"I'm a surgeon. There ain't no damn slowing down."


"Eating is a sport?"


SOPHIE: [to George] "Ooh, an Irishman! I love the Irish. They have a sparkle, you can see it in the eye, and the swagger. O’Malley, show me the swagger."
GEORGE: [walks]
SOPHIE: "The eyes are right, but you’ll have to work on the swagger!"

GEORGE: "Why is she still here?"
NURSE: "Because I am not a bouncer, and this is not a nightclub."

GEORGE: "I’m putting my foot down, either the dog moves out or I do. Foot, down, now. Me or the dog, which is it? [pauses] You hesitated! She hesitated!"
IZZIE: "You hesitated?"
MEREDITH: "I didn’t hesitate, I was thinking."
GEORGE: "You have to think about it? Fine, I’m moving out right now. Later, I’m moving out later. Right now, I have rounds."

DENNY: "Not good, is it?"
IZZIE: [pauses] "You've got time."
DENNY: "Liar."
IZZIE: "Fine. There's no time."
DENNY: "Now that’s just spiteful."

DEREK: "You realize this requires Meredith's power of attorney."
RICHARD: "I know."
DEREK: "Well, we need to tell her. It's probably better if it comes from you. With me there's baggage. With you, you're just trying to help out a friend."
RICHARD: [pauses] "Right, right."

DEREK: "I'm just trying to help."
MEREDITH: "Well, see this? What you’re doing, being dreamy? It doesn't help. It hurts me. It messes with my head. You have a wife to go home to and I'm guessing she has no idea where you are right now."
DEREK: "No, she doesn't."
MEREDITH: "That's what I thought."

MEREDITH: "What are you doing here?"
DEREK: "There is a clinical trial to slow the progression of early onset Alzheimer's."
MEREDITH: "Okay. Me, you can screw with. My mother? No. Not acceptable."

"Yang? Why are you looking at my fat pregnant belly?"


Grey's Anatomy Season 2 Quotes

DEREK: "Come on, have a drink."
MEREDITH: "I can't have a drink, I'm celibate."
JOE: "You mean sober? She means sober."
MEREDITH: "No, I mean celibate. I'm practicing celibacy. Drinking does not go well with celibacy because it makes everything and everyone seem kind of porn-y. Then my head gets all cloudy and the next thing you know I'm naked. My point is that I'm celibate, and knitting is good for surgical dexterity, so I'm making a sweater."
DEREK: "You? Celibate? I don't buy it."
MEREDITH: "No more men."
ADDISON: "No more men? Really? You? I'm just asking, because we're friends."
Meredith: Every guy I meet turns out to be married.
DEREK: "Oh... ouch."
MEREDITH: "Or Mark."
ADDISON: [walks away] "Okay, I'm going to sit over there now."
MEREDITH: "Sorry. Or, remember the horrible thing I did? Remember George?"
DEREK: "You're making a sweater."
MEREDITH: "I'm making a sweater."

All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
