[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: 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.

[Alex is mock-examining Cristina, and is basically fondling her chest]
Dr. Cristina Yang: Okay, the way you're grabbing me now, that's assault.
[Straightens out his fingers]
Dr. Cristina Yang: This... is an exam. Pads.
[Moves his hand on her chest properly]
Dr. George O'Malley: [George walks in] What... What the hell? Does Izzie know... Does Burke know about this?
Dr. Cristina Yang: Unbunch your panties, George. We're helping Alex study.
[to Alex]
Dr. Cristina Yang: Do it.
[Alex continues examining her chest]
Dr. George O'Malley: I can't hear you when his hand is on your boob.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Take your hand off my boob, Alex.
[Alex moves his hand off her chest]
Dr. George O'Malley: Thank you. Study for what?
Dr. Alex Karev: Shut it, Yang.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Alex failed his boards.
Dr. George O'Malley: Seriously?
Dr. Alex Karev: I failed one part of one board. That's it.
Dr. George O'Malley: Still, that's pretty embarrassing.
[Stifles a laugh]
Dr. Cristina Yang: [Cristina's pager beeps] Hey, he's all yours, Georgie. Do your worst.

[Massages a spot on her stomach, Meredith and George just look at her]
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [pauses] Thank you.
[Goes back to the operating table, and resumes the surgery]

[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]

[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"?

Dr. Richard Webber: I want you to listen to me very carefully. As long as I am here, I don't know what's happening out there, with my doctors, my patients, my hospital. You are my eyes today, my ears. I want you to be a sponge.
Dr. George O'Malley: A sponge?
Dr. Richard Webber: You report anything and everything happening in this hospital to me.
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm an investigative sponge.
Dr. Richard Webber: I'm not fooling around, O'Malley. There's too much happenin' lately under my radar. It stops today.

Dr. Richard Webber: I want you to be a sponge.
Dr. George O'Malley: A sponge?
Dr. Richard Webber: You report any and everything happening in this hospital to me.
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm an investigative sponge.

Dr. Richard Webber: O'Malley, yell at me again and I'll snap you like a small twig.
Dr. George O'Malley: Yes, sir.

Dr. George O'Malley: [talking to himself] Oh, hi, Chief. No, not much going on, well, other than your interim chief making out with my friend in the stairwell, but hey... sponge duty sucks.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Talking to yourself now?
Dr. George O'Malley: Yes. No. Damn it. I'm a bad sponge. A leaky sponge. I'm gonna leak all the wrong secrets. I'm a bad liar. I can't even lie about talking to myself. You look nice today.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Wore my new lip gloss 'cause my ex-boyfriend's wife looks like Isabella freakin' Rossellini, and I'm like... me. I'm trying to outdo her when she's the victim here, how crazy is that?
Dr. George O'Malley: Not crazy. Smart, you know? Gloss, you know, prevents chapped lips. Y - you - w-was that ex-boyfriend?
Dr. Meredith Grey: I'm an evil mistress.
Dr. George O'Malley: Well still... you look nice.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Thanks. What are you doing here?
Dr. George O'Malley: Well... uh -
Dr. Meredith Grey: Come on, O'Malley, out with it.
Dr. George O'Malley: Okay, can you think of any reason, any reason at all, really, why Cristina would be kissing Burke?

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: You're sleeping with someone?
Dr. George O'Malley: What? Who?
Dr. Cristina Yang: Why is that such a shock? Even George managed to get some action.
Dr. George O'Malley: Correction, George got some syphilis.

Dr. George O'Malley: You know Joe?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Oh, yeah. I was the only female intern my year. I didn't know anybody and nobody knew me except Joe. He knew me.
Dr. George O'Malley: Oh, so you and Joe?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: All you people ever think about is how to get into somebody's pants. You nasty.
[She slaps him, and Izzie laughs]
Dr. Miranda Bailey: That's why you got syphilis.


