Previously on
"Grey's Anatomy"...

AMELIA: There's a scientific study

that if you stand like this
in superhero pose,

you will perform measurably better.

Owen, will you marry me?

- Where are we running?
- Ahh!

Um, kids.

- Five.
- Whoa. Five?!

Hey, you got a minute to talk?

AMELIA: Owen, there's
nothing to talk about.

I don't want to have a baby!

Is she okay? Is she sober?
Just tell me that.

STEPHANIE: She's safe.

Tell her to come home.





AMELIA: There are 100 billion
neurons in the human brain...

- Are you sure you don't want me

to call your mom?

She didn't come for my wedding.

She doesn't get to come
for my tumor.

It's helping us with math...

So when the brain is faulty,
it's a big rewiring job.

And there's no margin for error.

KORACICK: I'll go in
through a subfrontal craniotomy,

real clean,
small incision in the dura,

and then scoop the tumor out.

I don't like
the edema around the tumor,

but I got to dance with the girl
who brought me, so...

I imagine you have questions.

Yeah, uh, how many of these
have you done?

So, so many.

And what's the recovery time?

I took a 13-centimeter tumor
out of a cop

in roughly the same place.

He was walking day one,
talking day three,

back at work end of the week,

Thank you, Tom.

See you at the after party.


He seems arrogant enough.

He's a showboat.

And he works best under
pressure, so, DeLuca,

ask him questions during
surgery, make him show off.

- And if I make it through...
- When you make it through.

- Early ambulation protocol.
- Thank you.

Okay. Meredith, if I die...

You are not going to die.

But if I do, you call my mom.

I'm sorry, but she likes you.

And, you, take my room.

It is way better.
I kind of scammed you on that.

- Stop it.
- No, she's right. It's way better.

Owen, if I'm gorked,

do not overthink it,
do not visit me.

Just park me somewhere
and go on with your life.

- Amelia, please cut it out.
- And if I need unplugging,

April has been named
my power of attorney.


W-Was I supposed to say no?

She likes me.
She will be there for you.

But we're not so close that
she'll let emotion dictate her decision.

I don't know what's me and
what's tumor talking, but, um...

[SHAKILY] In this moment,
I love you people tremendously.







KORACICK: [SOFTLY] I love this.

Are there really studies on this?




When you're going into surgery,
you worry you won't wake up.

But with brain surgery,
you worry you will wake up...



But you won't be there when you do.

Season 14 Episode 04
Title: "Ain't that a Kick in the Head"


The first intern interview
is already here?

Yes. 45 minutes early.

We know
they all have the grades.

We just need to see
if they're...

- Functional human beings.

You've worked very hard for this.
You deserve this.

And even though
you overdosed your Aunt Joan

on her blood-pressure medication,

you are awesome
because y-you can recite

every artery in the body

[INHALES SHARPLY] Abdominal aorta,

alveolar anterior,

- alveolar inferior, alveolar superior...
- I think we're finished here.

- Anterior cecal.

MEGAN: If you say a number I don't like,

I'm going to hit you
with this magazine.

- Still over 100.
- Barely a fever.

- A fever's a fever.
- It's minor.

It's not like I'm having...
brain surgery or something.


She avoided you during my surgery.
You're avoiding her now.

I suddenly understand
your marriage completely.

Amelia has a lot of support.

And with Riggs pulling
what he's pulled on you...

I turned down his proposal.

I told him I didn't want him.

He had every right and every reason

to pack his bags and walk away.

I mean, a goodbye
might've been nice, but...


APRIL: Please don't make me
have to unplug her.

Please don't make me
have to unplug her.

Lord, please make her be okay.

- ♪♪"FUN, FUN, FUN" Plays...
- Please let her be okay.

Please don't make me
have to unplug her.

KORACICK: ♪ And she'll
have fun, fun, fun ♪

♪ Till her daddy takes the T-bird away ♪

♪ Fun, fun, fun till her daddy
takes the T-bird away ♪

Any issues with the edema?

♪ Well, the girls can't stand her ♪

♪ 'Cause she walks, talks,
and drives like an ace now ♪

Also wondering if you're
all the way around the dura.

♪ She makes the Indy 500 ♪

♪ Look like a Roman chariot race, now ♪

Also, why did you choose
this particular music?

