他和Dr. Model打招呼，Izzie则不甘示弱地以Dr. Evil Spawn回应。
他"Act like an ass whenever anyone but Izzie is around."
同样是他，"Be so offensive, yet so charming all at the same time."
这样的男人，对女孩子总是有着超人的杀伤力。他说追女孩的要诀在于"Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee."但是他却从来不会死缠烂打追着哪一个女孩子。
Repulsive and Irresistible，他就是Alex Karev。
Alex: [one on one meeting with the Chief] I went to college on a
wrestling scholarship. I played baseball, some basketball. But we'll go
Chief: What the hell does football have to do with who cut the LVAD wires?
Alex: Let's say you were drafted to a team that wasn’t your first pick. You know, you don't like the players. You hate the way they play the game. You even think the quarterback is full of crap. The quarterback's a pain in the ass you don't owe a damned thing to. But, it's your team. You don't quit. You don't talk to the press. You don't bitch to the coach. You just, you just go out there every Sunday and you make the blocks and you take the hits and you, you play to win. You show up and you suit up and you play, because it's your freaking team.
当O'mally得了Syphilis之后，周围的人都在议论他，还给他起了一个Syph-boy的外号。Alex对此评价说"It's got a nice ring to it. Kind of like Super-boy, only diseased."
在Meredith抱怨她的Fake Mother的时候，他说"You may be confused, since you were basically raised by wolves, but this is what mothers do. They stop by, they stock the fridge... Hey dude, you think she might do our laundry?"
O'mally向他讨教如此受女孩子热爱的原因是什么，他说是"Little blue pills. Lots of them."
Izzie和Callie的Cafeteria大战爆发前夕，他问"So what's it gonna be? Stevens gets her bones broken? Or Callie gets taken to the trailer park?"
Episode 1: “A Hard Day’s Night”
Thirteen Senses, "Into the Fire"
Butterfly Boucher, "Life Is Short"
Rilo Kiley, "Portions for Foxes"
Vaughan Penn, "Ready to Rise"
BANG sugar BANG, "Super Cool?
他清楚自己是怎样的一个人。"I'm not a nice guy. I don't date. I don't call the next day."
他明白自己所寻找的是什么。"I'm not looking for a relationship cause I'm never good at 'em. "
他也不会凭空许诺来博得女孩子的欢心。"The only thing you're ever going to get from me is sex... that's it.”
当Addison邀请他去她的Hotel Room的时候，他说"You're not my girlfriend, okay?"
他清楚伤害一个人的那条Line在什么地方，因此他小心翼翼，Stay away from the line。
他的一个Patient说他是Good BOY, but not a good MAN.
从Olivia到Izzie然后是Ava接着Lexie。他有Sexual Partner，但是他说"I don't have a girl friend."
Chief: [one on one meeting with Cristina] I know your type. You're a
Cristina: Yes sir?
Chief: I'm just saying, it's not going to be easy for you to be away from the OR that long.
Cristina: No sir.
Chief: And if you want to get back to the OR, you're going to tell me what I need to know, aren't you?
Cristina: You're right, it's not easy for me to be away from the OR. And it's not easy for me to sit in front of you, or any other authority figure, for that matter, and not be able to give you the exact answer that you want to hear. I'm the one with the answers. I've always been the one with the answers. But right now, sir, I don't have any.
Chief: Dr. Yang.
Cristina: How do you keep your edge sir? Because I've watched you and you've been doing this a long time, and you're clean...you're focused, you are the job, nothing gets to you. And the thing is, sir, I was like that...until I got here, until I actually started doing this job and now everything is--is fuzzy and...
Chief: That’s beside the point.
Cristina: No, see, sir, this is the point. Because I can't tell you, I can't tell you what happened in that room. And before I could have; no guilt, no loyalties, no problem. Before--before I wouldn't have even been in that room. I wouldn't have gotten involved. I would have never frozen in surgery, and I would have told him what I thought he should do. I had an edge, sir. I had an edge, and I've lost it, and I need it. I need it back. So, if you could just tell me, how you keep yours and how not to be affected, I know I could be a great surgeon. So if you could just give me the answers, I would really appreciate it.
Chief: You're excused Dr. Yang.
Chief: You're excused.
Cristina: I'll tell you, I'll tell you who cut the LVAD wires if you'll please--
Chief: No you won't, I don't want to know. Not from you. Yeah, I have the answers, but I can't tell them to you. I'm not going to be responsible for you becoming less human.

