"Grey's Anatomy: Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer (#2.12)" (2005)
[Bailey who is pregnant, is rubbing her stomach and has labored breaths as she walks through the halls of the hospital. The interns are talking as they follow her]
Dr. George O'Malley: Look at her belly. She's almost as wide as she is tall.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Are her ankles swollen? Is that why she's waddling?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: What's gonna happen to us when she goes on leave?
Dr. Cristina Yang: She's going on leave?
Dr. Meredith Grey: What do you think happens when people push babies out of their vagina?
[George laughs]
Dr. George O'Malley: Do you think we're going to get a new resident?
Dr. Alex Karev: Nah. They'll probably just let us wander around unattended. See how much damage we can do.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Yeah, well, you would know.
[Enthusiastic]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Hey, guys, we should all get together and get Bailey a Christmas gift for the baby, or we could, um, organize some sort of Secret Santa thing.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Okay, listen Tiny Tim, you can take your...
[George and Meredith move in next to each other to block Cristina from Izzie]
Dr. George O'Malley: Sounds great.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Secret Santa sounds great, Izzie.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Okay.
[turns around and leaves]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [Cristina has an appalled look on her face]
Dr. Meredith Grey: We're being supportive.

[Room is filled with noisy children, playing, which continues throughout the scene]
Dr. Meredith Grey: Tim Epstein, 38, fell off the roof of his house.
[One of his children is sitting on him, sticking a fake lizard to his forehead]
Tim Epstein: I was, uh, stringing Hanumas lights and a shingle came loose.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Hanumas?
Tim Epstein: Hanumas. Christmukkah. We go all out.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [Smiling] Awesome.
Mrs. Epstein: He fell twelve feet.
Tim Epstein: The good news is, my head broke my fall.
[One of the children flings a fake lizard, which hits Derek in the face, who smiles in surprise]
Dr. Meredith Grey: Uh, there are no visible deformities, but he's definitely having some focal left arm weakness.
Mrs. Epstein: He'll probably be fine. He's always been a little hard-headed.
[Tim laughs, but seems to be in pain]
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Does your head hurt when you laugh?
Tim Epstein: Is that a bad thing?
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Do you wanna follow my finger with your eyes, please?
Jake Epstein: [to Bailey] I know karate.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [Flustered] Hmm? Uh... You know, your husband might need a little, uh, quiet, so, there's a cafeteria right down the...
Tim Epstein: No, no. Whoa. Let 'em stay. Pain or no, I don't wanna miss out on the holidays with my kids.
[Izzie is playing with the kids]
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Who would like to take Mr., uhm, Epstein down for a CT?
[Izzie's hand shoots up]
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Stevens it is.
[Izzie grins]
Dr. Derek Shepherd: [Bailey walks up to the Chief who is surveying the OR board]
Dr. Richard Webber: Anxiety attacks, aneurysms and ulcers.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Must be December.
Patricia: Chief, Adele just called.
Dr. Richard Webber: Tell her I'm in...
Patricia: She knows your not in surgery. And she said to tell you, quote, "We are going to our niece's school pageant this morning. You have known about it for months. And after what you pulled on Thanksgiving..." and then she, started using a great many words I don't feel comfortable repeating.
Dr. Richard Webber: But I have seven surgeons on vacation...
Patricia: And there was something about "divorce".
Dr. Richard Webber: [to Dr. Bailey] You'll have to cover my ulcer excision.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Yes, sir.
[Chief and Patricia are walking away]
Dr. Richard Webber: The woman is unreasonable. When did watching a six-year-old dressed up like a wise man become... You couldn't hang up the phone?

[Izzie walks up to Alex, who is sleeping, and slaps him]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Wake up.
[Alex lifts his head up]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: God. No wonder you failed your boards. What, do you expect to learn this stuff by osmosis?
Dr. Alex Karev: What are you doing here?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [sighs] I'm a farmer, okay? I've been drooling, puking, and crapping in my pants.
Dr. Alex Karev: You came here to help me study?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Well, I'm not actually crapping my pants now, am I?
Dr. Alex Karev: Why would you want to help me after what I did?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Because, it's what JESUS, would freaking do!
Jimmy Shelton: How is she?
Nadia's Mother: Is she gonna be alright?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: She lost a lot of blood, but we were able to replace it and repair the tear. She's going to require several days' observation, but she should make a full recovery.
Jimmy Shelton: Thank God.
Nadia's Mother: Thank God is right, because we're certainly not gonna thank you. We should sue you for all you're worth. We sat here, and sat here, and sat here, and sat here...
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [Quietly to George] You wanna help me out?
Dr. George O'Malley: [Quietly to Bailey] Really?
Nadia's Mother: And sat here, and watched you take patient after patient...
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [Quietly to George] You got your second chance, just don't screw it up.
Nadia's Mother: ...And made my daughter wait for three whole days for her operation. I should sue you and this whole damned hospital!
Dr. George O'Malley: Okay, yeah. You could sue us, or you could consider the possibility of just shutting the hell up.
Nadia's Mother: What did you just say to me? Did you hear what he just...
Ernie: I heard him!
Josh Shelton: You can't talk to an old lady like that.
Nadia's Mother: Where is my daughter? I'd like to see her.
Dr. George O'Malley: Well you can't. I'm her doctor, she is my patient, and this is a hospital, which is the kind of place where people could generally use a little peace and quiet. So, no. Right now, you can't see her. And I am not saying this because you threatened to sue Dr. Bailey, who spent the last several hours saving your daughter's life, saving your wife's life. I am saying this because she is my patient and she is the recovery wing of this hospital trying to recover, and visiting hours are over. So, good night. And, Merry Christmas.
[Walks away]
Dr. George O'Malley: [Bailey, with her arms folded, stares down the family]
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Interns. Too emotional. Apologies.
[Leaves]

Dr. Alex Karev: Why are you helping me after what I did?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Because it's what JESUS would FREAKIN' Do!

