Thursdays 9:00 PM on ABC

A statuesque blonde, Isobel "Izzie" Stevens put herself through medical school by modeling. Underwear. Wow.

When this fact is publicized by Dr. Alex Karev, who pinned pictures of her up in the locker room, Izzie flew off the handle. She later warmed up to Alex, however, and dated him briefly before catching him sleeping with a nurse and breaking it off. They remain friends, though.

At first, Izzie butted heads with Meredith over the latter's relationship with Dr. Shepherd. Izzie initially believed it was a plot for Dr. Grey to get ahead of her fellow interns, but the two have become good friends. They live in the same house, one that was also inhabited by George until the most recent episode.

When meeting a pregnant teenage girl from her hometown (outside Seattle), Izzie revealed that she, too, had a daughter at 16. Her daughter, who is now 12, was adopted and now lives in Santa Barbara, Calif. She made an appearance in Season Three, needing a bone marrow transplant from Izzie to stay alive. They did not communicate, however, as the girl's parents handled everything.

Izzie first showed an interest in surgery involving infants and young children, the specialty of Dr. Addison Shepherd. But she was deemed too emotional, a fact driven home when she fell in love with everyone's favorite heart patient, Denny Duquette. In her illegal attempt to get him a transplant, Izzie risked her entire medical career. While her efforts were successful, Denny died, and her career nearly followed suit.

Stevens eventually recovered from her loss, however, and after a probationary period, regained form as a surgeon, especially during a big ferry disaster. Denny also left her $8 million, which she used to open a free clinic at Seattle Grace. Unlucky in love, she became convinced she loves George as Season Three drew to a close. They hooked up one evening when drunk. How will this play out?

Stay tuned.

Izzie Stevens Quotes

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.

Minister: Dearly beloved. We are gathered here today to celebrate the wedding of Alexander Michael Karev and Isobel Katherine Stevens. This is a sacred right. An ancient right. As Isobel and Alex prepare to join their lives, it is important to understand that everyone present has played a part in shaping their lives. And, will continue to play a vital role in their continuing future. And thus, we are here not only to witness their vows to each other, but to bestow upon them our blessing. And, now the couple will read their vows.
Izzie: Oh, we didn't write anything.
Alex: No, wait. I have something I wanna say. Today's the day my life begins. All my life I've been just me. Just a smart mouth kid. Today I become a man. Today I become a husband. Today I become accountable to someone other than myself. Today I become accountable to you. To our future. To all the possibilities that a marriage has to offer. Together, no matter what happens, I'll be ready. For anything. For everything. To take on life, to take on love. To take on possibility and responsibility. Today Izzie Stevens, our life together begins. And I for one can't wait.
Izzie: I love you. (kisses him)
Minister: Ahem, not yet!
Alex: Hurry up!
Minister: By the power vested in me, by god and the state of Washington, I now pronounce you husband and wife.
Izzie: Now?
Minister: Now.
(Izzie and Alex kiss)

BFF 2 Dr.Alex (can't stop giggling!!!) :P


What is the hometown of Izzy??

wie heißt Izzys Heimatstadt??
Danke :)


Bring Izzy Back the show!!! Its just not the same without her!!!


Izzie was there from the very beginning. Izzie is/was one of the wonderful characters that made this show so amazing. Grey's Anatomy is maybe still Grey's Anatomy but for sure not as GREAT as it was before. Izzie is the only and true love of Alex Karev. He will never ever love anyone like he loved her and same with Iz. They're meant to be together. And heck, I miss the realitionship between them. I miss the friendship between Izzie and George. I miss the funny scenes between Izzie and Meredith; okay, rather between EVERYONE. The SGH changed Izzie, but Izzie also changed the SGH and everyone around her. And that's good. Because she's good. No wait, she's fantastic. And bcuz anyone said she won't return, I'm still hoping. It's not hopeless. Yeah, because Iz is a BIG part of GA. So, who says she won't come back? I believe it. I hope it. I want it. I need it. >Iz, we love you, come back

Guado still in his mouth the taste of that kiss and remember a story full of love and desire only a nod and then staring at the road and only remnants of the two memorabilia and anything else is possible to forget our first meeting you simply arrived and I asked almost nothing and in a moment the two got involved too but after awhile that goodbye, nothing else was lost and our love was consumed entirely forgotten as a cigarette ash on the edge of some of it all was this longing and stored in two recollections are left and nothing izzi and george
