1.05 Shake Your Groove Thing
Derek: Well, let me take you out to dinner tonight. You can tell me all about it. Real food, waiters, big chunks of carbs in a basket.
Meredith: I can't.
Derek: Forget about the party.
Meredith: You know about the party?
Derek: Your friends will be at the party. You and I can be alone somewhere else.
Meredith: How do you know about the party?
Derek: Thanks for not inviting me, by the way. That felt good. Dinner,think about dinner, perfect opportunity.
Derek: You know, in some states, you could get arrested for that... So you blew me off for a bottle of tequila. Tequila's no good for ya. It doesn't call. It doesn't write. It isn't nearly as much fun to wake up to.
(She smiles and kisses him.)
Meredith: Take me for a ride, Derek.
Derek: You know, it sounds like the party's winding down. Listen to me. We should probably sneak inside, though.
Meredith: We've done enough sneaking for the night. It was good sneaking, but enough sneaking.
Derek: Yeah, I think we're good sneakers.
Bailey: You mind moving this tail wagon? You're blocking me in.
Derek: Apparently not good enough.
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. I mean seriously, don't be fooled by all the hot shoes and the great sex and the no parents anywhere telling you what to do. Adulthood is responsibility. Responsibility, it really does suck. 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? The scariest part about responsibility? When you screw up and let it slip right through your fingers.
Responsibility. It really does suck. Unfortunately, once you get past the age of braces and training bras, responsibility doesn't go away. It can't be avoided. Either someone makes us face it or we suffer the consequences. And still adulthood has it perks. I mean the shoes, the sex, the no parents anywhere telling you what to do. That's, pretty damn good.
