Callie: Come on Willow. You can do this. You lived in a tree, you crapped in a bucket, you can do this.
Arizona: She crapped in a bucket?
Callie: What are you doing here?
Arizona: Saw it on the board. Never seen an intermodulary rod put into a femur before. So, bucket?
Callie: Yeah. Bucket on a pulley. She's ah, up in the tree right. So, she lowers the crap bucket to a friend, everyday, who empties it, cleans it, puts food it, and sends it back up the tree.
Arizona: Oh, that's friendship. Oh.
Arizona: You know they teach us in MED school how not to care so much. We drape the patient's so we don't see their faces, we do a thousand different things to care a little less. You care like crazy, and I love that. And I'll keep loving that even if you decide to lie to your family.
Mrs Stevens: Oh, the lovers card. Do you know what this means?

Alex: It's meat. It's definitely some kind of meat.

Alex: Oh! I'll go check, see if I can get things moving along.
Izzie: Thank you.
Mrs Stevens: So tell me about Dr. Hottie. How long have you all been together?
Izzie: Mom. It's not just a mole. I have stage 4 melanoma. It's in my organs. It's not just a mole.
Mrs Stevens: You don't have skin on your organs, hun. That doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Don't just sigh at me Izobel. Just, you know. Just explain.

Meredith: I know Richard Webber's your friend.
Derek: It's not about Richard.
Meredith: It is! It is about him. Because, I have to deal with him on a professional basis everyday. And I have tried to draw a line with him, and he won't respect it. He doesn't respect it. He uses his relationship with you...
Derek: Richard doesn't use his relationship...
Meredith: Stop defending him! Ok, be on my side. I need you to be on my side.
Meredith: He's not your best friend. He's not your Cristina. Which is why I feel like it's ok to say to you he is not invited to our wedding. Because, I swear Derek, if he's there, I won't be. And I'm the bride, so I have to be. So, I'm begging you please. He's not invited, ok?
Meredith: Thank you.
Richard: I see that you're angry, and may be angry with your mother.
Meredith: Don't do that! I'm not your friend, and I am not your family. You don't get to call me into your office on personal business, and you don't get to speak to me this way right now. It's an abuse of power. I'm a resident. I work for you. You have to speak to me like I'm a resident. And for the record Chief, somebody had to stand up for that little girl, and I make no apologies for that.
Richard: You wanna just be a resident? Fine. Alright then. That woman, is a victim of domestic violence. This hospital is supposed to be a safe place for her to come and tell her story. And as her doctors it is our job to help her. You did not do your job. Instead you further battered a battered woman.
Meredith: What about the little girl!
Richard: Dr. Grey. You will stay away from that child. You will stay away from that family. You will not come within 100 feet of them. And if you do, you will be suspended from this hospital pending reevaluation of your emotional and mental fitness for residency.
Maddie's mom: Wait. Maddie needs to tell her daddy she's sorry before he goes. Maddie, you need to tell your daddy you're sorry. Maddie, people die in surgery. You don't want your daddy to die without telling him how sorry you are. Come on, lets go tell him we love him.
Meredith: You know, no. No!
Maddie's mom: What?
Meredith: Maddie, stay right here ok.
Richard: Dr. Grey.
Meredith: No. She will not go apologize to him. You should be apologizing to her. I understand you're a victim here, but there is no room for you to be a victim when your 6 year old is on the line. She's stronger than you. Your 6 year old is stronger than you. At least she did something. She stood up for the two of you, which is more than you did for her. No, she won't apologize to him.
Mrs Stevens: Ahuh, oh really? Ahuh, really? Oh, yeah, that's great. That's great! Oh, thank you. Yeah, thank you hun. Thanks a million. Oh! Oh, that's great news Cricket. You're gonna be just fine.
Izzie: Oh yeah, let me guess, your psychic told you that.
Mrs Stevens: It's not just any old psychic, he's the best that I've ever heard of. Anyway, he said that skin cancer is highly curable if caught early.
Izzie: Oh that's great. A psychic with internet access. Let me guess how much that call cost you mother... $19.99 a minute.
