Jo: Alex, you have a father.

Alex: I know, and he's a dirtbag.

Leah: Mr. Evans? I paged you to get Yang.

Yang's at the wedding. I'm here.

- Man: Dr. Derek Shepherd.
- Yes.

Please hold for the President
of the United States.

I cannot believe we're doing this!

- All this blood...
- Doctor, bypass...

I have it! 2-0 silk!

Miranda: Maybe it's time we talked about

why the hell you up and quit surgery.

Richard: What do we got here, son?

I did this. It's my fault.

I love you, April. I always have.

And I think that you love me, too.

Do you?

Meredith, when the President
of the United States

- calls you on the phone...
- I get it.

You can't-you can't say no to the guy.


I mean, when they start putting
government money behind a...

a program like that,
mapping the human brain,

the impact that that has
worldwide is just...

Big impact. Get me my curling iron, please.

The weeping sisters have gone through

every tissue in this building.

Did you get the mother
to calm down, at least?

I tried.

But how was I supposed to pretend

that what just happened wasn't
the coolest thing I'd ever seen?

[laughs] Cristina...

You know, I've always been
on the fence about Kepner,

but now I'm not just a friend, I'm a fan.

Was that about me?

No, it's about me.

The President called,

and I have to go back on
a promise I made to her.

Oh, good. Better you than me.


Of the United States.

- You are...not serious.
- Mm.

[cellphone beeps and vibrates]

Something's going on at the hospital.

- I want him fired!
- Owen: Karev...

I want him arrested!

Webber is watching over
your father like a hawk.

His vitals are stable,
and we're gonna do our best

to keep it that way, okay?

What the hell was this kid thinking?

He wasn't thinking.

- Jo: Yeah, no kidding.
- He was hallucinating.

He had no idea what was happening.

He thought the patient on
the table was Heather Brooks.

- Oh, my god.
- What?

He showed me how to fudge
your hours in the system

so you can continue working
without having to sleep.

For god's sakes...

I'll find him.

Cristina's on her way. She's gonna...

Alex: No, Yang is not touching him.

- Alex, I think...
- If that kid messed up, it's on her.

She lets him think he runs the place.

Why do you think he hacked up
Jimmy's heart all on his own?!

Let's just wait until
we get all the facts...

She's screwing him!

Callie: Okay, would you just
take a breath for a second?

Arizona: This one doesn't even have a card!

How is April supposed to return her gift

if we can't even manage to
keep the gifts with the card?

Okay, we'll find the cards. Arizona!


- We will fix it.
- No! We won't!

That's the whole problem.

You've been trying to
fix it... our marriage.

You've been trying to fix me,
and you're so good!

You're killing yourself just to fix me!

You don't have to apologize...

I'm not! That's the point!

Because I'm not the same
person that I was before,

and I don't want to apologize,
and I don't want to be fixed.

Whoa, whoa! Whoa, whoa, whoa.

I'm not the same person I was before,
either, but that doesn't...

It's not working, and you know it!

You knew it before I did.

Okay, can we just go home

and sit down and talk about this?

It's not my home anymore.

Maybe you could stop acting like a child...

Oh, now I'm a child.

Oh, that's great. That's... that's great.

I'm childish. I caused your OCD.

What-what else you got?
Did I cause global warming?

Maybe-maybe I killed JFK!
That would explain a lot, right?

You quit surgery!

See, this was supposed to be different

than my first marriage.

I thought you understood what
it means to be a surgeon!

Until you dropped it!

And now here I am, once again,
married to a man

who's waiting to see me
at the end of the day,

waiting to see what I'm gonna do,

when I'm gonna come home!

You think I was happy

to walk away from a surgical residency?

You think you were, what,
a-a convenient excuse to dump it?

Well, yes.

No, I was a damned star!

I had found what I'd been
looking for for decades,

and I... I walked away from it, yes,

because I wanted to be here with you!

And it was the hardest
choice I ever had to make.

You didn't want to leave surgery?

No! I did not want to leave surgery.

Hey. Still no Shane.

I'm gonna try his apartment.

If he's dead on the side of the road,
I am going to lose it.

Could you take her home?
She's had a rough day.

