Tonight's Episode Preview: I Am a Tree

Cristina Looks On
Tonight's episode, "I Am a Tree," (9 p.m. EST) takes its name from a song written by Doug Gillard, and performed by Guided by Voices. We'll see if the voices of the interns can successfully guide Izzie back into the internship program, which they will attempt to do.

Cristina, meanwhile, has the honor of meeting Dr. Burke's parents, Jane and Donald (played by Diahann Carroll and Richard Roundtree) under rather awkward circumstances. To say the least. You've seen the previews.

Also, a distraught Addison takes a break from her hospital duties, a surgical patient lives what may be her last day to the fullest, and somebody's panties are tacked up on the bulletin board, which can only lead to good things.

Some of you in Canada, of course, have already seen this. But the rest of us are looking forward to it. We'll have our exclusive Episode Guide, pics and quotes up after the show, so check back!

Catch up on last week's season premiere, "Time Has Come Today," by reading our comprehensive guide as well as our staff's Round Table discussion. Check out our list of memorable quotes and our image gallery from the episode, too.

Hello! Good Site! Thanks you! bvlildrssoayh


Okay, here are my thoughts on tonight's episode. First, is Meredith completely spineless?? I can't believe she is hesitating a moment over her decision over Derek and Finn. Isn't she deeply, morosely in love with McDreamy? Come on! Finn is sweet in a brotherly way. Derek is the love she has been pining for for two seasons.
Second, Mrs. Burke has to go. Give our girl Cristina a break. She didn't have a minute alone with Preston and those are my favorite moments. His Dad is kind of cute though. I hope that Mama won't turn Dr. Burke against Cristina at the same time that Cristina is realizing how much she loves the good doctor. Third, I am definitely becoming a Calli fan and George is, too. Fourth, Izzie is so lost and sad. I was very happy to see Bailey come and talk to her and hope that she is reinstated even though I don't think there is a chance in the world that that would happen in real life. Finally, it would be great to add a plastic surgeon to the cast on a permanent basis, and one who looks so good almost wearing a towel most certainly would be a very steamy addition.


I can't wait either, I'm super excited. I don't want to go to school in fear of missing it!!! LoL.


Me too im so excited!!!Ive been waiting since 9:00pm last thursday for this


i cant wait!!


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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
