Main Characters in this Episode
Dr. Callie Torres: You don't see him [pause] Either of you. You don't see him. He's just... He's just George to you. He's... He's just O'Malley. Your roommate...
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: You don't have to get all up...
Dr. Callie Torres: He makes my world stop. George O'Malley is sweet and kind and smart and strong and he makes my world stop. So you shut up about him.
Dr. Callie Torres: [Turns to Meridith, who's taking out her anger on a removed plaster leg cast] Don't forget to clean it up. When you've finished smashing. [Leaves room]
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: [Turning to Meredith] Holy Crap! George is her McDreamy!
Denny Duquette: Triple word score, 69 points. Woman, I'm beating the pants off you. Pay attention, what the hell are you doing?
Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens: I'm knitting a sweater. Actually Meredith, that's my friend - the friend that broke George - is knitting a sweater. She's not really knitting a sweater because she can not knit but I want her to think she is knitting a sweater because she and I took a celibacy vow so she's replacing sex with knitting and so I'm knitting pieces of Meredith's sweater so that I can switch them out with hers so that she can really believe she's knitting because if anybody needs to be celibate, it's Meredith because she broke George.
Denny Duquette: You took a vow of celibacy?
