Grey’s Anatomy – S1E8

VO: You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairly tales? That fantasy of what your life would be? White dress. Prince Charming who’d carry you away to a castle on a hill. You’d lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus. The Tooth Fairy. Prince Charming. They were so close you could taste them. But eventually, you grow up. One day, you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely. ‘Cause almost everyone still has that smallest bit of hope and faith that one day they’ll open their eyes and it will all come true.

Grey’s Anatomy – S1E6

VO: A couple hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success: Never leave unto tomorrow, he said, that which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity. You’d think more of us would listen to what he had to say. I don’t know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I’d say it has a lot to do with fear.

VO: The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we haven’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs. Heard the philosophers. Heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time. Heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still, sometimes, we have to see for ourselves.

Grey’s Anatomy – S1E5

VO: Remember when you were a kid and your biggest worry was…like…if you’d get a bike for your birthday or if you’d get to eat cookies for breakfast? Being an adult…totally overrated.

Really, really sucks. Adults have to be places and do things and earn a living and pay the rent and if you’re training to be a surgeon…holding a human heart in your hands. Hello! Talk about responsibility. Kind of makes bikes and cookies look really, really good. Doesn’t it?
