Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Hook, Line and Sinner"

by at . Comments

Welcome to TV Fanatic's Grey's Anatomy Round Table, in which our illustrious panel discusses hot topics and burning questions from last night and beyond.

Topics for our "Hook, Line and Sinner" Round Table Q&A include memorable Grey's Anatomy quotes, Calzona's future, Derek's decision, April's role and more ...

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

L.J. Gibbs: I loved Derek's response to Mark lamenting that he's losing his child: "Sloane's your child. You're not going to lose her." Rather than tell him he was being ridiculous or overreactive, Derek cut straight to what really mattered.

M.L. House: Three-way short, simple tie: "I'm a cardiothoracic whore." - Yang. "Learn how to fish yourself." - Richard. "I shave my legs ... sometimes." - Mer.

Mrs. Northman: Derek: "I can't staff this office because she is Hunt's friend and your flavor of the month. I think Derek is making a fine chief. I am happy that his first choice wasn't Teddy and was the better choice for the hospital."

2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision?

L.J. Gibbs: When Mark said she's a good kid with good instincts, audible laughter emenated from our sofa. That pretty much sums it up ... adoption can be a good thing.

M.L. House: Yes, although it was interesting that they did this story line because I actually know adoptive parents-to-be who this recently happened to - the birth parent changed her mind in that 48-hour window. Doesn't that seem unfair?

Mrs. Northman: I am having a hard time with this one. Much as I believe that the adoptive parents would be the most rational and responsible choice - I also believe that there is nothing in this world like the bond between a biological mother and child.

That is why there are so many adopted children that go searching later in life for their "real" parent. It would be one thing if she was so certain, but it seemed like Sloane was hesitant. In the end, I do think Sloane was nowhere near ready to be a mom... so I guess it was the right decision.

3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position?

L.J. Gibbs: It's not that I'm on Team Evans, it's that I'm on Team Der. Much as it sucked that Teddy was his second choice (and I'm not upset she ended up getting it), it says a lot about Derek's character and how much he values his responsibility as Chief.

M.L. House: Yes. No offense to certain other characters, but Evans clearly stood out. Giving it to the Teddy Bear just because of personal connections would be unprofessional.

Mrs. Northman: Teddy was his second choice. Evans was his first. Yes, I think his choice in Evans was correct.

4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue?

L.J. Gibbs: You can it's eating away at her. I don't think Cal should acquiesce necessarily, but maybe give it time. They haven't been together that long. Just enjoy each other.

M.L. House: Nope. This is going to drive them apart. Maybe they'll get back together eventually, maybe even with a baby, but this season, I can see this ending in a breakup.

Mrs. Northman: Well - aren't we using 10 pt words! I hope Callie doesn't. She would make a great mother someday and it doesn't seem like Arizona will budge on this one for Callie - so why does Callie have to be the one to make the sacrifice?

  • Dr. Calliope Torres Picture

BABY BRAWL: Team Arizona or Team Callie?

5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither?

L.J. Gibbs: With a nod to recent Grey's Anatomy spoilers suggesting Mark's hookup with Reed ultimately drives him back to Lexie, I don't know if that means right away. This season might end with an Alex, Mark and Lexie cliffhanger love triangle.

M.L. House: Lark. Slexie. Call 'em what you want ... just bring 'em back!

Mrs. Northman: I am hoping she stays with Alex. I am interested in seeing where their relationship goes.

6. Will April be a game-changer?

L.J. Gibbs: Great question. They've done a nice job planting the seeds for something with April ... otherwise why would she even be back on the show? There's a difference between a crush and acting on it, though ... what could she really do?

M.L. House: No. Maybe she'll come on too strong and overstep her boundaries and Derek will have to let her go, but I can't see anything truly "game change" worthy.

