"No Good at Saying Sorry" was a powerful episode of Grey's Anatomy that left us feeling sad and a bit overwhelmed, yet touched with hope. The whole cast - Sandra Oh and James Pickens, Jr. in particular - were terrific and reminded us just what makes the show so good.
Owen can't bring himself to tell Cristina the three words he really feels, so his coping mechanism was to sub in meaningless pleasantries. That went over about as well as Richard's attempt to let himself off the hook when it comes to Meredith and the impact he had on her.

And is Mark Sloan becoming a respectable human being before our eyes?
