Happy Birthday, Patrick Dempsey and Shonda Rhimes!

by at . Comments

January 13 is a big day in the Grey's Anatomy world.

Leading man Patrick Dempsey celebrates his 46th birthday today, while creator and executive producer Shonda Rhimes turns 42! Happy birthday to two individuals who have given us so much joy over the years!

Hopefully, Patrick returns next fall for a ninth season on ABC. Is there a more beloved character on TV than McDreamy? Regardless, it's been an incredible run for the actor who embodies Dr. Derek Shepherd.

Rhimes, who has also given us Private Practice, Off the Map and soon Scandal, burst on the scene when she created the Seattle Grace universe way back in 2005. Suffice it to say, TV is better for it.

So thank you, and a very happy birthday to both!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
