Grey's Anatomy Season 5 Episode 18: "Stand By Me" Quotes
Cristina: Iz, no we need to talk about it. You've been complaining about being really backed up, and I got you an appointment.
Alex: If you need an enema that bad, maybe you shouldn't have all these fries. (steals some of Izzie's fries)
Meredith: You really booked her an appointment for an enema?
Cristina: You can't just ay that you're all backed up and then just sit there Izzie. If you make the decision to get an enema, then you should get an enema.
Alex: I think that maybe you're the one that's backed up. Solo surgery panic? I tell you what, I'll scrub in with you and if you can't handle it, I'll take over.
Cristina: I, I don't, ok. You know what, I'm just saying enema's can be a serious business.
George: Ok, Izzie, enema's code for what?
Izzie: My enema, my business.
Cristina: Ah, 15 minutes!
Meredith: This is a really strange day.

Cristina: Hey, did you get my page? I got you the appointment. It's in like, 15 minutes. How amazing am I? It usually takes weeks to get in there. Ah, did you take a look at the research.
Izzie: Seriously. Can I just eat?
Cristina: No, I'm sorry you don't have time.
Alex: Time for what?
Izzie: There's... I... an enema.
Cristina: Ah, Izzie's enema.
Izzie: Yes, I was supposed to get an enema today, but I decided it can wait. How about we talk about something else?

Meredith: You are scaring the patients, and you're making this hospital look ridiculous, and you're making us look incompetent.
Intern: But we have...
George: That's not a good idea.
Meredith: Just stay away from each other. So much as a tear, or a glance in each others direction and it's over.
Meredith: No, no, no. Don't talk while I'm talking.
George: It's not...
Meredith: Now just get out. Go. Not together.

Miranda: What in gods name is going on?
Meredith: It's a personal issue, and we are just trying to give them their privacy.
Miranda: Do you think for a second I wanted to get involved with your little intern dramas?
George: We were not this bad.
Miranda: Oh, getting married in Vegas. Shacking up with attendings, cutting LVAD wires. You don't have to like it, but you have to manage it.
Meredith: Oh, we've got it under control.
Intern: (runs down stairs crying) Wait, I love you Megan!

Meredith: So I've covered 2213, 19, and 33.
George: Yeah, okay. I've got 2011, and 2007. Mer, there is something wrong with Izzie.
Meredith: Ah, what do you mean?
George: I don't know. But, I know that there is something wrong.
Meredith: Well you know George, we're already drowning in intern drama. We don't need resident drama too. If it's a problem, she'll tell us. Until then, just ignore it. I repeat, ignore it.

Izzie: That's it. Both of you in the hall now! You really think that was ok? You think that was doctorly?
Mark: (to interns) Go find something else to do. What the hell is going on with you?
Izzie: They were making completely inappropriate jokes at the expense of the patient, right in front of him. I have been trying to teach them and, they were cruel and inappropriate.
Mark: Ok, they were inappropriate. You know what else is inappropriate? This. You. This case is my baby. I've spent 3 years planning for it and you and your emotional life are not about to piss all over it. You're off the case.
Izzie: No, he needs me in there with him. You can't leave him alone with those interns.
Mark: Ok, fine. You wanna be there for his feelings you can be there before and after the surgery. But you're not coming in my OR. Whatever's going on with you Stevens, you'd better get it under control.

George: What the heck do we do with them?
Meredith: Can we shove them in a locker?
George: I guess we should just talk to them.
Meredith: No. We're professionals, and that's clearly personal. Besides, we'll just waste time and we'll never get to see the solo surgery, or the face transplant.
George: Oh, that's a, yeah that's a good point. I guess, well, we should, we should just ignore it then.
Meredith: Yeah, we should just ignore it. It's the professional thing to do.
George: Yeah, professionally ignoring them.

Meredith: It's the not knowing that does it. Not knowing if he's ok. Not knowing if he's coming back. Maybe I've just been dumped. I mean, It's not knowing if I'm single that makes me wanna throw up all day long. You are not listening to me are you?
Cristina: Ah, sorry.
Meredith: No,no. That's okay, I get it. You've got the solo surgery and GI Joe. It's a charmed life. You don't have time for me.
Cristina: I have not had GI Joe. We've kissed a couple of times. It's like friends with benefits, without the benefits.
Meredith: Still no sex?
Cristina: Mmm mmm, not a charmed life.

Derek: How do you live with it? Killing him. Taking him from his wife. How do you live with it?
Callie: We call it malpractice when we make a mistake.
Derek: Yeah. I know what we call it. I'm asking you, when you get up in the morning, how do you look at yourself in the mirror? I'm no... I'm... I'm asking.
Callie: Can I have one of those?

Look, I'm sorry about your patient. I know how hard it can be. I, I had a patient a couple of years ago, a young guy, 50 maybe. Simple knee replacement. He was post op, he was fine. I even told his wife she could go and get him lunch. I mean, it was a simple knee replacement, it was nothing. But, ah, he'd been getting short of breath so I'd put him on blood thinners for a post surgical PE. And, ah, It wasn't until he was vomiting up dark red blood, looking me in the eye, telling me that he was dying... that I figured it out. That I was wrong. That it wasn't a PE, he was bleeding internally. It wouldn't have been fatal, but the blood thinners. God, I will never forget the look on his wife's face. When she came back with that sandwich in her hand, asking me why her husband wasn't in his room anymore.Callie
