George: Dr. Bailey, I need to tell you something.
Bailey: Not now O'Malley.
George: No, it'll be quick 'cause I gotta get to the OR to scrub in with the Chief. I think you're gonna be mad at first, but I'm about to do something important. And, I'm very sure about this decision. And, I think eventually you're gonna be proud. But you know, before that you're probably gonna be like "What did you do!" I'm... I don't mean to imitate you.
Bailey: You call that quick?
George: I joined the Army to be a trauma surgeon, I report for duty tomorrow.
Bailey: YOU DID WHAT?
George: Yeah, thats where I thought we'd start.

Cristina: Hey, what's with hugging O'Malley?
Owen: I slept. Cristina, last night I slept. For the first time, I slept.
Cristina: And, I dunno... hugging O'Malley because you slept?
Owen: Oh no, I hugged O'Malley 'cause he's got great news which I'll let him tell you. But, yeah, I guess, maybe, yeah I hugged him because I slept. And, that's because of you. Because you came with me to see my Mom, and I slept... and I slept without nightmares. That's not a small thing Cristina. That... that is everything. I can be a better man. I can be a better man for you. I hope, you know if you'll let me. I can be a better man with you. No, don't say anything. Just, think about it ok. Ok. (kisses her)

Alex: Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up...
Izzie: I have a headache.
Alex: You're up... You're up and you're talking. You talked right? Talk!
Izzie: Ow, I said I have a headache.
Alex: Page Shepherd.
Izzie: Ow.
Alex: Sorry.

Bailey: Any changes overnight?
Cristina: No.
Bailey: (pager goes off) Somebody had better go make a coffee run, you all look like hell.
George: I've gotta be in surgery in 10 minutes. Um, Mer, will you let me know?
Meredith: Yeah. We should go too. It's probably gonna be a while.
Alex: Shepherd said she'd wake up in the morning. What did he tell you? Was that all crap? What did he say?
Meredith: He said it may be a while.
Cristina: She's gonna wake up.

Will you come with me?

Owen

Bailey: You ok?
Callie: I cut off a healthy leg. I just cut it off. It was for the patients own good, but still, I feel like a butcher.
Swinder: My miracle case is on life support. I thought I had one. One miracle. I hate this job sometimes.
Callie: I don't know why we do this.
Bailey: Come on, come with me.
Callie: Ok, what are we doing here?
Bailey: We came to see that (they look at Arizona's patient that got better)
Swinder: What?
Bailey: The joy. It comes around rarely, so rarely we forget it can happen. But that, that's why we do this. The joy.

God, it doesn't matter how good you are. Or how hard you work. You can do all the research, you can master all the latest techniques, I mean you can be the best. You can be the best surgeon in the world, but your patients are still gonna die. 'Cause the next day, or the next month, or the next year, you know they're just gonna get hit by a car. Or find a mole on their back. There's nothing you can do about it. (turns to Owen) I don't want you to die.

Cristina

Meredith: (teary) I always thought it would be me. I'd get Alzheimer's like my mother and forget everyone. Lets go to city hall tomorrow. I don't wanna spend another day not being married to you.
Derek: Ok.

Alex: Please.
Izzie: Alex.
Alex: Look, you went crazy. When Denny signed that DNR you went crazy. Is that what you want? You want me cutting LVAD's?
Izzie: No.
Alex: You wanna wreck my career? 'Cause I will, I will freakin' cut LVAD's before I let you... just... just WAIT! STOP! You don't get to quit. You don't get to quit on me. Please! Tear it up! The DNR, tear it up! (crying)
Izzie: Where your eyes are supposed to be right now, I see white sandy beaches. And there's an ocean behind your head, and there are ghosts wandering in and out. I can't live like this, and I cant live if something goes wrong in that surgery I don't want any extraordinary measures taken to keep me alive. It's not what I want. I went crazy when Denny signed the DNR because I didn't understand. I didn't understand but now I do, and I need you to understand. I don't want you to go crazy, I want you to have a brilliant career, and I hope that I get to be here for that. But, if I can't I just wanna go to the other side. I don't know what's there but it's gotta be better than hospital beds and tubes down my throat. So please, please don't cut LVAD's. Just if it comes down to it, just let me go. And right now, kiss me. Please, please just kiss me and close your eyes because the beach is so distracting.
Alex: (crying) Alright. (kisses her)

Izzie: You can do it. You can cut into my brain again.
Derek: Ok.
Izzie: You can do it, but I don't wanna end up a vegetable.
Meredith: Izzie you won't.
Izzie: No, just listen. I want the surgery right now, but if something goes wrong I don't wanna end up on a ventilator. So, I'm signing a DNR.

George: Izzie! You paged me, are you ok?
Izzie: No, I don't know what to do. I don't know if I should have the surgery. I think I'm gonna die either way. You gotta tell me what to do.
George: You know what to do.
Izzie: No I don't. I don't.
George: Yes, you do. You're just scared to do it. This back and forth is just fear. You've already made the decision. You made it. You made it the second you decided to fight this thing. Just look, look where you started. Look where you are now. I mean, now you're this incredible surgeon, and teacher. You're a doer, remember? You know exactly what you have to do.

Mark: I wasn't asking you to come see the condo. I was asking you to move in with me. If that's what you want.
Lexie: I do.
Mark: You do?
Lexie: Yeah. Not right away.
Mark: No, of course not. Like... a year.
Lexie: 10 years.
Mark: Alright, what now?
Lexie: Oh, ah, because I'll still be a resident for like 6 more years. And then I'd wanna get my practice up and running. So, how bout 7?
Mark: How bout 5 years?
Lexie: I'll still be a resident.
Mark: So... Stevens and Karev are residents. Meredith's a resident. Bailey's a resident. All married or soon to be. And happily. Or whatever.
Lexie: I'm sorry, are you asking me to... marry you?
Mark: No... Why? Would you?
Lexie: Ah, should we be having this conversation?
Mark: No. Probably not.
Lexie: Ok...

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)

We spend our whole lives worrying about the future, planning for the future, trying to predict the future, as if figuring it out will cushion the blow. But the future is always changing. The future is the home of our deepest fears and wildest hopes. But one thing is certain when it finally reveals itself. The future is never the way we imagined it.

Meredith (closing voiceover)
