Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Wish You Were Here"

at . Comments

While fans gather in our Wish You Were Here" Round Table include this week's scenes with Denny, Mark and Little Grey, Cristina and Meredith's feud, and George's continued absence ...

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

McCritic: The exchange between Mark and Callie, as they came up with the mission for their self-help group. I especially laughed at Mark saying he had to write down their one rule.

missingBurke: Mark's was heart-to-heart with Callie was great - those two may have the better chemistry, even though Mark's best line - his defenses being worn down by Lexie's nakedness - pertained to a relationship with someone else. Hopefully there's a future for Callie and Mark - if only as BFFs / support group co-founders!

iheartizzie: In an odd choice, I'm taking Alex's various, nonchalant reactions to Izzie's revelations about Denny. Sort of sums up many fans' take on the whole storyline.

2. Will Mark and Lexie sleeping together end badly? Or very badly?

iheartizzie: Very badly. Chyler Leigh is pregnant. Think about it. If they can write in a ghost lover for Izzie, surely the writers can work this real-life event into the plot.

McCritic: Very badly. Lexie is putting on a facade. She may be mind-blowing in bed, as Mark mentioned on more than one occasion, but this gal is all about long-term relationships, not short-term reverse cowboys.

missingBurke: Badly. I actually like these two as a couple, but at some point, they're going to want very different things ... and Derek is going to find out.

3. Who will take the first step toward reconciliation, Meredith or Cristina?

missingBurke: To be honest, I can't recall what exactly they're fighting about, which is actually fairly true to life when it comes to disputes among friends. It would take a Hurculean effort on Cristina's part, but I'd like to see Yang be the one to mend fences.

McCritic: Neither. It looks like the emerging tandem of Derek and Hunt will eventually intervene to bring their significant others back together, if only to make their own lives easier.

iheartizzie: Both are stubborn, but I'm going with Mer. There's less of a Grey area when it comes to expressing her emotions. Cristina wants her person back but doesn't know how to go about it; Mer will put herself out there and extend the olive branch.

4. On an eye-rolling scale of 1-10, rate your reaction to this episode's use of Denny.

McCritic: 12. I was annoyed enough by the simple fact that A GHOST IS THE MOST PROMINENT STORY LINE ON THE SHOW. But now Izzie's admission of her visions has officially taken the edge off of Alex. He doesn't care that she fantasizes about her late true love? Really?!?

iheartizzie: 6. This crap has gone on far too long, but at least they put Denny in a really awkward position, watching Alex go to town on his girl. Perhaps being shown up in such fashion will cause this handsome spirit to simply disappear into the afterlife from whence it came.

missingBurke: 8. I'll suspend reality for the sake of entertainment, but can we move it along? We've known about Izzie's condition for-freaking-ever. Her diagnosis, and what happens after, is the only thing left to watch. Yet it never comes.

5. More in need of a story line: Meredith/Derek or George?

iheartizzie: This season has been lacking on the MerDer front, but that's not necessarily bad... at least one or both are prominently featured on most episodes. George, though? He pretty much hasn't been heard from since passing his intern exam.

missingBurke: This week gave us some solid MerDer strife, which Derek at least confronted at the end. Even if there's not a lot of wild passion in every episode, these two are coming into their own as a couple, I think. As for George, I keep waiting for him to suddenly announce he got an offer from Mercy West that he couldn't refuse.

McCritic: George. I'm glad to see Meredith and Derek finally acting like a normal, boring couple. George O'Malley, however, is probably missing that case of Syphilis right about now. At least it gave him something to do.

Fire Chyler Leigh and give her airtime to our TR.


My wife and I adore George. They better keep him and give him anything he wants or we are not watching anymore. This show cannot afford to lose more viewers. Get rid of Lexie and Mark instead. They are oh so boring.


I love George. He is the ONLY reason I watch this crappy show. No George, no me, not my husband and not my sisters.


OK so the two Mexie fans with the one Burke fans are now joining to bash George. Newsflash guys, George has more fans than Slexiepuke and Burke put together and a lot of us will quit the show if he leaves. Lexie is the one who should go, nobody likes her except you losers. Go away from this board. We love George here.


Personally, I find it hard to believe that sex with Lexie could be mindblowing for a guy like Mark, who - let's face it - has been around quite a lot. I think Mark is lonely and needs someone to care for him. Lexie is a sweet person and she could be the one. I find them cute together and I like that he becomes all flustered around her. I don't remember having seen that before.
Whimpy George could go for all I care.
Callie was hilarious in last weeks episode.


I also don't like George BTW. lol


If George leaves, the show will lose so many viewers, me included. Get rid of Slexiepuke instead. Mark the dirty old man and Lexie the ugly crazy loser.


Gah the two or three Slexiepuke are spamming this board now too. If you want to spam, stop being so obvious about it. TR and Sarta are the two most talented actors on this show. If anyone should leave, it is annoying Lexiepedia. Chyler is so so so bad as an actress and everyone hates her.


OK is the same George hater writing over and over again because all the posts from so-called George haters seem the same, and most are asking for Callie to go too. Let me guess, a threatened Slexiepuke fan. Notice the terribly bad spelling and the child vocabulary. Plus all the names are from people who never posted before. You pathetic loser, trying to get two people to lose their jobs so you can keep your horrid couple.


BYE, BYE, BYE, are so boring!

Grey's Anatomy Season 5 Episode 11 Quotes

Mark: We did good work today.
Callie: If we stay strong...
Mark: Don't get drunk...
Callie: Keep staring at Joe, we'll be fine.

We all get at least one good wish a year. Over the candles on our birthday. Some of us throw in more. On eyelashes, fountains, lucky stars, and every now and then, one of those wishes comes true. So what then? Is it is as good as we'd hoped? Do we bask in the warm glow of our happiness? Or, do we just notice we've got a long list of other wishes waiting to be wished?
