Bailey: I know that you're new here, I know that you probably still have a chip on your shoulder because your parking space at Mercy West was better and I know that you're an anesthesiologist, which means you make buckets of money logging reasonable hours sitting on your behind and flipping through "Architectural Digest" while somebody on the other side of the curtain does the real work and gets sued for it.
Ben: Excuse me. You have no idea-
Bailey: I don't know what they did at Mercy West, but here at Seattle Grace, we expect to be able to trust the gas man, trust him to do his job so that we can do ours. We expect the gas man to stay awake at the switch no matter how long and boring a procedure might be. We expect the gas man to stay focused enough to keep the patient unconscious!

I'm in the middle of a divorce. People call me the Nazi, and it's not because of my ice blue eyes. I spend 12 hours a day carving people up, and I like it. I have a child and I have no room for casual anything. I'm angry all the time. ... You want lunch, or you wanna show me the scan?

Miranda: So, how was the view?
William: I have been a proud father. Your whole life, I have been a proud father. Your mother and I sat in the front row of every dance class, every oboe recital, and we cheered. We sat in the front row of every graduation, I was always the first one on my feet, and the loudest one in the crowd. I have been a proud father. And today, Miranda, I sat in the gallery, and I watched you repair some fat man's hernia. And for the first time in my life, I felt ashamed of you. This is what you do on Christmas? For this you traded your husband? For this, you traded your child's family? So you can work all day, and go home alone, on Christmas, to an empty house, without even a tree. I have been a proud father, Miranda, but I would be a bad father today if I didn't look you in the eye and tell you that you have made a terrible mistake. You broke your family, you set your son up to fail. And the child that I raised, she was raised better than that.

That is not the kind of life I want to model for my child. That is not what I want him to believe married love is. And I know what's possible, I know what's out there for me because you taught me well. You and mom showed me what true love looks like, so I chose not to settle, and I'm happier for it. Even if I'm alone at Christmas. My child is healthy, and I'm happy. --You know, part of my happiness is the fact that I got to repair a woman's bowel and save her life today. And that's God's work, which makes this an appropriate Christmas dinner conversation. --I'm happy, and my child is healthy, and that's enough for me today, Dad. That's enough.

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)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.Meredith
