Meredith (V.O.): In the hospital, we see addiction every day.
George: I- I feel this, uh, this- this, uh, this exhilaration. It's like I- it's like I finally figured it out. You know what it's like? It's like when- it's like I was sleeping, and I- it's like I woke up. And it's just- it's just amazing.
Jane: When you stood up in front of Preston's friends and loved ones and you said, "It's over. It's over. It's so over." Were you trying to smash the hopes of the best man, or were you just trying to be funny? Meredith: I- Jane: Because making light of that situation would be inappropriate. And to use that moment to send a message to your boyfriend... well, that's... selfish. So were you being inappropriate, or were you being selfish?
Mark: I'm afraid I haven't found anybody who will put up with me. Archie: Well, get on the stick. Don't do like I did. Don't be a bachelor your whole life. You can only play the field for so long. Then suddenly one day, your whole life passes you by, and those parts aren't working like they used to. Mark: They have medicine for that now. Archie: They don't have medicine for that "all alone" part, now do they? Mark: No, I suppose not.
Izzie: You can't tell her. George: Wh- ...we decided. I'm supposed to tell her. I have to tell her tonight. Izzie: No, I know. You can't. You just- you can't, okay? I'm working with her. She's my boss. George: Damn it!
George: Marriage is... once you're in, you're in. Burke is smart, you know? He didn't make a mistake. 'Cause it's a mistake that, you know,it's hard to take back. Which, even if you want to take it back, you can't. So you can tell him that. Once you're in,you're in.
George: Oh, I'm already married. Jane: You're already married? George O'Malley- Burke's friend, Burke's guy- staying in a marriage out of obligation? That's no way to live. That's no way to love. But I think you know that. George: I do. Sometimes I do.
Meredith: Derek, we agreed... "S" and "M" only. Derek: "S" and "M"? Meredith: Sex and mockery.
Jane: So you would've ended it, too? Derek: Well... Burke and I are- are built differently. He's stronger than I am. He was strong enough to... and, um, we're not built the same. Jane: Honorable men are all built the same. Derek: And you think I'm an honorable man? Jane: Do you know when to walk away? Do you know when not to take less than you deserve? If you do, then you're an honorable man.
Meredith: My dad disappeared when I was 5 years old, and I never saw him again. Does that sound like the daddy you grew up with? I kicked a man out of my bed in the middle of the night – the world's most perfect man, who loves me, and I can't let him. And it doesn't take a shrink to figure out why. Because our dad chose you. So I'm sure you are a very nice girl, Lexie. But I hope you can understand, you're not a girl I ever wanted to have to know.
Jane: I wanted to say I'm sorry. I... I've come to know you, I think. And what you love even more than Preston is being a surgeon. You are planning to continue with cardiothoracic surgy like my son, am I correct? Cristina: Yes. Jane: So I'm sorry you lost the man you love. But more than that, I'm sorry you lost your teacher. With him by your side... you could've become a brilliant heart surgeon. Cristina: I see. Jane: You're a strong woman, Cristina. I respect that. I wish I could've been born at another time. I might be more like you.
