Eric Dane (Mark Sloan) put “McSteamy” into the modern TV lexicon forever, and Ellen Degeneres won’t let him (or Grey's Anatomy fans) forget it.

Eric visited the Ellen show to discuss Mark’s final episode (Season 9, Episode 2: “Remember the Time,” airing October 4), and Ellen surprised him with a special video tribute to McSteamy’s sexiest moments on the show. The twist? It’s really just a slow-motion clip of the moment when Mark first made his (literally) steamy appearance exiting a shower, and just barely kept his towel around his waist.

Eric makes a point to say, “That’s how I’d like to be remembered.” Check it out in the clip below!
