Tonight's Episode: "Wishin' and Hopin'"
Last week's "Great Expectations" certainly lived up to them, and we have complete faith that tonight's episode, "Wishin' and Hopin,'" will follow that lead.

The race for the Chief's position is on, as Derek, Preston, Addison and even Mark compete for Richard's affections. We'll see who emerges as a contender in this four-horse race.

Meanwhile, a surgical patient endangers the lives of everyone around her, and Meredith's Alzheimer's-stricken mother, Ellis (played by the Emmy-nominated Kate Burton), experiences a change in her medical condition and becomes lucid.

How this affects the younger Dr. Grey - as well as Ellis' one-time lover, Richard, and his decision to retire - will be very interesting to see.

Lastly, Cristina and Callie consider the marriage proposals left on the table at the end of last week's show. According to the official Insider poll, 86 percent of you believe we'll hear at least one "yes."

Here's ABC's preview of tonight's show...

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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

You think that true love is the only thing that can crush your heart; that will take your life and light it up or destroy it. Then you become a mother.

Meredith