"Grey's Anatomy: No Man's Land (#1.4)" (2005)
Dr. Alex Karev: So, Grey and Stevens really walk around in their underwear?
Dr. George O'Malley: Um... Not all the time. I mean, some of the time. But not all the time.
Dr. Alex Karev: Sexy underwear?
Dr. George O'Malley: Yeah...
Dr. Alex Karev: And they just let you look at them?
Dr. George O'Malley: Well, uh... yeah.
Dr. Alex Karev: Like sisters?
Dr. George O'Malley: No! Not like sisters. Uh... no! I don't think of them like sisters.
Dr. Alex Karev: But they're not coming on to you?
Dr. George O'Malley: Not exactly.
Dr. Alex Karev: They don't expect you to do anything.
Dr. George O'Malley: No, but...
Dr. Alex Karev: Like sisters. Just like sisters

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: [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. George O'Malley: There need to be some rules.
Dr. Meredith Grey: So, what, we can walk around in our underwear on alternate Tuesdays? Or you could see bras, but not panties? Or are you talking Amish rules? Because if you think you're gonna get Izzie to cover herself...
Dr. George O'Malley: The amount of flesh exposed is not the point. You have to do something, it's your house.
Dr. Meredith Grey: It's my mother's house.
Dr. George O'Malley: Meredith!
Dr. Meredith Grey: Do you like Izzie? Is that was this is about? You have a crush on Izzie?
Dr. George O'Malley: Izzie? No! I don't like Izzie. Izzie? No! She's not the one I'm attracted to.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Not the one. So there's a one?
Dr. George O'Malley: Look, there just have to be some rules.

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: As We Know It (#2.17)" (2006)
Dr. Miranda Bailey: O'Malley!
Dr. George O'Malley: Yeah?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Stop looking at my va-jay-jay!
Dr. George O'Malley: Yes ma'am.

Dr. George O'Malley: [George is behind Baily as she's giving birth, and is apparently looking at a mirror] Dr. Bailey! I can see his head! Wow, he's got a lot of hair. Oh! He's so cute!
Dr. Miranda Bailey: *O'Malley stop looking at my va-jay-jay!*
Dr. George O'Malley: [quickly averting eyes, meekly] Yes, ma'am.

Dr. George O'Malley: Dr. Bailey, I can see the top of his head! He's got a lotta hair! Oh, he's cute!
Dr. Miranda Bailey: O'Malley?
Dr. George O'Malley: Yeah?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Stop lookin' at my va-jay-jay!
Dr. George O'Malley: Yes, ma'am

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: A what?
[she is paged due to the code black herself]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Code Black? Code Red, Code Blue, Code White. I never had a code Black. Dr Shepherd?
Dr. Addison Shepherd: Just go back to you locker room and wait for your resident to give you instructions
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: We don't have a Resident
Dr. George O'Malley: What's going on?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Is it something bad?
Dr. Addison Shepherd: [Addison does't answer until the elevator stops and they can see the chaos at the 3rd floor] Yeah it's something bad.

Dr. George O'Malley: Dr. Bailey, I'm surprised at you. I really thought - this is not how I thought you would do this. I truly... I expected more. You're Dr. Bailey. You don't hide from a fight, you don't give up, you strive for greatness. You, Dr. Bailey... you are a doer. I know your husband's not here, and I know- there are a lot of things going on here that we have no control over. But this... this, we can do.


"Grey's Anatomy: Shake Your Groove Thing (#1.5)" (2005)
Dr. Meredith Grey: I think, maybe I did something... to the heart, when I was holding it. I nodded off a little. Squeezed it.
Dr. George O'Malley: The heart's a tough muscle; it can take a squeeze or two.

Dr. George O'Malley: [to Hank] You and Izzie will give birth to very tall, blond people - kind of like Barbies.

Dr. George O'Malley: [to Izzie's boyfriend Hank] You and Izzie will give birth to very tall, blonde people. Kinda like Barbies.

