PRESTON: [enters his apartment] "I am Preston Burke. I am a widely renowned cardio-thoracic surgeon. I am a professional and moreover I am a good, kind person. I am a person that cleans up after himself. I am a great cook. And you? You are an unbelievable slob. A slovenly, angry intern. I am Preston Burke. And you... are the most competitive, guarded, stubborn... the most challenging person I have ever met. And I love you. Why the hell won't you just let me?
CRISTINA: "I gave up my apartment 20 minutes ago."
PRESTON: [pauses] "Well, alright then."

MARK: [walks into the bar] "Is this seat taken?"
MEREDITH: [pauses] "I guess not."
MARK: [sits] "You look sad."
MEREDITH: "I just saw my father for the first time in 20 years."
MARK: "How’d that go?
MEREDITH: "It could have gone better. What’re you still doing here?"
MARK: "I'm hoping Addison shows up."
MEREDITH: "You're still in love with her?"
MARK: "You're still in love with Derek."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "She won't show, you know."
MARK: "No?"
MEREDITH: "He’s not the kind of guy you leave if you can help it."
MARK: "But what if you're wrong? Just this once, what if life comes down on the side of the dirty mistresses?"

[narrating] "I've heard that it’s possible to grow up, I've just never met anyone who’s actually done it. Without parents to defy, we break the rules we make for ourselves. We throw tantrums when things don’t go our way. We whisper secrets with our best friend, in the dark. We look for comfort where we can find it. And we hope against all logic, against all experience, like children, we never give up hope."


DENNY: "Hey."
IZZIE: "Hey."
DENNY: "Do you believe in karma?"
IZZIE: "Actually, I do."
DENNY: "I think you might be mine."
IZZIE: "Well then you must have been very very good to deserve me."

RICHARD: "I see you in there."
MIRANDA: "No, you don’t."
RICHARD: "Your husband was discharged over an hour ago."
MIRANDA: "I'm not here."
RICHARD: "Go home. You're not working today. You're on maternity leave."
MIRANDA: [shuts door] "Exactly!"

CRISTINA: [referring to George] "What is with him?"
ALEX: "Okay, 50 bucks O'Malley caught her doing McDreamy."
IZZIE: "McDreamy?"
ALEX: "Did I just call the dude McDreamy?"
CRISTINA: "Oh, you know you did."
ALEX: [to Izzie] "You are ruining my life."

[to Meredith, George] "What? So I slept with him again. So I'm a big whore. A big horny whore who can't get enough. Can we get over the shocked silence already?"


CALLIE: "George"
CALLIE: "You didn’t call me."
GEORGE: No I did. I did, a few times. I just hung up every time."
CALLIE: "Nice, George. Very stalker-like."

DENNY: "Hey. Don’t you have somewhere to be?"
IZZIE: "Yeah. Yeah I do. I’m there."
DENNY: [smiles] "Good."

[corners George in elevator] "You’re trapped. You you don’t have to talk. I’ll do the talking, George. I am truly, very deeply sorry. I’m not going to make excuses, I’m just sorry. Look... I know you’re going to get off this elevator and walk away and not look back. But George, we're friends, real friends. And that means, no matter how long it takes, when you finally do decide to look back, I’ll still be here."


[to Cristina] "Are you afraid Burke will realize George makes a better girlfriend than you?"


"It takes two to make a stupid sexual decision, you know."


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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