RICHARD: "So don't move here for Derek. Move for you."
ADDISON: "Excuse me?"
RICHARD: "With your practice based here, and the money I'll put into promoting you, you'll be one of the biggest names outside Manhattan."
ADDISON: "You're serious?"
RICHARD: "I'm ready to put my money where my mouth is."

PRESTON: "I don't want preferential treatment."
RICHARD: "And you're not gonna get it. You're not married, you're not hiding. You came to me. You clearly value your relationship. What you two have together, I understand that, Preston, and it does matter."

THATCHER: "I spent years looking at this board. Holding a crying baby, trying to get an idea of when my wife would get out of surgery. 'Appy,' that takes about an hour. Now anything with the word "cardio" in it, I knew not to plan on seeing her that day."
RICHARD: "Thatcher, are you aware of what's going on with Ellis?"
THATCHER: "You have no right. No right... to talk to me about Ellis."
RICHARD: "I'm sorry. I... I was trying to talk to you about Meredith. Thatcher, Ellis has Early Onset Alzheimer's. It's advanced. It's hard on Meredith as you can imagine, and I thought you'd want to know."

"I'm done! I finished. I finished first. Yes, I am Dr. Webber. That is why I am the Chief!" [sings, walks away] "That's why I'm the Chief!"

CRISTINA: "Your eyes were closed."
RICHARD: [smiles]
CRISTINA: "But... how did you..."
RICHARD: "Old school, Yang. Muscle control. When in doubt, always stick to the basics."

"You are all a bunch of arrogant surgeons."

RICHARD: [sighs] "Do you notice anything about this leg, Yang?"
CRISTINA: "Sir?"
RICHARD: "Such as the fact that it was shaved recently, and manicured? Does this look like a man who would have shaved one of his legs this morning and applied toenail polish?"
CRISTINA: [pauses] "No."
RICHARD: "Find the man's leg, Yang. Now!"

RICHARD: "O'Malley, I need you to-"
GEORGE: "Sir, with all due respect, no offense intended, but I won't cross the picket line... All due respect, no offense... 40-50 hours of mandatory overtime is extremely..."
RICHARD: [walks away]
GEORGE: "Yes sir, I'm very sorry, no offense intended sir!"

RICHARD: "We need an additional 40 nurses to relieve the whole retirement that's striking about. That's two million dollars a year we don't have."
DEREK: "Have you checked under the couch? I always find some spare change under the cushions."

RICHARD: "Bailey's back."
DEREK: "Bailey's back?"
RICHARD: "Yes."
DEREK: [Peers through the window, then turns back] "Yes she is, and her cervix is being examined by my wife, which is a visual that I will never get out of my head."

MIRANDA: "What are you people doing out here?"
RICHARD: "Are you alright? Can I get you anything?"
MIRANDA: "Hmm. Well, a boy the size of a 10-pound bowling ball is trying to work it’s way out of my body. Can you get me something for that? Can you get me a new vagina?"
RICHARD: "Uh... well..."
MIRANDA: "I didn't think so."

RICHARD: "Punching out people on my surgical floor. My head of neurosurgery is punching out people on my surgical floor."
ADDISON: "Put some ice on your hand."
DEREK: "My hand is fine."
RICHARD: "Put the damn ice on your two million dollar a year hand. Now someone tell me what the hell happened."
ADDISON: [pauses] "That was Mark."
RICHARD: "Who’s Mark?"
ADDISON: "He and Derek used to work together back in New York. And they... we... we were all close friends. Until Derek found us in bed together."
RICHARD: "Did you put your weight behind it?"
DEREK: "Yes sir."
RICHARD: [pauses] "Well, alright then."

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know.