Mrs. Northman: If you read my Grey's Anatomy review, then you know where I stand on this one. I definitely think April will be the game changer. It has been building up very quietly over the last few episodes - from her going into Meredeth's closet to get some clothes to her confrontation with Lexie... I bet she is going to at the very least try to do something that will change the lives of one or many on the show.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? You guys are killing me! There are so many that when I read the posts I think the one I am reading is the best until I go to the next post! 2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision? I know young immature girls that decided to keep the baby and with help they are now successful, so I am going to say if that if the person can live their adult life knowing this and "not caring" then she made the right decision. Personally I don't think I could have done it though. 3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position? Definitely not. Teddy has proven in many ways how capable she is and the only reason he looked elsewhere was because he thought she was not interested in the position (huge mistake on Teddys part). She did have a very, very bad day. She is an excellent teacher unlike the other doctor. 4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue? You know, when Callie went to bed and said it didn't matter anymore and cried, it looked to me that Arizona felt really bad and perhaps, she will think about how much it means for Callie and change her mind. 5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither? Ok, let me say it....I am a huge Mark/Lexie fan. However, Alex was a real jerk yesterday and she puts him in his place and he kind of liked it. I like to believe that Alex is acting like a jerk because he may start having feelings for Lexie and he will not "allow" that to happen because of what happened with Izzie. 6. Will April be a game-changer? This was just funny yesterday when she was explaining her infatuation to Mer yesterday. Someone please make her stop! I think she can still go postal specially now that people know this she may feel threatened.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? I actually liked Arizona's "I'm not broken" speech. Yes, it was a little harsh. But it was a poignant moment and it gave layers to Arizona's character. But my favorite line has got to be those three simple words that Arizona muttered when she saw how upset Callie was: "Don't..Don't..Don't." Wow, amazing chemistry there. Sad but beautiful at the same time. 2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision? Yes. She can't even handle feeding the baby! It think she made the right decision, the responsible decision. 3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position? Not sure. Based on what happened in THIS episode, yes. But considering the contributions that Teddy have made to SGMW in the past..im not so sure. 4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue? I have no idea how its going to play out. I actually don't think Arizona would want Callie to give up her baby dreams (i think that's what the "don't"s meant...it was a response to what Callie was trying to do (i.e. bend for Arizona). You can tell Arizona was heartbroken when she saw how upset Callie was. Hopefully these two will find a way to work it out. I love them together! 5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither? I have no idea. Mark maybe? Since i saw promo pics of them together. 6. Will April be a game-changer? Gosh i hope not. She's such a boring character....

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Jackson: Oh, Chief Sheppard, if I am wrong you can spank me - I do hope I am wrong.. 2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision? Yes, it was clear she couldn't handle the baby and in the end it was not Mark's decision to make. 3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position? Yes. I'm glad he didn't choose Teddy even though she got the job in the end. Seattle Grace used to be about the best physicians in the nation and somewhere in all the drama the hospital (and the show) lost its medical edge. Come on, I want another Code Black-esque type of episode. 4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue? I sure as hell hope not. Listen, Callie has appeased all of her partners and I'm getting tired of her being the one to bend. I hope Callie realizes that Arizona may never give her what she wants and since she knows that now she should just move on before she becomes too attached. Honestly, I'd like to see Callie and Mark get together in a real, adult relationship, not just the sex. They are AWESOME friends, they know each other well, they care for each other a great deal, they respect each other AND they have the same desire to have a family.....what are we waiting for GA writers?! Please put these two together because THEY WORK! 5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither? Who cares? I'm not interested in Lexie's love life. I'd like to see Alex heal and move on as opposed to reverting back to his old ways. He has grown so much and I'd like to continue to see that growth develop over time. 6. Will April be a game-changer? I hope so. I thought I read someone on this site that one of the doctors has to deal with a fire in their home during the finale or something...I don't know but I read it somewhere. I would LOVE it if April sets fire to Derek's trailer (dude, not Meredith's house....I love her house and besides it's all that's left of her life with the one parent she knew)! That would be scary.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Jackson: Oh, Chief Sheppard, if I am wrong you can spank me - I do hope I am wrong.. 2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision? Yes, she had no way to take care of that baby, and as much as daddy Sloane would have loved it, it wouldn't have been a good situation 3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position?
I do, though it's kinda cold. I am not a huge fan of Teddy and I feel like she is just there for the Owen Christina thing but not really to stand alone. Evans was a better choice for the good of the hospital...And she IS a good teacher, so I guess that's good since Evans said no. 4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue?
I dunno, I think she might try to. I can't see it working out though, I feel like Arizona has to cave or something major has to happen to make it work. Game changer? 5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither?
Blah I dunno. Lexie needs a good guy, truly. Alex is good but is messy right now, and Mark and her didn't work. So neither 6. Will April be a game-changer?
I kinda hope she goes crazy-stalker on us. It would make for some great T.V. I really don't think she will be a game changer in a way that ruins Mer/Der but it could be interesting to see her go long island lolitta on us :)

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? I'm a Cardiothorasic whore - Cristina. Yes you are...and we love you for it, LOL. 2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision? Yes and no. Perhaps the baby will have a better life with the adoptive parents but I believe that she should've given Mark a shot. But oh, well. To each his own. 3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position? Yes. Loyalty doesn't take a fair game when talking about what's best for the hospital. Richard brought both Mark & Addison, despite Derek's disapproval. Loyalty much? No. It was for the best of the hospital. Even so, Teddy only teaches Cristina (we saw her disapproval of Jackson)...so why is she better? This was the first real decision he made as Chief. 4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue? No and she shouldn't. If it's a big dream of hers and she wants it badly, she shouldn't. 5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither? Hopefully, neither but I see more something between her and Alex than with Mark. 6. Will April be a game-changer? The only game-changer she will be is in the psychiatric ward when Mer locks her up.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Mer/Der: "Chief Shepard" LOL! Loved it 2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision? Yes she did. She was far from ready to be a mother and she knew that so I think making the decision was very smart 3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position? Yes but not for the right reasons. Loyalty was the key issue here and I think Derek doesn't have loyalty to anyone anymore since becoming cheif and it's changing him for the worse but it's also sad that Teddy is second choice in everything (she needs to be proactive) 4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue? No way! Since Callie was married to George she's wanted kids and nobody should change that quickly. IDK about breakup but there are going to be some problems down the road for Callie/AZ 5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither? I hope neither but if I had to choose I want her to be with Mark. Alex isn't ready to jump into a new relationship that fast, if this had happened 1-2 seasons later then I may have actually be ok with them. 6. Will April be a game-changer? Something is going to go down with her in someway (but not psycho type of thing) This is going to be interesting

