.
Lucy: Which explains it, really; why you haven't made a move this entire time.
Alex: Oh, that's complete bull--
Lucy: And now... (moves to sit next to him) You're forcing me to do it. (kisses him) So was I right? (Alex kisses her back)

Eli: Well, I heard the good news. Our patient's doing well. Sorry, your patient.
Bailey: (sighs) Eli, I'm tired.
Eli: Good, now just admit that I was right so we can kiss and make up.
Bailey: Not that tired.
Eli: Miranda Bailey, we are not inside the hospital. Inside the hospital you're the man. That's the protocol, but outside I'm the man. I am the man. Me. Now you can call me cro magnon or old fashion, but that's not going to stop me from taking you home to my bed tonight and showing you what kind of man I am. Now how's that? Does that protocol suit you?
Bailey: Yeah.
Eli: Good. (kisses her) Be at my place in 15.

Henry: So, what I said before, about your eyes; it wasn't just the pain killers.
Teddy: Henry, you gotta stop. You gotta stop talking to me about my eyes and flirting with me in front of other doctors.
Henry: You're right, I'm sorry. ... Okay, I'm not sorry. I meant what I said, all of it. And more.
Teddy: I get it. It's a great story. We get married to save your life and we fall in love. I mean, how romantic is that? Not to mention that you are smart, and funny, and not at all hard on the eyes. And I'd be lying to say that it never crossed my mind. But I don't feel it. It's not real, it's just a good story.
Henry: What's so wrong with a good story?
Teddy: I'm sorry. (walks out)

Derek: You needed to score a 26 or below to meet the criteria for the trial, you were above that. (Adele looks thrilled)
Richard: (somber): What is it?
Derek: It's not important.
Richard: Derek.
Derek: It's 27.
Richard:One point? You're going to deny her this because of one point?
Derek: I'm so sorry.
Adele: Sorry? No, it's good. It means I passed. I'm not sick. I told you, Richard.
Richard: It's not what it means. You have Alzheimer's. It just hasn't progressed enough to get into the trial.
Adele: But Derek says I passed, I passed. Meredith I'm okay, right?
Meredith: When I asked you to repeat the three words back to me, you said 'pool' instead of 'spoon'. I asked you to identify my stehoscope, it took you a while to find the word. And I asked you where you took your honeymoon, and you said Hawaii. But, you were here because the Chief was a medicial student and he had to work.
Adele: You're just a resident. What do you know? What the hell do any of you know? You work in a hospital all day around sick people and disease. You're obsessed. That's what this is. So I got a few answers wrong? That's all? It's normal. To forget things at my age. (to Richard) You can never remember where you parked the car when we go to the movies! And they're not saying that you... It's not fair. I finally, we're finally happy. You and me. Loving each other the way we should have all these years. And now, it's not fair! (starts sobbing) Don't look at me like that. Like I'm damaged goods. I'm still me. I'm still here. I'm still me... maybe... maybe, I won't be here much longer, but I'm right here, I'm right here, baby. I'm so scared. Help me please. I'm so scared. You can't leave me.

Bailey: You need to pick chief resident already. I mean, Alex Karev is living in a trailer in the hospital parking lot. Residents are waiting for you outside bathrooms...
Richard:Karev's living in the parking lot?
Bailey: Y'know, your trial is up and running, and you've got things to deal with at home. You don't need to be picking a new chief resident, too. Let somebody else handle that. Delegate.
Richard: Okay, I'd like you to.
Bailey: No. I raised those babies. What I mean is, delegate to someone else... who is not me.

Stark: This was all when I was in surgery. I'm impressed.
April: Well, Dr. Karev did most of it, actually.
Stark: Oh, Dr. Karev. Okay, that's good to know. I'll make sure it was done right.
April: Robert, just say thank you.
Stark: Thank you, Dr. Karev. Now go away.
April: Oh my god, I am so sorry. I didn't mean to call you that.
Stark: There's no need to apologize, Dr. Kepner.
April: No, it was compeletly unprofessional. I promise I will never--
Stark: Hey, April... I'm saying I liked it.
April: I... I can't make it tonight.
Stark: To... What?
April: Uh... the new chief resident is getting picked soon and everyone is stepping up their game so I should probably just stay late here, and work. I'm sorry.
Stark: I understand. We got the age difference, we work together, not to mention you are very beautiful. But still, y'know, I'd hope you wouldn't feel the need to use work as an excuse to get out of spending time with me.
April: Oh, no, no. I wasn't. I enjoy spending time with you. So much. It's just... I guess I think of you as more of a friend. We're friends, y'know, we're friends.
Stark: Yeah. But that's the thing, y'know. I never wanted to be just your friend. G'night, Dr. Kepner.