DeLuca, sing along or shut up.

♪ But she leads them
on a wild-goose chase now ♪

♪ Goose chase now,
you drive like an ace ♪

♪ And she'll have fun, fun, fun ♪

♪ Till her daddy takes the T-bird away ♪

♪ Fun, fun, fun
till her daddy takes... ♪

I still can't believe...

That masturbation
diagnosed a brain tumor?

God works in such mysterious ways.


The Beach Boys seems like an odd choice.
Like, inappropriate.

No, Riggs leaving Megan...
that's inappropriate.

I never liked Riggs in the first place.

And I'm an excellent judge
of character.

Right, because you have zero history

with crazy girlfriends.

My judgment has improved with age.

♪ Well, you knew
all along that your dad ♪

♪ Was gettin' wise to you now ♪

♪ You shouldn't have lied ♪

♪ And since he took your set
of keys, you were thinking... ♪

♪ That your fun is all through now ♪

- Why did he stop singing?
- He stopped singing.

♪ But you can come along with me... ♪

This is the crucial part.
He has to cut the last vessel.

And sometimes it's a feeder to the...

- ♪ And we'll have fun, fun, fun ♪

- What was that?
- What happened?

That was the vessel en passant.

It looked like it was
going into the meningioma,

but in fact it was going
straight through to the brain.

He didn't have a choice.
It's okay.

- Is it?
- It is?

It's probably fine.
It could be really bad.

- I'm sure it's fine.
- Hmm.

♪ Fun, fun now that Daddy
took the T-bird away ♪

♪ Whoo, whoo-ooh-ooh-ooh ♪

♪ Fun, fun now that Daddy
took the T-bird away ♪

MEREDITH: I'm saying
you clipped the vessel.

KORACICK: The tissue went a little dusky.
It doesn't mean that that...

OWEN: She's 11 hours post-op.

- MAGGIE: Shouldn't she be awake by now?
- I'm not concerned yet.

With that amount of bleeding,

- recovery time can be...
- She's awake.

Thank, God. Thank you, God!

MEREDITH: Amelia, how do you feel?

AMELIA: I'm okay. How'd it go?

- Amelia, can you hear me?

Yes. I'm right here.

OWEN: Is she awake?

MAGGIE: Or did she just
open her eyes? Amelia?

They can't hear me.

- I don't think she's...
- Oh, my God!

L-Listen. Everybody's
recovery time is different.

Let's not... panic.

Oh, crap. Am I gorked?

It's okay. She's okay.

Oh, crap!


- Hey.
- Hmm!

- Sorry.
- Hey.

There's no change.

But, uh,
it's 5:30 in case you want

- to get a shower or something.
- Okay. Thanks.

Ooh. Okay.

I'm gonna go take a shower,

I'll be back soon.

It's sweet you slept here.


I think she just squeezed my hand.

did you just squeeze my hand?

Ow. Stop talking.

My head hurts, Meredith.

I'm trying to sleep.

- Maybe not.

Oh, my God.
She's breathing over the tube.

- Let's get her extubated.
- Okay. This is good!

This is good.

Ow. God.
So much talking.

I know that I'm younger
than most of your applicants,

so to answer some questions
you may have,

I went to high school at 12,
I went to college at 14,

I went to medical school at 16,

and I lost my virginity at 18.

You may not have asked that last one.

Have to keep this on
in case Mass Gen calls.

They're my number one.

But you guys are a solid number two.

You know what, though?

I think after being here,
I'm impressed.

Grey-Sloan is moving up.

Level one trauma.
The weather's amazing.



- RICHARD: Ahh. How was the flight?
- Fine.

- Ah. And the service?
- It was tasteful.

It was a bunch of kiss-asses
sniffing around for money,

telling stories
about how Harper Avery

was nice and decent
and [SCOFFS] respected women.

All right, so,
we'll have a family supper

and do our own thing and
talk about the real Harper Avery.

Right now I need to change.
Want to help me?

KORACICK: Catherine Avery?

- Thomas Koracick?!

Ohh! How is it that
I'm aging and you aren't?

- Oh, shut up.

Uh, you've met my husband,
Richard Webber.

- Oh!
- And this my son, Jackson.

- Oh! H-How old is he?
- Hey.

