8.06 Poker Face
Meredith: "Hi, how is your day going?"
Derek: "Bad. My OR is a mess, my caseload is an exercise and boring."
Meredith: "You can't tell me because we can't talk about Neuro."
Derek: "Right. I know something else we can do instead." (he starts kissing her)
Meredith: "No kissing in the hospital."
Derek: "Why not? We don't work together anymore. You're just my wife." (he kisses her one more time) "Okay. Now you can go."
Meredith: "You're home already?"
Derek: "Yes. It's the advantage for boring caseload."
Meredith: "Did you day get any better?"
Derek: "Yes. If you count the fried chicken sandwich I got at the cafeteria."
Meredith: "Any interesting cases tomorrow?"
Meredith: "No work talk. I'll be right back."
Derek: "I had a good day. So good in fact I want to break our rule and tell you about it."
Derek: "You're sure?"
As babies, we were easy. One cry meant you were hungry, another you were tired. It's only as adults that we become difficult. We start to hide our feelings, put up walls. It gets to the point when we never really know how anyone thinks or feels. Without meaning to, we become masters of disguise.
It's not always easy to speak your mind. Sometimes you need to be forced to do it. Sometimes it's better to just keep things to yourself though. Play dumb. Even when your whole body is aching to come clean. So you shut your mouth. Keep the secret. And find other ways to make yourself happy.
