What song is during the fight scene btwn izzie and callie? i simply MUST know!
If you figure it out, or know already please message me: caseylikewaffles@aol.com


In my opinion the way the Cheif handled his niece, it was the best way he knew how. She is an adult. If she wants to give up, if she doesn't want to go through the pain- if she just wants to live her life the best way she can until the day God takes her home, that's all that matters. His wife is being incredibly selfish and if that was her reasoning to leave him behind, she's being even MORE selfish. I feel sorry for the Chief this time. He was being the only selfless person in that scenario!


And again, there didn't happen a lot during this episode, except the Callie/Gizzie thing...
The MerDer situations are always a bit the same: they have a conversation, Derek says things, Mer has tears in her eyes and doesn't reply,...
BUT I loved it when Derek said 'I wanna marry you ' :D


i love alex. He' s such a character. I never know what he really feels. Hope he and izzie hook up again, after all this George and upcomin Ava thing. They would be much more interesting story, close to merder.


omg...Gizzie is so cool! i really want to see those two together for a long time. if u really look back you can see how much they have been already "a couple". He cares so dearly for Izzie and Izzie has always been there to support George no matter what! Aren't they just cute? so..hopefully they can get over this rough patch and get on with their relationship! i wanna is it grow!


I'm not much of a banndwagoner with Gizzie. I think that Izzie should hook up with Alex and George with Lexie. Sara did some awesome acting during the episode, though. All in all, I thought the episode was good but slightly predictable in terms of what was happening with the characters and such. All hail Derek + Meredith fans :D
Can't wait until the next episode. hehe


Right now, Gizzie is the one reason I watch. I do know they cannot be togetehr right away but I do wish the show would pick up speed on this story. Yes george loves Callie but he is in love with izzie and she is in love with him and they should be together. Could we have had one scene where he told Izzie he loved her? I am getting tired of waiting.


No they do not need to drop Gizzie, in fact, I want them together more than ever. Their love is obviously real and while it may not be easy, I do want them to fight for it. Alex was not being honest, Alex was having his huge ego wounded by the fact Izzie never loved him at all ahd she is totally in love with george. He never got why Callie and Olivia loved him either. Maybe because despite the affair, George is actually a sweet, wonderful, caring guy not an ego-centric ass like Alex.


Indeed, I also miss Addie (and Burke). They were great.
Can somebody put it on fanpop or something.. Can't wait to see the episode ( as a not american)


Grey's is much better without Addison!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.


Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.

Alex (narrating)