- Why?
- I want to make sure he's not mine.

- You are just awful.

Uh, how's, uh, Shepherd?

She's, uh, responsive,
not yet verbal.

It's early.

We should catch up.


Anything you want to tell me?

I prefer to let you wonder,

keep the mystery alive.

RICHARD: Mm-hmm.


Ooh! Look at Dr. Fancypants!

Trying to lure
in that big facelift money?

I was at a funeral.

I am a terrible person.

You look very somber.

How much money
did he leave you?

That's not an appropriate question.

Well, I just want to know exactly.
I mean, do they

just back up
a truckload of silver spoons?


It's a fleet of limos,
not a truck.

Um, you, uh, paged me?
What's up?

[SIGHS] Bad timing.
Never mind.

What do you mean?
Bad timing for what?


I'm publishing Megan Hunt's surgery,

and it might get consideration
for a Harper Avery.

So you want to take my name off it.

No, I understand...
You can't win a Harper Avery

if the article says "Jackson Avery."

I mean, I know the timing
of the ask is unfortunate,

but the deadline is in a few days.

And... I really am sorry for your loss.

- Take my name off, then.
- Yeah?

Go for it. Yeah, just be grateful

that your mother didn't
start up a foundation.

Yeah, that Alzheimer's
really put a wrench

in her charitable giving,
but I owe you one.

- Thanks.
- Yes, you do.

Here we go.

Just a little bit more.


Please stop.

[SOBS] No! It hurts!


what the hell are you doing?!

It's early ambulation.
Dr. Shepherd does it with all her patients.

This patient is post-op day one.

- Put her back in that bed.
- She told me to do this.

I change my mind. I change my mind.

No. The giant tumor that was
pressing on her frontal lobe

told you to do it.
It also made me promise

not to give her any opioids,
which is so incredibly stupid.

Put her back in this bed now!

Agreed. DeLuca, I agree.

- Sir, she made me promise.
- Damn it!

[CHUCKLES] Hey. You sleeping with her?

- What?
- What?!

You heard me. You getting some extra
office hours in with Shepherd?

No! Okay?
Just... I-It's her protocol.

And her patients have
a high recovery rate...

higher than yours,
which she wanted me to say to you,

because... she knew you wouldn't like this.


I am such an ass.

If her intracranial pressure
increases, it's on you.

Okay, Dr. Shepherd.

You got this, okay?
Just to the chair.

I mean, we could. It's
probably effective, but I'm...


I just want to see my kid.

I'll take oral antibiotics.
It's just a low-grade fever.

No. Unfortunately, it's more than that.

Your white count is elevated.

- There's some erythema.

We're gonna need to do
three days IV of cefazolin.

Three days?

- I'm sorry.


Have you heard from Nathan?

- No. Have you?
- No.

For what it's worth,
I told him you were the real deal.

I sent him to you.

And I sent him to you.
Pretty firmly.


I think we broke his brain.


[Woman on p.a. speaking indistinctly]

Hey, Wilson, Megan's got cellulitis,

so let's start her on one gram "Q,"

8 of cefazolin, and
increase her fluids please.

This won't affect your article, will it?

No. I-I'm only asking because
I'm worried about you...

and her and... medicine.

Yes, Wilson...
I'm putting your name on the article.

[LAUGHING] Really? Oh, my God.
Okay, thank you.

Thank you. [CLEARS THROAT]

Oh, and the journal is
asking for photos of us

to put with the article,

so if you have one you like,
just send it to me.




In, out, out, out... Ow, ow.

the body can't heal as quickly

if it's experiencing so much pain.


AA has no opinion on drugs
for pain relief

as long as you follow
the doctor's orders.

Opioids are my drug of choice.

What if they told you you could
have "just a drink or two"

if the doctor says it's okay?

You're sure you don't
want to reconsider?

Please stop.

I didn't think so.

But I had to ask.



I used to scream at her to shut up

all the time in my head.

No, no.
I heard you a couple times.

I mean, now I wish
she would just say anything.

How is she?
Is she talking?

- No.
- Did you call her mom yet?

- Did you unplug her yet?

That's not funny. At all.

I mean, seriously, so,
she left a thriving practice

and a fiancé in L.A. to come
and live with her brother

- who she resented.
- Yeah?

