Private Practice Season Premiere Recap: "A Death in the Family"

at . Comments

Private Practice kicked off its third season last night with a typical Shonda Rhimes made-for-fake-spoilers moment: A somber Pete standing over a coffin being buried.

Oh, but it was just a flashback to when Pete's wife died. Shonda is lame. But said flashbacks did tell the back story of Pete and Violet and made for a strong episode.

Private Practice picked up where we left off last season, with Violet's baby having been stolen, and her bleeding on the floor. Sick. She was discovered shortly after.

Did she live? Yes. We knew that going in. But how she got there and the back stories told made for a wild ride. Follow the link for a recap of "A Death in the Family."

Violet in Trouble

Here are some the top Private Practice quotes from the emotional episode ...

Addison: I can save them both, Na, I can save them both! | permalink
Dell: I am 25-year-old single father. How am I going to deal with all this?
Cooper: You just love her. | permalink
Pete: [to Violet] My wife died and all ... all I could think was that I can breathe again. | permalink
Violet: You asked me what kind of man I am? I think you're a man that married the wrong person.
Pete: Maybe SHE married the wrong person. Maybe I'm not cut out for all this.
Violet: You're a good man. And in time you'll find someone. You'll love someone.
Pete: I hope so. | permalink
Pete: Violet lives. Save Violet. That is the goal here. | permalink

Private Practice Quotes

A lot of men have a joy of seeing me naked. A lot! Well, not a lot... I mean.. 8, Well... 11.


You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.
