Another monologue from Greys! Hope you like it 🙂
Sometimes you just need to get out of town, get a new perspective. But you can’t always see that you need a new perspective because well, you need a new perspective to be able to see that. It’s complicated.
Open your eyes. What do you see? More possibilities? Does your new view give you more hope? That’s the goal. Although, it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes a shift in perspective just makes you see what you’ve lost.
Long time no see Monologues! Here’s an old one from our very own favourite Grey’s Anatomy.
Season 1, Episode 8: Save Me
“You know how when you were a little kid, and you believed in fairy tales? That fantasy of what your life would be. White dress, Prince Charming, who’d carry you away to a castle on a hill. You’d lie in bed at night and close your eyes, and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close, you could taste them. But eventually, you grow up. One day you open your eyes, and the fairy tale disappears. Most people, turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is… it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely. Because almost everyone still has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they’ll open their eyes, and it will all come true.”
“At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like, one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle… well, it may not be a castle. And, it’s not so important that it’s happy ever after. Just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in a while… people may even take your breath away.”
This week’s Grey’s Anatomy Monologue is from Season 7, Episode 2: “Shock to the System”
Lightning doesn’t often strike twice. It’s a once in a lifetime thing. Even if it feels like the shock is coming over and over again. Eventually the pain will go away, the shock will wear off. And you start to heal yourself. To recover from something you never saw coming. But, sometimes the odds are in your favour. If you’re in just the right place at just the right time you can take a helluva hit. And still have a shot at surviving.
This particular monologue is from Season 7, Episode 21. Such a beautiful one based on adapting.
“We’ve all heard the same. It’s one of those things we learn in the seventh grade’s science class. Adapt or die. Adapting isn’t easy though. You have to fight your competition. Defend of their attacks. And sometimes, you have to kill. You do what you need to do to survive.”
“Adapt or die. As many times as we’ve heard it, the lesson doesn’t get any easier. The problem is, we’re human. We want more than just to survive. We want love, we want success. We wanna be the best that we can be. So we fight like hell to get those things. Anything else feels… like death.”
