The episode begins at a staff meeting; Hunt announces that its Arizona's first day back, but Callie says the doctors should all just not make a big deal of it. Hunt then announces that some people may have heard that some of the hospital's doctors have filed a lawsuit against the hospital and he ensures it doesn't affect anyone there. Arizona shows up and Callie has an intern following her around with a wheelchair in case she needs it. Cristina is telling Meredith about how she wishes Hunt was as gracious with her as he's being with the doctors who are suing the hospital. ..

Episode Quotes
Meredith: (opening voiceover) Can two people really be meant to be... M.F.E.O... Soul mates... It would be nice if it's true that we all have someone out there waiting for us, us waiting for them. I'm just not sure I believe it.

Graham: We've arrived! Dr. Bailey! How does the liver look? Is it a good one?
Bailey: The best. Dr. Ross spent the last 24 hours on the phone with U.N.O.S. to make sure it didn't go anywhere else.
Ross: They were threatening to send it to Portland, but I went all Dr. Bailey on 'em.
Graham: That's my man.

Cristina: Why am I here?
Owen: What?
Cristina: You pushed to have me back. I am curious why, because you don't seem to want me here.
Owen: Oh, you're gonna do great things, Cristina, and I'm running a hospital. I'd rather have you do that under our banner. You're good business.
Cristina: That's the only reason?
Owen: You moved away. You asked me to stop calling you. Now you're back. What-what do you want?
Cristina: I don't-I don't know. That's...
Owen: Well, let me tell you what we do know. We want different things. Every time we try to ignore that, we end up hurting each other. We don't work. That's what we know. And that hasn't changed. Nothing's changed at all.

Kid: My sneakers.
Alex: What's that?
Kid: Don't lose my sneakers. They're 200 bucks.
April: That's why his leg slipped through the stirrup. You have to wear a shoe with a heel when you ride a horse.
Alex: Kid spends 200 bucks on sneakers, he's obviously not the king of awesome choices.

Meredith: He touched my butt today… twice!
Derek: Really?
Meredith: How was your day, how was Callie?
Derek: Well she didn't touch my butt.
Meredith: Derek, I'm all for burying things with sex, but this is your career.
Derek: Wanna talk about it?
Meredith: Yeah.
Derek: Why do the surgery at all? I've always wanted to spend more time fishing, I've just gotten Zola her first fishing pole… it's pink.
Meredith: Derek?
Derek: There is no good solution. There are half-fixes. Maybe there's more function, maybe there's not. And if they can't fix it, then that's it. It's done, it's over.
Meredith: It's not over. You find a fix.
Derek: You used to be so dark and twisty, and now you're optimistic.
Meredith: Lets not talk about me.
Derek: Lets just not talk at all.

Meredith: (closing voiceover) Maybe I do believe it, all this meant to be stuff. Why not believe it, really? Who doesn't want more romance in their life? Maybe it's just up to us to make it happen, to show up and be meant for each other. At least that way, you'll find out for sure if you're meant to be or not.