Dr. Alex Karev: Uh... Is the nausea constant or intermittent?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Constant.
Dr. Alex Karev: When... When did it first start?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [sighs] After I worked in the fields all day.
Dr. Alex Karev: Do you have any allergies you're aware of?
[Izzie has started to cry, shakes her head]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: No.
[Sobs]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [Alex sits down next to Izzie]
Dr. Alex Karev: Izzie... I never wanted to hurt you.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [Through tears] You didn't hurt me. I don't even know you, I'm a farmer.
Dr. Alex Karev: You're still the patient?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: What does it look like?
[Continues crying, sobbing]
Dr. Alex Karev: It's organophosphates. Pesticide poisoning.
[Izzie nods]
Dr. Alex Karev: Crying's a symptom. That's it, right?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Right.
[Still crying]

[George is helping Alex study]
Dr. George O'Malley: [In a bizzare accent] My throat, it's like, wicked sore, yo. Plus, I got all these sick break outs, right?
Dr. Alex Karev: Dude, seriously.
[George gets up to leave]
Dr. Alex Karev: Alright, alright! Sit down, sit down.
[George comes back]
Dr. Alex Karev: Open up your mouth, I'd like to inspect your tonsils.
[Alex shines a pen light into George's mouth as he sticks his tongue out]
Dr. George O'Malley: [Sticking his tongue out] Aaaa!
[Izzie walks in]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: What's wrong with you? Are you sick?
Dr. George O'Malley: Fake sick.
[Izzie just looks confused]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: I failed my practical board exam. O'Malley's helping me study.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: You failed your...
[Angrily]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: You're helping him?
Dr. George O'Malley: Just to study. Nothing else.
Dr. Alex Karev: Izzie...
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: No, you don't get to say my name! And you are unbelievable!
[Walks out]
Dr. George O'Malley: [as he runs after Izzie] I was doing mono, the whole fever and the glands thing. The acne, was just part of the teenager thing.

Dr. George O'Malley: [Following Izzie up a staircase] Izzie, would you, wait?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: I say I like the guy, and you can't stop hating him.
Dr. George O'Malley: Izzie...
[Still following her through the hospital]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Then as soon as he screws me over, you're his new best friend.
Dr. George O'Malley: Izzie. He failed his boards. This is important.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: He cheated on me!
[George & Izzie run into Meredith]
Dr. Meredith Grey: Busted?
Dr. George O'Malley: Yeah, busted.
Dr. Meredith Grey: His exam is tomorrow.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: You're in on this too? He cheated on me! God!
Dr. Cristina Yang: [Carrying a small Christmas tree out of a patient's room] Told you she'd find out.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Oh, of course you're in on it.
Dr. George O'Malley: She let him touch her boobs!
[Cristina hits George with the tree]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: He cheated on me with George's skanky syph nurse!
Dr. George O'Malley: That is just plain rude!

Dr. Meredith Grey: We know, he cheated on you! That's why we let you turn the living room into Santa's freaking Village.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: What?
Dr. Meredith Grey: We're not big on holidays. You know that. We're trying to be supportive because you're having a hard time. But right now, Alex, he's having a harder time.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Why does everyone care what kind of time Alex is having?
Dr. Meredith Grey: Because he's dirty Uncle Sal.
[They all look at her strangely]
Dr. Cristina Yang: Sorry?
Dr. George O'Malley: You lost me.
Dr. Meredith Grey: [Thinking they'll catch on... ] Dirty Uncle Sal. Who embarrasses everyone at family reunions, and who can't be left alone with the teenage girls, but you invite him to the picnic anyway.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Sorry, what?
Dr. George O'Malley: Still lost.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I have a mother who doesn't recognize me. As far as family goes, this hospital, you guys are it. So, I know you're pissed at Alex, but, maybe you could try to help him anyway. Sort of like the spirit of this holiday you keep shoving down everybody's throats.
[Izzie and Meredith walk off in opposite directions]
Dr. Cristina Yang: [Disdainfully, to George] You...
[Turns away with the tree]
Dr. George O'Malley: What?
Dr. Cristina Yang: "Boob"?


"Grey's Anatomy: No Man's Land (#1.4)" (2005)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [to Alex] You want to call me Dr. Model, that's fine. But just remember that while you're sitting on two-hunded grand of student loans, I'm out of debt.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [to Alex, after he made photocopies of the picture of her posing in the magazine and put them all over the locker room] You wanna see it? You really wanna see it? Fine! Let's look at that tattoo up close and personal, shall we?
[she rips off her shirt and throws it at Alex]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: What are these? Oh, my God! Breasts! How does anybody practice medicine hauling these things around? And what have we got back here? Let's see if I remember my anatomy.
[takes off her pants]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Gluts, right? Let's study them, shall we? Gather around and check out the booty that put Izzie Stevens through Med school! You wanna call me Dr. Model? That's fine. But just remember that while you're still sitting on 200 grand in student loans, I'm out of debt.

