What does the Grey's Anatomy cast do in between takes? Based on this photo from Patrick Dempsey (Derek Shepherd), it looks like the answer is that they're the same as everyone else: They check their phones!

In this behind-the-scenes Season 9 photo that Patrick tweeted, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey) flashes a big smile while Jessica Capshaw (Arizona Robbins) and Sara Ramirez (Callie Torres) check their phones. Meanwhile, Sandra Oh (Cristina Yang), way at the end of the line of awesome Grey's women, seems to be sidey-eying the camera.

This photo is a great slice-of-Grey's-life, and we're definitely excited for any scene that involves Meredith, Callie, Arizona, and Cristina. We're glad Patrick tweeted it!
