We've got Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Bailey (Chanda Wilson) swapping monologues, we've got a patient blowing off McDreamy, and we've got Cristina (Sandra Oh) soliciting advice from a heart. What more could you want from an episode, anyway? Here are those lines and our other favorites from Grey's Anatomy Season 8, Episode 8: "Heart-Shaped Box."

10. Justine [to Derek]: "Between your voice and my leaky aneurysm, I'm having a bitch of a time focusing, so..."
Oh, annoyed by Derek's (Patrick Dempsey) voice, are you, Justine? Should we get April (Sarah Drew) in the room?

9. Bailey [to Meredith]: "This woman has lost a husband and a son in this hospital. I will not have another O'Malley lost under this roof."
Don't forget about almost losing one Callie O'Malley (Sara Ramirez). Oops, we mean Torres, of course. It's back to Torres now.

8. Teddy [to Henry]: "I don't want to spend ten years married to a med student."
Hear that sound? You know, that boom? That's Henry's dreams crashing and burning.

7. Mark: "Any idea what's going on with Avery? He seems so distant."
Alex: "Want me to put a note is his locker?"
Mark: "What's that?"
Alex: "Want me to suture in the graft?"
Mark: "No, I'll handle that."
Hah! We love snark, especially when it flies under the radar. Points to you, Karev (Justin Chambers).

6. Alex [to Meredith and Cristina]: "George is dead, and Izzie is gone, and we're all different."
Why do we even bother with episode recaps? Because Alex just summarized the last three seasons in eleven words.

5. Cristina: "Heart in a box, what should I put on my wish list? Heart in a box, what should I put on my sandwich?"
Not mayonnaise, surely. That heart has got her girlish figure to consider.

4. Meredith [to Bailey]: "Going to court tomorrow, to prove to a judge that's never met me that I'm a good person, a fit mother. I want my kid back so badly I'm racking my brain for anything that'll make him see me that way. I wanna dress the part, so I'm thinking my navy dress, but there's a button missing, and it shows too much cleavage. My charcoal pants have a hole in the ass. I've got one shot at this. I'm useless and frustrating, but I know how to do an ERCP, and I know when to double-check labs, and I know how to do a septoplasty. I'm not useless here."
No, she's very handy indeed. Whenever someone needs a baby kidnapped, she's the go-to gal.

3. Arizona [to Callie]: "Hey, look, coming out is important. It's everything... with your family and your friends? I'd kick your ass if you tried to hide me from them. But coming out to your dead ex-husband's super-Catholic mom? Not necessary. I mean, not for you. And certainly not for me. So it's okay."
Alright, Arizona (Jessica Capshaw), you've already won us over. You don't have to be this nice. Take a breather, girl!

2. Bailey [to Meredith]: "This woman worked so hard to raise her son, and then one day he just threw himself in front of a bus. I mean, yeah, yeah, he did it to save someone else, but... You work and work trying to teach your kids to do the right thing, and—and you wanna be so proud of them when they stand up for what they believe is right. But watching them destroy themselves in order to do it, to do what you taught them... it's — it's just maddening. You. You are maddening."
Well, shucks. You mean to tell us that Bailey has thought of Meredith like a daughter this whole time? Well, why didn't anyone tell us?! We just thought she was a hater.

1. Jackson: "So I have to walk away... from you, for me."
Lexie: "So you're picking Mark?"
Jackson: "I spent way too much time sabotaging my own career, Lex. Yeah, I'm picking Mark. Can you — can you tell me I shouldn't?"
And thus, another relationship ends with a whimper instead of a bang.