Dr. Cristina Yang: You are eight feet tall. Your boobs are perfect. Your hair is down to there. If I was you I would just walk around naked all the time. I wouldn't have a job, I wouldn't have any skills, I wouldn't even know how to read. I would just be... naked.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: It's makeup. It's retouching.
Dr. Cristina Yang: You get that we hate you, right?

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Here, my share of the grocery money. When are you going?
Dr. George O'Malley: Tonight.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Okay. Seriously, George. Please don't...
Dr. George O'Malley: Yeah, could we not talk about it here?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: What? Tampons?
Dr. George O'Malley: Did you not hear a word I said?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You're a man, we know.
Dr. Alex Karev: [everyone in the room starts to laugh] Talk about shrinking the salamander.

Dr. George O'Malley: You don't understand. Me - gonads! You - ovaries!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Oh, that reminds me. We are out of tampons.
Dr. George O'Malley: You're parading through the bathroom in your underwear, when I'm naked in the shower!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Will you add it to your list, please?
Dr. George O'Malley: What?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Tampons!
Dr. Meredith Grey: To the list. It's your turn.
Dr. George O'Malley: I am a man! I don't buy girl products. I don't want you walking in while I'm in the shower. And I don't wanna see you in your underwear!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: It doesn't bother me, okay? Look at me in my underwear, George. Take your time, it's no big deal.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Morning, Dr. Model.
Dr. Alex Karev: Dr. Evil Spawn.
Dr. Alex Karev: [he sees a tattoo on her lower stomach] Ooooh, nice tat. Do they airbrush that out for the catalogs?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I don't know. What do they do for the 666 on your skull?

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [standing in the bathroom, outside the shower, where George is, looking for tampons] Tampons, tampons. I reminded you before you went.
Dr. George O'Malley: I forgot when I got there.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No.
[she opens the shower door]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No, you were so passive-aggressive.
Dr. George O'Malley: Naked! I am naked in the shower!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [closes the shower door] Just tampons, George! I really needed tampons. God!
[Meredith enters the bathroom]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I'm not riding in the same car as him.
Dr. Meredith Grey: [looks at Izzie, who is standing in her underwear] Unless you're going like that, you're not riding with me either. Where are the tampons?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: He didn't buy them.
Dr. Meredith Grey: [to George] You didn't buy them?
Dr. George O'Malley: Men don't buy tampons!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [opens the shower door again, and George falls over] You know what? You're gonna have to get over the whole man thing, George! We're women! We have vaginas! Get used to it!
Dr. George O'Malley: [she walks out of the bathroom, leaving George lying on the floor of the shower] I am not your sister!
[he slams the shower door]

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You said, "I am not your sister." Do you feel like I was emasculating you?
Dr. George O'Malley: No. I'm too masculine to be emasculated.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I'm sorry.
Dr. George O'Malley: Guess you put Dr. Model to rest.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Guess I did.


"Grey's Anatomy: Losing My Religion (#2.27)" (2006)
Dr. George O'Malley: What happened?
Nurse Olivia Harper: I didn't know what to do. I didn't think you guys would want me to go to the chief, but...
Dr. Cristina Yang: Where is she?
Nurse Olivia Harper: She's in there.
[walk in to see Izzie lying in bed with Denny]
Dr. Cristina Yang: Izzie...
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I think it was a stroke. He was prone to blood clots. A clot could have formed on his sutures and traveled to his brain, it only takes a second.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Izz...
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Dr. Hahn did a beautiful job on the surgery. But I don't know why I didn't think of blood clots. He died all alone. He was alone.
Dr. George O'Malley: There's nothing you could have done.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I changed my dress three times. I wanted to look nice. I would have been here sooner. But I couldn't figure out which dress to wear.
Dr. George O'Malley: Izzie, we shouldn't be in here.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Izz, there are things that they need, they need to move him.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Take him to the morgue.
Dr. Cristina Yang: You can't stay here, I know you want to...
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Can you please, please, just get out? I want to be alone with Denny.
Dr. Alex Karev: Izzie, that's not Denny.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Shut up.
Dr. Alex Karev: Izz, it's not Denny. The minute his heart stopped beating he stopped being Denny. Now I know you love him, but he also loved you. And a guy that loves you like that, he doesn't want you to do this to yourself. Because it's not Denny, not anymore.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: An hour ago he was proposing. And now... and now he's going to the morgue. Isn't that ridiculous? Isn't it the most ridiculous piece of crap you've ever...
[starts sobbing. Alex picks her up, cradling her, and sits down on a chair holding and rocking her while she sobs]

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [to Webber, with teary eyes] It was me. I cut his LVAD wire. I did it, no one helped me. And now... I thought I was a surgeon, but, I am not, so I quit.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Izzie...
[George tries to block her from walking off. She walks around him. He and Alex follow her down the stairs]

