Michael: Ladies and gentleman, I have some bad news. Meredith was hit by a car.
Oscar: Where?
Michael: It happened this morning in the parking lot. I took her to the hospital. And the doctors tried to save her, life, they did the best they could. And she is going to be OK.

I love my employees, even though I hit one of you with my car.
