Grey's Anatomy Season 5 Episode 24: "Now or Never" Quotes
Derek: Ready to go?
Meredith: I just got a page. John Doe needs to go back into surgery.
Derek: Yeah, his post of CT's showed a re-bleed. I'm gonna have Nelson take care of it.
Meredith: No. Really?
Derek: Yeah, well I'd prefer to do it myself but, I wanna check in on Izzie. Maybe we can do that first, and then go get married after?
Meredith: No, we can't because we have the George intervention after that.
Derek: I'll have Nelson do it.
Meredith: You know what, tell them to prep him. We'll run to city hall. We'll come back, and we'll do it then.
Meredith: No, you know lets go. We gotta go. We gotta run to city hall, we'll come back, you'll check on Izzie, we'll monitor John Doe. I'll go talk George out of joining the army.
Derek: Look, we could do this another day.
Meredith: There is no other day! Every day is like this! Every day there's a crisis! There's no time!
Meredith: I love you and I do want to marry you today. But, there is no time.
Derek: (Der puts his hands on her face and looks at her) Do you have a piece of paper?
Meredith: For what?
Lexie: I thought you were operating on John Doe?
Mark: I already did. Right now I'm looking at houses. One has single fire place, which I like. This one has a back yard the size of Montana.
Lexie: Ahuh. You're buying a house?
Lexie: Right. Ah, ok.
Mark: I'm buying a house right now. It's a buyers market, and I'm buying a house.
Lexie: The only reason you're even talking about a house is to make me feel bad. You're trying to prove that you're moving on without me. So then I'll regret my decision and change my mind.
Mark: Ok, is this what women are doing when they say they're moving on?
Lexie: Yeah. They don't usually take out a home loan to do it. But...
Mark: Pathetic. Let me be clear, I'm moving on. I'm a better woman than you!
Bailey: If there's still a spot open for me on general surgery, I'd like to take you up on that.
Richard: I spent months trying to talk you off peade's. I finally get on board and you change your mind?
Bailey: Tucker gave me an ultimatum. The fellowship, or our marriage.
Richard: You chose your marriage.
Bailey: No, I'm leaving him. 'Cause a marriage that results to ultimatums, it's not a marriage. I mean, what kind of husband does that? So, I'm going to be a single mom. It's not the time for new specialties. (starts to cry) Damn. I'm sorry. I don't know, it's just the first time I've said it out loud. So it kind of just took the wind out of me.
Richard: Miranda, are you sure about this? I mean, he might come around. He's just scared.
Bailey: Well, we're all scared! I mean, if you're not scared you're not paying attention! One of my residents just signed up to go to war. That's scary. Another one just almost lost her life to melanoma, now she doesn't know what day it is. That's scary! What Tucker's facing isn't scary! He's just weak! A pat on the back isn't gonna help Sir.
Richard: Ok. Should I go?
Richard: Ok. Ok. Ok. I'l just stand here with you, if that's alright.
Bailey: Yes Sir. That would be fine.
Alex: What's your CRIT?
Izzie: Ugh! This is disgusting. I can't believe we serve it to the patients. (Alex points to a flash card) You keep asking for lime jello and don't like it. So stop giving it to me.
Alex: You get mad if I don't. Ok, now, what's your CRIT?
Izzie: I don't know. I'm tired.
Alex: What's O'Malley doing tomorrow?
Izzie: Joining the army. I need a break.
Alex: You don't think I need a break? Suck it up.
Izzie: What? God! Back off! I'm sorry if this is hard for you, but you are not the one with the short term memory of a carrot. (Alex slams her tray in the sink) Hey, go ahead. Get it off your chest. It's not like I'm gonna remember in 5 minutes.
Alex: Ok, I'm not the one with a carrot for a brain. But, I'm married to it. 'Cause of some crock of a wedding we walked into only because the two of us thought you'd be dead within a week. You made me promise you that you wouldn't live like this. So now what the hell am I supposed to do? Smother you with a pillow? Shoot you up with an overdose of morphine? Not really psyched about that! Leave you? Not really psyched about that either! So I guess I'm kind of screwed right? I mean, not as bad as you, but not a freakin walk in the park either! I'm sorry Iz.
Izzie: No, I told you to get it off your chest. You did.
Alex: Did you forget yet?
Izzie: Nope. Not yet. Give me a minute.
Owen: Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't... I didn't know you were here.
Cristina: No. Wait, wait. I... love... you.
Owen: I... I love you too
Cristina: No. Just... I love... you. I said... I said I love you! Me. Cristina Yang. What...You traumatized me.
Owen: You know that I am... I'm so sorry about that.
Cristina: Damn it. No, not about the choking. It's like you come here, and you pull our my icicle, and you make me love you, and I can't... I don't want to. I can't breathe... without you.
Owen: You can do this Cristina. We can do this. All you have to do is just meet me half way. All you have to do is say yes. All you have to do is say yes.
