Grey's Anatomy s14e04 Episode Script

Ain't That a Kick in the Head

1 Previously on "Grey's Anatomy" AMELIA: There's a scientific study that if you stand like this in superhero pose, you will perform measurably better.
Owen, will you marry me? - Where are we running? - Ahh! Um, kids.
- Five.
- Whoa.
Five?! Hey, you got a minute to talk? AMELIA: Owen, there's nothing to talk about.
I don't want to have a baby! Is she okay? Is she sober? Just tell me that.
STEPHANIE: She's safe.
Tell her to come home.
[BREATHES DEEPLY] [RAZOR BUZZES] AMELIA: There are 100 billion neurons in the human brain making and remaking connections Today is sweet like honey - Sugar in my step - That's it? With a pocket full of sunny Kinda makes you look fierce.
Summer in my soul, and the birds are sounding lovely Are you sure you don't want me to call your mom? No.
She didn't come for my wedding.
She doesn't get to come for my tumor.
We got the feeling It's helping us with math [DOOR CLOSES] remembering our keys, our dad's voice working hard all the time.
From my head down to my toes We got the feeling, ooh Got the feeling Ooh Got the feeling, got the feeling Got, got the feeling, whoa Got the feeling, got, got the feeling So when the brain is faulty, it's a big rewiring job.
And there's no margin for error.
KORACICK: I'll go in through a subfrontal craniotomy, real clean, small incision in the dura, and then scoop the tumor out.
I don't like the edema around the tumor, but I got to dance with the girl who brought me, so [CHUCKLES] I imagine you have questions.
Yeah, uh, how many of these have you done? So, so many.
And what's the recovery time? I took a 13-centimeter tumor out of a cop in roughly the same place.
He was walking day one, talking day three, back at work end of the week, so Thank you, Tom.
Yeah.
See you at the after party.
[TELEPHONE RINGS] He seems arrogant enough.
He's a showboat.
And he works best under pressure, so, DeLuca, ask him questions during surgery, make him show off.
- And if I make it through - When you make it through.
- Early ambulation protocol.
- Thank you.
Okay.
Meredith, if I die You are not going to die.
But if I do, you call my mom.
I'm sorry, but she likes you.
And, you, take my room.
It is way better.
I kind of scammed you on that.
- Stop it.
- No, she's right.
It's way better.
Owen, if I'm gorked, do not overthink it, do not visit me.
Just park me somewhere and go on with your life.
Amelia, please cut it out.
And if I need unplugging, April has been named my power of attorney.
[CHUCKLES] W-Was I supposed to say no? She likes me.
She will be there for you.
But we're not so close that she'll let emotion dictate her decision.
I don't know what's me and what's tumor talking, but, um [SHAKILY] In this moment, I love you people tremendously.
KORACICK: [SOFTLY] I love this.
[NORMAL VOICE] Are there really studies on this? Yep.
Yeah.
When you're going into surgery, you worry you won't wake up.
But with brain surgery, you worry you will wake up but you won't be there when you do.
- [ELEVATOR BELL DINGS] - [SIGHS] The first intern interview is already here? Yes.
45 minutes early.
We know they all have the grades.
We just need to see if they're - Functional human beings.
- [LAUGHS] You've worked very hard for this.
You deserve this.
And even though you overdosed your Aunt Joan on her blood-pressure medication, you are awesome because y-you can recite every artery in the body alphabetically.
[INHALES SHARPLY] Abdominal aorta, alveolar anterior, alveolar inferior, alveolar superior I think we're finished here.
- [CHUCKLING] Next.
- anterior cecal.
MEGAN: If you say a number I don't like, I'm going to hit you with this magazine.
- Still over 100.
- Barely a fever.
- A fever's a fever.
- It's minor.
It's not like I'm having brain surgery or something.
[SCOFFS] She avoided you during my surgery.
You're avoiding her now.
I suddenly understand your marriage completely.
Amelia has a lot of support.
And with Riggs pulling what he's pulled on you I turned down his proposal.
I told him I didn't want him.
He had every right and every reason to pack his bags and walk away.
I mean, a goodbye might've been nice, but Hmm.
APRIL: Please don't make me have to unplug her.
Please don't make me have to unplug her.
[INHALES SHARPLY] Lord, please make her be okay.
- ["FUN, FUN, FUN" PLAYS] - Please let her be okay.
Please don't make me have to unplug her.
