Derek and I? We go way back. We grew up together, went to med school together. He’s… He’s kinda like my better half. Not the better-looking half, mind you.  So when I heard he got shot… Every day, we give bad news to patients. We tell them their loved ones are hurt, or dying or dead. And for the first time in my life, I understood what that feels like. It feels like shit.

What if she has her mother’s disease? Ellis was young when it started. Every time Meredith forgets her keys or asks what day of the week it is, I… When that million dollars run out investors are gonna throw money my way for the same reason I’m gonna throw everything I have to this trial, because their dad has it, or their wife. Breakthroughs don’t happen because of the medicine, real breakthroughs happen because someone is scared to death to stop trying.”
