Callie Torres Quotes
Mark: I got you a present.
Callie: I told you, you can't give me money. Even if you are a fancy plastic surgeon. I am not your charity case. I am not your mistress. I am your friend, your equal. So...
Mark: It's not money.
Callie: Oh really? 'Cause I was just doing the poor but proud thing for show before I accepted your government cheese.
Mark: It's better than money. Wait. She fell out of a tree and broke all her limbs.
Callie: Oh, that is better.
Callie: Hey, so, I can't afford rent.
Cristina: Owen just told me to "take care now."
Callie: Nice, it's three words.
Arizona: Yeah, it's more than she's getting from any of her family.
Callie: My mom's silent, my ant's silent, my sister Aria... I know. I know how much power my father wields, but, seriously. What am I, invisible? Dead to them? To my mother?
Arizona: You just have to give them some more time.
Cristina: Why can't you just tell them you guys broke up? It's no ones business who you go out with anyway. Right?
Arizona: And I will leave you to ponder that.
Callie: You really I should lie?
Cristina: I really think you should pay rent. But, you know, whatever. Take care now.
Arizona: What happened?
Callie: He ah, gave me an ultimatum. He said if I didn't come home, he'd take away my trust fund. He'd cut me off. So, I cut him off. I mean, if he can't accept me for who I am... I cut him off.
Arizona: Are you ok?
Callie: No. I mean yeah, I... don't know.
(Callie starts to cry. Arizona hugs her)
Callie: (rants angrily in Spanish)
Mark: (Mark grabs Callie) HEY! Stop speaking Spanish! 'Cause I have to go to surgery in a minute, and I don't speak Spanish.
Callie: My Dad is taking me home. He's talking to the Chief, and he's making me quite my job, and quit my relationship which he has yet to acknowledge even exists.
Mark: What are you 12? Tell him he's crazy.
Callie: You don't understand. There isn't anything he hasn't done for me. Ok. Nothing. He's paid for my college, he's paid for MED school, I have a huge trust fund because he doesn't want me to worry about anything but being a great doctor. I mean the man has done nothing but support me his whole life.
Mark: Supporting someone and respecting someone aren't the same thing. You need to tell him that.
Callie: Home, he's dragging me home. (rants angrily in Spanish) Who I wanna spend it with (rants angrily in Spanish)
Arizona: Ah, I can see that you're very upset.
(Mark walks in)
Mark: You paged me Robbins?
Arizona: You're her best friend, and I am at a giant loss right now. Not to mention the very sick children...
Mark: Go, I got this.
Callie: Just so you know, I wasn't looking for a relationship. With a he or a she. It just happened. And ah, it feels good with her. It feels easy and ah, comfortable. I'm saying I'm happy. When have you heard me willingly admit that?
Mr Torres: When you lived at home with your mother and me. You were happy then.
Callie: Yeah, well, I was 12. It didn't take much.
Mr Torres: You'll fly home with me today. I'll talk to the Chief, explain the circumstances.
Callie: What? No! No, Dad, No! I'm not moving back home!
Mr Torres: Don't worry everything's gonna be ok.
Callie: Everything is... is ok!
Callie: Dad, Mark is just a friend. I'm happy now. Ok. I'm dating someone now, and I'm happy. Ok?
(Mr Torres lets go of Mark)
Mark: Ah, woah...
Mr Torres: So you're dating again. Well, that's good. That's healthy. I'd like to meet this new gentleman suitor.
Callie: Yeah. Yeah, no, um, sh... They're pretty busy cos they're a doctor here. But, um, you'll love them. You will love them. Because, they're smart, and funny, and both handsome and beautiful and very supportive. Daddy, please be ok with this. (bring Arizona over) Dad. This is Arizona Robins. This is who I'm dating now.
Arizona: And, I really hope you draw the line at throwing women against walls.
Callie: Run! Run for your life!
George: What do you mean run for my life?
(Mr Torres grabs George)
Callie: Oh my god, Dad!
Mr Torres: Give me one good reason I shouldn't kill you right now!
Callie: Dad! Stop it!
Mr Torres: You committed adultery.
Callie: Who hasn't? I slept with him, before we were divorced. So, technically George isn't the only one who cheated.
(Mr Torres grabs Mark)
Callie: Oh god!
Mr Torres: Give me one good reason I shouldn't kill YOU right now!
Mark: Mark Sloan, pleasure to meet you.
Callie: Ok, so I get why I haven't been camped out at Izzie's beside holding her hand today, but...
George: We're not talking about this.
Callie: Why not?
George: Maybe it's the fact that I asked Izzie a hundred times what was wrong, and she just ignored me. And then there's the fact that when she actually needed help she trusted Cristina. Of all people!
Callie: And then there's the fact that she's your best friend and she might die on you. There's also that. Come on. We are going to go wait for Izzie. Come on. George! You were my husband and you slept with her. You are the reason that I wished her dead. You owe me this. You can lie to yourself all you want, but I know you. I loved you once, and I know you care if she lives or dies.
Callie: I wished Izzie Stevens would die. I wished her dead every day, of every week, for I don't even know how long. I woke up every morning, wishing Izzie Stevens would die, and now... What kind of person wishes someone would die? What kind of doctor wishes, knowing how things happen. What kind of doctor wishes...
Arizona: Are you in here, right now, praying for Izzie to die?
Callie: No. I'm praying for her to live.
Callie: Is she doing ok?
Meredith: Ah yeah, well she says she is.
Callie: Do you believe her?
Meredith: No. Not really.
Callie: George, hey. I'm surprised you're not, I mean... isn't there a big presentation happening with Izzie?
George: I didn't even know she was sick. Bailey told me after Cristina told her. Izzie trusted Cristina. I was the very last to know.
Callie: Well I'm sure Izzie wasn't trying...
George: I don't really wanna talk about it any more. What I wanna do is work. Do you have any room on your service?
Callie: Ah yeah. I have 3 hip replacements, and a tib fib repair.
George: Thank you.
