Isobel "Izzie" Stevens
Jeff Perry and James Gammon both appear as guest stars in this episodes, they previously worked together on the 90's cop series Nash Bridges.
When Izzie walked in we didn't see bring the bottle of lotion she was using while talking to Meredith and when she walked out she didn't carry it either.
Goof: When Izzie trips the breaker in the kitchen, the entire house wouldn't lose power as they imply it to be. Only the kitchen would have lost power until the breaker was fixed.
Goof: In the scene the interns are having lunch there's a shot showing Cristina's sandwich having two bites followed by a shot in which it has only one.
Derek (about Meredith to Thatcher): She's tough, but she tries to hide it, she's difficult, but if you make an effort, she's worth it.
Cristina: Why am I gonna screw up this engagement?
Meredith: I don't know. Do you want to?
Cristina: I don't know.
Meredith: My mom is dead.
Cristina: Yeah, she is.
George: I need you to get over yourself. I need you to start liking my wife. I need you to like her because sometimes I don't and I need you to talk me back into it. You say you're my friend and that's the job.
George: I need to vent, and I need it to be okay.
George: And I need to vent with alcohol. (Izzie gets glasses, then goes to pour them a drink, George stops her) I got married and I'm scared that it was a bad idea.
Izzie (sighs): Nobody ever got married and didn't think that at least once.
Cristina: Why are you sitting in the dark?
Meredith: Izzie blew a fuse.
Cristina: Okay, I'm having a crisis.
Meredith: Oh, I don't need rescueing. Susan is very nice and we're getting through it.
Susan: Limping through but we'll make it.
Cristina: This isn't a fake crisis. This a real my ex-is-about-to-ruin-my-impending-marriage-crisis.
George (walks in): Hey! Hey, where's Izzie?
Meredith: Kitchen. (to Susan) Sorry, it's not always like this.
Cristina: Yeah, it kinda is.
Izzie: You want some pie?
Alex: Nah, I gotta go.
Izzie: Ooh, big plans. Got a hot date? (Alex is silent) Oh. Well, good for you. I guess not interested, really meant not interested.
Alex: Izz, you didn't want me.
Izzie: Yeah. But that doesn't mean I want you to want anyone else. Am I gonna be alone? Pining over a dead guy forever?
Alex: I hope not. It's kind of a waste.
Izzie: Am I suppoed to move on now? Do people look at me and go 'she's gotta get over it already, it's ruining her life.'
Alex: You'll move on when you're ready to. (kisses her cheek)
Burke: How did it end?
Cristina: It ended. School was done, I was leaving.
Burke: You were done.
Cristina: I came here. I fell in love with you.
Burke: A new mentor with a bunch of new things to teach.
Cristina: Oh, if you think that I'm in this for the education --
Burke: Do you or do you not find my knowledge and my skill compelling?
Cristina: Oh, but you know what? You are blowing this way out of --
Burke: A man three times your age, believes he's having a substainal relationship with you --
Cristina: Well, he was --
Burke: And one day, you're done. Just like that.
Cristina (frustrated): Ugh, yes.
Burke: No. You don't open yourself up -- to anyone. Sometimes I think it's charming and she's different, she's not like other women. The simple fact is that you have never let me in. What? You think that it's gonna make a good marriage? 'Cause I don't. I don't want you to marry me because you're placating me. It doesn't interest me. It doesn't interest me at all.
Bailey: You look like you've had a long day.
Richard: You know what fragging is?
Richard: We've had an epidemic of it today. My assteamed attendings are gonna be the death of me.
Bailey: Is there a front-runner?
Richard: I don't know. What I do know is that I don't want my attendings tearing each other's throats out because of some internal power struggle. It's too dangerous for the hospital.
Bailey: Does that mean -- Is Colin Marlow gonna be the new chief?
Richard: Good night, Dr. Bailey.
Mr. Scofield: You're a sweet kid, but you don't know what it's like to have something change you in your soul.
Izzie: I do. I wish I didn't, but I do.
Derek: Somethin' happen with Jane Doe?
