"When you operate, the rest of the world goes away. No thirst, pain... but it's not that way when you're sharing your body with another person."

MIRANDA

CRISTINA: "I am a 55 year old man. I'm nauseous and I can't stop throwing up."
ALEX: "Forget it, alright. I didn't ask for anybody's help."
CRISTINA: "Look, evil spawn, you can nurse your pride -- the key word being nurse -- or you can pass your test and be a doctor. Up to you."
ALEX: [pauses] "Any abdominal pain?"
CRISTINA: "Yes, from my giant fat belly all the way to my back. Oh, and I'm drunk. Hiccup. Hiccup."

DEREK: "Do you happen to know what time of year neurosurgeons are busiest, Dr. Stevens?"
IZZIE: "There's a particular time of year?"
DEREK: "There's no hard or fast rule, but brain injuries tend to pile up around the holidays. Folks fall off roofs while they string up lights. They go skating for the first time in a decade and break their heads open. Every year people drive through blizzards to get to parties where they kiss germ infected strangers under poisonous mistletoe. Then they get drunk and smash their heads through their windshield on their way home. But there's no hard or fast rule."

PRESTON: "I believe there's a mind/body/spirit connection. If Justin really doesn't want this heart, his body will reject it."
CRISTINA: "So, let me get this straight. You not only celebrate Christmas, but you actually believe in Santa Claus?"
PRESTON: [pauses] "Go clean up."
CRISTINA: "But we're not done here."
PRESTON: "You are."

NURSE: "Chief, Adele just called."
RICHARD: "Please tell her I'm in-"
NURSE: "She knows you're not in surgery and she said to tell you, quote, we're going to our niece's school pageant this morning. You've known about it for months, and after what you pulled on Thanksgiving... then she started using a great many words that I don't feel comfortable repeating."
RICHARD: [sighs] "Look, I have seven surgeons on vacation."
NURSE: "There was something in there about divorce."

RICHARD: [looking at the board] "Anxiety attacks, aneurysms, and ulcers."
MIRANDA: "Must be December."

PRESTON: "You aren't in the Christmas spirit."
CRISTINA: "I'm Jewish."
PRESTON: "Seriously?"
CRISTINA: [nods]
PRESTON: [pauses] "Oh. Well, if there are any traditions you want me to be aware of..."
CRISTINA: "Seriously, Burke, I haven't observed religious holidays since I was old enough to know better."

GEORGE: [looking at Dr. Bailey] "Look at her! She's almost as wide as she is tall."
MEREDITH: "Are her ankles swollen?"
IZZIE: "It's gonna be weird when she goes on leave."
CRISTINA: "Leave? She's going on leave?"
MEREDITH: "That's usually what happens when people push babies out of their vaginas."
GEORGE: "You think we'll get a new resident?"
ALEX: "Nah. They'll probably just leave us all unattended, see how much damage we can do."
IZZIE: "Yeah, well, you would know."

GEORGE: "It looks like Santa threw up in here."
MEREDITH: "Just go with it, we're being supportive here."
IZZIE: "Did I go overboard? I know sometimes I can go too overboard."
MEREDITH & GEORGE: [together] "It's great."
IZZIE: "Oh, good. Yay! I love Christmas!"
MEREDITH & GEORGE: [together] "We know."
