Grey's Anatomy Writers Discuss "Blink"

at . Comments

Ever since Grey's Anatomy debuted in 2005, the show's writers have been sharing their thoughts and unique insight on the episodes they create on an official blog.

It's always fun to read. Below are some excerpts from what Debora Cahn, who authored last week's "Blink," had to say about the various story lines therein ...

So there’s Mark, who’s so sure about who he is, just like we’re so sure who he is, until suddenly he’s a dad. Not because Sloan shows up, not because she’s living on his couch, but because she’s in danger, and something kind of unexpected and inexplicable wells up in him.

Just like that. He didn’t want it. He wouldn’t have called it. But there it is.

And Lexie, who discovers in an instant that she’s kind of still a kid. She sees Mark, ready to take on parenthood, ready to embrace his wacky add-water family, and knows in her gut that she’s absolutely not there yet, and doesn’t want to be there.

And let me pause for a second to say that the look that passes over Lexie’s face before she says “I think our relationship just ended” kills me. Chyler Leigh rocks. 

Teddy and Cristina

And Cristina, who has the horrible realization that having a mentor is more important to her than Owen is – she didn’t know that was the case until she’d already said it.

Until she’d already offered to trade him away. 

She had no idea until it was out of her mouth, but once she’d heard herself speak the words, she knew they were true. She’s become a person who will trade away a man she loves for her work. Does she choose that?  Is she comfortable with that? It doesn’t matter. She is that.

And let me pause for another second and say Sandra Oh, when she says “Fine! Done! Take him!” Holy crap. I knew it was coming and it still knocked the wind out of me.

And I would be remiss if I didn’t mention Chandra Wilson claiming that Sheldon Morris has a quality she’s drawn to. Good lord, the woman is funny.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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.


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."
