Episode Quotes
Cristina: (opening voiceover) Do you know who you are? Do you know what's happened to you? Do you want to live this way? All it takes is one person, one patient, one moment to change your life forever. It can change your perspective, colour your thinking. One moment that forces you to re-evaluate everything you think you know. Do you know who you are? Do you know what's happened to you? Do you want to live this way?

Cristina: What are we doing? What the hell are we doing?
Owen: ...I'm waiting for an elevator?
Cristina: I just spent my day saving the life of a man who's now choosing to die and all I keep thinking is you and I are throwing so much away. We should be together. You are the love of my life and it is stupid, just stupid, for us to keep pretending. I love you. I wanna be with you for real, forever, it's as simple as that.

Alex: You got a dog?
Cristina: Yes.
Alex: That thing is going to be dead in a week.
Shane: Wait, you named your dog "Mrs. Rodriguez"?
Cristina: When you meet him you'll understand.
Alex: Meet him soon before he dies.

Cristina: People who want kids don't just stop wanting them. Don't give up things for me.
Owen: Hey, I'm not. I have it, I'm not giving up anything.

Meredith: Why do you keep doing this to yourself?
Cristina: I need help. Mer, you have to help me.

Cristina: (closing voiceover) Do you know who you are? Do you know what's happened to you? Do you want to live this way?
