CRISTINA: "When you got shot, I walked away. And you cannot let that go, can you? I'm sticking now. I'm sticking. Do you know how tired I am? Do you know how scared I am every time we go into surgery? But I do it, for you."
PRESTON: "Do you know how scared I am when we go into surgery? I don't have to just worry about my career now. I have to put yours on my back too."
CRISTINA: "We are a team!"
PRESTON: "There is no team. There is no team! There is only me, once again, making allowances for your emotional shortcomings!"
CRISTINA: [pauses] "We shouldn't say anymore."
PRESTON: [pauses] "No. We shouldn't."

CRISTINA: "We crossed the line. Together. I crossed the line with you."
PRESTON: "You dragged me across the line. You made us a team. You told Shepherd I was fine. You said nobody has to know. I was out there on my own. You made us a team.
CRISTINA: "I did what you needed me to do. You were standing there looking at me telling me your whole life was your hands, if you couldn't operate, if you couldn't be Preston Burke."
PRESTON: "That was your concern, not mine!"

"Hear that? I'm a genius."


MRS. O'MALLEY: "First Meredith, then Dr. Torres and now this Dr. Hahn."
MR. O'MALLEY: "O'Malley men are studs!"
MRS. O'MALLEY: "He's no stud. He's just very handsome."
IZZIE: "Okay people, focus. George is not dating Erica Hahn."

IZZIE: "Well, how much did George tell you?"
MRS. O'MALLEY: "Everything. I'm his mother."
IZZIE: "Okay, then you know that Callie has a little bit out there. I mean I have seen more of that girl's body than I have with my own and she's a little too much information for me. I mean nobody needs to be naked that often... He didn't tell you that? Um, I dunno why they broke up. George seemed to really like her and he kinda needed her. I mean, you remember the whole George and Meredith thing."
MR. O'MALLEY: "Wait! George and Meredith?"
MRS. O'MALLEY: "I knew it."
IZZIE: "George didn't tell you that either?"

IZZIE: "Do you mind me asking why you guys switched from Dr. Burke to Dr. Hahn?"
MR. O'MALLEY: "No, we didn't. Georgie did."
IZZIE: "Did he say why?"
MR. O'MALLEY: "Not really, no."
MRS. O'MALLEY: "Did George and Dr. Burke maybe have a falling out?"
IZZIE: "Not that I know of."

PRESTON: "Anything you would have done different, Dr. Hahn?"
DR. HAHN: "Given the size of the wound, I would've given up sooner. So how have you been, Preston? Last time I saw you, you stole my patient's heart. Then you got shot. Karma rocks."
PRESTON: "What brings you all the way from Seattle Presbyterian to Seattle Grace?"
DR. HAHN: "A consult. And knowing how much my being here would annoy you."
PRESTON: "Oh, on the contrary. It's always a pleasure. Though not as much as when you leave."

Cristina: We need a strategy. We have to figure out our story and come up with a plan.
PRESTON: "Cristina, you are too intense."
CRISTINA: "I am too intense? I have been working my ass off making sure nobody here knows. Running your board, learning surgical procedures I shouldn't have to know until my fifth year covering you."
PRESTON: "You're covering me? And I haven't been covering you?"
CRISTINA: "Excuse me?"
PRESTON: "I'm just saying. We're a team."

PRESTON: "I haven't had a tremor in a week."
CRISTINA: "George knows. And this is not any surgery. You're operating on his father."
PRESTON: "I am aware of that and I am fine."
CRISTINA: "Well, he's going to do something. I know him. He's not gonna just stand by and say nothing."
PRESTON: "There's nothing to say. I had a tremor and now I don't."

PRESTON: "Why are you acting like the sky is falling?"
CRISTINA: "The sky isn't falling. It already fell. George knows."
PRESTON: "I was in surgery for 14 hours yesterday and no tremor."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, with me by your side ready to jump in."

MR. O'MALLEY: "Hey Izzie! Honey, this is Izzie."
MRS. O'MALLEY: "Oh yeah, one of the girls that lives with Georgie... and some kind of set-up there."
MR. O'MALLEY: "It's not some kind of set-up. It's what they do these days. Men and women live together without being... you know, men and women. It's like a neural thing."
MRS. O'MALLEY: "So nothing sexual?"
GEORGE: "Mom!"
IZZIE: [laughs] "No, nothing sexual."

JANELLE: "The doctors... hot men... they're all really hot... they are, aren't they? It's not just cause I'm wearing a plate glass window?"
ADDISON: "Nope, they're man candy."
JANELLE: "Good..."

Grey's Anatomy Season 3 Quotes

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."
