|GREY'S ANATOMY OPENING QUOTE:|
|When you get sick, it starts out with a single bacteria; one lone nasty intruder. Pretty soon, the intruder duplicates, becomes two. Then those two become four become eight. Then, before your body knows it, it's under attack. It's an invasion. The question for a doctor is, once the invaders have landed. Once they've taken over your body, how the hell do you get rid of them? |
|GREY'S ANATOMY ENDING QUOTE:|
|What do you do when the infection hits you, when it takes over? Do you do what your supposed to and take your medicine or do you learn to live with that thing and hope that somebody it goes away. Or do you just give up entirely and let it kill you.|
