Did I write that? Who knows? Sometimes I get really hopped up on peanut butter M&Ms and Coke Zero, and Tweet away in a semi-conscious haze.

Whatever the case… while speaking on Monday with Jenna Bans, Betsy Beers and Shonda Rhimes about their newest ABC medical drama, Off The Map (premiering Wednesday at 10/9c), I made certain to ask Rhimes if Addison (Kate Walsh) and Sam (Taye Diggs) might be starting a family anytime soon.
