Goofs

Izzie revealed to a patient that she got pregnant at 16, but gave her daughter up for adoption. Typically you would have to be 31 or 32 when beginning an internship after med school etc, which would make her daughter 16. However, Izzie tells her patient that her daughter is 11, which would make Izzie only 26 or 27. See more »

Quotes

Dr. Meredith Grey: In surgery there is a red line on the floor that marks the point where the hospital goes from being accessible to being off limits to all but a special few. Crossing the line unauthorized is not tolerated. In general, lines are there for a reason, for safety, for security, for clarity. If you choose to cross the line, you pretty much choose to do so at your own risk. So why is it that the bigger the line, the greater the temptation to cross it?
