Best Quotes:

Housekeeping is incredibly difficult with three kids. I'm trying to be more relaxed. You'll go insane if you try to have a picture-book house.

I know it can be dangerous, but I love racing. I worry my wife, but she knows it's important to me.

Now I'm just known as McDreamy, I've lost all identity as Patrick Dempsey, I'm now McDreamy.
