Grey’s Anatomy secrets

If you read my last blog you know this is the second blog of a list of Grey’s Anatomy secrets that many people don’t know.

SERIES CREATOR SHONDA RHIMES GOT THE IDEA FOR GREY’S ANATOMY AFTER A DOCTOR TOLD HER HOW HARD IT IS TO SHAVE HER LEGS IN THE HOSPITAL SHOWER.

Rhimes told Oprah that although she had always loved shows about surgery and emergency rooms, the unique angle for her show was sparked after a doctor mentioned how hard it was to shave her legs in the tiny hospital shower. “At first that seemed like a silly detail,” Rhimes said. “But then I thought about the fact that it was the only time and place this woman might have to shave her legs. That’s how hard the work is.”null

THE SHOW IS NAMED AFTER A FAMOUS MEDICAL TEXTBOOK.

Grey’s Anatomy refers to the series’ main character, Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo), of course. But the character and show name were chosen as a nod to the medical textbook Gray’s Anatomy, penned by English anatomist Henry Gray and first published in 1858. The book is considered the seminal work on the human body and is in its 41st edition today—with a few updates from the first edition, of course.

GREY’S ANATOMY WASN’T THE ONLY TITLE CONSIDERED.

Kate Walsh, who played Addison Montgomery for three seasons in Grey’s Anatomy‘s early years, once revealed that other possible titles for the series included Doctors, Surgeons, and Complications.null

SHONDA RHIMES HAD VERY SPECIFIC IDEAS OF WHAT HER CHARACTERS WERE LIKE—RIGHT DOWN TO WHAT WOULD BE IN THEIR HOSPITAL LOCKERS.

Part of the main actors’ character descriptions included the contents of their lockers. Meredith: Stacks of old birthday cards that she never got around to mailing and three alarm clocks to prevent her from oversleeping. George O’Malley: Medical journals and old textbooks. Cristina Yang’s include “a Palm Pilot featured with the latest research articles … high heels to go out in after work, condoms because you never know.”

EVERY EPISODE OF GREY’S ANATOMY IS NAMED AFTER A SONG—EXCEPT ONE.

Since the very first episode, “A Hard Days’ Night,” named after the Beatles song, every episode has shared a name with a song title, including everything from Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power” to Elmo & Patsy’s “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer.” The one exception, so far, was a season 14 episode titled “1-800-799-7233”—the real-life hotline to report domestic violence, which was the premise of the episode.

Things you didn’t know about Grey’s Anatomy

There have been so many seasons that it’s crazy how many things that nobody knows.

Bokhee is a real life scrub nurse.

She may not say much, but she’s been a staple background character of the show for years.

And according to a 2013 tweet from Sandra Oh, who played Cristina Yang, Bokhee really knows what she’s doing.

“The nurse in that scene, Bokhee, is a real surgical nurse,” Oh wrote. “She’s been with us since the beginning. She’s like my 2nd mom, she’s the best.”

The medical Jargan is all correct.

According to McKenna Princing, who wrote about being a medical advisor on the show for UW Medicine in 2017, the series employs real doctors to make sure the writers are getting some procedures and jargon right.

But until the advisors filled in the jargon, the writers just put “medical medical” as placeholder text in the script, according to show creator Shonda Rhimes’ book “Year of Yes.”

Rhimes wrote, “Meredith will say, ‘I need a medical medical to medical!’ And someone else will go, ‘Well I have medical medical.’ ‘Well hand me the medical!”

She also revealed that on the show “Scandal,” it’s “political political.”

Only three members remain from the original season.

After over 300 episodes, Ellen Pompeo (Meredith Grey), Chandra Wilson (Miranda Bailey), and James Pickens Jr. (Richard Webber) are the only original leads who are still on the series.  

Derek and Mer had a real wedding registry.

People reported in 2009 that the fictional couple had a real wedding registry on The Knot.

It encouraged fans to donate to research organizations that Derek and Meredith would have approved of, like the American Academy of Neurology Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Association.

there are many more things that fans had no idea about stick around for next weeks list…

Grey’s Anatomy Scrub Colors?

Scrubs are the short sleeved shirts and pants or gowns worn by nurses, surgeons, and any other operating room personnel when “scrubbing in” for surgery, worn under sterile surgical gowns.

The wearing of scrubs has been extended outside of surgery in many hospitals. Scrubs are now worn by any hospital personnel in any clean environment, for cleanliness and hygiene issues, and are worn under lab coats.

