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.

I COMPLETELY agree with "kare'" shonda never ceases to DISappoint. there's so much that she could be doing with the material that she ISNT. and the show has been lacking, the ratings prove it. she needs to give the fans some more material to work with.


He knows exactly what we want, another reason to love Patrick.

that would be steve


To those who thought the wedding was a let-down, I actually thought it was really sweet and to me, thats much more intimate and special than a lot of todays excessive, generic weddings.
Oh and, did anyone notice the suit the intern behind Derek in the photo? I can't remember his name but I am loving the plaid.


I definitely agree with anuflas. The reason I'm so pissed with Shonda is not because she doesn't give us what we want really, but becuase she is so dismissive about all of this. "Fans are going to have to comes to terms with it." All that is a thiny-veiled, 'suck up and deal with it.' And it makes the fans feel unappreciated. While yes she is a genius for coming up with the show in the first place, it would be nowhere without the fans. And now we're just be told to suck it up. Like it doesn't really matter what we think or want. But it does because if she keeps screwing with things, I would be just as content not to watch. Patrick Dempsey, you are amazing. He is always so in tune with what the fans want and like. I'm so glad that he's stood up to Shonda & Co. and said what he wants to do. This man should be Exec. producer.


Ane, In defense of some fans, MerDer don't want a wedding, they just want a legally recognized marriage. I personally found the post it vows to be their 'spiritual wedding' (kinda like the religious ceremony if you believe in anything) but nothing else. That should be enough, true but it isn't. I want that stupid piece of paper signed. No one expected Mer to walk down that aisle (if she did, THAT would've been a shocker) or to have the big church wedding, we all knew that. We all knew that Izzie was going to be at the end walking that aisle. The only thing that we are asking, is for a LEGAL wedding. I am already seeing Mer in a gurney and Derek not being able to have a say because he does't have legal rights. THAT is the problem, not the whole wedding stuff. I want to see the McBaby to give them a storyline. I can't wait to see Mer deal with being a third year resident, about to choose her specialty and becoming the mother that Ellis couldn't be. As well as Derek pacing all over. It'd be amazing! I agree with you on the Shonda thing. Sometimes Shonda is judged unfairly here but I do hope that she'll eventually see that it does matter. I stop being judgemental to her after I read the S.4 finale blog. The woman is a genious.


I know Meredith isn't the type for a real wedding. I couldn't see her in a big poofy wedding dress and in a church and all. But they could SOME HOW have married Meredith and Derek for real. ya know? maybe a small wedding, not in a church. A really simple dress. and the friends there. that would have been nice. nothing BIG. just something small and Meredith-like. the Post-it scene was ADORABLE though. I really liked it :)


it would've been cool to have had a mcbaby. it would've given the show something more. i would've liked to see merder juggle the pregnancy and the baby.


I totally agree with Ane.
The show would be nearly as great if we got what we wanted!


I want a real wedding,it can be simple but please we fans deserve a wedding. Mer wants to marry Der so whats the problem.I also wanted a Mcbaby and am very disappointed about that. So please give us the dam wedding.


Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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)

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.
