Meredith (opening voiceover): Communication. It's the first thing we really learn in life. Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking the harder it becomes to know what to say. Or how to ask for what we really need.
Cristina: So hey, after rounds, we have something to show you.
Izzie: Mere? Meredith? Can you hear us?
Cristina: She's not deaf.
Izzie: Well, she looks weird.
Cristina: Well, what do you expect? She's gone mental.
Izzie: Meredith have you gone mental?
Meredith: I have not gone mental.
Cristina: See? She's fine.
Meredith: (to Derek) What are you looking at!?
Alex: For a kiss to be really good, you want it to mean something. You want it to be with someone you can't get out of your head, so that when your lips finally touch, you feel it everywhere. A kiss so hot and so deep, you never want to come up for air. You can't cheat your first kiss, Nicole. Trust me you don't want to,'cause when you find that right person, the first kiss...it's everything.
Derek: You know, when you said you found a lunch spot with a view I knew I should have taken you literally.
Addison: I found it in the Best of Seattle guide. It's hardly brown bagging on top of the Empire State Building, but they do have these cute little view finders.
Derek: You always find something to complain about.
Addison: Okay, is there anything that you like about me anymore? Because if there is I really need to know.
Derek: Well, I like that you like cute little view finders in every city that you live in.
Addison: I don't live here yet. (pause) You gonna stop talking to Meredith?
Derek: I will.
Addison: When? Today? Tomorrow? Next week?
Derek: Maybe I'm not ready yet.
Addison: Are you ever gonna be ready, Derek?
Derek: What if I say "no"?
Addison: Then I'm not moving here.
Derek: Well, I guess we're at an impass then.
Bailey: Turn around, walk away.
Derek: From what?
Bailey: From my intern.
Derek: But I wasn't--
Bailey: Yes, you were. Look, look, look, you can't do this, you don't have the right. Not anymore.
Derek: I just wanna find out if she's okay.
Bailey: She's not. She's a human traffic accident and everybody is slowing down to look at the wreckage. She's doing the best she can with what she has left. Look I know you can't see this because you're in it. But you can't help her now, it'll only make it worse. Now walk away and leave her to mend.
Meredith: Okay where's his chart? (Cristina & Izzie look at each other) Don't tell me you don't have his chart. You steal a patient and you don't take the chart.
Cristina: That was your job.
Izzie: Yeah, I was on lookout.
Nicole: I don't like you.
Alex: Yeah, you do.
Alex: Motor mouth.
Nicole (laughs): Now that's just politically incorrect.
Meredith (closing voiceover): At the end of the day, there are some things you just can't help but talk about. Some things we just don't want to hear, and some things we say because we can't be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say, they're what you do. Some things you say because there's no other choice. Some things you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply speak for themselves.
