"You are all a bunch of arrogant surgeons."


PRESTON: "You forged my signature?"
MEREDITH: "That’s really bad, right?"
PRESTON: "Yeah, that’s really bad." [pauses] The next time you decide to forge my signature, let me know. Save me a trip."
MEREDITH: "That’s it? You're not gonna yell and say 'Dammit, Grey' and then storm off?"
PRESTON: "I will if you want me to."
MEREDITH: "That's okay."

MEREDITH: [narrating] "Everybody's a liar."
PRESTON: "Dr. Grey, is that a dog?"
MEREDITH: [holding dog by the leash] "No."
MIRANDA: "Tell me that is not a dog."
ALEX: "It's not a dog."

IZZIE: "You’re not moving out, George."
GEORGE: "Oh, yes I am. I gave an ultimatum. Threw down the gauntlet. Drew a line in the sand."
IZZIE: "Well, it's time to ungive, unthrow, undraw."
GEORGE: [sighs] "A man does not give an ultimatum and then back down. Meredith had a choice and she chose the dog."
SOPHIE: "A girl chose a dog over you?"
GEORGE: "Yes!"
IZZIE: "No!"
SOPHIE: "That must be one hell of a dog."
GEORGE: "Excuse me?"
SOPHIE: "Those eyes, and those nice, firm hands. If a girl chose a dog over you, it must be one hell of a dog!"

"Stop. Don't talk to me! You'll only make me mad. I'm afraid you'll mess up my game, and I'm in the zone."


SOPHIE: "Nursing homes are for old people. I know I’m elderly. I do know that. But if I have to go to that place, I’m afraid I’ll become old."
GEORGE: "I don’t think that’s possible."
SOPHIE: [smiles] "You're too sweet."
GEORGE: "You know I would keep you here if I could."
SOPHIE: "No, darling, you can't waste any more time with me. You have to go balls out with the dog."
GEORGE: "Excuse me?"
SOPHIE: "So she chose an animal over you. Women are fools, that's old news. Life's too short for you to give in, Irish. So fight. You go and fight for what's yours."

[opens Alex's test scores] "Congratulations, you're not an idiot. Except when you are being an idiot."


[to Addison] "It's just a dog, it doesn’t mean anything. It’ll be fine."


CRISTINA: "Know what? Fine. If you want me to tell Burke I didn't move in, I'll tell him."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "No, don’t."
MEREDITH: "Don’t tell him. At least not right now, or tonight. I just mean... wait. It can wait. I lied about Derek. We're not just friends. I mean, I'm not. He's still McDreamy."

[narrating] "No matter how hard we try to ignore or deny it, eventually the lies fall away, like it or not. But here's the truth about the truth. It hurts. So we lie."


[shouting] "Cujo has to go!!"


[narrating] "As doctors, we're trained to be skeptical, because patients lie to us all the time. The rule is, every patient is a liar until proven honest. Lying is bad. Or so we are told constantly from birth. Honesty is the best policy, the truth shall set you free, I chopped down the cherry tree. Whatever. The fact is, lying is a necessity. We lie to ourselves because the truth... the truth freaking hurts."


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.


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."
