Arizona Robbins was introduced in the fifth season of Grey's Anatomy as an attending surgeon and the new head of pediatric surgery at Seattle Grace.

Arizona has a "quirky" personality, and a costume designed to appeal to her young patients, including roller shoes and a Holly Hobbie pink scrub cap.

She became a love-interest for orthopedic resident Callie Torres, whose previous girlfriend Erica Hahn abruptly left the hospital in the same season.

Media reaction to the character was largely positive, despite the controversy seemingly inherent in her being one of the few lesbians on prime time TV.

Shut up. Just shut up. You don't get to tell me that we're not together. We are together. Because I love you and you love me, and none of the rest of it matters. We are together. And if you ever sleep with anyone else again, man or woman, I will kick the crap out of you. Now you sit your ass back down there because that's my baby in there. I don't want anything happening to my baby.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

I gotta go. You stay here. You are a gifted surgeon with an extraordinary mind. Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He’s very dreamy, but he’s not the sun. You are.

Cristina
