2.01 Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

Derek: Meredith, I understand--
Meredith: Do you?! Somehow I doubt that. Because if you did, you would shut up, turn around and go back inside, because you would realize that I am this close to getting in my car and running you down in the PARKING LOT!!!

Derek: See there are moments for me, usually when I'm in the OR, when I just know what's going to happen next.
Derek: So I go upstairs, as I'm walking down the hall I try to prepare myself for what I'm going to see when I walk into my bedroom. I step on a man's jacket that doesn't belong to me. And everything I know...just shifts. Because the jacket that doesn't belong to me is a jacket that I recognize, what I know now is that when I go into my bedroom, I'm not just going to see that my wife is cheating on me. I'm going to see that my wife is cheating on me with Mark, who happened to be my best friend.... I walked out, flew out to Seattle.
Meredith: And then you met me.
Derek: And then I met you.
Meredith: What was I to you? The girl you screwed to get over being screwed?
Derek: You were like coming up for fresh air. It's like I was drowning and you saved me. That's all I know.
Meredith: It's not enough.
