"I came here to be chief. Meredith complicates that."

DEREK

[narrating] "A patient's history is as important as their symptoms. It's what helps us decide if heart burn's a heart attack... if a headache's a tumor. Sometimes patients will try to re-write their own histories. They'll claim they don't smoke, or forget to mention certain drugs... which in surgery can be the kiss of death. We can ignore it all we want, but our history eventually always comes back to haunt us."

MEREDITH

DEREK: "Dr. Colin Marlow."
PRESTON: "The one and only."

DEREK: "Dr. Marlow, Derek Shepherd, neuro. I'm doing a sigal sinus bypass today if you'd like to observe."
COLIN: "Really, that's quite a procedure."

COLIN: "If you gentlemen are trying to intimidate the competition, it's working."
DEREK: "Good."
COLIN: "I'll see both of you in surgeries."

DEREK: "He slept with Christina?"

DEREK: "Oh, right, sorry, okay. Um... have dinner at your house. It’s your place, I’ll come. I’ll be your wingman. It’ll be fun. Okay, it won’t be fun. It’ll be fine. They’re your family."
MEREDITH: "Why does everyone assume that?"
DEREK: "Because you deserve to have a family. Even if you don’t like them."

GEORGE: "C'mon! She's Izzie! She's blonde. She's stacked. She's a supermodel. And I'm... I mean, I'm George."
CALLIE: [pauses] "So what does that make me?"

CRISTINA: "Do you remember all the other times I’ve spoken to you about my sex life?"
IZZIE: "No..."
CRISTINA: "Exactly."

IZZIE: "So were there any little blue pills involved, or is he untouched by the miracle of time?"
ALEX: "Dude, that's just wrong, don't answer that."
IZZIE: "C'mon, he's not a young man. He wasn't getting a little help? Popping the pill? Dad's best friend? C'mon, you're going to give me nothing after everything we've been through? Nothing?"
CRISTINA: "It's a miracle drug. And someday it's going to save your life."

IZZIE: "You need to bond with your people. People are what matters."
MEREDITH: "I hate people."

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."
