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
Callie: I like penis. I'm a huge huge fan of penis.- Grey's Anatomy
People are constantly asking you to tell them how you're doing. How the hell are you supposed to know?- Grey's Anatomy
You know, whenever anyone says something really funny and I laugh I always look around to see if you think it's funny too. Even when you are not there, so I look around- Grey's Anatomy
In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the earth, at least that's what they say. He created the birds of the air and the beasts of the fields, and he looked at his creation and he saw that it was good. And then God created man, and it's been downhill ever since. The story goes on to say that God created man in his own image, but there's not much proof of that. After all God made the sun and the moon and the stars, and all man makes is trouble. And when man finds himself in trouble, which is most of the time, he turns to something bigger than himself. To love or faith or religion to make sense of it all.- Grey's Anatomy
I think it's better to have someone, even if it hurts, even if it's the most painful thing you have to do, even if it's the most painful thing you've ever had to do. I think it's better to have someone.- Grey's Anatomy
As doctors, we know more about the human body now than at any point in our history. But the miracle of life itself; why people live and die, why they hurt and get hurt is still a mystery. We want to know the reason, the secret, the answer at the back of the book.because the thought of our being all alone down here is just too much for us to bear. But at the end of the day, the fact that we show up for each other, in spite our differences, no matter what we believe, is reason enough to keep believing.- Grey's Anatomy
Addison : I have a plane to catch...I walk on the beach now, I buy Aromatherapy candles, I'm very zen, but I want to kick your ass so badly right now it is killing me.
Meredith : Excuse me?
Addison : I'm talking about Derek. Derek Christopher Shepherd. Are you letting him get away? Because I swear to God Meredith, if you let him ride off into the sunset with that doe-eyed little thing..
Have some fire. Be unstoppable. Be a force of nature. Be better than anyone here, and don't give a damn what anyone thinks. There are no teams here, no buddies. You're on your own. Be on your own.- Grey's Anatomy
I'm still mad at you and I don't know if I trust you, I wanna trust you, but I don't know if I do. So I'm just gonna try, I'm gonna try and trust you. Because I believe that we can be extraordinary together rather than ordinary apart.- Grey's Anatomy
I don't want you to date other people. It may not be enough for you, but I'm trying here so I don't want you to date anybody but me. That's it. Except, I'm scared as hell to want you, but here I am wanting you anyway. And fear means I have something to lose, right? And I don't want to lose you.- Grey's Anatomy
There's a little animal in all of us and maybe that's something to celebrate. Our animal instinct is what makes us seek comfort, warmth, a pack to run with. We may feel caged, we may feel trapped, but still as humans we can find ways to feel free. We are each other's keepers, we are the guardians of our own humanity and even though there's a beast inside all of us, what sets us apart from the animals is that we can think, feel, dream and love. And against all odds, against all instinct, we evolve.- Grey's Anatomy
Callie : Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith : No because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina : And then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Don't wonder why people go crazy. Wonder why they don't. In face of what we can lose in a day, in an instant, wonder what the hell it is that make us hold it together.- Grey's Anatomy
We all remember the bed time stories of our childhood. The shoe fit Cinderella, the frog was turned into a prince, sleeping beauty was awakened with a kiss. Once upon a time and then they lived happily ever after. Fairy tales. The stuff of dreams. the problem is, fairy tales don't come true. It's the other stories. The ones that start in dark and stormy nights and end in the unspeakable. The nightmares always seem to become the reality.- Grey's Anatomy
As surgeons we are trained to fix what’s broken. The breaking point is our starting line...at work. But in our lives the breaking point is a sign of weakness and we’ll do everything we can to avoid it. Bones break. organs burst. flesh tears. We can sew the flesh, repair the damage, ease the pain. But when life breaks down...when we break down...there’s no science. No hard and fast rules. We just have to feel our way through. And to a surgeon there’s nothing worse, and there’s nothing better.- Grey's Anatomy
I think you and Derek will make it. You will make it work. I'm your person. I'm on your side- Grey's Anatomy
Yes. Horrible things DO happen. Happiness in the face of all of that? That's not the goal. Feeling the horrible and knowing that you’re not gonna die from those feelings...that’s the point.- Grey's Anatomy
Cristina: We are not happy, glowy people.
Izzie and Meredith: Yeah.
Cristina: We need to get out of here.
Izzie and Meredith: Yeah
People are terrible to the people they love sometimes. They're mean. You were both having a hard time and you took it out on each other. It doesn't make you the worst wife in the world. It just makes you a person who made a mistake.- Grey's Anatomy
I'm just gonna keep my eyes closed. Because this is like that moment in the morning when you first wake up and your still half asleep and everything seems.. things are possible dreams feel true and for that one moment between waking and dreaming anything can be real and then you open your eyes and the sun hits you and then you realize.... - I'm just gonna keep my eyes closed- Grey's Anatomy
Once upon a time, happier ever after. The stories we tell are the stuff of dreams. Fairy tales don't come true. Reality is much stormier. Much murkier. Much scarier.- Grey's Anatomy
We like to think we're fearless, eager to explore unknown lands and soak up new experiences, but the fact is, we're always terrified. Maybe the terror is part of the attraction. Some people go to horror movies. We cut things open. Dive into dark water. And at the end of the day, isn't that what you'd rather to hear about? If you've got one drink and one friend and 45 minutes. Slow rides make for boring stories. A little calamity. Now that's worth talking about.- Grey's Anatomy
You can't blame yourself. Some people are just broken. I guess you just try not to care too much and you can't be disappointed.- Grey's Anatomy
