Owen Hunt Quotes
Will you come with me?
Owen: A quick consult Dr. Yang?
Cristina: What are you doing?
Owen: I realized the reason why I haven't told my mother I'm back is because part of me is still over there. I made a commitment to the army that I wasn't able to fulfill. If my unit hadn't been destroyed. I would still be there. So, no wonder I can't sleep at night, or look my mother in the eye. No wonder you and I, we can't move forward. My work there isn't done. Until it is, I have no business being here. So, I've decided to go back.
Cristina: I have to go.
Owen: Come on.
Cristina: I'm sorry, what am I supposed to say?
Owen: I could use your support.
Cristina: You don't have it.
Owen: So ah, I had a good session with my shrink this morning.
Cristina: Did you talk to her about your Mom? I mean, have you seen your Mom yet? 'Cause she lives, you know, a few miles away and she thinks your still in Iraq.
Owen: I'm planning to see her.
George: Dr. Hunt.
George: I just lost another one. All my patients are dieing, I need you to pull me.
Owen: That's for me to decide. There's an ambulance coming, go see what you can do.
George: I'm in over my head.
Owen: Walk away O'Malley.
Lexie: That's Michelle, she dyed her hair for graduation.
Patient: Dana, is she ok?
Cristina: The paramedics haven't brought her in yet, but as soon as they do I'll let you know. Do you have any ah, family we can contact?
Patient: They're not here. Dana and I were supposed to fly there tomorrow. It's D-Day.
Cristina: it's what?
Patient: It's what Dana calls it. My parents don't have the money to let me stay, i have to go back. We both knew D-Day was coming. I tried to break up with her to make it easier. I switched classes every semester so that we didn't have any together. But, it didn't matter. I couldn't stay away. When you love someone, you know, love is love. It doesn't matter that you're not supposed to be together.
Owen: (walks in) How's he doing?
Cristina: Ah, he's starting to stabilize.
Owen: Good. Looks like he's ready for CT.
Patient: I think, maybe she got out in time. Maybe she's not hurt that bad. Because, when I turned around she wasn't there. She was not there anymore (crying).
Cristina: How's it going with your shrink?
Owen: Ah, I'm doing better. Inch by inch. Progress is slow. It was your ceiling fan, above your bed. Blades spinning like blades of a chopper, um, my shrink said that was the trigger to me ah, choking you.
Cristina: Oh. You know we should probably get going...
Owen: Nice work today.
Cristina: Nice work today! Seriously?
Owen: I'm sorry?
Cristina: Run to my truck. You got O'malley clipping bleeders, and you're telling me to run to your truck.
Owen: You know what my truck looks like. O'malley doesn't. But, that... that run you took saved the guys life.
Cristina: Yeah, well all day, all day you were teaching O'Malley and you ignored me.
Owen: O'Malley wants to be a trauma surgeon. You've already declared cardio. I didn't do anything wrong today. I treated you like I would anyone else.
Cristina: (pushes him) I am not like anyone else. Take care now? What is that? What are you like, you're not happy now? What... what are you? You know, just a choke 'em and forget 'em kind of guy?
Owen: (pulls out a piece of paper and hands it to Cristina)
Cristina: Hey there now. Take care now. Nice work Yang. What is this?
Owen: It's my shrink. My shrink gave me these sentences. We ah, we came up with them together. They're all 3 word sentences. So I could have something to say to you instead of the 3 words that are... that are killing me. The 3 words that you know I feel but I can't say them, because it would be cruel to say them, because I am no good for you. I don't wanna torture you. I don't wanna look at you longingly when I know I can't be with you. So, yeah I'm smiling, and I'm saying take care now. I'm letting you off the hook. I'm trying, I'm trying so hard to let you off the hook. I'm trying to make it right. What I did to you. Can't you see that? I'm just trying to make it right.
Cristina: (gives the paper back) Take care now.
Owen: Oh, sorry. I'm sorry. Take care now.
Owen: I jumped. In front of her car. And she was just driving to the bank.
Dr. Wyatt: Are you talking about Cristina?
Owen: I jumped in front of her. I knew, I knew I wasn't together. I knew no good for her, or for anyone. And I wrecked her. And that is unforgivable. I don't forgive myself for that. I can't forgive myself for that. And I feel shameful about that. That is what I fell today. Shame.
Dr. Wyatt: Good. That's a start.
Owen: How is that a start?
Dr. Wyatt: You named it. The feeling. You have to know what it is, before you can start to navigate to somewhere better.
Owen: I don't feel anything
Dr. Wyatt: Nothing? No anger? Happiness? Unhappiness? Guilt? Survivors guilt? You know it's very common with veterans.
Owen: It's not about my platoon.
Dr. Wyatt: You have shoved your feelings aside for so long. I'm asking you to claim them. And Owen, this is about your platoon.
Owen: It's about the fact that I tried to choke my girlfriend to death. What? Are you saying the way I feel about my platoon and the way I feel about what happened with Cristina are the same? They're not the same.
Dr. Wyatt: Well, how will you know if you can't name those feelings?
Owen: It's not what it's... It's...I don't know.
Owen: I want to apologize for earlier. What I said was, it was out of line.
Derek: It's already forgotten.
Owen: Thank you for doing this.
Cristina: I don't think ... I can't handle this after all.
Owen: What, what do you mean, what are you saying?
Cristina: I'm sorry, I'm so so sorry. But I'm lying here in your arms, and I'm afraid to fall asleep.
