    • Jane Burke: As you know I'm sure, he graduated first in his class and went to Blake.
      Cristina: I-- I did know that. (smiles) Actually, I graduated first in my class at Stanford.
      Jane Burke: Ah ... So you are planning to pursue a less time consuming speciality. Obstetrics perhaps? Or family medicine?
      Cristina: Oh, I'm in the surgical progam.
      Jane Burke: But after you're married?
      Cristina: Married? I'm sorry marr--
      Jane Burke: Come Cristina. You must've considered the possibility. You're no spring chicken. I don't know a young woman who wouldn't want marry my Preston given half the chance. He's handsome. He's brilliant. He's the best thing I've ever done in my life. He's the most important thing in the world to me.
      Cristina: Oh okay. ... Oh Burke! (she stands up out of her chair) Burke! Burke's here! Preston! Preston Burke is here!
      Burke: What a surprise my two favorite ladies all in one place.
      Jane Burke: Preston, what on earth are you doing out of bed?
      Burke: Oh, I wanted to get some-- I needed to stretch my legs, mama.
      Jane Burke: But you're not supposed to stretch your legs, you're supposed to be resting.
      Burke: Right. But I wanted to have some-- (looks at Cristina who is mouthing words to him) -- air. Some, stretching, some air and some coffee.
      Crisinta: We already have coffee. Have a seat.
      Burke: Just a second. (leaves)
      Jane Burke: You did this.
      Cristina: Did what?
      Jane Burke: Cristina, it's not that I don't like you. I think that you're a very smart, and a very attractive young woman. But you're selfish.
      Cristina: I beg your pardon.
      Jane Burke: Oh, you pulled him out of a sickbed because you were uncomfortable. That's selfish. You're selfish and my son is giving and the combination, well, it's not gonna last, not much longer.
