Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Episode 9: "New History" Quotes
[narrating] Doctors live in a world of constant progress and forward motion. Stand still for a second, and you'll be left behind. But as hard as we try to move forward, as tempting as it is to never look back, the past always comes back to bite us in the ass. And as history shows us again and again, those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it.Meredith
Izzie: He needs a spinal tap. His falling could have burst an anyerism and some bleeds show up on a spinal tap that don't on the CT.
Charles: And some doctors enjoy torturing patients because they messed up and don't know what they're gonna do with the rest of their lives.
Izzie: You are the one that got me fired. You owe me this, you little bitch. Unless of course you want me to find that snotty Reed, what's her name? Tell her how much you love her. Cause I will.
Bailey: I'm going to say a name and then you are going to tell me that you are not having an affair with her... Izzie Stevens.
Chief: What? (starts laughing)
Bailey: That's why you ignored the DNR, that's why you fired her, that's why the two of you were in your office screaming at each other. It is not funny. That girl has cancer, and a husband, and... yeah okay I know it's none of my business but it's now affecting people's lives.
Callie: The Chief's your work-husband and you're his work-wife. You look our for each other, you take care of each other, there's nothing wrong with it, it's like me and Sloan.
Mark: Excuse me?
Callie: Nobody's talking to you. He's my work-husband but he has a girlfriend, I have a girlfriend, but nothing going on between us.
Mark: I mean, there was at one point...
Callie: You're not helping.
Bailey: Neither one of you are helping. Adele, I promise you there is nothing going on.
Adele: Something is going on because he hasn't been in his bed all week.
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?
Alex: So are you back or...
Izzie: Oh did you want me to come back? Cause you told the Chief you had serious doubts about my abilities to be here.
Izzie: You went behind my back and told the Chief I wasn't ready to be here.
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.
[narrating] Sometimes the past is something you just can't let go of. And sometimes the past is something we'll do anything to forget. And sometimes we learn something new about the past that changes everything we know about the present.Meredith
Cristina: She attended state school!
Alex: So did I!
Cristina: She's skinny and blonde.
Alex: So is Mer.
Cristina: She's annoying.
Alex: So are you.
