And it's not about the sex. It's not... about the sex. It's about that moment afterward... when the world stops. It just feels so safe, so safe. I'm not ready to give that up. I'm not ready to give that up.

Meredith

Get this baby out of me safely and you can have whatever you want.

Meredith

He's perfect. He's just perfect.

Derek

So I poop on the table. It's part of the miracle of life.

Meredith

If I say, "Bailey peed on me," I think it's safe to assume it's my son.

Meredith

MIRANDA: [steps in front of Derek] "No. Turn around and walk away."
DEREK: "From what?"
MIRANDA: "From my intern!"
DEREK: "No, I wasn’t going-"
MIRANDA: "Yes you were. Come on. You can’t do this. You don’t have the right. Not anymore."
DEREK: "I just want to find out if she's okay."
MIRANDA: "She's not. She's a human traffic accident, and everybody's slowing down to look at the wreckage. She's doing the best she can with what she has left, and I know you can't see this, 'cause you're in it, but you can't help her now! You'll only make it worse. So walk away. Go!"

CRISTINA: "I don't do rings. Don't expect me to suddenly change. I'm a surgeon, just like you. And we'll have money, we can hire a wife."
PRESTON: "Are you saying yes?"
CRISTINA: "Y-yeah."
PRESTON: "I'm not letting you scrub in tomorrow."
CRISTINA: "Well, I'm not wearing a ring."
PRESTON: "Okay."
CRISTINA: "Okay then."
PRESTON: [pauses] "YES!"

The human body is made up of systems that keep it alive. The one that keeps you breathing, the one that keeps you standing, the one that makes you hungry, and the one that makes you happy. They're all connected, take a piece out and everything else falls apart. And it's only when our support systems look like they might fail us that you realize how much we depended on them all along.

Meredith

Jackson: The chief banged my mom. Webber. Dr. Webber banged my mom.
Meredith: If it makes you feel any better, he banged my mom too.

Dying changes everything. There is the emotional fall out, sure. But there's also the practical stuff. Who's going to do your job? Who's going to take care of your family?

Meredith

MARK: "Aren't you gonna get in there? If you wanna be chief, you gotta fight with the big boys."
ADDISON: "Oh, I intend to fight like a girl. I'll let them kill each other and then I'll be the only one left standing."

It's these stupid pregnancy hormones. They make me want to have sex all the time.

Meredith

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)

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.

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.
