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

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

You think that true love is the only thing that can crush your heart; that will take your life and light it up or destroy it. Then you become a mother.

Meredith
