Miranda Bailey Quotes
Bailey: Oh Adele. Oh I'm so sorry, I sent the Chief into surgery. Do you want me to-
Adele: What I want is for you to tell me the truth. Are you having an affair with my husband?
Bailey: I am not having an affair with your husband!
Adele: I saw the way you handled him just now.
Bailey: Handled! I did not... handle... there was no handling... we work together.
Adele: You spend every waking moment together, you finish each others sentences, you read each others minds. You're more married to that man than I am.
Callie: Yeah, but that's just because they're husband and work-wife.
Bailey: Excuse me?
Mark: If it's bad news, I don't wanna wake her.
Bailey: Wake her.
I had 5 interns. 4 of you have been on this table. One of you has cancer, one of you died. You'd better not pull anything funny on me Grey.
Meredith: Hey. What are you doing here? (Smiling)
Derek: You didn't think I was gonna let you do this by yourself, did you?
Bailey: Ah ah, this is not how this is going to work. (Looks at Cris) Do I need to find you something to do?
Cristina: No. I have a penis.
Derek: I'm gonna sit by her head, and I won't say a word.
Bailey: Shepherd, this is my OR.
Derek: I respect that Dr. Bailey, but this is my wife that you're cutting into. (Mer Smiles)
Lexie: He's still sleeping.
Bailey: Good, he needs his rest.
Lexie: Dr Bailey, I um. I was wondering if you could lie. If, if you could lie to the transplant board and tell them that he's been sober for a year. Um, they trust you. They'll listen to you. And, maybe then he could, he could get on the list.
Bailey: Dr Grey, I have 15 other patients all waiting for liver transplants. 15 people in an untenable situation. None of whom drank themselves into it. So no, I will not lie. Not for you, not for anyone. Do you have any other questions I can answer?
Meredith: Is he dead?
Bailey: We rushed Dr Grey's labs. She wasn't a match.
Meredith: Oh, ok. What about Holly?
Lexie: Ah, you... Molly. Our sister?
Lexie She lives at an army base with her husband in Bahrain. Plus, she has a history of DBT so she can't be a donor.
Richard: Meredith, we didn't call you here to... We thought you should know before we go in and tell him. Just incase.
Meredith: Right. Right, no. Thank you for keeping me in the loop. Thank you. I have to um, go prep for my surgery now. Ok.
Bailey: You've got end stage cirrhosis, and the only thing that can save your life is a transplant.
Lexie: How did it happen this fast?
Alex: He bathed it in Gin.
Thatcher: Your friends right. Except for the Gin. I was a scotch man. What's... what's the next step here? Can I get on a list?
Richard: Um, Thatcher, the transplant board has a rule here. An alcoholic has to be sober at least a year before he qualifies for a donor liver.
Thatcher: I'm only 90 days.
Lexie: I'll do it. I'll do it today. I'll go get tested right now.
Lexie: No, they just take a piece. My liver will regenerate.
Thatcher: I can't ask you to do something like that. It's major surgery.
Lexie: You're not asking. You're my dad. You want a kidney? I'll throw in one of those too.
Bailey: Karev, I'm gonna need you to get Mr Crawley's wrist x-rayed while I get her up to MRI.
Karev: Why can't one of these fetuses baby sit? If that huge things a triple A I want in.
Lexie: I can do the wrist.
Bailey: Dr Karev has more experience.
Lexie: The patient is paranoid and hypervisulent. Which means he's bound to pick up on the fact that Dr Karev doesn't want to be here. He may interpret that as Dr Karev being out to get him. I aced my psych clerkship.
Look, I am an attending. And, I am a single mother. And I lost O'Malley. And um, I just can't. I can't care anymore. Stevens is not my child. O'Malley was not my child. I have to stop treating them... I just have to stop caring so much. 'Cause I can't keep feeling... feeling like this. Not at work. I have to save the feeling for my son, who needs it. I just can't keep giving it away here. I can't. I won't.
Cristina: She asked me a question, I was right to answer it. I did my job. A patient asked me to disclose the risks of a surgical procedure and I am required by law and my oath to do so. If you know a way to sugar coat a colostomy bag I would like to hear it.
Bailey: If you know a more respectful way to speak to an attending surgeon I'd like to hear that. Until you do, you don't talk to me. You're off my service.
Cristina: Ok, ok. Seriously! What is your problem?
Bailey: Where do you get off killing my patients Yang?
Bailey: When you take it upon yourself to talk that girl out of a life saving surgery, you're killing her.
Cristina: I didn't talk her... She had questions about the surgery. You left the room.
Bailey: No, I left the room to give a very fragile, very distraught patient time and space to accept what's being asked of her. Then and only then would I have discussed the possible risks, with I'm certain, more tact and sensitivity than you've ever displayed in all the time that I've known you.
Cristina: She asked...
Bailey: No! I don't care what she asked you, and if she asked you anything else you're only answer will be "Let me ask my Attending."
Bailey: Ok, any pain here? Now, take a deep breath. Any dizziness when you stood up? Take a deep breath.
Bailey: Ok. You are going home. You are gonna come back in 12 days for another round of IL2 and then you have your PET scan 2 weeks after that. But, there's no need for you to keep living in this bed. You should take it easy. You are still a cancer patient, but you're no longer a surgical patient.
Izzie: Thank you Dr. Bailey. I don't know how to... thank you.
Bailey: Ah, don't forget to sign the discharge papers before you leave.
