Round Table: "There's No 'I' in Team"

by at . Comments

While fans gather in our There's No 'I' in Team" include memorable quotes, Mer-Der, George-Lexie, Callie-Erica, and Izzie-Alex drama ...

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?

McCritic: When Izzie said to Alex: "I care about you, and I'm not gonna go crazy, and I'm not gonna try to kill myself and I'm not gonna stop caring about you no matter how hard you push me away." I'm sorry. Didn't Izzie already go crazy when she broke up George's marriage to Callie?

missingBurke: Izzie's Good Will Hunting-esque "I care about you, I care about you, I care about you ..." That scene was really powerful and I like them together.

iheartizzie: After his intern referred to him as O'Malley and leaves, I loved George's meek reply (to no one in particular), "He probably should say Doctor O'Malley." Vintage George. As for whether Lexie going off on him was warranted, see next question.

Locker Room Action

2. Is Dr. O'Malley really a jerk or was Lexie out of line?

iheartizzie: George is unbelievably clueless if he can't pick up her signals, and why he didn't explain to her that he didn't ask for any interns is beyond me. But he's no jerk. As a venerable Lexipedia, young Grey should know that you have to be particularly overt with George or he won't take a hint. You can't get mad at O'Malley for being O'Malley.

McCritic: With Meredith maturing, I guess the show needed one Grey sister to enter Irrational Land. Lexie was very much out of line. And would you even wanna be an intern for the man you're in love with? Might lead to seriously - seriously! - awkward situations.

missingBurke: I'm with Lexie. It's one thing to not realize someone has feelings for you, but ignoring the poor girl is quite another. He made her feel invisible.

3. Was Derek ungrateful to Meredith or did he have a point?

missingBurke: I liked this story line because they both had good points. Derek should have been sensitive to how Meredith would react, but in his mind he is the attending and that's pretty much it. He can be stubborn sometimes, but as usual, McDreamy came around having thought it over a little.

McCritic: Meredith went too far when she referenced the "Shepherd-Grey" method. She already has a show named after her. Isn't that enough?

iheartizzie: Derek is the attending, sure, but since it wasn't even his idea to do the clinical trial, that argument is weak. Fortunately, Bailey talked some sense into Derek and - ever the romantic - he made amends with the timeless gift of a diseased kidney.

4. Will Callie and Erica last or fizzle out?

McCritic: I'm fully aboard the Horres bandwagon! While skeptical of the sudden lesbian angle at first, the show has handled this relationship in a realistic manner.

iheartizzie: The unfamiliar terrain makes this difficult to handicap. A lot may depend on the effectiveness of the famed Sloan method. The man's a genius, after all.

missingBurke: Callie has more chemistry with Mark. I see these casual lovers turned BFFs ending up together.

5. Is it too late for Izzie and Alex?

iheartizzie: No. They've had great chemistry from the start, and the way they're growing closer - or appear to be - makes a lot of sense, and the pacing feels just right.

missingBurke: No. They may still have a future as a couple. But it is too late for Alex to be Izzie's soulmate, as Denny wrapped up that title years ago.

McCritic: Yes. If only because there's no coherent nickname for these two. Azzie? Ilex? Nothing works.

Wow, lots of hate to Alex and Izzie... First of all, I'd like to please stop calling Alex abusive because he's not. He's confused and damaged and doesn't know better. He and Izzie have an unbelievable amount of chemestry and at the end, if anyone gets Alex, it's Izzie. Their relationship is not abusive, it's deeper. Alex has always been there for Izzie and Izzie for Alex even though he can be evil to her and know that someone loves him unconditionally. That's all he needs. The only time that I've seen Alex through a different light has been in the season 4 finale when Alex called Izzie a "stupid bitch" but it was just a random insult. But if that is abusive, let's call Derek abusive too since he called Meredith a "whore" and Addison "satan". As for Meredith and Derek, I don't think Derek was ungrateful or a jerk more than he was naive. Men are stupid sometimes and I HATE to agree to Mark (since I'm a woman after all) that sometimes women overthink everything. Or at least I do. I'm a mess. But I believe that Meredith didn't want to be recognized totally by the magazine or article more than she wanted to be recognized by Derek. Plus, we don't know who actually wrote the article. If it was him, he probably would've mention that it was Meredith's idea which prompts me to believe he didn't write it. If she had been recognized she'd still be wondering if she was because she's Ellis Grey's daughter. Meredith likes to have her parade rained on. I think this way was better. As for George, calling him a jerk doesn't necesarily mean he is one. He had it coming and I'm glad that Lexie came out will her feelings because somebody needed to slap George for him to even remotely notice her. I was all Team Lexie on that scene. George is confused by all the latest turmoil of his test and adapting to redoing his internship and becoming a resident one day to another. He gets to be confused but not that ignorant. I don't know, George is failing to be the guy that I laughed and enjoy in the first two seasons. Ramble over. That was long...

anaminusthan3greys, where you read this spoiler about callica and the new intern? is this true or just speculation?

