Patrick Dempsey Would Have Liked a McBaby

at . Comments

When we last saw the doctors of Seattle Grace, Derek and Meredith tied the knot with a Post-It note and gave up their wedding so a dying Izzie could wed Alex instead.

How did that sit with McDreamy?

Patrick Dempsey tells Extra he was shocked when he read the script. "I think the fans are expecting a wedding," the actor said. "I was surprised too, like this is it?"

"This is what it's gonna be?"

Does that mean a bigger Meredith-Derek wedding is still in the works? Don't expect to get any answers to that out of Shonda Rhimes or the Grey's Anatomy cast.

While it is not expected to actually happen, Patrick says that he would have liked to see Ellen Pompeo's pregnancy written into the script for a McDreamy baby!

He added, "I think it would've been interesting to see her juggling a career and baby." Ellen and husband Chris Ivery are expecting their first child this winter.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
