MEREDITH: "I was swimming. I was fighting. Then I thought, just for a second, I thought ‘What’s the point?’ And then I let go. I stopped fighting. Don’t tell anybody."
DENNY: "Okay."
MEREDITH: "What?"
DENNY: "Izzie."
MEREDITH: "You can see her?"
DENNY: "No. Sometimes we’d be at the same place at exactly the same time and I can almost hear her voice. It’s like I’m touching her. I like to believe she knows I’m there. That’s all you get. That’s it. Moments with the people you love. And they’ll move on and you’ll want them to move on. But still, Meredith, that’s all you get. Moments."


MEREDITH: "You watch me take a bath?"
DENNY: "I don't watch women in the tub. I wish I could watch women... We know things, okay?

DYLAN: "Hey."
MEREDITH: "Hey. Am I... dead?
DENNY: "Damn right you are."
MEREDITH: "Holy ... "

DEREK: "You wanna get married? You never told me, and I never asked. And now we have a problem."
MEREDITH: "What? No, I don’t want to get married... do you wanna get married?"
DEREK: "No, good. So if that’s not it, what is it?"
MEREDITH: "It isn’t anything."

CRISTINA: "Meredith, I have a thing... news."
MEREDITH: "You’re not pregnant again, are you? Because I can’t handle the extra months of bitchiness."

MEREDITH: "You ever feel like you’re disappearing?"
IZZIE: "All the time."
MEREDITH: "Why can’t I just be the happily ever after person? Why can’t I believe in that?"
IZZIE: "I don’t know what I believe in anymore."

MEREDITH: "I did not try to drown myself in the bathtub."
IZZIE: "Hey, I ate everything out of the fridge last night. Everything. Including a tub of butter. There's not judgement here."

MEREDITH: "I'm a surgeon. I do the rescuing. You are not my knight in shining whatever."
DEREK: "So we're gonna fight because I pulled you out of the tub."
MEREDITH: "You have a place. You could sleep at it. And then you don't have to pull me out of the bathtub. You're everywhere, all the time, saying things."
DEREK: "This is the happy ever after part. And in the happily ever after, the guy is there all the time, saying things and the girls love it!"
MEREDITH: "Go to work, I'll see you there."
DEREK: "And just for the record? I am your knight in shining whatever."

DEREK: "Your Mother! Look, your Mother was lucid and she said some things, and now she's-"
MEREDITH: "Gone! And everything's back to normal, it's not a big deal."
DEREK: "Yeah, except she's having heart surgery today."
MEREDITH: [sighs]
DEREK: "Hey. Do you want me to talk to the Chief? I know you have the Triage thing today, but he'll give you the day off."
MEREDITH: "Stop. I do not need rescuing."
DEREK: "You would've drowned in the bathtub had I not been there."

MEREDITH: "I was taking a bath!"
DEREK: "That's not a bath, I know what a bath looks like."

MEREDITH: "How's George?"
IZZIE: "Medically he's fine, emotionally he's a little stunted if you ask me. You don't marry the rebound girl. Am I right?"
CRISTINA: "You don't marry anyone on a whim."
MEREDITH: "No, he needs our support."
IZZIE: "He doesn't need us, he's got his Vegas show-wife."

ELLIS: "What happened to you?"
MEREDITH: "What do you mean?"
ELLIS: "You're happy? You're happy now? The Meredith I knew was a force of nature. Passionate, focused, a fighter. What happened to you? You've gone soft! Stammering about a boyfriend and saying you're waiting to be inspired. You're waiting for inspiration? Are you kidding me?! I have a disease for which there is no cure, I think that would be inspiration enough! Listen to me, Meredith. Anyone can fall in love and be blindly happy! But not everyone can pick up a scalpel and save a life. I raised you to be an extraordinary human being, so imagine my disappointment when I wake up after five years and discover that you are no more than... ordinary! What happened to you?!"

MEREDITH: "You got married?"
GEORGE: "Yeah, I did. It was- I know it was implusive."
MEREDITH: "Was it good-impulsive or Meredith-impulsive? Because if it was Meredith-impulsive, maybe I could help get you out of it."
GEORGE: "No. It's a good thing. But thanks for the back-up."
MEREDITH: "You're welcome. Congratulations George."

ELLIS: "Then let me refuse the heart surgery."
MEREDITH: "No!"
ELLIS: "Why not?!"
MEREDITH: "Because killing my mother is not gonna be another thing that happens to me."

MEREDITH: [to Ellis] "You think that I like making these decisions for you? You think it's fun to get calls from the nursing home asking whether I was planning on giving the nurse, who changes you every morning a Christmas tip? But I do it. Because you have managed to alienate everybody else in your life and I am the only one, so I have to step up and do it. You wanna know why I'm so unfocused? So ordinary? You wanna know what happened to me? You! You happened to me!"

MEREDITH: "I'm not sure refusing treatment is what you want to do..."
ELLIS: "Apparently, what I want doesn't matter! It isn't even legally binding! So it's really about what you want, Meredith. You're in charge!"

MEREDITH: "The reason that I want you to have the surgery is because I have this hope, that in a year, two years or five, they're gonna have a breakthrough. They're gonna find a cure for Alzhiemer's, and you and I will have another chance. To get to know each other. You'll get a chance to know me, to see that I am not even remotely ordinary, so I wish you would have the surgery. But it's up to you Mom, it's your life."
ELLIS: "You remind me of my daughter."
RICHARD: "About an hour ago. One minute she was here, the next- I'm so sorry."
MEREDITH: "Me too."

IZZIE: "George has turned into a sex machine. Are you hearing me? A machine of sex! We have to do something. What's wrong with you people?"
MEREDITH: "Derek kept me up all night with his ranting. Cristina and Burke still are not speaking to each other."
CRISTINA: "Okay, you know what? I'm fine. I mean I'm just not going to be the first one talking. He has to talk because I'm in the right. Talking first is for losers, and I'm winning."
MEREDITH: "And Alex. I don't know what's wrong with Alex."
ALEX: "I'm good. I'm all good."

MEREDITH: [to Cristina, then Preston] "You're enjoying your meal at the International House of Silence. Burke, you have to feed Cristina. She doesn't cook and she will starve to death."
CRISTINA: "I have cereal!"
MEREDITH: "You two live together, someone has to be the first to speak."
PRESTON: "I am giving a dinner party. If she wants to sit there, she can sit there. Let's just enjoy our evening and talk about something else."

PRESTON: "Meredith. Would you like seconds?"
MEREDITH: "Maybe Cristina would like some. Cristina, would you like some?"
PRESTON: "I only made enough for three."
MEREDITH: "You just said there were seconds."
DEREK: "This isn't at all awkward."

DEREK: "From now on, you can expect that I'm gonna show up. Even if I yell. Even if you yell. I'm always gonna show up. Okay?"
MEREDITH: "Okay."

DEREK: "Okay, well this is how it works. You fight sometimes and somebody apologizes."
MEREDITH: "Well, how am I supposed to know that?"
DEREK: "You've never done this before."
MEREDITH: "No, I've never done this before."

DEREK: "I was a jerk. Sometimes boyfriends can be jerks, but it doesn't mean you stop talking to them... You get that I'm saying I'm sorry, right?"
MEREDITH: "You yelled at me for no reason, and then you walked away. And now you show up here."
DEREK: "Of course I showed up. Why wouldn't I? You don't trust me?"
MEREDITH: "I do."

MEREDITH: "You're the messy one."
CRISTINA: "No, no, my apartment's messy, my locker's messy, but I am not messy. Sometimes you have like food and stuff in your hair."
IZZIE: "Food. Band-aids on your face. I still can see that indentation from the nose strip you were wearing last night."

MEREDITH: "How am I related to that man?"
CRISTINA: "What do you mean?"
MEREDITH: "Look at him. He's a mess."
IZZIE: "Yeah?"
MEREDITH: "He's a disaster. He's a stumbling, mumbling, clumsy disaster, with whom I have absolutely nothing in common. Not one thing."
IZZIE: "I hate to break this to you."
MEREDITH: "What?"
CRISTINA: "You do your own share of stammering yourself.
IZZIE: "Yeah, that nervous talking you do? It's actually a lot like him."
CRISTINA: "Uh-huh. Uh-huh."
MEREDITH: "No, it's not."

MEREDITH: "Do you snore?"
THATCHER: "What?"
MEREDITH: "It appears that I snore. My mother never did, so I was just... Forget it."
THATCHER: "I snore. I snore like a trucker. You get that from me. The wax earplugs work pretty good."
MEREDITH: "Thanks."

MEREDITH: "Is there a drawer of unopened cards somewhere?"
THATCHER: "I'm sorry. What?"
MEREDITH: "I just wanted to know... I've only ever heard my mother's version of the story of why you left and I... I was wondering if maybe you had the side I hadn't heard."
THATCHER: "Your mother moved to Boston. And uh, I wanted to.. but she told me not to call or come around and... Uh, she was.. eventually I got re-married and I... I'm sorry."

MEREDITH: "Did you get any sleep last night?"
IZZIE: "No. I stayed up last night baking and cleaning the bathroom floor in case George wanted to hide out in there."

MEREDITH: [to Christina] "You're in a relationship without words." [to Izzie] "And you're a millionaire in twenty dollar shoes. Whatever!"

MEREDITH: "Hey, how's it going with Addison?"
ALEX: "What? What do- what do y-you mean by that?"
CRISTINA: "What are you plotting and can I get in on it?"

MEREDITH: "I'm a girl with abandonment issues. You have to sleep with me from now on."

MEREDITH: "Oh, you have got to be kidding me? Where's George?"
DEREK: "Spent the night at the hospital."
MEREDITH: "And you slept in his bed! All night?"
DEREK: "No, right after you fell asleep."

MRS. O'MALLEY: "Is that your ex-boyfriend?"
MEREDITH: "No, that's my ex-father."

MEREDITH: "Do you know what's not charming?"
DEREK: "What?"
MEREDITH: "Your morning breath."
DEREK: "Sorry, what?"
MEREDITH: "I'm just saying seeing how you're always up before me, you might consider brushing your teeth."
DEREK: [laughs] "Okay. This is me brushing my teeth."
MEREDITH: "Thank you."

MEREDITH: "You're watching me sleep again?"
DEREK: "You're cute when you sleep. What can I say?"
MEREDITH: "But don't you sleep? Why are you always up before the alarm?"
DEREK: "Well, I'm a light sleeper. It's no big deal."
MEREDITH: "So something woke you up."
DEREK: "It's no big deal."

CRISTINA: "You know if you want to thank me, um you can ask Derek if Burke has had any tremors?"
MEREDITH: "Talk to him."
CRISTINA: "No, because then he wins."
MEREDITH: "Wins what?"
CRISTINA: "Forget it."

MEREDITH: "I just wish the baby would get well and go home and Thatcher will go with her. Is that wrong?"
CRISTINA: "Wrong would be if you wished the baby wouldn't get well."
MEREDITH: "Okay, good. Thanks."

DEREK: "Morning."
MEREDITH: "Are you watching me sleep?"
DEREK: "Maybe."
MEREDITH: "What are you? Some kind of weirdo who watches women sleep?"
DEREK: "Maybe."

MEREDITH: "Hey, how's it going with Addison?"
ALEX: "She's doing well."

DEREK: "You snore."
MEREDITH: "I do not!"

CRISTINA: "Why can't you just mind your own business, you know? What is your problem?"
MEREDITH: "You're my sister. You're my family. You're all I've got."
CRISTINA: "I'm so tired."
MEREDITH: "I know. Me too."

MEREDITH: "Izzie, you cut the LVAD wire and she stuck by you and did Denny's ECHO. Alex cheated on Izzie with syph nurse and she helped you study for your boards. And George, when everybody was calling you 007-"
GEORGE: "She was calling me 007." [leaves]
MEREDITH: "Just let her off the hook."
ALEX: "It's okay."
IZZIE: "Sorry."

MEREDITH: "I can't take this anymore!"
IZZIE: "What?"
MEREDITH: "Let her off the hook. Let Cristina off the freaking hook."
CRISTINA: "Meredith!"

MEREDITH: [to Susan Grey] "I'm sorry. You are very nice. You both seem so very nice. But I don't know you. And you're not my family."

GEORGE: [to Cristina] "Got a head count of how many patients you two lied to the past month?"
MEREDITH: "George."
IZZIE: "Leave her alone. Her patients live so she gets to scrub in."
MEREDITH: "Izzie."
CRISTINA: "Meredith, please can you just stop defending me?"

ALEX: [to Cristina] "You're here? You haven't been kicked out of the program yet."
MEREDITH: "Alex."
CRISTINA: "No, not yet. I'm still here."
ALEX: "How did you do it? I mean, did you have some kinda signal in surgery so that the nurses wouldn't know? Or did you..."
MEREDITH: "Alex!"
ALEX: "What? I'm just wondering how to get ahead around here. Me? I get coffee for Sloan and Yang gets surgeries none of us would get."

MEREDITH: "He's not talking to you?"
CRISTINA: "No, I'm not talking to him either."
MEREDITH: "I'm sorry. Are you okay?"
CRISTINA: "Stop asking me."
MEREDITH: "Making an effort here."
CRISTINA: "Please don't."

MEREDITH: "How's it going?"
CRISTINA: "Just walk away."
MEREDITH: "You and Burke. Are you okay?"
CRISTINA: "We're existing in total silence."

DEREK: "No, no that is not how this works. How could you know what you know, or suspect it and not even tell me?"
MEREDITH: "You cleared him for surgery, Derek. How did you not know? You can’t be angry with me. She’s my best friend, and right or wrong, she..."
DEREK: "What?"
MEREDITH: "She was there when you weren't."

CALLIE: "George thinks I betrayed him and I didn't... I didn't. We were broken up."
MEREDITH: "Well. Go. Tell. George."
CALLIE: [leaves quietly]
IZZIE: "Dude, she went all cage fight on you."
MEREDITH: "I know."

