ALEX: You could talk, you know, if you need to.
MEREDITH: I’m fine.
ALEX: You’ve said that word so many times today it doesn’t even sound like a word anymore. Just saying you can talk to me cause even if I repeat every word you say, no one around here likes me. They’ll just call me a liar and move on.
MEREDITH: Izzie likes you. You’re blushing.
ALEX: Shut up. Look, for what it’s worth, I don’t know how you’re still on your feet. If I found out my mom might have cancer I’d be under the bar right now.
MEREDITH: You want the ugly truth?
ALEX: What, you have an ugly truth? I never would have picked you to have an ugly truth.
MEREDITH: I’m more afraid she doesn’t have cancer.
ALEX: Well, liver cancer’s fast. Painful, but it’s fast and they give you morphine. They don’t give you morphine for Alzheimer’s.
MEREDITH: No, they don’t. What kind of person wishes their mother has cancer?
