Amelia Shepherd: Owen, what you're doing is beautiful. You're fostering him. You're... You're being there for him when nobody else is.
Alex Karev: Ha! My foster parents sucked. No, for real. They just stuck me in a room with some other kids and then collected a check. Except for one. There was one guy. He worked nights in a warehouse. Come home, dead tired at the crack of dawn, and go straight to bed. But then, an hour later, he'd wake up, just so he could eat cereal with me and tell me, you know, "Have a good day," before I went to school. Then he'd go back to sleep. Wasn't much, but, you know, he just gave a crap, you know? He gave a crap, and you, my friend, you are giving so many craps right now. This man's got it made.
Meredith Grey: I saved a transplant surgeon today. He was smart and funny. Hot.
Alex Karev: And, so, what? He's married?
Meredith Grey: Nope.
Alex Karev: Gay? Lives in a foreign country?
Meredith Grey: Minnesota.
Alex Karev: Same difference. So what's the problem?
Meredith Grey: No problem. He was just my patient.
Alex Karev: So he's smart, funny, and hot, and...
Meredith Grey: My patient. I really like the way my life is now. I just... He made me feel something that I haven't felt since Derek.
Alex Karev: But... you're his doctor. Is it really the worst thing in the world, knowing it's out there if you want it?
Meredith Grey: No, it's not the worst thing.
Amelia Shepherd: Her brain scan is clear. And it's a sexy brain. She's 66?
Jo Wilson: Oh, well, if you believe her, then she's 166 'cause she's a time-traveler.
Maggie Pierce: Time travel? Like wormholes?
Miranda Bailey: Exactly!
Alex Karev: What are we looking at here?
Jo Wilson: Oh, wait. "Wormhole"... that's a great name for your device! Bailey is looking for names for her... colon thingy.
Miranda Bailey: No, I'm not.
Alex Karev: "Ass Gasket"... that's a good one.
Amelia Shepherd: God, if I could go back in time.
Miranda Bailey: No, you can't. Time doesn't go backwards.
Alex Karev (about Koracick): Send him home.
Amelia Shepherd: We didn't make it into the contest. We have no funding. As much as you want to help Kimmie, you can't help me with the physics of high-energy ultrasound. Koracick may be a tool, but he is the kind of tool that we need right now. See how I did that? Tool/tool?
Alex Karev: He doesn't go anywhere near Kimmie. He doesn't even get to meet her.
Amelia Shepherd: Oh, God, no. Kimmie's got enough problems.
Alex Karev: I just... I-I didn't think you'd be so excited to... to consider leaving Seattle.
Jo Wilson: Because I can! Because for the first time, I can do exactly what I want to do. I have freedom now, I have opportunities that I didn't have before because I was afraid that Paul was gonna come find me. You know what, I can apply anywhere now. I don't have to hide in Seattle. I thought that you, of all people, would get that.
Alex Karev: Look, I'm happy Paul's gone, and I'm happy you're free. I just didn't realize he was the only one keeping you here.
