Trivia: The character of Lexie Grey eats so much in this episode as a joke because the actress who portrays her, Chyler Leigh, was pregnant at the time.
Meredith (opening voiceover): Defeat isn't an option. Not for surgeons. We don't back away from the table till the last breaths long gone. Terminal's a challenge. Life threatening's what gets us out of bed in the morning. We're not easily intimidated. We don't flinch, we don't back down, and we certainly don't surrender. Not at work anyway.
Arizona: Meeting Callie's dad was so not on the agenda for today. I mean, he seems like the kinda man who needs a little preperation before meeting his daughter's girlfriend. (laughs) You should've seen the look on his face, when I--
Bailey: Can you stop doing 'the thing'?
Arizona: What thing?
Bailey: The tellin' me your business thing. It's my day off. I'm just here to watch you do the fundoplication.
Arizona: You know what? I checked your schedule, you worked a 90 hour week, you should be at home sleeping or playing with your kid.
Bailey: Okay, you could stop doing that thing, too.
Arizona: It's just peds can be tough. And it can be hard on a family.
Bailey: Not mine. (scoffs) My husband is very supportive. He is... He can't wait for me to start my fellowship.
Arizona: He doesn't know, does he?
George: I need to order a psych consult for Mr. Malloy. He said he was walking when the car hit him, but the pattern of his injuries aren't consistant with it. Plus, he's acting a little agitated.
Alex: Maybe because he was just hit by a car or 'cause he has you as a doctor. Either way, you need to discharge him because we have a lot more patients, with worse injuries.

Alex: Fine. Get your consult. But if someone in that waiting room dies because we don't have a bed, that's on you.
Owen: I don't feel anything
Dr. Wyatt: Nothing? No anger? Happiness? Unhappiness? Guilt? Survivor's guilt? You know it's very common with veterans.
Owen: It's not about my platoon.
Dr. Wyatt: You have shoved your feelings aside for so long. I'm asking you to claim them. And Owen... this is about your platoon.
Owen: It's about the fact that I tried to choke my girlfriend to death. What? Are you saying the way I feel about my platoon and the way I feel about what happened with Cristina are the same? They're not the same.
Dr. Wyatt: Well, how will you know if you can't name those feelings?
Owen: It's not what it's... It's... I don't know.
Meredith (closing voiceover): To do our jobs we have to believe defeat is not an option. That no matter how sick our patients get, there's hope for them. But, even when our hopes give way to reality and we finally have to surrender to the truth, it just means we've lost today battle. Not tomorrows war. Here's the thing about surrender, once you do it, actually give in, you forget why you were even fighting in the first place.
