[drinking coffee] "You don't know how much I wish this was bourbon."

ADDISON: "I know what you're going to say Richard, but if you knew the day I've had-"
RICHARD: "Everybody in this hospital has those days, Addison, and no one makes a scene in front of their peers. Get it together. [pauses] Addison?"
ADDISON: "I can't compete. He's not having an affair. He's not trying to hurt me. He's just... the only people who don't know that Derek loves Meredith are Derek and Meredith. How do I compete with that?"

DEREK: "Maybe you should've thought of all this before you gave chief to Burke and invited Satan to Seattle."
RICHARD: "Satan?"
ADDISON: "Good morning Richard, like the hat."
DEREK: "Satan speaks."
ADDISON: "Actually, I prefer to be called ruler of all that is evil. But I will answer to Satan."

"I've been sitting home for a week watching Oprah give away things on T.V. Oprah, Derek!"

RICHARD: "You called my wife?"
DEREK: "You called mine!"

ADDISON: "Am I interrupting?"
RICHARD: "You're never interrupting."
DEREK: "She's always interrupting."

RICHARD: "You and I both know she's the best in the field. Bringing Addison out was a business decision. It's nothing personal."
DEREK: "Oh, well, that's a relief. Not personal. It's personal to me!"

NURSE: "Chief, Adele just called."
RICHARD: "Please tell her I'm in-"
NURSE: "She knows you're not in surgery and she said to tell you, quote, we're going to our niece's school pageant this morning. You've known about it for months, and after what you pulled on Thanksgiving... then she started using a great many words that I don't feel comfortable repeating."
RICHARD: [sighs] "Look, I have seven surgeons on vacation."
NURSE: "There was something in there about divorce."

RICHARD: [looking at the board] "Anxiety attacks, aneurysms, and ulcers."
MIRANDA: "Must be December."

RICHARD: "So don't move here for Derek. Move for you."
ADDISON: "Excuse me?"
RICHARD: "With your practice based here, and the money I'll put into promoting you, you'll be one of the biggest names outside Manhattan."
ADDISON: "You're serious?"
RICHARD: "I'm ready to put my money where my mouth is."

PRESTON: "I don't want preferential treatment."
RICHARD: "And you're not gonna get it. You're not married, you're not hiding. You came to me. You clearly value your relationship. What you two have together, I understand that, Preston, and it does matter."

THATCHER: "I spent years looking at this board. Holding a crying baby, trying to get an idea of when my wife would get out of surgery. 'Appy,' that takes about an hour. Now anything with the word "cardio" in it, I knew not to plan on seeing her that day."
RICHARD: "Thatcher, are you aware of what's going on with Ellis?"
THATCHER: "You have no right. No right... to talk to me about Ellis."
RICHARD: "I'm sorry. I... I was trying to talk to you about Meredith. Thatcher, Ellis has Early Onset Alzheimer's. It's advanced. It's hard on Meredith as you can imagine, and I thought you'd want to know."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

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.