Callie: So, there is one more gift left to open. (holds out an envelope to Arizona)
Arizona: Oh, I... I didn't get you anything.
Callie: You got me a shower. Open it. (Arizona does so) It's a B&B a few hours away. We leave in the morning.
Arizona: But, I have patients, you have patients.
Callie: I'm extending an olive branch here. Because I know how annoying I must be to you right now. But since I was four and I got that doll that crap its pants for Christmas, I wanted a kid because, other than cracking bones, this baby's my dream. And I get to be insanely out of my mind happy for my dream, but I'm not discounting your need to vomit over my insanity. (they laugh) So, just let me take you to a stupid B&B for the weekend to thank you. (they hug & kiss)

Mark: (holding up the oneise Mer decorated): What is that? A tumbleweed? A hurricane? (Arizona is looking through the trash) What's your problem?
Arizona: Ugh, someone threw out the gift list, and now we don't know who got what, and people are going to think of us as the type of people who write vague and impersonal thank you notes.
Mark: I'm not sure that's a type of people.
Callie: (walks in) What's going on?
Mark: Arizona lost the gift list.
Arizona: Yes, Mark. I lost the list. I-I suck at this. Congratulations, you're a better woman than I am.
Callie: Hey, it's okay, it's okay. It's not a big deal. Mark can you give us a minute?
Mark: (as he's walking out) She lost the gift list, not me.

Teddy: (during Henry's surgery) Do you need me to do anything?
Christina: I need you to shut up and stop acting like a scared wife.

Lucy: So this Karev guy. You're actually friends with him? That's real?
Meredith: Yeah. Why?
Lucy: It surprises me, that's all. I mean, you don't seem like the type of girl to put up with his whole neandrathal thing. So tell me, what am I missing?
Meredith: You're missing a lot. ... He had a girl go crazy on him. His wife almost died and then she walked out on him. And then he was shot and almost bled to death in an elevator. He's been through a lot. So, the Neanderthal thing is just... it is an act. A well executed one.

Lexie: (walking off with Jackson) Of course, I can help you with a consult.
April: You're not fooling anyone!

Lexie: (about Stark) I say he's totally gay.
Meredith: Well, if he were gay then why would he ask Kepner out.
Lexie: No straight guy waits a whole month before making a move.
Christina: Maybe he has herpes.
Alex: That wouldn't stop a guy either. I vote gay. I just wish he was into me that way I could be in all his cool surgeries, too.
April: He's not gay, he doesn't have herpes, and I'm not using him to get cool surgeries. We have a lot to talk about, okay? He's really interesting once you get to know him.
Alex: Yeah, which is why she's taking her pants off for him tonight.
Meredith, Cristina & Lexie: (all turn their heads toward her): What?
Alex: She's going to his place. From Here to Eternity is playing on cable.
Christina: Ooh, yeah. Pants are definitely coming off.
April: Nobody's pants are coming off.
Meredith: Movie at his place? That's the definition of pants coming off.
Christina: Virgin's a goner.
Lexie: And with an older man, too. That's very impressive.
April: (loudly) I am not taking my pants off for Stark! (everyone looks at her)

Christina: (about Mer's onesie she decorated) Oh my, God. That is so ugly.
Lexie: Are you still blind?
Meredith: I like it. It's abstract.

Lucy: I know they're not paying you well, but this seems a little extreme.
Alex: I just moved into my own place. I don't have time to shop. Pass me those cookies. (puts the cookies into his pocket) All these people here and you came and talked to me. You like me.
Lucy: No, I'm talking to you because I want something to eat and you're in the way.
Alex: Admit it, you find me charming.
Lucy: Are those pigs in the blanket?
Alex: And hot. Dirty hot.
Lucy: It was nice talking to you, Dr. Karev.

Mark: Don't feel bad. I've known Torres along time. She's a traditional girl, catholic. You know, this whole baby out of wedlock thing with three parents is a lot for her to swallow, that's why, y'know, I figured the bigger shower, the better.
Arizona: (sighs & rolls her eyes) Oh, shut up.
Mark: Excuse me.
Arizona: You're not the Callie whisperer. And I'm not a monster for finding baby showers annoying. Everyone woman who's ever had a pregnant friend hates them. It's like a wedding; the bridesmaids always want to strangle the bride. It's practically a rule. The only one who's not normal here is you for acting like you're enjoying this.

Richard: Dr. Altman, are you okay to stay on the case? Considering your personal relationship?
Teddy: Richard, we've been over this. It's a business relationship. Nothing more.(walks into the CT room to talk to Henry) How are you feeling?
Henry: Great, great. Great, great.
Teddy: Pain-killers finally kicked in, huh? Well, enjoy the ride.
Henry: I've been thinking lately, and I think... I think I've figured it out; why all of your dates go so bad. So, so bad. Laughably bad. It's not your fault, it's mine because I'm not the guy on them with you.
Teddy: We're ready to start.
Henry: Wait, wait. You're my wife. You're my hot wife.
Teddy: Henry...
Henry: I'm your husband, let's do it. Let's be together. I mean, look at you. Look at your eyes. I mean, you're not looking into your eyes, I could look into your eyes my whole life. (Teddy looks at Cristina and Richard who are listening and Cristina puts her hands over her face, and Richard glares)

Alex: [to April, after Stark invited her over for a movie] The only way you'll be watching that movie is if it's playing on his bedroom ceiling.

