At the end of the day when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to someone. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it’s usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to and once we’ve chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them, the people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping and sure sometimes close can be too close but sometimes that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need.
Meredith Grey (Season 3, Ep.10- Don’t Stand So Close To Me)
DEREK: “We met at this bar, remember? We met and we, um, you said I’m just a girl, and I said I’m just a guy, and we started this thing. We started this thing. You didn’t know anything about me. The good, the bad, the wife. You didn’t even know my name. You didn’t know me. I want you to know me. I want to start over from the beginning. So, hi, I’m Derek Shepherd.” MEREDITH: [pauses] “You walked away, and now it’s too late. There’s too much water under the thing, or whatever.” DEREK: “Meredith… Please.” MEREDITH: “Hi, I’m Meredith Grey.” DEREK: “Very nice to meet you Meredith.” MEREDITH: “Nice to meet you too.”
Pairing - Reader X Derek Shepherd. Ex Dean, Sam, Doctors.

There are medical miracles. Being worshipers of the author of science, we don’t like to believe miracles exist but they do. Things happen; We can’t explain them, we can’t control them but they do happen. Miracles do happen. In medicine they happen everyday just not always when we need them to happen.
At the end of a day like this, a day where so many prayers are answered and so many aren’t, we take our miracles where we find them. We reach across the gap and sometimes against all odds, against all logic, we touch.

2/4 Storylines ~ Meredith/Finn/Derek love triangle
“This is not dating… I want moonlight and flowers and candy… and people trying to feel me up… nobody is trying to feel me up! Nobody is even looking at me! I’m an intern, do the two of you have any idea how much effort it takes to do all this? I’m waxed, I plucked and I have a clean top on and the two of you are looking at each other!”
“No talking until one of you figures out how to put on a date! I want heat, I want romance… damnit I want to feel like a freakin’ lady!”
MEREDITH: I can’t breathe. I can’t breathe with you looking at me like that! DEREK: You think I want to look at you? That I wouldn’t rather be looking at my wife? I’m married. I have responsibilities. She doesn’t drive me crazy. She doesn’t make it impossible for me to feel normal. She doesn’t make me sick to my stomach thinking about my veternarian touching her with his hands. Man, I would give anything to not be looking at you!
I this is THE season 2 MerDer moment. I just love it. And, of course, when they’re dancing the eye sex is stronger than ever. Their eyes are screaming, “I love you. I love you. I wish it were you I was dancing with.” To prove it, eye sex lead to real sex so…
“I think that’s what I’ve always wanted all these years, is for you just to stay little and quiet and safe… But you’re not any of those things. You’re loud and fearless and it scares the crap out of me.”
