Dr. Keith Greene: Yeah.
Ric Griffin: How many?
Dr. Keith Greene: 14.
Ric Griffin: That is NOT a shortlist!
Dr. Keith Greene: Well, I don't make the rules, Ric. If you wanna have a fight about how shortlists AREN'T shortlists, but are in fact they're LONGlists, you speak to HR.
Michael Spence: Alright, what are we shortlisting now?
Dr. Keith Greene: The stars of theatre.

Dr. Keith Greene: Heh, you're just scared she might cramp your style.

Dr. Keith Greene: Secret drinkers.

"Holby City: Body Language (#11.39)" (2009)
[Connie and Keith are rivals for the Director of Surgery post. Connie has just given a presentation to the Board in which she has tried to take ownership of a new procedure that Elliot and Tara are developing]
Keith Greene: I don't think I've congratulated you on your most inspired pitch to the Board.
Connie Beauchamp: Well I'm glad you could catch it.
Keith Greene: Of course my strategy is based on showing individual Board members who I really am - the man behind the surgical mask. In fact my brother-in-law was a friend of the Vice Chairman. He plays golf and he's setting up a game for us.
Connie Beauchamp: Ah, so that's what they mean by your bunker mentality.
[Keith laughs]
Keith Greene: Say what you like, Connie. At least I'm not prepared to tread on my colleagues to get to the top. And Mr Hope. Oh dear! Of all people. That's like smacking a puppy on the head with a croquet mallet.
Connie Beauchamp: Go to hell, Keith.
Keith Greene: [gleefully] Oh yes. You are starting to feel the heat.

Keith Greene: Very good. Now the only thing we need to be careful about is Mr McGregor here dying of shock when we tell him he's pregnant!

"Holby City: Deep Dark Truthful Mirror (#9.29)" (2007)

Connie Beauchamp: Ridiculous rule! My pregnancy wasn't a problem yesterday. Today I'm deemed unfit!
Dr. Keith Greene: But you can't get close enough to the patient in your condition, Mrs Beauchamp. The Trust is thinking of you and Dr. Griffin.
Connie Beauchamp: A large stomach doesn't seem to hamper Mr. Hope!

"Holby City: Final Cut (#10.17)" (2008)
Jocelyn Davidson: [gleefully] Drunk as a skunk, this feller.
