Episode Quotes
Meredith: (opening voiceover) In order to properly treat a problem, a surgeon needs as much information as she can get. So we ask questions. Questions like "When did the pain begin?", "Have you experienced these symptoms before?", "Do you have a family history?", "Are you currently sexually active?", "Have you recently undergone surgery?" If you're unwilling or unable to answer these and other questions, we're forced to rely on tests for insight. Until those test results come back there's nothing we can do but wait.

Alex: I love easy wedding sex, which I'm gonna miss out on now 'cause you jerks can't keep your hands off each other. You made me bring sand to the beach, and it's sand I can't sleep with.
Jackson: Since when can you not sleep with interns?
Alex: I'm a home owner now. I've grown up. Besides, they get all hung up and sad when you don't want to be their boyfriend. It's not worth the hassle.
April: (sarcastically) You are one classy guy, Karev.
Alex: I make an effort.

Arizona: Callie. Please don't run.
Callie: What?
Arizona: It's all been awful. And I've been awful. But I'm just starting to feel like myself again. And I know that not everything can be about my leg all the time. And I don't want it to be, but right now, it just... it is. But I can't lose you. So please, don't run.
Callie: After the car accident you never left my side. Not once. There's no way I'm leaving yours.

Ben: Do you love me?
Bailey: More than I can hold in my heart.
Ben: You're sure about that?
Bailey: I am completely sure of that.
Ben: Do you want to spend the rest of your life with me, even if it is only in 5-minute increments every two months?
Bailey: I do.

Owen: The lawyer sent over the divorce papers.
Cristina: We don't have to do this right now. Let's just-let's just take a minute and think about what this means.
Owen: I'm done thinking about it, Cristina.
Cristina: And?
Owen: We should never have gotten married in the first place. When we did, we took something beautiful and we put it in this... box. And for the last two years, all we have done is beat against those walls and tear each other apart. Now we sign these papers that ends. We get out of that box. We don't hurt each other anymore. (they sign the divorce papers).

Callie: I am the worst maid of honour ever.
Arizona: Who made you maid of honour?
Callie: I called it.

Meredith: (closing voiceover) The next time you're in your doctor's office, remember, she's not asking all those questions for her health. She's asking them for yours. Tell her everything. The small details aren't trivial. They actually make the story. There's no rush. Take all the time you need. Start at the beginning.
