Forty years ago, the Beatles asked the world a simple question: they wanted to know where all the lonely people came from. My latest theory is that a great many of the lonely people come from hospitals. More precisely, the surgical wing of hospitals.

Which means that, at the end of the day, all we really have is ourselves. And nothing in this world can make you feel more alone than that.Meredith Grey in Grey's Anatomy, Season 2 Episode 11

We choose life and for a moment we feel just a little bit less alone.Meredith Grey in Grey's Anatomy, Season 5 Episode 10