At a wedding?

What, you drank too much champagne?

You have blisters on
your feet from all the dancing?

My boyfriend ran off with the bride.

- What?!
- There was no dancing.

I'm gonna find you a ride home,

and as soon as things calm
down with Alex and his dad,

I'm gonna come over

and we're gonna drink a lot and burn things.

Can you wait five minutes?

[insects chirping]

[sirens wailing in distance]

April: Jackson, pull over.

Jackson, just pull over the car.

Just... what is it?

Jackson, please, just pull over the car now!

Relax. [sighs]

- Just calm down.
- Calm down?!

What are we doing?

Is-is there a plan?

Is... There's no plan.

You think I would plan to ruin your wedding?

No-no! That doesn't seem like you.

[breathes shakily]

All right, April, look...

I can't. I'm sorry.

We can't do this. I can't.

They'll fix the gutters,

the water damage in the bedroom, all of it.

You know, I rarely see
a deal go through this fast.

You were really ready to move.

Yeah, sometimes you just need a fresh start.



Um, I'm not sure we should be
popping the champagne just yet.

There's a man-sized blood
stain in the bedroom.

Now, they said they'd replace the carpet

before the close of escrow.

It's rust.

I think they said the
carpet guy's coming today.

Oh. Let me call them.

It's beautiful.

And it's gonna be ours.

It's a murder house.

Callie. Try.


[chuckles] kind of beautiful.

Paging Dr. Man... Dr. Sharp-dressed man.

I have kind of a big thing today.

Me too.

Rounds with Webber in 20,

followed by an E.R.
shift that... fingers crossed...

Could lead to my assisting

on any number of grisly
traumas this afternoon.

What's your thing?

I'm being vetted by the White House.

So it's kind of a big day for both of us.

If Steph doesn't want to talk about it,
we can't force it.

It's been three weeks,
and we haven't been able

to get one scrap of real intel

on what happened between Kepner and Avery.

They're avoiding each other,
she's avoiding us,

and nobody's saying anything.

Warren, you sit at the grown-ups' table.

You have to know something.

Mnh-mnh. I don't like gossip.

I don't like you.

Steph! Oh, my god, hi!

You came out of hiding! Yay!

I haven't been in hiding.

Okay, I've been in hiding, but...

time heals wounds or whatever.

- Really?
- Yeah, absolutely.

That's Shane's gear. Is he back?

I haven't seen him.

I can't believe the board
decided to let him come back.

Yeah, I bet a couple
weeks' rest did him good.

He's a... he's a good kid
who went down a bad road.

Can it, pops.

[elevator bell dings]

How old do you people think I am?


Ben Warren, you forgot your lunch.

You didn't-you didn't
have to do that, baby.

I was-I was gonna go to the cafeteria.

You do that, you're gonna
grab a pizza or a burger

and then come complaining
to me about heartburn,

and I don't want to hear it.



Can I change my answer?

'Cause now I want to say you're 12.


You told her what?

She's been dodging my calls for weeks.

Someone needs to take
responsibility for Jimmy,

and it's not gonna be me.

Technically, they're still married.

Yeah, but you can't just lie.

Turns out I can. It's really easy.

Good god, you look just like your father.

Sorry. Alex.

This is my fiancée, Jo Wilson.


Right. Well, we're gonna walk this way.

MVC pileup at the downtown waterfront. Whoa!

We've got multiple victims
coming in here, people!

Be careful!

Cars took out a bunch of pedestrians, too.

Was she conscious in the field?


Okay, let's get her to trauma room 4.

Ross! I need hands.

Owen: Ross, stay where you are.

You're with me today.

Edwards, go help Avery.

- Avery?
- Mm-hmm.

Oh. No. Sorry, uh...

Not Edwards. Okay.

Warren, Avery needs hands.

Now, hang on a second. Warren's with me.

You can't break up the big dogs.

Webber, I'm having enough trouble

juggling who can work with who.

Don't make it any harder.

Oh, for god's sake, I'll go with Avery.

Wouldn't want to break up
the "old dogs" or anything.

It's big dogs.

No, not a dog.

It was a cat... a really big cat.

- Man: Coming through!
- Owen: Another incoming!

