Richard Webber Quotes
RICHARD: "How long have you and Walter been together?"
JOE: "Ten years."
JOE: "Yeah. We're thinking about kids."
RICHARD: "That's a big step."
JOE: "Tell me about it. You have kids?"
RICHARD: "Me? No. I... I work all the time. Adele always said she didn't want to raise kids alone."
JOE: "Walter says the same thing... I'm always working. At the bar. If I'm not there, who's gonna run the place?"
JOE: "But... Walter's worth it. If I have to make a change I'll do it."
RICHARD: "Joe and Walter got tired of not catching any fish. They went for a hike. What do you make of that?"
PRESTON: "Joe and Walter?"
RICHARD: "Oh! No, no, no. Joe and Walter are great. I mean that we've not caught any fish."
DEREK: "Just one: fish generally don't like to go where there's a lot of noise."
RICHARD: "Adele always sewed all my buttons."
ADDISON: "Have you called her?"
RICHARD: "Adele? Oh no. I wouldn't want to bother her with something as trivial as a button. I don't suppose either of you would wanna-"
ADDISON: "I'm sorry. I have two uteruses that I have to attend to."
MIRANDA: "I have many skills. Many skills. Surgical skills. Your button ruptures its esophagus, I'm your woman. Otherwise..." [leaves]
RICHARD: "You're blocking my light."
DEREK: "Think of it as a basic corner stich."
RICHARD: "I can figure out how to sew on my own buttons, thank you. I am a surgeon. Oh for God's sake! You sew this on for me, and I'll get rid of Addison and Sloan."
RICHARD: "What kind of idiot lights a cigarette in a hospital?"
DEREK: "Apparently people do idiotic things all the time."
DEREK: "Can I ask you a personal question? Why did you leave Meredith's mother?"
RICHARD: "I could have left Adele. I could have gone away with Ellis. But I would have had so much baggage, so much guilt. Ellis couldn't see it, but I wasn't... I would have never made her happy. Not like she was certain to be happy. I was a better man for walking away. I loved her enough to walk away."
RICHARD: "Dr. Sloan?"
MARK: "Dr. Webber!"
RICHARD: "What are you doing in Seattle?"
MARK: [pauses] "I don't know... I have a thing for ferryboats."
RICHARD: "I respect it. I really do. But I can't allow it. Violates all sorts of codes and you know it."
CALLIE: "So you're kicking me out, but you're allowed to live in your office?"
RICHARD: [pauses] "You noticed that, huh."
CALLIE: "I'm pretty observant."
RICHARD: "Well, guess if I'm throwing you out I better follow my own rules."
Richard: Adele, I just need more time.
Adele: I don't have any more time to give.
DEREK: "Where is she?"
RICHARD: "You had to be the cowboy..."
DEREK: "Where is she?!"
ADDISON: "Derek! Thank God, you're alive."
ADELE: "That is not the she he was asking for."
DEREK: "You realize this requires Meredith's power of attorney."
RICHARD: "I know."
DEREK: "Well, we need to tell her. It's probably better if it comes from you. With me there's baggage. With you, you're just trying to help out a friend."
RICHARD: [pauses] "Right, right."
"You're not here to make friends, Addison. You're here to make better surgeons. Being a teacher can be a lonely business."