KORACICK: And she'll have fun, fun, fun Till her daddy takes the T-bird away Fun, fun, fun till her daddy takes the T-bird away Any issues with the edema? Well, the girls can't stand her 'Cause she walks, talks, and drives like an ace now Also wondering if you're all the way around the dura.
She makes the Indy 500 Look like a Roman chariot race, now Also, why did you choose this particular music? DeLuca, sing along or shut up.
But she leads them on a wild-goose chase now Goose chase now, you drive like an ace And she'll have fun, fun, fun Till her daddy takes the T-bird away Fun, fun, fun till her daddy takes I still can't believe That masturbation diagnosed a brain tumor? Yeah.
God works in such mysterious ways.
[CHUCKLES] The Beach Boys seems like an odd choice.
Like, inappropriate.
No, Riggs leaving Megan that's inappropriate.
I never liked Riggs in the first place.
And I'm an excellent judge of character.
Right, because you have zero history with crazy girlfriends.
My judgment has improved with age.
Well, you knew all along that your dad Was gettin' wise to you now You shouldn't have lied And since he took your set of keys, you were thinking That your fun is all through now - Why did he stop singing? - He stopped singing.
But you can come along with me This is the crucial part.
He has to cut the last vessel.
And sometimes it's a feeder to the [SNIP] - And we'll have fun, fun, fun - [GASPS] - What was that? - What happened? That was the vessel en passant.
It looked like it was going into the meningioma, but in fact it was going straight through to the brain.
He didn't have a choice.
It's okay.
- Is it? - It is? It's probably fine.
It could be really bad.
- I'm sure it's fine.
- Hmm.
Fun, fun now that Daddy took the T-bird away Whoo, whoo-ooh-ooh-ooh Fun, fun now that Daddy took the T-bird away MEREDITH: I'm saying you clipped the vessel.
KORACICK: The tissue went a little dusky.
It doesn't mean that that OWEN: She's 11 hours post-op.
MAGGIE: Shouldn't she be awake by now? I'm not concerned yet.
With that amount of bleeding, - recovery time can be - She's awake.
Thank, God.
Thank you, God! [INHALES SHARPLY] MEREDITH: Amelia, how do you feel? AMELIA: I'm okay.
How'd it go? - Amelia, can you hear me? - [FINGERS SNAPPING] Yes.
I'm right here.
OWEN: Is she awake? MAGGIE: Or did she just open her eyes? Amelia? They can't hear me.
- I don't think she's - Oh, my God! L-Listen.
Everybody's recovery time is different.
Let's not panic.
Oh, crap.
Am I gorked? It's okay.
She's okay.
Oh, crap! [AIR HISSING, MONITORS BEEPING] - Hey.
- Hmm! - Sorry.
- Hey.
There's no change.
But, uh, it's 5:30 in case you want - to get a shower or something.
- Okay.
Thanks.
Ooh.
Okay.
I'm gonna go take a shower, okay? I'll be back soon.
Okay.
It's sweet you slept here.
What? I think she just squeezed my hand.
Amelia, did you just squeeze my hand? Ow.
Stop talking.
My head hurts, Meredith.
I'm trying to sleep.
- Maybe not.
- [COUGHS] Oh, my God.
She's breathing over the tube.
- Let's get her extubated.
- Okay.
This is good! This is good.
Ow.
God.
So much talking.
I know that I'm younger than most of your applicants, so to answer some questions you may have, I went to high school at 12, I went to college at 14, I went to medical school at 16, and I lost my virginity at 18.
You may not have asked that last one.
Have to keep this on in case Mass Gen calls.
They're my number one.
But you guys are a solid number two.
[CELLPHONE CHIMES] You know what, though? I think after being here, I'm impressed.
Grey-Sloan is moving up.
Level one trauma.
The weather's amazing.
[INDISTINCT CHATTER] [TELEPHONE RINGS] RICHARD: Ahh.
How was the flight? Fine.
- Ah.
And the service? - It was tasteful.
It was a bunch of kiss-asses sniffing around for money, telling stories about how Harper Avery was nice and decent and [SCOFFS] respected women.
All right, so, we'll have a family supper and do our own thing and talk about the real Harper Avery.
Right now I need to change.
Want to help me? KORACICK: Catherine Avery? - Thomas Koracick?! - [BOTH LAUGH] Ohh! How is it that I'm aging and you aren't? - Oh, shut up.
- [CLEARS THROAT] Uh, you've met my husband, Richard Webber.
- Oh! - And this my son, Jackson.
