GEORGE: "Are you sure you know what you're doing?"
ALEX: "It's a shot of penicillin, George. Be grateful that I am doing this. I've already seen more of you than I ever wanted to. I'll fight the nightmares for a week."

[narrating] "But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely, because almost everyone has that smallest bit of faith and hope that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true. At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different than your dream. The castle, well it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happily ever after -- just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in awhile, people may even take your breath away."

MEREDITH

[to himself] "This is George, George has a hot date."

GEORGE

MEREDITH: "I tried to talk Dr. Shepherd out of that clot surgery. What is wrong with me?"
ALEX: "Basically, you tried to kill a guy."
CRISTINA: [to Alex] "Basically, you're an ass."

CANCER PATIENT: "It’s our decision and that’s okay."
CRISTINA: "So why do you need my approval?"
CANCER PATIENT: "I just want you to understand."
CRISTINA: "Well, I don’t."

MEREDITH: "You know, you keep taking everything on faith. How do you know what’s real and what’s not?"
DEREK: "You just do. You know some people would call this a relationship. Time to exchange keys, leave your toothbrush over."
MEREDITH: "Who, who would call it that?"
DEREK: "Me, I would."
MEREDITH: "And I’m supposed to believe you. Show me something. Give me a reason to believe."

PRESTON: "I've never done a bovine replacement before, I don't know what I'm doing."
CRISTINA: "So look it up, research it and get someone to assist you."
PRESTON: "It’s not that easy."
CRISTINA: "This is a problem that has a solution, Burke. There are a lot of problems that don't."

CRISTINA: "Look, if you think you’re gonna get any, think again. I'm not in the mood."
PRESTON: "I'm not in the mood either."
CRISTINA: "Good. What do you want?"
PRESTON: "Nothing, I just haven't seen you all day."
CRISTINA: "So I'm working."

GEORGE: "How’s a pompous cocky jackass like you always have women all over him?"
ALEX: "Little bluebell pills. Lots of them."
GEORGE: "Oh, c'mon."
ALEX: "Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee. O'Malley, you think too much. Can’t you see it? You gotta dance and jab, dance and jab! Like me. I am the Ali of this place."

"You're into me. I can tell. Dr. Small and Angry was a hot appetizer, but you, doc, are a smorgasbord of lust."

PATIENT

"Well, you were wrong. You don't always get what you expect do you."

MEREDITH

CRISTINA: "Dr. Bailey, I want off the psychic case, I'll take whatever you've got. Can I switch?"
MIRANDA: "Ask nicely."
CRISTINA: "What? This is me doing nicely."

Grey's Anatomy Season 1 Episode 8 Quotes

CRISTINA: "Okay, you know the talking part?"
LADY AT CLINIC: "Yeah?"
CRISTINA: "I’m not interested."

"You know when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales? That fantasy of what your life would be -- white dress, prince charming who’d carry you away to a castle on a hill. You’d lie in your bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa clause, the tooth fairy, prince charming -- they were so close you could taste them. But eventually you grow up and one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely because almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope and faith that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true."