That was the tumor.

How did we miss this?

Man, I just wish I had a tumor
to blame

- my stupid crap on.
- No. Guys! [LAUGHTER]

- "DeLuca, I'm sorry I hit you. Tumor."

- This is not cool.
- Riggs. Tumor.

- Minnick.
- Oh, tumor.

- No! Do not encourage them.
- What? You have to laugh, April.

I mean, in situations like this,
you have to laugh.

No. She trusted me with her life.

- ALL: Tumor!
- [LAUGHING] Stop!


Speak of the devil.

- My tumor's calling.
- Oh, are you gonna answer?

No. Once that's diagnosed,
you cut it right out.

Hey, Riggs panicked.
People panic.

- Oh, don't defend him.

- It's DeLuca.
- Amelia's talking!

- She's talking.
- Really?!

- She's talking?
- Sort of.


It's weird, right?


- It's French.
- She speaks French?

- I speak French. She speaks German.

- What is she saying?

Sorry. She said she needs
a glass of water.


You know, all the Shepherd children

went to French preschool.

And it's still in her brain somewhere?

- Merci.
- I've seen this before.

It reverses on its own,
but this is...

It's still good. It's progress.




What'd she say?

Uh, I asked her
if she could speak in English,

and she said, "Didn't even know
I could speak French."


Weaknesses? Uh, hmm.

I hate all my peers.
All of them.

Yeah, med school is filled
with legacy kids

who expect everything easy.

I had to work my ass off
for everything that I have.

I saw what I wanted,
I took dead aim,

and I earned it.

But if that attitude is a problem,

you definitely shouldn't hire me.

You'll get a major
signal boost from me.

When I started med school,

I had 47 followers on Instagram.

That number's over 10,000 now.

People are really invested
in my journey.

And when I'm here,
that'll become our journey.

Oh! Which reminds me...
Can we get a Snap?


- One...


Dr. Steve Irvan to the O.R.

Dr. Steve Irvan to the O.R.





You're overreacting.

I-I have to get this out!

No! Megan, you're in the middle
of an antibiotic treatment.

You can't just... Megan, stop!

- What's happening?

Farouk's at the hospital
in Baghdad,

and I can't get him on the phone,
and my C.O. can't tell me what's going on.

- They said he was anemic.
- He's not anemic.

He eats dates every day,
which is plenty of iron.

Look. I have to go.

You can just write me
a prescription for the rest,

and I'll fill it on the way
to the airport.

Megan, you're bleeding.
Give me your arm.

And you have an infection,
and you know what that means.

- I'll sign an A.M.A. form, okay?!
- When I was adopting my daughter,

there was a moment where I thought
they were gonna take her from me,

so I stole her.

I kidnapped my own daughter

because I felt exactly
the way you feel right now.

All I did was make everything worse.

I made it worse for her,
and I made it worse for me.

So let's just take a moment,


You can't help him if you're dead.




You okay?


I don't have Harriet tonight.

I have trouble going home
when I don't have Harriet.


I remember that.


It's really hard. At first.

At first?

Yeah. Eventually...

you have a new normal.

You know, eventually, you...

You miss her on the nights
that you don't have her,

but you know that she's
somewhere safe and loved,

and the ache is just less.

And then maybe
some new grown-up fun

- comes into your life.

And maybe there's some joy in that.

I don't want a new normal.





Don't you have hot Italian sex
waiting for you?


- [LAUGHS] You do.
- Mm-hmm.


Hey. How is she?

The same.

Meredith, what do you think?

I mean, how bad is this long term?

Do you think we'll get her back?


I wish I knew.

Would you keep it down?

- Sorry.
- That was English!

- Wait.
- She spoke English.

When was I not?

How are you? How do you feel?

I'm okay. I'm good.

Do you know what happened?
Do you know where you are?

I had a surgery. I had a brain tumor.

- Call Koracick.
- Mm-hmm.

Ugh. No.
Koracick is such a blowhard.

- This is good!

You should call Derek.


AMELIA: I mean, I know
that Derek is dead.

I just forgot he was dead.

But then the second that you
tell me, it's all there.

It's like I have this jigsaw puzzle,

but I can't put the pieces in
until you give them to me.

What if I can't be a surgeon anymore?