Dr. Cristina Yang: The bigger the party, the less time for bad sex with the hockey player.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Would you stop saying that?
Dr. Cristina Yang: Ok
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Hank and I have great sex.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Mm hmmm
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: All the time.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Mmm
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: In fact, we'll probably have sex after the party, or during the party.
Dr. George O'Malley: As long as you clear it with Meredith.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: George, I need more ice and chips.
Dr. George O'Malley: Who else did you invite?
Dr. Cristina Yang: Izzie, we said the list was jocks only. Surgery, Trauma, Plastics. Who else?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Just some people from Peds
Dr. Cristina Yang: You invited the preschoolers to Meredith's house. The next thing you'll say is you invited the shrinks.
[Izzie looks away]
Dr. Cristina Yang: She invited mental defects. This party's D.O.A.


"Grey's Anatomy: Stand by Me (#5.18)" (2009)
Kendall Sully: [about the interns] I'm sorry. I'm trying to listen, but are they supposed to look like that?
Dr. Meredith Grey: Like what?
Kendall Sully: The bleeding and the shiner and that one looks like she's suicidal. They're supposed to be doctors?
Dr. George O'Malley: We're going to reserve judgement on that right now.

Dr. George O'Malley: [to Meredith] Mer, there is something wrong with Izzie.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Ah, what do you mean?
Dr. George O'Malley: I don't know. All I know that there is something wrong.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Well, you know, George, we're already drowning in intern drama. We don't need resident drama, too. If it's a problem, she'll tell us. Until, just ignore it.
[Steve limps by them]
Dr. Meredith Grey: I repeat, ignore it.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [walks over to George and Meredith] What in God's name is going on?
Dr. Meredith Grey: It's a personal issue and we are just trying to give them their privacy.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Do you think for a second I wanted to get involved with your little intern dramas?
Dr. George O'Malley: [scoffs] We were not this bad.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Oh, getting married in Vegas, shacking up with attendings, cutting LVAD wires. You don't have to like it, but you have to manage it.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Oh, we've got it under control.
Intern Steve: [Megan runs down the stairs crying] Wait, I love you, Megan!
[Bailey glares at Meredith and George]

Dr. Meredith Grey: [to Steve and Megan] Whatever it is the two of you have going on, it stops now.
Intern Steve: I didn't...
Dr. George O'Malley: I don't think you should talk when she's talking.
Dr. Meredith Grey: You are scaring the patients and you're making this hospital look ridiculous, and you're making us look incompetent.
Intern Steve: No, but we have...
Dr. George O'Malley: That's not a good idea.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Just stay away from each other. So much as a tear or a glance at each other's direction and it's over.
Intern Megan: I don't understand...
Dr. Meredith Grey: No, no, no. Don't talk while I'm talking. Now just get out. Go.
[Steve and Megan leave]
Dr. Meredith Grey: Not together.
[to George]
Dr. Meredith Grey: Oh, that felt good.

Dr. George O'Malley: [to Ryan] Hey, buddy. You need to start talking and you need to start talking now.
Dr. Ryan Spalding: I really can't. Talk to Steve.
Dr. George O'Malley: Right, guy. You need to start talking, dude, because any second they're gonna start that face transplant surgery and then her good friend...
Dr. Meredith Grey: My best friend.
Dr. George O'Malley: Is gonna have her very first solo surgery, and so we have very little patience right now.
Dr. Ryan Spalding: Look, it's not my place.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Okay, you are gonna tell me everything that's going on or else, every time I have a rectal exam or an infected abscess is gonna have your name on it. Every time!
Dr. Ryan Spalding: Megan was with Pierce, but they broke up for a little bit and while they were broken up, she slept with Steve. Then she got back together with Pierce, but Steve sent her an email about how they slept together and instead of just emailing her, he hit reply all. It went to a whole bunch of people, one of them was Pierce and, now Steve says he loves her, Pierce wants to kill him, Megan's like really freaking out right... because... oh... ok wait, so... A while back, someone sent this text message right, and like I didn't get it. I didn't get to see it. It just came, to certain people's phone, you know.

