A drama centered on the personal and professional lives of five surgical interns and their supervisors.
Dr. Cristina Yang: If I miss a real procedure because of this case, they're gonna
call me 007 because I killed you.
Dr. Meredith Grey: You're my teacher's teacher. And my teacher.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: I'm your sister. I'm your daughter.
Dr. George O'Malley: 007. They're calling me 007, aren't they?
Izzie & Meredith: No-one's calling you 007.
Dr. George O'Malley: I was on the elevator and Murphy whispered 007.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Okay, how many times are we going to go through this, George?
Five, ten? Give me a number or else I'm gonna hit you.
Dr. George O'Malley: Murphy whispered 007 and everyone laughed.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: He wasn't talking about you.
Dr. George O'Malley: Are you sure?
Dr. Meredith Grey: Would we lie to you?
Dr. George O'Malley: Yes!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Here, my share of the grocery money. When are you going?
Dr. George O'Malley: Tonight.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Okay. Seriously, George. Please don't…
Dr. George O'Malley: Yeah, could we not talk about it here?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: What? Tampons?
Dr. George O'Malley: Did you not hear a word I said?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You're a man, we know.
[everyone in the room starts to laugh]
Dr. Alex Karev: Talk about shrinking the salamander.

Dr. George O'Malley: There needs to be some rules.
Dr. Meredith Grey: So, what we can walk around in our underwear on alternate
Tuesdays? Or you could see bras, but not panties? Or are you talking Amish rules?
Because if you think you're gonna get Izzie to cover herself…
Dr. George O'Malley: The amount of flesh exposed is not the point. You have to do
something, it's your house.
Dr. Meredith Grey: It's my mother's house.
Dr. George O'Malley: Meredith!
Dr. Meredith Grey: Do you like Izzie? Is that was this is about? You have a crush
Dr. George O'Malley: Izzie? No! I don't like Izzie. Izzie? No! She's not the one
I'm attracted to.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Not the one. So there's a one?
Dr. George O'Malley: Look, there just have to be some rules.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Mr. Humphrey? Mr. Humphrey, I'm sorry to wake you.
Mr. Humphrey: C'mon. What time is it?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Ten after five. I'm sorry, I just need to do a brief
exam. If you could just sit up for one moment.
[he sits up]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Thanks. This might be a little bit cold. So just take a
[he looks at her funny]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: If you could just take a deep breath.
Mr. Humphrey: You're not a doctor!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I'm Dr. Stevens, but you can call me Izzie. I'll be
helping Dr. Bailey with your biopsy this morning.
Mr. Humphrey: No, I don't think so. No.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Mr. Humphrey, this will just take a moment.
Mr. Humphrey: No, get me Dr. Bailey or Dr. Victor.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I- I just need to do a brief…
Mr. Humphrey: You don't need to do anything. Is this you?
[he shows Izzie a picture in a magazine of herself posing in lingerie]
Mr. Humphrey: Is this you? It is, isn't it? Get out of my room!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Mr. Humphrey…
Mr. Humphrey: Get out of my room!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [Sshe slams down the magazine] This is who I was. It
has nothing to do with who I am now. I'm a physician. A surgeon! And I am just as
qualified as any other intern on this floor. So you're just going to have to get
over your chauvinist crap and allow me to do my job.
Mr. Humphrey: I'm sure you're a very good doctor.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Then what is your problem?
Mr. Humphrey: Look, I fantasized about you. About the woman in this photo, whoever
she is. I'm not proud of it, but it's a fact. Do you know what they're gonna do to
me today? I have cancer. And they're gonna lift up my legs and expose me to the
world, and cut out my prostate, and my nerves. Effectively neuter me. So is it so
hard to understand that I don't want the woman who is in that photo to witness…
Dr. Meredith Grey: I want facts and until I get them my pants are staying on.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Denial. It's not just a river in Egypt. It's a freakin' ocean.
Dr. Meredith Grey: What was I to you? The girl you screwed to get over being
Dr. Derek Shepherd: You were like coming up for fresh air. It's like I was drowning
and you saved me. It's all I know.
Dr. Meredith Grey: It's not good enough.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I have an aunt who whenever she poured anything for you she
would say "Say when". My aunt would say "Say when" and of course, we never did. We
don't say when because there's something about the possibility, of more. More
tequila, more love, more anything. More is better.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You kissed me.