- Oh! H-How old is he? - Hey.
- Why? - I want to make sure he's not mine.
- You are just awful.
- [CHUCKLES] Uh, how's, uh, Shepherd? She's, uh, responsive, not yet verbal.
It's early.
We should catch up.
[CHUCKLES] Anything you want to tell me? I prefer to let you wonder, keep the mystery alive.
RICHARD: Mm-hmm.
Mmm.
[LAUGHS] Ooh! Look at Dr.
Fancypants! Trying to lure in that big facelift money? I was at a funeral.
I am a terrible person.
You look very somber.
How much money did he leave you? That's not an appropriate question.
Well, I just want to know exactly.
I mean, do they just back up a truckload of silver spoons? [CHUCKLES] It's a fleet of limos, not a truck.
Um, you, uh, paged me? What's up? [SIGHS] Bad timing.
Never mind.
What do you mean? Bad timing for what? What? I'm publishing Megan Hunt's surgery, and it might get consideration for a Harper Avery.
So you want to take my name off it.
No, I understand You can't win a Harper Avery if the article says "Jackson Avery.
" I mean, I know the timing of the ask is unfortunate, but the deadline is in a few days.
And I really am sorry for your loss.
- Take my name off, then.
- Yeah? Go for it.
Yeah, just be grateful that your mother didn't start up a foundation.
Yeah, that Alzheimer's really put a wrench in her charitable giving, but I owe you one.
- Thanks.
- Yes, you do.
Here we go.
- [GROANS] Just a little bit more.
[YELLS] Please stop.
[SOBS] No! It hurts! [YELLS] DeLuca, what the hell are you doing?! It's early ambulation.
Dr.
Shepherd does it with all her patients.
This patient is post-op day one.
- Put her back in that bed.
- She told me to do this.
I change my mind.
I change my mind.
No.
The giant tumor that was pressing on her frontal lobe told you to do it.
It also made me promise not to give her any opioids, which is so incredibly stupid.
Put her back in this bed now! Agreed.
DeLuca, I agree.
- Sir, she made me promise.
- Damn it! [CHUCKLES] Hey.
You sleeping with her? - What? - What?! You heard me.
You getting some extra office hours in with Shepherd? No! Okay? Just I-It's her protocol.
And her patients have a high recovery rate higher than yours, which she wanted me to say to you, because she knew you wouldn't like this.
[AMELIA GROANS] I am such an ass.
If her intracranial pressure increases, it's on you.
Okay, Dr.
Shepherd.
You got this, okay? Just to the chair.
I mean, we could.
It's probably effective, but I'm [SCREAMS] [EXHALES SHARPLY] I just want to see my kid.
I'll take oral antibiotics.
It's just a low-grade fever.
No.
Unfortunately, it's more than that.
Your white count is elevated.
- There's some erythema.
- [SIGHS] We're gonna need to do three days IV of cefazolin.
Three days? - I'm sorry.
- [GROANS] [EXHALES DEEPLY] Have you heard from Nathan? - No.
Have you? - No.
For what it's worth, I told him you were the real deal.
I sent him to you.
And I sent him to you.
Pretty firmly.
[LAUGHS] I think we broke his brain.
[BOTH LAUGH] [WOMAN ON P.
A.
SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY] Hey, Wilson, Megan's got cellulitis, so let's start her on one gram "Q," 8 of cefazolin, and increase her fluids please.
W-W-Wait.
This won't affect your article, will it? No.
I-I'm only asking because I'm worried about you and her and medicine.
Yes, Wilson I'm putting your name on the article.
[LAUGHING] Really? Oh, my God.
Okay, thank you.
Thank you.
[CLEARS THROAT] Oh, and the journal is asking for photos of us to put with the article, so if you have one you like, just send it to me.
Okay.
In, out, out, out Ow, ow.
Amelia, the body can't heal as quickly if it's experiencing so much pain.
[BREATHES HEAVILY, MOANS] AA has no opinion on drugs for pain relief as long as you follow the doctor's orders.
Opioids are my drug of choice.
What if they told you you could have "just a drink or two" if the doctor says it's okay? You're sure you don't want to reconsider? Please stop.
I didn't think so.
But I had to ask.
[MONITOR BEEPING] [SOBS] I used to scream at her to shut up all the time in my head.
No, no.
I heard you a couple times.
I mean, now I wish she would just say anything.
How is she? Is she talking? - No.
- Did you call her mom yet? - Did you unplug her yet? - [LAUGHTER] That's not funny.
