Richard: I am not crying wolf
Bailey: Sir?
Richard: I do not make decisions lightly. And I don't bow to dictators. Miranda Bailey, you will be Grey Sloan Memorial's next chief of surgery. Congratulations.
Bailey: Thank you?

I like this Kepner. I never thought I would like Kepner. You know, old Kepner -- there was pigtails, bunny rabbits, and smiling. Lots of smiling. But Kepner the reboot, Kepner 2.0, she's crazy. She's fierce. She's womaned up. Thank you, United States Army.

Bailey: What's in your mouth?
Intern: A brie tart. With proscuitto.
Bailey: Brie? Brie? Um, there are patients who had chunks of cement fall on them during their morning commute, but please. Have some brie.

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.

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.

Don't apologize for caring about your [Jo] patients. A lot of doctors aren't willing to go all in. It hurts too much. But that's what's going to make you such an excellent doctor.

Bailey: I held him in my hands. He's not even born and I held him in my hands.
Arizona: I know that feeling. It's privilege. Great privilege.

It's her song. So, get off the stage and let her sing it.

Bailey: I saw you do it in the OR, Dr. Badass.
Jo: Oh my, God! You have a problem.

Webber: I think I'm too late.
Bailey: No such thing.

I am going to walk in there and tell the truth. I deserve it and if any one of them has the misguided impression that there is any choice at all in this matter, I will set that person on the righteous path before he or she can reveal him or herself as a moron.

It’s just Webber picked me.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."

MEREDITH

[narrating] The human life is made up of choices. Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. And then there are the choices that matter. Love or hate. To be a hero or to be a coward. To fight or to give in. To live. Or die. Live or die. That's the important choice. And it's not always in our hands.
