Grey's Anatomy - "Dark Was the Night" voice over quotes

The voice overs (spoken by Meredith) that opened and closed this week's episode of Grey's Anatomy were particularly awesome.
Here they are in their entirety:

Episode Open:

 "I had a terrible day." We say it all the time. A fight with the boss, the stomach flu, traffic... That's what we describe as terrible when nothing terrible is happening...

Episode Close:

These are the things we beg for: a root canal, an IRS audit, coffee spilled on our clothes... When the really terrible things happen, we start begging a God we don't believe in to bring back the little horrors and take away this.

It seems quaint now, doesn't it? The flood in the kitchen, the poison oak, the fight that leaves you shaking with rage... Would it have helped if we could see what else was coming?

Would we have known that those were the best moments of our lives?


What an episode! Hats off to Shonda Rhimes and Debora Cahn who wrote this episode.

Such a shame we have to wait until January to see what happens next.

"Dark Was the Night" aired on Thursday, November 10, 2011 on ABC.
