Daly, Tim:What's wrong with flirting?
Dr. Addison Shepherd:What's wrong with it? What's wrong? What's wrong is that I don't have time for it. I am out of time. I missed my chance. And now I only have two eggs left. I might as well have no eggs left. I am egg-less. Naomi says she's dried up, I'm the one who's dried up. I'm all barren and dried up. And I've clearly been wasting my time on men. I mean, I might as well take up hobbies or something. Like needelpoint, or collectiong those little ceramic dolls. Because that's what dried up women do, they do needlepoint. They don't waste their time flirting with men who clearly only want to get laid. They do not waste their time... telling overly personal... information... about their eggs to total strangers, oh my god, I'm sorry.
[She gets up to leave but Pete stops her]
Dr. Addison Shepherd:What are you doing?
Daly, Tim:I'm going to kiss you. I'm going to kiss you with tongue. I'm going to kiss you so you feel it. Ok?
Dr. Addison Shepherd:Ok.
[they kiss deeply and pull apart]
Dr. Addison Shepherd:Why'd you do that?
Daly, Tim:To remind you... that you're not dried up.
[he starts to leave]

about Meredith's character, 16 December 2008
Author: arezoog_1984 from Islamic Republic of Iran

I started hating Meredith's character since the middle of season 2.this session I hated her even more.her mother died a few sessions ago.It was as if nothing has happened.She started calling her 'my dead mother' with such lack of emotion.this session her father's wife dies and she bursts into tears!this is ridiculous!she is such a stranger worshiper.And I detest these people as unfortunately my aunt is a one herself. Secondly,in the previous season she called her mother a whore,though this is she herself who sleeps with every man she feels like and hurts every body's feelings and ruins others lives.And after all she justifies herself!she thinks she's a saint! It's really a pity that such an invidious character is the leading role of this really good movie. I hope that Ellen Pompeo herself,doesn't resemble Meredith at all!
