Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Suicide is Painless"

by at . Comments

Welcome to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table, in which our esteemed panelists discuss hot topics and some burning questions from Thursday's episode.

Topics for our "Suicide is Painless" Round Table include memorable Grey's Anatomy quotes, Owen's past and future, Richard and Arizona incongruences and more ...

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

M.L. House: Cristina: "Owen, what are you thinking?" Owen: "Nothing. Go to bed." I like this simple exchange because it profoundly illustrates how damaged Hunt is.

Mrs. Northman: Richard: "If I wasn't happily married, I'd hit her, I'd hit her hard. How great is watching the Chief try to fit in?! Next thing you know, he'll be gettin' jiggy with it!"

L.J. Gibbs: Mark: "Oh come on don't talk locker room talk in front of the coach." Chief: "I'm not the coach anymore, I'm a player. I take a shower like everyone else." LOL, right.

2. Owen flashbacks: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler?

L.J. Gibbs: I thought it was an outstanding Owen-centric episode in that it actually tied in his past relationship with Teddy, his traumatic time at war, and the current case. If you're going to do flashbacks, that's how you do it - it was entirely not filler.

Mrs. Northman: Interesting insight. Wish they gave flashback for everyone - not just Owen!

M.L. House: I don't know if I like this recent trend toward character-specific episodes, but let's face it, Kevin McKidd was and is very good, so no complaints from me.

3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kids, or Richard as one of the guys?

Mrs. Northman: Arizona not wanting kids! She is great with them - fights for them to be alive and at the end of the day would rather shoot herself than have one of her own? That's just weird.

M.L. House: Richard trying to be one of the fellas. What a hilarious, ridiculous man. I loved this bit, it was reminiscent of the camping trip from the old days.

L.J. Gibbs: I love me some Calzona, and not just because they're both attractive women, or form a couple name that's one letter away from my favorite food. So it breaks my heart when they argue. It also breaks my heart to think Callie's dad might not have a grandson after he came around during his last visit! Come on, Arizona. Maybe in a few years? Please reconsider.

4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy?

M.L. House: I may be burned at the stake for saying it, but I actually think Owen and Teddy are extremely compatible and they certainly have a bond that's not purely sex-based. Does that necessarily mean they'll get together? Another story, but the connection is there.

Mrs. Northman: I think so! The reason why we all love Grey's so much is because of the drama!

L.J. Gibbs: I love Owen and Cristina, so I hope not ... but let me throw this out there. If Teddy and Owen were to hook up, there's always Jackson. Just saying ...

Crowen Style

Do troubled times await these lovebirds?

5. Will you miss Izzie?

L.J. Gibbs: What I won't miss is the drama surrounding Katherine Heigl. What I will, and do miss are the old days, of which she was a big part. Grey's Anatomy is still an excellent show, don't get me wrong, but the days of the "Fab Five" seem a distant memory.

M.L. House: Let it go. I did a year ago.

Mrs. Northman: A bit, but not really. There are so many characters on the show to keep up with and I think Alex is much better off without her.

What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Mer's marital/ surgery squabble with her post it husband: 'He stole my surgery! Owen flashback: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler?
Ok for this episode only. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kid, or Richard as one of the guys?
Webber is a fish out of water trying to be one of the guys. But is he still married to Adele? Cos I'm confused. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy?
I'm half expecting this to happen, cos he has feelings for Teddy. Teddy isn't over Owen at all, despite the involvement with Mark. A few broken hearts on their way here. Will you miss Izzie?
For Alex's sake I hope they end Izzies story. Let Alex confirm he's got a divorce. Avery is Izzie's replacement

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy Quote for the episode? Patient's husband: I'm scared. (not that special, but my cue to cry)
I also liked Mark and Teddy's "you wanna talk about it?" "no" (words can be very overrated) and Owen's opening/closingspeech: "dying isn't easy" "living is better then dying... untill it's not". 2. Owen flashback: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler? Interesting! 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kid, or Richard as one of the guys? Richard as one of the guys. I totally get Arizona. 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy? Don't know. At the moment I think he won't (even if he'd want to, I think Teddy wouldn't go with it - how cool would that be?). 5. Will you miss Izzie? Not really, there are a lot of other characters to love. I liked Izzie (except when she was all about George) but she's been the leading lady for so many episodes; I like it that the other ones can shine for a change!

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy Quote for the episode? Richard: If I wasn't happily married,I'd hit her, I'd hit her hard.
Alex: Sir, I think you wanted to say is, I'd hit that.
Bailey: I don't think you wanted to say that, at all! 2. Owen flashback: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler? Very interesting, it's nice to see what Owen has been experiencing in the past. 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kid, or Richard as one of the guys? Richard as one of the guys! I'm not very used to seeing it XD 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy? I definitely hope not. It's so typical and cliché! And I love Owenstina! 5. Will you miss Izzie? I miss the Izzie who is almost dying on the hospital bed. I seem to like her more when she was sick. No offence!

