Miracles... they happen to people.

April

It's just you. The one you can count on, and lean on, and depend on. It has to be you. And once you figure that out, that's when being alone becomes a choice.

Meredith

Feels weird to sleep alone. I'm not used to it. I don't know why. He used to go away all the time, but this time he's gone, and I know he's gone, and the bed feels lonely. It's like, I don't know how to sleep alone.

Meredith

By the time I'm done with your tumor I'm going to be able to tell you what street this bastard grew up on and where it lost it's virginity.

Amelia

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

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.

Meredith

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)
