Cristina and Owen are going to be hilarious.
I love how Meredith and Cristina are going to have the same reaction, but only Meredith will be able to follow through haha.

Kristen: I don't think so. I have the same problem I laugh at funerals too. But It was funerals of people that I barely knew or they wasn't my love ones. But when my grandmother died..it was totally different situation

I am so excited for next season!! I know they've used the whole "The season that changes everything" line for last season but I think it would be true for this season too...'cause they're adding new doctors as well (that's why Heigl can take a break for a movie). It's ER-like or something, I'm so excited and I'm looking forward to some MerDer action...I hope Ellen Pompeo won't be gone long.

I just had the weirdest thought. Remember in Season 2 when Izzie said that she laughs at funerals....I wonder if she would laugh at George's...Just a thought. why does it seem like it is taking SO long for the 24th to get here. I AM SO EXCITED!!!! Atleast season 5 is almost released!!

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
