I have five rules. Memorize them. Rule number one, don't bother sucking up. I already hate you, that's not gonna change.
I may be forty-seven weeks pregnant. I may be on bed rest. I may not be able to see my own feet. But I AM Dr. Bailey. I hear every thing. I know every thing. Im watching each and every one of you. And I will return.

The only person that can keep a promise so big is God, and I haven't seen him pick up a scalpel lately.
I've been lying in this bed for close to a year, and I've had a lot of time to look back on my life. And the things that I remember best those are the things I wasn't supposed to do and I did them anyway. The thing is: life is too damn short to be following these rules.
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 lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines... that are way too dangerous to cross.
I just need something to happen, I need a sign that things are going to change. I need a reason to go on. I need some hope! And in the abscence of hope, I need to stay in bed a feel like I'm going to die today.
Sometimes doing something is worse than doing nothing.
I know it's not perfect, but it's life. Life is messy sometimes.
[to Addison] There is a land called Passive Agresseva, and you are their queen.
Take your chances, get cancer, and fight like hell to survive.
I get angry when I go without sleep.
You know, I know a liar when I see one because I am a liar.
