If we’ve learned anything after watching 16 full seasons of Grey’s Anatomy, it’s that the surgeons at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital have a way with words. Whether you’re in the midst of heartbreak or in need of a pep talk, take a look at these quotes that touch on love, loss, friendship, and the stress of everyday life. (And if you’re a true fan, challenge yourself by figuring out which episode each quote is from … before binge-watching the series for the hundredth time to confirm your answers.)
Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He’s very dreamy, but he’s not the sun. You are.
I love you, in a really really big, pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.
And if you can’t do it, if you aren’t willing to keep looking for light in the darkest of places without stopping, even when it seems impossible, you will never succeed.
Oh screw beautiful! I’m brilliant! If you want to appease me, compliment my brain.
You were like coming up for fresh air. It’s like I was drowning and you saved me.
The only time I don’t feel like a ghost is when you look at me, because when you look at me, you see me. You see me. This is me.
There’s an end to every storm. Once all the trees have been uprooted. Once all the houses have been ripped apart. The wind will hush, the clouds will part, the rain will stop, the sky will clear in an instant. But only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it.
It’s good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose.
As human beings, sometimes it’s better to stay in the dark, because in the dark there may be fear, but there is also hope.
You are my person. You will always be my person.
It doesn’t matter how tough we are. Trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives. Trauma messes everybody up. But maybe that’s the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all that is what keeps us moving forward. It’s what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
Please, don’t chase me anymore, unless you’re ready to catch me.
Change … we don’t like it, we fear it. But we can’t stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow. Anybody who tells you it doesn’t, is lying. But here’s the truth: Sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes, change is good. Sometimes, change is … everything
Breakthroughs don’t happen because of the medicine. Real breakthroughs happen because someone is scared to death to stop trying.
Not all wounds are superficial. Most wounds run deeper than we can imagine. You can’t see them with the naked eye. And then, there are the wounds that take us by surprise. The trick with any kind of wound or disease, is to dig down and find the real source of the injury. And once you’ve found it … try like hell to heal that sucker.
