Joe: Straight tequila? Really? You are going to be sorry in the morning. Meredith: I’m always sorry in the morning. But tomorrow is my first day at work, so keep ‘em coming. Derek: Double scotch, single malt please. (to Meredith) So, is this a good place to hang out? Meredith: I wouldn’t know, never been here before. Derek: You know what? I haven’t either. First time here. I’m new in town. Never been to Seattle. New job soon. (Meredith doesn’t say anything) Ah, you’re ignoring me. Meredith: Um, trying to. Derek: Well you shouldn’t ignore me. Meredith: Why not? Derek: Because I’m someone you need to get to know to love. Meredith: Really? Derek: Oh, yes. Meredith: So if I know you, I’ll love you? Derek: Oh, yes. Meredith: You really like yourself, huh? Derek: Just hiding my pain. (they laugh) So what’s your story? Meredith: I don’t have a story. I’m just a girl in a bar. Derek: I’m just a guy in a bar.
“At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than your dream. The castle, well it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happily ever after – just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while, people may even take your breath away.”—Meredith Grey - Grey’s Anatomy (Save Me)
