One picspam per Private Practice episode: 1x01 - In Which We Meet Addison, a Nice Girl from Somewhere ElseAddison: If I hadn’t been here today, if you had someone else that girl would have died delivering her baby. I saved her life. I saved your asses! I’m a world class, neo-natal surgeon and I’m here to stay. Welcome to the new Oceanside Wellness.
Alex: Let’s say you were drafted to a team that wasn’t your first pick. You know, you don’t like the players. You hate the way they play the game. You even think the quarterback is full of crap. The quarterback’s a pain in the ass you don’t owe a damned thing to. But, it’s your team. You don’t quit. You don’t talk to the press. You don’t bitch to the coach. You just, you just go out there every Sunday and you make the blocks and you take the hits and you, you play to win. You show up and you suit up and you play, because it’s your freaking team.
Cristina: I can’t tell you, I can’t tell you what happened in that room. And before I could have, no guilt, no loyalties, no problem. Before, before I wouldn’t have even been in that room. I wouldn’t have gotten involved. I would have never frozen in surgery. And I would have told him what I thought he should do. I had an edge, sir. I had an edge and I’ve lost it, and I need it. I need it back. So, if you could just tell me, how you keep yours and how not to be affected, I know I could be a great surgeon. So if you could just give me the answers, I would really appreciate it.
Izzie: For a long time I made a career from my looks, so I get it, I’m a pretty girl. And not in a “from a certain angle” way, in an obvious way. It’s the blonde thing and the big boobs thing, big boobs are a key to obvious pretty if you know what I’m saying. It’s how men see me. I’m not a smart girl or an interesting girl, I’m a pretty girl. The blonde and the boobs it confuses guys into thinking that I’m someone else. And I’m used to it. And I’m used to them walking away when they realize…but then Denny goes and asks me to marry him. He doesn’t make me feel like I’m a pretty girl. He makes me feel like… Like me. I think he might know me. And so, if I did cut the LVAD wire, and I’m not saying that I did, but if I did, then no, I don’t feel guilty. And I know that I should. And I would if it were anybody else. But I can’t feel anything but happy.
George: Aren’t you gonna say anything or…I’m not gonna break…I’m starting to get a little freaked out, but I’m not gonna break. It’s not because I don’t care, because I do care what you think about me, I do. Care. I just can’t tell you want you want to hear. Which seems to be a theme in my life right now. Just because you can’t say something doesn’t mean you don’t want to, you can want to very much. You can be with a person and be happy with them and not love them. And you can love somebody and not want to be with them. You don’t need to love someone to want them. Now that’s frustrating, when what your brain tells you you want and what you actually want don’t match up. It’s exhausting. And, well, it’s complicated. But that’s life. And life…sucks.
Meredith: I’ve been going over this and over this in my mind trying to piece this together. It was you, you’re the reason my parents broke up. And it wasn’t just an affair, she really loved you. It wasn’t just this cheap thing where she didn’t tell you she was married. It wasn’t all a lie. She left her husband for you. But you stayed with your wife, because it was the right thing to do. Maybe safe, but she was the right person for you to be with. Let’s face it, my mother, nothing wrong with being safe, being with the good guy because he’s good and we are talking about forever here. You’ve never regretted your decision. You’ve never looked back…right?

Meredith, I want you to look at me. Look at me. I know this is bad. And I know that I’m this ass whose been yelling at you all day. So you pretend that I’m not, you pretend that I’m someone you like, whatever you need. But you need to listen to me.
