We’ve all done things we weren’t proud of. I understand that. I know nobody’s perfect, but how do you live with it? How do you get up every morning knowing you could have done better, that you should have done better? Is being sorry enough? Can an apology actually heal our wounds? Ease our pain? Can it undo the hurt that we’ve caused?

I’m so sorry. That makes me human. That does not make me negligent. And if I can’t feel for my patients without getting sued, then I guess I’m just going to keep getting sued because that’s who I am. I won’t apologize for that.

Meredith: Are you sure? There’s going to be a piñata.
Callie: Shut up.
Meredith: And pin the head on the skeleton.
Callie: Damn it. They’re so cute when they’re blindfolded.
Meredith: Bobbing for apples.
Callie: They’re even cuter when they bob.

Meredith: You make me sound like a soft drink.
Callie: Yeah, I'm reinvesting in myself.
 

I rebounded to the McDreamy's.

I was too busy feeding my family and getting my sister wife's breast pump packed to feed myself this morning.

Cristina: Who's Dr. Boswell?
Callie: She's the woman Arizona slept with last night.

Cartilage is trending because of me.

That ass doesn't quit!

It's not a horse, it's a pegasus. And it wants to hold your hand.

After the car accident, you never left my side. Not once. There is no way I'm leaving yours.

Arizona: Callie, please don't run.
Callie: What?
Arizona: It's all been awful and I've been awful, but I'm starting to feel like myself again.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith

Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