Christina: (as her and Mer are carrying a table) Where do you want this?
Arizona: What's that for?
Mark: Scrapbook station. Put it next to that box with the glitter pens.
Arizona: Oh, no, no. Don't put it anywhere. We're not having a scrapbook station.
Mark: You heard Callie this morning. She wants us to go all out. Move the table.
Arizona: No, don't move the table. Mark, this isn't a scrap book station kinda shower.
Mark: You're wrong. Yang, tell her Torres wants all the girly stuff. Games, oneise decorating.
Christina: I have a patient.
Mark: Grey.
Meredith: I can't get over the fact that you know what oneise decorating is.
Mark: I've been boning up. That's what you do for the people you love.
Arizona: Oh, bite me, Mark.
Callie: (walks in) What's going on? Are you guys fighting again?
Arizona: Did you want a scrapbook station?
Callie: Oh, yeah, of course. (Mark smiles) It's not a real shower unless you get to take home a scrapbook. Ooh, we should have glitter pens! (Mark smiles at Arizona and Arizona glares at him)

Alex: You're gonna screw your way to the top, I'm impressed.
April: I am not screwing Stark.
Alex: (mocking her) 'I am not screwing Stark.'
April: We're not even dating.
Alex: (mocking her) 'We're not even dating.'
April: I'm serious, we're not. Maybe, I thought we were at first but it's not like that now. We're just... hanging out. We're friends.
Alex: Yeah, naked friends.

Alex: You need any help today? Robbins has her baby shower so I'm free.
Stark: I still don't like you, Karev.
Alex: Dude.
Stark: Good-bye.

Christina: So, you've been all buddy-buddy with Webber lately.
Owen: I'm staying out of it. But you are very beautiful.
Christina: Oh, screw beautiful. I'm brilliant. If you wanna appease me, compliment my brain.

Bailey: What's that all about?
Teddy: Chief's in the bathroom.
Bailey: With an audience?
Owen: His trial funding came through this morning and they all want in on it.
Teddy: Door's opening! (they all rush to the door and start talking to Richard at once)
Richard: Quiet! I haven't made my decision yet. Get away. (walks off)
Bailey: Stalking a man while he's in the restroom.
Jackson: I'd clean the restroom if he'd let me on this trial.
Christina: I'd live in it.
Bailey: You are surgeons. If you wanna impress the Chief, impress him surgically.

Lucy: Your BP is borderline high. Are you feeling okay?
Callie: Oh, yeah. That's the nerves about the baby shower. It's like Christmas morning.
Arizona: You are way too excited about this.
Callie: Hey, I have bought expensive gifts and played stupid games for every knocked up nurse in this place. Now it's my turn. (to Lucy) You're coming, right? (Lucy looks surprised) Arizona, you invite the OB. The fate of my vagina's in her hands.
Arizona: Oh, right. 1pm. Fourth floor doctor's lounge.
Lucy: Alright, I'll see if I can make it. (Callie glares) I'll make it.

Mark: How's it size?
Arizona: Oh, Mark.
Lucy: It's okay. I'm used to that trick. It's size is within the norm.
Mark: C'mon. We're here. You know you wanna know.
Arizona: No, no, no. You wanna know. We prefer an element of surprise.
Mark: Callie...
Callie: Mark, we voted. Two to one.

Adele: When are you two finally gonna get married?
Richard: Um, Meredith and Derek already got married, honey. Remember?
Adele: I know that. They wrote on a post-it. I meant a real wedding, in a church and a white dress.

Bailey: Why's there a trailer in my parking spot?
Alex: Is one of these yours? My bad.
Bailey: You're living here? In a trailer? In the parking lot?
Alex: Well, I'm in the race for chief resident. I get the surgeries first, I'm here when the chief arrives.
Bailey: Just get the thing outta my spot. Here. (throws her keys at him) And move my car.

Meredith: [closing voiceover] It's every doctor's dilemma. Do you play it safe and follow protocol? Or take a risk and invent a new one? There can be reward in risk. There can also be fallout. Still you need to book the system every once in a while. Bet big. And when you get the results you want, there's no better feeling in the world, but when you don't.

Song Beneath The Song [7.18][edit]

Callie: [voiceover] The brain is the human body's most mysterious organ. It learns. It changes. It adapts. It tells us what we see. What we hear. It lets us feel love. I think it holds our soul. But no matter how much research we do, no one can really say how all that delicate gray matter inside our skull works. And when it's hurt, when the human brain is traumatized, well... that's when it gets even more mysterious.

Meredith: Yesterday at that baby shower, I was jealous of Callie because she got pregnant without trying. And we tried. I get shots, I take my temperature, I put my legs in the air, and nothing. The universe says screw you Meredith and gives Callie a kid and then puts Callie through a windshield. I mean what the hell is going on? What's the point?

Arizona: "[to Callie]" She's really small, but she's strong. One pound, one ounce of... strong. Fighting against all the... complications. She's got beautiful black hair, Calliope, she's... beautiful. ... But she can't open her eyes yet, but I can tell that she's looking for you.

Mark: You're not nothin'. (Arizona looks at him with a shocked expression) We have a kid together. You're a mom. I'm a dad. I'm sorry.
Arizona: She's gonna wake up. She has to wake up.

Derek: We've done everything that we can, now we just have to wait for her to wake up.
Mark: And the fact that she barely responded when you weened her off the paralytics before...?
Derek: It could mean she wasn't ready to wake up.
Arizona: Or?
Derek: It could mean her brain has been compromised and... she's not going to wake up.