At all.
I mean, seriously, so, she left a thriving practice and a fiancé in L.
A.
to come and live with her brother - who she resented.
- Yeah? That was the tumor.
Wow.
How did we miss this? Man, I just wish I had a tumor to blame my stupid crap on.
- No.
Guys! - [LAUGHTER] - "DeLuca, I'm sorry I hit you.
Tumor.
" - [LAUGHTER] - This is not cool.
- Riggs.
Tumor.
- Minnick.
- Oh, tumor.
No! Do not encourage them.
What? You have to laugh, April.
I mean, in situations like this, you have to laugh.
No.
She trusted me with her life.
- ALL: Tumor! - [LAUGHING] Stop! [CELLPHONE RINGS] Speak of the devil.
- My tumor's calling.
- Oh, are you gonna answer? No.
Once that's diagnosed, you cut it right out.
Hey, Riggs panicked.
People panic.
- Oh, don't defend him.
- [CELLPHONE CHIMES] - It's DeLuca.
- Amelia's talking! - She's talking.
- Really?! - She's talking? - Sort of.
[AMELIA SPEAKING FRENCH] It's weird, right? [SPEAKS FRENCH] - It's French.
- She speaks French? - [SPEAKS FRENCH] - I speak French.
She speaks German.
- What is she saying? - [SPEAKS FRENCH] Sorry.
She said she needs a glass of water.
Oh.
You know, all the Shepherd children went to French preschool.
And it's still in her brain somewhere? - Merci.
- I've seen this before.
It reverses on its own, but this is It's still good.
It's progress.
Amelia.
[SPEAKS FRENCH] [SPEAKING FRENCH] What'd she say? Uh, I asked her if she could speak in English, and she said, "Didn't even know I could speak French.
" [CHUCKLES SOFTLY] Weaknesses? Uh, hmm.
I hate all my peers.
All of them.
Yeah, med school is filled with legacy kids who expect everything easy.
I had to work my ass off for everything that I have.
I saw what I wanted, I took dead aim, and I earned it.
But if that attitude is a problem, you definitely shouldn't hire me.
You'll get a major signal boost from me.
When I started med school, I had 47 followers on Instagram.
That number's over 10,000 now.
People are really invested in my journey.
And when I'm here, that'll become our journey.
Oh! Which reminds me Can we get a Snap? [PHONE UNLOCKS] - One - [CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKS] [INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] WOMAN ON P.
A.
: Dr.
Steve Irvan to the O.
R.
Dr.
Steve Irvan to the O.
R.
[INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS] [TELEPHONE RINGS] [SNORING] [CHUCKLES] You're overreacting.
I-I have to get this out! No! Megan, you're in the middle of an antibiotic treatment.
You can't just Megan, stop! - [RAPID BEEPING] - What's happening? Farouk's at the hospital in Baghdad, and I can't get him on the phone, and my C.
O.
can't tell me what's going on.
- They said he was anemic.
- He's not anemic.
He eats dates every day, which is plenty of iron.
Look.
I have to go.
You can just write me a prescription for the rest, and I'll fill it on the way to the airport.
Megan, you're bleeding.
Give me your arm.
And you have an infection, and you know what that means.
I'll sign an A.
M.
A.
form, okay?! When I was adopting my daughter, there was a moment where I thought they were gonna take her from me, so I stole her.
I kidnapped my own daughter because I felt exactly the way you feel right now.
All I did was make everything worse.
I made it worse for her, and I made it worse for me.
So let's just take a moment, okay? [BREATHING SHARPLY] You can't help him if you're dead.
[SIREN WAILING] Hey.
You okay? [SIGHS] I don't have Harriet tonight.
I have trouble going home when I don't have Harriet.
[EXHALES DEEPLY] I remember that.
[CHAIR WHEELS ROLL] It's really hard.
At first.
At first? Yeah.
Eventually you have a new normal.
You know, eventually, you You miss her on the nights that you don't have her, but you know that she's somewhere safe and loved, and the ache is just less.
And then maybe some new grown-up fun - comes into your life.
- [SCOFFS] And maybe there's some joy in that.
I don't want a new normal.
[SIGHS] Don't you have hot Italian sex waiting for you? [EXHALES DEEPLY] I do.
- [LAUGHS] You do.
- Mm-hmm.
[CHUCKLES] Hey.
How is she? The same.