Pedestrian, hit by a car, vitals are stable.

Possible fracture to the right arm.

Holy crap!

You know it's not my face that's injured.

It's my arm.


- Over there.
- Oh, okay.

Dr. Shepherd.

Miles Green. This is Rita Belmont.

Nice to meet you, Miles. Rita, pleasure.

Sorry I'm late.

Yeah, we knew you'd be late.

We've been tracking
your phone since last we spoke.

[laughs] No, I'm messing with you!

We don't track your phone.
Come on, have a seat.

I'm sorry. [laughs]

But, uh, don't kid yourself,

because we do know a crazy
amount of stuff about you.

Now, the White House
requires a deeper-than-normal

background check on anyone associated

with the President's programs,

so this process can get a little personal.

I understand.

Great. So, you know, let's just, uh...

ask you a few questions, eat a little lunch,

and go home happy.

What do you say? Okay.

Let's start with your wife.

So, uh, you two met when she was
a student of yours, was she not?

Yeah, I suppose.


Is that bad?

Cristina: Hey.

You feel like, uh, getting out
of the lab for half a day?

I've got an aortic aneurysm repair.


You want to do it together?

Unless you're busy or don't want to.

No, I'd love to. Sure. Are you sure?

Positive. It'd be fun, right?

Okay. Great.

And I was just walking down the street

and some chick blows through a red light...

Six-car smash-up.

One even comes up on
the sidewalk and takes me out.


Stupid woman...

His pupils are unresponsive.
These are contacts, right?


And the teeth are...?

Veneers... permanent. Whiskers... piercings.


So, you guys gonna doctor me up or what?


He complained of abdominal tenderness.

Right, uh, get a C.T.
to rule out internal injuries,

and then we'll fix the arm.

You know what?

Um, t-there was a little kid out there...

cracked her head open.

- Is she okay?
- Stephanie: We can find out.

Yeah, you know what?

Let's just worry about
getting you out of here

with all of your nine lives, okay?


Hustle up, Ross.

You're trying to protect her airway,
not make it worse.

Epiglottis is in the way.

I can't see the...

Dr. Warren, take over for Dr. Ross.

I'm sorry.


Now, that is how a second-year
resident intubates.

Okay, Ross, go find her phone.

See if she has any
emergency contacts listed,

unless you want Dr. Warren to
show you how to do that, too.


[clears throat]

[door closes]

Ross is still a little fragile.

That kind of tough love may wash him out

before he had a chance
to get back on his feet.

You don't mistake any of this for love.

If I had my way, he would not be here.

If the board want to go
against my recommendation

and bring him back, that's fine.

But I'm still the chief of surgery,

So I will deal with him as I see fit.

You didn't bring your son.

Wasn't any reason to bring Nicky.

I'm really only here for that guitar.

You can do whatever you want
with the rest of his stuff.

Keep it, toss it. Dealer's choice.

What the hell is this?

He's not dead?


- You lied to me.
- Yeah.

You know, this is our first surgery together

since everything fell apart.

I know. I'm enjoying it.

Me too, but I have a question
that might ruin the mood.

Well, just ask your question.

Where is Shane?

After the way you pushed us
all to let him come back...

I... You were right about him.

I should've seen it coming.

I am so pissed at him,
I'm afraid if I see him again,

I'll rip his arms out by the root.

Plus, Alex just started talking to me again.

You know, the parenting books say

when your kid does something wrong,

you have to put your anger
aside when you talk to them.

Oh, is that how you're dealing with Derek?


And what's awesome is, the nicer I am,

the guiltier he feels.

It's the only fun I have lately.

Mer, the President called him personally.

You really want to defend him

when we were having such a good time?

You're right. Screw the guy.

Thank you.

A proposal's a big deal.
You remember a proposal.

Was I drunk? Do I drink too much?

- You do drink a lot.
- Screw your life.

Screw your perfect little life.

What part of "accidentally engaged"
sounds perfect to you?

Oh, my god.

It was at the wedding.

Stop talking about weddings and engagements.

She just got left at the altar.

No, she wasn't.

She was left near an altar.

Ow! What?

Sorry, I just...
I needed the C.T. for a patient.

