PRESTON: "So where do we stand?"
CRISTINA: "At the northeast corner of the hospital?"

CRISTINA: [enters room naked, in silence]
PRESTON: "Cristina what the hell are you doing?"
CRISTINA: "Getting comfortable in my apartment."
GEORGE: [holds hands over face] "I didn't see anything."
PRESTON: [to George] "Get out!"
CRISTINA: [smiles] "Stick to the basics."

PRESTON: "You forged my signature?"
MEREDITH: "That’s really bad, right?"
PRESTON: "Yeah, that’s really bad." [pauses] The next time you decide to forge my signature, let me know. Save me a trip."
MEREDITH: "That’s it? You're not gonna yell and say 'Dammit, Grey' and then storm off?"
PRESTON: "I will if you want me to."
MEREDITH: "That's okay."

MEREDITH: [narrating] "Everybody's a liar."
PRESTON: "Dr. Grey, is that a dog?"
MEREDITH: [holding dog by the leash] "No."
MIRANDA: "Tell me that is not a dog."
ALEX: "It's not a dog."

PRESTON: "His injuries are far less severe. We have a much greater chance of saving him."
DEREK: "Well I could argue that because her injuries are more severe, he should be the one that gets moved."
MEREDITH: "So, basically, whoever you move doesn't stand a chance. How do you choose? How do you decide who gets to live?"

PRESTON: "Never have I questioned a fellow surgeon in their O.R. I never understood what the problem was -- an intern dating an attending -- until today."
CRISTINA: "I'm not used to being wrong."
PRESTON: "I know. But you're an intern. Second guessing a resident? That's not your job."

MEREDITH: "Stop it."
DYLAN: "What?"
MEREDITH: "Stop looking at me like I'm a patient."
DYLAN: "I'm sorry?"
MEREDITH: "The two of you are looking at me the way we look at patients. Like I’m gonna freak out at any minute. Well, I'm not going to freak out, so whatever it is, just tell me straight up."
PRESTON: [pauses] "The main oxygen line runs directly under this floor."
MEREDITH: "Okay. Not okay." [silence] "Well, I need one of you to tell me what this means exactly. Because I think I know what it means, but I tend to be glass half-empty these days, so I don’t trust what I think it means. Because what I think it means is that if the bomb were to explode over the oxygen line, the whole hospital could blow up. That’s just crazy right?"

DEREK: "I don't want to be the guy that killed Bailey's husband."
PRESTON: "I don't want to be the guy who kills us all."

MEREDITH: [with her hand on the bomb, in the patient] "Is this the strangest thing that’s ever happened in your O.R.?"
PRESTON: "I would have to say it is."
MEREDITH: "Good, because I'm very competitive."
PRESTON: [smiles] "The very best surgeons always are."

PRESTON: "You need to go. I cannot do this with you in here. I cannot think."
CRISTINA: "You know in movies, how the hero and there's always the other guy, the one who sees danger and runs in the opposite direction?"
PRESTON: "Yes."
CRISTINA: "Be the other guy."
PRESTON: "That's not an option."

HANNAH: "So, inside this man, I’m touching live, unexploded ammunition."
PRESTON: "I think so."
HANNAH: [pauses] "Not the greatest feeling in the world."
PRESTON: "It's definitely as bad as it seems."
HANNAH: [panicking] "I am 22 years old. I should not even be in here! This is some kind of mistake."

PRESTON: "You were gone when I woke up."
CRISTINA: "I had to go do a thing."
PRESTON: "A thing."
CRISTINA: "Yeah. A thing."
PRESTON: "You didn’t leave a note."
CRISTINA: "Sorry."
PRESTON: [sighs] "We go to sleep, I think everything's fine. We wake up, and you're just a little bit crazy."
CRISTINA: "I had a thing!"

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.
