Grey's Anatomy Goes Back to High School

ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" often has high school elements, particularly when it comes to the staff romances on the popular series.

But it outdid itself Thursday night when Dr. Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) and Dr. Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) had a fist fight.

It happened after Sloan finalty got the courage to tell Shepherd that he had reneged on a promise and was dating Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh), the younger sister of Derek's girlfriend, Meredith (Ellen Pompeo).

Already distraught from the guilt of losing a patient after surgery, Dr. Shepard punched Dr. Sloan twice and a  NHL-like battle was on.

The two surgeons were jeopardizing their careers since they make their living with their hands so it was serious business.

But I must admit I couldn't stop laughing at seeing "Grey's" turn into an old episode of "Dynasty."

What was your reaction to the "Grey's" edition of Thursday Night Fights?
