Grey's Anatomy Season 5 Episode 7: "Rise Up" Quotes
Alex: Was there this much blood in his urine before?
Lexie: No ...
Cristina: He's going to need a bedside-
Alex: Dibs on that.
Cristina: No no no. That's mine. And his bladder repair is mine too.
Owen: Get away from that man right now!
Owen: Are you deaf, Karev? I said step away from him.
Alex: I'm just saying that we're saving his li-
Owen: No what you did was pick over him like vultures. What you did was treat a man who's fighting to live like he's already dead. You have no sense, no decency and no respect!
Cristina: The wife's here, of the beating victim. She ID'd her husband, so I-
Owen: What's his name? I was wondering if you found out his name so that he would become a person to you. They're all people, you know. This is not a game or a competition, who gets surgeries and who doesn't. They're people and we get to save them. Now you're good. You're excellent and you can win all the contests. But if that's why you're doing this then you shouldn't be. Did you find out his name?
Cristina: My dad died when I was nine. In a car accident, I was with him in the car. While we waited for the ambulance, I tried to keep his chest closed, so he wouldn't bleed so much. When he died, my hands felt his heart stop beating. That's why I do this. It's also why I win all the contests. The patient's name is Tom. [leaves]
Owen: Single malt scotch.
Erica: I can't believe I didn't know this.
Callie: Erica, the Chief is right-
Erica: No. You. I don't know you. At all.
Erica: I went to the Chief about Izzie Stevens and he completely shut me down. Well, we'll see what he says when I report this to UNOS.
Callie: Wait, what? Why? What good would come of that?
Erica: What do you mean?
Callie: What possible good would that do? Would it affect your patient's outcome?
Erica: My patient wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her!
Callie: So you're going to report this to UNOS and cost this hospital its transplant certification? Cost its patients organs? Cost people their jobs? Cost Izzie Stevens her career ...
Erica: Wait, so you're taking Izzie Stevens' side in this? Over mine?
Callie: She's a doctor. She's one of our doctors. There's a reason we have each other's backs, Erica.
Erica: Please, don't talk to me about a code. Because this is not that.
Callie: No, this is that.
Callie: Look, I don't know what happened between Denny Duquette and Izzie Stevens that night, but unless you were in the middle of that situation, I don't see how you can make a judgment.
Erica: Easy. There's right, and there's wrong. And this, was wrong. And illegal. There is no gray area here. You can't kind of think this is OK. You can't kind of side with Izzie Stevens. And you can't be kind of a lesbian.
Callie: Yes, I can.
Erica: I'm gonna stop you right there. Look. I don't get attached to patients. But I like this guy, and I've spent almost two years giving him hope, and then taking it away. This procedure will buy him time until he can get another shot at a transplant. We need to make sure it works, okay?
Izzie: Of course.
Erica: Have you familiarized yourself with the case?
Meredith: Michael Morris, 44-year-old male with congenital hypertrophic cardio myopathy. Failed medical treatment at Seattle West. Been waiting on a heart transplant since narrowly missing out on one on May 14 of Two Thousand and ...
Izzie: Wait... May 14 what?
Izzie: That's Denny's heart. That's the heart I stole for Denny.
Cristina: 3, run these by the lab, and then go down to the morgue and get the forms for an unclaimed body.
Lexie: He needs a chest tube, right? I was just thinking, with the solo surgery coming up, that-
Cristina: With the solo surgery coming up your job is to impress me. Go.
Owen: Dr. Yang with the solo surgery coming up your job is to impress me. You're planning for his death while I'm fighting for his life.
Cristina: I was trying to be prepared, I'm sorry ...
Owen: I can't use sorry. I can use a doctor. Be one.
Richard: Ladies and gentlemen. Allow me to introduce Stan. State of the art computerized patient simulator. Stan can educate you in patient management, trauma assessment and care. He breathes, he pulsates, he hemorrhages, he seizes, he secretes. And he speaks. Hello Stan.
Stan: Hello, doctor. I am not feeling well.
Richard: Stan will tell you what he needs. And he's more forgiving than most patients. You kill him, he'll keep coming back for more. So make good use of him, people.
George: We're operating on robots now?
Alex: Can we please go back to pigs.
Cristina: Yeah, what about people?
Miranda: Well when the Chief decides which one of you gets to do the first solo surgery, you'll wanna be ready.
