A surgeon must always be prepared to lose, and in neurosurgery, with the big tumors, we lose those battles as often as we succeed. The key though, win or lose, is to never fail, and the only way to fail is not to fight. So you fight until you can't fight anymore.

Amelia

Dr: Herman: I wanted to break new ground. I wanted to leave a legacy. I wanted my life, my brain, my existence to mean something. The thing I never really thought about though, the thing I never really wrapped my brain about until now was in order to do that, in order to be remembered, in order to leave something significant behind, you have to leave.

This is history. This surgery is history. How could I not be excited about that?

Amelia

This tumor is fierce, intimidating and aggressive, but so am I.

Amelia

Charming, isn't it? They put clouds on the ceiling to distract you. The least they could do is put up something interesting like porn.

Dr. Herman

My life is so much better now that I have nothing. I can't recommend a tumor, but you should try it.

Dr. Herman

It's her song. So, get off the stage and let her sing it.

Bailey

Residents gone wild!

Dr. Herman

He squeezed my finger and then he let go.

If you aren't willing to keep looking for light in the darkest of places without stopping even when it seems impossible, you will never succeed.

Amelia

Do you believe in God? It's okay, you can believe for the two of you. You have lost somebody, and you are hurting, but you will get through this. You can survive this. You are strong. It's okay. You are going to be okay, I promise.

April

God, I don't know if you're out there or not, or if you can even hear people that don't know you're out there, or if you give a crap about what they say, but God, Yahweh, ET, Buddah, whatever... April knows. She knows, right? She believes and she needs you, so show up for her? Please? Show up for April. She loves you. She needs you. Please, show up for her. Please.

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.
