CRISTINA: "Katie competes in beauty pageants."
DEREK: "I know that, but we have to save her life anyway."

MEREDITH: [about Derek] "You can't make a face, comment, or react in any way. We had sex."
CRISTINA: [about patient] "What about an aneurysm?"
MEREDITH: "No blood in the CT."
CRISTINA: "No drug use. No pregnancy. No trauma. Was he good? He looks like he’d be good. Was he any good?"

"If I hadn't taken the Hippocratic Oath, I would Kevorkian her with my bare hands."

MEREDITH

GEORGE: "So, your bypass surgery tomorrow with Dr. Burke. I hear he,s good. And after that you can have all the bacon flavored soy product you can eat."
PATIENT: "Somebody kill me now."
GEORGE: "I wish I could but... I’m a healer."

MEREDITH: "Just go to sleep."
KATIE: "I can't sleep, my head's all full."
MEREDITH: "That's called thinking. Go with it."

KATIE: "You are so lost."
MEREDITH: "I am not lost. Okay?"

CRISTINA: "That's the Nazi?"
GEORGE: "I thought the Nazi would be a man."
MEREDITH: "I thought the Nazi would be... a Nazi."
IZZIE: "Maybe it's professional jealousy. Maybe she's brilliant and they call her a Nazi because they're jealous. Maybe she's nice."
CRISTINA: "Let me guess. You're the model."

MEREDITH: "Look, I'm going to go upstairs and take a shower. Okay? And when I get back down here, you won't be here. So goodbye, um..."
DEREK: "Derek."
MEREDITH: "Derek! Right. Meredith."

MEREDITH: "You know, we don’t have to do the thing."
DEREK: "Oh, we can do anything you want."
MEREDITH: "No, the thing... exchange the details, pretend we care..."

DEREK: "This is..."
MEREDITH: "... Humiliating. On so many levels. You have to go."
DEREK: "Why don’t you just come back down here and we’ll pick up where we left off?"

[narrating] "Sometimes reality has a way of sneaking up and biting us in the ass. And when the dam bursts, all you can do is swim. The world of pretend is a cage, not a cocoon. We can only lie to ourselves for so long. We are tired, we are scared, and denying it doesn't change the truth. Sooner or later we have to put aside our denial and face the world, head on, guns blazing... Denial. It's not just a river in Egypt. It's a freakin' ocean. So how do you keep from drowning in it?"

MEREDITH

[crying uncontrollably] "Make... make it stop, make it stop... Somebody sedate me!"