Arizona: Maybe I don't understand people, I don't see things. So, maybe I just don't get what's going on with you or why you're so mad. But, I do think it's awesome. I think that George joining the army is awesome.
Callie: Um, shut up.
Arizona: Um, No. You asked me who I was. I am a person who thinks that what George is doing is dangerous, and terrifying, and brave. He's going to serve his country. He's going to risk his life to save the men and women who make it possible for you and I to sleep safely in our beds. I'm a person who thinks that, that is brave. And I am a person who stood in an airplane hanger, and watched them unload my brother's body in a coffin. And, all we got was a flag. My brother died over there because there weren't enough doctors Callie. So, for my money, George O'Malley is a patriot. He's a hero, and I am grateful that he exists. So yeah, the word I use is awesome. That's who I am.
Callie: (grabs her hand) I'm sorry.
Meredith: How's she doing? Any better?
Meredith: Damn. Well, I'm going to city hall to go do the thing.
Cristina: Seriously? It doesn't seem like the day for it.
Meredith: Look at Alex. He's in there working so hard every day, and she doesn't know. And, if she stays like this she may never know how much he loves her. And that girl Amanda, she's in there loving a stranger. She thinks that's her prince charming. I mean, he's probably gonna die today. Chances are. So yeah, I'm gonna go get married, because I think it's important to take the time to tell the people you love how much you love them while they can hear you. I love you Cristina Yang. (smiles)
Cristina: You have changed.
Meredith: Mmmm... Maybe I have. What?
Cristina: I'm gonna hug you.
Amanda: Is he gonna be ok?
Meredith: We'll know more in the morning. Go ahead.
Cristina: She just had brain surgery, and an incredibly aggressive course of IL2. She needs rest.
Alex: She needs to exercise whatever memory she's got left before it all turns to mush.
Cristina: Well, she's not gonna heal with you barking orders at her like a cave man.
Alex: Butt out Yang.
Cristina: You know what, she's my patient. I don't care if you're her husband.
Alex: Look, she...
Cristina: You wanna see how fast I can get your visiting hours don't to zero?
Alex: She signed a DNR. She signed a frickin DNR and made me promise she'd come out of this with a life. Not in a hospital bed, not with no brain. I had to promise she'd have a life. You wanna know what happens if she can't make any new memories? Forget about being a doctor. She's gonna need round the clock baby sitters. We get an apartment together, she can't even find a way to the damn toilet. Tracker on her ankle incase, god forbid, she wanders out the front door!
Cristina: Alex, you can handle this. She will get better.
Alex: Maybe. Maybe not. It's on me. Her future is on me.
Izzie: (reads) Shepherd got your whole tumor. Oh my god, Alex, why didn't you tell me. Oh my god (alex points to "Your memory sucks!" ) Oh.
Alex: But, we're working on it. You remember what time you woke up this morning?
Izzie: Um, not exactly.
Izzie: 7:45. O'Malley joined the army. What!
Alex: Yeah he's gonna be a trauma surgeon in Iraq. What time did you wake up?
Izzie: 7:45. He's gonna get killed.
Alex: Yeah, we're dealing with it.
Izzie: Did you know about this George thing?
Cristina: Yep, can and fodder. I'm just gonna take some more blood.
Alex: Last time we checked your potassium was 6.3. When did you wake up?
Izzie: Um, I'm... really I can't quite remember.
Alex: 7:45. 6.3. 7:45
Izzie: O'Malley joined the army? George?
Alex: We're dealing with it. What's your potassium?
Alex: Iz, what's your potassium?
Cristina: You know what, why don't we just give her the chart to read and try to memorize. Ok, I can talk to you about her hypokalemia.
Derek: How's the arm?
Mark: The nerves are still intact, I just have to reattach the vessels.
Callie: You ready for me?
Owen: Almost done with the major internal crush injuries, the pelvis will be all yours in a minute. Get me some more laps please.
Mark: You think you'd do it? Step in front of a bus for a perfect stranger?
Callie: We all like to think we would but...
Derek: It's more or less what major Hunt has been doing every day for the last couple of years.
Owen: No, guys did it. I just came in behind them with a dust pan and a broom and swept up.
Derek: You sewed up soldiers under fire. You didn't sweep up.
Owen: How do you think O'Malley's gonna do over there. You think he can handle it?
Callie: No, I don't.
Derek: i think he's gonna surprise us all.
Mark: I think he's coming back in a body bag.
Meredith: I think you all should just shut up! Just shut the hell up! Please, just shut up!
Arizona: Hey, I thought you were in surgery?
Callie: I'm on my way.
Arizona: Have you talked to Bailey about this peade's and tucker thing?
Callie: No, I've only talked to Bailey about the army thing and George.
Arizona: Are you upset with me?
Callie: Hah, no I'm awesome.
Callie: No, do not. Do not Calliope me. Ok, you said it was awesome. George. Sweet, kind George, who can't even kill a fly is joining the army to go to Iraq in the middle of a war and you said awesome.
Arizona: It is, awesome.
Callie: No, it is not awesome. God, who are you?