Mark: Yeah, she can see and Addison's got a problem with it.
Addison: He rushed her into surgery and she almost lost the baby. I had to sew her cervix shut.
Mark: The complications had nothing to do with the surgery.
Addison: And, why? Why? Do you think Mark moved so fast, Derek? Do you think it's because a piece of the orbital bone was floating towards the brain?
Derek: Well, I think it's because Mark wants a promotion.
Mark: You're not her husband. This isn't your patient. Stay out of it!
Cristina: Is it a problem that I slept with my professor or that I was commited enough to keep at it for three years?
Burke: No, no. You told him that you thought marriage was an idiotic institution.
Cristina: It is.
Burke: Then why did you say 'yes'?
Cristina: Because I wanna make you happy.
Cristina: You know, I'll do a lot of things to make you happy. Do I give a crap about a cermony with a dress and a guest list? No. But I'm happy to it if it'll make you happy.
Burke: Heart warming, thanks. (walks away)
George: She's rich. Totally rich. Boatloads of money.
Meredith: George, that's fantastic.
George: No, it's -- it's not fantastic.
Izzie (walks up): Cristina did Colin Marlow.
Meredith: Callie's rich.
George (slams his cup down): Don't talk to her about it.
Izzie: Her? Her? I'm sorry I don't have a name anymore?
George: Don't tell anyone. Those are my words.
Izzie: So, she's rich.
George: Just shut up about it. Do you think that's possible? (George gets up and walks away)
Izzie: You give me the 'people is what matters' thing again and I will kill you.
Izzie: Colin Marlow. So was it good? Was he good? Did he make you a better lover?
Cristina: Do you remember all the other times I've spoken to you about my sex life?
Alex: Did I miss anything about her doing the old guy?
Izzie: No, she's not talkin'.
Alex: Oh, she'll talk.
Meredith: So I was supposed to be back in the game today but instead I'm planning dinner for my father in my dead mother's house. I don't cook. How am I supposed to cook for them?
Izzie: I will make your stupid dinner. (turns to Cristina) So were there any little blue pills involved or is he untouched by the miracle of time?
Alex: Dude, that's just wrong, don't answer that.
Cristina (to Meredith): 'Cause I am your friend, I will show up 45 minutes into the dinner with a fake crisis... so if it's that unbearable you can abort.
Meredith: Thank you.
Izzie: C'mon he's not a young man. He wasn't getting a little help? Popping the pill? Dad's best friend? C'mon you're going to give me nothing after everything we've been through? Nothing?
Cristina: It's a miracle drug. And someday (pointing at Alex) it's going to save your life.
Addison: I thought we had a deal.
Mark: We agreed I wouldn't sleep with anybody for two months. We never said I couldn't look. You didn't think I'd hold out?
Addison: No, I didn't.
Mark: You're worth it.
Addison: You bet your ass I am.
George: No, come on. I'm not gonna let you pay for all the food. Just tell me how much the room service bill is.
Callie: We pay about ... mmm ... 800 a week.
Callie: I told you not to worry about it.
George: You can't afford that.
Callie: Yes, I can.
George: How? (pause) I'm your husband now you're supposed to tell me this stuff.
Callie: Okay, just come here. (whispers) My parents have a lot of money. So, I have more money than I'm making. And we don't have a special deal with my family and friends through the Archfield. It's just -- I just pay for it.
George: How much?
Callie: Twenty five hundred a week.
George: You're an heiress.
Callie: Okay, this is why I don't tell people --
George: You're an heiress!
Callie: Stop talking.
George: You're an heiress?
Callie: Shh. Don't-- Don't. Stop talking. Stop talking, I mean it. I didn't tell you because my parents money has affected every single relationship that I've ever had in my life and I've stopped talking about it and living it.
George: No, wait. Wait, I pay you 200 dollars a week, for what? Fun?
Callie: No. I use it to tip housekeeping.
Dr. Marlow: I can't believe you hid in the closet when you seen me coming. If it wasn't just tragic, it might have been the most aborable thing I've ever seen.
