Addison Shepherd Quotes
DEREK: "Addison, what are you doing here?"
ADDISON: "What are YOU doing here? You left everything -- your house, your wife, your practice. You had a life. Now you have a girlfriend in Seattle. She seems... sweet."

RICHARD: "You're never interrupting."
DEREK: "She's always interrupting."
ADDISON: "There is a land called Passive Agressiva, and I am their queen."
DEREK: [smiles] "That's all I'm saying... except when you're shrieking about trout."
"Loved. You said you loved her. Past tense. So, I've been shrieking about the trailer."
RICHARD: "So don't move here for Derek. Move for you."
ADDISON: "Excuse me?"
RICHARD: "With your practice based here, and the money I'll put into promoting you, you'll be one of the biggest names outside Manhattan."
ADDISON: "You're serious?"
RICHARD: "I'm ready to put my money where my mouth is."

ADDISON: "Dr. O'Malley, did you get Molly Thompson's test results back from the lab yet?"
GEORGE: [pauses] "No."
ADDISON: "What? Dr. O'Malley, when I assign you to a case, I expect you to give it your undivided attention. Give me one good reason I shouldn't take you off this case!"
GEORGE: [pauses] "I just discovered that Molly Thompson's maiden name is Grey, making her the daughter of Thatcher Grey, meaning that Meredith has a sister she doesn't even know exists. And I donâ€™t care. I donâ€™t. I'm on this case. and... apparently God hates me."
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."
ADDISON: "So, have you made a decision yet, Dr. Stevens?"
IZZIE: [pauses] "What decision..."
ADDISON: "Whether or not you're going to hate me. You're Meredith's friend, and I'm the wicked witch who came in and ruined her life and cheated on Doctor... what is it that you guys call him?"
IZZIE: [gulps] "McDreamy."
ADDISON: "Wow, he must find that embarrassing."
IZZIE: [pauses] "Yeah I think he does."
ADDISON: "Well, you show great potential in my specialty, and since I'm going to be sticking around for awhile, I have a lot to teach if you want to learn. So when you decide how important it is for you to hate me... let me know."
GEORGE: "Dr. Montgomery Shepherd, what are we gonna do? I mean, about Dr. Bailey. Can we drug her?"
ADDISON: "Against her will?"
GEORGE: "No. Well. Yes. I mean, can't we force her to push? If, um... we declare her temporarily insane?"
ADDISON: "You want me to declare Miranda Bailey incompetent? You think that'll help? That it'll make her more inclined, more comfortable giving birth?"
GEORGE: "I don't know, that's why I'm asking you."
ADDISON: "Do you think I'm not doing everything I can to help her? Do you think I'm just out here because, I dunno, I'm feeling lazy, just need a little 'me' time?"
GEORGE: "I was just asking..."
ADDISON: "Stop asking! Because no matter what you ask, the answer is I don't know. I'm doing everything I can. Miranda Bailey's husband is in mortal danger. Actual mortal danger! But there's not a lot I can say to comfort her and there's not a lot anybody can say to comfort me. I'm doing my best. Dr. Bailey is doing her best. Now I need you to do your best, and I need it to be better than standing here asking me the world's stupidest questions. Because I don't know, O'Malley!"
"Ah, what have we here? A gathering of men outside a delivery room. How mid-century of you."
