Happy 45th Birthday, Patrick Dempsey!

at . Comments

Patrick Dempsey turns 45 today.

We'd list at least that many reasons why the Grey's Anatomy star deserves birthday greetings on this 13th day of January, but come on, you already know them.

The actor, racing enthusiast, philanthropist and father of three remains remarkably grounded despite his fame, which has always been one of his best qualities.

Some of you will probably put "looks" high on the list as well, and he is pretty good as Derek Shepherd. Point ceded. Anyway, have a happy birthday Patrick!

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."
