Miranda Bailey Quotes
Izzie: I'm looking, But, I don't see anything.
Derek: Because there's nothing there. The scan's clean.
Bailey: I told you.
Izzie: Then why is Denny back? The man's a hallucination, that means there has to be something there.
Bailey: Izzie, if it's clear then...
Izzie: I wanna go to this wedding. I wanna watch the bride walk down the aisle. I wanna hear the vows. I wanna catch the bouquet. I planned this wedding down to the very last detail. It's the perfect wedding. This wedding, is perfect. You know how much I wanna be there. So why would I tell you about Denny? Today of all days, why wouldn't I just wait? Denny is back. That means something is there.
Bailey: It's not like we can just map the brain for hallucinations the way we do with seizures.
Derek: Wait a minute. What are hallucinations?
Izzie: Hallucinations are neurons firing in the brain.
Derek: Well, it's never been done before. But if, if we can somehow induce your hallucination, there's a chance we could pick it up on an EEG. Then, we could pin point the part of the brain that's hallucinating.
Bailey: It could be anything. It could be scar tissue.
Izzie: It's a tumor.
Bailey: You don't know that.
Izzie: Denny Duquette is standing right behind you. It's a tumor. Right Denny?
Denny: Yeah. It's good to see you Dr. Bailey.
Izzie: You can't see him because you don't have a tumor. But, he says hi.
Bailey: Tell Denny Duquette I said go home.
Izzie: It's a tumor.
Bailey: Wait and see.
Izzie: Come on, don't leave me hangin Bailey. Wedding day!
Bailey: Wedding day! (high fives Izzie, and rolls her eyes)
Izzie: You just did that 'cause I have cancer. You didn't mean it!
Izzie: (Touches her head, and pulls out strands of hair) My hair's starting to fall out.
Denny: You still look good.
Izzie: I know what this means. You being here.
Denny: I'm sorry.
Izzie: I'm still going to the wedding.
Izzie: You should see the bridesmaid dresses. Awh, and the flowers! They're being delivered at 5. I had to pay extra for them to decorate the church, but, Derek gave me his credit card. Told me to do what I had to do. So... It's gonna be perfect.
Alex: How's her blood pressure?
Bailey: Within normal limits.
Alex: And her incision site?
Bailey: Ah, as expected 2 weeks after surgery.
Alex: Well, she just got of the IL2 8 hours ago. I mean, she could still have...
Izzie: Her mets are gone, her blood pressures fine. Her incision doesn't hurt, she's doing well. It's wedding day! And, I'm going to the wedding. I'm a bridesmaid... I'm going! Right Bailey?
Bailey: I said you could go.
Izzie: Wedding day! Up top Alex (puts her hand up for a high five)
Alex: (Kisses her on the forehead) I'll check on you later.
Alex: Ok, that tastes like crap.
Alex: The shrimp tastes sweet and spicy. Kind of like our first date. The good part, the part before I didn't kiss you on the porch.
Izzie: Ok, nice.
Alex: The chicken, tastes like a drive to the beach with the windows down and the dog hanging out the window. Like when you're a kid. It's salty. Tastes good. But, I'd definitely vote for the shrimp if we have to choose.
Izzie: There's one more.
Alex: Ok, yeah. Yeah, that tastes like crap!
Bailey: Ok, the OR's prepped and ready. How 'bout you?
Izzie: Yeah, I'm ready. (Alex kisses her) Now, that tastes like crap.

Bailey: Ah, good news. Great news. The cancer's practically gone. It's... it looks like your psychic was right. Miss Stevens. It looks like we caught it early after all.

Mrs Stevens: Ahuh, oh really? Ahuh, really? Oh, yeah, that's great. That's great! Oh, thank you. Yeah, thank you hun. Thanks a million. Oh! Oh, that's great news Cricket. You're gonna be just fine.
Izzie: Oh yeah, let me guess, your psychic told you that.
Mrs Stevens: It's not just any old psychic, he's the best that I've ever heard of. Anyway, he said that skin cancer is highly curable if caught early.
Izzie: Oh that's great. A psychic with internet access. Let me guess how much that call cost you mother... $19.99 a minute.
