But, even when our hopes give way to reality and we finally have to surrender to the truth, it just means we've lost today battle. Not tomorrows war. Here's the thing about surrender, once you do it, actually give in, you forget why you were eve fighting in the first place.Meredith

Lexie: Oh my god. I'm gonna be a brides maid? Oh my god, I don't know what to say.

Bailey: Is there anything else you need before I go?
Arizona: No. You wanna sit a while?
Bailey: No, I do not want to sit. I've been sitting and lying down all day.
Arizona: Dr. Bailey.
Bailey: Holding a child. If I wanted to spend the day holding a child, I would have stayed home to hold my own child. I didn't do a single medical thing today. I didn't even put a band aid on a patient. I'm... I'm just tired. I'm done.
Arizona: Are you gonna tell your husband?
Bailey: What would I tell him?
Arizona: That it's more than just cutting. Pedes is more than just cutting. And, what you did today was heroic, and you know it.
Bailey: Ok. Maybe I'll tell him that.

Mark: You know that's the first actual compliment you've ever given me?
Derek: It wasn't a compliment, it was a simple statement of fact.
Mark: See, why do you do that? Why can't you just give a person a compliment?
Derek: If you have to ask for a compliment, it's not a compliment. Are you asking for a compliment?
Derek: Then it's not a compliment!

Derek: He has a long recovery ahead of him. He has severely damaged his facial nerves, shattered his inner ear, and lost a great deal of blood.
Patient's wife: Oh my god.
Mark: But, he'll be fine. He'll be in some pain for a while, but he'll be fine.
Patient's wife: Oh my god, thank you. Thank you both so much.
Derek: Thank Dr. Sloan. That kind of bleed, not many surgeons could have handled. He saved your husbands life. Would you like to see your husband now?
Patient's wife: Yes, thank you.

Owen: I jumped. In front of her car. And she was just driving to the bank.
Dr. Wyatt: Are you talking about Cristina?
Owen: I jumped in front of her. I knew, I knew I wasn't together. I knew no good for her, or for anyone. And I wrecked her. And that is unforgivable. I don't forgive myself for that. I can't forgive myself for that. And I feel shameful about that. That is what I fell today. Shame.
Dr. Wyatt: Good. That's a start.
Owen: How is that a start?
Dr. Wyatt: You named it. The feeling. You have to know what it is, before you can start to navigate to somewhere better.

Arizona: What happened?
Callie: He ah, gave me an ultimatum. He said if I didn't come home, he'd take away my trust fund. He'd cut me off. So, I cut him off. I mean, if he can't accept me for who I am... I cut him off.
Arizona: Are you ok?
Callie: No. I mean yeah, I... don't know.

Cristina: 98 over 72. That's good. That's good.
Izzie: Don't. Don't try to make me up better than I am because I'm not. I'm sick.
Cristina: You had an incredibly high dose of IL2 today, this is how you're supposed to feel.
Izzie: All I wanted to do today was flip through magazines, and call caterers, and make Mer try on dresses I knew she'd hate. I thought it would be fun or funny. I thought I could be the same person I was when I woke up this morning, but I'm not. I'm just another patient trapped inside a sick, dieing, cancer ridden body.