IZZIE: "Hey! Hey! I'm sorry, I'm sorry but she's very little and you're hurting her!"
CALLIE: "You told George! My night with McSteamy was not yours to share!"
IZZIE: "That's what this is about? Your sex with McSteamy?"
CALLIE: "You told Izzie?"
IZZIE: "No! No!"
MEREDITH: "Callie! You told me you slept with someone! You never said it was Sloan. George told me it was Sloan!"

CALLIE: [shoves Meredith] "I kept your secrets. I was discreet. I was a really good friend to you, and I didn't have to be. And then you go and do this?!"
MEREDITH: "Do what?!"
IZZIE: "Hey! Callie! Use your words! Use your words!"
CALLIE: "Panties, Meredith! I'm talkin' about the McFrickin' Code of Silence! The pair of panties I pulled off the bulletin board... not to mention the adulterous McSex I witnessed! Remember that?!"

MEREDITH: "Hey Callie. I was going to come and find you. What did you want to talk to me about?"
CALLIE: "Panties."
IZZIE: "Er, Callie? What are you up to?"
CALLIE: "I'm going to kick Meredith's ass right now."

DEREK: "You know what says thank you like nothing else?" [mouths 'sex' inaudibly]
MEREDITH: "I'm leaving now."

MEREDITH: "Cristina, you don't jog. We don't jog."
CRISTINA: "Has George said anything to you?"
MEREDITH: "About what?"
CRISTINA: [pauses] "I jog sometimes. Without you."

CRISTINA: "What if Derek robbed a bank?"
MEREDITH: "What?"
CRISTINA: "Say Derek was robbing a bank and while he was in there, you were waiting outside because it was your job to drive the getaway car."
MEREDITH: "Why would Derek rob a bank?"
CRISTINA: "Just go with me. Please?"
MEREDITH: "Okay, Derek's robbing a bank."
CRISTINA: "And he gets caught, but no one knows you're involved, 'cause you were driving the car."
MEREDITH: "Okay, Derek's in jail and I'm in the mystery car. What's the question?"
CRISTINA: "Would you turn yourself in? Or would you stay quiet and let Derek go down for a robbery in which you were a complicit participant? Or would you stand by him?"
MEREDITH: "Well, whose idea was it to rob the bank?"
CRISTINA: "I don't know. I don't know. His. But you helped? Could you live with yourself if you just walked away and let the man you love take the fall?"
MEREDITH: "If you tell me, maybe I can help. If you tell me."
CRISTINA: "No, I'll see you- I'll see you at work."

MEREDITH: "Why are you so sweaty and ick?"
CRISTINA: "I jogged here."
MEREDITH: "You don't jog. We don't jog."

CRISTINA: "Am I interrupting sex?"
DEREK: "No."
CRISTINA: "Good. Get out."
DEREK: "What? You can't ask me to leave."
CRISTINA: "Meredith."
MEREDITH: "Give us a second."

DEREK: "Six-letter word for 'pinnacle.'"
MEREDITH: "Zenith."
DEREK: "Ah, this is good. No sex. Crossword puzzles. Current events. When does the knitting start?"
MEREDITH: "Shut up. Good things come to those who wait."
DEREK: "Yeah? I want sex."
MEREDITH: "There will be no sex."

IZZIE: "Callie slept with Sloan?"
GEORGE: "I don't get you people."
MEREDITH: "Us, with the boobs? We make alot of bad decisions."

GEORGE: "Why aren't you bragging about decanutlating the heart?"
CRISTINA: "I didn't decanulate the heart."
IZZIE: "Izzie and Alex do not believe you."
MEREDITH: "Okay, what are you two doing?"
IZZIE: "Izzie and Alex have a patient who speaks about himself in the third person."
ALEX: "They thought it was annoying at first, but now they kinda like it."

MIRANDA: "We're gonna have to do a partial matherectomy."
MEREDITH: "Do you think we can save Mia's kidneys?"
MIRANDA: "Well if we can control the bleeders, her cardizers are go. This poor baby, It's not gonna be an easy recovery."
MEREDITH: "Well, with parents like that she didn't have it easy to begin with."
MIRANDA: "People do the best they can, Dr. Grey."

MEREDITH: "You're probably not gonna want to be friends with me anymore, because the sheer intensity of my happiness will make my teeth hurt, but that's okay, because life is good. Life is good! [pauses] What's going on?"
IZZIE: "George's dad got admitted last night."
MEREDITH: "Oh my god! Is he okay?"

RICHARD: "Dr. Grey."
MEREDITH: "Chief!"
ELLIS: [jumps up] "Richard!"
RICHARD: "The nurse sayd she hasn't been eating."
ELLIS: "Mmm! You wonderful man!"
RICHARD: "I'm interrupting! I'll go-"
MEREDITH: "No! Chief, You stay and I'll go."

MEREDITH: "Mom, the nurses tell me you haven't been eating."
ELLIS: "No time, I've been in the OR all morning, and I've got back-to-back surgeries the rest of the day. So-"
MEREDITH: "Look, I'm sorry that I haven't been visiting, It's just that I've been-"
ELLIS: "I don't have tome to cuddle you right now. I'm trying to save lives here. Do you understand? Do you?"

DEREK: "We can take it slow. We can take it incredibly slow."
MEREDITH: "We're taking it slower than that! We're starting fresh!"
DEREK: "And starting fresh means no sex, because..."
MEREDITH: "Because we started with sex last time, and that didn't go so well. Plus the waiting is fun, and we need fun. From now on I want to be bright and shiny."
DEREK: "Mmm... bright and shiny, huh?"

MEREDITH: "What did I say?"
DEREK: "Seriously."
MEREDITH: "Seriously."
DEREK: "Seriously."

MEREDITH: "I don't think I'm cut out for the whole bright and sunny thing."
DEREK: "Me neither. We can be dull and lifeless together."
MEREDITH: "I'm glad you're in my bathtub at least."
DEREK: "Me too."

MEREDITH: "Seriously, we're taking it slow."

MEREDITH: "Today is the day dark and twisty Meredith disappears forever!"

MARK: "Seen what's-his-face?"
IZZIE: "Alex Karev?"
MARK: "Poor bastard seems to get a thrill out of tagging along after me."
MEREDITH: "He's camping."
MARK: "In that case, how would you like to get a thrill out of tagging along after me?"

MEREDITH: "Derek's camping. Taking time. Getting space."
CRISTINA: "Prestons do not go into the woods. A guy named Preston is gonna get his ass kicked by a squirrel."
IZZIE: "It's basically a slumber party. They do it outside, we do it inside. It's really the only difference."

DEREK: "We met at this bar, remember? We met and we, um, you said I'm just a girl, and I said I'm just a guy, and we started this thing. We started this thing. You didn't know anything about me. The good, the bad, the wife. You didn't even know my name. You didn't know me. I want you to know me. I want to start over from the beginning. So, hi, I'm Derek Shepherd."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "You walked away, and now it's too late. There's too much water under the thing, or whatever."
DEREK: "Meredith... Please."
MEREDITH: [sees Mark] "Hi, I'm Meredith Grey."
DEREK: "Very nice to meet you Meredith."
MEREDITH: "Nice to meet you too."

DEREK: "Hi, I'm Derek Shepherd."
MEREDITH: "What are you doing?"

MEREDITH: "You came back."
VICKY: "I was heading home. I was on my way to the airport. You know you asked before why I came back the first time. You know I tried not to. Iwent on dates, I had a lot of great first dates with guys who were planning on staying guys, and you know you have a great date and you wanna go and tell your best friend about it... Well, my best friend is Daniel. Donna. And then a few bad dates... she’s my best friend. She knows me, she loves me. She's my husband. The end of the day it's Donna. Even though she hurts me and even when I hate her."
MEREDITH: "She’s the one you wanna talk to."

MEREDITH: "Number one: No flirting. Second: No talking about Derek and C: No giving me the face."
MARK: "The face?"
MEREDITH: "The McSteamy face. Doesn't work on me. I'm immune."
MARK: "If I'd gone off to the woods, I would've invited you to keep me warm."
MEREDITH: "Breaking rules 1, 2 and 3."

MEREDITH: "Okay, before you start, there are rules to this friendship thing, or whatever."
MARK: "The Dirty Mistresses Club has rules? Gosh, I didn't think a bunch of dirty mistresses would be a little less uptight about these, uh, rules."

NANCY: "Okay, the trailer sucks but in the light of day, the land's nice. Seattle's pretty in the daylight. Plus you have your thing for ferries, so-"
DEREK & MEREDITH: "Ferry boats."
NANCY: "Right. Whatever."
DEREK: "Dr. Stevens, uh, Meredith, this is my sister, Nancy."
NANCY: "Hi."
MEREDITH: "Sister."
DEREK: "Yeah."
MEREDITH: [smiles] "Right. You're one of Derek's sisters."
NANCY: "I knew you didn't think I was the wife seeing as you already ran her off."

MEREDITH: "What the hell has happened to us?"
GEORGE: "We are now the people that the people we want to be with avoid. Great."
MEREDITH: "We have careers to think about. We don't need attention from them with perfect hair."
GEORGE: "You know, we should make a pact. There's no more dating."
MEREDITH: [nodding] "No more Derek. No more Callie."
GEORGE: "Just a hundred percent focused on our work."
MEREDITH: "They're dead to us."
GEORGE: "They're freakin' corpses to us. "

GEORGE: "Okay, I'll be Cristina for you, if you'll be Izzie for me."
MEREDITH: "Deal. Derek had a woman in his trailer last night. She was ugly, very ugly, except she was tall and beautiful. And he was naked.
GEORGE: "Oh. McDreamy was doing the McNasty with McHottie? That McBastard. Uh, how was that?
MEREDITH: "That was good."
GEORGE: "Really?"
MEREDITH: "Yeah."
GEORGE: "Excellent."
MEREDITH: "Okay. Chanelling Izzie. Go."
GEORGE: "Okay. Um, Callie... she won't forgive me. Uh, she won't talk to me. She dumped me. Which is, uh, I don't care about, you know, at all..."
MEREDITH: "Good, because you deserve better. You do. I mean... You. Are. George. I mean seriously. Seriously. Seriously! Was that Izzie optimistic?
GEORGE: [pauses] "Yes, it's very Izzie."

GEORGE: "Burke's back and suddenly Cristina's running his board? Who does she think she is? Bailey?"
MEREDITH: "She's helping him."
ALEX: "Bull. She's taking advantage. She gets out of rounds. She scrubs in on every surgery Burke does. She's ordering around third-year residents."
MEREDITH: "You guys are overreacting."

MEREDITH: "I've been trying to talk to you all week."
CRISTINA: "Everything is not about you, Meredith."

ADDISON: "Well it seems that your IUD has dislodged from your uterus, hooked onto your husband's piercing and is embedded in your vaginal wall."
JENNIFER: "Did she say piercing?"
MEREDITH: "Daughter."
ADDISON: "Perfect."

MEREDITH: "You're here, you're everywhere, and I can't not tell you. You know, I've been not telling you all day because I thought it was kind and I thought I was giving you space. But I can't not tell you because you're here and you're you and... I broke up with Finn."
DEREK: "Okay."
MEREDITH: "Okay, then. Okay. I told you."
DEREK: [leaves]

IZZIE: "Mer is the one with problems."
MEREDITH: "What is wrong with me?"
IZZIE: "Well, you haven't told McDreamy that you dumped McVet."
CRISTINA: "Oh, you hadn't done that yet?"
ALEX: "Dude, tell him already."
GEORGE: "She's scared."
MEREDITH: "I am not scared. Derek walked away. He walked away. And maybe that's a good thing. Maybe he's happier. Maybe he's moved on. He's got Addison here. He's got Mark here. He's got a lot to deal with. And I'm not gonna make him feel guilty. I mean, I am being an adult here and I'm not going to drag him into our whole... Izzie is the one with the big check!"
IZZIE: "I'm fine."

IZZIE: "Morning."
GEORGE: "I thought we were all done with the whole muffin thing."
IZZIE: "This isn't muffins. This is breakfast."
MEREDITH: "Are you okay?"
IZZIE: "Of course I'm okay. I'm a millionaire."

CALLIE: "I slept with another guy, do I tell George?"
MEREDITH: "I broke up with Finn, do I tell Derek? I can't tell Derek."
CALLIE: "I have to tell George."

MEREDITH: [on painkillers] "I'm trying to choose between two men."
ADDISON: [turns to leave] "Okay. Well. Good luck with that!"
MEREDITH: "How did you know Derek was the one?"
ADDISON: "Excuse me?"
MEREDITH: "I know you hate me and you don't owe me anything. Nothing. No... What was I saying-"
ADDISON: "Derek."
MEREDITH: "Right, I want him to be the one. But I would know if he was the one, right? You knew, right?"
ADDISON: "You don't... I didn't. I didn't know. It's just... Derek's the kinda guy I just knew wouldn't hurt me. Not on purpose anyway. Not the way I hurt him."
MEREDITH: "He hurt me, when he chose you."
ADDISON: [sighs] "I should have let him go. I should have stepped aside, been a better person. I should've a lot of things."
MEREDITH: "Me too, a lot of things."

FINN: "So its Derek?"
MEREDITH: "I'm sorry."
FINN: "Can I ask why?"
MEREDITH: "You are a great guy. You're a wonderful guy. And you may even be the better guy, but-"
FINN: "He's the one."
MEREDITH: "I wish he wasn't."
FINN: "He's gonna hurt you again. And when he does... I won't be here. Take care of yourself, Meredith."

MEREDITH: "How come we never talked like this before?"
ADDISON: "The only reason I am talking like this now is because I know that you won't remember a single word of this once the drugs wear off."

MEREDITH: "Am I the only one who remembers the last time George scrubbed in on an appendectomy? He almost killed the guy. Sorry George."

