Discuss "Drowning On Dry Land"

Amazing. Every time we think Grey's Anatomy can't raise the bar of intense drama any higher, it manages to exceed expectations. Part II of this three-part extravaganza was every bit as good as promised - and left many unanswered questions, as we have come to expect.

Joie--I so agree with you about Derek. My heart almost stopped when he walked out of the water carrying his Meredith in his arms. She looked so beautiful and fragile. I will never forget his face in that moment for the rest of my life. This episode made me love GA like never before.

We all have to know that Meredith will survive. Izzie's speech was foreshadowiing. Now we have to figure out which of the others won't make it next week and my money is still on Ellis. She is the most logical, not that Shonda and company always do the logical thing. My favorite scenes last night: 1. Mark coming to sit by his friend in the hall when Derek was devastated by Meredith's drowning.
2. Alex assuring Addison that he would notice if she went missing.
3. Burke coming to Derek to see what he could do to help and then going right in to do what he could.
4. Th interns gathered together to lend support for each other while the work to revive Meredith. Least favorite parts: 1. Izzie drilling holes in the guy's head, not found of the bloody, graphic parts and found the whole thing unnecessary to the story.
2. Burke and Cristina still bickering, (give us a break and give them some happy dialogue for a change.)
3. Meredith coming out of the water blue and lifeless.
4. Cristina telling Burke that Meredith is the person she would call on if she needed to drag a corpse across the floor. Burke obviously felt that he was the corpse in that scenario and was hurt once again. He does understand her, but there are timies when she needs to understand him, too. He has always been unsure of their relationship and sometimes he needs reassurance. This was one of those times.

That episode was unbelievable. I cried, laughed, sat on the edge of my seat, and screamed at the TV. I was great. Seeing Meredith carried out of the water by Derek all blue… The look on his face the rest of the night. It broke my heart, and when ADDISON was feeling for him- amazing! Sloan was even on queue this time! I am amazed! The end- so not cool! Now I have to wait an entire week!!! My favorite, or most memorable part was when Derek carried her out of the water. It was slow motion, he was terrified, shocked, numb, and broken all in that silent scene. Brilliant!!! BTW, Derek, I am so here if you need a hug or some support...

OMG!!!! That was so intense!!!I kept hitting my husband when they were doing CPR, I started to cry. Shonda you can't kill her off. OMG !OMG! My mother even called me crying saying that is so awful. I hope everything turns out great I'm just going to believe Izzy's quote " Believing we will survive, makes us survive" She will make , she has to make it. Come back to us Mer, don't worry Derek they will save, and if they don't I will never watch the show again, If they can write the script cruel then I can be cruel back. You can take that to the bank!!!!!

This is Izzy's speech: Izzie: She will come through this.
George: You don't know that.
Izzie: She will come through this.
George: People die.
Izzie: I know people die. People die in front of us everyday but I believe Meredith will survive this. I believe, I believe, I...I believe in the good. I believe that it's been a hell of a year and I believe that in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary that we will be okay. I believe a lot of things. I believe that...I believe that Denny is always with me. And I believe that if I eat a tub of butter and no one sees that the calories don't count. And I believe that surgeons who prefer staples over stitches are just lazy. And I believe that you are a man that made a terrible mistake marrying Callie and I believe that because I'm your best friend I can tell you this and we can be okay. I believe that even though you made this mistake you will be okay. I believe we survive, George. I believe that believing we survive is what makes us survive.

does anyone have the quote of Izzy's powerful and emotional speech outside of Meredith's operating room? Part of it was "I believe that believing we will survive, makes us survive." Thanks!!

Please don't let Meredith Die,, Maybe Yang will save her.......

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.

Meredith
