VIDEO: Relive Meredith and Derek's Best Moments on Grey's Anatomy | TV Guide
Meredith and Derek began their relationship with a romance-free hookup And just as Mer and Der embodied the s as co-workers turned. Medical plotlines were completely secondary to the relationships, and The rising importance of CrisMer saved us from a poorly plotted. Once upon a time, there were a pair of star-crossed lovers named Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick.
You get that, right? You took advantage of me, and you want me to forget it? I did not Derek: I was drunk, vulnerable, and good-looking, and you took advantage. I was the one who was drunk, and you are not that good-looking. Go out with me. Yeah, I came like this close. How would you feel if I died and you didn't get a chance to go out with me? I've been wondering to myself, why are you so hell-bent on getting me to go out with you? You know you're my boss.
You know I keep saying no. This is a game to you, but not to me. Because, unlike you, I still have something to prove. Just leave me alone! I wanted to see if you were alright.
No, I'm not alright! OK are you satisfied? Stop looking at me! I'm not looking at you! You are looking at me! And you watch me and Finn has plans. I like Finn, he's perfect for me and I'm really trying here, to be happy.
And i can't breathe, i can't breathe with you looking at me like that so just stop! Don't you think I'd rather be looking at my wife? She doesn't drive me crazy, she doesn't make it impossible for me to feel normal, she doesn't make me sick to my stomach thinking about my veterinarian touching her with his hands!!!
Man, I would give anything not to be looking at you right now! They end up having sex. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm years old in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours, I want a lifetime! Stupid, corny, idiotic, I can't believe I did this. Stupid, loser, son of a I could be at home instead of Where have you been?! I've been waiting and waiting for you!
And I did this stupid, embarrassing, humiliating, corny thing and I was just gonna tell you that this over here is our kitchen and-- and this is our living room And over there - that's the room where our kids could play. I had this whole thing about 'I was gonna build us a house' but I don't build houses because I'm a surgeon! I got all whole and healed - And you don't show up!
And now it's all ruined cos you took so long to come home! And I couldn't even find that bottle of champagne! Derek holds up the bottle of champagne Derek: Walking towards her This is the kitchen? But the view is much better from here.
And that's the room where the kids will play? I'm still mad at you. And I don't know if I trust you. I wanna trust you but I don't know if I do so I'm just gonna try, I'm gonna try and trust you. Because I believe that we can be extraordinary together rather than ordinary apart, and I wanna be-- Derek cuts her off by kissing her.
After the long awaited reunion kiss Derek: I have to go. In order to kiss you the way I want to kiss you, in order to do more than kiss you, I need to speak to Rose. I want my conscience clear so I can do more than kiss you.
Elevator doors open revealing Derek waiting for Meredith. He has covered the walls of the elevator in CT scans.
This is a CT of Katie Bryce. From a fall during rhythmic gymnastics, I remember. It was the first surgery we ever scrubbed in together on right?
Right here is a treable cysts, tough save but we did it. I kissed you in the stairwell after the surgery. And this right here is where Dr.
Bailey kicked you out of the surgery because she caught us in your driveway in my car. Meredith laughs And right here this was a seven-hour craniotomy and you held the clamp the entire time, never flinched.
That's when I knew you were going to be an incredible surgeon. Beth made our clinical trial a success by surviving. You talked me into putting her under. That's when I knew I needed you.

And this is today. The post op head CT shows Izzie Stevens. See that, right there, tumor free. You got me into the OR. If there's a crisis you don't freeze.
You get the rest of us to move forward. Because you've seen worse. And you know, we'll survive too. You say you're dark and twisty. For all of the rapidly shifting relationships — Izzie had approximately 8, suitors rough estimate by the end of Season 3 — MerDer was tired. The rising importance of CrisMer saved us from a poorly plotted romance arc while reinforcing the female-charged tenor of the show. Meredith and Derek finally got married at the end of Season 5. We thought we were in the clear.
Their marriage was born out of life! This happy, vivacious Meredith was far more likable than the intern we first met. We were told from the beginning that she was a gifted surgeon, but only a few seasons in did Meredith get story lines that reinforced this notion. The actual week-to-week medical cases have always been disposable. But watching Meredith and Derek trying to balance their two kids and their two careers was provocative television.
Once they signed the Post-it, Meredith became a more substantive force. For 10 years, it has been a show about working women.
I really enjoyed watching this couple figure out child care and schedules. This is Meredith and Derek in Episode 17 of Season 4. They were supposed to make it. They were supposed to be extraordinary together. They built that house, and they had the kids.
