Grey's Anatomy Season 5 Episode 19: "Elevator Love Letter" Quotes
Meredith: Surgery has started.
Cristina: Hey, have they started the surgery yet?
Intern: Dr. Grey, we were wondering did Dr. Stevens' surgery start yet? Or...
Meredith: Keep it moving. No loitering in the OR hallway, that's the rule.
Alex: If they wanna stay, let them stay. People are better than no people.
Callie: Ok, so I get why I haven't been camped out at Izzie's beside holding her hand today, but...
George: We're not talking about this.
Callie: Why not?
George: Maybe it's the fact that I asked Izzie a hundred times what was wrong, and she just ignored me. And then there's the fact that when she actually needed help she trusted Cristina. Of all people!
Callie: And then there's the fact that she's your best friend and she might die on you. There's also that. Come on. We are going to go wait for Izzie. Come on. George! You were my husband and you slept with her. You are the reason that I wished her dead. You owe me this. You can lie to yourself all you want, but I know you. I loved you once, and I know you care if she lives or dies.
Derek: We'll see you soon Dr. Stevens.
Izzie: I hope so.
Bailey: Know so.
Izzie: Dr Bailey if something goes wrong...
Bailey: It wont.
Izzie: The scarf, I made it for you.
Derek: It's a beautiful night to save lives. Let's get started.
Meredith: What are you doing? You're gonna have to re-scrub.
Derek: I'm not ready.
Meredith: Yes you are.
Derek: I need to know that at least I have you, no matter what happens in there, i need to know. I need you to say yes. I need to know.
Meredith: I can't say yes. Not if agreeing to be with you forever will make it ok if Izzie dies. I can't say yes. I love you, and you can do this. You can do this. I know you can.
Richard: Ah, It's not a good time, he's still scrubbing in.
Meredith: I know, it's just, ah, he should wear this. It's his ferry boat scrub cap. He loves ferry boats.
Callie: I wished Izzie Stevens would die. I wished her dead every day, of every week, for I don't even know how long. I woke up every morning, wishing Izzie Stevens would die, and now... What kind of person wishes someone would die? What kind of doctor wishes, knowing how things happen. What kind of doctor wishes...
Arizona: Are you in here, right now, praying for Izzie to die?
Callie: No. I'm praying for her to live.
Meredith: Hey, How's Izzie?
George: I don't know.
Meredith: How's Izzie?
Meredith: Have you been to see her?
Cristina: No I've been working with Swinder all day.
Meredith: Have you been to see Izzie?
Alex: No, haven't you?
Richard: Did you talk to Izzie about this yet? Considering you two are basically conceiving a child together today, don't you think you should talk with her about this?
Alex: Look, you said she needed my contribution. Here's my contribution. Whatever.
Alex: Here's your cup. All filled up.
Richard: I'm eating here Karev.
Alex: It's fine, I washed my hands.

Cristina: I haven't seen you all day.
Owen: What if I hadn't woken up? I can't even remember what happened. It's gone. I have no memory, no way to... I would never hurt you, ever. But I did. My hands just... like how could... how could my own two hands be capable... I can't do this. Cristina... I can't...We can't do this... we need to stop seeing each other.
Cristina: But you did wake up. Stop blaming yourself for something that is out of your control.
Owen: We have to stop seeing each other.
Owen: I almost
Cristina: Almost what? I told you I know my limits. Let me decide what I can handle.
Alex: The Chief send you in here?
Meredith: Nope. I offered to come in. In case you needed to talk.
Alex: Hah, you think talking will help? You think a dixie cup full of my swimmers will make everything ok? It's crap. This is crap! You just can't go messing with peoples heads like that. Even if she freezes the embryo's do you think, you think we'll get a chance to use them? You think she'll still be here? YOU THINK SHE'LL SURVIVE ALL THIS? You think... I think...She told me... she told me she was seeing a ghost ok. And I'm so used to all the crazy chicks in my life, that I didn't even... I'm a doctor. A DOCTOR! And I didn't even think to... and now she's... this is wrong. This isn't how it's supposed to happen.
Meredith: I know.
Alex: It's crap!
Meredith: I know.
Alex: I hate this.
Meredith: I know.
Alex: This isn't... this isn't how we were supposed... this isn't how I wanted to do this. This isn't how Izzie and I were supposed to make a baby.