MEREDITH: "Now all my boys are here! You’re all so handsome, and such good kissers."
GEORGE: "Oh. God."
FINN: "Excuse me?"
GEORGE: "She’s on drugs."
MEREDITH: "He's an excellent kisser!"
FINN: "You two... dated?"
DEREK: "You didn't know?"
MEREDITH: "It wasn't a date so much as a... disastrously uncomfortable sexual experience."

MEREDITH: [after throwing up] "I'm fine."
DEREK: "You're burning up. You don't look fine. You look beautiful, but you don't look fine."
CRISTINA: "Now I'm gonna throw up."

MEREDITH: "If I did die today, I'd only be remembered as the slutty intern who dated two doctors."
CRISTINA: "No, one doctor and one vet."
MEREDITH: "Derek, Finn, Derek, Finn. I'd die as the girl who couldn't make a choice, right?"
CRISTINA: "Probably. But none of that matters, because you'll be dead."

MEREDITH: "You're a good friend."
CRISTINA: "So high right now."
MEREDITH: "Actually, you're my best friend in the whole entire world."
CRISTINA: "I just feel sorry for you."
MEREDITH: "Why? Because I could die today?"
CRISTINA: "This is why I hate being around stoned people."

DEREK: "You deserve to be with somebody who makes you happy. Somebody who doesn't complicate your life. Somebody who won't hurt you. He's the better guy. [pauses] Finn's the better guy."
MEREDITH: "Derek?"
DEREK: "I'm walking away."

MEREDITH: "McSteamy! Woo hoo!"
MARK: "McSteamy? That's what you're calling me now?"
MEREDITH: "Yes... but I don't think you are supposed to know that."
MARK: "How's my favorite dirty mistress?"
MEREDITH: "No, now I'm an adulterous whore!"

ADDISON: "You bellowed, Dr. Grey?"
MEREDITH: "Hi!"
ADDISON: "You certainly are."

MEREDITH: [to Miranda] "You're pretty!"

MEREDITH: "Dr. Bailey, all my boyfriends are here!"

MEREDITH: [on morphine] "Oh, can I just say how much it helps that I am on drugs right now?"

CRISTINA: "So, who's the father?"
MEREDITH: "I can't be pregnant, can I?"
CRISTINA: "Aw, a McBaby!"

MEREDITH: "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 am waxed and plucked and I have a clean top on. And the two of you are looking at each other."
DEREK: "Meredith..."
MEREDITH: "No, my fantasy is not two men looking at each other."
FINN: "We didn't...."
MEREDITH: "No talking until one of you figures out how to put on a date. I want heat! I want romance! Damn it, I want to feel like a freaking lady!"

MEREDITH: "What exactly is going on here?"
DEREK: "He's crashing our date."
FINN: "Well, where do you think I got that idea?"
DEREK: "I didn't crash your date, it was professional."
FINN: "You can't operate without her?"
DEREK: "I certainly operate well with her."

MEREDITH: "Megan? Oh... hi."
ADDISON: "Weren't you just up on 3?"
MEREDITH: "Well we lost a patient, a little girl. And I was just trying..."
ADDISON: "Why don't you pick a floor and stay on it and I'll pick a floor and stay on that becuase I really need a moment or two without you. Your face pops up in my head and your panties show up in my husband's pocket, really, you're everywhere, and I need a moment or two without you."
MEREDITH: "I get that."
ADDISON: "Thanks."

MEREDITH: "I'm an Intern, I still have a lot to learn."
FINN: "Apparently, so do I."

MEREDITH: "I'm dating. And it comes with snacks."

MEREDITH: "What's that?"
FINN: "It's for you. It's coffee cake, best in the Northwest. I thought I would soften you up. So when I'm asking you for dinner tonight, you have to say yes."
CRISTINA: "Dinner? Tonight? How about that. Are you free tonight? Are you?"
MEREDITH: "Actually, I'm not free tonight."
FINN: "Oh. Okay. How about lunch then?"

MEREDITH: "Hey!"
FINN: "I was in the neighborhood. Well, really I wasn't, but you are worth the detour."
MEREDITH: "I had a dream about you last night."
FINN: "Was it a good dream?
MEREDITH: "It was."
FINN: "What was I doing?"
CRISTINA: "Yeah, Mer, what was he doing?"

DEREK: "Hey."
MEREDITH: "Hi. I had a dream about you last night."
DEREK: "You did? What was I doing, bringing you coffee?"
MEREDITH: "You were definitely not bringing any coffee. But coffee is good."

MEREDITH: "You brought Izzie food?"
FINN: "Yes."
MEREDITH: "Why?"
FINN: "Because when Liz, my wife, died, there was nothing anyone could say to make me feel better. But the bringing of food... that actually helped."
MEREDITH: "You brought Izzie food!"

MEREDITH: [grabs George] "George! Callie is hot. She's really sexy, almost dirty hot. And she's hot for you. In my opinion you could keep using the darts as a weapons or you could go get lucky with the sexy hot dirty girl."
[George leaves and Cristina enters]
CRISTINA: "Where's he going?"
MEREDITH: "To get laid."
CRISTINA: "There's something wrong in the world when bambi's getting laid and I can't get five minutes alone with Burke."

MEREDITH: "I'll tell him."
CALLIE: "What?"
MEREDITH: "About the panties!"
CALLIE: "No. Are you kidding? He's jealous!"

CRISTINA: "His mother rivals my mother and that's saying something. Both of them, dark and evil."
MEREDITH: "I'm missing dirty stripper Cristina. She was fun and less angry."
CRISTINA: "I miss philandering whore Meredith. She was trashy, and much less idyllic."

DEREK: "I'm done, whatever you decide. I'm ending it with Addison today."
MEREDITH: "You've said this before."
DEREK: "I know, but this time I mean it. I'm gonna come clean just as soon as I see her."
MEREDITH: "You are?"
DEREK: "I am."

MEREDITH: "Normally I would like the things you said to me. Normally I would even think the bulletin board thing was funny."
DEREK: "Bulletin board thing? What are you talking about?"
MEREDITH: "But you're married. Which makes none of this normal. It makes me a home-wrecker and I hate the fact that I'm a home-wrecker."
DEREK: "Meredith. I'm not going to pressure you. Take all the time you need. Just so you have all the information. But my home was wrecked way before you came into the picture. I am just now done trying to rebuild it."

DEREK: "This is a change. From the elevator. A little bit more public. I like that."
MEREDITH: "You're married. You're married and you said things to me."

[whispering about the panties]
CRISTINA: "Yours?"
MEREDITH: "This is bad, this isn't good."
CRISTINA: "You better claim them. She thinks they are mine. Claim them!"
MEREDITH: "No!"
MIRANDA: "I know it's one of you. It's always one of mine. Always."

CRISTINA: Oh you're one to talk. Sleeping with 2 men.
MEREDITH: Wrong. Not sleeping with either one of them. Not until I pick one. If I haven't made a decision by the end of the day, I'm flipping a coin. A girl can only hold out for so long.
CRISTINA: And somehow I'm the dirty stripper? Huh?!
MIRANDA: You two have time to round or are you too busy getting naked on hospital property?
CRISTINA: I wasn't naked. I wasn't naked!

MEREDITH: It's not Tyler's fault you're a dirty, dirty stripper.
CRISTINA: You heard?
MEREDITH: Everyone heard. Stripper.

[in flashback]
JOE: "Straight tequila? Really? You are going to be sorry in the morning."
MEREDITH: "I'm always sorry in the morning. But tomorrow is my first day at work, so keep 'em coming."
DEREK: "Double scotch, single malt please. [To Meredith] So, is this a good place to hang out?"
MEREDITH: "I wouldn't know, never been here before."
DEREK: "You know what? I haven't either. First time here. I'm new in town. Never been to Seattle. New job soon. Ah, you're ignoring me."
MEREDITH: "Trying to."

IZZIE: "How did this happen? Why did we end up here? Why am I alone? Where's Denny?"
MEREDITH: "You're not alone, Izz."

CRISTINA: "What is wrong with you?"
MEREDITH: "Everything with me is fine, it's Izzie we're worried about."
CRISTINA: "Oh, what did you do?"
MEREDITH: "Denny died. Burke got shot. Let's just have a little perspective and realize that what I did was a tiny, slightly small..."
CRISTINA: "Oh, whatever, just spit it out!"
MEREDITH: "I lost my panties, last night."

CRISTINA: "Why are you making sandwiches?"
MEREDITH: "It's what you do when someone dies, you cook."
CRISTINA: "I know what to do when someone dies. I am a Jew."

[in flashback]
DEREK: "I'm the kind of guy you have to get to know to love."
MEREDITH: "So you're saying if I get to know you, I'll love you?"
DEREK: "That's right."
MEREDITH: "Wow, you really love yourself!"

FINN: "We never said we were exclusive..."
MEREDITH: "But you have plans..."
FINN: "I'm not saying I'm not pissed off."

MEREDITH: "Finn-"
FINN: "I said we weren't exclusive. Thats all I wanted to say... Oh, and this: I know you think you're scary and damaged. It makes you think you don't deserve good things, but you do. And Derek, he's bad for you. But me, I'm a good thing. And if this is a race, if there is a ring, my hat is in.

[in flashback]
Meredith: I have no story. I'm just a girl in a bar.
Derek: I'm just a guy in a bar

Meredith: What, so all of a sudden I'm the president of people with crappy lives?

MEREDITH: "There’s a line, between friends and not friends. And if I tell you this, if I tell you this horrible thing, then you have to react as my friend. Not as my not friend."
DEREK: "I can do that. Alright, tell me what’s wrong, I'll tell you how to fix it."
MEREDITH: "Okay, are you ready?"
DEREK: "I’m ready."

MEREDITH: "You know, at some point, you are going to have to talk to me."
GEORGE: "I’m going to take the stairs."

MEREDITH: "So... just friends."
DEREK: "Just friends. You know, technically you tell friends stuff, after which we share the moments of our lives."
MEREDITH: "I'll keep that in mind next time I do a horrible thing."
DEREK: "No, really, it's okay. I don't want to know. Even if I beg, don’t tell me."

MEREDITH: "She had an affair."
THATCHER: "Yes."
MEREDITH: "Why didn’t you stay and fight for us."
THATCHER: "I did. I tried."
MEREDITH: "Why didn’t you try harder? You just left."
THATCHER: "Meredith, is there anything that you need? Anything at all?"
MEREDITH: "No. I don’t need anything from you."

PRESTON: "Well that’s not for you to decide, Dr. Grey. He asked you for something. And you told him you would do it. If you don’t, that doesn’t make you noble. That makes you a liar ... Did you know she kept her apartment?"
MEREDITH: "Yeah, I did. Sorry."

MEREDITH: "Why do people cheat?"
DEREK: "That’s a good question."
MEREDITH: "Why do you think she cheated on you? Were you different then? Were you a bad husband?"
DEREK: "I was... I was just a little absent. Not that that’s an excuse for her."
MEREDITH: "Do you think things would have been different if you had kids?"
DEREK: "Do I think she wouldn’t have cheated? I don’t know."

ELLIS: "I'm exhausted."
MEREDITH: "Ugh... Me too."
ELLIS: "I was going at it all night in the on-call room, what's your excuse?"
MEREDITH [stunned] "Mom!"
ELLIS: "That man makes me purr like a kitten."
MEREDITH: "Mom!"
ELLIS: "When he's not making me growl like a tiger."
MEREDITH: "Stop!"

MEREDITH: "Ow. Ow. Ow."
IZZIE: "What are you doing?"
MEREDITH: "I'm inserting my banana bag. It sounds vaguely dirty, but it's not."

MEREDITH: "I seem to be drunk. I was off-duty."
MIRANDA: "So was I. Anybody else half in the bottle?"

MEREDITH: "Dude, you lost your mojo."
ALEX: "Excuse you?"
MEREDITH: "I was trying to talk boy."
ALEX: "O'Malley plugs a hole with his finger and everyone walks around like he's some kind of hero. I have one off day-"
MEREDITH: "You chickened out."
ALEX: "I hesitated briefly."
MEREDITH: "Why didn't you kiss Izzie?"
ALEX: "And now I'm leaving."

MEREDITH: "Addison yelling at you in front of a patient?"
ALEX: "She didn't exactly yell... Fine, she's Satan’s whore."
MEREDITH: "Thank you. So, did you yell back?"
ALEX: "No."

DYLAN: "Alright everybody. Let’s just keep placing one foot in front of the other. Nice and slow. Alright, Meredith? We’re almost there."
MEREDITH: "Okay."
DYLAN: "We’re almost there. Nice and easy, right? Alright, let’s go. Nice and slow."
CRISTINA: "You had to say you’re going to die today."
MEREDITH: "I told you."

MEREDITH: "Okay -- you know when you don't need to be made fun of? Like when you have your hand inside a body that's got a bomb in it and a stranger is Velcro-ing a flak jacket to your boobs."

PRESTON: "I know it was probably you who convinced Cristina. She's very strong, but she listens to you. If you told her to move in... Anyway. Thank you."
MEREDITH: "No problem."

MEREDITH: "You have an increased level of serotonin in the blood."
PRESTON: "Which creates a false sense of euphoria."
TOM: "So Naomi’s not actually this happy? She just has a tumor?"
PRESTON: "Exactly."
TOM: "Thank God!"
NAOMI: "You people with your tumors. I tell you, I’m infected with love!"

MEREDITH: "Everybody's a liar."

GEORGE: "I’m putting my foot down, either the dog moves out or I do. Foot, down, now. Me or the dog, which is it? [pauses] You hesitated! She hesitated!"
IZZIE: "You hesitated?"
MEREDITH: "I didn’t hesitate, I was thinking."
GEORGE: "You have to think about it? Fine, I’m moving out right now. Later, I’m moving out later. Right now, I have rounds."

DEREK: "I'm just trying to help."
MEREDITH: "Well, see this? What you’re doing, being dreamy? It doesn't help. It hurts me. It messes with my head. You have a wife to go home to and I'm guessing she has no idea where you are right now."
DEREK: "No, she doesn't."
MEREDITH: "That's what I thought."


