April Kepner: This was an upper-class neighborhood.
Jackson Avery: Yeah, those can be the worst neighborhoods for us. I grew up in those neighborhoods. Just being there is suspicious. Constantly stopped for "fitting the description." I remember I was walking, carrying these speakers for my friend, and these cops pulled up on me. Car screeches to a halt. They jump out, guns drawn, yelling at me to drop everything, slam me into the car, handcuff me. I mean, I was one block from my front door.
April Kepner: The Bible also says that your body's a temple and you should use it to glorify God.
David: I'm trying to, but temptation is everywhere.
April Kepner: Yeah, well, the Bible also says that God doesn't tempt us beyond our ability. He doesn't give us more than we can handle.
David: Look. "If your right hand causes you to sin, you cut it off."
April Kepner: David, when God created the world, he also created metaphors.
April Kepner: Webber just gave me the Grey Sloan Medical Innovation contest. The whole thing. Kind of freaking out.
Owen Hunt: Freaking out because you don't want it?
April Kepner: No. Why wouldn't I want it?
Owen Hunt: Uhh, I just think you'd want to compete is all.
April Kepner: Who wants to compete when you can be the judge?
Owen Hunt: Um, everyone?
April Kepner: Ev... He... He played me? Is that what you're saying? Dr. Webber played me?
Owen Hunt: I said nothing of the sort. But yes.
April Kepner (narration): In the course of one day, Job received four messages, each with separate news that his livestock, servants, and 10 children had all died. He continued to be a faithful servant. He still prays to God. He persevered. Job's faith was tested and he passed the test. And for his faith, God rewarded Job with twice what he had before. “Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?” That's what Jesus said on the cross before he died. "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?" Job asked the question, too. But he kept the faith. And what did he get for it? Replacement children. PTSD. Was it worth it to have been a faithful servant? Or would it have been better to just curse God's name from the beginning? Where was God throughout all of Job's suffering and pain? He was winning a bet with Satan. Makes you wonder where He is through all of the unfairness and inequity and cruelty in the world. Where is He now?
Richard Webber: I need a newspaper.
(Interns offer him their phones with news open on them)
Richard Webber: A damn newspaper!
(Kepner gets him real newspaper)
Richard Webber: Okay. It's a little pinkish. (urine bag) But the real test is... if you can read the paper through it, there's not a clinically significant amount of blood in the belly, okay?
April Kepner: That is... really cool.
Richard Webber: That's how we did it... in the Stone Age.
April Kepner: What are we using for ER monitors in the meantime?
Richard Webber: We use the old-fashioned kind. You are our monitors now, people. I want you to rotate through your patients. I want you to take and retake heart rate and BP. Keep track on paper and notify Kepner of changes.
April Kepner: All right, everyone. Back to the Stone Age.
Richard Webber: Disrespectful.
April Kepner: Sorry.
April Kepner: God, you're like Jackson. He grew up with so much money he never had to balance a budget or check a price tag, and he just takes it all for granted. And you're like that with your talent. You're... You're missing the Harper Avery Awards 'cause you take for granted that there's just gonna be another one. You take your talent for granted, and, you know, some of us work really hard, and we're just average.
Meredith Grey: You think I'm taking it for granted? I'm not taking anything for granted. I want that award so bad I could pick you up and throw you out a window, especially right now because my best friend's image is splayed out in front of me. Cristina Yang is the only one who gets just how badly I want that award. And, Kepner, you're not average.
April Kepner (to Jackson): Look, Jackson, I get that you're really good at compartmentalizing. You know, like, I'm your friend, I'm your person, I'm Harriet's mom, and sometimes we have sex and that's totally okay with you. I get it. It's just that you are a lot better at it than I am. Montana actually caused me pain. Yeah, I thought I was... I thought I was good. I thought it was fine. But then I spent weeks wondering what it was. And if it was nothing, then it's just, like, casual sex. Which, to me is... I... It causes me pain, the way that we're doing this. And I... I don't... I think I probably have to move out.
