Bailey: You and Derek went down in a plane, you drowned, he got shot, you gave birth in a power outage...
Meredith: Is this supposed to make me feel better?
Bailey: I'm just saying, you have every reason to be distracted. Every reason to think the sky is falling.

Amelia: Owen and I are getting to know each other.
Meredith: How well? Pants on or pants off well? Is it just sex, or is there something more?

He's different. I don't know how to explain it, but I think he realizes what makes him happy and he's choosing it. And that makes me happy. I think this is his moment.

Bailey: Grey, look I had to try.
Meredith: For your patient, I know, but now that's dozens of transplant patients that you just screwed out of a chance.

Just because we can live without something, it doesn't mean we have to.

Derek: I am calling post-it, Zola, Bailey, the tumors on the wall, ferryboat scrub caps. I thought D.C. was everything. I was wrong. You... you're everything. I love you and I'm not going to stop loving you. I can't live without you. I don't want to live without you, and I'm going to do everything in my power to prove it.
Meredith: I can live without you, but I don't want to. I don't ever want to.

Meredith: It seems like you came home because you thought you were in trouble.
Derek: I came home because we're on trouble. I came home to work on us. I came home.

There’s this thing I used to do when I was a kid to my mom’s VCR. I’d take it apart piece by piece, then put it back together again. But inevitably, there was always a piece or two left over. Something I didn’t quite know what to do with. So, what do you do with that piece? Do you try to fit it back in? Do you try to make it work? Or do you decide you can live without that missing piece?

Meredith: He's done this before.
Maggie: What?
Meredith: Moved to a new city, got a new job, ignored his wife's calls, met a girl, fell in love, started over.
Callie: Wait, what are you talking about, "met a girl"?
Meredith: Me. He met me. He left Addison when the marriage got hard, moved to Seattle, met me in a bar. What if he's doing the same thing now?

Meredith: She was perky, and she sounded happy and tall with a lot of great hair.
Alex: You saw her? How did you see her?
Meredith: I didn't. I heard her voice. Her perky, happy, tall voice.
Maggie: I hate voices like that.
Alex: You can tell by the voice?

Amelia: Damn it!
Meredith: I just got here, I haven't had a chance to screw anything up yet.

Richard: You can tell me.
Meredith: I'd rather not.
Richard: You said it was important.
Meredith: It's just sex. Emergency sex with husband.
Richard: Should have dropped it.
Meredith: Told ya.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.

Meredith

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)