Arizona: We should say a prayer. She'd want us to pray.
Mark: I haven't stopped praying since yesterday.

Addison: You should go in there and make peace. You both love Callie.
Mark: I have nothing left to say.

Teddy: I can't teach you anymore.
Christina: W-What?
Teddy: If you refuse to learn, if you won't listen... I can't teach you.
Christina: I-I'm sorry--
Teddy: Find someone else to learn from.

Lexie: You sleeping at home tonight?
Jackson: Look, I am not the kinda guy who waits around for the girl who is still in love with someone else. I'm just not.
Lexie: Jackson... let's go home.

Meredith: Yesterday, at the baby shower... I was jealous of Callie because she got pregnant... without trying. And we try. I get shots, I take my temperature, I put my legs in the air, and nothing. (starts crying) The universe says screw you, Meredith, and gives Callie a kid... and then puts Callie through a windshield. I mean, what the hell is going on? What's the point? I mean, is there a reason for this? Because if you can think of a reason, any reason at all why the universe is so screwed up... and random and mean, now would be an amazingly good time to tell me, because I really need some answers.
Derek: (hugs her) I know, I know. ... I will make sure that we have a baby. I promise you. One way or another, you and I will have be parents. I promise you.

Arizona: (to Callie) Mark's kinda right, y'know. I'm nothing. Well, legally... I'm no one. Which is kinda crazy, because I feel like your wife. I feel like our baby's mom. (starts crying) Can you just... C-Can you live for me? Please? Live for me.

Callie dreaming; her and Arizona are in the truck in the clouds)

Callie: (looking at her phone) Oh, this is bad. Mark just found out Lexie's with Jackson. He's freaking.
Arizona: I thought we were getting away from Mark for the weekend.
Callie(throws her phone in the backseat) There. He's gone. (Callie's phone beeps)
Arizona: Y'know, just get it 'cause he's not gonna stop.
Callie: (unbuckles her seatbelt and goes to grab the phone, but stops and looks at Arizona) You're gonna ask me to marry you.
Arizona: What? No, I'm not.
Callie: In a few seconds you're gonna ask me to marry you and then we're going to run into a truck.
Arizona: Well, then you better put on your seatbelt.
Callie: I didn't answer you because I- I don't know.
Arizona: Put on your seatbelt.
Callie: I mean, is this what love is supposed to feel like? Is this what love feels like for other people?
Arizona: You know, I don't really care about other people right now.
Callie: I mean, other people can do it. Meredith and Derek, Cristina and Owen, Bailey's got Eli, Karev's with Lucy... Even Teddy's got that tumor patient husband.
Arizona: Put your seatbelt on.
Callie: I want that. I want us to be like that, 'cause I love you. (smiles & laughs) I do!

Arizona: So, you'd think she'd have a better chance if we took the baby out now, electively?
Bailey: Well, Callie's cardiovascular status could possibly be greatly improved, but we just need to know...
Mark: ... What we wanna do.
Arizona: No, what Callie would want us to do. The baby's barely viable.
Mark: Why are we even talking about the baby?
Arizona: Did you just say that?
Mark: No, I'm just saying we should give Callie the best shot she can get.
Bailey: But Mar--
Arizona: Callie wants a a baby!
Bailey: Ariz--
Mark: Callie wants to live.
Arizona: (scoffs) Well, we all want her to live. But what's her life gonna be like if she wakes up and her child is gone?
Mark: What's her life gonna be like if she's dead?
Arizona: Oh, God, it is not that simple.
Mark: It is. I don't like it, it's horrible, but it is that simple. We can have another baby. We can't have another Callie.
Arizona: What, so you can have sex with my girlfriend again?
Mark: Oh, for God sakes, get over it. We screwed! Big deal.
Arizona: It is, Mark. It is a big deal!
Mark: If something happens to my child, we'll just screw again.
Arizona: No, you won't!
Mark: Yes, we will!
Arizona: You are out of your mind. Just because you're too big of a manwhore to make any relationship work...

Arizona: A baby born at 23 weeks risks ensepothopy, ROP, cerebral palsy, developmental and...
Mark: I know the risks!
Arizona: No, do you? Because you're acting like you don't care about the baby.
Mark: I'm thinking about Callie. You don't think I care?! This is my baby!
Arizona: You're not being rational.
Mark: Oh, you never wanted this. You never asked for it. Then why the hell are you giving us some opinion on what--
Arizona: (cutting him off) No, no, no! You know what I didn't ask for? I didn't ask for you, Mark. Because you know what you are? You're basically a sperm donor. I mean, this is me and this is Callie, and we're together, so I say...
Mark: No! You don't get a say. This is my family. I'm the father. I'm the father! You're not anything. You're nothing.

Christina: Yesterday we were at her stupid baby shower.
Meredith: I take it back. You can be Callie's baby's godmother.
Alex: If there's a baby to godmother. The only way to save the baby is to save Callie, and the only way to save Callie might end up killing the baby.
Meredith: You've got a hickey on your neck.
Christina: What? (looks at his neck) Oh, oh. Karev's turning all red. Are you in love? Do you love her? You love her?
Alex:(laughs) Shut up.
Meredith: Lucy is the first girl he's really liked since...
Alex: It's not a big deal. She works here at Seattle Grace Mercy Death, so I'm sure she's pretty much going to go crazy or get cancer, shot by a gunman, or get hit by a truck, so don't get your hopes up Karev's big happily ever after.
Christina: Seattle Grace Mercy Death.
Meredith: He's got a point.