MEREDITH: "What are you doing here?"
DEREK: "There is a clinical trial to slow the progression of early onset Alzheimer's."
MEREDITH: "Okay. Me, you can screw with. My mother? No. Not acceptable."

DEREK: "Somewhere out there is a steak with your name on it, and maybe a bottle of wine."
MEREDITH: "This is why I keep you around."

CRISTINA: "Okay, I’m in."
MEREDITH: "I am so not involved in this."
CRISTINA: "Meredith, this is Fight Club, nobody talks about it."

DEREK: "Maybe we should, you know, make some rules."
MEREDITH: "We should."
DEREK: "Okay."
MEREDITH: "Okay."
DEREK: "Just for the record... I like the glow-in-the-dark ones."
MEREDITH: [laughs] "I bet you do."

MEREDITH: "So just for the record, you’d tell me if I need to get tested, right?"
DEREK: [whispers] "You think I have syphilis?"
MEREDITH: "No, I don't. It's just... I mean we never made any rules or anything... we never said we had rules and I wouldn’t hold it against you."
DEREK: "When would I have time to go out and get syphilis? You’re a handful enough as it is. And besides, we’re practically a condom ad."
MEREDITH: "Yeah...But no more glow-in-the-dark ones."

DEREK: "Can you keep a secret?"
MEREDITH: "Better than you think."

CRISTINA: "Oh, what are we doing?"
IZZIE: "We are saving George from a future of festering sores and insanity."
CRISTINA: "Cute butt."
MEREDITH: "Told you."
IZZIE: "It is cute. Like a baby's."
GEORGE: "You know I've spent hours, days, years, imagining myself half naked in a room with three women? The reality is so much better."

GEORGE: "You know what? Forget this."
ALEX: "Hey, do you wanna get rid of the syph or not? Then shut up and drop it."
GEORGE: "Can't believe I'm doing this." [sees Mer] "Meredith! Go away!"
MEREDITH: "Oh, George. I thought you could use some moral support."
GEORGE: "No. No moral support. I'm indisposed here!"
MEREDITH: "George. It's not a big deal. And you have a cute butt."
ALEX: "I have a cute butt too. Want to see?"
MEREDITH: "Oh, get out. You're doing it wrong."
ALEX: "Be my guest."
GEORGE: "What? Alex. Alex! What!? Hey!"

ALEX: "Everybody’s got a secret. Just be glad yours is out in the open."
CRISTINA: "Oh yeah, Alex? What’s yours?"
ALEX: "Show me yours and I'll show you mine. I bet you've got some seriously kinky skeletons in your closet."
CRISTINA: "What’s in my closet is none of your business."
IZZIE: "Well, I don't have any secrets, my life is boring."
MEREDITH: "Everybody’s got something to hide."

IZZIE: "You know what? It's no big deal, you don't have to lie. I get it. You have needs."
MEREDITH: "What is going on out here?"
GEORGE: "Nothing." [walks away]
IZZIE: [to Meredith] "He's freaked out because I caught him playing with little Jimmy and the twins."
GEORGE: [Turns around] "I have a girlfriend!"
IZZIE: [laughs] "Okay."
DEREK [walks out of Meredith's room] "It sounds like fun out here."

MEREDITH: "I tried to talk Dr. Shepherd out of that clot surgery. What is wrong with me?"
ALEX: "Basically, you tried to kill a guy."
CRISTINA: [to Alex] "Basically, you're an ass."

MEREDITH: "You know, you keep taking everything on faith. How do you know what’s real and what’s not?"
DEREK: "You just do. You know some people would call this a relationship. Time to exchange keys, leave your toothbrush over."
MEREDITH: "Who, who would call it that?"
DEREK: "Me, I would."
MEREDITH: "And I’m supposed to believe you. Show me something. Give me a reason to believe."

MEREDITH: "Well, you were wrong. You don't always get what you expect do you."

MEREDITH: "Where'd you grow up? What's your favorite flavor of ice cream? Where'd you spend your summer vacations?"
DEREK: "Oh, lighten up. It'll be good for your blood pressure."
MEREDITH: "Don't you tell me to lighten up. I'll lighten up when I... feel light."

MEREDITH: "Give me something to go on. Anything! What are your grandparents’ names?"
DEREK: "I don't have grandparents."

MEREDITH: "I want facts, and until I get them, my pants are staying on."
DEREK: "Or you could just roll with it, be flexible. See what happens."
MEREDITH: "I'm not flexible."
DEREK: [laughs] "Now there I disagree... We'll find these things out. That's the fun part, you know? That's the gravy."

MEREDITH: "You know 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’d carry you away to a castle on a hill. You’d lie in your bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa clause, the tooth fairy, prince charming -- they were so close you could taste them. But eventually you grow up and 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, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely because almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope and faith that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true."

DEREK: "Hey."
MEREDITH: "Hey! You okay? You seem ..."
DEREK: "Yeah. You know... holidays."
MEREDITH: "Oh. Yeah. I do know."

MEREDITH: [to Alex] "Enough with the ego, you big baby! I gave up a surgery for this! Now. Like I said, it hurts here, and here, and back here. Oh, and this morning? I noticed my poop was a funny grayish color."

MEREDITH: "No. I can't, I'm seeing someone."
ALEX: "Look, if you don't want to go out with me just say so, you don't need to lie."
MEREDITH: "Oh, okay. I don't want to go out with you... and I think I might be seeing someone."

MEREDITH: "Are you really as shallow and callous as you seem?"
ALEX: "Want to grab a drink and hear about my secret pain?"
MEREDITH: "Does that line ever work for you?"
ALEX: "Sometimes."

MEREDITH: "Dr. Shepherd? I'm sorry I called you a jackass."
DEREK: [pauses] "You didn't."
MEREDITH: "Actually I did... twice."

CRISTINA: "If I stab this fork into his thigh, will I get in trouble?"
MEREDITH: "Not if you make it look like an accident."

CRISTINA: "Oh, please, a hot doctor wants to make you open up and say ah. It’s the American dream, stop whining about it."
MEREDITH: "No, there's no good that can come from sleeping with your boss."

DEREK: "Do you want me to be a better guy?"
MEREDITH: "Yes.... No. Crap! I'm late."
DEREK: "Take your time. Think about it."

DEREK: "Are we gonna talk about this?"
MEREDITH: "No."
DEREK: "About us and Bailey and what she saw."
MEREDITH: "I don't need to talk about it I experienced it... naked."
DEREK: "This is getting complicated."
MEREDITH: "Complicated for me. I'm the intern sleeping with the attending. Bailey isn't speaking to me anymore."

MEREDITH: [sees Derek] "Crap.
DEREK: "Crap?"
MEREDITH: "Hi! I'm late."
DEREK: "You're avoiding me."
MEREDITH: "Yes, but also late."

IZZIE: [comes home, sees Meredith drunk] "Holy Mother of Destruction."
MEREDITH: "You missed Doctor Palooza."
IZZIE: "Apparently you didn't."
MEREDITH: "I should probably never speak to you again."

DEREK: [in the car] "Sounds like the party's winding down. We should probably sneak inside now."
MEREDITH: "I think we've done enough sneaking for tonight. It was good sneaking, but enough sneaking."
DEREK: "Yeah, I'd say we're pretty good sneakers."
MIRANDA: [knocks on the window] "You mind moving this tail wagon? You are blocking me in."
DEREK: "Apparently not good enough."

DEREK: [arrives at the party] "You know, in some states, you could get arrested for that... So you blew me off for a bottle of tequila? Tequila's no good for you. It doesn't call, doesn't write, not nearly as much fun to wake up to."
MEREDITH: [kisses him] "Take me for a ride, Derek."

HANK: "Is, uh, Izzie Stevens..."
CRISTINA: "You must be Hank... he's very large and hockey-like. No, Izzie's not here right now."
GEORGE: "You and Izzie will give birth to very tall blonde people. Kind of like Barbies."
HANK: "Izzie said she was going to be at home, she didn't say there was gonna be a party."
MEREDITH: "Which pisses both of us off. Would you like some tequila? It helps."
HANK: "When do you think she’s gonna get here?"
MEREDITH: "Don’t know. But we’re low on ice, Hank."
HANK: "I’m serious."
MEREDITH: "So am I. We’re interns, Hank. Hospital owns us. It’s what we do."
HANK: [leaves]
GEORGE: "Bye."
MEREDITH: "Nice to meet you."

MEREDITH: [playing cards] "Why did we want to be surgeons anyway?"
GEORGE: "Surgery is very serious business."
CRISTINA: [burps]
GEORGE: "Full house."
CRISTINA: "Royal flush. Get naked, baby boy!"

MEREDITH: "Where is Izzie?!"
GEORGE: "She didn’t clear it with you?"
MEREDITH: "This was supposed to be a meet-the-boyfriend, get together little thing."
GEORGE: "I... Iz-izzie has a lot of friends."
MEREDITH: "Izzie doesn’t know this many people."
GEORGE: "I told her to clear it with you."
MEREDITH: "I can’t handle this."
GEORGE: "You want me to kick everyone out? I’m gonna kick everyone out."
CRISTINA: [drunk] "Baby! You made it! Woo!"
MEREDITH: [pauses] "Screw it."

MEREDITH: "Izzie I'm going to kill you."

DEREK: "Forget about the party."
MEREDITH: "You know about the party?"
DEREK: "Your friends will be at the party. You and I can be alone somewhere else."
MEREDITH: "How do you know about the party?"
DEREK: "Thanks for not inviting me, by the way. That felt good. Dinner, think about dinner, perfect opportunity."

DEREK: "Well, let me take you out to dinner tonight. You can tell me all about it. Real food, waiters, big chunks of carbs in a basket."
MEREDITH: "I can’t."

MEREDITH: "You're still you?"
DEREK: "I'm still me."

IZZIE: "You tell me to cut my losses, that I'm better off without him, and as soon as I turn my back..."
MEREDITH: "C'mon! Alex and I are kind of friends."
IZZIE: "Since when? When did you and Alex become friends?"
MEREDITH: "Don't you think you're overreacting? It's not like I'm going to sleep with him."
IZZIE: "Why not, you've slept with everyone else."

MEREDITH: "So, you're giving up your trailer."
DEREK: "I'm not giving up the trailer. Is Addison telling people that I'm giving up the trailer?"
MEREDITH: "It's just funny, I just never would have pegged you as that guy."
DEREK: "What guy?"
MEREDITH: "You know. The marble bath, private pool, gated community guy."
DEREK: "Don't peg me. I'm not peggable."
MEREDITH: "You're pegged. Deal with it."

GEORGE: "You know, you can't say that you weren't warned. Alex has always been Alex."
MEREDITH: "You dodged a bullet, Izz. You're better off without him."
CRISTINA: "Why are you even surprised? You sleep with a snake, you get bit."
IZZIE: "Thanks, guys... for the support."

IZZIE: [to Mer] "He didn't buy them."
MEREDITH [to George] "You didn't buy them?"
GEORGE: "Men don't buy tampons!"
IZZIE: [opens shower door, again] "You know what? You're gonna have to get over the whole man thing, George! We're women! We have vaginas! Get used to it!"
GEORGE: [on the bathtub floor] "I am not your sister!"

GEORGE: "There needs to be some rules."
MEREDITH: "So, what? So we can around in our underwear on alternate Tuesdays? Or you could see bras, but not panties? Or are you talking Amish rules? Because if you think you're gonna get Izzie to cover herself-"
GEORGE: "The amount of flesh exposed is not the point. You have to do something, it's your house."
MEREDITH: "It's my mother's house."
GEORGE: "Meredith!"
MEREDITH: "Do you like Izzie? Is that was this is about? You have a crush on Izzie?"
GEORGE: "Izzie? No! I don't like Izzie. No! She's not the one I'm attracted to."
MEREDITH: "Not the one. So there's a one?"

DEREK: "I thought I might buy you breakfast before your rounds."
MEREDITH: "I've already eaten."
DEREK: "Oh? What'd you have?"
MEREDITH: "None of your business."
DEREK: "Cereal person? Straight out of the box or are you all fruit and fibery? Pancakes! Do you like pancakes?"
MEREDITH: "Fine, leftover grilled cheese. Curiosity satisfied?"
DEREK: "That’s sad. It's pathetic. A good day starts with a good breakfast."

GEORGE: "I don't think you understand. Me: gonads! You: ovaries!"
IZZIE: [laughing] "That reminds me. We are out of tampons."
GEORGE: "You're parading through the bathroom in your underwear, while I'm naked in the shower!"
IZZIE: "Will you add it to your list, please?"
GEORGE: "What?"
IZZIE: "Tampons!"
MEREDITH: "To the list. It's your turn."
GEORGE: "I am a man! I don't buy girl products. I don't want you walking in while I'm in the shower. And I don't want to see you in your underwear!"
IZZIE: "It doesn't bother me, okay? Look at me in my underwear, George. Take your time, it's no big deal."

STEVE: "Hey, maybe when I get out of here, we could..."
MEREDITH: "I don't think so. You know, when I saw you at Joe's, I was just looking for a replacement. Looking for something to make me feel better. You deserve better than that."

DEREK: "Doesn't look like there's any nerve damage. There shouldn't be any long-term effect. I'd wait a few weeks before I tested it out, though."
MEREDITH: "Funny. You're a funny man."
DEREK: "I just didn't know you two were dating."
MEREDITH: "You knew it would happen eventually."
DEREK: "Eventually feels a lot different than actually."
MEREDITH: "Yeah, I guess it does."
DEREK: "It's surprisingly painful."
MEREDITH: "It gets better."
DEREK: "Does it?"

MEREDITH: "I was staring at the ceiling in abject horror."

GEORGE: "Maybe it's a... a m-m-matter of... volume?"
MEREDITH: "Oh, so now I'm a slut?"
GEORGE: "I think you're taking some risks. I think you'll find yourself in some guy's basement being ordered to put the lotion on the skin or you'll get the hose again."

