o, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them

"How would you feel if she called your penis angry or snide?"

"I had already fixed her before you came, but that was a nice speech."

"Just because people do horrible things... it doesn't always mean they're horrible people."

"And if we're lucky, we realize, in the face of everything, in the face of life, the true dream is being able to dream at all."

"It's important to tell the people you love how much you love them while they can hear you."

"I barely know the guy."

"Sometimes, change is everything."

"If you die, it probably won't change my life that much. But if you did, it will break Lexie."

"You can do this. No matter what, you're going down that aisle today."

"The two of us are gonna be serving Slushees at the multiplex."

"They're my family."

"We are not better."

"This is the best breakup ever."

"Just put one foot in front of the other. Just get through the day."

"Nobody chooses to be a freak. Most people don't even realize they're a freak until it's way too late to change it."

"Hostile? Did she really just call my uterus hostile?"

"You're driving awfully fast, Dr. Shepherd. The least you could do is wear a seatbelt."

"Do I have sex hair?"

"Patients see us as gods or they see us as monsters. But the fact is, we're just people."

"It's one of the things that make me happy."

"I need to put her to rest. I need to not become her. I need to not die emotionally crippled and alone. I need to not attend the wedding of Derek Shepherd and Sydney Heron. I NEED TO PUT MY MOTHER TO REST."

"I told you you can't have sex with my fake sister here."

"There is no other day. Every day is like this. Every day is a crisis."

"Pick me, choose me, love me."

- quotes from ABC.com

Meredith Grey: [after a one-night stand with Derek Shepherd] I'm going to go upstairs and take a shower. And when I come back you won't be here. So goodbye, Derek."


Katie Bryce: My head is full.
Meredith Grey: It's called thinking. Go with it.


Meredith Grey: Don't look at me like that, like you've seen me naked.


Meredith Grey: I can't think of a single reason why I should be a surgeon, but I can think of a thousand reasons why I should quit. They make it hard on purpose... there are lives in our hands. There comes a moment when it's more than just a game, and you either take that step forward or turn around and walk away. I could quit but here's the thing, I love the playing field.

----------------------------------------Meredith Grey: We're adults. When did that happen? And how do we make it stop?

Meredith Grey: At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don't keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That's how we're made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines... that are way too dangerous to cross.

----------------------------------------Meredith Grey: You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what your life would be, white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close you could taste them, but eventually you grow up, one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is its hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true.

Meredith Grey: At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don't really expect it. Its like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And its not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you , and once in a while people may even take your breath away.

----------------------------------------Meredith Grey: A couple of hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. Never leave that till tomorrow, he said, which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity. You think more people would listen to what he had to say. I don't know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I'd have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you're wrong? What if you're making a mistake you can't undo? The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can't pretend we hadn't been told. We've all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today's possibility under tomorrow's rug until we can't anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying.

Meredith Grey: Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we're wired that way. Because without it, I don't know; maybe we just wouldn't feel real. What's that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop.


Meredith Grey: Intimacy is a four syllable word for, "Here's my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy." It's both desired, and feared. Difficult to live with, and impossible to live without. Intimacy also comes attached to the three R's... relatives, romance, and roommates. There are some things you can't escape. And other things you just don't want to know.


Meredith Grey: I wish there were a rulebook for intimacy. Some kind of guide to tell you when you've crossed the line. It would be nice if you could see it coming, and I don't know how you fit it on a map. You take it where you can get it, and keep it as long as you can. And as for rules, maybe there are none. Maybe the rules of intimacy are something you have to define for yourself.


Meredith Grey: Okay, here it is, your choice... it's simple, her or me, and I'm sure she is really great. But Derek, I love you, in a really, really big pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.
