Meredith (opening voiceover): Doctors spend a lot of time focused on the future, planning it, working toward it. But at some point you start to realize your life is happening now. Not after med school, not after residency, right now. This is it. It's here. Blink and you'll miss it.
Meredith (to 'John Doe'): Hey there, I know this must be scary. But, if it's any consolation you're a hardcore hero. You saved that woman's life. (John Doe grabs Mer's hand and tries to write something) Is he trying to write something? (tries to give him a pen) Can you hold this? (he's too weak. Mer grabs his hand) Okay, you'll be stronger tomorrow.
Owen: Call OR 1, tell them to get ready for him.
Cristina: (to Owen) I can't breathe without you.
Meredith: It's important to take the time to tell the people you love you love them while they can still hear you.
Derek: I think he's going to surprise us all.
Mark: I think he's going to come back in a body bag.
Meredith: Amanda, you can't be out here.
Amanda: Would you want to be all alone at a time like this? We had thirty seconds of interaction before he saved my life, and I wasn't even nice. I was standing on a corner when this ordinary-looking guy stands next to me and smiles, and I'm so busy scoping for someone hotter that I don't even give him a second look. The next thing I know, he throws me out of the way of a bus I'm about to walk in front of and almost gets himself killed! He literally he swept me off my feet. That is my prince in that bed
Bailey: Uh, not a good time.
Arizona: You know what? You walk away from me again, I swear I will grab you by the hair and pull hard. I grew up with the name Arizona. I learned how to play dirty on the playground! ... I stuck my neck out for you, you were my pick.
Bailey: And I appreciate that, but it's a big decision.
Arizona: It's not, frankly. It's the brass ring. It's the most exclusive, the most competitive and we're as good as it gets. Nobody lands this thing and says no.
Bailey: My husband informed me that if I accept the peds fellowship, if I sign on for another 2 years of training, and the hours and the work load that come with it when I could be a general surgery attending, and make it home for dinner. He will divorce me. It's a big decision!
Alex: Wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up, wake up...
Izzie: I have a headache.
Alex: You're up... You're up and you're talking. You talked right? Talk!
Izzie: Ow, I said I have a headache.
Alex: Page Shepherd.
Meredith (closing voiceover): Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow.
