Alex Karev Quotes
Love comes and goes. Surgery doesn't.
Meredith: Izzie leaves and Mark gets a kid, and you two decide the best way to deal is to get drunk and mash your genitals together?

Lexie: Are we calling me a dirty mistress?
Meredith: That was two years ago and his wife didn't have cancer!
Lexie: Because I've been with like six guys in my whole life. Alex and I, we've done it before. I was recycling, it was like good for the environment.
Alex: Izzie's gone. I was horny. She was there.
Lexie: Oh crap, I am a dirty mistress!
Lexie: I'm too young to be a grandma. I'm supposed to work like a dog, come home and do stupid things.
Alex: I know something stupid you can do.
Turns out your stupid Post-It is 10 times the marriage my church wedding ever got to be. I'm moving on.

Alex: He was making cuts, I was protecting you.
Izzie: You got me fired Alex.
Alex: Is that what you think?
Izzie: This job was the one thing I had left, the one thing, and you took that away from me. You interfered and got me fired. I have forgiven you for a lot Alex. I've had to forgive you for a lot, but I cannot forgive you for this.
Alex: You made an assumption. You decided I did something. You didn't ask. You didn't hang around to talk. I am your husband and you didn't give me the benefit of the doubt. So you know what? I can't forgive you either.
Cristina: She attended state school!
Alex: So did I!

Izzie: Hey, my stomach cancer patient, we're going for the surgery. We're gonna do it. Hunt actually listened to me.

Alex: I don't know how to deal with this. I mean, I don't camp. My parents were lounge lizards. I was raised in a bar.
Cristina: Extracting the arachnid.
Alex: And there's no plumbing. I mean, the, the, the toilet. It empties into a bucket, underneath the trailer. A crap bucket! And Izzie's all... marriage is an adventure. Just the two of us, exploring the wild. I married freaking Lewis and Clark.
Cristina: I guess I'm done.
Alex: That's it. I mean, I'm tellin' her. We're moving back to Meredith's. I'm done.
