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.

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.

Derek

It's good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose.

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.

Richard: Chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight, Stevens. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.

Does she belong to any of you?

Put away that little toy.

Chief

RICHARD: [sighs] "Do you notice anything about this leg, Yang?"
CRISTINA: "Sir?"
RICHARD: "Such as the fact that it was shaved recently, and manicured? Does this look like a man who would have shaved one of his legs this morning and applied toenail polish?"
CRISTINA: [pauses] "No."
RICHARD: "Find the man's leg, Yang. Now!"

The biggest influences in your life are sitting around you, right now.

It's a miracle I'm here. Kepner's a terrible driver!

Come on Stevens.

Meredith: I've got some adhesions. I need to dissect down to mobilize the sigmoid.
Richard: Oh...
Meredith: Bovey please.
Richard: Mmmm.... Mmm mmm. MMM MMMM... MMM MMM!
Meredith: Do you have something you'd like to say?
Richard: No, no no. You're doing fine.
Mark: How's the solo surgery coming along Grey?
Meredith: Well, I think it's going ok. But, you should probably ask the Chief here.
Richard: She's doing great. You chose a quatery when I probably would have gone with scissors. But, she made it work. We'll be out of here in plenty of time for the wedding.
Mark: Good. At least you won't have any excuses.
Meredith: Excuse me?
Mark: This is the second time I've been Derek's best man. I have to come up with a toast, offer some words of wisdom. It's a lot of work. I don't wanna have to be his best man a 3rd time, if you know what I mean.
Meredith: So, you came in here to threaten me?
Mark: I'm his best man. That's my job.
Richard: Hmmm...
Meredith: What now?
Richard: Oh, no, it's ok. It's fine. Everything's fine, right? I don't need to say anything.
Mark: Hmmm...

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)

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