- My patient needs a C.T.
- We're almost done.

Great! Cool. Take your time.
I want you to have it, really.

I'll just come back later.

- What a bitch.
- Totes.

You need closure. Why don't
you just go talk to Jackson?

Why don't you just go talk to your fiancé?

Naomi: This can't be legal.

You can't just call someone up

and say "he's dead" if it's not true.

Well, he is dying.

He's septic. His organs are failing.

He's got a few days at the most.

Look, he knows you're coming.

So, what, I'm supposed to
sit in there, hold his hand,

and kiss away his tears like
he wasn't a complete bastard?

That guitar belonged to my father.

Left me three of them when he died.

Jimmy pawned the other two.

One day, the third one disappeared.

And so did he.

Look, it all started because he came in here

trying to get clean... for you and Nicky.

I mean, it was hell, but he did it.

At this point,
I think you're the only reason

he's still trying to hang on.

Don't bail on him now.

I was with Jimmy for five years.

I know what it sounds like
when he's full of crap.

You are 100% his son.

It took 15 surgeries total.


Spent everything I had.

How many people do you know that
are unhappy with who they are?

And do they do anything to change it?

'Cause, see, I didn't like who I was.

But I had the balls to
become who I wanted to be.

I committed.

Some people get a gym membership.

You went all-in.

I like it.

How's it go over with the ladies?

Well, you know, I had a girlfriend

when I started all this.

She loved it.


You know, but that ended... and, uh...

Listen, let's just say the cat man

gets more than his share of tail, okay?


- That's all I'm saying.
- Yeah.


Ow. [grunts]

Hey, what's the word on that little kid?

She wake up yet?

Well, I am so sorry,

But patient information's
confidential, so...

It's bad news, then, huh?


All right, you can go ahead
and remove those clamps.

Is there something you need
to say to me, Dr. Murphy?

You couldn't have given her a heads-up,

in the months you were seeing each other?

She was worried about Kepner.

She asked about it,
and you didn't say anything.

What, were you just
waiting for the right time

to publicly humiliate her?


I could've just kept working.
I didn't even have to ask you.

Why the hell did I ask you?

I guess you have a problem
with impulse control.

I have been trying to apologize
to her for weeks now.

She walks away the moment
she sees me coming.

I am miserable about what I did to her.

I had no idea I was gonna do it...

not till the moment it happened.

Still, Steph's alone,
Kepner's alone, you're alone.

Everybody's pretty miserable.

Seems like it all worked out
really well, doesn't it?

Dr. Murphy, I'm gonna get
back to fixing this man's arm.

Now, you can glare at me all you want to,

but you are gonna help.

They were all just staring at me,
judging me,

with their little resident eyes.

Like they used to stare
at you... cheater eyes.

Arizona: Ooh, yeah.
Cheater eyes are the worst.

But it's not like you deserve it, right?

I mean, you and Jackson...
it's not the same thing.

I mean, is it?

Well, I...

Hey, Renee called.

The carpet's gonna be done by 3:00,

and then we have an appointment
with the notary at 5:00.

Oh, you guys are signing
papers on the house today?

- That is so great!
- Well, maybe not.

There's no way I can be
out of here before 5:00.

No, it's fine. He's a traveling notary.

- He can come to us.
- Splendid.

Oh, and I have this ice-cream maker

I couldn't figure out how to send back.

That'll be your housewarming gift!


I told you we should've
kept track of the cards.

What happened? Did you get
the dirt on her and Avery?

I've been trying to get Ben to
do recon with the residents,

but he's all, "I don't like to gossip."

- Ooh. What?!
- Stephanie: Dr. Torres,

Robert Fischer's missing from his room,

and nobody knows where he is.

The cat man! The cat got out.


Dr. Ross, how about a little
lunch with the big dogs?

Dr. Hunt wants me to triple-check

all of Penny's labs before
we take her to surgery.

Well, we're not taking her
into surgery for a while.

You have time to sit down.


Besides, Dr. Warren could use
some friends his own age.

How old do you think I am?

Is that a dinosaur?


"Have a wonderful day, my special boy."

"Don't forget to wash your hands."