Dr. Alex Karev: Yes, I did.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Should we?… I mean, there's a discussion that we
could have… if you wanted to have one?
Dr. Alex Karev: Izzie, I kissed you, with tongue, and I plan to do it again and
again – get used to it. End of discussion.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Ok.
Dr. Cristina Yang: [about Burke] He's seen me naked a thousand times.
Dr. George O'Malley: Bad! Bad images in my head!
Dr. Cristina Yang: [about inviting Burke to Thanksgiving dinner] What was I
supposed to do? Blow off my boyfriend for Thanksgiving?
Dr. Cristina Yang: I tried to. He wouldn't blow. He's like something sticky that
won't blow off.
Dr. Meredith Grey: [about her PVS patient] But he was looking *at* me.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: He wasn't looking at you.
Dr. Meredith Grey: He was.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: The CT report says he wasn't.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Do you wanna argue with what I know I saw?
Dr. Derek Shepherd: No, Meredith, I don't want to argue with you any more.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Communication. It's the first thing we really learn in life.
Funny thing is, once we grow up, learn our words and really start talking the
harder it becomes to know what to say. Or how to ask for what we really need.
Dr. Addison Shepherd: I hate this freaking trailer!
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Fine then. No trout for you.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Eh, not a good time.
Dr. Arizona Robbins: you know what, you walk away from me again I swear I will grab
you by the hair and pull hard, I grew up will the name Arizona, I learned how to
play dirty on the playground.
Dr. Arizona Robbins: Hey, I thought you were in surgery?
Dr. Callie Torres: I'm on my way
Dr. Arizona Robbins: Have you talked to Bailey about this peds and Tucker thing?
Dr. Callie Torres: No, I've talked to Bailey about the army thing and George.
Dr. Arizona Robbins: Are you upset with me?
Dr. Callie Torres: ha, no I'm awesome.
Dr. Arizona Robbins: Calliope
Dr. Callie Torres: No, do not. Do not Calliope me. Ok, you said it was awesome.
George. Sweet, kind George, who can't even kill a fly is joining the army to go to
Iraq in the middle of a war and you said awesome
Dr. Arizona Robbins: It is AWESOME
Dr. Callie Torres: No it is not awesome, god who are you.
Katie Bryce: My head is full.
Dr. Meredith Grey: It's called thinking. Go with it.
Katie Bryce: You are so lost.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I am not lost. Okay?
Dr. Preston Burke: The only person that can keep a promise so big is God, and I
haven't seen him pick up a scalpel lately.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I wish there were a rulebook for intimacy. Some kind of guide to
tell you when you've crossed the line. It would be nice if you could see it coming,
and I don't know how you fit it on a map. You take it where you can get it, and
keep it as long as you can. And as for rules, maybe there are none. Maybe the rules
of intimacy are something you have to define for yourself.
Dr. George O'Malley: I know I'm not a lot of things that you've gone for in the
past – I know, but I would never leave you. I would never hurt you. And I will
never stop loving you…
Dr. Meredith Grey: If you knew this was your last day on Earth, how would you wanna
Dr. Meredith Grey: I think she's more of a "gentle stalker."
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Right. Well, let's hope she lives to "gently stalk" another
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [to Cristina] An intern was reassigned so he's mine now. Have
him shadow you for the day, show him how I do things.
Dr. Alex Karev: Alex Karev, nice to meet you.
Christina Yang: The pig who called Meredith a nurse. I hate you on principle.
Dr. Alex Karev: And you're the pushy, overbearing kiss ass. I hate you too.
Christina Yang: Oh, this should be fun then.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I am an evil mistress.
Dr. George O'Malley: But still… you look nice.
Dr. George O'Malley: [to Alex] You gave me syph!
Dr. Meredith Grey: They say practice makes perfect. Theory is, the more you think
like a surgeon, the more you become one. Better you get at remaining neutral,
clinical. Cut, suture, close. And the harder it becomes to turn it off. To stop
thinking like a surgeon and remember what it means to think like a human being.
Dr. Meredith Grey: To be a good surgeon, you have to think like a surgeon. Emotions
are messy. Tuck them neatly away and step into a clean, sterile room where the
procedure is simple. Cut, suture, close. But sometimes you're faced to a cut that
won't heal. A cut that rips its stitches wide open.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Surgeons are control freaks. With a scalpel in your hand, you
feel unstoppable. There's no fear, there's no pain. You're ten-feet tall and
bulletproof. And then you leave the OR. And all that perfection, all that beautiful
control, just falls to crap.