Meredith: Derek.
Derek: She suffered massive head trauma. I fixed all the bleeders I saw but... (sighs)
Meredith: She might have permanent neurological damage.
Derek: She may not come back. Even if they manage to save her body, her brain may not come back. Mark was standing there.
Meredith: You have to tell him.
Derek: I can't do that. I'm not gonna... I can't.

Lexie: You have a plan?
Jackson: Torres goes back to the OR tomorrow, now the big question is whether or not to deliever the baby first. They're waiting for Robbins and Sloan to decide.
Lexie: How is... H-How are they doing?
Jackson: You mean Sloan? (Lexie nods) I think he's okay. You wanna go home tonight or sleep here?
Lexie: I-I don't know. I-I might need to...
Jackson: I get it. It's Mark's kid.

Derek: It's too soon to tell anything.
Arizona: She didn't respond?
Derek: She opened her eyes and... It's just too soon to tell.
Mark: Derek, she follow commands? Anything else? (Derek is silent)
Meredith: No, nothing else.

Addison: (to Callie) Oh, sweetie, I am so sorry. But we got this; the attendings. We are all gonna meet and we are gonna make a plan. I promise you. We are gonna make a plan and we're gonna figure out what to do. It's gonna be alright. You're gonna be okay.

Lucy: Dr. Montgomery, there's a chance that the baby can still survive if we deliever by C-section while Callie is stable.
Addison: No, there is not. Because not only did you fail to stop her contractions, you didn't give steroids to the baby to help mature her lungs, so you can go, too. (Lucy is silent) Go!

Lucy: This is humilating. He's benching me. I've been benched.
Alex: She's the best there is. He wants the best for Torres.
Lucy: Yeah, well it makes me look like a complete moron in front of my colleagues.
Alex: They're not thinking about you. They're thinking about Torres. I'm sorry, but suck it up.

Mark: (sobbing) You don't have to do this. I know you hate me.
Lexie: I don't hate you. (sits down next to him)
Mark: She's my best friend. She's my best friend. (Lexie takes his hand)

Alex: What do you need? I can stitch up that nasty cut you've got going there.
Arizona: I'm okay. (starts sobbing again) I'm fine.

Richard: Dr. Fields, what is your plan here?
Lucy: My plan?
Richard: Yes, what is your plan if Torres starts contracting again? What if she has pre-term labor? What if god forbid, you have to deliver this baby?
Lucy: I may be a little out of my depth here, sir.

Mark: What the hell happened?
Arizona: I asked her to marry me a truck came out of nowhere.

Callie: [opening voiceover] The brain is the human body's most mysterious organ. It learns. It changes. It adapts. It tells us what we see, what we hear. It lets us feel love. I think it holds our soul. And no matter how much research we do, no one can really say how all that delicate grey matter inside our skull works. And, when it's hurt, when the human brain is traumatized, well, that's when it gets even more mysterious.

Mark: What the hell happened?
Owen: Car versus truck. That's all we know.
Mark: Injuries? The baby?
Derek: We don't know yet.
Mark: Well, why the hell don't you know? Someone get me a trauma gown.
Richard: Mark, you need to sit this one out.
Mark: I'm not sitting this one out, that's Callie, that's my kid.
Richard: Which is why you can't. I'm sorry you can't be a doctor on this one.
Mark: Screw you.
Owen: Sloan.
Mark: Screw all of you.
Richard: Look at me, Sloan. Look at me. Maybe I don't understand what you two have, how you have it, but I understand this, she is your family. Callie Torres and that baby are your family. And the best way that you can help your family is to step back and let the rest of us do what you can't rationally do; save their lives. Okay?
Derek: Mark.
Mark: I'm in the room, you hear me? I'm in the room!
Richard: Okay.

Callie: (waking up, muttering) Y-yes. (Arizona wakes up) Yes.
Arizona: Oh, oh my, God. Callie? Callie?
Callie: Yes.
Arizona: What? What?
Callie: I'll marry you. (Arizona smiles with joy)

White Wedding [7.20][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] Germs, disease, toxins, our bodies encounter dangers all the time, just beneath the surface, hidden. Whether you realize it or not, your body is constantly protecting itself. Every time you blink your eye, you wash away thousands of unwanted microbes. Too much pollen and you sneeze. The body knows when it's encountered something that doesn't belong. The body detects the invader, it releases its white blood cells, and it attacks.

Callie: I know why they sent you in here it doesn't matter what you say the wedding's still off. My mom's right. It's a joke. It's not a wedding. And it's not happening. [Bailey sighs] I can't have a priest, I no longer have a minister, I'm not being given away by my dad, the wedding isn't legal, what's the point? This isn't a wedding! It's not even in a church! It's nothing it's just-it's just a couple of girls playing dress up. It's not real.