Tegan and Sara, "You Wouldn't Like Me"
小Alex因此从来没有去过公园，很少Hanging out with other guys，或许这也从片面解释了为什么他总是不能很好地和别人相处。因为他有着这样的童年。
所以在OR里他才会对Addison说，"You can get over a bad childhood. You can have the worst crap in the world happen to you. You can get over it. All you gotta do is survive."

"Let's say you were drafted to a team that wasn’t your first pick. You know, you don't like the players. You hate the way they play the game. You even think the quarterback is full of crap. The quarterback's a pain in the ass you don't owe a damn thing to. But, it's your team. You don't quit. You don't talk to the press. You don't bitch to the coach. You just... you go out there on Sunday and you make the blocks and you take the hits and you play to win. You show up and you suit up and you play, because it's your freaking team."
不过，在University of Iowa念书的时候，他却是一个摔跤手，Wrestler，而非他所说的Football Player。
Iowa Style这个词，正是起源于University of Iowa的Wrestling Team，大意就是苦难成就辉煌之类的。
于是每天早上，他都会跑步到Seattle Grace，开始新一天的Internship。"What doesn't kill you makes you stronger."
Izzie: [one on one meeting with the Chief] I'm a pretty girl.
Izzie: I'm not being arrogant, it’s just, it’s just kind of a fact. For a long time I made a career from my looks, so I get it, I'm a pretty girl. And not in a "from a certain angle" way, in an obvious way. It’s the blonde thing and the big boobs thing, big boobs are a key to obvious pretty if you know what I'm saying.
Chief: Dr. Stevens.
Izzie: It’s how men see me. I'm not a smart girl or an interesting girl, I'm a pretty girl. The blonde and the boobs it confuses guys into thinking that I'm someone else. And I'm used to it. And I'm used to them walking away when they realize… But then Denny goes and asks me to marry him.
Chief: Is that why you cut the wires?
Izzie: He doesn't make me feel like I'm a pretty girl. He makes me feel like… like me. I think he might know me. And so, if I did cut the LVAD wire, and I'm not saying that I did, but if I did, then no, I don't feel guilty. And I know that I should. And I would if it were anybody else. But I can't feel anything but happy.

George: [one on one meeting with the Chief] Aren't you gonna say anything or [pause] I'm not gonna break [pause] I'm starting to get a little freaked out, but I'm not gonna break. It’s not because I don't care, because I do care what you think about me, I do. Care. I just can't tell you want you want to hear. Which seems to be a theme in my life right now. Just because you can't say something doesn't mean you don't want to, you can want to very much. You can be with a person and be happy with them and not love them. And you can love somebody and not want to be with them. You don't need to love someone to want them. Now that's frustrating, when what your brain tells you you want and what you actually want don't match up. It’s exhausting. And, well, it’s complicated. But that's life. And life... sucks.

off] I've known you for a long time. And I know your mother and father.
And I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you did not cut those LVAD
wires. Meredith, I need you to tell me who did it.
Meredith: I've been going over this and over this in my mind trying to piece this together. It was you, you're the reason my parents broke up. And it wasn't just an affair, she really loved you. It wasn't just this cheap thing where she didn’t tell you she was married. It wasn't all a lie. She left her husband for you. But you stayed with your wife, because it was the right thing to do. Maybe safe, but she was the right person for you to be with. Let’s face it, my mother, nothing wrong with being safe, being with the good guy because he’s good and we are talking about forever here. You've never regretted your decision. You've never looked back... Right?
