Addison remarks to Derek that Meredith is "young". In real life, Kate Walsh was born in 1967 and Ellen Pompeo in 1969, an age difference of only two years (and Patrick Dempsey was born in 1966). See more »


Joe: You look familiar. You been in here before?
Dr. Meredith Grey: Once. That worked out really well.
Joe: I know that look. It's only one of two things. Either your boss is giving you hell or your boyfriend is. Which is it?
Dr. Meredith Grey: Both. My boyfriend is my boss, which was a problem. But not as big a problem as the fact that my boyfriend has a wife.
Joe: I'll tell you what this one's on the house.

The One With Derek's Wife...
4 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I love this episode. It's a great followup to the Season 1 Finale. It is just a very entertaining episode, and I really love watching it.

In this episode, Joe, the owner of the bar everyone goes to, collapses and needs to undergo a $200,000 surgery to survive. But doesn't want to do it because he can't afford to pay for it without losing his bar. But George finds a way for him to not pay for it, since it's a teaching hospital and he's technically donating his body to science. Meanwhile, Derek's wife, Addison, has come to put an end to Meredith and Derek's relationship. You can understand how surprised Meredith was to find out that he's married. Also, Dr. Webber is recovering from his operation and has appointed Dr. Burke as his replacement for the time being. And Meredith is very concerned about Christina's secret pregnancy.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Freaking Ridonkulous.
