Grey's Anatomy Season 1 Episode 6: "If Tomorrow Never Comes" Quotes
[narrating] "The early bird catches the worm; a stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we haven't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to â€˜seize the day'. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves like Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying."MEREDITH

MIRANDA: "Excuse me?"
DEREK: "Well, that's your name right? It's on your jacket. Fine, I'll just call you Bailey then."
MIRANDA: "You know you think you're charming... in that talented, neurotic, overly moussed hair sort of way. Good for you. But if you think I'm gonna stand back and watch while you favor her-"
DEREK: "I don't favor her. She's good."
MIRANDA: "I'm sure she is."
DEREK: "You know, can I point out, technically, that I'm your boss."
MIRANDA: "You don't scare me. Look, I'm not gonna advertise your extracurricular activates with my intern. However next time I see you favoring Meredith Grey in any way, I'll make sure she doesn't see the inside of an OR. For a month. Just for the sake of balance!"
CRISTINA: "Oh, please, a hot doctor wants to make you open up and say ah. Itâ€™s the American dream, stop whining about it."
MEREDITH: "No, there's no good that can come from sleeping with your boss."
