Cristina: How's it going with your shrink?
Owen: Ah, I'm doing better. Inch by inch. Progress is slow. It was your ceiling fan, above your bed. Blades spinning like blades of a chopper, um, my shrink said that was the trigger to me ah, choking you.
Cristina: Oh. You know we should probably get going...

Owen: Nice work today.
Cristina: Nice work today! Seriously?
Owen: I'm sorry?
Cristina: Run to my truck. You got O'malley clipping bleeders, and you're telling me to run to your truck.
Owen: You know what my truck looks like. O'malley doesn't. But, that... that run you took saved the guys life.
Cristina: Yeah, well all day, all day you were teaching O'Malley and you ignored me.
Owen: O'Malley wants to be a trauma surgeon. You've already declared cardio. I didn't do anything wrong today. I treated you like I would anyone else.
Cristina: (pushes him) I am not like anyone else. Take care now? What is that? What are you like, you're not happy now? What... what are you? You know, just a choke 'em and forget 'em kind of guy?
Owen: (pulls out a piece of paper and hands it to Cristina)
Cristina: Hey there now. Take care now. Nice work Yang. What is this?
Owen: It's my shrink. My shrink gave me these sentences. We ah, we came up with them together. They're all 3 word sentences. So I could have something to say to you instead of the 3 words that are... that are killing me. The 3 words that you know I feel but I can't say them, because it would be cruel to say them, because I am no good for you. I don't wanna torture you. I don't wanna look at you longingly when I know I can't be with you. So, yeah I'm smiling, and I'm saying take care now. I'm letting you off the hook. I'm trying, I'm trying so hard to let you off the hook. I'm trying to make it right. What I did to you. Can't you see that? I'm just trying to make it right.
Cristina: (gives the paper back) Take care now.

Owen: I jumped. In front of her car. And she was just driving to the bank.
Dr. Wyatt: Are you talking about Cristina?
Owen: I jumped in front of her. I knew, I knew I wasn't together. I knew no good for her, or for anyone. And I wrecked her. And that is unforgivable. I don't forgive myself for that. I can't forgive myself for that. And I feel shameful about that. That is what I fell today. Shame.
Dr. Wyatt: Good. That's a start.
Owen: How is that a start?
Dr. Wyatt: You named it. The feeling. You have to know what it is, before you can start to navigate to somewhere better.

Owen: I don't feel anything
Dr. Wyatt: Nothing? No anger? Happiness? Unhappiness? Guilt? Survivors guilt? You know it's very common with veterans.
Owen: It's not about my platoon.
Dr. Wyatt: You have shoved your feelings aside for so long. I'm asking you to claim them. And Owen, this is about your platoon.
Owen: It's about the fact that I tried to choke my girlfriend to death. What? Are you saying the way I feel about my platoon and the way I feel about what happened with Cristina are the same? They're not the same.
Dr. Wyatt: Well, how will you know if you can't name those feelings?
Owen: It's not what it's... It's...I don't know.

Cristina: I don't think ... I can't handle this after all.
Owen: What, what do you mean, what are you saying?

Cristina: I haven't seen you all day.
Owen: What if I hadn't woken up? I can't even remember what happened. It's gone. I have no memory, no way to... I would never hurt you, ever. But I did. My hands just... like how could... how could my own two hands be capable... I can't do this. Cristina... I can't...We can't do this... we need to stop seeing each other.
Cristina: But you did wake up. Stop blaming yourself for something that is out of your control.
Owen: We have to stop seeing each other.
Owen: I almost
Cristina: Almost what? I told you I know my limits. Let me decide what I can handle.

Owen: I came back in one piece. I have both arms, both legs. Lots of other guys came back with real injuries. The worst I have is a couple of night mares or freezing for a moment.
Derek: Is that what happened last night? You had a freezing moment? If you want, I can help.
Owen: Yeah, I'm not the one who needs help around here. I'm not the one who cut out half a woman's brain and ran off to hide. I'm not the one who half this hospital is talking about behind their backs. So maybe you should spend a little less time worrying about me, and you know just take a look in the mirror. Alright.

Derek: You know they're doing tests that show faltered brain anatomy in patients with PTSD. They're actually getting close to understanding the physical side of the psychological trauma. It's amazing what you can see with an MRI.
Owen: What did Meredith tell you about last night? What did she say?
Derek: Post traumatic stress is a real injury Owen. It can be healed. There are resources, MED centres, therapy. You shouldn't try an handle this on your own.

Owen: I am so sorry. I don't know what I'm, I'm... I don't know... I'm sorry.
Cristina: Look at me.
Owen: I'm sorry.
Cristina: Look at me. I'm fine. See? It's ok, you were asleep. It's ok. Ok? It's ok.
Owen: I'm sorry. (cries)
Cristina: It's ok. It's ok. I know. It's ok. You were asleep. It's ok. Ok? It's ok.
