The Whole Truth About Tonight's Episode

by at . Comments

The underlying theme of tonight's repeat, "Tell Me Sweet Little Lies" is... you guessed it. Surgery. Oh, and the truth. It's certainly in short supply with Meredith and Cristina, who lie to each other (and themselves) at length about their respective relationships.

A Concerned Dr. Webber

A frazzled George, meanwhile, is given the task of discharging an elderly patient who refuses to leave SGH even though she's no longer sick... and who has taken quite a liking to him.

George also pleads with Meredith to abandon the dog... and to pay attention to him instead.

After re-taking his medical boards, Alex finally learns his fate, and tries to patch things up with Izzie. Miranda finally succumbs, 47 weeks later, to the demands of pregnancy and Richard (right) struggles to head off a possible strike by the hospital's nurses.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
