Izzie Stevens Quotes
Bailey: Ok, as you know you have stage 4 metastatic melanoma. You have a lot of surgeries, and a lot of procedures lined up for you over the next few weeks.
Richard: We've seen evidence of METS on your liver, so one of those surgeries Dr. Bailey and I will resect them. We also lined up Dr. Parker from OB to harvest as many healthy eggs as she can before you undergo any radiation.
Izzie: Right. Babies.
Bailey: Just leaving the option open for you if you want it.
Derek: But our priority today is to address the temporal lobe METS on your brain. I'm surprised we didn't catch it sooner. This kind of thing can cause headaches, seizures and intense hallucinations. But, hopefully the legion has a clear margin so I can remove it all.

Cristina: Sometimes we fail, but that's not always the case.

Izzie: Cristina, I know.
Cristina: I told Alex, and Bailey, and they're telling Meredith and George.
Cristina: No, I couldn't do my job. I think you came to me for help, and that's what I did. Because sometimes we win Izzie, and I want you to fight. Ok. You know, for whatever that's worth. I want you to fight.
Izzie: Thank you.

Izzie: I'm not gonna be a piece of meat in this hospital while you all fight over who gets to slice me up and then laugh while you do it.
Cristina: Ok, this right here... this is an emotional thing you're having. Which is why you should tell Meredith, or George, or...
Izzie: I'm not telling anybody, so just drop it.
Cristina: No. You're not dumping this on me. You're not dying in my arms. So either you tell them, or I will.
Izzie: I don't even know if I want treatment Cristina. I know too much. I know how violent surgery can be. They're gonna cut into my brain, they're gonna slice open my abdomen, and pull my organs out. And for what? Surgery fails all the time. Derek Shepherd is in the freakin woods right now, because we fail all the time! And even if they do everything right, I have a 5% chance of survival. 5%. Why would I put myself through hell? Run poison through my veins, irradiate my brain, if it's not gonna work anyway?
Cristina: Why did you tell me then? If you don't want my help, and you're not gonna do anything about it... why did you tell me?
Izzie: Just keep your mouth shut, and forget I ever told you anything.

Cristina: You blew it off?
Izzie: Cristina, please.
Cristina: I called every favor I had in this hospital, and then some. Swindler's is the best Oncological surgeon in the state. Why didn't you go?
Izzie: Why do you care so much?
Cristina: Why don't you? I'm working really hard on this, the least you could do is...
Izzie: They were calling the guy blow hole Cristina. Not just the interns, Alex. What are they gonna call me when I'm the patient? Swiss cheese for brains?
Cristina: No, that's awkward and long. Blow hole's pithy.

Cristina: Iz, no we need to talk about it. You've been complaining about being really backed up, and I got you an appointment.
Alex: If you need an enema that bad, maybe you shouldn't have all these fries. (steals some of Izzie's fries)
Meredith: You really booked her an appointment for an enema?
Cristina: You can't just ay that you're all backed up and then just sit there Izzie. If you make the decision to get an enema, then you should get an enema.
Alex: I think that maybe you're the one that's backed up. Solo surgery panic? I tell you what, I'll scrub in with you and if you can't handle it, I'll take over.
Cristina: I, I don't, ok. You know what, I'm just saying enema's can be a serious business.
George: Ok, Izzie, enema's code for what?
Izzie: My enema, my business.
Cristina: Ah, 15 minutes!
Meredith: This is a really strange day.

Cristina: Hey, did you get my page? I got you the appointment. It's in like, 15 minutes. How amazing am I? It usually takes weeks to get in there. Ah, did you take a look at the research.
Izzie: Seriously. Can I just eat?
Cristina: No, I'm sorry you don't have time.
Alex: Time for what?
Izzie: There's... I... an enema.
Cristina: Ah, Izzie's enema.
Izzie: Yes, I was supposed to get an enema today, but I decided it can wait. How about we talk about something else?

Izzie: That's it. Both of you in the hall now! You really think that was ok? You think that was doctorly?
Mark: (to interns) Go find something else to do. What the hell is going on with you?
Izzie: They were making completely inappropriate jokes at the expense of the patient, right in front of him. I have been trying to teach them and, they were cruel and inappropriate.
Mark: Ok, they were inappropriate. You know what else is inappropriate? This. You. This case is my baby. I've spent 3 years planning for it and you and your emotional life are not about to piss all over it. You're off the case.
Izzie: No, he needs me in there with him. You can't leave him alone with those interns.
Mark: Ok, fine. You wanna be there for his feelings you can be there before and after the surgery. But you're not coming in my OR. Whatever's going on with you Stevens, you'd better get it under control.

Meredith: What are you doing here I told you I was fine.
Cristina: Oh god, you are so not fine.
