Grey's Anatomy Season 2 Episode 11: "Owner of a Lonely Heart" Quotes
[narrating] "Four hundred years ago, another English guy had an opinion on being alone. John Donne. He thought we were never alone. Of course it was fancier when he said it. No man is an island entire onto himself. Boil down that island talk and he just means that all anyone needs is someone to step in and let us know we're not alone. And who's to say that someone can't have four legs. Someone to play with, or run around with, or just hang out."MEREDITH
MEREDITH: "You're still you?"
DEREK: "I'm still me."
GEORGE: "By the way, uh ... Sorry you had to see that little scene earlier."
PATIENT: "Oh, you mean the talk with the girl who isn't your girlfriend about the girl who you'd like to be your girlfriend?"
PATIENT: "So is it true? Do you like this Meredith?"
GEORGE: [pauses] "I love her."
PATIENT: [smiles] "Sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, they just can't love you back in the same way. Believe me, son. Living with a woman who can't love you back? Way lonelier than being alone."
"When Derek broke up with you, nobody told you were better off without him. It's not supportive, it's condescending. I was there for you, and the one time I need you? Just go away, Meredith."IZZIE
DEREK: "The first person I killed? I was a second-year resident. James Hanson. Go home, Dr. Karev. There's nothing you can do for him now."

IZZIE: "I'm telling you, Meredith was all over him."
CRISTINA: "Seriously, she was all over him? What, like mounting him, with all the babies watching? Seriously?"
IZZIE: "Well, she would have if I hadn't interrupted."
GEORGE: "She was talking to him."
IZZIE: "You don't talk to bastards who cheat on their girlfriends, George. That's the rule."
GEORGE: "You weren't officially his girlfriend."
IZZIE: "That's not the point."
GEORGE: "It is kind of the point. You don't see me getting all emotional over people I'm not dating."
IZZIE: "Really. You wanna go there?!"
GEORGE: [pauses] "No."
IZZIE: "I'm having a moment here. Don't mess with me!"
CRISTINA: "You're not going to have a nervous breakdown and kill yourself, are you?"
CRISTINA: "So, there's no chance you'll kill us?"
IZZIE: [storms off]
GEORGE: [tries to hide smile] "Okay, that was wrong on so many levels."
CRISTINA: "But it was good though?"
GEORGE: [laughs] "Yeah, it was."

[to George, Olivia] "You know what time it is? Time for you two kids to kiss and make up, that's what time it is!"PATIENT
CONSTANCE: "He said he would leave me if I didn't help him. Things got out of control. He was gonna leave me. He was all I had."
CRISTINA: "Clearly being alone has its benefits."
"One day? Four razor blades and that's all you can give me? Come on, sugarplum, I thought we were having fun."CONSTANCE
