Arizona: Oh, I have wine. White and Red, and I have cigarettes. Which is awful I know, but I only smoke on very rare, very occasionally. And, only when I know I'm gonna be in trouble. Like now.
Callie: It was inappropriate. Not to mention manipulative and stupid. You smoke?
Arizona: I know. Listen, I know you have every right to be mad at me but I ran out of options. So...
Callie: It's an expensive test, there was no indication to do it, there was a reason Webber turned you down.
Arizona: So you didn't do it?
Callie: Of course I did it Arizona.
Arizona: Thank you!

Mark: More suits? It's freaking people out. There's talk of downsizing, corporate take overs, rumors that Webber's jumping ship. You've got the Chief's ear. What's he got planned?
Derek: He's retiring. They're making me Chief.
Mark: No!
Derek: Yeah.
Mark: Really?
Derek: Yeah...
Mark: Really?
Derek: Yep.
Mark: Wow.
Derek: Mhm.
Mark: I mean, the Chief never said anything to me. I would have fought you hard for that. Well, I guess if that's what he wants, I guess congratulations are in order. (Derek laughs) Wait... that was... You're messing with me!
Derek: It's just too easy.
Mark: Oh, you've got a mean streak. You know that?
Derek: Yeah.
Mark: Mean! Seriously, what's going on?
Derek: I have no idea.

Cristina: She asked me a question, I was right to answer it. I did my job. A patient asked me to disclose the risks of a surgical procedure and I am required by law and my oath to do so. If you know a way to sugar coat a colostomy bag I would like to hear it.
Bailey: If you know a more respectful way to speak to an attending surgeon I'd like to hear that. Until you do, you don't talk to me. You're off my service.
Cristina: Ok, ok. Seriously! What is your problem?

Ok. Cristina, um, he talks to you. He's comfortable with you. Does he talk to you about his trauma? Does Owen talk to you about the war? Does he talk to you about the incident between you two? The choking? Owen's post traumatic stress is fed by his avoidance of talking about anything in the war. In order to improve, to heal, he's going to have to start talking about it. To you and to me. And, my concern is, if you get lost in the lust of it all... he won't have to make a start. He won't have any reason to. He'll feel that he has everything he needs, until he doesn't. So, I'm asking you to wait.

Dr. Wyatt

Cristina: Ah he trained at Northwestern, and then at Harvard. He grew up like, 5 miles away from here. Um, not rich. Not poor. Comfortable. And, well loved by his parents. But um, itching to do something more with his life. Which is when he enlisted at the age of...
Owen: Cristina, this is not a book report.
Cristina: I'm trying to explain to Dr. Wyatt that I know things about you.

Lexie: So um, did you forget to mention that your hot, hardcore, ex sex friend lives right across the hall?
Mark: Did I?
Lexie: YEAH! Yeah, you did.

Mark: Really? Nothing?
Lexie: Nope.
Mark: You don't even want a drawer?
Lexie: No!
Mark: How about a toothbrush? A change of panties?
Lexie: No.
Mark: Damn, I like your panties.

Cristina: These are good! Do they sell these in the cafeteria?
Meredith: No.
Izzie: No, those are the cancer pops.
Cristina: Why do cancer people get all the fun?
Meredith: How do you feel Iz?
Izzie: I'm not looking forward to the hurling that's about to happen, but I feel ok. I feel good.
Cristina: Bailey's on some sort of rampage. I think it's Post O'Malley Stress Disorder.
Meredith: She's not dealing with her grief.
Cristina: You sound like Owen's shrink.
Meredith: Owen's shrink is withholding sex, so she is grumpy and inappropriate.
Izzie: Is Derek doing that too? Withholding sex?
Meredith: Why would Derek withhold sex?
Izzie: Alex is withholding everything. It's like he's afraid, but I don't know what afraid of.
Cristina: He's afraid of the cancer sex.
Meredith: Cristina!
Cristina: He doesn't wanna end up with a cancer pop.
Izzie: Just shut the hell up. I'm not contagious Cristina.
Cristina: I know that. I would totally have sex with you.

Bailey: Where do you get off killing my patients Yang?
Cristina: Killing?
Bailey: When you take it upon yourself to talk that girl out of a life saving surgery, you're killing her.
Cristina: I didn't talk her... She had questions about the surgery. You left the room.
Bailey: No, I left the room to give a very fragile, very distraught patient time and space to accept what's being asked of her. Then and only then would I have discussed the possible risks, with I'm certain, more tact and sensitivity than you've ever displayed in all the time that I've known you.
Cristina: She asked...
Bailey: No! I don't care what she asked you, and if she asked you anything else you're only answer will be "Let me ask my Attending."

Alex: Dude, are you crying?
Arizona: I have authority issues. Walk away Karev!

Arizona: McDreamy.
Alex: Sorry.
Arizona: I get it now. The whole McDreamy thing. I didn't get it before, but now I totally get it. You know they call you that, right?
Alex: Yes.
Arizona: I'm involved, by the way. In case you thought I was coming onto you just now, which I was not. Plus I heard you got married, by the way. So, congratulations!
Derek: Yes, thank you.
Alex: He wrote some hokey crap on a post-it note in the residents' lounge. Sorry but until you're sweating it out in a morning coat, you're not really married.
Derek: I've consummated mine. I consummate mine all the time. How's that going for you Karev? Girls talk. You might want to think about that the next time you criticize my post-it.

Izzie: Get up. I mean it. Get up! Now go get a life.
Amanda: I can't.
Izzie: George was a surgeon. He had a purpose. He wanted to save lives. Now he doesn't get the chance. Now he doesn't get the chance to do anything anymore. But you do. You could go to medical school. You could hang out with your freaking friends. I don't care what you do, just go do something with your life, because you have one. You lived, and George didn't! And I know that feels horrible and shocking and terrifying, but you lived. So go live your freaking live.
Amanda: I don't know how.
Izzie: Nobody does. Nobody knows how. But God, have enough respect for George to go figure it out. Because if I see you sitting on this bench ever again, I will kick your ass from here to Sunday.

Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Episode 2 Quotes

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.

The dictionary defines grief as keen mental suffering or distress over affliction or loss; sharp sorrow; painful regret. As surgeons, as scientists, we're taught to learn from and rely on books, on definitions, on definitives. But in life, strict definitions rarely apply. In life, grief can look like a lot of things that bear little resemblance to sharp sorrow.