What if I get into surgery and
I can't find my way back out?

She's panicking.

Amelia, work the problem.

What's the cause of your memory loss?

It's, uh, retrograde amnesia.


From damage to the temporal lobe.

But you were in the frontal.

There could be
interruption of blood flow,

ischemia-reperfusion injury, edema.

It's likely temporary.

W... Say that again.

It might be temporary.

Yes. It will be.
You know what this is.

You don't have to be afraid of it.

You will be a surgeon again.

You're too good not to.

So am I.

Now, I need you to simmer down

so I can get these scans,

- Okay.
- Thank you.

She was hot for teacher back in the day.
She tell you about me?



- Stop calling me.

If you couldn't think of
anything to say before you left,

there certainly isn't
anything to talk about now.

NATHAN: Hello, Dr. Grey.

I'm so glad I was
finally able to reach you.

Putting you on speakerphone,


I'm here
at the embassy in Baghdad,

and the officials have
some questions

they need answered
by Farouk Shami's doctor

regarding his beta-thalassemia

and the clinical trial you're running.

So we can secure his
medical travel visa, okay?

Y-Yes, of course, Dr. Riggs.

I'm sorry I didn't call you back sooner.

DR. ALAZARI: Hello, Dr. Grey.
I'm Dr. Alazari,

- the U.S. Embassy Panel Physician.
- Of course.

In the sample you received,
how was his MCV?


Uh, low... 68.

Ferritin level?

Uh, 111, but the sample could've
decayed during transport.

Were there any Heinz bodies
on the peripheral blood smear?

Um, I'm sorry.
I'm having trouble hearing you.

- Let me move to a better spot.

Dr. Grey, I said, "Were there
any Heinz bodies... "

Yes. There were Heinz bodies
on the blood smear.

Thank you, Doctor. We will let you know

if we have any further questions.

Okay. Great. Thanks.

Dr. Riggs?



NATHAN: I'm alone now.

Why didn't you tell me
you were gonna do this?!

Why didn't you pick up your phone?!
I've been calling you for days!

Why didn't you call someone else?!

Because they are
rule followers, Meredith,

and you're the one that told me
to make the grand gesture.

I'm sorry.
When you left, I just...

I didn't know.
Do you think it worked?

I don't know. Look.
If we're back in Seattle

BY 3:00 tomorrow,
then it worked.

Okay. So what can I do now?

Just don't tell Megan about this,

Not until I know for sure
what's gonna happen.

- Pick up your phone next time!


[SOFTLY] I just want to help people,

and I think that
doctors can save lives

and change the world
and eradicate diseases.

I-I'm sorry.

can you just speak up a little bit?

Um, I just want to help people,

and I think that doctors
can change the world,

help save lives,
and eradicate disease.



There was a problem,

and the problem has been

Sports band! [CHUCKLES]

I tried contacts,
but they required me

to touch my eyeball
with my finger, so... no.


CATHERINE: Hello, there!


- Maggie?

Ohh! I wasn't expecting you.

Well, you know,
I saw her on the way out,

and I... I thought
we could set another place.

Uh-huh. [CHUCKLES]

- Oh. Hey.
- Hey.

That looks amazing.

Yes. Well, welcome.

Richard, could you help me

in the kitchen for a moment, please?

- Excuse me.


I said family supper.

And Maggie's not family?

Oh, please. I didn't mean that.

It's just... [SIGHS]

you could've at least have called.

Well, I like to keep a sense of mystery.

Oh, please. Are we talking
about Thomas Koracick now?

Oh, we don't have to
talk about anything.

Beautiful house.

Oh, you've never been?

I know.
Sometimes I think he

- worries about pushing the dad angle.
- Hmm.

He's a good guy... Richard.

Very. So is your mom.

They are good people.

Good folks.

You want some wine?

I would like a gallon of it.

I've been on this planet
for six decades.

There have been penises
in my life

that are not attached to you.

So stop trying to
change the subject.

You haven't told me
what the subject is.

I wanted to talk to Jackson tonight alone,
just us.

Well, what about?

The boy's grandfather just passed!

I understand that!

[SIGHS] I'm sorry about all this.

Oh, it's fine, it's fine.
My parents had loud discussions.

CATHERINE: It's complicated!

