Callie Torres Quotes
Arizona: I'm so sorry. I just heard. I don't know what to say. Go home, you need to go home. You need to cry and scream and... When my brother died I ate doughnuts. I ate a lot of doughnuts and that helped some but, god. I don't... I don't know what to say.
Callie: His Mom wants me to decide about his organs. He lost his wallet in the accident. They don't know if he's a donor and now his Mom wants me to decide, and I can't. I can't tell her no, but I can't decide. I mean, we were only married for a few months.
Arizona: Ok. But, during those months you were the most important person in George's life.
Callie: No. I wasn't.
Callie: Mrs O'Malley, I'm so sorry. I...
Mrs. O'Malley: You were his wife. In God's eyes you're still his wife. You should decide about his organs. You should decide.
Mrs O'Malley: I can't. I can't do it Callie.
Mrs O'Malley: I can't do it. You understand? Ronnie and Jerry are off on some fishing expedition in Alaska and they're gonna come home and I have to tell them that Georgie... That's all I can do. It's all I can... I can't. I... I can't even see him like this. I can't. You need to do this for me. Can you do this for me?
Meredith: He grabbed my hand, and he squeezed it, and he wrote with his finger.
Derek: He wrote with his finger?
Meredith: You know... in my hand! He wrote 007.
Bailey: Wh... Give me... Ok... what did I write?
Bailey: No! No I did no write Joe!
Everyone: Are you serious? It could not be him? How do you know?
Mark: This is funny.
Richard: Did anyone try and call O'Malley? Can we get him on the phone?
Meredith: I'm telling you he squeezed my hand.
Bailey: Shut it! You don't get to talk anymore. You don't get to talk ever again.
Meredith: I could have sworn it was George.
Cristina: I got his voicemail.
Lexie: He's not answering.
Callie: He has a freckle on his right hand, it's shaped like Texas. I used to tease him about it. I'll check.
Lexie: Who said that was George? Why do we think that's George?
Callie: Meredith said... I don't know.
Lexie: That's not George. Look... look at his feet. Look how tall he is. That's not George.
Callie: I'm a superstar! A superstar with a scalpel!
Richard: Torres ...
Callie: No! Don't say my name. Do not. I am too big a star for you to say my name. I build arms out of nothing. And legs. Like God. And when I win the Harper Avery and every other prize there is, you will rue this day, Chief Webber. That's right. I said rue!
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.
Arizona: Maybe I don't understand people, I don't see things. So, maybe I just don't get what's going on with you or why you're so mad. But, I do think it's awesome. I think that George joining the army is awesome.
Callie: Um, shut up.
Arizona: Um, No. You asked me who I was. I am a person who thinks that what George is doing is dangerous, and terrifying, and brave. He's going to serve his country. He's going to risk his life to save the men and women who make it possible for you and I to sleep safely in our beds. I'm a person who thinks that, that is brave. And I am a person who stood in an airplane hanger, and watched them unload my brother's body in a coffin. And, all we got was a flag. My brother died over there because there weren't enough doctors Callie. So, for my money, George O'Malley is a patriot. He's a hero, and I am grateful that he exists. So yeah, the word I use is awesome. That's who I am.
Callie: (grabs her hand) I'm sorry.
Derek: How's the arm?
Mark: The nerves are still intact, I just have to reattach the vessels.
Callie: You ready for me?
Owen: Almost done with the major internal crush injuries, the pelvis will be all yours in a minute. Get me some more laps please.
Mark: You think you'd do it? Step in front of a bus for a perfect stranger?
Callie: We all like to think we would but...
Derek: It's more or less what major Hunt has been doing every day for the last couple of years.
Owen: No, guys did it. I just came in behind them with a dust pan and a broom and swept up.
Derek: You sewed up soldiers under fire. You didn't sweep up.
Owen: How do you think O'Malley's gonna do over there. You think he can handle it?
Callie: No, I don't.
Derek: i think he's gonna surprise us all.
