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: "George, can I come in? I made you some cookies and brownies and muffins, of course. I always make muffins."
CALLIE: [runs out the door] "Thank God you're here. I can't take it anymore. Three times already tonight, and he's getting ready for a fourth."
IZZIE: "What are you talking about? Oh. Oh, ew."

GEORGE: [running from dog] "Izzie! Incoming!"
IZZIE: "So I'm thinking of coloring my hair. Maybe red."
GEORGE: [out of breath] "Yeah? Red's good. Thinking about cutting mine."
IZZIE: "Oh yeah? It'd look good shorter."

Cristina: Get a crash cart. Izzie Stevens' room.
(Cristina checks her pulse. Izzie starts laughing)
Cristina: What?
Izzie: Oh my god, I'm sorry. You should see your face right now, its... your totally freaking out face.
Cristina: You're joking? This is a joke?
Izzie: I'm sorry. I really did need you though. Um, I have all these dresses here and I keep trying to page Meredith to come try them on and she won't answer the page. So, will you tell her to come in here. She'll listen to you.

"I was upset. When I’m upset I like to nest."

Charlie, the truth is you were a bastard. You were, you were mean and stubborn and just a bastard. But you were a bastard who knew what you wanted and you stuck to your guns and you proved that if you want something badly enough, if you're determined enough and appreciative enough eventually it will happen. It will, that gives me hope so thanks for that. Good bye, Charlie.

GEORGE: "Oh yeah? How am I gonna tell her? 'Hey Olivia, how are you? Oh, by the way, I got the syph. How about you?'"
IZZIE: "Well, maybe not quite like that."
GEORGE: "No, no! It’s good advice. Really good advice, thank you very much."

MIRANDA: "Stevens. You are to-"
IZZIE: "Look and not touch or speak or breathe. I got it."
MARK: "So this is the crack team, huh?"
MIRANDA: "Feel free to take one."
MARK: "How about I take the one who doesn't touch, or speak or breathe?"
IZZIE: "Great."
ALEX: "Dammit."

PRESTON: "Dr. Stevens! You coming or going?"
IZZIE: [pauses] "I'm not sure. You?"
PRESTON: "I'm not sure either."

Izzie: Oh Alex. What do you think? Looks real right? My mom sent it to me.
Alex: Ah, what are you doing here?
Izzie: Working.
Alex: Iz, we talked about this. You're supposed to be taking another 3 weeks. Really resting up.
Izzie: I have to come back now before I don't have a job to come back to.
Alex: Iz.
Izzie: I have to show people that I'm not gonna die. Unless I sit alone in that trailer for one more minute. Then I am gonna die. I'm gonna die of boredom.
Alex: Look, Izzie.
Izzie: Seriously. Looks real right? I mean if you didn't know I have cancer, you couldn't know I have cancer. Right?

Meredith: Have you seen Burke?
Cristina: No. Have you seen Derek?
Meredith: No.
Izzie: Wait, you haven't seen either of them since the wedding?
Meredith and Cristina: Nope.
Izzie: And you're all fine?
Meredith: Yep.
Cristina: Yep.
Izzie: Wow. You're either incredible healthy or completely messed up.

IZZIE: "Alex!? God!"
ALEX: "Yeah, yeah, yeah. I've seen it all before."

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)

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.

Derek