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Definitely Jackson's "Whoville" speech to Meredith. I love that guy. 2. Owen flashbacks: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler? I thought they were fantastic, but I wish they would give all the characters that same chance. I mean, we're just now getting to Alex's story and it's been 6 years. That's a little irritating, and I'm not even an Alex fan. If they're going to do character-centric episodes, everyone should get one. 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kids, or Richard as one of the guys? It's harder to see Richard as one of the guys. It's believable to see him trying to fit in, but he'll always be the Chief. Like Mark said, it's a sign of respect. Arizona not wanting kids is completely understandable, but that doesn't make it any less heartbreaking. 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy? I hope not. I like Owen, but I'm right next to Meredith on Team Cristina. If he is going to go for Teddy, I hope he's a decent enough guy to end things with Cristina first. The cheating storyline is getting old. 5. Will you miss Izzie? I miss the old Izzie. Pre-George/Izzie, Izzie. But I haven't missed her at all this season, so her disappearing isn't really a big deal. It will be interesting to see how the writers handle it though.

1.What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?
Chief "If I wasn't happily married I'd hit her I'd hit her hard" ROFLOL! 2. Owen flashbacks: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler? Unecessary filler becasue I didn't grow to love owen and I still don't care about him. I did like the relationships he grew but still meh 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kids, or Richard as one of the guys? Tough one um Arizona not wanting kids because of her happy bubbly persona 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy? So overdone with GA (Mer/Der @ prom,*shudder* GIZZIE!,Alex/Lexie) and the list goes on but really that would be too predictable.Based on Christina's priorties in life I would expect her to break up with Owen and then Owen going with Teddy @ the end of season (I don't care about this couple) 5. Will you miss Izzie? Yes! She was an integral part of the Fab 5 and her going like that with no closure wasn't fair. But I understand KH's priorites in her life so I'll learn to be ok with it. I just hope she comes back one more time before the series ends. I think Alex will be fine by himself for a while and focus on being a peds surgeon (JUST NO MORE ALEX/LEXIE please!)

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? No specific quote 2. Owen flashbacks: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler? I like them. I felt like I was going to cry at the end, when he removed his hands from Dan and when the flashbacks appeared when he was doing push-ups. I hope he can go back to what he used to be before the attack. 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kids, or Richard as one of the guys? I get why Arizona doesn't want kids. She's a peds surgeon, she knows what horrible things can happent to them. She doesn't want to see her own kids experience what the kids in the hospital have to 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy? Hope not, thought I can feel that he will. Cristina is too good is be cheated on. I don't hate Teddy, but I will puke if he cheats on cristina with Teddy. Seriously. 5. Will you miss Izzie? Not really.

My quotes are :
The speech that Webber does to Derek .In this i saw that now that Derek returns to surgery ,because i seems that he choices ,wants and he has ,but Mer is too much submissive in this it compares.It seems that it decides all Derek ,it seems me egoism,me well and good Mer acts out of self-interest more to the relationship with him that he to the realationship with her.He says favoritism, but if never nothing for her,Cri does as it wants to,Hunt has led she has dispsition a cardio-surgeon for her.I think now Shonda ,see that Webber is good and April goes away because Webber don't need her, does to return the old chief and Derek it's time that he devotes a little while relationship with Mer and surgery. I see Derek egoist and i don't like ,because in a relationship you give and you take to just the same time and no with...he stole my surgery!!!!!!!!!!!
Jackson and Mer beautiful alchemy togheter...Whoville ,sings Cindi lou

I love Izzie, but I am NOT sad to see her leave. I hate the fact that they did SOO much for her character--like let her LIVE--and now Katherine thinks she can do better somewhere else. I know the writers didn't know this was going to play out like this but it sucks that George died & Izzie-WITH CANCER-lived. but that's me just dwelling in the past. :(
I hope one day maybe she will do a cameo, just like I'm stilling hoping for Burke to reappear. :(

Awesome episode, very intense but there are some funny stuff there. Like the when Webber said "hit her hard" and Alex's "hit that", so cute...he's just trying to fit in. Then there's that scene between he and Derek, before that scene came on I was thinking why did the Chief seemed not so busy like Derek. Then he has a someone who forges his signature...cool. This episode shed a light on a lot of stuff about Owen, too bad he won't open up to Christina. I don't want an Owen-Teddy hookup, don't do that. I don't know but I don't like Teddy, it's like when Addison came on the picture with Derek and Meredith. Meredith really is all fixed...she could have gotten mad and sulk because Derek stole her surgery after she came to him and bragged how she diagnosed the tumor. I love how she and Jackson get each other and she listened to him about Whoville. Great episode. Who will get pregnant on the finale? My bet is Lexie. Can't be Mer, that'd just be too perfect. It can also be Callie probably an act of defiance because Arizona doesn't want kids, maybe Teddy with Mark or Christina...just to freak Owen more. But I think it's Lexie. I won't miss Katherine Heigl at all. However, the interview kind of made me like her a little...with the whole mom thing and how she knew that dropping out of that Emmy race in 2008 and the long hours comment in Letterman will make a lot people not like her. And the Fab Five is missed...Mer, Christina, Alex, George and Izzie. But really, after TR Knight left...it made sense that Heigl left. She was all against Isaiah Washington and obviously took Knight's side. Next episode, excited. Next week new?

Best quote and one of the best moments, Jackson saying to Meredith : "Well, the key is to think of yourself as one of the whos in Whoville (...)you're gonna go in that surgery and you're gonna sing. Sing Cindy Lou, sing !"
These two have great chemistry. And I like the optimistic Jackson.

Dying isn't easy - the body was designed to stay alive - thick skulls, strong hearts, keen senses. When the body starts to fail, the medicine takes over.