Bailey:If you are willing to stand up in front of your friends, and family, and God, and commit yourself to another human being, to, to give of yourself in that kind of a partnership, for better or worse, in sickness and health, honey, that is a marriage. That is real. And that's all that matters. Besides, girl, I got legally married. To a man! In a church! Look how well that turned out. [laughs hysterically]

Mark: Robbins? Babysitter's here. Sofia's asleep. I look great by the way. Let's go! [Arizona comes out of the bathroom, hair still wet] okay?
Arizona: [shakes head sadly] When I came out to my brother, he asked me if that meant that I was going to marry a chick. And when I said yes, he got this big smile, and he said "I'm gonna dance so hard at your wedding." [Laughs sadly] My dreams are coming true. Dreams I didn't even know that I had. But my brother's not here. He's missing it. And I know that I'm late, I know that, I know that, but why do you think that my dad scheduled every minute of every day? I mean, every minute is accounted for and there's no time to slow down and just..[crying] I just...I need a minute to miss my brother.

Meredith: [voiceover] Just when we think we've figured things out, the universe throws us a curve ball. So we have to improvise, we find happiness in unexpected places, we find our way back to the things that matter the most. The universe is funny that way, sometimes it just has a way of making sure we wind up exactly where we belong.

Owen: So, what happened with Teddy? Did you talk to her?
Alex: (walks up): So, my date just called to say she got stuck delivering a baby. Literally, the baby got stuck half way out.
Jackson: I was wrong to doubt the mice. Karev, watch your back. Mouse J just made me a contender. Thank you, Mouse J.
Lexie: To Mouse J. (they toast)
Owen: You're not the only contenders, you know, my sources tell me that Kepner could be a dark horse.
Christina: Oh, please. (walks off)
Alex: (taking Owen's drink away from him) No offense, Dr. Hunt. I have you scheduled for a Swenson procedure on a two-year old orphan tomorrow morning. I'm sure you understand, I'm just looking out for the kids, that I brought here, from Africa.

Carlos: [to Callie] I was driving to the airport with your mother and it hit me. I've been looking forward to dancing with you on your wedding day since I first held you in my arms, so I turned the car around and came back. So, here I am, to have this dance, with my daughter.

Arizona: (about the father daughter dance) Oh, crap. I forgot to take that off the schedule. I meant to, I'm sorry...
Callie: No, no, no. It's okay. Of course you should get to dance with your dad, it's okay. I'll just sit this one out. Go ahead. (Arizona goes to dance with her dad, Mark walks up)
Mark: No, you won't. I'm a father. I can dance. Let's dance.

Christina: You want a real apology?
Teddy: Can't this wait until work tomorrow? My date's waiting for me.
Christina: You know, I'm sorry that I'm such an exceptional surgeon that it threatens you. I'm sorry my surgical repair saved Callie's life and yours didn't. I'm sorry your ego is so fragile that I had to stand on the sidelines of a surgery I should have been performing with you today. Like, I have been standing on the sidelines for the past three months basically ruining my chances for chief resident. You wanted sincerity? I could have not been more sincere.
Teddy: And yet, you still don't get it.

Richard: Any idea when they're cutting the cake? I wanna take a piece home to Adele.
Christina: Oh, I have no idea, sir.
Richard: You know, it's funny how things work out. Karev stepped up, Jackson's starting to shine, there's Kepner, Grey. Well, I always assumed that you'd be the front runner for chief resident, Yang. But that just goes to show, you can't count anyone out. I'm going to check on that cake.

Bailey: Who gives this bride to this bride?
Mark: That'd be me.

(The scene cuts back and forth between Derek and Mer getting married to Callie and Arizona getting married)

Judge: Applicants Grey and Shepherd...
Derek: That'd be us.
Judge: I need to see some ID. Okay, this seems to be in order, I'll jump right in. We are here today to participate in a marital union...
Bailey: ...To celebrate love and happiness and loyalty, and in my opinion, a little bit of magic.
Judge: In the form and regulations of the state of Washington,
Bailey: To bring together two exceptional and beautiful human beings...
Judge: Since it is your intention to enter into marriage, join hands, and repeat after me. I, Derek Shepherd...
Derek: I, Derek Shepherd...
Arizona: I take you, Calliope Torres to be my wife.
Meredith: For better or for worse in good times and in bad...
Callie: I choose you to be the one whom I spend my life...
Arizona: I love you.
Callie: I love you.
Judge: Okay, you sign there, and you sign there. (they both sign) By these documents and according to the state law of Washington...
Bailey: Okay, I hereby pronounce you wife and wife. (Callie and Arizona kiss)
Judge: Congratulations.
Derek: Why, thank you.

