Originally Published: 

You never feel quite complete when your other half, aka “your person,” isn't around. When you think of Grey's Anatomy, Meredith Grey and her relationship with her bestie, Cristina Yang, come to mind before you even consider McDreamy. They are the truest soul mates on TV, because Meredith and Cristina are there for each other through thick and thin. They get one another in a way no one else could. If you're lucky enough to have a best friend, you know they’ll always have your back and be there to celebrate the good times. For all the Insta-worthy moments together, you definitely need some Grey's Anatomy quotes that only “your person” will understand.

While you may not be saving lives in Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital like Meredith and Cristina (before she left for another opportunity in Switzerland), you and your BFF can relate to all their other moments. You “dance it out” in your living room and love to share a drink at your fave bar after work. They are also the first person you call in an emergency, even if it’s just to chat about the latest Grey’s Anatomy episode. Since you don’t hesitate for a second to say “you’re my person” to them, you won’t need to waste a second when coming up with a caption on your next IG post either. All you need to do is use any of these “my person” quotes from Grey’s Anatomy.
