That was hell. Actual physical hell.

Meredith

[narrating] Yes or no. In or out. Up or down. Live or die. Hero or coward. Fight or give in. I'll say it again to make sure you hear me. The human life is made up of choices. Live or die. That's the important choice. And it's not always in our hands.

Derek

The only thing between you and the rest of your career is a test in a random hotel in a random city with a random examiner asking you random questions. Nervous? You should be.

Well, Dr. Bailey did save your life today. A black woman saved your life, at a great personal cost. So maybe next time you're looking at your tattoo and you're thinking how much better all these white guys are better than everyone else. You might wanna think about that. Cause between you and me, if I had been alone in that O.R., you would probably be dead right now. And since we are sharing belief systems, I believe that if you were dead, the world would be a better place.

If anyone's going to have a baby with two heads, three arms, and eleven toes, it's me.

Work keeps our mind active. It keeps us out of trouble. When we're not working, our hands are idle. And the devil will find work for idle hands to do.

Meredith: You pulled a sleeping baby out of daycare to do your dirty work. You're disgusting!
Derek: He's got his mother's sparkle.

GEORGE: "Okay, I'll be Cristina for you, if you'll be Izzie for me."
MEREDITH: "Deal. Derek had a woman in his trailer last night. She was ugly, very ugly, except she was tall and beautiful. And he was naked.
GEORGE: "Oh. McDreamy was doing the McNasty with McHottie? That McBastard. Uh, how was that?
MEREDITH: "That was good."
GEORGE: "Really?"
MEREDITH: "Yeah."
GEORGE: "Excellent."
MEREDITH: "Okay. Chanelling Izzie. Go."
GEORGE: "Okay. Um, Callie... she won't forgive me. Uh, she won't talk to me. She dumped me. Which is, uh, I don't care about, you know, at all..."
MEREDITH: "Good, because you deserve better. You do. I mean... You. Are. George. I mean seriously. Seriously. Seriously! Was that Izzie optimistic?
GEORGE: [pauses] "Yes, it's very Izzie."

Jo: I need an ultrasound.
Meredith: Are you pregnant? Does Alex know?

I'm bulletproof.

Can two people really be meant to be?

Meredith

Our intentions are always pure. We always want to do what is right, but we also have the drive to push boundaries. So we're in danger of taking things to far. We're told to do no harm while we're trained to cut you open with a knife. So when we do things when we should have left well enough alone. Because its hard to admit when there's no problem to treat, to let it alone before we make it so much worse. Because we cause terrible damage.

Grey's Anatomy 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."

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.
