Meredith Grey Quotes
DEREK: "You should come visit! The dog, I mean."
MEREDITH: [smiles] "Uh huh. Bye!"
[to Richard] "She lights up when you're around. She's alive. Keep visiting. I can't... I don't... I don't want my mother to die alone."
[narrating] "In general, lines are there for a reason. For security, for clarity. If you choose to cross the line, you pretty much do so at your own risk. So why is it that the bigger the line, the greater the temptation to cross it? We cant help ourselves. When we see a line we want to cross it. Maybe itâ€™s the thrill of the unfamiliar, a sort of personal dare. The only problem is once that youâ€™ve crossed, itâ€™s almost impossible to go back. But, if you do manage to make it back across the line, you find safety in numbers."
MEREDITH: "Stop it."
MEREDITH: "Stop looking at me like I'm a patient."
DYLAN: "I'm sorry?"
MEREDITH: "The two of you are looking at me the way we look at patients. Like Iâ€™m gonna freak out at any minute. Well, I'm not going to freak out, so whatever it is, just tell me straight up."
PRESTON: [pauses] "The main oxygen line runs directly under this floor."
MEREDITH: "Okay. Not okay." [silence] "Well, I need one of you to tell me what this means exactly. Because I think I know what it means, but I tend to be glass half-empty these days, so I donâ€™t trust what I think it means. Because what I think it means is that if the bomb were to explode over the oxygen line, the whole hospital could blow up. Thatâ€™s just crazy right?"
MEREDITH: "Tell me something."
MEREDITH: "Cristina. I have my hand on a bomb, Iâ€™m freaking out, and most importantly, I really have to pee. Just please tell me anything."
CRISTINA: "He told me he loved me. Last night. He thought I was sleeping, but I heard him say it."
MEREDITH: "Burke loves you."
CRISTINA: [to Dylan] "Mind your own business."
MEREDITH: "He loves you!"
CRISTINA: "Yeah. everybody has problems."
MEREDITH: "Well are you gonna say it back?"
CRISTINA: "Of course not! He didnâ€™t say it to me, he said it to sleeping me! Reciprocity is not required. Besides, he might blow up."
MEREDITH: "Excellent point."
DYLAN: "Youâ€™re doing great."
MEREDITH: "Letâ€™s go over again."
DYLAN: "Okay. The device is shaped like a rocket. It's eight inches long. Weâ€™re going to have everything ready. Dr. Burke's team is going to be in place. My team is going to be in place. Then when I ask you to take the hand that you have in Mr. Carlson, wrap it around the device -"
MEREDITH: "And I pull it out."
DYLAN: "Level. Pull it out while keeping it level."
MEREDITH: "You know I donâ€™t like you very much."
DYLAN: "I don't like you either."
MEREDITH: [with her hand on the bomb, in the patient] "Is this the strangest thing thatâ€™s ever happened in your O.R.?"
PRESTON: "I would have to say it is."
MEREDITH: "Good, because I'm very competitive."
PRESTON: [smiles] "The very best surgeons always are."
[narrating] "In hospitals, they say you know when youâ€™re going to die. Some doctors say itâ€™s a look patients get in their eyes. Some say thereâ€™s a scent, a certain smell. Some say itâ€™s some kind of sixth sense. When the great beyond is headed for you, you feel it coming. If today were your last day on Earth? How would you spend it?"
CRISTINA: [to George in dream sequence] "You're smarter than me and have great hair."
MEREDITH: [to George in dream sequence] "I'm in love with you, George. I always have been, and I always will be."
IZZIE: [back to reality] "George, if you keeping clogging up the toilet, you're gonna have to learn how to use a plunger or we're going to make you crap in the yard."
[after placing her hand on the bomb inside the patient] "What did I do... what did I do... what did I do... what did I do?"
CRISTINA: "Get out of bed, we're gonna be late."
MEREDITH: "I have a feeling."
CRISTINA: "You have a feeling?"
CRISTINA: "What kind of feeling?"
MEREDITH: "Like I might die."
CRISTINA: "Today? Tomorrow? In 50 years? We're all going to die eventually. Now we're late! Let's go!"
MEREDITH: "Oh Cristina, c'mon!"
CRISTINA: "What? I'm being supportive."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, this is me being totally supportive. Go on."
MEREDITH: "Okay. The man I love has a wife and then he chooses her over me. Then the wife takes my dog. Well, she didn't actually take my dog. I gave it to her. But I didn't mean to give it to her, I meant to give it to him, and that doesn't change the fact that she's got Derek. And my McDog. She's got my McLife! What have I got? I can't even remember the last time we kissed. Because you never think the last time is the last time. You think you have forever, but you don't. Plus my conditioner decided to stop working and I think I have brittle bones. I need something to happen. I just need a sign. I need a reason to go on. I need some hope, and in the absence of hope, I need to stay in bed and feel like I might die today."
CRISTINA: [pauses, then drags Meredith out of bed] "Whatever. Everybody has problems. Get your ass out of bed and get to work. NOW! Move, move, move!"
PRESTON: [to Meredith] "Dr. Grey, I want you to walk out of this room. Walk. Do not run. Go and tell the charge nurse that we have a Code Black."
MEREDITH: "I'm sorry, a Code Black?"
PRESTON: "Code. Black. Tell him that I am sure, and then tell him to call the bomb squad."