Dr. George O'Malley: [to Pierce, Megan and Steve] This is year one of your residency. You turn on each other now, you're not gonna make it.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Okay, here's what's gonna happen. All of you are going to go and find the sense that the Good Lord gave you and never behave like this within the four walls of this hospital ever again. You are doctors. Pierce, get an ice pack and put it on that oozing, disgusting, mess of an eye. And Steve, go to the pit and get that unsanitary, bloody hand x-rayed and stitched. And Megan, you should go to OB because yes, you are pregnant.
Dr. George O'Malley: [as he and Meredith are walking out] That was very Bailey.


"Grey's Anatomy: A Hard Day's Night (#1.1)" (2005)
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm George. Uh, O'Malley, uh... We met at the mixer, and you were the girl with the black dress with a slit up the side and the strappy sandals.
[Meredith and Cristina exchange a look]
Dr. George O'Malley: Right. Now you think I'm gay.

Dr. George O'Malley: Maybe I should have gone into geriatrics. No one minds when you kill an old person.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Surgery's hot. It's the marines. It's macho. It's hostile. It's hardcore. Geriatrics is for freaks who live with their mothers and never have sex.
Dr. George O'Malley: I've got to get my own place.

Dr. George O'Malley: 007. They're calling me 007, aren't they?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens, Dr. Meredith Grey: No one's calling you 007.
Dr. George O'Malley: I was on the elevator, and Murphy whispered '007'.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Okay, how many times are we going to go through this, George? Five, ten? Give me a number or else I'm gonna hit you.
Dr. George O'Malley: Murphy whispered '007', and everyone laughed.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: He wasn't talking about you.
Dr. George O'Malley: Are you sure?
Dr. Meredith Grey: Would we lie to you?
Dr. George O'Malley: Yes!

Dr. George O'Malley: This shift is a marathon, not a sprint. Eat.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: I can't.
Dr. George O'Malley: You should eat something.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: You try eating after performing 17 rectal exams. The Nazi hates me.
Dr. George O'Malley: The Nazi's a resident. I have attendings hating me.

Dr. Cristina Yang: That's the Nazi?
Dr. George O'Malley: I thought the Nazi would be a man.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I thought the Nazi would be... the Nazi.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Maybe it's professional jealousy. Maybe she's brilliant and they call her a Nazi because they're jealous. Maybe she's nice.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Let me guess - you're the model.


"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. Alex Karev: What are you doing?
Dr. George O'Malley: Hiding. There's this VIP patient - he likes me.
Dr. Alex Karev: That's good, right?
Dr. George O'Malley: He *likes me* likes me.
Dr. Alex Karev: Go for it, man. Get yours. I'm down with the rainbow.
Dr. Alex Karev: [George gives him a strange look] Oh, are you not gay?
Dr. George O'Malley: No.
Dr. Alex Karev: Really? Dude, sorry.
[he walks away as Cristina walks up]
Dr. George O'Malley: Uh, Cristina? Do you... do you think... does Meredith think I'm gay?
Dr. Cristina Yang: Are you?
Dr. George O'Malley: No.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Really?

Dr. George O'Malley: I ordered Chinese food...
Dr. Meredith Grey: I HATE Chinese food!

Dr. George O'Malley: You're at the top of the donor list for a new liver. There's hope.
Lloyd Mackie: Sweetheart, I've been at the top of the list for... eight months. I'm not in a batter's cage. I'm in a dugout, about to be traded.
Dr. George O'Malley: You like baseball?
Lloyd Mackie: No!

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: [after hearing Meredith talk about McDreamy] I think I'm going to McVomit.

Dr. Meredith Grey: [about Addison Shepherd] I don't see what McDreamy or McSteamy see in her.
Dr. Alex Karev: She's McHot.
Dr. George O'Malley: Oh yeah!

