Meredith: (opening voiceover): Renegades, rule-breakers, gangsters with scalpels, this is the way we like to think of ourselves. It makes us feel bad-ass, sexy. Problem is, it's not exactly true. At heart, we're rule-followers, sheep. We don't break protocol. We follow it to a tee. Because if you don't follow protocol, our patients die and we're no longer bad ass, we're just bad.
Bailey: Why's there a trailer in my parking spot?
Alex: Is one of these yours? My bad.
Bailey: You're living here? In a trailer? In the parking lot?
Alex: Well, I'm in the race for chief resident. I get the surgeries first, I'm here when the chief arrives.
Bailey: Just get the thing outta my spot. Here. (throws her keys at him) And move my car.
Bailey: What's that all about?
Teddy: Chief's in the bathroom.
Bailey: With an audience?
Owen: His trial funding came through this morning and they all want in on it.
Teddy: Door's opening! (they all rush to the door and start talking to Richard at once)
Richard: Quiet! I haven't made my decision yet. Get away. (walks off)
Bailey: Stalking a man while he's in the restroom.
Jackson: I'd clean the restroom if he'd let me on this trial.
Cristina: I'd live in it.
Bailey: You are surgeons. If you wanna impress the Chief, impress him surgically.
Alex: You're gonna screw your way to the top, I'm impressed.
April: I am not screwing Stark.
Alex (mocking her): 'I am not screwing Stark.'
April: We're not even dating.
Alex (mocking her): 'We're not even dating.'
April: I'm serious, we're not. Maybe, I thought we were at first but it's not like that now. We're just... hanging out. We're friends.
Alex: Yeah, naked friends.
Lucy: I know they're not paying you well, but this seems a little extreme.
Alex: I just moved into my own place. I don't have time to shop. Pass me those cookies. (puts the cookies into his pocket) All these people here and you came and talked to me. You like me.
Lucy: No, I'm talking to you because I want something to eat and you're in the way.
Alex: Admit it, you find me charming.
Lucy: Are those pigs in the blanket?
Alex: And hot. Dirty hot.
Lucy: It was nice talking to you, Dr. Karev.
Callie: So, there is one more gift left to open. (holds out an envelope to Arizona)
Arizona: Oh, I... I didn't get you anything.
Callie: You got me a shower. Open it. (Arizona does so) It's a B&B a few hours away. We leave in the morning.
Arizona: But, I have patients, you have patients.
Callie: I'm extending an olive branch here. Because I know how annoying I must be to you right now. But since I was four and I got that doll that crap its pants for Christmas, I wanted a kid because, other than cracking bones, this baby's my dream. And I get to be insanely out of my mind happy for my dream, but I'm not discounting your need to vomit over my insanity. (they laugh) So, just let me take you to a stupid B&B for the weekend to thank you. (they hug & kiss)
Meredith: (closing voiceover): It's every doctor's dilemma. Do you play it safe and follow protocol? Or take a risk and invent a new one? There can be reward in risk. There can also be fallout. Still you need to book the system every once in a while. Bet big. And when you get the results you want, there's no better feeling in the world, but when you don't.