I just... I need to talk to
Jackson about his inheritance!

You know what? I'm just gonna... Yeah.

RICHARD: How complicated is it?!

CATHERINE: A quarter of a
billion dollars! That's how!


Who's hungry? [CHUCKLES]





Everything tastes really wonderful.

It's so wonderful.

Tell me again why they can't just
give the money to the foundation.

He left plenty to the foundation.

That was his gift to you.

That's not a gift, Mom.
It's an economy.

It's how he showed his love.

Yeah, well, I don't want it.

You know what I do want?

I want a fair chance to
actually win his damn award.

- Jackson.
- I know.

Look, I'm not complaining
about it. I just...

Yes, you are.
And I will not abide it.

I'm not complaining.
It's just... It's a lot!

You think having
a lot of money is tough?

Try not having it some time.

No, I get it. I mean, I...

I, uh... I went to college
on a full ride when I was 15,

which sounds awesome,
but I had no friends

and I cried all the time,
and it was awful.

I mean, I don't know what
it's like to have Beyoncé money,

but I do know that
research shows

that having too many choices
is a leading cause of stress.

And now Jackson can literally
choose to do anything

for the rest of his life.

You could buy a vineyard
and never work again.

Or you could buy a hospital
and work until the day you die.

Even if you give it away,

you have to decide who gets it
and who doesn't.

You could buy an island.

Or you could buy two islands
and make them fight each other.

I mean, I get that
you're not complaining.

But it is a problem. It is stressful.

Still, it's a good problem
to have, right? [CHUCKLES]

Is there more wine?


- You know where you are?
- I'm at work.

Do you know who the president is?

- I wish I didn't.
- Very good.

Dr. Shepherd,
your post-op scans are pristine.

I'm clearing you to go home.

I'll see you in a few days
for a follow-up, hmm?

It's been a pleasure
being treated by me.

Yay! This is incredible!

I want to see my scans. All of them.

Amelia, he said you're fine.

You're cleared to go home.

Something's wrong. Something's missing.

Um, please get my scans.

Air Force, with distinction,

two tours in Iraq in cybersecurity.

Thank you for that.

And you left to go into medicine.

One day I caught some shrapnel,

and I woke up on a cot in a CSH tent.

I watched 3 combat surgeons
save 37 soldiers in 6 hours.

I counted. I kept score.

I thought, "That's not a bad way
to spend your time."

Also, I watched a lot of
"M.A.S.H." when I was a kid,

and I had a real thing
for Hawkeye Pierce.

Me too!


I read all about the fire.
And the resident who set it?

Incredible. So smart, so brave.

Just... fierce, you know?

She's officially my new hero.

And I'm so excited to see all the changes
you make when you rebuild.

We already rebuilt.

Right! No. Of course you did.
It's... gorgeous!

Who's your designer?

MEREDITH: Come on, Nathan.
Come on, Nathan.

Dr. Grey, uh, if it's all right,

um, I need you to take
my name off the paper.


It's okay. I know that
Alex told you about him.

[GASPS] Oh, Wilson, when I asked you

for that picture,
I wasn't even thinking.

It's not your job to think about it.

- It's okay.
- Okay.

Why would you take your name
off that article?

Because if I didn't,

my psychopathic husband
might see my picture,

learn my new name,
and come kill me.

[LAUGHS] That's...

Wait. Seriously?

Y-You're married?

And in hiding.

Okay, how about you tell me
a secret about yourself

so that I'm not the only one
who feels so horribly exposed?

A-All right. Um... [CHUCKLES]

Uh, I'm training for something,

and if my wife finds out,
she is not gonna like it.

Like, a lot.

Wait. What is it?


I once had a patient with bipolar
disorder and a malignant glioma.

I took out the tumor.
Bipolar didn't change.

I once had a patient
with an armpit fetish pre-op.

Tumor came out,
guy still loved him some pits.

Are you saying you think
I'm nuts?

I'm saying there's
nothing physically wrong

with you anymore.
Go home.

DeLuca, schedule a functional MRI,

a carotid duplex,
and another CT with contrast.

Dr. Shepherd, respectfully, I just...

I don't understand
what we're looking for.

I'll know when I'm looking at it.

- You're the doctor?
- Yes. I'm Dr. Grey.

