[in flashback]
DEREK: "I'm the kind of guy you have to get to know to love."
MEREDITH: "So you're saying if I get to know you, I'll love you?"
DEREK: "That's right."
MEREDITH: "Wow, you really love yourself!"

FINN: "We never said we were exclusive..."
MEREDITH: "But you have plans..."
FINN: "I'm not saying I'm not pissed off."

MEREDITH: "Finn-"
FINN: "I said we weren't exclusive. Thats all I wanted to say... Oh, and this: I know you think you're scary and damaged. It makes you think you don't deserve good things, but you do. And Derek, he's bad for you. But me, I'm a good thing. And if this is a race, if there is a ring, my hat is in.

[to Richard] "You have to make a choice. Me... or this hospital!"

ADELE

IZZIE: I'm hard core!
ALEX: You won't last a year.

[ID'ing the body] "Yes... that's him. Denny Duquette."

MIRANDA

Four years of high school, four years of college, four years of med school. By the time we graduate we're in our late 20s and we've never done anything except go to school and think about science. Time stops. We're socially retarded. Ha, I mean, look at me, I'm in love with a guy who won't say he loves me back and here I am, in his kitchen, just hoping he comes home and notices me. I'm that girl, who sits in the back of the class and eats her hair. And Meredith, she's 17 years old, we're all 17 years old. This is high school with scalpels, Finn.

CALLIE

[in flashback]
Meredith: I have no story. I'm just a girl in a bar.
Derek: I'm just a guy in a bar.

Richard: Adele, I just need more time.
Adele: I don't have any more time to give.

I wanted to come over here this morning to tell you... But now all I want to tell you is that I'm in love with you. I've been in love with you forever. And now you have a choice to make. I want you to take all the time you need, I don't want to rush you, but I love you. Just take your time. Because when I had to make a choice... I chose wrong.

Derek

What, so all of a sudden I'm the president of people with crappy lives?

Meredith

Grey's Anatomy Season 3 Quotes

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."

[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."
