Greys-anatomy

IZZIE: "I'm sorry, I ran out of sterile drapes. I had to use some guys t-shirt. He wasn't sweaty or anything, he was a clean guy, but..."
RICHARD: "Okay, call the OR tell them we're comin' up."
IZZIE: "I also dropped a scalpel in the field and by that time I had used all the alcohol swabs on the drill bits so... I think we should load him up on antibiotics. Lots and lots of antibotics."
RICHARD: "Stevens, you put a drill through a man's skull and didn't hit his brain. You saved his life. Get cleaned up and get to the OR, you've got work to do."
IZZIE: "The OR?"
RICHARD: "Yes, the OR. You're officially off of probation."

RICHARD: "What’s the news?"
MARK: "Shepherd and Grey are on the rocks, Burke and Yang got engaged... You need highlights. In your hair, that’s why it looks so odd."
RICHARD: [stares blankly]
MARK: [smiles] "I’m gonna go save lives!"

RICHARD: "Men who... have gray hair are noticed less than men who... don't."
DEREK: "By who?"
RICHARD: "Well..."
PRESTON: "By the ladies?"
MARK: [coughs trying not to laugh]
DEREK: "Looks good Chief."
RICHARD: "Very natural."

MEREDITH: "The reason that I want you to have the surgery is because I have this hope, that in a year, two years or five, they're gonna have a breakthrough. They're gonna find a cure for Alzhiemer's, and you and I will have another chance. To get to know each other. You'll get a chance to know me, to see that I am not even remotely ordinary, so I wish you would have the surgery. But it's up to you Mom, it's your life."
ELLIS: "You remind me of my daughter."
RICHARD: "About an hour ago. One minute she was here, the next- I'm so sorry."
MEREDITH: "Me too."

MIRANDA: "You didn't think of maybe telling me this morning that you were planning to step down instead of sending me on this wild goose chase?"
RICHARD: "Dr. Bailey. You need those clowns to sign off on your proposal because one of them may be Chief of Surgery in a month. It's hard to imagine, for me more than anyone, but since you're not ready for the job, one of them has got to do it for the next few years."
MIRANDA: "Me?!"
RICHARD: "It's you that's going to be Chief eventually. That's who you are. But you're gonna have to get a new chair because you're too short. You have short legs. But someday you are going to be Chief of Surgery. I wasn't sending you on a wild goose chase. I was trying to get you in a habit of doing things without me."

RICHARD: "Dr. Bailey?"
MIRANDA: "My son was named after his son. I just need a moment."

GEORGE: "Why did you do the surgery once you saw that the cancer had spread?"
MIRANDA: "George."
GEORGE: "He asked you. He asked you to do it no matter what?"
RICHARD: "We have to respect our patients' wishes."
GEORGE: [to Miranda] "You said you would be straight with me. He could have lived for weeks. Months. We could have had months with him. My mom, she could have had months with him!"
RICHARD: "He wanted to fight the cancer, George."
GEORGE: "He didn't know better! You knew better! You shouldn't have done it. You shouldn't have done it."

RICHARD: "Why are you researching neurosurgeons when you and I both know that Derek's better than anybody?"
PRESTON: "I don't want Shepherd."
RICHARD: "You blame this on him? Up until now, I have not yelled. I have not yelled because you are a guy in trouble and I was supporting you. But now I am yelling!"
PRESTON: "Chief-"
RICHARD: "I am yelling very loudly! I wanna retire, Burke! I want my wife back and I passed the torch to you! I passed the torch to you and you blew it out!"
PRESTON: "I know I let you down."
RICHARD: "Burke, I'm tired. I'm tired of you men acting like boys. You let me down and if you don't let Derek fix that hand, you're letting yourself down."

RICHARD: "I've been visiting Ellis Grey. I work, I visit Ellis, that's my day. I make time for Ellis, I don't make time for Adele. Stop... helping me! Look, I miss my wife. I want her back. I don't want my marriage to be over.
ADDISON: "Richard, your marriage isn't over until you decide it is. Until you decide that the sacrifice just isn't worth it."