Grey’s Anatomy

All staff at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital have a standardized set of scrubs that is usually worn by the staff, if some form of formal wear is not worn. Different colors in scrubs indicate which department and/or rank they are:

  • Surgical attendings/fellows wear navy scrubs
  • Surgical interns and residents wear light blue scrubs
  • ER residents wear brown scrubs
  • Psychiatry residents wear beige scrubs
  • Nursing staff generally wear green scrubs
  • Scrub nurses generally wear the same light blue scrubs as surgical interns and residents
  • Dermatology residents wear peach scrubs
  • Diagnostic staff (e.g., pathologists, radiologists, techs, etc.) wear gray scrubs
  • OB/GYN attendings and residents wear purple or light pink scrubs
  • Oncology residents and nurses in the oncology outpatient clinic wear red scrubs
  • Infectious disease staff wear yellow scrubs
  • Clinic staff wear turquoise scrubs

The standard scrub caps are light blue fabric scrub caps as worn by residents, and attendings have navy blue scrub caps although some have personalized scrub caps. Paper/plastic scrub caps are available as well, including hair nets available to non-medical personnel in the OR (more frequently the case in caesarean sections where the partner is present).

Private Practice

All staff at St. Ambrose have scrubs, and all medical staff on the show have been shown to wear purple scrubs, and the nursing staff appears to wear blue scrubs.

The female staff at Oceanside Wellness Group also have their own pink/purple scrubs, which are worn by both doctors and nurses. Dell has blue scrubs (similar to that of St. Ambrose nursing staff) as part of his conditions of working at the center and Pete has his own set of black scrubs. Most staff have their own personalized scrub caps.

Notes and Trivia

  • Visitors to Seattle Grace Hospital who perform surgeries or are present in the O.R. wear attending scrubs. However, Colin Marlow wore black scrubs, and Erica Hahn wore red scrubs when she was still employed by Seattle Presbyterian Hospital.
  • Personalized scrub caps can be enlarged and shaped to be more of a hair net to accommodate extra hair, as in the case of Margaret Campbell.
  • Mark Sloan was the only main character attending without a personalized scrub cap. This was later modeled by his protégé, Jackson Avery, who is the only other main character to have completed residency as of season nine not to have a personalized scrub cap.
  • In A Hard Day’s Night, Bailey wore a personalized scrub cap, but in every subsequent surgery until she finished her residency, she wore the plain light blue caps.
  • In Grey’s Anatomy, although surgical attendings wear navy scrubs, OB/GYN attendings still wear pink scrubs.
    • Addison, though she was the OB/GYN head, most likely wore navy scrubs because she’s also the neonatal head, practicing neonatal surgeries.
    • Perinatologists and maternal-fetal medicine fellows do not wear pink scrubs, as they practice fetal surgeries and wear navy scrubs.
    • Some OB/GYN attendings opt to wear navy scrubs.
  • In Grey’s Anatomy, no attending anesthesiologists have been shown to wear personalized scrub caps
  • In Grey’s Anatomy, Some hospitals use other colors for scrubs
    • Seattle Presbyterian Hospital uses red scrubs
    • Mercy West Medical Center used orange or gray scrubs
    • Mayo Clinic and Tufts Medical Center use dark green scrubs.
    • Dillard Medical Center, Cleveland Clinic, and Bauer Army Medical Center used blue-green scrubs.
    • Columbia University Medical Center used turquoise scrubs.

Children’s movies that had the dopest soundtracks.

Growing up as musician I always appreciated a well put together soundtrack in a movie so here we go…

  1. The 1999 Disney film Tarzan

All I’m saying is that Phill Collins and Mark Mancina lit that shit up the song You’ll be in my heart was the best song to ever come from anything disney.

2. The 2006 film Curious George

Jack Johnson is one of my favorite artists every single one of his songs will get stuck in your head not to mention how much of a banger the song upside down from this movie will never not play in my head constantly.

3. The 2019 film Frozen II

I wouldn’t normally put either of the frozen movies on the list but the song Lost in the woods by Kristoff played by an amazing artist Johnathan Groff this song hits different.

4. The 2006 film Cars

This film had some absolute bangers including Real gone by Sheryl Crom, Our Town by James Taylor, Route 66 by Chuck Berry, Life is a highway by Rascal Flatts and many many more the soundtrack to cars happens to be in my Spotify liked music so take that for what you will.

5. 2012 film Wreck it Ralph

Wreck it Ralph was not the best film by far but it did have an awesome soundtrack like Owl city’s when can I see you again, sugar rush by AKB48, and not to mention Rihanna’s shut up and drive also not excluding the complete Rick Roll at the end phenomenal.

