Preston Burke Quotes
PRESTON: "So where do we stand?"
CRISTINA: "At the northeast corner of the hospital?"
CRISTINA: [enters room naked, in silence]
PRESTON: "Cristina what the hell are you doing?"
CRISTINA: "Getting comfortable in my apartment."
GEORGE: [holds hands over face] "I didn't see anything."
PRESTON: [to George] "Get out!"
CRISTINA: [smiles] "Stick to the basics."
PRESTON: "You forged my signature?"
MEREDITH: "Thatâ€™s really bad, right?"
PRESTON: "Yeah, thatâ€™s really bad." [pauses] The next time you decide to forge my signature, let me know. Save me a trip."
MEREDITH: "Thatâ€™s it? You're not gonna yell and say 'Dammit, Grey' and then storm off?"
PRESTON: "I will if you want me to."
MEREDITH: "That's okay."
MEREDITH: [narrating] "Everybody's a liar."
PRESTON: "Dr. Grey, is that a dog?"
MEREDITH: [holding dog by the leash] "No."
MIRANDA: "Tell me that is not a dog."
ALEX: "It's not a dog."
PRESTON: "His injuries are far less severe. We have a much greater chance of saving him."
DEREK: "Well I could argue that because her injuries are more severe, he should be the one that gets moved."
MEREDITH: "So, basically, whoever you move doesn't stand a chance. How do you choose? How do you decide who gets to live?"
PRESTON: "Never have I questioned a fellow surgeon in their O.R. I never understood what the problem was -- an intern dating an attending -- until today."
CRISTINA: "I'm not used to being wrong."
PRESTON: "I know. But you're an intern. Second guessing a resident? That's not your job."
MEREDITH: "Stop it."
MEREDITH: "Stop looking at me like I'm a patient."
DYLAN: "I'm sorry?"
MEREDITH: "The two of you are looking at me the way we look at patients. Like Iâ€™m gonna freak out at any minute. Well, I'm not going to freak out, so whatever it is, just tell me straight up."
PRESTON: [pauses] "The main oxygen line runs directly under this floor."
MEREDITH: "Okay. Not okay." [silence] "Well, I need one of you to tell me what this means exactly. Because I think I know what it means, but I tend to be glass half-empty these days, so I donâ€™t trust what I think it means. Because what I think it means is that if the bomb were to explode over the oxygen line, the whole hospital could blow up. Thatâ€™s just crazy right?"
DEREK: "I don't want to be the guy that killed Bailey's husband."
PRESTON: "I don't want to be the guy who kills us all."
MEREDITH: [with her hand on the bomb, in the patient] "Is this the strangest thing thatâ€™s ever happened in your O.R.?"
PRESTON: "I would have to say it is."
MEREDITH: "Good, because I'm very competitive."
PRESTON: [smiles] "The very best surgeons always are."
PRESTON: "You need to go. I cannot do this with you in here. I cannot think."
CRISTINA: "You know in movies, how the hero and there's always the other guy, the one who sees danger and runs in the opposite direction?"
CRISTINA: "Be the other guy."
PRESTON: "That's not an option."
HANNAH: "So, inside this man, Iâ€™m touching live, unexploded ammunition."
PRESTON: "I think so."
HANNAH: [pauses] "Not the greatest feeling in the world."
PRESTON: "It's definitely as bad as it seems."
HANNAH: [panicking] "I am 22 years old. I should not even be in here! This is some kind of mistake."
PRESTON: "You were gone when I woke up."
CRISTINA: "I had to go do a thing."
PRESTON: "A thing."
CRISTINA: "Yeah. A thing."
PRESTON: "You didnâ€™t leave a note."
PRESTON: [sighs] "We go to sleep, I think everything's fine. We wake up, and you're just a little bit crazy."
CRISTINA: "I had a thing!"