I obviously have Tuck's lunch by mistake.

Yeah, I'm getting a burger.


[pager beeps]

It's Chief Hunt.

I really need to get those labs.

I'll see you in surgery.

I'm sorry, kid.

I just want to say I'm sorry.

This is all my fault.

So get better, okay?


just get better.

Uh-oh. [screams]

Hey! Hey! What are you doing in here?!

[all screaming]

Robert: I'm sorry!


It happened before Kepner's
wedding, didn't it?

You... you said all that stuff
about being together forever

and having a family.

That was you proposing.

Are you serious right now?


What do you... what do you think it was?

I thought that you were
upset about your dad.

Proposals usually end in
"will you marry me?"

If I'd understood,
I never would have said...

Well, great.

Naomi's walking out on Jimmy,

and now you're walking out on me.

- It's freakin' kismet.
- Listen to me!

I'm not walking out on you.

But we can't get married

just because
you're screwed up about your dad.

Don't use him as an excuse for cold feet.

If you don't want to get
married, just say so.

I don't! I'm not ready. Okay?

But that's not the point.
This isn't about love.

- This is about grief...
- I'm not grieving!


damn it!

Well, your sister's drug
problem's under control.

She's sober, still going to meetings.

- She is?
- Yeah.

She doesn't concern us.

Hiring undocumented workers...
now, that'll get you the boot.

That and outstanding debt,

but you're good there...
no student loans, even.

Rita: Dr. Shepherd,

what can you tell us about Michael Boetcher?

Michael Boetcher.

Is Michael, uh...

Is he relevant to this?

Let's start with why
you've been sending his mother

$3,500 every month.

You're here.

Are they? [coughs]

No, they're not here.

I'm afraid... if I told you how much it...

means to me that you got
them to come on a plane...

You might call them and
tell them to forget it.

Take it easy.

I still don't know

how you managed to convince them to come.

I told them you were dead.

[laughing, coughing]

Wishful thinking?

Where's my guitar?

I threw some of your stuff in storage.

Oh, Alex...

can you bring it back down?

It belonged to Naomi's dad.

I took it.

Of all the crap I've done,
that was one of the lowest.

I want to give it back.


Make sure I'm awake when
they... when they get here.

[breathing heavily]

[monitor beeping]

Well, looks like the bone's still intact,

so you didn't do too much damage.

I never should've done it.

You think?

I never should have left the house.

This whole accident happened,

all these people were hurt because of me!

Because of some stupid
thing I've done to myself!

You know, when I started this,
my parents... everybody...

said, "you think you're gonna
like this in 20 years?"

I thought I would.

I thought I knew who I was.

I was 19.

So now I work from home...

same data-entry job for 16 years.

I can't date.

The kind of women who find me attractive

scare the crap out of me.

I don't have friends.

People stare, people laugh...

people punch.

And time goes by, and I realize

I haven't left my house
in a year and a half.

I said to myself, "Rob,
you got to do something."

"You-you got to try and live again."

"Just go out."

"Just go for a walk."

That was this morning.

Uh, we're just gonna
finish splinting this up,

make sure it's stable, okay?

Can you make it quick?

I just want to go home.

Jimmy's B.P.'s gone to crap.

In and out of consciousness?


This is it, isn't it?

He's out of time.

You okay?


Give me a break, Mer. Not you, too.

You of all people should understand.

You think there's anything you can do?

He has a DNR. I don't think so.

Let's finish up here and go take a look.


More suction.

Got a bleeder. Clamp, please.

Hold on. Dr. Ross, take over.

Which blood vessel is that?

It's a branch of
the superior mesenteric artery.

And how are you gonna repair it?

I'm gonna throw a surgical
tie around the clamp.

3-0 silk on a passer.

And what does the superior
mesenteric artery supply?

The midgut.

And what is the origin of the midgut?


The embryology.

Dr. Hunt, I think
he could probably do the tie

without the anatomy lesson...

Dr. Webber, I think a surgeon

should be able to demonstrate
a complete understanding

of the part of the body
before he operates on it.

The midgut is formed from the...

the primary intestinal loop and...


[scoffs] I'm sorry.

And the cephalic limb develops

into the distal duodenum,
jejunum, and ileum.

