Meredith: "She's helping him."

Meredith: "You guys are overreacting."

Izzie: "Izzie and Alex have a patient who speaks about himself in the third person."
Alex: "They thought it was annoying at first, but now they kinda like it."
03.08 Staring at the SunMark: "Frank, these are interns. I'm supposed to be teaching them. Apparently, this is a teaching hospital. Karev?"
Alex: "Frank Jeffries is post op day three for pectoral enhancement surgery. There was a slight complication when a saroma formed."
Mark: [yawns] "And what is a saroma?"
Izzie: "A build up of blood and fluid under the skin."
Mark: "And that concludes today's teaching. A tube was inserted in Mr. Jeffries' chest to drain the excess fluid. I want you to monitor him, check the tube for fluid output, change the dressing, and Dr. Stevens, I guess you can... watch."
Alex: "Actually Dr. Stevens is an excellent doctor."
Mark: "Yeah. That's what I hear."
03.08 Staring at the SunMark: "How're you doing, Mr. Jeffries?"
Frank: "Oh, Frank's doin' okay. He'd be doin' alot better if the twins were even."

Frank: "You're lookin' at him!"
03.08 Staring at the SunAlex: "Dr. Stevens is shadowing me today, so-"
Izzie: "Which one of these cases do you need us on?"
Mark: "It's a really tragic one. I found out just this morning that I have over two weeks worth of dry cleaning that needs to be picked up. Stat."
Alex: "Cool, that's it?"
Mark: "See, we're like a well-oiled machine, you and me. I also need you two to get me a sandwich from that pathetic excuse for a deli. You know the one I like, Karev. Oh, and go easy on the mayo this time. I think you're trying to kill me."
03.08 Staring at the SunIzzie: "Tell me again why you put up with this crap?"
Alex: "Because one of these days he's gonna crack and let me in on a case."
Izzie: "You sure you wanna do plastics that badly?"
Mark: "There you are! What, did you go all the way to New York for my pastrami?"
Alex: "Extra spicy, extra lettuce, light on the mayo."
03.08 Staring at the SunIzzie: "I... I can't... I just..."
Alex: "Alex gets it. Alex is sorry he's such an idiot."
Izzie: [laughs] "Can Izzie buy Alex a drink?"
03.08 Staring at the SunIzzie: "I didn't know you still feel that way about me."
Alex: "I didn't either."

Alex: "Coffee cart must have screwed up."
Mark: "No, if you can't handle coffee, you can't handle plastics. Maybe you ought to head back to the gynie squad where life is all squishy and pink."

Addison: "Alex."

Addison: "You're not interested?"
Alex: "You think I wanna be just another intern sleeping an attending?"
Addison: "You kissed me back."
Alex: "You're my boss. I mean, what did you expect me to do? Look, Sloan's had me changing bandages all day, and I would way rather be scrubbing in one of your surgeries. And if you keep avoiding me, I don't get to scrub in, so stop avoiding me. [pauses] Look, it happened. But it doesn't have to happen again."

Meredith: "Derek kept me up all night with his ranting. Cristina and Burke still are not speaking to each other."
Cristina: "Okay, you know what? I'm fine. I mean I'm just not going to be the first one talking. He has to talk because I'm in the right. Talking first is for losers, and I'm winning."

Alex: "Ha. Who'd you pissed off to get that?"
Cristina: "I happen to be pulling gaping pieces of flesh back together."
Alex: "You're stitching. You're just one step closer to knitting your grandma's sweater."
Cristina: "At least mine's medical."
Alex: "You knit, I pull pylons off people."
Alex: "I rescued her. I climbed down. I pulled a massive pylon off her. I got her here alive."
Cristina: "There are pylons? There're pylons on people?"
03.15 Walk on WaterCristina: "Hey! What was the site like? Was it gory? Was it a trauma bonanza? Obviously terrible."
Alex: "I don't talk to thieves."
Cristina: "What?"
Alex: "You stole my Jane Doe right off from under me."
Cristina: "I am not a thief. Man, you balked. You're a balker."
Alex: "I was thinking."
03.15 Walk on WaterAlex: "Where are we going?"

Alex: "You're lookin' for a kid?"
George: "Yeah. His mom's in surgery and if I don't find this kid Bailey is going to change her son's middle name to Elvis or Tupperware... anything will be better than George."

George: "Really?"
03.16 Drowning on Dry LandCristina: "It's Meredith?"

Cristina: [in disbelief] "Oh... Oh."
03.16 Drowning on Dry LandAlex: "I would notice."
Addison: "What?"
Alex: "I would notice...if you were missing, I would notice."
03.16 Drowning on Dry Land[to patient] "Hey. I'm not going to be able to make it to your surgery. Here's the thing. You were crushed underneath a cement pylon. Dozens of people on that ferry boat died, but you're still alive. So when I come back to check on you after the surgery, you better still be alive. All right? You hear me? Alright."
03.17 Some Kind of Miracle"I dunno... it's just... Meredith always makes me think screwed up people have a chance."
