Meredith Grey Quotes
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.

Meredith: I can live without you, but I don't want to. I don't ever want to.
Meredith: It seems like you came home because you thought you were in trouble.
Derek: I came home because we're on trouble. I came home to work on us. I came home.

Feels weird to sleep alone. I'm not used to it. I don't know why. He used to go away all the time, but this time he's gone, and I know he's gone, and the bed feels lonely. It's like, I don't know how to sleep alone.
Alex: The fact that you were checking your texts while you were doing it is already sad.
Meredith: We have a special ring tone. Hey you want a special ring tone?
Meredith: I'm going to miss you.
