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?

So, how do you beat the odds when it’s one against a billion? You’re just outnumbered. You stand strong, keep pushing yourself against all rational limits, and never give up. But the truth of the matter is despite how hard you try and fight to stay in control, when it’s all said and done, sometimes you’re just outnumbered.

Meredith: Are you sure? There’s going to be a piñata.
Callie: Shut up.
Meredith: And pin the head on the skeleton.
Callie: Damn it. They’re so cute when they’re blindfolded.
Meredith: Bobbing for apples.
Callie: They’re even cuter when they bob.

Jo: That is a pancreatic pseudocyst. Bam!
Richard: Did you just say bam?

Jo: I need an ultrasound.
Meredith: Are you pregnant? Does Alex know?

Meredith: You make me sound like a soft drink.
Callie: Yeah, I'm reinvesting in myself.
 

I don't ease back in. I jump in the deep end. I swim.

Meredith: You pulled a sleeping baby out of daycare to do your dirty work. You're disgusting!
Derek: He's got his mother's sparkle.

I'm bulletproof.

 

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: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
