It's not a day on the calendar. Not a birthday, not a new year. It's an event, big or small, something that changes us. Ideally, it gives us hope. A new way of living and looking at the world. Letting go of old habits, old memories . . . What's important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning. But it's also important to remember that amid all the crap . . . are a few things worth holding on to.- Grey's Anatomy
Derek: Oh... I usually just say “Meredith” and then you yell at me. I haven’t thought past that point. I actually didn’t have anything planned.
Okay, the man I love, has a wife. And then he chooses her over me. And that wife, takes my dog. Okay, she didn't take the dog, I gave it to her, but I didn't mean to give it to her. I meant to give it to him. But that does not change the fact that she's got my McDreamy. And my McDog. She's got my McLife. And what have I got? You know, I can't remember the last time we kissed. Cause you never think the last time is the last time, you think there'll be more. You think you have forever but you don't.- Grey's Anatomy
I need a sign things are gonna change, I need a reason to go on, I need hope.- Grey's Anatomy
George: You don't get to choose. I know you've been going through a bad time. I know you miss Shepard. And I know that your life has, admittedly, been pretty unpleasant these days. You get points for breathing in and out. You get to be a little selfish. But you don't get to choose a dog over me... I'm George. I sleep down the hall from you. I buy your tampons. I have held your hand, every time you asked. I've earned the right to be seen. To be respected. To not have you think of me, as less than a dog that you got at the pound. So, I'm not moving out. Whether you like it or not, I'm staying.- Grey's Anatomy
In general, lines are there for a reason : for security, for clarity. If you choose to cross the line, you pretty much do so at your own risk. So why is it, that the bigger the line, the greater the temptation to cross it?… we cant help ourselves, we see a line we want to cross it. maybe it’s the thrill of trading the familiar for the unfamiliar, a sort of personal dare. Only problem is once you’ve crossed, its almost impossible to go back. But, if you do manage to make it back across that line, you find safety in numbers- Grey's Anatomy
Izzie: I just, JUST need some sex, George. You know, I just, I need sex now, you know what I mean?
George: No matter how hard you beg, I am not doing you
lying is bad, or so we're told constantly from birth. honesty is the best policy, the truth shall set you free, i chopped down the cherry tree. whatever. the fact is lying is a necessity. we lie to ourselves because the truth, the truth freaking hurts- Grey's Anatomy
Meredith: No, there will be no memories. I'm not the girl in the bar anymore and you're not the guy. This can't exsist. You got that, right?
Derek: You took advantage of me and now you wanna forget about it.
Meredith: I did not take advantage.
Derek: I was drunk, vulnerable, and good looking and you took advantage.
Meredith: Okay I was the one who was drunk and you are not that good looking.
Derek: Maybe not today, but last night-- last night I was very good looking.
Remember when you were a kid and your biggest worry was like, if you'd get a bike for your birthday or if you'd get to eat cookies for breakfast. Being an adult? Totally overrated. I mean seriously, don't be fooled by all the hot shoes and the great sex and the no parents anymore telling you what to do. Adulthood is responsibility.- Grey's Anatomy
Meredith: You should take something.
Cristina: Drugs are for babies.
Izzie: I hate Alex.
Cristina: And the non sequitur award goes to...
Izzie: I’m sorry, but I hate Alex.
Meredith: I broke up with Derek.
Cristina: Burke wants to have a relationship.
Izzie: Boys are stupid.
I mean, if life's so hard already, why do we bring more trouble down on ourselves? What's up with the need to hit the self-destruct button.- Grey's Anatomy
Meredith: I have this feeling...- Grey's Anatomy
Derek: I get that also. If you wait long enough it passes.- Grey's Anatomy
Meredith: Do you promise?- Grey's Anatomy
Derek: I promise.- Grey's Anatomy
You're letting her think you're emotionally available. You're letting her think she has a chance. And there is nothing worse in the world than thinking you have a chance when you really don't.- Grey's Anatomy
Whoever said What you don't know can't hurt you was a complete and total moron. Because ... for most people I know, not knowing is the worst feeling in the world.- Grey's Anatomy
Derek: Hey. You almost died today.
Meredith: Yeah, I almost died today. ... I can't, I can't remember our last kiss. All I could think about was "I'm going to die today" and I can't remember our last kiss. Which, is pathetic but the last time we were together and happy, I... want to be able remember that, and I can't Derek. I can't remember.
Derek: I'm glad you didn't die today. [starts to leave but stops] It was a Thursday morning, you were wearing that ratty little 'Dartmouth' T-shirt you look so good in, the one with the hole at the back of the neck. You'd just washed you hair and you smelled like some kind of...flower. I was running late for surgery, you said you were going to see me later, and you lean to me, put your hand on my chest and you kissed me. Soft. It was quick. Kinda like a habit. You know, like we'd do it everyday for the rest of our lives. And you went back reading the newspaper and I went to work. That was the last time we kissed.
I know I'm not a world reknowned surgeon and I know I'm not alot of things you've gone for in the past. But I would never leave you, I would never hurt you, and I will never stop loving you- Grey's Anatomy
Derek: we'll find these things out. that's the fun part, that's the gravy
Meredith: that is what I'm talking about! I don't wanna be your gravy!
It’s easy to suggest a quick solution, when you don’t know much about the problem or you don’t understand the underlying cause or just how deep the wound is. The first step toward a real cure is to know exactly what the disease is to begin with. But that’s not what people want to hear. We're supposed to forget the past that led us here, ignore the future complications that might arise and go for the quick fix- Grey's Anatomy
Izzie: Just so we're clear, we're over, Alex. This is over.
Alex: What? You're breaking up with me over a corpse?
Izzie: No! No! I'm breaking up with you because, on your very best day, that corpse... is twice the man you will ever be. You're not good enough for me, Alex. You're not good enough for anyone.
Superstition lies in the space between what we can control. Find a penny, pick it up, and all day long you'll have good luck. No one wants to pass up a chance for good luck. But does saying it thirty three times really help? Is anyone really listening? And if no ones listening, why do we bother doing those strange things. We rely on superstitions because we're smart enough to know we don't have all the answers. And that life works in mysterious ways. Don't diss the juju, from wherever it comes.- Grey's Anatomy
Derek: We could, might be fun. I could be your friend
Meredith: No, we cant be friends
