Meredith: (opening voiceover) There is a procedure to treat epilepsy that involves surgically severing the connection between the left and right brain. The goal is to block signals that cause seizures. The problem is, this also cuts off the brain's ability to communicate with itself. The left side has no idea what the right side is up to. The patient may experience problems with coordination, memory, speech. It's a drastic solution that's only considered when all other options have failed, because once a surgeon makes that cut, there's no going back.
April: You shouldn't spread that kind of rumour.
Shane: It's not a rumour. I heard it from Brooks. She heard it from--
April: That is a textbook rumour!
Stephanie: We're all about to lose our jobs, and all I can think about is the fact that I'm gonna have to stop sleeping with him. I'm so gross.
Leah: Come on. The sex can't be that good.
Stephanie: Look at him. I'm gonna go talk to him.
Leah: Every step you take is a giant leap backward for womankind. There goes the right to vote. Roe v. Wade.
Stephanie: Cut it out!
Alex: You're gonna be fine. There are other programs.
Jo: Not like this one. Not with a teacher like you who shows me cool tumor-in-a-bag surgeries and thinks it's fun to talk to little kids about guts and stuff. You know, I, uh, I barely saw you this week, and it sucked. I'll find another job. Whatever. I, uh, but I don't want to never see you again.
Jackson: Wait, you woke up me at the crack of dawn to tell me you're coming to Seattle to be my boss? That doesn't---
Catherine: Oh, no, no, sweetheart. You misunderstood. The foundation is electing you as our representative. We're the majority shareholder. That means you are in charge.
Jackson: (stunned) Wait. What?
Catherine: Now give your mama a kiss, Jackson. She just bought you a hospital.
Leah: Is he dying today sick or can't play soccer but still hanging on sick?
Brooks: I don't understand, this morning you called this place a sinking ship
Bailey: That's different, i never thought it would actually sink. you keep your mouth shut, you hear me?
Brooks: (to all the interns) They are stripping us for parts like a busted-ass truck.
Leah: We are supposed to believe that just because you got a kicky little haircut?
Brooks: And also because it's true!
Ross: I'm gonna be sick. And I have a surgery. I'm gonna be sick in my final surgery. This is not how I wanted to go out.
Meredith: (closing voiceover) There's a reason surgeons are willing to roll the dice on a risky, go-for-broke, point-of-no-return surgery with potentially devastating consequences. Sometimes, it works.
