Grey's Anatomy Episode Recap: "No Good at Saying Sorry"

at . Comments

"No Good at Saying Sorry" was a powerful episode of Grey's Anatomy that left us feeling sad and a bit overwhelmed, yet touched with hope. The whole cast - Sandra Oh and James Pickens, Jr. in particular - were terrific and reminded us just what makes the show so good.

Owen can't bring himself to tell Cristina the three words he really feels, so his coping mechanism was to sub in meaningless pleasantries. That went over about as well as Richard's attempt to let himself off the hook when it comes to Meredith and the impact he had on her.

Elsewhere, Izzie's mom came to town at Bailey's behest, but Izzie really needed to protect herself from her. Inspired by a patient, Callie refused to lie to her family about her lesbianism.

And is Mark Sloan becoming a respectable human being before our eyes?

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)

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
