CRISTINA: "What the hell is this?"
PRESTON: "It's a key."
CRISTINA: "Why?"
PRESTON: "Why is it a key? Are we feeling existential this morning?"
CRISTINA: "Well, if the key turns in a lock, and no one asked for the key or even wanted the key, does it make a sound?"

[to Meredith & Cristina] "This is a men's room. Either whip one out, or leave."

[to Cristina] "You do enjoy crossing the line, don't you?"

PRESTON: "I think you should know that Richard promised Chief to both of us... but you already knew that."
DEREK: "Yeah, well, keep your friends close and your enemies closer."
PRESTON: "No. You're not the enemy, you're just the competition."

PRESTON: "Anything you say in the next 30 seconds is free, starting right now."
MIRANDA: "I think you’re cocky. Arrogant. Bossy and pushy. You also have a God complex and don’t think of anybody but your damn self."
PRESTON: "But, I-"
MIRANDA: "Wait. I still have 23 seconds and I’m not done."

PRESTON: "What the... what the hell is this? Does anybody know what this is?"
MEREDITH: "Oh my God."
PRESTON: [holds body part] "What is it, Grey?"
MEREDITH: "She bit it off-"
PRESTON: "What is it? Spit it out, Grey."
MEREDITH: "That's his.. penis."

"The only person that can keep a promise that big is God, and I haven't seen him holding a scalpel lately."

PRESTON: "I guess we never really got our date."
CRISTINA: [smiles] "Are you kidding? That was the best date I've ever been on."

PRESTON: "Dr. Yang, you're handling the saw."
CRISTINA: "You won't let me pick the wine, but this you'll let me do?"

WOMAN IN RESTAURANT: "Oh my God! Is there a doctor here?"
CRISTINA & PRESTON: "Yes!"

PRESTON: "So... it's date night."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, it's a night... with a date."

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
