CRISTINA: [enters room naked, in silence]
PRESTON: "Cristina what the hell are you doing?"
CRISTINA: "Getting comfortable in my apartment."
GEORGE: [holds hands over face] "I didn't see anything."
PRESTON: [to George] "Get out!"
CRISTINA: [smiles] "Stick to the basics."

IZZIE: "You’re not moving out, George."
GEORGE: "Oh, yes I am. I gave an ultimatum. Threw down the gauntlet. Drew a line in the sand."
IZZIE: "Well, it's time to ungive, unthrow, undraw."
GEORGE: [sighs] "A man does not give an ultimatum and then back down. Meredith had a choice and she chose the dog."
SOPHIE: "A girl chose a dog over you?"
GEORGE: "Yes!"
IZZIE: "No!"
SOPHIE: "That must be one hell of a dog."
GEORGE: "Excuse me?"
SOPHIE: "Those eyes, and those nice, firm hands. If a girl chose a dog over you, it must be one hell of a dog!"

"Stop. Don't talk to me! You'll only make me mad. I'm afraid you'll mess up my game, and I'm in the zone."

SOPHIE: "Nursing homes are for old people. I know I’m elderly. I do know that. But if I have to go to that place, I’m afraid I’ll become old."
GEORGE: "I don’t think that’s possible."
SOPHIE: [smiles] "You're too sweet."
GEORGE: "You know I would keep you here if I could."
SOPHIE: "No, darling, you can't waste any more time with me. You have to go balls out with the dog."
GEORGE: "Excuse me?"
SOPHIE: "So she chose an animal over you. Women are fools, that's old news. Life's too short for you to give in, Irish. So fight. You go and fight for what's yours."

[shouting] "Cujo has to go!!"

MEREDITH: "How weird is this job?"
GEORGE: "Weird."

GEORGE: "Was that a nod?"
MEREDITH: "Yes."
GEORGE: "Do we know what it meant?"
MEREDITH: "No."
GEORGE: "Well... for what it's worth, I... I think he's crazy if he doesn't pick you."

GEORGE: "Fair hours! Fair wages! Fair hours! Fair wages!"
IZZIE: "Way to get your strike on."
GEORGE: "I shouldn't even be seen talking to you."

RICHARD: "O'Malley, I need you to-"
GEORGE: "Sir, with all due respect, no offense intended, but I won't cross the picket line... All due respect, no offense... 40-50 hours of mandatory overtime is extremely..."
RICHARD: [walks away]
GEORGE: "Yes sir, I'm very sorry, no offense intended sir!"

GEORGE: [sees picket line] "Oh no."
IZZIE: "What? What's the problem?"
GEORGE: "My dad's a truck driver, and my mother's a teacher. If the evening news shows me crossing the picket line, they'll out-live me just to pee on my grave."

GEORGE: "Dr. Montgomery Shepherd, what are we gonna do? I mean, about Dr. Bailey. Can we drug her?"
ADDISON: "Against her will?"
GEORGE: "No. Well. Yes. I mean, can't we force her to push? If, um... we declare her temporarily insane?"
ADDISON: "You want me to declare Miranda Bailey incompetent? You think that'll help? That it'll make her more inclined, more comfortable giving birth?"
GEORGE: "I don't know, that's why I'm asking you."
ADDISON: "Do you think I'm not doing everything I can to help her? Do you think I'm just out here because, I dunno, I'm feeling lazy, just need a little 'me' time?"
GEORGE: "I was just asking..."
ADDISON: "Stop asking! Because no matter what you ask, the answer is I don't know. I'm doing everything I can. Miranda Bailey's husband is in mortal danger. Actual mortal danger! But there's not a lot I can say to comfort her and there's not a lot anybody can say to comfort me. I'm doing my best. Dr. Bailey is doing her best. Now I need you to do your best, and I need it to be better than standing here asking me the world's stupidest questions. Because I don't know, O'Malley!"

GEORGE: "I feel like colors are brighter than usual. Does anyone else think colors are brighter? My head hurts."
ALEX: "That's the adrenaline."
IZZIE: "Would you two just shut up! Nobody cares if the blue is bluer or if you have super smelling powers. Meredith could die. Any minute she could just die. Actually stop living. Dead. Corpse. "
IZZIE: [giggles] "I'm sorry. Sorry. God, I have really inappropriate reactions to stress."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.

Meredith

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