Mark: (knocks on door) Robbins, babysitter's here. Sofia's asleep. I look great, by the way. Let's go. (walks in the bedroom, and Arizona is crying) Robbins, you okay?
Arizona: When I came out to my brother, he asked me if that meant that I was gonna marry a chick. And when I said 'yes' he had this big smile and he said 'I'm gonna dance so hard at your wedding'. (starts crying again) My dreams are coming true, dreams I didn't even know that I had. But my brother's not here, he's missing it. And I know that I'm late, I know it, I know it, I know it, but why do you think that my dad schedules every minute of every day? If every minute is accounted for then there's no time to slow down and just... I just need a minute to miss my brother. (Mark hugs her)

Bailey: You realize your door is unlocked? I could be anyone. I could be a burglar coming to burglar you. Where's the baby? (Callie shows her the baby on the monitor, she smiles) Oh, I could be a baby-napper trying to baby-nap you.
Callie: I know why they sent you. It doesn't matter what you say, the wedding's still off. My mom's right, it's a joke. It's not a wedding, and it's not happening. I can't have a priest, I no longer have a minister, (sobs) I'm not being given away by my dad, the wedding isn't legal, what's the point? This isn't a wedding, it's not even in a church, it's nothing. It's a couple of girls playing dress up. It's not real, it's not real.
Bailey: (sighs) Okay, first of all, you do not need the law or a priest or your mother to make your wedding real. And the church can be anywhere you want it to be. In a field, on a mountain, right here in this room, anywhere because where do you think god is? Come on, He's in you. He's in me. Just right here, in the middle of us. Your church just hasn't caught up to God yet. Your mother, she hasn't caught up to God yet. And, by the way, she may not ever catch up, but it's okay. It's okay. If you are willing to stand up in front of your friends, family, and God, and commit yourself to another human being to give yourself in that kind of partnership for better or worse in sickness and in health. Honey, that is a marriage. That is real, and that's all that matters. Besides, I got legally married in a church. Look how well that turned out. (laughs)

Derek: Let's adopt this baby.
Meredith: What? Are you serious?
Derek: Yeah. You know, I was holding her yesterday, and she was crying and then she stopped. And I've held a lot of babies; I've fixed a lot of babies. But, I looked down at Zola, and I don't know what it was, but I just couldn't imagine her being with any other parent or any other family. We've been trying so hard to start a family, and she needs one. Let's adopt her. I'm serious, let's adopt her.

Callie: Oh, good. Can I borrow something? It can be anything really. A handerchief, tissue, cash. I got something old, new, blue, I just need something borrowed.
Mark: I just got a call from Father Brooks. His wife got into an accident. She's okay, but they're in the ER now, he's not gonna make it to the wedding.
Callie: You're kidding. Please tell me that you're kidding. Do you know how hard it was to find a minister that was willing to marry us?
Mark: Well, he left us some numbers, we can call for a replacement.
Callie: (sighs) Ah, you know what, no. Don't make any calls. Don't get anyone. Just... Forget it. I'm not getting married.

Meredith: So, you're not talking to me now, is that it?
Alex: You told me to shut up, so I'm just gonna sit here an read this cereal box and practice keepin' my mouth shut.
Meredith: I didn't change any data or falsify any results.
Alex: Or switch the syringe so some sweet, sad, old lady would get the drug and not the placebo. (Mer is silent) That's what I thought.
Meredith: Nothing I did will change any results. It doesn't change the potential effectivness of the drug, it doesn't change anything.
Alex: Except the life of the guy who was supposed to get the drug and now won't. Look, the truth will come out and when the FDA investigates they'll invalidate Seattle Grace as a research institution. That blacklists, you, Derek and every freakin' doctor in the hospital. This is bigger than you. It messes with me, it messes with everyone. I mean, I know I'm a lot of things, but I'm not a liar, and I never thought you were either.
Meredith: So what are you saying? That you're gonna tell?
Derek: (walks in) Morning.
Alex: I'm gonna be late for work.

Teddy: I am impressed. You are remarkably calm for a bride who's getting married tomorrow.
Arizona: Ah, you should see the schedule my dad put together. I just show up where I belong, when I belong, it's perfect. Everyone should get married like this. (Teddy gets a text, reads it and giggles) Who's that from? Hottie husband or hottie boyfriend? 

Teddy: It's from Andrew. He's not my boyfriend; he's just my wedding date.
Arizona: Uh huh. And does your hottie wedding date know about your hottie husband?
Teddy: Well, there's nothing to know. Andrew will be in town for another week and then he's off to who knows where, so I'm just enjoying what he has to offer, when he has to offer.

Arizona: Two more days. We can handle two more days.
Callie: And then they'll be gone and our lives will go back to normal. No more brunches, no more praying...
Arizona: No more my dad calling himself The Colonel. (they laugh)Arizona: We just need to focus on the big picture, which is... you and I are getting married.
Callie: We're getting married.
Arizona: We're getting married.

April: Dr. Stark, can I talk to you for a second?
Stark: It appears that you already are.

Alex: Mer, what's goin' on? Does he know what you did?
Meredith: What did I do?
Alex: I saw you with the clinical trial envelope, you were hiding it under your lab coat. Look, if you messed with this trial some how, this could be bad for you. Like really bad.
Meredith: I don't know what you're talking about.
Alex: Whatever you did, no matter how minor, it invalidates the entire project.
Meredith: Alex!
Alex: You could get into real trouble here, Mer. It's illegal to mess around with a blind trial.
Meredith: I didn't do anything! So shut up about it!

