Addison's Big Day
The big day is here.

In tonight's two-hour special, Addison (Kate Walsh) takes leave from Seattle Grace and makes a road trip to L.A. to visit some old friends from med school, while the rest of the surgical team struggles with its own set of problems as the season finale quickly approaches.

Seriously, this is horrible. If they are going to do a spin off series just do it, but don't shove it down our throats during Greys. ABC advertised "a Grey's you don't want to miss", well the show is still on and I am sitting at my computer. What does that tell you ABC!


The storylines and the writing of the spin-off appear to be pandering to the Grey's Anatomy demographic in too obvious a manner. The surfer scene was downright laughable. The character development has been rushed in a clumsy way. Some of these actors (Tim Daly, Amy Brenneman, Taye Diggs) are great, but I'd rather see them guesting on Grey's than on this separate show. All around, this show at this stage seems weak. Bring back more Grey's!


I'm not enjoying this spin-off stuff in the least. I find it incredibly annoying and if I didn't love the SGH scenes so much, I'd turn it off completely. It seems to be taking up the whole show! And I don't like the introduction of all these characters and their life stories either. OBNOXIOUS! It better not take off, or I'm going to be pissed.


At the halfway mark now. Not wild about it. Don't like the jumping back and forth. Feel like there's way too much crammed here.


We are hating this spin-off crap. If this actually flies we're going to be irate. There are too many has-been actors in this new episode bringing in all their life stories. We want more George, Izzie, Christina, Callie... and even Burke! Boo ABC!


I know what you mean hafsa what are we going to do without addie on grey's!!!


Can you all say "Jumping the shark?"


seriously i hate this spin-off issue, i personally think its a threat on our dear Grey's. However, the damage has already been done which is just too bad. Merder all the way!!!

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)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
