Izzie: Oh Alex. What do you think? Looks real right? My mom sent it to me.

Lexie: ME! I GOT IT! I GOT IT! I GOT IT!
Alex: Is there some kind of time line on this. Or...
Doctor: Your wife is living with cancer Dr Karev. Right now, the cancer has stopped growing. With a cancer this aggressive, that's pretty stunning success. There's not time line. There's just... we watch it. We wait. We hope it doesn't start to grow again.

Doctor: That's it.
Izzie: Whatcha reading?
Alex: I have this patient I'm trying to diagnose. It's driving me nuts.
Izzie: So take a break, I miss you.
Alex: I'm right here.
Izzie: No you're not. You're here, but you're not here. And I miss you.
Alex: Iz, come on. I'm trying to work.
Izzie: I'm wishing for a brain tumor. I'm wishing all the time for a giant tumor that would just press down on my brain and make me hallucinate George. So that I could talk to him again, so I could laugh with him again. I miss him so much. I miss him all the time, and I just want to feel better. Even for a minute you know, I just want to be a person who isn't wishing for a brain tumor. Just for one minute. And, I can't drink because of the cancer meds, I don't do drugs, I can't even work right now. I don't have any distractions. I'm sad, and I miss George. So please, please, come inside and help me feel better.
Alex: "I miss George". Nice. Real seductive.
Alex: Dude, are you crying?
Arizona: I have authority issues. Walk away Karev!
Izzie: Oh my god Derek!
Derek: Hey, Hi!
Alex: Dude, get a room!
Izzie: On the stairs? Doesn't that hurt?
Meredith: Leave us alone, we're newly weds.
Izzie: A post it wedding does not make you newlyweds.
Derek: You know what... you're newlyweds too. You need your own space.
Alex: Dude, what are these?
Derek: Key's to my trailer, your new home. Enjoy.
Derek: Need to go home?
Derek: Did you eat?
Derek: Can you eat?
Derek: You should cry.
Derek: Maybe if you cry you'll feel better.
Meredith: I... you just... just you being here is... and don't say anything. Just be here. That... that helps. How are you?
Alex: Meredith, we need you.
Meredith: Ok, excuse me.
Izzie: (on phone) George, it's me. You know, I pretty much died not too long ago so I need you to call me back. Please. I know, I played the cancer card. I'm gross. Whatever.
Alex: I need to tell you something, and I need you to not panic. I need you to keep breathing. I need you to stay alive. I swear to god, I need you to stay alive. Alright?
Alex: O'Malley, he got in an accident. He's brain-dead.
Izzie: I'm sorry, what?
Callie: She's strong enough. She's strong enough, and you have to tell her.
Alex: Why? It can wait.
Callie: No! It can't. It can't wait because George's organs are not gonna be viable for long. If they want to use them they have to do it soon and I have to decide if they get to use them. And, I need Izzie to help me, because she's the one who should decide. She's who should decide. So that's one reason. And... the other reason is... Karev, if you let them unplug George without giving her a chance to say goodbye, I mean it, she will never forgive you. You have to tell her!
Alex: You can't tell her!
Alex: She coded in my arms. Out of nowhere, she died. Just... I'll tell her. I'll tell her when she gets stronger.
Izzie: (calls from her room) Alex...
Alex: You ok?
Izzie: I had a dream. He was in his uniform.
Izzie: George is gonna die in the army if we don't stop him. Hand me my phone, I need my phone.
