Patrick Dempsey Happy to Be Back

by at . Comments
Happy PatrickHe may not be getting much sleep these days, but Patrick Dempsey is having a ton of fun with fatherhood - and filming Season Four of Grey's Anatomy.

The actor tells Extra that his 6-month-old twin sons, Darby and Sullivan, "are developing beautifully ... It's a lot of fun."

It's a sentiment he echoes when asked about filming the latest installment of his hit TV show: "It's a lot lighter, people are having more fun."

"The energy and the adjustments make a big difference," he says.

Last year, on-set turmoil that finally led to the departure of Isaiah Washington cast a pall over much of the season.

Regardless of how people feel about that incident, fans will surely echo Dempsey's sentiment about moving on and getting back to business.

Definitely pumped to be back at Seattle Grace, Patrick declared to Extra, "I'm just excited to go save some lives again!"

Patrick Dempsey, 41, who races cars on the Hyper Sport racing team, plans to have the twins (and daughter Talula, 5) driving "soon enough."

"You can get those little go carts," he says, smiling, but adds that there'll be "no pressure" for them to race like dad.

Hey hey check this vid!! http://youtube.com/watch?v=_Ef... Patrick wearing the orange bracelet on his right arm??? (Remember his visit to Addison Sewell in the hospital, where he promised to wear a 'stay strong' bracelet in the second episode of season 4!!) It would be sooo nice if he would not forgotten it during the filming of the scenes!!

Oh My God! The new promo is a little bit dissapointing... What about the promo where they kiss? Seemed to be in the exact same scene where Derek tells her she's not ready...Maybe they DO kiss and make up after all!:D:D:D

Oh yeah! I am so glad Patrick is happy to be back at work on GA for the 4th season. It sounds as if things are going well on the set and they are having FUN again! Sounds like we have a great season ahead for us!

oh know....those promos make you wonder alittle about Mer/Der. Maybe when Derek says you're not ready for this and it shows Meredith justing standing there...she will speak up and say YES I AM! Surely, Shonda is not messing with ours heads where Mer/Der are concerned! Lets hope not. Has everyone seen the Extra clip with Lexie being interviewed? OMGosh.....they ask her about hooking up with McDreamy and she says maybe she will and maybe she won't......and she is actually hoping she will because she kinda has a crush on Patrick ALREADY! Not too happy about that Miss Lexie...check it out on you tube......

We need more fun. I hope this means Derek and Meredith are back were they need to be. That was one of his complaints from last season.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith
