[to Nicole, teenage patient who asks him to kiss her]: "Hey, listen.

You can't cheat your first kiss. You don't want to. Trust me. When you find that right person for a first kiss, it's everything."

Alex: "You realize when I said the apocalypse before, I meant it metaphorically, not literally."

Izzie: "Alex!"
02.16 It's the End of the World
Alex: "Okay, can you tell me exactly what happened to your husband."

George: "I feel like colors are brighter than usual. Does anyone else think colors are brighter? My head hurts."
Alex: "That's the adrenaline."
Izzie: "Would you two just shut up! Nobody cares if the blue is bluer or if you have super smelling powers. Meredith could die. Any minute she could just die. Actually stop living. Dead. Corpse. "

02.21 Superstition
Izzie: "What did you say to him?"
Alex: "What are you talking about?"
Izzie: "Why does he think he's dying?"
Alex: "Maybe because he is."
Izzie: "Just so we're clear... we're over, Alex. This is over."
Alex: "What? You're breaking up with me over a corpse!"
Izzie: "No! No! I'm breaking up with you because... on your very best day, that corpse... is twice the man you will ever be. You're not good enough for me, Alex. You're not good enough for anyone."
02.21 Superstition
Alex: "O'Malley, you are a pathetic excuse for a man."
George: "Excuse me?"
Alex: "You heard me. You're like a whiny little girl.
Meredith: "Alex!"
Alex: [to Meredith] "You know why he's not speaking to you, because he's not over you."
Alex: [to George] So you got laid and it went badly. A man would move on. But you? You mope around like a dog that likes to get kicked. You make me sick. If it wouldn’t get me thrown out of the program, I'd smash your pathetic little face right into that locker."
02.22 The Name of the Game
Alex: "So this whole lying thing. That's working out for you?"
Beatrice (patient): "Excuse me?"
Alex: "Look, you're going to die and soon. You get that, right? There's no rosy picture to paint here."
Beatrice: "You're not a mother. You don't know what its like to hold your newborn baby in your arms and smell the top of her head... and know that your only job in this world is to protect her."
Alex: "You think you're protecting her?"
Beatrice: "I'm protecting her."
Alex: "Well, you call it what you want. But you should know you're leaving behind a kid that will probably hate you for the rest of her life."

02.23 Blues for Sister Someone
Meredith: "Obviously I can't go out with him, right?"
Alex: "Do I look like a chick to you? Do I look like I care about yeast cream or tingling feelings? He's not on drugs or in jail or keeping body parts in his basement. If you wanna do 'em, do 'em."
Meredith: "Not do him. Date him. I'm not doing anybody. I'm knitting."
02.24 Damage Case
Alex: "Sorry. I don't do vagina. Not as a doctor anyway."
Addison: "Oh, back talk, that buys you a case."
02.24 Damage Case
Izzie: "All I'm saying, George, is that if she needs to pee she can at least wear a bra. Or maybe wait until she's alone. And for the love of all things sanitary, could she just wash her hands? She's a surgeon!"
George: "You guys were blocking the sink. Anyways, I think you're exaggerating."
Izzie: "She peed! Naked peeing! Ask Meredith. Meredith. Oh that's right, I forgot, you're not talking to her. If you were, she'd tell you that Calli crosses the line. So crossed the line. So freaking crossed." [looks at Alex]
Alex: "Oh, we're still pretending that you're not seeing a patient, right?"
02.24 Damage Case
Addison: "Good work, Dr. Karev. The baby's going to live."
Alex: [walks away] "Yeah... without a mother."
02.25 17 Seconds
Alex: "Wow, Isobel Stevens has finally left the hospital. Does this mean her beloved heart patient finally kicked it?"

02.27 Losing My Religion
George: "Not to bother you, but-"
Miranda: "What? Alright, one of you better spit out the problem right now."
Alex: "The problem is the colors and the balloons and the Under the Sea. No, it's Titanic. Hey ,lets go with Tears in Heaven. No, that’s too morbid. It should be pink, it should be red, it should be a freaking rainbow-"
George: "What he's saying is that we're very, very hopeful that you speak teenage girl."
Miranda: "Silver and white. It's mystical and magical without being over the top. Ever seen Fashion Week in New York? Lots of silver and white runways and backdrops. That’s because no matter what color the clothes are, they pop."
High School Girls: "They pop?"
Miranda: "They pop! O'Malley and Karev, get 500 balloons in silver and white. A hundred in black, shiny black, not the matte. Yang, stick with Camille, keep her happy, keep her spirits up. Grey, talk to Patricia, make sure we can rope off the second floor nurses' station and the waiting room!"
02.27 Losing My Religion
Alex: [groaning, head in hands]
George: "Are you having a seizure?"
Alex: "Will that get me out of here? Fine then, let's go with seizure. For the love of God, you people need to get a life!"
George: "Chief's niece. Chief's niece."
Camille's Friend: "It's okay, the hot ones are always mean, it's like a rule or something."
Alex: [smiles]

02.27 Losing My Religion
[to Richard] "Let's say you were drafted to a team that wasn’t your first pick. You know, you don't like the players. You hate the way they play the game. You even think the quarterback is full of crap. The quarterback's a pain in the ass you don't owe a damn thing to. But, it's your team. You don't quit. You don't talk to the press. You don't bitch to the coach. You just... you go out there on Sunday and you make the blocks and you take the hits and you play to win. You show up and you suit up and you play, because it's your freaking team."
02.27 Losing My Religion
Alex: "Hey, you look nice."
Izzie: "Thanks, so do you. Hot date?"
Alex: "Nah, this thing is cheesy. Wouldn't waste a decent chick on it. You headed in?"
Izzie: "Yeah, I'm just gonna go see Denny first."
Alex: "Oh. Okay."
02.27 Losing My Religion
Izzie: "Can you please... please, just get out? I want to be alone with Denny."
Alex: "Izzie, that’s not Denny."
Izzie: "Shut up."
Alex: "Izz, its not Denny. The minute his heart stopped beating, he stopped being Denny. I know you love him... but he also loved you. And a guy that loves you like that, he doesn't want you to do this to yourself. Because its not Denny, Not any more."
Izzie: "An hour ago he was proposing. And now… and now hes going to the morgue. Isn't that ridiculous? Isn't it the most ridiculous piece of crap you've ever..." [starts sobbing, Alex consoles her]
