Grey's Anatomy Discussed at The Office

at . Comments
Grey's Anatomy continues to earn its place in the popular culture lexicon. The show was referenced on last night's episode of The Office, NBC's hilarious mockumentary centered around the mundane lives of oddball employees at a Scranton, Pa., company.

Having undergone a test for skin cancer, emotionless accountant Kevin Malone (Brian Baumgartner, pictured) is awaiting the results when asked about his hangdog expression by co-worker Kelly (Mindy Kaling, also one of the show's writers).

When he tells her he might have skin cancer, the slightly-airheaded Kelly replies, "Really? I was watching Grey's Anatomy and one of the patients was a lifeguard who had skin cancer. That's so weird!"

This is the second NBC show to mention Grey's Anatomy in recent weeks, following the lead of offbeat medical sitcom Scrubs. Both shows are highly recommended by the Insider, and not just because they give props to Meredith & Co... although it doesn't hurt.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
