    No, that was an actual Washington State ferry. I'll have to rewatch but I'm guessing it was a Jumbo Mark II or Jumbo class ferry.

    Jumbo is right.

    The only ferries I've ever actually travelled on were in my youth when they still had ferries crossing the Sacramento River in places. From my memory those were about the size of the ferry shown in The Outlaw Josie Wales

    ETA: Just large enough for two or three cars

    When you say Washington State, Mariner, are you speaking geographically or does the state itself operate the ferry system instead of contracting it out?

    Double Jeopardy, I really enjoyed it.

    What a show.....

    I can totally relate to them pausing at sight the before them when they first got to the scene. These are people who have never been to a scene little own one with mass casualties, totally out of their element.

    Meredith falling off the pier, wow, wow, wow, I totally was not expecting that.

    I am glad that Shonda is saying this is serious and not a case of Mer popping back up and continuing on as if nothing had happened, it makes it more realistic.

    As for Denny coming back, we all know Shonda gives us enough info to spark our interest and start speculating, but never enough to know for sure what is about to happen. Damn her


    I can't wait until Thursday and the Thursday after that and the Thursday after that and the......... well you get it

    I might be in the minority but I wasn't all that surprised by their response. From some of my past work experience, I know that sometimes the magnitude of what just happened can be a such huge shock that it takes a minute or two for your mind to process and recover from it and for the adrenalin to kick in. To me their reactions seemed pretty normal for a disaster that they are unlikely to see more than once in a lifetime.

    The state itself has operated the ferry system since 1951 when it bought out a private service. The Jumbo Mark II ferries can carry 2500 passengers and up to 202 vehicles while the Jumbo ferries can carry 2000 passengers and up to 188 vehicles. Shonda came up with a very realistic idea for a mass casualty in Seattle. During peak commute hours, those ferries are often close to passenger capacity. Plus, there are cars and people lined up at the piers to fill a ferry back up once it has unloaded.

    The little girl bothers me. Lassie would've been more useful than her. "Timmy fell in the well again?"
