Relationship Time Line
Season 1
  • Although against the rules for interns and residents to become involved, Cristina and Burke slept together. Shortly after they ended things, Cristina discovered she was pregnant with Burke's baby. Before she even had a chance to tell him, Cristina passed out in the OR during a surgery. It was discovered that she had an etopic pregnancy so they had to abort her fetus. Burke discovered she was pregnant when he read the board and saw Cristina's name and reason for her surgery. It was Bailey who remained by her side when Cristina woke up in recovery.
  • After a brief time, Cristina and Burke resumed their relationship and even went on a first date to see if they had more in common than just sex.
Season 2
  • Burke keyed Cristina, which basically gave Cristina the green light to move in with him.
  • Burke got shot in the finale of Season 2
Season 3
  • After being shot Burke developed a tremor in his surgical hand, and to cover up the fact, Cristina became his hand, she ran his board, she would assist on all his surgeries.
  • Burke refused to speak to Cristina, after she ratted him out to the Chief.
  • Burke had to have more surgery on his shoulder to repair the nerves, Derek woke Burke up to see if he could move his fingers.
  • In the Season finale, Cristina and Burke were at the church ready to be married. Burke walked back and talked to Cristina and basically left her at the altar. He packed up (off-screen) and moved out of their apartment, leaving Cristina behind.


Quotes
  • Cristina: I specifically told you that I needed to tell Meredith first.
    Burke: I was talking to Shepard and it just...came out. It's no big deal.
    Cristina: It's a big deal. Because she's not even going to care about the fact that I'm getting married, she's going to care about the fact that I didn't tell her first.
    Burke: And why didn't you?
    Cristina: There was a major disaster.
    Burke: That was 45 minutes after we discussed it. You were with your friends running triage drills for 45 minutes and you didn't feel COMPELLED TO DISCUSS IT?
  • Burke: There is an arryhtmia when I pressed down on the tumor. That is a sign of what Yang?
    Yang: Uhm...Uhm it's a sign of uhm...It's a s...(having difficulty to breathe). It's a sign that the tumor has infiltrated the pericardium.
    Burke: Possibilities?
    Yang: Uhm...you know I'm sorry, I...
    Burke: Do your homework Yang. It could be causing a tearing in the hard muscle of the heart.
    (Cristina looks dizzy, in pain and collapses)
    Nurse: Doctor Yang!
    Burke: Cristina! Cristina!
    (Bailey and Izzie get up, look inside the OR and go to help)
    Burke: Somebody help her. Cristina! Don't just stand there somebody help her! Get in a gurney in here! Don't just stand there damn it, somebody help her! Cristina!
    Izzie: Cristina!
    Bailey: We've got it Dr. Burke we've got it!
    Burke: Ok talk to me, talk to me, what do we know? what do we know? Talk to me Stevens!
    Izzie: I don't know.
    Burke: Come on people let's move!
  • Burke: So, I have a question to ask. I checked the schedule and I noticed that you and I are both off tonight. I made reservations. I have a favorite restaurant.
    Cristina: None of those were questions.
    Burke: Would you like to go out to dinner with me tonight?
    Cristina: You know, the OR is the one place where I can come and think. I'm thinking right now, okay?
    Burke: Of course. I get it
  • Burke: Why are you in this line?
    Cristina: It's the syphilis line.
    Burke: You don't need to be in this line.
    Cristina: I don't?
    Burke: There's no one else. That surprises you?
    Cristina: Nothing surprises me.
    Burke: Do I need to be in this line?
    Cristina: No.
    Burke: Okay, then.
    Cristina: Okay.
  • Burke: Look, I'm just...What is this...that we're doing here? What is it?
    Cristina: You need a definition? You... really want to be that guy?
    Burke: Lock the door.
  • Burke: Dr. Yang, you're handling the saw.
    Cristina: Thank you, Dr. Burke. (whispers) You won't let me pick the wine, but this you'll let me do?
  • Burke: So in the name of the new year...
    Cristina: Oh, I don't do resolutions.
    Burke: In the name of the New Year I thought you could give me an answer to my question.
    Cristina: Your question?
    Burke: About you ... moving in.
    Cristina (sighs): I don't have an answer.
    Burke: Cristina.
    Cristina: I’m not being Cristina. I just ... I don’t have an answer.
    Burke: Then answer me this. What were you planning to do?
    Cristina: About what?
    Burke: The baby. (the scrub nurse interrupts them, Cristina leaves and Burke looks upset)
  • (Cristina walks in naked into the kitchen. George looks up and immediately covers his eyes with his hands. Burke looks too and is shocked)
    Burke: Cristina, what the hell are you doing?!
    Cristina: Oh, uh being comfortable in my apartment.
    (Burke looks at George who still has his eyes closed)
    George: I didn’t see anything. I did not see anything.
    Burke: Get out.
    (George scrambles up fast to leave but ends up falling onto the floor. Cristina smiles walking back into her room)
    Cristina: Basics.
    (George runs out the door, Burke gives Cristina a look)
  • Cristina: She’s with Alex. I can’t do this in front of Alex.
    Burke: Well, you can and you will.
    Cristina: Uh, excuse me, why aren't you apologizing?
    Burke: I’m, I’m an attending. I don’t apologize to residents. You on the other hand are an intern.
    Cristina (walks up to Sydney): Sydney I just wanted to ... (she glances briefly at Alex who looks very smug and straining to hear what she has to say)(very quietly) apologize for you know overstepping, I’m sorry.
    Sydney: Now that’s the compassion I was looking for. Apology accepted. Okay, you wanna hug it out? (she holds out her arms)
    Cristina: Oh.
    Alex: Go. Go hug
