Grey’s Anatomy Season 13 Winter Finale Recap: Is Alex Going to Prison?>>>

“The trick is to go down fighting, to fight for the right cause, for the right person. And if you go down, you all go down together.”
“Surgeons fight. We fight against death. It’s our thing. But eventually, if history is any indicator, death is gonna win. We may win the battle, but we’re never gonna win the war. So the trick is to go down fighting, to fight for the right cause, for the right person. And if you go down, you all go down together.”
– Meredith’s opening voiceover

“Oh, we’re drinking tonight.”

“I promise you can’t judge me harsher than I judge myself every day.”
Owen: “You cheat on your wife, it’s gonna come back to bite you.”
Riggs: “We had our own problems. Megan and I. That’s what you’re saying, right? But we had problems and we were working on them. And I’m not just making excuses, but you weren’t in our thing, so you don’t know.”
Owen: “Riggs — “
Riggs: “And you hold me responsible. I know that. But I promise you can’t judge me harsher than I judge myself every day. It’s a life sentence, mate. And you, well, maybe you can’t understand that ’cause you’re, well, you’d never do it. You’re better than that. You’re better than me. You always have been.”
Owen: “I’m not better. I’ve made my mistakes.”

“This is your life. You’re Jo Wilson. You belong here.”

Jo: “After the trial, if I just take off, if I leave, it’s not because of you. It’s because my testimony will be a matter of record or whatever. But I don’t want you think that it’s you. Ever.”
Alex: “Hey. Don’t go anywhere, no matter what happens, okay?”
Jo: “I don’t want him to find me. He can’t find me.”
Alex: “This is your life. You’re Jo Wilson. You belong here.”

“There’s nothing more personal than this job … Every decision that you make should be a personal one.”
Bailey: “She’s the Curriculum Director. You are the Chairman of the Residency Program. You’re overseeing the whole thing.”
Richard: “But I’m ornamental, and you know it. You didn’t want to discuss it with me. You don’t want to hear my opinions about a program that I built, that I trained you in. That’s not respect.”
Bailey: “I made a decision about what is best for the hospital moving forward, and I didn’t want my personal feelings, my very strong personal feelings, to get in the way of that decision. If I do that, I won’t be able to do this job.”
Richard: “Bailey, we reach into people’s bodies and hold their lives and their futures in our hands. There’s nothing more personal than this job, in how we treat a patient, in how we raise our doctors and teach them how to do this work. Every decision that you make should be a personal one. If it isn’t, then you have no business being chief.”

“This is about you. You will be destroyed. Your life, your career, everything will be finished. Who you are will be gone.”

Meredith: “Tomorrow, you’re going to go into the court, and you’re gonna tell them who you are, that you’re a surgeon who saves children, that you make waffles for children, that you did one stupid thing. And you will face whatever it is you have to face, but you are not going to throw yourself on the mercy of whatever and walk into prison, okay?”
Alex: “You’ll be okay.”
Meredith: “Me? This is about you. You think this is noble, what you’re doing? It isn’t. It’s giving up. And it’s buying into everything you’ve ever said about yourself, and I won’t let you do it.”
Alex: “Look, you’ll be fine.”
Meredith: “You are not going to jail.”
Alex: “You’ll be just fine.”
Meredith: “Stop making this about me! Stop using me as an excuse to make yourself feel better. Of course I will be fine. I’m always fine. Don’t you know that? This is about you. You will be destroyed. Your life, your career, everything will be finished. Who you are will be gone.”

“This is ridiculous. He is the program.”
Jackson: “Look, I know a lot of you guys didn’t come up in this program. But I did. April did. And the difference between the education that we got at Mercy West and what we got under Webber?”
April: “No, there’s no comparison.”
Arizona: “This is ridiculous. He is the program.”

“I will go down swinging for you, Alex. You know I will. But that means you can’t give up.”
“Alex, listen to me. You’re better than this. You’re stronger. Because it’s just us now. There were five of us, and now it’s just you and I. And it can’t be just me. It can’t be. I will go down swinging for you, Alex. You know I will. But that means you can’t give up. You don’t throw the fight. So whatever you’re doing this for, please, don’t.”
– Meredith’s voicemail for Alex