Cristina: You could've warned me.
Dr. Marlow: I said Cristina Yang couldn't possibly be hiding in the closet because she doesn't wanna talk to me, which clearly she doesn't because she fled like a roach in sunlight when she saw me coming.
Cristina: I did not flee. I-- I have work to do. I'm not a professional note taker anymore.
Dr. Marlow: You grew your hair. It's lovely.
Cristina: Don't flirt with me. I have a person.
Dr. Marlow: Really, who?
Cristina: Preston Burke.
Dr. Marlow (laughs): Really? You've never changed. It must be adorable.
Cristina: Shut up. It is a real relationship.
Dr. Marlow: I bet it is.
Cristina: I'm marrying him.
Dr. Marlow: Good. Congratulations. (Cristina rolls her eyes and turns to walk away) I'm being genuine. Could I give you a congratulatory hug?
Cristina: Don't touch my ass.
Meredith: This is my hiding spot. My father's out there. Go somewhere else.
Cristina: I need this closet, Meredith.
Meredith: Colin Marlow.
Cristina: He was my professor, we were close.
Meredith: He had his hand on your ass, I sure hope you were close.
(from the outside of the closet)
Susan Grey: Did you see somebody go in there?
Dr. Marlow: I did. I think someone's hiding from me.
Susan: I think someone's hiding from me too.
(back inside the closet)
Meredith (smiling): You were that girl, huh? The one that slept with the professor. We had one in my class. She only got to the radiologist though. But no one got near the cardio guy.
Cristina: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I scored big. You know, hide in the bathroom.
Meredith: My akwardness with my father is well established. You and the cardio God on the other hand have loads to catch up on.
Cristina: I don't wanna talk to the cardio God.
Dr. Marlow: You know, we can hear you in there, right? Loud and clear.
Izzie: What are you doing tonight? Cause I don't wanna go home and find Alex there, and it's just the two of us, ya know? Weird and awkward and he doesn't know whether he should talk to me or not talk to me and it's just such an awkward situation and I'd just rather it'd be group awkwardness, ya know? (Meredith sees Thatcher and ducks into the closet) I don't just want to be standing there staring at him ... Meredith?
Cristina (walks up): Hey, have you seen Montgomery?
Izzie: No. Hey, whatchya doin' tonight? You wanna come over? You and I never really get a chance to hang out and it might be kinda fun. (Cristina sees Dr. Marlow and ducks into the same closet Meredith just did) Alex just moved in, which was Meredith's brilliant idea and he still has a thing for me, so it's kinda... (sees no sight of Cristina and Meredith but sees Meredith step mom and Dr. Marlow approaching) What the hell?
Burke (about Cristina and Dr. Marlow hugging): So, what was that exactly?
Cristina: Well, he was my professor. We were close.
Burke: Well, close appears to be something of an understatment.
Cristina: It was a long time ago.
Burke: I talk about him all the time, you never thought to mention it?
Cristina: Well... um, I didn't think you wanted to hear about every guy that I've ever slept with. (enters the elevator) Okay? Are we done with the curiousity because I have a histroectomy to prep.
Derek: Dr. O'Malley. This is Dr. Crawford. She's a big pain in the ass.
Dr. Crawford: That is because when we worked together in New York I was the only one who didn't have a crush on him.
Derek (joking): Now, I don't buy that.
Bailey: Grey, SCUT.
Meredith: Once again, I am fine.
Bailey: You can tell everybody you're fine until you're blue in the face. Your mom died and you almost joined her. You're takin' it easy.
Izzie: He's in George's room, and when George's stupid marriage crashes and burns, he's gonna wanna move back in, he won't be able to. His life will be in shambles, he'll finally notice that his dad is dead, and he made a fool of himself by marrying someone he doesn't really love, and he'll have no place to go. Is that what you want?
Meredith: That's exactly what I want. (she rolls her eyes)
Alex (to Izzie): Look who found some clothes.
Izzie: Shut it.
George (to Meredith): How you doin?
