Cristina: You and McDreamy did the Nasty Nasty?
[Meredith glares at her]
Cristina: I'm not judging! I'm just trying to wrap my mind around it. I mean, you are with Finn and he's with Addison.
Meredith: He's married to Addison.
Cristina: YEAH! [pause] Well what did Derek say?
Meredith: He said "Meredith what does this mean?"
Cristina: Ugh! Ok! He has sex with you and he's standing there all McGuilty and all he can say is "Oh, What does this mean?" [pause] What does this mean?
Izzie: Can you please, please, just get out? I want to be alone with Denny.
Alex: Izzie, that’s not Denny.
Izzie: Shut up.
Alex: Iz, 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.
Izzie: An hour ago he was proposing. And now he... and now he's going to the morgue. Isn't that ridiculous? Isn't it the most ridiculous piece of crap you've ever heard? [Starts sobbing]
Meredith: Just leave me alone.
Derek: I just want to make sure you're alright.
Meredith: No! I'm not alright? Okay? Are you satisfied? I'm not alright. Because you have a wife, and you call me a whore, and our dog died, and now you're looking at me. Stop looking at me.
Derek: I am not looking at you. I am not looking at you.
Meredith: You are looking at me. And you watch me. And Finn has plans. And I like Finn. He's perfect for me, and I'm really trying here to be happy, and I can't breathe. I can't breathe with you looking at me like that so just stop!
Derek: Do you think I want to look at you? That I wouldn't rather be looking at my wife? I'm married. I have responsibilities. She, she doesn't drive me crazy. She doesn't make it impossible for me to feel normal. She doesn't make me sick to my stomach thinking about my veterinarian touching her with his hands. Man, I would give anything not to be looking at you.
Izzie: I'm a pretty girl.
Izzie: 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.
Chief: Dr. Stevens.
Izzie: 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.
Chief: Is that why you cut the wires?
Izzie: 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. But I can't feel anything but happy.
Cristina: There's only three careers I've ever wanted. Ruler of my own planet, Wonder Woman, or a surgeon. I don't see any invisible planes or extra countries lying around.
I choose you
Denny: What? You like your men sick and feeble? You don't dig healthy guys?
Izzie: I... I dig you.
Denny: Then why are you all swirly and twitchy?
Izzie: No, I'm not.
Denny: Yeah. You are swirly and twitchy. It's 'cause I asked you to marry me.
Izzie: So you remember that?
Denny: It’s not the kind of thing I'd forget.
Izzie: Yeah. Look, Denny, um, I'm giving you an out.
Denny: Excuse me?
Izzie: I'm giving you an out. I mean... You thought you were dying and I was saving your life and well, you know, it was so [gasp]. So, I won't hold it against you or be hurt or offended if you wanna take your proposal back... I'm giving you an out.
Denny: I don't want an out.
Izzie: You should take the out. [laughs nervously] We can't get married. I mean, that would be crazy, 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: OK, it's my turn now.
Izzie: But I need to . . .
Denny: 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] 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. And do everything in between with. I get a choice now. I get to choose. I choose you, Izzie Stevens. Okay, it's your turn again.
Meredith: Human beings need a lot of things to feel alive.
Derek: But we only need one thing...
Burke: To actually be alive.
Cristina: We need a beating heart.
Addison: When our heart is threatened...
Alex: we respond in one of two ways.
George: We either run...
Izzie: we attack.
Chief: There's a scientific term for this:
Addison: or flight.
Bailey: It's instinct...
Meredith: We can't control it.
Izzie: Or can we?
So what makes anger different from the six other deadly sins? It’s pretty...
In life we are taught that there are seven deadly sins. We all know the big...
We’re all damaged, it seems. Some of us, more than others. We carry the...
We all go through life like bulls in a china shop. A chip here, a crack there....
Izzie: All I'm saying George, is that if she needs to pee she can at least wear a bra. Or maybe wait until she's alone. And for the love of everything sanitary, could she just wash her hands? She's a surgeon!
George: You guys were blocking the sink. Anyways, I think you're exaggerating.
Izzie: She peed! Naked peeing! Ask Meredith, Meredith? Oh that's right, I forgot, you're not talking to her. If you were, she would tell you that Callie crosses the line. So crossed the line. So freaking crossed.
Alex: Oh, we're still pretending that you're not seeing a patient, right?
Cristina: People! What's with all the evil misery? Huh? Live, and let live.
George: You're cheerful.
Izzie: You are. How is that possible?
Cristina: I scrubbed in on a four hour paraesophageal surgery last night, and then I got laid. And now three ambulances are coming in full of bloody broken car crash victims, all who need to be cut open. So I'm cheery, I'm cheery, I am so cheery! I'm cheery! I'm cheerful!
