Because I'm your best friend and because I love you, if what you want is to be with her then I will do everything in my power to support you and help you make your marriage work. But because I'm your best friend and because I love you, I also have to say that I am in love with you. I'm in love with you. I can't promise a future, I can't promise perfection because we're us... and I'm me.. and who knows what will happen. But in my heart, I am sure.. I'm in love with you and I hope you're in love with me too.- Grey's Anatomy
Burke: But you don't want to do this. I'm up there waiting for you to come down that aisle, and I know you don't want to come. I know you don't want to come but that you'll come anyway because you love me. And if I loved you - if I loved you, not the woman that I'm trying to make you be, not the woman that I'm hoping you'll become - but you . If I did, I wouldn't be up there waiting for you. I'd be letting you go.
Cristina: I am wearing the dress. I'm ready. And, and maybe I didn't want to before. But I want to now. I really think I want this.
Burke: I really wish you didn't think. I wish that you knew.
I could promise to hold you, and to cherish you. I could promise to be there, in sickness and in health. I could say till death do us part. But I won't. Those vows are for optimistic couples, the ones full of hope. I do not stand here on my wedding day optimistic or full of hope. I am not optimistic. I am not hopeful. I am sure. I am steady. I'm a heart man. Take 'em apart, put 'em back together, hold them in my hands. I am a heart man. So this, I am sure. You are my partner. My lover. My very best friend. My heart. MY HEART beats for you. And on this day, the day of our wedding, I promise you this. I promise you to lay my heart in the palm of your hands, I promise you, me.- Grey's Anatomy
I'm bambi. I'm bambi, George. If anyone in this situation is a sad little cartoon character, it's me. I'm all alone in the forest, all alone in the fores. And my mother's been shot by a hunter and where are you? Where the hell are you?- Grey's Anatomy
Change; we don't like it, we fear it, but we can't stop it from coming. We either adapt to change or we get left behind. And it hurts to grow, anybody who tells you it doesn't is lying. But heres the truth: the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes change is good. Oh, sometimes change is everything.- Grey's Anatomy
There comes a point in your life when you're officially an adult. Suddenly, you're old enough to vote, drink, and engage in other adult activities. Suddenly, people expect you to be responsible, serious... a grown up. We get taller, we get older. But do we ever really grow up?- Grey's Anatomy
It goes away. The feeling. That feeling that you have right now. today. that feeling like you can do anything. That clarity. It goes away. And you go right back to being the coward who can't tell the person you love how you feel- Grey's Anatomy
When you're talking about human chemistry only one thing matters: either you've got it or you don't.- Grey's Anatomy
I don't know anyone who isn't haunted by something or someone. And whether we try to slice the pain away with a scalpel or shove it in the back of a closet- our efforts usually fail. So the only way we can clear out the cobwebs is to turn a new page or put an old story to rest- finally, finally to rest.- Grey's Anatomy
You didn't love her! You just didn't want to be alone. Or maybe, maybe she was good for your ego. Or, or maybe she made you feel better about your miserable life, but you didn't love her, because you don't destroy the person that you love!- Grey's Anatomy
People are stupid and just want to be loved. That's the only reason anyone does anything- Grey's Anatomy
Deep down, everyone wants to believe they can be hardcore. But being hardcore isn't just about being tough - it's about acceptance. Sometimes you have to give yourself permission to not be hardcore for once. You don't have to be tough every minute of every day. It's okay to let down your guard. In fact, there are moments when it's the best thing you can possibly do - as long as you choose your moments wisely.- Grey's Anatomy
Cristina : As far as a I can tell...severe abandonment issues.
Meredith : That's crap. Psych is crap. Issues.
Cristina : It's in the book. The book said it not me. Have you consider maybe you and Derek should stop having break-up sex?
Meredith : The more available he gets...the more I pull away.
Cristina : What do you mean?
Meredith : Nothing. It's a Derek thing.
The thing about addiction is it never ends well, because eventually, whatever it is that was getting us high stops feeling good and starts to hurt. Still, they say you don't kick the habit until you hit rock bottom, but how do you know when you're there? Because no matter how badly a thing is hurting us, sometimes letting it go hurts even worse.- Grey's Anatomy
The truth is hard. The truth is awkward and very often the truth hurts. I mean, people think they want the truth. But do they really?- Grey's Anatomy
I'm in love with this incredible guy and we're having problems. And my best friend, he would know what to say to me about it. I need to be able to talk to my best friend. I cannot get through this without my best friend.- Grey's Anatomy
Forgive and forget. That's what they say. It's good advice, but it's not very practical. When someone hurts us, we want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness old scores never settle. Old wounds never heal, and the most we can hope for is that someday we'll be lucky enough to forget- Grey's Anatomy
You knew what you wanted. You sticked to your guns. You proved that if you want something bad enough, if you're determined enough, if you're patient enough eventually it will happen. & that gives me hope. So thanks for that.- Grey's Anatomy
The truth is painful. Deep down nobody wants to hear it, especially when it hits close to home. Sometimes we tell the truth because the truth is all we have to give. Sometimes we tell the truth because we need to say it outloud to hear it for ourselves. And sometimes we tell the truth because we just can't help ourselves. Sometimes, we tell them because we owe them at least that much.- Grey's Anatomy
I can't stop. I just can't stop seeing Derek. And it's not about the sex. Its not...about the sex. It's about that moment afterward.when the world stops. It just feels so safe.So safe. I'm not ready to give that up. Does that make me sad and weak and pathetic?- Grey's Anatomy
In some ways we grow up. We have families, we get married, divorced, but for the most part, we still have the same problems that we did when we were fifteen. No matter how much we grow taller, grow older, we are still forever stumbling, forever wondering, forever young.- Grey's Anatomy
It's good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose.- Grey's Anatomy
So chin up. Put your shoulders back, walk proud, strut a little. Don't lick your wounds: celebrate them. The scars you bear are the signs of a competitor. You're in a lion fight. Just because you didn't win doesn't mean you don't know how to roar.- Grey's Anatomy
We like to think that we are rational beings; humane, conscientious, civilized, thoughtful. But when things fall apart, even just a little, it becomes clear we are not better than animals. We have opposable thumbs, we think, we walk erect, we speak, we dream, but deep down we are still routing around in the primordial ooze; biting, clawing, scratching out an existence in the cold, dark world like the rest of the tree-toads and sloths.- Grey's Anatomy
Some days the whole world seems upside down. And then some how, and probably when you least expect it, the world rights itself again.- Grey's Anatomy
