CRISTINA: "This is great. No blood, no guts, no lives to save. It's dead quiet..."
IZZIE: "Cristina!?"
MIRANDA: "Yang, did you really just say that?"
CRISTINA: "Say what?"
GEORGE: "The 'q' word."
IZZIE: "That's like saying 'Macbeth' in the theater."
CRISTINA: "Oh please. You think because someone says its quiet that it will mean…"

CRISTINA: [Hands Dr. Burke his cap]
PRESTON: "Thank you. How long have you had this? It's one of my favorites."
CRISTINA: "You're welcome. You know you don’t need it."
PRESTON: "What?"
CRISTINA: "I keep that cap in my locker because every morning I look at it and I'm reminded of what I'm here for and what I want to be. A great surgeon. One who is decisive and executes and who doesn’t need a piece of clothing to give him an edge in surgery. You don't need it.
PRESTON: [pauses] "I know. You're right."
CRISTINA: "I know I'm right."

PRESTON: "Hey... if you feel that strongly about O'Malley, I'll ask him to leave tonight."
CRISTINA: "No, don't."
PRESTON: "I thought you wanted him out."
CRISTINA: "I do. Just not tonight."
PRESTON: [Hands her his cap] "Scrub cap."
CRISTINA: "Oh, thank you."
BURKE: [smiles] "You're welcome."

IZZIE: "I need Burke's cap, now."
CRISTINA: "Excuse me?"
IZZIE: "Are you going to give it to him or am I going to physically take it from you?"
CRISTINA: "Are you threatening me?"
IZZIE: "I swear to god, Cristina... I like you. I really do. But I grew up in a trailer park and I am not above kicking your pampered little Beverly Hills ass. And I do mean physically kicking your ass."

CRISTINA: "You know, [Burke] is acting like I committed a crime. Like my apartment is full of stolen goods. He’s acting like I kept my apartment to hide stolen goods, so I could do illegal organ transplants for money."
MEREDITH: "Are you sure he’s not just acting like you lied to him about moving in?"
CRISTINA: "What the hell's wrong with you?"
MEREDITH: "My mother's a filthy whore."

PRESTON: [enters his apartment] "I am Preston Burke. I am a widely renowned cardio-thoracic surgeon. I am a professional and moreover I am a good, kind person. I am a person that cleans up after himself. I am a great cook. And you? You are an unbelievable slob. A slovenly, angry intern. I am Preston Burke. And you... are the most competitive, guarded, stubborn... the most challenging person I have ever met. And I love you. Why the hell won't you just let me?
CRISTINA: "I gave up my apartment 20 minutes ago."
PRESTON: [pauses] "Well, alright then."

CRISTINA: [referring to George] "What is with him?"
ALEX: "Okay, 50 bucks O'Malley caught her doing McDreamy."
IZZIE: "McDreamy?"
ALEX: "Did I just call the dude McDreamy?"
CRISTINA: "Oh, you know you did."
ALEX: [to Izzie] "You are ruining my life."

CRISTINA: "What’s up with your hair?"
PRESTON: "Leave the man alone. He’s got issues. If he wants to cut his hair to get over his issues, that’s his business. That's his thing."
GEORGE: "It's my thing!"

CRISTINA: "Your problem is estrogen."
MEREDITH: "No, my problem is tequila."

MEREDITH: "You really should take something."
CRISTINA: "Drugs are for babies."
IZZIE: "I hate Alex."
CRISITNA: "And the non sequitur award goes to..."
IZZIE: "I’m sorry, but I just hate Alex."
MEREDITH: "I broke up with Derek."
CRISTINA: "Burke wants to have a relationship."
IZZIE: "Boys are stupid."

[to Bailey's baby] "Shut it.... shut it!"

RICHARD: "Yang, what is that smell?"
CRISTINA: "That's feces. Baby feces."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
