MEREDITH: I... I slept with George. I slept with him and it was a horrible mistake. Now everything has changed and I don’t know how to repair it. I don’t even know where to start, but I just know that I have to and..."
DEREK: [pauses] You tell him that. You find George and you apologize.
MEREDITH: "That’s what everyone’s saying but he wont listen."
DEREK: "You tell him you’re sorry. Just tell him again and again and again until he listens."
MEREDITH: "How do I make him?
DEREK: "Do what I do... use the elevator."

[narrating] "Pain. You just have to ride it out. You can only hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers, you just breath deep and wait for it to subside."

IZZIE: [to Meredith, about Addison] "Well, if it makes you feel any better, I take issue with the salmon scrubs. I mean what self-respecting surgeon wears salmon-colored scrubs?"
MEREDITH: [smiles] "This is what I'm saying."

[narrating] "Nobody likes to lose control, but as a surgeon there's nothing worse. It's a sign of weakness, of not being up to the task. Still there are times when it just gets away from you, when the world stops spinning, when you realize your shiny little scalpel isn't gonna save you. No matter how hard you fight it, you fall. It's scary as hell. Except there's an upside to the free fall. It's the chance you give your friends to catch you."

MEREDITH: "So that's it? Was that what I was to you? The girl you screwed to get over being screwed?"
DEREK: "You were like coming up for fresh air. It's like I was drowning and you saved me. That's all I know."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "That's not good enough."

"Denial is not just a river in Egypt. It's a freakin' ocean."

[narrating] "I wish there were a rulebook for intimacy. Some kind of guide to tell you when you've crossed the line. It would be nice if you could see it coming, and I don't know how you fit it on a map. You take it where you can get it, and keep it as long as you can. As for rules, maybe there are none. Maybe the rules of intimacy are something we have to define for ourselves."

MEREDITH: [talking about her new roommates] "They're just... everywhere, all the time. Izzie's all perky and George does the thing where he's helpful and considerate. They share food, they say things, they move things, and they breathe. They're, like, happy."
CRISTINA: "Kick 'em out."
MEREDITH: "I can't kick them out, they just moved in. I asked them to move in."
CRISTINA: "Okay, so what, you're just going to repress everything in some deep, dark, twisted place until one day you snap and you kill them?"
MEREDITH: "Yep."
CRISTINA: "This is why we are friends."

"I guess we're adults. The question is, when did that happen, and how do we make it stop?"

MEREDITH: [to Derek] "Stop looking at me like that, like you've seen me naked."
DEREK: [smiles]

MEREDITH: "I don't believe it. After all this time, and all your warnings about me sleeping with my boss, you're doing the same exact thing."
CRISTINA: "Oh, it's not the same thing."
MEREDITH: "It's the exact same!"
CRISTINA: "No, it's not. Not at all. You and McDreamy are in a relationship."
MEREDITH: "And you and Burke are in-"
CRISTINA: "Switzerland. You should go there! It's very neutral and they make very nice watches."

DEREK: "Meredith, I am so sorry. Addison. What are you doing here?"
ADDISON: "Well you'd know if you'd bothered to return any one of my phone calls."
MEREDITH: [confused]
ADDISON: "Hi, I'm Addison Shepherd."
MEREDITH: "Shepherd?"
ADDISON: "And you must be the woman who's been screwing my husband."
MEREDITH: [silence]

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)

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.

Meredith
