“Poor guy had no idea what he was getting into,” she said on the Ladies First with Laura Brown podcast.

“I remember in the beginning it was really hard for him,” Pompeo recalled. “He was like, ‘This is not what I signed up for. You go to work and make out with that. I like Patrick and everything, he’s a good dude, but like really?'”

Dempsey recently surprised fans when he returned for a cameo appearance in Season 17.

He appeared in a dream sequence when Meredith Grey was suffering from COVID-19.

“Patrick and I have this chemistry where I think even from when we first met, for some reason it just felt like we’ve known each other for a hundred years, and it’s just the same feeling,” Pompeo told Deadline in November last year.
