Grey's Anatomy Recap: "Tainted Obligation"

at . Comments

As the residents of Seattle Grace continue to freak over looming budget cuts, bigger problems made sure those were the last things on their mind - at least for this week.

Meredith's father Thatcher has played an enormous role on Grey's Anatomy, even if he seldom appears on it. Mer's daddy issues are dark, twisty and well-documented.

So when he showed up last night needing a liver transplant to survive - and unable to get a donor liver because he hasn't been sober for a year (just 90 days), you can imagine the tension in the room. It got worse when it turned out Lexie wasn't a match. Meredith was.

What decision did she make? Did he end up surviving? And what other resident let her emotions get the best of her yet again, leaving her future a bit up in the air?

Follow the link for a recap of last night's Grey's Anatomy, "Tainted Obligation."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."

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."
