Cordano Romance Hints from TPTB!
Yeah, so what if most of these are one-sided?  Things will change!
Romano: Lizzie, you and I are a match made in heaven.
Romano: Hey, who's looking out for ya?
Romano: Not a very good picture of you, though.
Elizabeth: Well, we can't all have your devastating good looks, now can we?
Romano: Let me make something clear.  I'm your biggest fan.  If I didn't think you showed great potential, I never would have sponsored you in the first place.
Elizabeth: So you're concerned for my soul.
Romano: Among other things...
Romano (to Weasel): Stop picking on her!
Romano: You are either a masochist or the stubbornist woman I've ever met, but I admire your fortitude.
Romano (wrt the newspaper reporter): Well, because you're gonna show him around, show him what heroes we all are, how we save kiddies lives, et cetera -- you know, blow my trumpet, Lizzie.
Romano: Look at you, look at me.  Who would you rather spend an hour with?
Elizabeth: Choledochojejunostomy?
Romano: Well, you can say it. Do you want to do it?
Elizabeth: I don't 'view you as a loathsome toad', Robert.
Romano: I can't tell you how happy I am to hear that, Elizabeth.
Elizabeth:  Oh, you know Robert. He always has to be dramatic.
Romano:  Welcome to the big leagues!
(Elizabeth asks for permission for PeeTah to operate on his trauma patients)
Romano: For you, Lizzie?  Anything.
Romano: Uh, Lizzie, how much would you pay for my sperm? 
Elizabeth: I beg your pardon?
Romano: Oh, was that sexual harrassment? Oh, oh my...No, I'm being recruited by the Marshall-Hillberg sperm bank; its donors include Olympic athletes and Nobel Prize winners. It's an elite gene pool.
Elizabeth: And they want you?
Romano: Yeah, it's a little embarrassing, actually. But it's for a good cause. I mean, who knows what the mother's side is going to bring to the party, but as for my side of the genetic divide, I can guarantee a significant advantage over the rest of the spermic competition. Can't have too many extra Romanos running around, spicing up the gene pool, can we?
Romano: Lizzie!  My how you've grown! (When she was pregnant)
Romano: I was going to offer to assist after my AV shunt, but not if youre going to go prenatal on me.

Romano: Do you really think you need it? (When Elizabeth is pregnant and she tells Romano he could order pizza and ice cream for her...the snacks are delivered at the end of the episode)

Romano: Here's our little action hero!

Romano: Dont forget to tell Larry King you only fly first class.
Romano: Trying to raise the dead, Lizzie? Go directly to the morgue, do not pass go, do not collect $200!
Romano: So what'll it be, Mother Goose or Bambi?

Romano: I couldn't do it, work with family.
Elizabeth: Robert, you can't work with anyone.

Romano: He's a big boy.
Elizabeth: It was mean.
Romano: Oh, he was mean to me first!
Elizabeth: There's so much we don't know about you, Robert!
(Elizabeth is crying in the lounge) Romano: What's wrong, is Prince Harry in rehab again?
Romano: I know Weaver's been forming alliances with some of the tribal elders while I was recuperating, but I would've expected a little more loyalty from you, Lizzie.
Nathan: Excuse me, I'm looking for Dr. Corday.
Romano: Yeah, aren't we all.  You a bill collector or suitor?
Nathan: Med student.
Romano: You must be a slow learner.
Romano:  I thought you left, Lizzie.
Elizabeth: Me too.  I'm supposed to be trick-or-treating.
Romano: Little old for that, don't you think?
Romano: Lizzie, if you've got this, I'm gonna go check on the rest of the kids.
Romano: Lizzie, get your [butt] in here!
Elizabeth: I've lost my wedding ring.
Romano: Oh, boo hoo!  This guy's about to lose a leg!  I'd say 'chop chop' but that would be in extremely bad taste!
Elizabeth: Why are you still here?
Romano: Uh, my piano recital was cancelled.
Romano: Oh, please - spare me the two-dollar psychoanalysis, Lizzie.
Romano:  Your med student, the martini shaker, he camped out in my office and says that you refuse to put him on call.
Elizabeth: He has Parkinson's disease.
Romano: Yeeeaah.  Hence the martini shaker reference.  C'mon, Lizzie, work with me.
Elizabeth: It's bad enough he has to see patients.
Romano: Oh, I get it.
Elizabeth: What?
Romano: You have something against doctors with disabilities.
Elizabeth: Only on a case by case basis.
Romano: Lizzie!  ... I heard rumors...
Elizabeth: All true, I'm afraid.
Romano (sighs): The one face I missed seeing in recovery.
Elizabeth: I'm so sorry, Robert.
Romano: What, about my arm...or about not being there?
Elizabeth: (pause) How are you healing?
Romano: It hurts [really bad].  (pause) You?
Romano: Have you given any more thought to that impressive offer you got?
Romano: Now I'm well aware you don't relish working with me.  I mean, your face I can't resist, but know this:  I would do anything in my power to have you stay in surgery.  Including making myself as scarce as possible.
(as their picture is taken in the OR)
Romano: This one's for the coffee table!
Elizabeth: I don't care for the hairy ones.
Romano: So it's true!  You're all suckers for the accent!
Romano:  Do you believe in the laws of karma, Elizabeth?

Romano Quotes
