GREY'S ANATOMY OPENING QUOTE:

Surgeons usually fantasize about wild and improbable surgeries. Someone collapses in a restaurant, you splice them open with a butter knife, replace a valve with a hollowed out stick of carrot. But every now and then some other kind of fantasy slips in. Most of our fantasies dissolve when we wake, banished to the back of our mind, but sometimes we're sure if we try hard enough-- we can live the dream.



GREY'S ANATOMY ENDING QUOTE:
The fantasy is simple. Pleasure is good, and twice as much pleasure is better. That pain is bad, and no pain is better. But the reality is different. The reality is that pain is there to tell us something. And there's only so much pleasure we can take without getting a stomach ache. And maybe that's okay. Maybe some fantasies are only supposed to live in our dreams.


GREY'S ANATOMY QUOTES
Memorable Quotes, zingers and one-liners


  • Izzie (To George) "I hate the Bride thing. I hate the pictures in the magazines of the girl with the veil and the flowers that she's sniffing, like it never occurred to her to stick her nose in there until there was a camera pointed at her. I hate the idea of bridesmaids, and the colors, and does the bustle make my ass look bigger or smaller. I hate the whole thing. And I never wanted to be that girl. That girl is stupid...and shallow. Why the hell is that girl's songs running through my head?

  • Meredith (To Finn & Derek) "Enough! This is not dating. I want moonlight and flowers and candy and people trying to feel me up. Nobody is trying to feel me up. Nobody is even looking at me. I'm an intern, do the two of you have any idea how much effort it takes to do all this? I'm waxed and plucked and I have a clean top on and the two of you are looking at each other. No. my fantasy is not two men looking at each other! No talking until one of you figures how to put on a date! I want heat, I want romance, dammit I want to feel like a freakin lady!
