The episode begins and it's the last day of Meredith's first trimester, and it's also a potentially big day in the plane crash suit. Hunt rushes to catch Derek in the elevator and mentions that there might be a judgment that day. Jackson comes around to the group of interns and Stephanie says she's available to help with his case. He pretends it’s "fine" for her to help, but it is shown they're just acting indifferent to each other because they don't want anyone to know they're hooking up. Callie sets up Derek's first "real" day back, but it's not what anyone thinks it'll be. She's having him play ping pong for eight hours to simulate the hand movements he'd be doing in surgery. ..Read the full recap
Meredith: (opening voiceover) The big day is here, the day you're gonna hear the news, the test result. Is the biopsy malignant or benign? Am I gonna live or die? You just want to know. Even if the news is scary. Because then you can move on, whatever that means.
Cristina: Are you still pining over Jackson?
April: No. God. No. Why? Is he seeing someone?
Cristina: April, April... Jackson is like a cookie. People want to lose weight, they don't eat the cookie. But then they get so hung up on not having the cookie that their whole life is about the cookie.
April: My whole life is not about the cookie.
Meredith: We could buy a house.
Derek: We have a house.
Meredith: We could buy another house.
Derek: We could buy five houses.
Cristina: We could buy five houses with yards as big as football fields.
Meredith: We could buy the team to play on the football field.
Cristina: Who would play against them?
Derek: Well, we'd buy another team.
Meredith: I just wanted a house.
Cristina: Mo' money, mo' problems.
Alex: I should've been on that damn plane.
Cristina: Yeah, you know, that really is a problem, people claiming not to be pregnant when they really are.
Derek: You know?
Cristina: Of course I know. Her boobs got huge about two weeks ago, and she's eating everything in sight.
Derek: But she didn't tell you?
Cristina: No, but... she knows I know.
Derek: So you know she knows that you know?
Cristina: Mm-hmm. She'll tell me when she's ready to be happy about it. Congratulations.
Cristina: You need to forgive Owen.
Derek: For what?
Cristina: You're holding a grudge.
Derek: You make it sound like he stole my lunch from the refrigerator.
Cristina: Derek, we won. We get to move on. And we have to let Owen do the same.
Derek: He put us on that plane.
Cristina: You know what? You were chief once. You make a bunch of decisions based on what you know at the time. Forgive him.
Derek: It's not that easy.
Cristina: I know. Forgive him anyway.
Meredith: (closing voiceover) They say ignorance is bliss. Because once you know about the tumor or the prognosis, you can't go back. Will you be strong or will you fall apart? It's hard to predict. So don't worry about it. Enjoy the time you have before the news comes. Yep. Ignorance is bliss.
