GEORGE: "Why is he suturing his own face?"
CRISTINA: "To turn me on..."
ALEX: "Because he's Mark Sloan. The guy is like the go-to plastic surgeon on the east coast."
GEORGE: "That’s the guy Addison was sleeping with."
IZZIE: "Can you really blame her?"
CRISTINA: "No, not really."
GEORGE: "Yes, you can."
MEREDITH: "Well McSexy wants an X-ray to check for fractures and I think it’s a bad idea if I go with him."
GEORGE: "Why?"
ALEX: "I'm on it."
GEORGE: "Why is that a bad idea?"
MEREDITH: "That's not right."
IZZIE: "McYummy?"
CRISTINA: "Mmm... no."
MEREDITH: "McSteamy."
CRISTINA: "There it is!"
IZZIE: "Yup."
GEORGE: "Allow me to choke back some McVomit."

PATIENT: "I was struck by lightning."
MEREDITH: "You mean you fell out of a tree that was hit by lightning."
PATIENT: "Same difference."
MIRANDA: "Actually, medically, it's not the same difference. And it would be helpful if, from now on, you told us the whole truth!"

[narrating] "Superstition lies in the space between what we can control and what we can't. Find a penny, pick it up, all day long you'll have good luck. No one wants to pass up a chance for good luck. But does saying it 33 times really help? Is anyone actually listening? Why do we bother doing those strange things? We rely on superstitions because we're smart enough to know we don't have all the answers.. and that life works in mysterious ways. Don't diss the juju, from wherever it comes."

[narrating] "My college campus has a magic statue. It’s a tradition for students to rub its nose for good luck. My freshman roommate really believed in it and insisted on rubbing its nose before every exam. Studying might have been a better idea. She flunked out her sophomore year. But we all have little superstitious things that we do. If it's not believing in magic statues, it's avoiding sidewalk cracks or always putting our left shoe on first. Knock on wood. Step on a crack, break your mother's back. The last thing we want to do is offend the gods."

MEREDITH: "George is still ignoring me."
CRISTINA: "Just ignore him back."
MEREDITH: "Derek says I should apologize until he listens."
CRISTINA: "Derek says?"
MEREDITH: "It's good advice. He's my friend. That’s good friend advice."

ALEX: "O'Malley, you are a pathetic excuse for a man."
GEORGE: "Excuse me?"
ALEX: "You heard me. You're like a whiny little girl.
ALEX: [to Meredith] "You know why he's not speaking to you, because he's not over you."
ALEX: [to George] So you got laid and it went badly. A man would move on. But you? You mope around like a dog that likes to get kicked. You make me sick. If it wouldn’t get me thrown out of the program, I'd smash your pathetic little face right into that locker."

DEREK: "Seattle has ferryboats?"
DEREK: "I didn’t know that. I've been living here six weeks, and had no idea there were ferryboats."
MEREDITH: "Seattle is surrounded by water on three sides."
DEREK: "Hence the ferryboats. Now I have to like it here. I wasn’t planning on liking it here, since I'm from New York, and am genetically engineered to dislike everywhere except Manhattan. But I do have a thing for ferryboats."
MEREDITH: "I'm not going out with you."
DEREK: "Did I ask if you'll go with me? Do you want to go out with me?"
MEREDITH: "I'm not dating you and I'm definitely not sleeping with you again. You're my boss."
DEREK: "No, I'm your boss' boss."
MEREDITH: "You're my teacher and my teacher's teacher. And my teacher!"
DEREK: "I'm your sister. I'm your daughter."
MEREDITH: "You're sexually harassing me."
DEREK: "I'm just riding in an elevator."
MEREDITH: "Look, I'm drawing a line. The line is drawn. Thereis now a big line."
DEREK: "So this line... is it imaginary or do I need to get you a marker?"

[narrating] "The game. They say a person either has what it takes to play, or they don’t."

CRISTINA: "You know, [Burke] is acting like I committed a crime. Like my apartment is full of stolen goods. He’s acting like I kept my apartment to hide stolen goods, so I could do illegal organ transplants for money."
MEREDITH: "Are you sure he’s not just acting like you lied to him about moving in?"
CRISTINA: "What the hell's wrong with you?"
MEREDITH: "My mother's a filthy whore."

MARK: [walks into the bar] "Is this seat taken?"
MEREDITH: [pauses] "I guess not."
MARK: [sits] "You look sad."
MEREDITH: "I just saw my father for the first time in 20 years."
MARK: "How’d that go?
MEREDITH: "It could have gone better. What’re you still doing here?"
MARK: "I'm hoping Addison shows up."
MEREDITH: "You're still in love with her?"
MARK: "You're still in love with Derek."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "She won't show, you know."
MARK: "No?"
MEREDITH: "He’s not the kind of guy you leave if you can help it."
MARK: "But what if you're wrong? Just this once, what if life comes down on the side of the dirty mistresses?"

[narrating] "I've heard that it’s possible to grow up, I've just never met anyone who’s actually done it. Without parents to defy, we break the rules we make for ourselves. We throw tantrums when things don’t go our way. We whisper secrets with our best friend, in the dark. We look for comfort where we can find it. And we hope against all logic, against all experience, like children, we never give up hope."

[corners George in elevator] "You’re trapped. You you don’t have to talk. I’ll do the talking, George. I am truly, very deeply sorry. I’m not going to make excuses, I’m just sorry. Look... I know you’re going to get off this elevator and walk away and not look back. But George, we're friends, real friends. And that means, no matter how long it takes, when you finally do decide to look back, I’ll still be here."

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.