MEREDITH: "Please? I would do it for you."
CRISTINA: "You would give Burke an enema?"
MEREDITH: "Yes!"
CRISTINA: [sarcastically] "Uh-huh."
MEREDITH: "Maybe. No. But that's not the point."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, okay. Here's how it goes. I do this for you, and you do every enema I'm assigned to for an entire month."
MEREDITH: "Deal!"
CRISTINA: "Wow, you really don't want to do this."

MEREDITH: "What are you doing here... um... Steve?"
STEVE: "I'm having a little problem."
CRISTINA: "Steve, Steve?"
STEVE: "Actually, I'm having a big problem."
MEREDITH: What?
CRISTINA: [staring] "Steve! Hi, Cristina."
STEVE: [to Mer] "Ever since you...and I... um... it won't go away."
MEREDITH: [sees her staring] "Cristina!"
CRISTINA: "What? It's right there, looking at me! There are so many things I could say right now. Champ!"


CRISTINA: [holds up key]
MEREDITH: "Burke keyed you?"
CRISTINA: "I got freaking keyed before coffee."
MEREDITH: "What is wrong with them?"
CRISTINA: "They're like these 1950s debutantes, one dance and there's a shotgun to your head."

MEREDITH: [to Cristina] "They always look so sad when I kick them out. Seriously, why do guys not understand that when you pick them up in a bar and take them home for sex, that there are no picket fences or kids in your future?"

MEREDITH: "You're going through his stuff, aren't you?"
CRISTINA: "There's no stuff to go through. It's a freak show. I mean, you can do surgery in here. Oh, and he arranges his books using the Dewey Decimal System! Mer, I'm scared."
MEREDITH: "Get out, get out of the house! Now."

MEREDITH: "When I get back, you won't be here, so... goodbye... Steve."

DEREK: "It's not the chase."
MEREDITH: "What?"
DEREK: "You and me. It is not the thrill of the chase. It's not a game. It's... it's your tiny ineffectual fists. And your hair."
MEREDITH: "My hair?"
DEREK: "It smells nice. And you're very, very bossy. It keeps me in line."
MEREDITH: "I'm still not going out with you."
DEREK: [smiles] "You say that now."

MEREDITH: [to Alex] "You're just pissed that two women got the harvest."
ALEX: "I'm just pissed that anyone except me got the harvest. Boobs in no way factor into this. Unless you want to show me yours..."
MEREDITH: "I'm going to become a lesbian."
CRISTINA: "Me too."

GEORGE: "I ordered Chinese food!"
MEREDITH: "I hate Chinese food!"

ALEX: "God, I smell good! You know what, it's the smell of an open heart surgery. It is awesome. It. Is. Awesome! You gotta smell me."
MEREDITH: "I don't want to smell you."
ALEX: [wraps arms around Mer] "Oh, yes you do!"
MEREDITH: [shoves Alex] "You've gotta to be kidding me! I've got more important things to deal with than you. I've got roommates, boy problems and family problems... You wanna act like a little frat boy bitch, that's fine. You wanna take credit for your saves and everybody elses, that's fine too. Just stay out of my face! And for the record you smell like crap!" [Derek walks in]
ALEX: [shrugs] "She attacked me." [Meredith attacks]
DEREK: [steps in] "Meredith, Meredith!" [to Alex] "You know, you might want to leave, before I change my mind and let her beat you to a pulp with her tiny, ineffectual fists."

MEREDITH: "We are SO going to hell. Burke's sending us straight to hell."
CRISTINA: "On the express train."

DEREK: "You're asking for my advice? Now who’s chasing who?"
MEREDITH: "Not funny, this is important."

DEREK: "You make out with patients now?"
MEREDITH: "What, are you jealous?"
DEREK: "I don't get jealous."
MEREDITH: "We had sex. Once."
DEREK: "And we kissed in an elevator."
MEREDITH: "And we kissed in an elevator. Once."
DEREK: "No, seriously. Go out with me."
MEREDITH: "No."
DEREK: "You know, I almost died today. Yeah, I came like this close. How would you feel if I died and you didn't get a chance to go out with me?"
MEREDITH: "Get over yourself already."
DEREK: "C’mon!"
MEREDITH: "It’s the chase, isn't it?"
DEREK: "What?"
MEREDITH: "The thrill of the chase. I've been wondering to myself, why are you so hell-bent on getting me to go out with you? You know you're my boss. You know it’s against the rules. You know I keep saying no. It’s the chase."
DEREK: "Well... its fun isn't it?"
MEREDITH: "You see! This is a game to you, but not to me. Because, unlike you, I still have something to prove."

VIPER: [kisses Meredith] "That was for good luck. Don't worry darling. You'll see me again."
MEREDITH: "For your sake, I hope not!"

MEREDITH: "Well, you realize you're leaving against medical advice and I strongly urge you to stay."
VIPER: "The frat guy said I could go."
MEREDITH: The frat guy is an ass. You at least have to sign an AMA form."
VIPER: "Fine, I will do anything you want me to."
MEREDITH: "What is with you guys and your need to dirty everything up?"
VIPER: "I don't know. Maybe it’s the testosterone, eh?"
MEREDITH: "Maybe, you might want to see a doctor about that too."

MEREDITH: "Look, you really have to let me take you for some tests. Run a CT. You could have internal bleeding."
VIPER: "No, thank you, I’ve got a race to get back to."
MEREDITH: "Why? You can't win now anyway."
VIPER: "There’s a party at the finish line. Want to meet me there?"
MEREDITH: [smiles] "One test. A CT. I'll have you out of here in an hour."
VIPER: "Can't do it, gotta go!"

VIPER: "You've got a nice touch. And by the way, you are good looking, babe."
MEREDITH: "Seriously, do you actually think you have a shot here?"
VIPER: "I actually think I have a shot anywhere."

MEREDITH: "I feel like one of those people who are so freaking miserable that they can't be around normal people. Like I'll infect the happy people. Like I'm some miserable, diseased, dirty ex-mistress."

MEREDITH: [about her patient] "He was looking at me."
DEREK: "He wasn't looking at you."
MEREDITH: "He was!"
DEREK: "The CT report says he wasn't."
MEREDITH: "Do you want to argue with what I know I saw?"
DEREK: "No, Meredith. I don't want to argue with you any more."

DEREK: "So, it’s intense. This thing I have. For ferry boats, I mean."
MEREDITH: "I am so taking the stairs this time."
DEREK: "No self control. It’s sad. Really."

MEREDITH: "Alright... George and Izzie, you can move into the house."
IZZIE: "Yes!"
GEORGE: "I can't believe you caved!"
MEREDITH: "I can't believe I caved."
CRISTINA: "I blame the babies. They make you toxic."

DEREK: "So we're kissing but we're not dating?"
MEREDITH: "I knew this was going to come up."
DEREK: "Don't get me wrong, I like the kissing. I'm all for the kissing. More kissing, I say!"
MEREDITH: "I have no idea what that was about."
DEREK: "Is it going to happen again? Let me know next time. I'll bring breath mints. Put a condom in my wallet."
MEREDITH: "Shut up. Now."

CRISTINA: "You know, it's like there's a wall. The attendings and the residents are over there being surgeons, and we're over here being-"
MEREDITH: "Suturing, code-running, lab-delivering penis minders."
ALEX: "I hate being an intern."

MEREDITH: "So anyway, the crap crime scene guy can't get out here 'til tomorrow, so I get to spend the night with my penis!" [pauses] "Alex, don’t say it."
ALEX: "It was too easy anyway."

MIRANDA: "So, doctors, why aren't we attempting to reattach the severed penis?"
CRISTINA: "Because teeth don't slice, they tear. If she had wanted to chop it off, things might be different. Plus, the digestive juices didn't leave much of the flesh to work with."
MIRANDA: "So, how do we proceed?"
CRISTINA: "Sew him up... minus a large part of the family jewels."
MIRANDA: "The outlook?"
MEREDITH: "He'll be urinating out of bag for a very long time."
CRISTINA: "Not to mention he'll never be able to have sex again."
MEREDITH: [sarcastically] "Oh, too bad."
CRISTINA: "A shame."
MIRANDA: "Let's all take a moment to grieve."

GEORGE: "You know what you need?"
MEREDITH: "No... It’s sick and twisted. We said last time was the last time."
GEORGE: "Nancy Reagan lied. You can't just say no. C’mon."
MEREDITH: "You know what would happen if anyone knew?"
GEORGE: "I'm doing it. You can come with me or you can stay here and be miserable."

GEORGE: [looking at babies] "Look at you! You’re so cute with your little yellow hat!"
MEREDITH: [smiles] "You are such a woman."

MEREDITH: "We have... custody of a penis?"
RICHARD: "Yes. Until the cops come for it."
MEREDITH: "Okay, well, what am I supposed to do with the penis?"

CRISTINA: "What are you doing?"
MEREDITH: "Oh, you know. Just sitting here with my penis."

PRESTON: "What the... what the hell is this? Does anybody know what this is?"
MEREDITH: "Oh my God."
PRESTON: [holds body part] "What is it, Grey?"
MEREDITH: "She bit it off-"
PRESTON: "What is it? Spit it out, Grey."
MEREDITH: "That's his.. penis."

CRISTINA: "You should get some sleep, you look like crap."
MEREDITH: "I look better than you."
CRISTINA: "That’s not possible."

MEREDITH: "We should forget it ever happened."
DEREK: "What? You sleeping with me last night? Or you throwing me out this morning? 'Cause both are fond memories I'd like to hang on to."
MEREDITH: "No, there will be no more memories. I'm not the girl in the bar anymore and you're not the guy. This can't exist. You get that, right?"
DEREK: "You took advantage of me and now you want to forget it?"
MEREDITH: "I did not take-"
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 I was very good looking. I had on my red shirt, my good-looking shirt, and you took advantage."
MEREDITH: "I did not!"
DEREK: "Would you like to take advantage again, say Friday night?"

MEREDITH: "Did you let me scrub in for this operation because I slept with you?"
DEREK: "Yes. Just kidding."

CRISTINA: [about George] "Total 007."
IZZIE: "007? What's 007?"
MEREDITH: "Licensed to kill."

GEORGE: "007. They're calling me 007, aren't they?"
MEREDITH: "No one's calling you 007."
GEORGE: "I was on the elevator and Murphy whispered 007."
CRISTINA: "Okay, how many times are we going to go through this, George? Five, ten? Give me a number or else I'm going to hit you."
GEORGE: "Murphy whispered 007 and everyone laughed."
IZZIE: "He wasn't talking about you."
GEORGE: "Are you sure?"
MEREDITH: "Would we lie to you?"
GEORGE: "Yes."

CRISTINA: "You know... don't be, don't do me any... don't do me any favors, its fine."
MEREDITH: "Cristina-"
CRISTINA: "You know what, you did a cut-throat thing, deal with it. Don't come to me for absolution. You want to be a shark, be a shark."
MEREDITH: "I'm not!"
CRISTINA: "Oh, oh, oh, yes you are. Only it makes you feel bad in your warm, gooey places."

MEREDITH: [about Derek] "You can't make a face, comment, or react in any way. We had sex."
CRISTINA: [about patient] "What about an aneurysm?"
MEREDITH: "No blood in the CT."
CRISTINA: "No drug use. No pregnancy. No trauma. Was he good? He looks like he’d be good. Was he any good?"

MEREDITH: "If I hadn't taken the Hippocratic Oath, I would Kevorkian her with my bare hands."

MEREDITH: "Just go to sleep."
KATIE: "I can't sleep, my head's all full."
MEREDITH: "That's called thinking. Go with it."

KATIE: "You are so lost."
MEREDITH: "I am not lost. Okay?"

CRISTINA: "That's the Nazi?"
GEORGE: "I thought the Nazi would be a man."
MEREDITH: "I thought the Nazi would be... a Nazi."
IZZIE: "Maybe it's professional jealousy. Maybe she's brilliant and they call her a Nazi because they're jealous. Maybe she's nice."
CRISTINA: "Let me guess. You're the model."

MEREDITH: "Look, I'm going to go upstairs and take a shower. Okay? And when I get back down here, you won't be here. So goodbye, um..."
DEREK: "Derek."
MEREDITH: "Derek! Right. Meredith."

MEREDITH: "You know, we don’t have to do the thing."
DEREK: "Oh, we can do anything you want."
MEREDITH: "No, the thing... exchange the details, pretend we care..."

DEREK: "This is..."
MEREDITH: "... Humiliating. On so many levels. You have to go."
DEREK: "Why don’t you just come back down here and we’ll pick up where we left off?"

ADDISON: [interrupts Meredith and Derek kissing] "Well, isn't this cozy? Can I join in, or are you not in to threesomes?"
MEREDITH: "I have to go."

MEREDITH: "I miss you."
DEREK: [pauses, whispers] "I can't."

MEREDITH: "I think you can't wait for someone to fly underneath you and save your life... I think you have to save yourself."

MEREDITH: "If it were me, I wouldn't even have the test. I mean, what's the point? We're all gonna die anyway, right?"

CRISTINA: "I've already spent an hour picking bird parts out of this guy. I'm over it."
GEORGE: "Carpe diem."
MEREDITH: "Right, you and my forehead. I'm beginning to look how I feel. Carpe that."
GEORGE: "This is the luckiest day in the world!"
CRISTINA: "Tell that to the bird."

MEREDITH: "My ex-boyfriend moved his wife to Seattle. Reason? To torture me."

RICHARD: "People! I know who did this, so you might as well come clean. I know!"
GEORGE: "With all due respect, sir, if you knew you wouldn't be asking us."
IZZIE: "I did it."
MEREDITH: "You have your suspicions, but you don't actually know."
CRISTINA: "Not for sure."
GEORGE: "And you can't do anything to any of us without proof, sir."

