2.20 Band Aid Covers the Bullet Hole

Meredith: So- just friends.
Derek: Just friends. You know, technically you tell friends stuff, after which we share the moments of our lives.
Meredith: I'll keep that in mind next time I do a horrible thing.
Derek: No, really, it's OK. I don't want to know. Even if I beg, don't tell me.

Meredith: There's a line, between friends and not friends. And if I tell you this, if I tell you this horrible thing, then you have to react as my friend. Not as my not friend.
Derek: I can do that. Alright, tell me what's wrong, I'll tell you how to fix it.
Meredith: Ok, are you ready?
Derek: I'm ready.
Meredith: Ugh... I slept with George... and it was a horrible mistake and now everything has changed and I don't know how to repair it. I don't even know where to start, but I just know that I have to and... Say something friendly.
Derek: You tell him that. You find George and you apologize.
Meredith: That's what everyone's saying but he won't listen.
Derek: Tell him again. You tell him you're sorry. Just tell him again and again and again until he listens.
Meredith: How do I do that?
Derek: You do what I do. Use the elevator.