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [one on one meeting with the Chief] I'm a pretty girl.
Dr. Richard Webber: What?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: 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. It's the blonde thing and the big boobs thing, big boobs are a key to obvious pretty if you know what I'm saying.
Dr. Richard Webber: Dr. Stevens.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: 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 that I'm someone else. And I'm used to it. And I'm used to them walking away when they realize... but then Denny goes and asks me to marry him.
Dr. Richard Webber: Is that why you cut the wires?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: He doesn't make me feel like I'm a pretty girl. He makes me feel like, like me. I think he might know me. And so, if I did cut the LVAD wire, and I'm not saying that I did, but if I did, then no, I don't feel guilty. And I know that I should. And I would if it were anybody else's. But I can't feel anything but happy.
[smiles]

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [to Webber] It was me. I cut his LVAD wire. I did it, no one helped me. And now... I thought I was a surgeon, but, I am not, so I quit.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Izzie...
[Izzie walks away. George tries to block her, but Izzie walks around him]

Denny Duquette: What? You like your men sick and feeble? You don't dig healthy guys?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I dig you.
Denny Duquette: Then why are you all swirly and twitchy?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No I'm not.
Denny Duquette: It's 'cause I asked you to marry me.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: So you remember that?
Denny Duquette: It's not the kind of thing I'd forget.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Yeah. Denny, um, I'm giving you an out.
Denny Duquette: Excuse me?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Well, I'm giving you an out. You thought you were dying and I was saving your life and well, you know, it was so
[gasp]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: . We can't get married. I mean that would be insane. We should date, and have sex. Plenty of sex. You know when your heart gets better and you're out of the hospital, all the sex you can handle. But marriage is, um, marriage...
Denny Duquette: Okay, it's my turn now.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: But I need to...
Denny Duquette: No, no. We're taking turns. I've decided. It's polite and it keeps me from yelling. When it's your turn again, you can talk.
[pause]
Denny Duquette: For five years, I've had to live by the choices of my doctors. The guys that cut me open decided my life, there wasn't one choice that was mine. And now, I have this heart that beats and works. I get to be like everybody else, I get to make my own decisions, have my own life, do whatever the damned hell I choose. Now here's the good part, so you listen close. What I choose is you. You're who I want to wake up with and go to bed with and do everything in between with. I get a choice now. I get to choose. I choose you, Izzie Stevens. Ok, it's your turn again.


"Grey's Anatomy: Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head (#2.1)" (2005)
Dr. Alex Karev: Oh, sure, I'm the guy with the heart of stone, and you brought snacks.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: It's a working lunch.
Dr. Alex Karev: Snacks to watch Joe die.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: He's not gonna die die, they're gonna bring him back.
Dr. Alex Karev: He's gonna die die, no pulse pulse, he is gonna be dead dead.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You had it coming.
Dr. Alex Karev: The dude punches like my sister.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Oh, so, by your definition then, you got beat up by a girl.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Why are you back here tonight? You don't have a date with McDreamy?
Dr. George O'Malley: More like McMarried.

Dr. Meredith Grey: Let's play a game of whose life sucks the most. I'll win. I always win.
Dr. Cristina Yang: You don't wanna play with me.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Oh, I do. I'll even go first. Derek's married.
[George spits his beer out]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: George, beer is dripping from your nostrils.
[He walks off]
Dr. Meredith Grey: Told ya I'd win.
Dr. Cristina Yang: No, you don't win.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Did you hear me? I said Derek is married, as in pig-headed, adulterous, liar, married. Nothing you could say could top that.
Dr. Cristina Yang: I'm pregnant. I win.
[Joe collapses]
Dr. Cristina Yang: Ok, maybe Joe wins.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You have been treating these people for the last week, how can you not know their names?
Dr. Alex Karev: Surgery is the only speciality where we don't waste time getting to know the patients. They're slabs of meat, we're butchers.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: They're human beings. You do know what a human being is don't you Evil Spawn?
Dr. Alex Karev: I'm not evil. Unless evil turns you on.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Did you ever wake up in the morning and realize that nobody likes you, and... well, I don't know, care?
Dr. Alex Karev: Oh, oh, I think somebody likes me.


"Grey's Anatomy: Break on Through (#2.15)" (2006)
Cheyenne Wood: [about the baby she has just given up for adoption] Can I name her?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: You can name her for you.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: She can have more than a trailer park and a graveyard shift at a truck-stop diner. Don't you want that for her? I mean, if you can get past the fact that I'm superior, and that I'm judging you, and telling you what's best for your family... if you can just get past all of that, isn't it possible that I'm also right?

Nurse Olivia Harper: [shouting on the picket line] Change your own bedpans, Stevens!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Yeah, enjoy your syphilis, Olivia.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: George is cowering behind the picket line like a little girl.
Dr. Sydney Heron: Standing up for what he believes in, that's my kind of little girl! Am I right?

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [about her daughter she gave for adoption] I wanted better for her than I could do at sixteen.


