IZZIE: "Why do you do that?"
ALEX: "Do what?"
IZZIE: "Act like an ass whenever any one but me is around. They hate you enough as it is."

BAILEY: "Izzie, both Dr. Shepherds need an intern up on ICU."
IZZIE: "Wait... both of them, together? Me, by myself, with the two married people who hate each other?"
BAILEY: "Go. Cristina, you're on the thoracotomy."
CRISTINA: "With Burke? I can't have the hateful married couple instead?"

MEREDITH: [to Derek] "Stop talking to me like you're my boyfriend. Stop talking to me... at all!" [Storms out]
ALEX: "Dude, that was rough."

MIRANDA: "Do you have a problem?"
IZZIE: "No."

[narrating] "Surgeons are control freaks. With a scalpel in your hand, you feel unstoppable. There's no fear, there's no pain. You're 10 feet tall and bulletproof. And then you leave the O.R. All that perfection, that beautiful control, just falls to crap."

MEREDITH

[narrating] "A wise man once said you can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. What he meant is nothing comes without a price. So before you go into battle, you better decide how much you're willing to lose. Too often, going after what feels good means letting go of what you know is right, and letting someone in means abandoning the walls you've spent a lifetime building. Of course, the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don't see coming, when we don't have time to come up with a strategy to pick a side or to measure the potential loss. When that happens, when the battle chooses us and not the other way around, that's when the sacrifice can turn out to be more than we can bear."

MEREDITH

[to George] "Remember the good old days? When you lived with us, when you used to tell me stuff. Like... where you live?!"

IZZIE

IZZIE: "You're tall."
DENNY: "I know."

FINN: "This shouldn’t take too long. We can grab some dinner right after."
MEREDITH: "After?"
FINN: "After she gives birth."
MEREDITH: "You're birthing a horse?"
FINN: "Yeah."
MEREDITH: "That's your errand? You're birthing a horse?"
FINN: "Yeah. I guess I could have mentioned it before but, you know, I didn't want to scare you back to your knitting. You can wait back here."
MEREDITH: "Back here?"
FINN: "If you want. I mean it gets a little messy."
MEREDITH: "No, I want to birth a horse!"

MIRANDA: "What's going on between Stevens and Denny? is it a crush, some innocent flirtation? Or is Stevens actually crossing the line?"
MEREDITH: "Well, I know she likes him, but I can't imagine Izzie would do that."
MIRANDA: "I didn't think you and Yang would be stupid enough to fall for your attendings, but I was wrong about that, wasn't I."
MEREDITH: "Yeah, well, it's okay. I'm knitting these days and I'm actually thinking about accepting a date, with a vet!"
MIRANDA: "Grey, do you really think I care?
MEREDITH: "No."
MIRANDA: "Good. Maybe you aren't as stupid as I thought."

MEREDITH: "Hey."
DEREK: "Well, hey."

DEREK: "Yeah, he's home."
MEREDITH: "He seems to be doing better."
DEREK: "Yeah, he's... he's doing good."
MEREDITH: [laughs] "I'm not laughing at you."
DEREK: [laughs] "No."
MEREDITH: "It's just, you know... bad sex isn't the kind of thing that wives want announced to dirty-ex-mistresses."
DEREK: "You're not the dirty ex-mistress. You're a friend. She's your friend. I'm your friend. We're all friends."
MEREDITH: "But you didn't tell her."
DEREK: "No." [smiles] "So how's your day going?"

DEREK: [answers phone] "Hello? Hi. Yeah, yeah." [to Addison] "It's about Doc. No, I'm here... I can pick him up this morning. Sure, I-"
ADDISON: [grabs phone] "Hi, Dr. Dandrige? Listen, we're gonna have to call you back becasue we're trying really hard to have some decent sex here." [hangs up]
MEREDITH: [silence]

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

It's harder to love somebody than to walk away from them.

Amelia

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
