I am a sci-fi loving African-American woman in her 40’s with a stubborn husband, a beautiful son, and no pets because they smell like feet. And I have a big job, where I do big, lifesaving, miracle-working things - where I lead others so that they can do their big, lifesaving, miracle-working thing. And, yes, I have obsessive-compulsive disorder. I am not ashamed of that. But it’s not my story. It’s just one piece. And if you continue to look at just that one piece, if you check the mental illness box and refuse to look at anything else, then I’m not gonna live long enough to finish the rest of my story

Miranda Voiceover: It’s not about whether you spend your life in a boardroom, your bedroom, or on a beach with a Mai Tai in Maui. When you look back on your life, the only thing that matters is: Did you spend it doing what you love? With the people you love? Were you happy? Did you make the most of this beautiful, terrifying, messed-up life? Did you let go of all the things that held you back? So you can hold on to what matters most?

Miranda: I'm hurt mom. I got hurt. I had a heart attack. But I'm okay. I had a surgery, and it's okay.
Miranda's Mom: I know you are. You're my Mandy.

Life is too precious to waste doing anything less than what makes us happy.

Ben: I thought I lost you.
Miranda: Not a chance.
Ben: You call me.
Miranda: I know.
Ben: You. Call. Me.

I am not upset. I am furious, and I am grateful. I'm grateful that Dr. Bailey fought for herself like she fights for her patient's every day, and I am furious that she had to.

Maggie: Are you OK?
Richard: I'll be OK when she's OK.

Richard: We're always so busy running around checking on everyone else. Maybe we need to check in on each other once in a while.
Maggie: Oh my God, are you dying?

Why is it that men only listen to women after they've done something wrong?

Miranda

My secret heart doesn't need fixing. My actual heart needs fixing.
