Krista Vernoff Reflects on "Holidaze"

at .

Krista Vernoff, Grey's Anatomy executive producer and the head writer on last week's episode, "Holidaze" has posted some thoughts on the episode on the show's official writers' blog.

Below are excerpts, with a link at the bottom to the full entry ...


Can we talk about the hot hot hot HOT Owen Cristina kissing??? Oh my God, I’m like a fan girl, I can’t help it. And how about the scene where Owen whispered into Teddy’s mouth, “I’m in love with Cristina.” I wrote it. I pictured it. But when I saw it?

I seriously threw up a little in my mouth.

It was SO brutal – and what was so brutal is that Owen didn’t mean to be brutal. He clearly loves them both. Which is impossible. And devastating. I mean it – how could Teddy not love him? Playing guitar one minute, torturedly whispering into her mouth the next.

There’s so much more in this episode – Mark Sloan becoming the sexiest Grandpa on TV and Meredith making a deal with the devil and Arizona and Derek and Mark paying their own hard-earned money to save the life of a very sick little boy.

It made my heart happy, that story. And so did the story of the woman living without a heart for all that time and surviving. Both of those stories were our little gift to you, to send you into this holiday season with a little more hope and optimism.

Arizona Picture
Oh, Der

These two did everything to save their patient. Even pay for his treatment.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was, Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just, it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It, I spooked you. Don't be spooked.
