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)

Minister: Dearly beloved. We are gathered here today to celebrate the wedding of Alexander Michael Karev and Isobel Katherine Stevens. This is a sacred right. An ancient right. As Isobel and Alex prepare to join their lives, it is important to understand that everyone present has played a part in shaping their lives. And, will continue to play a vital role in their continuing future. And thus, we are here not only to witness their vows to each other, but to bestow upon them our blessing. And, now the couple will read their vows.
Izzie: Oh, we didn't write anything.
Alex: No, wait. I have something I wanna say. Today's the day my life begins. All my life I've been just me. Just a smart mouth kid. Today I become a man. Today I become a husband. Today I become accountable to someone other than myself. Today I become accountable to you. To our future. To all the possibilities that a marriage has to offer. Together, no matter what happens, I'll be ready. For anything. For everything. To take on life, to take on love. To take on possibility and responsibility. Today Izzie Stevens, our life together begins. And I for one can't wait.
Izzie: I love you. (kisses him)
Minister: Ahem, not yet!
Alex: Hurry up!
Minister: By the power vested in me, by god and the state of Washington, I now pronounce you husband and wife.
Izzie: Now?
Minister: Now.
(Izzie and Alex kiss)

Alex: What is this?
Izzie: Take off your pants.
Alex: Iz, it's a...
Izzie: Be my husband, get undressed, get into bed and hold me. I don't know what you're so mad about and I don't know what you're scared of because you won't talk to me. But, I'm scared too Alex. And I can't... if you won't... If we're gonna have any chance at a life together then I need you to. Please...
Alex: You died in my arms. You died in my arms! You freakin died, and then you left instructions that I wasn't allowed to save your life. You wanna know what I'm scared of? I'm scared of everything. I'm scared to move. I'm scared to breathe. I'm scared to touch you. I can't lose you. I won't survive. And that's your fault. You made me love you, you made me let you in. And then you freaking died in my arms.

IZZIE: "I'm a pretty girl."
RICHARD: "What?"
IZZIE: "I'm not being arrogant, it's just, it's just kind of a fact. For a long time I made a career from my looks, so I get it, I'm a pretty girl. And not in a 'from a certain angle' way, in an obvious way. It’s the blonde thing and the big boobs thing. Big boobs are a key to 'obvious pretty' if you know what I'm saying."
RICHARD: "Dr. Stevens-"
IZZIE: "It's how men see me. I'm not a smart girl or an interesting girl, I'm a pretty girl. The blonde and the boobs, it confuses guys into thinking I'm someone else. And I'm used to it. And I'm used to them walking away when they realize… But then Denny goes and asks me to marry him."
RICHARD: "Is that why you cut the wires?"
IZZIE: "He doesn't make me feel like I'm a pretty girl. He makes me feel like… like me. I think he might know me. And so, if I did cut the LVAT wire, and I'm not saying that I did, but if I did, then no. I don't feel guilty. I know that I should. I would if it were anybody else's. But I can't feel anything but happy."

Meredith: I'm sorry about chasing Alex.
Izzie: I forgive you.

"McDreamy's sister is McBitchy."

Cristina: Way to go dipwad, telling your wife you're figuring out how to off her.
Alex: Oh, mind your own bus... Wait... how did you know that?
Cristina: (holding back tears) She told me.
Alex: (walks into Izzie's room) You remember?
Izzie: Pillow or morphine. I got the whole thing.
Alex: Oh, I'm so sorry. I didn't mean that.
Izzie: Of course you didn't. You love me too much to shoot me up with morphine, even if you asked me to. And my stupid corked brain is coming back.
Alex: (hugging her tightly) Oh my god, I was so scared. I mean I would have loved you no matter what. You're back. You're back. (Izzie goes limp) Izz? (her heart starts to fail) Iz? Izzie? YANG!

HEATHER: "What are you all staring at? Really, if you're expecting me to be the brave and heartwarming disabled girl, that isn't going to be happen, so go ahead and do your thing."
MIRANDA: "Stevens."
IZZIE: "Heather Douglas, 17. Past medical history of VATER syndrome."
MIRANDA: "Which is?"
IZZIE: "VATER syndrome is a genetic condition that affects the vertebrae, anus, trachea, esophagus and renal system."
HEATHER: "Wow, give this girl a medal. She memorized the whole acronym, which I assure you is a hell of a lot easier than living with it."

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."

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: "Hey! It's the little woman. So what are your plans now? You're not moving in, are you?"
CALLIE: "Nice."
GEORGE: "Wait, Callie."
CALLIE: "Forget it."
GEORGE: "Unbelievable. People, you're supposed to be my friends. My closest friends. Callie is a big- She's the most important part of my life now. If you wanna drive her away, and you're masters of it, you'll do it. But if she's gone, I'm gone. She's my wife. Calliope Iphigenia Torres is my wife. Don't you dare."
IZZIE: "Okay."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.


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)