Moral of the story here is not every movie is great alone but a dope soundtrack can really elevate a movies greatness.

Feminine hygiene products ranked worst to best

There are plenty of products out there that work for some and not for others. All items listed are my personal opinion but I would love to hear what you think.

Absolute worst being pads one they make you feel like you’re wearing a diaper, they are either placed too far back or too far front and there is always and issue and finally they are just a little too squishy for me.

A little better but not great are tampons they are the less squishy option because they are internal but I don’t particularly like them because as a woman that works long hours you don’t really get the opportunity to run to the bathroom a couple times a shift and change them out, and I don’t even want to talk about TSS that shit is scary, also let’s talk about the painful removal of a dry tampon… yikes!

And finally the holy grail is the diva cup honestly the first couple insertions are terrifying but you get the hang of it and the fact that you get 12 hours no leaks is a beautiful thing and it’s silicone so no TSS also men might find this a bit gross but the fact that the cup has little measurements on it is very interesting and you only replace it annually so instead of spending thousands of dollars on boxes of pads or tampons and just spending $34 on one item for the whole year is magnificent.

I know there are many more items out there but as of right now this is where I’m at. Try them out for yourself and let me know what you think.

Rules for my wedding TikTok trend

I’ve seen this trend everywhere and I decided I wanted to do it so here we go.

I’m not that picky of a person so it’s not a big bad list of demands but it’s a pretty big day so I have some requests.

1. I’m not trying to be rude but don’t bring your kids.

2. Don’t be that asshole that wears white, it’s not your fucking day.

3. NOBODY better be planning on proposing at my damn wedding! HELL NO! You do that and see who stands up and objects at your wedding…bitch.

4. If you’re hanging out with me before do NOT post any pictures of me before I walk down the aisle.

5. No flower toss tackling, the longest married couple gets my flowers.

6. No garter toss, no free show here.

Honestly that’s it for now but my wedding probably won’t happen for a long time. I will not be changing my mind about the rules though so.

Tangled

It has become painfully obvious to me that the whole plot to the movie tangled could have been avoided and now I’m going to tell you about it.

In the movie tangled Rapunzel has magic hair and gets kidnapped as a child by Gothel then for the time that she is with Gothel every year on her birthday her birth parents (the king and queen) light off Chinese lanterns to show that they never forgot about her… Idk something like that but that’s not my point, anyway after some time Rapunzel’s birthday is coming up again and she wants to go see these lanterns so she enlists the help of a run away thug Flynn Rider anyway long story short they fall in love and she finds her parents Gothel stabs Flynn and he chops off Rapunzels hair which kills Gothel and then Rapunzel saves Flynn.

Okay now that we are on the same page of how this movie plays out all of this could have been avoided if Gothel would have told Rapunzel she was born on a different day. Hear me out if she was told her birthday was a completely different month then she wouldn’t have wanted to go see the lanterns as a gift for her birthday I mean yeah she still may have left her tower at some point but she may have never come across the Kingdom of Corona also she may have still met Flynn bc he did climb into her tower but she probably would have just sent him on his way without asking him to take her to see the lanterns.

Honestly I believe that this whole thing was Gothels fault and nobody could change my mind.

Are you ready for sex?

I’m going to start off by saying this is not a religious point of view for me, and i’m not quite keen on the no sex before marriage speech being preached at children or even young adults. I do believe that sex should be an open conversation in all households whether you’re religious or not give your opinion.

In the social media age we live in there is no telling what kids and teens are seeing on their instagram and twitter feeds now with only fans and things like that. Teens especially need more guidance then what their so called role models are saying on tv and on their social media.

So I am here to have the conversation that a lot of parents are not willing to have the “are you ready for sex” talk…

There are no rules about how long you have to be dating or together with someone before deciding to have sex with them. Being ready for sex happens at different times for everyone don’t just have sex because your friends or partner is pressuring you.

Sex and the Law

The law says it is legal to agree or consent to sex from the age 16. If you’re under 16, you can get confidential contraceptive and sexual health services, including advice about an unplanned pregnancy.

If you’re under 13, the situation is different because the law says you can’t consent to any sexual activity at this age.

When to have sex

Figuring out when to have sex is one of the biggest decisions you can make in your life. you are the only person who can and should make the decision.

Just because you have had sex before, even with the same person, doesn’t mean you have to do it again.

How to talk about sex

It’s better to have an embarrassing talk about sex than an embarrassing sexual experience before you’re ready.

There are lots of things to think and talk about, such as:

  • Are you both ready?
  • Will you be having sex for the right reasons, and not because of peer pressure or partner pressure?
  • Do you have contraception sorted? 

