Isaiah Washington is slated to return to Grey's Anatomy Thursday, after completing his stint in a counseling program following his use of the word "faggot" in the presence of his gay colleague, TR Knight.

Washington, who plays Dr. Preston Burke, has not been on the set since Jan. 23, the day before he issued a statement saying he would seek counseling "as a necessary step toward understanding why I did what I did and making sure it never happens again."

Washington, 43, has been at the center of controversy since using a homophobic slur to refer to costar T.R. Knight, who is gay. After a firestorm of criticism, Washington apologized, then on Jan. 23 announced: "I have begun counseling."

"I appreciate the fact that I have been given this opportunity and I remain committed to transforming my negative actions into positive results, personally and professionally," he said.


While the type of counseling used for cases such as his can vary, sources say Washington's therapists used the controversial "8th Grade Jerk" technique, in which Washington was noogied and harassed with "More like GAY'S Anatomy!"

PS See this: "Washington, 43, has been at the center of controversy since using a homophobic slur...?" The new rule is no more being scared of words and the whole truth. Instead of writing "a homophobic slur," write "faggot." Also, no more "the n-word." Come on. We're adults, People.

i completly agree with using the phrases 'the n-word" and "homophobic slur" because those are nasty, degrading words that should be removed from our vocabulary. just because were adults doesnt mean we should start using them. noone should, adult or child.

OH NO DON'T USE *THOSE* WORDS! It should all be like Harry Potter & "He Who Must Not Be Named". Words only have power if we GIVE them power. Ridiculous. Say what the hell you want. It's not our RIGHT as Americans, or anything. Ludicrous. Absolutely ludicrous.

So why did you type, "the n-word", rather than type nigger? Clearly you are scared of words. See, ya are a moron, Cord, ya are!

Cord, your non sequitur notwithstanding, answer the question.

I appreciate that an effete metrosexual such as yourself routinely expects your gay "pets" to let a post like the above pass unchallenged, but there are some of us who aren't your lapdogs, who will question your apparent bias in the words you choose.

I like your non sequitur. I love everyone's non sequitur, even the niggery faggy kind. So, when you're done with ^ that mess, I need someone to do my laundry, you interested? It's a paying gig. Payment in the form of one cheese quesadilla.

Judging from the tone and content of your reply, I'll assume that's your nickname for your vagina. In which case, I'm not too very intersted.

You've set the tone, Angela. However, since the original Mollygood.com has a history of cat flap jokes, my comment was apropos.

Riffing on another person's shot only works if your contribution is funny.

That makes no sense whatsoever.

Sheesh, sometimes you just have to spell shit out for people. Paul, look, your face...not so good...it's comedic...a "funny contribution" to society. I'd also accept "a series of unfortunate events".

Do you remember why you posted here in the first place? Something about being full of piss and vinegar?

I'll keep playing though, I mean the more comments and page hits, the better for Cord.

You'll be better off playing with yourself, sunshine. You should be use to that by now.
