Dr. Teddy Altman is the Head of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Seattle Grace.

She previously served in Iraq with Owen Hunt. Although a skilled surgeon, her teaching methods can appear somewhat unorthodox.

Her arrival at Seattle Grace, followed by her profession of love to Owen has caused some friction between Owen and his girlfriend, Cristina Yang.

In Season Seven, she is branching out with a new story line all her own, involving terminally ill patient Henry (Scott Foley)

Henry: Yeah, I wouldn't eat it if I were dying.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
