Grey's Anatomy Season 3 Episode 13: "Great Expectations" Quotes
MIRANDA: "These are your letters of support for my free clinic. Sign them."
PRESTON: "Why do you want this clinic so badly?"
DEREK: "You're a surgeon."
MIRANDA: "Because I need something more. I know you all have your messy love lives and your secrets and your silliness, but I want more. I need something to hold on to. I need a reason to believe that medicine can do more than stitch you up and send you away. I need to believe that medicine can not only save lives, but change lives! I need... I need... to believe in something the way I used to believe in you all. Sign the papers! Sign the papers."
"Mark Sloan, Chief of Surgery. That makes me vomit a little in my mouth."ADDISON
MIRANDA: "You didn't think of maybe telling me this morning that you were planning to step down instead of sending me on this wild goose chase?"
RICHARD: "Dr. Bailey. You need those clowns to sign off on your proposal because one of them may be Chief of Surgery in a month. It's hard to imagine, for me more than anyone, but since you're not ready for the job, one of them has got to do it for the next few years."
RICHARD: "It's you that's going to be Chief eventually. That's who you are. But you're gonna have to get a new chair because you're too short. You have short legs. But someday you are going to be Chief of Surgery. I wasn't sending you on a wild goose chase. I was trying to get you in a habit of doing things without me."
ALEX: "You kissed me right? You kissed me and ever since, you've been avoiding me."
ALEX: "No, you've been avoiding me because you just assumed I want you. Or you just expect that everyone you look at sideways is pining after you, right? Has it even occurred to you that maybe I'm not interested?"
ADDISON: "You're not interested?"
ALEX: "You think I wanna be just another intern sleeping an attending?"
ADDISON: "You kissed me back."
ALEX: "You're my boss. I mean, what did you expect me to do? Look, Sloan's had me changing bandages all day, and I would way rather be scrubbing in one of your surgeries. And if you keep avoiding me, I don't get to scrub in, so stop avoiding me. [pauses] Look, it happened. But it doesn't have to happen again."
CALLIE: "How's George?"
CRISTINA: "Dealing, I guess."
CALLIE: "He sure has a voracious appetite."
CRISTINA: "Some people bake. Others eat."
CALLIE: "No no no. I don't mean that kind of appetite. I mean the other appetite."
CRISTINA: "Oh okay. We're not friends. You and I. We're not friends, so please don't talk to me about what George eats."
CALLIE: "I was just concerned and I thought you'd be concerned, but you know what? Forget it. I don't like you."
CRISTINA: "Oh. Now my feelings are hurt."
IZZIE: "Last I heard, perpetual sex was not one of the five stages of grief, but denial is."
GEORGE: "You shouldn't be listening at other people's doors."
IZZIE: "You were in the hallway naked. I saw you."
GEORGE: "I blocked that out."
IZZIE: "Let me remind you that I'm that I'm still recovering from the death of my fiancÃ©, the demise of my surgical career, the fact that I was forced to deposit my 8 million dollar check that I'm saving for a good cause even though I haven't found a good cause. And I'm the only one here under a hack of a shrink. I could blow any minute. Now George's dad has died and turned him into a sex machine. I'm going to need a little help with that so one of you better pull it together."
GEORGE: "Hey. Anyone seen Callie? I kinda need to find her for something."
IZZIE: "George has turned into a sex machine. Are you hearing me? A machine of sex! We have to do something. What's wrong with you people?"
MEREDITH: "Derek kept me up all night with his ranting. Cristina and Burke still are not speaking to each other."
CRISTINA: "Okay, you know what? I'm fine. I mean I'm just not going to be the first one talking. He has to talk because I'm in the right. Talking first is for losers, and I'm winning."
MEREDITH: "And Alex. I don't know what's wrong with Alex."
ALEX: "I'm good. I'm all good."
GEORGE: "Why are you trying to make this about you?"
IZZIE: "It's not about me! It's about me wanting to talk to you about you needing so much sex your girlfriend's vagina's broken."
MEREDITH: [to Cristina, then Preston] "You're enjoying your meal at the International House of Silence. Burke, you have to feed Cristina. She doesn't cook and she will starve to death."
CRISTINA: "I have cereal!"
MEREDITH: "You two live together, someone has to be the first to speak."
PRESTON: "I am giving a dinner party. If she wants to sit there, she can sit there. Let's just enjoy our evening and talk about something else."
PRESTON: "Meredith. Would you like seconds?"
MEREDITH: "Maybe Cristina would like some. Cristina, would you like some?"
PRESTON: "I only made enough for three."
MEREDITH: "You just said there were seconds."
DEREK: "This isn't at all awkward."
DEREK: "What? I thought you were-"
MARK: "I was going but now I'm not. Rumor has it there's a race for Chief."
DEREK: "Where did you hear that?"
MARK: "Good news travels fast. Especially when you have a chatty girlfriend. Anyway, see you at the finish line."
