Oh, hey, Dr. O'Malley. Hi. I was looking for you. Before, ...
THATCHER: "Oh, hey, Dr. O'Malley."
GEORGE: [surprised] "Hi."
THATCHER: "I was looking for you. Before, when I was asking about Meredith... You know her. You're her friend?"
GEORGE: "I used to be her roommate."
THATCHER: "Oh, so, you know her really well."
GEORGE: "Pretty well, yeah."
THATCHER: "Um, she... she came to see me a couple weeks ago..."
GEORGE: [pauses] "A couple weeks ago?"
THATCHER: "Yeah. I... I didnâ€™t know what to say to her. She looks... so much like her mother. Ellis was cold. I mean, I was a coward, I was. I left. But her mother would never let me know her and now I donâ€™t know how to know her."
GEORGE: [pauses] "Well, Meredith is anything but cold. She smiles... not that often, but when she does, you know because she's really going through a lot, but it'sâ€¦ you just feel warm. She's kind. I mean, she can be a little selfish at times, and she's flawed. But she's kind. She cares about people and, um... she cares about her patients. She's going to be a brilliant surgeon. You know, around here, she's known as the one to beat. So, I... I guess she has that in common with her mom, but the rest of her, I think, the rest of that, she gets from you."
THATCHER: "Hmm... do you... know where she is?"
GEORGE: "I think she left already. But I could tell her you were here, if you want me to."
THATCHER: "Yeah. Okay. Thank you."
GEORGE: "You're welcome."
GEORGE: "Okay. Bye."
MEREDITH: [whispering, hiding] "Thank you, George."
[narrating] "So go ahead. Argue with the ref, change the rules. Cheat a little, take a break and tend to your wounds. But play. Play. Play hard, play fast... play loose and free. Play as if there were no tomorrow. It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game... right?MEREDITH

[narrating] "A good basketball game can have us all on the edge of our seats. Games are all about the glory, pain and the play-by-play. Then there are the more solitary games. The ones we play all by ourselves. The social games, the mind games. We use them to pass the time to make life more interesting... to distract us from what's really going on. There are those of us who love to play games, any games. And there are those of us who love to play a little too much."MEREDITH