You're about to place a stitch
into this patient's body

and then seal her up,

and you can't tell me the basic anatomy

- that you're repairing?
- I'm sorry.

Do not apologize to me one more time.

You don't owe me an apology.

You owe one to the man whose
heart you ripped apart

because you didn't know what you were doing,

just like you owe an apology to this girl,

who is laying on this table, losing blood,

because you don't know
how to do a basic tie.

Leave the O.R., Dr. Ross.

Dr. Warren, do the tie.



It's, uh, really good to see you.

- You know, I've been calling...
- No, uh, I have a patient.

And he's done all these
surgeries to look like a cat,

and he doesn't want to
look like a cat anymore,

and he doesn't have any money.

But you could fix him, pro-bono.

Steph, I need to explain.

You telling me that
you feel guilty only helps you.

Not me.

If you want to do something useful,

fix the cat man.

Shane: Dr. Karev?

Walk away, Ross.

Dr. Karev, I owe you an apology.

I owe you both...

- What the hell?!
- Wait! Alex, stop!

Alex! Alex! Alex! Alex!

Alex! Get off!

Ross, get up, get up!

- Stop it! Stop it!
- Go!

- Stop it! What is going on?
- Get off of me, Mer.

Let's go! Come on!

Get off me.

Alex, please. Please.

I thought if I... came back,
kept my head down,

did the work, I might be able to...

not fix it,

but start to make up for
what I did to Karev's dad.


I don't deserve to feel better.

I deserved this.


You really did.

Baby Nathan's mom sent me this.

It's one of those annoying pictures

all mothers think are cute of their baby

with food all over its face.

Except this one...

It's not cute.

It's miraculous.


You saved a baby, Shane,

because you had the idea
to 3-D print the conduit

and wouldn't stop pushing
until I came around.

You made some bad choices...

but that was a good one.

Moving forward, make more good ones.

Everywhere you see a red tag,
sign your name.


[pen clicks]

Um... [chuckles]

I know you're excited.

You've been smiling since
we found the house,

and I have missed that smile so much.

But three weeks ago, you were
convinced we weren't gonna last.

I'm worried that you're thinking
about how good it feels now

and-and not thinking about the fact

that I come with the house.

You know why I smile when
I think about that house?


I look at that house

and I don't see a hospital
bed in our bedroom,

and I don't see a shower
that you had to drag me into

because I wouldn't do it on my own.

I see a tire swing and a tree house.

We may wake up in a year

and realize it was a huge mistake.

But if it works...

oh, my god.

Just thinking about it makes
me smile so hard my face hurts.

[both laugh]

Kissing the bride isn't enough.

You have to actually sign the papers.

Aah! [giggles]



What happened? Are you okay?


It's my fault.

I knew I shouldn't get involved with him.

I knew it was a mistake,
and I did it anyway.

It's too hard being here around him.

I should leave.

I could transfer.

Leaving's not the answer.

He took advantage here, not you.

He's your boss, and
he chose to start dating you.

And then he chose to humiliate you

in front of all of your co-workers.

He did that.

They all do it.

Arizona did it to me,
and Yang did a number on Shane.

They are our bosses,
and we're expendable to them.

But we shouldn't be.

You could do something about it.

You should do something about it.

That was vicious.

He was drowning in there,
and you were enjoying it.

Well, I'm sorry my style of leadership

doesn't involve taking Ross to lunch.

Tell me this isn't about
who he was sleeping with.

You really think I would let that interfere

with the way that I do my job?

I wouldn't have thought it before today.

Chief Hunt, there's someone
from H.R. looking for you.

I'll be right there.

[monitor beeping]

[breathing heavily]


Naomi and Nicky are on their way.

They're coming?

They're on their way.


Their plane was delayed.

I told them about the guitar.

They're coming?

They're coming.

I, uh, told them about the guitar.

I told them...

I to... I told them that...
that you love them.

You-you told them?

I told them.

They know you love them. They know.


It's okay.

It's okay, Jimmy.

It's okay. They know you love them.

They know.

You can go.

They know. You can go.


[monitor flatlines]

[flatline stops]

You son of a bitch.