Meredith: Okay, everybody? Let's just do this once: I'm fine. She's cremated. I picked out a beautiful urn and she's hanging out in the back of my closet. Any more questions about my dead mother, or can we get back to work?
George (rambling to Callie): You know, she's selfish. That is what Izzie's problem is. No, she's not selfish, she's very generous. But she's self-absorbed. I mean, I mean, her problem is that she doesn't see other people's perspectives. (Callie takes a bite of his food) You know, it's weird because she's so ridculously compassionate about her patients, you'd think she'd roll some of that off her friends. But---
Callie: How about we not talk about her anymore?
George: That's a fine idea.
Izzie: Alex is moving in?! To this house?!
Meredith: He's taking George's room.
Derek: I was asleep just a minute ago.
Izzie: Uh! And I was naked - in the bathroom - when Alex walked in. I'm lucky I didn't come out of the shower to see him peeing all over the seat.
Derek: And we're up. (Derek leaves)
Izzie: What's wrong with where he was living before?
Meredith: I don't know where he was living before.
Izzie: Probably a whorehouse. (Meredith laughs) I can't have him living in the room right next door. It's weird.
Meredith: People are what matters. Alex is one of our people. We can't just leave him out in the cold.
Izzie: 'People are what matters.' You don't like people. Is this about your mother?
Meredith: No! I had a near-death whatever and I was dead. And now I'm not. So, I'd like to use this chance I've been given to be more positive. People are what matters. Paint with all the colors of the wind.
Izzie: Oh, okay. You're crazy now.
Meredith (giggling): I'm alive.
Izzie: Yeah, okay.
Izzie (coming out of the shower): Alex! God!
Alex: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I've seen it all before.
Izzie: What the hell are you doing here?
Alex: Movin' in.
Susan: We're here because we wanted to make sure that you were alright.
Meredith: Oh, that's sweet. But we don't have to do this. I'm not in shock. I'm not racked with grief, I'm just moving on.
Susan: But, you're hiding in a broom closet.
Meredith: Well, if you could just move my father.
Susan: I sent him to go get some coffee. But we'd really like to make dinner or something... for you. He's been really worried about you. He's the family that you have left, Meredith.
Meredith: I-- I don't see it that way.
Susan: Oh. Oh, when is this gonna stop? Yes, he made some mistakes, but he's not a monster. He's just an inarticulate person that spills food on his shirt- a lot.
Meredith (closing voiceover): What's worse? New wounds which are so horribly painful or old wounds that should have healed years ago and never did? Maybe our old wounds teach us something. They remind us where we've been and what we've overcomed. They teach us lessons about what to avoid in the future. That's what we like to think. But that's not the way it is, is it? Somethings we'd just have to learn over and over and over...again.
Izzie: You need to bond with your people. People are what matters.
Meredith: I hate people.
Derek: Dr. Marlow, Derek Sheperd, neuro. I'm doing a sigal sinus bypass today if you'd like to observe.
Dr. Marlow: Really, that's quite a procedure.
Burke: It's a good trick but if you're really interested to see what this hospital can do, I'm performing a arterial switch operation for TGA this afternoon.
Dr. Marlow: If you gentleman are trying to intimidate the competition, it's working.
Dr. Marlow: I'll see both of you in surgeries. (walks away)
Derek: Colin Marlow.
Burke: The one and only.
Meredith (opening voiceover): People have scars. In all sorts of unexpected places. Like secret roadmaps of their personal histories. Diagrams of all their old wounds. Most of our wounds heal, leaving nothing behind but a scar. But some of them don't. Some wounds we carry with us everywhere and though the cut's long gone, the pain still lingers.
(Izzie walks up to a lot of the hospital staff who are just standing around)
Izzie: You guys seen Bailey? What are we doing?
George: Uh, checkin' out the new chief candidate.
Meredith: Chief's in with a ringer. We're lurking. In a way that was subtle when it was two of us but isn't now that it's twelve.
Cristina: I heard it was someone from Stanford. All the professors there loved me.