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. George O'Malley: I know I'm not a world-renowned surgeon and I know I'm not a lot of things you've gone for in the past. I know. But, I would never leave you. I would never hurt you. And I will never stop loving you.

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: Owner of a Lonely Heart (#2.11)" (2005)
Dr. George O'Malley: [the interns are each monitoring a newborn quintuplet] I have the best quint. Lucy. She just smiled at me.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: She's nine hours old, George.
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm saying, there are five babies here, and clearly *mine* is the advanced one.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Charlotte's smart. She's got wrinkles on her forehead. Very serious.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: OK. A: this is not a competition. And B: my quint kicks your quints asses. Emily's strong, she won't let go of my finger.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Hey, Julie has her organs on the *outside* of her body and she's still alive, thank you!
Dr. Alex Karev: Kate's the best one.

Dr. George O'Malley: You paged me?
Nurse Olivia Harper: Another leech fell off and I can't get the new one to bite. I'm sorry, they just really freak me out.
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm a surgeon, Olivia.
Nurse Olivia Harper: You're an intern, George.

Nurse Olivia Harper: I'm not that good at handling leaches.
Dr. George O'Malley: [straight-faced] That's not what I heard

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [about Alex] I'm telling you, Meredith was all over him.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Seriously, she was all over him? What, like mounting him, with all the babies watching? Seriously?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Well, she would have been if I hadn't interrupted.
Dr. George O'Malley: She was talking to him.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You don't talk to bastards who cheat on their girlfriends, George. That's the rule.
Dr. George O'Malley: You weren't officially his girlfriend.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: That's not the point.
Dr. George O'Malley: It is kind of the point. You don't see me getting all emotional over people I'm not dating.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Really? You want to go there?
Dr. George O'Malley: No.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I'm having a moment here. Don't mess with me.
Dr. George O'Malley: You're not gonna have a nervous breakdown and kill yourself are you?
Dr. George O'Malley: No.
Dr. Cristina Yang: So there's no chance you'll kill us?
[Izzie storms off]
Dr. George O'Malley: Oh, that was wrong on so many levels.
Dr. Cristina Yang: And so good.
Dr. George O'Malley: That was. That was good.
[Cristina laughs]


"Grey's Anatomy: Who's Zoomin' Who? (#1.9)" (2005)
Dr. Cristina Yang: Hey Syph-boy!
Dr. George O'Malley: You told her?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Just Cristina.
Dr. Alex Karev: Syph-boy - it's got a nice ring to it. Kinda like Super-boy, only
[pauses]
Dr. Alex Karev: diseased.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [after he comes out of the bathroom] There's no reason to be ashamed. It's normal, healthy even.
Dr. George O'Malley: I am not ashamed. 'Cause I wasn't doing anything. I don't have to. I have a girlfriend.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: An imaginary girlfriend?
Dr. George O'Malley: An actual girlfriend.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You know what? It's no big deal, you don't have to lie. I get it. You have needs.
[Meredith opens the door Izzie was leaning against]
Dr. Meredith Grey: What is going on out here?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens, Dr. George O'Malley: Nothing.
[George walks away]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: He's freaked out because I caught him playing with little Jimmy and the twins.
Dr. George O'Malley: I have a girlfriend.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Ok.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: [appearing from Meredith's bedroom] It sounds like fun out here.

Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [George is in the bathroom, locked in and Izzie wants to take a shower. Izzie knocks on the door] George. You locked the door I need to take a shower.
Dr. George O'Malley: Uh... uh, I'll be out in a minute.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: What are you doing in there?
Dr. George O'Malley: It's private!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Oh! Oh, god, I'm sorry. I get it. I didn't mean to interrupt.
Dr. George O'Malley: No, it's not that.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: It's ok. Take your time.
Dr. George O'Malley: I am not doing what you think I'm doing.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You know what, there's really no need to explain. I'll wait, you just... finish.
Dr. George O'Malley: No... I'm-I'm coming. I'm coming out!
[Izzie laughs]

Dr. George O'Malley: God, he's got an ovary?
Dr. Alex Karev: Gives a whole new meaning to metrosexual.