Mark: I think he's coming back in a body bag.
Meredith: I think you all should just shut up! Just shut the hell up! Please, just shut up!
Arizona: Hey, I thought you were in surgery?
Callie: I'm on my way.
Arizona: Have you talked to Bailey about this peade's and tucker thing?
Callie: No, I've only talked to Bailey about the army thing and George.
Arizona: Are you upset with me?
Callie: Hah, no I'm awesome.
Callie: No, do not. Do not Calliope me. Ok, you said it was awesome. George. Sweet, kind George, who can't even kill a fly is joining the army to go to Iraq in the middle of a war and you said awesome.
Arizona: It is, awesome.
Callie: No, it is not awesome. God, who are you?
Cristina: Are you gonna chew?
Meredith: Mmmm... my dragged under the bus guy's in angio. They're gonna page me any minute. How's Izzie? Is she retaining anything?
Bailey: Ok, at 6pm your idiotic colleague George O'Malley will finish his surgery with the Chief.
Callie: And, at 6pm you will be standing beside us in the OR hallway, prepared to join in an intervention.
Bailey: What polite company might like to call an intervention. Though, I'm not sure interventions involve whooping people on the behind. With a belt.
Alex: What, he's got a drinking problem now?
Meredith: He joined the army.
Alex: 007? He can't go to the army. He's the guy that gets killed.
Cristina: He's the guy that gets killed cleaning his own gun
Bailey: Grey, is going to coax him back as a loving friend. (to Cristina) You are going to use logic, and reason to point out the idiocy of his ways. Stevens will make sad cancer eyes. And, if all of that doesn't work, Karev, you're gonna pull out your... I was raised out back with the trash cans roots, and just beat the crap out of him.
Alex: 6 o'clock.
Arizona: Maybe we're bouncier in ped's, than in general surgery. But I thought there would be a yay! Or some jumping around. 'Cause you look pretty dower for someone whose about to start a highly prized fellowship. You are about to start a highly prized fellowship right?
Callie: Hey, I've got a plan to stop George, you in?
Arizona: Stop George from what?
Bailey: Ah, he joined the army. Yes. I'm in.
Arizona: Bailey, I'm talking to you! Why are you trying to stop him?
Callie: Because he joined the army.
Callie: And, because he's my ex husband, and I know his mom and I love his mom. And, normally Izzie would talk sense into him but, she's got cancer, and kind of a bad mental deficit. So, it's on me to stop him.
Arizona: Why would you wanna stop him?
Callie: Because he joined the army. Don't you think that's a problem?
Arizona: I think that's awesome.
Bailey: What did you do to O'Malley?
Owen: Excuse me?
Bailey: Ah, somebody else around here likely to convince someone to join the army, and be a trauma surgeon in Iraq?
Meredith: The army?
Meredith: De fib
Owen: Charge the paddles to 360
Bailey: Owen, you have to call and undo this.
Owen: Bailey, little busy here.
Callie: George... George O'Malley!
Owen: It wasn't my idea
Meredith: No change
Owen: Charge again.
Owen: Look, I did what I could to give him a decent education in trauma. I didn't know he was gonna go and enlist.
Meredith: He keeps coding.
Callie: There's Y open book pelvic fractures.
Owen: There's too much bleeding. If we take him to an OR now he'll die on the table.
Callie: He needs to go to angio if we're gonna stop the pelvic arterial bleeding.
Meredith: Sinus tac, we have a rhythm. Barely there, but it's there.
Owen: Let's stabilize the pelvis
Bailey: Look, I know what goes on in this hospital. I know you're messed up from that war and not in a small way. Get him out of it!
Callie: Page me if you need me. I've got other pages.
Mark: How did you piss off all the women?
Owen: Ah, lets get this guy an angio
Meredith: Angio? He's barely got a pulse.
Owen: It's now or never if we want him to live. Alright, lets move. Sir, i know it's really touch, but I'd personally be really grateful if you'd try and stay alive for the next few minutes.