Dr. Alex Karev: For a kiss to be really good, you want it to mean something. You
want it to be with someone you can't get out of your head, so that when your lips
finally touch you feel it everywhere. A kiss so hot and so deep you never want to
come up for air. You can't cheat your first kiss. Trust me, you don't want to.
Cause when you find that right person for a first kiss, it's everything.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Four hundred years ago, another well-known English guy had an
opinion about being alone. John Donne. He thought we were never alone. Of course,
it was fancier when he said it. "No man is an island entire unto himself." Boil
down that island talk, and he just meant that all anyone needs is someone to step
in and let us know we're not alone. And who's to say that someone can't have four
legs. Someone to play with or run around with, or just hang out.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Goodbye, Derek.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Goodbye, Meredith.
Dr. Meredith Grey: How do you know when how much is too much? Too much too soon.
Too much information. Too much fun. Too much love. Too much to ask… And when is
it all just too much to bear?
Dr. George O'Malley: [talking to himself] Oh, hi, chief. Nope, not much going on,
well, other than your intern chief making out with my friend in the stairwell, but
hey… sponge duty sucks.
Dr. Meredith Grey: [walks up beside him] Talking to yourself now?
Dr. George O'Malley: Yes. No.
Dr. George O'Malley: Damn it. I'm a bad sponge. A leaky sponge. I'm gonna leak all
the wrong secrets. I'm a bad liar. I can't even lie about talking to myself.
Dr. Addison Shepherd: [Addison is annoyed that Derek has just caught a trout and
has brought it inside] Why did you bring a trout into the trailer?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I'm a pretty girl.
Dr. Richard Webber: What?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I'm not being arrogant, it's just… it's just kinda a
fact. For a long time I made a career for my looks, so I get it. I'm a pretty girl.
And not from a certain angle way, in an obvious way. It's the blonde thing, and the
big boobs thing. Big boobs are key to obvious pretty, if you know what I'm saying.
Dr. Richard Webber: Dr. Stevens…
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: That's how men see me. I'm not a smart girl or an
interesting girl. I'm a pretty girl. The blonde and the boobs confuses guys into
thinking that I'm someone else. And I'm used to it. I'm used to them walking away
when they realize… but then Denny goes and asks me to marry him.
Dr. Richard Webber: Is that why you cut the wires?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: He doesn't make me feel like I'm a pretty girl. He
makes me feel like… like me. I think he might know me. And so if I did cut the L
-Vad wire, and I'm not saying I did, but if I did then no. I don't feel guilty. And
I know that I should and I would if it were anybody else. But I can't feel anything
Dr. Callie Torres: Hey, I've got a plan to stop George. Are you in?
Dr. Arizona Robbins: Stop George from what?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: He joined the army
[looks at Callie]
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Yes I'm in
Dr. Arizona Robbins: Bailey, no I'm talking to you.
[Turns to Callie]
Dr. Arizona Robbins: Why are you trying to stop him?
Dr. Callie Torres: Because he joined the army.
Dr. Arizona Robbins: And?
Dr. Callie Torres: And because he's my ex-husband. And because I know his mom, and
I love his mom, and normally Izzy would talk sense to him, but she's got cancer and
kind of a bad mental deficient so it's on me to stop him.
Dr. Arizona Robbins: why would you wanna stop him?
Dr. Callie Torres: Because he joined the army, don't you think that's a problem?
Dr. Arizona Robbins: I think that's awesome.
Dr. Callie Torres: Awesome!
Dr. George O'Malley: Uh, Mr. Mackie I can't go out with you. You're not my type, I
mean, you're a guy.
Lloyd Mackie: George, I knew you weren't gay.
Dr. George O'Malley: I don't think you understand. Me – gonads! You – ovaries!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Oh, that reminds me. We are out of tampons.
Dr. George O'Malley: You're parading through the bathroom in your underwear, while
I'm naked in the shower!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Will you add it to your list, please?
Dr. George O'Malley: What?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Tampons!
Dr. Meredith Grey: To the list. It's your turn.