My fave quote would just have to be Yang asking Mer if an intern was clean bc she wanted to McDo him! lol O'Malley isn't a jerk. He just doesn't read between the lines! Callie had to write her number on his hand to make sure he got the oh-so-very-subtle-hint. Derek was super ungrateful to Meredith. It was like the whole Burke and his award all over again. I just kept waiting for Mer to start singing "like a virgin." I don't think her name needed to be on the method name thingy, since it could easily be confused with Ellis Grey's skin something special method (from season 1 or 2?). But like Burke, Derek should've mentioned her name several times in that article. From the begginning, her name should show up!
interviewer: "How did you come across the idea Dr. Shepherd?"
Derek: "oh, my girlfriend, Dr. Meredith Grey came to me with the idea after we were presented with an inoperable brain tumor." The whole Callica thing isn't gonna last for a long time. Me got some SPOILER!!!!!! A new intern is gonna show up and she was asked to be confortable doing girl on girl!!! So Callica is going to have some rockier times...sex isn't everything, it's just one of the rocks along the path. I love the whole thing with Izzie and Alex...maybe for a nickname we should take their last names...like KaTevens...nah...Karevens...oh Karevie??? who knows!? I've personally known they were meant to be together long before Denny showed up. I got my confirmation when he carried her out of Denny's room. So, I got a question for Shonda!!! What about Sloan?! I mean we've been hinted since he first showed up that the man's got feelings. But we don't ever see anyone special for him! Will he have someone special for him??? Where is his Dirty Mistress soulmate?!

First of all, who cares if people comment more than once?! People do it all the time. And I have yet to see anyone post twice in this thread. Second of all, who died and made you the Comment God?!

I have never forgotten the scene when Alex picked up Izzie off the bed when Denny died and held her in his arms while she sobbed. That was one of the most powerful scenes of Grey's ever and I think a lot of people have forgotten that. I was also a Gizzie fan but I think they were meant to be just friends that's it and when they got more . .it got a little weird. But Alex has always been the for Izzie in times when she needed him them most, just like Izzie was there for Alex when Ava went crazy. Alex will always push people away, that's his nature and Izzie likes to take care of people, that's her nature. So take a nuturer and someone who puts up wall, can't you see why they would be perfect for each other? That's just my oppinion . . .

Can people please stop saying Alex is abusive? It's disturbing to think about, because its wrong. I don't understand the reasoning at all. He has been through horrible, horrible things, things that he can't help and he can't get over without assistance. I know he says hurtful things to Izzie, but she knows him, and they understand each other. Obviously, its not an excuse for him completely, but I man cut the guy some slack. Izzie gets him. She doesnt think he's abusive. Because he's not. He's dealing with things that he doesn't understand, and that's not his fault, and believe it or not, I praise the show for creating a character like him because there are hundreds of people that go through the same things, like myself, and are misundertstood. Izzie can help him, she can be his friend, if he will let her. I agree Alex does have a lot of growing up to do, but he's not abusive. If you think that shonda and betsy would create something like that, you are seriously mistaken.

I TOTALLY AGREE TO YOU, LORELAI

i love izzie and alex. perhaps because i come from a rough background as alex and i've made mistakes in life as he has because past has been too overwhelming to bear. and i've hurt people i've loved as well.so i understand him in a way and do not condemn him like most of you do. not everyone comes from perfect families, not everyone has had a perfect childhood, not everyone has been loved as they deserve to be loved. i root for izzie and alex because they are soulmates drawn together not by perfect love and affection but by love that gradually grows from something most people wouldn;t understand. izzie and alex falling in love and letting go of their past and insecurities is like watching a flower blossom from the ashes of a battlefield. i think it is the most beautiful love story that can be told..and i find it perfectly coherent to what happened in the first and second season: they were first brought together by physical passion but the first time around they were too much binded to the past to let the insecurities go and allow themselves to fall in love. time has passed and both of them have grown. i think we will see a different izzie and alex later this season, not the kind to just have sex in the closet (though i admit, they have crazy chemistry:)