Sex isn’t the only aspect of a relationship, and there are other ways of enjoying each other’s company. Discuss what you want and what you don’t want to do.

You can do other things you both like, such as talking, meeting each other’s family and friends, going to the movies, attending sporting events, walking, and listening to music.

The questions to ask yourself about sex

You need to have the confidence to work out how you want to respond if sex comes up and how far to go. Ask yourself if you feel comfortable.

Is it the right time, in the right place, and with the right person? Do you really trust the person, and do you feel the same way about one another?

If you think you might have sex, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Does it feel right?
  • Do I love my partner?
  • Does he/she love me just as much?
  • Have we talked about using condoms to prevent STIs and HIV, and was the talk OK?
  • Have we got contraception organised to protect against pregnancy? 
  • Do I feel able to say “no” at any point if I change my mind, and will we both be OK with that?

If you answer yes to all these questions, the time may be right.

But if you answer yes to any of the following questions, it might not be:

  • Do I feel under pressure from anyone, such as my partner or friends?
  • Could I have any regrets afterwards?
  • Am I thinking about having sex just to impress my friends or keep up with them? 
  • Am I thinking about having sex just to keep my partner?

Being in a relationship doesn’t mean you have to have sex. Even if you have done it once or twice, you still need to make sure your boyfriend or girlfriend is as keen as you are each time.

How do I bring up the subject of safer sex?

When you decide to have sex, there’s the possibility of pregnancy, catching a sexually transmitted infection (STI) such as chlamydia, or both.

Whoever you’re thinking of having sex with, it’s important to talk about contraception and condoms before you have sex. Both of you have a responsibility to have this conversation.

Starting a conversation about the different types of contraception could be a good way to start talking about other issues to do with sex, such as how you feel about it and what you do and don’t want to do.

You could try saying: “I found out there are 15 different types of contraception … If we were to have sex, which one should we use?”

Researching the options together will help both of you feel more confident and in control of the situation.

Find out about the 15 different kinds of contraception

You can get free and confidential advice about sex, contraception and abortion at any time.

Visit your local doctor, community contraceptive clinic, sexual health clinic, or young persons’ clinic.

Call the national sexual health helpline on (300) 123-7123 for details.

Find your local sexual health services

Using condoms

You need to use condoms to reduce the risk of catching an STI, including HIV, whoever you’re having sex with.

I’m going to start off by saying this is not a religious point of view for me, and i’m not quite keen on the no sex before marriage speech being preached at children or even young adults.

If you’re in a boy/girl couple, you should use an additional form of contraception to prevent an unintended pregnancy.

Choosing the right contraception

There are 15 different kinds of contraception, including the implant, the injection, the combined pill, and the progestogen-only pill.

Most kinds of contraception are used by girls, but both of you have a responsibility to talk about this: a pregnancy will affect both of you.

Lesbian, gay or bisexual sex

If you have lesbian, gay or bisexual sex, it’s important to use a condom every time as you can still get or pass on STIs, including HIV.

You also need to know about contraception in case you have straight sex as well.

Reading the signs they want sex

Many people are surprised when a situation leads to sex, so learn to read the signs.

If someone suggests you find a quiet place, makes lots of physical contact, or suddenly tries to charm and flatter you, they might be thinking about sex, even if you’re not.

You need to decide whether you want to have sex. Don’t let someone else decide for you by just going along with it.

Make the decision in advance and stay in control of the situation, especially if you have had alcohol as you’ll be less inhibited.

If you’re not sure you can stay in control, avoid situations that could lead to sex, such as going to someone’s room or somewhere quiet.

Alcohol won’t help

Many people have sex or lose their virginity when they have been drinking.

After a few drinks, you’re more likely to lose your judgement and may do things you wouldn’t do normally.

You may regret your actions in the morning, and you won’t be able to undo what you have done.

People are also more likely to have sex without a condom when they’re drunk. This can lead to an STI or unintended pregnancy.

Teen Pregnancy

In 2017, a total of 194,377 babies were born to women aged 15–19 years, for a birth rate of 18.8 per 1,000 women in this age group. This is another record low for U.S. teens and a drop of 7% from 2016. Birth rates fell 10% for women aged 15–17 years and 6% for women aged 18–19 years.

When most teens are telling their parents they are having sex is when they are telling them that they are pregnant.

It is possible that having a conversation about sex with your parents will help avoid this because they might be able to help provide you with protection and better yet they may provide you with advice on the subject and guide you to make your own decisions on the matter.