Dr. George O'Malley: I am a man! I don't buy girl products. I don't want to see you
walking in while I'm in the shower. And I don't wanna see you in your underwear!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: It doesn't bother me, okay? Look at me in my underwear,
George. Take your time, it's no big deal.
Dr. Alex Karev: Morning, Dr. Model.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Dr. Evil Spawn.
Dr. Alex Karev: [he sees a tattoo on her lower stomach] Ooooh, nice tat. Do they
airbrush that out for the catalogs?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I don't know. What do they do for the 666 on your
Mr. Levangie: I know it's not perfect, but it's life. Life is messy sometimes.
Dr. George O'Malley: This shift is a marathon, not a sprint. Eat.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I can't.
Dr. George O'Malley: You should eat something.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You try eating after performing 17 rectal exams. The
Nazi hates me.
Dr. George O'Malley: The Nazi's a resident. I have attendings hating me.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: You wanna tell me what that was all about?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Nothing. He's probably just crazy or something.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Bethany Whisper.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: What?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Bethany Whisper. I did a new Bethany Whisper lingerie
ad, he saw it in a magazine.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: You had time to pose for magazines?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No, it was last year, it just came out.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: So, because he saw you in a thong…
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No! It was not a thong!
Dr. Miranda Bailey: You're hiding out in the hallway?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I think it might be easier if you assign another
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Izzie, it's not in your job description. You are a doctor. He
is a patient. He's your patient! Biopsy these! If they come back positive, I expect
to see you in surgery. You're on this! You hear me?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You said before, *I am not your sister*. Do you feel
like I was emasculating you?
Dr. George O'Malley: No. I'm too masculine to be emasculated.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I'm sorry.
Dr. George O'Malley: Guess you put Dr. Model to rest?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Guess I did.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Dr. Victor, I'm sorry, but these are viable nerves. We should
Dr. Victor: It will take at least an hour longer. And we might not get it all.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [to George] You know they call him, *limp Harry*.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: But his prognosis with chemo is nearly as good, and frankly if
you're worried about missing tee time, I'll be more than happy to finish.
[Izzie enters the O.R]
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Dr. Stevens?
Dr. Victor: Can we help you?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I'm sorry, Dr. Bailey. Dr. Victor, I agree with her.
You just can't… You have to save the nerves.
Dr. Victor: What?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: The nerves. You have to save them.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Dr. Stevens, I can handle this.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No, you told me the most important thing is giving the
patient what they want. What Humphrey wants is his erection.
Dr. Victor: [to Dr. Bailey] She's yours. You get her out.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: I can't do that, sir. You know how these young puppies are.
Dr. Victor: I'm going to tell Richard about both of you.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: You do that. In the meantime, why don't we pretend it's you on
this table, and give this a try.
Jane Burke: Do you know when to walk away? Do you know when not to take less than
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Every intern wants to perform their first surgery. That's not
your job. Do you know what your job is? To make your resident happy. Do I look
happy? No! Why? Because my interns are whiney. You know what will make me look
happy? Having the code team staffed, having the trauma pages answered, having the
weekend labs delivered and having someone down in the pit doing the sutures. No-one
holds a scalpel until I'm so happy I'm Mary Freaking Poppins.
Dr. George O'Malley: You know Joe?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Oh, yeah. I was the only female intern my year. I didn't know
anybody and nobody knew me except Joe. He knew me.
Dr. George O'Malley: Oh. So you and Joe…?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: All you people ever think about is how to get into somebody's
pants. You're nasty.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: That's why you got syphilis.
Dr. George O'Malley: Do you remember when he wallpapered the hospital with pictures
of you in your underwear?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Yeah. Yeah, I do.
Dr. Alex Karev: It was before I knew you.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Pain, you just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its
own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers,
you just breath deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time pain can be
managed but sometimes the pain gets you where you least expect it. Hits way below
the belt and doesn't let up. Pain, you just have to fight through, because the
truth is you can't outrun it and life always makes more.
Dr. Meredith Grey: There's something to be said about a glass half full. About
knowing when to say when. I think it's a floating line. A barometer of need and
desire. It's entirely up to the individual. And depends on what's being poured.
Sometimes all we want is a taste. Other times there's no such thing as enough, the
glass is bottomless. And all we want, is more.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Maybe we're not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude has
nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for
what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to
be human. Maybe we're thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we're
thankful for the things we'll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we
have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate.
