MEREDITH: "Who's pathetic?"
MEREDITH: "You, who pretend to be my friends! Calling me pathetic. Behind my back, in front of my face. Why don't you just dump the pig’s blood on me now and get it over with?"

MEREDITH: "I actually said 'pick me.' Pick me!?"
JOE: "I think it's romantic."
MEREDITH: "It's not romantic, Joe. It's horrifying. Horror-movie horrifying. Carrie at the prom with the pig's blood horrifying!"

[shows teen patient a picture of her daughter] "I'm her mother, but I'm not her mom. I wanted better for her than I could do at 16. Look... you're reading her Shakespeare. When you're working 12 hours at the diner, like our moms, you won't be coming home and reading her Shakespeare."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

If I did my job well, it's not because people listened to me. It's because they believed in me. Believed that I knew them well enough and believed in them enough to tell them how and when to use their brilliance.


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.
