Richard Webber Quotes
Richard: Dr. Grey
Meredith: I'm sorry for the way I spoke to you earlier.
Richard: Dr. Grey
Meredith: I know I was out of line, and I know I can't possibly imagine what you've been through. But, I also know that this cannot be your daughters story. That she shot her dad 17 times to protect her mom, and you went back to him. You have to change her story while you still have a chance. For both of you. But for her, but for your little girl, you have to change her story. (Walks away) I'll pack my stuff.

Derek: You just have to give her some room. You two have history.
Richard: I apologized.
Derek I know, and it's loaded.
Richard: Look, she keeps yelling at me that I'm not her father. Well, I am not. I fell in love with her mother, that's all I did.
Derek: Her mother never got over you. And she's not gonna...
Richard: Oh, that's not my fault. Look I was young, lots of people have affairs. They have affairs and they don't... Look what Ellis did after I left, that's on Ellis. And I'm trying to run a hospital here.
Derek: She's doing the best she can Richard.
Richard: Well, her best isn't good enough. If any other resident... If any other resident pulled the crap she did today. She is still here because of my history with you. That's it. That's the only reason.
Derek: You keep saying you're not her father, but you... ok... you know, since we're talking. You're the most professional guy I know. Most level headed. Except when it comes to Meredith Grey. You gave me hell. You know, you weren't gonna give me Chief because I was dating Meredith Grey. You told her about the ring, you sent her out to the woods to bring me back. That's not running a hospital. You paged her to your office to try and address us. You paged her again today for Thatcher. You have history with her. You keep saying you're not her father, but the way you act, you consider her family. For what it's worth.

Richard: I see that you're angry, and may be angry with your mother.
Meredith: Don't do that! I'm not your friend, and I am not your family. You don't get to call me into your office on personal business, and you don't get to speak to me this way right now. It's an abuse of power. I'm a resident. I work for you. You have to speak to me like I'm a resident. And for the record Chief, somebody had to stand up for that little girl, and I make no apologies for that.
Richard: You wanna just be a resident? Fine. Alright then. That woman, is a victim of domestic violence. This hospital is supposed to be a safe place for her to come and tell her story. And as her doctors it is our job to help her. You did not do your job. Instead you further battered a battered woman.
Meredith: What about the little girl!
Richard: Dr. Grey. You will stay away from that child. You will stay away from that family. You will not come within 100 feet of them. And if you do, you will be suspended from this hospital pending reevaluation of your emotional and mental fitness for residency.

Maddie's mom: Wait. Maddie needs to tell her daddy she's sorry before he goes. Maddie, you need to tell your daddy you're sorry. Maddie, people die in surgery. You don't want your daddy to die without telling him how sorry you are. Come on, lets go tell him we love him.
Meredith: You know, no. No!
Maddie's mom: What?
Meredith: Maddie, stay right here ok.
Richard: Dr. Grey.
Meredith: No. She will not go apologize to him. You should be apologizing to her. I understand you're a victim here, but there is no room for you to be a victim when your 6 year old is on the line. She's stronger than you. Your 6 year old is stronger than you. At least she did something. She stood up for the two of you, which is more than you did for her. No, she won't apologize to him.

Richard: How'd it go?
Arizona: Oh, Dr. Grey. If you're free, Maddie here could use a little cleaning and laceration repair 'cause I'm being paged.
Richard: Meredith. Are you ok?
Meredith: I'm great. Thanks (takes Maddie's file) Hey Maddie, I'm Dr. Grey. Mind if I take a look at that cut on your face?
Maddie's Mom: You know, she's so sorry. So sorry.
Maddie: Is my daddy gonna die?
Meredith: I don't know. I hope not.
Maddie: How come?
Meredith: How come what?
Maddie: How come he don't die? I shot him lots'a times. How come he don't die?

Meredith: Hey, you got paged too?
Lexie: Yeah, report to the Chief's office, STAT. What, what do you think? Why? Why would he page us STAT?
Meredith: I don't know. Did we kill anyone lately and don't remember?
Richard: Your father's here. He's 29 days sober, just out of rehab. He's taking it seriously. He's working his steps. The 9th step is to make amends wherever possible. It's the key to an alcoholics recovery. To take responsibility for the wreckage of his past. I paged you here to ask you to please hear him out as a favor to me. To please, hear him out.
Meredith: Ah, I'm covering the pit Chief.
Richard: I'll cover it.
Meredith: But, there's a trauma coming in.
Richard: I've got it Meredith. Please. Please.

Richard: The engagement. Our very own Seattle Grace wedding. I couldn't be happier for the both of you.

Izzie: What do you mean you don't deliver dresses? Just to try on? No, no, no. I... I can't come in. I... I... I have cancer. I'm... I'm bed bound and dying. (fake coughs) Fabulous! I'll fax you my choices.
(Chief and Dr. Swender are looking on)
Izzie: Hi! Ah, what do you need? Blood? Pee? What can I get you?
Richard: Just checking in on you. See how the chemo's sitting.
Izzie: Fine. I haven't puked yet. And, I'm making major progress on Mer's wedding.
Dr. Swender: You should really take it easy. The chemo's gonna take a lot out of you.
Izzie: I'll let you know if I hit the wall. (Answers her phone) Hello? Hi! Yes, I wanted to discuss, um, flower arrangements.
Dr. Swender: She needs to save her energy. This isn't just chemo. It's high dose IL2. It's designed to make the body attack itself. She's walking around now, but it's not gonna last. Her blood pressure's gonna tank, she's gonna be shaking with chills, she'll feel nauseous. She might even have a heart attack. Believe me, a few hours from now, Izzie Steven's is gonna wish she were dead.

Richard: Surgery went well today.
Richard: Shouldn't you and Meredith be out celebrating or something?
Derek: She turned me down twice. She says she understands, she forgives me for what happened in the woods, but...
Richard: So you showed her your dark side. Meredith never struck me as a woman afraid of the dark.
Derek: Well, I don't know.
Richard: Do you know it was Meredith's idea to ask Izzie if she wanted to harvest her eggs? So Izzie could have a chance at the future she wanted. A future Derek. She was confident that you'd succeed today. Meredith believes in you.

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)

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