IZZIE: "I think it was a stroke. He was prone to blood clots. A clot could have formed on his sutures and traveled to his brain. It only takes a second."
MEREDITH: "Izzie-"
IZZIE: "Dr. Han did a beautiful job on the surgery. I don't know why I didn't think of blood clots. He died all alone. He was alone."
GEORGE: "There's nothing you could have done."
IZZIE: "I changed my dress three times. I wanted to look nice. I would have been here sooner. But I couldn't figure out which dress to wear."

DEREK: "What does this mean?"
MEREDITH: "Uh, I had panties on. Black ones. Do you see them?"
DEREK: "What does this mean?"
MEREDITH: "Fix your tie."
DEREK: "Meredith, what does this mean!?"

DEREK: "Meredith."
MEREDITH: "Leave me alone."
DEREK: "Meredith-"
MEREDITH: "Just leave me alone!"
DEREK: "I just want to make sure you're alright."
MEREDITH: "No! I'm not alright? Okay? Are you satisfied? I'm not alright. Because you have a wife, and you call me a whore, and our dog died, and now you're looking at me again. Stop looking at me."
DEREK: "I'm not looking at you. I am not looking at you."
MEREDITH: "You are looking at me. And you watch me. And Finn has plans. I like Finn. He's perfect for me, and I'm really trying here to be happy, and I feel like I can't breathe. I can't breathe with you looking at me like that, so just stop!"
DEREK: "You think I want to look at you? That I wouldn't rather be looking at my wife? I'm married. I have responsibilities. She doesn't drive me crazy. She doesn't make it impossible for me to feel normal. She doesn't make me sick to my stomach thinking about my veternarian touching her with his hands. Man, I would give anything to not be looking at you!"

FINN: "Liz... Liz was my wife. When she died... you do this thing where you stop making plans. Because you had plans but then there was a car crash and your plans disappeared so you just... I just try to get from sunup to sundown. That’s as far into the future as I can handle. I've been fine with that, I have, but right now, looking at you... damn, I have all kinds of plans. Don't freak out."
MEREDITH: "I'm not."
FINN: "You're not?"
MEREDITH: "No. You have plans."
FINN: "I have plans."

FINN: "You're a lot hotter than my last prom date."
MEREDITH: "Is that a compliment?"
FINN: "Maybe."
MEREDITH: "It feels like a compliment."
FINN: "Then it is."

RICHARD: "I've known you for a long time. I know your mother and father. And I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that you did not cut those LVAT wires. Meredith, I need you to tell me who did it."
MEREDITH: "I've been going over this and over this in my mind trying to piece this together. It was you. You're the reason my parents broke up. And it wasn't just an affair, she really loved you. It wasn't just this cheap thing where she didn’t tell you she was married. It wasn't all a lie. She left her husband for you. But you stayed with your wife, because it was the right thing to do. Maybe safe, but she was the right person for you to be with. Let's face it, my mother? Nothing wrong with being safe, being with the good guy because he's good and we are talking about forever here. You've never regretted your decision. You've never looked back... right?"

MEREDITH: "It’s a long story, which essentially ends with me inviting you to a prom."
FINN: "An actual prom? Corsages and tuxedos?"
MEREDITH: "Yeah, it's stupid, I know."
FINN: "No, I'm in. I loved prom. I mean... I don't wanna brag or anything, but I was crowned king.
MEREDITH: "Really? You were that kid in high school?"
FINN: [smiles] "What's wrong with being that kid?"
MEREDITH: "Nothing, it's very cute actually."

CRISTINA: "I didn't like teenage girls when I was a teenage girl."
MEREDITH: "I wore a lot of black."
CRISTINA: "Ooh."
MEREDITH: "Had the whole angry pink hair thing going on. Wouldn't have been caught dead at a prom."
CRISTINA: "My mother made me go. My date barfed on my dress and then tried to feel me up."

IZZIE: [to Richard] "I cut the LVAT wire."
MEREDITH: "Actually, I cut the LVAT wire."
GEORGE: "No, I did. I'm the one who cut the wire." [pauses, elbows Christina]
CRISTINA: "Fine, I cut the LVAT wire."
ALEX: "I didn't do anything, I'm totally innocent."

MEREDITH: "Thank you... for calling me about Izzie."
GEORGE: "I didn't do you any favors."
MEREDITH: "But it meant something. That you called. It meant something to me."
GEORGE: "It didn't mean anything."
MEREDITH: "Right, okay. Sorry-"
GEORGE: "Stop saying you're sorry! [long pause] You wanna know something? I knew. I knew you didn't feel that way about me, even during... when we were in bed I knew. I knew and I still let it happen, because, um... well, I figured one night with you was better than never. So, will you just stop saying that you're sorry? 'Cause you didn't know any better, but I did. And I still let it happen. I'm sorry. [long pause] I'm sorry, Meredith."

IZZIE: "He said marry me, right? He did? That really happened?"
GEORGE: "Really happened."
MEREDITH: "It really did."

GEORGE: "Bailey's treating us like children. We're not children! We shouldn't have to sit out here like we're in time-out or something."
MEREDITH: "What we did is way in need of a time-out."
CRISTINA: "You realize we could get kicked out of the program for this?"
IZZIE: "Not we. I did this. I did this. You're probably right, maybe I should run. But I'd rather be running towards someone than running away."

MIRANDA: [to Meredith, George, Cristina] "Where was rational thought? Where was cognitive thinking? We're supposed to do no harm! The morals, the ethical... where was sanity when you three decided to help that girl?"
MEREDITH: "We-"
MIRANDA: "No, no, no. No speaking. Nobody speaks! I do not want to have to testify against you in a court of law."

MEREDITH: "Alex, do this, for Izzie."
ALEX: "I'm not guaranteeing anything."

CRISTINA: "I'm not involved."
IZZIE: "What if this was Burke? What if you were me?"
CRISTINA: "This is bad. This is bad and serious and against a lot of rules. It's not fun for me."
IZZIE: "What if you were me?"
CRISTINA: "Well, I wouldn't have fallen in love with a patient."
IZZIE: "You fell in love with an attending."
CRISTINA: "Well so did Mer, so what's the point?"
MEREDITH: "The point is we can't help who we fall in love with."

CRISTINA: "He's... he's been shot."
IZZIE: [pause] "Burke's not coming."
MEREDITH: "Are you okay?"
CRISTINA: "I'm fine."
IZZIE: "Burke's not coming."
GEORGE: "Why didn't I take the internship in San Diego? None of this would be happening if I was in San Diego."
IZZIE: "Burke's not coming."
CRISTINA: "No, Izzie, Burke is not coming. I know you're having problems here, what with your murder charges and your unbelievebly stupid idea about stealing a heart, but Burke's kinda busy right now."

ADDISON: "I just have to ask... are you sleeping with my husband?"
MEREDITH: "Not since before I found out he was married."

CRISTINA: [watching Preston & Derek throw darts] "He's picturing my face. He is totally picturing that dart puncturing my skull. Wooo, look at that."
IZZIE: [to Meredith] "Derek... Derek is picturing you."
MEREDITH: "He called me a whore. He lost the right to picture me."
CRISTINA: "So I fall asleep during sex. So what? Ass!"
MEREDITH: "Ass!"

MIRANDA: "How are you feeling this morning, Denny?"
DENNY: "Great. I'd be even greater if you'd get me off this machine."
MIRANDA: "Ha. Denny, you know I would. But then your heart would stop beating and Dr. Burke would yell at me and that'd make for a very bad day for both of us."
MEREDITH: "Is he a candidate for the portable LVAD?"
DENNY: "Now see, that's what I'm talking about. Half the size, twice the fun."
MIRANDA: "I see you've been doing your research."

MEREDITH: "Poor Marshall. I mean, one minute you're a surgeon and the next, you destroyed an entire family."
IZZIE: "Last month I fell asleep in a parking lot, on a bench. I literally couldn't even make it to the car."
MEREDITH: "I fell asleep in a restaurant, at a table while I was on a date."
CRISTINA: "I fell asleep during sex."
GEORGE: [enters room, looks at Izzie] "Calli is looking for you... you could have told her you were busy-"
IZZIE: "Oh, please don't talk to me about standards. The girl couldn't even wash her hands!" [laughs]
CRISTINA: [to Meredith] "Don't worry about Bambi. If Burke can forgive me for falling asleep during sex, Bambi can forgive you for crying."
MEREDITH: "But Burke hasn't forgiven you."

MEREDITH: [after Calli leaves the bathroom] "Oh my god, did that just happen?"
IZZIE: [laughs] "I'm having a seizure. I am clearly having a seizure. I am seizing."
MEREDITH: "Oh my God!"
IZZIE: "She didn't wash her hands."

IZZIE: "So what's the sex like?"
MEREDITH: "I wouldn't know."
IZZIE: "Four dates and two sleepovers and no sex?"
MEREDITH: "Not even a kiss goodnight."
IZZIE: "Aww, I'm so proud. I am like a proud mama."
MEREDITH: "Shut up."

MEREDITH: "Hey..."
DEREK: "How's my dog?"
MEREDITH: "Much better. Finn is running tests-"
DEREK: "Good. Good."
MEREDITH: "Our dog."
DEREK: "What?"
MEREDITH: "Our dog. You said my dog. He's our dog."
DEREK: "Yeah, whatever."
MEREDITH: "Are you mad at me or something?"
DEREK: [walks away] "Now's not the time."

DEREK: "How the hell did you let a patient get that far from your watch?"
MEREDITH: "I turned my back for a second."
DEREK: "He was in the damn gallery!"
MEREDITH: "He's a surgical intern at Mercy West..."
DEREK: "I don't care if he's the Surgeon General. In this hospital he's patient with a head injury who needs a CT. In this hospital he's a scared guy who doesn't need to see the mass of internal injuries of the woman he ran into with his car! This is your fault! You had him and you lost him! You've got to take responsibility for your actions, for once in your life!" [walks away]
MEREDITH: "Derek!"

GEORGE: "So... I'll see you at home then?"
MEREDITH: [pauses, smiles] "Yeah."
GEORGE: "Okay."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."

FINN: "My mother's dead. She got cancer when I was 10 and suffered for a really long time and then she died. My father never recovered. It's kind of like he died with her, except that he's above ground and permanently placed in front of a TV with a bottle of scotch in his lap. The last woman I slept with was my wife, but she died too. It was a car crash so it was quick. She didn't suffer, which I appreciated. Don't worry, I'm thinking that my luck is beginning to change, because I met you. You like dogs, and you enjoy pony births, and have the ability to save lives. I never said I wasn't scary and damaged too."

FINN: "You're driving me crazy with the hovering.
MEREDITH: [sighs] "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: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

MEREDITH: "I never should have told you about George."
DEREK: "No, its fine. I'm glad I know about him, and the vet. You really get around."
MEREDITH: "What did you just say to me?"
DEREK: "It's unforgivable."
MEREDITH: "I don't remember ever asking you to forgive me."
DEREK: "So, was the knitting a phase? Who's next? Alex? I hear he likes to sleep around too. You two have that in common."

IZZIE: "What'd you say to him?"
MEREDITH: "Nothing, I fled the scene."
IZZIE: "You didn't tell him about George, or Derek?"
MEREDITH: "Nope."
IZZIE: "Hmm... you like him."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "I could like him."

MEREDITH: "I don't cook."
FINN: "Nobody asked you to cook."
MEREDITH: "I know. I'm just saying... you know, I don't cook. So you don't have to cook, I don't expect you to cook for me."
FINN: "Okay, look. You, sit there. I want you to drink this and try really hard to act like you aren't scary and damaged."
MEREDITH: "I'm not scary and damaged."
FINN: "Yeah, you are."
MEREDITH: "No, I'm not scary or damaged."
FINN: "Mmm hmm. Alright. Why don't you tell me about your family?"
MEREDITH: "Okay, me not wanting to talk about my family does not make me scary to damaged."
FINN: "Okay, tell me about the last guy you slept with."

FINN: "Here's the deal. You have two options. You could, come up to my place, take off all your clothes, shower off the goo, borrow one of my shirts and I'll cook you dinner. That’s door number one. Door number two… you go home. I think you ought to take door number one, because it involves you naked in my apartment. But, you know, that's just me."
MEREDITH: "I should point out that there's absolutely nothing you could say that would make me go upstairs with you. I'm kind of offended that you think that I would go upstairs with you. And you should know, that I... I'm celibate, so-"
FINN: "Shut up."
MEREDITH: "I absolutely can not have... sex, with you."
FINN: "If you choose door number one, I absolutely will not have sex with you."
MEREDITH: "You wont?"
FINN: "I promise I won't. I won't even try to kiss you."
MEREDITH: [smiles] "Why not?"
FINN: "Meredith."
MEREDITH: "What?"
FINN: "Choose door number one."

MEREDITH: [to Derek] "It's just... I'm exhausted. My mother is exhausting. What happened to Cristina is exhausting. And you? Hating you is the most exhausting of all. And I don't want to do it anymore."

MEREDITH [jogging with Cristina] "This is supposed to make us feel better."
CRISTINA: "Do you feel better?"
MEREDITH: "A little."
CRISTINA: "Slutty mistress."
MEREDITH: "Pregnant whore."
CRISTINA: "Sleeping with our bosses was a great idea!"

CRISTINA: "Do you want to cry?"
MEREDITH: "Yeah."
CRISTINA: "Do you want to cry now?"
MEREDITH: "No!"

MEREDITH: "What kind of person wishes her mother has cancer?"

DEREK: "It's okay."
MEREDITH: "It's not okay. You have a wife who's not easy to hate. Who's annoyingly kind and painfully smart, and currently saving my friend's life."

MEREDITH: [to Derek] "Stop talking to me like you're my boyfriend. Stop talking to me... at all!" [Storms out]
ALEX: "Dude, that was rough."

FINN: "This shouldn’t take too long. We can grab some dinner right after."
MEREDITH: "After?"
FINN: "After she gives birth."
MEREDITH: "You're birthing a horse?"
FINN: "Yeah."
MEREDITH: "That's your errand? You're birthing a horse?"
FINN: "Yeah. I guess I could have mentioned it before but, you know, I didn't want to scare you back to your knitting. You can wait back here."
MEREDITH: "Back here?"
FINN: "If you want. I mean it gets a little messy."
MEREDITH: "No, I want to birth a horse!"