Dr. Alex Karev: Here's the thing – I like your rack.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: God, what is wrong with you? Why do you have to be so –
what is wrong with you?
Dr. Alex Karev: I like your rack and I'd want them around if I could have them,
trust me I would, but it wouldn't be the end of the world if you got rid of them…
because really, I'd want *you*.
[Izzie slaps him]
Dr. Alex Karev: Ow! What was that for?
[she kisses him]
Dr. Meredith Grey: No-one likes to lose control, but as a surgeon there's nothing
worse. It's a sign of weakness, of not being up to the task. And still there are
times when it just gets away from you. When the world stops spinning and you
realize that your shiny little scalpel isn't gonna save you. No matter how hard you
fight it, you fall. And it's scary as hell. Except there's an upside to
freefalling. It's the chance you give your friends to catch you.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Okay, here it is, your choice… it's simple, her or me, and I'm
sure she is really great. But Derek, I love you, in a really, really big pretend to
like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio
over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you.
So pick me, choose me, love me.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: What self-respecting surgeon wears salmon-colored
Dr. Alex Karev: Why are you helping me?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [yells] 'Cause it's what Jesus would freaking do!
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Do you happen to know what time of year neurosurgeons are the
busiest, Dr. Stevens?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: There's a time of year?
Dr. Derek Shepherd: There's no hard or fast rule, but brain injuries tend to pile
up around the holidays. Like our friend here. Folks fall off their roofs while they
string up lights. Or they go skating for the first time in a decade and break their
heads open. And every year people drive through blizzards to get to parties where
they kiss germ-infected strangers under poisonous mistletoe. And then they get so
drunk that they smash their heads through their windshield on their way home. Like
I said, there's no hard or fast rule.
Denny Duquette: I've been lying in this bed for close to a year, and I've had a lot
of time to look back on my life. And the things that I remember best – those are
the things I wasn't supposed to do and I did them anyway. The thing is, life is too
damn short to be following these rules.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Look at this. Everybody wants a life without pain. And what
does it get you? She needs to be on a poster somewhere to remind people, pain is
there for a reason.
Dr. Richard Webber: Just shut up and count backwards already.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [to Izzie] Course, now you know, every time he gets a rise,
he'll be thinking of you.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [to Derek and Meredith, who are in the passenger seat of his
car] You mind moving this tailwagon? You blocking me in.
Dr. Preston Burke: So, I have a question to ask. I checked the schedule and I
noticed that both you and I are off tonight. I made reservations. I have a favorite
Dr. Cristina Yang: None of those were questions.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Even George manages to get some action.
Dr. George O'Malley: Correction: George got some syphilis.
Dr. George O'Malley: I think you're taking some risks. I think you'll find yourself
in some guy's basement being ordered to put the lotion on the skin or you'll get
the hose again.
Dr. Meredith Grey: The key to surviving a surgical internship is denial. We deny
that we're tired, we deny that we're scared, we deny how badly we want to succeed.
And most importantly, we deny that we're in denial. We only see what we want to see
and believe what we want to believe, and it works. We lie to ourselves so much that
after a while the lies start to seem like the truth. We deny so much that we can't
recognize the truth right in front of our faces.
Dr. Meredith Grey: As surgeons, there are so many things we have to know. We have
to know we have what it takes. We have to know how to take care of our patients…
and how to take care of each other. Eventually, we even have to figure out how to
take care of ourselves. As surgeons we have to be in the know. But as human beings,
sometimes it's better to stay in the dark, because in the dark there may be fear,
but there's also hope.
Dr. Meredith Grey: At the end of the day, there are some things you just can't help
but talk about. Some things we just don't want to hear, and some things we say
because we can't be silent any longer. Some things are more than what you say,
they're what you do. Some things you say cause there's no other choice. Some things
you keep to yourself. And not too often, but every now and then, some things simply
speak for themselves.
Dr. Meredith Grey: When you were a kid, it was Halloween candy. You hid it from
your parents and you ate it until you got sick. In college, it was the heavy combo
of youth, tequila and well, you know. As a surgeon, you take as much of the good as
you can get because it doesn't come around nearly as often as it should. 'Cause
good things aren't always what they seem. Too much of anything, even love, is not
always a good thing.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: I'm cooking the trout outside the trailer.
Dr. Addison Shepherd: I still hate the freaking trailer.
