Callie: I guess this makes us virgins, doesn't it.
Erica: I guess in a way it does!
Callie: Vir-gins. Hey, we can be scared together!
Erica: Kinda virgins. And we can be scared together.

Alex: Did she tell you that I cried? Because THAT is a lie.

Meredith: [narrating] Once upon a time, happier ever after. The stories we tell are the stuff of dreams. Fairy tales don't come true. Reality is much stormier. Much murkier. Much scarier.

Working Overtime
Richard: Am I to understand you stole these traumas from Mercy West.
Miranda: I don't know what'cha talkin' about.
Richard: Good job. 'Cause now it's personal.

Richard: With a pen!? You trach'd this guy with an ink pen?
Owen: So?
Cristina: Pen? Trach? Hot!

Izzie: See? I told you I would show you my dress.
Denny: You look better than a bride.

Cristina: I think you and Derek will make it. You will make it work.
Meredith: Are you just telling me what I wanna hear?
Cristina: I'm your person. I am on your side.

Callie: I'm not an experimenter. I don't like to experiment.
Erica: Oh.
Callie: Then you showed up and we did it together and... the experiment was kind of a success!
Erica: Oh... oh!
Callie: Look, I've never done this before. I've never kissed a girl. I'm not sure I even like kissing girls. I don't, actually, like kissing girls. I like kissing one girl. You.
Erica: I don't have anything to compare it to. You're the only woman I've ever kissed.

Meredith: If I'm going to do this, and be whole and healthy and be a warm, gooey person who lives with a boy... then I need you on board. I need you to cheer me on. Because you're the only one who knows me. Darkly. Really knows me. I need you to pretend that I can do this even if you don't believe. Because if you abandon me now, I will never make it, and I will never get my happy ending and that's just...
Cristina: Life.
Meredith: I'm saying please here.

Cristina: Mer, why do you care what I think?
Meredith: Because you're my person!

Meredith: I'm sorry about chasing Alex.
Izzie: I forgive you.

Cristina: What do you see?
Intern #1: Hmm. It kinda looks like it's hitting nothing?
Cristina: Oh, it looks like it's hitting nothing. Because it's hitting nothing!
Intern #2: What does that mean?
Cristina: What does that mean, what does that mean?! Don't you know how to read an X-ray?

Lexie: Were you in love with her?
George: I thought I was? I was scared to admit it but I did not that she, uh, did not like me that way, and... I did it anyway. I shouldn't have, because, besides just being... so selfish, to try to make her want me that way, I just ...

George: Like I said I made a lot of mistakes last year, but I'm trying to get back on track, and I gotta do it by myself, so...
Lexie: The only reason I wanted to help is that, um, I... I feel like you and I are more than just ... roommates.
George: We are more than just roommates.
Lexie: We are?
George: Yeah we're friends ... I mean right now I'd probably say you're one of my best friends.

Cristina: I... I... don't even know you.
Owen: So?

Richard: I also heard a story that you constructed an O.R. table from an exploded Humvee in the middle of the desert, is that true?
Owen: Well, you have to be innovative in the middle of the desert.
Richard: You have to be innovative everywhere. How would you like a job, Dr. Hunt?
Owen: I... appreciate the offer, but I have to go back to the sand pit. Finish my tour.

Owen: You'd be good in the field. You've got this battle scar, you'd fit right in.
Cristina: Yeah, right ...
Owen: I'm serious. You should ditch this place. Go for the adventure. You telling me this place gives you a rush? A high?
Cristina: [pauses] Yeah ...

Lexie: What if he doesn't like me back?
Mark: He's an idiot.

Mark: You're never at a loss for words with your patients. You never hesitate to tell me how you feel. So why not tell O'Malley.
Lexie: You are the last person who should be giving romantic advice.
Mark: When I like somebody I make sure they know it. Life's too short to live any other way.

Rose: I'm sorry about the hand.
Derek: These things happen.
Rose: Not to me they don't. Or they didn't, before you existed for me.

Rose: I'm carrying your child, Derek.

Miranda: Dr. Karev. What time is it?
Alex: Tomorrow. His insurance expired.

Lexie: [to patient] It happens. People make mistakes. They ... sleep with the wrong person and ... they hide it but, if you ask me, it's the part that comes after that matters. The part where you make it right. And I think you're off to a good start.

Meredith: [narrating] Reality. It's so much more interesting than living happily ever after.

Richard: The surgical training protocol is officially being changed, people. The bar has been raised. Consider yourselves on notice.

Richard: We're sloppy, just like everybody else. We've been resting on our laurels. You have all been failing. Failing to take initiative. Failing to ask tough questions. Failing to practice your skills. Failing to give opportunity TO practice skills. And I let it happen. So you have not failed. We have failed. Well, it stops, and it stops now.

Meredith: [narrating] We all remember the bed time stories of our childhood. The shoe fit Cinderella, the frog was turned into a prince, sleeping beauty was awakened with a kiss. Once upon a time and then they lived happily ever after. Fairy tales. The stuff of dreams. the problem is, fairy tales don't come true. It's the other stories. The ones that start in dark and stormy nights and end in the unspeakable. The nightmares always seem to become the reality.

Meredith: What happened!?
Cristina: A bus in front of him hit a telephone pole. He tried to swerve and miss it, but ...
Meredith: How bad is it?
Richard: Meredith -
Cristina: Meredith, you're gonna have to be strong.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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)

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.
