Meredith: I was going to tell you and then your mother died and then I just couldn't. I didn't want to hurt you and Nathan didn't want to hurt you
Maggie: No, this isn't about Nathan, it's you. I trusted you, to be honest with me. When you and my mother lied to me and now she's dead.

Maggie: Did you join the mile high club? Is he a good kisser?
Alex: Maybe I should go.
Maggie: Why? You probably already know.

What is so mesmerizing that you can't do your...oh, are those worms?!

You're about to deworm me. No one is ever touching me again.

Mary

Stop saying worms!

Jackson: Hey, I couldn't make the press conference, did I miss anything?
Maggie: Yeah. I learned a lot.

Meredith: I'm going to make the time to talk to Maggie today.
Nathan: Just make me the bad guy. Tell her it was all me.

Their marriage is not your lane. Your lane is here with me. Stay in it.

I don't even know how it got this far.

Meredith: You're better than this. You're stronger.
Amelia: Don't make this all your fault. I know you. That's what you do. But, please. Please don't do that.
Maggie: We can't just give up, not after all this time. We have to stand together. We have to fight.
Meredith: Because it's just us now. There were five of us, and now it's just you and I. And it can't be just me. It can't be. I will go down swinging for you, Alex. You know I will. But that means you can't give up. You don't throw the fight. So, whatever you're doing this for... please don't.

Alex: You'll be okay.
Meredith: Me? This is about you. You think this is noble, what you're doing? It isn't. It's giving up. And it's buying into everything you've ever said about yourself, and I won't let you do it.
Alex: You'll be fine.
Meredith: You are not going to jail.
Alex: You'll be just be fine.
Meredith: Stop making this about me. Stop using me as an excuse to make yourself feel better. Of course I will be be fine. I'm always fine. Don't you know that? This is about you. You will be destroyed. Your life, your career, everything... will be finished. Who you are will be gone.

Your body hurts. Your brain becomes foggy. And you feel like you're trapped in a tunnel, when all you want is your bed. So, how do you keep going? How do you not just sit down and give up? Sometimes it's easy. Sometimes you play games in your head. You make up someone. Someone good. Whatever you need to keep you going.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
