Izzie: Oh Alex. What do you think? Looks real right? My mom sent it to me.
Alex: Ah, what are you doing here?

Izzie: I have to come back now before I don't have a job to come back to.
Izzie: I have to show people that I'm not gonna die. Unless I sit alone in that trailer for one more minute. Then I am gonna die. I'm gonna die of boredom.
Alex: Look, Izzie.

Alex: Is there some kind of time line on this. Or...
Doctor: Your wife is living with cancer Dr Karev. Right now, the cancer has stopped growing. With a cancer this aggressive, that's pretty stunning success. There's not time line. There's just... we watch it. We wait. We hope it doesn't start to grow again.

Izzie: Whatcha reading?
Alex: I have this patient I'm trying to diagnose. It's driving me nuts.
Izzie: So take a break, I miss you.
Alex: I'm right here.
Izzie: No you're not. You're here, but you're not here. And I miss you.
Alex: Iz, come on. I'm trying to work.
Izzie: I'm wishing for a brain tumor. I'm wishing all the time for a giant tumor that would just press down on my brain and make me hallucinate George. So that I could talk to him again, so I could laugh with him again. I miss him so much. I miss him all the time, and I just want to feel better. Even for a minute you know, I just want to be a person who isn't wishing for a brain tumor. Just for one minute. And, I can't drink because of the cancer meds, I don't do drugs, I can't even work right now. I don't have any distractions. I'm sad, and I miss George. So please, please, come inside and help me feel better.
Alex: "I miss George". Nice. Real seductive.

Bailey: Ok, any pain here? Now, take a deep breath. Any dizziness when you stood up? Take a deep breath.
Bailey: Ok. You are going home. You are gonna come back in 12 days for another round of IL2 and then you have your PET scan 2 weeks after that. But, there's no need for you to keep living in this bed. You should take it easy. You are still a cancer patient, but you're no longer a surgical patient.

Bailey: Ah, don't forget to sign the discharge papers before you leave.

Izzie: Get up. I mean it. Get up! Now go get a life.
Amanda: I can't.
Izzie: George was a surgeon. He had a purpose. He wanted to save lives. Now he doesn't get the chance. Now he doesn't get the chance to do anything anymore. But you do. You could go to medical school. You could hang out with your freaking friends. I don't care what you do, just go do something with your life, because you have one. You lived, and George didn't! And I know that feels horrible and shocking and terrifying, but you lived. So go live your freaking live.
Amanda: I don't know how.
Izzie: Nobody does. Nobody knows how. But God, have enough respect for George to go figure it out. Because if I see you sitting on this bench ever again, I will kick your ass from here to Sunday.

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.
