Narration: There is no closing voiceover in this episode.
Meredith: (opening voiceover) Like I said, disappearances happen. Pains go phantom. Blood stops running and people...people fade away. There's more I have to say, so much more, but I disappeared.
Alex: I'd notice
Alex: If you went missing, I'd notice.
Meredith: Hey. Am I dead?
Denny: Damn right you are.
Meredith: Holy ...
Burke: The Chief is working on her.
Derek: He threw me out.
Burke: What do you need?
Derek: I need you to go in there.
Burke: What is your problem?
Cristina: You know everyone’s back. Everyone’s back except her. And I listen to her. Everyday, about her McLove life, her McDreamy, her McCrap. And the one day, the one day I have a thing she disappears.
Burke: Meredith, this is about Meredith.
Cristina: She doesn’t know yet.
Cristina: She’s my person.
Burke: Right. And if Meredith doesn’t approve, then what?
Cristina: This, this is not about getting her approval, it's about...
Cristina: Telling her makes it, makes it ... If I murdered someone she’s the person I’d call to help me drag the corpse across the living room floor.
Burke: Okay, now, you’re likening someone here to a corpse. I’m done.
Cristina: She’s my person.
George: Can I see his face?
Callie: I'm in the middle of surgery.
George: I know. Is this boy your patient? I know the picture's half smeared and hard to see but ... Please tell me it's him. Tell me he has been right here, under my nose, open on your table all day, and not drifting along the bottom of the ocean. Please tell me that.
Callie: Hold the photo under the light so I can get a better look. Oh yeah, oh yeah, that's my kid. I could spot those goofy ears anywhere.
George: Callie O'Malley. I can't kiss you right now because you're scrubbed in, but tonight, when you get home, I am going to --
Callie: All right, people let's focus. George, I'm working here. I'm working, so, yeah, bye.
Bailey: What do we got?
Paramedic: Jane Doe. She's hypothermic and dropping.
Derek: She's not a Jane Doe. It's Meredith Grey. It's Meredith.
Bailey: Derek! Derek! How long has she been down?
Derek: I don't know. She's alive. She's alive.
When Alex is heading to the morgue and meets George on the stairs, Alex is heading upstairs. However morgues are usually in the basements of hospitals, and a short time later Alex says, "You didn't check down here right?"
When Meredith is brought to the trauma room, Derek is forced to leave. When he exits, Bailey says "Ok, she has a new 18-gauge in her left A.C. Push 1 of EPI through it". Then we see one of the nurses, pushing something through a line in the right side of Meredith's body. It should be one her left side.
When the interns find out what happened to Meredith, on Cristina's left you can see her watch when she lifts her arms towards her head. In the scene after Izzie's speech, she doesn't have it. Then, when Izzie comes to hug her, the watch is part of her outfit again.
