Can This Friendship Last?

It's official. Thanks to the bitterness of George, the infant-related antics of Cristina and the burgeoning, confusing friendship between Meredith and McDreamy, Grey's Anatomy is the king of Sunday night.

This week's new episode averaged 22.5 million viewers, good for a 9.9 rating/23 share in the coveted adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates from Nielsen Media Research.

Our favorite show has been on a ratings roll since it captured an audience of 38 million people with its post-Super Bowl bonanza last month. This Sunday, it outshone its strong lead-in, Desperate Housewives. The pair helped ABC dominate the evening in total viewers over other networks that can only dream of such a wonderful cast and team of writers.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.

Richard

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
