Grey's Anatomy Round Table: "Shiny Happy People"

by at . Comments

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

Topics for our "Shiny Happy People" Round Table Q&A include memorable Grey's Anatomy quotes, Owen and Cristina, who Lexie should be with, and the shooter's ID ...

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

L.J. Gibbs: Callie's inspirational words, inspired by patients: "You don't want fifty years to go by and realize that you let the love of your life get away. So go - try!"

M.L. House: "All I'm saying is that you could have a husband." Any time Mark Sloan proposes, he wins Quote of the Week. That's a rule I live by.

Mrs. Northman: My favorite quote was Ben's - Now woman, I am naked and I look good. Are you going to sit there and lecture me or are you going to let me take you into my bedroom and have my way with you. Gosh! Is he a hunk of a man, or what?!

2. Which patient's story touched your heart most this week?

L.J. Gibbs: Betty and Henry. Something about this octogenarian romance worked for me. Partially just newness (there aren't too many octogenarian romances on TV), but it was great.

M.L. House: It may be the Jonas Brothers-loving tween in me, but give me Demi Lovato or give me death! She was fantastic.

Mrs. Northman: The patient that had half of her face burned off. That is really sad - especially because it was caused by something we all do - texting and driving. What a wake up call!

3. Bailey and Ben: Will it last?

L.J. Gibbs: You'd think if this romance were going to fizzle out, they would have just let this one fade away, Izzie style, with no on-screen resolution. With this week's developments, Ben is either going to become a bigger fixture or meet a tragic end.

M.L. House: This may be off the map, but I'm gonna take a wild guess and say no. Ben will bite a bullet (literally!) in the season finale.

Mrs. Northman: I hope so! We know Ben is going to leave to be on another show, but it is so nice to see Bailey with someone as hot as Ben!

4. Who do you want Lexie to end up with?

L.J. Gibbs: Mark. Alex's "I'm turning into a duck" bit can't compare with Mark's quasi proposal: "I'm still in love with you. I tried not be, but it didn't work. And Sloane's gone, there is no baby, and I don't want to sleep around. I want another chance." Say yes, girl. Say yes.

M.L. House: Mark. Karev may be trying to be a duck, but let's face it: he's a goose, or whatever bird can't actually settle down and remain loyal because his wife just filed for divorce. Mark is finally ready to commit.

Mrs. Northman: I go back and forth about who I want Lexie to be with - right now, it's Alex. Last week, Alex was so great to her. This week? He tells her sister that he is a duck. What gives?

5. Should Owen and Cristina break up?

L.J. Gibbs: My colleague M.L. House will invariably point to the lack of a suitable couple name as the reason for Owen and Cristina's problems. Well, I've got a nickname for just him: Samsonite. I know love is complicated, but this guy's got so much baggage, it's ridiculous.

M.L. House: Absolutely. Oistina? Cwen? These two were doomed the second we couldn't come up with a couple's nickname for them.

Mrs. Northman: Yes, Owen and Cristina should break up and she can get it on with Jackson! Owen clearly has far too much baggage!

Running Yang

Should Cristina run far away from Owen and his issues?

6. Looking ahead to the season finale: Who is the shooter?

L.J. Gibbs: The Ghosts of George O'Malley and Denny Duquette, seeking revenge on the doctors who couldn't save them. Just kidding ... the show would never do anything that ridiculous (close, though). In all seriousness, when the slow-motion bullets fly on Thursday evening, it won't be courtesy of anyone we've met up until now.

M.L. House: Probably the same dude that took down Burke a few seasons ago.

Mrs. Northman: April is the crazy shooter!!! Wouldn't that be something? That or Mr. Clark - the obvious choice.

What do you think? Weigh in with your own answers/comments!

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Mer to Cris 'This is your room' 2. Which patient's story touched your heart most this week? Betty and Henry 3. Bailey and Ben: Will it last? No. I don't think so. He is going to go to another show so I think he is one of the ones that are going to die in the SF. 4. Who do you want Lexie to end up with? I don't know. I really am liking Alex and Lexie but last episode Mark melt my heart with his semi proposal. We'll see.. 5. Should Owen and Cristina break up? Yes. She deserves better than him.

1 - Mark's "proposal" either that or when Meredith told Cristina which room was hers. 2 - Arizona and Callie 3 - No, I don't think it will last. I think they are good together. I like how he doesn't let her walk all over him. I want them to work, but I think something might happen to Ben in the finale. 4 - Mark and Lexie. I wasn't a fan at first, but they grew on me and while I like seeing Alex grow, and I like how he has been with Lexie lately, I don't think he's anywhere near ready to move on. 5 - I loved Owen and Cristina at first, but the more I watch, the more I want him with Teddy. 6 - Is it possible Tucker could be the shooter? Who else would have a reason for grabbing Bailey?

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?
- Agree with L.J. Gibbs!
2. Which patient's story touched your heart most this week?
- I like the old couples' story ;) They're really sweet.
3. Bailey and Ben: Will it last?
- Honestly, no. Ben's gonna be in Off The Map anyways.
4. Who do you want Lexie to end up with?
- I would feel really bad for Alex if Lexie were to end up with Mark :( But I like Mark and Lexie!
5. Should Owen and Cristina break up?
- Big O/C shipper here but I think they should breakup (temporarily :P). Hopefully this breakup will knock some sense into Owen's head so that he wins Cris back. And Teddy is really annoying.
6. Looking ahead to the season finale: Who is the shooter?
- I'm gonna go for the obvious choice, Mr. Clark... cause I don't know who else can be the shooter.

