So far this season on Grey’s Anatomy, our favorite couples have faced nothing but drama and emotional turmoil — and, in turn, so have we. So it’s high time we celebrated the couples who make it work, and to us, that’s totally the unstoppable duo that is Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey). They deserve a little recognition, right?

We certainly think so, and it seems so does creator Shonda Rhimes!

According to E! Online’s spoiler chat, we’ve got a walk down memory lane for the happy surgeons-turned-parents coming up after the winter hiatus. In Episode 13, we can expect “sweet reminders of what MerDer has been through together.”

Considering the fact that we loved the throwback to the prom (and everything that went down that night, i.e. Mer’s panties on the bulletin board) in Episode 4 (“Puttin’ on the Ritz”) earlier this season, we can’t wait! More McDreamhouses made of candles, anyone?

One of our favorite Meredith and Derek moments this season — thus far, anyway — was when Derek decided to take a step back from surgery in favor of more daddy duties so that Meredith could have her time in the spotlight as she researches the printing of portal veins on the hospital’s shiny new 3D printer.

Besides, you know what they say: the couple who makes major medical advances together stays together!

What do you think Mer and Der’s walk down memory lane will include? Sound off below!
