PRESTON: "Meredith. This is about Meredith."
CRISTINA: "She doesn’t know yet."
PRESTON: "Meredith?"
CRISTINA: "She’s my person."
PRESTON: "Right. And if Meredith doesn’t approve, then what?"
CRISTINA: "This... this is not about getting her approval, it's about…"
PRESTON: "What?"
CRISTINA: "Telling her makes it, makes it…. If I murdered someone she’s the person I’d call to help me drag the corpse across the living room floor."
PRESTON: "Okay, now you’re likening someone here to a corpse. I’m done."
CRISTINA: "She’s my person."

PRESTON: "What is your problem?"
CRISTINA: "Everyone’s back. Everyone’s back except her. And I listen to her. Everyday, about her McLove life. Her McDreamy, her McCrap. And the one day, the one day I have a thing she disappears."

PRESTON: [pause] "Cristina and I are engaged."
DEREK: "Congratulations."
PRESTON: "She doesn’t want to tell anyone. At least, not until she tells Meredith first."
DEREK: "They’re different than other women."
PRESTON: [Laughs] "Yes, these women. Yes they are."
DEREK: "You know, maybe we’ll never know them. I mean really know them. Now that you and Cristina are engaged, you’ve got a lot of work to do."

PRESTON: "You’re confiding in me."
DEREK: "Yes."

RICHARD: "Men who... have gray hair are noticed less than men who... don't."
DEREK: "By who?"
RICHARD: "Well..."
PRESTON: "By the ladies?"
MARK: [coughs trying not to laugh]
DEREK: "Looks good Chief."
RICHARD: "Very natural."

PRESTON: [to the Chief] "What happened to your hair?"
ADDISON: "Leave him be."
MARK: "He dyed it."
DEREK: "But why?"
ADDISON: "Leave him be!"
DEREK: "What are you doing?"
PRESTON: "Okay... but why?"

CRISTINA: "I don't do rings. Don't expect me to suddenly change. I'm a surgeon, just like you. And we'll have money, we can hire a wife."
PRESTON: "Are you saying yes?"
CRISTINA: "Y-yeah."
PRESTON: "I'm not letting you scrub in tomorrow."
CRISTINA: "Well, I'm not wearing a ring."
PRESTON: "Okay."
CRISTINA: "Okay then."
PRESTON: [pauses] "YES!"

MIRANDA: "These are your letters of support for my free clinic. Sign them."
PRESTON: "Why do you want this clinic so badly?"
DEREK: "You're a surgeon."
MIRANDA: "Because I need something more. I know you all have your messy love lives and your secrets and your silliness, but I want more. I need something to hold on to. I need a reason to believe that medicine can do more than stitch you up and send you away. I need to believe that medicine can not only save lives, but change lives! I need... I need... to believe in something the way I used to believe in you all. Sign the papers! Sign the papers."

MEREDITH: [to Cristina, then Preston] "You're enjoying your meal at the International House of Silence. Burke, you have to feed Cristina. She doesn't cook and she will starve to death."
CRISTINA: "I have cereal!"
MEREDITH: "You two live together, someone has to be the first to speak."
PRESTON: "I am giving a dinner party. If she wants to sit there, she can sit there. Let's just enjoy our evening and talk about something else."

PRESTON: "Meredith. Would you like seconds?"
MEREDITH: "Maybe Cristina would like some. Cristina, would you like some?"
PRESTON: "I only made enough for three."
MEREDITH: "You just said there were seconds."
DEREK: "This isn't at all awkward."

MARK: "One of us is going to be Chief."
PRESTON: [motions to himself, Derek, Addison] "No, no. One of *us* is going to be Chief. But you... no."

CRISTINA: "I was right. I swear I really believe what I did was right. I don't want you to forgive me. Frankly, I'd find it patronizing if you did. Because... while I know I was right, you think I'm wrong. Which doesn't matter... because... I'm in this. I'm in this for the long haul. And I'm in this to finish the race. So if that means I don't win this one, then fine. I don't win. You win. I'm talking. See? I'm talking first. You win."
PRESTON: "Marry me."

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

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
