Read the full episode recap

GREY'S ANATOMY OPENING QUOTE:

Mother called it the greatest and most terrifying moment in her life. Standing at the head of the surgical table, knowing that the patient's life depends on you and you alone. It's what we all dream about. Because the first person that gets to fly solo in the OR ... kind of a bad ass.


GREY'S ANATOMY ENDING QUOTE:
We enter the world alone and we leave it alone and everything that happens in between we owe it to ourselves to find a little company. We need help, we need support, otherwise we are in it by ourselves. Strangers, cut off from each other, and we forget, just how connected we all are. So instead, we choose love, we choose life, and, for a moment, we feel just a little bit less alone.

Do you think they will make a good couple? Do you think they'll actually go the distance?I did like him with Callie....so it's interesting that he is hooking up with Lexie or going that route.

#1hotchfan What are you thoughts on the Izzie/Denny/Alex storyline? 13 Feb 27 2009, 8:57 AM EST by Mark/Lexie4eva

All I know is I wish Denny was truly alive. The storyline is a bit bizarre but to hear Alex admit her loved her...whoa! These 2 are coming full circle considering how they started out when they first met.
