Thursday's Episode: "My Favorite Mistake"

at . Comments

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.

T.R. Knight & Katherine Heigl
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...

Check out this brief preview:


As usual, we'll have our episode recap, music guide, list of quotes and image gallery from Thursday night up after the show. Can't wait!

Loved, loved, loved the footsie scene with Burke and Cristina. So cute. And the way she just kind of crawled over him, and the foot warming. And the way he smiled at her, and wrapped his arms around her. So Burke. And I loved her wedding demands. The mosquito net line was hysterical. So Cristina. Last night's episode was saved for me by the final scenes of Burke and Cristina and Mer and Der. Thank goodness going into a three week hiatus we have some happy resolution to the issues for the two primary couples. I'm not happy about George and Izzie. They have always been friends. I thought George was to Izzie what Cristina was to Meredith, but that doesn't mean they should sleep together. I really wish they had kept them as close friends. Plus I really am a little tired of the adultery. By the way, when Izzie told Addison that she slept with the wrong guy, how did Addison know it was a married wrong guy? She immediately started talking about adultery. Loved Alex last night. He was so sweet with "Ava". Do you really think Mark will be named Chief? I can't imagine it, but maybe that is why he doesn't follow Addison to her new spin off. Sure do hope nasty Marlow is gone, forever!


sorry McKatie.. no new episode this week. I have no clue why there are all these like 3 week break between episodes.. I'm getting really sick of iitt. PS, I have become addicted to this website almost as much as I am addicted to Grey's!!


mmk. i LOVED last night's episide. eppecially the MerDer scenes.. like WOW. haha the last on of them "8...7..6...5...4..3..2.." haha that was soo cute!! some one please answer me this...:


OMG! i am so confused... ok so does George like Izzie too? Cuz she seemed into him but he was so mad and guilty it seemed like he regretted it more than enjoyed being with Izzie.. I dont really like the whol GIZZIE thing but i did want them to kiss last night in the closet. MerDer are so freakin cute i hope they stay together for a long time cuz i cant handle a break up.. I heard the Christina and Burke break up but last night they seemed all chummy and ok with the relationship soooo i guess we will have to wait a while to see that. And its true tho..... your Tivo isnt broken McBiggest fan. There isnt a new episode until April 12... EWW! i hate the anticipation... cant we just have our weekly dose of GA without having to wait 3 weeks. Well the next episode better be worth waiting for..


i was surprised too not to see these moments, they must be in next week's ep ..


ok, I'm a little confused.
In the little promo for lastnights episode on this cite. there is Meredith and Derek talking about some theory and Mark jumproping and talking about not having sex for 8 days. Now I have watched "My Favorite Mistake" 3 times already (so I'm a little obsessed) and none of that happend. Am I missing something? haha, because that really confused me. oh and someone PLEASE tell me that my TiVo is wrong and the next episode of Grey's isn't April 12th. I hate all these long breaks they take.. what's the deal?


I dont think that they have updated the website yet, cause there are no new quotes.


OMG! I loved the episode! I agree about Izzie and George also, they were mean't to be. :)




I think this is a funny take- adult language- but take a look... George gets away with a lot!


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)

Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again.
