Denny we hardly knew ye...




Damn you, writers of "Grey's Anatomy"! A pox on thee and your houses for squandering ink and paper in order to kill off dear Denny in such a cruel and cavalier manner. Did he not lie abed and endure the all indignities of his illness? Yea, the catheter and the backless hospital gown sought to bring him low, but they could not do it. So you summoned your demonic muses in order to concoct a lonely death for our hero and because you did, we weep openly and unashamed.

Still...cast your eyes upon his last moments in the arms of his beloved. Even in death, is he not fair? Though the breath has been snatched from his lips, are they not full and shapely? His noble brow from which death can ne'er alter the manly architecture rests fair upon the pillow. The soft shadow his lashes make upon his rosy cheek belies the Reaper's touch.

Cry not for his absence, my friends, for Showtime's "Weeds" is still yours for the asking and he speaks as a voice from beyond the grave. Indeed, his presence can be also felt on the Supernatural. Hie thee quickly and without delay to JeffreyDeanMorgan.Net and let your hearts be calmed.

Aw damn. You made me sad all over again. I think I need to go be by myself now (with a picture of Denny).

I'd like to hear him speak sometime when it didn't sound like sandpaper-dry vocal cords rubbing against each other. I just kept thinking "Get that man some ice chips or something!"

Speak? I'd like to hear him speak. I'd like to hear him speak--nay--scream my name in ecstasy while throwing me....

**clearing throat and straightening clothes**

Sorry. I meant to say that it would be my sincerest pleasure to pass him the salt at the dinner table, should he decide to ask me for it.

"Manly architecture"? :) The beautiful thing about GA is that there's very little realism-- here's a guy who's been sick for 5 years and beridden for part of that time, yet he's still very healthy-looking. When he died my roommate and I decided that we would simply imagine an alternate universe wherein he didn't die, and he and Izzie went on to get married and give birth to children with the whitest of white teeth and the best of eyebrows.

I was under the impression that his character on Supernatural died, as well? No? Well then I might have to endure Jared Padaleki just for a gimpse of him.

Janna, I KNOW about the teeth? I thought they were slightly too bright, actually, a la Ross in that episode of Friends when his teeth glowed in the dark from too much whitening.

Yea, verily. :)

His character hasn't died on Supernatural. Although he was in an Alias-like car crash at the end of the finale with his two sons. Pretty sure the boys will live, but John? Here's hoping!

If the thought of having to "endure" Jared Padelecki is too distasteful, consider that you might get a glimpse of Jensen Ackles in addition to Jeffrey Dean Morgan. Yum. :)

*Droooool* I. Can't. Stop. Looking. I'm trying to make this comment quick so I can go back and look at him again.

Anyone else notice how light his eyes are in the last picture? They're not that light in any others are they?

WHY DID YOU HAVE TO REMIND ME OF SWEET, SWEET DENNY???

Why didn't anyone shoot Izzy?

He was a fat putz - get over it!

Did any thinking person thin his character would live? Sheesh.

You're starting to make me wonder if I actually AM missing something by not having cable.

Oh gawd - I really need to start watching this show before I turn into a social pariah. (not like that hasn't happened already, seeing as I've never watched 'Lost' either.)

Does he play the boys Dad? On Supernatural? Well shit, no wonder he started showing up at the end of the season. They killed him off on GA!

God, I adore the surprises you deliver - what a lovely, silly piece. I will never get an RSS Feed because I just love clicking on your name in my bookmarks and feeling that flush of anticipation ... and then oh, it's something new and oh, my, I wish I could write like that ...

I would totally pass YOU the salt any day.

Devastation! I couldn't believe it. I *needed* him to tackle Izzy and marry her and be all swoon'y. You have no idea how much I needed it.

Just heard on the radio. The next season of GA is going to air on Thursday nights instead of Sunday.

just stumbled into your blog - love your writing style... absolutely agreed on Denny. I think I loved him as much as Izzy. I'll be back. :)

With the dearth of any real men on television so glaringly obvious, why would they kill off Denny? I define a real man as one who respects you but won't sigh with an eye towards the heavens when you ask him to lift a heavy box at work. He just does it and continues to respect your intelligence. I can see Jeffrey Dean Morgan lifting boxes until the cows came home. I did wonder about his breath though, but I comforted myself with the thought that an unseen nurse helped him brush his teeth three times a day and, GOD HELP me, gave him a sponge bath too. I have to go sit down in front of a large oscillating fan and cool off now. But before I go, does anyone think there are ANY people ANYWHERE in the state of California smart enough to give this man his own detective show? His office would have hazy light filtering in from the outside and he'd keep a whiskey bottle in his desk drawer that he wouldn't drink from. And even though hot twenty-something babes threw themselves at him, he would be in love with the tired 40 something divorcee who has 2 kids and lives in a somewhat run down bungalow. Yeah that would happen in real life.

I read that the writer for GA is coming up with a new show, starring none other than Jeffrey Dean Morgan, about journalists. He will be one of the lead actors. Now, this I can deal with!!

The voice, the puppy dog eyes, the scruff-faced..the whole demeanor of the man makes me want to dance circles around Izzy and her colleagues in hopes of bringing back our dear departed Denny.

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, we swooning ladies across the globe welcome you back to our tv.'s this Fall as both John Winchester and whatever new role Shonda Rimes has in store for you. (God Bless You Shonda)
