Meredith (opening voiceover): Even good marriages fail. One minute you're standing on solid ground, the next minute, you're not. And there's always two versions, yours and theirs. Both versions start the same way though; both start with two people falling in love. You think yours is the one that's gonna make it. So it always comes as a shock. The moment you realize it's over. One minute you're standing on solid ground, the next minute, you're not.
April (walks up): Dr. Bailey, how'd you do it?
Bailey: I put down the English muffin first, then the bacon, then the egg.
Bailey (holds her hand up to stop April): Some people may be suprised by this method thinking that you would put the bacon on top of the eggs and those people would be right, because see what I'm doing? (puts bacon on top of the eggs) Bam! An extra layer of bacon right on top, and then you put on the other half of the muffin. And there you go, that's a breakfast sandwich.
April: No, no, no. I mean, how did you get people to listen to you as chief resident?
Bailey: Dr. Kepner, I'm eating, leave me alone with my food. Figure it out on your own.
Teddy: Hey, you guys going to that breakfast thing?
Arizona: Uh, yeah after we drop her off at day care.
Teddy: Oh my, God. Look at her she is so beautiful. (in baby voice to Sofia) Hey, hey. You are beautiful. And you got the best mommies, did you know that? Yes, you do. Oh, you so do. (Sofia coos) Hello, hello, hello.
Callie: What's wrong with her?
Arizona: She's getting laid, she's unnaturally cheerful. (Lexie walks by with a group of interns)
Callie: Oh, new interns. I hate new interns.
Teddy: Seriously? I love new interns. They're the future, the next generation, filled with hope and promise, innovation.
Arizona: Wow. The sex with Henry must be really good.
Teddy: Earth-shattering. (Arizona covers Sofia's ears) Not even Yang is gonna get me down.
Teddy: Oh, God what is she doing here?
Cristina (looks around): I'm sorry? Wh-?
Teddy: It's what you're thinkin', I mean you thought I'd run away to Germany and you wouldn't have to see me again which was a relief after all the drama we've been through in the last year. I'm right. Tell me I'm right.
Teddy: Okay, so here's the deal, I'm here and I'm in a happy place and I'm done with drama so, if you wanna learn, I wanna teach.
Cristina (looking shocked): Great.
Cristina: You know, there's bound to be piles of head trauma, Derek's gonna have to talk to you.
Meredith: I got fired.
Meredith (looking at Alex): The Chief fired me.
Cristina: You son of a bitch. I mean, are you happy now? Because this is all because of you. (starts shoving him) You and your big fat stupid mouth.
Alex: Get off. (Cristina continues to shove him)
Bailey: Kepner, control your people.
Meredith: April, I need you to reassign these cases.
April: Uh Yang, take over Meredith's cases.
Cristina: I'm with Altman and Meredith should keep her cases.
April: I am your chief resident and you have to do what I say.
Meredith: April, it's fine. I can wait. Just assign them when you have a minute. (April walks off)
Cristina: You're just gonna give up?
Meredith: I was fired.
Cristina: So what are you going to do about it? You have to go talk to the board.
Meredith: The board fired me.
Meredith: Owen. She didn't have the abortion. She wants to but she can't do it because of you. Because she loves you and instead of loving her, you're punishing her. And for what? For being the woman that you fell in love with?
Owen: This isn't any of your business.
Meredith: Okay, do you know what will happen to Cristina if she has a kid that she doesn't want? It will almost kill her. Trying to pretend that she loves a kid as much as she loves surgery will almost kill her, and it'll almost kill your kid. Do you know what it's like to be raised by someone who didn't want you? I do. To know you stood in the way of your mother's career? I do. I was raised by a Cristina. My mother was a Cristina. And as the child she didn't want, I am telling you, don't do this to her, because she's kind and she cares and she won't make it. The guilt of resenting her own kid will eat her alive.
Alex: Wait, Bailey paged you too? Any idea why?
Cristina: Who cares? As long as it gets me away from Altman.
April: She's gonna fire us, isn't she?
Alex: Why would she fire us?
Jackson: There was that patient mix-up in the OR.
Cristina: Oh, you should be fired.
April: Me? You guys didn't update the board.
Alex: That's why she looks so pissed off.
Meredith (closing voiceover): Do you have what it takes? If your marriage is in trouble, can you weather the storm? When the ground gives way and your world collapses, maybe you just need to have faith and trust that you can survive this together. Maybe you just need to hold on tight and no matter what, don't let go.
