  • Puttin' down...

    6.0
    So first of all, I will always be a Greys fan. At least, that's what I hope I will be able to be for a while to come.

    But these days I am having more fun watching reruns than the newest episodes. Then there where sparks flying around, it was fun, there was good music, good drama and they didn't seem to take themselves so seriously.

    At first it was about watching Meredith and Sheperd figuring things out. I accept that the writers had to put a stop to that and I like it they are still together. But for me that stopped them being the main characters I like to watch. Then I got excited about watching Lexie and Sloan go through the motions and I had so much fun watching them. That sadly got cut short (snif). And now I'm waiting for the next couple that can hold my attention, that can carry the show for me. There were fun couples: Avery and Kepner topping that list, followed by Alex and Jo, but there storylines where relatively short.

    This episode was OK, but didn't stop me from reading my email and checking out some other websites.

    I hope some new characters will spice things up so the writers can stop with the Avery and Edward combo (I don't understand that relationship at all and they have absolutely no chemistry) and those endless scenes of Meredith and Shephard caring for their babies (if I want to see that kind of drama, I'll switch to Parenthood).moreless

    • Meredith: (closing voiceover) Overture, curtain, lights. This is it... the night of nights. No more rehearsing and nursing a part. We know every part by heart. Tonight, what heights we'll hit on with the show. This is it.

    • (Meredith and Derek compete with each other to be the fundraiser who got the most money)
      Derek: What was that?
      Meredith: What was what?
      Derek: That whole sparkly eye thing.
      Meredith: Well, I can't help it if my eyes have a natural sparkle.
      Derek: You were flirting.
      Meredith: I don't know what you're talking about. Go juggle some balls.
      Derek: You just brought a knife to a gun fight.

    • (The doctors try to charm rich people in hopes of raising money for the hospital and they also compete with each other.)
      Meredith: Cristina. You and I have to join forces so that Derek does not win Avery's money.
      Cristina: (calmly) Prison's changed you.
      Owen: We are in trouble. Avery bet the farm on this party.
      Cristina: Listen to you two. This is not that difficult. Just be charming. Use the same skills you would if you were picking someone up at a bar. (to Meredith) I know you know how to do that.

    • Bailey: (referring to Richard) He's falling apart. He's refused to use incentive spirometry. And-and his right lung is just about ready to collapse.
      Meredith: If he wants to suffer, then maybe we let him.
      Bailey: Oh, so you're gonna let him die because he hurt your feelings?
      Meredith: There isn't anything that he can say to me that I haven't heard from my mother a thousand times. I'm bulletproof. But we can force all the treatment on him we want. It won't make a difference if he decides he does not want to fight for himself. Maybe he just needs to see what it feels like to hit bottom.

    • Meredith: (opening voiceover) As anyone who's ever had their tonsils out can tell you, surgery isn't cheap. It takes a lot of money to keep a hospital's doors open. And when the funds run out, it's on us to get out there and raise some more which means it's time to put on makeup. It's time to dress up right. It's time to get things started on "The Muppet Show" to... Crap. Sorry. I've been watching a lot of children's television lately. But you get the idea.