Mrs Stevens: Well when you have a sick child Cricket, moneys not really the first thing on your mind. You seem like a very capable doctor, Dr. Bailey. Can I trust that you caught my daughter's skin cancer early.
Bailey: Um, well, Mrs. Stevens.
Mrs Stevens: Oh no, Call me Robbie hun.
Izzie: No mom. Don't call her hun. Don't call Bailey hun. You know, if you have questions you can just ask me. She's very busy and this thing I have it's complicated.
Mrs Stevens: I know it's complicated Isobel, I'm not a complete idiot. Now, I saw this thing on Tyra Show. There was this woman who had a mole on her private parts, and the dermatologist did not bother to check her privates 'cause she thought that they gyney would have done it. But, the gyney didn't do it. Maybe she didn't even go to the gyney. I don't know. Anyway, It was bad. She was bald and everything. She did not have a mole on her private parts did she?
Bailey: No, ma'am, no. She did not.
Mrs Stevens: Good.
Izzie: YAY! Oh, that's the one!
Bailey: Very dapper Dr. Shepherd.
Derek: You're serious about this? It's not some cruel joke?
Izzie: You look fantastic. He looks fantastic right?
George: Good chicken.
Meredith, Cristina: It's chicken.
Izzie: I know it's chicken! I wanna know what it tastes like.
Alex: Tastes like chicken.
Izzie: I'm having surgery today.
Bailey: Maybe, if the meds are strong.
Izzie: I am maybe having surgery today, and as such I cannot taste the chicken for myself. So I really need you guys to tell me what it tastes like. I need to nail down this dinner, so I can announce it on Meredith and Derek's wedding website.
Meredith: There's a website?
Izzie: So, can you please be a little more articulate than just chicken?
Bailey: Is there anything else you need before I go?
Arizona: No. You wanna sit a while?
Bailey: No, I do not want to sit. I've been sitting and lying down all day.
Arizona: Dr. Bailey.
Bailey: Holding a child. If I wanted to spend the day holding a child, I would have stayed home to hold my own child. I didn't do a single medical thing today. I didn't even put a band aid on a patient. I'm... I'm just tired. I'm done.
Arizona: Are you gonna tell your husband?
Bailey: What would I tell him?
Arizona: That it's more than just cutting. Pedes is more than just cutting. And, what you did today was heroic, and you know it.
Bailey: Ok. Maybe I'll tell him that.
Mr Smitson: I called 8 organisations and they have a wait list for emergency funds. I don't know what to do. I just, I don't know.
Bailey: Mr Smitson, it's time to stop now.
Mr Smitson: Maybe if we just go to the airport they'll let us on a flight. I mean, people do things like that right? For a sick child they'll...
Bailey: Mr Smitson...
Mr Smitson: No! Please don't make me stop. Ok? Please don't make me stop! Please don't make me stop!
Bailey: I don't wanna stop either. But, Jessica is terminal Matt. In a few minutes her heart is going to stop. Now, I can... I can pump her chest, I can push all sorts of medicines, I can put her on a ventilator 'cause she'll no longer be able to breathe on her own. But, even with all of that, she's going to die. And the last person who will have had her hands her, who will have been able to touch who was gonna be me, or a nurse. Or it could be you. So, you don't wanna miss this. This next part, she needs her Daddy for this part.
Jessica: Daddy, are we going to Mexico?
Mr Smitson: Yes, we're going to Mexico. Where the sky is blue, blue. And the sand is white. The waters so clear that you can see all the way to the bottom. We're going. Just you and me. No more doctors, no more medicine, no more hospitals. Just you and me. (Jessica flatlines) We're gonna go. You just relax, we'll be there soon. (Bailey turns off the monitor) We'll play on the beach all day, and we'll make sand castles. We're going. We'll be there soon, you'll see. We're gonna have so much fun. Just you and me. Just you and me.
Cristina: Did her vitals remain stable the entire time?
Meredith: Were there any spikes in her intracranial pressure?
Alex: Was there any residual tumor?
Bailey: Shepherd was able to resect all of the tumor. She'll be in packing view for about an hour. She's fine. Your friend is just fine, no thanks to any of you. Tomorrow, do better!
