"I'm out of my element here. I break bones for a living, I used to live in the basement, most days I wear last night's eyeliner to work, and I don't give a crap about what other people think of me. Because I'm a happily independent and successful woman and I like it that way, only when you say stuff like this, it just makes things too hard. So please, don't chase me anymore, unless you're ready to catch me."

CALLIE: "Did you just call me a pig?"
GEORGE: "No, not anymore. Now I am the pig. I'm the pig. I am the pig."

MARK: "Is that your boyfriend again?"
CALLIE: "I do not have a boyfriend."
MARK: "Then why the guilty face?"
CALLIE: "You were sexier when you weren't talking."

CALLIE: "I slept with another guy, do I tell George?"
MEREDITH: "I broke up with Finn, do I tell Derek? I can't tell Derek."
CALLIE: "I have to tell George."

MARK: "Can I buy you a drink, Dr. Torres?"
CALLIE: [gets up] "Not unless you have it delivered to my hotel room... I'm going to bed. You coming?"

"It’s always Meredith and Izzie. Never me. Who am I to you. George? Am I your girlfriend? Am I somebody to mess around with? Do you even know? Well, guess what. Now you don’t have to bother figuring it out."

GEORGE: "I'm not ready to move in together!"
CALLIE: "Well, if you weren't such a toddler and used your words, then I would say 'Oh, that's funny, me neither. I'm looking for a place, I'll be out in a week.'"

RICHARD: "I respect it. I really do. But I can't allow it. Violates all sorts of codes and you know it."
CALLIE: "So you're kicking me out, but you're allowed to live in your office?"
RICHARD: [pauses] "You noticed that, huh."
CALLIE: "I'm pretty observant."
RICHARD: "Well, guess if I'm throwing you out I better follow my own rules."

MEREDITH: "I'll tell him."
CALLIE: "What?"
MEREDITH: "About the panties!"
CALLIE: "No. Are you kidding? He's jealous!"

[to Meredith] "You guys should think about... maybe getting a hotel room or something."

CALLIE: "Relax. I'm not gonna bring it up, you and McDreamy and the sex. I'm not that person."
MEREDITH: "Thank you."

Four years of high school, four years of college, four years of med school. By the time we graduate we're in our late 20s and we've never done anything except go to school and think about science. Time stops. We're socially retarded. Ha, I mean, look at me, I'm in love with a guy who won't say he loves me back and here I am, in his kitchen, just hoping he comes home and notices me. I'm that girl, who sits in the back of the class and eats her hair. And Meredith, she's 17 years old, we're all 17 years old. This is high school with scalpels, Finn.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

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.
