One family goes from a funeral to the hospital in Grey’s Anatomy season 13 episode 3, and it just gets worse from there — but could they also be due for a miracle? Elsewhere, Ben uses Andrew’s injuries to teach Tuck a lesson, and Meredith still doesn’t tell Maggie about Riggs.  

Here are the best quotes from “I Ain’t No Miracle Worker.”

Grey’s Anatomy Recap: Four Dilemmas and a Funeral>>>

“You’re sex-rich. It is not polite to brag in front of people who are sex-poor. Some of us are barely making ends meet.”

Greys 1303 ATM.pngAmelia: “Marriage is like a bed and breakfast in Vermont. With sex.”
Meredith: “Until you have kids.”
Amelia: “And when I want the sex, I don’t have to get out of bed and drive to the sex. I just roll right over.”
Maggie: “Can you stop it?”
Amelia: “I don’t want to stop it. Married sex is dirtier than I expected.”
Maggie: “Not the sex. The bragging. You’re flashing your money after going to the ATM. We get it. You’re sex-rich. It is not polite to brag in front of people who are sex-poor. Some of us are barely making ends meet.”

“It’s a hot mess of art.”
“There’s a seven-car pile-up in the pit … This is too good to miss. Someone ran into a funeral procession just before it reached the cemetery. A funeral procession. Limos hitting limos hitting limos and then all the limos smashed into the hearse. Doors cracked open, casket went airborne. A flying corpse! This is all one family. It’s art, Miranda. It’s a hot mess of art.”
– Ben, in awe of the accident

“I did, but they’re taking their sweet time. There’s not a lot of urgency in that job, I think.”
Webber: “The patient in this bed is deceased.”
Stephanie: “I know.”
Webber: “Not just deceased. Embalmed.
Stephanie: “The deceased, Peter, it was his funeral. The hearse and the coffin got totaled, and the EMTs couldn’t just leave him in the streets.”
Webber: “Call the morgue.”
Stephanie: “I did, but they’re taking their sweet time. There’s not a lot of urgency in that job, I think.”

“Hearing it one more time isn’t going to help anything or change anything or fix me or turn back time, so just shut up and back off, please.”

Greys 1303 Alex.pngArizona: “Your job is to take care of children. You want to throw your life away? Or your career? The career that I helped you build? I trained you. I had your back and I always pushed for you, no matter what anybody said.”
Alex: “I know!”
Arizona: “Alex!”
Alex: “I know all of this. You can’t tell me anything I haven’t already heard from Bailey or Mer or Jo or frankly, the state of Washington. And hearing it one more time isn’t going to help anything or change anything or fix me or turn back time, so just shut up and back off, please.”

“She’s my sister. You think I like telling her she can’t have the good thing?”
Meredith: “She’s my sister. You think I like telling her she can’t have the good thing?”
Riggs: “Then let’s just come clean, tell her why. It’ll feel better. It’ll feel really good.”
Meredith: “Why don’t you just focus on your patient’s hemothorax?”
Riggs: “The good thing.”
Meredith: “Excuse me.”
Riggs: “You called me a good thing.”
Meredith: “Forget I said it.”

“No, just apples. It was about Wilson, it was about a girl. How is that not personal?”
Arizona: “A felony?”
Owen: “I know.”
Arizona: “I mean, he did beat him up really bad.”
Owen: “Yeah, he did.”
Arizona: “Then again, you punched a cardio surgeon in the hospital hallway and nobody says a word.”
Owen: “Apples and oranges!”
Arizona: “And yet Alex is charged with a felony assault.”
Owen: “Apples and oranges! Riggs and I, it was personal.”
Arizona: “No, just apples. It was about Wilson, it was about a girl. How is that not personal?”

“Well, now you’re just a bloated corpse.”
Meredith: “It’s possible to hate you, you know?”
Riggs: “What?”
Meredith: “You’re easy to hate. I hated you when we met.”
Riggs: “And now?”
Meredith: “Well, now you’re just a bloated corpse.”

“Be a sister, sister.”

Greys 1303 sister.png“It’s like she doesn’t want to hear it. At all. Like I’m annoying her. Which, maybe I am, but be a sister, sister. I mean, if it was her, and she was craving something that she couldn’t have, I would commiserate. I would at least listen.”
– Maggie to Amelia about Meredith

“With three, there was balance. Now it’s chaos.”
Maggie: “I wish I was as good as Mer at forgetting things. My life would be a lot easier if I was.”
Amelia: “Okay, she does not forget things. She buries them. She thinks they’re gone, but trust me, they are not gone. They’re gonna come back. They always come back. See, this is the problem with me moving out. With three, there was balance. Now it’s chaos.”

“I love my job.”
– Stephanie, after a woman they pronounced dead comes back to life

“When we tell a family a patient is dead, I prefer we be correct! It’s a low, low bar for a physician.”
Bailey: “She was dead?”
Amelia: “Yes.”
Bailey: “And now she’s no longer dead.”
Amelia: “Also yes.”
Stephanie: “We saw her flatline and she’s not dead.”
Maggie: “Lazarus syndrome. Spontaneous return of circulation after failed attempts at resuscitation.”
Webber: “Or a miracle. You can’t rule it out.”
Bailey: “When we tell a family a patient is dead, I prefer we be correct! It’s a low, low bar for a physician.”
 
“He knocks at the door, says he forgot his keys and he’s sorry for being gone so long.”

Greys 1303 knock.pngRiggs: “You ever have that dream?”
Meredith: “What dream?”
Riggs: “The miracle dream. I’d roll over in bed, and there she was, asking me to go make coffee. So real. Then I’d wake up.”
Meredith: “No, never had that dream … A knock at the door.”
Riggs: “Sorry?”
Meredith: “He knocks at the door, says he forgot his keys and he’s sorry for being gone so long.”

“Mom’s good. I mean, you killed her but she’s really good now.”
– Morgan to Kara, about their mother who came back to life
