Alex and Lucy clash when they end up treating a patient together.



"One of the hardest lessons as a doctor is learning to prioritize. We're trained to do all we can to save life and limb but if cutting off a limb means saving a life we learn to do it without hesistation. It's not an easy lesson to learn and it always comes down to one question: what are the stakes, what do we stand to gain or lose. At the end of the day we're just gamblers, trying not to bet the farm."
"Surgery is a high stakes game. No matter how high the stakes sooner or later you're going to have to go with your gut and maybe, just maybe, that'll take you right where you were meant to be in the first place."
- Meredith Grey
