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.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy Quote for the episode? I can't remember the exact words, but I liked what Mark told Richard when he saw him eat alone. 2. Owen flashback: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler? Certainly interesting and well played by McKidd, Raver, and all the guest stars, especially the actor playing Dan. 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kids, or Richard as one of the guys? Richard as one of the guys. I know a married pediatric surgeon (not a lesbian by the way) who made the same choice. 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy? It would be very cheap and disappointing if they let this happen.
This storyline is interesting as long as we can follow Owen and Cristina cope with his PTSD and with her emotional problems.
The point of no return for their story was for me seeing Cristina hug Owen after he had tried to kill her and seeing them make love for the first time on that same day. It's true his war memories, and his bond with Teddy are powerful, but his bond with Cristina is also very real and deep, and has grown into a committed relationship. 5. Will you miss Izzie? No.

Lexii

Wait...
1. Two quotes I love!
Second one is: (I do not remember the exact words D:) "Are you breaking up with me? Is it Mark? Are you sleeping with your old sex buddy? Are you one of those fake lesbians taking a va-va-vacation in lesbian land?"
:D I love that.

Lexii

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy Quote for the episode? "If I wasn't married, I'd hit her. I'd hit her hard."
That had me laughing on the floor! 2. Owen flashback: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler? A little of both. It was more interesting. Kevin did a great job with it. My mouth was wide open when the helicopter came, after he let his friend die. Like, literally after a few seconds. D: 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kids, or Richard as one of the guys? Well, not everyone wants kids. Arizona is around kids everyday so I thought she would want kids. Richard as one of the guys? He's a little too old. Sorry. D: But it's really hard for me to see him being one of the guys, the players, as they said in the episode, because he was the boss for all the seasons. He can't automatically be called one of the guys. It's hard to adjust. 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy?
Hate to say it, but, yeah I think so. The bond between them seems so... unbreakable. There's a real friendship and something.
But like L.J. Gibbs says, "... There's always Jackson." xD 5. Will you miss Izzie? I will because I hate Alex and Lexie. D: But for anything else, no.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?
I dont really have one from last night. I like the one about the coach but not enough to say it was a favorite. 2. Owen flashbacks: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler?
It was ok. Now I am more concerned since I think Owen is realizing he really, really likes Teddy. For a moment there I thought he still have his friends ring to give to Teddy. 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kids, or Richard as one of the guys? I can understand why a person like Arizona, she is always around parents suffering for their kids so why would she want that for herself, not that I am one of those, but...I can see some small percentage that might feel the same as her. What I really like was the chief trying to fit in. 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy? I used to like Owen and Christina a lot but right now I am to the point that it does not matter if he chooses Teddy. I am not totally convinced she is truly in love with him either. Lets face it the "silly" kiss with Jax, trading Owen with Teddy for a surgery. I mean I know she is hard core and all, but that just shows me that her priorities are not the ones of a person truly in love. 5. Will you miss Izzie?
I have been saying this for a while, go away Izzie (not KH) I have not missed her at all!

1) Best quote of this episode? The ep title reference! (Have not been able to get the M*A*S*H series theme outta my head for hours now, thanks to the that title nod) 2) I am biased -- but the rest of the characters in this series mostly seem goofy to me, so the Owen storyline is very overdue! Very interested to see more of how he deals with his PTSD 3) Arizona -- sorry, but her sudden aversion to kids seems goofball and drama just for drama's sake. 4) Owen had better not! I'll be a very disappointed viewer! 5) Nope. Bye bye, Izzy, wise choice to move on. Right now, Richard, Owen & Christina are the only non-cornball storylines right now.

I thought the whole PTSD storyline for Owen and Christina was to show them dealing with it as a couple! What a diservice and disgrace to every veteran and their families if you have Owen cheat on Christina just for the sake of drama and ratings!!!
Please portray this storyline realistically for us. Day to day living is hard enough. Help us tell the real story!

1. Unfortuanlly didn't like any of the quotes from this episode they all were bland. 2.Interesting, but I wish they would've given us insight on him slowly and little by little, not all in one episode. 3. Neither, I believe both. Arizona not wanting kids I get it, and Richard fitting in I get it too. So I believe both. 4.Yes I think they are so going to cheat and that will be the so call "game changer" for the season finale that Shonda referred to on twitter for Owen and Teddy. 5. No I don't miss Izzie, I stopped missing her months ago.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Jackson and Meredith Whoville. I love the friendship of those two. I hope it will continue. And Richard in the O.R 'If I wasn't married, I'd hit her, I'd hit her hard' LOL. Hilarous! 2. Owen flashbacks: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler? I enjoyed the flashbacks! Mckidd did a great job. 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kids, or Richard as one of the guys? Arizona not wanting kids. She's great with them, she's all bright and shiny and happy. 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy? I really hope not. I love C/O but I think he is going to try something! From what I saw last night, he felt something for Teddy back in Iraq. [And from Shonds spoilers Meredith is going to go all badass on Owen because of Cristina], so it is about something.. hmm! 5. Will you miss Izzie? HELL NO!!

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Jackson's Whoville/Cindy Lou pep talk to Meredith. It's nice to know that one MW got another SGH back. 2. Owen flashbacks: Interesting insight, or unnecessary filler? Unnecessary filler. There are other characters that need more developing than Hunt at this moment. Wasn't really feeling it. 3. Harder to believe: Arizona not wanting kids, or Richard as one of the guys? I known some people that work with kids and don't want kids, so it isn't that hard to believe and Richard trying to be one of the guys is just funny and more believable. I'm making this decision on heartbreaking and that is Arizona not wanting kids. 4. Will Owen cheat on Cristina with Teddy? You know he will. It's just a time bomb. What will be interesting to see is how Cristina is going to continue working for Teddy while knowing this. 5. Will you miss Izzie? Not at all. Not Izzie, not KH and her drama. Been waiting for this moment since S4.

Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Episode 18 Quotes

Surgeons are arrogant enough to think - there is no one we can't save.

Owen

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.