Teddy: Okay, okay. I need twenty good reasons why I shouldn't let Cristina back on my service today because I am ready to buckle. I've got a really complicated case and I could use her skills today. Okay, so twenty reasons, right now, please.
Owen: I don't have one reason. I think you should put her back on your service.
Teddy: No, no. That would be the worst thing that I could do. I mean, that won't teach her a thing.
Owen: She went over your head in the surgery, yes. That was bad form, but don't you think you're being a little bit harsh?
Teddy: Harsh? Okay, first of all, she went over my head to you and you enabled that behavior which you really shouldn't have done but more importantly Cristina is dangerous right now. She got lucky. Callie survived that procedure but it just as easily could've been disastrous. Cristina got lucky. She doesn't see it that way, she thinks she's right. She always thinks she's right and that is not being a good doctor. That is dangerous.
Owen: I know that. Instead of shutting her out, tell Cristina that.
Teddy: There's no telling Cristina Yang anything. She has to learn it. And until then, I'm okay being the bad guy. I can handle her being angry at me. Do you really think she could handle something like killing Callie Torres?

Jackson: I mean, you'd think being on the Chief's research project would help in the race for chief resident. Might even think it would make me a contender. Only, I'm not saving little kids or people with Alzheimer's, I'm cleaning up mouse poop.
Lexie: (distracted, practicing a procedure on a plum) Can you hand me that basin?
Jackson: Wanna hear my conversation with the Chief every morning? (imitates Richard) 'Avery, how are the mice?' ... 'Oh, they're fine, Chief. They're running on their wheels, they're eating their cheese.' I mean, if I worked at a pet store, I'd be employee of the month by now. But I'm a surgeon, baby-sitting a bunch of mice.
Lexie: Until you get FDA approval, okay? Which I'm sure you're gonna be working on humans any day now. Now grab me another plum.
Jackson: Why are you peeling these things apart anyway?
Lexie: I'm practicing. Since my kid's skin has grown directly on to the heart muscle, I'm gonna be helping Teddy remove the adhesion without puncturing the heart. (Jackson takes a bite of the plum) Hey, don't eat my adhesion!

Mark: (walks in) Sorry, sorry, surgery ran long. But, I'm here. I made it. Where do you want me? (stands next to Mrs. Robbins)
Daniel: That is not where you'll be.
Mark: Oh, this is your spot? ... Sorry. (slides over, Daniel glares at him)
Carlos: Hey, Mark, why don't you stand over here next to me?
Mark At least one of my fathers-in-law doesn't hate me.
Carlos: You're Sofia's father. I love Sofia so I'm gonna at least going to try to like you. But, if you call me your father-in-law again, I'll knock 'ya out.

Callie: So, the table is the altar and the lamp is...
Arizona: Father Brooks.
Lucia: Your priest?
Callie: Minister. No, he's not Catholic, but he practices at a very big church. It's old and drafty, you'll like it. It's very churchy.
Lucia: I see.

Christina: Dr. Altman, I would like to apologize. I am sorry... for going over your head and putting you in a difficult position during Callie's surgery. I am sorry. I apologize.
Teddy: Are you saying this because you mean it or you because you want back on my service?
Christina: Does it really matter?
Teddy: Yes, it matters.

Christina: Okay, listen, I need to get back in the race for chief resident. I need in on Teddy's patenllagtrel patient. This isn't funny anymore. She is still shutting me out, can't you talk to her?
Owen: Wait, I thought you were on Robbins' service today, isn't she on that case, too?
Christina: Yeah, but that just puts me like inches away from some other resident doing the most amazing cardio procedure imaginable while I just stand there and... suction. It's torture.
Owen: You need to apologize.
Christina: Apologize for what? Having better judgement than Teddy? For saving Callie's life? There's a wedding tomorrow because of me.
Patient: Your apology could use some work.

Christina: Adorable African children and shameless ego stroking. Karev is a genius.
Jackson: Yeah, he's single handedly stealing chief resident out from under all of us and we're helping him do it. I mean, we can't exactly refuse to treat sick kids without making ourselves look bad.
April: Yeah, he's a genius. Or yeye alikuwa ni genius, that's what they say in Swaahili.
Christina: Well, he only has a shot because I've been benched. The playing field has been leveled. You're all welcome.
Meredith: My Alzheimer's trial kicks African orphan ass. It kicks all your asses.
Owen: You asked me how to get back in with Teddy, I told you how.

Mark: I'd like to propose a toast.
Colonel Robbins: Why is the sperm donor here? I thought tonight was a family dinner.
Arizona: Dad...
Mark: To two extraordinary women, may your lives be overfilled with love, happiness and joy. To Callie, and Arizona the mothers of my child.
Colonel Robbins: Oh, for God sakes.

Meredith: [closing voiceover] Just when we think we figured things out, the universe throws us a curveball. So, we have to improvise. We find happiness in unexpected places. We find ourselves back to the things that matter the most. The universe is funny that way. Sometimes it just has a way of making sure we wind up exactly where we belong.

I Will Survive [7.21][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] "Adapt or die." As many times as we've heard it, the lesson doesn't get easier. Problem is, we're human. We want more than just to survive. We want love. We want success. So we fight like hell to get those things. Anything else feels like death.

Unaccompanied Minor [7.22][edit]

Meredith: [voiceover] I always said I'd be happier alone. I'd have my work, my friends - but someone in your life all the time? More trouble than it's worth. Apparently, I got over it.

Meredith: [voiceover] There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone. Because what if you learn that you need love and then you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
