Alex: Admit it. Her being around your guy bugs.
Meredith: Okay. It bugs a little.

Patients see us as gods or they see us as monsters. But the fact is, we're just people. We screw up, we lose our way. Even the best of us, have our off days. Still we move forward. We don't rest on all the rules or celebrate the lives we've saved in the past. Because there's always some other patient that needs our help. So we force ourselves to keep trying, to keep learning. In the hope that, maybe someday we'll just come a little bit closer to the gods our patients need us to be.

Meredith (narrating)

There's this thing that happens when people find out you're a doctor. They stop seeing you as a person and begin to see you something bigger than you are. They have to see us that way, as gods, otherwise we're just like everyone else, unsure, flawed, normal. So we act strong, we remain stoic. We hide the fact that we're all too human.

Meredith (narrating)

Meredith: We're not 25, sleeping our way through Europe anymore.
Sadie: We could though. Think about it. We could get on a plane tonight, we could...
Meredith: No. NO! I can't. I have to work. I can't just...
Sadie: Wow... You know they've sucked the life right out of you. The Meredith I used to know...
Meredith: Is right here. I'm here. I just don't wanna sleep my way through Europe anymore. I wanna be here. I wanna be here!

Meredith: What happened?
Sadie: I quit. O'malley's a little narc. I'd rather be deemed a quitter than a cheater.
Meredith: Did you cheat your way into the program?
Sadie: I said I'm not book smart. You know that. I learn on my feet. I thought if I came to where you were, we... you could...
Meredith: Pull you through?
Sadie: We've seen each other through a lot.

Meredith: What's wrong with her?
Cristina: Well, she calls her Dad "Daddy."
Meredith: No. What's wrong with her? Why is she in the hospital?
Cristina: Oh, she isn't. Daddy is.
Meredith: Hey, you know you should ask Owen if he plays the guitar.

Meredith: I didn't even know Addison had a brother. I mean, you'd think Derek would have said something at some point. Or sang something, while he played his guitar.
Cristina: Speak English.
Meredith: Well, Derek used to play the guitar.
Cristina: Oh. Owen's ex fiance is in the hospital. Mmm... his ex-fiance he never told me about.

Meredith: You know Addison's brother probably isn't going to make it. His cysts are inoperable.
Cristina: Worms in the brain. Not how you wanna go.

Sam: I met, uh, Meredith.
Derek: Uh huh. She's not a midlife crisis. She's the real thing.
Sam: That's great. I'm happy for you man. I'm happy for you.
Derek: Yep. I should have called.
Sam: No...
Derek: I should have stayed in touch. It's my fault.
Sam: Hey, people move, they change. You know, we all do.

Sam: Your wife's in the chapel praying.
Derek: She's not my wife, and she doesn't pray.
Sam: Hey.
Derek: How are ya?
Sam: You know, mid life crisis. I got an earring... I got an earring, but I let the hole close up the very next day.
Derek: That would've... Would've been a very good look on you.

Meredith: He had all these friends. They sang, and they played guitar. It's almost like he was a totally different person.
Cristina: Well he was.
Meredith: It kinda freaks me out a little bit. I feel like I don't know him.
Cristina: Well, I don't know Owen. We don't. We don't know them.

Addison: Okay. I need to be distracted. Someone talk about something other than what's going on with my brother right now.
Callie: Er, Mark is good at talking about himself.

Grey's Anatomy Season 5 Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
