Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x05, Bring the Pain

Pain comes in all forms. The small twinge, a bit of soreness…the random pains, the normal pains we live with every day. Then there’s the kind of pain you can’t ignore. A level of pain so great that it blocks out everything else; makes the rest of the world fade away. Until all we can think about is how much we hurt.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x25, 17 Seconds

You give in to a sin like envy or pride, then you only hurt yourself. Try lust, or coveting, and you’ll only hurt yourself, and probably one or two others. But anger… Anger is the worst. The mother of all sins. Not only can anger drag you over the edge, but when it does, you can take an awful lot of other people with you.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 1x03, Winning a Battle, Losing the War

After a while, the ways of residency become the ways of life. 1) always keep score. 2) do whatever you can to outsmart the other guy. 3) don’t make friends with the enemy. Oh, and yeah, 4) everything, everything, is a competition. Whoever said winning wasn’t everything never held a scalpel.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x03, Make Me Lose Control

Surgeons are control freaks. With a scalpel in your hand, you feel unstoppable. There’s no fear. There’s no pain. You’re ten feet tall and bulletproof. And then you leave the OR and all that perfection, all that beautiful control, just falls to crap.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x01, Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

To be a good surgeon, you have to think like a surgeon. Emotions are messy. Tuck them neatly away and step into a clean, sterile room where the procedure is simple. Cut, suture, and close. But, sometimes, you’re faced with a cut that won’t heal. A cut that rips its stitches wide open.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x26, Deterioration of the Fight or Flight Response

Human beings need a lot of things to feel alive. Family. Love. Sex. But we only need one thing to actually be alive. We need a beating heart. When our heart is threatened, we respond in one of two ways. We either run, or we attack. There’s a scientific term for this: Fight or flight. It’s instinct. We can’t control it. Or can we?

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x11, Owner of a Lonely Heart

As surgeons, we ignore our own needs so we can meet our patients’ needs. We ignore our friends and families, so we can save other people’s friends and families. Which means that, at the end of the day, all we really have is ourselves. And nothing in this world can make you feel more alone than that.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 1x09, Who’s Zoomin’ Who?

The thing people forgot is how good it can feel when you finally set secrets free. Whether good or bad, at least they’re out in the open, like it or not. And once your secrets are out in the open, you don’t have to hide behind them anymore. The problem with secrets is, even when you think you’re in control, you’re not.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x17, As We Know It

When the great beyond is heading for you, you feel it coming. Whatever it is, it’s creepy. Because, if you know, what do you do about it? Forget about the fact that you’re scared out of your mind? If you knew this was your last day on Earth, how would you want to spend it?

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x27, Losing My Religion

Let’s say you were drafted to a team that wasn’t your first pick. You know, you don’t like the players. You hate the way they play the game. You even think the quarterback is full of crap. The quarterback’s a pain in the ass you don’t owe a damn thing to. But, it’s your team. You don’t quit. You don’t talk to the press. You don’t bitch to the coach. You just…you go out there on Sunday and you make the blocks and you take the hits and you play to win. You show up and you suit up and you play. Because it’s your freaking team.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 1x04, No Man’s Land

Intimacy is a four syllable word for ‘here are my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger and enjoy.’ It’s both desired and feared. Difficult to live with, and impossible to live without.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 3x02, I Am a Tree

At any given moment, the brain has 14 billion neurons firing at a speed of 450 miles per hour. We don’t have control over most of them. When we get a chill, goosebumps, when we get excited, adrenaline. The body naturally follows its impulses. Which I think is part of what makes it so hard for us to control ours. Of course, sometimes we have impulses we would rather not control.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x20, Band-Aid Covers the Bullet Hole

As doctors, as friends, as human beings, we all try to do the best we can. But the world is full of unexpected twists and turns. And just when you’ve gotten the lay of the land, the ground underneath you shifts, and knocks you off your feet.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x16, It’s the End of the World

How crazy is this? Dude, it’s like the apocalypse. It’s true. I mean, look around you - half the people that are supposed to be saving lives have fled the building to save themselves. Bailey’s husband almost died coming to see his kid get born, and the Annoying Twins are down on the OR floor with a guy who literally might explode in their faces. It’s a morgue waiting to happen in here. I’m just saying, people should get while the getting’s good, because there might not be tomorrow.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 2x13, Begin the Begin

It’s important is that we never stop believing we can have a new beginning. But it’s also important to remember that amid all the crap are a few things really worth holding on to.

Grey’s Anatomy Rewatch - 1x08, Save Me

At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like…one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happy ever after. Just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while, people may even take your breath away.
