Miranda Bailey Quotes
Cristina: She asked me a question, I was right to answer it. I did my job. A patient asked me to disclose the risks of a surgical procedure and I am required by law and my oath to do so. If you know a way to sugar coat a colostomy bag I would like to hear it.
Bailey: If you know a more respectful way to speak to an attending surgeon I'd like to hear that. Until you do, you don't talk to me. You're off my service.
Cristina: Ok, ok. Seriously! What is your problem?

Bailey: Where do you get off killing my patients Yang?
Bailey: When you take it upon yourself to talk that girl out of a life saving surgery, you're killing her.
Cristina: I didn't talk her... She had questions about the surgery. You left the room.
Bailey: No, I left the room to give a very fragile, very distraught patient time and space to accept what's being asked of her. Then and only then would I have discussed the possible risks, with I'm certain, more tact and sensitivity than you've ever displayed in all the time that I've known you.
Cristina: She asked...
Bailey: No! I don't care what she asked you, and if she asked you anything else you're only answer will be "Let me ask my Attending."

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.
Izzie: Thank you Dr. Bailey. I don't know how to... thank you.
Bailey: Ah, don't forget to sign the discharge papers before you leave.

Arizona: I have a kid in there, 15 years old, previously healthy. Has back pain bad enough to cause vomiting. Can you talk it through with me, cause I can't figure out what it is and I think best out loud.
Bailey: Did you not about George O'Malley?
Arizona: I did. It's incredibly sad.
Bailey: I cannot talk to you right now. I cannot work right now.
Arizona: Dr. Bailey, I hear that, and I don't mean to be insensitive but, this kid... this kids still alive. And I don't know what's wrong with him, not a clue. So, I need you to work. I need you to talk through this living patient with me Bailey. Please.

Meredith: He grabbed my hand, and he squeezed it, and he wrote with his finger.
Derek: He wrote with his finger?
Meredith: You know... in my hand! He wrote 007.
Bailey: Wh... Give me... Ok... what did I write?
Bailey: No! No I did no write Joe!
Everyone: Are you serious? It could not be him? How do you know?
Mark: This is funny.
Richard: Did anyone try and call O'Malley? Can we get him on the phone?
Meredith: I'm telling you he squeezed my hand.

Meredith: I could have sworn it was George.
Cristina: I got his voicemail.
Lexie: He's not answering.

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.

Richard: What happened?
Bailey: Is it her brain?
Cristina: No, it's hypokalemia.
Alex: We couldn't control the eurythmias.
Cristina: Her pressures dropping off a cliff.
Alex: Get me an intubation tray.
Cristina: Alex. She signed a DNR.
Alex: Shut up Yang!
Cristina: She knew this might happen, that's why she signed it.
Alex: I don't give a crap what she signed.
Cristina: Alex, it's not what she wants.
Alex: (Izzie flatlines) Get a crash cart! (he starts CPR)
Bailey: Karev, if she doesn't...
Alex: Look at her, get a crash cart!
Richard: Oh, screw the DNR. Hand me those paddles.
Bailey: Yang, take over compressions to her back
Cristina: I got it, I got it.
Richard: 1, 2, 3. (they turn her over) Hand down. Ok. Hand down. Charge to 300.

Callie: Oh, I'm sorry. I was just looking for Bailey. It's after 6.
Bailey: Yes, she scheduled an intervention so that we could give O'Malley a piece of our minds about this idiotic army business. Did he leave already?
Richard: He never scrubbed in. He told me he was enlisting. I sent him home, and told him to spend the day with his Mom since he was leaving so soon. He took off this morning.
