Denny Duquette One of TV's Most Memorable "Obit Players" of 2006

by at . Comments

As the year draws to a close, Michael Slezak of Entertainment Weekly looks back at three of TV's most memorable TV characters... who met their maker in 2006. One of them is none other than our own Denny Duquette, the heart patient and fiancé of Izzie (Katherine Heigl), played so masterfully by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Here's his brief obituary
:

Closet millionaire Denny Duquette died during May sweeps from complications following heart transplant surgery at Seattle Grace Hospital. He is survived by a fiancée, Isobel "Izzie" Stevens, a surgical intern who may have contributed to his death prior to attending a prom. (Don't ask.)

More importantly, though, Denny leaves behind a blueprint for how men can look hot and stubbly while stricken and attached to tubes, heart monitors, and even LVAD machines.

We miss you, Denny. We miss you.

its because of Denny that I started watching Grey's. I was flipping through the channels and stopped when this man with the most beautiful eyes and smile came on the screen. I was hooked completely!!! I bought the first season, watched it in one day and I'm obsessed to this day. All because of Denny Duquette.

Very cool. He had a very large fan base at GA and it is nice that his character is recognized. I hope that his new movie with Uma Thurman is a big hit. He looks great in a fireman suit.

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)

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.