"Grey's Anatomy: The Self-Destruct Button (#1.7)" (2005)
Dr. George O'Malley: Yang. I'm scrubbing in on a hemospherectomy with Shepherd.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Get out! I would kill for that.
Dr. George O'Malley: We're cutting out half the girl's brain, and it's going to work. It's outrangous. Almost makes it kinda hard to hate him.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Why do you hate him?
Dr. George O'Malley: Oh, no reason.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Oh, you know about him and Meredith?
Dr. George O'Malley: You know?
Dr. Cristina Yang: When are you gonna figure out that I know everything?
Dr. George O'Malley: [to Izzie who is walking up the stairs] She knows.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Oh, about doctor-cest?
Dr. Cristina Yang: It's been going on for, like, ever.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Seriously?
Dr. George O'Malley: And you didn't tell us?
Dr. Cristina Yang: And you didn't tell us?
Dr. George O'Malley: I am not!
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: I am!
Dr. George O'Malley: He's about to go into major brain surgery on no sleep? That's not very responsible.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Jealous? Sex all night isn't about being reponsible.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: No, it's about sex all night. I can't believe you're not pissed off about this, you of all people.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Well, she works hard all day. She's good at her job, why should you care how she unwinds? I mean you like to bake all night, others like to drink, others like an occasional screaming orgasm.
Dr. Alex Karev: [walking up] Yeah we do

Dr. George O'Malley: Hey, have you seen Shepherd?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Not as up close as Meredith has.
Dr. George O'Malley: Hey, are you trying to get her in trouble? She's our friend.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: George this program will make or break our careers, some of us will make it through and some of us won't. And that decision depends entirely on recommendations from doctors like Shepherd. There is a reason we don't sleep with the attendings.
Dr. George O'Malley: t's not her fault, it's Shepherds. He's an attending he should know better. He's taking advantage of her.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: It didn't exactly sound like anything was happening against her will last night.

Dr. George O'Malley: You get any sleep?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: She should oil the bedsprings, as a courtesy, or at least buy a padded headboard.
Dr. George O'Malley: So, who's the guy?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: You think it was just one guy doing all that work?

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Seriously? Seriously?

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [outside the stuck elevator] Poor George, he doesn't have the steadiest hands.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Izzie, he can hear you.


"Grey's Anatomy: Enough Is Enough (#2.2)" (2005)
Dr. Meredith Grey: [Meredith is laying on her bathroom floor] It's not us. It's them. Them and their stupid boy... penises. They didn't tell me they had a wife. They gave absolutely no warning that they were going to break up with you.
Dr. Cristina Yang: [Cristina, who is sitting in the shower, slides the shower door open] It's not that Burke broke up with me. It's how he broke up with me. Like it was business. Like a business trans... Like he's the boss of me.
Dr. Meredith Grey: He is the boss of you.
Dr. Cristina Yang: And what's worse is that I care.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I'm gonna throw up again.
[Meredith gets up from the floor and crawls to the toilet. Cristina slides the shower door closed. Meredith groans]
Dr. Meredith Grey: No. Wait. False alarm.
Dr. Cristina Yang: [Cristina slides the shower door open again, Meredith sits up, her back against the wall] Look, the problem is estrogen.
Dr. Meredith Grey: No, the problem is tequila.
Dr. Cristina Yang: You know I used to be all business, and then he goes and gets me pregnant.
Dr. Meredith Grey: [with her eyes closed, pointing her finger in the air] With the stupid boy penis.
Dr. Cristina Yang: [with her head on her arm, exasperated] Now I'm having hormone surges.
[Cristina looks up]
Dr. Cristina Yang: He ruined me. I'm ruined. He turned me into this... fat, stupid, pregnant girl... who cares.
[Cristina closes the shower door again]
Dr. Cristina Yang: Estrogen.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Penises.
[door opens, Izzie and George come into the bathroom]
Dr. Meredith Grey: Penises, Izzie!
Dr. Cristina Yang: [opens the shower] Estrogen, George.
[holds up a glass and Izzie pours more Fiji bottled water into it]
Dr. George O'Malley: [looks at Cristina] Okay.
[to Izzie]
Dr. George O'Malley: What did I miss?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Came home to full-on vomit drama. Apparently she dumped Derek. And her.
[in a whisper]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: She's been sleeping with Burke.
Dr. George O'Malley: I knew that.
[to Meredith]
Dr. George O'Malley: So you really broke up with Shepherd?
[starts brushing his teeth]
Dr. Meredith Grey: [softly] I feel empty.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Two hours of vomiting will do that to you.
[begins brushing her teeth]
Dr. Meredith Grey: No, I feel empty.
Dr. Cristina Yang: You're lucky. I feel pissed off.
[Cristina closes the shower]

[Meredith gets out of the car, is walking, in the rain, towards the hospital, sees Derek]
Dr. Meredith Grey: Stop.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: What?
Dr. Meredith Grey: You're stalking me. Stop it.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Did we not communicate last night?
Dr. Meredith Grey: Yes.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Did you hear what I was saying?
Dr. Meredith Grey: Your wife screwed your best friend.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: And then, from that point on, she no longer existed to me anymore.
Dr. Meredith Grey: You had marital amnesia.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: No. Come o... I bared my soul to you last night.
Dr. Meredith Grey: It's not enough.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: How can that not be enough?
Dr. Meredith Grey: When you waited two months, to tell me, and I had to find out by her showing up, all leggy and fabulous, and telling me herself, you pulled the plug. I'm a sink with an open drain. Anything you say, runs right out. There is no enough.
[goes inside, leaving Derek standing outside the hospital entrance]
Dr. George O'Malley: She probably could've picked a better metaphor.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Give her a break, she has a hangover.
[George and Izzie walk past Derek into the hospital]


"Grey's Anatomy: Winning a Battle, Losing the War (#1.3)" (2005)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: George, you did good.
Dr. George O'Malley: 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.

