Narration: The opening and closing voiceovers are done by Dr. Miranda Bailey instead of by Dr. Meredith Grey.
Bailey: (opening voiceover) Infections are like sleeping monsters. You can't see them. You can't feel them. But you must do everything in your power to contain them. Because when the monsters wake up they're out of control.
Jo: Promise me you'll be nice.
Alex: These guys are trying to take down Bailey. They don't deserve nice.
Jo: No, not to the C.D.C. to Jason.
Alex: I'm nice to Jason.
Jo: Two minutes ago, you said, "Hey, I have a surgery today with your d-bag boyfriend."
Alex: Yeah, but I said it with a smile. (Jo stares at him) Fine. I won't call the guy a d-bag. At least not to his face, anyway.
Jo: I'm moving in with him. So what do you think?
Alex: I think it's great.
Alex: No. I think the guy is a douche bag who you've known for about two minutes, and that makes you an idiot for moving in with him.
Alex: Hey, Myers set up for the C-section in the cath lab. We need to run through the steps of the procedure.
Cristina: Look at you. "Myers." You say it like he isn't nailing your girlfriend.
Alex: She's not my girlfriend.
Cristina: Whatever. You love her.
Alex: She's my friend.
Cristina: You sound stupid when you say that.
Alex: She's moving in with the guy. What am I supposed to do?
Cristina: Beat him up.
Alex: No. I'm gonna try to be nice to him and get along so I don't lose my friend.
Cristina: Or you could punch him and take back your girl.
Cristina: I'll be there in the room when fetus arrives.
Meredith: You will?
Cristina: Yeah. You're gonna want me there.
Cristina: You're gonna poop on the table, though. And I'm gonna have to see it, and then I can never unsee it.
Meredith: You know what's worse than you seeing me poop on the table?
Meredith: Me knowing you've seen me poop on the table.
Cristina: So you'll suffer more than me.
Cristina: Oh, okay. That makes me feel better.
Derek: What are you doing?
Meredith: Checking Bailey's post-ops.
Derek: I thought Richard was taking care of Bailey's patients.
Meredith: Just the infected guy, I took the rest.
Derek: You're pregnant, why take the risk?
Meredith: Because I'm looking out for Bailey.
Derek: And I'm trying to look out for you.
Meredith: This is why I need Cristina in the room.
Derek: What room?
Meredith: The delivery room.
Derek: Wait, what?
Bailey: (closing voiceover) All that time you spent convincing yourself the sleeping monster wasn't real it was gathering strength. The infection was spreading. The monster's awake now. And there's nothing you can do about it.
