DEREK: "It's okay."
MEREDITH: "It's not okay. You have a wife who's not easy to hate. Who's annoyingly kind and painfully smart, and currently saving my friend's life."

[narrating] "Surgeons are control freaks. With a scalpel in your hand, you feel unstoppable. There's no fear, there's no pain. You're 10 feet tall and bulletproof. And then you leave the O.R. All that perfection, that beautiful control, just falls to crap."

MEREDITH

[narrating] "A wise man once said you can have anything in life if you will sacrifice everything else for it. What he meant is nothing comes without a price. So before you go into battle, you better decide how much you're willing to lose. Too often, going after what feels good means letting go of what you know is right, and letting someone in means abandoning the walls you've spent a lifetime building. Of course, the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don't see coming, when we don't have time to come up with a strategy to pick a side or to measure the potential loss. When that happens, when the battle chooses us and not the other way around, that's when the sacrifice can turn out to be more than we can bear."

MEREDITH

[to George] "Remember the good old days? When you lived with us, when you used to tell me stuff. Like... where you live?!"

FINN: "Yeah."
MEREDITH: "That's your errand? You're birthing a horse?"
FINN: "Yeah. I guess I could have mentioned it before but, you know, I didn't want to scare you back to your knitting. You can wait back here."
MEREDITH: "Back here?"
FINN: "If you want. I mean it gets a little messy."
MEREDITH: "No, I want to birth a horse!"

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Freezing, choking, getting tongue-tied--there's a reason it happens. We lose our words because the stakes are so high and we have so much to lose. We're petrified of saying too much, or saying it wrong. When the truth is,the only wrong thing you can say is nothing at all.

Jackson

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
