Tim Daly Teases Pete-Addison Romance on Private Practice

at . Comments

She recently slept with Mark and flirted with Sam. He just had a baby with Violet. But might Addison and Pete still become the Private Practice "super couple" soon?

Tim Daly, who plays Pete, offers some intriguing teases about Thursday night's episode, "Love Bites," and beyond in an interview with TV Guide. Excerpts below ...

Q: The undisputed super couple on Grey's Anatomy is Meredith and Derek. Whom would you choose as the Private Practice super couple fans are most rooting for?

A: Interesting question. A year ago, I probably would have said Pete and Addison, and I may just say Pete and Addison again.

Q: You think it’s time they got it on?

A: TV romances take time. If they burn out too quickly there’s no place to go. But the spark between Pete and Addison has a good chance of combusting again.

Q: Perhaps as soon as this Thursday night?


HEAT: How long until the Paddison passion boils over?

A: Let’s just say they have not consummated their relationship yet on the American Broadcasting Corporation. But I’m not saying they won’t.

Q: So can we assume that the hypothetical Pete/Addison love scene is one of those "less is more" scenarios or is it all out there on display?

A: Let me just say that I think the moisture level of the fans will be high.

Q: Addison has obviously slept with both Derek and Mark – and carried on a flirtation with Sam. Does all her doctor playing with associates bother Pete?

A: Oh for God’s sake, Pete can’t be worried about that. Especially not Pete, who has banged receptionists and psychiatrists. Please. It’s a freaking Petri dish on Private Practice. We’re all swimming around in each other’s bodily fluids all the time.

Q: What’s the big medical case in "Love Bites"?

A: It’s funny, oddly topical and definitely creepy. It’s about some teenagers who are living out their Twilight fantasies by pretending to be vampires.

Private Practice Quotes

Charlotte: My mom always says God doesn't give with both hands. You're young, beautiful, brilliant. There has to be something you can't have.
Amelia: Some days I'd give that all up.
Charlotte: That's just the craving talking. The longer you go without a drink...
Amelia: I drank at your wedding. I thought it was ginger ale. I spit it out.
Charlotte: OK, since then?
Amelia: Nothing, but I can't stop thinking about it.
Charlotte: It was an accident. Don't let a slip turn into a fall. Get your butt to a meeting.

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.
