I think about my mom's note all the time - "Tell Meredith not to..." Not to cave? Not to care? Not to give up so easily? Not to fall in love? Not to have children? Not to tell a lie? She left me wondering what to do, what not to do. She left me knowing everything was up to me, and me alone. And, she left me with no one to ask so I would decide what she meant to write. Tell Meredith not to be afraid. Goodbye, mom.

Meredith

When my mother's Alzheimer's got bad, I was going through her bills and I found a notepad. Written on it were the words, "Important! Tell Meredith not to..." And, that was it. She never finished that sentence. Tell Meredith, not to what? Not to drink too much? Not to pet strange dogs? Not to give her heart away? Not to leave the sprinklers on? We didn't exactly talk a lot in those days. I regret that. I wish we had.

Meredith

Meredith: She's going to need me now. For how long, I don't know.
Nathan: I know. Our timing is just...off, I guess.

Never make yourself small for anyone. Be your own person. And try wearing a little lipstick.

Diane

Did you call about my eyelashes? You know I want to die with my eyelashes on.

Diane

Maggie: She's gonna go. I'm not ready. I'm not ready.
Meredith: You're never ready. You just...do it. Listen to her. Talk to her about whatever she wants to talk about. Record her voice in your mind. Just keep sitting there.

I can't save anything. I could have stopped it if I had known.

Maggie

Richard: Are you alright?
Maggie: No. No. I just wish my dad was here.

I don't want to die.

Diane

When I die, she needs to know that she did everything she could.

Diane

Meredith, I love my mother enough not to say screw it and throw her down a damn drain!

Maggie

I'd like to pay my respects to Ellis. I'm here and staying in her house. It seems like the right thing to do.

Diane

Diane

Maggie: Meredith, if you won't do the surgery you should go. We'll find another surgeon who will.
Meredith: No, it's not...
Maggie: No.
Meredith: Maggie, it's not your decision to make.
Diane: Meredith, dear, I'm firing you. You're no longer one of my doctors.
