  • Quotes

    • George: This shift is a marathon, not a sprint. Eat.
      Izzie: I can't.
      George: You should eat something.
      Izzie: You try eating after performing 17 rectal exams. The Nazi hates me.
      George: The Nazi's a resident. I have attendings hating me.
      Cristina: You know Meredith is inbred?
      George: Like it's uncommon around here to be a doctor's parent?
      Cristina (interrupts): No royally inbred. Her mother is Ellis Grey.
      Izzie: Shut up. The Ellis Grey?
      George: Who's Ellis Grey?
      Cristina: Ellis ... (Izzie laughs. Other interns turn to look at George) The Grey method? Where'd you go to med school, Mexico?
      Izzie: She was one the first big chick surgeons and she practically invented the abdominal laparotomy.
      Cristina: She's a living legend. She won the Harper Avery. Twice!
      George: So, I didn't know one thing.
      Izzie: Talk about parental pressure.
      Cristina: God I would kill to have Ellis Grey as a mother. I'd kill to be Ellis Grey. (Meredith walks into the caf) All I need is one good case. (George makes a muffled warning when he sees Meredith. She sits down at their table)
      Meredith: Katie Bryce is a pain in the ass. If I hadn't taken the Hippocratic Oath I'd Kevorkian with my bare hands. (all the interns stare at her in awe. She notices) What?