MIRANDA: "What's going on between Stevens and Denny? is it a crush, some innocent flirtation? Or is Stevens actually crossing the line?"
MEREDITH: "Well, I know she likes him, but I can't imagine Izzie would do that."
MIRANDA: "I didn't think you and Yang would be stupid enough to fall for your attendings, but I was wrong about that, wasn't I."
MEREDITH: "Yeah, well, it's okay. I'm knitting these days and I'm actually thinking about accepting a date, with a vet!"
MIRANDA: "Grey, do you really think I care?
MEREDITH: "No."
MIRANDA: "Good. Maybe you aren't as stupid as I thought."

MEREDITH: "Hey."
DEREK: "Well, hey."
MEREDITH: [tries not to laugh] "So, you picked up Doc?"
DEREK: "Yeah, he's home."
MEREDITH: "He seems to be doing better."
DEREK: "Yeah, he's... he's doing good."
MEREDITH: [laughs] "I'm not laughing at you."
DEREK: [laughs] "No."
MEREDITH: "It's just, you know... bad sex isn't the kind of thing that wives want announced to dirty-ex-mistresses."
DEREK: "You're not the dirty ex-mistress. You're a friend. She's your friend. I'm your friend. We're all friends."
MEREDITH: "But you didn't tell her."
DEREK: "No." [smiles] "So how's your day going?"

MEREDITH: "It's weird, right? I mean, he's Derek vet. He's Doc's vet. He's my vet. He's McVet. It's weird to date him, right?"
CRISTINA: "Wait, did you say vet?"
MEREDITH: [nods] "Mmm-hmm."
CRISTINA: "Like, animals? You can't date a vet, he's not even a real doctor."

MEREDITH: "Obviously I can't go out with him, right?"
ALEX: "Do I look like a chick to you? Do I look like I care about yeast cream or tingling feelings? He's not on drugs or in jail or keeping body parts in his basement. If you wanna do 'em, do 'em."
MEREDITH: "Not do him. Date him. I'm not doing anybody. I'm knitting."

FINN: "So you and Derek... are you together?"
MEREDITH: "Uhhh... Derek and I are, um, just friends. He's married and I am knitting a sweater. And, um, well, I guess I'm rambling which I tend to do a lot lately and I just wish that someone would just tell me to shut... My point is uh ... we're, um... he's married and I'm knitting a sweater."
FINN: "I see. So, you're single?"
MEREDITH: "Single?"
FINN: "I ask because I was wondering if you would like to go out with me."
MEREDITH: "Out, with you?"
FINN: "On a date. Tonight."
MEREDITH: "A date? Tonight?"
FINN: "And you're repeating everything I say so you can buy yourself some time and figure out a way to let me down easy. It's okay, you know, I get it."
MEREDITH: "No. I... I... um... you know you're very... it's just that if I were, you would... Not dating!"

MEREDITH: [to George] "What are you doing with Olivia? 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."

MEREDITH: [to Derek] "I am a sink with an open drain, and anything you say runs straight out." [storms off]
GEORGE: "She probably could have used a better metaphor."
IZZIE: "Give her a break, she's got a hangover."

MEREDITH: "It's not us. It's them. Them and their stupid boy penises. They didn't tell me they have a wife. They gave absolutely no warning that they were going to break up with you."
CRISTINA: "It's not that Burke broke up with me. It's how he broke up with me. Like it was business. Like it was a business trans- Like he was the boss of me!"
MEREDITH: "He is the boss of you."
CRISTINA: "What's worse is that I care."

DEREK: "Meredith, I understand..."
MEREDITH: "Do you? Somehow I doubt it. Because if you did, you would shut up, turn around and go back inside, because you would realize that I am this close to getting in my car and running you over in the parking lot!"

MEREDITH: "Lip gloss. I wore my new lip gloss because my ex-boyfriend's wife looks like Isabella freaking Rossellini and I'm like, me. I'm trying to outdo her when she's the victim here. How crazy is that?"
GEORGE: "It's not that crazy, you know... smart. Lip gloss prevents chapped lips. You... was that ex-boyfriend?"
MEREDITH: "I am an evil mistress."
GEORGE: "But still... you look nice."

MEREDITH: "You're sleeping with someone?"
GEORGE: "What? You are? Who?"
CRISTINA: "What? Why is that such a shock? Even George managed to get some action."
GEORGE: "Um, Correction! George got some syph."

MEREDITH: "Lets play the game of whose life sucks the most. I'll win. I always win."
CRISTINA: "You don't want to play with me."
Meredith: "Oh yes, I do. I'll even go first. Derek is married, as in pig-headed adulterous liar married." [George spits out his beer]
CRISTINA: "George, you have beer... coming out of your nostrils..."
MEREDITH: "Alright, your turn."
CRISTINA: "I'm pregnant. There. I win." [Joe the Bartender collapses] "Okay, maybe Joe wins."

CRISTINA: "What've you got?"
MEREDITH: "Bomb in a body cavity."
CRISTINA: [shakes head] "Man! All I have is Bailey's husband's open brain."

MEREDITH: "How do you know I did something and not George?"
ALEX: "Because. Bambi looks upset and you look guilty."

MEREDITH: "We know he cheated on you. That's why we let you turn the house into Santa's Freaking Village. We're not big on holidays. We're trying to be supportive, because you're having a hard time. But right now, Alex is having a harder time."
IZZIE: "Why should anybody care what kind of time Alex is having!?"
MEREDITH: "Because he's Dirty Uncle Sal!"
IZZIE: [looks confused]
MEREDITH: "Dirty Uncle Sal. The one who embarrasses everyone at holidays and family reunions and who can't be left alone with the teenage girls, but you have to invite him anyway. Look... I have a mother who doesn't recognize me and as far as family goes, you guys are it. So I know you're pissed at Alex, but maybe... maybe you could try and help him anyway. Like, in the spirit of this holiday you keep shoving down everybody's throats."

GEORGE: [looking at Dr. Bailey] "Look at her! She's almost as wide as she is tall."
MEREDITH: "Are her ankles swollen?"
IZZIE: "It's gonna be weird when she goes on leave."
CRISTINA: "Leave? She's going on leave?"
MEREDITH: "That's usually what happens when people push babies out of their vaginas."
GEORGE: "You think we'll get a new resident?"
ALEX: "Nah. They'll probably just leave us all unattended, see how much damage we can do."
IZZIE: "Yeah, well, you would know."

GEORGE: "It looks like Santa threw up in here."
MEREDITH: "Just go with it, we're being supportive here."
IZZIE: "Did I go overboard? I know sometimes I can go too overboard."
MEREDITH & GEORGE: [together] "It's great."
IZZIE: "Oh, good. Yay! I love Christmas!"
MEREDITH & GEORGE: [together] "We know."

MEREDITH: "Free time sucks."
GEORGE: "When would have been a good time to hear about your boyfriend's wife?"
MEREDITH: "Are you mad at me or something?"

Meredith: Hi.
DEREK: [walks into elevator] "Hi. Leaving?"
MEREDITH: "80-hour limit. You?"
DEREK: "Surgery was postponed." [smiles]
MEREDITH: [pauses] "I have a dog."
DEREK: "You have a dog."
MEREDITH: "My point is, I have a dog."
DEREK: [smiles] "You have a dog. Oh, and you know what? I love dogs."
MEREDITH: "I've moved on, so don't give me that look."
DEREK: "What look?"
MEREDITH: "That look. Our look. I'm over you."
DEREK: "I'm over you, too."
MEREDITH: "You are?"
DEREK: "No."
MEREDITH: "Oh. Well, I am. Over you."
DEREK: "I'm over you too."
MEREDITH: "You just said... shut up." [smiles]

MEREDITH: [petting the dog] "Such a good dog! Who's Mommy's good boy?" [looks at Izzie and George] "C'mon, what are you doing? We're gonna be late."
GEORGE: "Um, we need to talk about the dog."
IZZIE: "That's not a dog, this is a hyena that escaped from the zoo and dressed up in a dog's clothing."
GEORGE: "Whatever. I don't chew up his clothes. I don't urinate on his bed. I don't try to mount him from behind."
IZZIE: "Mount you from behind?"
GEORGE: "He tried to."

THATCHER: "Oh, hey, Dr. O'Malley."
GEORGE: [surprised] "Hi."
THATCHER: "I was looking for you. Before, when I was asking about Meredith... You know her. You're her friend?"
GEORGE: "I used to be her roommate."
THATCHER: "Oh, so, you know her really well."
GEORGE: "Pretty well, yeah."
THATCHER: "Um, she... she came to see me a couple weeks ago..."
GEORGE: [pauses] "A couple weeks ago?"
THATCHER: "Yeah. I... I didn’t know what to say to her. She looks... so much like her mother. Ellis was cold. I mean, I was a coward, I was. I left. But her mother would never let me know her and now I don’t know how to know her."
GEORGE: [pauses] "Well, Meredith is anything but cold. She smiles... not that often, but when she does, you know because she's really going through a lot, but it's… you just feel warm. She's kind. I mean, she can be a little selfish at times, and she's flawed. But she's kind. She cares about people and, um... she cares about her patients. She's going to be a brilliant surgeon. You know, around here, she's known as the one to beat. So, I... I guess she has that in common with her mom, but the rest of her, I think, the rest of that, she gets from you."
THATCHER: "Hmm... do you... know where she is?"
GEORGE: "I think she left already. But I could tell her you were here, if you want me to."
THATCHER: "Yeah. Okay. Thank you."
GEORGE: "You're welcome."
THATCHER: "Okay."
GEORGE: "Okay. Bye."
THATCHER: "Bye."
MEREDITH: [whispering, hiding] "Thank you, George."

MOLLY: "You think I'm too young to be married."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "No..."
MOLLY: "It's okay. Everybody says I'm too young. If I saw me, I'd think I was too young."
MEREDITH: "Umm, how old are you?"
MOLLY: "22. Eric's 23 and he's in the Army and he was getting shipped out. And... I just love him so much. You know? So anyway, I proposed."

MEREDITH: "I swear I just saw my father..."
CRISTINA: "Did you see your sister, too?"

DEREK: "Come on, have a drink."
MEREDITH: "I can't have a drink, I'm celibate."
JOE: "You mean sober? She means sober."
MEREDITH: "No, I mean celibate. I'm practicing celibacy. Drinking does not go well with celibacy because it makes everything and everyone seem kind of porn-y. Then my head gets all cloudy and the next thing you know I'm naked. My point is that I'm celibate, and knitting is good for surgical dexterity, so I'm making a sweater."
DEREK: "You? Celibate? I don't buy it."
MEREDITH: "No more men."
ADDISON: "No more men? Really? You? I'm just asking, because we're friends."
Meredith: Every guy I meet turns out to be married.
DEREK: "Oh... ouch."
MEREDITH: "Or Mark."
ADDISON: [walks away] "Okay, I'm going to sit over there now."
MEREDITH: "Sorry. Or, remember the horrible thing I did? Remember George?"
DEREK: "You're making a sweater."
MEREDITH: "I'm making a sweater."

PRESTON: "You forged my signature?"
MEREDITH: "That’s really bad, right?"
PRESTON: "Yeah, that’s really bad." [pauses] The next time you decide to forge my signature, let me know. Save me a trip."
MEREDITH: "That’s it? You're not gonna yell and say 'Dammit, Grey' and then storm off?"
PRESTON: "I will if you want me to."
MEREDITH: "That's okay."

MEREDITH: [narrating] "Everybody's a liar."
PRESTON: "Dr. Grey, is that a dog?"
MEREDITH: [holding dog by the leash] "No."
MIRANDA: "Tell me that is not a dog."
ALEX: "It's not a dog."

CRISTINA: "Know what? Fine. If you want me to tell Burke I didn't move in, I'll tell him."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "No, don’t."
CRISTINA: "What?"
MEREDITH: "Don’t tell him. At least not right now, or tonight. I just mean... wait. It can wait. I lied about Derek. We're not just friends. I mean, I'm not. He's still McDreamy."

MEREDITH: "Hey, why aren't you busy prepping for rounds and stealing all the good cases?"
CRISTINA: "Why aren't you busy prepping for rounds and stealing all the good cases?"
MEREDITH: "No reason."
CRISTINA: "No reason." [pause] "Burke thinks I moved in with him."
MEREDITH: "McDreamy and I have a case. Wait. He thinks you moved in with him?"
CRISTINA: "You're calling him McDreamy again?"
MEREDITH: "So?"
CRISTINA: "What are you doing?"
MEREDITH: "What are YOU doing?"

PRESTON: "His injuries are far less severe. We have a much greater chance of saving him."
DEREK: "Well I could argue that because her injuries are more severe, he should be the one that gets moved."
MEREDITH: "So, basically, whoever you move doesn't stand a chance. How do you choose? How do you decide who gets to live?"

MEREDITH: "You're staying with her, aren't you?"
DEREK: [pauses] "She's my wife."

MEREDITH: "How weird is this job?"
GEORGE: "Weird."

MEREDITH: [standing over Bonnie] "What about her? We can't just leave her! We can't just abandon her!"

GEORGE: "Was that a nod?"
MEREDITH: "Yes."
GEORGE: "Do we know what it meant?"
MEREDITH: "No."
GEORGE: "Well... for what it's worth, I... I think he's crazy if he doesn't pick you."

IZZIE: "She's been there for hours! It's getting kinda hard to watch!"
CRISTINA: "No... it was hard to watch half an hour ago, now it's just pathetic."
MEREDITH: "Who's pathetic?"
CRISTINA: "What?"
MEREDITH: "You, who pretend to be my friends! Calling me pathetic. Behind my back, in front of my face. Why don't you just dump the pig’s blood on me now and get it over with?"

