"There are some disasters you just don't see coming no matter how carefully you plan. A little surprise that changes everything. In surgery we call it a complication. In life it's a catastrophe."
"In surgery we call it a complication, a disruption, a glitch, a nasty surprise. It calls for extreme measures, you have to react quickly, try to catch up cos it came out of nowhere and it can take everything away."
- Meredith Grey