I believe that if you’re planning on having sex you’re going to find a way to do it whether your parents are supportive or not, but if you are better prepared and know the consequences and take the steps to avoid them you will be okay.

Top Marriages and Weddings from Grey’s Anatomy.

There has been so many relationships on Grey’s Anatomy, but only some have become actual marriages.

Below is a list of my favorites from the first 10 seasons.

  1. Meredith & Derek- I absolutely loved it when Meredith and Derek gave up their wedding that really neither of them wanted for Alex and Izzie and had a post-it marriage instead.

2. Izzie & Alex- I loved their wedding simply because Izzie spent most of her time in the hospital planning Meredith and Derek’s wedding but when Izzie took a turn for the worst they gave up their wedding and let Izzie and Alex have their perfect wedding.

3. Callie & Arizona- I know their marriage wasn’t the greatest with the whole plane crash and cheating and everything but they were my favorite part of their wedding was when Bailey officiated the wedding because the minister got sick.

4. Teddy & Henry- Initially Teddy only married Henry so that he could have insurance but eventually Teddy really grew to love Henry and was utterly heartbroken when he died.

5. Miranda & Ben- I loved when Webber showed up to take her to her wedding because he didn’t want her to drive herself but then it took a complete turn when Bailey had been pulled away to operate on Adele, the best part of that is Ben completely understood that Bailey had to save Richard’s wife and were happily married by the end of it.

6. Richard & Adele- We all knew that this was not the best marriage but Richard really cared Adele and I know we never saw their wedding but we did get a flashback of him remembering their first dance during Bailey and Ben’s wedding and it was a solid tear jerker.

7. Cristina & Owen- I know that this Marriage wasn’t the best and it didn’t happen at the perfect time… you know after the shooting… I loved how relaxed Cristina was but you know that is just how she was not wearing white because she thought it was “sexist and vaguely racist” I think that this pairing was the best choice for the both of them simply because they grounded each others craziness.

Grey’s Anatomy Quotes That Never Get Old

If we’ve learned anything after watching 16 full seasons of Grey’s Anatomy,  it’s that the surgeons at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital have a way with words. Whether you’re in the midst of heartbreak or in need of a pep talk, take a look at these quotes that touch on love, loss, friendship, and the stress of everyday life. (And if you’re a true fan, challenge yourself by figuring out which episode each quote is from … before binge-watching the series for the hundredth time to confirm your answers.)

Cristina Yang

Don’t let what he wants eclipse what you need. He’s very dreamy, but he’s not the sun. You are.

Meredith Grey

I love you, in a really really big, pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.

Amelia Shepherd

And if you can’t do it, if you aren’t willing to keep looking for light in the darkest of places without stopping, even when it seems impossible, you will never succeed.

Cristina Yang

Oh screw beautiful! I’m brilliant! If you want to appease me, compliment my brain.

Derek Shepherd

You were like coming up for fresh air. It’s like I was drowning and you saved me.

Owen Hunt

The only time I don’t feel like a ghost is when you look at me, because when you look at me, you see me. You see me. This is me.

Meredith Grey

There’s an end to every storm. Once all the trees have been uprooted. Once all the houses have been ripped apart. The wind will hush, the clouds will part, the rain will stop, the sky will clear in an instant. But only then, in those quiet moments after the storm, do we learn who was strong enough to survive it.

Richard Webber

It’s good to be scared. It means you still have something to lose.

Meredith Grey

As human beings, sometimes it’s better to stay in the dark, because in the dark there may be fear, but there is also hope.

Cristina Yang

You are my person. You will always be my person.

Alex Karev

It doesn’t matter how tough we are. Trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives. Trauma messes everybody up. But maybe that’s the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all that is what keeps us moving forward. It’s what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.

Callie Torres

Please, don’t chase me anymore, unless you’re ready to catch me.

Meredith Grey

Change … we don’t like it, we fear it. But we can’t stop it from coming. We either adapt to change, or we get left behind. It hurts to grow. Anybody who tells you it doesn’t, is lying. But here’s the truth: Sometimes, the more things change, the more they stay the same. And sometimes, oh, sometimes, change is good. Sometimes, change is … everything

Derek Shepherd

Breakthroughs don’t happen because of the medicine. Real breakthroughs happen because someone is scared to death to stop trying.

Meredith Grey

Not all wounds are superficial. Most wounds run deeper than we can imagine. You can’t see them with the naked eye. And then, there are the wounds that take us by surprise. The trick with any kind of wound or disease, is to dig down and find the real source of the injury. And once you’ve found it … try like hell to heal that sucker.
