Pablo sees Jo and immediately has a crush on her. He finds out Myers and Jo are seeing each other and isn’t happy about it. ..Read the full recap
Meredith: (opening voiceover) Work keeps our minds active. It keeps us out of trouble. When we're not working, our hands are idle, and the devil will find work for idle hands to do. And when you have an idle mind, well, that's the devil's playground, too.
Meredith: (about her baby) Her eyesight is developing this week. Unless it's not. Unless she's blind.
Derek: She's not blind. Or he's not. Or if he or she is blind, that's fine. Blind is fine.
Meredith: What do we call it, it?
Derek: One of us can say he, one of us can say she, and we're covered.
Meredith: Well, no, because then it's gonna be born thinking one of us is always wrong. Well, maybe it can't hear anyway. Maybe it's deaf.
Derek: Deaf is fine. Helen Keller went to Harvard, Meredith.
Meredith: Okay, well, what if it's not fine? What if it's absorbed a twin body? Two heads, extra arms--
Meredith: I'm just saying, if anyone's gonna have a baby with two heads and three arms and eleven toes, it's gonna be me.
Derek: Would you just go to sleep? Please. Slee
Meredith: Ugh. Stop kicking in there. I mean, what are you, choking on your cord or something? Cristina, please talk to it. He or she.
Meredith: The baby.
Meredith: The sound of my voice only makes it kick harder. For some reason, Derek can calm it down. Maybe you can, too.
Cristina: You know, I'll talk to it when I see it. When she gets her first period. I'll take that off your plate. Or if it has a penis, I'll tell him not to think with it.
Derek: How's the baby, still kicking?
Meredith: Quiet now. Probably dead.
Derek: Oh, Meredith, stop.
Meredith: Well, I'm just kidding. Mostly.
Derek: Really, I need you to stop.
Meredith: Bad things happen, and it just makes me feel better to be prepared when they do.
Derek: But you don't know how things are gonna turn out.
Meredith: Right. Exactly what I'm saying.
Miranda: Avery's too young, I said. He's too inexperienced, I said, he has no business running this hospital.
Jackson: Where are you going with this?
Miranda: I was wrong, is where I'm going. You all made a smart decision today. I'm not gonna disappoint you. Thank you! (walks away happily)
Meredith: (closing voiceover) At first, idleness can seem like a welcome distraction the troublemaking and the fun. Everyone needs some idle time to focus on something other than work. Even if it means focusing on something that's a little bit scary. Stepping back from work is the only way to get perspective. And it's only after we have everything in perspective that we remember where our hands truly belong.
