You are a gifted surgeon, with an extraordinary mind.
We have to dance it out. That’s how we finish.
Sometimes the future changes quickly and completely, and we’re only left with the choice of what to do next. We can choose to be afraid of it, to stand there trembling not moving, assuming the worst can happen or we step forward into the unknown and assume it will be brilliant.
I’m pregnant. I know it’s sudden and it’s soon, and I know it makes your life hell.
We live in a world where [terrorism] is the first thought that crosses our minds, and I don’t think I can do it. I don’t think I can raise a child in a world where they could die going to buy new shoes.
Sandra Oh: My very final moment of shooting was with Kevin, and it was the final moment where Cristina says goodbye to Owen. It was a beautiful image of Cristina in the gallery, basically behind glass and tapping on the OR theater below. Symbolically, with that distance, it cinematically tells the story of where they are and also puts a distance that they don’t want between them. It felt right because it was tough shooting that. Both Kevin and I, when we were shooting each other’s close-ups, the other person was in the complete dark. We were both holding a flashlight up to our face so that we could actually see each other. Usually Kevin and I are about a foot away from each other, so for there to be so much space between the glass was really rich. It’s not happiness; it’s not sadness. It was very full and rich — even in the way we wanted to be closer to each other, which is exactly like how Cristina and Owen are: They just want to be closer to each other. It’s just not the time now. (x)
