19 Most Epic Grey's Anatomy Episodes: From the Pilot to the Present

at . Comments

Grey's Anatomy has been a staple of our television lives for almost a decade at TV Fanatic.

Ever since its debut in the spring of 2005, Meredith Grey, Derek Shepherd and a strong cast of supporting players have occupied a special place in our hearts.

We've been through compelling cases galore, along with ups, downs, chills and thrills; shocking breakups, makeups and hookups; deaths, births and the occasional ghost visit.

Hey ... if you can bring Jeffrey Dean Morgan back, you gotta do it, by any means necessary.

Times change, cast members have come and gone, and things may not be what they once were, but even in its present form, Shonda Rhimes' creation still tugs at the heartstrings.

Here, we have picked out what we believe are the 19 most emotional, OMG-worthy and otherwise notable installments of the long-running ABC medical drama.

Scroll through and remember the most epic installments below:

I couldn't agree more on "Into You like A train" being the best episode ever of Grey's Anatomy! Given there are so many to chose from, I would definitely have picked it! I would say Golden Hour was also a really good episode showing how Meredith changed as a person and a doctor through the years. Another one really close to my heart is The Becoming from season 4 with the song "Know When To Walk Away" playing.

What about deterioration of the fight or flight response/losing my religion???
The season 2 finale was AMAZING.
Still goes down in the books as one of the best episodes of Grey's.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

Richard: Chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight, Stevens. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.
