Derek: If I stop this surgery, it's the same as me sticking this scalpel into his brain. Is that what you want?
Miranda: Yes. That's what I want.

Miranda: Dr. Shepherd?
Derek: Dr. Bailey.
Miranda: I need you to stop. I need you to put down the scalpel. This man is trying to kill himself and, God forgive me, I need you to let him.

Miranda: Page Shepherd!
Meredith: The patient doesn't want that.
Miranda: Oh really, he tell you that?
William: Yes, don't page him, he's terribly unpleasant.

Bailey: Karev, go and get the machine.
Alex: What if it's already hooked up to somebody?
Arizona: If that somebody has more than 16 hours to live, then we'll unhook him.

Stevens, I need a nod. A yawn or maybe a little burp. Something that lets me know you're awake and capable of keeping this boy alive.

Mark: You read up on my surgery?
Miranda: Since it's your first time performing what I understand to be a very cutting-edge surgery, I was hoping you could use another set of hands.
Mark: Fine. You can join Dr. Grey and me.
Miranda: Dr. Grey, who's been banned from the O.R.?
Mark: She's on cappuccino duty.

Miranda: Steve is not a lip reader. None of the interns are lip readers. You'll just have to wait for the attendings to vote. Just like I did when I won.
Cristina: You won your solo surgery?
Miranda: I'm gonna pretend you didn't feel the need to ask me that question Yang, of course I won. I was good. Didn't cut LVAD wires, put my hands on bombs in body cavities, or have my interns operating on themselves. I was special! I was young, gifted and black, and everybody knew it. Attendings knew it, Chief knew it. I didn't have to act like I could read lips. I'd just go about my work, calmly, waiting for my name to get called.

Bailey: You never know Karev, severe abdominal pain could become an appendectomy ...
Alex: Dr. Bailey I am here to help in any way that I can. If there's someone in pain, then I'm there.

Okay then... she's a little off.

Miranda: Our cardiac wing is extensive, and well equipped with all-
Dr. Dixon: The first successful heart transplant was performed on September 7, 1896, by Dr. Ludwig Wren, in Frankfurt, Germany.
Miranda: ... okay.

Alex: I'm sorry, I don't mean to interrupt...
Miranda: No, please, inter ... Please, update Dr. Dixon on the patient.
Alex: [to Dr. Dixon] Dr. Stevens is prepping your patient for surgery. They scheduled a transplant six years ago, but the heart was too small. So they doubled up and added a donor heart to help his own heart function. They did a piggyback ...
Dr. Dixon: Heterotopic ... transplant. Piggyback is the colloquial name for the procedure. Don't do that.

George: We're operating on robots now?
Alex: Can we please go back to pigs.
Cristina: Yeah, what about people?
Miranda: Well when the Chief decides which one of you gets to do the first solo surgery, you'll wanna be ready.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Just because we can live without something, it doesn't mean we have to.

Meredith

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
