Can we deny being disciples of Grey’s Anatomy? No, in faith we can’t. Grey’s Anatomy has changed our lives: we now know what it means to clamp the aorta, and we’ve become experts at performing a tracheotomy right on the sidewalk, on someone who was flattened by a truck, using just our Parker pen. Grey’s Anatomy’s family—Meredith, Cristina, Owen, Derek and all the other doctors—has become our own family. We can forgive them anything—escapades, affairs, wacky diagnoses and outrageous mistakes in the or. Anything, except one thing: not being real.