@Jennifer So did I;) To bad that show got cancelled... I LOVED this episode! There was a lot of great quotes, and the Betty Henry story was so adorable! Can't wait for the season finale! (Even if I really want to see it I really don't, cuz that mean that we don't have any greys anatomy over the summer... until september or something!)

Lexii

:( I am very sad that you don't know the very *obvious* name for Crsitina and Owen. Lol. But it's k. People ship whoever they want so, whatever. :) Crowena/Crowen/Owenstina FTW! :) But it will inevitable fall apart. *sigh* Yes, I agree with Kevin's Biggest Fan (though YouTube is the courtesy for me :P). If I don't know my ship's official name, I make up my own. So, I got Crowena and Izzex (Izzie and Alex) lol. 1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?
(This makes me laugh each time)
(Ben is humming the same tune as Bailey from a moment before, Derek and Mark exchanging knowing glances. Ben leaves the elevator.)
Mark: Go, Bailey!
Derek: Indeed.
xD Love that so much! 2. Which patient's story touched your heart most this week?
Can't pick. :P I really like the hair-burned victim case because it tells of sucking up and stuff but I'm such a sucker for love stories and I definitely loved Betty and Henry's story. :) So, both. :) 3. Bailey and Ben: Will it last?
Sadly, no. D: Maybe, he'll try to save Bailey in the season finale and that's his ending on the show! He'll leave on a high note. :) Just like George did... (cries [billionth time if I even mention George]) 4. Who do you want Lexie to end up with?
Crap, I've been going back and forth because LexLex is really cute and Slexie is cute but annoying as hell to me. -.- So, I wish for LexLex. :) 5. Should Owen and Cristina break up?
NO! A MILLION TIMES NO! But I fear they ARE going to break-up. If they are, :) Cristina get Jackson! 6. Looking ahead to the season finale: Who is the shooter?
(sigh) It could be so many people. Fatal Attracter and Mr. Clark are too obvious so, I'll say Owen. (sigh) why? D:

Mcintern

Owentina - duh!
1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode?
*After Ben gets off the elevator while humming the same song as Bailey...*
Mark: "Go, Bailey."
Derek: "Indeed." 2. Which patient's story touched your heart most this week?
I'm not sure the patient so much touched my heart as the case, but I loved how Alex didn't give up on Demi Lovato's character, even after everyone (even Arizona!!!) wrote her off as crazy. As lame as her repeated "I'm good" was, it was really cool to see Alex make such a big difference and be a great doctor. 3. Bailey and Ben: Will it last?
Sadly, I don't think it will. But Bailey deserves someone great, and I really hope someone can step up to fill that role for her. 4. Who do you want Lexie to end up with?
I feel bad for Alex saying this, but I think Mark and Lexie are made for each other. We all know this, and the sooner it ends the sooner Alex can go back to finding the woman who makes him happiest. We're running low on options though. 5. Should Owen and Cristina break up?
I don't think they should - Owen and Cristina, while a really weird couple, do seem really good together and I love what he brings out in Cris. That said, things cannot stay as they are, and they're going to need to work through this Teddy issue pronto. 6. Looking ahead to the season finale: Who is the shooter?
Part of me wants to say it's Owen, but that would be so extreme and it would irreparably damage his character and his relationship with Cristina. I don't think it's Mr. Clark because it was just last season where we saw Derek come to grips with his role in a patient's death. Maybe it's some random person we don't know?

Cristina and McGirlyboy Jackson? I don't think so. She prefers Men rather than Dr. Suess quoting Boys who play with dolls.

1. What was your favorite Grey's Anatomy quote from the episode? Ben: "Now Woman I am naked and I look good. Are you going to sit there and lecture me or are you going to let me take you into my bedroom and have my way with you." mmm mmm is all I say to that 2. Which patient's story touched your heart most this week? Betty and Henry.I'm a sucker for love stories from afar or past 3. Bailey and Ben: Will it last? I wish I really wish it could but since Jason George is joining off the map I think he will be a casulty for the SF :'( 4. Who do you want Lexie to end up with? Nobody @ this point. Mark and Lexie aren't on the same level in their lives so I don't think it would last very long. And I have been saying this repeately: Alex is not ready for a relationship with anyone right now so I don't want them together either (and katy I totally agree with you on wanting lexie letting down Alex without getting hurt) 5. Should Owen and Cristina break up? God yes! I didn't care about them @ first but I can't stand them right now because of this triangle ugh. 6. Looking ahead to the season finale: Who is the shooter? Mr.Clark or shadow shepard are my guesses but let's wait till the finale to find out

Umm...yess, Lexie...please pick Mark! Alex was good to her last episode, bad to her the week before, bad to her during Ava time. So...Lexie, choose Mark.

Grey's Anatomy Season 6 Episode 22 Quotes

Ask most people what they want out of life and the answer is simple - to be happy. Maybe it's this expectation though of wanting to be happy that just keeps us from ever getting there. Maybe the more we try to will ourselves to state's of bliss, the more confused we get - to the point where we don't recognize ourselves. Instead we just keep smiling - trying to be the happy people we wish we were. Until it eventually hits us, it's been there all along. Not in our dreams or our hopes but in the known, the comfortable, the familiar.

Meredith

You don't have any fat.

Alex