"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]

Dr. Miranda Bailey: If they're dead or dying when they come through those doors, you hump and hump hard, why?
Dr. George O'Malley: For the experience.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Ah, no, what else, there's something more.
[He doesn't answer]
Dr. Miranda Bailey: And you think on that, you'll get it, it'll come to you.
[Later]
Dr. George O'Malley: Why do we hump on every dead or dying patient that comes through those doors?
Nurse Olivia Harper: Experience?
Dr. George O'Malley: So we can tell their family that we did everything we could.

Dr. Richard Webber: Call three times a day.
Adele Webber: Do not call three times a day.
Dr. Richard Webber: And if my wife doesn't put you through ...
Adele Webber: I won't put you through.
Dr. Richard Webber: Keep calling until she does
Dr. George O'Malley: Yes, sir.


"Grey's Anatomy: The Self-Destruct Button (#1.7)" (2005)
Dr. George O'Malley: How's a pompous cocky jackass like you always have women all over him?
Dr. Alex Karev: Little bluebell pills. Lots of them.
Dr. George O'Malley: Oh c'mon.
Dr. Alex Karev: Float like a butterfly sting like a bee. O'Malley, you think too much, can't you see it? You gotta dance and jab, dance and jab! Like me. I am the Ali of this place.

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. George O'Malley: Do you mind if I don't think about that?
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Oh, you jealous?
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm not jealous.
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Well, I am. Least I know she'll be having a long day at work.
[They see Derek leave]
Dr. Isobel 'Izzie' Stevens: Well, at least we know brain surgery isn't his only skill.


"Grey's Anatomy: What Have I Done to Deserve This? (#2.19)" (2006)
Dr. George O'Malley: Why? I just wanna know... why you - if you didn't want to.
Dr. Meredith Grey: I didn't know I didn't want to. You were there and you were saying all these perfect things and I was sad. And so I thought "Maybe... maybe I've just been overlooking what's been in front of me... and if I just give it a chance, because you're George and you're so great." I didn't know I didn't want to until I knew I didn't want to.
Dr. George O'Malley: Yeah. Okay.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Can we please just go back to everything the way it was?
Dr. George O'Malley: I don't know how to go back. No. I'm done. We're done.

Dr. Cristina Yang: Stop pouting.
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm not pouting.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Oh please, I don't even have to look at you, I can feel you pouting. Whatever Meredith did, it wasn't on purpose, so get over it already.
Dr. Preston Burke: Ahem...
Dr. Cristina Yang: I'm not being inappropriate, he's acting like she skinned his puppy.
Dr. Preston Burke: Yang, that's not nice.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Well, I'm not a nice person.

Dr. George O'Malley: [Narrating] Okay so sometimes, even the best of us make rash decisions - bad decisions. Decisions we pretty much know we're gonna regret the moment, the minute - especially the morning after. I mean, maybe not "regret" regret because at least, you know, we put ourselves out there but still, something inside us decides to do a crazy thing. A thing we know'll probably turn around and bite us in the ass yet we do it anyway. What I'm saying is; we reap what we sow. What comes around goes around. It's karma and, any way you slice it, karma sucks.

Dr. George O'Malley: [Narrating] One way or another our karma will lead us to face ourselves. We can look our karma in the eye or we can wait for it to sneak up on us from behind. One way or another our karma will always find us. And the truth is, as surgeons we have more chances than most to set the balance in our favor. No matter how hard we try, we can't escape our karma. It follows us home. I guess we can't really complain about karma. It's not unfair. It's not unexpected. It just evens the score. And even when we're about to do something we know will probably tempt karma to bite us in the ass well, it goes without saying, we do it anyway.


