Dr. Meredith Grey: [About her roommates.] They're everywhere. All the time. Izzie's all perky and George does this thing where he's helpful and considerate. They share food and they say things, and they move things, and they breathe. Ugh. They're, like, happy
Dr. Cristina Yang: Kick them out.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I can't kick them out, they just moved in. I asked them to move in.
Dr. Cristina Yang: So what, you're just going to repress everything in some deep, dark, twisted place until one day you snap and you kill them?
