Since the year 2005, the characters of “Grey’s Anatomy” have been stealing our hearts and breaking them as well. In those 11 years, we’ve coined some of their quotes and used them as our own.
1. “You’re my person.”
Thanks to “Grey’s Anatomy” we now have a new phrase for a friend that is even more than a friend. “My person” is someone you go to for everything and in Christina Yang’s case, “If I murdered someone, she’s the person I’d call to help me drag the corpse across the living room floor. She’s my person.”
2. “Dark and Twisty.”
3. “The carousel never stops turning.”
Ellis Grey was relentless with this saying. Translated, this means that life never stops–for everything that happens on a daily basis, you have to keep moving on.
4. “It’s a beautiful day to save lives.”
Derek Shepard’s (rest his beautiful soul) line every time he walks into an operating room. His good luck charm that charmed every soul who watched.
5. “Pick me. Choose me. Love me.”
Meredith Grey’s infamous line to pre-husband Derek Shepard about choosing love between his “more-than-an-affair” and “soon-to-be-ex-wife”.
6. “I’m just a girl in a bar.”
The start of it all. Meredith says this to Derek the first time she meets him without knowing who he actually is.
7. “Dance it out.”
The answer to everything. After anything horrible or awkward, grab “your person” and dance it out.
8. “Tequila is the answer.”
Tequila is Grey and Yang’s best friend. Technically, tequila would be their “person.”
9. “Somebody sedate me!!”
For someone who doesn’t show a lot of emotions, when everything unravels at once and the tears start forming, this is the only go-to thought.
10. And everyone’s least favorite, “Everyone’s dead.”
Seriously though Shonda Rhimes, cut us some slack!