Alex: They loved you?
Cristina: I was a great student.
Burke (walks up, talking to Meredith): How you doing, Grey? (Cristina pulls him out of the way so she can see)
Meredith: Oh. I'm fine, sir. Thank you.
George (talking to Burke): She doesn't like it when people ask.
Cristina: The ringer's in there with the Chief.
Izzie (with a lot of sarcasm and eye rolling): Yeah and whoever it is loves Cristina because everyone at Stanford just loved Cristina.
Cristina: Shut up.
Burke: She's a motivated student, there's nothing to be ashamed of.
Cristina: Thank you.
Burke: Bit of a kiss ass but that's hard to control.
George: Oh look, they're comin' out. Look away.
Burke: That's Colin Marlow.
Alex: Like the Marlow transplant?
Burke: Like the brightest thing in cardiothoracic surgery in our generation.
uh, (walks forward to shake hands with Colin Marlow) Dr. Marlow. I'm uh, I'm Preston Burke. I'm a great admirer of your work sir. Particularly the uh...
Colin Marlow (interrupting): Yes, thank you, uh would you excuse me for just a second. (walks up to Cristina) Well, you gonna give me a hug or what? (Dr. Marlow slowly pulls Cristina into a hug. Marlo grabs Cristina's ass while all the other interns and Burke are watching. The Grey's Anatomy title rolls)
Callie: Izzie Stevens. I share something that I'm clearly uncomfortable about and you tell Izzie Stevens.
George: No, I didn't tell Izzie. I told Meredith. Meredith told --
Callie: Oh! Oh, so that's better.
George: No, it was an accident. I didn't mean-- (Callie throws her purse on the chair angerly) It was an accident! I was pissed off. Why can't you give me the benefit of the doubt that -- that maybe sometimes I'm on your side?
Callie: Because you choose your friends over me every chance you get.
George: No, I don't. I married you. And I haven't talked to my best friend in weeks. Meanwhile you lied to me about where we live and why. You lied to me about your background, you lied to me about your family! And still I'm the dog that get's whacked on the nose with the newspaper all the time! When is this gonna stop?!
Callie: Oh, so this is my problem?!
George: Yeah, maybe it is!
Callie: Oh, so the fact that your best friend violently disses are marriage every chance she gets -- publically, repeatedly, why do you think she does that, George? Have you ever thought about that?!
George: She's having a problem with this. I understand that!
Callie: She has feelings for you!
George (taken aback): What?
Callie (upset): She wants you. And that's what this is about, that's why she hates me.
George: No. (keeps shaking his head)
Callie: George, George. Do not laugh at me. Do not laugh at me!
George (choked up): I'm not. I'm not. It's just that-- c'mon. She's Izzie. She's-- She's blonde. She's stacked. She's a supermodel. And I'm - I mean, I'm George.
Callie: So what does that make me?
George: No, c'mon. You're gorgeous and you're curvy and I never thought that you'd go for me.
Callie: Just shut up. (starts to cry) This is my hotel room. That I pay for with my huge piles of money. (throws his jacket at him) Get the hell out of it!
Meredith: I just agreed to have dinner at my father's house. Tonight.
Meredith: And, Cristina slept with Colin Marlow.
Derek: Marlow, transplant Marlow?
Meredith: They had a thing when she was a student.
Derek: He slept with Cristina?
Derek: Oh, right, sorry, okay. Um, have dinner at your house. It's your place, I'll come. I'll be your wingman. It'll be fun. Okay, it won't be fun. It'll be fine. They're your family.
Meredith: Why does everyone assume that?
Derek: Because you deserve to have a family. Even if you don't like them.
Czech Republic: Jizvy a suvenýry (Scars and Souvenirs)
Germany: Alte Wunden (Old Wounds)
At the end of the episode George & Izzie are drinking from a bottle marked 'Door River'. Their is no such thing as 'Door River', the bottle shape and label type are actually from Knob Creek Whiskey. Kind of interesting since 'Door River' and words that relate to 'Knob Creek'.
