10 'Grey's Anatomy' Quotes That Will Inspire You To Push One Of Epi And Live Your Best Life

10 'Grey's Anatomy' Quotes That Will Inspire You To Push One Of Epi And Live Your Best Life

He is not the sun. You are.

Every Grey's Anatomy fan remembers the moment Meredith proclaimed her love for Derek with the infamous line, "Pick me, choose me, love me."

While this moment is iconic and officially secured MerDer fans, it's honestly the most pathetic Meredith has looked throughout the entire series. She is literally begging a married man to divorce his wife because she's desperately in love with him. Granted, she realizes how crazy she sounds, but that doesn't change how unhealthy this is. There are plenty more positive quotes from our favorite Grey Sloan Memorial doctors that we should be recognizing. Here are 10 of my favorites examples:

1. "Oh, screw beautiful. I'm brilliant!" - Cristina Yang

Season 7, Episode 17: Cristina flirts with Owen while also affirming what we all already know about her.

2. "Handle it? I'm a frickin' warrior queen." - Jo Wilson

Season 14, Episode 1: After joking with a 7-year-old patient that thinks Jo looks like a superhero character, Jo assures Alex that she's ready to perform a surgery on the boy.

3. "You are a powerful woman, and you know your own mind." -Miranda Bailey

Season 14, Episode 2: Miranda reminds Jo that she can feel however she wants after the fight between Alex and Andrew.

4. "I go a little dark and twisty, but then I come back." -Meredith Grey

Season 13, Episode 9: Meredith tells Amelia how she copes with Derek's death.

5. "Shout your answers. Make yourself heard. Whatever it takes, just find your voice." -Meredith Grey

Season 12, Episode 9: Meredith wraps up the episode in which she got attacked by a patient with her voiceover.

6. "Being aware of your crap and actually overcoming your crap are two very different things." -Cristina Yang

Season 4, Episode 6: Cristina gives Meredith some of her amazing life advice.

7. "You did a terrible thing. It doesn't mean you're a terrible person." -Miranda Bailey

Season 8, Episode 18: Miranda reassures Owen about his relationship with Cristina.

8. "We're done here." -Miranda Bailey

Season 14, Episode 11: Miranda dismisses a doctor who does not believe she is having a heart attack, even though Miranda knows she is.

9. "You didn't love her because you don't destroy the person that you love." -Callie Torres

Season 4, Episode 4: Callie tells off a patient who tries to abandon his girlfriend that he forced to lose weight.

And the most important one of them all...

10. "You are a gifted surgeon with an extraordinary mind. Don't let what he wants eclipse what you need. He's very dreamy, but he's not the sun. You are." -Cristina Yang

Season 10, Episode 24: Cristina tells Meredith goodbye before she moves to Zurich and reminds her not to let Derek control her whole life.

13 Movies Every Couple Needs To Watch Before They Get Married

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories.


These 13 movies are the foundation of any long-lasting relationship, and I'm not joking. Each movie will show you something new about your partner, and make you ask each other the hard questions. How many kids do you want and how are you going to raise them? What would happen if you got into a horrible accident? Some are less serious though, like what if you could time travel?

I promise that not every one of these movies is a Nicholas Sparks classic, and I also promise that not every movie has Rachel McAdams in it!

1. "The Time Traveler's Wife"

This movie is both heartbreaking and amazing.

2. "About Time"

Let's be honest, Rachel McAdams is in all the best love stories. It's on Netflix right now, so grab some snacks and turn it on!

3. "Like Crazy"

This infamous Tumblr gif came from "Like Crazy." It's about a couple who goes long distance and build their life together. I used to cry every time I watched it, and I'm no crier! It also has the (now famous) Felicity Jones in it.

4. "The Notebook"

Every girl wants this kind of love.

5. "The Last Song"

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are literally married now so if that isn't good luck, I don't know what is.

6. "Safe Haven"

You guessed it! This is another Nicholas Sparks classic. This movie has a dark twist as well, which men will love.

7. "Inside Out"

You may be thinking that this one is a bit weird. Well, this movie will help both you and your partner understand each other's emotions better.

8. "The Choice"

This movie is great because the female lead is feisty and extremely intelligent, which usually doesn't happen in love stories. How do you keep the love alive with a woman who is hard to get, and even harder to keep entertained?

9. "The Longest Ride"

Originally I could not stand the main female lead (Britt Robertson) but now she is in one of my favorite shows (For The People), so I have no choice. This movie had me on the end of my seat, and as a rom-com it is a must.

10. "The Age Of Adaline"

I began loving the name 'Adaline' thanks to this movie. This unlikely love story and self love journey really gets me.

11. "The Vow"

Imagine falling in love with someone and building a life, but an accident forces you to start all over?

12. "Titanic"

If they don't have any sort of reaction to this movie, they are probably not the one for you.

13. "Yours, Mine, & Ours"

Yours, Mine, & Ours is a true classic. Are you Helen or Frank Beardsley? You should figure that out before you tie the knot!

You're welcome!
