Patrick Dempsey Tries to Clarify Grey's Anatomy Contract Status, Remarks

at . Comments

Patrick Dempsey was a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman last night and clarified the remarks he made to Italian Vanity Fair a couple weeks ago about leaving Grey's Anatomy after this season.

Kind of. Sort of. Okay, the actor didn't really say anything new: his contract is up, it might get extended, it might not.

But Dempsey was his typically charming self, joking with the host and introducing a clip of him in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. If he does exit Grey's, let's hope this isn't the sort of junk he'll be making in the future...

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
