[narrating] "My college campus has a magic statue. It’s a tradition for students to rub its nose for good luck. My freshman roommate really believed in it and insisted on rubbing its nose before every exam. Studying might have been a better idea. She flunked out her sophomore year. But we all have little superstitious things that we do. If it's not believing in magic statues, it's avoiding sidewalk cracks or always putting our left shoe on first. Knock on wood. Step on a crack, break your mother's back. The last thing we want to do is offend the gods."

MEREDITH

MEREDITH: "George is still ignoring me."
CRISTINA: "Just ignore him back."
MEREDITH: "Derek says I should apologize until he listens."
CRISTINA: "Derek says?"
MEREDITH: "It's good advice. He's my friend. That’s good friend advice."

CRISTINA: "This is great. No blood, no guts, no lives to save. It's dead quiet..."
IZZIE: "Cristina!?"
MIRANDA: "Yang, did you really just say that?"
CRISTINA: "Say what?"
GEORGE: "The 'q' word."
IZZIE: "That's like saying 'Macbeth' in the theater."
CRISTINA: "Oh please. You think because someone says its quiet that it will mean…"

CRISTINA: [Hands Dr. Burke his cap]
PRESTON: "Thank you. How long have you had this? It's one of my favorites."
CRISTINA: "You're welcome. You know you don’t need it."
PRESTON: "What?"
CRISTINA: "I keep that cap in my locker because every morning I look at it and I'm reminded of what I'm here for and what I want to be. A great surgeon. One who is decisive and executes and who doesn’t need a piece of clothing to give him an edge in surgery. You don't need it.
PRESTON: [pauses] "I know. You're right."
CRISTINA: "I know I'm right."

DENNY: "Aww, don't cry."
IZZIE: "I cannot fall for a patient."
DENNY: "Good luck with that."
IZZIE: [kisses Denny]

IZZIE: "What did you say to him?"
ALEX: "What are you talking about?"
IZZIE: "Why does he think he's dying?"
ALEX: "Maybe because he is."
IZZIE: "Just so we're clear... we're over, Alex. This is over."
ALEX: "What? You're breaking up with me over a corpse!"
IZZIE: "No! No! I'm breaking up with you because... on your very best day, that corpse... is twice the man you will ever be. You're not good enough for me, Alex. You're not good enough for anyone."

GEORGE: [to Calli Torres] "Hi. I didn’t call. I should have called. I just…" [Calli walks off]
GEORGE: [calls her on the phone]
CALLI: "Hello?"
GEORGE: "Hi, this is George O'Malley calling. You gave me your phone number. I should have called sooner, I know, but I'm calling now and I just wanted to know if... maybe you wanted to go out with me sometime. Because I love to watch you set bones. And I rarely spend that much time in a woman's restroom and... I really like you. So... is that a yes?"
CALLI: [nods]

ALEX: "O'Malley, you are a pathetic excuse for a man."
GEORGE: "Excuse me?"
ALEX: "You heard me. You're like a whiny little girl.
MEREDITH: "Alex!"
ALEX: [to Meredith] "You know why he's not speaking to you, because he's not over you."
ALEX: [to George] So you got laid and it went badly. A man would move on. But you? You mope around like a dog that likes to get kicked. You make me sick. If it wouldn’t get me thrown out of the program, I'd smash your pathetic little face right into that locker."

PRESTON: "Hey... if you feel that strongly about O'Malley, I'll ask him to leave tonight."
CRISTINA: "No, don't."
PRESTON: "I thought you wanted him out."
CRISTINA: "I do. Just not tonight."
PRESTON: [Hands her his cap] "Scrub cap."
CRISTINA: "Oh, thank you."
BURKE: [smiles] "You're welcome."

IZZIE: "I need Burke's cap, now."
CRISTINA: "Excuse me?"
IZZIE: "Are you going to give it to him or am I going to physically take it from you?"
CRISTINA: "Are you threatening me?"
IZZIE: "I swear to god, Cristina... I like you. I really do. But I grew up in a trailer park and I am not above kicking your pampered little Beverly Hills ass. And I do mean physically kicking your ass."

[Addison hands Meredith hot chocolate]
DEREK: "Juju?"
ADDISON: "Yup."
DEREK: "You just juju'ed Meredith."
ADDISON: "Yes I did. In the spirit of friendship."
DEREK: "Huh."
ADDISON: "What, are we not being friends with Meredith anymore?"
DEREK: "No, no, we are. Meredith and I are friends."
ADDISON: "And you and I are married, so by proxy, Meredith and I are friends."
DEREK: [pauses] "That’s very big of you."
ADDISON: "Yeah."
DEREK: [laughs] "You don’t have to do that. I mean, it's not like I'm going to be friends with, say, Mark."
ADDISON: "Well, neither am I. Now finish your juju before somebody else dies."

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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
