GREY'S ANATOMY EPISODE RECAP


"STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN"

airdate: January 22, 2009
written by: Mark Wilding
directed by: Allison Liddi-Brown

Bailey grows desperate as a patient's condition becomes more and more dire. Everyone in the hospital is stepping up to try and find the boy a new organ donor, including Meredith, who considers a death row patient's wish to die before execution. Meanwhile, an injury leaves Mark in a compromising position in the OR and Cristina awkwardly avoids Owen.



GREY'S ANATOMY OPENING QUOTE:

I believe in heaven. I also believe in hell. I've never seen either but I believe they exist. They have to exist. Because without a heaven, without a hell, we're all just headed for limbo.



GREY'S ANATOMY ENDING QUOTE:
Heaven. Hell. Limbo. No-one even knows where we're going. Or what's waiting for us when we get there. But the one thing we can say, with absolute certainty, is that there are moments that take us to another place. Moments of Heaven on Earth. And maybe for now, that's all we need to know.


GREY'S ANATOMY QUOTES
Memorable Quotes, zingers and one-liners


  • Bailey: Stevens, I need a nod. A yawn or maybe a little burp. Something that lets me know you're awake and capable of keeping this boy alive.

  • Derek: She's in the car, she's in the car and she won't stop crying.
    Cristina: Did you propose?
    Derek: No. She went to William's execution

  • Mark: Little Grey.
    Lexie: It's not Little Grey. It's Lexie. And I'm sorry that I broke... that I hurt you. And I'm sorry that you're humiliated. But I'm not going anywhere. I've got a friend who is guarding the door. A good friend. And since no-one is going to be coming in, I'm now going to climb into bed with you and stroke your hair. Because that's what I like to have done for me, when I'm hurt.

When I saw the latest episode, I couldn't hear what Meredith said to Christina when she gets in the car.
Does somebody know what she said?
