I miss Addison on the show. We need more supporting characters and there is a void which I dont think Mark Sloane can fill with all the extra airtime. The Yang/Derek story and the Izzie- Callie story were the highlights. Izzie has been an all time fav and Callie my least fav. But this episode belonged to Sara and I was actually rooting for her. They need to drop Gizzie asap as I hate the fact they have turned Izzie into the Other Woman after her character growth in S3. I know a lot of people had problems with S3 but I thought it was quite good. S4 is a little lackluster if you ask me.


See I personally love all the characters because we've either actually seen/heard or have been given hints about their pasts and where all of them are coming from and how they all got to be who they are. But sometimes I hate how the characters act because they go too far (which I know is life but I don't like it real life either, understand it yes, like it no) and right now that is so George and Izzie. Alex's "mean" statement was in a way the truth. George while he is so adorable and vunerable is being acting like a little child lately. And Izzie, who I love for all her cute quirkiness, has recently crossed over into on-the-verge-of-mental-insanity land. They both need to get their heads back on straight and act like adults, and this needs to happen regardless of whether or not they end up as a couple. And I felt like this episode really showcased that fact. So, of course, I totally loved it!


Why do we need to know about Sandra's Divorce?
Why is it important to know about the negative things that are going on in other people's life will it make those two individuals feel better knowing that the entire world knows there business I am a child of divorce and I hate it that my parents don't get along and I certainly don't want my family affairs blasted all over the internet I think that there should be some type of law banning this sort of information when it comes to celebraties and there personal life just a thought


I thought everyone's reactions on the show were exactly how they should be. Callie shouldn't forgive Izzy - everything Callie said to Izzy is right on the money. I also agree with Alex - Izzy confided in the one person that put his heart out for her after Denny died - Izzy couldn't expect Alex to be kind to her. But I did like that the confrontation with Alex made Izzy seem strong again. Some viewers want Izzy and George together right away, but there are a lot of problems that need to be worked out. George is still married - and he obviously still cares about Callie even if he did say he loved Izzy. Oh and I loved Alex's line "maybe they decided what they were going to fight over wasn't worth it"... I love George but BURN!


ok, letme start by saying...Why can't George and Izzie be together already?! It's been 3 eps since George confessed his love for Izzie already and the suspence is killing me! i mean...in this episode it started off with Callie forgiving George and a frantic George looking for Izzie to report the bad news! i admit that scene was so funny, with him running around the hospital like a worried puppy. But really...C'mon already, Callie pls just divorce George and let Gizzie work!!
i did like the part when izzie thought she was about the fight callie in the cafeteria! so hilarious...don't you just feel the looneyness and over emotional drive izzie has! Thats Love baby!
Then, who else can't stand Alex?! why does he have to always bad mouth George or strip him from any form of happiness! Alex is such a Meany and definately turning into McEvilspawn again. izzie told him her secret and he turns the cold shoulder and practically scolded her n made her feel so guilty and horrid! Even Callie with her "speech" about izzie stealing something from her and being a "bitch", come on give Izzie a break already! i know what she did was wrong...but you can't choose who you love sometimes! and that just made Izzie realize her big mistake and tat screwed her up big time! now she is all weepy and sad about being with George cause of the Guilt Callie n Alex gave her!!
The part when george and callie were in the rain talking i thought was really touching, as in you can see the true colors of their relationship, and they reached a realization that something is not right!!
I was disappointed that there wasn't a "romantic" Gizzie moment this episode! its getting to become ugly and miserable...But i always love seeing those two together. :)
Hopefully, the next episode won't be so hard on the two lovebirds! argh...callie is gonna tell the whole hospital, and thats not a good sign! George needs to Tell izzie and the rest of the world how he truly feels! Enough with the constant breaking of hearts already...I want Gizzie to live happily ever after...*don't we all?*


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


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."
