Meredith: He's done this before.
Maggie: What?
Meredith: Moved to a new city, got a new job, ignored his wife's calls, met a girl, fell in love, started over.
Callie: Wait, what are you talking about, "met a girl"?
Meredith: Me. He met me. He left Addison when the marriage got hard, moved to Seattle, met me in a bar. What if he's doing the same thing now?

You're [Callie] right. Godspeed. Go kiss everyone.


Jackson: What is the matter?
April: What's the matter is that you keep holding me like this delicate flower that's gonna break every time you look at me. That is what is the matter.

Meredith: She was perky, and she sounded happy and tall with a lot of great hair.
Alex: You saw her? How did you see her?
Meredith: I didn't. I heard her voice. Her perky, happy, tall voice.
Maggie: I hate voices like that.
Alex: You can tell by the voice?

Life's too short to be scared. So, screw the gap. Let Ethan razz your berries, goose your gander, tickle your tail feathers, cup your coconuts, rock your rump, poke your hontas, wallop your wonderland!


Jackson: You might get an invite from me to join the plastics posse.
Ben: You think that sounds cool?
Jackson: I did not at first, but it grows on you.

The point is, I'm going to get to figure it out. Something is going to happen next. The point is, I'm alive, and I wouldn't be if you hadn't been such a pain in my ass.

Amelia: Damn it!
Meredith: I just got here, I haven't had a chance to screw anything up yet.

Bailey: I held him in my hands. He's not even born and I held him in my hands.
Arizona: I know that feeling. It's privilege. Great privilege.

Maybe you'll get lucky and you'll snip out the part that makes her kinda bitchy.


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.


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.

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.
