PATIENT: "I was struck by lightning."
MEREDITH: "You mean you fell out of a tree that was hit by lightning."
PATIENT: "Same difference."
MIRANDA: "Actually, medically, it's not the same difference. And it would be helpful if, from now on, you told us the whole truth!"
RICHARD: "Ellis Grey... her daughter is in the internship program here. Ellis has advanced Alzheimer's Disease. She's in a nursing home. I visit there once a week if I can."
OLLIE: "You're visiting the woman who made you hit rock bottom?"
RICHARD: "I have no choice."
OLLIE: "How long have you been sober?"
RICHARD: "Over 17 years now."
PRESTON: [to Izzie and Alex] "Neither of you are scrubbing in. Please leave."
ALEX: "Fine, I'll watch from the deck."
PRESTON: "No, you won't. Whatever's going on here, I don't need this negative energy anywhere near my O.R."
CRISTINA: "This is the women's restroom."

[narrating] "Superstition lies in the space between what we can control and what we can't. Find a penny, pick it up, all day long you'll have good luck. No one wants to pass up a chance for good luck. But does saying it 33 times really help? Is anyone actually listening? Why do we bother doing those strange things? We rely on superstitions because we're smart enough to know we don't have all the answers.. and that life works in mysterious ways. Don't diss the juju, from wherever it comes."MEREDITH
[narrating] "My college campus has a magic statue. Itâ€™s a tradition for students to rub its nose for good luck. My freshman roommate really believed in it and insisted on rubbing its nose before every exam. Studying might have been a better idea. She flunked out her sophomore year. But we all have little superstitious things that we do. If it's not believing in magic statues, it's avoiding sidewalk cracks or always putting our left shoe on first. Knock on wood. Step on a crack, break your mother's back. The last thing we want to do is offend the gods."MEREDITH
MEREDITH: "George is still ignoring me."
CRISTINA: "Just ignore him back."
MEREDITH: "Derek says I should apologize until he listens."
CRISTINA: "Derek says?"
MEREDITH: "It's good advice. He's my friend. Thatâ€™s good friend advice."
CRISTINA: "This is great. No blood, no guts, no lives to save. It's dead quiet..."
MIRANDA: "Yang, did you really just say that?"
CRISTINA: "Say what?"
GEORGE: "The 'q' word."
IZZIE: "That's like saying 'Macbeth' in the theater."
CRISTINA: "Oh please. You think because someone says its quiet that it will meanâ€¦"
CRISTINA: [Hands Dr. Burke his cap]
PRESTON: "Thank you. How long have you had this? It's one of my favorites."
CRISTINA: "You're welcome. You know you donâ€™t need it."
CRISTINA: "I keep that cap in my locker because every morning I look at it and I'm reminded of what I'm here for and what I want to be. A great surgeon. One who is decisive and executes and who doesnâ€™t need a piece of clothing to give him an edge in surgery. You don't need it.
PRESTON: [pauses] "I know. You're right."
CRISTINA: "I know I'm right."
DENNY: "Aww, don't cry."
IZZIE: "I cannot fall for a patient."
DENNY: "Good luck with that."
IZZIE: [kisses Denny]
IZZIE: "What did you say to him?"
ALEX: "What are you talking about?"
IZZIE: "Why does he think he's dying?"
ALEX: "Maybe because he is."
IZZIE: "Just so we're clear... we're over, Alex. This is over."
ALEX: "What? You're breaking up with me over a corpse!"
IZZIE: "No! No! I'm breaking up with you because... on your very best day, that corpse... is twice the man you will ever be. You're not good enough for me, Alex. You're not good enough for anyone."
GEORGE: [to Calli Torres] "Hi. I didnâ€™t call. I should have called. I justâ€¦" [Calli walks off]
GEORGE: [calls her on the phone]
GEORGE: "Hi, this is George O'Malley calling. You gave me your phone number. I should have called sooner, I know, but I'm calling now and I just wanted to know if... maybe you wanted to go out with me sometime. Because I love to watch you set bones. And I rarely spend that much time in a woman's restroom and... I really like you. So... is that a yes?"
