Grey's Anatomy Discussed at The Office

by 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.
Kevin Malone, Office Accountant

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

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Meredith
