SUSAN: "You know, I’d really just love to talk with you. I would love to find the time for me and you to sit down –"
MEREDITH: "I’m sorry. This is too much. Way too much. You keep showing up. I cannot be your daughter, or your charity case, or the thing that you need to fix."
SUSAN: "I’m not trying to –"
MEREDITH: "No, no. Stop talking, okay? Stop mothering. Just stop."

MIRANDA: "When you see her, you’ll know what to do. It must be nice to know she has parents like this, that fight for her, think about what she wants, trying to make her happy, like you would. Doesn’t mean you don’t want that girl to want you."
IZZIE: "Yeah."

[to Izzie] "What you did today... you should be proud. I’ll get orderly to take you downstairs, but I have to go. Understand?"

GEORGE

"Hannah. An 11 year old girl. That’s the private matter. She’s mine. Don’t. Don’t look at me. My mother wanted me to keep her, but I knew, even at 16 I knew, that baby deserved better than life at Chehalis Trailer Park."

IZZIE

DEREK: "You warned me she could become a problem."
MIRANDA: "Who, Meredith?"
DEREK: "You know when you love somebody, you think you can handle it all?"
MIRANDA: "You’ve done alright, both of you."

[to Derek] "Huh. Well if this turns into an “either or,” you pick the person you love. End of story. Look, all of this means nothing if you’re alone."

MIRANDA

JANE DOE: "Those are supposed to be my people. I belong with them, Alex. I’m supposed to go, with them."
ALEX: "Your people, we don’t even know who they are yet."
JANE DOE: "You don’t want to find them! You want to keep me all to yourself. Well, here I am! Your pathetic, captive audience. Isn’t is sad that I’m the best you can do?!"
ALEX: "Ava..."
JANE DOE: "My name is not Ava! You made it up! It’s not me! Get out. Get out!!"

JANE DOE: "So, you and the redhead gonna let me go home? Or are you too busy making eyes at each other to even ask?" ALEX: [silent]
JANE DOE: "What?"
ALEX: "Ava..."
JANE DOE: "No. It’s Shannon."
ALEX: "Listen..."
JANE DOE: "My name is Shannon. Shannon Marie."
ALEX: "I’m sorry."

RICHARD: "Sloan. You brought me to a bar. You know I don’t drink."
MARK: "Which is perfect. Better to keep your mind sharp. Let the ladies do the drinking."

SUSAN: "It’s freezing out here and I’ve been working myself up to saying this, well for a while now. So I need you to let me in now, please. (she comes inside) It’s my fault your father didn’t fight harder for you. I knew about you. I could have pushed him to be a part of your life. I should have pushed him. You were a child. We were the adults. But we were just married and it was new and… that’s what I cared about. And I know the groceries and everything are a little much, but that’s just what I do. I mean, quit lookin’ at me like I’m crazy. ‘Cause that’s not fair. I’m just tryin’ to find a way to be there for you, the only way that I know how. And if you can’t accept that, then fine. Just stop being so rude. And I…ok, I’m overstepping again, aren’t I?"
MEREDITH: "As mothers go, I’ve only ever known overbearing, never overprotective. This is all new. It’s ok."
SUSAN: "It is?"
MEREDITH: "Yes."

MEREDITH: "Seriously."
SUSAN: "Okay, that stops right now."
MEREDITH: "It’s just, I’m waiting for Derek, and I’m very tired."
SUSAN: "I don’t care. Let me in."
MEREDITH: "Excuse me!"

RICHARD: "Addison, I wouldn’t know where to start."
ADDISON: "Ask me to dance."
RICHARD: "Well, there’s no dance floor."
ADDISON: "So? Ask me anyway."

Grey's Anatomy Season 3 Quotes

[narrating] "Too often, the thing you want most is the one thing you can't have. Desire leaves us heartbroken, it wears us out. Desire can wreck your life. But as tough as wanting something can be. The people who suffer the most, are those who don't know what they want."

MEREDITH

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."
