On the surface, Grey’s Anatomy may seem like its about the medical field, but it more about love. There are plenty of romantic gestures in the show.
From the outside, Grey’s Anatomy might seem like a show that only people in the field of medicine would relate too. In truth, it’s more about love than anything else. Medicine just happens to be a secondary theme. And that’s what makes it fascinating.
Grey’s Anatomy—which premiered in 2005—is one of the longest-running shows on American television and also the longest-running medical drama of all time. It was recently renewed for a 17th season. That means there’ll be many more romantic gestures to come. So far, here are the best ones we’ve witnessed.
It Started With An Icicle
After Cristina breaks up with Burke, life becomes rather dull for her. That’s until she meets Dr. Owen Hunt. When he does an emergency tracheotomy procedure on a patient’s neck using a pen, Cristina is impressed and develops an instant crush.
And when an icicle pricks her, he carries her to the hospital like she’s Lois Lane and he’s Superman about to fly. Well, he’s a super doctor after all. Not anyone can save a patient’s life using a pen. They kiss and so another love story begins.
The Plane Crash Confession
In the finale of Season Eight, a plane carrying Derek, Arizona, Meredith, Cristina, Lexie, and Mark crashes in the woods. Lexie gets trapped under some of the wreckage and becomes the first to die. There’s simply no shortage of tragedy in Grey’s Anatomy.
But before Lexie dies, Mark tells her how much he loves her and that this will never change. He does this with tears in his eyes. But in as much as he wishes she’d survive, it doesn’t happen. Mark becomes one of the many characters to be separated from the person they love by the cruelty of fate.
The Elevator Proposal
Derek had the most creative proposal of all time. When he’s alone in an elevator with Meredith, he pins the MRI images of all the successful surgeries they have done together. He goes on to tell her that he doesn’t hate her because she has a dark nature. He actually loves it.
And right at that moment, he lets her know that he wants to be with her forever. He manages to do all this quite quickly (yet it feels so slow) because a moment like this shouldn’t be interrupted by someone else wanting to go to whichever floor. Sadly, their love didn’t last forever.
Jackson Eloping With April
When you love someone, you steal them from right under their fiance’s nose. That’s the gospel according to Jackson. When April and Matthew are about to become husband and wife in the thirteenth episode of Season Ten, Jackson tells her in front of everybody in the church that he deeply loves her. That does the trick.
The two storm out of the church together so quickly that even The Flash would struggle to catch them. Conveniently, “Total Eclipse of the Heart” is playing on the background. For comedic purposes, Matthew should have run after them while screaming “Bring back my wife!” It takes a lot of courage to steal the woman of your dreams on her wedding day. So, kudos to Jackson.
Derek’s Last Speech To Meredith
Just as he was trying to work things out with his wife Meredith, Derek ended up getting a car accident in Season Eleven. The major issue that caused friction between them was the fact that Derek was always moving between Seattle and D.C. for work.
However, he decided to quit his D.C job. And in one final romantic gesture to Meredith, he said: “You. You’re everything. I love you, and I’m not going to stop loving you. I can’t live without you. I don’t want to live without you, and I’m going to do everything in my power to prove it.” Wow!
