DEREK: "Do you happen to know what time of year neurosurgeons are busiest, Dr. Stevens?"

They go skating for the first time in a decade and break their heads open.

There you find your own tribe."

DEREK: [pauses] "I'm not saying this to hurt you, or because I want to leave you, because I don't. Meredith wasn't a fling. She wasn't revenge. I fell in love with her. That doesn't go away because I decided to stay with you."
