Tell them Cristina Yang deserved that award not Dr. Nobody Sucks A Lot from Hopkins. Tell them in short sentences because they are boneheads.

She told me she didn't win the Harper Avery award. She earned it.

Meredith: I’m taking my son with me because I don’t want his first word to be hypothalamus.
Derek: There are worst first words.

What if there’s a mutiny? Derek and I will lose.

Cristina: She's hot, right?
Meredith: Have you give up on men?

Place mats are overrated.

Meredith: I have wine.
Cristina: I'll be there.

Looking back, it's easy to see when a mistake has been made... to regret a choice that seemed like a decent idea at the time, but if we used our best judgment and listened to our hearts, we are more likely to see that we chose wisely and avoided the deepest most pain regret of them all - the regret from letting something amazing pass you by.

We’ll try again and we’ll fail again because that’s what progress looks like. Progress looks like a bunch of failures. And you’re going to have feelings about that because it’s sad, but you cannot fall apart. And then one day, we will succeed and save a person’s life and we will walk on the moon.

It's just a cold. Muscle through it. It'll pass. Nothing's really wrong. We're doctors. We'd know if something was wrong. We'll be fine. Nothing's wrong.

Alex: you know you were an intern balling an attending once.
Meredith: You kiss my kids with that mouth?

Richard: Are you cooking?
Meredith: Is that so preposterous?
Richard: Do you want a straight answer?

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)

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.
