Grey's Anatomy: Farewell Tribute to Arizona Robbins

at . Comments

Arizona first appeared on the series on Grey's Anatomy Season 5 Episode 11, and she officially became a series regular for Grey's Anatomy Season 6. She will depart the series on Grey's Anatomy Season 14 Episode 24 after having been on the series for a decade. 

Arizona was first introduced on the show as Seattle Grace's Chief of Pediatrics. She also happened to be the series' first lesbian character. It was a milestone when the openly gay woman came onto the scene and stole Callie's heart. 

The breadth of Arizona serving as representation didn't stop there. When she experienced a severe accident that cost her one of her legs, she became the first disabled series regular. Her journey tapped into an experience that so few saw on television. 

She's sunny, warm, fierce, and known for being one of the best friends. Her bubbly demeanor even endeared the likes of Alex Karev, a notorious grouch, whom she took under her wing and groomed to be a world-class Peds surgeon.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.

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.
