Fan parties from coast to coast.

This is the moment that millions of "McFans" have been waiting for—the ultimate Grey's Anatomy coast-to-coast fan party and a chance to ask the cast anything they want!

Lisa Ling hosts the party in New York at Joe's Pub at the Public Theater. Nate Berkus is at Harpo Studios in Chicago. And Gayle King goes to Seattle—the real home of the fictional Seattle Grace Hospital—with a crowd at Peet's Coffee & Tea shop.
Ellen Pompeo

The first question, from a fan in Seattle, is for actress Ellen Pompeo, who plays Meredith Grey. How does she feel about watching those steamy sex scenes at home with her fiancé?

"It's a little bit embarrassing, I have to say," she says. "I thought I was being really clever in distracting him right at 9 o'clock. I asked him to help me with the laundry so that he wouldn't see that portion of the show. Then 20 minutes later he said, 'Hey the show's on and we're not watching it.' I said, 'That's okay. We'll get to it.' He said, 'Oh well, I have a TiVo so that's okay.'"
Katherine Heigl

A viewer in Chicago asks Katherine Heigl—who plays Dr. Isobel "Izzie" Stevens—how her fiancé, musician Josh Kelley, proposed to her.

"He was very sweet. I'd met him doing his music video. It's so Hollywood—I wish we'd met at the grocery store or something," she says. "He took me back to the place we met and set up this whole dinner—well, actually it was just chocolate cake—and got down on one knee and did the whole thing. He didn't know which finger to put it on. He had to ask his father which ring finger to put it on."
Kate Walsh

Back in Seattle, a viewer asks Kate Walsh, who plays Dr. Addison Montgomery, who's the better kisser—McSteamy or McDreamy?

"Geez, that's really tough. I don't get to kiss them too much because they're here one minute and gone the next," she says. "They're both great. You know it's a job—it's not a bad job."
Sara Ramirez

A fan in Chicago asks Sara Ramirez, who plays Dr. Callie Torres, how she got up the nerve to do one particular scene…the one where she had to dance in her underwear!

"Girl, it was not easy at first. I was definitely self-conscious," she says. "Shonda Rimes and Betsy Beers make it a point to show up and support us when we have 'nekkid' scenes. I went up to Shonda and said, 'There is so much cottage cheese up in here.' And she said, 'Work it.' She was very supportive and forced me to get over my issues."
Eric Dane

One big McSteamy fan in New York asks Eric Dane, Dr. Mark "McSteamy" Sloane, who his next "victim" will be.

"Well I hope it's Addison," he says. "That's why I came to Seattle."
Isaiah Washington

A fan in Chicago asks Isaiah Washington what he'd like to see happen to his character, Dr. Preston Burke.

"I would love to see Dr. Burke in Sierra Leone, doing some Doctors Without Borders-kind of work in Africa."