What is the hold-up exactly
with my patient?

The individual can't be
released until DHS comes

and checks it off, and we're
waiting on some paperwork

- from INS that needs...
- He cannot wait for paperwork.

Well, he seems all right for now,
so just let me do my job,

and we'll get him out of here
as quick as we can.

Does he?
Does he seem okay to you?

Do you know what
thalassemia major looks like?

- Um...
- I do.

As clearly as the yellow
in your eyes tells me

you should see a doctor
and get your liver checked soon.

And do you have a form that you fill out

for standing by while a child dies?

Because you're gonna need that
one if you don't open this door

and get me my patient
and let me do my job.

I never use lengthy medical terms,
always use first names.

I try to connect with them

over an anecdote
or a shared experience.

I think patient connection

is... just as important
as surgical dexterity.

Well, nobody ever bled out
from rudeness.

Right. Right, right.

Not as important.

After I finished undergrad,

I applied for the primary-care

Why did you bring a dog
to your interview?

Emotional support.

And, legally,
you're not allowed to ask me that.

- Uh...



- Hey.
- Hey. Megan?

MEREDITH: I want you to stay calm.

Don't make any sudden movements.
Don't jump out of bed.

I don't want you to ruin my work.

What are you doing here?

I-I brought you someone.

Hi, Mama!

Oh, my God! [LAUGHS]

[SHRIEKING] Farouk! Oh, my God!

Oh, my God!

Oh, my God, oh, my God, oh, my God!

I missed you!

I missed you, too!



Oh, my God. Are you real? Are you real?

[LAUGHING] Are you really here?

Ohh. This is your Uncle Owen.

- Owen, this is Farouk.
- Hey. Hey. How you doing?


Thank you. Thank you
for looking after her.

Thank you.

[LAUGHING] Come here. Oh, my God.

[LAUGHS] Have you eaten anything?

You must be so tired.
Are you hungry?

- FAROUK: I'm hungry.
- The food here's terrible.

[Conversation continues indistinctly]


I can't find the operative report.
Did Koracick dictate...

I think I figured out
what you're looking for.

It was this.

This is what's missing.

I think you've been waiting
for the other shoe to drop,

for... something to go wrong.

And I think it might be
because, for years now,

something was wrong.

This thing was growing inside of you,

and you were in constant danger.

But now it's gone.

And you're safe.

And I think, for you, that might feel...

like something's wrong, but, uh...

You know, I'm... I'm sorry.
I thought I'd...


[Amelia breathes shakily]



- Hey.
- Hi.

Sorry again about last night.

Oh, please.
I shouldn't have had so much wine.

No, no, no. I actually really
appreciated what you had to say.

I appreciate, uh, you.

I appreciate you, too.

Hi, there.

Hey. Hi. Thank you so much
for last night.

Oh, Maggie,
I'm so glad you were there

to talk some sense into this one.

He's pretty sensible, I think.

Oh, he's like me.

My mom could talk to me
till she was blue in the face,

but if my sister told me something,

I would actually listen.

Let's do that again soon.

- Have a good night, then.
- Yeah. You too.

So, honey, how's it going?

Have you found
all your new interns yet?

Well, the older I get,
the more I dislike them.


Hey! Kit Cat!
You want to grab a drink?

Um, we have plans,
uh, my wife and... and I.

We don't want to miss our chance.

I-I'm not gonna be here much longer.

Well, you have to
come around more often.

Maybe you can do a lecture
a couple times a year, hmm?

[LAUGHING] I'm gonna
make that happen. [LAUGHS]


Really? "Kit Cat"?

You're that desperate to see him again?

Oh, honey, yes.
I like what he does to you.




Hey, so, I stocked the fridge
with all your favorites.

I set the thermostat to boiling,
just how you like it.

I want you to come home, Amelia.

Yeah, I figured, um, you would
take care of your sister,

and, uh, my sisters
would take care of me,

- and then...
- And then what?

And then I don't know. And it's scary.


You were coming to end it,
to leave me

when I told you that I was sick.

Listen. I was upset.
But I didn't know...

You were right.
I was awful to you.

You were right to want to leave.

You had a tumor.

- You married a tumor.
- I married you.

We don't know who that is anymore.

I don't know who I am.

So you don't have to do this now.

You can be free.
