Meredith Grey Quotes

Sunday, July 24 by Chuck G.

If you like television dramas, you will enjoy these Meredith Grey quotes from the hit series "Grey's Anatomy." The show is narrated by Dr. Meredith Grey, who is played by Ellen Pompeo. Meredith is the daughter of the world famous surgeon Dr. Ellis Grey and is best friends with Dr. Christina Yang, whose ambition to become a famous cardiovascular surgeon clouds her judgment on making good personal life decisions. Meredith is the post-it-note wife to neurosurgeon Dr. Derek Shepherd. Meredith's life has had twist and turns throughout the series. She almost drowned, lost a baby, discovered she had a half-sister, got into a "fake" married and a host of other events that have led to these awesome quotes.

  1. "I can't think of any one reason why I want to be a surgeon, but I can think of 1,000 reasons why I should quit." This memorable Meredith Grey quote is her reflection on why she's even in residency at Seattle Grace. In the end, she loves playing the game.
  2. "Stop looking at me like that… Like you've seen me naked." Dr. Shepherd likes to give Meredith that "I've seen you naked look." She's embarrassed, but girls love it.
  3. "Without parents to defy, w break the rules we make for ourselves. We throw tantrums when things don't go our way. We whisper secrets with our best friends in the dark. We look for comfort where we can find it. And we hope. Against all logic. Against all experience. Like children, we never give up hope." An insightful Meredith Grey quote as a narrative voice.
  4. "I was swimming. I was fighting. And then I thought, just for a second, I thought 'What's the point?' And I let go. I stopped fighting. Don't tell anybody." Meredith had a near death experience where she almost drowned. She revealed her thoughts to a patient named Denny. 
  5. "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 your faced with a cut that won't heal, a cut that rips the stitches right open." This Meredith Grey quote sums up how surgeons might feel about the whole process of cutting into a patient.
  6. "After all this time, all your warnings about me sleeping with my boss and you're doing the same exact thing." Christina chastised Meredith for sleeping with a resident. She then and went and did the same thing. Uh, huh.
  7. "We're adults. When did that happen? And how do we make it stop?" One of the best Meredith Grey quotes on growing up. She'd rather stay clueless and innocent.
  8. "Intimacy is a four syllable word for 'Here is my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger.'" Meredith understands that love hurts. She should know, she fell in love with a married man, not that she knew it at the time.
  9. "I actually said 'pick me.' Right? I did? 'Pick me'?" In this Meredith Grey quote she is talking to bartender Joe about the conversation she had with Derek. She actually pleaded that he pick her over his wife.
  10. "I just need something to happen, I need a sign that things are going to change. I need a reason to go on. I need some hope!" Of course Meredith wants to stay in bed. Christina is having none of it. She tosses Meredith out of bed.
