What About Grey's Anatomy This Week?

What About Getting Axed?
We have good news and bad news.

Let's get the bad out of the way first. This Sunday, ABC is supplanting Grey's Anatomy with new romantic drama What About Brian. Gag. Have you seen the previews for this show? It looks cheese-tastic and not all that original, although the involvement of executive producer J.J. Abrams (of Lost, Felicity, and Alias) warrants some optimism. What About Brian stars Barry Watson as a 34-year old bachelor who's had a tough go of it with romance, while his friends (three couples) have all paired up. Now sure about Brian's prospects for love or ratings, but we'll have to wait and see.

Now for the good news. Grey's Anatomy will reclaim its time slot a week later, April 23, while Brian and his friends move to Monday. ABC lists an episode entitled "Under Pressure" on its schedule for the Sunday after next. Phew! We certainly didn't want to wait until April 30. So the question is, who's under pressure and for what? Some possibilities:

  • Meredith -- to quit whining.
  • Alex -- to quit being an ass.
  • George -- to get married (by Calli).
  • Denny -- by constricting blood vessels in his chest.

While we really like these ideas, we have been informed by a devoted fan that the episode will be a "recap" episode, akin to the "Straight From the Heart" special from earlier this season. A little disappointing but better than nothing. Feel free to comment with your thoughts just the same. Or, at the very least, take part on our poll (on the right), or our Caption Contest!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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)

Derek: I wanna be with you forever, and you wanna be with me forever. In order to do that we need to make vows. A commitment. A contract. Give me a piece of paper.
Meredith: I don't! I... I... I don't. I have post its!
Derek: (takes the post its and a pen) Ok. What do we wanna promise each other?
Meredith: That you'll love me... even when you hate me.
Derek: To love each other, even when we hate each other. (writes it down) No running. Ever! (Mer smiles and comes and sits in front of him) Nobody walks out. No matter what happens.
Meredith: No running.
Derek: (writes it down) What else?
Meredith: That we'll take care of each other, even when we're old, and smelly, and senile. And... if I get Alzheimer's and forget you...
Derek: I will remind you who I am, every day. To take care when old, senile, and smelly (writes it down) This is forever. (signs it) Sign.
Meredith: This is our wedding. A post it? (smiles)
Derek: Mhmmm. If you sign it.
Meredith: (signs it, and hands it back. Has tears in her eyes) Now what?
Derek: Now I kiss the bride. (They kiss)
Meredith: (smiling) Married.
Derek: (smiling) Married. (sticks their post it in Mer's locker) You see that? (Mer nods and smiles) Plenty of time.
