RICHARD: "You're blocking my light."
DEREK: "Think of it as a basic corner stich."
RICHARD: "I can figure out how to sew on my own buttons, thank you. I am a surgeon. Oh for God's sake! You sew this on for me, and I'll get rid of Addison and Sloan."
DEREK: "Really?"
RICHARD: "No."

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?"

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)

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
