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.

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)

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."

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)

Denny: I really hope this is heaven.
Izzie: Go!
Denny: Yeah.
Izzie: What are you waiting for?!?
Denny: (kisses her) This.

(to Meredith) You make a beautiful bride.

GEORGE: "007. They're calling me 007, aren't they?"
MEREDITH: "No one's calling you 007."
GEORGE: "I was on the elevator and Murphy whispered 007."
CRISTINA: "Okay, how many times are we going to go through this, George? Five, ten? Give me a number or else I'm going to hit you."
GEORGE: "Murphy whispered 007 and everyone laughed."
IZZIE: "He wasn't talking about you."
GEORGE: "Are you sure?"
MEREDITH: "Would we lie to you?"
GEORGE: "Yes."

IZZIE: "So were there any little blue pills involved, or is he untouched by the miracle of time?"
ALEX: "Dude, that's just wrong, don't answer that."
IZZIE: "C'mon, he's not a young man. He wasn't getting a little help? Popping the pill? Dad's best friend? C'mon, you're going to give me nothing after everything we've been through? Nothing?"
CRISTINA: "It's a miracle drug. And someday it's going to save your life."

IZZIE: "You got syphilis?"
GEORGE: "I don’t know how this happened."
IZZIE: "Of course you do. God, Olivia must be really getting around!"
GEORGE: "Olivia, she’s not like that."
IZZIE: "It’s the new millennium, George. The only people who aren’t like that are the Amish... and apparently you."

IZZIE: "Mr. Sturman, and how are you feeling?"
MR. STURMAN: "Pretty okay, except I don't think I ever want to have a bowel obstruction again."
IZZIE: "Really? Wow. Because we get people in here all the time requesting them."

(to her interns) I know... I know you didn’t wake up this morning expecting this was how your first day was gonna go. You thought you’d get to re-attach an arm or observe brain surgery; instead you helped save the life of a deer. You can bitch and complain about it, or you can adjust your expectations. 'Cause like it or not, you are stuck with me and I’m the kind of doctor who lets little kids convince her she can do the impossible. Oh! Plus, when I woke up this morning, I thought today was gonna go a lot differently too. I thought I was gonna get the good interns. Instead, I get stuck with the duds! So I'll have to adjust my expectations as well.

GEORGE: [about Mer] "She's gonna be late."
IZZIE: "Maybe not."
GEORGE: "We should wait for her."
IZZIE: "Definitely not. I'm not her mother and you are not her boyfriend... [smiles] ... not yet anyways."
GEORGE: "Stop, okay, I told you I'm not interested."
IZZIE: "Life is short. George. Do you really want to die before you ask her out."
GEORGE: "I do not want to ask her out."
IZZIE: "Do you really want to die a liar?"
GEORGE: "I’m not... dying."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.

Richard

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)