Mrs Stevens: Well when you have a sick child Cricket, moneys not really the first thing on your mind. You seem like a very capable doctor, Dr. Bailey. Can I trust that you caught my daughter's skin cancer early.
Bailey: Um, well, Mrs. Stevens.
Mrs Stevens: Oh no, Call me Robbie hun.
Izzie: No mom. Don't call her hun. Don't call Bailey hun. You know, if you have questions you can just ask me. She's very busy and this thing I have it's complicated.
Mrs Stevens: I know it's complicated Isobel, I'm not a complete idiot. Now, I saw this thing on Tyra Show. There was this woman who had a mole on her private parts, and the dermatologist did not bother to check her privates 'cause she thought that they gyney would have done it. But, the gyney didn't do it. Maybe she didn't even go to the gyney. I don't know. Anyway, It was bad. She was bald and everything. She did not have a mole on her private parts did she?
Bailey: No, ma'am, no. She did not.
Mrs Stevens: Good.
Richard: How'd it go?
Arizona: Oh, Dr. Grey. If you're free, Maddie here could use a little cleaning and laceration repair 'cause I'm being paged.
Richard: Meredith. Are you ok?
Meredith: I'm great. Thanks (takes Maddie's file) Hey Maddie, I'm Dr. Grey. Mind if I take a look at that cut on your face?
Maddie's Mom: You know, she's so sorry. So sorry.
Maddie: Is my daddy gonna die?
Meredith: I don't know. I hope not.
Maddie: How come?
Meredith: How come what?
Maddie: How come he don't die? I shot him lots'a times. How come he don't die?
Mark: Are you ok? Are you crying?
Lexie: My dad's here.
Lexie: He's here, and he's sober, and I would really like for you to meet him.
Mark: Oh. Oh, um, oh!
Lexie: How 'bout, how 'bout dinner? Tonight. Camparo's at 8?
Mark: Ah, Lexie. Ah, dad's historically do not love me. And, by that I mean when I was a teenage, dad's did not love me. That's the last time I had to meet anyone's dad.
Lexie: I'm crazy about you, and I know that my dad would be too. You have nothing to worry about.
Mark: That's what you said when you told me to meet Derek. Lexie, I'm closer to your dad's age than yours. So, I'm thinking he may not love me so much. You know, what we have is fantastic. Why don't we just keep it for us?
Mrs Stevens: And then you remember Jade, from 114. Well, she had a spot of cancer last year. It was breast cancer. It was such a shame I thought, cos she had such a great rack. God, do you remember what a great rack she had? Oh, you used to do all those little exercises like this to try to get yours to grow like hers.
Mrs Stevens: Anyway, my point is, Jade, well, she had them cut off. Both of them. Just to be on the safe side. And, they look even better now. For real. Life gave her lemons, and she made cantaloupes. So maybe, I dunno, maybe honey, there's an upside in this for you too. Right?
Izzie: Um, mom, just um, just listen ok? I... I don't have breast cancer. Ok, I have skin cancer. Or, what started out as skin cancer.
Mrs Stevens: Wait, hang on. Skin cancer? Oh, God! Izabel Stevens. Oh, you scared the hell out of me. And then you made me come all the way up here to Seattle just for some ugly old mole. Oh, sweetheart.
Izzie: No, I didn't. Haha, I didn't make you come up here. I ah, I didn't even call you. I'm really... I'm curious, who did? Who called? Who called her? Seriously, who called her?
Thatcher: (reads from a book) I'm so deeply sorry for every time that I ever hurt you, or disappointed you, or let you down. I don't deserve your forgiveness, but I hope, I so hope, that you give me the opportunity to earn it.
Meredith: Thank you. Congratulations on... you seem well. Good luck.
Meredith: Hey, you got paged too?
Lexie: Yeah, report to the Chief's office, STAT. What, what do you think? Why? Why would he page us STAT?
Meredith: I don't know. Did we kill anyone lately and don't remember?
Richard: Your father's here. He's 29 days sober, just out of rehab. He's taking it seriously. He's working his steps. The 9th step is to make amends wherever possible. It's the key to an alcoholics recovery. To take responsibility for the wreckage of his past. I paged you here to ask you to please hear him out as a favor to me. To please, hear him out.
Meredith: Ah, I'm covering the pit Chief.
Richard: I'll cover it.
Meredith: But, there's a trauma coming in.
Richard: I've got it Meredith. Please. Please.
