You're my person.

What if one little thing I said or did could have made it all fall apart?

Meredith The baby you have is the baby you were destined to have. It was meant to be.

You think Teddy will care if I take some of her widow casserole?

Cristina: What about Ortho? Callie would be a great mentor.
Meredith: Bones?

There's nothing else we can do for you. These are the last words a surgeon wants to tell a patient. Getting up doesn't come easy to us, so we do everything in our power not to. For surgeons, lost cause just means try a little harder.

You can't prepare for a sudden impact. You can't brace yourself. It just hits you. Out of nowhere.

Alex: You look like hell, you should go home.
Meredith: Me? You smell bad, you should leave.

Victims of a sudden impact are some of the hardest to treat. It's not just the collision that injures them, it's everything after.

Say you're in the OR. Repairing a vena cava. When suddenly everything goes to hell. So, you cut this, suture that, and soon that crappy situation is a thing of the past. Too bad you can't meet all of life's challenges with a surgical scalpel. I mean, you could try. But I'm pretty sure that would be considered assault.

These are the things we beg for. A root canal, an I.R.S. audit, coffee spilled on our clothes. When the really terrible things happen, we start begging the god we don't believe in to bring back the little horrors, and take away this. It seems quaint now, doesn't it? The flood in the kitchen, the poison oak, the fight that leaves you shaking with rage. Would it've helped if we could see what else was coming? Would we have known that those were the best moments of our lives?

What you did was dirty but what I did was illegal.

Meredith to Alex

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Just because we can live without something, it doesn't mean we have to.

Meredith

Derek: I am calling post-it, Zola, Bailey, the tumors on the wall, ferryboat scrub caps. I thought D.C. was everything. I was wrong. You... you're everything. I love you and I'm not going to stop loving you. I can't live without you. I don't want to live without you, and I'm going to do everything in my power to prove it.
Meredith: I can live without you, but I don't want to. I don't ever want to.
