Richard Webber: Each of you comes here today hopeful, wanting in on the game. A month ago, you were in med school being taught by doctors. Today... you are the doctors. The seven years you spend here as a surgical resident will be the best and worst of your life. You will be pushed to the breaking point. Look around you. Say hello to your competition. Eight of you will switch to an easier specialty. Five will crack under the pressure. Two of you will be asked to leave. This is your starting line. This is your arena. How well you play, that's up to you.
Arizona Robbins: What happened? (to April)
Owen Hunt: MVC. They rolled a car. I found her in a ravine. She was hypothermic.
Richard Webber: She and Matthew Taylor...
Owen Hunt: Yeah, they've been doing volunteer work together at a clinic...
Arizona Robbins: No, they've been seeing each other. For months now. She didn't want to tell anybody. She didn't want the judgments or the opinions about how long he'd waited or... whether or not she was doing the right thing. She said it was different than before. You know, that they've been through so much since they were together. She lost a child, and... he lost a wife, and... that they knew each other's pain like they knew their own. And that they knew how fragile it is, how rare it is. That something good could come out of so much pain. And they fell in love again. She's in love.
Miranda Bailey: I've been trapped in my bed. I've binged every reality show ever made, and I can physically feel my IQ lowering. I'm getting back in the OR. Pierce cleared me.
Maggie Pierce: I did. She's cleared. I cleared her. She's cleared, and I'm not taking it back no matter how sternly you stare at me.
Richard Webber: I had things to do today. Now I've got to spend my day following her.
Maggie Pierce: Or you could just trust my professional assessment. (Webber leaves) No?
Richard Webber: The idea is that we create a file of the chemical and molecular markers in various types of tumor cells, and then we pre-program this into the device to rapidly identify the different types, okay? So you can know in surgery on contact where the healthy tissue is... and where the cancer is... and make it go away.
Maggie Pierce: It's not a pen. It's a wand. It's a magic wand.
Maggie Pierce: My mom was my barometer, you know? And right before she died... and I mean right before she died... she told me to be more slutty. And I just wish I could call her and tell her how slutty I'm being.
Richard Webber: I'd, uh... I'd... I'd rather you not talk about that particular detail, yeah.
Maggie Pierce: You know, I felt that as I said it.
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.
Richard Webber (to Amelia): I've checked your mortality rates since you arrived at Grey-Sloan. It's a 0.9%. Derek's was 1.3%. Yours is better than his, and he didn't have a brain tumor. All I see here is successes a-and surgical firsts. You didn't hurt these people, Amelia. But you are hurting the people that love you. If you don't let them help you through this, you'll hurt them a lot worse.
