    • Teddy: You don't have to do this, y'know?
      Cristina: I want to.
      Teddy: He's the chief of surgery.
      Cristina: And that heart is the size of a football. (watching Alex in the patient's room) Oh, oh. He's leaving.
      Teddy: Alright, go. Go now.
      Cristina (walks into the Mr. Vanderburg's room): Mrs. Vanderburg, I'm Dr. Yang, and-- and I'm so sorry to hear about your husband's accident.
      Mrs. Vanderburg: Are you one of his doctors?
      Cristina: Oh, I'm not, but I'm familiar with his case, and I just wanted to assure you that everyone here is doing everything that they can for him.
      Mrs. Vanderburg (voice breaking): That's so nice.
      Cristina: I'm sure they've assembled a wonderful group of surgeons. Dr. Altman really is the best there is.
      Mrs. Vanderburg: W-Wait. No. I don't think that they mention an Altman. No, they said something about a Dr. McQueen. Is that right? Is he good, too?
      Cristina: Dr. McQueen? Oh, uh, sure. He's-- He's fine.
      Mrs. Vanderburg: Fine?
      Cristina: Well, he's-- he's an experienced surgeon. But he's not the head of the department. Dr. Altman is the head of the department. You know, I-- With the extent of your husband's injuries, I... I just assumed that she was on the case. But... I'm sure there's nothing to worry about. Dr. Altman probably wasn't available anyways, she's very busy these days... saving lives.
