Welcome back to the TV Fanatic Grey's Anatomy Round Table!

Read their answers to the questions and weigh in with yours!
What was your favorite quote or scene from Grey's Anatomy Season 10 Episode 18?
Christina: Overall, it was a very fun installment. My favorite part was when Meredith totally knocked it out of the park standing in for McDreamy during his speech.
Jarrod: I enjoyed seeing a lot more medical storylines being incorporated into this episode and hope that they'll continue to be in the next few episodes. I also enjoyed Alex being woo'd by a medical practice. Here's hoping he takes it!
Steve: Derek rehearsing with baby Bailey. As a fan of Meredith and Derek from the beginning, and the proud owner of little kids, it was an easy call.
Which medical case did you like best?
Christina: The bubble boy case has been done time and time again and it’s always still very heartbreaking. I am really intrigued by Cristina’s case with the family with the failing hearts and can’t wait to find out more.
Jarrod: The one that definitely piqued my curiosity was the siblings both suffering from the same heart condition. Might this be the case Cristina calls Dr. Burke back in on?
Steve: Pretty sure every medical show (see gallery below!) works from the same playbook when it comes to these cases, but darn if they don't make you wanna stand up and cheer just the same. I liked the patient who refused to put toxins into his body because that is so in vogue nowadays. It's interesting, the psychology behind it, as people really feel passionately that they are doing the right thing. The way germs and their proliferation were depicted in the opening minutes was cool as well.
What did you think about “Dr. Butthole” and his offer to Alex?
Christina: I liked him. He’s so cool and different and made the episode fun. Now, about him introducing Alex to the private practice life, I am actually interested in seeing where that storyline goes. I could definitely see Alex working at the hospital and with the new, vivacious doctor.
Jarrod: I thought it was an excellent proposal for Alex and I kinda hope he takes it. I understand they had to write it in just incase Justin Chambers decides to leave, but Alex is a surgeon and I couldn't see him leaving that for a job at a practice.
Steve: Definitely a fun twist and quality addition to this installment, though I can't see him actually leaving. He'll give it serious thought, no doubt about it. Who wouldn't want to work less hard for more money? At the end of the day, though, he's a hardcore surgeon who is right where he belongs.
Callie and Jo made a great team in ortho this week. Name another pairing that you’d like to see.
Christina: Stephanie and April! Too soon?!
Jarrod: Stephanie and Cristina. I know Sandra Oh's leaving soon, but Stephanie and Cristina made a good pairing last season and I'm sure Stephanie could learn a lot as a surgeon and grow as a person too.
Steve: Arizona and Jo. Or Cristina and anyone.
Arizona’s superpower of knowing when she’s going to get sick comes in very handy. What would your superpower be?
Christina: In short, I want to control time. How awesome would that be?!
Jarrod: To have a photographic memory. Like Bailey said to Lexie back in Grey's Anatomy Season 6; "that memory of yours is a superpower."
Steve: It'd be great to know when someone's telling the truth or you're being lied to. Like conclusively know it for a fact. Can you think of anything more useful?