[EXHALES SHARPLY] Meredith, what do you think? I mean, how bad is this long term? Do you think we'll get her back? [CELLPHONE VIBRATES] I wish I knew.
AMELIA: [SLEEPILY] Would you keep it down? - Sorry.
- That was English! - Wait.
- She spoke English.
When was I not? How are you? How do you feel? I'm okay.
I'm good.
Do you know what happened? Do you know where you are? I had a surgery.
I had a brain tumor.
- Call Koracick.
- Mm-hmm.
Ugh.
No.
Koracick is such a blowhard.
- [CHUCKLES] - This is good! You should call Derek.
What? AMELIA: I mean, I know that Derek is dead.
I just forget he was dead.
But then the second that you tell me, it's all there.
It's like I have this jigsaw puzzle, but I can't put the pieces in until you give them to me.
What if I can't be a surgeon anymore? What if I get into surgery and I can't find my way back out? She's panicking.
Amelia, work the problem.
What's the cause of your memory loss? It's, uh, retrograde amnesia.
From? From damage to the temporal lobe.
But you were in the frontal.
There could be interruption of blood flow, ischemia-reperfusion injury, edema.
It's likely temporary.
W Say that again.
It might be temporary.
Yes.
It will be.
You know what this is.
You don't have to be afraid of it.
You will be a surgeon again.
You're too good not to.
So am I.
Now, I need you to simmer down so I can get these scans, okay? - Okay.
- Thank you.
She was hot for teacher back in the day.
She tell you about me? [CELLPHONE RINGING] [CELLPHONE SLIDES] - [CELLPHONE UNLOCKS] - Stop calling me.
If you couldn't think of anything to say before you left, there certainly isn't anything to talk about now.
NATHAN: Hello, Dr.
Grey.
I'm so glad I was finally able to reach you.
Putting you on speakerphone, okay? Okay.
I'm here at the embassy in Baghdad, and the officials have some questions they need answered by Farouk Shami's doctor regarding his beta-thalassemia and the clinical trial you're running.
So we can secure his medical travel visa, okay? Y-Yes, of course, Dr.
Riggs.
I'm sorry I didn't call you back sooner.
DR.
ALAZARI: Hello, Dr.
Grey.
I'm Dr.
Alazari, - the U.
S.
Embassy Panel Physician.
- Of course.
In the sample you received, how was his MCV? [MOUSE CLICKING] Uh, low 68.
Ferritin level? Uh, 111, but the sample could've decayed during transport.
Were there any Heinz bodies on the peripheral blood smear? Um, I'm sorry.
I'm having trouble hearing you.
- Let me move to a better spot.
- [KEYS CLACKING] Dr.
Grey, I said, "Were there any Heinz bodies " Yes.
There were Heinz bodies on the blood smear.
Thank you, Doctor.
We will let you know if we have any further questions.
Okay.
Great.
Thanks.
Dr.
Riggs? [STATIC] Hello? NATHAN: I'm alone now.
Why didn't you tell me you were gonna do this?! Why didn't you pick up your phone?! I've been calling you for days! Why didn't you call someone else?! Because they are rule followers, Meredith, and you're the one that told me to make the grand gesture.
I'm sorry.
When you left, I just I didn't know.
Do you think it worked? I don't know.
Look.
If we're back in Seattle BY 3:00 tomorrow, then it worked.
Okay.
So what can I do now? Just don't tell Megan about this, okay? Not until I know for sure what's gonna happen.
- Pick up your phone next time! - [CLICK] [CELLPHONE LOCKS] [SOFTLY] I just want to help people, and I think that doctors can save lives and change the world and eradicate diseases.
I-I'm sorry.
Um, can you just speak up a little bit? Um, I just want to help people, and I think that doctors can change the world, help save lives, and eradicate disease.
[CHUCKLES, SIGHS] [SIGHS] There was a problem, and the problem has been addressed.
Sports band! [CHUCKLES] I tried contacts, but they required me to touch my eyeball with my finger, so no.
CATHERINE: Hello, there! Hi.
- Maggie? - [CHUCKLES] Ohh! I wasn't expecting you.
Well, you know, I saw her on the way out, and I I thought we could set another place.
Uh-huh.
[CHUCKLES] - Oh.
Hey.
- Hey.
That looks amazing.
Yes.
Well, welcome.
Welcome.
Richard, could you help me in the kitchen for a moment, please? - Excuse me.
- [CLAPS HANDS] [CHUCKLES] I said family supper.
And Maggie's not family? Oh, please.
