IZZIE: "George, you did good."
GEORGE: "I'm going to have to dodge Burke for the rest of my career. He could kill me and make it look like an accident."

MEREDITH: "We are SO going to hell. Burke's sending us straight to hell."
CRISTINA: "On the express train."

DEREK: "You're asking for my advice? Now who’s chasing who?"
MEREDITH: "Not funny, this is important."

[to Meredith & Cristina] "This is a men's room. Either whip one out, or leave."


[to Cristina] "You do enjoy crossing the line, don't you?"


[about Izzie] "She's the Vice President of Fantasyland."


GEORGE: "Uh... Cristina? Do you... do you... does Meredith think I'm gay?"
CRISTINA: "Are you?"
CRISTINA: "Really?"
GEORGE: "I'm not gay!"

DEREK: "You make out with patients now?"
MEREDITH: "What, are you jealous?"
DEREK: "I don't get jealous."
MEREDITH: "We had sex. Once."
DEREK: "And we kissed in an elevator."
MEREDITH: "And we kissed in an elevator. Once."
DEREK: "No, seriously. Go out with me."
DEREK: "You know, I almost died today. Yeah, I came like this close. How would you feel if I died and you didn't get a chance to go out with me?"
MEREDITH: "Get over yourself already."
DEREK: "C’mon!"
MEREDITH: "It’s the chase, isn't it?"
DEREK: "What?"
MEREDITH: "The thrill of the chase. I've been wondering to myself, why are you so hell-bent on getting me to go out with you? You know you're my boss. You know it’s against the rules. You know I keep saying no. It’s the chase."
DEREK: "Well... its fun isn't it?"
MEREDITH: "You see! This is a game to you, but not to me. Because, unlike you, I still have something to prove."

VIPER: [kisses Meredith] "That was for good luck. Don't worry darling. You'll see me again."
MEREDITH: "For your sake, I hope not!"

"It's like candy, but with blood, which is so much better."


MEREDITH: "Well, you realize you're leaving against medical advice and I strongly urge you to stay."
VIPER: "The frat guy said I could go."
MEREDITH: The frat guy is an ass. You at least have to sign an AMA form."
VIPER: "Fine, I will do anything you want me to."
MEREDITH: "What is with you guys and your need to dirty everything up?"
VIPER: "I don't know. Maybe it’s the testosterone, eh?"
MEREDITH: "Maybe, you might want to see a doctor about that too."

MEREDITH: "Look, you really have to let me take you for some tests. Run a CT. You could have internal bleeding."
VIPER: "No, thank you, I’ve got a race to get back to."
MEREDITH: "Why? You can't win now anyway."
VIPER: "There’s a party at the finish line. Want to meet me there?"
MEREDITH: [smiles] "One test. A CT. I'll have you out of here in an hour."
VIPER: "Can't do it, gotta go!"

Grey's Anatomy Season 1 Quotes

[narrating] "At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out, they fence you in. Life is messy, that's how we're made. So you can waste your life drawing lines or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines that are way too dangerous to cross. Here's what I know. If you're willing to throw caution to the wind and take a chance, the view from the other side... is spectacular."


[narrating] "The early bird catches the worm; a stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we haven't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to ‘seize the day'. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore, until we finally understand for ourselves like Benjamin Franklin meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping. And that even the biggest failure, even the worst most intractable mistake beats the hell out of never trying."
