character:thatcher grey

You’re not my father, you’re just the guy who used to pour my cereal. And, if you die it probably won’t change my life that much. But, it will change hers. If you die, it will break her. And, I’m not gonna let you do that. I don’t know what it’s like to have a father, but I do know what it’s like to have a sister. And, it’s good.
—  Meredith Grey - Tainted Obligation

George: (To Thatcher) “Well, Meredith is anything but cold. She smiles. Not that often, but when she does, uh… you know, because she’s been going through a lot,… but… it’s… it’s like you feel warm. She’s kind. I mean, she can be a little selfish. She can be… She’s flawed, but she’s kind. She cares about people. And, uh, she cares about… about her patients. I think she’s going to be a brilliant surgeon. You know, around here, she’s known as the one to beat. So, I… I mean, I guess she has that in common with her mom, but… I think the rest of her… I think, uh, I think the rest of that she gets from you.”
Mer: “Thank you, George."