"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. George O'Malley: [to Bailey out in the hall] Not to bother you, but...
Dr. Miranda Bailey: What? Alright, one of you better spit out the problem right now.
Dr. Alex Karev: The problem is the colors and - and the balloons and the Under the Sea. No, it's Titanic. Hey, let's go with Tears In Heaven. No, that's too morbid. It should be pink, it should be red, it should be a freakin' rainbow.
Dr. George O'Malley: What he's saying is that we're very very hopeful that you speak teenage girl.

Dr. George O'Malley: [one on one meeting with the Chief] Aren't you gonna say anything or...
[pauses as Webber stares at him]
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm not gonna break.
[pause]
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm starting to get a little freaked out, but I'm not gonna break. It's not because I don't care, because I do care what you think about me, I do. Care. I just can't tell you want you want to hear. Which seems to be a theme in my life right now. Just because you can't say something doesn't mean you don't want to, you can want to very much. You can be with a person and be happy with them and not love them. And you can love somebody and not want to be with them. You don't need to love someone to want them. Now that's frustrating, when what your brain tells you you want and what you actually want don't match up. It's exhausting. And, well, it's complicated. But that's life. And life... sucks.


"Grey's Anatomy: Thanks for the Memories (#2.9)" (2005)
Dr. George O'Malley: [to Izzy about being late for Thanksgiving dinner] Today I committed bird murder, and I was forced to touch *my* dad's ass. I get extra points for showing up at all.

Dr. Cristina Yang: Where does Meredith keep the booze?
Dr. George O'Malley: I don't think she has any.
Dr. Cristina Yang: How is that possible? She's a WASP. Liquor is like oxygen to a WASP.

Dr. George O'Malley: I'm in hell.
Dr. Cristina Yang: I'm the one in hell. Burke's going all Iron Chef in your kitchen. Get your ass back here and save me.
Dr. George O'Malley: I'm in the woods with shotguns and liquor. It's like Deliverance out here.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Well, at least you've got liquor.


"Grey's Anatomy: The First Cut Is the Deepest (#1.2)" (2005)
Dr. George O'Malley: Who here feels like they have no idea what they're doing?
[in order, George, Izzie, Christina, and Meredith raise their hands]
Dr. George O'Malley: I mean, are we supposed to learning something? Because I don't feel like I'm learning anything.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Except how not to sleep.
Dr. Cristina Yang: You know, it's like there's a wall. The attendings and the residents are over there being surgeons, and we're over here being...
Dr. Meredith Grey: Suturing, code-running, lab-delivering, penis-minders.
Dr. Alex Karev: I hate being an intern.

Dr. George O'Malley: Then why didn't you tell me that when I was going on and on about how great it was gonna be?
Dr. Cristina Yang: Because you're George... and I'm Cristina.

Dr. Meredith Grey: [at newborn nursery watching babies; reluctantly] Okay, fine. George and Izzie, you can move into the house...
Dr. George O'Malley: Oh, yes! Yes!
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I can't believe she caved!
Dr. George O'Malley: [touches Meredith's shoulder] Thank you!
Dr. Meredith Grey: [turns to Cristina] I can't believe I caved...
Dr. Cristina Yang: I blame the babies. They make you toxic.


"Grey's Anatomy: I Am a Tree (#3.2)" (2006)
Dr. George O'Malley: I don't want any other guys touching your panties!

Dr. George O'Malley: [about Callie and Derek] They are freaking corpses to us!


