Meredith: (opening voiceover) Sometimes, things are simply out of your control. You can't change them. You can't bend them to your will. It doesn't matter if you're already 45 minutes late, if your hair isn't brushed, and you haven't fixed breakfast and your hemorrhaging brain spills by the second while you sit here dying. Dying inside
Bailey: Dr. Grey, do you know why men think they can run the world and women can't? Because of crying babies.
Meredith: I was hoping no one would hear it.
Bailey: Er.. we can ALL hear it. I can hear it. Dr. Ross out there can hear it. Only difference is the crying doesn't affect him, but you and I, are genetically predisposed to respond to crying babies. It's pulling your focus.
Meredith: It's gonna be fine. I'm almost done.
Bailey: Okay this is about world domination. If we are going to take over, we need to have our babies crying somewhere other than the ICU.
Dr. Thomas: Biggest aneurysm I have ever seen.
Cristina: Considering how old you are, that is sayin' somethin'.
Cristina: Oh, stop being a bitter working mother.
Meredith: I am, I have pee on my shoe.
Cristina: You're a doctor! Can't you call it urine?
Meredith: Because 'urine on my shoe' is more appealing?
Cristina: You need a bug out bag.
Meredith: What's that?
Cristina: Like a diaper bag for adults. I'm making mine right now.
Meredith: Well, what do you have so far?
Meredith: Well, that's a good start.
Cristina: What else?
Meredith: Well, the sign of a well-packed diaper bag is backups in case you run out.
Cristina: So more Tequila?
Meredith: Can't you just give your sex friend more sex so he doesn't fire your old man friend?
Cristina: I'm not a prostitute!
Dr. Parker: *kisses Cristina's shoulder*
Dr. Parker: Do you like being the big spoon or the little spoon?
Dr. Cristina Yang(Mental Response): I am not a spoon. I'm a knife and I’m gonna stab you in the eyeball.
Dr. Cristina Yang (Verbal Response): You know, I think I'm gonna try and get some sleep.
Dr. Craig Thomas: *hands Cristina a small bakery box*
Dr. Craig Thomas: Don't get crumbs on the upholstery.
Dr. Cristina Yang: *opens the box*
Dr. Cristina Yang: Aww, you brought me a Danish?
Dr. Craig Thomas: Don’t get emotional. Just eat it.
Dr. Thomas: (closing voiceover) Breathe, Dr. Yang. Don't be crass. You're skulking. Women of your generation are graceless. It's an affront to nature. Mediocre surgeons will see you and feel themselves wilting in your shadow. Do not shrink to console them. Do not look for friends here. You won't find them. None of these people have the capacity to understand you. They never will. If you're lucky, one day when you're old and shrivelled like me, you will find a young doctor with little regard for anything but their craft. And you'll train them like I trained you. Until then, read a good book. You have greatness in you, Yang. Don't disappoint.
