Grey's Anatomy Season 5 Quotes
Izzie: You can do it. You can cut into my brain again.
Izzie: You can do it, but I don't wanna end up a vegetable.
Meredith: Izzie you won't.
Izzie: No, just listen. I want the surgery right now, but if something goes wrong I don't wanna end up on a ventilator. So, I'm signing a DNR.

George: Izzie! You paged me, are you ok?
Izzie: No, I don't know what to do. I don't know if I should have the surgery. I think I'm gonna die either way. You gotta tell me what to do.
George: You know what to do.
Izzie: No I don't. I don't.
George: Yes, you do. You're just scared to do it. This back and forth is just fear. You've already made the decision. You made it. You made it the second you decided to fight this thing. Just look, look where you started. Look where you are now. I mean, now you're this incredible surgeon, and teacher. You're a doer, remember? You know exactly what you have to do.

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.
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: 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.
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.
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!
