Meredith (opening voiceover): The human body is a highly pressurized system. The blood pressure measures the force of blood pulsating through the arteries. It's important to keep this pressure regulated. Low or inadequate pressure can cause weakness or failure. It's when the pressure gets too high that problems really occur. If the pressure continues to increase, a closer examination is called for. Because it's the best indicator that something is going terribly wrong.
Meredith: You smell like you're sweating booze, where have you been?
Jackson: I want the weekend you had.
Alex: Well, what happens in Vegas, you know? Hey, who's Stark? I'm supposed to be on Stark's service today.
April: Oh, me, too. He's the new peds attending. Since Robbins left.
Alex: Crap. I can't handle a bunch of sick kids today, I can't do it.
Stark: So, you must be Dr. Karev. You missed my rounds today.
Alex: Uh, sorry. I had car trouble.
Stark: Ah, well, there's a classic. So, what you're here just kinda yell at my patients and...
Alex: I'm sorry. Look, uh, Dr. Stark, I'm feeling very sick today so I think that since you know, you have Kepner...
Stark: Well, let's see here. No fever, you don't seem to be vomiting, you retaining control of your bowels?
Stark: Well, since hangovers are not contagious I'd say you're working.
Meredith: The last thing that Cristina wants is to talk to me. We just have to give her some space.
Owen: We don't have time to give her space. She'll be locked out of this program, and I do not believe that is what she wants. I mean, you think that's what she wants? (Mer is silent) I'm asking you, Grey.
Cristina: We are awesome. I can't believe we did all of this.
Callie: Uh, I did all of this. You opened one bottle of wine. Could you find where the napkins are please? (Derek walks in) Damnit. Not ready!
Cristina: Hey, if you're here for the party, you're like way too early.
Derek: I'm not here for the party.
Cristina: Are you here to tell me to come back?
Derek: No. But a bunch of other people are coming to do that.
Cristina: Oh, God.
Jackson: You think it was hard for Yang? To quit? To just walk away?
Lexie: Oh, don't be stupid, you're not quitting. Besides, you might have just gotten yourself fired, or arrested. Probably both.
Jackson: Yeah, well, April is the only friend I have left here, so.
Lexie: Don't be stupid.
Meredith (closing voiceover): Every pressurized system needs a relief valve. There has to be a way to reduce the stress, the tension, before it becomes too much to bare. There has to be a way to find relief because if the pressure doesn't find a way out, it will make one. It will explode. It's the pressure we put on ourselves that's the hardest to bare. The pressure to be better then we already are. The pressure to be better than we think we can be. It never ever lets up. It just builds and builds and builds.