"Grey's Anatomy: It's the End of the World (#2.16)" (2006)
Dr. Cristina Yang: Which surgeon are we going to have to suck up to today?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: That would be me.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Dr. Bailey?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: I've been gone two weeks. Two weeks! And you ran off two residents. I've got people phoning me at home, screaming, telling me my interns are Rosemary's babies! Nobody wants you! Do you think I have time for this? I am pregnant! I'm supposed to be on bedrest! I'm supposed to be growing a human being. I am supposed to be calm! Do I look calm to you! Did I raise you fools to be pariahs!
Dr. George O'Malley: [Hugging Dr. Bailey] You're back!
Dr. Miranda Bailey: I am not back.
Dr. George O'Malley: You're not?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [Smacks him] Get off me!
[an ambulance roles up]
Dr. Miranda Bailey: Yang, Karev, Grey, stay in here and wait for the incoming case. O'Malley, page Addison Shepherd. Stevens, get a wheelchair.
Dr. George O'Malley: A wheelchair?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: A wheelchair.
Dr. George O'Malley: What should I tell Dr. Montgomery-Shepherd?
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [No one has moved] What did I say?
Dr. George O'Malley: Dr. Bailey? What do you want me to tell Dr. Montgomery-Shepherd when she answers her page.
Dr. Miranda Bailey: [a splash is heard and everyone looks at Dr. Bailey's feet] Tell her my contractions are ten minutes apart and my water just broke all over your shoes.

Dr. George O'Malley: Bailey's in there!
Dr. Richard Webber: Bailey's back?
[looks into exam room]
Dr. Richard Webber: O'Malley!
Dr. George O'Malley: She's in labour. Dr Montgomery-Shephard is examining her cervix.
Dr. Richard Webber: I can see that quite clearly. O'Malley, stop looking!
Dr. George O'Malley: Pretty amazing right? Miracle of life...
Dr. Richard Webber: Our Bailey, becoming a mother. Feels good having Bailey back at the hospital, balance has been restored.
Dr. George O'Malley: That's all I'm saying sir.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Hey guys, what's going on?
Dr. Richard Webber: Bailey's in there.
Dr. Derek Shepherd: Oh Bailey's back? That's excellent!
[looks into exam room]
Dr. Derek Shepherd: And her cervix is being examined by my wife... which is an image I'll never get out of my head. Thanks for the warning.


"Grey's Anatomy: Staring at the Sun (#3.8)" (2006)
Dr. Meredith Grey: Why bother even having a kid if you're only going to see it on weekends and holidays. You might as well just get a cat.
Dr. George O'Malley: I talked to Dr. Burke, I think he's fine.
Dr. Cristina Yang: You did what?
Dr. Meredith Grey: What's wrong with Burke?
Dr. Cristina Yang: Nothing's wrong with anybody.
Dr. George O'Malley: You know he let her decanulate a heart this morning?
Dr. Meredith Grey: You decanulated a heart this morning? By yourself? B****!
Dr. Cristina Yang: No, not by myself.
Dr. George O'Malley: Now she's lying about it.
Dr. Alex Karev: Yang decanulated a heart. Why is Alex not surprised?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Izzie isn't either. Last week, Izzie was digging through crap, this week she's fondling man boobs. No decanulating hearts for Izzie!
Dr. George O'Malley: Why aren't you bragging about decanulating the heart?
Dr. Cristina Yang: I didn't decanulate the heart
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Izzie and Alex do not believe you.
Dr. Meredith Grey: Okay, what are you two doing?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [giggles] Izzie and Alex have a patient who speaks about himself in the third person.
Dr. Alex Karev: They thought it was annoying at first, but now they kinda like it
Dr. Meredith Grey: Good, is it gonna stop soon?
Dr. Cristina Yang: What happened? This morning you were all bright and shiny, asking to be kicked in the face
Dr. Meredith Grey: I am. I'm bright. I'm shiny.
Dr. Cristina Yang: Yeah.
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: Izzie thinks that this whole "Bright and Shiny" thing is getting old.
Dr. Alex Karev: Alex agrees.

Dr. Meredith Grey: I mean why bother even having a kid when you're only going to see it on weekends and holidays? You might as well get a cat.
Dr. George O'Malley: I talked to Burke. I think he's fine.
Dr. Cristina Yang: You did what?

[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.
