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.

Izzie: You never know the biggest day of your life is the biggest day. Not until it's happening. You don't recognize the biggest day of your life, not until you're right in the middle of it. The day you commit to something or someone. The day you get your heart broken. The day you meet your soul mate. The day you realize there's not enough time, because you wanna live forever. Those are the biggest days. The perfect days. You know?
Denny: I bet you ... you made a beautiful bride.
Izzie: It was a beautiful day.
Alex: You put the scarf on. I told you, you don't need it. You look gorgeous without it.
Denny: He's right.
Izzie: Go away now. Go away, I wanna be alone with my husband.
Alex: (Takes off her scarf, and kisses her forehead) My wife is hot!
(Izzie giggles and smiles)

You can't blame yourself. Some people are just broken. I guess you just try not to care too much and you can't be disappointed.

Izzie

IZZIE: "Here."
DENNY: "You knit me a sweater?"
IZZIE: "Smell it."
DENNY: [breathes deeply, smiles] "Smells like Izzie."
IZZIE: "I wore it for three hours. You know, to give it the full effect. So enjoy, because that's the closest to this body that you will ever get."
DENNY: [pauses] "Can I at least see one boob?"

"When Derek broke up with you, nobody told you were better off without him. It's not supportive, it's condescending. I was there for you, and the one time I need you? Just go away, Meredith."

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

Give me back my surgery or I'll shoot your ass off!

Izzie

Now I know charting doesn't seem as exciting as surgery, but it is as important. Believe me when I tell you, penmanship saves lives! Is that a 7, or is that a 9? If I have to ask myself that in the middle of an emergency, your patient is dead. You killed him. With your handwriting. Think about that!

MEREDITH: "Poor Marshall. I mean, one minute you're a surgeon and the next, you destroyed an entire family."
IZZIE: "Last month I fell asleep in a parking lot, on a bench. I literally couldn't even make it to the car."
MEREDITH: "I fell asleep in a restaurant, at a table while I was on a date."
CRISTINA: "I fell asleep during sex."
GEORGE: [enters room, looks at Izzie] "Calli is looking for you... you could have told her you were busy-"
IZZIE: "Oh, please don't talk to me about standards. The girl couldn't even wash her hands!" [laughs]
CRISTINA: [to Meredith] "Don't worry about Bambi. If Burke can forgive me for falling asleep during sex, Bambi can forgive you for crying."
MEREDITH: "But Burke hasn't forgiven you."

IZZIE: [to Richard] "I cut the LVAT wire."
MEREDITH: "Actually, I cut the LVAT wire."
GEORGE: "No, I did. I'm the one who cut the wire." [pauses, elbows Christina]
CRISTINA: "Fine, I cut the LVAT wire."
ALEX: "I didn't do anything, I'm totally innocent."

ALEX: "Does it hurt?"
IZZIE: "Yeah."
ALEX: "Where does it hurt?"
IZZIE: "Everywhere..."
ALEX: "Maybe it hurts for a reason."

IZZIE: "What's going on, is it something bad?"
ADDISON: "Yeah, it's something bad."

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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
