Amelia: I guess it's better than the way I did grief.
Meredith: Which time?
Amelia: The time with the Oxy binges.
Meredith: [shrugs] I go a little dark and twisty, but then I come back.
Amelia: A little dark and twisty? You disappeared. You had a secret baby.
Meredith: Please don't refer to your niece as my secret baby.

Amelia: I still don't get it. Why did Diane want to be buried here? She's not from here. It's weird.
Maggie: Maybe so she can be close, so Maggie can do this.
Amelia: What's this? What does she get out of it?
Maggie: Don't ask me.

I think about my mom's note all the time - "Tell Meredith not to..." Not to cave? Not to care? Not to give up so easily? Not to fall in love? Not to have children? Not to tell a lie? She left me wondering what to do, what not to do. She left me knowing everything was up to me, and me alone. And, she left me with no one to ask so I would decide what she meant to write. Tell Meredith not to be afraid. Goodbye, mom.


When my mother's Alzheimer's got bad, I was going through her bills and I found a notepad. Written on it were the words, "Important! Tell Meredith not to..." And, that was it. She never finished that sentence. Tell Meredith, not to what? Not to drink too much? Not to pet strange dogs? Not to give her heart away? Not to leave the sprinklers on? We didn't exactly talk a lot in those days. I regret that. I wish we had.


Meredith: She's going to need me now. For how long, I don't know.
Nathan: I know. Our timing is, I guess.

Never make yourself small for anyone. Be your own person. And try wearing a little lipstick.


Did you call about my eyelashes? You know I want to die with my eyelashes on.


Maggie: She's gonna go. I'm not ready. I'm not ready.
Meredith: You're never ready. You it. Listen to her. Talk to her about whatever she wants to talk about. Record her voice in your mind. Just keep sitting there.

I can't save anything. I could have stopped it if I had known.


Richard: Are you alright?
Maggie: No. No. I just wish my dad was here.

I don't want to die.


When I die, she needs to know that she did everything she could.


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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

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."
