Tyne Daly Cast as Derek's Mother

by at . Comments

Here's a minor Grey's Anatomy spoiler / casting note in case you haven't heard about it yet - for the January 15 episode, "Sympathy for the Devil," Tyne Daly (Judging Amy, Cagney and Lacey) has been cast as Derek's mother! Wonder how that will go ...

Tyne Daly

In the episode, the mother of Derek (Patrick Dempsey) will meet Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) for the first time. Will this lead to some Mer-Der drama, which has been lacking? Elsewhere, Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) go on their first real date.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Just because we can live without something, it doesn't mean we have to.

Meredith

Derek: I am calling post-it, Zola, Bailey, the tumors on the wall, ferryboat scrub caps. I thought D.C. was everything. I was wrong. You... you're everything. I love you and I'm not going to stop loving you. I can't live without you. I don't want to live without you, and I'm going to do everything in my power to prove it.
Meredith: I can live without you, but I don't want to. I don't ever want to.
