Thank you everyone for all your repsonses and I apologize for the simplicity 
of this question. Here's some of the responses:

grep "G\.[0-9][0-9]*" filename
egrep -e 'G\.[0-9]'
grep "G\.[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]"
egrep usually has a better RE collection but:
awk '/G\.[0-9]{5} {print}'
perl -ne 'print if /G\.\d{5}/'

Thanks again everyone.
