Episode Quotes

Dr. Alex Karev: [to Mark] You got to eat more bacon.
Dr. Mark Sloan: What?
Dr. Alex Karev: You stop yourself from doing a lot of crap that you want to do in life. I mean, I'm probably dying now and I'm telling you, you gotta eat more bacon. Have more sex.
Dr. Mark Sloan: Okay, I will. I'll eat more bacon, but you gotta hang in there, 'cause she's gonna be back any minute. She had to go to the blood bank and back.
Dr. Cristina Yang: It's creepy quiet down here.
Dr. April Kepner: He's down here.
Dr. Cristina Yang: No. He's not down here.
Dr. April Kepner: Oh, God, he's down here and he's gonna come out and shoot us.
Dr. Cristina Yang: [frees herself from April's grip] Will you shut up? You're freaking me out and I don't have time to be freaked out right now. Mer is a mess, Derek is a mess, you are a mess and I am in charge. And I say that no one is down here.
Dr. Jackson Avery: [opens up a door which makes April and Cristina jump] You're not supposed to be walking around down here.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Damn it, Jackson.
Dr. Jackson Avery: Is that your blood? Are you okay?
Dr. Cristina Yang: No. No... I'm fine. I'll go get Altman.
Dr. Jackson Avery: Altman's not down here.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Go get Hunt then.
Dr. Jackson Avery: They left.
Dr. Cristina Yang: What, they left? Okay, you know what? Someone just shot Derek. He's got a GSW to the chest and he needs surgery right now. Tell me there is an attending on this floor.
Dr. Jackson Avery: [looks at Cristina] April, in the OR behind there are two OR nurses and an anesthesiologist. Get them. Tell them to set up for a cardiac procedure.
Dr. April Kepner: What... what why? If we don't have a surgeon, what are we going to do?
Dr. Jackson Avery: [looks at Cristina] We have a surgeon.
Dr. April Kepner: Who's going to operate on Dr. Shepherd?
Dr. Cristina Yang: I am.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Get out of here, Meredith before he shoots you.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Do not die. Do you understand? I can't live without you. If you die, I die.
Dr. Cristina Yang: I called the police.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Oh, good, they're coming.
Dr. Cristina Yang: M... Mer... Mer, they're not gonna get here. They're not coming for us. They're not gonna get here in time. Oh, God... Mer, w-what are we gonna do?
Dr. Meredith Grey: [to Derek] I picked you! I choose you. You don't die on me!
Dr. Cristina Yang: Derek needs surgery. What do we do?
Dr. Meredith Grey: [to Derek] You stay awake. Stay awake! Derek! Derek, stay awake!


  • Goof (continuity error): When Derek asks Meredith to kiss him before his surgery, he is pale with dark circles under his eyes and almost white lips. Later, during surgery, his complexion seems far healthier.


  • In his state of disorientation, Alex Karev mistakes Lexie Grey for Izzie Stevens. Shonda planned to have Katherine Heigl (Izzie Stevens) return to the hospital and die in the shooting but Heigl never showed up for filming.
  • Every episode of the show is named after a famous song. "Death and All His Friends" is from the album 'Viva la Vida' by Coldplay.
  • This episode is the highest rated episode in the show's history thus far.
