Meredith: We need to go talk to Izzie.
Cristina: No, we are not talking Izzie into having surgery because your future husband is mad at you.
Meredith: But he has a right to be mad, because we didn't talk Izzie out of surgery as her doctors we did it as her friends.
Cristina: Our job as doctors is to present the options, answer questions, and let the patients decide the course of treatment. That is what we did.
Meredith: Right. Except I may have presented her options as, "You're having this surgery, over my dead body!" He has a right to be mad.
Cristina: Crap!
Meredith: Who is it?
Cristina: Come on.

Izzie: We haven't even been married 24 hours yet, and we've already had our first fight.
Allison: That's a good sign. Fighting leads to good make up sex. Are you watching birds fly around my head again? Am I like totally snow white now?
Izzie: I just don't wanna hurt him.
Allison: He'll come around. It might take a while. But, once that tumor disappears, once you're back at work cutting open other people. He'll come around. Is it humming birds at least? I really like hummingbirds.

Owen: A quick consult Dr. Yang?
Cristina: What are you doing?
Owen: I realized the reason why I haven't told my mother I'm back is because part of me is still over there. I made a commitment to the army that I wasn't able to fulfill. If my unit hadn't been destroyed. I would still be there. So, no wonder I can't sleep at night, or look my mother in the eye. No wonder you and I, we can't move forward. My work there isn't done. Until it is, I have no business being here. So, I've decided to go back.
Cristina: I have to go.
Owen: Cristina
Cristina: What?
Owen: Come on.
Cristina: I'm sorry, what am I supposed to say?
Owen: I could use your support.
Cristina: You don't have it.

Meredith: My mother disappeared right in front of me. Everything she had, everything she was. Her dignity, her memory. In the end she wasn't even my mother anymore.
Derek: Izzie is not your mother. She doesn't have an untreatable brain condition. She has a tumor, and it can be treated. Don't make this personal Meredith.
Meredith: I wasn't.
Derek: You went to Izzie, as a friend, and you made up her mind for her. So, now as my resident, you go back there and change it! Because this tumor will kill her!

Derek: She may be your friend but that doesn't give you the right to go in and talk her out of a surgery you know nothing about. You're not her doctor. You're Swinder's resident, which does not only make it inappropriate, it's unprofessional.
Meredith: Derek.
Derek: You crossed the line Cristina.
Meredith: No she didn't!
Derek: And this...
Meredith: I did. I'm the one who convinced Izzie not to have the surgery. I'm the one you should be yelling at right now.
Cristina: Well, I'm gonna go now. Unless you wanna apologize? (Der looks at her) Ok.

Alex: You're having the surgery.
Izzie: What?
Alex: Shepherd said this is your last shot.
Izzie: Look I under-
Alex: I am your husband, and I say that you are having the surgery!
Izzie: What happened to "this is your decision."?
Alex: That was when I thought you were gonna make the right one! But, you chose wrong so now you don't get to make this decision on your own, because you married me! It's not just your life at stake anymore! It's my life too. My life with you! So you can tell Swinder whatever you want, but I'm telling Shepherd, and I'm telling you that you're having the surgery!

Alex: What's going on?
Cristina: Oh, we're just going over Izzie's IL2 schedule.
Alex: Oh, for after the surgery?
Izzie: I decided not to have the surgery.
Alex: What?
Swinder: Maybe we should come back. Dr. Yang.
Cristina: Yeah.

Arizona: (starts crying) I am mad at you. And, I'm crying because you're the boss. My boss. Which brings up issues of authority and my dad, who you kind of remind me of. Not that you're old, but you command respect. People respect you. I mean, I now I do and I know Bailey does. Which is why I'm mad. Because, it's wrong Sir. It's wrong and mean to use a robot to lure Dr. Bailey back into general surgery, because I don't have a robot. All I have are little kids, and they're not as fun as a robot. And they're not shiny, and new, and silver, and they don't have things coming out of their belly buttons. But, I will fight you, and I will win. Sir.
Richard: You think you can fight me, and win?
Arizona: Yes!
Richard: Good luck.
Arizona: Because I have something that you don't have! I have joy! Sir!

Arizona: (With a stern face, eyes Richard off) Chief.
Richard: Yes Dr. Robbins?
Arizona: Chief.
Richard: Did you wanna tell me something?
Arizona: I am going to cry, and I just want you to know that I know it's going to happen. And, I just want you to ignore it. And, I'm not crying because I'm upset. It's just what happens when I get mad at people of authority.
Richard: You're mad at me?

Richard: Dr. Robbins. Dr. Bailey performed Seattle Grace's first single incision gall bladder removal.
Arizona: Oh wow! Cool.
Richard: Through the patient's belly button.
Arizona: And now it's kind of creepy.
Bailey: No no, you should have seen it. No scars, no bleeding, in about half the time it would have taken laparoscopically.
Richard: You wanna do one after lunch? I've got another colie.
Bailey: You don't mind?
Arizona: Oh so, I guess I'm on my own for this afternoon. My neuroblastoma. No no no no, don't worry. You don't have to. You'll have the rest of your life to do neuroblastoma's.
Bailey: Well then I'll see you after lunch Sir.
Richard: Ok.

Allison: Don't do it. That's my vote. Don't have the surgery. I didn't. I friggin hate surgery.
Izzie: I'm hallucinating Allison. I have really long conversations with dead people, and i see that aren't... Like right now, for example, I'm pretty certain there aren't birds flying over your head, because this is a hospital and that would be weird. But, that's what I'm seeing. I have a brain tumor. Am I really not gonna let them cut it out?
Allison: I didn't let them cut out mine. It's like... ok, one minute I'm this college kid. Rowing crew, and being an idiot, and forgetting to bring my sunscreen, and thinking it doesn't matter. Because, I'm me, and life has turned out pretty good for me. And then the next minute they're cutting into my body every other week. I had 15 surgeries, and then I said... enough. Forget it. I'll rogue through in heaven, or whatever. And then, the IL2 worked. It worked. I come here every 3 weeks, I get my medicine, and I don't have a brain tumor anymore.

Meredith: You couldn't remember anything. You didn't know my name. You didn't know who Derek was. (Mer tears up) You didn't know who Alex was. You couldn't even remember how to speak.
Izzie: How come I don't remember any of this.
Meredith: Because, the tumor is sitting right in the middle of everything that makes you, you. I was standing there talking to you exactly like i am now, only you weren't there. You weren't you. You were gone.
Izzie: So, what do I do?
Meredith: Well, Swinder has a patient. Female, 22 years old, metastatic melanoma.
Izzie: Allison Clarke?
Meredith: After 3 months of the IL2 her mets were gone. All of them. You're not having this surgery.

Grey's Anatomy Season 5 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)

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.

Alex (narrating)