Hey, hey.

Uh, did you get anything out of
Edwards about Avery or Kepner?

"Hello, honey. How was your day?"

Come on.

A resident went off the rails
and nearly killed a man.

I didn't see that coming.

People are buying houses and
running out on marriages.

Things are topsy-turvy all over the place,

and I don't understand any of it, so spill.

There's nothing to spill!

And even if there was, I wouldn't tell you,

because I need these kids to trust me.

- Oh! [scoffs]
- And the only reason

why there's a spot for me to fill

is because one of their friends died.

I have my work cut out for me as it is.



You had pizza for lunch, didn't you?


Okay, you don't have to
gossip with me, Ben Warren,

but you'd better not start lying to me.


- It was a burger.
- Ha!

The plot thickens.

They found something.

I played hockey in high school.

I have a lot of slides to
get through here, Derek.

There was this kid... Michael Boetcher.

He and I were the most
aggressive guys on the team,

and one day at practice,

I cross-checked him into the boards.

We both went down,

both got back up, we continued to play.

Boetcher didn't come back
to school the next day.

He had a brain bleed that night.

He died?

It was worse than that.

It was a pontine bleed, so he couldn't move,

couldn't communicate.

All he could do was blink.

So the President's people
found out about this, or...?

He's been in long-term care ever since.

I send his family money.

They wondered why.

So your deep, dark secret

is that you've spent the last 30 years

paying for an accident that happened

- when you were a teenager?
- Because I put him there.

And then you became a neurosurgeon,
like a superhero.

And now the President of the United States

has hand-picked you to carve
out the future of medicine.

I have no room to be angry here,
but this is infuriating!

Well, if I could turn it down, I would.

You know what would help me?

If you would just stop talking

about your duty to god and country

and just admit that you want to do this.

I do. Of course I do. Yes.

Yeah, see, somehow,
I thought that was gonna help me,

but it only made me angrier!

[cellphone rings and vibrates]


Uh, no, Dr. Shepherd cannot
come to the phone right now

because he is fighting with his wife.

- Who is it?
- It's the White House.

Give me the phone! Give me the phone.

It's Owen. Do you think I'm nuts?

They're calling an emergency board meeting.

Is this about what happened
with Karev and Ross?

What happened with Karev and Ross?

Both: Nothing.

Owen: One of our surgical
residents has lodged

an official complaint with human resources.

Three separate complaints, actually...

directed sexual harassment,
quid-pro-quo harassment,

and hostile work environment.

What? Who? Directed at whom?

H.R. won't release that or
the name of the resident.

Callie: [scoffs] Hostile work environment?

- Come on.
- Does she have a case, legally?


Is there way that we could...

or maybe I could... talk to this person?

You know, we could just clear the air

before it gets out of proportion.

He shouldn't talk to her
without legal present.

Well, if she's already filed a complaint...

You're all missing the point!
This is not about one person.

This is a complaint about this hospital

and this teaching program.

We are too often letting
our personal lives disrupt our work.

None of us are guilt-free...

myself included.

Now, H.R. have recommended a clear,
zero-tolerance policy.

"Excluding those of
pre-existing married couples..."

"relationships of romantic or sexual nature"

"between superiors and subordinates"

"will not be allowed."

It is restrictive, it is non-negotiable...

But it is fair, and, better still,
it is unambiguous.

I urge you all to vote to implement this.

Looking back, it's easy to see

when a mistake has been made...

And-and Stephanie?

What are we supposed to say to them?

My-my parents? Your mother?

Oh, my god. My mother.

How do we explain that we just destroyed

two perfectly lovely people so
that we could... what, date?!

Okay, the best solution

is never to speak to any of them ever again.


Or we get married. I...

Because that's easier to explain.


No, 'cause you're right, all right?

I don't want to just date.

April, I want the whole damn thing.


We can get to lake Tahoe in 13 hours.

How do you know that?

Do you want to get into that right now?


No, you don't want to get into that

or, no, you don't want to get married?

But if we used our best judgment

and listened to our hearts,

we're more likely to see
that we chose wisely...



And avoided the deepest, most painful

regret of them all...

The regret that comes

from letting something amazing pass you by.
