Cristina: What happened to Hahn? Whatever made Hahn leave, it can be fixed! ... Unless she was f... she wasn't fired was she?
Callie: She's not coming back.
Cristina: You don't know that.
Mark: She kinda does.

Erica: I can't believe I didn't know this.
Callie: Erica, the Chief is right-
Erica: No. You. I don't know you. At all.

Erica: I went to the Chief about Izzie Stevens and he completely shut me down. Well, we'll see what he says when I report this to UNOS.
Callie: Wait, what? Why? What good would come of that?
Erica: What do you mean?
Callie: What possible good would that do? Would it affect your patient's outcome?
Erica: My patient wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her!
Callie: So you're going to report this to UNOS and cost this hospital its transplant certification? Cost its patients organs? Cost people their jobs? Cost Izzie Stevens her career ...

Erica: Wait, so you're taking Izzie Stevens' side in this? Over mine?
Callie: She's a doctor. She's one of our doctors. There's a reason we have each other's backs, Erica.
Erica: Please, don't talk to me about a code. Because this is not that.
Callie: No, this is that.

Callie: Look, I don't know what happened between Denny Duquette and Izzie Stevens that night, but unless you were in the middle of that situation, I don't see how you can make a judgment.
Erica: Easy. There's right, and there's wrong. And this, was wrong. And illegal. There is no gray area here. You can't kind of think this is OK. You can't kind of side with Izzie Stevens. And you can't be kind of a lesbian.
Callie: Yes, I can.

Erica: Is Yang on call tonight?
Callie: Um, yeah, why do you think it's so clean in here?
Calie: Can I just say, the whole taking it slow thing... best idea ever.
Erica: It really takes the pressure off.
Callie: Mmm... Yeah, we can just, you know, hang out without all of the...
Erica: The expectations.
Callie: Why rush things?
Erica: Exactly...
[Erica and Callie kiss]

Callie: I do not quit. I do not fail. I like to be good at things, and I wanna be good... at this. So... I need you. I need you, to show me.
Mark: Show you?
Callie: Just because you don't publish a big clinical trial doesn't mean you're not a genius.
Mark: Take off your pants.

Callie: I know, you're over it and you don't want to talk about it anymore, but...
Mark: Oh for the love of God!

Callie: What if me and Erica, what if ... what if we're a mistake... Where are you going?
Mark: I can't talk about this.
Callie: Come on, you love talking about this stuff. Girl-on-girl! It's hot!
Mark: Two girls getting nasty and loving it? That's hot. One girl talking about how much it sucked? That's depressing. Wrong! Just wrong.

It was not good. At all. I choked. I couldn't go down there. I tried, but it just felt so weird and clinical like gynie rotation.

Erica: Hey, you okay?
Callie: Bailey snagged all the surgical interns and residents, so I'm stuck with the psych interns. Not the sharpest.
Erica: You're busy. I'll be brief. I was thinking that if you're not busy tonight, we could go to my place, order in dinner, rent a movie?
Callie: Tonight? You want to get together again tonight?
Erica: I had a lot of fun last night.
Callie: Fun!

Last night, Erica and I, we, did it... sort of.

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

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
