CRISTINA: "There you are. I've been looking everywhere for you."
PRESTON: "What is it?"
CRISTINA: "I need to find this man's leg. The chief is going to kick me out of the program if I don't. I cannot go back to Los Angeles. It's sunny there. Every. Day."
PRESTON: [smiles]
CRISTINA: "What? I need you to help me find the leg! Aren't boyfriends supposed to help in situations like this?"
PRESTON: "When we're on duty, I can't be your boyfriend."
CRISTINA: "Okay, fine. So, when we're on duty, I can have sex with someone else?"
PRESTON: [pauses] "Dr. Yang... I'm walking away now."



CRISTINA: "We're in an elevator. That's your specialty, right? McDreamy moments in the elevator?"
DEREK: "Dr. Yang-"
CRISTINA: "You know what? For just a moment, I’m not Dr. Yang and you’re not Dr. Shepherd. You’re the guy who screwed up my friend. The guy who drove her to get a dog she can't keep, the dog she only got because her boyfriend lied to her about his wife."
DEREK: "I never lied to her."
CRISTINA: "Yes you are. You know, I know a liar when I see one because I am a liar."



CRISTINA: "Get out of bed, we're gonna be late."
MEREDITH: "I have a feeling."
CRISTINA: "You have a feeling?"
MEREDITH: "Yes."
CRISTINA: "What kind of feeling?"
MEREDITH: "Like I might die."
CRISTINA: "Today? Tomorrow? In 50 years? We're all going to die eventually. Now we're late! Let's go!"
MEREDITH: "Oh Cristina, c'mon!"
CRISTINA: "What? I'm being supportive."
MEREDITH: "Really?"
CRISTINA: "Yeah, this is me being totally supportive. Go on."
MEREDITH: "Okay. The man I love has a wife and then he chooses her over me. Then the wife takes my dog. Well, she didn't actually take my dog. I gave it to her. But I didn't mean to give it to her, I meant to give it to him, and that doesn't change the fact that she's got Derek. And my McDog. She's got my McLife! What have I got? I can't even remember the last time we kissed. Because you never think the last time is the last time. You think you have forever, but you don't. Plus my conditioner decided to stop working and I think I have brittle bones. I need something to happen. I just need a sign. I need a reason to go on. I need some hope, and in the absence of hope, I need to stay in bed and feel like I might die today."
CRISTINA: [pauses, then drags Meredith out of bed] "Whatever. Everybody has problems. Get your ass out of bed and get to work. NOW! Move, move, move!"

CRISTINA: [to Justin] "I think you should decide to live. Live so you can become a doctor, and you can find a way to do heart transplants without someone having to die. Live so you can grow up and have kids and raise them not to believe in Santa. That would piss your mom off. Just decide to live. Because in your case, dying really isn't the best revenge."



CRISTINA: "What if Derek robbed a bank?"
MEREDITH: "What?"
CRISTINA: "Say Derek was robbing a bank and while he was in there, you were waiting outside because it was your job to drive the getaway car."
MEREDITH: "Why would Derek rob a bank?"
CRISTINA: "Just go with me. Please?"
MEREDITH: "Okay, Derek's robbing a bank."
CRISTINA: "And he gets caught, but no one knows you're involved, 'cause you were driving the car."
MEREDITH: "Okay, Derek's in jail and I'm in the mystery car. What's the question?"
CRISTINA: "Would you turn yourself in? Or would you stay quiet and let Derek go down for a robbery in which you were a complicit participant? Or would you stand by him?"
MEREDITH: "Well, whose idea was it to rob the bank?"
CRISTINA: "I don't know. I don't know. His. But you helped? Could you live with yourself if you just walked away and let the man you love take the fall?"
MEREDITH: "If you tell me, maybe I can help. If you tell me."
CRISTINA: "No, I'll see you- I'll see you at work."


RICHARD: Going through all the forms I noticed you didn't hand yours in.
CRISTINA: No sir.
RICHARD: I need you to. The hospital is still liable even though Dr. Burke isn't here.
CRISTINA: There my sexual relationship. Preston Burke. On paper. Satisfied?
CRISTINA: It is not difficult sir... it is simple. Burke is not here. He's gone and he's the better for it. He's winning the Harper Avery award and being celebrated all over the world. That is not difficult. He's out there and I'm here where everything is the same. I still live in his apartment, I walk the same halls of this hospital, I wear the same scrubs. It is not difficult. This is where I chose to be. But sir, when his hand was shaking, I performed the surgeries, I kept his secrets, I nursed his pride... you know it and I know it, he knows it. He knows it and yet nowhere in that newspaper article does my name appear. I am the unseen hand to his brilliance. And yet while everything is the same it is very, very different. Now I'm lucky if I get to hold a clamp. Hahn treats me like... I was his hand and now I'm a ghost. That is not difficult... it's unbearable. Everybody is proud of him... but I'm not... I do not wish him well.


MEREDITH: "I don't believe it. After all this time, and all your warnings about me sleeping with my boss, you're doing the same exact thing."
CRISTINA: "Oh, it's not the same thing."
MEREDITH: "It's the exact same!"
CRISTINA: "No, it's not. Not at all. You and McDreamy are in a relationship."
MEREDITH: "And you and Burke are in-"
CRISTINA: "Switzerland. You should go there! It's very neutral and they make very nice watches."



CRISTINA: "There you are. I've been looking everywhere for you."
PRESTON: "What is it?"
CRISTINA: "I need to find this man's leg. The chief is going to kick me out of the program if I don't. I cannot go back to Los Angeles. It's sunny there. Every. Day."
PRESTON: [smiles]
CRISTINA: "What? I need you to help me find the leg! Aren't boyfriends supposed to help in situations like this?"
PRESTON: "When we're on duty, I can't be your boyfriend."
CRISTINA: "Okay, fine. So, when we're on duty, I can have sex with someone else?"
PRESTON: [pauses] "Dr. Yang... I'm walking away now."



CRISTINA: "You know, [Burke] is acting like I committed a crime. Like my apartment is full of stolen goods. He’s acting like I kept my apartment to hide stolen goods, so I could do illegal organ transplants for money."
MEREDITH: "Are you sure he’s not just acting like you lied to him about moving in?"
CRISTINA: "What the hell's wrong with you?"
MEREDITH: "My mother's a filthy *****."


MEREDITH: "Tell me something."
CRISTINA: "What?"
MEREDITH: "Cristina. I have my hand on a bomb, I’m freaking out, and most importantly, I really have to pee. Just please tell me anything."
CRISTINA: "He told me he loved me. Last night. He thought I was sleeping, but I heard him say it."
MEREDITH: "Burke loves you."
CRISTINA: [to Dylan] "Mind your own business."
MEREDITH: "He loves you!"
CRISTINA: "Yeah. everybody has problems."
MEREDITH: "Well are you gonna say it back?"
CRISTINA: "Of course not! He didn’t say it to me, he said it to sleeping me! Reciprocity is not required. Besides, he might blow up."
MEREDITH: "Excellent point."
