ADDISON: "Are you sad? Depressed? What? It's Christmas, Derek. We love Christmas. Or at least we used to."
DEREK: [pauses] "I'm not saying this to hurt you, or because I want to leave you, because I don't. Meredith wasn't a fling. She wasn't revenge. I fell in love with her. That doesn't go away because I decided to stay with you."

ADDISON: "Why did you bring a trout into the trailer?"
DEREK: "This is dinner!"
ADDISON: "I hate this freaking trailer!"
DEREK: "Fine then. No trout for you."
ADDISON: [broods silently]
DEREK: "Okay, I'll cook the trout outside the trailer."
ADDISON: "I still hate the freaking trailer."

IZZIE: [to Meredith, about Addison] "Well, if it makes you feel any better, I take issue with the salmon scrubs. I mean what self-respecting surgeon wears salmon-colored scrubs?"
MEREDITH: [smiles] "This is what I'm saying."

[narrating] "Nobody likes to lose control, but as a surgeon there's nothing worse. It's a sign of weakness, of not being up to the task. Still there are times when it just gets away from you, when the world stops spinning, when you realize your shiny little scalpel isn't gonna save you. No matter how hard you fight it, you fall. It's scary as hell. Except there's an upside to the free fall. It's the chance you give your friends to catch you."

IZZIE: "We need to talk."
ALEX: "Why?"
IZZIE: "You kissed me."
ALEX: "Yes, I did."
IZZIE: "Should we... I mean, there's a discussion that we could have... if you wanted to have one?"
ALEX: "Look. Izzie. I kissed you, with tongue, and I plan to do it again and again. So get used to it. End of discussion.
IZZIE: [blushes] "Okay."

MEREDITH: "So that's it? Was that what I was to you? The girl you screwed to get over being screwed?"
DEREK: "You were like coming up for fresh air. It's like I was drowning and you saved me. That's all I know."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "That's not good enough."

"Denial is not just a river in Egypt. It's a freakin' ocean."

GEORGE: "A shift is a marathon, not a sprint. Eat."
IZZIE: "I can't."
GEORGE: "You should eat something."
IZZIE: "You try eating after performing 17 rectal exams. The Nazi hates me."
GEORGE: "The Nazi's a resident. I have attendings hating me."

[narrating] "I wish there were a rulebook for intimacy. Some kind of guide to tell you when you've crossed the line. It would be nice if you could see it coming, and I don't know how you fit it on a map. You take it where you can get it, and keep it as long as you can. As for rules, maybe there are none. Maybe the rules of intimacy are something we have to define for ourselves."