Dr. George O'Malley: You underestimate me. I'm not a baby, I'm your colleague. You don't have to manipulate me. If you want something all you have to do is ask.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: We want you to go over Burke's head to the chief.
Dr. George O'Malley: Ask me something easier.


"Grey's Anatomy: Yesterday (#2.18)" (2006)
Dr. George O'Malley: Why is he suturing his own face?
Dr. Cristina Yang: To turn me on.
Dr. Alex Karev: Because he's Mark Sloan. He's like the go-to plastic surgeon on the East Coast.
Dr. George O'Malley: That's the guy Addison was sleeping with?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You can't really blame her, can you?
Dr. Cristina Yang: No, not really.
Dr. George O'Malley: Yes you can.
Dr. Meredith Grey: McSexy wants an X-ray to check for fractures and I think it's a bad idea if I take him.
Dr. George O'Malley: Why? Why?
Dr. Alex Karev: I'm on it.
Dr. George O'Malley: Why's it a bad idea?
Dr. Cristina Yang: McSexy?
Dr. Meredith Grey: No.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: McYummy?
Dr. Cristina Yang, Dr. Meredith Grey: No.
Dr. Meredith Grey: McSteamy.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Ah, there it is.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Yep.
Dr. George O'Malley: Chocking back some McVomit.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You know when you don't have sex for a while you sort of forget how good it is and you don't really need it as much?
Dr. George O'Malley: Yeah, that doesn't happen to guys.


"Grey's Anatomy: Make Me Lose Control (#2.3)" (2005)
Dr. Miranda Bailey: You have a problem?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: You have a mocha-latte?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Then go away.

Dr. Miranda Bailey: Izzie, the Dr. Shepherds need an intern up in NICU.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Wait, both of them? Together? And me by myself... w-with the two married people, who hate each other?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Go! Cristina, you're on the thoracotomy.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Oh, with Burke? I can't have the hateful married couple instead?


"Grey's Anatomy: Into You Like a Train (#2.6)" (2005)
Dr. Meredith Grey: [Izzy is walking past a bed that is curtained off, but hears Meredith's voice] Ow! Ow! Ow! Ow!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [Opens curtain to find Meredith trying to stick a needle in her arm] What are you doing?
Dr. Meredith Grey: I'm trying to insert my own banana bag... which sounds kinda dirty, but it really isn't.

Dr. George O'Malley: We have to do something. Meredith has become like an exhibit like... hey... like a zoo animal... like that rare panda that everyone stares at.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Please don't say that to her face. I think that panda died alone.


"Grey's Anatomy: Let the Angels Commit (#3.6)" (2006)
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: McDreamy's sister is a McBitch!

Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [to Gretchen] Everyone needs help from time to time. Someone to look out for them, make sure they're okay, make sure they're ready. I have that, and you need that right now.


"Grey's Anatomy: A Change Is Gonna Come (#4.1)" (2007)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I know you didn't wake up today expecting this was how your first day was going to go. You thought you would get to reattach an arm or observe brain surgery. Instead you helped save the life of a deer. You can bitch and complain about it or you can adjust your expectations. Cause like it or not you're stuck with me and I'm the kind of doctor who lets a little kid convince her she can do the impossible. Oh plus when I woke up this morning I thought today was going to go a lot differently too. I thought I was going to get the good interns. Instead I get stuck with the duds. So I have to adjust my expectations as well.

Dr. Cristina Yang: [to her interns] I have five rules. Memorize them. Rule number one, don't bother sucking up. I already hate you, that's not gonna change.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Trauma protocol, phone lists, pagers. The nurses will page you, you answer every page at a run. A run. That's rule number two...
[notices the interns are not following her... ]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You're supposed to follow me.
Dr. Alex Karev: Your first shift starts now and lasts 36 hours. You're grunts, nobodies, the bottom of the surgical food chain. You run labs, write orders, work every second night until you drop. And you don't complain. You NEVER complain.
Dr. Meredith Grey: On call rooms. Sleep when you can, where you can. You know, but not with anybody. Not attendings, especially not attendings. Sleeping with attendings, not a good idea. Where was I?
Dr. George O'Malley: Er, rule number three. If you're sleeping, do not wake you unless the patient is actually dying.
Dr. Cristina Yang: The dying patient better not be dead when I get there, because not only will you have killed someone, you will have woken me for no good reason. Are we clear? Yes?
Dr. Lexie Grey: [... raising her hand... ] That was four rules, you said five.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Rule number five. When I move, you move...
[awkward pause as nobody moves... ]
Dr. Cristina Yang: Go!...
[Cristina's interns scramble off... ]


"Grey's Anatomy: Let the Truth Sting (#4.3)" (2007)
Charlie Yost 'Really Old Guy': I don't like you, Blondie.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [sarcastically] Really? I thought we were BFFs!
Charlie Yost 'Really Old Guy': You know just for that I'm going to die right now
[squeeze]

Dr. Cristina Yang: What's the matter? Couldn't find his LVAD Wire?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: It was Coincidence
Dr. Cristina Yang: Oh well. I'm scrubbing in on Meredith's hemiglossectomy
[Meredith walks in]
Dr. Meredith Grey: She's faking it. She's faking sadness.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Okay I have an old guy trying to kill himself. So I don't have time for you two and your fake drama


"Grey's Anatomy: It's the End of the World (#2.16)" (2006)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Take off your pants
Dr. Alex Karev: You realize when I said the apocalypse I meant it metaphorically, not literally.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I haven't had sex in eight months and twelve days. I'm horny, I'm half-naked, and I'm saying yes. Do you want to stand there and talk metaphors or do you want to literally take off your pants?


