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

by 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.

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

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.

Meredith

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)
