Grey's Anatomy Cast in Seattle This Week
While most TV shows are content to stick close to L.A., Grey's Anatomy tries to actually make its version of Seattle look real by visiting the Emerald City from time to time, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer reports.

Credit must be given to Bellevue, Wash., native Peter Horton (left) the show's lead director and an executive producer, for these visits. Of course, it also helps that Grey's Anatomy is now on Thursdays and probably ABC's most important series.

According to the P-I, cast members have been sighted downtown this week. The phone lines at the paper lit up with fans happily reporting seeing the show's handsome leading men, Drs. Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) and Burke (Isaiah Washington).

The Insider is happy to have gotten a first-hand account of the cast's visit from a devoted fan and Seattle resident, Kimberly Lind, who writes to us:

"Being the obsessive fan I am, when I heard that Grey's filming in my own precious Seattle this morning, I rushed downtown as quickly as possible.

They were just wrapping up their scene in front of the Westin Hotel. I got a few grainy pictures of Isaiah Washington, James Pickens, Jr., and Patrick Dempsey as they mingled with the crowd, signing autographs and posing for pictures.

The guys were all dressed like they were heading out for a camping or fishing trip. Dr. Burke's hand seemed to be operating fairly normally. And the scene I witnessed, as I said, was shot in front of a five-star hotel.

The cast and crew were also spotted in Pioneer Square, Seattle's historic district, where they filmed some scenes at a bakery."

Thanks, Kimberly -- and go, Seattle!

Seattle, Washington

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.