MEREDITH: "I actually said 'pick me.' Pick me!?"
JOE: "I think it's romantic."
MEREDITH: "It's not romantic, Joe. It's horrifying. Horror-movie horrifying. Carrie at the prom with the pig's blood horrifying!"
JOE: "Well I think it's sweet."
MEREDITH: "I. said. PICK ME!"

DEREK: "You should come visit! The dog, I mean."
MEREDITH: [smiles] "Uh huh. Bye!"

MEREDITH: [to Richard] "She lights up when you're around. She's alive. Keep visiting. I can't... I don't... I don't want my mother to die alone."

MEREDITH: "Stop it."
DYLAN: "What?"
MEREDITH: "Stop looking at me like I'm a patient."
DYLAN: "I'm sorry?"
MEREDITH: "The two of you are looking at me the way we look at patients. Like I’m gonna freak out at any minute. Well, I'm not going to freak out, so whatever it is, just tell me straight up."
PRESTON: [pauses] "The main oxygen line runs directly under this floor."
MEREDITH: "Okay. Not okay." [silence] "Well, I need one of you to tell me what this means exactly. Because I think I know what it means, but I tend to be glass half-empty these days, so I don’t trust what I think it means. Because what I think it means is that if the bomb were to explode over the oxygen line, the whole hospital could blow up. That’s just crazy right?"

MEREDITH: "Tell me something."
CRISTINA: "What?"
MEREDITH: "Cristina. I have my hand on a bomb, I’m freaking out, and most importantly, I really have to pee. Just please tell me anything."
CRISTINA: "He told me he loved me. Last night. He thought I was sleeping, but I heard him say it."
MEREDITH: "Burke loves you."
CRISTINA: [to Dylan] "Mind your own business."
MEREDITH: "He loves you!"
CRISTINA: "Yeah. everybody has problems."
MEREDITH: "Well are you gonna say it back?"
CRISTINA: "Of course not! He didn’t say it to me, he said it to sleeping me! Reciprocity is not required. Besides, he might blow up."
MEREDITH: "Excellent point."

DYLAN: "You’re doing great."
MEREDITH: "Let’s go over again."
DYLAN: "Okay. The device is shaped like a rocket. It's eight inches long. We’re going to have everything ready. Dr. Burke's team is going to be in place. My team is going to be in place. Then when I ask you to take the hand that you have in Mr. Carlson, wrap it around the device -"
MEREDITH: "And I pull it out."
DYLAN: "Level. Pull it out while keeping it level."
MEREDITH: "You know I don’t like you very much."
DYLAN: "I don't like you either."

MEREDITH: [with her hand on the bomb, in the patient] "Is this the strangest thing that’s ever happened in your O.R.?"
PRESTON: "I would have to say it is."
MEREDITH: "Good, because I'm very competitive."
PRESTON: [smiles] "The very best surgeons always are."

CRISTINA: [to George in dream sequence] "You're smarter than me and have great hair."
MEREDITH: [to George in dream sequence] "I'm in love with you, George. I always have been, and I always will be."
IZZIE: [back to reality] "George, if you keeping clogging up the toilet, you're gonna have to learn how to use a plunger or we're going to make you crap in the yard."

MEREDITH: [after placing her hand on the bomb inside the patient] "What did I do... what did I do... what did I do... what did I do?"

CRISTINA: "Get out of bed, we're gonna be late."
MEREDITH: "I have a feeling."
CRISTINA: "You have a feeling?"
MEREDITH: "Yes."
CRISTINA: "What kind of feeling?"
MEREDITH: "Like I might die."
CRISTINA: "Today? Tomorrow? In 50 years? We're all going to die eventually. Now we're late! Let's go!"
MEREDITH: "Oh Cristina, c'mon!"
CRISTINA: "What? I'm being supportive."
MEREDITH: "Really?"
CRISTINA: "Yeah, this is me being totally supportive. Go on."
MEREDITH: "Okay. The man I love has a wife and then he chooses her over me. Then the wife takes my dog. Well, she didn't actually take my dog. I gave it to her. But I didn't mean to give it to her, I meant to give it to him, and that doesn't change the fact that she's got Derek. And my McDog. She's got my McLife! What have I got? I can't even remember the last time we kissed. Because you never think the last time is the last time. You think you have forever, but you don't. Plus my conditioner decided to stop working and I think I have brittle bones. I need something to happen. I just need a sign. I need a reason to go on. I need some hope, and in the absence of hope, I need to stay in bed and feel like I might die today."
CRISTINA: [pauses, then drags Meredith out of bed] "Whatever. Everybody has problems. Get your ass out of bed and get to work. NOW! Move, move, move!"

PRESTON: [to Meredith] "Dr. Grey, I want you to walk out of this room. Walk. Do not run. Go and tell the charge nurse that we have a Code Black."
MEREDITH: "I'm sorry, a Code Black?"
PRESTON: "Code. Black. Tell him that I am sure, and then tell him to call the bomb squad."

MARK: "You and I are the dirty mistresses."
MEREDITH: "I suppose we are. Why do you think that is?"
MARK: "My $400-dollar-an-hour shrink says it’s because behind this rugged and confident exterior, I'm self-loathing and self-destructive to an almost pathological degree."
MEREDITH: "We have a lot in common."
MARK: "It's funny. Derek walks in on me naked with his wife, and just turns around and walks away. But then he sees me so much as talking to you, and I'm on the ground bleeding. Interesting, don't you think?"

GEORGE: "Why is he suturing his own face?"
CRISTINA: "To turn me on..."
ALEX: "Because he's Mark Sloan. The guy is like the go-to plastic surgeon on the east coast."
GEORGE: "That’s the guy Addison was sleeping with."
IZZIE: "Can you really blame her?"
CRISTINA: "No, not really."
GEORGE: "Yes, you can."
MEREDITH: "Well McSexy wants an X-ray to check for fractures and I think it’s a bad idea if I go with him."
GEORGE: "Why?"
ALEX: "I'm on it."
GEORGE: "Why is that a bad idea?"
CRISTINA: "McSexy?"
MEREDITH: "That's not right."
IZZIE: "McYummy?"
CRISTINA: "Mmm... no."
MEREDITH: "McSteamy."
CRISTINA: "There it is!"
IZZIE: "Yup."
GEORGE: "Allow me to choke back some McVomit."

PATIENT: "I was struck by lightning."
MEREDITH: "You mean you fell out of a tree that was hit by lightning."
PATIENT: "Same difference."
MIRANDA: "Actually, medically, it's not the same difference. And it would be helpful if, from now on, you told us the whole truth!"

MEREDITH: "George is still ignoring me."
CRISTINA: "Just ignore him back."
MEREDITH: "Derek says I should apologize until he listens."
CRISTINA: "Derek says?"
MEREDITH: "It's good advice. He's my friend. That’s good friend advice."

ALEX: "O'Malley, you are a pathetic excuse for a man."
GEORGE: "Excuse me?"
ALEX: "You heard me. You're like a whiny little girl.
MEREDITH: "Alex!"
ALEX: [to Meredith] "You know why he's not speaking to you, because he's not over you."
ALEX: [to George] So you got laid and it went badly. A man would move on. But you? You mope around like a dog that likes to get kicked. You make me sick. If it wouldn’t get me thrown out of the program, I'd smash your pathetic little face right into that locker."

DEREK: "Seattle has ferryboats?"
MEREDITH: "Yes."
DEREK: "I didn’t know that. I've been living here six weeks, and had no idea there were ferryboats."
MEREDITH: "Seattle is surrounded by water on three sides."
DEREK: "Hence the ferryboats. Now I have to like it here. I wasn’t planning on liking it here, since I'm from New York, and am genetically engineered to dislike everywhere except Manhattan. But I do have a thing for ferryboats."
MEREDITH: "I'm not going out with you."
DEREK: "Did I ask if you'll go with me? Do you want to go out with me?"
MEREDITH: "I'm not dating you and I'm definitely not sleeping with you again. You're my boss."
DEREK: "No, I'm your boss' boss."
MEREDITH: "You're my teacher and my teacher's teacher. And my teacher!"
DEREK: "I'm your sister. I'm your daughter."
MEREDITH: "You're sexually harassing me."
DEREK: "I'm just riding in an elevator."
MEREDITH: "Look, I'm drawing a line. The line is drawn. Thereis now a big line."
DEREK: "So this line... is it imaginary or do I need to get you a marker?"

CRISTINA: "You know, [Burke] is acting like I committed a crime. Like my apartment is full of stolen goods. He’s acting like I kept my apartment to hide stolen goods, so I could do illegal organ transplants for money."
MEREDITH: "Are you sure he’s not just acting like you lied to him about moving in?"
CRISTINA: "What the hell's wrong with you?"
MEREDITH: "My mother's a filthy whore."

MARK: [walks into the bar] "Is this seat taken?"
MEREDITH: [pauses] "I guess not."
MARK: [sits] "You look sad."
MEREDITH: "I just saw my father for the first time in 20 years."
MARK: "How’d that go?
MEREDITH: "It could have gone better. What’re you still doing here?"
MARK: "I'm hoping Addison shows up."
MEREDITH: "You're still in love with her?"
MARK: "You're still in love with Derek."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "She won't show, you know."
MARK: "No?"
MEREDITH: "He’s not the kind of guy you leave if you can help it."
MARK: "But what if you're wrong? Just this once, what if life comes down on the side of the dirty mistresses?"

MEREDITH: [corners George in elevator] "You’re trapped. You you don’t have to talk. I’ll do the talking, George. I am truly, very deeply sorry. I’m not going to make excuses, I’m just sorry. Look... I know you’re going to get off this elevator and walk away and not look back. But George, 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."

MEREDITH: "It takes two to make a stupid sexual decision, you know."

DEREK: "Meredith?"
MEREDITH: "What!? What is it?"
DEREK: "Oh... I usually just say 'Meredith' and then you yell at me. I haven’t thought about it past that point. I actually didn’t have anything planned."

CRISTINA: "Your problem is estrogen."
MEREDITH: "No, my problem is tequila."

MEREDITH: "I have this feeling."
DEREK: "I get that feeling also. If you wait long enough it will pass."
MEREDITH: "Do you promise?"
DEREK: "I promise."

MEREDITH: "Hey."
DEREK: "Hey. You almost died today."
MEREDITH: "Yeah, I almost died today."
[pause]
MEREDITH: "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."
[pause]
DEREK: "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 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. Kind of like a habit. You know, like we'd do it everyday for the rest of our lives. Then you went back reading the newspaper and I went to work. That was the last time we kissed."

MEREDITH: "You really should take something."
CRISTINA: "Drugs are for babies."
IZZIE: "I hate Alex."
CRISITNA: "And the non sequitur award goes to..."
IZZIE: "I’m sorry, but I just hate Alex."
MEREDITH: "I broke up with Derek."
CRISTINA: "Burke wants to have a relationship."
IZZIE: "Boys are stupid."

MEREDITH: "If I tell you what I did, you have to react like you're my friend, not not my friend."
DEREK: "I think I can handle that."

MEREDITH: I... I slept with George. I slept with him and it was a horrible mistake. Now everything has changed and I don’t know how to repair it. I don’t even know where to start, but I just know that I have to and..."
DEREK: [pauses] You tell him that. You find George and you apologize.
MEREDITH: "That’s what everyone’s saying but he wont listen."
DEREK: "You tell him you’re sorry. Just tell him again and again and again until he listens."
MEREDITH: "How do I make him?
DEREK: "Do what I do... use the elevator."

IZZIE: [to Meredith, about Addison] "Well, if it makes you feel any better, I take issue with the salmon scrubs. I mean what self-respecting surgeon wears salmon-colored scrubs?"
MEREDITH: [smiles] "This is what I'm saying."

MEREDITH: "So that's it? Was that what I was to you? The girl you screwed to get over being screwed?"
DEREK: "You were like coming up for fresh air. It's like I was drowning and you saved me. That's all I know."
MEREDITH: [pauses] "That's not good enough."

MEREDITH: [talking about her new roommates] "They're just... everywhere, all the time. Izzie's all perky and George does the thing where he's helpful and considerate. They share food, they say things, they move things, and they breathe. They're, like, happy."
CRISTINA: "Kick 'em out."
MEREDITH: "I can't kick them out, they just moved in. I asked them to move in."
CRISTINA: "Okay, so what, you're just going to repress everything in some deep, dark, twisted place until one day you snap and you kill them?"
MEREDITH: "Yep."
CRISTINA: "This is why we are friends."

MEREDITH: "I guess we're adults. The question is, when did that happen, and how do we make it stop?"

MEREDITH: [to Derek] "Stop looking at me like that, like you've seen me naked."
DEREK: [smiles]

MEREDITH: "I don't believe it. After all this time, and all your warnings about me sleeping with my boss, you're doing the same exact thing."
CRISTINA: "Oh, it's not the same thing."
MEREDITH: "It's the exact same!"
CRISTINA: "No, it's not. Not at all. You and McDreamy are in a relationship."
MEREDITH: "And you and Burke are in-"
CRISTINA: "Switzerland. You should go there! It's very neutral and they make very nice watches."

DEREK: "Meredith, I am so sorry. Addison. What are you doing here?"
ADDISON: "Well you'd know if you'd bothered to return any one of my phone calls."
MEREDITH: [confused]
ADDISON: "Hi, I'm Addison Shepherd."
MEREDITH: "Shepherd?"
ADDISON: "And you must be the woman who's been screwing my husband."
MEREDITH: [silence]

GEORGE: "What happened today?"
IZZIE: "Nothing."
MEREDITH: "Nothing."
GEORGE: "Okay then."
IZZIE: "We don’t know everything about each other, George."
MEREDITH: "Yeah."
GEORGE: [pause] "True. Anybody wanna have sex?"

MEREDITH: "I did a terrible thing."
DEREK: "We all do terrible things."
MEREDITH: "No... I... I really think that I have just lost all my friends."
DEREK: "You won't lose me."
MEREDITH: "You aren't my friend."
DEREK: "Sure I am."

MEREDITH: "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."