"Grey's Anatomy: Walk on Water (#3.15)" (2007)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I ate everything out of the fridge last night including a tub of butter. There's no judgment here.


"Grey's Anatomy: From a Whisper to a Scream (#3.9)" (2006)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Dude, she went all cage fighter on you!
Dr. Meredith Grey: I know!


"Grey's Anatomy: 17 Seconds (#2.25)" (2006)
Denny Duquette: Izzie! Izzie, stop and listen to me. We're not doing this.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Don't worry. You're not gonna die. I will be here the whole time to make sure of that. And that's what this stuff is for.
Denny Duquette: This isn't about me dying. Alright? This is wrong.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: You've waited a year and a half to get this thing. Who knows when the next one is going to come along.
Denny Duquette: I'll take my chances.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: No. It may be too late by then.
Denny Duquette: Then its too late. Alright. Now get this stuff out of here!
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Denny, please. You have to do this.
Denny Duquette: No, Izzie! I'm not about to steal a heart from another man's chest! Not to mention, this'll be the end of your medical career.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: I don't care about my medical career.
Denny Duquette: Alright, you know what? This has gone on long enough. I'm gonna call a nurse.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Everyone who is entered in the transplant program is clocked in to the second. To the second, Denny. You were clocked into the second and so was the other guy, I checked with UNOS. The difference between when you entered the program and when he entered the program is 17 seconds. That's it Denny. 17 seconds. I mean, its not even the length of a decent kiss. So this other guy, I'm not saying that he doesn't deserve this heart. I'm sure he does, but so do you! So do you. And if you tell me anymore crap about heading towards the light or looking down on me from heaven I swear I will kill you myself right now!
Denny Duquette: Izzie... I'm gonna be alright. Alright? You don't have to worry.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: What about me? What about me when you go to the light?
Denny Duquette: Izzie...
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [She's beginning to cry] No, I get it! Ok? I get it! You'll be ok, you'll be fine, but what about me? So don't do it for yourself, do it for me! Please! Please Denny! Please do this for me! Because if you die, oh God, you have to do this! You have to do this for me or I'll never be able to forgive you!
Denny Duquette: For dying?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: No! For making me love you! Please! Please do this for me, ok? Please? Ok, I can't do this if you don't! Please do this for me, cause if you don't, please?
Denny Duquette: Ok. Ok, I'll do it.


"Grey's Anatomy: Testing 1-2-3 (#3.24)" (2007)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You already have it, you have that thing everybody else wants. You can take it for granted but let me tell you if you didn't, if you couldn't be with the person that you love I guarantee that hearing him promise to love you and honor you and cherish you no matter what, it would be pretty much all you could think about.


"Grey's Anatomy: Something to Talk About (#2.7)" (2005)
Dr. Alex Karev: Hey Izzie! Izzie! Hey dollface! Oh I was gonna ask you a favor since, you know, maybe you're better with people than I am.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No.
Dr. Alex Karev: But you haven't even heard what.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: No! No. You're like a broken record. God. You're only ever nice or friendly or anything when it's convenient for you. So no to your favor. No to you. No.
Dr. Alex Karev: What's up with you?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I put on a dress! I did my hair! I had one night off in 2 weeks and I used it on you. And what do I get? Nothing. No respect. No apology. You couldn't even be bothered to kiss me goodnight. You know what you're a coward and you're just as shallow as you seem. So I am done trying to be your friend or whatever. I'm over it.


"Grey's Anatomy: Piece of My Heart (#4.13)" (2008)
Dr. Addison Montgomery: Be the change you want to see in life.

"Grey's Anatomy: Much Too Much (#2.10)" (2005)
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: I just need some sex, George.
[she grabs his arm]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: You know what I mean.
Dr. George O'Malley: [shakes head no] No matter how hard you beg me, I am not sleeping with you.
Dr. George O'Malley: [shakes head up and down and mouths] Yes, I will.


"Grey's Anatomy: Stand by Me (#5.18)" (2009)
Dr. Izzie Stevens: [to Cristina] I don't even know if I want treatment, Cristina. I know too much. I know how violent surgery can be. They're gonna cut into my brain. They're gonna slice open my abdomen and pull my organs out, and for what? Surgery fails all the time. Derek Shepherd is in the fricking woods right now because we fail all the time! And even if they do everything right, I have a five percent chance of survival. Five percent! Why would I put myself through hell, run poison through my veins and radiate my brain if it's not gonna work anyway?
Dr. Cristina Yang: Why did you tell me, then? If you don't want my help and you're not gonna do anything about it, why did you tell me?
Dr. Izzie Stevens: Just keep your mouth shut. Forget I ever told you anything.
[walks out]