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? "Speaking of whores, has anyone seen the love-struck intern fawning over my husband?" Just the whole lunch scene, really. It was all hilarious. 2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision? Yes. No question there. And I really loved Arizona's speech in the NICU about it as well. 3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position? Yeah, he did what he had to do, and what he felt was right for the hospital. He was separating personal feelings from work - a lesson I think he needs to teach Owen, because what Owen did was very selfish. 4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue? She shouldn't have to, but she's willing to for Arizona. That's BIG. She loves her enough to give up something that important, something she's wanted her entire life, and Arizona just shuts her down. I hate that it's always Callie giving and giving and giving in her relationships, and always ending up hurt. I don't doubt that they'll break up, and while I hope that Callie is the one to end it for once, I don't see that happening. 5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither? I'm hoping for neither at the moment. Or at least NOT Alex. 6. Will April be a game-changer? Seriously? No. No way. It just feels like comic relief to me.

1. Don't have a favorite choices. 2.Yes because that child will have a better life with out Sloan Sloan in his life and Mark was being selfish. 3. No because Evans was a bad teacher, and Derek was only taking into consideration that Evans has awards and prestige but wasn't taking into consideration that he was a bad teacher. Just because Teddy doesn't have award and prestige doesn't mean that she is a bad surgeon. I think she is better surgeon because she doesn't worried about her ego but about saving lives. Unlike Evans. 4. Callie and Arizona. Frankly there is nothing wrong with Arizona not wanting a baby. 5. Alex and Lexie are growing on my for some reason. 6. No I think April is harmless.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?
"Give me a damn beer!" lol good on Lexie for standing up to Alex. 2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision?
Definitely yes. She was not at all prepared for motherhood. 3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position?
Yes, there's just too much going on with the Teddy/Owen/Cristina love triangle and it's clearly affecting Teddy's job. I didn't like what Owen did to Cristina though. 4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue?
Callie wants a baby so bad and you can really tell. I think she'd be a great Mom and I really hope she does have one eventually, with or without Arizona. I don't like how AZ is shutting Callie down so hard and I have a bad feeling they may not be together for much longer. :( 5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither?
I hope Alex, Mark needs to move on from Lexie IMO. Alex is my favourite character on the show and even though he was an ass last night, I really hope he finds love once he can get past the Izzie baggage. 6. Will April be a game-changer?
It's very possible, she's just getting on my nerves now, almost stalker like lol. It'll be interesting to see what happens with her.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? - Jackson : If I'm wring you can spank me, but I do hope I'm wrong. Hahaha:) 2. Did Sloane (the younger) ultimately make the right decision? - Yes. She's too young to raise a child. And even if Mark says he's gonna be there, we all know he's a manwhore, he's gonna fall into his old self, it's just a matter of time. Cuz he'll fins out that famil-life i too boring. It's better that he get's to know his own daugther instead. 3. Did Derek make the right decision for the cardio position? - Yes. Cuz even if I don't like Teddy Personally, she is very Good for Christina. Cuz Christina need her to learn, and I think that's good that she stays, atleast for awhile til Mark get's back to normal cuz of this adopting thingy. 4. Will Callie acquiesce to Arizona regarding the baby issue? - No, She's not gonna give uo on this baby thing. Even if she said she can live without the babypoop smell in the house, we all know that she don't want to. So I hope that AZ understand how IMPORTANT it is for Callie! I think that it is AZ that's gonna Acquiesce to Callie, not the other way around! Even if I understand AZ, I think that they will have a child together at the end of the series. And even if thet will break up this season, I know that they will get back together again! 5. Will Lexie end the season with Mark, Alex, or neither?
- Alex. I think that she'll get over Mark and fall in love with Karev instead! 6. Will April be a game-changer? Yes. In one way or another. Maybe she'll be a part of something bigger or maybe she's the one who starts something, but I don't think she'll do something totally crazy! But she may have the Key to Merediths house, so that might be a key to what happens with Meredith house? Maybe she'll go there before Derek gets home, lights some candles, tips one over and starts a fire?

Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Episode 20 Quotes

Callie: No it doesn't make any sense. Everyone wants kids and you of all people wear roller skates for shoes, I don't get it.
Arizona: You know what I don't know. Maybe there's something wrong with me. Because its not natural, its not womanly, maybe I am cold and heartless and dead inside.
Callie: I am not saying that.
Arizona: Yeah, but you are.

We're doctors - we're trained to care for human beings and we're pretty sure we know what to look for.

Meredith
