Grey's Anatomy: Thursdays at 9
When you're a surgical intern fighting for respect, and fighting off the advances of your patients and your boss alike, every day feels like a battle. Welcome to Meredith Grey's life in "Winning a Battle, Losing the War" the episode airing Thursday at 9 p.m.

This tension-filled hour was the third episode from the show's first season, following "A Hard Day's Night" and "The First Cut is the Deepest," which aired last week. Re-live it or watch for the first time as George's manhood is called into question, Alex spars with the female interns, and a friend of Richard fights for his life. As usual, we'll have a full list of quotes and a full recap up shortly thereafter.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
