Don't apologize for caring about your [Jo] patients. A lot of doctors aren't willing to go all in. It hurts too much. But that's what's going to make you such an excellent doctor.

Miranda

Callie: You [Meredith] and Derek are living proof that love exists. That it works, that there is hope. You guys are a freaking romance novel, and I, for one, am rooting for you two. Team MerDer!
Alex: I'm not saying that.

Meredith: He's done this before.
Maggie: What?
Meredith: Moved to a new city, got a new job, ignored his wife's calls, met a girl, fell in love, started over.
Callie: Wait, what are you talking about, "met a girl"?
Meredith: Me. He met me. He left Addison when the marriage got hard, moved to Seattle, met me in a bar. What if he's doing the same thing now?

You're [Callie] right. Godspeed. Go kiss everyone.

Arizona

Jackson: What is the matter?
April: What's the matter is that you keep holding me like this delicate flower that's gonna break every time you look at me. That is what is the matter.

Meredith: She was perky, and she sounded happy and tall with a lot of great hair.
Alex: You saw her? How did you see her?
Meredith: I didn't. I heard her voice. Her perky, happy, tall voice.
Maggie: I hate voices like that.
Alex: You can tell by the voice?

Life's too short to be scared. So, screw the gap. Let Ethan razz your berries, goose your gander, tickle your tail feathers, cup your coconuts, rock your rump, poke your hontas, wallop your wonderland!

Callie

Jackson: You might get an invite from me to join the plastics posse.
Ben: You think that sounds cool?
Jackson: I did not at first, but it grows on you.

The point is, I'm going to get to figure it out. Something is going to happen next. The point is, I'm alive, and I wouldn't be if you hadn't been such a pain in my ass.

Dr. Herman

Amelia: Damn it!
Meredith: I just got here, I haven't had a chance to screw anything up yet.

Bailey: I held him in my hands. He's not even born and I held him in my hands.
Arizona: I know that feeling. It's privilege. Great privilege.

Maybe you'll get lucky and you'll snip out the part that makes her kinda bitchy.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