"Grey's Anatomy: Let It Be (#2.8)" (2005)
Dr. Alex Karev: What are you pissed about?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You look at everything in a skirt.
Dr. Alex Karev: I'd look at you in a skirt, something short, maybe school girl. Pleated.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: If that skirt didn't have a big pair of bouncing boobs attached to it, you'd stop looking.
Dr. Alex Karev: You cut 'em off, you build 'em back up. Maybe you get to upgrade. Life goes on.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: If there was a genetic test for testicular cancer, you think men who tested positive would have this surgery? No, because it's castration. What man would willingly get rid of the part of his anatomy that makes him a man? This woman is having herself castrated. And we book an OR and act like it means nothing. It's not nothing! God, how could you possibly act like it's no big deal? I mean, what if it was me?
Dr. Alex Karev: Izzie, you're freaking out. You know that, right?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: If I was the one with the cancer gene... I mean, what if I showed up tomorrow and my boobs were made of plastic and my skin had aged 10 years and my sex drive had dried up? If it was me, Alex, would you be so fine with it then?
[Alex is silent]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Yeah, you'd be really hot to kiss me with tongue then, wouldn't you?
[she leaves]
Dr. Alex Karev: [later] Here's the thing - I like your rack.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: God, what is wrong with you? Why do you have to be so... what is wrong with you?
Dr. Alex Karev: I like your rack and I'd want them around if I could have them, trust me I would, but it wouldn't be the end of the world if you got rid of them... because really, I'd want you.
[Izzie slaps him]
Dr. Alex Karev: Ow! What was that for?
[she kisses him]


"Grey's Anatomy: Desire (#3.21)" (2007)
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: [Izzie is taking notes] George, can you maybe stop talking so I can concentrate?
Dr. George O'Malley: What's your problem?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: My problem is you. You're my penis fish.
Dr. George O'Malley: Your what?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: You've crawled in, and latched on. And now I can't move, or talk, or think, or even pee without the nagging feeling that something is eating through my organs.
Dr. George O'Malley: You don't even have a penis! How am I the fish?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: It's a metaphor, George.
Dr. George O'Malley: What happened to us being fine?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: I don't know. Maybe we're not.


"Grey's Anatomy: Where the Boys Are (#3.7)" (2006)
Dr. Izzie Stevens: [talking about Denny to Sydney] I miss him. All the time I miss him. It's not waves, it's constant. All the time. And I walk through the doors of this hospital and I want to be here, I do, but I don't know if I can be a surgeon again and I can't talk about it because it scares me too much.


"Grey's Anatomy: Time Has Come Today (#3.1)" (2006)
Dr. Meredith Grey: I don't know what to say to you.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: When Dylan died, when the bomb went off, did you feel, like...
Dr. Meredith Grey: What?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Like you were moving in slow motion?
Dr. Meredith Grey: He was there and then he wasn't. Like I blinked and he was gone.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: I feel like I'm moving in slow motion. Like I'm moving in slow motion and everything around me is moving so fast and I just wanna go back to when things were normal. When I wasn't "Poor Izzie" laying on the bathroom floor in her prom dress with her- her dead fiance. But I am. So I can't. And I'm- I'm just stuck. And there is all this pressure cause everyone is hovering around me waiting for me to do something. Or say something, or flip out, or yell and cry some more and I'm happy to play my part. I'm happy to say the lines and do whatever it is that I'm supposed to be doing if it will make everyone feel more comfortable. But I don't- I don't know how to do this. I don't know how to be this person. I don't- I don't know who this person is.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Izzie...
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: How did this happen? How did we end up here? Why am I alone? Where's Denny?
Dr. Meredith Grey: You're not alone Izz.


"Grey's Anatomy: Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response (#2.26)" (2006)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I cut the L-VAD wire.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Actually, I cut the L-VAD wire.
Dr. George O'Malley: No, I did it. I'm the one who cut the wire.
[pause, Christina remains silent and George gives her a nudge]
Christina Yang: Fine. I cut the L-vad wire.
Dr. Alex Karev: I didn't do anything I'm totally innocent.
[everyone starts yelling at Alex, except Dr. Webber]
Dr. Richard Webber: People! I know who did this so you might as well come clean. I know!


"Grey's Anatomy: Save Me (#1.8)" (2005)
Mr. Duff: You're into me. I can tell. "Dr. Small and Angry" was a hot appetizer, but you, Doc, are a smorgasbord of lust.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Mr. Duff, you're pressing your luck.
Mr. Duff: Would you press it for me?


"Grey's Anatomy: Band-Aid Covers the Bullet Hole (#2.20)" (2006)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Have you talked to Meredith yet?
Dr. George O'Malley: Tomorrow I'm gonna buy a t-shirt that says, "Stop asking me about Meredith," and I'm gonna wear it everyday until people stop asking me about Meredith.
Dr. Cristina Yang: [sees Meredith coming] Shhh! At least they won't be asking you about your hair.


"Grey's Anatomy: Haunt You Every Day (#4.5)" (2007)

Dr. Meredith Grey: My mother.
Dr. Alex Karev: Happy freaking Halloween.


"Grey's Anatomy: What Have I Done to Deserve This? (#2.19)" (2006)
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Morning. What? So I slept with him again. So I'm a big whore. A big horny whore who can't get enough. Can we get over the shocked silence already?
