Cristina: Lexie, run it down for me.
Lexie: My legs and my pelvis are crushed…and I can’t feel my other arm so I’m not sure it’s even there anymore and my chest feels like it’s gonna explode so it’s probably a massive hemothorax.
Life changes in an instant. Turns on a dime.
CRISTINA: I’m sorry.
TEDDY: Oh, you don’t apologize. You hear me? You don’t blame yourself. You did every single thing that I would have done. You were me in that O.R. You were good and you did it right. He just… He just… (sobbing) He just died.

TEDDY: What’s up? You okay?
CRISTINA: When we brought your husband into the O.R., we originally thought we could go in with a bronchoscope and a laser, however, there was a lot of bleeding, so we had to open him up.
TEDDY: Wait. You— you— wait. No. Owen said that—
CRISTINA: When we opened him up, we saw that the tumour had eroded his pulmonary artery. Dr. Webber and I both used extraordinary measures.
CRISTINA: But we—
TEDDY: Uh, no. No, no.
CRISTINA: We used extraordinary measures, but his heart could not tolerate the excessive bleeding.
CRISTINA: He did not survive the surgery. I’m sorry.
TEDDY: You’re saying… (voice breaking) You’re saying, he’s dead.
TEDDY: Say it.
TEDDY: When you inform the family, you have to say it so that they know that it’s really happening. It’s the first thing that you’re taught. I never really thought about it… But now I get it and, um… Cristina… I need you… I need you to say it.
CRISTINA: Henry is dead.
TEDDY: Thank you.
