There comes a point in your life when you’re officially an adult....
I’m not stalking you. I just… I hate apples. Hate them. Think they...– Lexie
Izzie: [To Meredith] [Sighs] I love George.
Meredith: Oh, God...
Izzie: I do, I love him, and I'm so happy because he's kind and smart and um, sweet and sexy. He's perfect, perfect, except for the fact that he kisses like a chicken. You know a chicken pecking the ground for food, justs pecking and pecking and pecking, and when he's pecking at me like that I forget that I love him, I forget that he's kind and sweet and sexy and I just wanna scream, "Stop pecking me!" Did he peck you like a chicken, Mer?
Meredith: [Sees Cristina] Cristina needs me.
Deep down, everyone wants to believe they can be hardcore. But being hardcore...
Derek: Oh, I'm late. Dropped off the Chief's dry cleaning.
Mark: You're doing his laundry?
Derek: We're helping each other out.
Mark: Yeah, what's he doing?
Derek: He has an extensive DVD collection [pauses, raises his eyebrows, and exhales].
Mark: [Pauses] You're dating the Chief. Huh.
It goes away. The feeling. That feeling that you have right now… today… that...
There’s a clarity thing when you cross over the edge. there’s a moment when...
Meredith: I drowned. I was sinking. I died. And you know what I realized? I realized how stupid all of my issues are.
Cristina: I’m waiting for how this applied to me.
Meredith: It doesn’t.
Cristina: Of course not.
Meredith: Well that man fell, and all he wanted was one last chance to tell sally how he felt about her. And I GOT one last chance. I got my chance. And what have I done with it?
Cristina: You know, being aware of your crap and actually overcoming you crap are two very different things.
Meredith: I know.
Derek: What is that?
Meredith: It’s charts.
Meredith: It’s my mom. I had her in the cubby and she was freaking people out. I was just gonna go put her in the car. Do you think that’s disrespectful? To leave her in the car?
Derek: It’s a little….
Meredith: It’s not that strange. I mean, I’m trying to figure out how to put her to rest. I can’t shove her in the back of my closet anymore. I have to deal with her. And this is me trying…to evolve. I’m trying here. So, cubby or car?
Derek: You’re asking me if I think you should put your mom’s ashes in your cubby or your car. You don’t think that’s very very strange?
Boy: Are those really your mom’s ashes?
Derek: It’s strange, right? It’s strange.
Forgive and forget. That’s what they say. It’s good advice, but...
In life only one thing is certain, apart from death and taxes: No matter how...
Meredith: So, I got Alex to cover for me so I can leave right after I round on my patients… 48 uninterrupted hours!Derek: Yeah, yeah, yeah… um… you know, maybe this is not a good weekend.Meredith: What did Lexie say about me?Derek: She didn’t say anything. I did all the talking. Oh, don’t blame her.Meredith: So what, you’re friends with my sister now? I mean,...
The truth is painful. Deep down nobody wants to hear it, especially when it hits...
The thing about addiction is it never ends well, because eventually, whatever it...
Change; we don’t like it, we fear it, but we can’t stop it from coming. We...
Cristina: Meredith, please say something, say something!
Meredith: I...I don´t know.
Cristina: Say what I would say you if you were me.
Meredith: Got it.
Cristina: Good. Go.
Meredith: Stop whining. This is your wedding day. You will go down that aisle. You will get married! If I have to kick your ass, every step by the way to get you there. You will walk down the aisle and you will get married. Do you hear me Cristina? We need this. We need you to get your happy ending.
Cristina: Okay, I´m ready.
Cristina: What am I supposed to say? "I swear to love and cherish you every moment of everyday of my life?" I mean, th-th-that's not real. I mean, that's not how it works, right?
Callie: It does, at first, but then it...
Meredith: ...It passes.
Izzie: No it doesn't. You guys are just used to it, that's all. You already have it, you have that thing everybody else wants. You can take it for granted, but let me tell you, if you didn't - if you couldn't be with the person that you love, I guarantee that hearing him promise you to love you and honor you and cherish you, no matter what, it would be pretty much all you could think about.
Cristina: Wait, can you say that again? Just slowly.
Meredith: You're talking about Denny, right?
Maybe we accept the dream has become a nightmare. We tell ourselves that reality...
Meredith: When I drowned, it was different for you than it was for me. Something happened to me, and I really don't know how to explain it without sounding like...I just feel different - I wanna be better at everything, and I wanna let you in. I swear.
Derek: Did you practice that?
Meredith: With hand gestures, but I dropped those. Just, now is not the time to give up on me, ok? That´s what I´m saying.
Too often, the thing you want most is the one thing you can’t have. Desire...
Meredith: Then why are you still staring at the ceiling?
Derek: I don't know, it's just, that day, you came out of the water. I spent the scariest hour of my life, trying to breathe for you. I love you, and I want you, but I don't know what to...you didn't swim. You didn't swim and you know how to. And I don't know if I can... I don't know if I wanna keep trying to breathe for you.
Meredith: I should go. I'll go.
Some people believe that without history, our lives amount to nothing. At some...
Derek: You warned me she could become a problem.
Bailey: Who, Meredith?
Derek: You know when you love somebody, you think you can handle it all?
Bailey: You’ve done alright, both of you.
Derek: I came here to be chief, but Meredith complicates that.
Bailey: Huh. Well if this turns into an “either or,” you pick the person you love. End of story. Look, all of this means nothing if you’re alone.
This is from the episode 'Time after time' Season 3.
The thing about plans is they don’t take into account the unexpected, so...
