"People die in front of us everyday. But I believe Meredith will survive this. I believe, I believe, I... I believe in the good. I believe that it's been a hell of a year and I believe that, in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, that we will be okay. I believe a lot of things. I believe that... I believe that Denny is always with me... and I believe that if I eat a tub of butter and no one sees, that the calories don't count. And I believe that surgeons who prefer staples over stitches are just lazy. And I believe that you are a man that made a terrible mistake marrying Callie and I believe that because I'm your best friend I can tell you this and we can be okay. I believe that even though you made this mistake you will be okay. I believe we survive, George. I believe that believing we survive... is what makes us survive."

Izzie: Take off your pants.
Alex: Iz, it's a...
Izzie: Be my husband, get undressed, get into bed and hold me. I don't know what you're so mad about and I don't know what you're scared of because you won't talk to me. But, I'm scared too Alex. And I can't... if you won't... If we're gonna have any chance at a life together then I need you to. Please...
Alex: You died in my arms. You died in my arms! You freakin died, and then you left instructions that I wasn't allowed to save your life. You wanna know what I'm scared of? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared to move. I'm scared to breathe. I'm scared to touch you. I can't lose you. I won't survive. And that's your fault. You made me love you, you made me let you in. And then you freaking died in my arms.

IZZIE: "I'm a pretty girl."
IZZIE: "I'm not being arrogant, it's just, it's just kind of a fact. For a long time I made a career from my looks, so I get it, I'm a pretty girl. And not in a 'from a certain angle' way, in an obvious way. Itâ€™s the blonde thing and the big boobs thing. Big boobs are a key to 'obvious pretty' if you know what I'm saying."
RICHARD: "Dr. Stevens-"
IZZIE: "It's how men see me. I'm not a smart girl or an interesting girl, I'm a pretty girl. The blonde and the boobs, it confuses guys into thinking I'm someone else. And I'm used to it. And I'm used to them walking away when they realizeâ€¦ But then Denny goes and asks me to marry him."
RICHARD: "Is that why you cut the wires?"
IZZIE: "He doesn't make me feel like I'm a pretty girl. He makes me feel likeâ€¦ like me. I think he might know me. And so, if I did cut the LVAT wire, and I'm not saying that I did, but if I did, then no. I don't feel guilty. I know that I should. I would if it were anybody else's. But I can't feel anything but happy."
IZZIE: "I'm both."
IZZIE: "I'm both. I'm a surgeon and I am a person who becomes emotionally involved. I will never again cross the line like I did with Denny. I have learned my lesson. But I'm still both, and I'm not going to give up either part of me. And I am not going to apologize for it."
IZZIE: "You're tall."
DENNY: "I know."
MEREDITH: [after Calli leaves the bathroom] "Oh my god, did that just happen?"
IZZIE: [laughs] "I'm having a seizure. I am clearly having a seizure. I am seizing."
MEREDITH: "Oh my God!"
IZZIE: "She didn't wash her hands."
IZZIE: "George, you did good."
GEORGE: "I'm going to have to dodge Burke for the rest of my career. He could kill me and make it look like an accident."
Surgery. It's the thing you come home from, not the thing you come home to.
DENNY: "You're stalking me. You're a stalker."
IZZIE: [smiles] "Can you blame me?"
IZZIE: "Mr. Humphrey? Mr. Humphrey, I'm sorry to wake you."
MR. HUMPHREY: "C'mon! .... What time is it?"
IZZIE: "Ten after five. I'm sorry, I just need to do a brief exam. If you could just sit up for one moment... Thanks. This might be a little bit cold. So just take a deep breath... If you could just take a deep breath."
MR. HUMPHREY: "You're not a doctor!"
IZZIE: "I'm Dr. Stevens, but you can call me Izzie. I'll be helping Dr. Bailey with your biopsy this morning."
MR. HUMPHREY: "No, I don't think so."
