Denny Duquette One of TV's Most Memorable "Obit Players" of 2006

at . Comments

As the year draws to a close, Michael Slezak of Entertainment Weekly looks back at three of TV's most memorable TV characters... who met their maker in 2006. One of them is none other than our own Denny Duquette, the heart patient and fiancé of Izzie (Katherine Heigl), played so masterfully by Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

Here's his brief obituary
:

Closet millionaire Denny Duquette died during May sweeps from complications following heart transplant surgery at Seattle Grace Hospital. He is survived by a fiancée, Isobel "Izzie" Stevens, a surgical intern who may have contributed to his death prior to attending a prom. (Don't ask.)

More importantly, though, Denny leaves behind a blueprint for how men can look hot and stubbly while stricken and attached to tubes, heart monitors, and even LVAD machines.

Denny and Izzie

We miss you, Denny. We miss you.

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

You get to a point in your life when you realize you have more yesterdays than tomorrows.