A wise man once said – “You can have anything in life if you’re willing to...
Life is not a spectator sport. Win, lose, or draw, the game is on. So go...
Name of the Game
Mom with Cancer: Study hard. Keep your grades up. But starting next year, you're gonna want to take two AP classes a semester if you want to get into a decent college.
Amelia: Mom, this is really morbid.
Mom: And your Aunt Sue is kind of lazy when it comes to personal hygiene, so you may have to be the one to remind her when its time to get your eyebrows waxed or your hair cut. But eventually she'll get the routine down.
Amelia: Can we not have this conversation?
Mom: Oh, this might sound random but, always wear underwear under pantyhose. I know it might feel a little bulky, but honestly it’s a little Slutty not to. And also, that’s how you get yeast infections.
Amelia: Mom, this is totally gross.
Mom: And marry a kind man. One who's nice to his mother. Now if he lives with his mother you run the opposite way.
Amelia: Mom, I'm not getting married anytime soon.
Mom: You will someday, and when that day comes, just have one glass of champagne and then you drink water for the rest of the night. Because there is nothing tackier than a drunken bride.
Amelia: Mom, I don’t want to... why are you telling me all this?
Mom: Honey, I've been sick for a long time and the doctors don't think that I'm going to get better.
Mom: Amelia, listen to me. Look at me. Amelia. This is important. This one is... is really the important one. Someday you're gonna have a baby. And you're gonna feel overwhelmed by this little life you're responsible and you're going to think... worry that everything you do is wrong. And that's normal. You’re gonna obsess about what to feed it and where to send it to school and whether it should take violin or piano. But I'm gonna let you in on a little secret: it doesn't matter. Whether your kid is a concert pianist or a math genius. It just doesn't matter. Because, at the end of the day, all that matters is if your kid is happy. So you're gonna feel sad for a little while. And that's OK. That’s... that's fine. But don't feel sad forever okay? You promise me that? You promise me that you won't feel sad for too long?
Amelia: I promise.
Mom: Thank you. Because you're making me feel much better.
Izzie: He's just not George anymore. He's broken George. First he chops off his hair. Then he starts hanging out with this... Callie. That is not a name. Callie! Who is she anyway? I'm his best friend. Not that he talks to me anymore.
Denny: Triple word score. 69 points. Woman, I am beating the pants off of you. Pay attention. What in the hell are you doing?
Izzie: I'm knitting a sweater. Actually Meredith, that's my friend, the friend that broke George, is knitting a sweater. She's not really knitting a sweater, because she cannot knit, but I want her to think she is knitting, because she and I took a celibacy vow, so she's replacing sex with knitting, so I am knitting pieces of Meredith's sweater, so she can actually believe she is knitting, because if anybody needs to be celibate, it's Meredith, because she broke George, you know?
Denny: You took a vow of celibacy?
Denny: How am I supposed to get in your pants if you took a vow of celibacy?
Izzie: That is a very inappropriate thing to say to your doctor.
Denny: Oh, you know what's inappropriate? Promising sexual favors to a patient in order to get them to live, and then backing out.
Izzie: Denny Duquette, I so never, ever promised—
Denny: In my head you did. In my head, you delivered.
Denny: But don't worry, you weren't very good.
Izzie: OK. You know what, I was being nice. I was letting you win, because you're "Mr. Sick Needs a New Organ Guy," but just for that ccomment, I'm gonna kick your ass. Yeah, I'm gonna— you put down "mount," Denny?
Joe: Dude, is she knitting?
Derek: You know, as a friend, I gotta tell you, you look a little weird.
Meredith: I'm making a sweater.
Joe: You're knitting. In a bar. You can't knit in a bar, you’re scaring the customers.
Derek: Come on, have a drink.
Meredith: I can't have a drink, I'm celibate.
Joe: You mean sober? She means sober.
Meredith: No, celibate. I'm practicing celibacy and drinking does not go well with celibacy because it makes everything and everyone seem kind of porn-y. And then my head gets all cloudy and then the next thing you know I'm naked. My point is I'm celibate and knitting is good for surgical dexterity so I'm making a sweater.
Derek: You? Celibate? I just don't buy it.
Meredith: No more men.
Addison: No more men? Really? You? I'm asking, because we're friends.
Meredith: Every guy I meet turns out to be married.
Derek: Ooh ouch.
Meredith: Sorry. Or Mark.
Addison: OK I'm going to over there now [she gets up and leaves]
Meredith: Sorry. Or, remember the horrible thing I did? Remember George?
Derek: You're making a sweater.
Meredith: I am making a sweater.
