Formal McDreamy
The world of Grey's Anatomy continues to turn in peculiar ways, but Patrick Dempsey is too busy to worry about drama at Seattle Grace.

Between shooting his upcoming film, Made of Honor, and adjusting to life with newborn twins (and his 5-year-old daughter, Talula) at home, this Grey's Anatomy leading man barely has time to change a diaper!

In an interview scheduled to air this evening on Entertainment Tonight, the man we know as McDreamy talks about his hectic family life.

Excerpts from the interview...

On the twins, Darby Galen and Sullivan Patrick:
"They change. I leave in the morning and come back in the evening and they've grown. They're starting to talk and now there's some reaction there. They use their faces and hold their heads up a bit."

On raising his three children:
"The first year is really hard. Come to think of it, the first 18 years are extremely difficult."

On whether he'd let his kids get into show business:
"I think with your kids, whatever their passion is, you give your support. You give them the opportunity to try what they want to try."

On his wedding to Jillian Dempsey:

"It was fun. It was just 30 people back in Maine. We had a great time. We put it together in a week and a half or two weeks, it was really fast... The photographers got really drunk and gave us one picture from the whole experience. But we gave everyone those instamatic cameras, and those were some of the best shots."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Amelia: I think I'm falling in love with Owen Hunt, and I'm really afraid that it's gonna destroy me.
Derek: It wouldn't be love if it didn't.

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
