Quotes

Dr. Miranda Bailey: [to Richard] Bailey: I've lost Hunt and Torres.
[Richard stares at her]
Dr. Miranda Bailey: See, I sent them to get Shepherd and I never heard from them again. I was trying to solve the Shepherd situation for you, sir but it appears I've somehow made it three times worse. So, I'm telling you and my next move I believe is that I'm gonna call the police because I'm half convinced there all dead... on a spit with a one arm man turning them into shish kebab's.
[Richard looks confused]
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Sir, it's my mind it just goes there...

Beautiful, Touching and Wonderful.
28 March 2009 | by cleverton_bezerraSee 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.
