I dont have the quote because I havn't seen the episode yet.
But, from what you have said I am reminded of episode 7 in season 3 :"where the boys are".
At the end Meredith is talking about her relationship wound from Derek and says that the trick with wounds is to dig down and find the real source of the injury and once you've found it to try like hell to heal that sucker.
Now she appears to be saying,inconsistently, that old wounds never heal. Or maybe she has failed at healing the wound from Derek choosing Aderson etc. I really cant buy that.


At the end of "Where the Boys are" Meredith was talking about wounds as well. Talking about wounds in her relationship with Derek. I think I might revisit that episode!


Quote at the end: Forgive and forget. That's what they say. It's good advice but it's not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness old scores are never settled. Old wounds never heal. And the most we can hope for is that one day we'll be lucky enough to forget. Does anyone have the quote in the beginning??


Did anyone get tonights quote at the end? THe one Meredith said? I tried to get most of it - until the end...i missed it. If anyone has it, please post it. Thank you. Sara


omg i want so badly for merder to be happy. i want mer to say yes, i want them to be happy. i want them to live to 110 together, i want them to have really smart, funny hott children together. i want them to spend valentines day in wine country, not just having sex though. want them to talk and be happy. i want it so bad.


hey guys i'm really new to this but i thought it might be the fastest way to find out what song was playing during the scene where the chief is talking to his niece?? it was sooo beautiful and fit the scene so perfectly.


Did anyone get Derek's "I wanna marry you" monologue at the very end in quotes?? that was the hottest thing ever...


omg!!!!! the merder scene was freaking amazing!!!!!! i just wanted her to say, yes yes i love you too, marry me, lets run off together now and get it done! unfortunately, not the case but at least i think they are kind of on the same page now, at least mer can choose a direct path. Im very excited. ohhhhhh!!!!!! i was also very very happy with the izzie/alex scenes. i knew all along that he was so not over her. george is cute but seriously, its izzie and alex, they're perfect. ohh!!!! gotta say, im in a bittersweet place with callie right now. everything she said was true (esp the "izzie you betrayed your best friend" part, i never even thought of it that way) but i still didn't really like her when she called izzie a traitorous bitch. true, but it didn't make me happy. Callie deserves happiness but i don't think shes gunna find it here at SGH. Maybe she should head south to Santa Monica, tell addison to get her butt back here and work on her already great tan. its a thought. the whole "you didn't love her" scene was pretty amazing too. i kinda wanted her to punch the guy. what an @$$. seriously, the only way you're gunna move in w/ your girlfriend is if she loses 40 lbs. my gosh! @$$. I missed the episode last week so this was my first experience w/ norman. gotta say, he seems stupider than any of the other interns, past or present, but he's got a good heart. i think mark was being very very harsh with mer and norman. seriously, did he wake up on the wrong side of the hair that morning or what? basically, those two are getting the same thing izzie got when she freaking cut an lvad wire! not exactly fair. maybe im wrong but thats the way i interpreted it. I loved the christina/ lexi scenes. really took her down a notch. she'll make a good teacher once she figures out thats what shes supposed to be doing. one more thing...
Adelle. A very very selfish woman. my gosh, you want to keep your niece whose had cancer since shes fourteen alive just so you can be happy? seriously, the girl told them what she wanted. i think she should be entitiled to that and adelle shouldn't have tried to force the chief to do that. he made the right decision. but she just made me really mad. and then to say that he basically chose his career over family. WHAT???!??!??! seriously. great great great episode. i was very pleased. one of the best (actually the best) since the season two finale. old greys is back!!! im excited!!!! unfortunately im going to miss next weeks episode but its just the halloween one, i don't think im going to miss much. holy macaroni, i've written a book. sorry, but i had really strong feelings over this episode.


That was by far the best episode this season! I LOVED IT!
When Derek told Meredith that he wanted to marry her, I yelled at my tv screen, "Say YES you lucky son of a gun!!!! SAY YES!"
(sigh) Meredith frustrates me sometimes....
but it was still a FANTASTIC episode!


I think today was the best episode of Season 4 so far. It really brought us back to some of the old Grey's which was a lot better and less awkward. Hope things keep up! Btw. I'm really starting to love Callie!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.


Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
