GEORGE: "You know, you can't say that you weren't warned. Alex has always been Alex."
MEREDITH: "You dodged a bullet, Izz. You're better off without him."
CRISTINA: "Why are you even surprised? You sleep with a snake, you get bit."
IZZIE: "Thanks, guys... for the support."

IZZIE: [about Alex] "He's unbelievable. I'm so glad I never slept with him. Which is his loss. Because I'm really good in bed. Mind blowing. Mind-blowingly good in bed."
CRISTINA: "Are you trying to seduce us?"
IZZIE: "And he sleeps with Olivia, instead of me. Olivia?!"
GEORGE: "Hey, I slept with Olivia."
IZZIE: "Well, then you both have bad taste."

GEORGE: "She just smiled at me!"
IZZIE: "A, this is not a competition. And B? My quint kicks your quints' asses."

[narrating] "Forty years ago, the Beatles asked the world a question. They wanted to know where all the lonely people came from. My theory is that a great many of the lonely people come from hospitals. More precisely, the surgical wing of hospitals. As surgeons, we ignore our own needs so we can meet our patients' needs. We ignore our friends and families so we can save other people's friends and families. Which means that, at the end of the day, all we really have is ourselves. And nothing in this world can make you feel more alone than that."

STEVE: "Hey, maybe when I get out of here, we could..."
MEREDITH: "I don't think so. You know, when I saw you at Joe's, I was just looking for a replacement. Looking for something to make me feel better. You deserve better than that."

[to Derek] "We're okay, right?"

ADDISON

DEREK: "Doesn't look like there's any nerve damage. There shouldn't be any long-term effect. I'd wait a few weeks before I tested it out, though."
MEREDITH: "Funny. You're a funny man."
DEREK: "I just didn't know you two were dating."
MEREDITH: "You knew it would happen eventually."
DEREK: "Eventually feels a lot different than actually."
MEREDITH: "Yeah, I guess it does."
DEREK: "It's surprisingly painful."
MEREDITH: "It gets better."
DEREK: "Does it?"

[to Mer] "I heard you broke his penis. Nice!"

ALEX

"I was staring at the ceiling in abject horror."

MEREDITH

[shows Preston her apartment] "This is where I live. My mother decorated it. I don't do laundry, I buy new underwear. The table? Six months of magazines I know I'll never read but I won't throw out. I don't wash dishes, vacuum, or put the toilet paper on the holder. I hired a maid once. She ran away crying. The only things in my fridge are water, vodka, and diet soda, and I don't care. But you do. Still think living together is a good idea?"

CRISTINA

CRISTINA: "I used the key."
PRESTON: "That's a step."
CRISTINA: "So you really want to know me?"
PRESTON: "There is nothing you can reveal about yourself that I wouldn't want to know."

[to Steve] "I met a girl there once myself. A very long time ago."

Grey's Anatomy Season 2 Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

[narrating] "A wise man once said you can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. What he meant is nothing comes without a price. So before you go into battle, you better decide how much you're willing to lose. Too often, going after what feels good means letting go of what you know is right, and letting someone in means abandoning the walls you've spent a lifetime building. Of course, the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don't see coming, when we don't have time to come up with a strategy to pick a side or to measure the potential loss. When that happens, when the battle chooses us and not the other way around, that's when the sacrifice can turn out to be more than we can bear."