I didn't mean that.
It's just [SIGHS] Well, you could've at least have called.
Well, I like to keep a sense of mystery.
Oh, please.
Are we talking about Thomas Koracick now? Oh, we don't have to talk about anything.
Beautiful house.
Oh, you've never been? I know.
Sometimes I think he worries - about pushing the dad angle.
- Hmm.
He's a good guy Richard.
Very.
So is your mom.
They are good people.
Good folks.
You want some wine? I would like a gallon of it.
I've been on this planet for six decades.
There have been penises in my life that are not attached to you.
So stop trying to change the subject.
You haven't told me what the subject is.
I wanted to talk to Jackson tonight alone, just us.
Well, what about? The boy's grandfather just passed! I understand that! [SIGHS] I'm sorry about all this.
Oh, it's fine, it's fine.
My parents had loud discussions.
CATHERINE: It's complicated! I just I need to talk to Jackson about his inheritance! You know what? I'm just gonna Yeah.
RICHARD: How complicated is it?! CATHERINE: A quarter of a billion dollars! That's how! Who's hungry? [CHUCKLES] [SILVERWARE CLINKING] Everything tastes really wonderful.
It's so wonderful.
Tell me again why they can't just give the money to the foundation.
He left plenty to the foundation.
That was his gift to you.
That's not a gift, Mom.
It's an economy.
It's how he showed his love.
Yeah, well, I don't want it.
You know what I do want? I want a fair chance to actually win his damn award.
- Jackson.
- I know.
Look, I'm not complaining about it.
I just Yes, you are.
And I will not abide it.
I'm not complaining.
It's just It's a lot! You think having a lot of money is tough? Try not having it some time.
No, I get it.
I mean, I I, uh I went to college on a full ride when I was 15, which sounds awesome, but I had no friends and I cried all the time, and it was awful.
I mean, I don't know what it's like to have Beyoncé money, but I do know that research shows that having too many choices is a leading cause of stress.
And now Jackson can literally choose to do anything for the rest of his life.
You could buy a vineyard and never work again.
Or you could buy a hospital and work until the day you die.
Even if you give it away, you have to decide who gets it and who doesn't.
You could buy an island.
Or you could buy two islands and make them fight each other.
I mean, I get that you're not complaining.
But it is a problem.
It is stressful.
Still, it's a good problem to have, right? [CHUCKLES] Is there more wine? [SLURPS] - You know where you are? - I'm at work.
Do you know who the president is? - I wish I didn't.
- Very good.
Dr.
Shepherd, your post-op scans are pristine.
I'm clearing you to go home.
I'll see you in a few days for a follow-up, hmm? It's been a pleasure being treated by me.
Yay! This is incredible! I want to see my scans.
All of them.
Amelia, he said you're fine.
You're cleared to go home.
Something's wrong.
Something's missing.
Um, please get my scans.
Air Force, with distinction, two tours in Iraq in cybersecurity.
Thank you for that.
And you left to go into medicine.
One day I caught some shrapnel, and I woke up on a cot in a CSH tent.
I watched 3 combat surgeons save 37 soldiers in 6 hours.
I counted.
I kept score.
I thought, "That's not a bad way to spend your time.
" Also, I watched a lot of "M.
A.
S.
H.
" when I was a kid, and I had a real thing for Hawkeye Pierce.
Me too! [CHUCKLES] I read all about the fire.
And the resident who set it? Incredible.
So smart, so brave.
Just fierce, you know? She's officially my new hero.
And I'm so excited to see all the changes you make when you rebuild.
We already rebuilt.
Right! No.
Of course you did.
It's gorgeous! Who's your designer? MEREDITH: Come on, Nathan.
Come on, Nathan.
Dr.
Grey, uh, if it's all right, um, I need you to take my name off the paper.
Why? It's okay.
I know that Alex told you about him.
[GASPS] Oh, Wilson, when I asked you for that picture, I wasn't even thinking.
It's not your job to think about it.
- It's okay.

Did Koracick dictate I think I figured out what you're looking for.
It was this.
This is what's missing.
I think you've been waiting for the other shoe to drop, for something to go wrong.

Let's do that again soon.
- Have a good night, then.
- Yeah.

So why'd you leave me in the dark? You're my wife, okay? In sickness and in health.
Come home.

So we have to be very careful with our connections.
Thank you.
And when you told me what I wanna hear [EXHALES SHARPLY] Don't just say nothing, say nothing They take time, care, and attention.
