McSteamy is staying put.

Eric Dane, who made his return to Grey's Anatomy in the waning moments of last Thursday's episode, has joined the cast of the hit medical drama as a regular, MSNBC confirms.

Dane plays plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Sloan, a.k.a. "McSteamy," a role he originated in a guest appearance last season, stole the show last week, and is already a fan favorite in spite of his limited exposure.

Grey's Anatomy marks Dane's second co-starring stint as a hot young doctor on an ABC medical drama. Several years ago, he played Dr. Wyatt Cooper on the network's Gideon's Crossing.

Suffice it to say, we're glad he's sticking around Seattle and are eager to find out what happens between Mark and Addison Shepherd (above).

I am glad he's here to stay. He really cares for addison and I am wondering if him being at Seattle Grace will get under Derek's skin.(I think Derek still cares for Addison and is going to be ticked once there relationship takes off/if it takes off). But I was wondering, did he fly all the way from New York to be by Addison' side or was he already there in Seattle because Richard had called him and ofter him a job?

I am so glad they made Eric Dane a regular cast member. He brings so much to the show. I want to see if Derek and him mend their broken friendship.

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.

Meredith

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.
