Meredith: My dad's dead. At first I thought he was drunk, then he started puking blood. And, puking blood and disorientation usually means...
Derek: End stage liver failure.
Meredith: Which mean's he's probably dead by now. Or he needs a transplant, and I hope he's not a candidate. Because that means he'd be in the hospital for months.
Alex: Uh, Mer.
Meredith: He needs a transplant doesn't he?
Alex: Yeah.

Alex: We could move back to Meredith's.
Izzie: You did not just say that!
Alex: Why not?
Izzie: Because, we're married now. This is how it's supposed to be. You and me, out in the world, making a life for ourselves. Besides, don't you just enjoy waking up to the fresh air and the sounds of birds chirping.
Alex: You know what I enjoy? I enjoy plumbing! I enjoy plumbing so much!
Izzie: It's not that I don't love it at Mer's. I do. It's just, I just, I can't move backwards, Alex. Not after everything that's... I just need to keep moving forward. Ok?

Izzie: Are you sure it was a bear and not a deer? There's a lot of deer in those woods. Bucks can get pretty big.
Alex: I think I know the difference between a bear and a deer.
Izzie: (to patient) Rest, ice and elevate. Ok?
Alex: You know... You know how I got the the car? I had to throw a raw steak and run for my life!
Izzie: That was a 10 ounce fillet, I'd been marinating it for 3 days.
Alex: We have to move!

Izzie: I forgot he was dead today. For a few hours in surgery, I forgot I had cancer and I forgot he was dead.
Alex: But, George is dead. And you do have cancer. I want you to keep doing what you love. You're a great doctor, and you have a fantastic future ahead of you. But, you've gotta step up and start taking care of yourself. You've gotta take your meds, you've gotta eat. You've gotta pace yourself, 'cause I can't be your nurse. I can't.

Alex: What's going on. You paged us.
Meredith: Check your email.
Izzie: For what?
Meredith: HR. If you got cut, you'll have an email. I didn't get one, but... I've been calm through this crisis. I have been calm. But, if one of us gets cut I will not be calm!
Cristina: No email.
Alex: I'm fine.
Izzie: I'm good too.
Meredith: Good. See, I knew it! I knew it! I knew none of us would get cut.
Cristina: Yet. There's gonna be another round.

Izzie: I hate you.
Alex: Shut up.
Izzie: (takes her meds) Ok. Good. Thank you.
Alex: Shut up. Get back to work.

Izzie: Thank you.
Derek: A little more suction.
(Alex knocks on window)
Alex: It's 2 o'clock Izzie!
Izzie: Oh my god.
Derek: Stevens no more fighting in my OR. Go deal with this.

Alex: I need to speak with Dr. Stevens please.
Izzie: Alex, I'm in surgery.
Alex: izzie.
Izzie: Alex, leave. Dr Shepherd, could you please tell Dr Karev to leave.
Derek: Karev.
Alex: She gets tired walking to the mail box. She can't handle another 5 hour surgery.
Izzie: I know what I can handle.
Alex: No one's gonna think any less of you if you walk out of her now. Just walk out now.
Derek: Steven's have this conversation outside.
Izzie: No, I'm not leaving. Alex!

Alex: Shepherd's shunt went bad?
Lexie: Yeah, they had to convert to an open craniotomy. Something I'll probably never get the chance to do.
Alex: She can't handle a craniotomy.
Lexie: See even he sees it.
Meredith: No, he's not talking about you. He's talking about Izzie.
Lexie: (to Cristina) I really admire you. In case I get cut, and don't get a chance to tell you. Plus, you're really pretty.
Cristina: You can have the rest.
Lexie: (to Mer) And you and I, we were getting so close.

Meredith: Nice pin.
Cristina: His name's Mr Bear. He eats children.
Meredith: Not having fun in peds?
Cristina: Well, my kid wants chocolate pudding really badly. This is the last one.
Alex: My triple A got canceled. You guys got any surgeries I can get in on?
Meredith: Well, I'm on post op's, and she's baby sitting.
Cristina: No, I can't stand it any longer. Can't you go to the Chief and use your dead mommy connections to get some answers?
Meredith: We don't need dead mommy. We are going to be fine.
Lexie: Ok, so I let a crazy man escape and he fell down a flight of stairs.
Alex: Is it surgical?

Izzie: You can't do this. You can't treat me like I'm sick. My patients need to have faith in me. What are you doing?
Alex: Your wig, it was crooked.
Izzie: Ow!
Alex: Look, I'll stop hovering if you stop acting like an idiot. Your next pill's at 2 o'clock. You can't take it on an empty stomach.
Izzie: Ok.

Izzie: Ok, Mr Trinidad you shunt revision is pretty simple. It shouldn't take longer than an hour. But, I do need to go over the possible complications with you.
Alex: Dr Steven's, can I have a word.
Izzie: Ah, if you could just give me a minute here till I'm done Dr Karev.
Alex: I'm sorry, this will only take a minute.
Izzie: Excuse me.... What?
Alex: How are you holding up?
Izzie: Fine.
Alex: Did you take your meds this morning?
Izzie: Not yet but I will.
Alex: You're supposed to take them at 9.
Izzie: it's only a little after 9.
Alex: It's 10:15. Run down to her locker and get her meds. Are they in your purse?
Izzie: Yes, but you don't have to get them.
Alex: Yes you do.
Izzie: No you don't. Alex.
Alex: I swear to god if you don't go and get her pills right now, I'm gonna hurt you, and I'm gonna like it.

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.
