"Time waits for no man. Time heals all wounds. All any of us can wants, is more time. Time to stand up. Time to grow up. Time to let go."

MEREDITH [narrating]

Isn't this so cool? I mean, can you believe it? Tomorrow we're gonna be surgeons.


ALEX: "How do you not know your kid's pregnant?"
ADDISON: "You love your kids, you want to see the best in them."
ALEX: "Okay, then how do you have a baby and throw it in a trash can?"
ADDISON: "Something happens, and you panic. You freeze, and you wanna hide it and pretend like it didn't happen... I get that."
ALEX: "You get that?"
ADDISON: "I do. I just don't get what happens afterward. I don't get how you go back to class and pretend like everythings fine, everythings not fine."

[in flashback]
JOE: "Straight tequila? Really? You are going to be sorry in the morning."
MEREDITH: "I'm always sorry in the morning. But tomorrow is my first day at work, so keep 'em coming."
DEREK: "Double scotch, single malt please. [To Meredith] So, is this a good place to hang out?"
MEREDITH: "I wouldn't know, never been here before."
DEREK: "You know what? I haven't either. First time here. I'm new in town. Never been to Seattle. New job soon. Ah, you're ignoring me."
MEREDITH: "Trying to."

"There are moments. O'Malley... moments that in a split second your life changes forever, and before you know it... you're somewhere else."


IZZIE: "How did this happen? Why did we end up here? Why am I alone? Where's Denny?"
MEREDITH: "You're not alone, Izz."

[to Derek] "That's Alex's apple! That's just... rude."


[in flashback]
ADDISON: "Derek, Derek, Derek, you can't do this, Derek. Derek, we have to, we have to talk about this. You have to give me a chance to explain. What are you doing? What are you doing with my clothes, Derek?! It was one time. I know that's what people say. I know that is what always gets said. It's just I don't even know how it happened, I don't know what I was thinking. It was just he was just here, it was just-"
DEREK: "You screw my best friend and all you have to say is, 'He was just here?' [throws her clothes out the door] Get out."
DEREK: "Get out!"
ADDISON: "No, no I'm not going."
DEREK: "Get out of my house now!"

"You know they took his body away. I'll never see him again. How would you feel if you never saw Burke again?"


CRISTINA: "What is wrong with you?"
MEREDITH: "Everything with me is fine, it's Izzie we're worried about."
CRISTINA: "Oh, what did you do?"
MEREDITH: "Denny died. Burke got shot. Let's just have a little perspective and realize that what I did was a tiny, slightly small..."
CRISTINA: "Oh, whatever, just spit it out!"
MEREDITH: "I lost my panties, last night."

ADDISON: "This poor child... has to go home to a mom that's in juvie and grandparents are so clueless, they didnt even know their child was pregnant. What kind of childhood is that?"
ALEX: [pauses] "You can get over a bad childhood. You can have the worst crap in the world happen to you. You can get over it. All you gotta do is survive"

"It's time for you to retire, Richard."


Grey's Anatomy Season 3 Episode 1 Quotes

Four years of high school, four years of college, four years of med school. By the time we graduate we're in our late 20s and we've never done anything except go to school and think about science. Time stops. We're socially retarded. Ha, I mean, look at me, I'm in love with a guy who won't say he loves me back and here I am, in his kitchen, just hoping he comes home and notices me. I'm that girl, who sits in the back of the class and eats her hair. And Meredith, she's 17 years old, we're all 17 years old. This is high school with scalpels, Finn.


[in flashback]
Meredith: I have no story. I'm just a girl in a bar.
Derek: I'm just a guy in a bar.
