Fantastic news: We won't have to wait until March 29 to see how the whole George-Izzie hook-up debacle and everything else from "Scars and Souvenirs" plays out.

Grey's Anatomy returns with a new episode this Thursday, "My Favorite Mistake," instead of the originally-scheduled repeat.

Why the change? Apparently, ABC was encouraged by the opening-week numbers of October Road following Grey's Anatomy last Thursday, and didn't want to lose any of that momentum going into its second episode.

With the possible exception of American Idol, there's certainly no greater momentum source on TV right now than an original episode of Grey's Anatomy.

Whether one can actually stomach October Road is another story.

But hey, if it means an all-new Grey's Anatomy instead of a rerun, we're all for it, right? Sure. Just go with it.

In "My Favorite Mistake," Callie's father (Hector Elizondo) visits Seattle Grace and meets George, who's in no shape for an introduction. Meanwhile, the candidates for the Chief's position are interviewed, including Colin Marlow (Roger Rees). Alex continues to help Jane Doe (Elizabeth Reaser) find her place in the world, and George and Izzie... well...

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

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)
