Bailey: So that's what we missed on the MRI?
Derek: Yeah. You know that part of the brain that reacted in the hallucination?
Derek: It was the other temporal lobe.
Bailey: That, that's the tumor?
Derek: Yeah. Tiny. Too small to pick up on a normal MRI.
Bailey: But, ok, if it's that small how are you gonna get to it?
Derek: (give bailey a telling look) I wish there something more I could do for her. I wish I could. I like Steven's. She's one of the good ones. I wish there was something I could do for her.
Bailey: I um, I know something you can do.

Izzie: So now what? I just, try to have a hallucination?
Bailey: Steven's... Is it always Denny? No one else?
Bailey: Oh nothing. I mean, it makes sense. He's a man you love.
Izzie: He's not the man I love.
Bailey: He's not?
Izzie: Well, I mean... I love Denny. I will always love Denny. He means a lot to me. But, I think I hallucinate Denny because I associate him death and dieing. When I think about my future. Who I am now, who I want to be, how I want to spend the rest of my life. When you get that flutter in your chest. Alex. Alex is the man I love.
Izzie: I love Alex Karev. So, lets find this tumor and get it out of me, so that we can have our perfect wedding. A wedding not wasted on two people who don't appreciate weddings. (Bailey laughs)
Derek: I can hear you.
Izzie: I know you can hear me. I mean for you to hear me. What if I can't make him appear?
Derek: We'll wait until he appears.
Izzie: Well, you have to be at the church in 2 hours. It could take more than 2 hours.
Derek: I'll be late.
Izzie: No. No! No being late. I will make him appear. I can do this. Come on Denny.

Izzie: I'm looking, But, I don't see anything.
Derek: Because there's nothing there. The scan's clean.
Bailey: I told you.
Izzie: Then why is Denny back? The man's a hallucination, that means there has to be something there.
Bailey: Izzie, if it's clear then...
Izzie: I wanna go to this wedding. I wanna watch the bride walk down the aisle. I wanna hear the vows. I wanna catch the bouquet. I planned this wedding down to the very last detail. It's the perfect wedding. This wedding, is perfect. You know how much I wanna be there. So why would I tell you about Denny? Today of all days, why wouldn't I just wait? Denny is back. That means something is there.
Bailey: It's not like we can just map the brain for hallucinations the way we do with seizures.
Derek: Wait a minute. What are hallucinations?
Izzie: Hallucinations are neurons firing in the brain.
Derek: Well, it's never been done before. But if, if we can somehow induce your hallucination, there's a chance we could pick it up on an EEG. Then, we could pin point the part of the brain that's hallucinating.

Izzie: You should see the bridesmaid dresses. Awh, and the flowers! They're being delivered at 5. I had to pay extra for them to decorate the church, but, Derek gave me his credit card. Told me to do what I had to do. So... It's gonna be perfect.

Alex: Ok, that tastes like crap.
Alex: The shrimp tastes sweet and spicy. Kind of like our first date. The good part, the part before I didn't kiss you on the porch.
Izzie: Ok, nice.
Alex: The chicken, tastes like a drive to the beach with the windows down and the dog hanging out the window. Like when you're a kid. It's salty. Tastes good. But, I'd definitely vote for the shrimp if we have to choose.
Izzie: There's one more.
Alex: Ok, yeah. Yeah, that tastes like crap!
Bailey: Ok, the OR's prepped and ready. How 'bout you?
Izzie: Yeah, I'm ready. (Alex kisses her) Now, that tastes like crap.

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.
