Alex: The fact that you were checking your texts while you were doing it is already sad.
Meredith: We have a special ring tone. Hey you want a special ring tone?
Alex: No.

Meredith: I'm going to miss you.
Derek: This can work. We can make this work. We will.

When shock wears off, when the body can accept that a trauma has happened, when it can let down its defenses, it's a scary moment. It's vulnerable. The shock response had protected us, and it just might have saved us.

Meredith

You're a really good mom. You've been riding me all day, making sure I don't screw up. Crap, you've been doing it all these years. It sucks. It's annoying, but it's nice.

Alex

I need a person who is in it with me and believes in that.

Meredith

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

It's pushing through. It's what we do.

Amelia

Sorry, kale rage going on.

Bailey

Amelia: I know I'm a risk.
Owen: We're all a risk. We all have something.

We're all related through sex. We have sexual relations. That is horribly weird.

Callie

Bailey: I saw you do it in the OR, Dr. Badass.
Jo: Oh my, God! You have a problem.

Meredith: I was raised as an only child. I'm historically lousy at being a sister.
Amelia: You're here right now. It's good enough.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

The first time I kissed my wife, she wasn't my wife then, she was just this girl in a bar. But when we kissed, it was like, I gotta tell you, it was like I'd never kissed any other woman before. It was like my first kiss. The right kiss.

Derek

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."
