Grey's Anatomy Season 5 Episode 23 Quotes

We spend our whole lives worrying about the future, planning for the future, trying to predict the future, as if figuring it out will cushion the blow. But the future is always changing. The future is the home of our deepest fears and wildest hopes. But one thing is certain when it finally reveals itself. The future is never the way we imagined it.

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Swinder: You wanna remove her hippocampus?
Derek: One of them. It's a common procedure for seizure patients
Swinder: Moving her hippocampus could compromise her memory, her speech, she wouldn't be able to practice medicine anymore.
Derek: I have performed this surgery hundreds of times.
Swinder: On cancer patients?
Derek: No. But it's...
Izzie: If you do the surgery I could lose my memory?
Derek: It's unlikely but it's possible.
Izzie: And, if you don't do the surgery...
Swinder: We could shrink the tumor with IL2.
Izzie: If the tumor doesn't kill me first.
Derek: Why take the chance?
Swinder: Have you even done a WADA test to see how her memory would be affected?
Derek: Putting her brain to sleep and asking her to remember a bunch of flash cards is not an accurate assessment of the post surgical outcome.
Swinder: But, it would tell us whether or not she could function afterwards. And, as Dr. Stevens primary physician...
Derek: Fine I'll do it. It's unnecessary but...
Swinder: The surgery is unnecessary.
Derek: The tumor is already symptomatic, she's having hallucinations.
