Knitting up a (Ratings) Storm!
Who knew knitting was such draw?

The newest episode of Grey's Anatomy, "Name of the Game," helped ABC to a dominating Sunday ratings victory last weekend. Once again, the show lconvincingly won its time slot in both total viewers and the coveted 18-49 age demographic, according to Nielsen Media Research.

With an estimated 22.4 million viewers and a 9.9 rating/23 share, Grey's Anatomy edged out its own lead-in, Desperate Housewives (22.1 million, 9.0/21), as the top show of the entire evening. Unfortunately for ABC, along with the show's legions of fans, there won't be a new episode until... hope you're sitting down... April 30.

Until then, we will have to make do with re-runs. The network will air "Something to Talk About" this Sunday. The episode is most memorable for the male patient who insists he is pregnant, and for a sheltered young girl who helps Alex realize, and express, his true feelings for Isobel. While we hate repeats on principle, we can make an exception for G.A. It's just too good!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
