PRESTON: "You know, some do come back from this."
CRISTINA: "You know what? I’m not a civilian. I know the science here. It’s drinking time."
PRESTON: "Not yet. You have a responsibility to Meredith."
CRISTINA: "No. Uh-uh. I don’t do this stuff. You should know. I don’t go to great lengths."
PRESTON: "Well, you were there for me."
CRISTINA: "After. After I knew you were going to make it. Hey, I’m not proud. Okay, I just... I can’t. I can’t go back there. I can’t. I can’t go back there and watch her."
PRESTON: "Listen to me. This is about you and the woman you call your person. And you do know the science here. And if she dies, and you're sitting here when that happens, I can’t see you coming back from that. Come and say goodbye to your friend."

PRESTON: "There’s no change. Thought you should know."
CRISTINA: "No kidding."

ADDISON: "You know, sometimes I think what a waste it is to throw away all that history."
MARK: "I'm a flawed and I'm a... a wreck, but you... it wasn't a game."
ADDISON: "60 days. Go 60 days with no sex, no other women. You go 60 days cold turkey and maybe... I'll believe you."
MARK: "So I only have sex with you?"
ADDISON: "No. No sex with anyone. Grow up Mark. Find another way to scratch the itch."
MARK: "Say I do , you'll give us another try. A real try, the couple thing, no sneaking around, no booty calls."
ADDISON: "If you make it. Yes."
MARK: "Okay. We're on. Oh, and Addison, if I'm not having sex, neither are you."
ADDISON: "Who would I possibly be having sex with?"

ADDISON: [watching Derek] "We never had that. He never felt that way about me."
MARK: "I did."

[to Ellis] "You’ve been gone a long time. And I know you think you died when the Alzheimer’s started. I know it’s a relief to you. I know. But it doesn’t feel like a relief to me. I’m not relieved. I miss the sound of your voice. I miss talking to you. I miss you... I dyed my hair. For the ladies."

RICHARD

"Do you know what kind of miracle it is that Derek is who he is? Do you know how rare it is that someone like him even exists? He's still an optimist! He still believes in true love and magic and soulmates. He's waiting for you. And if you don't come back from this, you will change who he is."

DENNY

"Try again!"

CRISTINA

"Meredith... you are anything but ordinary."

ELLIS

"Meredith... This is not your brain on drugs. This is death. You are dead. You are really freaking dead. You're dirt nap dead. No more 'you' dead."

DYLAN

[narrating] "At the end of a day like this, when so many prayers are answered and so many aren’t, we take our miracles where we find them. We reach across the gap and sometimes, against all odds, against all logic, we touch."

MEREDITH

MEREDITH: "You watch me take a bath?"
DENNY: "I don't watch women in the tub. I wish I could watch women... We know things, okay?

"I dunno... it's just... Meredith always makes me think screwed up people have a chance."

ALEX

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."
