After careful consideration and many sleepless nights, here’s what I've decided: there's no such thing as a grown-up. We move on, we move out, we move away from our families and form our own. But the basic insecurities, the basic fears and all those old wounds just grow up with us....We get bigger, we get taller, we get older. But, for the most part, we're still a bunch of kids, running around the playground, trying desperately to fit in.- Grey's Anatomy
Okay, so, sometimes, even the best of us make rash decisions, bad decisions, decisions we pretty much know we're regret the moment, the minute....espeically the morning after. I mean, maybe not regret.... regret, because at least we put ourselves out there. But still, something inside of us decides to do a crazy thing, a thing we know that will probably bite us in the ass, but we do it anyway. What I am saying is, we reap what we sew. What comes around goes around. Like I was saying... payback is a b.- Grey's Anatomy
He's not the kind of guy you leave if you can help it- Grey's Anatomy
Ms. Synder explained to me that when fate comes into play choice sometimes goes out the window. At the ripe old age of 13 I was very clear, that love like life is about making choices and fate has nothing to do with it. Everyone thinks its so romantic... Romeo and Juliet, true love...how sad. If Juliet was stupid enough to fall for the enemy, drink the bottle of poison, and go to sleep in a mausoleum ... she deserved whatever she got.- Grey's Anatomy
Games are all about glory, pain and the play by play. Then there are the more solitary games, the games we each play all by ourselves -- the social games, the mind games. We use them to pass the time; to make life more interesting.. to distract us from what's really going on.- Grey's Anatomy
I am Preston Burke, a widely renowned cardiothorasic surgeon. I am a professional. And more than that I am a good and kind person. I am a person that cleans up behind myself. I am a person that cooks well. And you, you are an unbelievable slob. A slovenly, angry intern. I am Preston Burke. And you, you are the most competitive, most guarded, most stubborn, most challenging person I have ever met. And I love you. What the hell is the matter with you that you wont just let me?- Grey's Anatomy
We're friends, real friends. And that means, no matter how long it takes, when you finally do decide to look back, I’ll still be here.- Grey's Anatomy
I've heard that its possible to grow up, I've just never met anyone who’s actually done it. Without parents to defy, we break the rules we make for ourselves. We throw tantrums when things don’t go our way. We whisper secrets with our best friend, in the dark. We look for comfort where we can find it. And we hope against all logic, against all experience, like children- we never give up hope- Grey's Anatomy
There are those of us who love to play games. Any game. And there are those of us who love to play too much- Grey's Anatomy
Well? I need one of you to tell me what this means eactly. Because I think I know what it means. But I tend to be glass half-empty these days. So I won’t trust what I think it means.- Grey's Anatomy
Meredith: I didn't know I didn't want to. You were there, and you were saying all the right things, and I was sad, and so I thought, maybe I’ve been overlooking what's been in front of me, and if I just give it a chance, because you're George, and you're so great...I didn't know I didn't want to...until I knew I didn't want to.
George: Yea ok
Meredith: Can we please just go back to everything the way it was?
George: I don’t know how to go back. No, I'm done. We're done
As doctors, as friends, as human beings, we all try to do the best we can. But the world is full of unexpected twists and turns. And just when you’ve gotten the lay of the land, the ground underneath you shifts. And knocks you off your feet. If you're lucky, you'll end up with nothing more than a flesh wound, something a bandaid will cover. But, some wounds are deeper than they first appear, and require more than just a quick fix. With some wounds, you have to rip of the bandaid, let them breathe and give them time to heal.- Grey's Anatomy
Life is not a spectator sport; win, lose or draw, the game is in progress whether we want it to be or not. So go ahead, argue with the refs, change the rules, cheat a little, take a break and tend to your wounds. But play hard, play fast, play loose and free; play as if theres no tomorrow. Ok so, It's not whether you win or lose, it's how you play the game, right?- Grey's Anatomy
A wise man once said you can have anything in life, if you sacrifice everything else for it. What he meant is, nothing comes without a price. So before you go into battle you better decide how much you're willing to lose.- Grey's Anatomy
The point is we can't help who we fall in love with- Grey's Anatomy
Too often going after what feels good means letting of what you know is right. And letting someone in means abandoning the walls you took so long to build. Of course, the toughest sacrifices are the ones we don't see coming ; when we don't have time to come up with a strategy, pick a side, or measure the potential loss. When that happens, when the battle chooses us and not the other way around, that's when the sacrifice becomes more than we can bear- Grey's Anatomy
It's okay the hot ones are always mean. It's like a rule or something- Grey's Anatomy
There are days that make the sacrifices seem worthwhile. And then there are the days where everything feels like a sacrifice. And then there are the sacrifices that you cant even figure out why you're making- Grey's Anatomy
I just can't tell you what you want to hear which seems to be a theme in my life. Just because you can't tell someone doesn't mean you can't feel it. You can be with someone and be happy and not love them. Or you can love them and not be with them- Grey's Anatomy
You're right, I should run. But I'd rather be running towards someone than running away- Grey's Anatomy
All her life she's asked me everything... from what color dress she oughta wear to her kindergarten dance, to what she should name her baby. I'm her moma.. it's my job to have an opinion, and its my job to have an answer.- Grey's Anatomy
Meredith :This could be a mistake. This. Us. You, you, you're a really nice guy and well, you're, you don't want to get involved with me. If you knew me
Finn : Scary
Meredith : Finn
Finn : And damaged. See, I told you.
Meredith : If you knew me. If you knew my family. If I told you the guys that I've slept with lately. The scary and damaged may actually be more than you can handle.
I can't compete. He's not having an affair. He's not trying to hurt me. He's just... The only people who don't know that Derek loves Meredith are Derek and Meredith. How do I compete with that?- Grey's Anatomy
The thing is, I was healthy my whole life till I wasn't. And the last year I've had a lot of time to lie around in bed and think about my life. And the things that I remember best... well, those are the things that I wasn't supposed to do and I did them anyway. See, the thing is, Meredith, life is too damned short to be following these rules.- Grey's Anatomy
So what makes anger different from the six other deadly sins? It's pretty simple really, you give into a sin like envy or pride and you only hurt yourself. Try lust or coveting and you'll only hurt yourself and one or two others. But anger, anger is the worst... the mother of all sins... Not only can anger drive you over the edge, when it does you can take an awful lot of people with you.- Grey's Anatomy
