DEREK: Tell me the stories.
MEREDITH: What stories?
DEREK: The ones you won’t let Sadie tell me.

MEREDITH: You did it?

MEREDITH: Another diary?
DEREK: More than one.
5x06 Life During Wartime
“You broke her. You called her ordinary. You taught her time and time again that nothing she does, ever, is good enough. Every good thing Meredith is happened despite you. She may not survive this, and that’s on you. That is on you.”
“It’s my fault. I wasn’t there for her. She was pulling away from me, and I…I… I just… She knows how to swim. She’s a good swimmer.”
“Hold on, OK? Hold on. I love you. Please don’t die. Do not die. Do you understand? I can’t live without you. If you die, I die. I picked you! I choose you. You don’t die on me! You stay awake! Stay awake. Derek! Derek, stay awake! Stay awake!”
“Look, it took me a long time to find him. A long time. And even then it took me a long time to even know that I wanted him. To be married, to be his wife, to have his kids. And now that I realize that… He’s lying on the table in there and my best friend’s hands…are inside his chest.”

MEREDITH: Thanks for calling.
DEREK: l love you.
MEREDITH: l know.
DEREK: Would you still love me if l wasn’t a surgeon?
MEREDITH: No. No, because lzzie…has skin cancer that’s spread to her brain. You’re one of about 20 people in the world who can save her. l don’t know if l respect somebody who could walk away from a gift like that. So please don’t. Here are her scans. lt’s pretty bad.

We started this thing and 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. Derek Shepherd.
MEREDITH: 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: It’s nice to meet you.
3X07 Where the Boys Are
MEREDITH: It’s the chase, isn’t it?
MEREDITH: The thrill of the chase. I’ve been wondering to myself, “Why are you so hell-bent on getting me to go out with you?” You know you’re my boss, you know it’s against the rules, you know I keep saying no. It’s the chase.
DEREK: Well, it’s fun, isn’t it?
MEREDITH: You see? This is a game to you. But not to me. Because, unlike you, I still have something to prove.
DEREK: It’s not the chase.
DEREK: You and me. It is not the thrill of the chase. It’s not a game. It’s… It’s your tiny, ineffectual fists. And your hair.
MEREDITH: My hair?
DEREK: It smells good. And you’re very, very bossy. Keeps me in line.
MEREDITH: I’m still not going out with you.
DEREK: You say that now.

DEREK: Seattle has ferryboats.
DEREK: l didn’t know that. l’ve been living here six weeks. l didn’t know there were ferryboats.

DEREK: So, it’s intense.This thing l have for ferryboats, l mean.
