I’ve heard that it’s possible to grow up – I’ve just never met anyone who’s actually done it. Without parents to defy, we 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.

My fantasy is not two men looking at each other! [but..] No talking until one of you figures how to put on a date! I want heat, I want romance, dammit! I want to feel like a frikkin lady!

Alex: Maybe it hurts for a reason.

Dr. Cristina Yang: It’s like candy, but with blood. Which is so much better!

Mistakes are painful, but they’re the only way to find out who you really are.
