GEORGE: "Excuse me?"

GEORGE: [looking at Dr. Bailey] "Look at her! She's almost as wide as she is tall."
MEREDITH: "Are her ankles swollen?"
IZZIE: "It's gonna be weird when she goes on leave."
CRISTINA: "Leave? She's going on leave?"
MEREDITH: "That's usually what happens when people push babies out of their vaginas."
GEORGE: "You think we'll get a new resident?"
ALEX: "Nah. They'll probably just leave us all unattended, see how much damage we can do."
IZZIE: "Yeah, well, you would know."

GEORGE: "It looks like Santa threw up in here."
MEREDITH: "Just go with it, we're being supportive here."
IZZIE: "Did I go overboard? I know sometimes I can go too overboard."

GEORGE: "Um, we need to talk about the dog."
IZZIE: "That's not a dog, this is a hyena that escaped from the zoo and dressed up in a dog's clothing."
GEORGE: "Whatever. I don't chew up his clothes. I don't urinate on his bed. I don't try to mount him from behind."
IZZIE: "Mount you from behind?"
GEORGE: "He tried to."

GEORGE: "We have to do something. Meredith has become like an exhibit. Like a zoo animal. Like that rare panda that everyone stares at."
IZZIE: "Please don't say that to her face. I think that panda died alone."
GEORGE: "I'm just saying we should do something to cheer her up."
CRISTINA: "I've got something."

THATCHER: "Oh, hey, Dr. O'Malley."
GEORGE: [surprised] "Hi."
THATCHER: "I was looking for you. Before, when I was asking about Meredith... You know her. You're her friend?"
GEORGE: "I used to be her roommate."
THATCHER: "Oh, so, you know her really well."
GEORGE: "Pretty well, yeah."
THATCHER: "Um, she... she came to see me a couple weeks ago..."
GEORGE: [pauses] "A couple weeks ago?"
THATCHER: "Yeah. I... I didn’t know what to say to her. She looks... so much like her mother. Ellis was cold. I mean, I was a coward, I was. I left. But her mother would never let me know her and now I don’t know how to know her."
GEORGE: [pauses] "Well, Meredith is anything but cold. She smiles... not that often, but when she does, you know because she's really going through a lot, but it's… you just feel warm. She's kind. I mean, she can be a little selfish at times, and she's flawed. But she's kind. She cares about people and, um... she cares about her patients. She's going to be a brilliant surgeon. You know, around here, she's known as the one to beat. So, I... I guess she has that in common with her mom, but the rest of her, I think, the rest of that, she gets from you."
THATCHER: "Hmm... do you... know where she is?"
GEORGE: "I think she left already. But I could tell her you were here, if you want me to."
THATCHER: "Yeah. Okay. Thank you."
GEORGE: "You're welcome."
THATCHER: "Okay."
GEORGE: "Okay. Bye."
THATCHER: "Bye."
MEREDITH: [whispering, hiding] "Thank you, George."

GEORGE: "You live here?"
CALLI: "I... I know it seems weird. But I spend so much time at the hospital as it is."
GEORGE: [pauses] "Do you know how to cut hair?"

ADDISON: "Dr. O'Malley, did you get Molly Thompson's test results back from the lab yet?"
GEORGE: [pauses] "No."
ADDISON: "What? Dr. O'Malley, when I assign you to a case, I expect you to give it your undivided attention. Give me one good reason I shouldn't take you off this case!"
GEORGE: [pauses] "I just discovered that Molly Thompson's maiden name is Grey, making her the daughter of Thatcher Grey, meaning that Meredith has a sister she doesn't even know exists. And I don’t care. I don’t. I'm on this case. and... apparently God hates me."
ADDISON: "Okay."
GEORGE: "Thanks."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

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.
