RICHARD: "What kind of idiot lights a cigarette in a hospital?"
DEREK: "Apparently people do idiotic things all the time."

DEREK: "Can I ask you a personal question? Why did you leave Meredith's mother?"
RICHARD: "I could have left Adele. I could have gone away with Ellis. But I would have had so much baggage, so much guilt. Ellis couldn't see it, but I wasn't... I would have never made her happy. Not like she was certain to be happy. I was a better man for walking away. I loved her enough to walk away."

RICHARD: "Dr. Sloan?"
MARK: "Dr. Webber!"
RICHARD: "What are you doing in Seattle?"
MARK: [pauses] "I don't know... I have a thing for ferryboats."

RICHARD: "I respect it. I really do. But I can't allow it. Violates all sorts of codes and you know it."
CALLIE: "So you're kicking me out, but you're allowed to live in your office?"
RICHARD: [pauses] "You noticed that, huh."
CALLIE: "I'm pretty observant."
RICHARD: "Well, guess if I'm throwing you out I better follow my own rules."

Richard: Adele, I just need more time.
Adele: I don't have any more time to give.

DEREK: "Where is she?"
RICHARD: "You had to be the cowboy..."
DEREK: "Where is she?!"
ADDISON: "Derek! Thank God, you're alive."
ADELE: "That is not the she he was asking for."

DEREK: "You realize this requires Meredith's power of attorney."
RICHARD: "I know."
DEREK: "Well, we need to tell her. It's probably better if it comes from you. With me there's baggage. With you, you're just trying to help out a friend."
RICHARD: [pauses] "Right, right."

"You're not here to make friends, Addison. You're here to make better surgeons. Being a teacher can be a lonely business."

"Just shut up and count backwards already."

"Richard... you're a good friend." RICHARD

MIRANDA: "You are a surgical junkie. Go home!"
RICHARD: "Adele is already mad. I'm in trouble no matter what ... and there's a wipple happening in OR2."
MIRANDA: "Go home, right now!"
RICHARD: [walking away] "You know this kind of treatment is the reason they call you the Nazi!"
MIRANDA: [smiles] "Happy Thanksgiving."

MEREDITH: "We have... custody of a penis?"
RICHARD: "Yes. Until the cops come for it."
MEREDITH: "Okay, well, what am I supposed to do with the penis?"

MIRANDA: "I'm pregnant, you blind moron."
RICHARD: "You’re what?"
MIRANDA: My heart rate is 110, I’m burning 3,000 calories a day, my legs are swollen, I've got indigestion and gas. Did you know carrying a boy in your uterus means you burn 10 percent more calories than if you had a girl? Guess what I’m carrying. I tried for seven damn years and a month before my fellowship notifications the stick turns blue. Men. From the very beginning they just suck the life right out of you. I’m not leaving. I’m pregnant."

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."

Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
