"Give Peace a Chance" is the seventh episode of the sixth season of the
American television medical drama Grey's Anatomy, and the show's 109th
episode overall. Written by Peter Nowalk and directed by Chandra Wilson,
the episode was originally broadcast on the American Broadcasting
Company (ABC) in the United States on October 29, 2009. Grey's Anatomy
centers around a group of young doctors in training. In this episode,
Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey, pictured) performs an operation on
a hospital technician's "inoperable" tumor, despite the objections of
the chief of surgery, Dr. Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr.). The
episode was designed to revolve around Dempsey's character. Mark Saul,
Jesse Williams, and Nora Zehetner returned as guest stars, while Faran
Tahir made his first and only appearance. Viewed by 13.74 million
people, "Give Peace a Chance" won Wilson an NAACP Image Award for
directing, and was generally well received among critics.

Wikiquote quote of the day:
There is a certain nobility and dignity in combat soldiers and medical
aid men with dirt in their ears. They are rough and their language gets
coarse because they live a life stripped of convention and niceties.
Their nobility and dignity come from the way they live unselfishly and
risk their lives to help each other.
