|“||At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need.||”|
Miranda tries to make sure that Burke and Cristina are punished, but Richard feels otherwise. Meredith is spooked when her half-sister is admitted and George gets too involved in his father's case as the rest of the staff attempt to separate adult conjoined twins.

- Richard: Burke, you and Shepherd need to come together on this tremor as soon as possible.
- Derek: He doesn't want my help.
- Richard: Derek...
- Burke: I don't want his help.
- Richard: That hand is worth 2 million dollars. I want it fixed and I want it fixed yesterday. Figure it out!
- Bailey: I start to think I shouldn't be operating after the Duquette M&M, all the whispers and talk. I let that in and started to question myself, I believe it when I was told that I was no longer of use in the OR.
- Derek: Oh, so when you said you wanted justice you were talking about...
- Bailey: I'm a surgeon, there are lives in my hands and to make me question that—well that's like putting a life at stake every time that I hold a scalpel.
- Derek: I told Burke I could fix his hand and...
- Bailey: Well, you did. I mean, he is not paralyzed or- or disabled in anyway. He has a tremor and if he had been honest about that well, then there's no telling what you could've done to prevent it.
- (about the case with the conjoined twins)
- Alex: I'm calling it. It's mine.
- George: I have two brothers. I feel their pain.
- Izzie: I would be great at watching this.
- Bailey: Zip it. All of you.
- Alex: We're all on the case, right?
- Bailey: (reluctantly) Right.
- George: Yes!
- Alex: Awesome.
- Bailey: Stevens. You are to---
- Izzie: Look and not touch or speak or breathe. I got it.
- Mark: So this is the crack team, huh?
- Bailey: Feel free to take one.
- Mark: How about I take the one who doesn't touch, or speak or breathe?
- Izzie: (under her breath) Great.
- Hahn: You remind me of myself when I was an intern.
- Cristina: I do?
- Hahn: Focused, intense, cold, and I don't mean that as a bad thing, cold is good. The dating, the friends and the family, if you ask me, it's all overrated.
