GEORGE: [watches Mer's hookup run out of house] "He's new."
IZZIE: "And I shall name him: Running Guy."

[about Mer's hookup] "Who was it this time? Hairy Back Guy?"


[narrating] "When you're a kid, it's Halloween candy. You hide it from your parents and you eat it until you get sick. In college, it's the heavy combo of youth, tequila and well... you know. As a surgeon, you take as much of the good as you can get because it doesn't come around nearly as often as it should. Because good things aren't always what they seem. Too much of anything, even love, is not always a good thing."


[to Preston] "So this is... where you live?"


MEREDITH: "You're going through his stuff, aren't you?"
CRISTINA: "There's no stuff to go through. It's a freak show. I mean, you can do surgery in here. Oh, and he arranges his books using the Dewey Decimal System! Mer, I'm scared."
MEREDITH: "Get out, get out of the house! Now."

"When I get back, you won't be here, so... goodbye... Steve."


GEORGE: "Last month I performed open heart surgery in the elevator. All by myself."
GEORGE'S DAD: "Really?"
GEORGE: "Really."
GEORGE'S DAD: [pauses] "That's something. That's really something!"

[narrating] "Maybe we're not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we're thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we're thankful for the things we'll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate."


MIRANDA: "You are a surgical junkie. Go home!"
RICHARD: "Adele is already mad. I'm in trouble no matter what ... and there's a wipple happening in OR2."
MIRANDA: "Go home, right now!"
RICHARD: [walking away] "You know this kind of treatment is the reason they call you the Nazi!"
MIRANDA: [smiles] "Happy Thanksgiving."

GEORGE: "Today I committed bird murder and I was forced to touch my dad's ass. I get bonus points for showing up at all."
CRISTINA: "I brought booze."

"Derek, are you done hurting me back? Because, if not, I need to special order a thicker skin."


"You treat us like we're stupid. And maybe we are. But we're your family. Give us an inch, Georgey. Every once in a while? Pick a car."


Grey's Anatomy Season 2 Quotes

DEREK: "Come on, have a drink."
MEREDITH: "I can't have a drink, I'm celibate."
JOE: "You mean sober? She means sober."
MEREDITH: "No, I mean celibate. I'm practicing celibacy. Drinking does not go well with celibacy because it makes everything and everyone seem kind of porn-y. Then my head gets all cloudy and the next thing you know I'm naked. My point is that I'm celibate, and knitting is good for surgical dexterity, so I'm making a sweater."
DEREK: "You? Celibate? I don't buy it."
MEREDITH: "No more men."
ADDISON: "No more men? Really? You? I'm just asking, because we're friends."
Meredith: Every guy I meet turns out to be married.
DEREK: "Oh... ouch."
MEREDITH: "Or Mark."
ADDISON: [walks away] "Okay, I'm going to sit over there now."
MEREDITH: "Sorry. Or, remember the horrible thing I did? Remember George?"
DEREK: "You're making a sweater."
MEREDITH: "I'm making a sweater."

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."
