    • Jeffrey: (The love of his life, his dog) I've had Bisou since she was 2 weeks old. She came with me to New York. She has a lot to do with me being single- I'm taken.

    • Jeffrey: Katherine Heigl's character was knitting me a sweater on Grey's. Katie actually knows how to knit. In our scenes, she damn near finished half.

    • Jeffrey: (On the death scene for Grey's...) There were rumors I wasn't going to die. The whole cast was sitting around the table reading the script. I fell on the floor- I'm not kidding. I looked up at Katherine Heigl, and she was crying.

    • When asked if he ever thinks about getting married...

    • Jeffrey Dean Morgan: I'm just looking always for characters that change, because I want to get better, as an actor and as a person.

    • On leaving Grey's Anatomy...
      Jeffrey Dean Morgan: It was a grim day, let me tell you. A dark, grim day. I'm still not over it. It broke my heart to leave that show.

    • On his desire to return to work at Grey's Anatomy...
      Jeffrey Dean Morgan: Oh, I came up with lots of ideas for how I could come back. I mean, what if Denny had a twin brother named Lenny, who was a pediatric surgeon? They need a pediatric surgeon in that hospital.

    • On his campaign to keep Denny Duquette alive and well on Greys Anatomy...
      Jeffrey Dean Morgan: At this point, every day I walk in with my picket sign that says, "Keep Denny alive." Denny's been through the ringer, man. Keep the guy alive, for God's sake. Let him and Izzie ride off into the sunset together.

    • Jeffrey Dean Morgan: It was a tough deal for while, working on both shows. I was being scheduled so much on Supernatural, and I was still working four or five days a week on Grey's Anatomy, and so, the schedules would have to be flip-flopped, and we'd work weekends on Supernatural. Any time off I had was spent flying.

    • Denny Duquette: I tricked her into marrying me. How smart am I?

    • Denny Duquette: (Jeffrey Dean Morgan's character on Grey's Anatomy) No, no. We're taking turns. I've decided. It's polite and it keeps me from yelling. When it's your turn again, you can talk... For five years, I've had to live by the choices of my doctors. The guys that cut me open decided my life; there wasn't one choice that was mine. And now, I have this heart that beats and works. I get to be like everybody else, I get to make my own decisions, have my own life, do whatever the damned hell I choose. Now here's the good part, so you listen close, what I choose, is you. You're who I want to wake up with and go to bed with and do everything in between with. I get a choice now. I get to choose. I choose you, Izzie Stevens. Okay, it's your turn again.

    • Jeffrey: (about what he looks for in a mate) Well, someone to laugh with. And fidelity would be nice.

    • Jeffrey: (about his co-star Katherine Heigl in Grey's Anatomy) Katie's one of my bestest friends — love her to death, but she's got a great boyfriend. ... And you shouldn't date your co-stars. It's never a good idea.

    • Jeffrey: (about choosing between Grey's Anatomy or Supernatural) I would bend over backward to be back on Grey's. Any day, I'll choose lying in bed with Katherine Heigl looking over me over getting thrown against walls by supernatural persons at 5 in the morning.

    • Jeffrey: The last decade has been a little rough, so I'm hoping to start this one on the right foot

  • Great actor.

    Have only seen him in "Grey's Anatomy" witch he acted great.

    Jeffrey Dean Morgan is the perfect man. Deep sex voice, ruggedly handsome face with dimples do die for, and don't forget that laugh. His laugh is so infectious it should be reported to the CDC. But we all know that looks aren't everything and Jeffrey's got that covered too. He is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood. Sure he's been around a long time doing bit parts but people are finally giving him the credit (and roles) he deserves. I fell in love with Jeffrey when he was playing John Winchester on Supernatural. He may have only been around physically for one full season but John Winchester is a man you don't forget, thanks to the actor that portrays him. And my fingers are crossed that Papa W. can make an appearance or two in Supernatural's fifth, and most likely final season. Jeffrey's got a few movies yet to come out in 2009/2010. Here's hoping he'll get to grace our movie screens for many years to come.
