Quotes

Dr. Callie Torres: [to Bailey about Derek] Have you tried calling him?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: About a hundred times.
Dr. Callie Torres: Mmm.
[Bailey gives Callie a look]
Dr. Callie Torres: No. N - Oh, you... You want me to go to the woods? No. I don't do woods. The woods are dirty and there are many, many bugs. What am I going to say to the guy? I barely know him.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: You don't have to know him. You're both surgeons. You've been through the same war. Look, just remind him that we've all been there, we all came back.
Dr. Callie Torres: [sighs] You're kind of a bully, you know that?

Beautiful, Touching and Wonderful.
28 March 2009 | by See all my reviews

I just don't have enough words to describe this amazing episode.

All the sadness, hopefulness, truth and beauty... I just spent the whole episode amazed with was surging on the screen.

The story of the patient with a deformed face was important and at the same time hopeful (besides the make-up is incredible) and the actor who plays the character is great as well.

The Derek plot(necessary for a long time) gets to a moving edge and will probably continue until this season finale.

But what's most wonderful in this episode is Izzie. Who'd say that such a supporting character would become the fifth season's dramatic factor? Katherine Heigl, Sandra Oh and Patrick Dempsey are perfect and I hope that the three of them get Emmy nominations.

And finally it's so great to see that Grey's Anatomy's writers found the inspiration to (hopefully) turn this season finale into the best one ever.

Just perfect.

Rating: 10 out of 10.
