MIRANDA: "Anything I can get for you, Dr. Burke?"
PRESTON: "No, I'm fine."
MIRANDA: "There, there must be something."
PRESTON: "It would be nice to have some ice chips. And, uh... a touch of morphine, if I'm allowed. And... Cristina."
MIRANDA: "Coming right up. [pauses] Where is Cristina? Where are... where are all the little suck-ups?"
PRESTON: "Excuse me?"
MIRANDA: "My interns. My ass-kissing, surgery-hungry, competitive suck-ups. Where are they? Why aren’t they here fetching you ice chips and morphine? You know something."
PRESTON: "I'm a patient."
MIRANDA: "Preston Xavier Burke, what have you done with my suck-ups?"

[drinking coffee] "You don't know how much I wish this was bourbon."


MEREDITH: "Alex, do this, for Izzie."
ALEX: "I'm not guaranteeing anything."

CRISTINA: "I'm not involved."
IZZIE: "What if this was Burke? What if you were me?"
CRISTINA: "This is bad. This is bad and serious and against a lot of rules. It's not fun for me."
IZZIE: "What if you were me?"
CRISTINA: "Well, I wouldn't have fallen in love with a patient."
IZZIE: "You fell in love with an attending."
CRISTINA: "Well so did Mer, so what's the point?"
MEREDITH: "The point is we can't help who we fall in love with."

CRISTINA: "He's... he's been shot."
IZZIE: [pause] "Burke's not coming."
MEREDITH: "Are you okay?"
CRISTINA: "I'm fine."
IZZIE: "Burke's not coming."
GEORGE: "Why didn't I take the internship in San Diego? None of this would be happening if I was in San Diego."
IZZIE: "Burke's not coming."
CRISTINA: "No, Izzie, Burke is not coming. I know you're having problems here, what with your murder charges and your unbelievebly stupid idea about stealing a heart, but Burke's kinda busy right now."

BURKE: "I need… you to… to go check on Denny Duquette."
CRISTINA: "Okay... That was my best supportive girlfriend and you kinda ruined it with medicine. But it's okay."

CRISTINA: [after realizing patient is the one who shot Preston] "That guy shot you. Move."
NURSE: "He's a lost cause."
NURSE: "He's circling the drain."
CRISTINA: "You shouldn't get to kill yourself, you do not get off that easily. [to nurse] Push hard dose epi!"
NURSE: "Dr. Yang-"
CRISTINA: "What? I want to be able to tell his family I did everything I could to save his pathetic, miserable life. Give him three of epi. Now."

DENNY: "What? You like your men sick and feeble? You don't dig healthy guys?"
IZZIE: "I dig you."

IZZIE: "You press that code button and I will hurt you. Not a lot, because we're friends. But enough so that things will break and you lie on the floor out of my way."
GEORGE: "Izzie."
IZZIE: "You have a decision to make. You can stay here and help me with this, or you can leave. What's it gonna be, George?"

DEREK: "They just lost their daughter."
ADDISON: "I know. That's my point, Derek. They need to face that. She's not coming back."
DEREK: "A little sensitivity would be nice here, okay? They love their daughter. They don't want to let go. Alright?"

[to Izzie] "A kiss is worth a thousand words."


IZZIE: [trembling] "I told a lie. To Dr. Burke."
CRISTINA: "Good for you, fight the power."
IZZIE: "No... it's bad... bad."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
